    Hi, I'm notelvis, that much I know is true.

    A few years ago I got a 510 with pass-through, it worked great for me for about 2 months, then it just wasn't enough, unfortunately, it also coincided with me being flat broke.

    I'm looking to get off the analogs again and don't want to make the same mistake. I'm looking at the Reos as I am quite drawn to the bottom feeders and prefer discretion over having a huge tank of suspicious liquid in a massive tube of largeness.

    I've learned my lesson, I need more than a 510. I did however, very much like the pass-through feature as I spend a lot of time on the computer and it saved me switching out batteries all the time.

    I wish I could find something like the Revolution, which is a bottom feed, with a hidey hole and a pass-through, but made much better as it is known for being rather cheaply made.

    All signs point to the Reo as the best bottom feed, but I'm so far behind on the knowledge these days and don't really know what kind of performance I would get from the different models, I'm leaning towards the grand, because my theory is that it is much more powerful and I'd be better off getting more power than I'm accustomed to and acclimate myself to that, rather than getting something that suffices, but I'll quickly vape out of.

    Also, it is only the mod, so I'd guess I need batteries and a charger, but I'm not sure what else. Turns out folks like the drip tips on them for comfort, not function, so maybe a couple of those....

    So Reosmod folks, now is your chance, tell me what I need to know (besides be patient for them to be in stock) and give me a nice round number for what my total cost would be for a Reo Grand with required accessories. I do have liquid already.

    And do you think the Reo Grand is a good choice? Or would you suggest another model? Or do you know of another quality made mod, bottom feeding mod with pass-thru I should consider?

    You probably ought to run up your post count to 5 and/or check out the Reo forum. Those Reo folks don't believe in any other PV. They're a fanatical lot and they'll be all over your questions. :)

    Your last question will be easy for them, but I'll save you some time. Yes, get a Reo and No, there is no option!!

    First, you need to know that there is a whole sub-forum dedicated to Reos... in fact two:

    REO (All Models)
    Reos Mods


    Second, to make a Reo work you need an atomizer or a cartomizer and an appropriate battery and charger. They come with bottles and everything. It's best to use an atomizer, like a 510 or a 306 - you'll get flavor on par with dripping but without the hassle.

    I'm not sure about the cost... You can get batteries and a charger at Super T and atomizers at Avid Vaper, or IKenVape or you can try with some generic atomizers from anywhere.. I got the best results with a Cisco spec 1.5 Ohm 306. It's really amazing.

    If they are not in stock, you can also get Verified and then check the classifieds - that's how I got mine (on a whim, I wasn't planning to, but I don't regret it).

    I don't know what else to say other than it's a superb PV... I'm new to it myself.

    ETA: Welcome to ECF!

    Haha! I've been perusing that section, but wasn't finding the specific answers I was looking for, they are so rabid, I felt just by mentioning the name, they would come running. :)

    And hey, I can't be the only one...

    Being a Reo Grand user I suggest you do get one. I did much research and got my Grand after going through a cheapo first e-cig model like most of us do. The battery lasts all day - 2 days if you are not a heavy vaper and the bottle holds more than I vape in 2 days. The batteries are about 10 bucks each and the charger is about 20 bucks. There are links for both on the Reo site. You will need some 501 cartomizers and juice and you are ready to vape! I say go for it. You will not be sorry, just tobacco free. I got my Grand on a Saturday and had my last smoke on Sunday...

    Perhaps I am not a total fanatic... But then again...

    I'll let Grand owners better fill you in on that model..I prefer the wood REOs inparticular the Woodvil. I like the 6ml juice bottle and the big 18650 batt. Both for less hassle and pretty much all day vaping. I should add the Grand has the same but like I said Im partial to the beauty of the wood. Any REO model will perform great and you'd be wise to choose the one which is best fitted to you. :)

    ok i guess i classify as a fanatic as the reos are the only mod i have ever owned the grand is a good choice if you want it to last all day on a juice bottle and a battery you can get chargers that will connect to your USB port Xtar is a good choice for that. It will connect to your usb a wall socket and a car adapter for that

    i guess i am a reo fanatic also. in the last year i have used and owned a lot of mods including the sabre touch, provari, darwin,phidias, and many more. for simple effective and the most trouble free vaping experiance nothing tops a reo. with the bottom feeding function you have it all in one compact almost indestructble unit. no more need to carry a kit of things with you like bottle of juice napkins etc its all self contained and ready to go. come join us in reoville you wont want to leave

    You won't be disappointed with any of the REOs.
    I had my eye on them for quite a while before finally getting a Grand.
    An 18650 battery and on-board 6 ml bottle of juice lasts me well over a day.
    Its good low maintenance carefree vaping.
    I'm Sure Its Very Nice.

    P.S. - BTW, get the Black/Gold one, thats the best color.
    And don't let anyone tell you otherwise DamIt.

    You don't have to own a REO to post in the sub forum and ask questions.

    I own a Provari V2. It's about 2 months old. I have run about 10mls of juice through it. I really need to sell it or something. It has no chance in my vaping world against the REO Grand or the VV Woodvil'.

    There are Grands currently for sale on the REO website, and were a couple in the classifieds today. They don't last long in either place.

    I doubt you will get many answers here, it's been said many times before. Do it, you won't be disappointed!

    Hi My name is Ed and I'm a Reonut! If you're looking for a nearly indestructible mod in a compact package with enough juice and amps to get you through the whole day then a REO is right for you. I have a Grand and also the first stabilized woodvil, named Nebula by the original owner. Mine use 18650 batt and a 6 ml bottle. If you like, you can pm me with any questions since I see you can't post yet. Good luck!

    If you take a look at my signature you will see that I have 3 Reos and a lot more other mods so I'd be careful about shootin off your mouth about not believing in other mods or being fanatical.

    Notelvis...like sailorman said, get 2 more posts and then post in the Reomods forum any questions you might have. We are more than happy to answer any questions you might have about Reos and you will get more exposure and better information there.

    I did forget to mention one very important thing....Rob's customer service is the best bar none. He insist your happy with what he makes and is ALWAYS available to contact. I bought one of his first ones made and knew then REOs were the best and to this day that hasn't changed. Think about it...there has to be a darn good reason why they sell as fast as they are made and no one sells more. :)
