The Smok Rigel with two Samsung 30Q's outlasts the Urus with one Molicell M50A by one day.

A smaller, lighter VW mod with a similar shape as the Rigel is the Vaptio Capt'n for half the price but good luck finding one these days.

I second the Urus with the molicel. Dont have one but have one in my cart since ages. Or a bb or any other rebuildable aio with a 30q which is very pocket friendly. But then i'm going on the single 18650 road again.
We can't agree on everything.

@44Magnum: Is the Obelisk really THAT light?! FT's listing has it at 110 grams, which seems too low for a mostly metal mod. If so, that's probably a good choice for medium weight, durability, AND GeekVape's usual good assembly/fit& finish.

I was going to post the Geekvape Obelisk too. Really small, compact mod. They do advertise it as the smallest dual battery mod around but I'm sure there was a review that proved there was another mod slightly smaller. But it's a great mod. Just to add, if you're in UK you'll pick one up for £30ish. The Smok Rigel too that DJ mentioned is a great wee mod. And like I saw Carrion mention, I've bought 3 or 4 Smok mods this year and every one has been good

If you are liking the Pumas, have a look at the Trip while you are there. Its 90grams. Mine just arrived so I cant say much about it, but size and weight is great. It is also the Aerometal. 5-200 watts, dual 18650..

The "suitcase" mod! Looks just like my old, trusty Samsonite travel case.

The ridges on it make it feel quite secure in your hand. Magnetised battery door, and so far so good. I think price wise it should be of interest too. Absolutely it looks like a small suitcase lol...

While I love the Rigel size/shape/feel, it will fail on you. The first, I took golfing and simply the jostling of being in the cart killed it... wouldn't turn on. I went through the RMA process and decided to keep this one at home, but again, with just minor bumping and such, it just wouldn't turn on one day. Stay away from Smok.

Instead I went to the Puma... and while not super pretty, it's not as ugly in person as the photos might indicate. I've beaten it up pretty good and it's still crankin' away.

Well, one bad mod doesn't spoil a whole batch. There are mistakes made on EVERY high-volume assembly line. Many users report (including me) perfect function from Smok or Wotofo products (made by the same manufacturer, along with a couple much smaller mod brands)

Most likely a simple fix, such as no battery connection/looseness in the battery bay, or poor 510 soldering....one good drop could cause either one to become a critical issue.
