One clear example of showmen would be looking at the vaping contests some places hold where people compete to make the largest of the bunch. For those who simply want to impress everybody by blowing clouds around it can resemble how it was for cigar smokers annoying the average cig smoker in contrast. The analogy being rude and inconsiderate.
Here I can increase the vapor levels without appearing to be a volcano blowing it's top. I could easily start running with 100% VG and hand picked flavors to see much better results at making gushers but prefer the increase in seeing the flavors brought to life more robustly with the improvements in hardwares like running with better tanks. The experience of having gone from CE2 top coiled long wicked 1.6ml as well as blank refillable cig alike cartridges that saw a bit too much dry wicking at times as well as the poor vapor production to the latest BDC, BCC, BVC, sub ohm tanks on better made VV/VW batteries and mods has been a tremendous leap over the last 2 1/2yrs. time.
Lol. Ah yes, this is a good comparison.
I lack in experience as far as time and equipment goes. Though I do research. I am still stuck on the for-mentioned. How ever, they have helped me to finally quit smoking.
I still have a hard time finding juices I like. Then I wonder, maybe it's not the juice but the equipment I'm using. Maybe it's time to step up my game. I'm just not sure what to invest in. I don't want something that makes me choke. I felt self conscious being a smoker because it became such a taboo. So I want something that is less conspicuous...and I definitely don't want to make bellows of vape.
At first I didn't actually know what to think since while having waited for some time to find out more about "smokeless" or electronic cigarettes to use at times and places when you couldn't light up as well as the substitution of smokeless for smoke there wasn't much information even heard. You didn't even find a single report in any media just a few years ago until the "Fear Monger" scare tactic fabrications came about when the Big $$$$ interests realized vaping would kill off the Big Ts(tobacco companies) and the Big Pharma was not going to have a market for nic patches, gums, chemical loaded nicotine inhalers(some 40 chemicals to an the PG/VG, flavoring(s), nicotine seen with ecigs).
The FDA at first was pressured to investigate by the Obama admin which ended up setting off in their own direction treating ecigs as unregulated medical devices wanting a total ban until overruled by a federal judge! The shipments coming into shopping malls, tobacco and specialy shops back in 2008-09 being detained had to be then let through. And of course those all had "made in China" on them as the industry has since grown phenomenally there.
In contrast to the very few mech mods and cig look alikes seen then the early bird APV(Advanced Personal Vaporizers) like the Smoktech Vamo V2 were just out back in late 2012 as well as 650mah eGo batteries with 2250mah being the long life for 18650s. Once I started sampling for a then new to come ejuice vendor the sadly lacking CE2 clearomizers, DCT tanks(510 threaded cartomizer inserts) suffered greatly when trying to evaluate each new flavor most by the same while still off on those from a few other sources tried. 2013 was a long year to get to the 1300mah eGo VV/VW batteries and SMOK Tumbler tanks that definitely were the rule not only for me but for those who had recommended them running them at 6-10w on the old 3-15w, and Innokin 6-11w batteries and mods.
2014 went by much better while still needing that extra edge now being seen with the sub ohm tanks that are geared for higher watts without turning into the hot vape many still fear as seen with the too high on volts for CE2-CE4 outdated long wicked compared to the BCC, BDC, and especially updated clearomizers seeing BVC or Bottom Vertical Coil and even word on BDVC or Bottom Dual Vertical Coil in the 1.6ml eGo type clearomizers. Those still sadly lack however since while the dry wicking is gone the low output seen on eGo type batteries and still able to crank volts, watts leaves those limited.
Now besides RDAs and mech mods one other new tank lately supports 20w-100w on the newer, latest VW mods seen out. There's a lot to take in however to find the winning combo that will suit your personal needs the best however! Once you get as far as seeing great vapor and flavors made far more robust in the process the cig alikes and small eGo type batteries will tend to sit on the shelves. Yet I still keep a few Tumblers in use while having two mod stands with VW type batteries along with a few mods running typically for a few fast grab menthol flavors or those were menthol was requested. That can work at times like a drink on the ice during the warmer weather.
