Ants

Here's something I noticed the other day. I was sitting at the patio table blowing my cloud at the table trying to make it look like a cool foggy table when I noticed the ants would stop and wipe their antennas. I've blown my cloud directly at ants several times since and they always wipe their antennas. It's like something in the vapor cloud messes with their antennas for some reason. Anyway, something to do when your bored.

Using Nic Gum While Flying

I'm going to be taking an 8 hour flight next month and I've decided to abandon my idea of stealth vaping, as the rewards are just not worth the risk in my opinion, if something were to happen and if it was discovered. I don't want to be the subject of a news headline "Unruly vaper causes flight to be diverted. Flight boarded by seven sheriff deputies with a SWAT team standing by as backup."

Has anybody ever used nicotine gum before? I was thinking about getting a small pack of gum and using that instead. At least that is not forbidden. I've never tried nicotine gum before, but I noticed that it comes in 2 mg and 4 mg. I'm not sure how that relates to nicotine mg in e juice, but I'll just get a small pack of the 4 mg I guess.

Does anybody else use Nicotine gum sometimes, like when flying?  

Vapor Jedi?

I am planning on buying my new Little Boy rda by mcv and the only website with it is Vapor Jedi is it trust worthy? If anyone has bought from this website, and if so, should I buy my RDA off of it?  

Curiouser And Curiouser...

Hey all! I was just sitting here at my computer scrounging around the web while taking drags off of my "Go-To" vaping setup (Cignot), and it hit me! I use this setup FAR more than I do the ones that I have a lot of money invested in. Is there anyone else that does this, or am I just strange? I mean, I know I'm strange, but I mean about the preference of the less fancy/expensive unit over the other. It makes me wonder if I just haven't taken the time with the other that is necessary.  

Vaping As A Smoking Cessation Tool Does Not Work

I'm off and on with vaping. Today I'm trying to vape to replace cigaretts. So why am I complaining? I have less than 1/4 tank of juice, which is almost doable, but now all of a sudden my ecig is barely hitting. It never does that! Vaping is just too difficult. With cigaretts, you just flip the top and know that you are good. If not, you can stop anywhere and refill. I don't have my personal, tolarable juice mixture here with me at work, so I can refill and make this work. No, I have less than a 1/4 tank of juice to get me through more than a 12 hour day.

Sorry. everytime I give it a go to get off of cigaretts, I run into these similar issues. And it's not often that I give it a real go, so it's double frustrating. It's not like "oh well, just try again tomorrow".  

From Cigs To Vaping... Help Please

I have been vaping for about a month, and am still dealing with bad throat irritation. I have a 50w istick with an Atlantis tank. Using 3mg juices, normally vaping at about 3.5-3.8v. Changed coil about a week ago.

I find vaping hit and miss. Sometimes I take a bunch of drags and it's smooth and tastes great, big clouds. Other times (especially in the morning) I take even a small hit and I'm coughing up a lung. I take even one hit in the morning and for a few hours my throat is dry, stuffy and irritated. I am pretty active, and I drink plenty of water. I don't think it's me, I think the tank is sometimes giving me smooth good tasting vape but other times it comes out incredibly harsh, and I can't explain why. Is it normal the first 10 hits or so in the morning are that harsh? it seems as though every morning I have a sore throat because of it. Even in general I just feel stuffier, and is since going from a pack of cigs a day to 1-2 cigs a day and vaping.

Any advice or ideas?  

Let's Be Honest, Smoking Cigarettes Is Far Cheaper Than Vaping!

I am new here and I am surely not the type to stir the pot, but something is bothering me. I see all these members with banners at the bottom explaining how much money they have saved thus far by not smoking, and vaping instead? I just have to shake my head and wonder what planet they come from.

Ten years ago I purchased a top of the line cigarette injector for $25. That same injector costs $35 right now, and it has been highly improved. I can buy top quality bulk tobacco wholesale on the internet, top quality filtered cigarette tubes, and produce world class cigarettes for just about $1.25 per pack. A few years ago it was less than a $1.00 per pack. These are first class top quality cigarettes, better than anything you can buy in any store. You can make them in any style or strength you like, regular or menthol.

