    Currently exploring the world of mech mods and there are so many choices. Where's a good place to start?
    I own an rx200 and iStick100w but i only use tc mode with packet coils, so im looking for a nice mech box mod to complete my kit.
    Oh, and the bigger the better!

    I own a few but nothing massive. One thing to definitely get your head around with mechs is ohms law and battery safety.

    Sorry if I appeared condescending as that was not my intention and I had to rush when I posted.

    As mentioned I have a few mechs but only single 18650 or telescoping type ones so nothing with massive capabilities.

    Out of the ones I own I personally prefer the Smok Magneto as it seems to have a reasonably safe locking mechanism on the fire button.
    I decided to buy a few ages ago in case of vapeaggedon but quite honestly prefer the safety features of a VW device.

    My reasoning was the obvious one in that there's a lot less that can go wrong (other than safety) with a mechanical and I assume batteries will always be sold regardless.

    I certainly can't give you any words of wisdom but I'm sure others will step in with some better suggestions.

    depends what you are looking for

    -for performance, look for precious metal contacts [copper, silver]
    -others choose based on things like light button throw, and locking mechanism
    -authentic, or clone?
    -budget?

    for budget mod, the coppervape squonker is well regarded around the traps

    but need more criteria

    Mate please do not get offended by my comments.
    I would have at least 12 mech mods that no longer see the light of day. :shrug:
    I will only ever use one again if all my regulated mods go arse up :sillygrin:
    I just feel the regulated mods are so much safer and more adaptable . But that is just my opinion.

    If you do start using a mech , please ensure you know ohms law etc
    Make sure the mod you choose will lock the fire button firmly . Trust me on this they get bloody hot firing in your pocket.:mad:
    Stay away from hybrids till you know every thing you can about the dangers they can bring to the game .
    Always check and double check your coils and resistance .
    Make sure the mod has adequate ventilation .
    Only ever use recommended batteries .
    Clean your mech mod regularly ,inside and out (it helps with conductivety)
    A good starter mech is the Astro . (which along with the Gus mods were my favs.):h:
    Enjoy your journey safely mate !:thumbup:

    Dont really have specific criteria other than i like big box mods as i have rather big hands and find these most comfortable.
    I just want something i can use and learn about.
    I have become a vaping enthusiast in every sense of the word and want to learn as much as i can about every aspect.

    I have been watching this thread for a little now, and feel it probably time to say that if you have been solely using packet coils up to now, perhaps getting an RDA and learning coil building is a good step before biting the bullet and getting a mech?

    Im a fan of mech's for their simplicity, and own a couple now due to their "rawness".
    However, like others have stated, I rarely use them anymore (with exception to my squonkers) as regulated are easier to plug and play. more safety and less error.
    There is something deadset sexy about a copper tube mod though.

    If you end up liking the RDA coil building side of things, then getting a mech will be that much easier in terms of use :)

    I have a lush in rotation and an iJoy limitless plus on the way. I prefer to build my own coils.
