I only have the halo g6 but I know halo makes great products. I myself am interested in the triton. It looks cool.

First off, I've heard tons of great things about Halo lately… so they would be a great company to buy your ecig from…however, it really depends on what you are looking for and if the price difference or availability bothers you.
While I have heard plenty of great things about the Triton and Halo in general, for the money- you could easily get a mod w/ very large mAh replaceable batteries, 510/eGo threading, as well as VV and VW.

The Triton kit starts at $65, which is very reasonable…however the price point for many other popular mods have fallen in the past few weeks. For example, I just bought my Vamo kit from FastTech for $51…comes w/ everything you need to vape but the juice…BUT it also came w/ two vivi nova tanks (prob knock-offs, but still nice) and each tank came w/ a Stainless Steel drip tip as well. Pretty nice deal overall. I've seen other popular mods go for cheaper lately as well.

You don't need to rush into these buys like many often do, so take your time and do your due diligence in the research. Halo products use 808 threading, and the Triton is no different, however the Triton does have Vgo threading but not sure if that works w/ the eGo threaded clearos (probably does). Most things these days are either 510 threading or eGo threading. Still see some 808 and 901 stuff but it is no where close to as common. ***To be fair though, it is very easy to just get a 808 to 510/ego adapter for the Triton and it could use everything else as well.

Also, Halo must be inundated with orders b/c they are constantly out of stock as of late…which could lead to not getting exactly what you wanted (bigger mAh batt or whatnot being out of stock).

Some good PV (personal vaporizer) mods to look up and research would be: the Vamo V2, Sigelei Zmax V3, the eVic, and the Innokin iTaste MVP (box mod) or SVD (tube mod). These are some of the most popular ecig mods on the market right now (non-mechanical anyway) and are all reasonably close to the same price as the Triton. The only one not mentioned is the Provari – but only b/c it is much more expensive than the Triton… but it is still the reigning champion of mods to many people in the industry. Also worth noting is the eGo twist or eGo spinner… both are VV and not as bulky as the PV mods listed above. They also come in large mAh batts (1300mAh) so you aren't constantly charging stuff.

Hope this gives you and/or others a good starting point at which to check out a few things before making your jump into PV mods. Laugh

Brad your the man…thanks for all that info, I've got some home work to do. My only other ? Is Should i just go for the provari because money isn't really an issue for me. Or do you think its to much for me as a beginner to mods..my thought is i would rather spend more money and get something good than try to save money and get something smaller because then ill just outgrow it and end up buying the good mod in the end anyway.

All the mods have only slight differences b/t them so it's kind of up to your personal preference.

The Provari is very nice, sturdy, fits the hand pretty perfectly, etc…but it is only VV and not VW (at least I don't think they have come out w/ a VW version yet)

VV is great, yes, but VW is better IMO b/c then you can freely switch between clearos and tanks without worrying about switching your volts. You just set the watts after some tinkering to find what power range you enjoy the most, then you never have to even touch that again. W = (V * V) / R – So unlike VV, where the resistance of the coil can make you change your voltage quite a bit to get the right amount of power you like… setting the wattage allows the device to determine what Voltage is needed by checking the ohms and adjusting the volts accordingly, in order to achieve the power output (watts) you choose.

Most PV mods are pretty simple apart from their menus…which you can easily look up on youtube to see how they each function. I don't think any I listed before would be bad choices at all. They all work relatively the same and have almost the exact same features… it's really then up to you to decide which design, size, etc that you like best.

Even if I could buy whichever mod i wanted right now, I'd go w/ either my Vamo or the Zmax V3 b/c they both do VV and VW as well as allow for multiple types of battery configurations, depending on your preferences. They can both be condensed down to a smaller size for on the go convenience. They both get rave reviews online. Both are 510/ego threading.

I'd just spend some time on youtube checking out each of them to see which you like the best. IndSmo has a good few reviews on em, PBusardo has done many reviews on these as well, same w/ Grimm Green – who just did a video on the Zmax V3 telescope PV mod. .

In general though, PV mods are not that hard to understand after learning the basics and watching some vids. It is not too challenging for novices either – just had a friend buy the iTaste MVP for his first ecig and he loves it.

Don't hesitate to ask around on the forum here either… ask as many questions as you'd like and we'll try to help you out where we can. Good luck in the search for your mod. Whichever one you choose, you will likely love it after the first few vapes. A mod compared to the cig-a-likes is like a $1,000 7.1 surround sound system vs 2.1 computer speakers. Both can get the job done…one just does it better and with more style Laugh It's a definite jump that you will notice right away.

I would never suggest a Provari as a first mod. There are so many good mods out thete for less. Like Brad said; the Vamo, Lavatube, Siegeli, etc. All are solid mods and will give you a great vape!

