Thoughts? Us?? No, never.
Parish the thought.
OK. Righty then. I don't recommend the Smokys (CE3s) unless you have a Booster to use them on, or unless your "mod" had circuitry to protect the battery in the event of a shorted atty. The reason for this is that there is some design or manufacturing issue, and because of that these things have been know to kill batteries deader then the proverbial nail that belongs to the door.
If your mod is so equipped, or if you do have a Booster, then I highly
recommend you give the CE3s test drive.
Wonderful flavor and vapor, and they're like the energizer bunny (and they make ol' 8 a happy bunny
). You should be warned that some peeps find these a bit fiddly to fill, but I'm not one of them.
I'm a big fan of the Tanks too. My fav Tank is the Mega. Holds more juice and, IMHO it give the best flavor of all the Tanks in TW land. But just so you know, all Tanks mute the flavor a bit. Some flavors benefit from this, others not so much.
I'm not a big fan of the clearos (CE2s). I've had nothing but wicking problems with them, and it won't be long at all before you'll get the dubious pleasure of finding cracks in the plastic tube, and that's just next door to an empty clearo and a wet pocket.
The newer "ultimate" CE2s are supposed to solve the cracking problem (don't know if they improve the wicking issues). I've never tried these. Their capacity is too small for me. All that said, some people love them. You can rip the guts out of your shiny new XL CE2 and hack out the hole that the wick passes through to improve the wicking, and you can replace the outer tube with the a body that you have to make from a syringe to cure them of cracking up, but I just can't be bothered (my names not Frodrick Fronkenstine
). But I'll allow some peeps think they're so good after making these mods that they're worth the trouble.
You didn't mention the D/Cs, but I think you should consider them too (go ahead, consider them..... I'll wait). If you're a fan of throat hit and a warm vape (happiness is a warm
) this could be vaping nirvana for you. Even though I'm not that big on throat hit, I use the Mega Tornado Dual Coil Cartos and I love them. They're vape monsters I tell you. They hold a ton of juice (
which is a good thing because they use
a ton of juice..... you're juice consumption will go up noticeably with these, but in my coloring book they're worth it).
So what would I recommend?
That's where I'd put my money first. Why?
......because I said so
.... erm, I mean because it's going to improve whatever you attach to the end of it (well, maybe not grandma's dentures, but you shouldn't be playing around with them anyway). With a Booster you can tweak the heat that the coil is producing to dial in the best temperature for whatever device your using, and that translates to the best possible flavor for the atty/juice combo. Every flavor and atty combo has a
sweet spot, and a VV (variable voltage) device is how you get to it.
And now that you've got your Booster (you did get one, right?
), for your next act, I'd recommend you get.......... wait for it............. one of each.
Yup, you're not going to know which atty/carto/(whatever) suits you best until you try them. Oh, and what I said about the booster holds true about the device you're going to stick on the end of it. I've got some flavors that, no matter how I mix them or what voltage I vape them at, just plain taste better in the Smokys, while other flavors taste best in the Mega Tanks, and still other...... well, you see what I'm getting at. Get a pack of Smokeys (if there's still any available), a pack of Mega D/C cartos, and even a pack of CE2s (might want to get the "ultimate" version of these so maybe you'll dodge the cracking issue). Try your different fav flavors in each, and most importantly..... ENJOY!.
Happy vaping ean.
