DigiFlavor x The Vapor Chronicles Drop 24mm RDA

As much as I hate to admit it: I love this RDA more than any non-rebuild vape tank I’ve ever purchased. It has a great amount of airflow; the flavor is wonderful and it’s not harsh on your throat like some other RDA’s I’ve used in the past.  

I think the airflow is so profound because it’s a four-post build deck, which you don’t find a lot; it also has horizontal multi-air slots in T-Shape design, which is super badass. Usually, you just have a few holes around the RDA, but The Vapor Chronicles outdid themselves with the creativity of the “T” design.  

DigiFlavor “T” Design Creates Perfect Airflow

I’m not 100% positive it’s the “T” design in the DigiFlavor that makes the airflow so awesome, but I like to think it is. Another plus of the airflow created by the “T” is the clouds—I can’t begin to explain how fantastic these clouds are! 

I guess I’d just say if there were ever a vape competition and they were trying to find the best cloud-making RDA, I would volunteer myself to show off the DigiFlavor x The Vapor Chronicles Drop 24mm RDA—the clouds are that amazing!  

In the past, I’ve tried some of my friends RDA’s and when the RDA’s produced big clouds, the vape juice flavor was almost nonexistent.  

Yummy Tasting Vape Juice  

This is another reason I love the Drop 24mm RDA—the flavor of the juice is spot on, it’s like nothing I’ve ever tried before. I haven’t used a ton of RDA’s, but I have used many regular old vape tanks and the difference in flavor is shocking. Usually, if I were to vape on a juice longer than two weeks, I wouldn’t be able to taste it anymore. However, this is not the case with the Drop.  

I can be vaping on, Dino Bites, my favorite juice (it’s a combination of captain crunch, fruity pebbles, some sort of milk and just basically deliciousness) with the Drop RDA, and I don’t have to switch my juice for a week to be able to taste the deliciousness of Dino Bites. I can just keep vaping it without it losing flavor! Because the DigiFlavor x The Vapor Chronicles Drop doesn’t lose flavor, I don’t know if I’ll be purchasing any other RDA anytime soon!  


Harsh Throat No More!

I’ve already described how perfect the Drop is, but I have to add how it doesn’t hurt your throat. I don’t know if you have ever switched tanks/RDAs and you’ve almost gotten sick because the airflow was too strong?  

If you don’t know what I’m talking about just know that if you want to prevent the feeling of sickness, get the DigiFlavor x The Vapor Chronicles Drop.  

It sucks when you’re super stoked to try out a new RDA/Vape Tank, and then a few days in: you feel sick to the point you don’t even want to vape. I’m no doctor or vape expert but this hasn’t just happened to me. I’ve had three or four friends if I remember correctly who have had the same experience! It’s insane but as I said, if you want to prevent it, go with the Drop. 


5 Stars, 2 Thumbs-Up 

The only bad experience I’ve had with the DigiFlavor x The Vapor Chronicles Drop 24mm RDA is that I had to wait a few days for it in the mail. I can’t believe I’ve waited this long to try an RDA.  

I’m not going to lie: learning how to rebuild the coil was pretty challenging, but it was worth it because the positives heavily outweigh this little negative.  

Don’t look any further: the perfect RDA is here!  

Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3 Dual 230W Starter Kit

I give it two thumbs up and 5 stars

I started smoking cigarettes when I was very young. I wanted to fit in with the cool kids but as the years went by, I was trying medicine, hypnosis, different diets, and more to try and quit smoking cigarettes.  

Nothing seemed to work which was super crappy and I thought I was just going to be a smoker for life, until recently. I haven’t had a cigarette in a few months thanks to the Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3 Dual 230W Starter Kit. It has seriously saved my life because nothing else helped me stop smoking.  

After about a week of vaping on the Reuleaux, I was able to put the smokes down for good. It’s insane to me that I smoked for as long as I did, and I wish I would have started vaping earlier, but I’m just stoked I started in the first place.  

I was the type of person to always make fun of vapers; I didn’t understand why you would just want to tease yourself with a little bit of nicotine when you could just have a full cigarette. However, I understand now that vaping is just all around better and get why others haven’t gone back to smoking. 

