colt kwilkerson: thanks Bob for a great review. i am looking at the Zmax so i know i will
get the Zmax now. i don't have the funds for the Provari anyway. thanks for
the common sense review. and i am going to get some of those battery's
youngnreckless whiteboy: props for not trying to act like a pro reviewer
shirlzknight: Mr Eddelman, hi there just wanted to ask you a quick question if you dont
mind, I was wondering what version of the z-max is that your using in the
video? I have just ordered today and I am hoping yours is the same as mine.
Thank you. Oh yea and thank you for taking the time for this upload.
Steven Sawyer: Ha Bob,caught your vid, good review. The threads on the 510 connection on
my Vammo just wore out after just 6mo. So I will probably be getting a
ZMax. The Proveri cost to much for me and i like the ego threads on the
ZMax. Thanks, S. Sawyer in TEXAS
Earl Wells: Thank you for a fine review on both of these models. You made mind up which
one to buy.
andy mclachlan: Zmax/agat2 thank the bomb yeah I have gone 2 wks no cigarettes. Thks.
Rdm155. Im smoke free.
rduncan06: Hey, where did you find the 3000mah 18650's. I love to pick some up. Just
ordered the zmax made by Sigelei a few days ago. Had a Lava Tube for about
the last year , but its seen better days.
DstructiveZ: Nice review, a lot of good information for some people who may be shopping
around for a variable voltage. I recently got my Zmax in a gun metal finish
for 90 dollars, kind of wish i got it in stainless because they don't seem
to have an extension cap in guns metal finish yet. so far i'm loving the
device. Also if i may add, it is nice to see that some one in a cowboy hat
making a review with unbiased opinions between an american vs chinese made
jpatter123: mini w/o extension works with an 18350 IMR battery. The mini's are a top
seller in our store, but with an 800mAh single 18350 most heavy vapors only
make it about half a day out of one battery. If you buy the full size zmax
you can use a 18650 batteries w/o the extension cap and I usually get about
1.5 days out of a 2000 or better 18650. So options are full size with
18650, full size with extension 2 18350's, mini with 1 18350 or mini with
extension cap 1 18650.
jefferstangier: Excellent review/comparison. Thanks for taking the time and doing this.
I've wondered a bit about both these devices and your explaning make it
much clearer how they are.
princelouiecocoa: Thank you. I am so new to vaping idk what I'm doing lol. I purchased a X8
cartomizer tank. Is that good for zmax mini? Do I need a carto punch? Lol
Options galore. Is that dripping? I need to know so much
Fielderfarms: Great video....Thanks Bob
Sylbi Nates: nice vid Bob..thanks
Bob Eddelman: I've tested both the Zmax and Provari using the AW IMR high drain batteries
and the Trustfire batteries, which are NOT high drain batteries, and can
detect no difference in operation, but the trustfire batteries last a
little longer, so I use those instead. I knew they said only use IMR high
drain batteries, which is why I tested it so much, but my test show they
both operate identical using the trustfire batteries, and so far, I have
not seen any decrease in the trustfire batteries use times.
Dan Stearns: Just a few things about the provari - they should be 5 clicks into the menu
system and one click to switch between, but I find the buttons on them to
sometimes "miss" clicks. So sometimes it'll take you 6-7 clicks to get into
the menu, sometimes it'll take you 2-3 between menu items. I think this has
a lot to do with the menu overshooting on them. Are you using mean or RMS
on the Zmax? Also, you should probably annotate the video with that error -
it's "E1" not "13" :-P Vape on!
Bob Eddelman: My test weren't based on measuring anything, simply by how the device vaped
using both batteries, and I can use the same power setting with either
battery and can not detect any difference in how they vape, and that's all
that matters to me!
boisediggler: I bought a zmax.. Today loving it ...no more burnt toast taste for me
ARCSTREAMS: very nice video like your style,my next q's will all be for the zmax 1)can
you set it so that it will not display any info as your vaping? 2)does it
recommend a setting to whatever atomiser you got set up? 3)does it fire
exactly at whatever v/w you got it set to? 4)does it have that rms feature
thing? 5)any rattling noises ? hope you dont mind if i come back with more
Bob Eddelman: And if you don't remove the safety circuit on the trustfire, as I have
started doing, you have that extra safety circuit built in on the trustfire
battery and there is no safety circuit protection on the AW IMR batteries,
so in that case, the trustfire batteries are safer to use, because if the
short circuit protection on the mod fails, the trustfire safety circuit
will still protect the battery.
ARCSTREAMS: ahh ok you answered 3 and the rest thx again sir
Bobby Woodhaven: Hey Bob, any chance you can make a video showing how you customized the
settings? I just got a ZMAX and need to get it to fire like yours!
ARCSTREAMS: ok so for 2 your saying it does not auto reg itself to whatever atomiser
you plug in? if its reg on P rather than V this means its not reading your
ohms or whatever R you got on the coil is this right? and not sure if you
answered 3 ? thx
monkfry: Damn, I wish you were my neighbor. No bullcrap here and you seem like a
real down to earth guy. I'd return your lawn mower too haha
BodyCount: Good video I actually watched the whole thing. I have a provari, zero
complaints, but I enjoyed how you ran down the menus and why you liked the
zmax better. I've honestly yet to try one, but perhaps next time in the
vape shop I'll sample it with one of my tanks on there and go for a spin.
