You would recognise the first one there easy enough if you ran any CE2 stuff!

Never heard of them. But at this time so many new places are popping up it's Mission Impossible to keep track! And a real problem is who is actually making the ejuice! In NY one place got busted for not seeing child proof caps put on their brand of ejuice lately showing some are rushing to jump on the band wagon just to grab the $$$!

Meanwhile picked up a few more tanks including the Herakles by Sense that is much better then the Melo by a long shot plus one even better being the FreeMax by Starre which can handle 20-100w but gets hot for sure right at 100w! At 70-80w the vape is just the Atlantis at 30w or so! And right when deciding to grab a deal on a third 50w iStick the news about the new 40w with temp control some might interested in as well as the Innoking iTaste MVP 3.0 Pro 60w ame up.

To compete with iSmoka Innokin matched the iStick 50w 4400mah battery with their own 60w 4500mah battery! The mod stands taller then the MVP 2.0 6-11w, the MVP 20W, and the 3.0 20w model I skipped over. Both iStick 50w and the 3.0 Pro feature temp control as well as the setting lock. When going to recharge either however you first unlock the settings as I find that has to be done with the eGo-V V3, V4 batteries as well. And now waiting for the Aspire Triton with RDA option to be stateside already out at a few Hong Kong vendors but still on pre-order. 3.5ml capacity there.

Nicoticket has been around awhile and are excellent!! I would consider them a high end supplier.

They are also one of the few out there that are transparent when showing customers whats in the juice they are vaping.
He has all his juices sent out and tested for Diketones (or Diacetyl), and post the results good or bad. Most flavors that have some in them, mainly custardy notes, are just barely over detectable levels. Which are good numbers in the E-juice buisiness. Transparency like that is something we simply do not see much of.

I do think the Diacaetyl issue is blown out of proportion a bit,but I certainly don't want to be vaping high concentrations of it.
At least here, you exactly how much, if any, is present in the flavors you choose.
Something most suppliers will shy away from or try and avoid talking about. So, gotta give Nicoticket props fro that right?

The fear promoting opponents to vaping would certainly be the ones to take advantage with the Diacaetyl issue trying to make that just another center piece to work from. The media reported rat poison in one instance as well as antifreeze found in ecigs when the science shows another form of Glycol replaced lead and mercury in antifreeze in the effort to detoxify what we now use! PG itself discovered as an effective air sanitizer durring WW II when found to kill off the Influenza virus and later was found helpful for asthmatics and used in inhalers since. PG is also used to blast out heating/air duct works in hospitals where you can't just spray in any chemical cleaners.

As for that particular I have to wonder if they made the Top Ten US vendors list as I know Crystal Canyon Vapes did and in the Top 5 for 2013. I've worked with the owner of CCV and know well he is quite transparent as we have discussed his intentions from the start never to see additives put in use with his stuff! He wants everything kept as natural as possible and I've had the chance to find that out when comparing to other sources.

(One success compared to complete fail was seen with CCV's Artic Ice Spearmint/Menthol blend put up against Vista Vapors own spearmint menthol where CCV prevails as a smooth vape while the other? Vaped like gasoline! )

Having gotten in samples from various vendors however most haven't been found with problems like a few. Perhaps the particular sample? would be not what you want or how it was blended. With most of the oldest vendors you wouldn't expect too many issues while the latest fly by nights may be a concern after hearing about that NY vendor along with a quick increase of brands suddenly seen available.

$$$ is a big motivator that can't be ignored when maintaining a high degree of actual quality is put on the back burner! One thing I could say I wouldn't mind seeing one bit is some type of ingredients on labeling requirement as well as some type of standardization without being too rigid or Cig Alike brand favored only. With all the fly by night both domestic and certainly imports it makes sense to have some type of screening measures inplace as far as public safety is concerned. We pay the taxes for Big Brother to watch out for us! Not to let Corps $$$ rule however!

And speaking of concerns over Diacetyl and flavoring with it I thought you would want to see the Dept. of Labor's own view under the OSHA section! HAZARD COMMUNICATION GUIDANCE FOR DIACETYL AND FOOD FLAVORINGS CONTAINING DIACETYL

Have a half dozen Atlantis tanks already getting the 5ml replacements for each so I wasn't in a rush for the V2 Mega obviously but will be looking at the new Triton with RDA option to consider being a 3.5ml tank. The Herakles by Sense and the better FreeMax by Starre were two looked at and both fare much better then the iSmoka Eleaf Melo tank while Innokin's iSub tank also does quite well. That came with the just release MVP 3.0 Pro 60w.

