    Okay FIRST I hope I am posting this in the right spot, if not please dont hesitate to redirect me to the appropriate spot or redirect me if somehow I overlooked the forum that answers my question.

    So, I have enjoyed my herbs for a while but Im looking for a healthier method to smoke. Thus I started researching vaping and I've been on FC for the past weeks narrowing my search for the perfect first time vape pen. I want stealth on the go but also good quality hits. I finally decided on Dr. Dabber and the O-Phos after looking at several impressive reviews.But I have reached a stalemate.
    I've considered the Omicron(too much $, not enough stealth), Atmos Bullet 2 Go, Atmos Optimus 510, and countless others (VB Dabbler, Micro, Snoop Dog Gpen to name a few.) I don't want a plastic or metallic (or too harsh in general) aftertaste like the other pens in the market.
    Reasons I would buy the O-phos: Its under $80, can use runnier material(correct me if I am wrong please), locking feature, KISS cart, and 1 year warranty.
    Dr. Dabber pros; there are multiple things included in the package, mostly durable from what Ive read, deeper cart, and works great.
    Con: I am pretty sure the atomizer will need replacing at some point. Which vape would last the longest? How long does each one have until I have to start replacing parts?

    Search Big Bowl Wax atomizer on Ebay. I've been using the same kind of pen as the Dabber/Dabbler/Dabstik/710 Mini etc. with the same atomizer cleaned well over 50 times since last July with no failure besides needing new battery.
    I've since gotten several more for different flavors etc.

    Some have said there's a microprocessor specifically designed for the atomizer.
    Also, that using ANYTHING other than their battery (2x $ as the eGo it looks like) will damage the atty or battery.
    I have not actually measured performance on a meter to compare a name brand "special" battery to an eGo or the like, so no empirical evidence only testimonial.

    That said, I've tried the VB Dabbler,Dabstik, an 710 mini, as well as some clones. All performed the same. I did not hold the button own for the full 10 secs but instead bursts of 3 as I've always done. Maybe with a full hold, the special PCB limits power. This may be a plus for some, but I don't need a regulator to vape without burning stuff. Tried with just about all the basic eGo style batteries I have of varying brands, although the Dabbler's battery did seem to be more consistent til discharged totally. I liked that battery a lot till I lost it lol.

    There may be a slight decrease in battery life with the eGo style bats, but it is negligible at best. Not to mention I can get an eGo pass through for 6-8 bucks. A "name brand" battery for 40. With a dif of less that 25% in battery life......
    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.....what to do?
    I've since gone to generic re-brands of the same atty. They are 3 for $12 for low mounted grade 2 ti coils ceramic wick/rod and cup instead of $30 a piece for "name brand" lol.
    BTW Divine tribe has good deals on all forms of this atomizer with $8 replacement heaters. Also a pretty awesome low resistance all ceramic atty that looks amazing, for concentrates at least.

    Again, no difference in performance or longevity unless they are mistreated or not cleaned regularly with 99% ISO.
    Not dogging any of the name brands at all, just stating my observations and theories regarding most of these things being eerily similarto stuff from alibaba.com. Look around it and you'll begin see all of them even the "cannon" lol. Just gotta order 100 lol.

    pigfoot Dabs are vapor too!

    It goes wthout saying, but you want to vape concentrates only, yes?
    Vaporwarehouse.com has the Ophos for $50 with coupon code SUMMER

    Looks like divinetribe only has the Ti coils in some models? Could you link to a basic, complete unit, with Ti coil?

    Ophos or Omicron lite.

    I have omicron lite and love it. KISS cartridges are the best.
