    No disrespect intended Kaya, but the "bikes" being discussed don't have pedals.
    Cany, Hope you are liking your up grade. Not my type of ride personally, but as long as you like it, keep riding!

    Squid got a reaction from Liz1992 in Aspire puxos kinda broken need help   
    No guarantee it will work, but clean it up really well and put a couple drops of super glue around the out side edges of the recess the disk sits in and carefully set the disk in place. Just be careful, as too much glue could cause some to get between the disk and it's contact points.

    Squid got a reaction from Tam in COVID-19 How's everything going in your area?   
    Personally, it's almost business as usual for me. I work for a government contractor deemed essential. Everyone that puts what we make together is still working. Almost all of the support staff, engineers, planning, and anyone else that doesn't need to physically touch the product to do their job has been given a laptop and told to work from home. The people that are at work range from those that seem to think it is inevitable, and they are going to get it anyway and have not changed habits at all to those that you can't even talk to because if you get closer than 15 feet or so they start yelling to not get too close. One in particular gets nearly hysterical if someone walks in the room she works in, it's approx 20X60 feet and there are 6 others that work in the room, well spaced out.
    All schools, colleges, barbers, etc have been closed. The schools until mid April at least. Auto mechanics, grocery stores, liquor stores (yup), auto parts stores, construction and contractors and a few others have been deemed essential and are able to be open. Small businesses that can be run by one person are allowed to stay open, but must limit the number of customers inside at one time. A couple car garages have closed but not many. Restaurants are take out only no eating in, fast food and coffee shops are drive thru only. The local roads are mostly empty of cars. A few, apparently family, groups of 3 or 4 walking together, way more than usual. I travel I-90 to work and there is slightly less traffic, more trucks, but still a lot of out of state cars.

    Squid got a reaction from cany in flavor ban   
    A judge in NY issued a stay on the ban of flavored juices while an appeal brought by local companies is heard. We still have our flavored juices for now.

    Squid got a reaction from Jeffb in Before We All Panic.....   
    Talked to an employee at the local Vape shop yesterday (first chance I had to get there since Heir Cuomo banned flavors), I live in Central NY, Rome to be exact. According to what the employee told me Bebop is pretty close to the truth. The employee told me that from what he understands the ban on flavors will be approx. 90 days. When the state will look to see if there is a swing in the purchases of juices and cigarettes, if there is a downturn in juice sales and an upswing in cigs, they may change the ban, or keep it going. This is all hearsay at this point from 1 vape store employee.
     
    The way I see it, I have less than a week to stock up on juice and find out if I can still get the ingredients to start making my own. The worst case I guess I can go back to the smelly, expensive guaranteed to kill me analogs. I have gotten down to 1.5mg of nic in my juice, but can't seem to make the last step to zero. Good luck to those that can!

    Squid got a reaction from Il refIëcteDreamz™lI in Smok Pen 22 Blinking 4 Times And Not Working.   
    After doing a little research, as I do not have one of these, I think I can explain. If you go to info page on Smok site you will see that the tank does not come off like a traditional tank. The bottom of the tank is the top of the battery. You have to empty all the juice out, take the glass off, then unscrew the coil. At that time you can then access the center pin to gently lift it as described above, or clean out any juice that has seeped past the o-rings, or clean out what ever is shorting the coil to the battery. A search of the web for "Smok 22 troubleshooting" revealed a bunch of issues with these either shorted or open, with suggestions on how to fix each issue. Way too much for me to try and list here. Hope this helps.

    It's possible that the drop broke the coil in the atomizer or possibly something internal in the battery when you dropped it. As Tam said first thing to do is change the atomizer.

    1st piece of advise using a mech mod, read, learn and understand Ohms Law so you don't become a statistic. That IMHO is the 1st step in using a mech.

    Squid got a reaction from Walt in Needing advice   
    The tpriv only will support down to.1 ohm. Your .15 ohm coil is very close to the limit, and due to production tolerances and other factors, the mod may be reading it as too low of a resistance or a shorted coil. I suggest a coil in the .25 ohm range. That should get you going.

    So the point of the salt nic is to deliver high nic without being harsh?
    If that's the case, then I need to stop thinking I need to try it. About 3 months ago I started cutting 3mg in half. Been trying to reduce my nic intake since March of 2011 when I started vaping.

    Squid got a reaction from Walt in tank getting warm while vape   
    The act of vaping is driven by heat. When you vape the cartomiser (your type of "tank") is going to get warm. How warm depends on the Ohms of the coil, the voltage of the battery, and how long and how often you drag on it. If you are chain vaping, it will get quite warm. My tank, a Melo3 gets quite warm on my way home from work while I take many long hits during the 40 minute ride home.

    Congrats. After almost 6 years of vapong, I have just cut my subohm tanks to 1.5mg, and my ohm-plus tanks to 4ishmg. Working toward that 0mg goal slowly.

    Squid got a reaction from Walt in Eleaf ikonn 220 with Ello Sub-Ohm tank   
    For setting up in wattage mode, it's pretty much the same for all mods.
    For coils under 1 ohm, I start around 10watts and slowly increase until I get a vape I like. You'll get a burnt taste if you go too high, back down half a watt or so and you have the sweet spot for that juice. As an example I run .5ohm coils around 25 watts. Sometimes a little higher sometimes a little lower, depending on the juice. Then there are a few juices I get on occasion that I will run as high as 45 watts.
    There is no magic setting that a specific mod will run at, just a ball park.
