    I received a gift that I had no idea what to do with so I turned to Google and YouTube.
    It's the strangest rebuildable tank I have ever seen.
    It's a German Still Vapor.
    It uses an SS mesh strip and has four Stainless Steel cables that drop down into the tank.
    After watching a "Todd's Review" I decided to give it a try.
    It is awesome! It wicks as good or better than any RTA I have and absolutely no leaking.

    Maybe check cheapvaping.deals . There's deals on vape gear all the time.

    Smok a-priv 16.50, d-barrel 17.50, t-priv with tank 13.80, uwell blocks 15ml/90w squonk 10.62, sigelei fuchai duo 175w mod for $8, ehpro cold steel for $33. They keep adding new deals nearly every day and while many of these look to be smok, they run in bursts. I've seen vaporesso gens on sale, vandy swell's, the ipv eclipse, drag 2. I grabbed the drag 2 not long ago for $15 ($20 shipped), not my fave for sure but meaning there's greater variety.

    I received and built on my Vandy Vape revolver. And I made up a batch of blueberry waffle e-juice. The Vandy Vape revolver broke my usual streak of wicking it the first time perfectly and then going downhill from there until I get the hang of it.. 100% user error but it leak which never happens to me so what the heck probably was in a rush because my husband was going to sleep and I didn't want to disturb him.

    I really like air factory juice. Only had strawberry kiwi and berry rush but both are great.

    DHL arrived with the new O-Rings from ESG and after a good clean and new o-rings all round I added some new Ni80 2.5mm Aliens and wicked them up with Titanium Fiber Cotton and added some Red Pill and we are back in business! The Skyline and Skydrop are running as smooth as silk. Outstanding flavour.

    I agree. I'll add this flavor to my list of adv's, but only when I can find it on sale.

    Decided to take advantage of the Freeman Vape Juice offer. Ordered 5 30ml bottles for 9 cents apiece and 5 vape bands. Total shipped was $13 bucks. This is how companies need to price samples to gain new customers. If I like them, I'll give them my business.

    The DIY Ejuice sub is like Grumpy Old Men. There's a couple of old snarky dudes there that ruffle a lot of feathers.

    The ECR sub is mostly newbs, and people that spend 18 hours a day on there. The "Smok is complete garbage" patrol is full force there too lol. It's fast moving so it gives me something to read when I'm bored.

    Yes I mainly stay on the Electronic_Cigarette & Vaping forum-
    Yes the threads move quickly- I mainly read there now, I was more active in the beginning when I started there.
    Watching the downfall of Anthony there was like a soap opera- he went from being a moderator, reviewer and an RDA designer to being demodded in shame, not sure if he even posts there anymore.
    Lots of bashers there- 8Vape is another hot topic along with Smok.
    Battery Mooch posts there and does reply to people- I take the good with the bad and just read.
    VU is the best forum to post on in my opinion- lots of great people here.

    I had to file my 1st ever PayPal dispute last Friday- 4 years of on-line purchasing, pretty much problem free until now. Mine is a US vendor !

    Sounds like you've been really lucky. I wouldn't say I've filed dozens of claims, but there have been at least 15 or 20, between my bank and Paypal, but then again, that's been across 14 years of electronic purchases. I joined eBay on Christmas Day in 2005, so that was the beginning of e-commerce for me! :)

    A couple of times an in-person transaction started a problem. Someone in an area where we went on vacation once must have taken my debit card number, because they used it to get gas and cash at a Marathon station in that area twice. People have tried to do cash transfers, Target purchases, buying club memberships, all kinds of ridiculous things. One time my checking account was debited $9 and some change by someone who was not me, and when I called BoA about it, she said it was a good thing I called right away. Apparently there was a rash of those transactions out of a central European country; they'd take a small amount of money first, and if you didn't do anything, they'd hit you again in a few days for a big amount.

    Yikes- sorry you have been thru all that!
    I have had my PayPal and Discover Card since 2002- One charge back in 2017 when a Vape vendor never sent me coils I ordered.
    Christmas week 2018 an alert on my Discover Card- someone tried to charge $6,000 at a Oklahoma Jewelry store on my Discover Card, charge was denied and a new card issued.
    Now this PayPal Dispute against an online US Vape Vendor I filed on 1/3- when the claim is settled I will blast the vendor in the Mud Pit Hall Of Shame!

    Just ordered a Vinci X and two extra pods from StrikesUSA. They have a package deal where you get the unit (kit) and the extra pods for $39.50.

    Will be ordering an RBA for it next week sometime. Has anyone used the Vinci RBA?

    I used to sell and buy a lot in eBay (over 1200 feedback, all positive) and have been using PayPal for years.
    This year I filed my first dispute!
    It was a Rig Mod that was listed on eBay. It didn't sell on eBay so I contacted the seller and bought it for 200.00. the guy kept giving me the run around then after 2 weeks and still not shipped I filed.
    PayPal investigated and he wouldn't respond so they refunded my money and closed his PayPal account.

    I traded for an awesome TVL from @pizzadave80 and at the same time ordered a 28mm Strife RDA to match.
    They both arrived and I was really unhappy with the match, the TVL has a great looking brushed finish and the Strife has a really nice but glossy smooth finish.
    I took a scuff pad to the RDA and I think it came out awesome!

    Don't anyone shoot me for this, but I might like one of my SS Axials scuffed like that. Definitely want to keep one of them shiny, it's so beautimous as is. So was this difficult to do?

    It was very easy to do, if the Axial is Stainless Steel it should work. If it's chrome plated it probably won't.

    Just take a scuff pad and make sure you scuff it in the same direction. Think of it like it's in a drill spinning, that's the direction you want to scuff it.
    I done it but hand using a back and forth motion and turning it with my other hand.

    So like one of those ordinary scuff pads? Like the green ones that you can use in the kitchen? I do really like how pretty the shine is on those, but having one that's more "brushed" would be nice, too, I think. I just don't want to mess it up.

    Yes, I used one that's for automotive use but they are the same.
    I can't guarantee you won't mess it up but I don't think you will.

    Noticed today that FT suddenly has A LOT MORE RTAs than normal. Things I've not seen there before, like Modfather clones, several different Fatality clones, etc. Worth a look-see.

    I browsed some more online but didn’t buy anything. I don’t really need any vape gear, so I just looked at some mods. Plus I checked out some flavors, but I don’t need anything really.
