I thought long and hard about whether I could be bothered to write anything about this mod. Turns out I could :) So, this isn't a review but simply a personal comparison between the Pulse 1 (a mod I have used almost exclusively since it launched) and the new (mine just arrived today) Pulse 2. No videos, no pictures and no reivew. If you want those then others have done that already. SIZE, SHAPE, WEIGHT, FEEL ETC.. The Pulse 2 is essentially the same as the Pulse 1, sure there are some minor tweaks here and there but nothing significant enough to suggest one is better than the other. I do however like the smoother edges and the larger squonk hole to put my finger in. BUTTONS, COVERS, SCREEN. Both devices are great in these respects. Well fitting covers, nice clicky buttons and nice clear screen. The Pulse 2 Screen is larger and significantly brighter even at the default 50% brightness. MENUS, FEATURES ETC.. The Pulse 2 does have some differences in the menus and features, not one of them offers (me at least) anything beyond a passing curiousity. FILLING SYSTEM The new bottle with its bottom filling method is actually rather good. I used the Vandy Vape 50ml 510 bottle to fill my Pulse 1 and thought I would continue to do so. At this point, after just one day, I am not sure and could end up using the bottom fill. Regardless the new fill concept is exceelnt and anyone without a 510 bottle is going to love it compared to the old bottle. The new bottle does have thicker walls making them a little harder to squeeze, the metal squonk tube makes squonking a little easier but a hard squeeze doesnt quite work as the tube in in the way. TEMPERATURE CONTROL (The main, if not only, reason I ordered this) The Pulse 1 TC was wonky (and thats being kind), it wouldn't stop dry hits reliably and would only reduce the severity of them. The Pulse 2 has excellent TC, maybe not a reliable as a YiHi or DNA chip but, it is almost spot on even with (the notoriously hard to TC) SS mesh. This alone for me has made the purchase 100% worthwhile. CONCLUSION If you have a Pulse 1 and use TC then this is a purchase certain to make you happy. I could pick at the device and find things I didn't like but that would just be being fussy as hell.... Oh go on then, given the choice I would prefer the battery icon was larger so I could see remaining charge a little better (the frankly pointless puff and time parts of the screen could go to allow this imo), I'd also prefer a choice of the new tougher walled bottle and a soft (old style) bottle. Yes I know I can use the old bottles. Otherwise its a bloody good mod, a great price and a nice upgrade from the Pulse 1.

After all the discussions and all the talk about TC not working, I can say I was quite worried when I decided to keep waiting for this device. It arrived today and I have to say I am very pleased with it. Reviewers of teh early samples had several problems, I have not. The door panels in samples were not the best fit, they were OK but not great. The one I have received has perfectly fitting panels. The overall opinion of sample reviews was that the device, overall, was of excellent build wuality and operated well within expectations. I would concur that the device is a great build quality and works fine. The one big negative from sample reviews was the temperature control. On one review there was awful hotspots under temperature control. On mine it all works great, no hotspots no over heating nothing. I would however sya that the vape was a little hot so I checked the default 316SS setting and found it was set to over 1000. I have since turned that TCR down to a more reasonable 880 and its spot on. The only negative I can find , and its really nothing if I am honest, is the squonk tube in the device has a hole that could be bigger. There is a restriction of some sort on the squonking (compared to others) that could allow faster juice feed. Not even close to a deal breaker (else I would have listed it as a con) and I am more than happy with my purchase
