    I still love my Evod. The original, single coil Evod. I've tried pods, mods, etc, and I keep coming back to this, which was actually my 3rd device ever.

    I went from a 901 in 2009 or so, to an EGO (I think?) and then the Evod. Have tried other things since, but the Evod does what I want.

    Anyone else have any old school favorites?

    Just a slightly bigger all steel Evod. Usually parked on a VV3 or 4.

    I recently bought four new Kanger Evod kits from a member here to use with 50mg salts.

    They are the original "pod mods".

    Yep, still use evods and egos, mainly for testing flavors.

    I still have some CE4/eGo batteries and clearomisers. They work quite well with higher nic.

    As expected, though I don't use them as my primary device. They work pretty well as a high-nic, MTL device, but sometimes the hit feels a tad bit weak compared to the newer pod mods. I'm thinking the old Twist batteries with adjustable voltage would probably suit me better. I do like that the coils are replaceable and relatively cheap.

    My oldest functional gear that I still use is my k1 tanks, although it’s really hard to find decent coils for them these days, and my istick 20s. Those things just will not die. I also have my first external battery device, a cuboid, but I don’t use it anymore - I used to test flavors or build with it, but now I’m using the Ipower 80 for building because it reads my coils more accurately.

    Wow! That's ashame. The BVCs are fairly easy to get hold of in the UK. There's a new K1 tank, so hopefully the coils aren't disappearing just yet.

    The most 'belle epoque' stuff that still is on the list is the kanger subtank coils....I've just bought a pack of them for my billet box (its on order) along with some aspire atlantis/triton coils.....some of the oldies were definitely goodies :)

    I think you realise in the end that chasing stuff is ok up to a point but finding what works for you best is infinitely more important :)

    I thought about keeping the old stuff around and using it, but the lack of coils, leaking tanks, and minimal battery capacity made me decide on "better" equipment...

    altho I still use my RSST ( atty) on a SVD mod :)

    The oldest old school devices that I still use is the Provari.. but my toppers for that aren't old school, so I guess not.

    I quit on an ego, but I did leave that behind me..

    I've still got a box full of Spinners and PT 2 minis. Figured they might be useful for travel at some point if there was a chance they could be confiscated. My wife uses a couple of Pro Tanks. I mostly use KFL's and Provaris, plus a couple of Lemos on Picos, with plenty more in the stash.

    After getting stocked up during the original Deeming panic I was reluctant to buy new gear when I had a lifetime supply of stuff that worked fine. I did get a couple of new mods recently.

    The oldest things I have are a few Vivi Nova 3.5 ml tanks plus a supply of spare heads for them.

    Though they were originally laid aside for emergency use only, I do take the notion to use them from time to time and am actually surprised each time to find that I still quite like them.

    Other than that, my mainstays are Nautilus Mini Tanks, which nowadays are considered old hat, but which for me just go on delivering a great satisfying vape.
