    I work a 12 hour shift in a machine shop. It's a physical and dirty job, but at least we can smoke or vape inside.

    The screen on my alien broke at work a few months ago. I just got another one and I'm only using it at the house. Currently I'm smoking at work and vaping at home

    So I'm basically looking for a regulated mod that's pretty rugged and most of all reliable. I'm still trying to quit smoking so im Open to any suggestions.

    Heya mate,
    Welcome to VU.
    My go to beater mod (and a lot of the guys here too) is the Smoant Battlestar. Really well made, on the smaller side for a dual battery rig and inexpensive (about $35), I've put mine through its paces and besides the clear coat scratching off in places (I have the stainless one), it's still rocking like it was out of the box.

    Thanks I thought about getting several cheap cheap mods so if they break it's no big deal.

    I got this as a birthday gift from a friend, and love it. I don't have to worry about buttons that inadvertently get pushed in my pocket (after nearly burning my leg with a Limitless mod that was "locked"). Very affordable, practical, and quite powerful too.

    +1 for the Battlestar the Eleaf Pico has been a very dependable mod for me. It's been my out and about mod for a year now.

    My pico 75 is pretty rugged. Been dropped several times.... couple scratches and gouges is result. Not bad for $25.....add Arctic Fox firmware. You have a near bullet proof DNA level mod....
    But you really should consider a mech for work. Can't get much more durable than a Stainless steel Block or piece of pipe.

    My pocket MOD for working is an iStick TC40W which was my first MOD but has stood up well to all the bouncing off the pavement with forgetting I put it in my lap when getting out of the vehicle.

    For pure durability I'd go with a Reo.
    A Reo is basically indestructible :)

    All great suggestions above.
    I'll throw in the Hohmwrecker G2; CNC machined from an aluminum block, anodized finish(get the silver so scratches don't show), superb warranty and service.

    Mechanical squonker solves the broken tank and having to carry juice issues also.

    Maybe a coppervape squonker... You could park a tank on one of them and still vape it.

    I've been thinking this might be a good beater. Haven't shopped around on it yet. Shockproof and waterproof though. Get it dirty can just wash it off.

    Daniel(Djlsb) dropped his from a third story window, then ran over it with his car, then washed it in a bowl of water. Looked like shit after being run over, but took the lickin' and kept on tickin'.
    I'm seriously considering turning my Slice into a dual battery squonker, and getting the Aegis to fill its spot.

    Ipv5

    Those are my suggestions. The new Aegis looks tough but I don't have it yet. It's on the way though.