My first day of vaping was great, aside than the fact I coughed after my first few hits. I guess the Wismec Reuleaux RX is just a bit powerful for beginners, but I ended up getting used to it. The guy at the vape shop did warn me on how powerful the airflow was on this box mod was pretty powerful, but I was stubborn and thought I would be able to handle it.  

Wismec Reuleaux Produces Great Flavor  

That guy at the shop ended up laughing at me after I took my first hit because I coughed so hard. Despite the coughing, the flavor of my vape juice tastes exactly like blueberry pancakes—it’s insane and I loved it.  

I used a friend’s vape pen a few years back and he told me it was vanilla ice cream, but I honestly couldn’t tell what the flavor was or if it was supposed to taste like anything, so I was shocked I could actually taste the pancakes when I hit my Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3.  

Turn It Up To 80 Watts Please 

 I’ve gotten pretty used to vaping now and I love how I can adjust the wattage on this mod because after a while I was craving a bigger cloud.  

 I started at only 40 watts and have now moved up to 80. Some days I go a little higher, while other days I go a bit lower, but the power is perfect on 80 even though the Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3 goes all the way up to 230 watts! I don’t know who could vape that high but the idea of vaping at 230 watts is pretty cool to me.  

 There is really nothing bad I can say about this mod. It’s a great set up although I would recommend something less intense for first time vapers like myself.  

 Highly Recommended the Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3 Dual 230W Starter Kit 

 It holds battery life and it fits perfectly in your hand. It isn’t too heavy which I like because now that I have other friends who vape I have held a few pretty heavy mods which makes me even more grateful to own the Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3 Dual 230W Starter Kit.  


SMOK Alien 220W TC and TFV8 Baby Beast Full Kit

I was very hesitant on buying the SMOK Alien and TFV8 starter kit because the box mod is super high tech and I’m not good with technology, at all. I’ve always had unregulated mods because I thought dealing with power adjustments would be difficult, but after a few days of using my SMOK Alien and TFV8 I have to admit, I won’t be running back to buy another unregulated mod any time soon. 

I’m really happy I have made the switch from unregulated to regulated because I can choose the wattage I want to vape on, which is super nice! I was craving a bit of a bigger cloud and I wasn’t able to achieve that with my unregulated mod. I can now also look at my SMOK Alien and tell when it is time to change my batteries because the battery life appears on the screen.  

SMOK Alien 220-Watt Battery Life  

I really enjoy that I can tell when it’s time to change my batteries because I’m a super busy person and tend to forget to change them. I’ve left the house multiple times in the past and have been without a vape because I forgot to change my batteries. However, things have changed and I’m a bit higher tech in the vaping industry now and I haven’t had low batteries since I made the switch to SMOK.  

May I also add that the battery life has lasted a lot longer with the SMOK than it has in any other mod I have purchased. Which once again, I love because I’m always on the go. Since I’m always moving from place to place, my mod always gets put in my pocket. 

About a week or two before I bought the Alien, I was at the mall with my daughter in build-a-bear and I started to smell something burning. I didn’t think anything of it until I felt burning on my leg and looked down and saw my pocket had a hole in it.  

I reached in my pocket, burnt my hand and noticed my Craving Vapor HexOhm was going off in my pocket since the parking lot.  

My mod ended up getting so hot, it melted and ruined my vape tank. I was super upset because I really enjoyed the set up I had but knew it was time for a change because it could have really hurt me, or worse, my daughter.  

After the incident of my mod trying to burn me alive, I started doing research and that’s when I chose the SMOK. I couldn’t be happier with the way the mod works and the TFV8 Beast Baby tank is amazing!  

TFV8 Beast Baby Vape Tank 

 SMOK totally knew what they were doing when they paired the SMOK Alien and TFV8 Beast Baby together. It is a dynamic duo and they really complement each other. 

 Each hit I take is full of flavor, no matter how long I’ve been vaping on the same vape juice for. If I’m craving some fruity pebbles, there is no need for the calories. I’ll just take a few drags of my vape and the craving will leave. 

 The products work fantastic and it comes with two coils, extra parts, and replacement glass- which I have already used because I’m clumsy.  

 I love the strength of the tank; the airflow is perfect and produces just the right amount of smoke. There is nothing bad I can say about this starter kit.  

 I couldn’t be happier with this purchase. SMOK did a great job and have changed my outlook on regulated box mods.  

