Getting ready for the Coke 600 Nascar race....and trying out the 'disposable' Lumi tank on my Sigelei Swallowtail 75A. Weird thing go together eh? :D

View attachment 161612

Rinsed it out with some white vinegar and water..much oily smells were down in there. Dried it out much as possible and filled with a weak solution of Caramel Mocha DIY juice. (full strength, that dank juice will gum up about anything short of a Genesis...hehe)

Dat 0.28Ω mesh coil is blasting away at 34W just nicely. :)
Hi. Could you see anything that was giving off the smell?
When I got the Smok TFV16 it had a significant amount of oily whatever it was all over the fill port seal and glass seals. It was viscous like oil but it had no smell I could pick up on. I wondered if it was placed on purpose there so the seals didn't stick. Have had some tanks where the seals had become stuck to the glass and other surfaces. I always clean my new tanks anyway so it got a good rinse in iso distilled water mix and cleaned it. Otherwise whatever it was would have been vaped.

Simple answer would be: CNC machining requires a fuckton of machine oil as lubricant when cutting. If not washed off, as is usual for Chinese stuff, u get it in yer atomizer. ;-) Always wash out yer atomizers and coils when ya get 'em.

Re-lube o-rings with VG afterwards.

Was gonna set up a dripper I haven't used yet on my luxotic, but one of the screws was missing. Will look for another one later. I did get these set up, though. For all those that have, and still, serve, thank you. Some have paid a price I could never put a cost to. God bless you all.

A little bit of old, a little bit of new.

Yeah for sure wash them. Never liked the idea of putting something unwashed near or in my mouth. Especially now!

Added some nicotine to a few bottles of 0mg I got cheap. Also made a tester bottle of purple pixie. Not sure the authors name but was a recipe I picked up from the chemnovatic grape review at BCF. I just lowered the grape percentage. Will try it tomorrow

What about plug n play coils? Getting cotton wet would seem to be not great for them.

The white one is an IPV D3, the red is an older school box mod, eVic VTC mini. Each is about the same size as the Colossal, though, the white one, more so.

I finally remembered the name of the mod that your blue/green one reminds me of: anyone here remember the Provari wars? Provari fan-boys? I think there was a Provari called the "Zombie" version, in that blue/green/speckles kind of finish.

I dont know what others do but I get a cotton bud, think they are called Q Tips as well in other countries, and dip it in 100% iso then clean all the metal surfaces I can. It dries off in seconds and only adds a minute or two to the whole coil fitting exercise. I leave the cotton alone.

cottton dries... just dont burn it

A better idea....burn/clean coils before ya wick. In short, DIY is the only way to vape.
Going forward, in this nanny country, if you can't DIY, you are fucked.


Vaping will be banned, taxed out of existence, liquids, flavors, etc.

We been ready since 2014.

And I got a pack of Camels in the freezer....I'm a realist.

I can mix, I just haven’t built yet. I’ve only been vaping a little over a year now, so I’ve been trying to prepare for that amount of time.

I’ve got a stash of pipe tobacco for RYOs, just in case. But I’d rather not smoke. I think plain VG/PG/nic would be better than nothing.

They’re cute mods and I knew you had a Colossal. I wish Asmodus made more mods with buttons, though. I have a Minikin 2 that is such a pita with the touch screen!

Weren’t there Provari fan boys on ECF? It’s funny to think about stuff like that now.

How’s it going, Andria? Stay safe and healthy! :hug:

That sounds better. I’ve tried rinsing some coils, and they’re never quite the same afterwards. Thanks!

