That’s right, no matter where you look online you can find something about the new eGo C Twist’s – I gotta admit they look pretty awesome and sound even better.
I’ve been using a 650 and 1100mAh eGo setup for a while now, I have nothing bad to say about them. However, I should add I’m not a big fan of the tank system, my setup consists of LR Boge cartos and a derlin or sing drip tip – that’s just how I roll. The tanks are great, but not my style and to be honest I had a few issues with the quality – specifically caps falling part or getting stuck in my atties, and the leakage. The batteries on the hand are great!
The other thing I really love about the eGo “line” is that there is lot’s of choice when it comes to battery power, color, tank vs. cart. vs carto, atomizer style ( 510/510 T/Cone/C), and now VV with the Twist.
There is definitely a loyal following of eGo users, and many eGo T users have made the switch to the eGo C, so invariably they will with the Twist as well. However, the eGo is not for everyone, it’s a certain type of vaping style, but I guess you could say that about Any “Brand” of ecigs. Personally, I like the eGo’s for their batteries, as already mentioned, but a good MOD like an Omega or Prodigy is more my vaping style these days, which is why I am very interested if not excited about the Twist.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but the Twist looks like a light weight mash up of your standard eGo and VV MOD’s – cool! As far as I know, this may be the first lightweight, user friendly, low entry VV on the market. I’m not counting the VV eGo because it is not a genuine Joye.
Ok, enough banter, what is the Twist?
Basically the Twist is an eGo C battery with an on board VV. For those of you unfamiliar with the term VV it stands for Variable Voltage. In the case of the eGo C Twist the technology used for the VV is known as the inner smart buck-boost converter, which can adjust voltage output from 3.2v to 4.8v. I’ve read that the new eGo-C Twist is safer than regular Joye batteries because each battery has 3 kinds of protections:
- Short Circuit Protection: When short-circuit happens, the battery will shut down. The battery won’t go back to work until short-circuit ends.
- Atomizer Protection: If you press the button for 10 seconds, the battery will be locked until the next press.
- Low Voltage Protection: When the battery voltage is lower than 3.3v, the battery will shut down.
Let’s take a look at the performance. Below are 2 charts, courtesy of NicFitNation.com, that illustrate Performance and Safe Vaping
With a company like Joye behind this technology I wonder if Variable Voltage is the future of vaping for all types of vapers, it’s already popular with the veterans. The Guide to Vaping posted a really great article on this –Will Variable Voltage be teh future of Vaping?
The biggest benefit of VV is that users have full control over the “kind” of vaper they want – cooler, warmer, etc. They can customize there PV for their use, and that’s a great thing. I see the eGo C Twist as a great way to introduce rookies to a whole new world of vaping they may have never ventured to before.
So far reviews all over the web are positive. What do you think?
