Mech Mod or VV/VW device?
Hi all,

I popped into a local B&M to pick up some more juice today and got chatting to the guy there.

We were chatting about batteries, voltages etc and he had an e-vic charged up and popped my mini nova on to it and and played about with the voltage a bit.

The difference between that and running it on ego batteries was massive, loads more flavour and vapour, i couldn't believe the difference.

However the e-vic was bloody massive!!

so it got me thinking......

For around £50....

Which of the smaller & cheaper mods around would give me a better vape, than i'm getting with the ego battery (which do you guys & gals recommend)?

Do i look at vv/vw or a mech mod? and pros / cons for either

Or do i say naff that and look at getting a better atomizer???

Is £50 a decent amount of cash for what i'm looking at or should i get saving??

I know you guys have probably answered the same questions a thousand times, but please bear with me.

Thanks,

Andi

if you want vv but small, you can get the l-rider robust for £20 off pink mule. its a 14500 mod so not a huge amount thicker than an ego. buy yourself a decent charger and a couple of 14500 unprotected imr's

RE: Mech Mod or VV/VW device?
As I look into my crystal ball I predict that you are about to get 10 different answers to this question....

The downside is that every one of the answers will be the correct answer for the person posting it

But here is my answer....

I like both Mech and Electronic devices

Day to Day its an electronic for me. Either an eVic or an iTaste MVP

But I still use my Mechs just as much

It is all down to you and your own needs

RE: Mech Mod or VV/VW device?
VV/VW - the devices are bigger, but it doesn't matter to much about the resistance of the atomizer you use. Good for experimenting with the effect of changing the power you use.

Mech mod - nearly always quite a bit smaller than VV/VW mods - bottom button ones are generally the smallest due to the switch section being short. It is imperative that you choose or rebuild an atomizer with the right resistance.

VV/VW gives consistent power throughout whereas mech mods the power will get less as the battery charge goes down. A VV/VW device usually cuts off when the battery is at 3.2V, whereas the mech generally needs a new battery at 3.6ihs V, though this varies a lot, and of course you can get a bigger battery for the same length of mod in a mech. You can get more power out of a mech mod IF you have a battery that will take it, but unless you want to use quad coils you probably won't need more power than a VV/VW can give.

The lifetime of a VV/VW mod is likely to be shorter than that of a good mech mod just because there is more to go wrong.

About all I can think of at the moment.

RE: Mech Mod or VV/VW device?
There comes a time in every vapers life when you need/want to control your vape better Smiling

You can either control the wattage (or voltage) - Easy, buy a VV/VW device Thumbs Up

Or you can control the resistance - Wind your own coils and match the resistance to your fixed output mech mod. Not particularly hard, but an added faff-factor.

I use both. And one day you will too HeHe!

Cheers,

Al.
