  1. From the CASAA newsletter a couple days ago... it looks like many states and a few cities are considering full-ban on ALL vaping products, not just flavors... all of these will be challenged in court, I hope: CT - (Pending) - “State Leaders Call for Ban on Vaping, e-cigarette products.” (Sept. 13) CA - Emily Deruy (The Mercury News) - “San Jose councilwoman proposes ban on vaping products.” (Sept. 15) Find your council district here. City Council member list and contact info, here. CA - (Heads Up) - “Governor Gavin Newsom Signs Executive Order
  2. My wife loves her Nautilus, and uses it more than her subtank mini or nano. She loves the tighter draw and flavor, more than the open-draw and cloud she gets from the other tanks. We were out of coils for it for a while so she had no choice but to use the subtanks, but as soon as I found some coils for her natty, she was using it within minutes of the mail arriving, lol. I've not used any of my older tanks for a long while, but I've been eyeing my old Aerotanks on the shelf. Clouds are nice, but I remember the flavor seemed to be "better" in the Aerotanks and Nautilus. The draw is mu
  3. Sweet bakery flavors, sweet candy flavors, sweet fruit flavors... or just something to add sweetness to flavors (marshmallow, sweet-cream, stevia, etc.)?
  4. I am not familiar with the device you are using, but dual-battery mods operate batteries in series or parallel. In series, you double the nominal Voltage capability from 3.7V to 7.4V, so if in series, exceeding 4.5V is perfectly fine. If the batteries are in parallel, the voltage does not change from 3.7V (nominal) or 4.2V (max charge). Batteries in parallel also double the Amp-load / discharge capability. If you are using two 20A batteries in series, they still can only handle 20A load, but in parallel, the load handling capability doubles to 40A. Make sense? Your device shows 0.26
  5. 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
  6. I mentioned those above... yes I recommend them. Be aware they are 15A continuous discharge, but higher capacity (3000mAh), compared to LG HE2. They will last a little longer between recharges, but won't handle high wattage / low resistance builds very well. Use a vaping calculator to determine how many Amps your builds need... then get a battery that will exceed those requirements, not just "meet them".
  7. You will want a battery that provides continuous 20A discharge rate... there are several that have these specs, but these are the ones I recall off the top of my head... Samsung 25R (green wrapper), LG HE2 (red wrapper), and Sony VTC6 (green wrapper). All of these can sustain 20A discharge, but will support burst discharge of 30A or 35A. If you are vaping in the 80-100W range, even at that low of a resistance, you should be safe with even a 15A battery (Samsung 30Q or LG HG2). The higher the mAh capacity, the lower the continuous discharge ratings. The 15A batteries I've listed are larger
  8. Received my SMOK Mag 225W TC kit in Royal Purple with matching TFV12 Prince tank (cobra edition) from 101Vape, and it's the right-handed version, so you can view the screen (and not push buttons accidentally) when you hold it in your right hand I'm loving the trigger design and ease of swapping batteries via the "semi-auto magazine-style" holder. The tank is taking some getting use to, due to the massive air-flow and super-huge drip-tip design/style... but I do like the 8ml capacity and ease of filling... compared to my go-to Toptank Minis... I also received a new SMOK TFV8 Baby Beast
  9. You are welcome! Yes, TC requires coils to be SS, Ni200, or Titanium. Some mods will operate TC on Kanthal wire, but I've not had much luck getting those to work consistently. Personally, I prefer SS for Temp Control, but your mileage may vary. Yes, prime the coil with a little juice, then assemble the tank, fill the tank, and let it sit for at least 5 minutes to fully soak the cotton. This ensures you don't fry the cotton/coil with a "dry" hit, which will ruin the coil and possibly pass the burnt flavor to the rest of the juice in the tank (wasting it). The wattage necessar
  10. I've never seen or heard of one... did you pick one up? Post some pics and let us know what you think....
  11. Welcome! First of all, where to start... My best advice for you is to visit a local vape-shop and speak with a knowledgeable clerk. Let them know you are looking for a good starter-setup with variable Wattage device from a reputable company (Kanger, Aspire, SMOK, eLeaf, GeekVape, Innokin, Wismec, VooPoo, and many others), which utilizes external 18650 batteries (or at least has an internal battery pack of 2000mAh or larger). You would also want a good tank design from a reputable company (Kanger, Smok, Aspire, Uwell, etc.). You should avoid coils (as a noobie) which are strictly for s
  12. Hi, Shorty... and welcome! There is no "best" for any device... the best advice I can give is to start at low Watts (like 15-20W), vape, and if you don't get the flavor/cloud you want, bump it up a Watt or three and try again... rinse, repeat... Once you get a hot or burnt flavor, back it down a Watt or two. This will be the sweet-spot for that coil and juice combo. Every juice you use will have a different sweet-spot (bakery flavors will prefer a cooler vape at lower watts than a candy or fruit flavor). Also, as a coil ages, the sweet-stop will change, requiring more or less power (ju
  13. I married an RN, lol... I'm use to hearing the sage advice of a nurse Glad to hear you and hubby are doing well, and hope your foot heals soon! @cany ... Good to hear from you too! Been reading a few of the recent posts, and glad to see you're still active in helping the noobs @Bebop and @Walt Doing recording work sounds like you're living the dream (musically)... It's great to have your passion immortalized on vinyl or at least digitally. I tried the whole pod-thing as well... bought a Penguin (v1 and v2)... both were "novelties" for me, and the wife doesn't care for them
  14. Hey Bebop, glad to hear from you, and glad you're doing well! Speaking of "outdated knowledge", lol... a new vape store opened up near my physical therapy office, so we stopped in there the other day to check it out (and see if they had any Kanger SSOCC coils). I was amazed at the cases full of "POD systems" and these tiny little AIO or stick devices. I was totally lost on all the new devices, especially the POD systems! The other extreme was all the 200+W devices and massive tanks! Where is all the mid-range stuff? Where's all the Ohm-plus coils for those of us that prefer 1.2-1.8
  15. Wow, I find it hard to leave gear in "unopened boxes", lol... although I do have a couple of toptank minis, one nano, and a coupe of Kayfuns and Russians still in boxes. I do love my Top kits! My two Platinum units are my go-to daily-drivers, mostly because the paint on the white/red/black ones tend to wear off over time, so I tend to use the colorful ones when I'm out and about (less likely to sit and hold it like I do when watching TV). I hear what you are saying about Kanthal and coil-killing juices. My wife's juice is a coil killer (lots of cinnamon) and she will only use Kanthal coils
