Throathit Twin 18650 Variable Mod (Quick Review)

I received my Throathit Twin 18650 variable mod this morning from Throathit on UKvapers http://ukvapers.com/topic/4828-throa...-variable-mod/

I knew it was good from researching it and looking at reviews but seriously this is an unbelievable piece of kit and I would recommend it to anyone. It feels so solid to hold and you can tell it was made with a lot of love.

It gives between 3V and 5.8V using the dial knob on top. The performance is excellent and it gives the voltage reading under load while vaping with the button pushed in, you just need to look down on the meter as you are vaping to see the indicator.

I've already tried it with a 1.5 ohm dual coil carto with tank at 4v with tobacco flavoured e-liquid and the throathit vapour and flavour are all great. I also tried it with a 3.0hm boge and a nice vanila/chocolate e-liquid at 4.5V with tank and it just performs brilliantly, the most satisfaction I've got since I started vaping.

It comes with 2 AW IMR 18650 batterys inside the bombproof case and just needs to be plugged in like a mobile phone to be charged. Going on other reviews I'm sure it will only need to be charged every 2 or 3 days and it can be used while in charging mode also.

I'm not going to say anything about the safety features as its all in the link above if anyone wants to know other than it does have a lot of protection built into it.

Here's a picture of it, I asked Throathit to change the usual red button to black and I also got him to relocate the 510 connection so I'd be able to use a tank on it.

yeah, i pretty much constantly have 1 battery on charge for the LT and while it's not that big an issue it is kind of annoying. although now that I have the rda and i'm making low ohm coils, I can drop the LT voltage down to under 4v and the battery life is improving. vaping boge 3ohm's at 5v I'd have just about reached the point where I want to change batteries when the green light on my charger would pop on, since I have the rda and am dropping voltages a bit I've been able to just unplug the charger when it goes green and leave it there for a few hours before I need to change.

also, i asked for a gunmetal finish on the throathit.. someone on the ukvapers thread put up a pic of theirs done gunmetal and it looks the ****ing business

I seen that gunmetal one alright its a beauty it will be the business with your rta/rda. He also gives the option of posting him the spray of any colour u like and he will spray it.

No messing around with you anyway.

Bulli a2 is well worth considering too, plenty of sites to read up on both of them.
pros and cons to each of them.

jesus, i was expecting a big backlog.. he said he could have mine finished by the end of the week and shipped out to be by monday at the latest

105 sterling inc fast shipping to Ireland (a tenner extra for the gunmetal point job). it means I'll have to skip one of my dentist appointments in the coming weeks but new toys are always awesome.

Guys, for years now new technology has usually meant devices getting smaller, but not in this case. It may work very well, but looks ridiculous IMO It's like one of old brick mobile phones

nah, no car charger but the gunmetal paint is an extra tenner so it all works out the same as yours that way I guess

guess Ill have to get some 1.5ohm dual coils to try them out properly at a high voltage

yeah but the lavatube/provaris are also pretty damn big to be taking out and about

this at least, while being pretty big looking will last for 1.5-2 days on a charge with heavy use which is just incredible when you're used to recharging the lavatube batts every 5-6 hours

Personally i go for performance and safety before looks and this performs and is extremely safe, its probably one of the safest mods built. It is also only the same size as a 20 box of cigarettes so couldnt look any more ridiculous than we all did for years with ciggies. But honestly I love the look of this mod as well and at least it doesn,t look like a vibrator like some other shiny mods, its like eliquid everyone has different taste :-)

that was always my fear about getting a provari.. the obvious dildo jokes that were sure to come in the pub

at least now that I have a multimeter and will soon have the throathit, I wont need to get a provari

so in a very important way, I'm saving money
