If I bought every "New, Improved, Massive Air Flow, Quad Coil, Juice Burner" Reviewers love this week then I'm fairly certain my life would improve, I'd lose 20years, 6" from my waistline and my sexlife would leave me exhausted.
Now that's what I'm talking about! Sign me up...........
Oh... you say it may not happen, no quad coil, nor massive air flow and you can't improve your sex life, then why would I do it? The 6" from my waistline sounds good though, sign me up!
Keep trying with the Kraken womble Its a really good vape when you get it to work. Takes patience but its worth it in the end. Its not totally sub ohming these days although it does seem to be the new best thing. Although I have far too much new sub ohm setups when i really want to sit and chill out I find nothing comes close to my trusty old Kayfun lite plus or an Ithaca. Horses for courses and each has its place.
I know erik, that's whats so annoying, I know it will be great when it works, I almost had it a couple of times. I suppose the bad thing thing is that when it works, I feel that it's so old in the timeline of vaping, I'll feel that something else is better out there. Too many different wicks to try, ecowool, Japanese cotton..... other stuff I haven't heard of, ceramic, did that take off?
Hiya womble long time, no see! Lots of new gear on the scene, confusing even for me watching the lightning fast changes!
I'm still swapping and changing vape gear just like Perps, so whatever works best is fine by me though I favour mtl style i'll give most things a try.. haha
Hi Pepperty! Changes were happening fast 3 years ago when I was a part of the vaping community, now it feels like I'm a "forever young"(disclaimer, younger viewers may not understand this) vaper, returning to the fold But some of you guys have kept up with it, like you and perps and fairplay to you, you'll give most things a try, like you said. As I said to Mrs Womble No 7 and 8, if you'd only give most things a try, we wouldn't be in this mess. Mrs Womble (presumptive) No 9, has been informed, we await the outcome.
Hi tsoko, I know, it's all slightly tongue in cheek tbh.
It is amazing, I see vaping all over the place now, when I used to see a vaper a few years ago, I'd go up to them and have a chat, now people think you are slightly nuts I haven't changed, vaping has.
Is everyone using subohm tanks now? I have tried to work it out from forum postings, but it seems difficult to get a grip on.
I think it's quite a high percentage on here as subohming helps to reduce the amount of nicotine in juices. A few years ago it was the norm for 18-24mg nic in juice, now it's more like 6mg. I have reduced from 24mg to 3mg and in my own mixes I'm down to 2mg. It all helps with the TPD and the future availability of nicotine in large quantities.
Thanks for the info, that is amazing. I have a severe amount of reading to catch up on. I'm still on 18mg myself.
I'm sure a couple of very old members will remember me, I used to be here a few years ago and although I carried on vaping (still am) I lost the will to continue it as a hobby.
So what happened was, I hit on the thing that worked for me and just used it.
My setup is/was, an 18650 Provari with a RSST genesis tank, with a SS rope covered with SS mesh (top to bottom), the air hole was drilled out to I can't remember what size on the RSST, (I thought that was daring). Four wraps of .25 kanthal wire and some type of tobacco juice.
Since then I've tried a couple of variable mods, but always came back to the Provari. I was (and am) happy with the RSST, I fill the tank, then drip on the wick different flavours of juice, different ones, but always tobacco based. I find the dripping helps with the flavour and changing juices (with dripping) stops me getting bored of one juice. Always juices that complimented each other though, no good dripping a pineapple juice on a tobacco tankful!. I used to have to clean out the tank frequently (as it used to go black) and fire the wick/new coil, then I worked out that cleaning the wire/wick with a kitchen paper towel every little while, took the worst off the wick and expanded the life by several times. This may have something to do with the juices I use, alot of sugar or something.
A while ago I got a Kanger submini setup, tank and 18650 mod, I hated the freeflow airiness of the tank, but the mod was good, the tank also suffered from the thing I hated before about pre brought coils, they went off taste really quickly and gunked up in a day or two.
I decided enough was enough and this old dinosaur would have to come into the new world of ecigs, only to find that everyone was talking about and almost only available, was subohm tanks, which you had to lung inhale and had a complete through flow of air. Didn't like it. I've tried a few friends ones (expensive) and still don't like them
So... I bought a Vicious Ant Kraken 1.2, I thought I'd get it before the TPD came in and I thought the bigger tanks would be hard to get, I've tried an evening to get this beauty set up, but its defeating me at the moment. Compared to the RSST, it's hard
This is how I feel today............
Old, very OLD ..... I don't understand all the new technology/terminology/discussions on vaping forums/subohm/nano coils, etc etc.
The kit I use is 2 or 3 years out of date, I feel I'm missing out...
Hi again Perps and Karma and everyone else. I'm fine, still vaping as much as before, just lost a bit of the desire to be at the forefront of vaping, so I've coasted along. Since I sent my Sigelei back, I tried using my evic again, jesus that thing is troublesome and my provari (love it)
I haven't been here since the start of the year, but some might remember me.
A couple of days ago my Sigelei 30w almost went ballistic on me and I think it is very worth a warning to others who have this device.
Late at night I accidentally put a battery the wrong way round into my Sigelei 30w, within a couple of seconds it had become too hot to hold, I took the battery out as fast as I could, it was absolutely boiling hot, so I stuck it into a place where it was safe.
Now, the place where I bought it from (respected uk vendor) has been fine and will pay for it to be sent to them to be checked. No complaints at all. But, I think it's worth warning anyone that has one of these devices.
Don't rely on the fact it should be battery reverse protected, be careful, even more than before.
I've been away from ecigs since the new year, haven't been on the forum, or watched VTTV, been on a holiday from ecigs really, just filled the tank on the evic and cleaned it when needed and that's it. So I am feeling a bit out of it.
I know I resigned from being the ECCA rep for AAEC, but thought we would have a new one by now. Someone should be willing to do it?
Someone better suited to it than me, lol.
I noticed Matt from ECCA hasn't posted for a while, are ECCA still going? If so, we should have a presence there. As I said, I'm not the right person for the job, I managed to annoy everyone in ECCA while I was the rep for the forum, not on purpose, but different views I think.
You take off one "round" then pull the wire back into the slot and cut off. You might use a little more than you wanted, but the wire stays neat and for the price it doesn't matter if you use a few cm more each time.
Wasn't a slot on mine, was just held on with tape. No bother though, just made my own. Bet there has been some who've just took the tape off and its gone everywhere lol.
erm, yeah, me! lol
Till I worked out the slot. Bad if it doesn't have one though.
