Which one to buy???
I have been watching reviews from Darin and others over and over again. I am currently waiting for my pay check on Friday to buy a kit. But which one? The DAV ultimate kit seems like the best value. But the Zeus looks like it may be better according to reviews.
Do the tanks work pretty well with the Zeus?
Oh and I was also worried since I will only be able to afford one kit at least for the first two weeks, I thought the pass through on the Zeus might be the way to go. And then maybe the following pay check I could save and get the DAV kit. Then I would have two batteries. A few flavors to experiment with.
I can't wait to get rid of the analogs!!
Welcome to the forum Scott! I wish I had an answer for you, but everyone is so different in what setup they prefer. Either the DAV or the Zeus would be an excellent choice. I don't know what you are currently using or what backups you have, but the DAV (while an awesome device) does take fairly long to re-charge. So, if you were to go that route, I would make sure that I had two of them (or another backup device for while it is charging). The beauty of the DAV is that it is a variable voltage device, so you can find the perfect setting for any different type of juice. However, with the Zeus (5 volt, not variable voltage), you could actually get by with just one battery because of the fast re-charging time and pass through function. Both are truly great batteries, but some like the variable voltage feature over the regulated 5 volt. I have both, and personally don't really have a preference, other than the Zeus charges super fast, so it is usually the first one I reach for.
Either is a great choice.... good luck on your journey! I am sure others will chime in with more information on your choice, but please let us know what you went with... We love hearing your story!
I nearly bought the zeus, but by good advice of members here, for my 1st big battery I went with the DAV, which I am very glad I did, I do use the highest setting (4.8 volts) but only on the rare occasion, just when I feel like I need a strong hit, and then I will only hit it a few times and then dial it back down to between 3.7 and 4.2, even though the zeus is a awesome bit of kit, think it is good battery to have if have others you can use too, I personally wouldn't want to have only a 5 volt device all the time. But as Mystic said, the DAV do take a long time to charge, and I only started with one DAV and within a week I got a 2nd one, so I am never without a DAV, also if get the DAV, the 1st few charges do take longer than normal, but once broke in, they do charge a little faster. I use one at work for about 9 hours, when I get home I put it on charge and go to bed, when I get up, it is fully charged and ready to go again.
Hello Scott, and welcome to the forum! :hello:
All who have given advice here are correct. The simple fact is that you can not go wrong with either, and my guess is you will end up with multiple versions of each! I have to echo some of Mystic's thoughts on the matter though: If I had to pick just one, I would throw my hat at the Zeus due to the fact that it has the pass-through ability and its fast charging. I use my tanks as well as the Smileos and even regular cartos on my Zeus with out issue.
Do let us know which one you choose, and update us with what you think after using it.
Good luck and as always...
Welcome to the forum Scott!! I agree with the Zeus in your situation. Ideally I would recommend the DAV, but in your case you will need the fast charging time and passthrough function if you are going to go with one battery. I love tanks on my Zeus and also recommend you buy different ohm and coil cartos to use in the tank. If you are limited on those as well then I personally think that the 3 ohm single coil cartos work best at 5v, but that is purely my opinion. The tanks come with a 1.5ohm dual coil carto in it and that is just too hot of a vape for my liking, especially at 5v. What juice are you thinking of getting? That is going to be your toughest decision to make. If you buy a bottle of juice it's really hard to know if you will like it, and the only real way to find a juice you like is to try different ones as taste is subjective and only you know what tastes good to you.
Best of luck and let us know if you need help with anything else!
Thanks for all the info from everybody! I am traditionally a menthol lover (camel crush). So i was thinking about getting the traditional menthol.
Is there anyway to describe the difference in the "bestseller" menthols? There about three flavors that seems to be popular menthols. I thought it would be safest to try traditional.
I am literally counting the minutes until friday (or thursday at midnight) when i can order!
oh, i am almost certain i will get zeus first, DAV second. Does the auto version work just as well as the auto/manual? I am fine with only auto if it performs just as well.
If the long charge time of the dav is an issue, I'd recommend the Zeus. If you want more options with voltage, I'd recommend the dav. Sure the dav takes a lot longer to charge, but you have the voltage to play around with. The Zeus is a great battery too, I just don't like being limited to 5v all the time. If you plan on just vaping smileos and tanks you'll be happy with either device. Oh and welcome to the forum Scott!
I have both the auto/manual and the auto Zeus and I personally see no reason for the manual mode. The auto is so very responsive and most closely resembles an anolog cig (or cigar). On your question of juice, I wish I could answer but taste is just too subjective. I liked the Smilin Special (menthol on inhale, with slight hint of chocolate on exhale).

And if you do get a couple that you don't particularly care for, hang onto them and try them again in a month or so. Once your taste buds and sense of smell return most people also notice a change in tastes, especially when it comes to juice flavors.