Decided to stop worrying bout the vapocalypse and get my gear in order.....so stocked up on small aliens for my single coil attys (AVS has 30% sale). Ordered spare glass for the destinys, some more mesh for the Unity and two more Intakes. Thinking about a couple of Kelpie RTAs,the day ain't over. :devil:

Yeah I have a friend that rinses his coils after a week or two in vodka, dries them, then uses them again. I asked him hows it taste after that and he said pretty weak flavour wise but I dont care. I guess its personal taste but that wash will never restore the used cotton in contact with the mesh. And for me a 3 to 5 buck coil that lasts between 1 to 2 weeks is bananas compared to what I spent on cigs. 1 week vaping for me with diy juice would cost me if the coil gave out in just 1 week, often they go longer, just $10 max. If I still smoked it would be $100 easy given the price of them here.
Gotta remember too as the cotton in factory mades gets older and used the coil gets more prone to leaks. Its often one of the first signs the coils on the way out. Why risk a leak with juice ingress with your favourite mod? Unless its like an Aegis or Tinker 2.
Each to their own but washing pre made factories for me has too many negatives.
Besides, I hate a flavorless vape and will change out a coil as soon as it drops to a noticeable level of "blerghhh" :blech:

Yeah, on ECF, though I never had much to say to people that would spend that much on a mod -- y'know, me and Cromwell, we're the tightest of tightwads. :D

We're all hanging in... made some masks, so I can escape the house now and then... but mostly still just staying at home. Gotta go to the Verizon store this week, see about having my phone repaired; I noticed a couple days ago, my screen is kinda bulging out from the case on one side, Got insurance, so it shouldn't cost too much to have it fixed, but I might be without it for a week or two, and I know they're gonna try to upsell me, since I just finished paying off the 2 yr lease. I'm perfectly happy with that phone, though it needs the repair, and it needs a new batt too, won't stay charged too well anymore. Given a vaper's familiarity with li-ion batts, I know that means it's time to replace it.

Hope y'all are doing well, given how hard this shit has hit NY.

Edit. Posted check in here by mistake.
Might as well post something rather than a dot.
Today I didn't get time to mix what I wanted to as thing after thing stopped me. One of those days. :giggle:
I did vape though. :D

Cleaning in Iso is the best way I have found to get rid of strong flavors like tobacco in attys and squonk bottles.

I seriously think it’s time to quit vaping, it’s like god don’t want me to vape.

I just lost the entire cap and I found out about it after I got on the bus, fucking bullshit. What am I going to do now, I just got this.

Im sorry that happened to you. Seems like you have a history of losing, or damaging gear.

I have to ask, and I mean no disrespect, but do you vape because you are addicted to nicotine and quit smoking, or do you vape only as a status symbol of sorts, like, to look "cool"?

If the answer isn't because you're addicted to nicotine and wanted to quit cigarettes, then maybe you should rethink why you vape and the equipment you use.

If I told u I’m not in it to quit smoking, would u think of me differently? If I told u that vape gear is just like a watch where u don’t just use it to tell time, but instead became a fashion item, would u agree with me?

I like to vape because of the different flavour and all.

I alway believe that will power is the only to quit smoking period, while vaping is the best tool for the job. I fully support it and promo vaping, i used to lose gear all the time cuz I would let anyone that’s curious and interested try vaping. They were mostly pens but hey I was ok with since I was at club and all. Most of those ppl I met were all young people and a lot of them have already started using pods. These are they kinda of guys that Juul was hoping target and made it.

Yeah maybe I’m hipster or the guy that u hate cuz in the wrong kinda of image for vaping. But I really don’t as long as I fully believe in it and care.

If I told you that you are lucky vaping exists as you may have been out of curiosity, like you were drawn to vaping, tried it and got hooked, but you are lucky this alternative existed ........would you believe me? You may have had as a fashion statement a wooden pipe hanging out of your mouth or a crafted cigarette holder with whisps of smoke drifting up from you as you stood looking contemplative at the passing world, all the while driving nail after nail in the coffin. But instead are vaping candy flavoured vg/pg and asking this!
o_O Um, where was I!? Oh yeah.....what time does that watch say it is right now?

Im not looking down on anyone, and I hope I didn't come across that way. Just in my opinion, if you're only vaping for a status symbol or "fashion", you should at least learn to properly use and care for the gear you're showing off.
By all means, vape for whatever reason you want, just be safe, be careful and please don't make the rest of us look bad.

