  1. One of my FB "friends" (a co-worker) posted this too. She's the one always on my a** how vaping is so bad. Whatever (that's my mood today!)
  2. Like now sitting here at work really wishing it was 11:15 pm (my clock out time!). Sent from my XT1565 using The Vapor Talk mobile app
  3. @Tam, I know I haven't been as active here lately, seems work, life, etc, just get in the way of doing the stuff I'd rather do, like be here!
  4. Contratulations Tam! This is the friendliest forum on vaping I found. That's why I stick around.
  5. I read this in a blog called Vaping Post this morning. Thought it quite interesting seeing that it was done in the good ole USA. (I wanted to copy/paste the link and my computer wouldn't cooperate.) Air Sampling confirms secondhand vapor is harmless Results obtained from an air sample of a small non-ventilated vape shop, clearly indicate that the amount of toxic substances present in the air where a lot of vaping is taking place, are of insignificant levels. The California Department of Public Health has been carrying out air sampling in vape shops throughout the state, as part of its initiative to determine the health effects of second-hand vapor exposure. Earlier today in his blog, Public Health Expert Dr. Michael Siegel pointed out that the results for this report were obtained from a relatively small and non-ventilated vape shop, where many of the employees and 13 customers were actively vaping while the sampling was taking place, hence what would be considered a situation presenting a high level of exposure to second-hand vapor. However, given all these unfavourable conditions, the results still reported no dangerous levels of exposure to any hazardous chemicals. The main results of the air sampling go as follows : Nicotine: Not detected Glycidol: Not detected Formaldehyde: 7.2 ppb Diacetyl: Not detected using standard method 2,3-Pentanedione: Not detected using standard method Acetyl butyryl: Not detected using standard method Acetoin: Not detected using standard method Acetone: Not detected Ethyl benzene: Not detected m,p-Xylene: Not detected o-Xylene: Not detected Toluene: Not detected Acetaldehyde: Not detected Acetonitrile: Not detected alpha-pinene: Not detected Benzene: Not detected Chloroform: Not detected d-Limonene: Not detected Methylene chloride: Not detected Methyl methacrylate: Not detected n-Hexane: Not detected Styrene: Not detected Finally putting fears about formaldehyde to rest? Dr. Siegel pointed out that the level of formaldehyde detected, is consistent with the levels normally found in indoor and outdoor air levels under baseline conditions, adding that the only other chemicals detected were ethanol (alcohol) and isopropyl alcohol. “This study, although conducted under very high exposure conditions in a small, non-ventilated vape shop with many employees and customers vaping and clouds of vapor visible, did not document any dangerous levels of exposure to any hazardous chemical. Nicotine exposure was essentially non-existent. Formaldehyde exposure was no different than in many indoor and outdoor environments at baseline. Acetone, acetoin, other aldehydes, toluene, benzene, and xylene were not detected. Chemicals that have been associated with “popcorn lung” were also not detected by the standard method.” stated Siegel. No justification for governments to ban vaping “This study adds to the evidence that under real-life conditions, ‘secondhand vaping’ does not appear to pose any significant health risks.” concluded the public health expert. He added that whilst he himself has been behind many of the smoking bans that took place, based on this current evidence he fails to see a reason as to why governments should ban vaping in public spaces. “With regards to vaping, I just don’t see any reasonable evidence at this time that it poses any significant health hazard to bystanders.”
  6. A Blessed Easter Holiday to all! Here in NE Ohio we are expecting low 70's for the weekend, though a little rain is predicted also. A rather quiet weekend for us, hubby and I both work (that's what you get when you are in healthcare!).
  7. I have my Innokin Coolfire 4 TC with a Limitless Plus (.3ohm SS316L single coil) with Creamy Grape (DIY) at 50W, 375 degrees F at the moment.

  9. Thank you! Here it is! Sent from my XT1565 using The Vapor Talk mobile app
  10. Got my AL 85! So far I'm loving this little thing that fits perfectly in my smallish hands! The Baby Beast tank with the pre-installed Q2 .4 ohm coil at 60W is working well. Vaping on DIY Galaxy Grape. Now if I could figure out how to post a picture from my phone...... Sent from my XT1565 using The Vapor Talk mobile app
  11. Ordered an AL85 with Baby Beast tank, RBA deck and some premade coils for the BB. Now the wait begins.......... for vape mail!
  12. I've been working on this one a few weeks and finally got it to my liking. 40PG/60VG base Cup A Joe (CAP) 5% - French Vanilla (TFA) - Sweet Cream (TFA OR CAP) 7% - Sweetener (TFA) 2% I let this one age about a week.
  13. To celebrate my 3 year vape-versary (Feb. 8th) I bought myself an Innokin Coolfire IV TC 75W mod, a new Limitless Plus RTA, and some assorted vaping "stuff". I'm not a high-wattage vaper so I'm hoping to get the same good experience with the Coolfire IV I've gotten with my EVic mini. 40-50W suits me fine, at least right now. That may change, maybe not. Who knows. Hmm, may need more batteries............... If anyone had told me 3+ years ago that vaping would get me off the stinkies for good, I'd have probably reacted with "yeah right". Thank goodness for the co-worker that talked me into trying vaping. I've felt physically better than I have in years, my allergy medications have been cut in half, now just to get the extra weight off. >>sigh<< Despite all the money I've spent on vaping gear, I know I have still SAVED money not buying stinkies.