Lastly, get some vids of your dogs on here. I enjoy seeing what people are
vaping in and what canines they got in the house lol.
ARCSTREAMS: well then you better get the extension feature and get it on
Dennis Burbank: Bob that's a great vid. Thanks for your input. I like the zmax to. lot of
extra steel in the provari and finish can come off
AnsgarBenso: Thank you very much for your help! -You really should consider making more
videos. I feel like i'm getting an honest view on the devices. Best Regards
mesteryoda: Just bought the Sigelei Zmax 5 days ago, and for the low entry price, its a
great mod! Thing feels super solid, and i kinda thing it looks like a
stainless steel dildo... so thats what i call it "my vape-dildo" :)
James Carpenter: I think that this is all about preference, and what works for you. I happen
to be a pretty accident prone person and knocked my zmax over on the coffee
table, note it was a 4" drop at most, and the internals are all messed up
now, the button doesn't line up etc. As for the provari, I just received
one and have knocked it over multiple times and have actually dropped it
from 4 feet on accident of course and no problems whatsoever. Just another
perspective from a spazz. Provari all the way 4 me
PrettyPistol86: Okay, now that's weird. I dunno, I must've hit a typo or something??
edward garnet: Z max is cheap right now. Vapoligy.com has them for 80 bucks. The o max is
currently out but not sure of price
Charlotte Arcand: I enjoyed your vid. Please make more...especially since I just subscribed :)
Eddie Krueger: it's funny that u don't notice that if you do review about vapors there's a
lots of viewer will search for the video. Any way, your review is helping
me a lot in choosing my next mod. Yeah of course i will choose Zmax, just
order it via online hehehe.. And definitely will choose Trustfire battery
Anthony DiSano: I agree. I've had my Provari for over a year and it's seen some HORRIBLE
drops, bumps and mishaps (some that really should have permanently damaged
it) and it still looks and works 100%. The Provari IS built like a tank.
(I'm not knocking the ZMAX by any means, it looks like a great device!) It
just goes to show that you get what you pay for regardless of the product.
Bob Eddelman: Got my second Zmax in with the blue LED, it's working great too, I love how
it looks with the blue light. Put my Provari up to save in case I need it
some day, and now alternate between my two Zmax's. Using a black Vivi Nova
tank and tip on the one with a red LED and using a blue tank and tip on the
one with the blue LED, I usually switch back and forth with a couple
different, juices, so I just alternate between the two... neither Zmax has
had any issues, they just work good!!!
AnsgarBenso: Nice video, mate! Thank you very much. -It just got harder to choose, now
that you recommend the Zmax.
x1jelly1x: Cool vid and i just ordered my zmax before i saw your vid and after some
disappointment cause of some of the thumbs down on the zmax you make it
seem like my money was well spent almost got the provari.... Also jwaps.com
for some cool skin wraps on these devices!!!!
ROBERT COTA: kool channel very informative. i also have a vaping channel im just
starting off sub to my channels name is robert cota
Marshall Bates: bob you did a vary good job on your video,I ordered a z max yesterday i
should get it fri or sat ,so i've been watching videos , hoping to learn
how it works. your video help me, thank you for posting the video on the z
max.thanks a gen
mrrascal420: Exellent review, finally darwin and provari have real competition. Who
needs all that now that a zmax came out
Jeff Hudson: I'm spreading this video like wild fire!!!
AnsgarBenso: Wow. Nice! My firend, i was wondering if you can recommend a mizer for
these mods? I see you're using the Vivi Nova, but is there another mizer
you ike in particular?
princelouiecocoa: Hi I am thinking about getting the Zmax Mini. What batteries do you
recommend I should use? Its smaller so I'm just wondering how would the
Trustfire work. Will I need more than an extension cap? New to vaping so I
can use some help and/or suggestions. Thanks
Bob Eddelman: But with or without RMS, the Zmax stays consistent wherever you set it at,
which is all that matter's... I could care less about all those folks who
argue about how to exactly measure this pulse width modulation precise
power/voltage level's, the important thing is if stays where you set it! An
no, there is no rattling!
Ricky Sykes: I'm broke so I've got a lavatube.. As soon as I get me some money I'm
getting a Provari
Johnny Nguyen: I haven't smoked since feb 7th 2013.
youredxspanktube: Nice video I hope you make more videos regarding the zmax and or other
vaping items. Thanks!
Bob Eddelman: You can set it so there is no display when vaping. No, it doesn't recommend
a setting for a new atomizer, but if you are using the watts/power setting,
then when you switch to another atomizer with a different resistance your
vaping is probably going to be pretty close to where you want it, because
it is regulating on power, rather than voltage. My newest Zmax does have
the RMS feature, and it seems to me, if I use the RMS feature, it regulates
at a slightly lower power.
Bao Nguyen: I only see less than 15k views :) where did you get your view count? ...
estetyk: Good information, thanks Bob! Zmax looks like a winer to me.
