P.S. FAO Forum admin, this MTL section is the only general interest subforum here that requires a log in to view, all the rest eg Beginners, General etc can be viewed without a log in. Maybe open this one up for Joe Public? Classic (MTL) Vaping style is prob the next most important for smokers to see after the beginners area ?
Strange as the permissions were set to everyone John . . . . I've refreshed and re-saved them just to be sure.
As to your question, I did succumb eventually to a Zlide - having resisted it's lure for a time, some things just have a certain inevitability though!
I like it, it's super simple to use/replace coils/ refill . . . . there's a decent range of airflow settings, I have mine fully open as I like an ' airy ' MTL draw.
The only negative I've found is that the coils don't last especially long ( I only use around 13watts depending on coil age ) but that could be due to the eliquid I'm using - a vanilla custard blend, although it's not especially sweet. 20ml is about what I can put through these coils before the taste peaks right off, which going by my experience with other Innokin tanks/coils isn't great. So I'll be interested to compare with other flavours when I've finished this one.
I think you're right that it is Hangsen Deluxe Tobacco, although it says 'Hangda' on the bottle. But I've definitely had Hangsen before and it seems to be the same stuff to me? I have searched UK suppliers, but the problems are that the prices are so comparatively high and also that they are bound by silly (in my opinion) EU rules, i.e fiddly little 10ml bottles and unable to supply 24mg.
I was kind of hoping to find a way around these issues but I guess it's just one of those things and a sign of the times?
Yes, one work around is to buy the concentrate and mix your own mazz - we'd guide you through it.
72mg nicotine base is still available if you look in the right places.
This didn't seem too bad a deal for 200ml ( just decant all those pesky 10ml bottles into something larger ) . . . . although 18mg is the highest strength allowed under the TPD. Might be an opportunity to have a go reducing your nic strength perhaps?
The best advice any of us can give you is to avoid if at all possible, or only order if you're in no rush for the item(s) as you've to be prepared for a wait . . . . most likely a long one. China might be open for business, but it's far from the normal we know.
I placed an order with them last week for a vaping friend and I'm anticipating at least a two month wait if not longer - any quicker will be a bonus. Although I used British Express Shipping, which is an option you don't have with eliquid.
Could be Hangsen your Deluxe Tobacco so it might be worthwhile googling for any UK suppliers of the flavour.
I'll start by saying I'm perfectly happy with all the equipment I use - because they work for me, might be old hat now. But ce la vie!
However you know how it is for some of us, there's that itch which surfaces every so often which sparks a yen to try something different and a little more current . . . I spotted in FogWorks clearance a Freemax Fireluke mesh coil tank, only about a fiver I think it was. As I get on really well with my Isub's Plex coils, it was an opportunity to try a tank designed specifically for mesh coils.
My order duly arrived and I congratulated myself for picking up a marvellous bargain as the tank is really attractive and well made. After the first tank full of eliquid dumped itself, I wasn't quite so smitten . . . . then I realised I'd filled it with the airflow open and not all tanks like that, so undaunted I filled up again with the A/F closed. Cue tank dump number two - this tank is the leakiest I've ever owned or used. I thought modern(ish) ones were better than that - not so here and I see why it was so greatly reduced, especially after reading of other users experience with it.
Such a shame as the coils are terrific and the flavour from them just brilliant after the couple of puffs I got to try.
So I started doing a little more research on mesh coil tanks, the Fireluke 2 seemed to get favourable reviews and what I liked about it was the suggested wattage range - I can't stand a ' hot ' vape, with throat hit, it just doesn't work for my own style of vaping - using 60+ watts.
Hoping that issues with the original had been ironed out, I took the plunge and ordered the Fireluke 2 on Ebay from a Seller who was offering a ' Fat Boy ' glass in with the deal ( 2ml tanks really are a waste of time at higher watts. )
Got it all set up yesterday and I have to say I'm delighted, although it's not quite so snazzy looking as the Fireluke 1, in my humble opinion. But! It doesn't leak - hurray, is a doddle to fill, using a very similar slide top as Innokin's Zlide, there's no need either to remove the drip tip and with a new coil 37watts is ample for me - although it has the capacity for greater performance.
Hippy hoppy happy birthday. Hope you're growing your hair!
Growing it?... more like tripping up on it!
That did make me laugh Dave . . . . or should that be Rapunzel!
My hairdresser doesn't open until the 4th July and the earliest I've been able to get an appointment for is the 18th July - I have this vision of hoards of stampeding women descending on salons around the country once their hairdressers re-open! We've to wear our own masks, which is fine as I'm used to working now in a mask/visor/gloves . . . and to queue outside as only so many clients will be allowed in at any one time. Again fine - it's become the new ' normal ' in our lives these restrictions ( not that I enjoy them anymore than the next person does. )
Did you have your Lockdown Social Distancing Birthday BBQ?
A couple of friends came round to me last night, we were very good - their respective husbands brought them round/collected them, our chairs were strategically placed in the garden . . . . we all tucked into some vino, put the world to rights - as you do. Then I staggered off to get us all some fish and chips - had a lovely evening, we've been so fortunate with the weather!
Just for a couple of hours it was a real pleasure to escape all of the 'stuff '.
Shipping is also free on all orders, no matter the value.
While you may not want to go down the full on mixing route again, perhaps ' Shortfills ' could provide a slightly less costly option than buying all pre-made. Pared back explanation, a shortfill is generally a 60ml bottle, filled with 40 or 50ml of concentrate/PG/VG . . . . then all you need to do is add one or two nicotine shots and you're done.
