    Is this build Safe???

    Hi Guys, just a small safety check-up, I plan on running this build at 80w (max 85w) in my Regulated dual 18650 Tesla WYE 200w (Samsung 25r 3.7 2500mah) would the calculation for the regulated current draw 80w/7.4v =10.82A(per battery) be correct? see attached pic for the coil

    Corrosion on battery terminals!

    Hi everyone! I just started squonking (been vaping for about 5 years) so I got the vandy vapes pulse regulated mod with the vandy chip. I've used it for just 1 day and I've been using it with 18650 adaptor. This morning I changed my battery and noticed some white buildup on the negative...

    Hi all, Just looking for some reassurance that I'm vaping safely with my Smok Alien 220w mod + v8-t8 coil. I've bought the Smok Alien 220w kit a few months ago and have been vaping with it without too much drama (except some leaking and spit back issues) using the Q2 (0.4ohm) coils. Yesterday...

    LG HG2 battery minor scratch. Can I still use it?

    I ordered a pair of LG HG2 batteries for my Alien and while trying to open the box with my keys since they were so difficult to open, I nicked one around the top. I've read if there were any scratches exposing metal then they aren't safe to use but it's minor. What would you all suggest? I'm...

    Another Bad Vape News Story

    I don't know the full situation of how this made it to the news but it's sad that people like this feel the need to blast the dangers of ecigs again. I think part of the blame lies on the folks who are in the story, not only for their obvious neglect of common sense with vape safety but for...

    WTF?! Which is it?

    Alright, I have read in numerous forums and such, that on a regulated mod, you look at the specs to see the lowest resistance and highest resistance, then as long as you are in the correct range, your good. The mod is "regulated" and has all the safety features, so your batteries don't matter...

    Blew a battery... what about the second of the pair?

    Basically, a battery of mine seems to have become no good. I do vape very low with these batteries (around .12-.14) but they definitely have appropriate specs, and I only use in my parallel mech in this case. Everything seemed OK while vaping but when I went to put the batteries in the charger...

    Married batteries , new mod?

    I have had two sets of married Samsung 25r batteries that I would rotate in my minikin RDA. Can I use one set of batteries now in my noisy cricket meaning I would be using it from a regulate parallel device to a series unregulated device. Would that be safe to do considering the batteries are...

    Eleaf iStick 40 TCW, safe with 1.7 ohm, or........

    I've been using an iStick 40w, mainly in power mode, with a kanger subtank mini as a stealth work vape. Just screwed in a new 0.2 ohm kanthal coil, which read 0.17 on the mod. Previously, I've only used 0.5 ohm and occasionally higher. The device is listed for 0.15 min resistance in power mode...
