    Sweetie, I am a soon to be 61 year old grandma to 9.

    I have 50 REO's.

    I can make them all work like a charm! And I can rebuild coils so good my vape is superb!

    Not tough at all to run a REO. Dependable, hassle free and hands down the best way to vape!

    I just got my reo yesterday and have been vaping like a fool all day today! I didn't even bother to form the microcoil and it's mounted distorted but I'm vaping clouds! Don't forget to get the big button upgrade like me, oh well guess I'll just have to go back and check out the rest of the accessories

    Congrats and welcome to Reoville!

    The coils get easier and easier to make pretty quick.

    I'm looking at Reomods.com, and can't find the VV Reo Grand. Does Rob still make them?

    If I remember correctly it was because he doesn't like the failure possibilities with a hard wired chip. If it dies, the mod is dead until sent in and repaired.

    That's why he's working on an 18650 mod that can run a kick and also give the user an option of running a shim in lieu of the kick.

    No more dead mods :) if the kick fails, you just use the shim until you install another kick. Ingenious. :)

    Thanks Supa X.

    But I'm confused. Is he working on a revised version of the VV Reo Grand? Or, is he incorporating the kick to use in any Reo Grand?

    It will be a different mod designed to take a kick or a spacer. Kind of a moddable VV REO.

    If the Kick fails or as the technology changes with new versions of it, it can be easily replaced.

    As Super_X said, rob doesn't like mods with electronics because its a point of failure and for a manufacturer, its also a point of service and maintenance.

    :facepalm: oops, I didn't know what thread this was... and here I am...:facepalm:

    Robert is not doing another VV Grand.

    But he has retrofit some of our VV Grands to a mechanical. It will take a 18650 battery, or a kick with a 18490.

    I sent one to him and had it done.

    Here is a thread from another Reonaut:

    Did a search to no avail and knowing how busy the folks at Reo are, will someone be able to provide me with the info/cost to mod a Grand to a LP Grand. I am tool and space limited to do the chop myself. I am not liking the vape or building of the RM2 but love the RM6.

    I had Rob do mine. Cost was $20 +shipping both ways. Total was in the $32 range and took about 5-6 business days... Just pm Rob and he will get you taken care of.

    I know some REOnauts have modded their own Woodvils to LP but Im not sure anyone has had Rob do for them. It could be they are waiting for the new ones to come out.
