    I gotta agree with you on flavor in the past but the devices they've been coming out with lately are much better. Honestly that Fuji Apple with the Yearn is terrific flavor. Also there are more and more coming out now with rebuildables available the Boost and the Vinci X are two of the latest (Boost RBA not available yet) so means I gotta buy more.................don't tell anyone :eek:

    I only use one of my DIY flavors 90% of the time. A Strawberry Custard based juice, and I don't use anything anymore that I don't make myself. I also vape mechs at 0.14-0.25 ohms most of the time as of recently, so 70w and up, on mostly single coil flavor bangers. While pods have gotten better with flavor, they still are not in the same league as some RDAs like the GR1, Venna, or KRMA.

    I'm one of those people that vape for flavor and hand to mouth habit, and not for nicotine cravings (I have not really had any cravings for nicotine for probably over a year now) so that plays a major role in my decisions. I also tend to chain vape off and on through the day, and pod batteries can't hold up with that. On a normal day, I just toss a small mech squonker with a fresh battery and full bottle on my belt, and I'm good. Long trips, I just take a couple extra charged batteries in a case and a bottle of juice. I also have a small bag with an extra coil, some rayon, an Allen key and small eyeglasses repair screwdriver in my wallet at all times (coil fits around the screwdriver to keep it from being crushed).

    For some a pod is perfect, but for people like me pods are not ideal. They just don't give me the quality of vape I can be satisfied with. If they ever make one with rebuildable coils, offers 70w or more, have battery life that rivals an 18650, and doesn't require disposable proprietary parts I would gladly try them again. But until then, mech squonks fill all of my needs fully.

    (I just wanted to post this to offer another point of view since most who posted here are pod users)

    Honestly I am a construction worker. Elevator mechanic so needed something small and easy. I tried to quit smoking years ago but broke a couple pen devices in pocket so gave it up. Plus I didnt know about coils ect. So when I tried to quit this time I got a juul and it was so easy, plus salt nice gave me what freebase was missing years ago. It was so easy to keep in my pocket. It was safe and could sneak it here and there. Then moved to caliburn till I got to the vinci. Now I know a little more. I make my juice and cant wait for the rba. The device is still tiny so i can keep in my pocket, no glass' less smoke, i love it. When i get home i can enjoy and if I want to chain vape and blow clouds I can also. To me it is the best of both worlds. Analog free from 3 to 3.5 packs a day. Hell i got up 4 times a night for smokes. Everyone said i would never quit. I tried twice with pen devices and couldn't get high enough mg and couldn't keep devices safe at work. But now I am more than satisfied. I want the boost now, also the vinci x with 510 adapter to put on a mtl tank when I get home from work

    I like all the vapes, so the main reason for including a pod in my rotation was variety. The stealthy and pocket friendly aspects are good too, it's not always practical to carry a house brick in your pocket.

    @suprtrkr this is what I have and I find it to be quite excellent with a 60/40 24mg DIY strawberry

    The Find S Trio is decent. Great battery but filling can be messy at times. Very fast and responsive fire button. The draw is fairly airy, though. It's more of a DTL type device, IMO.

    Fo sho, it's a very airy MTL. But as I like DTL it works very well for me.

    Pods work for me because when I started vaping and quit smoking, there WAS no VV yet.........the joyetech twist was JUSt coming out. :)

    So I never really got into the high voltage vape stuff, I mean, I had a provari and a reo but I used "little stuff" on them. And I *hated* anything with readouts. Just never liked it.

    I still cannot "take" a lot of flavor or vapor going down my windpipe w/out coughing. Even the Nord 1.0 coil is a bit "hot" for me.

    Also, many people work more than 1 job or are very involved with extra curricular activiies or volunteerism after work....owning sometning like a juul which is expensive way to vape.....is sort of like people who go to Starbucks for coffee because they are rarely HOME.........it's all about convenience for many people........so as long as they are off the cigs,why not.

    Most people who quit smoking are not "hobbyists" like what you find on vape forums.

    Haven't been following this thread (not really into pods) but to my surprise I made an order with a new website and there was a pod included (free) so I tried it. Not bad actually (it's a copy of Suorin Drop) I even ordered another one and some extra pods (dirt cheap) I use it when shopping and working on cars and stuff (when I don't want to risk my good mods/tanks) So... if anyone wants to try this "dirt cheap" and extra pods "insanely cheap"... here's the website (they also have crazy good deals on juice)

    Yeah, a lot of bigger rig users seem to get a pod for stealth, out & about. These days. I've just always hated carrying a big setup. And I consider any single 18650 as big. I've tried probably 15 or so different pods, but the best I've found is the Vladdin RE.

    Never had a dud pod, draw activation works perfectly, no leaks, minimal condensation buildup under the pod,and delivers a serious hit. Not quite like my True or Precisio, but exponentially better than say, a Juul. But the thing that makes me keep using it (being a tightwad) is that even using NET, I can refill these 4-5 times, so it's really economical too, for a pod. I've been using the same battery since April, and it's holding up great - no noticeable dropoff in performance.

    20200118_115236.jpg I need to get another pod setup. I am using this for now. Idon't mind flavor for salts. I use menthol so I don't need it to be too intense. I like the satisfaction I get from pods and salts also the convenience. I like this setup but I would like more convenience and also don't want my nice mods to get too beat up.

    Pods are great. I learned to recoil and fill the Vype epods. Keep them in my belt case with my cell phone. On service calls my mod stays in the truck. I used to always take 2 mods with me but because of the pods I only take one mod and tank with me. Pods certainly have their place and time. They are my stealth vapes also. CHEERS!

    Nothing new under the sun. Pod systems are basically egos and cigalikes with better batteries, proprietary connections and the ability to more safely vape at lower ohms than a ciglike/ego.

    They're also made to look stylish and flashy and not so much like a cigarette or cigar (although some kinda do). In fact, most look like Happy Meal toys. I'm not saying this is not a coincidence, but...
