    I'm trying to decide which 6V mod to get, I'm looking at either the Alpha UltraMax or a Silver Bullet.

    Thank you!

    The Alpha Ultramax is definitely nice looking, but I'm not familiar with it and it seems a bit expensive for a mod that doesn't have variable voltage and doesn't appear to be large enough for 18650 batteries. The 17670's are almost as large, but not as common and don't have the capacity of the slightly larger 18650's.

    Between the two, I think I'd recommend the Silver Bullet. It's a very well built "classic" tube mod and less than half the price.

    I would get a 5 volt over a 6 volt. Many find that level the "sweet spot". GLV2 would be my suggestion. I have read good reviews on the Silver Bullet.

    Between those two, Silver Bullet without a doubt. I haven't broken mine yet and I break everything....

    Or go with a Maxi Roughstack from madvapes.com and just pick up different batteries for whatever voltage you want. I use mine at 3.7, 5, 6 and 7.4. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

    Thanks for all the replies!

    @RupertFranklyn: I had found that model yesterday, but I'm not sure if I like the button on it. But it definitely has the price advantage

    One of the best features of the RS is the button on the top. You can keep it in your pocket all day and it will never fire. Another great perk, it's all replaceable parts! You can replace the switch with a pair of needle nose pliers.

    The Indulgence is another option quite a bit like the Maxi Roughstack. There's a pic of it in my signature. It's about twice the price of the RS but is much nicer looking and has a fairly recessed button so doesn't go off as easily as some. I'm real happy with mine but use it at 6v mostly. The Omega is much more popular though than the Indulgence but you don't get the various voltages.

    thanks tmcase, I found a 6v kit for the indulgence for $105. I'll probably end up buying the alpha ultramax, but I'll do some more research on the indulgence

    If you found it at Vapor Junction, you might be able to get it for $95 with the discount code if it is still available. I emailed the vendor for it. I forgot to mention that the Indulgence comes with 4 different thread caps but you probably saw that at the site. I'm not trying to change your mind about what PV to get, just letting you know your options. Good luck.

    thanks, I appreciate that! It seems like a great device, but the big non-removable letters on the mod should be optional, not a big fan of that personally.

    There's no writing on the 6v sleeve.

    I love mine..... Mostly go with it at 3.7 because I have yet to get some higher resistance attys... The mini mode is sweet in size.... One of the smallest tube mods when that way... When in mini mode it is roughly a drip tip longer than standard 808 with the carto....

    I wouldn't suggest the silver bullet for 6v vaping. As it is a sealed device and if you have a battery failure it could be ugly. Altsmoke even says the silver bullet is designed to hold ONE protected battery and highly discourages stacking batteries in the device. It's up to you but I'm just saying...

    great point, I was researching the whole safety issue with that. Is that a problem with the Ultramax as well? I would think not, given that innovapor sells them with batteries for 6v mode, but then again I don't know much about batteries.

    Because the Silver Bullet does not have a specific vent hole, it is very important to only used protected batteries but if a battery does ever vent in the silver bullet, I believe it does have enough ventilation that it should not be seriously dangerous.

    I'm not sure on the ultramax and the venting. Maybe someone else is more familiar with that model.
