    I have 2 RSQ and I will be buying at least 2 Pulse 80w if it gets good reviews.

    That's true I will too as long as it gets good reviews but if using the RSQ all this time before the Pulse 80 is released,I might not want it?

    yeah, some may opt to pass. I will be getting it if it gets good reviews since the Voopoo Drag is easily one of my favorite TC chips.

    In some ways, perhaps they are. But that is Nothing new to the e-Cigarette game.

    The Vandy Vape Pulse 80w is a Slightly Bigger mod than the RSQ. But it can also run a 20700 Battery. Which might appeal to those who have 20700's already (like existing Mechanical Pulse Mod users).

    A 20700 can also have a Higher CDR than an 18650. So a person can use Higher Watts over the entire working Battery Voltage.

    Vandy Vape will also do something that some OEM's fall down on IMO. And that is offer Multiple Door and Bottle Colours. So users can Mix and Match how they want their Mod to look. Vandy Vape also does a Better Job than many of promoting their products via YouTube reviewers.

    If the Board Vandy Vape is going with is a Good Performer, I predict that the Pulse 80w will be well received. And the old business saying will probably be true...

    Yes true I would prefer a 20XXX battery but the problem with them and the few mods that support them,these cells are not massively available yet(and I fear they might not be).
    The replaceable doors yes I do like that too especially with the inbox line of 75's.
    If they are hoping that larger capacity single battery and swappable doors will make the device coveted,that is a large risk knowing you are late to the game? I do enjoy the new batt size devices though the few you can find I think is why a lot more are not switching over to them now.

    It's just Hard to say how something like the Vandy Vape 80w will do?

    I think Vandy Vape has got it's head screwed on right when it comes to People in their Design/R&D departments. They seem to keep their Finger on the Pulse (I know... But I Couldn't Resist. LOL) of what Vapers want. And Low End quality isn't what comes to my mind when I think of Vandy Vape.

    Like I said, if the Board is Good, I think the Vady Vape 80w will be a good seller. But who knows?

    BTW - Maybe when this Hits it will Blow Away all the other Regulated Mods out there?

    Or maybe it will be a Day Late and a Dollar Short?

    I've got two RSQ's, but I will still be buying two of the Pulse 80w as soon as I find it at a reliable US vendor. I'm guessing by the time it's in stock in the US, there will be enough reviews out there to give a good initial impression.

    I'm confident the board in the Pulse is not going to be a slouch, I've got the Alpha, Drag and TOO, and none of them disappoint.

    My only concern would be a possible design flaw where it may leak, etc. I'm guessing chances of this are pretty slim too though. Time will tell. The regular Pulse seems very well received, I think this is going to be a great upgrade to those of us that prefer a regulated device.

    There are folks that won't look at it since it's not a DNA, not this, not that. But the Gene chip is extremely solid and it sounds like this is going to be offered at a very competitive price. I'm interested in what they did with the new bottle system, but it's nice to know that 'standard' bottles will also fit/work.

    I haven't been this excited about something in a long time, lol. I'm not really on a tight vape budget right now, but there's honestly nothing else I want right now. I've got an FDA stockpile of equipment and nic concentrate. The first/last thing I do every day is check for info on the new Pulse. :D

    And I WILL buy a Luxotic if they ever release the updated version that uses a standard bottle. I like the looks of the mod but am more than willing to pass on a propriety bottle at this point. It looks like a great mod to me other than that.

    there are pics on VU, not sure if they were posted in this thread, but it basically looks a new cap style that should hopefully be easier to twist on and off when refilling and maybe it has some sort of vent so I don't have to always plug the tube with a blue screw drive when I refill and cap the bottle.

    It's not that we would not consider them because it is not a DNA device. It's,back when we started vaping 8-9 years ago the DNA chip was the only go to,so,we stayed with them and they do work extremely well.
    I know the other chips work well to it's just what we had then is what we stayed with.

    I understand completely. Not every device, chip, etc is for everybody.

    I like my two DNA devices, but in all honesty, they are a DNA 40, and a DNA 75 (Inbox VT). I haven't kept up with the times there. :)

    I'm just glad we're starting to see a good many more options coming available and I do like my Gene chips.

    There's something out there for all of us, good to see that more choices are coming available more quickly.

    Yes you are so right. I have a few devices too that others hate (Smok Alien 3 f them) that work very well in TC mode,others have bashed it for a while and mine are still kicking well over a year on them. Then I do have quite a few $3-$5 hundred dollar(let's not start the talk about price) DNA devices that I love. Your right about other chip devices being offered. I wonder what it would be like back then if we had all these options we do today. As long as we stay off analogs that is what counts though.

    My Luxotic is on preorder, so, hopefully, it'll come with the updated softer bottle. Really liked the Kanger Dripbox.... but that bottle was a PITA.

    Spring loaded battery connector, short circuit, low voltage and reverse battery protection and! The button lights up! Interchangeable doors!!

    Yip!

    What few electronics are in the Luxotic are encased in steel and I'm liking the leak protection at the top of the bottle
    We shall see. Est ship date is 3.13

    Blue resin door.. that's the one I ordered. Lucky guy! Did you get the mod with the Tobhino? (JayBo created the Tobh RDA) If you did, I'd be curious as to how hard/easy it is to build on it!

    I got the kit with the atty. Will build it later but it doesn't look too difficult from the reviews I've seen. It comes with two coils that are already pre bent and cut to drop in,so using one of them as a guide it should be fairly straightforward. I'll post my thoughts on both after I use them for a bit.

    This is an unregulated device. It has a board that provides some user protections, but fires at battery voltage like a mech mod.

    If your build isn't giving you a satisfactory vape on a mech, then it won't on this device either.

    You need to either find a build that gives you a satisfactory vape on a mech. Likely your build has too much coil mass, takes too long to heat up. I'm primarily a regulated mod user, others may be able to help you there. Maybe look in the forums for builds folks are running on single battery mech devices. I've got a few unregulated squonks I haven't used myself. I'm planning on starting with twisted wire or parrell wire builds myself to keep coil mass lower. Also, using a single coil should help if you are using a higher mass coil.

    I prefer a cooler vape though than most. I'll be looking to build for reasonable ramp up time, but not a hot build. I need to do a lot of reading here myself on this. Builing is very different than for regulated devices. From the little research I've done so far, I'll be starting with twisted wire and and parallel wire builds. Your clapton wire and build are probably the problem here.

    The blue resin door mod is on pre-order on every online site I found?
