    Tam got a reaction from Bebop in Who's using a Pod system?   
    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.

    just wanted to add.  that's one thing I found in all me experience.  at first I wanted  cigarette flavor. then it evolved to vapor production.  then I weaned myself down to 3mg where I sat for a long time.  but I was vaping like a chimney.  so went back to higher ohm coils and back to 6mg but I vape a lot less.  and that's where I'm sitting today Vaping 6 on and .90 coil but only putting away 3 - 5 mils a day instead of 10 or 15 Haha. 
     
    yeah.  I will report back what I find....

    lol.  I let you know how it goes, tam.  I feel my wallet opening as we speak.  I'm definitely going to give something a whirl while I'm out here.
    I've heard that salt nic is less harsh.  Only one I tried was a menthol though and I don't do menthols (although I have to admit , was exactly like a Kool that I remember).  well I'll definitely get out and do some 'sperimenting.

    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.

    Tam got a reaction from zjrmm13 in Vaping tongue pain   
    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.

    Tam reacted to Bebop in Getting a little worried   
    it's important to research where the article came from and the date.  Some times old articles that have long since been debunked pop up "new" but it's really a regurgitation of an old article that is made to look fresh but it's based on old data.
    A few years ago there was a damning article about the horrible effects of heating a coil and all the bad properties it was giving off but the article failed to mention that excessive voltage was being pushed through the coil (way way more than you and I will ever see).  that article kept popping up under various guises because the "powers that be" think we're stupid.
    I have yet to see any article published that has any merit to the claims you refer to.  And the vaping industry advocates keep a pretty close eye on those articles and respond to them rapidly.  
    we're all concerned about the safety of vaping but many of us have done a lot of research on this so this is still only an opinion but there is no way in hell vaping can be compared to smoking in terms of destructiveness.  They are completely different animals no matter who wants to position vaping alongside smoking.  They are too easy to position as evil bedfellows and the anti smoking lobby knows this and uses it to their advantage.  Ironically enough, instead of finding allies with the vaping industry  - a move that would have pratically wiped out cigarette smoking by now -- the anti smoking lobby shot themselves in the foot and rendered themselves impotent with regard to health and instead, lobbied billions of tax dollars on inefficient campaigns and a regressive tax.
    Now I'll tell you how I REALLY feel, lol

    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.

    Tam got a reaction from Rixter in Vaping (dot) Watch   
    Some time ago Rixter did a review on Vaping.Watch's "Clockwerks Custard" juice. I decided to give it a try because he made it sound so good (Rixter has a way of doing that). Ordered a 30 ml bottle at 6 mg nic. It comes in a square glass bottle with a separate dripper cap. I ordered a second dripper cap just in case.
    When the priority box came, it was in a plastic bag that USPS put it in because the box was smashed flat and the cardboard was all wet and dripping.
    I took pictures immediately before opening it and found the glass bottle smashed to smithereens. Went to their website and contacted them with the pictures. Watch, the owner, got back to me apologizing all over the place. All I wanted was an apology and a replacement for the juice. He asked about the dripper caps and I told him that one was fine, I'd need a replacement for the other.
    He sent me two 30 ml bottles "for my inconvenience" and a new dripper cap priority mail wrapped like a mummy in bubble wrap. 
    Fast forward to this week. I reordered some more Clockwerks Custard (because it really is that good and a great mixer with other juices). I also ordered a couple more dripper caps because I found that the one I thought was okay... wasn't.
    Got the order in the other day.
    They changed to round bottles and the dripper cap was for the smaller round bottles and wouldn't fit the second square bottle that Watch had sent before. 
    I contacted them again. This time, Wrecker75 answered (gotta love their names!). All I asked was how could I order the dripper caps to fit the square bottles?
    He sent me two for free.
    The customer service I've gotten from this company and the people who work there has been outstanding! I couldn't ask for better. The juice is amazing... I must try some more of their flavors.
    Thanks to Rixter for bringing this small company to my attention. I will be ordering more from them. They've more than won my loyalty.

    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.