Good luck. I tried with a Cleito Pro. Second time I went to fill it, I couldn't get juice into the tank without it going all over the place. Flavor wasn't good either. I put it aside and haven't touched it since.
I forgot to respond to this. The RBA works pretty good for me. The flavor is great. I just used 26ga SS wire to make two coils. 6 wraps each around a 2.5mm jig.

I tried screwing it into my Cleito Pro but the top fill would be blocked off it looked like. Even taking off the mouth piece, I couldn't see into the tank. It works pretty good on the old Cleito when you don't screw the top cap on too tightly I'm assuming. I just refilled it for the first time and the top cap turned off without anything anything else coming loose.

Mixed a liter of 4mg unflavored. Looked over my available flavors and made 120ml's of MFS watermelon.
Realized I'm down to just over 500ml of nic.
Debated where to order nic from this time. Still haven't decided.

Also checked tracking on an atty (two actually) that a member of this forum was inquiring about in a vendors thread. One's for him but he doesn't know it yet. :vino:

It's hard for me to understand when people say they forgot their vape, or in this case, somehow misplaced an essential part of vaping. But then, I made sure I had at least 2 pks of smokes in my purse anytime I left the house, for at least 30 of my 39 yrs as a smoker, and even after more than 6 yrs of vaping, almost 6 yrs smoke-free, I could more easily forget my shoes than my vape!

I think this might be the only aspect of whether or not he's a former smoker that is relevant here. I've always supported the idea that anyone who wants to vape has a perfect right to do so, even minors if they're smokers who want to quit, or minors who might try smoking, but maybe if they vape first, it will forever ruin smoking for them... but someone who's not a former smoker doesn't have nearly as much at stake, if they forget their vape, or lose part of it... they aren't going to succumb to a cigarette craving if they can't vape. A former smoker just might, if he or she was stressed enough.

the thing is, everyone's different, and "shit happens", it is what it is.

i can see a never smoker getting addicted to vape. though, as you say, x-smokers are more likely to be.

They can't possibly get "addicted," since nicotine, all by itself, is NOT addictive -- see http://www.ecigarette-politics.com/the-great-nicotine-myth.html

But certainly they can get a habit, since vaping is pleasant, and humans routinely make habits of pleasant activities. But a habit is NOT addiction. If it was, then people would be going to rehab to stop biting their nails.

It doesn't help any of us for actual VAPERS to be spouting this nonsense about vaping being "addictive." Unless one is vaping WTA, which IS addictive, almost as much as smoking is. Nicotine, by itself, has NEVER been shown to produce ANY dependence. See the link I gave above.

Ordered a box of cellucotton. 40ft. Never tried the stuff, but seen a bunch of people here talk it up.
Between that and the giant bag of Japanese pads ive been working out of for the last two years, I should be good on cotton for a long while.

you can believe what you want. the fact is pretty much anything has the possibility of being addictive, be it body and/or mind.

It's not a matter of "belief" on my part, though clearly it is, on yours. Addiction and dependence are not the same thing, and you are throwing a straw man just as effortlessly as the smoke nazis do, so clearly they have poisoned your mind just as they have the non-smokers who've turned into anti-smokers.

Go read that page I linked, http://www.ecigarette-politics.com/the-great-nicotine-myth.html, if you really want to understand something about nicotine.

Smokes were $14 a pack in NY, and that was mostly tax!!!

I was trying to figure out how many coils I’d need to last a few years. Ye Gods! If a coil lasts, let’s say, a week. That’s 52 coils a year. So that’s 10-ish boxes a year.

Hmm, I’ve still got a way to go. :cry:

I tried to ask him that, too. I think it’s the cool factor. In that case, he can get a nice pod for outside and use his mechs and RDA’s at home. If everyone smokes in China, it doesn’t really seem like anyone will know the difference anyway!!
