My comparison review of the Aspire Vivi Nova, vs Evod2 vs T3D

I thought I would do a review of these three in case anyone else out there is trying to decide on one of them.I’ve used all of them on my itaste vv 3 switched to variable wattage. I think I average about 8 watts.

I guess I’ll start with the Kangertech Evod2 since I had it first. I have a glass one. I REALLY love this thing. It did gurgle a bit in the beginning, but I found a fix here. It works flawlessly now. It doesn’t leak or spit out hot juice. Smooth perfect function, lots of vape, and I wouldn’t call it cool or hot…just right. My only beef with it, and the reason I went looking for something else, is it sure doesn’t hold much juice (maybe around 1.5ml. I think it burns through juice faster too. Sometimes when I’m driving I chain vape like crazy. I’ve almost emptied this tank in an hour before.

Next I bought an Aspire Vivi Nova. I think it holds 3.5ml. It definitely vapes hotter than the other two, but I actually prefer that. I think smoking analogs for me was more about the sensation than anything else, and this is closer to the analog sensation to me. It does produce a lot of vapor as well. It gurgles more than the other two, but I’ve found a few reasons why. At first I had this on my battery with a beauty ring. I read something somewhere about how that can create more of a vacuum inside and draw more fluid into where we don’t want it. So I took off the beauty ring and it got much quieter. I have since bought a beauty ring with vents in it and it works alright. another thing is there is sort of a cavity under the drip tip that I read isn’t there in the mini. It collects a lot of moisture very quickly (like after just a few draws). I think this is were most of the gurgling is actually coming from, because if I remove the drip tip and swirl a napkin or tissue around in there, the gurgling stops for a while. That fact aside, I really love it. It produces probably the best flavor of the three and I like the warm vapor. I also like the tighter draw. Personally I don’t like an airy low resistant draw. Its also the most finicky on my battery. Sometimes my itaste doesnt recognize it and I have to unscrew it and then rescrew it back on. And sometimes it readys the ohms wrong. (like it will say 3.8 or 8.4ohms)

I probably could have stopped with those two, but I wanted a third tank to use with a lower nic level for when I chain vape. So I picked up the Kanger T3D since it uses the same coils as the Evod2 but holds more. It holds 2.2ml I believe. It gurgles a bit, which was also helped by the double silicone cap method I linked to above. It doesn’t however solve it completely. This clearomizer does have the coolest vape of the three. I’m still rather new to this, but since this uses the same coils as the evod2, I’m not sure why this is. I have to turn my watts up to at least 10 to enjoy this clearo. It also has the loosest, airiest draw of the three. Something I’m not very fond of. I put a tiny piece of duct tape over one of the air holes and it helps, but its possible that why mine gurgles too. It also has the least flavor output of the three. Its definitely not my favorite, but I do appreciate that it doesn’t leak or spit out hot juice. I actually picked up a second one for my husband because he’s so active and rough on his stuff I was too afraid to get him something glass and the Evod2 wouldn’t have held enough juice for him. He seems to like his a lot, but he also has his itaste wattage up to 11 I think.

So there is my comparison. If you have any questions, or if I’ve forgotten anything, I’d be happy to answer any other questions. I’m still new on the technical side of all this, but I’ll do my best. Also, if you know of any others I might like to try, please let me know. I wish they made that glass EVOD2 in a higher capacity where it still had the metal sleeve on the outside.

Aero Juice in Crimson – creamy chai

There are nearly no reviews for Aero (<a href="http://aero-juice.com/” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”>AERO juice | AERO juice) brand e-liquid, so I went in a little hesitant.

Got myself:
Sacred Garden ("Devine sweet rose with traces of nectar from the garden") – 15ml, 8mg
Crimson ("Exotic and rare, with touches of vanilla spice, ginger, and Asian flare.") – 15ml, 8mg

Sacred Garden was quite pungent at first, quite sweet with a little bit of peach undertone fresh. I feel this needs a bit of steeping time.

Crimson is delicious. In the container, it’s a little vanilla with promising spice. First inhale, it’s vanilla spiced milk. As I continued to vape away, it just became more and more delicious. Husband even commented on how nice it smelled, and he’s not a chai guy. I give this a 9 fresh. After steeping, I can imagine (and seriously hope for) the spices becoming more lovely with time. This is so delicious, I’ll need to order the largest size next time to get me through the fall season.

Hello ECFers I’m BACK!!!!

Hello ECFers,
I’m back after life trials 😡 but happy to be back. SUCKS I couldn’t make the vape con. in Vegas…. Was in Seattle :tongue:
Still running my Noble1 but it’s taking a crap on me, it’s been leaking liquid down the positive (inside) right onto the top of my battery nipples :laugh: so I’ve been rocking my Kraken/Silverback setup 30g 5 coil single 500×500 mesh with bobas bounty 6mg and my Valkyrie 30g 10 micro coil dual (20 wraps 10/10) with cotton wicks with Watermelon Rancher from a local spot.
Anys ways just wanted update everyone that may have known me and say hello and I’m coming up on 2 years :vapor:thanks to the good people here!!!

P.S. WOW!!!!! BIG site change :unsure: trying to figure out things out still but looks good!!!

Wrapping my head around VV VW

So if I understand correctly as explained in a video I saw someplace, VV is like a manual and VW is similar to an automatic. To me this means if using VV mode I need to adjust the voltage to find the right flavor and heat for my coil. In VW mode the chip will set the voltage based on the resistance. Am I correct in this thought?

Second; if a battery is fully charged at 3.7v, how is it possible to vape at anything higher in voltage?

Third; As I see it the real advantage of VW is if I like a particular juice at 10watts, and switch to a different tank with a different resistance (same juice) the mod will match the resistance with the set wattage and still deliver a consistent vape? But I will still need to adjust the wattage for each flavor juice?

Thanks for your help with my dumb questions

Speaking of battery safety…..vendors who sell mech mods and no multimeters

I was astonished today, loooking thru vendors who sell mechanical mods and batteries——– and seemingly no good old fashioned multimeters for sale on their sites.

Altsmoke. (unless I missed it)
Myvaporstore

etc……..actually, I’d be here all day making the list.

Seems like this would be an item that every vendor who carries mechanical mods would and SHOULD have available to their customers, as we are always always preaching about it here. :facepalm:

Seems rather a huge oversight, and somewhat bordering irresponsible of people who sell batteries and mech mods not to have an old fashioned regular multimeter to go with these items so that vapors can place in their carts?

Is a REO or PROVARI really THAT good? 3rd ‘smoke FREE’ anniversary coming up!

Like the title says, "Is a REO or Provari THAT good?"

I’ll be celebrating THREE YEARS smoke free on September 25th (the day I got my ego-T in the mail with 24mg nic e-liquid.)

I already HAVE a number of mods, but I seem to prefer my MVP over everything else. I really enjoy clouds several times a week, but flavor and convenience are most important for me.

I’d LIKE to get something to comemorate THREE YEARS smoke free, but I don’t know where to look.

I DID buy a 2011 Chrysler Town & Country Van (used) with the savings over analogs, but my anniversary is calling.

WHAT mod would YOU get to celebrate YOURSELF for GRAND ACHIEVEMENT?!?!?!?!??????
