    Good day mech veterans

    Im looking at getting a mech as a bullet proof back up / novalty set up

    I am fully aware of ohms law, the risks, safty precautions and battery safety involved with mechanical and hybrid mods and do not need lectures but my ears are open

    I have been looking at the geekvape karma kit (cheaper option) wich received nothing but praise from my homework

    Second option would be a KO by HHA with a goon

    Please feel free to express your opinion and suggestions

    Thanks in advance

    All comes down to how much you wanna spend?

    If you got the cash to blow you can hook yourself up with a bad ass comp lyfe mech for R4000 from Vape Cartel

    But nothing wrong with the K.O mech and goon.
    Thats what i use at home and no issues. I love it and it really is a awesome heavy duty good mod.

    Props for the speedy response, im aiming to stay under 3k with 2 batts. That is a beautiful set up, out of curiosity,

    dose the KO have any insulation inside the tube?

    Dose the copper goon affect the taste at all?

    Any comments on spring vs magnetic buttons?

    And lastly, is that a hands tip? :)

    Regards

    The Goon is my favourite RDA and i wouldnt replace it on that setup with anything else.

    There is no insulation inside the Mod so always check your battery wraps when putting in a new battery.

    As for Spring vs Magnetic, The K.O uses a spring.

    I find it more difficult to press than a magnet but it also feels more solid than a magnet.
    But i do not think it makes any diffrence to the vape.

    I have the Karma (my first mech)
    And I have absolutely no problem with it whatsoever.
    For the price, I doubt you will find anything that compares.

    My findings regarding mechs so far, is get awesome 30-35A Batts. They are the Achilles heel of a mech, as long as you have a solid copper mech, and a decent RDA, that is where you would wish you spent more bucks.

    Either way, you can't go wrong.
    The vape lies in your build. I found my sweet spot at 0.23-0.25 ohm, but I can't go lower because of my Batts.
    Vtc4 or the like.
    Check mooch chart.

    Good luck and happy Hunting
