    Switched from analog to electronic in October 2017 and have stayed with it. Thanks to my guru, @kentamayo, I have a 24/7 help desk via FB Messenger. So far, I chuck clouds using these gear.

    My acquisition of three weeks ago: the Dead Rabbit replaced the iJoy Combo on my squonk setup. Better flavor!

    My latest RDA: the GeekVape Blitzen twin-coil, side airflow RTA.

    I’m enjoying this hobby. What used to be a stinky habit has become a pleasant (and safer) hobby, with the side benefit of stoking my GAS.

    I had two before. Broke after a few months. Didn’t buy anymore.

    thanks Leeger,

    I got mine 2 weeks ago, so far so good. But still smoke regular cigs once in a while, but a bit less now.

    Will see how long will mine last.

    cheers!

    Well infairness to iqos, the first one broke because it’s my fault. The metal inside snapped cause i cleaned it the wrong way. I liked iqos better than vape. Iqos felt more like a real cigarette. Where did you buy yours btw?

    Its because iQos has regular tobacco right? Along with the nicotine and tar that comes with it?

    I got it from lighter's galore.

    Yes you are right, its very much like a real cig. I also tried vape before, but i like the iqos better.

    Yeah you’re right, though PMI is claiming that iqos is less risky than a regular cigarette. A claim which is being challenged by a lot of regulators.

    I have been using Kangertech Topbox Mini for years and buying the SSOCC ready-to-use coils. But recently SSOCC coils have poorer quality and seem to die faster and faster.

    Any recommendations for a good rebuildable system? I'm starting from scratch again so any advice would be appreciated. I hope to still use my old 18650 batteries.

    TIA!

    Godfather, you might want to try aspire breeze 2. It's a pod system. I've been watching youtube reviews and it seems good. Downside is you have to buy your own coil for the price of 180 - 190 pesos, can last for 2 weeks but depends on the type of juice you use. Internal battery is around 1000mah, reviewers said it last only for 5hrs. again, depends on the user.

    For rebuildable, I'm using the Pulse Bottom Feed 80w mod, paired with Gas mods G.R 1 RDA. Both came from Denkat which I purchased last vape event at metrowalk tent.

    HTH!

    Thanks! I prefer an RTA rather than RDA, but will take a look at the Denkat store.

    Ok now I'm lost in the myriad of choices for RTAs. I'm all thumbs when it comes to building a coil and wicking. I tried it on my Kangertech RBA, but it always came out 9.9 Ohm and flashing so it won't fire. One time I got lucky and made it work, but the wire only lasted a couple of days.

    I've seen Ammit, Blitzen, Vandy Vape and Zeus as some of the most popular RTAs, but which one is the easiest to build and wick?

    @Chito Limson How is your Blitzen? I saw it being sold on Lazada, and it looks interesting.

    UPDATE : Finally got out of the stone age and into the digital age.

    [​IMG]

    Hcigar Warwolf mod (red was the only color they had left, would've wanted the all stainless one).

    Paired with a Kylin Mini (single coil) RTA.

    The Kylin produces mucho clouds, but my old Kangertech setup produced thicker clouds.

    The Warwolf gets a bit too warm to hold, but it is very compact.

    I don't know if it's the mod or the RTA, but I'm getting 50% shorter battery life during daily use as compared to the Kangertech setup.

    I'm using Vandy Vape Pyro, RDTA. One of the easiest atomizers I've had to build and wick.

    They’re great, convenient, non-drip, no distraction pods that will last 3-4 times after refilling. You get a smooth flow and sweet pull of your juice, much like a regular cigar ( which is actually what my juice is right now)
