    Hi everyone

    Newbie here trying to get into the vaping scene and get completely off cigs.
    The dilemma I'm sitting with is which device to choose between the 2.
    A buddy of mine got both brand new and wants to get rid of 1,so which of the 2 is the 1 to get?

    Both are great little devices and as much as I love my Aliens I'd pick the Pico out of this particular line-up :)

    +1 for Pico. The AL85 seems to have defects and many guys have reported that the mod died after a while. For this reason, the Pico is the winner.

    I agree with the Pico25. At some point most of us turn towards RTA's and RDA's and finding 22mm attys isn't always easy.

    Of the two I'd have the PICO as I'm not a fan of most SMOK stuff. That said, my favourite small, single battery, 22mm device is still the Joyetech e-Vic Vtwo Mini. Add a tank such as an Ammit 22 (or similar) and it's a killer combo!

    I know eCiggies in PTA still has a few of them left, i'd grab one!

    Hi Peeps

    So i'm really enjoying this vaping experience,thought i could kick the cigs to the curb but it aint that easy:grimacing:
    At least i'm down to 3 cigs a day:wink:

    Only 1 thing is bugging me,is it normal for the atomizer to get really hot while vaping?

    Yip its quite normal. Also depends on the wattage you using.

    I take it you chain vaping the hell out of the pico. You should be using 6mg nic juice if you trying to quit the cigs.

    Maybe post what you vaping? Juice, wattage coil?
