Was this a deal or just a mess?
I was scouring Ebay to find cheap ego twists and stuff to give away and came across this:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/EGO-TWIST-Electronic-Vaporizer-E-Vapor-Cigarette-650MAH-MORE-/151276496805?nma=true&si=2g1OcVJI7EUzAYlkchKYqL8nMAI%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

I can't even tell what it all is for sure.  3 twists, 2 mods, 3 chargers and a pile of pieces.  It was $45 with free shipping and it all supposedly works like new.  I've got extra 14500 batteries for the one mod, and I think the other one will take 18650's but not sure.  I don't need any of the chargers.  It should be fun.  I have Kanthal and wick on the way and it looks like there's a lot of maybe rebuildable tank parts there.   Lets see if I stole the photo off the listing right.

RE: Was this a deal or just a mess?
The chargers look like junk, best recycled. The cells are probably junk, but might not be. There is what appears to be a Lavatube V1 VV mod and something that might be a Vamo. There are a lot of drip tips. Probably worth $45 but I'd not bite personally. There are Xtar spacers, but none of the chargers appear to be Xtars. Looks like the mods have been used with 16340 cells (Forget it). The two bigger mods ought to take 18650s but might not.

After more research it's a couple of $50 mods, one takes 18650 or the little blue junk batteries.  The other is 14500.  A lot of it is cartomizer, carto-tank, and carto punches?  I didn't even know such a thing existed.  I bought it for the 3 twist batteries, the ego charger, and the 3 cases to give away.  That's almost worth $45 to me.  The mods and junkpile is a bonus to play with.  I'll probably give away the chargers and carto modding stuff.  Being a flashaholic I have lots of 14500 and 18650 batteries and chargers already.  The drip tips, and mods will be like free for me to play with.   I'm an EVOD fan so the carto tank thing looks painful.  All in all I'm glad I got it.  It was a just listed Buy it Now for $45.  I posted a pic of it on ECF and they say it's worth $45 as noob fun factor alone, and I agree.

RE: Was this a deal or just a mess?
I wouldn't say you got hurt any on the deal. The MVS is a re-branded Early VAMO probably also by Rider they made about half of the early ones. The punches for cartos were from when cartos didn't come Pre-punched, Maybe they still don't, I don't know never my thing. The early "tanks" were just homemade things you stuck a cartomizer in with a hole punched in the side of it so it would fill itself. I have pretty much always been a dripper. 

By the way I traded a similar MOD to that MVS to Pulsar for a flashlight over a year ago. They were about $50 at the time. It's a good enough MOD just no going with lower omh builds or dual coils really. Stick with a single coil build around 2 to 2.5 ohms and it will vape pretty well. 

As for the chargers I would just test the batteries as they come off of them and keep an eye on them, they might be fine. 

I think you did pretty good all and all. 

If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?

I sold it for a XinTD X3 Spiteful lol

At the time I only used dual coil cartos at 2.0 ohms, so it seemed anything over 4v was the same, and my 6v mech mod hit harder

Not a bad lot for the price, since you have use for at least some of it

I agree, I think it was a good price all things considered
