    I'm rocking a Hugo Vapor BF. This thing is only $25, has a 10ml bottle, can use a 20700 or 18650 battery (with the included adapter) and is fully mechanical. I'm loving this thing.

    Hits hard for a single battery mech even with an 18650. I'm just using my Nixon v1 on it for an amazing mtl vape and the battery lasts me a couple of days. I really love this thing

    I want to get some 20 & 21700 batteries, but have to buy another charger before I can do that. I know that the Hugo and the Luxotic NC both use 20700's and I'd love to get some. Don't think that my Luc 6 bay can support those batteries though.

    The larger batteries are money well spent, in my opinion. They make a world of difference in single-battery mechs.

    The Lux NC works well with either size, because it has two batteries, so the biggest difference is in recharge time. With the single-battery mechs, though, the bigger battery actually affects the way they hit.

    I'll definitely try it then. I'm really curious how it will do in my Hugo. Maybe I'll even see if I can find a 20700 Tube Mech.
    Thanks allot. Think I'll invest in some them. Maybe get three to start with, 1 for the Hugo and 2 for the NC. I'm curious how it will do in series with my Bonza

    If Liionwholesale has the Sanyo 2070c those are the ones to get. Better than ijoy and molicel's for sure. They're red

    I have the older LUC V6, not the new version, so that's good for me. Thanks allot for the heads up, much appreciated :)
    I'll check out the Sanyos on my next payday for sure. Sadly there will be no vape stuff on this payday, but next one I should be ok to getsomething and batteries sound like a winner :)

    I can't wait to try them out

    Some RDAs just click for me right off the bat. My two favorite RDAs for flavor pretty much worked right from the start. I tried my Nudge 22 today for the first time. It was like an instant flavor machine. Same with the Elder Dragon. It's like their fool proof and just work.
    0511191702-1.jpg
    These will go boppin' around with me whenever I go out.

    The Reverie is okay. Flavor is good, but it could be better with adjustments I'm sure. The Tauren Solo is hard to set up with those side things and the screw angles. It's really airy. I'll have to keep playing with it. I probably went with the wrong coil but just wanted an idea on how to get it running.
    [edit]- Since this post I watched a video on how to set up the Tauren Solo. I put a N80 tri-core (3x26ga + 36ga) alien in it. It's been working really well. I get pretty damn good flavor. I use it around 55-60W.

    The Pulse V2 is single coil mode is meh. I wasn't sure about coil height. I lowered it and it seems better but nowhere close to the two in the picture above. I've read people claiming great flavor but it has alluded me so far. I know its a bigger chamber so probably wont compete with 22's. People have told me it's great single coil so I'll keep working at it.
    [edit]- my coil was entirely too high still. I checked out what out people were doing and adjusted my coil. It's a pretty good squonk RDA. I can flood it out pretty good (squonking) and it hasn't leaked. Flavor is good, not fantastic. But in single coil mode I like it. I like that it's versatile with the coil options and aiflow rings. I also like how squonk freindly it is. I haven't watched a Reverie video yet but maybe I should. Daniel DSJBL Vapes does a great job with his vids and it's been helpful.

    Oh, and the Drop is sitting on my Basium. Flavor is pretty good right away. I just threw some 24ga kA1 dual coils in there. My Basium has been fine since airing it out. Hopefully it stays that way. That's the run down on my new RDAs from this week :D.

    We seem to agree on most RDAs that we both have, but the Nudge ain't one of them, apparently. I didn't like it much. Need to pull it back out and see what build I put into it - that may be the problem. Now that I'm used to using these staged coils, other kinds just don't do it for me.

    Wish I could convince someone else to try a VA Radius V2 clone. Cheap as dirt at FT, terrific flavor RDAs. I paid a little more for the first one I got from Aliexpress, it was about $13, but the $5 one I got from FT seems to be exactly the same except for the color. Also the Pocket RDA. Both of em are just exceptional, but very restricted DL.

    I can charge Ijoy 20700s in my LUC V6. It's tight but once you get a rythm to it, it's no problem.

    Awesome! Thank you, I'm looking to get some soon, hopefully on next payday. I really want to get some for my Hugo Vapor BF and my Luxotic NC. I think they will hit so much better then.

    Got a nice package from @Fictitious Character today on a trade. Cleaned it up and getting to know it. Really like it so far with the Kali V2 in black and then Ultem.

    Well, was working in my car. And since the whole TOWN smelled funny, I didn't notice right away that my laptop had settled onto my vape (in the center console) and pushed the button. Didn't harm the RDA, or the battery, or even ruin the wicking - but it got hot enough that the drip tip failed. Like the bottom separated from the top. And I'm working in my car cuz I'm on the road.
    Fortunately, I have a whole other mod with me - but I'm still using both.

    I'm "chuffing" on a 22mm Flave.
    Better not get any spitback!!

    Black Folgers in my preferred morning vape accompaniment. When I was a kid I’d drink it with so much sugar it’d taste like Smacks cereal lol

    I like sweet iced coffee, but when the coffee is hot, I want it black! I also drink my tea unsweetened.

    You ever have the problem at restaurants, you order black coffee, and when they bring the coffee they always ask if you want cream and sugar? I don't think young people know what black coffee is.

    All the restaurants around town leave bowls with assortments of creamer and sugar...even the smaller non chain places do it too...the food scene around here is pretty lame lol. The awesome food is just about the only thing I miss from living in Chicago. Unsweetened tea all the way, my relatives from the south always try to slip in the sugar but it never works.

    lol I thought about it after I'd said that about the tea - in other parts of the country, there's nothing unusual about drinking tea unsweetened. It's only down here "below the line" that people wrinkle up their noses if you ask for unsweet. God help them if they reach over and take an unprepared swig of my tea. Then it's all bluster and blech and omg how do you DRINK THAT?

    In a previous life when I used to travel a bit on business, I went with a coworker to dinner at Smith and Wollensky in NYC. Server looked at me like I had three heads when I asked for unsweetened tea. Just habit, dang, gimme a break! :D

    My husband pines for Chinatown in Chicago, used to talk about it all the time when we were younger. He was at Chanute in the Air Force and spent some of his R&R time in Chicago. I've never been but would love to go. Looks like a beautiful city, and everyone I've ever met from there was friendly enough. Don't know how people live with that wind and cold, though.

    I was tail piping the Phenom the last few hours of work today too. Drip tip broke. I had a Rebel/Strike set up with me but the flavor in the Phenom was worth tail piping lol.

    Kinda fixed an old mod.

    Not really perfect - tried and failed to replace the negative strip, but it's nice to use it again.
    Heck, tossed on a Hadalay - that's nice to use again, too... :)

    Really could use a properly formed silver strip in there, but it would have to be a weird shape, and I just suck at stuff like that.

    Yeah - it doesn't - but nice flavor, and good for a little bit - nice change of pace is all.
