Big Grin Alien lasted only 6 months, Predator vs Fuchai Plus which is a better replacement?
Soooo, I'm unexpectedly in the market for a new mod.  I was going along good with the Smok Alien and all of a sudden I get an "Ohm too low" message. I see a lot of identical complaints but none of the suggested fixes worked in my case, so I'm gonna put it in the shop; but I'm now looking for something more durable.

Wismec Predator and Sigelei Fuchai Plus are looking nice but would either last longer and be more reliable than the Alien, based on build quality?

Segeli does have a weird reputation.  It seems they make quality products but at the same time they lie about specs.

Wismec Predator apparently has 510 pin issues.

Is there an obvious third option?

Hi Bb - these are high power mods - what power do you vape at. There are plenty lower power mods that are utterly reliable but not as ''pretty''. If it was me I would go with a Sigelei 100W - solid, totally reliable but it really depends on how you vape. Best of luck.

I love my Sigelei 150tc, I also have a smok alien. If your wanting to stay hi power I recommend the Fuchai hands down to the wismec predator. A lot of people are having 510 and software issues where it does not recognize the tank is attached. Just my .02

Did you contact Smok or per chance damage or otherwise drop the Alien? I ask because my wife and I have two of them and while I have many unsavory opinions about the Baby Beast (but mainly the replacement coils), the Aliens themselves seem rock solid in our his and her daily usage.

Of course I've probably now jinxed us and ours will crap out tomorrow.

So many better mods than a fuchai or predator. Get a DNA or Yihi chip mod from IPV or SX. Or a Hohmtech mod. I would also take an Asmodus over any Wismec or newer Sigelei.

Man, I got all excited for a minute... I thought I was being referenced to as Guru, and then I read further.

Okay, back to having my wife call me "The Guru" when I anger her with my endless stream of opinions on all topics.

You know I am never wrong. Even when I'm wrong I'm right. The Noisy 11-25 is the ONLY reliable wismec, hence my recommendation. You are the only guy the Asmosdus crapped out on. And your Princess' Asmodus works just fine. Hmmmmm.
