    My s#@thouse luck with mech mods

    I remember my first mod, the silver bullet. It was the bee’s knees of the ecig world; after all, Dr Vapour on YouTube said so. At the time it cost about $150-$200. I loved it and it was awesome with a LR 306 atomiser. After five months of use the switch had to be pressed on funny angles to fire the bastard up. Good money thrown down the toilet as far as I was concerned.

    I then bought a saber touch. After a fortnight of use it was in continuous fire mode. I got it replaced after some fighting with the supplier. The same thing occurred but this time it was in my pocket. The drip tip melted, burned through my work uniform and burned my skin. I got my money back.
    *
    After that I had tried box mods and other various types of cheaper options. At least if they broke I wouldn’t be as disappointed, that was the idea any way. Variable voltage started getting popular so I dabbled into that world for a bit. I decided that 3.7v was fine, especially vaping LR 306 attys.
    *
    I decided to get a megaladon. They looked pretty cool and I liked the idea of the bottom switch. I went on the site that sold them and they were sold out. I posted on the AVF asking if any one was keen to part with their mod for a few quid. I left the computer to feed the kids and prepare them for bed. After putting the rug rats to bed I went back on the computer to see if any one replied to my post. Some one offered me one but some prick sniped my post and bought it off him (I hate arseholes like that). I thought bugger it, off to YouTube to look at some vape porn. I watched a vid on the X-haler. I bought the X-haler. What a piece of shit. The sticker cover came off with in a week and I had to clean it daily to get a half decent performance out of it. The only useful thing I have done with it is take the spring out to extend my wife’s Vamo spring. **
    *
    I bought a SMOK telescope at the beginning of this year and within a couple of days the locking mechanism got threaded just from general use. I now have to put it on an angle to lock it and it usually takes three or four attempts. Because the Telescope does that, I’ve been put off from using it now.

    I am interested in the Megaladon still and Precise appeals also.I would be interested in hearing what other people would recommend on the mechanical side of things?
    Just ignore me and I'll go away.

    only mech mod I have that still gets used at times is a hex.
    I tried thrashing it with a 0.9Ω coil a few days ago and it was being a bit fussy.
    I have not adjusted it for the battery or cleaned the switch though, I have not written it off by a long shot.

    dumb question, but why the mech mod appeal ?
    With my 0.9Ω coil I gave up on the hex instead of cleaning it and have just chucked it on a 2 year old provari hassle free. no need to frig around, it just works.

    theres heaps of mech mods floating around.. options ranging from silver contacts, magnetic buttons, adjustable centre pins etc...
    mech mods has come along way since the SB days. not saying that the SB is shite.. ( i have had 2 and i love them ).
    today mods are just made more sturdier and robust, with improved conductivity on some.

    too many to mention but heres a few that i think is probably worth checking out:

    Chi_you
    Poldiac
    Nemesis
    Caravela
    Nzonic
    The Pulse
    JM22
    Paps
    Gus

    and a whole lot more..

    i think the don and P+ are awesome mods too..

    I picked up the Paps 2.1 this week and it is a great mod for the money. Really simple, direct brass contacts, no spring/ battery contact, 2 way telescoping post (no battery wobble and good atty contact). Cant fault this one.

    Stoney, I like the idea of a bottom switch especially when it comes to genesis atomisers. I don't have to hold my mod in retarded positions just to line the air hole towards me. I agree, ProVari is gold. Awesome with a cobra cos I can choose which hole to use for a wick. I like the idea of kicking a telescope and tinkering around with stuff, keeps me amused. Thanks for the tips guys. Isn't the KTS super thin?

    it is in 18650 when the middle is exposed. but in 18500 you have two tubes around the battery. also, telescopic mods let you line up the wick and button. pinky button are odd at first, but you get used to it.

    sounds like its time for you to buy a decent mod. Problem will be availabliity.

    Mods above all worth a go, keep an eye on the F5 F5 thread to see what available.

    Tek - has some gus's still in stock in melbourne - i would replace the 510 connector on them though (cost about $15 to order one in), and you cant put them down without locking it as the button is soft, but otherwise its a good mod.

    I dont like telescopic mods, prefer to just swap tube lengths. Saves on size/weight and no concerns about tube wobble etc.
    I have 50% Originals and 50% clones, am too lazy to try to change the world and bored with the whole debate

    Get a Super T, the P+ is good and the ELA will be released next week. I have a few mechs and all are good but for durability Super T is just about a sure thing.

    All the above mentioned are also very good.

    I agree smash. I was put off by the end buttons once I bought an xhaler. Bloody pinky finger was pretty buff after that. I still like the simple looks of the Don however you can't kick it with an 18650. Gus looks nice but modding a mod doesn't seem too appealing to me Mick; however, a soft switch does sound nice. GGTS looks good however they are quite rare like most of the famous mods out there. Telescopics do feel a bit funny and I don't mind 18650 specific mods.
    Just ignore me and I'll go away.
