Eleaf Stigma
I want to know how the advanced vaping community views Eleaf products.
I have been using Eleaf since near their inception. I started with the first iStick back in the tanks days when the Nautilis was ground-breaking with its bvc. Then moved to the iStick 50w when sub-tanks took the market by storm. I also used the 50w when i got my first rda and started dripping. Then the 100w iStick released and it was no debate what i would be rocking out next.
Personally i love the power for the money. And i have never had any defects or issues with anything Eleaf. However i am getting the vibe that most builders think that Eleaf products are below them. More 'noob vaping' devices than anything. Am i right or wrong? What do you guys think?

RE: Eleaf Stigma
I think the “builders” you’re referring to are the hardcore enthusiasts, people who spend a lot of time and money for an intensely customizable experience (mechanical mods) which Eleaf doesn’t readily cater to with their largely “out the box” functionality. Then there are people like me and you (I’m assuming) for whom a mod is basically an e-lighter for all intents and purposes. I have the 50W and the TC 40W and love them both; they both serve their exact purpose without my having to tinker with the guts, external batteries, etc.; I don’t “need” anything else. So, to each his/her own; I think Eleaf offers fine products that perform exactly as expected even if some rabid enthusiasts might see them as “For Dummies” junk.

There's no ‘I’ in ‘TEAM.’ There’s no ‘U’ either. It doesn’t appear the TEAM needs us, so let’s go grab a beer!Drinks

RE: Eleaf Stigma
Haha right. I have never been one to hang out in the vape shop for hours clouding up the place. My local vendor calls those guys 'hipsters.' Like most i started to stop smoking. But i did get pulled into coil building and such. So we are walking the line i suppose.

RE: Eleaf Stigma
As with most things, there are levels of involvement and it’s up to each individual to determine how deep into the rabbit hole they want to go. For me, it’s all about flavors; I’m content to run the carpet threadbare trying new flavors with my idiot-proof Eleafs in hand. If Johnny B. Vapin wants to scoff at me while puffing away on a mod he built from a recycled car battery, then more power (literally and figuratively) to him.

RE: Eleaf Stigma
You are a mouth to lung vapor with a GS air. No problem. But honestly I can do the same with my Triton 2 (1.8 coil) by restricting the air flow a bit and also MTL. Some eleaf products are not bad. Others are really not made well. The Istick 100 watt is like a disposable mod. Terrible button rattle, poor chip set. It has nothing to do with being a new vapor or an advanced vapor.

It comes down to whether or not you trust the brand. Opinions will differ. I happen to prefer Aspire product. That's just me though.

RE: Eleaf Stigma
Hi - I have quite a few Isticks - 20W; 30W and 40WTC's - never had a bit of trouble with any and some are quite old now and still charging well. Now Eleaf have surpassed themselves with the GS tanks and the 1.5 ohm coil - a MTL vapers dream ( in Whiskey's picture ) - there is only a stigma if you don't have these products.[Image: smile.gif]

RE: Eleaf Stigma
I wasn't even aware they had a stigma!? Never had any of their boxes, I've had their rta's though. The Lemo, Lemo drop and Lemo 2 were all excellent tanks. When did they get a stigma??

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!
