    So after being thoroughly disgusted with the SE Gold (3.0) model of e-cigarette, and wanting to get the Old Lady started vaping and away from Analogs, I made a post for your thoughts on which companies to buy from. Ben at VaporNine made a good offer on his site. The Rio starter kit came with 2 batts, 2 atomizers, a charger, and the requisite initial carts. Just got the kit in today. Ordered it on the 4th. Shipping was wow fast. The additional atomizer in the kit is what ultimately sealed my decision. If I may use an Army term, BLUF, I get 2 e-cigs for the price of one. (BLUF = Bottom Line Up Front) I also ordered some Mboro juice in High strength since She doesn't like the fruity juices I like to experiment with. The batts came fully charged. The atomizers put out some fantastic vapor, even if at times it has a tendency to turn on by itself after setting it down. It's not the typical e-cig in design, from what I can tell, but on the same side of that, it's what sets it apart that makes it desirable. Overall, the transaction was a fantastic deal. I sent Ben an e-mail before I placed my order and he responded quickly. Also his post on this very forum and his compensation for an error on his site, I feel, was more than fair and agreeable. To summarize:

    The price: ~$80 plus shipping. And that's with a bottle of Juice as well.
    The service: top notch.
    The product: amazingly good. This thing puts vapor out.

    If you have your heart set on the 901, or SD and want to wait fine. If you want a good e-cig with great customer service, uber fast shipping, and an upstanding product, get in touch with Ben at VaporNine.

    I tried this too....as kind of a "promo" type thing to compare with the other hundred penstyles I have....lol

    It is a great ecig...at least comparable to my other penstyles in vapor, throat hit and battery power.

    However, with that being said, I am going to sell mine. Why? Because I tried it with the hopes of proving it was somehow better than my current pens, but I can't say that. I can only say it is as good as them.

    Since I really don't need another penstyle like my own, I am going to let it go....for pretty cheap too. I only used it this week....everything is still like new and I still have the original packaging.....plus some extra carts.

    Glad you like yours Silver....I like mine to, but just don't need another one. It's a great product for someone who wants to try one though :thumb:

    That's fine Silver. Same kit as yours...I was planning on $50 shipped. If I know for sure, I'll hold it for you. And since I was planning on selling it, I am not using it anymore.

    I've been looking at ben'spenstyle. They look real cool and was interested how good they are. Guess you've answered my question.

    Some day if i have the extra cash i may invest in one.

    I really tried it with the hopes of saying it was somehow "better" than my other pens, but I just can't say that.....and I won't say it if it's not true. If it were, I would have definitely bought a second one.

    It is a good pen though and with a (more?) competitive price, I would highly recommend it. Its parts are also compatible with other pens. That's always a plus too! So take it for what it's worth :p

    And I do like vapornine and plan on doing more business with them.

    I also just purchased the RIO pen.....great service from ben....but anyway, I has the new battery that i think they said it has a microphone type swith to activate the atomizer.....which is very sensitive what ever it is.....It seems to keep on cooking after you stop your draw (well longer than i like)...Get that burn taste and it seems to keep starting up with it just sitting in your mouth and a normal breath seems to fire it up and you here the popping going on..... good vape ,,but starts to get hot to quick for my liking....
    I messed with putting some (very small piece) of sponge foam inbetween the battery and atomizer....and well it has less ignite time and still a good vape....and you can bump it and it doesnt start up as easily..... I like it that way..... not sure how long the foam will last or if it will affect the life of battery or atomizer yet....but i would think as hot as that thing get by being touch or near wind or sound....what do i have to loose....
