Which Vapes Have You Been Hitting?
Tell me a little about — BestBuds
It's a similar design with similar materials. Both use a 16mm coil. Both use a quartz heater (although very different forms). Both are very open draw. That said they require a different technique and provide different results.
The Elev8R taste better in my opinion. The DeskPod milks quicker with the larger quartz mass and stainless steel housing. I rip my Elev8R hard with the glass beads but you don't need to pull they hard to make steam with the DeskPod.
Elev8R enail will be cheaper. The optional Stainless Steel housing on the DeskPod will be the most expensive piece of the kit and likely most significant reason for the price difference in the kits. I am sourcing a budget coil and controller option in order to get the Elev8R kit under $200 which will further widen the cost gap.
But lets me real, the DeskPod is gonna look 1000 times better with that nice stainless steel housing. And the benefits don't stop there. It's supposed to help performance and will keep the coil unexposed for safety.
