    . . . And with the title of this thread, I date myself appropriately. I'm a sixty-one-year-old woman with a long, fraught relationship with cigarettes. I started smoking when I was very young, spent a couple of decades as a two-pack-a-day smoker, then quit for eleven years, and then--oh so stupidly--started up again. About ten years ago, I mostly quit again, smoking two to four packs a week and sometimes going for months without a cigarette. Earlier this year, I decided to give vaping a try. Turned out that I like it fine and haven't had a cigarette since I began. I've been using a Halo G6 since April and am now ready to switch to a mod. My style is MTL, and I'm leaning toward the Innokin Zenith tank (I considered the Aspire Nautilus 2 but having to empty the tank to change the coil put me off it). Now I just have to decide which mod to get. I have a lot of research ahead of me.

    tl;dr Hello. Happy to be here.

    Howdy and welcome :)
    The good news is with a mtl tank like the zenith you have low enough power requirements that you can use basically any 510 mod you feel like. This leads to some follow up questions:

    -How much do you want to spend?
    -Do you want to use replaceable batteries and a charger(recommended)? Or do you want a plug in LiPo mod?
    -Do you want to be able to use TC either now or in the future? (Not sure if the zenith has SS coils or not)

    Wow, had to look up that G6 to see what it was. Coming from the G6 to full blown MOD might be quite a change for you?

    Have you heard of the latest craze in vaping 'PodMods'? Might be just right for you.

    Take a look at these 2. Both have long lasting, inexpensive and widely available replaceable coils and refillable tanks (Pods). Button activated not draw activated.
    Both can be found at much better price than the manufacturer site my links lead to.


    Aspire Nautilus AIO Kit - Aspire® Official Site

    Aspire Spryte AIO Kit - Aspire® Official Site

    There are a gazillion others out there but these two with adjustable airflow may be a good bet for getting the draw your accustomed to?

    Edit: whoops, just now saw your replaceable battery requirement.

    Thanks, Bradder!
    1. I'd like to spend as little as possible to get exactly what I want. Ha.

    2. I definitely want replaceable batteries and a charger. The idea of tossing a mod because the battery died makes me shiver.

    3. I don't know much about TC vaping, though it seems to have some nice advantages. But if the tanks best for MTL vaping use coils that aren't compatible with it, I have a feeling I'll survive without it.

    Hi, Dougiestyle. "Sympathy for the Devil" was one of my favorite songs when I was fifteen. The Velvet Underground's "......" beat it by a mile, though, and, come of think of it, "And I guess that I just don't know" would have worked quite well as this thread's title.

    Would you prefer a smaller single battery or a dual battery?

    Probably a single battery. I'm housebound, so I can charge at will, and the single-battery mods seem to be cheaper. Plus I don't need masses of power.

    And welcoming, too! I am pleased to be here.

    I've really come to the conclusion that this is a myth perpetuated around here. You're probably 90% more likely to have a mod die from droppage than battery death. I have a 4-5 year old internal batt mod that still works like new. The real weak spot is USB charging connector. Easily avoided thru use off magnetic USB connectors.

    One of the reasons I'm thinking of making the leap to a mod is that I'm really tired of the wimpiness of the G6. I often feel frustrated when trying to get a decent lungful. And I like the idea of having something that will last a good long time.

    Now that's interesting and opens things up quite a bit. I don't go out much, so I'm always near an outlet, so with the right charger I'd be set.

    :) The newest pods are far from wimpy. My personal fave is the Renova Zero which was quite the little cloud chucker until I figured out a way to tame it down to my MTL vape style. The modification I had to do to it is the reason I didn't mention it.
