So far in my short time vaping is hands down getting a reo mini with a reomizer. Changed everything. I no longer pack around a bunch of stuff. Just my reo, spare battery, and an ego twist with mini protank for emergency backup. I refuse to buy an analog and would rather go through a nic fit than smoke again. However, the ego twist hasn't been needed so it will probably get swapped out for a carto/ego and left in my truck.
Now if I could just find a juice I liked for more than a half a day I'd be set. Boba's bounty is the one I get least sick of, but it wears on me too. I have 25 new juices coming from various vendors (sampler packs) so I'm hopeful to find the one... or two hahaha my own worst enemy.
Like I said in my original post, finding the right juice/s is what I think is the most critical in this moment in time. There are plenty of great mods and batteries and toppers and all that on the market, finding one of those is less taxing IMO. It's the juice that is the most pivotal IMO.
I have yet to find one juice or flavor that I vape all day, but RY4 would be my choice if I could only go with one flavor (just one juice is impossible). Right now I vape coffee flavors in the morning, fruit vapes in the afternoon, and then Boba's, Gorilla Juice or a caramel in the evening. The two flavors I'll mix in at any point in the day are an RY4 or Dragon's Crown or Dragon's Tear from ECBlend. But I need to change it up throughout the day based on mood and to keep it interesting.
I have been able to keep spending at around $230 on mods and batteries, but I don't see me limiting my vaping experience with juices. I will continue to try a new vendor each month, and go back to my three or so anchor vendors for the juices I really like. Probably should go DIY, but that is something in the future. One good thing is I've narrowed the fruit vapes to about 4 flavors and RY4 is all I need for tobacco. That makes the search for a top 15 juice list much more feasible going forward.