SMOK TFV12 Prince Sub-Ohm Tank

I absolutely love the TFV12 Prince Sub-Ohm Tank. It’s been one of my best purchases since I began vaping. It gives me the utmost respect for SMOK for creating such a great device. 

I haven’t had any problem other than a bit of vape juice leakage. The leakage was due to my coil not being screwed in properly though, so it was a defect on my part. However, now that we’re on the topic of vape juice, let me tell you how fantastic the flavoring is out of the TFV12 Prince. 

 Vape Juice Flavor is on Point

Ughh. The flavoring this tank will give you is something out of a dream—it’s like I’m really eating banana pudding without the calories! Every flavor I’ve tried out of the SMOK TFV12 hasn’t let me down. However, I do recommend you let the new coil sit in juice overnight.  

I’ve primed a coil for this tank like I have with other tanks in the past and you have to wait a really long time to take a hit. If you take a rip off your box mod to soon, you’ll get a burnt flavor that won’t go away unless you change the coil. 

If you’re like me and constantly have to have your vape ready I highly recommend letting the new coil sit in juice for a few hours before you make the switch.  

What I do is get a cup and prime the coil with the vape juice over the cup. The excess juice will fall into the cup and then I place the coil in the cup overnight.  

When I wake up in the morning I’ll clean my tank and put my new primed coil in and use the juice it’s been sitting in to fill the tank, so it’s a win-win situation. Your coil will be perfectly primed, and you won’t waste any juice!  

Before you try out the coil, I would do a few dry hits on your tank first. So, suck in like you’re hitting it but without hitting the button on your mod. This will make it so your juice gets all the cotton and will ensure a perfectly primed coil!  

I know it sounds like a lot of work, but it’s totally worth it. The coil is just big and requires a lot of priming for optimum clouds!  

Dragon Like Clouds for The Win

So, I’m a total cloud chaser. I don’t like showing off my big clouds in front of people because I find it kind of silly, but a big cloud means a good hit! 

I totally need to feel the smoke in my lungs. Now that I ‘ve typed that, is sounds pretty unhealthy but I guess it’s better than going back to cigarettes.  

Anyway, since I was a cigarette smoker for so long, I still need a good burn in the lungs to be satisfied. There is no problem achieving the burn with the TFV12. When I get a good burn, I get a big cloud which makes me happy!  

 TFV12 Will Not Let You Down

The SMOK TFV12 Prince Sub-Ohm Tank is perfect. I love the taste of the juice and big clouds it produces. It also looks great on my mod which is a huge plus!  

I recommend this sub-ohm tank to all vapers, new and old. As long as you prime to coil well, you won’t be let down!  

The Rokin Cyclone Dab Pen

I needed a dab pen that I could take on the road with me when I traveled and found the Rokin Cyclone. This vape starter kit was affordably priced at less than $100 and came with everything I needed to start dabbing right away.  

 The Cyclone Is Designed for Long-Term Use 

The Cyclone features an all metal construction and the leak resistant atomizers make it great for travel and durability. The pen is available in multiple colors including matte black, rose gold, and gunmetal.  

I found that the battery life, although rechargeable, is not as long as with some other pens I’ve tried, it did work well for my needs. It can be charged with a USB charger so that I could easily charge it when I was in my hotel room or traveling in a car, so it’s not all too bad and is very convenient. 

Designed for Discreet Use 

The small design of the Cyclone allows it to almost completely fit into your hand for discreet use. The dab pen has a single light on the R button, to ensure that you’re not attracting attention to yourself when using it. Also, the smell of the vapors dissipates very quickly so that you can use it anywhere that you want, very discreetly.  

The Cyclone is Designed for Easy Use

The Cyclone is a great dab pen for starters; it’s easy to fill and use and has a waterless vapor cooling feature so that there is not hard work that has to be done to get a great experience.  

The pen has four different voltage settings so that you can make the pen as harsh or mild as you want it to be. I found that the vapor can be harsh on the higher voltage settings though. I try to stick to the mid-range settings to ensure that my throat doesn’t hurt after vaping.  

The vape pen also has a ten-second auto shut off function to ensure that the pen cannot go off accidentally. This is great for times when I throw the pen into my bag and forget to turn it off.  

