    We all mostly call is Slowtech around here. While the prices are low with free shipping, you usually have to wait a lot longer for the stuff to get to you. If you don't mind the wait and can get by without whatever you ordered, it's usually a good place to buy gear. EBay is a place we mostly warn people about due to too many knock offs being sold there masquerading as original name brand items. It's buyer beware, especially for mods and batteries. If you're getting things like wraps and drip tips, it's a great place to shop.

    Good for you! The "wicks" that you speak of are included inside the 0.4 ohm V8 Baby-Q2 Dual Core and the 0.15 ohm Octuple core. These two coils (or "cores" as identified here), are already pre-built heating coils with wicks included inside.

    @Tam nailed it. Nobody can tell you which you will like. It's also a pretty tall order to do a full comparison of the two devices. I suggest you google the two with the word "review" after them and look for video reviews. Three reviewers that I like to watch are DJLSB Vapes, PBusardo, and Mike Vapes. Zophie vapes is pretty good to come to think of it. The rest to me are just salesmen.

    Vape pen all messed up

    well if it's the X20 starter kit I found it's a pen style ego battery and that means your mouth piece is the tank and coil and most likely you broke the coil or damaged it In a some way and now it is shorting out. so the short story is you need a new tank and I would head back to the store and shop.

    Productive day

    Holy Crap! You're a machine today. Let's see, I've been up for about an hour and a half and I've stared at the PC monitor a lot. I did build one TC coil and tested a Cylon. I found out it runs about 40┬░F hot. Also discovered another battery bit the dust. 100% Sag right off the charger. Probably time to replace that one, lol.

    Kanger Cupti Coil flooding

    Ok guys I have the solution to your Kanger leaking/gurgling problems. This is what I did..... If you take the top off, you will see the grooves underneath the top where it is supposed to screw in. In some devices there is an o ring placed in the top groove. Mine did not have one! So I got one from my local vape store and put it there myself. The actual problem is with air leaking into the chamber. If you put an o ring there, you will have no more problems! There is a video about this.. here is the link you're welcome. ­čśë

    I love spending your money, too, @Walt. NO! Do not send me stuff!!! I have more back ups and stuff and more stuff that it's piling up faster than I can pay it forward. The people I help stop smoking in my area are very well stocked and then some. One of these days I'll pull out all of the stuff I have and put it into a pile and reorganize to figure out what I have and what goes with what...

    Sounds like you're on the right track. Two coils that come with the kit are all ready to prime and vape. Add batteries and e-juice and you're good to go. Do look up Battery Mooch. He is THE battery expert for vaping. Also give good consideration to getting a good battery charger. While the mod will charge the batteries internally, I have seen incidents. Always safer to use an external charger.

    I'm going to say, just don't! Here's a link to where battery Mooch published his ratings on batteries. The Sony VTC5A will give you 30 amps and the LG HD2 will give you 25 amps. Building under .1╬ę is just asking for trouble unless you under-power the build to where it barely gives a vape. On the LG HG2's (20A) Mooch advises about 60 Watts per battery or no more than 120 watts on a two battery mod. Beyond that you are really punishing the batteries and they may not receive that punishment well.

    https://www.vapordna.com/SMOK-Veneno-225W-TC-and-TFV8-Baby-Light-Edition-p/smvene.htm Scroll down until you see "product includes" and it looks like it has everything you need to get you started except eliquid and two 18650 batteries. You'll want to make sure the batteries you purchase can handle loads that a .04 and .015 ohm coil demands. If we can get @Walt over here, he'll be able to better steer you in the right direction.

    You don't like your truck? Leaving anything charging unattended, especially in the cold or hot like your truck, is only an accident waiting to happen. I would only use an AC adapter and plug it in at your house to charge. Do not put it on to charge and then go to bed leaving it alone. Since you leave it charging in your truck it could be that it's not getting a full charge, your charger isn't working right, or it could be you have a bad mod. Batteries really shouldn't be left in any kind of extreme temperature condition. What wattage are you using it? If you're using it at 50W, that will also drain the battery faster than if you have it set at 10W. This would also make a different on what resistance the coil in your tank is. I'm a mouth to lung vaper and like a cooler vape so I use a 1.8 ohm coil. With this resistance, I only use 7.8W - 8.4W (as the coil gets used the resistance goes up slightly therefore I need more power as it gets older). With this low wattage I only need to charge my battery once a week - I rotate between two and three tank/battery units. Does that make sense? We stress getting back up around here. Once you get the back ups, get back ups of your back ups. Then, get back ups for those. You can never have too many. I've gone through four back ups of battery, tank, coil... in one instance due to various reasons -- nearly all of us have at some point. When that happens, you'll be glad you listened and got the back ups or you'll wind up going, "They said to get back ups and I wish now that I did..." We see this all the time.