Like everybody else is saying shop around and watch some reviews. The Provari is a nice device, it's made in the USA and constructed with good materials and excellent workmanship. It also has a high price tag for what it is. Personally the one thing I find very disappointing with it is the lack of VW mode, but some people don't even care about that. You can get something that will work great for 1/3 the price though. With MOD's like the VAMO, Sigeli ZMax and many other similar more inexpensive MOD's ultimately the electronics in them seem to be based on the same (or very similar) control chip and will work about the same from an electronics/power regulation standpoint. Evidence of that can be seen by the operating frequency and almost identical power distribution characteristics across all of them. That being said about the electronics bits a lot of your decision will fall around the physical look and design of a device. Single button operation or 3 button. Smooth seamless finish or something with some grooves and notches to add accents to the finish. Designed for only one battery configuration or several. Ultimately those types of things will be a big factor in what you end up with because there are soooo many MOD's in the 45-80ish dollar range that all function virtually the same electronically, but are radically different physically.

Ya i see what you mean with the looks of them. I actually really like the innokin svd tube style. It just looks awesome..where is a good company to purchase it from though cause you cant buy it right from the innokin website and im having trouble tracking one down.

The SVD seems like a good MOD, it's one of the many I was considering when I was shopping for a MOD. I believe it has the flush mounted connector with vent holes in the side so tanks will sit flush on top with no gap. That makes for a nice seamless look especially when you put on a "full size" tank that has the same diameter as the MOD. The telescoping is nice too since it gives you the option of using a 18490 or 18500 battery in it as well as the 18350 and 18650.

After a little more research I'm leaning more towards the vamo v2…it looks sweet and i found a kit at vapor beast for 75 bucks and ill get the vamo v2 2 tanks 2 batts and the charger and soft case and i like that its vv and vw so i can play with both settings to see what i really like. I didn't really like that for all the money they want for the provari its only vv. I don't by any means know jack about any of the vv or vw or ohms and all that good stuff but i would love to learn about it so i think I'm going to go for the vamo v2.

Good choice, as a proud Vamo owner I will say that you will NOT be disappointed. The Vamo is a solid mod and it works really really well. Got my Vamo in my hands as I type this. Make sure you keep us posted on how you like it. That is a pretty good deal with the whole kit!

There's a big difference between VV and VW. Ultimately you're trying to get a certain amount of power (watts) at the coil. How much wattage at the coil is determined by the voltage you're applying to the coil and the resistance (ohms) of the coil.

With variable voltage you're setting a certain voltage (say 4.2v) but the actual power output of the coil is determined by the resistance of the coil. For example 4.2 volts into a 3 ohm coil is 5.88 watts. That same 4.2 volts into a 1.5 ohm coil is 11.76 watts. So if you're using variable voltage you'll need to adjust it based on what the resistance of your attached coil is. If you didn't change it then you might end up with far more or far less power than you need or want. 4.2 volts into 3 ohms will not produce a lot of vapor, 4.2 volts into a 1.5 ohm coil will produce a ton of vapor (and might even fry some types of juices).

With variable wattage mode you set the amount of wattage you want to be output by your coil. The controller chip will read the resistance of the coil and provide the appropriate voltage to achieve the wattage you've set. I usually vape at 8 or 9 watts so if I set my device to 9 watts it doesn't matter what the resistance of the coil I attach to it is. The vape experience will remain static because the device is adjusting the voltage automatically.

Personally I typically prefer variable wattage because I don't have to fiddle with changing anything when I switch to a different tank, regardless of whether or not it has a far different resistance than the tank I'm removing. There are some down sides to variable wattage, but they mostly apply to RBA's where there is a chance that something might not be quite right. In those cases if the device is reading a high resistance it will end up trying to push more voltage than is actually needed (or that the coil can handle). At that point you're almost certainly going to pop your coil (almost immediately). With a newly built coil I start with VV then once it has been tested for a bit and is known to be stable I can (more or less) safely go back to VW without much fear of prematurely popping the coil.

TLDR version: I prefer variable wattage 95% of the time Cool

I had to move all these posts to a new topic, all that discussion was under the Halo G6 thread and clearly had nothing to do with the G6 Laugh

On a side note, I have been tinkering around with wattage and I have to say I am really liking wattage better then voltage. Getting much more consistent vapes with wattage, especially near the end of the battery.

Good call Steve.

The Vamo V2 is a great choice Justin. The VW is an awesome feature, it's very well built, my vapes are amazingly consistent, and you can fine tune it to how you like your vapes. I run mine kind of low so i get the nice cool vapes going on. Cool I also like that it can run in short mode when I am out of the house. Still vapes like a champ w/ the 18350 batts and is much easier to carry around. Overall, a very solid mod. Good call sir.

Well I'm sure you know my opinion at this point. I think VW is superior in almost every regard other than situations like I mentioned above. But then again some people like to fiddle more and want to check the resistance every time they put on a different tank and change the voltage manually. Personally I want to be able to just go from tank to tank and get the same vape experience without touching anything else.

As a side note when I was out grocery shopping today I had the VAMO in my pocket and those buttons can (and did) get pressed from being in your pocket. When I went to take a nice vape after walking out of the store I got a -monster- hit from the protank and was like "whooaaah what the hell was that". Checked the wattage and it had gone from 9 watts to 11.5. I will now be turning it off before I put it in my pocket.

LOL Compete, I always turn my Vamo off before I put it in my pocket just because of that Laugh

Brad I tried to move your post as I think you were typing it as I moved all the posts, but I think you must have deleted it right after I moved it. Hopefully Justin finds his post, but it just was not belonging in the G6 thread.