 Enjoyable to Use 

I’ve found that the Cyclone is very enjoyable to use—it provides rich flavor and smooth hits if it’s used on a low to midrange setting. The pen produces optimal amounts of vapors thanks to the four chambers located at the top of the chamber and the ceramic mouthpieces feel good in the mouth.  

It recharges quickly but does start to create weaker amounts of vapor as the battery dies. It has a very basic design which makes it easy to maintain and all of the parts that you would need to make it work as well as possible for as long as possible are easy to find and affordable to purchase.  

Overall, I feel that the Cyclone is a great dab pen to have around. 

The Smokjoy Honor Mod; Great Mech Mod to Invest In

After vaping for a few months, I knew I was ready to move into an advanced form of vaping. I decided to invest in a mech mod because I knew that it would have the features that I was wanted. I decided to buy a Smokjoy Honor Resin Mech Mod. Below are some of the pros and cons I found about this particular mod.  

The Smokjoy Honor Mod is Visually Unique

I wanted to have a mod that would stand out from the crowd and the Honor Mod fit the bill. It’s made with a resin exterior that’s unique to each mod. To ensure that uniqueness, each mod has a serial number. The kit has resin on both the mod and the fire button and includes a matching resin drip tip. It’s available in a variety of colors too. 

The Smokjoy Honor is Easy to Use 

I have found that some vape pens are difficult to use because they require so much strength to depress the fire button. The Honor mod doesn’t have this problem; it’s easy to press because it is spring loaded.  

While the Honor mod doesn’t have a lock on the fire button, it doesn’t fire on its own. The fire button is recessed so that it only fires when you press it intentionally. This cuts down on the likelihood of the mod firing while it is being carried in a pocket or purse.  

The Honor Mod Lasts a Long Time

The Honor mod has no circuitry inside, meaning that it can’t short circuit. The materials are long-lasting, and the upkeep is minimal to the mod. If the mod becomes wet, you can simply allow it to dry out and then use it the same way you would as if it had never gotten wet at all. The parts are easy to take apart and finding replacements when needed is not difficult at all. 

Does Have Some Negatives

While there are many great features to the Honor mod, there are also a few negatives too. The mod has no safety features built into it. Some mech mods have safety features built into them that make it impossible for the fire button to be depressed without unlocking it first. The Honor mod doesn’t have any such feature.  

Also, I found that the mod goes through batteries extremely quickly, which is a bit annoying when I was out and about, and the batteries died. It’s not overly expensive though as I paid less than $40 for my Honor mod and I feel it was worth the investment.  

I found that the mech mod works very well. I like that the strength isn’t regulated and that I can get a full pull when I vape. I also like the fact that it’s easy to use and I don’t have to do a lot of work to maintain it.  

It’s not hard to fill, and the vape tank is large enough to hold plenty of vape juice to get me through the day without having to refill it. I’m glad I waited to get the mod until I had already used another vape so that my lungs were ready for that intense pull the Honor mod makes.

Geek Vape Zeus Dual RTA

I wanted to try an RTA and saw that the Geek Vape Zeus Dual RTA had high ratings and was priced at less than $30, which is a bonus already. After trying it out, however, I definitely feel that this is a great RTA for experienced vapers, but not for a novice. Once I figured out how to use it properly, it was great, but it was difficult to set up and use in the beginning. Below is a more comprehensive guide about the Geek Vape Zeus Dual RTA.  


The RTA Included a Nice Manual

The Zeus RTA came with a really nice manual; it included pictures that made it easy to identify the different parts and directions on how to properly use it. Being able to see the parts identified in the picture made it easier to put the major components together at first.  


Didn’t Have the Coils Installed 

When I first brought the RTA home, I found out that the coils weren’t already installed. The one’s that were included in the pack were longer than they needed to be, so I had to figure out how to trim them and then install them into the device. The manual doesn’t walk you through this part of the process, so I had to search online for videos that told me what to do.  

It took some time to figure it out, but once I did, it wasn’t overly difficult to do. The Geek Vape Zeus Dual RTA only includes two coils, so I made sure to only trim off a little bit at a time to ensure that I didn’t trim them too short and end up making them unusable.   


Comes with Multiple Drip Tips 

A notable feature of the Geek Vape Zeus RTA is that it comes with varying sizes of drip tips. I love this feature because there are times when I prefer a larger drip tip than most people and having the option to change it out as needed was great. There was an adapter included so that I could change between sizes with ease. 