    The Cleito is a 22 mm tank and it will work just fine with the Eleaf iStick 50W mod. I have over a dozen iStick 50W and all of them have built in internal batteries, none of the come out.

    Sorry, but there really is no such thing as "Which one is better" or "which one is the best." It all depends on which one works be the best for what you like, how you vape, and what works best for your lifestyle. Vaping is so subjective, that what works well for one person will be nothing but trouble and terrible vapes for another. Only you will know what's best for you.

    Vape

    Way back in the day when vaping was fairly new and much less complicated than it is now, the amount of nicotine in an eliquid was equated to different strengths of cigarettes. For example, 24 mg of nicotine was roughly the equivalent to a pack of Marlboro Reds (shorts). 12 mg was similar to a pack of Marlboro Lights... and so on. Today, we have sub-ohm coils, voltage vs. wattage vs. temperature control, etc. The sub-ohm alone, without adding in how coils and tanks are so much more efficient in nicotine delivery, totally skew the old way of figuring out the nicotine per pack per tankful ratio. Sorry, but I haven't heard anything that helps figure it now these days with today's equipment.

    Question!

    Like Walt, I use Wizard Labs for flavorings, but have been thinking of trying Bull City Flavors. I use Wizard for Nicotine since we don't use all that much. My PG and VG also come from Amazon.

    Question!

    I mix a juice for a friend, he likes a butterscotch menthol mix, we finally settled on 3% menthol, which he thinks is perfect for him. Some people use mint instead of menthol, everyone is different and like different things.

    Find your sweet spot for each coil. Start with low watts then increase a watt or two at a time until you find the perfect wattage for your liking

    Always start low (around 10W or 14W), vape a few times. If that doesn't give you a satisfactory flavor and/or vapor, turn it up a few and vape again. Keep doing this until you get a harsh vape or it tastes slightly burnt. Turn it down a little and that should be the sweet spot for that coil and juice. There is no "best temp" for everyone, it's whatever is "best" for you. Vaping is very subjective and very personal. What works for someone else may not work for you. We call it "vaping" and not "smoke," if something is "smoking," that means your temperature is set too high and something is burning.

