    Questions about tube-style mods

    I'm pretty happy with my istick 40w for now, but would like to get a tube-style mod next. Mainly for ease of carrying around (as well as looks).

    Having never used one, I had a few questions I was hoping people could help me with

    1. Are they all bottom firing button types?
    2. What atomiser do you use with it? I'd prefer something that blends with the mod to look good, as well as being able to hold about 3ml juice.

    I still consider myself a noobie and don't build my own or drip or any of the fancy stuff, so I was hoping to find something with as little fiddling around as possible.

    There are tube mods that have a side firing button, but generally they are more prone to problems. (with some exceptions).

    You can use any atomiser you use on a box mod on a tube. Hybrid mods look the nicest in the sense of blending in as there is no 510 connection, but they are invariably advanced gear.

    If you are considering tube mods I would recommend you get something decent second hand out of the classifieds to have a go. Good mods to try include GP, MCR, GG, and Precision Engineering. There are plenty of good mods out there, these are just a few I can think of off the top of my head.

    The other thing to consider the tube mods is battery safety. Make sure you buy genuine quality batteries from a legit supplier. I personally use AW batteries, though Samsung is also a good brand. Supersporsts600 on eBay is a great supplier of genuine batts. Be sure to get a quality charger too .

    I know it seems like a lot at first but tube mods can give you years of great service, whilst vv/vw are prone to breaking after some time.

    Hope this helps

    How about something like the cf mod. Cheap. Full of safety features (noob friendly). Its also a pretty solid mod. You will still batteries and a charger though.

    The only mods I'd heard of that had bottom firing buttons were mechs. (electrically unregulated mods). There is a general saying, "Avoid mechs. until you understand Ohm's law".

    As for regulated tube mods, there are many. I've owned Sigelie Zmax minis, Coolfire 1s & currently own a Smok Zmax mini and a pair of Provari P3s.

    You might first try your current tanks on them.

    It is really just the relative diameter that (IMO) counts when making a 'good looking' combo. For example, a P3 looks great topped by a Kangertech Aerotank Mega. But then, the P3 is the .. Cadillac of tube mods and the Aerotank Megas are becoming hard to come by.

    Note that you won't find a tube mod that has the same power output as the box mods. The P3 does 20 watt and I'd heard of another that goes as high as 35 watt. I suspect it is due to heat dissipation from the smaller space in the tube mod.

    thanks for the info everyone. Think I'll try and find a nice regulated mod while I keep reading up!

    The 2nd option looks good so I'll also be checking the classifieds!