This RTA Isn’t Easy to Fill

One thing I don’t like about the RTA is that it’s not easy to fill. The fill holes are located on the top of the device, but they’re somewhat small. I found that the easiest way to fill it was to use a bottle with a needlepoint tip.  

It’s designed to hold 4ml of vape juice at a time, but there is an optional bubble glass that can be purchased separately so it can hold more when needed. An extra piece of glass is included in case the one that is on it breaks.  


Available in Many Colors

I liked the fact that the RTA is available in many different colors including black, silver, gunmetal, and blue. This allows me to easily identify my RTA even when I am with a group of people who are vaping.  

Overall, I like this RTA; it’s just generally great vape starter kit. I definitely wouldn’t recommend it for people just starting out, however, but if you are experienced with setting up an RTA, this is a great one for the money.  

SMOK X-Priv 225W Starter Kit is a Good Beginner Kit

The SMOK X-Priv 225W is one of the newer releases of vapes for SMOK. It’s very affordable and came with just about everything I needed to get started. I did find some issues with the vape along the way, though. 

The X-Priv Didn’t Include Batteries 

The X-Priv is rechargeable once you have the batteries in it, but they’re not included with the vape starter kit. It uses 18650 batteries that can be bought online or in store, but it can be a bit of a hassle if you wanted to use the vape as soon as it arrives.  

The battery life is displayed clearly on the screen so that I can know when it is time to charge it. To replace batteries, the battery cover easily removes thanks to the four magnets holding it in place. This is ideal for me—and everyone for that matter—since I don’t have a ton of tools lying around to use to remove the cover.  

The X-Priv Holds a Lot of Vape Juice

The X-Priv comes with a bubble glass tank that can hold 8 milliliters of vape juice at a time, which is much more in comparison to other vape pens on the market. I love this feature because I don’t have to refill the pen very often, which is great for busy work days.  

The kit includes one piece of bubble glass and one piece of traditional glass for times when you want to have less liquid in the tank. The tank can easily be filled as needed, thanks to the swivel drip tip design; the tip simply swivels to the side and an open chamber in the center of the tank is revealed. You then pour in your vape juice and fill it until it’s full.   

The X-Priv Has Completely Adjustable Function 

I enjoy that the vape pen can be adjusted in many different ways to create a customized experience every time I use it. The adjustable airflow switch at the bottom of the tank allows me to adjust the airflow with ease.  

Multiple coils are included so that I can use the SMOK X-Priv at different wattages and get the perfect smooth hit each time. The display on the unit also has a place where I can adjust how strong the hit is when I vape; I can choose soft, medium, or hard vape strength for optimum vaping at all times. 

The X-Priv is Easy to Use

The best part about the X-Priv is that it’s so easy to use. It can easily be turned on and off with a few clicks of the fire button. The large, bright LED screen allows you to track how soon the battery needs to be charged, the voltage, the puff counter, and the puff timer. This allows you to determine how you can adjust the pen to the exact settings that are great for you.  

I’ve really enjoyed this vape pen and am glad that I bought it. It came with everything that I needed to get started except for the batteries. I have used it with a few different juices and have been more than happy with every use.  

Falcon Tank by Horizon Tech; Affordable and Durable

When I went out one night, I put my vape in my back pocket and forgot about it. It fell when I went to use the restroom and the tank broke beyond repair. I needed to replace the tank and decided to invest in a new model. I had heard great things about the Falcon Sub-OHM Tank by Horizon Tech, so I gave it a try, and I’m so glad I did too. 


The Falcon Tank Available in Many Colors 

I really liked the fact that the Falcon Tank had such an eye-catching exterior—the finish had a shiny metallic look to it. It was available in a few different colors, but I ultimately chose the rainbow finish because it fits my girly personality well.  


The Falcon is the Perfect Size

The 25.2 mm tank is perfect for just about any vape that I have. It doesn’t hang over the sides and make it uncomfortable to vape. It also has a 5 mL juice capacity, which, while is ample to me, but if I wanted, there is an optional bubble glass extension that I can buy if I want to add another 2 milliliters to the amount it can hold. It also comes with replacement glass in case I break one. 


