Tornado Booster
« on: September 22, 2011, 06:13:14 AM »
I know I don't post on here much but I just wanted to tell everyone how happy I am with my booster upgrade.  I was a little hesitant on buying it because of the price but I will tell you all it is so worth the investment.  It is also worth the look of playing some sort of wind instrument as you smoke it...haha.  I have been analog free for 8 months and I owe it all to totally wicked.  Keep vaping my friends and let me know if you have any questions on my recent booster purchase.

Glad to see you are happy with the booster.
I canít decide if I want to go that way or not, I use an SD and am happy the way it is but itís a new shiny thing and RESISTANCE IS FUTILE  ;)
Congratulations on the 8 months stinky free.

I'm doing my best to resist temptation until I've heard comments from others. Can this thread be made a sticky, and can others let us know their experiences? I'm just looking for solid reasons to purchase (biggest hesitation is the wind instrument connotations!) and I'm sure others will too.

Out of interest what's the warranty arrangement with them? Are these designed for longevity?

Pretty sure it's 6 month's warranty on them. I've had mine since end of June + no problem's so far. It does make for quite a long piece though lol. As for using it on the SD when i'm at home I use it on my SD then if I leave is when I have it on my tornado's.

Since my e-cig setup is a Mega Tornado Battery/Atomizer and cartridge I can't see me buying this.
It'll look ridiculous.

If I were to buy it then I would have to use it with the regular sized Tornado battery,

Also, am I right in saying the booster only works with the newer Tornado batteries ? i.e. the ones
that come with the Tank kit ?

No - the battery I used in my review was bought last November

Mine came today :),other than a few scratches to the chrome all seems good.
It didn't come in the nice box shown in the youtube videos,but if a basic box helps keep prices down i'm all for it. :)
tested with the devices with both normal and LR atty's, tanks and it works very well.
think i'll be leaving mine on max as much as possible unless my attys start dying really fast.

just wish they was cheaper,then i'd get another as backup hehe


only been using it for a few hours,but so far my advice is BUY ONE!!! :)

for those of you worried about looking like a flute, let me say this.  It is awesome.  Don't take it out of the house.  I use mine only at home. Or if you are on a plane, you can pretend that you are playing a flute but you are actually vaping!  8)

Yes,  as i went to buy one the black was sold out so I bought a silver mega battery and mega atomiser to match it. At 7" long with no taper and 2 'buttons', the first impression on assembling was  :-[ 'I haven't got the nerve to carry this around, have I?'  it'd come in handy if you had any kubotan skills  lol

The device works fantastic with the mega atty though. I've found that even on half power it seems to just burn on the 2 normal size atties I tried and they're not brand new but  not old either really. I was under the impression I wouldn't get more performance from the mega tank just fewer fill-ups but perhaps it's able to draw more liquid faster even if they don't vape the juice faster.

The problems with the regular tank atties may only be mine here. The device is great - I leave it set to just over half power and I get production equivalent or more to the longest hardest drag I could muster without it in less than half the drag  ;)

I've found I'm actually using the tank less- since I can get a few nice big drags quickly and put it down again.  I'd personally recommend them for whatever that's worth, even though it is a little pricey at the moment.

Got mine yesterday.  I was looking for an extra boost to my TT (with standard carts) in regards to both vapor and TH.  Basically, something similar to what you'd get with the LR atty but with more shelf life and without the occasional burnt taste.

Heres my impression:

I got my extra boost and them some.  At 90%, it seems much more powerful than a LR atty without the booster.  Additionally, I only have draw for about 2 seconds and I get a better vap and TH I normally get after 5 seconds or so without the booster.  And I got a head rush and slight buzz, something I experience only a few times a year with analogs.  I didn't experience a burnt taste.  Had a analog after hours of using the TT and booster, and than analog didn't even match - felt weak really.  Genuinely surprised and impressed with this device.  My only issue is that I wish the dial had little clicks or checkpoints along the way, not only so you know where you are, but also so it stays in place. it's really loose and turns very easily.

I also purchased the 1000Ma battery, which did make it very long.  I noticed that my old standard tornado battery worked much better than the mega, and it was quite noticeable.  Much less effort to draw and better vapor and TH with the standard battery.  Doesn't make sense to have poor production with the mega battery but it was a big difference for me.

Someone else mentioned that too.  Only thing I can figure is the standard battery has a higher discharge rate.  Don't know, just guessing.  That's a shame really since I assume these will drain a battery faster, so it would maybe be more desirable to use a larger battery on them.  I've got one waiting at home for me, so I guess I'll find out next week when I get back (I've got several standard and mega Tornado batteries I can check out with the Booster).

Funny thing when I got home I saw the mail man doing his rounds. I was standing outside waiting in the rain for him. When he was finished with the one section and started driving off to the next. He than stopped out front of my house with the package in hand and said this better be an important package for you to be standing out in the rain to wait for me. I said yes I very important one indeed. I got the package and he went back to his regular starting point for my area. I love that service. He didn't have to make a special stop to give it to me but he did. That makes up for having to wait 3 extra days that shouldn't have been. Good customer service there. Oh I forgot the booster works great and I love it.

After watching the reveiw on this product, it left me wondering what the standard voltage level for the standard tornado battery and standard tank atomizer is?

Darth - I think you will find that for Tornado/eGo devices it is 3.3v regulated

Having read all the above it does seem that the VV is the way to go...

Really not sure if to buy one or not...... On one hand it seems like a must have ... but on the other I am really happy with my tanks at the moment....both megga and standard....

What concerns me..... why buy one when I could use the money on some other shiney stuff for the same cost... ie attys,batteries.....and does it spoil you to the degree that Vaping without one looses something...

I think what I mean is that would any of you be able to be as content with your Vaping if your VV's were taken away...

Really don't know....... mind you it's special offer Friday again tomorrow..... and who knows.... Maybe VVs will be amongst them  :-\

Can you please explain the difference between what TW calls their 3.7 v Tornados and then the 3.3v unregulated?    ;D

The battery itself is a standard '3.7V' ie actually runs from about 4.2v down to about 3.2V when recharge is needed, but the circuitry regulates the output to give a constant 3.3V across almost the entire charge life.

PWM once it is under load will still deliver at 3.3v ..... a fresh 4.2v battery(mod) or other will be at the same voltage of 3.3v under load.

Under load meaning atomiser connected and what you see in performance.

Stating the Tornado as a 3.3v device is a bit deceiving...... performance wise it stacks up just as well to any standard voltage 3.7v device.

The thing is a 3.7v non PWM device will drop in performance after a short while once it loses its peak 4.2v off the charger. You lose some of the effective range of the battery when it drops significantly.... While the Tornado is a steady performer from first vape ..... to very last.


Well almost ..... the last three hits can get a little weak before the battery flash.
