    I have the Orchid 30 watt pod system. I have always used 50/50 salts in it. However, I have been thinking about switching to a higher VG freebase. Can it handle it? Most pod systems cant, but I feel like this one may have the potential to handle it. Let me know.

    What do you mean "can't handle It"?

    I was just asking if it could handle it because its near counterpart the Orion cannot as it gets almost instantly burnt in the process

    I believe that many newer eliquids may be higher vg, especially salts. Burnt is often lack of proper priming or too much power too soon.

    My first three Orchid pods gave dry hits. The fourth one was dead..didn't make contact. The fifth one worked, but then the pod retaining clip inside the mod broke off. Had to secure the pod with a rubber band to get a vape. Got fedup with the rubber smell, so I threw everything in the trash where....it belongs.

    The Orion been working for me for months now. I used about 30 pods on it.
    The thing about the Orion is don't set the power to high. Set it on escribe to a max of 11W. Boost at max 3 (for me) and warmth around 4. Anything more than that, and the coil burns.

    I have had nothing but good things with my orchid for salt use. Each pod lasts me about two weeks before I start to get a dry hit (with salts) my orion pods last about one week before it starts to taste funky. Did you throw the orchid away back when they had all the problems with it? They have really buffed the situation now and tons of people like it bettee than the orion including me. Of course.. its all personal preference at the end of the day. I cant help to think that you jai hazed it too early

    Yeah mate I hate the thing with a passion. Its gone and forgotten. Nothing but bad memories. I waited 106 days before I had it (pre order...), only to be met with endless problems.
    Was in contact with the manufacturers by facebook and email. They took 3 weeks to respond. Wanted proof of purchase. Gave them that and never heard back from them again.
    That thing is bad news to me !!!
