    Hey guys, so I'm relatively new to vaping. A regular customer at my job is a distributor for bloog, so he sold me a bloog 650 at cost, and as of right now I'm a month and 3 days without a cigarette, my longest I've gone in 12 years, so that's basically cemented my existence in the vaping world since it went from a way to quit smoking to a hobby literally in about 6 hours since I got handed the thing and didn't even know that a world like this existed. Anyway, I also picked up an ego twist and a few different tanks and whatever, not important I guess.

    So I love my bloog and my ego twist, but as a tech junkie, smoking, something I love, going digital, is the best thing ever, and I always want to get new things and try things out, and whatever, and I'm considering several different batteries, I was gonna dive in head first, and go for a more advanced mod, but it's shocking how many things there are to know about pvs. Its like teaching a kid to read the sheet music for chopsticks and then putting Beethoven in front of them and saying "okay, this now"

    TL;DR: I have a bloog 650 and an ego twist, and want a new thing

    So I've been looking at several different options, Now just so it doesn't come into consideration when suggesting, money isn't an issue, which I guess it should be because I'm a broke college kid, but none of these pvs are really expensive anyway, and it's come down basically to two options.

    The itaste vv and the vamo. They both look awesome, they're both highly rated and well reviewed, and as far as all my research goes, trying to compare the two is not that easy. I know the vamo has a higher max wattage and voltage, but that's not a huge deal to me. The vv looks awesome, but it seems like owning a vamo is almost a right of passage for new vapers.

    So what /I/ look for in a pv isn't anything in particular. Just one that's gonna be my friend, and I want it to be at least mildly durable in that I always have it with me, so it's usually in a pocket or my messenger bag, and so its just gonna get travel wear and tear and I don't want something that's gonna give up on me.As for my vaping habit, I usually vape pretty solidly throughout the day, save for if I'm in class or at work, ya know, working, so it's also gonna have to like being used all the time.

    Which do you guys think I should get? Or should I get something entirely different?

    Sorry for the rambling guys, thanks!

    Google Innokin MVP 2...... very durable and may be digital enough for you.

    Using the word "durable" wakes up all the Provarians. Just an FYI. :p
    If you like the looks and reviews of a Vamo check out the SVD. Relatively the same in price, size, features and durability, but I find its a big advantage on the SVD to not have to carry the 18650 extension as the SVD is telescopic . JMO

    The Vamo won't be particularly pocket-friendly.

    I agree with Mark Anthony, strongly consider the Innokin iTaste MVP. This is an extremely popular mod for both beginners and advanced users alike.

    I has a powerful built-in rechargeable battery that can last 2 - 3 days between charges. It can be used while it is being charged (pass through ability). No need to buy multiple batteries and a separate charger like you will with other mods. Uses an USB charging cord which comes in the starter kit along with Innokin iClear clearomizers. Only $50 for the VV version one, and $70 for the version two which adds variable wattage and a built-in ohm meter. Innokin MVP 2 iTaste Kit - AltSmoke

    This is durably built to last and is pocket-friendly. It accepts both ego and 510 juice attachments.

    The itaste vv v3 would be my choice of the two.

    Check this one out.
    I have been using it for about a month and a half. It is very durable with nice features.

    Good Luck

    +1 on MVP....... I like the SVD over the Vamo.....ITaste vv stick mod is a great stick mod. All three are good mods.

    SVD is heavy but well made. MVP is lighter tan the SVD but square ( some like that ) The Itaste is more stealthy and light.

    Before I leave you.. I must speak the name Provari for durability, american made and can be serviced if needed.

    Here's a bonus for the mvp 2 : you can charge a cell phone, tablet, or laptop off of it if necessary.

    Looks like a retubed Zmax. They should have gone with the V3? chipset with the oled screen but the tube looks good, I like the grips.

    I have an MVP 2 and an SVD - Highly recommend both. Great devices for the price range and sturdy :)

    Innokin brand is a first good step into vv/vw, helps that they have good clearomizers too.
    Do you want a tube type mod (like the SVD), do you like or not like a rectangular box type device like the itaste MVP is?

    If you get a tube type VW mod like the SVD (edit:eek:r vamo) you will have to pay another $30-40 for the batteries (need a few spare), and a charger.
    While the pros of getting a box mod like the itaste MVP means not having to buy batteries and a charger, so may be worth it for that reason.

    Personally I went with buying some 18650, 18490 and 18350 batteries and a charger because I plan on getting future mods anyway.
    If I was going to settle on one main device and only that (besides spinner type batteries as backups), I would go for the MVP and save the money not having to buy a battery charger.
    The main thing that influenced my decision was I was interested in rebuildable atomizers and drippers, hence wanting to try various mods. If I was only going to use clearomizers I would have been more tempted to just get an itaste MVP box VV/VW only, saving the hassle of buying separate batteries and charger.

    Check out the VV Reo Grand. They are very rugged and durable. Rob backs his products and will take care of any issues in a flash if they arise down the road. Slap a RBA and micro coil on it and you will have found nirvana.

    Nice choice. As others have said the SVD is awesome too.

    I wouldn't spend the money on a provari. I'd just get a reo at that price.

    To each his own, not everyone enjoys using a bottom feeding mod. That restricts you to using just an drip atomizer or a RDA as a juice attachment.

    A Provari can be purchased for the same price as a Reo, and be unlimited in the variety of juice attachments:

    drip atomizers
    cartomizers & cartotanks
    clearomizers & clearotanks
    RBA's & RDA's

    I strongly prefer the Provari. Both are great mods, but I don't wish to be limited in my choice of attachments that I use on my mod.

    I get that, but that's what my SVD is for and it only costs $37. I'm not trying to argue with you and I understand the service/durability pros of the provari but I would spend that $200 of upgrade cash in a different direction.
