    Bebop got a reaction from Walt in Can I just say.......   
    Hi Tam!
    Yes, it's still every bit as disgusting...BUT,   half of the "smokers" were vapers so, some consolation.   I've sort of forgotten what it's like to be around smokers.  Everyone in my circles has either quit or converted to vaping.

    I guess the good news is even with a direct short this battery puts out a fair warning things are not right. That gotta be one hot potato long before it blows.

    you have to cut it with something less than 3mg otherwise you're fighting a losing battle.
    If I understand you correctly, you cut 80 ml with 20 MLS of 18mg which gave you about 100mls of 6mg juice.  adding more 18mg is just going to increase its strength

    Bebop got a reaction from Tam in Wattage   
    Forget the wattage.  it's not important.
    whatever coil you put in, set the voltage at about 3.7 V.   then vape it and adjust up from there. somewhere in there you will find a sweet spot. Make a note of the wattage (watts are a product of voltage accross the resistance (ohm))
    whenever you use a different ohm coil, do the same thing.  If your using the same coil, vape the wattage you found works.  
    the higher the voltage (or wattage - same difference) the more you will shorten coil life. So if you want longer life, be conservative in your power settings. 
    A brand new coil will take higher power for a while.  But you are likely to burn it out faster. there is always a trade off.
    I usually vape any coil I make at 3.9 - 4.2 volts and let the wattage fall where it may. (I get long coil life - 2 to 4 weeks). You can't adjust voltage and wattage separately.  they are tied together.  When you "raise the wattage" you are really just increasing the voltage across the coil.  Raise the voltage and the watts goes up. lower the voltage and the watts go down. 
    Its fine to remember the wattage and use that number to set your mod as manufacturers seem to realize that people focus in the wattage. But it's really the voltage you are changing. 
    It's like a car.  The speedometer doesnt make the car go.  You dont "raise the speedometer", (wattage), you give it more gas (voltage).

    Bebop reacted to Earthling789 in battery sizing   
    Rich, you are correct... I was talking about the LG HG2, and my brain was focused on the Samsung 30Q, which are also 3000mAh batteries, but only rated for 15A continuous discharge.  The LG are rated for 20A continuous (and tested to prove it).
    I've used both the Samsung, and LG batteries (25R, 30Q, HE2, and HG2), and I love the Samsung 25R (blue and green versions)... they retain near full capacity even after 1000 recharge cycles.  I'm not a huge fan of the 30Q, anymore, because they don't hold but 50-60% capacity after about 350 cycles, but they are great for that first year.  The LG is the opposite... the HE2 tend to lose about 20-30% capacity ability after ~400 cycles, but so far, the HG2 are still hitting near 3000mAh even after 400+ cycles. 
    I'm about to purchase a new block of batteries to replace our aging stock of  30+ 18650's.  My wife currently goes through two (sometimes three) batteries a day, and I go through three singles (or two to three pairs in the dual-battery-mods).  So, I'll be picking up six fresh Samsung 25R-5 (green) for our single-battery mods, and probably four pairs of LG HG2 for the dual-battery mods.  The old ones will be headed to recycling!
     
    Low Ohm is subjective, but most of us would agree that 0.15 Ohms is "low".  Personally, I define "low" as anything below 0.5 Ohms.  Sub-ohm is anything less than 1.0 Ohm.

    it's normal for it to change a little bit, it usually goes a little higher with use but that is a pretty big change.

    LIL -   Smok says blink 4 times means that you have a short at battery and atomizer. 
     
    you need to replace the atomizer (coil) (which probably means the whole mouthpiece/tank) most likely, Or try taking it apart and cleaning it and looking for any obvious reasons for an electrical short

    Too cool, too cool!!!  
    We've done a lot of recordings by recording live tracks and mixing them for the purpose of letting potential clients know exactly how we sound.  Mistakes and all left in.  This is our first go around at actual "studio" recordings.  Everybody is learning a lot.  There is some pressure as one member has a benchmark quality he wants to achieve but the album will not be for sale.  We plan on having it pressed into vinyl just for us and close friends.  There is no marketing pressure involved at least.

    Bebop got a reaction from Tam in Part came loose when cleaning. No idea from where   
    If you took apart the actual atomizer, (coil) then it's the insulating ring of the coil.
    If you just took apart the tank then it's probably the the insulator between the glass and the base.
     
    it's hard to tell what size it is from your picture with no perspective.  the coil insulator is small.  the glass insulator is large.

    I always use spaced wraps, I make the coil using tight wraps, then stick a needle between the wraps to get them spaced evenly after it is installed in the RBA, works for me.

    Bebop reacted to Tam in Many vape stores are indicating that the ego-c & ego-twist lines have been discontinued.   
    Like you, @Bebop, I started with the eGo batteries, but the latest and greatest at the time was an eGo-T. Shortly after I got my first kit the eGo-C pass through came out and I upgraded. Then the Vision Spinner came out (very like an eGo Twist but with a slightly bigger capacity battery), and the rest is history of an empty bank account.

    very interesting.   I see now it's a vertical coil.  but why can't you just pull out the cotton and then stuff some more in there? I know, easier said than done but it might be a fun project....
    it's probably a press fit top on that coil so would be tough to get to.....

    Hey Bebop, there is nothing wrong with that at all. Everybody has their own preferences, this just happens to be mine. Yeah I heard the premium was good stuff, I haven't used it personally. I don't always try new things, but every once in a while I find something good...lol

    is the top box  not turning on at all?  or is it just not producing vapor?   I'm assuming you have the subtank mini tank on there?   what coils are you using?  do you have a separate charger?   and please take the batteries out and make sure they are not rusted and corroded.....
    hey,  I'm just trying to talk you off the ledge. 
    the sub tank mini is one of the most reliable vapes I've ever owned.   I'm sure we can work it out.

    need more info.
    do you build your own coils? only store bought?
    are you a heavy vaper?   like lots of vapor and power?
    what are the specifics on your beloved set up?
    what resistance?  what wattage do you set? how much do you vape? what nicotine content do you use?
