Vaping Ain't Easy

Don't get me wrong, I love to vape. But I do miss the convenience of analogs. Every corner store carries your brand, it's easy to bum a smoke from a friend or even get a light from a stranger. Vaping isn't that easy.. Today I replaced the coil in my atlantis before leaving home for the day. I suppose I should've tested it before I left the house but I haven't had a stock coil fail yet. So about a hour away from home I pulled my sx mini out of my lunch box and was looking forward to a vape. But it gave me an error, check atomizer. So I unscrewed the tank and double checked the coil was snug to the base and no moisture was under the coil. I also checked the floating pin on my sx mini and everything seems good n clean. Still I get the message, check atomizer.. Sooo frustrating because I'm a hour away from home with no backup vape and no extra coil.. I broke down and had a terrible death stick. Couldn't even finish it due to taste and smell. It's just not my vape. Anyways no one else at my work vapes so I had to vent to some other fellow vapors.. I can't wait to get home and get another coil!!  

3 Years

I'm not here that often so I thought I'd post this anniversary even though I have 6 days to go. Close enough.
43000+ cigarettes not smoked. Vape on.  

I Made It A Year !!!!

So today I would like to thank the following people who not only started me on this journey, but who have supported me through what I feel was 1 of the best things that could have happened to me:
1. Gary Greener - You gave me my 1st set up for free an egoCtwist battery & Kanger Pro tank
2. Dylan Hill - You have been in my corner from Day 1- through up grades & bringing me to the BEST B&M to get juices & knowledge & for Building me Coils bc to be honest I'm just to lazy to build them lol
3. Maja Flava Vape Den 44 East Scott Street Riverside NJ - You guys have been AMAZING!!! Between all the time you've spent with me explaining vaping, mods, juices, coils, coil building, support, & Even more I can't Thank You Enough!! The vape community & people I've now become friends with from your store is incredible & with out you I wouldn't have been able to stay off the cigarettes.
4. ECF Forum - Thanks for having this forum!! The support, knowledge, & experience of the forum is so much more then I could have imagined.
THANK YOU ECF FORUM COMMUNITY TO EACH & EVERYONE OF YOU GUYS ON HERE HAS HELPED AS WELL!!

HERE'S TO MANY MORE YEARS OFF THOSE BUTTS & CLOUD CHASING DREAMS!!

THANK YOU ALL!!  

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.


 

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...  

Again With The Batteries

Me again with battery questions

I ordered and paid for Samsung 25Rs from my local vape shop. They just informed me that they made a mistake and that battery is not currently available, and have offered me these as replacement:

Sony VTC5

Sony VTC4

LG HE2

LG HE4

Should i take any of these or should i wait for the samsungs to become available again? (who knows when that will be)

I'm leaning towards the VTC5 just looking for some confirmation from you guys that that is the right choice !

Oh and i should mention, the top wattage i will be hitting is 30w and i do not sub ohm.
Thanks!  

Buying A New Mod, Suggestions?

My Vape Connexx 150w mod finally died on me after countless chip errors and the buttons caving in on themselves. This is the third mod I've had break on me, so that's why I'm asking you all for suggestions. My max price is $90/USD (that's the refund I'll be getting for my mod). Now I usually vaped around 40-60 watts, builds about .2ohms-.9ohms and what have you. I like the looks of something hefty and bulky, sleek and modern/futuristic or wood mod. I'd prefer something that will fire down to .1ohms, interchangeable batteries (HATE fixed batteries), 50-260 watts and RELIABLE. I'm tired of them breaking on me, so I'd prefer y'all give further suggestion due to my bad luck with mods, but with the information given, what could y'all suggest? I'd appreciate anything.

Side note: I'd rather not order from Fasttech or something like that, making me wait a month until my mod gets here.  

I'm Back!!!

Hey guys and gals!! I've been a member here for a long time but I ended up going back to analogs for a while but now I'm back and very glad to see how the vaping community has grown so much.

When I left, RDAs were just getting popular but most rebuildable fans used genesis attys and hybrids. The community was no where near where it is today!

My brother just gave me a Sigelei 100w and a couple panasonic 18650's to get me off analogs and I dusted off my Opus D (DNA20). Also, just got a Kanger Subtank Nano in the mail.

I'm amazed, actually. When I went back to analogs the newest tank out was the protank 2 (I think). I'm glad to see how far we, as a community, have come.

I'm ordering supplies to start a custom Mod build so keep an eye out in the modders forum!!

Vape on!

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?
