    I've been using my new Riva for a week with the original Joye 510 atty that I got with my Joye 510 kit and it's amazing. In 5 days I've only had to recharge/switch out batteries 3 times... that's NOT bad at all. I was having to recharge my Joye 510 batts at least 3 or 4 times... a day. XP

    Thanks everyone for being so helpful on this board. I'm more than happy with my new upgrade. :D

    From one noobie to another (should any be reading this), get a Riva or eGo to save yourself the worry of having to buy a PCC and constantly change out batts. It's alot more convenient. :p

    Yes it is, being a slave to the charger gets old fast. There are some (light users) who are happy with the smaller batteries but for me a regular battery did not seem to last for more than 1 hr. Got on ego and its much better.

    Yup, love my Riva.
    Got mine at about 7 weeks in, what a difference.


    Here's another must have...

    If you spend alot of time (work) in front of a computer, get a USB passthrough...

    I just got the Hello Sit Or Go, that thing is cool.
    It works plugged in, or as a battery itself.

    So while sitting at my desk, it's plugged in.
    Gotta go somwhere, just unplug it and go.

    It does get old fast. I can imagine that a regular joye 510 wouldn't be bothersome for a light user, but I guess I'm not such a "light" user. LOL. It's also nice having to carry few things around. =] no more bulky pcc for me. =P

    Funny that you mention that because I was thinking of getting a USB passthru as well as a usb to car lighter converter for when i'm in the car. :p maybe when i get some extra cash i'll get one. =] what website did you buy your passthru from? =]

    I had to switch to a mod within a month of starting. I could not handle charging batts constantly. I had two chargers plugged in and four 901 batteries rotating through them all the time. Hated it. By the time I even heard of a Riva or eGo I was already making mods. I bought a Riva a month or so ago just to see what all the hype was about. I'm actually hitting on my Riva right now. Rockin' an 808 carto (with adapter) and some home brewed licorice. Very nice.
    I find I prefer to use this little thing unless I'm wanting a high voltage vape. My 18650 batteries are feeling left out.

    I found 510 pcc's to be temperamental. The best move I made was upgrading to an ego (knockoff). Now I added 2 more small mods a hello 016 and a Nomad (DSE 905V3). I love big batts and not having to worry about charging. The battery life on the hello 016 is awesome. Not my regularly used PV, but gets use everyday. I've only charged it twice since i received it 2 weeks ago. My 905 is a different story. I'm rotating 3 batts and have charged them many times each.

    I am glad you stuck with it and got a mod, that's what we're going with as a first device and I can't wait to see how my man likes it. :D

    lol...i did the same thing...got the basic 510 kit and upgraded to the ego in 2 weeks....batterys on the basic kit suck and i didnt realize how important they are....the voltage drops off i guess as they start to die out

    The moral of this story is: you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it buy an eGo! :D

    (my basic 510 kit w/PT did me fine for 4 months though before I branched out into eGos and Im NOT a light user lol)

    I will second the yay ego comments as well as a passthrough recommendation. Gives you a chance to get that 5v hit on the pt and a reliable back up/battery saver if you're on the pc a fair amount.

    5V passthroughs are a gateway device to harder mods y'know.

    I believe it! I've had my ego a week(and tobacco free for 1 week today as well!) and I've been listening and learning about what I can.....a wetbox mod looks awful spiffy in my book. Oh and a little chuck with some custom graphics*fans herself*lawd-a-mercy chile :p I've also been considering doing polymer clay covered altoids tins mods....or at least decorating the box and having someone help me with the inner mod workings.
    You're right! It DOES lead to modding!lol
