    Cool New to Vaping, need some advice on a new vape

    I just started vaping not to long ago, I started with 24mg and im down to 6-8mg (London fog 8mg). I upgraded and got the mvp 20watt w/ an aspire nautilus 5ml tank. I just bought a vamo v9 40watt with a Iclear 30, my question is is that a good vape? or did i just waste $47.85?? I don't wanna go to building just yet... any suggestions or comments helpful info? thanks

    Can't go wrong with a nautilus , I've tried the iclear once , meh it makes vapour . After a while curiosity will get the best of you tho and you'll want to try building so I wouldn't go spending a pile of cash on tanks . The nautilus is one of the best as far as I'm concerned so look no further.

    I'm less a fan of the mega stick style batteries these days (assume the Vamo V9 is their big tube fire stick taking 18650s)

    I think the best bang for the buck in mods right now is the iStick Mini 30w. Gives ample power, allows you to sub ohm if you like. If you're regular ohm'ing (Nautilus, 1.5, 1.8, 2.0 ohm) it'll last up to two days in that tiny size. Allows for future upgrading to sub ohm, but stays tiny and light.

    Edit - my advice, stay away from the iClears. Old clearomizer top coil tech. Dry hits galore, lotta plastics and suspect wicks. Want a nice little tank that's cheap and has good priced coils? Get the Aspire K1 and the Aspire BVD coils that fit it.

    Personally i think the Nautilus is an overpriced clearo for someone who is satisfied with a simple vape. I run basic Evods, Aspires, MT3s's and my Nautilus is no better. In fact i'd take a regualr Aspire over it any day. Buy it if you're not satisfied but not because of other people's hype.

    This i can't agree with: the atomizers for the Nautilus provide a much more satisfying vape (and clouds) than even Aspire's BVC and BDC coils for their older tanks (and the new K1). In my own progression, I went from Kanger's variety of coils for their Protanks and Unitanks and Aerotanks (dual, single, 2.4ohm 2.0ohm, 1.8oh, 1.6ohm) to the Aspire BDC coils and some older tank of theirs, and liked it. Then I went to the Nautilus system and coils, and liked it even more. This was before I saw any reviews on it too - the size of the Nautilus' atomizer (and airflow path) intrigued me at a B&M.

    The Nautilus BVC coils were also my first venture into full cotton wick vaping, a huge eye opener. Most of the others at that time were silica or other weird materials. Cotton, as long as it's kept nice and moist, really transports flavours well.

    The other real boon of the Nautilus and Nautilus mini, for me at least, was it was the first tank I never, ever had a leaking issue on. The Kangers would leak all the time on me, usually after one or two fills and me getting the atomizer broken in. Until the Nautilus, I thought leaking was par for the course if you wanted to vape. Also, the Nautilus design, while not gurgle proof, was much easier to de-flood than my older tanks (no puff fires of the coil button, placing the device on its side for a few minutes always did the trick).

    Anyway, my $0.02.

    We have to agree to disagree, but you did a great job of explaining why you recommend it over others instead of just saying it's better. Allow me to do the same:
    Evods - yes, they are small capacity, no a drag won't fill a room with cloud, but for me, they do not leak and seldom gurgle.
    MT3S - better capacity, seldom gurgle, i find they leak if not in regular use (sitting on a shelf) and when the coil needs maintenance.
    iClear 30's - requires more flooding maintenance than the 1st 2 to keep running smoothly, but some juices taste much better in an iClear 30.
    Aspire Vivi Nova - very low vape capacity, but nice taste, require slower vaping technique, never leaks, never floods.
    Aspire Nova using BDC or BVC coils - some flooding issues, seldom leaks if used regularly.
    Protank with Aerotank base - no leakage, minor flooding, extremely easy to maintain, very inexpensive coils.

    I tried one of my favorite juices in a Nautilus and the taste was not as good as my regular Aspire. Went through 3 coils over 3-4 weeks. Switched back to my regular Aspire and the taste is fine.

    Just saying it's not necessary to fix something not broken - if you are content with what you use, don't buy the hype. People on here would have you believe sub ohm, rebuiling etc is the only way to go and that's false. Ask any store what they sell the most of - it's Evods and smaller gear.

    FWIW OP, you seem to have an updated version of the setup I went with when I first upgraded from my eGo/CE4 setup. That is, MVP (mine was v1), Vamo (mine was v3), and a pbusardo approved tank system (mine was top-coil Vivi Nova). I'm only now looking to upgrade, and that has more to do with the MVP getting low on remaining charge cycles than anything else (Nautilus, Kayfun, and drippers all still work well on both of my old, 12-15W devices).

    Is it a good setup? I think so! But I think the better question is do YOU like the vape? If the answer to that question is yes, you've got a great setup!

    P.S. - Vamo can be hit or miss. There are (or at least were) a few companies making them, and not all of them have the best QC. Either you get a good one and it's a solid workhorse, or you get a dud and it's probably already busted! Mine is still going strong, with no problems at all, but I've read some forum posts from people who have had issues (with older versions...I personally can't speak to anything newer than the v5).

    istick 30w $40 + subtank mini $34.
    i have 2 nautilus's and i dont use them anymore as my 2 subtank mini's are that much better.
    u would need to reduce ur nic w/this combo.
    it works so well u will use up more juice because u will vape it more.
    imo ymmv

    I have a Vamo V2 and do like ita lot. It is solid, and if someone tries to rob you, just pull out your Vamo and beat em'! Joking aside, as I have a V2, I had replaced the ring under the center pin, but besides that, I like it. And for your tank set-up, I cannot comment as I have not used one. I do however like my Mini Nova's as well as my new eLeaf GS Air. This thing does not leak, believe me, I tried, and gives a great all round vape. The airflow adjustment does require a screwdriver, which made me leery, but I have NO problems whatsoever.
