    Finally stepping into mech's

    I've finally decided to get myself a mech and run it 18350 with a VV kick for a shortish everyday mod.
    Started looking at the KeCig K100 but have looked back at the Hamoriko and am thinking maybe that would be a better option and I just join the waiting list for one with the extra 18500 tube.

    Any opinions? especially from those who have a Hamoriko already.


    All comments appreciated.


    #just noticed at time of this post I'm 200 days off the stinkies and 2800 darts better off, perfect time to celebrate with a purchase.

    Yes, the life of an 18350 is short, but with a couple of AW IMRs you can keep one on the charger or carry a spare with you.
    The Hamoriko looks good for the price.

    I've manage on a 18350 if I put in a fresh charged battery right when I go out for a night. 9pm-4am. And I'm using a .8ohm coil. And this is while drinking with friends. And I'll be vaping more than they smoke. Because generally I go to places that I know I'm welcome to vape inside. And I'll still venture out with my friends when they want a smoke. But I wouldn't recommend it. Not safe to push battery limits like that. The high drain of a low res coil over that amount of time and use runs a very high risk of over draining the battery. 18500's are a safer option and have higher Mah and higher amp limit. Nemesis clones are a very tried and tested mech. I have two brass and they're all I use. While my DNA20 is on holiday to the states(for repairs)

    18500 would be preferable if you're using rebuildables. On the other hand, the 18350 + kick combo will protect the batteries from over-discharging.

    Not bothered by carrying a couple spare batt's in a box, I always have somewhere safe to stash the spares box anyway.
    Also the 18500 tube is required if using a kick so would have that option anyway. And mostly be using tanks like a PT2 or similar not overly bothered with rebuilding at this point, more just chasing that elusive pocket size tbh.

    Cheers folks

    Skip the kick & run 18490's.
    A kick just detracts from a mech IMO.

    18350's all day everyday FTW. No hassle carrying some spares.
