Vape general! Share info on boxes / coils, talk about your juice you got, talk about vaping in news and politics, ask questions.
I currently use a SMOK "G-Priv Baby" box mod with a Geek Vape "Zeus X 25mm RTA" tank. not sure what vape juices are really the right ones for me yet, but it's a nice setup
I just bought a Vaporesso swag px80 today and holy shit this is my new favorite mod.
I was shocked that it runs on 18650 batteries.
it is not 510 threaded it uses a proprietary tank held in the mod with magnets, and the coils pop out super easily thru a little clever mechanism.
it seems relatively rugged I doubt I'll break it with it just being in my pocket.
the screen is fucking cool it disappears behind a fo-carbon fiber glossy finished material, and a fo-leather accent on the back.
the best part: it goes up to 80w! and the little coil i have is 0.20 ohms and goes up to 60w.
the display also reminds you of what watts the coil is best at!
it features a USB type C charger port too.
with their proprietary tank I'd say airflow is comparable to my Zeus tanks with dual mesh coils (as a point of reference).
all in all it was a great purchase and im very happy.
my other mod is a geek vape aiges x and this thing is a fucking unit.
totally massive the two 18650 batteries will last a solid day and a half of heavy vaping at 120w.
the mod goes up to 200w, highest ive been is 160w.
the 2.4" screen is a bit of a gimmick but it is informational, and the nice part is you can have 4 full presets for hot swapping tanks.
it has all the modern mod features like temperature control, preheat, etc.
I currently have a smok tfv18 tank that does the job.
the nice thing about the tfv18 is the coils are cross compatible with the tfv16 coils so almost any vape shop will have something for you.
a buddy has the tfv16 and I must say I wish I had bought it --while the tfv18 is marginally wider I prefer the airflow on the tfv16.
this is definitely my cloud chasing rig I'm currently vaping at 140w (3mg juice usually) and it gets the job done.
I am a little bummed with the build quality on the aiges x, while it feels great in the hand and looks sharp its gotten a few nicks and dings (probably because its so massive and i was taking it everywhere with me (including on a plane which was kind if a pain)).
The screen also got super scratched right away which is a bummer but honestly it's whatever.
I would definitely recommend it to someone especially for the price (msrp with a Zeus tank is around $65 rn).
However if someone is trying to "daily drive" it I'd encourage them to explore other options that are a little more portable.
I've definitely seen some two battery mods that are a lot more portable :/.
pic related is the two mods and a pilate g2 for scale
literally fix the syncing time on your server brah
I smoke cookies noobz
Ugh... I met "happy vape" tonight
At least I was able to find my replacement tank for Happy Vape when he opened his mouth by referencing this thread. I was able to find glass for $5 with a simple google search. Shipping was higher than the glass, but whatever, if ~$10 keeps me away from cigs, it's money well spent. An Uber to the vape store + vape store price of glass would exceed my order+shipping anyway.
Fell asleep on the couch last night with a slide-top vape 90% filled in my pocket. Woke up with a terrible headache; looked in pocket, vape empty. My sweat smells like e-juice. On the bright side, I haven't had any urges to consume nicotine today!
Never used temp control mode before, but God what a difference!
Expanding on >>5
Been using these PnP-VM1 (0.3ohm) coils, they get 700-900 puffs @ 35 watts on TC 200F / 94C. According to the thermometer in my mod though, temps rarely exceed 100F/38C.
I use "temp control stainless steel" mode (TCR 0.00105) which seems to play nice. Up until this point, I'd just been using watt mode, which would make the coil get too hot and burn out fast at reasonable temps, so I'd just been vaping at really low watts (9-15) which produced suboptimal flavor, nicotine, and cloud output.
A battery a day seems to work fine. I generally have the airflow all the way open because I don't want a cigarette-esque hit, I always lung hit.
Got a new mod ( >>6 san here):
> lost vape quest centaurus
Seems to perform better. I was forced to upgrade because the screen stopped working on my old mod. Two batteries is definitely an upgrade.
