Pros: outstanding instant convection vapor, rugged build, coil & mod compatibility, easy cleaning, indefinite lifetime (with coil replacements), low cost of upkeep, adjustable airflow, customizable settings through coils & mods, multiple glass stem & adapter options. Cons: not easy setup for beginners, original glass stem doesn't cool vapor enough, not pocket friendly (depends on the stem and mod, the stealthy stem and aegis solo mod for example, are compact), requires separate mod (pro and con). The Stempod Si is great for those looking for a solid vape with room to mess around with. There aren't any entirely premade settings, it depends on which mod & coils you choose. My current setup is the voopoo drag mod in SS temperature control mode with clapton coils. Wattage mode with the included coils works great as well. Compared to the RBT splinter, there are more options in terms of customization, but not in terms of simplicity. I would highly recommend the cooling stem found on the MPL site for comfortable hits. I find the best grind comes from the Santa Cruz Shredder. Cleaning is a breeze, just soak all components aside from the build deck and stem in warm water. The stems can be cleaned by adding iso, holding both ends with your fingers, giving it a good shake, then rinsing it out. Compared to the dynavap, the hits aren't as dense but extract the terps and flavor extremely well. The setup is great for taking either smaller flavorful hits, or larger rips depending on your wattage and fire time. Coils generally last at least one to three months depends on use and wattage. They take some trial and error at first, but you can experiment to see which type you prefer. Generally larger coils will give you more even AVB but take slightly longer to heat up. Make sure to gently strum the coils with the hex tool after installing them to ensure even heat up from the center outwards.
