Oooh that makes the invoke a definite no-go for me hey. Thanks for that info Mitchl.

Curious though, is that an issue with all invokes, or is it just your mod?

I do not have that issue on any of my invokes.

I'm considering the smoant charon though. Any thoughts?

No thanks, though the Charon will probably be a good mod. Smoant is owned by Cloupor, and Cloupor have learned from huge mistakes made in the past like no other company has. Too late to get rid of of their bad reputation name, so they seem to have shifted their activities towards their sister/daughter company Smoant.

If the Wye is not your thing because of the 0.5 watt increments, how about the (recently relisted) Vapor Storm Storm230? SKU 9630496

my Puma shipped today , i got the grey camo. i also really like the invoke too, i use it every day.

+2 details
I have been getting a flawless vape from the Invoke so far, once I turned off the preheat function in Temperature Control. If it out lasts my spaced Authentic MKWS 316L Stainless flat wire single coil which has been going for over a year and a half (maybe longer), I will be seriously impressed! I expect that coil to last forever!

It is smaller than most single battery mods made today. It is about the same size as the original Noise Cricket in size, only slightly wider, which is nice with wider atomizers. How did they do that?

It works with the coils I am using in TC. Yes, I am just using 4 mm spaced raps of SS 316 flat wire.

I hope it keeps working, but my pico from Eleaf has lasted the test of time so far.

Review of the Invoke - ‘inconsistent watt mode performane’ would make me angry.

I would bet looking at my posts about how the mod finds resistance would make it work for you if there is an issue. Stainless steel changes resistance a bit when heated, and if it locks onto a higher temperature resistance, it will throw off its calculation.

The Preheat is limited way too high for my coils, and how most of us vape. Its a nice feature, but it will lower your battery life and that of your cotton. It will tax them for most of us.

Note: It has NEVER kicked out of temperature control EVER with the 4 mm space single coil I am using!

Take the batteries out, look inside and you can see it probably has the thinnest chip-screen combi ever. The batteries are only separated from it by a thin layer of what looks like black adhesive tape. If you check your Pico you will see that it looks more solid and better finished inside, and that chip and screen are completely separated from the side with the battery. I fear this loudmouth won't stay the only one screaming about his Invoke being A PAIN IN THE ASS because of a failing screen.

Thanks for helping me decide to shut off preheat in VW mode :-)

@rico300zx, that's awesome news man. I'm hoping to read a review from you soon. How long does it normally take for you to receive your stuff once it's shipped? I also wana get the grey camo but there's something which concerns me.

Every pic I see of the display shows uneven battery drain. The right battery bar always seems to show more charge. I know it does balanced charging, which is awesome but uneven battery drain is a major con in my book.

Although, I'm just assuming the uneven battery drain issue because of the pics I've seen, so I'm hoping it's not actually the case.

@ShahinJ: My Invoke with "battery balancing trickle charge system" always shows unbalanced battery levels on its screen, and baterry info always shows 0.01V-0.03V difference between the two cells. The charging level and the position of the batteries don't matter, the right one always shows a lower level. But in practice both are empty at almost the same moment, it works very well.

My Invoke showed a slight difference in charge with the batteries on the first day, but is now showing them the same all the time. I haven't charged batteries through the usb port at all.
