    Lately, it's been a 67 neo that was gifted to me by some little, no name reviewer who works out of a humble shed in Scotland. A fine bloke, he is. On top is a NarCA. Juice is a diy vanilla custard called Nilla Please. :lol:

    I always wince when I hear someone get so frustrated they start tossing gear. For one, there's a solution. Your chimney may have gotten slightly unseated if you dropped it or screwed in a coil too hard/not hard enough. Happened to one of my N2 tanks, I was able to reseat the chimney. There are fixes for these things.

    Also, there may have been someone out there who could have used it/would have enjoyed using it. I kind of think that's what the PIF thread is for. If I had thrown away all the equipment not "right" for me (although I'll often give it away via PM) I would have thrown away a lot of useful things to others.... Really, just because a tank isn't working for you, doesn't mean it might not work for someone else.

    I do understand the frustration, though. Things can get pretty frustrating.

    I hope you find another tank you like much better, as well :)

    Mine too. My only 'favorite' reviewer, actually. He's a nice guy and does a great job. The charity raffles he does say alot about him.

    agreed. If it works, PIF it. Even if something is dead it shouldn't get trashed. regulated mods (electronics, metal (even zinc alloy can/should be I think), plastic) and rda/rta (stainless steel, aluminum, etc) can all be recycled.

    We've been saving dead electronic parts since I can remember. One day, we are going to sell them all off as scrap and move to Mexico! Or something.... :) I still get sad when I see my MacBook pro, purchased in the "good" days, that thing lasted me an eternity for a computer!

    Yep. I like sending stuff to random members who seem sincere about wanting to try something new or found themselves in a pinch and can't spend any money at the moment. I don't know what happens to that stuff, but it makes me feel better about all the banks I've robbed over the years. :lol:

    09D20BBB-9CCF-4AE2-AE5F-A07DCDB0EE2A.jpeg I’ve been really satisfied with my Cylon and Zesthia RTA. I only use one mod all day everyday. I recently switched from the uwell crown to the RTA just because my new all day everyday juice is a coil gunker. My crown coils went from lasting a month or two, and now they were only lasting 3 weeks to a month. Simply unacceptable, so now I build my own coils. I’m enjoying having complete control over my vape now. I mix my own juice, build my own coils, wick them, and enjoy my vape. So now I’ll post a picture of my setup. Enjoy

    For mods, I've been using a couple of iStick Picos for well over a year. For toppers, I've been using a bunch of Subtank Minis for several years. I run Rayon wicked, twisted, 26g Kanthal coils at around .5 ohm. My AD/ED juice is 36mg, 50/50, Holy Grail from E-cig Outlet.

    I. Must.Get. My hands on a "watch" mod, that would be so handy! Lovely setup, BTW.

    Congrats, @Maxie81 , off to a great start! :thumbs:

    As mentioned, YESSSS to backups. Never know when something is going to go south, but it's usually at the worst possible time. Like midnight at the start of a long holiday weekend, when nothing is open to get replacments! :w00t:

    One of the issues with the smaller AIO types is battery life, as in vape time. Another reason for a backup, so you have one to vape while the other is charging. Some of the single 18650 boxes aren't tremendously larger than AIOs, and depending on vape style may be ok. I can understand not liking the huge ones, i.e. the 2 and 3 battery ones. Yep, they can get pretty hefty!

    In any case, charge early and often. Lithiums may actually have a longer service life if you DON'T run them down to low voltage shut down. So having another mod (or another 18650 if/when you go there ;) ) is more than just a backup.

    I have a modest set up, though it's growing.

    Smok Alien 220W with VandyVape Kensei RTA for vaping out at home - it's a lovely vape but a complete juice guzzler - normally reserved for the evenings when I want a proper vape out.

    eVic Primo Mini with Procore Aires tank for travelling and when Im out and about - I find this a really nice every day vape, it's not too cloudy for when I want to vape in bars (though it can produce an impressive weather system!) and I find a single battery mod much easier when on the road (I do a lot of international travel) - keeping a 2 x single battery rotation charged on a dual charger is easier to juggle when bouncing between hotels then always having to charge/use two in parallel. I use it intermittently at home too. I also carry an old empty Nautilus Triton 2 tank as an emergency incase I break my tank when I'm away from home.

    Its a great mod....I have a couple 67's, they're great but the NEO is the most comfortable. Light, simple to service and silver contacts.

    The one above kind of looks like a mini Big Ben. Very cool.
