    With vaping having advanced a lot over the past few years, there are many “styles” of vaping

    We have the traditional “old school MTL”, be it on a RTA or a Pod. Typically lower powered with higher Nic juice.

    We then have the squonking fraternity, mech or regulated. Higher power or lower power, MTL and direct lung. Wide range of Vapes available with squonking. The attraction a while back was dripper like flavour with tank like convenience. Although tank flavour has improved leaps and bounds over the years.

    Then we have the restricted Direct Lung RTA - medium power and medium air - a classic choice and quite popular amongst enthusiasts. Many tanks fit this category, for example the famous Dvarw!

    We also have the dripping clan. RDA on Mech or regulated. Low air or high air but I suspect most are into higher air and higher powered drippers. Nothing like a great dessert juice in a big air dripper!

    And we have the higher airflow higher powered RTAs. Often dual coil and big wide air slots. Lots of power. Convenience of a tank. Guzzlers.

    And let’s not forget the pod and stick crowd. Pods have become very popular lately. Stealth, portability, ease of use. Often with Nic salt juices to pump up the performance because the power is typically lower.

    Finally, and it’s perhaps not a style as such but am putting it here as a separate category - the disposable tank fraternity. For example, the ijoy Mystique, Convenience and ease of use is the draw and here and the flavour on some of these is very good.

    Lots of variety indeed. A style to suit many types of vapers. And it can be quite complicated to newer vapers!

    Have I missed any?
    What styles do you use?

    Perhaps after this thread develops a bit we can create a poll of sorts.

    Dripping ftw. If you have never forgotten to replace the top cap on your dripper, lifted it to your lips and drawn deeply on the exposed and still-scorching dual Claptons, you just haven't experienced vaping at its finest.

    A poll would be a good idea. I would also like to know what the preferences of others are.

    For me, it's mostly restricted DL RTA. Having said that I still squonk and drip and blow the odd cloud. I even use an AIO as well as the disposable Mystique tanks.

    I have a bit of a mental block when it comes to MTL. It's almost five years since I last smoked but MTL reminds me of smoking.

    Squonking ftw, mech & regulated, restricted DL and MTL.
    Excluding my BB, I have only 1 tank in use, all the rest are BF drippers.

    Not yet experienced vaping at its finest, quite happy with existing experiences.

    Personally, I do almost every kind of vaping at the moment

    Fatality M25 RTA - For open air Dual coil Cloud Chasing Goodness
    Juggerknot Mini RTA - For Single coil Restricted DL flavor Chasing Goodness
    Gata RTA - For single coil (0.8 - 1.0 Ohm) MTL Goodness
    Drop RDA - For Dual coil Dripping Flavor & Cloud Chasing Goodness
    GR1 Pro RDA - For dual coil Squonking Goodness
    Vaporesso Aurora Play - For Stealth pod system Goodness.

    I usually use one of these for around 2 days then swap out for another to keep things interesting. The Aurora Play I use everyday at work at my desk for the stealth hits.

    Excellent post @Silver. Like many forumites I have various set ups covering most of the styles you have mentioned, ranging from Beserker mtl on Pico to mechs and drippers for dtl, and various regulated devices running rtas. Tried the squonk thing a few times but is not for me. Not keen on pods either but everything is subjective. Of all the gear collected over a decent period time I still have only one tank that is used on a daily basis, the much under rated Kangertech sub tank mini.

    Thanks @Neal
    That Subtank Mini is indeed underrated. Snap. Mine also in use on a daily basis. It’s my main ‘car vape’

    On my side I have tried all the styles mentioned above

    The ones I use most by far are
    Squonking - MTL - on the Reo/RM2 - tobacco MTL king for me
    Restricted DL - Skyline, Subtank Mini, Lemo1, Billet Box
    old school MTL - on the Evod1
    MTL RTA - Rose - I like it a lot

    I use the higher power gear and the drippers on occasion but not very often.

    Hadaly RDA in dripping mode gets quite a bit of dripping action for flavour testing

    I am also enjoying the iJoy Mystique disposable tanks - and have one permanently loaded - lovely flavour

    Havent gotten into the pods properly - but I do have a Twisp Cue which I like for high stealth or when going out to a function etc and a normal mod would be a bit odd. Cue is fantastic to slip in a shirt pocket.

    I've come to realize it's a numbers game...

    Higher Nic satisfaction = pods higher nic pay more for pods... lower juice consumption not really as you pay premium for pods

    Clouds Bro Clouds lower nic = RDAs RTAs but much higher juice consumption

    MTL = higher nic more satisfaction fsck the pods and vape own juice much lower juice consumption.... FTW
