Vaporesso Revenger X vs the Polar
After careful study I decided to get the Vaporesso Revenger X, but now I am reconsidering.  I'm liking the [font=Calibri, sans-serif]Vaporesso Polar, the voltage mode seems like something I would use.  Anyone have experience with Variable voltage devices, is the feature as useful as I imagine?[/font]

Variable voltage is easier and cheaper to implement than variable power.

However, what you are changing by changing the voltage is the power output. I think few mods implement variable voltage these days.

It works, but it isn't actually any more useful than variable power.

As it's all tied together with Ohm's Law and Watt's Law, voltage adjustment modifies the output power. Most mods moved to Power adjusting from Voltage adjusting some time ago, because of Don's comments and because 'power' is easier for the typical end user to comprehend. Here's a handy little converter you can use to see the power when you adjust the voltage:

Basically, with Ohm's Law as you adjust the voltage, the amps also change, giving you the basis for power output (coupled with the fixed resistance). And since most disposable coils come with a recommended power range rather than recommended voltage range, it's useful to know what power you are getting to the coil when you adjust voltage.

RE: Vaporesso Revenger X vs the Polar
Most people vape between 3.8 and 4.2 volts and most coils are set that way too. So VV mods are fine by me. I generally start around 3.7 and work up. A very high ohm coil usually takes a little more voltage (except with Eddie) and low ohm coil often requires a little less voltage.

I've more often than not found my sweet spot with pre made coils to be easier to find with vv than variable power. Coils get listed with a fairly high range.

Now if you are true MTL vaper you will find variable power a bit more adjustable. however I started with MTL tanks on Provaris and they were VV mods.

I usually adjust wattage until I'm at or near 3.7, a vv mod just makes it easier.  I'm going with the Polar and not just for the vv, it seems to be an upgrade over the Revenger X.
