Another vote for the Aegis Max if you are a high wattage vaper.

I have one of those as well but I only vape at 23w so the Solo is better suited for me but they both can be thrown about, dropped, etc and just keep on ticking.

Are the 21700s good at repeated 70W use? That is what OP wants. I am asking because I don't know. I don't own any 21700 mods. No point in them for me unless it is a dual,(I am at to high a wattage for single) and that is a bit large and heavy, when dual 18650's work great and are smaller.

At 70 Watts you would probably have range anxiety with a single 21700 mod. They are definitely capable of providing 70 Watts but you're going to need to carry batteries, so a dual 18650 mod would be better.

In the end, I don't personally feel a 21700 mod is necessary.

Only reason I chose them, for more power was because the design of most were rounder and easier to slip inside trouser pockets for me. I find duals a bit big for my hands but perhaps for men, not so.

For longevity I would stick with a dual batt mod and carry an extra set if absolutely necessary but to each their own.

I have 4 (Molicel IIRC) 18650s that still work fairly well. Not looking to buy more batteries ATM. Just looking for a cheap dual 18650. I can have this Manto as backup. Honestly shocked at how well it has done for $18 USD shipped! lol

I cant stand the way the Aegis duals look. Any other rugged ones out there?

I might "splurge" (LOL) and buy a SKU 9741468

Any good DL pods that can handle 70 vg?

Cheers :)

I'm generally not a fan of SMOK but SKU 9730464 is small and light and has stood up well to a bit of punishment. It can also be found cheaper elsewhere.

The rigel is on sale now, around 29$. Also another plus is the battery door.
We can't agree on everything.

"I cant stand the way the Aegis duals look. Any other rugged ones out there?"

Geekvape Aegis X 200W Box Mod, very different look from the original. Looks wise I personally like the original look better than this one but to each there own. It's supposed to be as rugged as the original. $35.80

Wotofo MDura Pro 230W Mod, Wotofo's answer to the Aegis series of rugged mods. $35.71

Sigelei Humvee 215W Box Mod 41.16, not sure how rugged it is. I don't see any IP67 written up in the specs I am looking at. I find this one very ugly, but it's not going to be my mod.

SMOK MAG P3 Box Mod 230W, water proof dust proof shock proof, 46.15

IJOY Captain 2 180W TC Box Mod 40.12

I think that might be it for "rugged", but I very likely could have missed something.

"Honestly shocked at how well it has done for $18 USD shipped! lol"

The days of having to spend a decent amount for something good seem to be a thing of the past. There are literally tons of good options out there for a dual 18650 mod now. If you want the most control you can go up to a DNA board, but it's allot more than anyone really needs.

"I might "splurge" (LOL) and buy"

So far I have really liked the Geekvape chips, so that looks like a great option. Very clean and minimal looking compared to allot of what is out there. I think it is a nice.

"Any good DL pods that can handle 70 vg?"

So are you actually looking for a "pod" style? Or a subtank style? Does it have to be one or the other for any reason? Also are you looking to rebuild at all?

It would be hard for me to help with pod style or subtanks because I don't use them, only rebuildables. From what I hear though the majority of them are really good these days. My only real recommendation would be go with one from a big company so there are allot of coils out on the market for them. These things are obsolete as soon as you can't find coils any more. Some tanks stood the test of time, the majority didn't and of coarse some are cross compatible with other coils. I can't really help you with that headache though.

The 70 VG part should be easy though as that seems to be the standard in commercial eliquid these days, unless it is salt nic, even with salt nic though some commercial liquid companies still use 70.

Rigel - Not bad

Geekvape Aegis X 200W - Much better than the old ones. Thanks for all the options.


Was just asking about the pods off hand. Kinda want to buy one just to buy one, heh.

No problem, hope you find something you enjoy.

"Was just asking about the pods off hand. Kinda want to buy one just to buy one, heh."

I totally get that, I regularly convince myself that I want something in single coil even though I never end up using it very much. Trying to make it work now with a 12MG instead of my usual 6MG, but feel like I might need 14 or 15, and that is never available in commercial liquids. I do some DIY, but it's not really anything I care to work on much.

"Cheap" not very clear. You mean under $40? Under $30?

Cheap dual 18650? Smok Rigel looks cheapest, about price of cheap single 18650 mod. But Smok last 6-12 month usually. If lucky. Something usually break to make mod not usabl. Try I guess.
