    Yesterday, I was working outside building a porch and wheelchair ramp. Had my vape with me as usual. Dropped it, driptip down into the dirt and clay that I had dug up. Instantly plugged up the driptip. This has never happened before. Thankfully I have extra coils and got the mud cleaned out. Whew.

    I've bounced a mod or two on hard floors and occasionally a concrete garage floor! So far they all work. Even stainless steel gets a nasty nick from concrete. I'm trying to be more careful but fumble fingers happen! That's one of the reasons I grab an old Pico 75W when I'm cutting grass or working on something outdoors.

    I hate to count the number of mods I have dropped and busted the glass out of my tanks. I had just gotten a Pick X and dropped it broke the glass of my Kayfun V3 and when I got home I discovered that a wire came loose and now it doesn't work now. I have since bought Geek Vape Aegis Solo mods. They are waterproof and solidly built and have survived numerous drops. Of course, I have also acquired a few extra glasses from FastTech. Good luck, stay safe and well.

    I operate a design/install landscape company. All my EDC vape gear wears the character of experience in rugged conditions. We're massaging over 20 tons of stone into a lovely outdoor living area, currently. My vape tastes like aggregate a lot.

    Stone dust in the teeth, that's no fun. That's like drywall dust, but worse. I got that in my RDA a few times doing demo, not a big fan.

    Thankfully all I did was plug the driptip with clay mud. A thorough rinse in hot water and a new coil(it was time for that anyway) and every thing is fine. But there was that "dammit" moment there to be sure

    Thank goodness it was fixable. First thing I did when I switched to tanks was drop it and break the glass. I panicked and bought a couple of dozen more and never broke another. Now when I drop it I don't even bother to check. If you want to keep your vape gear safe just have a few pricey replacements waiting in the wings. The back-up Gods are finicky buggers.

    My biggest fear is dropping mine in the toilet. Well, not fear, but concern.

    There was thread about dropping vapes and someone topped all the other stories (IMO) Dropped it in a "porta potty" and that's where it stayed!

    BTW, I have a cheap little pod I use for "vooping"... don't risk my good devices for that.
