TC reliability any better than a Pico?
just curious if anyone has had better results with this in TC mode than a Pico with the same RTA and build.

I have both of them for about a year, use them both on TC almost exclusively and never had any problem with TC with any of them so would call them about the same, for me they both just work fine.

I have 3 of these and 2 Picos.

Now bear in mind that i also have a couple SX Minis that are perfect for SS/TC.
TBH, I prefer the eVic to the Pico for SS/TC.

I have occasionally found that the Pico will suddenly decide not to read a coil but that same coil on my SXs or eVics is read perfectly.
And I know without a doubt the coil is not the problem.

Either or I like for the price but picking between the two at least for SS/TC I will choose the eVic.
I have not had any issues on any of mine, with the 510 that some others have had though.


Edit: Should have added though, the few times that the coil can't be read, I have just quickly readjusted it and it has again.
But never had that happen on the evics.

If you are using SS/TC, today, many have moved to this mod. Only a couple extra dollars.

They're made by affiliated companies using the same technology...
Woah, mama!

I think it has more to do with the atomizer and wire other than pico vs. Evic. I've had unreliable results using avocados with even single SS wire. I've even had SS Clapton wire either not work in TC from the start, or sometimes work days later in TC after vaping in wattage mode for a while. I hope to have better results with a new atomizer I just ordered...the Serpent RDTA.

You can reflash to arctic fox on either one, I'd probably pick the evic bc the bigger screen lends some extra functionality with the custom firmware.

But yeah you're looking in the right place, with arctic fox available, it gives the evics and picos the functionality of a $100+ dollar mod, you'd be doing yourself a disservice to buy any other cheap mod imo. Only thing that beats it is a dna.

Have heard that mentioned with the Avocado before, although I didnt pay attention as to why.
