size considerations
It cannot escape anyones attention, many vapers strive to have the smallest vaping rig imaginable, because "I dont notice it in my pocket".


I've never really been a fan myself, I find 18350 bottom firing mods awkward at best and bloody irritating to use at worst. I also really dislike the vaping limitations I feel when I use 18350 cells.

However, in conversation I found myself explainingy reasoning for my choices, and I found myself taking a couple of pictures for illustration purposes. I figured I'd share and see what people's own thoughts are.

So I can get more than 24 hours out of this set up, vaping around 25watts and this is all I need carry.

Thats a custom roller, with a taifun gt clone running a .45 kanthal .6ohm micro coil and a panasonic 18650 pd cell.

Or, due to the atomiser resistance I cannot fire this. But this is what I would need to carry to get the same 24hrs and not be vaping around 25watts ever....

I don't really get it. I know I can comfortably carry the roller/taifun rig, because I regularly do it, I know it'll last me more than a full days vaping, without changing anything because I regularly do it. How am I carrying more by using an 18650?

RE: size considerations
Well, I can't chop the roller and taifun down and leave it in the car or lunchbox lol.

Typically, I can have spare cells in my lunchbox at work, and a spare bottle of juice. But I have been using 18650s lately myself, because I only have two 18350s, and I have put them back in there rightfullace with the l2m  

Btw, the roller and taifun is an awesome setup. Glad I took your advice on that

RE: size considerations
Its definitely one of my favourites.

Its also not a dig at people, more a hope of debate. I can see what you mean about length, mine either goes in my utility trousers pocket or the breast pocket of my overalls. I also tend to have it easy with being in my van.

I guess my point is I feel that the down sides to an extra 30mm arw

RE: size considerations
Since 18350s seem to be incapable of providing the performance I want, the size is moot.

RE: size considerations
Funny just five minutes before finding this post I had the same convo with Johnny. I'm not a fan of the 18350 mods either I have to be honest, I'm happy to carry a little extra size and weight in the hand for extra performance.... Take that as you will Hi

Pulsar makes a good point about his reasoning behind an 18350 Mod at work which does make sense

RE: size considerations
My megalodon can be used in shorty mode I have had it for years and almost never used it that way. It was neat that it could do it but that was about it. 

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?
