    I'm looking for a good looking mod that works reliably (with good paint-job; no peeling from everyday use). So far I have these in mind, and I need help on which I should buy.

    - Voopoo Drag (Black/Azure)
    - Smok Mag (Black Prism)
    - Kaos Spectrum (Black) *I just like it cus it lights up real bright LOL*

    Feel free to suggest more stunning and realiable mods in the comments! (No high-end ones though! Can't afford any $300+ Vape)

    I LOVE resin mods, rainbow mods that aren't too much, and LED mods.

    I love my drag. I don't use it much these days though. Found my way into lower wattage vaping again. Lol

    How did the paint job hold up? I've had a voopoo drag before but noticed that the paint was slowly coming off with just my everyday use.

    It's got a couple spots here and there at the edge of the battery door and the bottom but good for the most part.

    Yep they hold up really well & works well, only the tiniest nick on the black battery door where the logo is.

    Heard more than one complaint about the build quality of the SMOK Mag. I'd skip it.

    Didn't like the Voopoo Drag because most atties 24mm and up overhang. Other than that, it's OK..

    The Sigelei Kaos Spectrum has issues with battery life, kinda, sorta... The battery life is actually close to par, but the way it displays the battery life is deceptive. It might show 1/2 full, but when attempting to vape higher wattages, it'll error out "low batteries." Most Sigelei mods do this.

    Take a look at the Tesla Punk 220. My only complaint is that the battery door is not attached.

    The Asmodus Minikin 2 is also very nice.

    I just got the SMOK I-Priv, and I'm liking it muchly, too.

    If you want straight up gorgeous, take a look at the Cartel Revenant. Other resin boxes include the Basilisk (which is a bit fragile), the SnowWolf 200R (just panels), the SMOK Majesty, the Aleader Funky 160 (just panels), and the Limitless Classic 220. There are more than that, but those are the ones I have used...

    Only thing about Funky 160 was the battery contacts. Tabs, not buttons or spring loaded, and bending them to fit batteries well w/o marring wraps was a pita. Also, you'll most likely get the green panels and would need to buy a diff color.

    So far imo, Minikin V2 or Revenant by a wide margin over smok.

    You might like Modefined Draco. You could check out a review to see what the screen has going on.

    I ended up with a voopoo drag, was wanting to get the snowwolf R but couldn't find it anywhere. I'm going to buy the uwell nunchaku soon though. :)

    @mikeybee That's cool. I know this is an older post, but I didn't see it until today. So even though I'm late, I'll throw in my 2 cents anyway. The Asmodus Minikin v2 was mentioned earlier, but I would recommend the Asmodus Lustro. The Lustro is based on the Minikin v2, which is a solid, reliable, and well performing mod. Just like the Minikin v2, the Lustro uses a touchscreen instead of traditional buttons. The Lustro is a similiar in size and shape with some aesthetic differences, and also brings the addition of an LED bar to the face of the mod. I love my Lustro and was going to recommend it. So when I read that you liked LEDs, I thought the Lustro would be perfect! I'd suggest the Lustro to anyone who's in search of a nice looking mod, a powerful mod, a mod that's reliable, or a mod that's affordable. I honestly like using my Lustro just as much as I do my G Class, and the Lustro is only 1/3rd of the price!

    My Mrs has the smok mag and she loves it, the finish is tough and immaculate so far (about 3 months of daily use with a prince tank)

    I think it's an alright piece of kit, my best friend bought one as well as his first vape and he's hooked. Most of my smoks have lasted 6-9 months but they get tough love with me so I don' see why they wouldn' go longer in nicer hands.

    I looked at them and unfortunately I do not like the design. :/ I'm planning to get a kaos spectrum in replacement of my drag, but what's holding me back are the reviews saying that it'll only last a couple days/weeks!!

    Adding my opinion. Not sure if you've considered squonking, but the Rage by Desire is one sexy mod. Very well built. I have no fear this mod will stand the test of time.

    Smoant Cylon is an excellent performer and mine looks good as new after 6 months of daily use. It can carry a topper of 30mm’s without overhang. It is a gorgeous mod and works well in tc and power modes.

    I'm looking to get a tesla punk now. How long have you had yours for and how's it durability/longetivity?

    Had mine since the day it came available stateside. I've had it in relatively regular rotation. No complaints (except the aforementioned door). Understand, though, I have a lot of mods, and I baby them. My idea of durability and yours might be greatly different. That said, it's a brick (in a good way).

    In my opinion, the Rage is one of the best performing and best looking squonk mods! It's dual battery, so you can run dual coil builds with ease and you'll get great battery life out of single coil builds. If you've considered buying a squonk mod, the Rage is your best choice.

    That's a great looking mod! With all the recent price drops on the Cylon, I've been considering it

    I’ve been considering the rage. I need another squonk mod and I love the looks of the rage. That blackwash color would match my blackwash knives so it’s hard to resist. I’m just looking to find a rage a little cheaper. I may just wait for a sale to get one cheaper.

    Smoant Charon TC 218 is a tough mod. I have a couple that have been dropped on concrete over the past year and they stand up to the punishment.
    101 Vape has them for $30 now for the copper and gold color.
    The coppers are cool looking

    It's been on sale a few different times at recoilrda.com. I think it was around $75 the last time I saw the Rage on sale at that site. But, at that price you also received a Recoil RDA or Recoil Rebel RDA(customer's choice). That's an incredible deal if someone was already planning to buy a Rage and eitone one of those RDAs

    Awesome, thanks for the tip. Have you ordered from recoilrda? I never heard of them so just wondering if they are a reliable vendor.

    I've never ordered from there, but I know it's reliable as it's GrimmGreen's site. If you haven't heard of him, he's a big YouTube reviewer and designer of the Recoil RDA. He's been doing vape reviews there longer than anyone else who's currently doing them (I think since 2010 or earlier).
    EDIT - Also, he's friends with the guy who designed the Rage mod

    I will buy the Rage soon, but I've had a Cylon for months and I love it. It looks and feels like a $100+ mod. I just use my Wismec RX GEN3 more because it uses 3 18650s ;) .
