When I first got into advanced vaping back in January I knew I would eventually get into dripping and rebuildable atomizers. It took me about a month of research and watching videos before I felt ready to start building my own coils. Grimm Green was one of the first expert vapers that I started following on YouTube and as I was going through his older videos I came across his review of the Caterpillar RDA, which was what drove me to buying one.
Check out the following blog post after the video for additional thoughts not included in the video review.
Why I Bought the iStick 50w
Right now I only own the 20w iStick and the Aspire CF VV. I wanted another box mod that was more powerful and something that could fire sub-ohm atomizers.
I looked at a few other popular devices, such as the Seigeli 100w and 150w, the 70w iPV mini II, the 150w ipv3, and the ipv4 (which wasn’t out yet when I recorded my video review).
I went with the iStick 50w mostly because it’s so consumer-friendly. It has a built-in battery, has all of the safety protections I might need, and 50 watts is plenty for me right now. I’ll probably upgrade to something a little more advanced a few months down the road.
There’s a lot of bad information about battery safety online, which is understandable because battery technology is confusing! Check out this video from The Art of Vaping to learn about battery safety from a real expert. Justin Uy, a pro box modder, discusses a ton of stuff:
While cleaning all of the junk out of my home office, I found the calendar printout that I used to track my progress to quit smoking using an e-cig. I kept this calendar at my desk so that I would see it every single day.
I thought I threw my calendar away and I have always been so disappointed that I never kept a record of my progress, but I’ve found it!
