    Interesting survey! I am actually looking for an on demand battery vape, and hesitate for now between Milaana, Firefly 2 and just discovered the Lil bud yesterday. Your votes will certainly help me!

    I voted for the Milaana. It’s reliable and hard hitting. I didn’t vote for the Grasshopper because they may not work when you need it. Hopefully GH is getting their shit together.:2c:

    Surprised unregulated gets so many votes. Regulated is superior imo.

    Of what you've listed I would say zion, but I'd love to see the tubo on the poll!

    The tubo is in the poll. It's a bit confusing to know whether someone is voting for the splinter or the tubo because they are listed together. Same for MVT and milaana.

    Maybe once enough people have voted the top 3 can be broken down into their component vapes so that the splinter, iheat and tubo can be voted on separately.

    Milaana for me but definitely found the categories to be strange. Like yeah the Zi and the F4 are both regulated but they couldn't be more different.

    I think in general regulation is a good thing but the reason I'd vote for the Mi over the others is mostly form factor.

    Box mod + iHeat/Splinter+ stem is just huge and cumbersome, and not discreet/pocketable.
    The Mi gets as much power as I'd want out of those on a full battery, so for me as long as you change the battery somewhat often its the same experience while working better on the go. Likewise the tubo and the zion are both huge for my tastes but they solve the "cumbersome" part of the equation.

    Grasshopper is regulated and IMO not as good as the other devices, it just gets points for stealth and size.

    I disagree with your comment on the grasshopper. I have yet to see another battery powered vape that gets to temperature faster. Efficiency is top notch. With respect to vaping, I’d say the only real negative would be the short vapour path making it a bit hot/uncomfortable in the throat at times (But I tend to vape at the highest temp). Doesn’t bother me most of the time.

    The grasshopper is impressive for its size for sure, but even with brand new batteries I find its battery life to be practically useless, its taste to be sub-par, and yeah the short vapor path leads to hot vapor and a hot mouthpiece.

    I get faster, cooler, and tastier results with the Mi or iHeat without any of the drawbacks of the hopper.

    Don't get me wrong, again the hopper is impressive for its size, but I pretty much ONLY use it if I'm taking a quick hit before a movie. YMMV.

    The MVT is a bit more compact than the milaana. The main reason I don't use it as much as the others is that almost all of my other vapes use 18mm stems.

    Good Idea, I will create a new poll breaking down the most voted options.

    Milaana. And unregulated all the way for me. My regulated device is in drawer gathering dust.

    I can go from cold to huge cloud faster with the Mi2 than I can the GH. And my Zion on high temp. And my Splinter on high temp, with better flavor from all of them and stronger effects. But that's just me personally.

    If I could only pick one vape and reliability wasn't a factor it would 100% be the Grasshopper. If I could only pick one vape and reliability was a factor it would be the Splinter or Milaana (tough choice.)
    RBT tech/GH is about the same for me as far as speed goes. I always hold the Splinter/Milaana down for 5 seconds to pre-heat when cold so GH 5 second heatup isn't much a factor I guess. Both are basically instant for me. When it comes to vapor thickness throughout the entire hit though Grasshopper wins hands down.
