  1. There are still studies being done on whether there are long-term side effects from vaping. The vast majority of what you are going to find in relation to any side effects are all considered anecdotal by scientific standards. From personal experience, the only side effects I have experienced are: easier time breathing, lack of craving analogs, healthy weight loss (because I can exercise without running out of breath), and I smell better. Those are just a few of the longer-term side effects I have experienced from vaping. There were some short-term side effects when I first started, such as
  2. E-liquids can contain nicotine, but the nicotine is an additive and does not occur naturally in the other ingredients typically included in e-liquids, such as vegetable glycerine (VG), propylene glycol (PG), flavorings, distilled water and/or sweetener.
  3. I'll try to answer as best as I can and my answers/recommendations are based on United States information. The only mac compatible software for updating firmware that comes to mind is eScribe, which is used for updating the firmware on DNA chipsets. Something comparable (actually much better, in my opinion) to the smok alien 220w you have been using is any mod using a DNA 250 chip. As far as your specific requirements: escribe (Currently with US and International versions for mac, but again, for DNA chipsets only) Maybe not under $100, but you can find the Lost Vape
  4. The Lemo Drop will be closer. It's just a shorter Lemo 1. Otherwise it's identical. In fact, before they released the Lemo Drop as a tank, Eleaf sold a "Drop" kit for the Lemo. Another suggestion would be a Russian 91%. I started digging through some of my older gear. You started vaping too late @Walt. There were lots of wonderful "toys" even as recently as a couple of years ago. Oh...and the KPT 3. I have 4 or 5 of those. Awesome little MTL tanks.
  5. Little late to the game, but not too late. Might I suggest a Lemo 1 (if you can find one)? This is an awesome, and in my opinion highly underrated, MTL RTA. Single coil deck that is really easy to build on. It's kind of a PITA to fill, (a needlepoint bottle is virtually a must), but with MTL you aren't burning through as much liquid. This was actually the second tank I ever bought and I still keep it in regular rotation. I should have hit up one of the local stores during their "going out of business" sale...they had about a dozen marked down to $5 a pop.
  6. A little late to chime in on this, but... In regards to TFV8 tanks, coils and SS: The tanks are SS. The coil housings are SS. The coils themselves are Kanthal. In regards to using TC with Kanthal, the Hohm Wrecker Gen 2 and the Hohm Slice can do TC with Kanthal with their proprietary chip. Not sure about the Hohm Wrecker Gen 1. I've been using a Hohm Slice since December and run it almost exclusively in TC with Kanthal coils. So far these are the only two (possibly three) mods I know of that will run Kanthal in TC.
  7. Short answer: No, don't assume that. The following is purely based on my experience. When a manufacturer uses something other than kanthal for the coils they provide in a kit, they generally specify what type of metal those coils are made of. When it comes to the TFV12, SMOKTech mentions "Stainless Steel". That is for the actual tank construction, not the coils. I haven't pulled the trigger on a TFV12 yet, so I don't know if there is something in the (most likely poorly written) user manual that specifies the coil material. In this scenario I would err on the side of caution and
  8. It looks like you are using TCR mode of your gx350 (I'm assuming there is a TCR setting where you can dial in the specific setting for a specific type of wire) and that looks like the temp co-efficient for SS304 wire. If you are using SS304, then yes, that setting is good. If you aren't using SS304 then I can't recommend the proper setting. Your best bet would be to use the basic setting for whatever type of wire you are using (Ni for nickel, Ti for Titanium or SS for stainless steel). If it's kanthal, don't try to use it in TC mode.
  9. Se stai solo cercando il tubo vero e proprio allora consiglio il Dotmod Petri Lite. Non sono completamente sicuro del tasso di cambio tra l'euro e la sterlina britannica o dollaro americano, ma se Google fosse corretto, dovresti essere in grado di ottenere uno di questi per circa 120€. --------- The OP was asking about recommendations for a good quality mech mod for about 120 euros. I recommended the Dotmod Petri Lite. Not only is Google your friend, so is Google translate
  10. I'm currently on night shift. I have some time on my hands tonight and I needed something to keep my mind occupied in order to stay awake. This article and the study it cites were a good way to do just that. As a result of the digging I did, I'm going to go against the grain and play "Devil's Advocate" where this article is concerned. It is shoddy and misleading journalism, at best. The very first sentence of the article was inaccurate: "A recent study published in the journal of Environmental and Molecular Mutagenesis revealed that e-cigarettes do not cause cancer, unlike tobacco."
  11. In a nutshell, yes, I'm concerned about the long-term effects of vaping. And in a nutshell, I would rather be inhaling 4 or 5 or 6 vaporized liquids/chemicals with relatively unknown effects that are FDA approved than inhaling 7000+ carcinogens that are KNOWN to have adverse effects on health (and are also FDA approved, by the way). I'm curious about where you got your information about the toxicity of PG, thoughh. There are several old and inaccurate studies still floating around (and still being cited as 'gospel' by the fear mongering media) concerning PG. The conditions used durin
  12. I just received a Templar AIO kit by Vapor Talk in the mail yesterday. Since setting it up I have been vaping on it exclusively. Here are my first impressions. Packaging: Very nice box art. It is definitely representative of the Vapor Talk brand. If I hadn’t already seen photos of the device I would have been tearing into the box in anticipation of checking out the contents. Instead, I tore into the box in anticipation of actually getting my hands on what was inside. The contents: It’s no frills. You get the mod, 2 coils, the standard USB charging cable and a manual that is ea
  13. I'm taking the survey now. Funny thing about all the pictures...none of them has created an craving, urge, desire or need to vape, but some of them have caused a craving for red vines, created an urge to use a pencil to write this response by hand and an inexplicable desire to pick my nose.
  14. @Walt, What size core and what size wrap did you use?
