Title: Need help choosing a new e-cig
Post by: calith on April 07, 2010, 08:32:07 PM
Hi all. I have been using an intellicig for a little while now and want to upgrade but cant seam to find an e-cig for a resonable price that fits my need and would like the help of the community.
first off i want a voltage of 3.7 with 2400 mh protected so i can last the day on 1 battery.
secondly i would prefer a 510 atomiser as i have heard that gives a good vape as well as taste.
thirdly i dont have time to be dripping so i will need to be using decent carts that i can refill.
fourth i would like a manual button on the side near the top rather than a button on the base.
and last of all i want to be spending around ?70 all in.
the closest i have found is the silver bullet but that is ?90 without the batterys.
any help would be appreciated.

P.S sorry for posting in the 6v thread section but there isnt one for 3.6v  ;D

hi mate,

really with the description you just gave i think the only device i could suggest would in fact be the silver bullet! lol

you can get it here for ?69.99 :-

but i think that is for just the body so you would have to still get batteries, charger and atomiser etc. but you can probably get all those for about ?20 i would have thought.


here is my review of the silver bullet:-

or for something a little cheaper how about the tornado? its a good device and the battery will keep you going for the whole day (depending on usage, but it lasts me the day)

here is the tornado review:-

hope that helps!

cheers,

scott


ps........the 3.6v section is just above this one and called "Regular Electronic Cigarettes"..............i think i will rename it though  ;)  lol

Good idea Scott...LOL

Doesn't the Little Gem form Garry Dibley do a decent 3.7v vape.?... :)

yeah definitely! and for ?40 that includes everything! (i think!)

but that does have the button at the bottom though rather than on the side. just checked.........sold out at the moment :(

thanks for the sujestions. the little gem looks very nice but they use a 900mAh battery. i think the only battery that will last me is gonna be a 18650  (2400mAh).
i get through 2 1/2 of the intellicig batterys  per day.
its a shame there isnt a discount code for the silver bullet.
looks like i may have to start saving up ,unless i can find someone selling one second hand :(

The 18650 is a good battery and lasts a long time but its massive.....I think the SB is too...
Just make sure you want and e-cig that big (and heavy) first...just a thought

hi mate,

unfortunately suppliers are very unlikely to create a discount code that will apply to those type of devices as they hardly make any profit from them. things like the AdapteveR, copper, silver bullet etc are normally made by one person in their garage rather than mass produced from a factory. so once the creator has covered the cost of materials etc then added on his labour costs it leaves very little for a supplier to be able to offer a discount and still make a profit.

i think over time the more popular ones will move to being mass produced though. if not by the creator then by a chinese manufacturer where copyright laws are lapse.

i think you would be happy with a silver bullet.........it definitely ticks all your boxes.  ;D

The 14500 battery (rated at 900mAh)  lasts me a day and I never have the thing (not the battery!) out of my gob!  So if you want something at 3.7V - any mod with the 14500 battery should do.  One of the cheapest options is Garry's AA Box Mod (?15ish) - just be careful to get the correct 14500 battery as some are too big!!

I used to smoke 40-50 roll ups per day and I vape more than I smoked!!  So I do not think there is a need to buy a big (and expensive) mod that takes the 18650s (2400mAh)  :)

yeah, the 2400mAh batts last me a good 2 days!  :D

I agree, if you're only getting through 2 1/2 intellicig batteries per day, 900mAh should suit you plenty.  :)

Whichever you choose, having a USB passthrough will dramatically extend the battery life, particularly if you spend as much time in front of a computer as I do. I have a Tornado, several Titans and a Dibley box mod, but when I sit down in front of the Mac I simply unscrew the atomizer of whichever device I'm using (they're all 510 compliant) and screw it into the passthrough. My battery driven devices now only need to be charged once every two or three days.

Calith, if you're happy to have one as large and heavy as the SB, then I'd say that was your ideal device for that price. I would also say that if you're not in a real hurry to definitely watch the trade threads, here and on ECF, they come up fairly often I think.

Having said this, as others have already mentioned, I think you'd be A-OK with a smaller battery than that based on how long you say you are getting out of standard batteries so perhaps you should include devices that take a 14500 as standard in your search too.

hiya all thanks for the replys. i have been ill the last week so havnt been on the pc much. eventually decided to go for the silver bullet. it does only cost 2 weeks of cigs so figured its worth it. got to say i love it. i dont mind the weight (162g with battery if anyone is interested) and the size isnt an issue to me. only problem i have now is that it burns the intellicig liquid and i cant find a tobacco flavour like it. they all taste similar and have a weird taste. have tryed the burley from enjuice (the wierd taste was so strong i cant even vape it) got some l&b and drum from OK Smokey which isnt so bad and some marborough from ecig outlet which i am not too keen on. am just vaping cappuccino gusto for the moment.

Hi Calith,
What voltage are you using when you say it burns the intellicig juice,ive found that at 6volts you can get a burnt taste,but ive started using 901 high voltage atomisers at 6volts and they are fantastic,there from cloud9vaping,no burnt tastes just pure flavour,at 3,7 volts ive had no issue with a burning taste unless my cart has started running dry.
i hope this helps,any more info you need, i will be happy to help.
thanks
glenn :)

am using a 3.7v battery. the intellicig juice is i think made for slightly lower voltage. its only a slight burning but you can deffinatly taste it.
