    I think one in Gold would look great with a Gold Tank.

    I have to say this because it's been bothering me a bit. The Charon is starting to get some traction with YouTube reviewers and I've seen it reviewed a lot lately. I'm really taken aback by the fact that most of them are not mentioning what a capable TC mod this device is. It's almost like they are avoiding it on purpose. I just find this lack of coverage on the mod very curious.

    In criticism, I will be bold, and as sternly, absolutely just with friend and foe. From this purpose nothing shall turn me.

    I think 90%+ are either mostly or entirely clueless when it comes to understanding TC. I'd rather they leave it out than spout BS. So I guess that's a good thing? Need more high quality reviewers.

    I agree, but one reviewer who admittedly does not vape in TC actually said the Charon TC was wonky. I was suprised because he's usually on point.

    DJLsb Vapes review is up. Quick summary: Good build but the nice 510 plate wasn't screwed tightly enough leading it to rotate around some. Runs hot (both temp and power) with usable, even "smooth" TC.

    I watched that as I am interested in the Mod but I think I will wait for version 2 and one thing I think is ugly is that silver button on the Bronze and Gold one, I think with matching buttons would look a lot better.

    Deuces' review is plenty good enough for me. I don't have to waste my precious data on this guy.

    I found it helpful to see the bench numbers and teardown.

    I understand completely. I used to like to see stuff like that but my circumstances being what they are now, I just want to know if it works like it's supposed to. There's too many of these 'reviewers' that either haven't used the gear enough to know anything about it, or are hung up on silly crap like "it comes in a really nice box".

    I might check out Daniel sometime if there's something I want to see and neither Deuces or Anthony have a review for it. These are my "go-to" guys for anything vape related I want to get.

    Hey Mike, thanks for the kind words. They are greatly appreciated. Feedback like that is a big reason why I enjoy doing reviews. Glad you enjoy them and I truly appreciate yours and everyone else's support here.

    Jack, you and Anthony are two of the people that prompted me to get the G2 while I could. Now that I got that on the way, I gotta figure out how I can get a Battlestar and a Charon. Of course I gotta have attys for 'em too. :)

    Yeah, you're a coupla enablers alright. :D

    Tbh I love the button on my silver. It's huge, clicky, responsive, and really easy to find.

    I think on the silver one the button looks great its just the gold and Bronze one I guess I like to Match stuff on my Narrowest Bronze it has black buttons and I like that. The Black Charon looks good. To.

    Just spoke to my contact at Smoant. They will not be releasing the stickers separately. They'll all be available but you gotta buy the whole mod.

    Hi Jack
    Thinking of getting the Chaton. However, I saw a review on YouTube by Jai Haze. He showed how the 510 was terrible. All his atties didn't fit it properly and were wiggling from side to side on it. Did you encounter this problem?

    Nope, not at all. In fact I'll say that it has one of the better 510's available at its price point.

    I didn't have any wiggle either it's only when the tank isn't screwed all the way on and I tested it and it performed great as well.

    The two of you do great reviews. I started out watching varying reviews on utube but now I always look first to see if you guys did one.

    Good job, guys.

    Hey Deucesjack, have you had hands on the updated Smoant Charon with the potentiometer? Was debating between that one and the standard Smoant Charon.

    That's a clean looking setup! I'm interested in hearing/reading more of your thoughts on this one, specifically if you only had to choose one, which would you go with (adjustable wattage vs adjustable voltage).

    Tough call cause they cater to 2 different types of vapers. If you're a Hexohm type of vaper you'll love the Variable. If you're a TC vaper you'll love the TC 218.

    This is the review for the TC one. I'll review the Variable Wattage one but it won't be here. I'll post a link.

    This is helpful. Thank you. The Hexohm v3.0 is my favorite mod to use.

    Thank you so very much for your review, I am thinking that I Will be getting me one if the online store I have found it on for a decent price and have a bunch of reward points and a $10.00 off coupon code also, so if they still have it when I get my disability check by July the 19th, then I AM going to pull the trigger on it !!!
