  1. "Squonk" is just another word for "squeezing the bottle."
  2. I vote for Vapor Talk, which is not on your list, but is the place where you posted your poll...
  3. See what happens when I don't Google the mod first? I automatically assumed it was a regulated mod. Thanks, @Walt, for the correction! Now that I know it's a mech, it's that much more critical and very important to stop using it if it's heating up as much as you say. Time to research how to use a mech before something goes wrong. Glad you came here to ask questions!
  4. What resistance is your coil and how many watts are you using on it?
  5. Good for them to jump right on it! Thanks for the update, Walt.
  6. I'm glad you weren't hurt, Walt! Thanks for the heads up. Can you imagine if this had happened to a not so experienced vaper or someone who panicked?
  7. You not only didn't tell us what mods they are, what batteries (brand and size) that you bought. Might be a bad set of new batteries, might be a faulty charger, it might be your mods are toast, but without more information, it's hard to be able to decipher. :)
  8. Much like smoking cigarettes when they first came out, there isn't any long term studies on the effects of vaping so we won't know if there will be any adverse consequences down the road. If you're not a smoker trying to quit smoking cigarettes, and you're only wanting to start vaping to fit in with your co-workers or because it looks "cool." I would strongly recommend you find a different hobby, other co-workers who might have similar interests as you, and stay away from something that, although we believe it's safer than smoking, we still don't know the full effects it could have in the future. That's my two cents. :)
  9. Hi Blair. As I tell all non-smokers who are interested in vaping... not all long term studies have been done to assess whether vaping is completely safe or not. I would strongly suggest vaping for a smoker trying to quit, but for a non-smoker? My suggestion would be to not start vaping, but find something else that would interest you with possibly less chance of harming your health. Just my two cents.
  10. Very pretty! Congrats on your new set up.
  11. Did you mean an Ego AIO and not Egoa10? In any case you didn't mention filling the tank with eliquid. If you did, how long did you let the new coil sit after placing the liquid into the tank? It needs to be sitting in the liquid/tank for a few minutes to let the filler material get saturated first. We call it "vapor" and not "smoke". If you see smoke coming out, that means something is burning.
  12. Well... you are on the Vapor Talk forum, which is also connected to the Vapor Talk store. The Amethyst is their new line of pod based vape sticks. You can find them here: https://www.vaportalk.com/us/shop/the-amethyst/ You get the battery part, four different flavors of pods, a USB attachment for charging and voila! The pods contain nic salts, which are very smooth but fairly high in nicotine so you take a few hits and satisfy your craving. You don't have to keep hitting it. I love these for being very discrete, it's small, slim, and easy to use (pop a pod in and vape - no buttons to push, no settings, just vape). The bottom part of the pods do leak a bit, but every time I change pods or take the pod out to charge, I swab the inside with a Q-tip and it's good to go. I got hooked on the Fruit Fusion flavor. In full disclosure, though, some of the pods leak more than others. Depending on how much you vape, the pods only hold less than 1 ml of liquid so you go through it pretty quickly. The replacement pods can be purchased for 4 for around $11 dollars or so plus shipping. If your sister can handle refilling a pod, I'm really enjoying the GhoSTick. It's pretty similar to the Amethyst but the battery's a little longer (longer battery life), the pods are refillable (they don't come prefilled, you have to buy your own eliquid), it charges with a micro-USB cord. These pods hold 2 mls of eliquid.
  13. If you change your settings from TC to watts, you might get a better vape from your mod and tank. I'd start around 20 watts and take a puff. If that's not doing it for you, go up a few watts and try again until you get a harsh vape or a slight burnt taste. Back it down a touch and you should have your sweet spot for that coil. Just a thought.
  14. Another thing you could try is to thin out your new eliquid. In your original post you said you used the 60VG/40PG with no problems. Your new juice is 70/30. If you can get some regular PG, I would take a little of the 70/30 juice and put it in a separate bottle to experiment so you don't screw up your whole bottle. If you don't have access to plain PG, get some distilled water (don't use tap), and add a few drops to 1 ml of eliquid and mix well. Then, try to vape to see if you're still getting dry hits. If so, add another few drops of distilled water to your eliquid and try again. I've done this with some of the old set ups when I first started vaping, it works well but you have to do it only a few drops at a time or you risk getting watery eliquid you can't fix or vape.
  15. What kind of tank are you using this on? What resistance coil? Is it a premade coil or an RDA? If it's premade, did you prime the coil/wick before vaping?
  16. What mg of nicotine are you using? Also, what's the PG/VG and flavor ratio?
  17. At the very least I hope they can nail him for theft across state lines.
  18. My vote would go to the batteries. Bad batteries can also affect how your coils act.
  19. First, I would like to say to you that, if you are not a smoker, I would not recommend anyone to start vaping. While we believe that vaping is a safer alternative to smoking combustible cigarettes, there are no long term studies to show it is totally safe. Why did you want to start vaping in the first place? You never said what you are using to vape the 0 nic eliquid. Eliquid in general tends to have a dehydrating effect. We always recommend increasing your intake of plain water - not juice or soda or coffee or tea - just plain water. If I were you, I would look for something different to start and leave vaping to those who are trying to get off cigarettes. Just my opinion.
  20. Sorry you got burned so bad, @MRSpivey What can the FB Vape Court do for you other than to ban this guy?
  21. If you're still smoking cigarettes and vaping along side, then 3 mg of nic in eliquid probably is too low. I would go up to a 6 mg, if I were you. The Baby Beast drinks eliquid, which is why you're going through so much of it. If you're also vaping a lot at 3 mg, you'll go through that much more in order to satisfy your nicotine cravings.
  22. It's also unusual that a new forum member names himself/herself with the name of the eliquid vendor and posts the link to their site and then complains about their service. Please do not spam the forum with spammy links or you'll find your account banned. If you have a legitimate post, you're more than welcome on the forum. Thank you for your cooperation.
  23. Holy cow, Jack! You should only post about your issue ONCE and then wait for a reply. Please do not spam the forum by posting the same thing multiple times in different topic areas. Thank you.
  24. For me, the SMOK Infinix is a good stick "pod" system. I like that it has a side fill and refill option. The thing I'm not crazy about is that juice will get into your mouth if you suck just a little too hard, but it's good otherwise. It's between the GhoSTick and the Infinix so far. Both are refillable, the coils seem to last -- I'm still on the first pod without having burned it out just yet.
  25. Don't know if syrup is safe to vape or not, but personally, I wouldn't chance it. Use it for your pancakes instead and go get a vanilla flavoring that's most commonly used for vaping to be safe. You also left off the "e" in "cane." LOL
