anywho i figured id try a different RDA, but im very picky hence when i find something i like, i buy a lot in fear of not having access to them down the road.
The Choice RBA was something I took a chance on, more expensive than I wanted to spend on a "trial" but well worth it with a few exceptions.
It is VERY close to the design of the ERA which I have been wanting to get, but not wanting to spend $80 on.
The Choice was a good choice (hah) for me for a few reasons.
1. all stainless steel
2. adjustable airflow (which is awesome)
3. pretty ok looks (and it came with a sweet drip tip ill never use but give to a friend or something lol)
amazing vape and airflow. The posts are very easy to setup a good coil on, and the 3 piece design with 3 airholes (3x 1mm) allows you to have 1x 1mm, 2x 1mm or 3x 1mm holes pumping good ole oxy onto the coil. I prefer 3x 1mm and it rips.
the o rings…the holes had some pretty gnarly burs on them and they chewed up the o rings and they are thin enough to begin with. I polished the inside of the airholes to smooth them out and they are fine now, but the o rings are not.
I found replacement o rings so no biggie, but overall this thin is buil well and for $16 it’s a great RDA
anyone looking for a good RDA similar to the ERA not wanting to spend a boat load on it should check it out. I still prefer the IGO L because of the size, this Choice RBA is rather tall about twice as tall as the IGO L, so for you stealth vapers it’s not the best.
I just tried a simple 1-flavor juice, using FlavourArt Cowland Blend Tobacco. I would like to eventually add some honey or other flavor to it, but wanted to see how it was by itself first.
I’d read here that with the FA tobacco flavors you need to start low, and work up. I started with 2% in a 70/30 mix at 12mg and couldn’t taste anything but a very faint "floral" or "perfume" taste. No tobacco taste at all. So I added another percent of Cowland Blend flavoring and still had nothing, so I went to 5% and still just have a floral/perfumey taste, only more of it.
Since I also read here that FA tobacco flavors need to steep, I tried a "quick-steep" with hot water baths and a lot of shaking, but it didn’t seem to change much.
So now it’s sitting on the shelf with the cap off of the bottle. I guess I’ll wait a few days and try it again. Hopefully it will make something vapeable.
Did any of you guys have a similar experience???

– I’ve been VERY careful with this stuff
– I currently vape at 80pg/20vg % at 12-18mg nic. This could change.
So I want to cut it down to where I’m not in a state of paranoia whenever I’m mixing.
Is there a discernible difference when diluting nic with PG or VG besides VG being thicker?
Which one would be better for freezer storage in glass jars, if any?
Smok ViVi Nova 2.0 ml TANK
Has Drip tip
Original juice was 70% VG
battery life is short. Light begins blinking within an hour of moderate use. Tastes weird shortly thereafter. Vapor production drops until I put new battery in. (These are 1050 mah batteries which I thought were some of the best.)
Hits harsh. After searching, I vaped Pure VG, no nicotine. Still harsh. Heavily diluted the nicotine to possibly 3% into VG. Still harsh. VG diluted with water. Still harsh. 1.8ohm heads… It doesn’t matter if I hold the vapor in my mouth for 2, 3, 5, or 7 seconds.
Vapor production is not that impressive. Even when I don’t inhale it, still not that impressive. I’d like about 3x the production I’m getting. 1.8 ohm heads
It looks like I’m going to have to start over and buy a new one. Any recommendations to either remedy the problem or for a different PV that might produce a better vape, let me know.
Things I have tried:
Congratulations on kicking the can. Lol.
