    Hello everybody! I would like to get your opinions. I might be able to get a Lost Vape Triade soon, but I would like to know if it is worth the price R2620? It will be new. Or is there something better to buy in that pricr range? I'm lost, please help?

    You won't be sorry. Anything with a DNA chip is worth it.

    A mod is something that delivers power, they all do the same thing. Its not going to give you better flavour or anything.
    So you must basicaly decide if the looks and feel is worth the price

    DNA Chips are great and give very good power delivery to the coils. There are cheaper mods available with DNA chips, it will come down once again (like all things within Vaping) to personal preference. The Lost Vape mods are quality built and durable, hence the price tag. Something like the I-joy shogun i have heard only great things about but cannot comment out of personal experience. If you do a little homework on OHM's law and battery safety you can maybe look at a Mech mod, or even a PWM mod like a Noisy Cricket or Tesla Invader III (both of these are available for well under R1k) You need to sit and see what your personal requirements and preference will be. Sorry for the tangent :--P

    I have to differ here to some extent, I have used the same RDTA on 3 different mods and had 3 different experiences.
    at 80w there was a distinct difference between the Geekvape Aegis, the RX300 and the Tesla Invader III (With the potentiometer set to give roughly around 75w of power with the 0.18ohm coil set that is in the RDTA. The Aegis felt "flat" and had little vapour production as the ramp up on the chip is very slow. The RX300 had a much better performance, but also slow, the Invader had crisp fast firing and gave me the best out of those alien coils. Mods do make a difference, albeit a small one in some people opinions.

    @KZOR whats your verdict on the Drone 250c so far? My plan was to get one and stick an Apocalypse or Goon22 on it.

    My 2c here- other than my noisy v2's- everything i use in daily rotation has a dna chip in it (75c/250/250c). very reliable (the therion 166's have been in daily use for over 18 months and havent failed even once).

    Must agree, I always thought a mod is a mod is a mod....Not! I was always happy with my Fuchai 213 and still am but comparing it to the new X217 they are worlds apart on the same settings, coils ect. The X217 hits harder and better, almost like a instant hit compared to the older 213 which takes longer at the exact same watts.

    I can understand, to some extent, where @Jean claude Vaaldamme is coming from when he says a mod is a mod. In your example, if you play around with the settings you should be able to fairly accurately imitate the performance on the Invader. With the RX300, for example, you could set a high wattage preheat which will result in a faster ramp up. You can play around with the wattage and time settings until you get what you want.

    As vapers IMO we tend to always look for something "better" . When it comes to regulated mods, the chip or board can make a difference. In the past, the DNA chip was arguably the best. These days YiHi, Omni, Gene etc have largely caught up. I bought a mod with a DNA chip to see for myself if I found it better than all the others I own. I like it, and it is really good, but is it better ? I honestly couldn't say.

    Agreed, you can setup curves and Preheats, bypass etc. but off the bat, as is, there is definitely a difference between chipsets and power delivery to the coils

    Yes there is a difference between a 5k cellphone and a 20k cellphone, but most normal people will not even notice, you will have to tell them what the difference is.
    How do you know someone uses an Iphone? They tell you.

    Thank you for all your input and advise, I am now even more unsure what to get. I understand A LOT of it comes down to personal preference, and the flavor depends on how you wick it and the type of cotton and coil and all those nice goodies. I do own a iJoy Shogun among others and it's definitely one of my favorites although it's a bit heavy. It does what it's supposed to do and maybe it's also because I haven't used a DNA mod before that I wont know of any better but sounds like I should rather get another 2 Shogun's for that price and still have change.

    I don't feel that I am ready for a mech yet and like the idea that the chip in the regulated mods keeps everything safe. I have vaped on a Furyan mech before and must say that it was quite impressive with it's ability to instantly hit you with a lung full of vapour. I'm sure I will get one in the future but still finding my feet with vaping so happy with using regulated for now.

    So then, any recommendations on a regulated, not squank mod? I have a Shogun, Vapor Storm Puma and a Billet Box, and I would like to get another 2 mods if possible as I have 4 tanks.

    ever considered the Noisy Cricket V2 or Tesla Invader III? It's PWM, so it has Safety Measures, but hit's like a mech mod. Size is also good. Or maybe if you are looking for something "Fancier" a Hex?

    If you get your Lost Vape there, you'll still have change for a Noisy ;):

    If the Shogun is too heavy for you I believe that the Triade is slightly heavier.

    Cricket v2, Invader III and Hex are all PWM
