  1. Not all pods require salt nic, some refillables can take lower nic, just make sure you use 50/50 juice. I'm using the SMOK Infinix with 3 mg regular nic and am perfectly happy.
  2. With the refillable pods, since they have 1.0 - 1.2 ohm coils in them, you really don't have to increase the nic if you don't want to. Just sayin'.
  3. For me, I wanted anything that wasn't cigarette flavored but would supply the nic I wanted/needed. Then, the race was on to find the all day vape flavor. After that, I was looking for performance in way of vapor production and longevity of battery. These days I'm using the Eleaf iPower 80W TC with the Aspire Triton 2 with a 1.8 ohm coil, 3 mg nic, and vaping like a train. This is why I want to find a good pod system that's lightweight, easy to conceal and carry, gives me the nic and vapor to satisfy and not vape as much.
  4. I'm interested in what you find while you experiment. You'll have to report back when you find something good.
  5. Salt nic is fairly new and I'm not sure what the heck they are other than they're high nic, most are in the 35 mg range, but that keeps me from chain vaping and it doesn't offer a harsh vape. Yeah, the years fly by don't they? I'm happy to see you're already at the 5 year mark. Next month I'll be at 6 years... wow. Never thought I'd be off cigarettes for this long. Good to hear you're doing well. I hope to see you around a little more often, I've missed spending your money.
  6. You rang? First, congrats on your five year mark. I remember when you first came on to this forum... you've been missed lately. I've been trying the pods lately. Like you, I'm tired of lugging around a fist sized brick although I do still use them at home. The first pod I've tried is Vapor Talk's Amethyst with the nic salt pods. I'm in love with the size, it's perfect for stealth vaping and so easy and light to carry around. The mixed berry flavor is amazing (the kit comes with four pods - menthol, tobacco, mango and mixed berries). That said, it's small -- something like a 250 mAh? and the pods are small so they don't last long. I could live with that - to a point, but the major downside to it is that many of the pods leak ( @Christopher said they can be refilled but Vapor Talk doesn't sell the liquid by itself, you have to buy the pods). When it leaks enough to get into the battery part, the battery stops working. Chris is aware and said they're working on it but for now, the leaking pods being so expensive ($12.99 for a 4-pack), it's not my favorite although it easily could be if they fix the leak and sell liquid by itself. Bought the SV MiPod, it's a little square thing with a refillable 1 ml pod. You can refill 5 - 7 times before the coil goes out. Of course, if you're using sweeter, darker juices... you know the drill. While it's cute, I'm very disappointed in the little button (five clicks on/off), it never turns off and the vapor is hot. I've burned my lips a couple times already despite changing out the pods -- of course I bought extras! This one is a no for me. The GhoSTick is another pen style refillable pod system. The pod holds 1.5 mls of liquid, 2.0 ohm coil, 350 mAh battery and comes with the charge cord and two empty pods. All the pods take a minimum 50/50 juice. Any more VG and the coil burns up faster, too much PG and the pods leak, which is what I think is the problem with the Amethyst pods, it's too high in PG. Anyway, this is the winner so far for me. It's got refillable pods, it's a little longer than I'd like, the Amethyst's length is perfect but you give up battery life for shortness. I've been using this one a lot lately and have bought some of my favorite juices in 50/50 at 12 mg regular nic (higher nic so I don't vape it as much). I have a SMOK Infinix on its way with some extra empty pods, they should be here tomorrow. It's very similar to the Amethyst so we'll have to see how that one works. If I were to recommend one of the ones I've tried, so far I'd say try the GhoSTick and mix some juice to 50/50 and give it a whirl.
  7. In my experience, some fruit mixes that start out smelling perfumy need to sit for a bit to let it settle down. Most creams, like @VapeMama said, need to sit awhile as do many of the bakery flavors.
  8. Not all pods use the nic salts, it depends on the brand. Some of the newer pods like the GhoStick have a 1.0 ohm coil and you can refill the pods with the juice of your choice. Same goes for Smok's Infinix, it has a 1.4 ohm coil inside the pods so you'll want to use a 50PG/50VG juice at a "normal" nic level such as a 12 mg or 18 mg depending on what you prefer instead of going the lower nic (3 mg or 6 mg) like you would in a sub-ohm set up.
  9. Even though this is an old video, the premise is the same and might help you with your issue.

    With this post being in the modders forum, I'd presume it has something to do with a mod?
  13. We don't know if he's trying to create a whole new type of mod...
  14. Just curious... what does this have to do with vaping?
  15. First of all, we don't kick people off the forum just because we assume they're underaged. If you don't understand their question - no matter how much it might not make sense to you - that's on you. I understood it perfectly well. Everyone is welcome here. Even you.
  16. Why would you want to do that? It would make your vape pen all sticky.
  17. https://www.vaportalk.com/us/ Scroll down and it says Ace of Spaces instead of Ace of Spades under Recent News. Thought you might like to know...
  18. Menthol flavor is rather harsh as far as throat hit is concerned. Add to that having 70% PG, I can see why your tongue is sore. If it were me, I would get a bottle of vanilla or bavarian cream or something smooth and sweet, add a few drops directly into your tankful of menthol to smooth out the flavor a little. That might help, as would drinking lots of water.
  19. What flavor of juice are you vaping? When I vaped mojito flavored juice too much I would get sores on my tongue some times. It could be that it's too harsh to vape so consistently, but more likely that you're dehydrated. Drinking more water -- not juice, cola, coffee or tea but just plain water can help lots.
  20. I would say that answer would be no, they aren't compatible. The Baby Beast is a 22 mm tank while the Big Baby Beast is a 24.5 mm.
  21. To add to what @Walt already said, the fruit flavors seem to like cooler temps, the bakery flavors a little more heat. Since I'm not all that familiar with TPriv, I can't give you any advice on that. For me, who uses a 1.8 ohm coil, 30W seems awfully high. Mine is set at 8.4W at the moment, and that seems high from my usual 7.8W, but everything in vaping is relative.
  22. Like @Walt I'm not familiar with your device and tried to look it up online. Not finding much information, although I did find a website with this name, they sell all different kinds of mods and starter kits. Without more information on the one you have, your best bet would be to take it back to the store where you bought it. Sorry we couldn't be of more help.
