    Geekvape’s Aegis Legend and its Aero bubble tank are by far, #!!! I bought the Stealth color scheme and LOVE it! They’re in a class of

    I had the vaporesso swag, Ijoy avenger and the geekvape aegis legend, as well as about 5-6 others this year alone and the only one still going strong is the legend… and not only going, it outperforms all of the others mentioned with the exception of the ijoy avenger but that runs 20700’s which made it light up any tank I had on it instantly… however eventually the fire button broke. All the votes here for the innokin proton sold me on one which I’m gonna try next if not the uwell crown 4… Happy New year…

    Only one on the list I agree with is the GeekVape Aegis Legend. Otherwise, the VandyVape Pulse 80 watt /PulseX, Innokin Proton, Vaporesso Polar, among others should have made the list before others on yours. Just wanted to state my own opinion. Merry Christmas, and a happy, healthy, safe, and prosperous New Year to ALL at my favorite online vape supply store EIGHTVAPE, and everyone else out there! Many blessings to you you ALL! May GOD bless!

    I guess not enough people are aware of how Smoant just blows the he’ll out of several on that list. I have both the Battlestar and the Charon. The two have both been through hell and back and neither have ever missed a beat. I can’t believe two from Smok made the list. Most of their products wind up being overpriced paper weights from what I’ve seen personally.

    the geekvape aegis legend is the best dual 18650 mod of this year, especially if you desire one that is tough as shit & won’t break, is waterproof and don’t mind it being a little bit larger than others. i mean, for the money, it is well worth every cent – it’s got a pretty basic screen, but still has everything you need like temperature control, t.c.r. & even custom power and temperature curves. it’s got great ergonomics & feels good in the hand. also, the buttons are nice & clicky & nothing rattles. i like them so much i’ve got 2 of them. 5 stars all the way!
