    How funny that we both use "old" equipment, @cany. It's been a few years since I stopped buying all the new shiny things that came out and am happy with my Eleaf iStick Power 80W and Aspire Triton 2 tank. Just looked and it seems that Eleaf just "brought back" the iStick in a new iStick Power 2. The only real change I can see is that they stuck some leather on the grip and the price is higher.
    Sorry, @Boston Brian, no help with your top choices, although I will say that I've never had any luck with the Vapresso brand of anything. Welcome to Vapor Talk and good luck finding a new rig that suits you best! You might try doing a search on Youtube to see some reviews on your top three.

    No. Absolutely not. E-cigarettes has nothing to do with Covid-19, which is a virus.

    The vape mail ban isn't working very well, I received a vapefly Siegfried kit last week, also received a vapefly Brunhilde the week before. I received 2 orders from China, and 1 from Europe.

    Hi all! Yes, it's all too quiet around here. I check in and keep tabs on who is registering. So many of the vendors signing up are hawking CBD or other products of that type. Not many actual vapers or wanna be vapers signing up these days.
    With the vape mail ban in the works I've been stock piling all kinds of supplies. @FXRich I hope you'll keep us updated on how your vendor experiences wind up.
    In other news... how the heck are you all? I want to hear how you've been, what you've been up to... who wants to go first?  😄

    Congrats on your retirement, @VapeMama! I just put my notice of retirement in a few weeks ago and my last day of work will be June 30th. Trying to get everything done so I can leave with a clean slate is keeping me very busy right now but my plan is to work extremely hard at doing absolutely NOTHING for the whole month of July. After that, plans are to tear into my apartment one room at a time to clean and purge and reorganize. Can't wait!
    Have fun with the kids and grandkids! I bet they keep you very busy.  😄

    I still poke my way in here to see what's going on. Since I retired last fall, I have begun to wonder how I had time to work! Seems I'm busier than when I was working full time. Still vaping, 7 1/2 years now. Have been DIYing juice for me and hubs for about 5-6 years.
    Between trying to keep track of the grandkids and kids, that keeps me hopping! Love every minute of it though.
    You guys be careful on those bikes! My one grandson had an accident on his in May. Thank goodness he's on the mend and doing well.

    Tam got a reaction from kayakiit in 2 side effects I am experiencing from vaping   
    The first thing I'd suggest is to change the coil to a new one. I find that, when my coil is getting gunked up it tends to make me cough.
    If you're vaping less and getting cranky, then try a juice with a little more nicotine in it. That will give you the same amount of nic while vaping less that you got when you were vaping more. Does that make sense?
    Good luck, and let us know if any of this works for you!

    Well, it's been about a year since this thread started - as well as the pandemic picking up steam. How's everyone doing?
    We're doing well so far. My SO's father caught it in the care center where he lives but thank goodness he was asymptomatic. Since then he's been testing negative and has gotten his two shots. We're still waiting for ours. Apparently, when the Governor put "educators" on this list as priority for shots, those of us in higher ed don't fit into that category. We were relegated to getting it when the general public got theirs despite him wanting us open for business. We finally got notice last week that we're now on the list for late March.
    Other than jacking up my SUV running over a big piece of metal left on the highway courtesy of a construction truck tonight, things aren't totally awful. That assessment may change when the guys at the shop get a look at the undercarriage and the twisted piece of metal under there. Also blew out one of my front tires - and I just bought brand new ones about a month ago. *sigh* No one was hurt. That's the most important thing but still... 😞
    Hope to hear some good news from y'all!

    Here in NE Ohio things are steadily opening back up. Retail, restaurants, beauty/barber shops and SOME entertainment venues are open (indoor trampoline parks, bowling alleys, etc.). Movie theaters aren't open yet. Most primary care physicians here are doing telephone visits or video visits.  About 1/2 of the people wear masks in public. I do only because I work in long term care and I don't want to carry anything I may pick up from the general public to the residents. Assisted living facilities/areas are permitted to have visitors but only outdoors. ALL long term care staff have to be tested (and every one is negative) before the facility can re open to visitors coming into the building. (Our testing date this June 26.) We are all screened with temps taken and a health questionnaire prior to clocking in each day. Our facility has had ZERO cases, staff and residents. We are fortunate as several facilities in our general area have had several to many cases among their staff and residents. Life is good!

    While I don't have anything I'm looking to sell, DiscountVapers is a company I've done business with for years now and do not hesitate to recommend for people looking for more inexpensive things. The link below is for their complete kits. The only brand I prefer not to buy anymore is Smok. In my experience, Smok products haven't performed well for me and I find their tanks tend to leak like a sieve. Others my like it but I don't. My preferred brand is ELeaf, although Aspire, Kangor, VooPoo, and Joye eGo are all proven brands. When I started vaping (over 8 years ago now), my first kit was an eGo variable voltage stick battery and a CE4 clearomizer.
    I hope some of this helps a bit. Good luck!

    We just got the "use non-medical masks" whenever you go out order a few days ago, too. My SO was telling his boss that he's thankful I never throw anything away because a few years ago I purchased a box of 50 charcoal infused masks when there was a lot of flu going around. We had them on hand and now they've become very useful. I feel vindicated.  *sniffs*

    They just update the rules for our area today. No gatherings of any kind except those living under your household, no exceptions including religious gatherings. Everyone must wear face coverings now enforced by law enforcement (fines/jail time). Getting pretty wild out there.

    Here all but the essential businesses are closed. The hubby and I are both in health care so we are still working. I'm in long term care and it's getting quite challenging with all the new procedures and so on in place. We have been on total lockdown for 2 weeks now. No visitors in, no residents out, staff screening with temps and questionaires regarding respiratory health every day before clocking in.  We are all wearing masks when in contact with our residents, who are getting restless, bored and some are getting depressed at not seeing family in person for so long. Hubs works at one of the local hospitals. Most nights (he's on midnights) are slow. News reports say the surge hasn't hit us yet.
    In our area we have approximately 50 cases and there have been 5 deaths in our county. with most of those being fragile healthwise before contracting the virus. Fortunately in our city, there have not been any deaths related to this.
    Most people are abiding by the "shelter in place" order of the governor. Communities have stepped up their game in patrolling parks and so on to reduce the small groups that do gather. Restaurants are all carry-out or delivery at this point. We do grocery shopping for 2 weeks at a time and homebodies anyway!

    I don’t even know what day or time it is....
    I'm in Florida now.  It’s pretty much stay at home.  All but “essential” businesses are closed, schools and malls closed. But there are still a lot of people out and about.  Lots of masks.  It’s weird.  I personally am devistated.  I am a music teacher full time no more.  I’m building up an on-line business on the side.  My wife is lucky, she gets to work from home and it’s saving us.  There are a few reports of cases in my area but it’s mostly southeast, Miami area hit the hardest.  My new hobby is fishing.  There is a lot of time for that.  Most in my family are doing fine and can work from home.  We’ll all get thru this but it looks like another month at least.  I really feel for the families suffering thru this.  There are many not so lucky and deeply impacted by this.  Hang in there, folks. We’ll make it.  I don’t know a single person afflicted with the disease but bless them all.
