    Questions about RBAs

    Hey guys,

    Pardon me is this question sounds really noobish. I've been vaping for slightly more than a year and have been using carto tanks and clearos for the longest. After seeing the influx of rebuildables hitting the market.. I was wondering are they really worth the price and how exactly do they differ from my carto tank set up right now.

    TIA!

    When you get the working correctly they are a bit better than Cartos for flavor & vapor production.
    They take a lot of patience to get to that state though & if you don't like fiddling/tinkering, then you are probably better off sticking to cartos/tanks that are easy to set up & vape on.
    Both systems have pros & cons, RBAs for some are "vaping's nirvana", for others RBAs are a PITA & too fiddly.

    I vape genesis exclusively now, ss mesh and Kanthal & nichrome coils.
    Mainly it started off as a fear of burning pollyfil in cartos and silica & fiberglass wick in clearos.
    ECF has a long long long thread on Wick materials. Safe vs dangerous..
    it makes some very good reading if you find the summaries, but now it is a love of genesis as they are the Ferrari & Lamborghini of the vaping world IMHO.
    Vaping since July 2012.

    Get the WM Zombie (AGA-T) from Vaping mad. Cheap for starter and works a treat. Easy to setup.

    Definitely go for something like the AGA-T, affordable and "relatively" easy to setup, read, watch, look and learn, especially oxidizing wicks to begin with, therein lies the biggest stumbling block for many!

    When you get the whole lot together, then you won't look back, Nirvana!
