RE: Eleaf Stigma
Hi gently - there was a thread a while ago classing the Istick as a disposable item and also they are at the cheaper end of the market. I actually like them and have a few and so does my wife and there has never been a problem - they do what they are intended to do no one can ask for more than that - a bit of snobbery attached to it as well me thinks.

RE: Eleaf Stigma
I have to admit, I've never given the Eleaf line a second look. My local dealer sells the low-end starter kits, but not much else Eleaf. I fell in on the Joyetech eGo One end of the pool.

That being said, from a marketing standpoint, Eleaf appears to be a strong company that has an extensive line of products, and a fairly large following of consumers. This is not likely to occur over this much time, if the company's overall quality is low or if they only make disposable/junk products.

Our genre, overall, is picky and very well trained. It is unlikely that we would support a manufacturer with such low standards - especially over the long haul. There are snobs and yuppies that will run down just about anything, but fortunately they don't really drive this industry.

More power to you partner! Use what you like and don't sweat the snobs.

Aaah I see. Elaf just fill a hole in the market, as I see it. Id liken it to Ford having cheap low end fiestas and high end rs models too.

RE: Eleaf Stigma
There have been issues with them - the 50W Istick had a problem with auto firing but the main complaint was about rattly buttons. As soon as I heard about this I immediately went out and bought a couple - a 20W and a 30W and indeed the buttons do rattle - not as much as I would like but enough to get a wee tune going - I have had these for quite a while now and have got a dab hand at getting good rythms going - one in each hand and if you press the buttons a bit harder the screen lights up - I think they are really cool.
       One of these days I am going to put an atty on them and see how they vape.

RE: Eleaf Stigma
Greetings. I'm new to the forum and don't know the rules so plz bear with me. Been vaping for a year so I feel I'm still new to the to that too. Just bought my first unit that requires an 18650 battery. Eleaf TC 60. I was using my girlfriend's batts that she using for a Kanger subox nano. They worked fine in watt mode and in TC  mode. But I purchased other 18650 batts and they only work in watt mode at a low wattage. I try to do my own research and can't come to a definite conclusion. Do I need a high drain batt? Any help would be appreciated

Hi there
 Yes you will need a good battery, due to the lowest resistance it'll fire at would be a high amp draw. I'd recommend Sony vtc3&4, LG hg2- hb2- he2&4, Samsung 25r and maybe a couple more.

RE: Eleaf Stigma
In general ICR cells aren't suitable for vaping at more than low power settings (<20W)

RE: Eleaf Stigma
I just did a test. I can go to 32 watts before it craps out. My girlfriend only vapes at 25 so I think I'll just trade batts with her!
