Listening to my whole Prince discography today. I wonder how many people are familiar with the first four albums he did in the late 70s-early 80s, before the breakout hit "1999". Really amazing music on which he wrote all the songs, played all the instruments, and sang all the vocals - and at age 20-23! So far ahead of his time in style, concept, and merging of genres. Truly one of a kind.

Lazy Vapers Custom Wood Dual Parallel 18650 Unregulated Box Mod - $125

This is a one of a kind, custom, hand made wooden box mod in perfect condition. I won this in a raffle on Instagram and have used it only a few times but I prefer series boxes and need cash. These sell for $200+ so this is a good deal. Really quality mod to add to your collection. Paypal only. Buyer pays for shipping.

Picking up my new (to me) motorcycle today. Very excited - haven't ridden in 10+ years. Anyone have any experience with vaping while riding? Is it even possible or too dangerous? Are there accessories available to attach to the bike to carry vape gear? Just curious.

Well, consider me another vaper who has left the self-described "welcoming" Vape Society Google+ community. I guess it was inevitable, but the final straw was when I shared a few points of disagreement in an attempt at constructive criticism with the moderators there and my comment was deleted along with being told to "get with the program or get out" (direct quote). It's so disappointing to me when the vape community at large is in such a state where unity is necessary to see such a promotion of separation and disdain for anyone with an opinion different than their own. Can't we all just get along?

Not sharing this to start any (more) drama. Just venting, I guess. And saying thank you to all of you here who allow me to share without editing, censoring or deleting me. Upward and onward!

We watched an interesting, entertaining and thought-provoking movie last night. I'd be interested in hearing anyone else's thoughts on this if you've seen it, or after you watch it. Available on Netflix right now...

IPV D2 vs. Koopor Mini

Got the IPV D2 in today. I didn't "need" it but got a great deal I couldn't pass up for $40.99 shipped from ecigavenue.com. So far I'm very impressed. For about $5 dollars more than I paid for my Koopor Mini I get 15 watts more power and the following "improvements":

1. Better, easier to operate menu: I don't like the timeouts on the Koopor Mini menu, nor the various little icons you have to learn in order to know what you're selecting. The IPV D2 menu works almost identically to my Sigelei 150W TC, so it is both familiar and simple to use.

2. Brighter, easier to read screen: although the IPV D2 screen looks a little smaller, it's a bright, high-contrast white on black vs. the blue on black of the Koopor. I can't even read the Koopor when outside in daylight. Of course, that could also be my aging eyes, but they see the IPV D2 screen with ease.

3. More intuitive control: on the Koopor Mini there are settings for "Soft", "Normal" or "Hard" that designate the wattage range to be used within temp control. While this works fine once you get used to it, I prefer setting the temp and then setting the joules to exactly what I want to use instead, as I can do on the IPV D2.

4. Slightly smaller form factor: the two are almost identical in size, but the IPV D2 is slightly smaller - and packs more power? Wow! I haven't weighed them, but in the hand the IPV D2 feels slightly lighter as well.

5. No beveled edge for atty overhang: my OCD goes a little nuts every time I look at the Koopor Mini from the side and see every tank or RDA on top of it hanging over the curved top of the mod. They all sit nice and flush with nothing peeking over the edge on the IPV D2.

6. Black sleeve, not orange: this is obviously personal preference, but why would I want my black or silver tanks and RDAs sitting on top of a mod enclosed in a bright orange sleeve? I love the sleek, stealthy look of the black sleeve on the IPV D2, and it fits and feels nice as well.

At this point I don't anticipate dumping the Koopor Mini because I've loved it from the beginning (except for the things mentioned above) but for those of you that are thinking about purchasing one of these two devices hopefully my thoughts will help you make your decision. If I had somehow had the ability to test the 2 side by side before I bought one, I would've chosen the IPV D2. Of course, I've only had it for a few hours, so I could always discover something that I don't like, but right now I see no negatives, and I call it a step up, albeit a small one, from the Koopor Mini.
