So its been about 8 months since I've even touched an automatic battery. After my intro into vaping I went straight to 6v devices with boge cartomizers and thought i'd never look back. Well with the entrance of 2ML xl E2 cartos (2.5ohm) I was forced to try 3.2-3.7v vaping again just to get the convenience of vaping 1 carto for most of the day without refilling. After ptb modding my R3 e2 cartos I bought my first automatic Joye ego from cignot and I gotta say it is IMPRESSIVE. I've had a USB 650 manual ego for almost a month and somehow the automatic from cignot puts out MUCH more vapor and is just a pleasure to use. Luckily my cartos don't leak so i really have no fear of these batteries dying anytime soon and I have to say that the release of these cartos has opened the door again for 3.7v vaping.
I personally hate all atomizers (LR included) due to the hassle of dripping, you should be able to vape all day on 1-2 cartomizers and 1 battery and I feel that I've found my winning combination. This is something thats actually easier than smoking and requires less than a minute to refill at night. My only issue is that the cartomizers have to be modded in the first place, but it is well worth the 3 minutes to mod the cartomizer and I've been running the same ones for 2 weeks.
Its refreshing to only carry around 1 ego battery and a small business card sized case with 4 cartomizers with different flavors.
BTW I'm a heavy vaper and the auto batts get around 7-9 hours (3-4ml in case u measure batt life by ml) of heavy use, pretty impressive IMO
Hit me up if u have any questions, I will post the link to the PTB mod if anyone needs it. Its unfortunate that not a lot of people have shared their input on these batts cuz they're simply awesome.
I'm honestly thinking about selling my Prodigy v3 after this
