    Renovah Zero. Reason being is that it is the only one I've tried. Works well for me with its auto temp control, 3 power levels and no leakage.
    The one con for it is that it's draw activated, with no inbuilt air flow adjustment. The draw is so open that I nearly trashed the thing until I figgered out a hack to tighten it up to a suitable MTL draw for me.

    Zero - warm vape (3 Heat options), speed loading, ceramic coils (and cheap), draw not to tight and easy to refill.

    Will try the PAL 2 system next.
    Did try lots of them. All had less flavor and did not "qualify" my needs.

    Zero for me. Really smooth. Temp control keeps the vape nice and consistant too. Stealth master too.

    I just won a ROTA and gotta say it aint bad. Not bad at all. Reminds me of the Sourin Air but better. Gets a bit warm if chain vaping and makes a pop sound at times. But it's a spinner so there is that.

    The original EQ is pretty good at producing vaper thanks to a sub ohm coil pack. Good flavor, nice and quiet. Yet if chain vaping the lack of temp control becomes apparent.

    I have yet to find one that doesn’t have some sort of fairly unpleasant long term issue, be it cost or lack of nicotine reduction options or a strangely precipitous drop in the quality of replacement pods.
    So far as I can tell more traditional vaping systems are still beating them stupid. Except in size of course.

    GeekVape Flint. Not really a pod but just as small or smaller. Coils are much cheaper than pods. Any you can us it on any VW mod.

    I've got a couple of old icares and they're awesome for a backup, but just wait until you upgrade, the flavor you can get out of nic salts just doesn't come through on an icare

    Hi guys. This might sound weird, but which pod systems have a easy automatic draw? I mean, that you dont have to push to hard to activate it

    I think the term you are looking for is airy. You want an airy automatic switch. I think, anyway.

    Nope, I prefer a tight airflow for MTL. I just want to not have to suck bananas to get it to work.

    Best I've found is the Hcigar Akso, but now I can't find pods. Although they just released a new version, the Akso OS, so maybe that's why they weren't distributing pods. Odd, though, because it looks like it's the same pod, and I think they're compatible with each other. I hope the new one works well, and that they sell the prefilled pods for it. I still use my rta, but fell in love with their ice mint, and even the nutty tobacco flavors. They're outstanding - the best juices I've ever tasted that aren't my diy.

    I can't tell you a good one, but I can say that I really liked the Vaporesso Renova Zero, and was disappointed only with the issue you're concerned with. You have to draw too hard to activate it. All the others I'm using now have a fire button, but I would prefer automatic.

    While I attempt valiantly to scrub that mental image from my mind (kudos btw) what it sounds like you want is both low air flow AND low vacuum pressure for activation on an automatic. I’ve vaped cigalikes from long ago that had these dual characteristics. There were big problems.

    Specifically the combination requires a VERY sensitive vacuum switch. So sensitive that things like light breezes and low pressure weather systems set it off spontaneously.

    Trust me you do not want this. PITA doesn’t even cover it.

    You might be able to make it go with a combination system where you have an on/off button with an automatic cutoff timer to arm the vacuum switch.

    :) . Makes sense. Guess I will forget the auto switch. I also used cigalikes (9 years ago?) and if the auto switches continues the "same", I will pass :)

    I'm not forgetting the auto draw, as these small ones really should be automatic. Akso's is fine. Juul is sensitive enough. It can be done, and is being done. Uwell's new one has the option of auto or button firing. I'm just waiting a little to get the right device with auto.

    Vaporesso Nexus has a pretty easy draw-activated switch, uses replaceable coils (regular or CCell, both 1-ohm), and has airflow control from tight to loose MTL.
