    Hi

    I have been struggling for years to get the wife to quit smoking. Out of the blue she picked up the Twisp Cue and decided that she is done smoking. Hallelujah!
    Problem, Cue pods are discontinued and hard to come by. Also having 1 device makes it difficult. So no problem, we will find something...........

    Since her decision her sister and brother in law ( 60 a day smoker ) also quit, using the same process.

    Found the following

    Vuse device - Hates it / Lasted all of 2 weeks
    Renova Zero with salts - Ok but draw seems a bit dated for lack of a better word.
    All my sub ohm devices are not salts friendly, and the normall juice does not seem to hit the spot for her.... Yet

    Vladdin X - Absolutely fantastic! Pod's becoming impossible to find constantly @Hooked the coffee is great

    Disposables - Tried all I think .
    Vozol disposable Fantastic! But stocks are limited and it remains a massive concern with regards to disposable... Environmental impact.

    So Now we are after a Pod system, refillable, MTL. Plenty available but it seems the coil/pod availability remains a challenge. Disposable Vozol at 1.8ohm and 50mg Salts seems to be her sweet spot.

    How about some advice and guidance to help me keep this train on track

    Thanks so much for telling me about the Vladdin X's coffee @Cornelius!

    As far as pod systems go, Univapo's Kipo and Miso are excellent.
    Here's my Miso review.
    And here's my Kipo review.

    To add to the above, please try and get to the Vape meet on the 20th of this month. There you will be able to speak to like minded people and gain some insight into what juice for her.

    Hi

    Thank you for all the feedback so far. As I said the challenge remains availability of pods/coils in the long run.
    Nevoks Pagee looks like a winner as well and coils seem to be interchangeable with in the product range. Although the highest ohm coil i could see was 1.0 ohm. Not sure how that would work for Salts.

    1.0ohm (or above) is perfect for salts @Cornelius.

    I'd go with Miso range including Kipo from @univapo if you're worried about pods and coils @vicTor and @StompieZA will hook you up.
    The @FreeMax range of pods is also good. I think @VapeKing stocks there pods and coils.

    Add the Caliburn G to the mix as well for a tighter, more cigarette like draw. Nevoks Feelin is similar.

    Vuse? Nope, tried one and the device lasted all of a single charge before crapping out on me.

    Take the Vuse back and they will replace it @DavyH. Some of them do give problems.

    Thank forgot about the @Nevoks Feelin. Its nice too, very tight draw on the MTL side. RDL ain't bad either.

    @Cornelius the Vladdin isn't a full-on disposable. The pod is disposable, but the device still needs to be charged, doesn't it? I'd like a disposable e-cig i.e. like the Vozol, which doesn't even need to be recharged. When it's finished, throw the whole thing away. There are some coffee ones available overseas, but ohhh definitely not cost-effective for me to buy them!

    yes exactly. Very similar to the Cue.
