    Tam got a reaction from Walt in Need help choosing an atty.   
    If you're looking for a tank that takes 1.5 ohm coils or higher, if you can find them, the Kanger Pro Tank 3 or 4, the Aerotank V2, or my personal favorite is the Aspire Triton V2 take those coils.

    That's my motto: Get a back up. Then, get a back up of your back up. After that, get a back up of your back up, back up. You can never have too many. Ever. At one point I went through four back ups for various reasons before getting one that worked at the time. Boy, was I ever glad that I had them to go to. I know it doesn't help you now, but as soon as you can, get some back ups, they don't have to be fancy, even pen style batteries are good in a pinch.

    You're welcome.  First opportunity, get a back up.  Even if it is a $20 mechanical tube mod.  They aint fancy but they will make vapor and keep the stinkies away!!!

    Does your mod read the resistance of your heating coil? If it's not, then it sound like the coil from the tank isn't making a good connection -- to continue with the diagnosis that @Walt was starting.

    I just can't get over the fire button.  Super smooth.  Just floats in and out.  Have a little Serpent mini on it and am getting a vape as good as any regulated mod.  Just plain nice.

    Tam reacted to Earthling789 in Too harsh   
    @Tam and @Walt are correct...  Increasing the volume of creamy flavors (Vanilla, Malted Milk, Cream, Ice Cream, etc.) will reduce the "bite" of the fruit flavors.  Like Walt, I've found that certain brands of fruit flavors are much harsher than others, and some of the "candy" flavors are very citrus-acidic and artificial tasting (just like Tam said).  I also prefer Capella and TFA (The Flavor Apprentice) fruit flavors over others.... CAP are some of the best IMO...
    I would also suggest lowering the candy flavor (or eliminating it all together) and play with the ratio of Blueberry and malted-milk/ice-cream flavorings until you find the right balance.  Mix in 5ml - 10ml batches until you find the ratio you like best... then you can make gallons if it if you wish

    Tam reacted to Earthling789 in I have a suspicion   
    Schools do test for Nicotine, but not always.  If your son is an athlete, then, YES, they will test for Nicotine.  If they do a urine test, it is not always conclusive or accurate results for Nicotine, but if they do a hair or blood test, it will be more accurate, and hair tests can show Nicotine (or drug use) from many months ago.
    Our school does not require annual drug screening of students (state law forbids it), but if you are a student-athlete, your parents must sign consent for random testing.  Thanks to our "betters" in Legislature, Nicotine is considered as bad as Heroine, so they do test for it (as well as steroids and a host of other drugs), and will suspend/expel any student who tests positive (unless of course they are the star quarterback and/or child of a school admin... grrrr).  The only way to get them back into school is to PAY for independent lab test to disprove the school's test... TWICE over the course of 2-weeks.  Even if you prove your child is not using any drugs or performance enhancers, they're branded with the label, still not allowed to participate in sports, and their record will still show the suspension/expulsion... without any apology...

    Love the placement!  In my hand my first knuckle bends over the bottom of the bevel perfectly.  Most comfortable thumb fire I have.  The adjustment buttons will lock too so now accidental changes from the palm.

    Ok, it all come in yesterday, the wire and the mod.  I spun up some K1 2x26+36 parallel and wound up a 5 wrap on a 3mm rod.  Put it in a 22mm Tsunami.  It was a little confusing.  The mod came with a bunch of extra tubing for different batteries and no instructions.  I found a video.  So here it is in all it's glory.  Honestly, it was a little anticlimactic.  I was half expecting a monster flame thrower or something.  It is a nice little vape though.  The raw simplicity of the thing is kinda alluring.

    Take short breaks and have them spirit you away to some dark corner for "band meetings" to talk about the set list or something. Yeah, I can relate all too well. Thankfully, I'm a Navy brat so everyone I went to school with are scattered to the four winds. I've gone out of my way not to have a FB presence/account but some do manage to track me down every now and then. It makes me scratch my head why someone who didn't get along with me suddenly after thirty odd years feels like we're the best of friends now. Ugh indeed.

    Tam got a reaction from Walt in Smok V8 Stick   
    Basically, you can buy any mod that has a 510 connection with the Big Baby Beast tank, you don't need to buy the exact Smok V8 Stick. If it were me, I'd go with something that would allow me to customize the amount of power the coil in the tank gets instead of a fixed power source like what comes with the V8 stick. Other members around here will give you lots of suggestions on what they like best. What would you prefer, something with a non-removable battery that has high battery life (high mAh) or removable batteries so you can charge them outside the mod? You'd get better bang for the money if you switch to something else.

    Glad it's working for you. With a 1.8 ohm coil I usually vape at 7.8 watts but go up and down depending on what works best for me. Try going down a bit to see if that works even better. If not, you can always go up. The lower your power settings, the longer your charge will last, too.

    Different eliquids require different wattage/power options. Have you tried turning it down? Start low, vape. If it's not doing it for you, turn up a smidge and repeat. Maybe that will help?
