    I have been vaping over a year now on regulated mods, and i really wanna try mech mods, and I'm looking for tube not hybrid and compatible with 18650 battery for a new guy into mech mods.
    budget up to 250USD

    any suggestions?


    sorry for my bad english and thanks in advance.

    The Overpowered tubes look nice. Switch is supposedly phenomenal. Also the Broadside, a little less expensive.

    First tube? I'd suggest the Broadside, or even better, the Admiral clone. They go for around $30 on eBay and less from China. Many folks say that they are likely made in the same factory as the authentic using the same materials. I cannot validate that as I do not have an authentic, however, I do have two of the clones and they are phenomenal mechs. They simply hit harder, noticeably harder, than anything else I own (well aside from multiple battery mods, of course). I personally ran a voltage drop test on my brass version and I forgot to write down what it was but it was very good. I believe it was a bit less than what AmbitionZ Vaper (YouTube reviewer) got on his test.

    I dunno man. For about $60 you can have a great mod and a Dead Rabbit. I run both of mine with Dead Rabbits and I absolutely love them. I love them so much that the second setup was purchased because I lost my first setup. Less than 24 hours after I lost it I found it, but it only took a couple of hours before the idea (the horror!) of losing it permanently became too much and I ordered the whole new setup. So I have a brass and a copper setup, both with the same coils in their attys and I can't tell a difference in how they hit, so I suggest ordering whichever you prefer. I prefer brass myself. [​IMG]

    Have to agree broadside clone is good step, it will leave you with a good budget to buy wire to build your own coils and good batteries, I would only spend that kinde of money on a mech once I’ve got the vape and setup right and understand all the safety aspects and protocol befor pressing the launch button lol I would move on to a Rig mod or a purge at a later date https://knuckleheadvapes.com this guy sell nowt but good clones or take a chance at fasttech.com who are really good just need to know what your looking for and the better quality items

    I dunno. I have an authentic Rig mod and I'm not super impressed. It hits plenty hard, but I definitely find myself reaching for the Admiral.

    Broad side is a nice starter mech. I know you said non hybrid but the dreamer is nice. Hybrids aren't much different. Just be sure to have a nice protruding 510 pin. And for clones. Not all are made the same. Some are a 1:1. Depends on the manufacturer. These guys have some really nice clones. Based in the uk. So make sure you check the currency.

    For a first tube non hybrid (good choice for beginner BTW) here's a couple I recommend looking at for quality and ease of use/maintenance -
    • The Nimbus from Vaperz Cloud, the spring is firm but I replaced it with a medium pure silver spring and makes a world of difference. It has all pure silver internal contacts https://vaperzcloud.com/collections/new-products/products/nimbus-mod
    • If you can find one I would say the original SubOhm Innovations Subzero Shorty, it's an excellent, excellent Mod.
    • The Broadside is a decent choice also.
    Those listed above a good performing, well built tubes at a good price. I wouldn't shoot my entire wad yet, get a few decent mods to dial in what you like and want. Then you can have a good foundation when you go higher end, nothings worse than blowing a lot of money on something that eventually won't work out for you ya know ;)

    I think I will go with Broadside Admiral since it's good for a new guy into mech mods and it has some safety on it with the battery.
    plus I saw some good reviews and many recommendations.

    so thanks all for the help and I'm sorry for my bad English
