Best Vape Gear of 2019
Hi - The year is nearly over and it has been a pretty good year for vape stuff - both DTL and MTL.
Being MTL here are my choices for the year.

Best Squonk RDA - Holic.
Best Dripper RDA - Pixie.
Best Squonk mod - Dovpo Topside - all versions.
Best Mod - Smoant Cylon.
For two other categories namely best RTA and best RDTA I have no experience, nor do I have any as far as tanks are concerned.
Your choices please.

Best (MTL) RTA Vapefly Galaxies MTL starter kit.
Agreed on the squonk mod but the RSQ is still an excellent mod.
Best (MTL) RDTA Vapefly Galaxies
Best (MTL) RTA Millenium - I have the Ulton clone which is very good.
Best pod - Smoant Pasito. There are loads of others but IMO it is the best.

RE: Best Vape Gear of 2019
I can only report the things I've been using the overwhelming majority of 2019... Topside Dual and Wotofo Profile. Good enough for a year straight (and beyond), so that's it for me.

The best gear is always what you've used most.

Regardless of what others say.

The best is what is working for you...

But vehemently agreed on the Topside...

RE: Best Vape Gear of 2019
Interesting that the topside made everyone's list. Also notable that mechs were not mentioned ... and there have been a few new excellent mechs, btw. And some great new drippers. I have the Asgard 25 on my Topside and love it. Now SQ came out with a top fill too but it is triple the price of the Dovpo so for me why bother. It does hit great for a mech but you can get more power out of the Topside .


Both Don and I like the Pasito - great prebuilt coils and great RBA deck (which is by far cheaper). Good battery life too. Easy to fill.

RE: Best Vape Gear of 2019
I think that mechs are very much a niche thing these days. And I, for one, am happy about that. Irresponsible and outright stupid use of mech mods has caused a lot of harm to both vapers and vaping. "Hybrid" mods doubly so. If they are sensibly designed they aren't a problem. Thing is most aren't and risk hard shorting cells. Which tends to have negative consequences.

When I started mech mods were pretty much all that was available without spending serious amounts of money. Now the mechs are more likely to cost serious money...

RE: Best Vape Gear of 2019
Hi Guys - thanks for the response - I must have a look at the Pasito. I found it very hard to pick the RDA's to be honest. The Galaxies and the Ammit are right up there with the others - MTL vapers have had a really good year.

I think the power that regulated mods can deliver is what steers people away from mechs , that and the fact the only safety measure is the users competence .
