    Hello all,

    I joined here a long time go when 510s and eGo's were big, Spring 2011 I think. Years, and a new artificial hip, later I got the gist that I needed to update and/or stock up.

    Juice I have no trouble with since I've been getting liters of unflavored VG direct from the lab and have already been in phone contact with them regarding this.

    However, my really e-cig is really old style and soon (3-6 weeks) here I will be out of atomizers for the eGo-C pass through I've used for years.

    Here's the thing. I am so confused. I have no idea what to buy.

    All I can do is try to give my likes and dislikes and hope someone can help me out with deciding what the next thing is I should get.

    Basically I am still using an eGo-C Pass through ...

    Likes:
    - Easy to assemble, disassemble and clean
    - Easy to use
    - Delivery is key - throat hit is not a consideration.
    - Pass through would be nice, but not a requirement at this time

    Dislikes:
    -Computerization that is superfluous
    -Bright and flashy that serves no purpose.

    I guess I have to give up on whistle aka flat tips. What I am looking for is something pretty dependable. Price I would like is between 30-80 dollars US.

    Sorry if I sound like some throwback, but I never really got into the mechanics of e-cigs, once I had a workable setup I was happy.

    Any assistance in the form of education, links, whatever, will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I was not very clear in this OP so I will include the link to the exact product I have been using for 11 years here;

    You probably aren't aware but as of today, the vast majority of online shop have stopped shipping and many have shut down. This is due to a mail ban that was passed in December that forbids USPS from shipping vape related items. UPS, FedEx, and DHL have followed suit. The sites that haven't stopped have limited shipping areas, high shipping rates, and unsure futures. Really the only practical place for you to get supplies is your local vape shops, so it would be best for you to see what they carry. Sorry to be the bearer of sad tidings.

    Tough time right now.

    Couple questions:

    - What exact tank (clearomizer) are you using?

    - The eGo batts, are they just regular or are they variable voltage?

    - Are you willing to go with a small box mod?

    - Do you want something with a replaceable battery or built-in battery?

    I found myself in the same boat 2 months ago. Started vaping in 2013 and soon found Vision Vivi Nova tanks and paired them with bigger ego batteries. Been using those on 2600 Ego pen styled Clover Overlord batts for a number of years. By the time they quit making the coils, I fortunately had about 250 of them.

    That set up worked well for me so I never upgraded. I especially liked the fact that I could get several weeks out of one coil with regular cleaning and dry burning. At any rate, a couple months ago, with shipping ban on the horizon , I realized I should stock up. I upgraded substantially and have been thrilled with the improvement. I stlll have 200 VN coils and I'll use them but I'm really glad I've got other options now.

    Since it's not likely you'll be able to receive online orders now, I agree that your best option is to visit and/or call a local vape shop and explain what you're looking to find. With your budget, you'll probably find something you like very well and hopefully will be pleasantly surprised that you stepped out to find something new that meets your criteria - easy to assemble, disassemble and clean.
    Sorry it doesn't seem like I can be of much help. Only want to let you know that you can likely find something you will like very much.

    Might help OP to know what you bought. They are coming off of on old, low powered gear as you did so what you bought might also be a good fit for them.

    I decided to go with external battery mods. Single battery, Aegis Solo and AsMODus. Liked them so well I bought several more.

    For tanks, I bought Zenith 4ml and Zenith Zlide 4 ml, many of them. They're easy to use and assemble and I can't believe what I've been missing all these years. The Zenith top fill can be a little hard for me to twist, but that's only because I got old fingers still doing 11+ hrs of hard finger work every day. I also bought some Aspire Tigon tanks. I think they quit making those but you can still find the coils. Yes, now I have a boat load of coils for these three tank versions.

    Being so pleased with the new mods, I decided to go ahead and buy some dual battery, the Vaporesso Gen and Aegis X. Liked them so well I bought several more because I'm looking many years down the road. Two months ago, I didn't know the first thing about new gear. I came here, read like a mad woman, and made a friend who answers all my panicky questions.

    Most of my new acquisitions will be boxed up and out of sight until they're needed but I'll sleep better at night knowing they're there. I figure I got 20 yrs left in this life. I'd like to go out with a vape.

    I'll send you a PM (private message) before noon. At the upper right of any page on ECF...you'll see your "Inbox" with an envelope in front of it. When a message has come in...it will show a number in a red square. Hover over it with your mouse, and a drop down box will show you a link to click on...to read the message and respond to it.