    First Kylin Build

    First Kylin Build

    Okay first before I change all your lives with this tank you have to make sure the bottom side of your deck say v1.1. If so then I can show you the way. I'm going to post this wick tutorial but you have to promise to not argue about it. I spent weeks in this and it's perfect. Don't believe what others (dumb YouTubers) have been telling you. Follow this to the T and you will wick great wicks, and your liquid will hold strong. Prom prom. 1. You need to wick your coils very hard and tight. Don't argue and just trust me. This applies to any and all rebuildables. Tired of dripping every third pull? Wick more. You should literally have to hold your coil so the cotton does not move your wraps or destroy your coil. Forget what you've been taught about wicking. It's not "just loose enough to move your cotton around." 2. Fluff the **** out of the cotton with a small precision flathead screwdriver. I mean really rake the cotton. As you can see in the first and second picture it needs to have a lot of fibers removed to thin out the cotton. 3. Now we need to trim away our kylins cotton angel wings so it can be the non leaking, flavor blasting, perfect wicking devil, it's made to be. In picture three we can see this leaves us with some extra pointy floofs on the corner of our wick. These gotta go. So we trim those off not in necessarily a "V" pattern, but ever so slightly as you can see in picture four. 4. So now we need to make sure the cotton isn't too long. We want the cotton to be just a bit past the juice port edge. You can observe this in picture 5. 5. Next we will begin to tuck the cotton into the juice port. Slow, gentle, and steady are the adjectives here. It should go in easy. Do not jam it in. If you have to apply a little bit of force then start over cause you aren't following directions. We're just simply placing the cotton gently inside the port. If your cotton goes all the way down into the port then you did not follow directions and need to trim your cotton shorter. You must have the grub screws clearly visible as seen in picture six. 6. Let's juice this ***** up. Standard stuff here. The only difference here is we need to do a bit of work with the cotton and the cotton in the juice well. To start don't smash or make the cotton collapse. Just gently apply juice and let the cotton absorb it. Then we will focus on the cotton in the well. We will take our small flathead screw driver and very gently push our saturated cotton to be level with the top of the juice well opening. This is shown in picture seven. Please note that even that little bit of cotton you see should be hidden as much as you can directly behind and in line with the top of the juice port. 7. Now we are going to do a full quality assurance check. As seen in picture eight make sure our cotton is not flattened, collapsed in the coil, and most importantly it fully fills the juice port it sits in. We cannot have any openings between the cotton or wall of the juice well. This will cause leaking and will be a build error and not a device error. Quickly off topic here but the kylin v1.1 has no device errors, only build errors thanks to all the terrible build tutorials on YouTube. (I like you bogan, but you do not know how to wick the kylin) Anyway, just make sure it looks like the picture. 8. So no pictures for this part cause if you need one set the kylin down and use something else. When filling the tank the juice port is closed. Do it now. Fill her up. Once full we will screw on the top cap holding just the top cap. When it starts to turn and open the juice ports it's tight enough. 9. That's it. We're done. She's perfect now. Some things I want to say: I have chain Vaped the kylin at around 150 watts on a .2 10 times back to back and it never slowed down. Do this build and it will work perfectly for you. Like I said earlier I'm not gonna argue anything here. I don't need to validate my claims because I know it works. I use it. Have had no leaking whatsoever,(haven't had any perfecting this build either)and absolutely nothing but fully saturated, fully flavorful vapes with this device. I have shown this build exclusively to a vaping discord I am in and every single kylin owner that has tried it has put their kylin back into daily rotation, and made them fall in love with it. So if you don't believe it will work or whatever, then just move on. For the ones that do try the build, let me know what you think, and if you have any questions at all let me know and I will answer every question anyone willing to try the build has. I just simply ask to do as I instruct, don't ask why, and don't argue points. I promise you it will work. What do you have to lose? A kylin you haven't been using anyway, or a kylin that will absolutely blow your mind with it's vape quality. You decide. I also want to say that even with this build there are cons to this device. If you build wrong or wick wrong, the chimney is a perfect boiled vape juice cannon aimed right at your taste meat and it will BBQ it for fun. Ouch. Sometimes even with this build the vacuum can kinda fail and you will notice a drop off in saturation of the wick. Here's the fix: simply leave your juice port open, and begin to unscrew the top cap slowly. Watch as you unscrew your juice ports open wide and guzzle juice faster than Miley Cyrus can chug a 40oz. After about three chugs slap her back just tight enough to start to close the juice ports like earlier and then use the glass to make a full 180 return to open juice ports. If you have any other quirks or issues with the kylin I am also willing to help fix any other problems you have. Oh and lastly, please don't mistake e liquid on the top of your mod or a layer of eliquid caught between your 510 and deck as leaking. The airflow ports at the bottom will condensate juice and it will pool up in these areas. A small price to pay for a cheap RTA that performs like the big dogs. Enjoy!!!

    Welcome back! I'd guess just about everything, lol. Layers upon layers of sophistication along with every gimmick people could think of. Flashing lights, touch screens, vibrators, clocks. I heard one unconfirmed tale of an mp3 player. But the basics are the same. Still dangle some cotton in juice. Push a bunch of electrons through a wire to heat up the juice. Inhale the vapor! Have fun getting re-introduced. You may be surprised at the options.

    Hi All, I came across this thread when looking for solution for the LOW RES problem on the NX75/EVO75. I started suffering from it after I had dropped my mod by accident. I'm posting my solution here in the hope that it may help others. In my case, it was a large surface mount chip in the center of the back of the PCB that had come loose on one point. (I'm guessing it's some kind of regulator, it's the biggest package on the board) After soldering it back in place the mod worked like before. You could also wedge it in place by putting a small piece of paper behind it, if you can't solder it. Looking at the size of the solder joint, that chip should not have come loose. I blame bad solder work. You will need a T5 Torx screwdriver to open the modbox. Best of luck.

    How Long Should I Vape?

    Nana! You go girl!! I'm right there with ya. I was floored when Russ of ClickBang discovered that his chain vaping amounted to a whole 15 minutes worth of vaping per day. Mamu made him a new mod with the new Russian Nivel chip installed in it, and the new chip has the ability to keep track of every second vaped. If the same counter were on a ciggy, the amount of time spent smoking would be astronomical due to the smoke that is constantly burning on the end of the one of those awful things. There is no vapor burning in between puffs, like there is with ciggys. The vapor also dissipates from the air quite quickly, unlike the lingering smoke from a ciggy. Fifteen minutes is nothing.
