well my SVD is in the mail as well, but I can still recommend you some delicious things for your eliquid. I own a vivi nova and an iclear 30, my evod is also in the mail. So I would deff recommend these, Great vapor production, good quality, easy to rebuild.

Tanks and stuff are good, but Atomizers gets the best flavor. Dripping atomizer or a Genesis style atomizer/tanks are awesome.

This is the other decision I need to make when I get a Mod, cart, clear or atty?

Which is easier for a newbie, and which involves the least amount of DIY?

Totally unrelated but every time I try and type 'noob' my spellchecker wants to change it to, well, ahem, something else. I think my spellchecker is possessed! ;)

There are a few factors involved in answering this question… personal preference and tastes, how often you change juices, if you mind dripping, how easy you want your vape to be, the amount of DIY involved, etc.

1. Can you taste the filler in cartomizers? If not, then cartos and carto tanks would work well for you, especially if you do not change flavors that often. You can buy pre-filled carts or blanks to put your own juice into.

2. Clearomizers and tank systems are probably the easiest devices to use after pre-filled cartos and they give you really great flavor and vapor production… you just unscrew the top or bottom part of the device and fill w/ your favorite juice and vape on. Then clean it every once and a while and change out the atomizer heads every few weeks or so. These are easy to clean and cheap enough to buy a bunch in case you do change flavors a lot

3. Rebuildables – the most flavorful but also the most DIY involved normally if you want to build everything yourself. However, you don't have to build the coils yourself. You can buy replacement coils w/ NR leads, you can cannibalize the coil and wick setup from something else's replacement heads, etc. As long as you can unscrew the positive and negative posts, put the coil's leads into the small holes in the posts and then screw down the pos. and neg. posts… you are good to go. Laugh

**Genesis style rebuildables – The most DIY b/c you pretty much have to build the coil yourself, and normally make your wick w/ SS mesh but I hear it is very worth it in the long run, if you build things correctly. Laugh Lots of trial and error until you get it right…I'm sure.

Generally these days when somebody says 'atty' they're talking about a dripping atomizer. Brad hit it mostly dead on with ranking of flavor. I'd rank flavor something like this from worst to best.

Cartomizers
Clearomizers
Standard dripping atomizer
Dripping rebuildable atomizers (silica based)
Genesis style atomizers (SS mesh wick)
High end dripping atomizers (like the HH.357)

Between the HH.357 (which I just got today) and SS mesh wick setups it's a tough call. I think the HH.357 gives a cleaner flavor but the SS mesh setups give more flavor. It's hard to describe. As far as ease of use both cartomizers and clearomizers require head/carto replacement, tank cleaning, head/carto cleaning etc. Dripping atomizers are easy to maintain but you have to drip a few drops, take a few vapes, rinse and repeat. Rebuildable drippers and genesis style setups are as low maintenance as anything else once you get a wick and coil installed. But they do require that extra effort to get set up with a wick and coil and how well they function is going to be almost entirely dependent on the quality of the coil you build. So a rebuildable could be leagues ahead or behind something else on the list depending on how good you are at building wick and coil configurations.

As far as flavor goes, a good dripping atty is going to give you the best flavor, but dripping is not always practical as you have to keep a bottle of juice (s) with you. Tanks and clearomizers are good for on the go, since you can fill it and for me anyway it will last me all day without the worry of carrying a bottle of juice with me. Then you have top and bottom coil devices, both will give you different vapes. Top coil vapes are much more of a warmer, moister vape and bottom coil is more of a cooler, dryer vape. Not all juices are going to taste the same in different devices, not to mention some juices were actually made for carto use. This is where some experimentation has to happen until you find exactly what you like.

Yeah, I gotta say dripping holds no interest for me personally.

I used to think the same way, but dripping has it's place and it is a great way to test flavors when you make them or buy them. I like to drip when I am at home in front of the tv, but it isn't practical for driving or anything. But it is the best way to taste pure ejuice flavor.

yeah, i remember when i thought i would never really be into dripping… now it's mainly what I do. Laugh The taste is phenomenal and you gets nice clouds of vapor. Certain juices really shine when you drip and the intensity of the juice is scaled up a bit, plus subtle flavors comes out a bit more and everything.

The HH.357 was a game changer for me as far as dripping. I still think you get more flavor from genny's but they're also fidgety to deal with. You also can't switch from juice to juice to juice, you're pretty much stuck with 1 flavor until you clean and refill. My first vape from it was Monster from Mt Baker which I'm very familiar with and it was amazing. You could tell from the very first puff it was a step or two above standard dripping attys. Plus I just recently started mixing my own juices and the HH.357 is -perfect- for tasting my 2-3ml test batches. I vape about .5ml straight off then let it steep for a few days then try again, rinse and repeat. All I have to do to get rid of most or all of the last flavor is run some straight PG or straight PG/VG blend through it and done. I'm sure a quick rinse would work too.

Awesome! I agree the HH357 is certainly for me the best atty I have ever used and it is well worth the $22 price tag.

Yeah the 357's are 22 bucks if the kind you want is in stock or 25 bucks custom ordered but I think it'll be well worth it. Grim Green has a video where he takes one apart to have a look. It was 11 months old and still working fine but he didn't want to use it because he dropped it in a toilet (that had urine in it). 11 months is impressive, really if I get 5 or 6 months out of mine I'll feel I got more than my monies worth.