A fumble fingered klutz with no practice can pump out one cigarette every 30 seconds, I can do 5 or 6 per minute, and I am kind of a klutz myself! I know poor people and rich people who make cigarettes this same way. Who still buys cigarettes in stores for $5 to $10 per pack? Seriously, who does that? Certainly not anyone with an IQ above 75.

Don't tell me it would have been to difficult for you to do, because messing with Mods, and e-juice, and batteries is far more time consuming and difficult than pumping out cigarettes on a tube injector. So my former habit cost me $1.25 per day for a pack. I can already tell that I will be burning far more than $1.25 in e-juice daily.

All I am saying is that vaping is more expensive than smoking for anyone with common sense, so stop bragging about how much money you saved, that is disingenuous. Brag about why you are doing it for your health.

One Stop Reference Shop For New And Experienced Vapers

As a new Vaper myself, I spent hours upon hours searching for this information. Many questions were asked and many links were given to me. Those links, and question answers are all here. This is a list for basic direction, but does include some liquid discussion, supplier discussion, etc. This is designed for the basic over and over again questions with the same links usually provided, but just put in one place easy to find. I tried as hard as I could to credit the author of each link. None of this information is my own, but rather a compilation from mostly ECF, but a few from around the web.

I hope this helps some folks out.

Huge THANK YOU to all the people who took the time to make this information available to us all.

You Guys Set Juice Rules?

Just curious how you guys go about vaping through your juice bottles. I buy 30 ml bottles usually. I have a few tanks and dedicate a specific bottle to each tank. I make myself finish off a bottle before I go onto my next juices. If I decide to put a half bottle away and try a new flavor, I'd have a bunch of half bottles laying around and it would annoy the hell out of me.
I have a couple 60 mils on the way though, so I suppose I wouldn't mind stashing those halfway through. I suppose it could be way different for people that drip though.  

Where Do You Buy A Reo Mod?

I have heard good things about reo mods. However, when I look it up online I can't see where I can buy one. Can somebody help me find a vendor that sells them? Thanks in advance.

What's Everyone's Favorite 50w Mod?

I'm looking for an inexpensive box mod to carry around and wanted to know what everyone's opinion was.

I'm looking for something fairly small, spring loaded pin, removable battery... And looks good lol

So i'm looking at the smy 50w right now but wanted to get some other opinions.  

Your Opinions On Cellucotton

Hello ECF,

What Kind Of Wire Should I Be Using?

Hey all, I was just wondering, I've seen a few people talk about using A1 kanthal? Im not too sure what im using, but i know its 24guage kanthal. If im just making .2-.8 ohm builds, on a stingray x and I also have a voltage regulated box mod. whats the safest/best wire to use?

Vapors Fatigue

I'm looking for ways to get over vapors fatigue aka vapors tongue. I'm currently using a mint breath spray and it works ok-ish. What are you guys using?  

How Much Juice In A Week?

Hey guys I'm just wondering, how much juice would you estimate you go through in a week!  

Doh!

Was hitting a very hot build hard, got a dryish hit, even a bit of cotton smolder. So I quickly whipped off the top cap and started painting some juice. I touched the tip of my juice bottle onto the hot coil and melted a bit onto it. Worse, I didn't realize till I took a big ol' hit...not the tastiest vape I've ever had.

Kanthal is cheap, experience is priceless.


 

What Would You Call This Build?

Wondering if this coil has been created before and what it's called or what you might call it if it's not already "titled" a certain coil

It's twisted 26 gauge space Clapton'd then flat ******* between spacing... any thoughts?  

Temperature Control On Rda Clone

Wondering if its possible/safe to use temperature control on a RDA clone? Because clones don't use peek insulator or does that not matter?

Watts And Voltage.

vaparroos,

so here is a chart: http://i.imgur.com/6oraBGI.png

this charts says if i have a 1.2 ohm in my kanger subtank that i can vape at 6.0 volts at 30 watts and be ok, but i know that is not the case...

when i'm vaping at 1.2 ohm at 3.8 votls its ok, but i'm in the orange too...why am i still in the orange at 6 volts?

hope that makes sense...
