    So I picked this up at B&M for £5 - best decision ever made.

    it tastes like Fanta grape.

    A work colleague recommended it as both of us have similar tastes and I love the smell of her Vaping juices. She’s currently Vaping Cherry Sherbet which I’m going to try next. It smells like the strawberry fizzers in SA but in raspberry/cherry flavouring.

    I may have a Vaping convert on my hands and my partners just asked me for suggestions on a mod - he needs one that would preferably last as long as mine on battery use.

    So any suggestions as I’m a bit out of the loop with everything at the moment.

    I start a new job as a warehouse operative in Tuesday so I’ll be able to afford a full upgrade as now I need new batteries, new mods, cotton and coils. I’m still happy with my Gear RTAs so that’s not going to change anytime soon.

    for him, I think dual battery mods would work in for what he needs. He loves the Voopoo rta and constantly uses the Vinci X too. Thing is he kills the 18650 batteries very quickly and I also need to organise a 4/6 bay battery charger too.

    The only reason he’s not smoking is because of the price of cigarettes - just simply can’t afford it anymore.

    I’ll also have to look into getting him different juices - he does not like fruit, pastries/desserts, but loves my butterscotch mints. So thinking more of a bourbon, whisky, rum type of juice.

    so a lot of new changes, I will only be able to afford it all come month end and I need a new computer. Mine just gave up the ghost…

    Voopoo argus GT with samsung 30q's or LG choc's. Golisi 2 bay charger.

    My 4 samsung 30q's are in constant rotation.
    As soon as I have to change batts, they go on charge and the fresh set goes in.
    I'm vaping at 65watts on dual coils and the batteries last while im at work. Heavy chain vaping is required to drain both sets in one day. (has been done)
    The voopoo RTA is a single coil. So I guess that the batteries should last a while longer than mine.
    I favour alien coils. Gives me the best flavour.
    Cotton bacon is the only wicking material I have ever used. Haven't had any problems.

    I really hope this post helped.

    Great to hear from you after such a long silence.
    Mods, Geekvape N200 (or is it S200?, does not say on the mod) is a bullet proof dual bat mod. Recently had a few dual bat mods fail on me within a month from new, this one seems to like a bit of rough now and then.

    The Voo Poo PnP pod tank is amazing on flavour and paired with the Wotofo recoil kit a sure cost saving winner combo. Got this tank with the Argus GT mod. The mod died three weeks in but got hooked on the pod tank.

    Juice, maybe something RY4 based may be whats needed. 4% RY4, a drop of super sweet and a flavour note of choice could just do the trick, but then juice choices are very subjective. No harm trying though.

    Good luck.

    Regards

    Sounds like my plan which is why I have two mods. One to drain then charge batteries and use the other one while the drained batteries get charged.

    he tried my gear rta and doesn’t like it. So he wants the one with pnp coils, it’s easier for him.

    Interesting as the butterscotch mints juice I make is ry4, rum, butterscotch, mint etc…

    I need him to have a rotation of different juices so he doesn’t get bored using one constantly.

    I’ll chat with him about what flavours he’ll like to have. It’s far much cheaper to mix juice and do my own coils.

    I got to be honest, him giving up smoking has been the best thing he’s done. The house no longer stinks and I can sleep better, even when he vapes, it does not bother me.

    @MIKE6236 with my Gear rta, it’s between 15-20w depending on what juice I vape.

    I have a varied mix - passion fruit juice, butterscotch mints, strawberry, peppermint crisp and rarely lemon cream cronut as that tends to be overly sweet.

    Now and then I get store bought juice for a change.

    @Raindance he prefers the Voopoo MAAT tank - leaks like a mofo but I think it’s the 0.13 ohm coil he prefers. Looking at trying to get rebuildable spares here in the uk but I honestly have no idea of where to look.

    He vapes at an high wattage. I’m just glad I kept the horrible tank, it’s been put to good use. Which reminds me I have a mod he can have that I never use. Just needs batteries.

    you’ve seen at the start of my journey I went straight into doing rebuildables for my first mod and tank.

    so with my experience, it’s not gonna be hard to do it all over again. Plus look for some suitable juice recipes for him as well.

    @Raindance i keep finding stuff that allows the gear RTA to have mesh coils but I can’t find anything on it except videos and pictures.

    I want the mesh coil but need the deck to allow mesh coil strips. Mine has a deck with screws in for only wrapped coils.

    EDIT: turns it’s misleading advertising. The Gear RTA mesh coil does not exist. It’s only for the profile RDA.

    I’ve had Zeus before but not the mesh one, last one was a bad experience and also it’s not low profile.

    Now I’m looking at it and tempted to give it a try. Only thing that puts me off is the glass - I tend to drop stuff so not sure if it’s a good idea.

    Just seen the Profile m RTA, looks good.

    So I’m not sure which to get…
