    I need a few things so just putting it out there for others opinions, the mod I like is the blue one but I have to wait for stock as usual.

    Haven't used Vaporeyes before but they seem ok.

    Thinking about getting an Eleaf Oppo 22mm tank, 4 x Batt's and a new Mod.

    IJOY MAXO QUAD 18650 TC BOX MOD (Blue)

    The Mod is sound. Daniel, from DJLsb Vapes, gave it a good review.

    I don't know anything about the atomiser.

    I think you are paying too much for just those 2 items @ $159
    Check their prices again.

    The mod I think is fine but it is huge & maybe a 2ml tank on top is going to look a bit out of place.
    I looked at possibly reviewing that mod myself, then saw other mods I thought would be more appealing to more vapers.

    For a tank though, if you like the style of the OPPO then maybe have a look at the Ijoy Tornado 150 subohm RTA, it is a 25mm tank & can hold 4.2ml, it will not look so dwarfed by the mod. & VE has it for about $5 more than the OPPO.
    Or if you really want to get a great tank, the Limitless Plus RDTA holds 6.3ml & would be a perfect combo IMO, they even have a Blue version & VE has them for $10 more than the OPPO.

    Just had a look and seems like a bargain @ ( 39.50 for 2 pair shipped ) ?

    I believe the HG2's are a better Battery being rated at 20A off the shelf and equal 3000Mah with the 30Q's :p

    The other problem I have is I don't trust Samsung with anything anymore, I could choose the 30Q's at Vaporeye's for $10.95 but went for the LG's because they are the best batteries I own and blow away the 25R's I have and the Sony VTC5"s I also have.

    I think I will go with the LG's just for peace of mind :cheeky:

    Totally agree with you on the tank though, Looks like a great tank and the same post set up :thumbup:

    SOLD...! :h:

    Here's my review & build guide thread for the LP RDTA: http://www.vapercafeaustralia.com/threads/ijoy-limitless-plus-rdta-review-build-guide.3972/ should be of interest to you ;)

    The HG2s are not as good, experienced battery testers (including Mooch) rate the Samsung 30Q as being just a little better than the HG2s. I own both (1 set of 3 of each for use in the RX200) & I tend to agree, the Samsungs seem to have slightly better run times.
    Mooch would not rate the 30Q at 20A, if they could not handle that load continuously, I think he actually said the HG2 performs more like a 18A continuous battery too.
    Not trying to tell you what to buy, just letting you know what the experts think.

    And yes, they're a bargain but that's because we'll be getting a volume discount due to the group buy lol

    Thanks Noe I appreciate your advice mate however like I said I have lost faith in Samsung and for the tiny difference in performance I think I will go with my gut on this one.
    Definitely going for the LP RDTA though :nod:

    Yep, not trying to discount your personal experience but have a look at this, HG2 vs 30Q power graphs & tests:



    And you can read this post by Mooch on tasteyourjuice.com : http://www.tasteyourjuice.com/wordpress/archives/13569

    Well that was a good read thanks mate, looks like the LG's retain more capacity by around 6% after 300 cycles meaning they go the distance better than the 30Q's. It's such a competitive market these days which is great for us hey.
    I'll be using 4 batts at lowish watts with TC which is pulsed so I doubt they will be working hard enough to make any heat, that's a good thing as far as deterioration goes and I should get a long time between charging so the HG2's will last me ages. ( 4 days between charging x 300 cycles = 1200 days )

    I learn something new every day :)

    Don't know where you read that but this is the important bit Mooch says in the link I posted:

    if you spend over a certain ammount you will get express shipping after looking at the items you were buying it seems a fair deal compared with the prices online and at other b& m stores and no wait yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    The Aspire Quad-Flex makes a good genny style tank too, and being 22mm some consider it better for flavour when compared to your 25mm tanks such as the L+.

    As for Vapour Eyes: I've used them a fair bit. They're good and free shipping with $50 and over purchases is appealing.

    Yeah I still like the Oppo as well being 22mm and a great deck for building on, and I could use it on my Pico's whereas the larger tanks are to big with the battery cap in the way.
    Over $75 and it's free Express :nod:

    Lastly batteries: Yes Mooch's latest results has debunked the faithful LG HG2 to third place. The Samsung 30Q is now at frist place and the Sony VTC6 at second. From what I gather, the HG2 can run a little hotter than the other two, and the 30Q can also handle lower wattages better. That being said, most of my batts are HG2 and I'm not complaining.