Provides Smooth, Easy Vaping 

I love that the tank comes with two different types of coils. It has the traditional cotton coil and a mesh option. I prefer mesh coils so that is what I have been using and found the draw to be smooth. I can taste the flavor of the vape juice really well.  

With some tanks, I can taste cotton, but not with this one. I also like the cloud production that it creates. I can use the tank in competitions with ease because there is so much smoke that’s created. 


The Price  is Great 

The vape tank is very reasonably priced especially for everything you get with it. Unlike some other tanks, it’s also very easy and affordable to find replacement parts for when they’re needed. I personally like this because the coils need to be changed every so often and being able to find them with ease is essential.  


Drawbacks to the Falcon Tank

While just about everything is great about this tank, there are a few drawbacks to it. First of all, it’s noisy; you aren’t going to be able to use this discreetly when you are around other people. The noise isn’t so loud that it’ll stop you from using it, but it is noisy enough that there is no way to hide the fact that you’re using it.  

The kit includes two different drip tips: one is a colorful option, while the other has a black finish. While I like the colors and the style of the drip tips, I didn’t like the way that they felt when I used the tank. They were too large in my opinion, but I was able to easily swap it out with another drip tip that I was fond of, so it really wasn’t a big deal to me.  

Overall, I would say this is a good option for someone who wants to replace their current vape tank. It’s affordably priced, works well and is easy to use. So far, it’s proven to be very durable and easy to clean when needed.  

The Best Sub-Ohm Tanks

There are hundreds of different sub-ohm tanks in the market now. Every season you will get to see new sub-ohm tanks and find the best ones can be pretty challenging. If you’re looking for one, we have a list of top 5 best vape tanks on the market right now. Each of these sub ohm tanks has different key features that will benefit you. 


Freemax Fireluke Mesh; Leader of Mesh Revolution 

Freemax has been known to be one of the leaders in the revolution of mesh. With their specifications, there is no doubt that Freemax Fireluke Mesh is also one of the best sub-ohm tanks out there. It comes with the nice quality of design and smooth threading.  

The ports are wide-filled, and it has no leaking. You get the options to choose from different color options and between resin, steel, or carbon fiber. The production of vapor is excellent, and it provides amazing flavors. It also comes with superior coil longevity and the pack includes matching 810 resin drip tip. However, in order to replace coil heads, you’ll need to empty the tank.  


Vaporesso Cascade; Provider of a Variety of Flavors

First of all, Vaporesso Cascade will not look right on smaller box mods. So, you have to make sure of that before purchasing this. Other than that, this sub-ohm tank is definitely worth every penny. It has a 7mL capacity and an innovative design.  

If you’re looking for an easy sliding top fill with many options of coils, this is your best product. It provides tons of airflow and no leakage. This sub-ohm tank will allow you to vape up to 200 watts if you wish to push your limits. It’s also compatible with anything from the GT coil group because of its adapter. This also means that you’ll get a great range of flavors! 


Horizon Falcon; Producer of Good Cloud Formation 

The difference between Falcon and the rest of sub-ohm tanks under the same brands is that the manufacturer doesn’t just use the typical organic cotton in its production. They also make a good use of other types of materials in order to improve the flavors. With this being said, Falcon produces a good cloud formation and it has amazing flavors. The longevity of the coil is also good, and it can hold up to 5mL of vape juice. The diameter of this sub-ohm tank is 25.2mm and has big bottom slots of airflow and two huge top fill ports. 


Aspire Cleito Exo; Tank with Strong and Flexible Design

This sub-ohm tank has a resilient design that is TPD compliant. It also has big airflow slots and still accepting the original Cleito coils of 0.2 and 0.4 ohms. Each package will include a spare drip tip.  

However, the cons of using this tank are that the airflow is non-adjustable. You’ll also need to often refill if you are using EXO coils. The tank can hold up to 3.5mL and the size is 23.5mm large.  


Get the Most Out of Your Vape Tank

Some of the suggestions to get the best results when using your sub-ohm tank includes breaking in the coil head gradually and priming the coil head before your very first use. Whenever you are vaping, make sure you have paper towels or tissues. All the leaked and spilled e-liquid can be pretty messy. Whenever necessary, always remember to replace the coil head and rebuild the coil head if you are capable of doing so.