    I'm very familiar with the set-up you've been using. I know for sure that I can help you with it, and more. Please...wait to hear from me, and you won't have to entirely give up on whistle tips! :)

    Was aware of it due to an email from my vape liquid supplier. Secured that, life intervenes, back at the comp and trying to secure hardware.

    Thanks

    No tanks, cartridges with plastic whistle tips. Joy-tech product page yes, I have exactly that product shown;
    eGo-C Starter Kit - Joyetech Electronic Cigarette

    Regular, no variable voltage. Built in battery. I had variable voltage and they all failed on me while the regulars are still firing. Not an electrician so left the variables in a box somewhere.

    Not really into mods. I really, really want something simple like the eGo-C. Open the product box, put it together and use. Take apart, clean in minutes, use again. I am so not into the "thing" I just want it to deliver.

    I'm not a tinkerer, actually avoid any tinkering because at this stage in my life I have trouble remembering the order things go back together. I have a vacuum sitting in a closet that can attest to that.

    I should have put the link to what I was using in the OP, it was late and I didn't know if I could find the page or if it was still there. I'll fix that but here is the link to exactly what I've used for the last ten years so you don't have to scroll up;

    eGo-C Starter Kit - Joyetech Electronic Cigarette

    I'm really looking for assistance with experience. I started this entire vape experience with a mall e-cigarette my husband got for me in 2011. I knew e-cigarettes would finally solve my problem of wanting to quit paper tobacco cigarettes, but it was an unsatisfactory experience so, I searched online.

    Found this forum and got my first eGo starter kit. Since they were so easy to use and clean I stayed with eGo for the duration, but, things have changed remarkably and I don't know what compares to the eGo setup.

    Are there similar? Better? In which way?

    I would suggest a pod system. There are numerous ones and you can watch the Member Classifieds and Swaps section for one.

    In looking around, I noticed Element Vape - Online Vape Shop - Vape Mods, Kits & E-Liquid is still shipping to most states. I have done business with them before. I would get one of their pod systems and as many coils as you can afford. Shipping is free at $100. Avoid anything by Smok, they do not have a reputation for good products. Innokin and Vaporesso are good brands.

    Looks like JCinFLA has your back on this, so I think you have nothing to worry about.

    I still have my first kit which was the same as yours. It still charges. I don't think I have more atomizers or tanks. You're welcome to it.

    You might want to look into something like this eGo AIO - Joyetech Electronic Cigarette
    It doesn't come with a flat tip, but you can interchange the tips for a flat one (cheap). There was one in the classifieds.

    I don't know what state you're in or what your options are. One of the problems with anything you get will be continued support, such as atomizers or coils. The future is hard to predict right now.

    You can buy old gear online (maybe) but you will be back at square one in a year or less. Not to mention most likely you will be buying old stock and the batteries may not last long.

    And you will never find any of that stuff in local vape shops.

    Your absolute best bet at this point in time:

    Go to some local vape shops, tell them you want the simplest and most popular refillable pod system they have and learn to like it.

    Why the most popular? Because when you need new atomizer heads they are more likely to have them in stock when you need to buy more. If they don't another store probably will.

    That makes it easy.

    My suggestion for you: Uwell Caliburn G pod system

    Good luck.

    Thanks for your reply.

    A friend of my husband was pushing SMOK so yeay! dodged a bullet there. Should have known since he doesn't believe there is any ban - go figure on some folks not at least checking the Internet.

    What are coils? Similar to atomizers?

    As an example: Caliburn G pod system

    From left to right:

    1) Battery unit,
    2) replaceable coil (aka atomizer)
    3) tank (aka pod)

    I'm in the not so great state of California. Would have moved before now but a broken hip delayed that considerably.

    At any rate, I think I may want to upgrade to something more modern due to the fact that I was already having a hard time finding atomizers for my set up. You keep the kit, who knows, we all may be falling back to old tech in the long run.

    (I'm putting commas in my sentences, I swear, but sometimes they are vanishing when posted)

    In random ruminating I've thought that I could smear the vape liquid on my gums as some older folks did with some other substances in the past - LOL at self. ;)

    I'll look at the Joye site. Thanks!

    Hey thanks! This is the hard part - knowing all the parts so I get the right stuff and enough of the parts that need to be changed.

    Some store sites have the parts and accessories listed somewhere in the same page as the main unit, but some do not making it difficult to figure out.
