Wow! I read the whole thread in about 3 days.... Now I want to buy a mod. Problem is that I have never owned anything like a mod. I currently have a XEO Void Vaporizer (think Ego style, but made by sie Germans, with 2 different atomizers 1 and .6 ohm). I know very little about the process of maintenance, coil building (much less all the different combinations of coil diameter, material, configuration). I just watched the video from Super X, which made a lot of the theoretical idea come into focus.
I have shied away from mods (especially RDA style) because I felt like, in my life (I have 3 school aged kids), sitting around refilling every few minutes was not going to work...then I stumbled onto this thread. IMO, there a fair bit of genius to the basic design.
So here is the challenge I put to you well seasoned vapers/squonkers. I need to know EVERYTHING I will need. I am a complete noob to mods. I want all you favorite recommendations, squonk mods that are user friendly (I am think a regulated device, so I don't hurt myself), BF RDA, coils, batteries, charger, wicking material... anything else. I have a basic idea of what to do, but NO idea where to start my journey. I am new, not only to squonking, but also to mods et al. I have been vaping since 2014, and know I like a cooler vape (relatively speaking).
I am trying not to break the bank. If need be, I can buy my equipment in stages, but that is pure torture. LOL What I get needs to be durable and not temperamental. One last thing, can you point me in the direction of basic maintenance intructions (how often do you clean, how do you when it is time to change your coils/wicks, ect.)?
TIA, for any help you have for this future USA!