Now here I will show the collection of mods I use most often while you won't see the other Vamo types or the ZNA 50 50w in the snapshot here. On the left with a belt clip since I put them on a half dozen of them 3 being the 50w iSticks you will note the iTaste VTR as the first besides the new MVP 3.0 Pro right in front. You have to turn the VTR up to the 15w max in order to get any sub ohm tank to even fire while most start easy at 20w. On the far right is the 150w Luxyoun while the 10w iStick is in there too!



The attached file is an out of contrast view of three of the four MVPs. I skipped the 30w but wanted to show people the difference in size with the new 60w standing taller and wider then the MVP 2.0 and 20w. You can see how I did some tank matching in the attached pic as far as the iSub with the 3.0 Pro, the 5ml Nautilus on the 20w MVP, and the Mini on the 6-11w max older 2.0 version which had been replaced by the SMOK Groove II 3-15w box mod that didn't fare so well wanting the 15w max which was seen with the older Vamo V2 I ended up giving away to someone who was in a financial pinch at the time.

What all this goes to show for the most part is just how fast a turnover of technology you are seeing with vaping gear in contrast to the pc market which had seen it's own market boom until the recession?! came about and desktop sales went down in favor of hand helds and tablets. Once a few brands like Kanger and Aspire put their own first sub tanks out the copy cats and others blossomed and are still coming. The original Kanger Sub Ohm however was discontinued while the Namo and Mini linger on.

I am actually thinking about selling my Kanger SubTank and Sigelei 100W Plus.

I liked it at first, but have noticed I haven't picked it up in a long time. Its just collecting dust.
I still prefer my Kayfun/Provari combo. I know many think I'm nuts and think the sub ohms are better, but no idea why I end back with this set up. I just like it better and not really sure why.


I do have a couple Kayfuns, so I can easily swap to a different flavor but I can't see how you guys can keep track of sop many mod/tank set ups LOL. I often misplace mine and have to spend a couple minutes looking for it. I think I need one of those key chain locator things on it.


--- My Nicoticket order came in yesterday though and I absolutely love The Virus! Wakonda is really good too.

Well having sampled dozens of flavors from not only one vendor I know the feeling about trying to keep track of which flavor is in what tank! Some are custom mixes I made up for taste testing a menthol with another to see if menthol and the other will work together. In one 120ml bottle I have several "remnants" of samples I would get in one time only when ordering hardwares.

A good number of people seem to like the KayFun tanks while I wasn't in any rush to abandon the Tumblers entirely either while those are run on the eGo-V VW type batteries. But I now only use so many compared to the number of those I collected before the sub ohms were even heard of. I didn't abandon the Nautilius tanks any keeping one on each of the 20w iSticks as well as the Vamos, MVP 2.0, and MVP 20w while the 15w max VTR sees the pair of Eleaf Melo sub ohm tanks put to use with that when I have some new flavor to try out on different set ups.

As for the sub ohm tanks being better that will depend on who makes it as well as what ejuice goes in. You won't always suddenly see a tremendous boost in vapor output or more robust flavor. A lot depends on the particular ejuice and how well that wicks up even with the better coils! Originally when CCV was first starting and I was doing the initial sampling with the old CE2 stuff the first several flavors put very little vapor out at the then best flavor ratio of 70PG/30VG since 50/50 was "wimpy" and 30/70, 20/80 was "what's this stuff?". Then came one flavor that made the old tanks go to work!

Now before assuming anything I went back to those same old flavors with each newer type tank and when the sub ohms arrived those early flavors do put out vapor! Maybe not as much cloud making capable but see more potential as the newer tanks have improvements seen in coil design to be more efficient. So it's not only watts and resistance but quality you look for when trying to find the happy place you want to be at regardless of the set up. The Tumblers. Nautilus. Melo while nowhere as good as the other sub ohms including the iSub Innokin's much needed improvement compared to the IClear series, and other older tanks like the Viva Nova still have application.

Before I forget and while we are on the subject about sub ohm tanks I recalled an article that fits this matter quite well as far as Is a Sub-Ohm Tank Right For You?

The first thing I heard out of one person who was a regular Nautilus user as well when first trying out the Atlantis was: "I'm not going back to the Nautlius. The Atlantis... " blah blah blah Atlantis praise! was heard. The findings here having one been a somewhat heavy 3 pack a day person was that the sub ohm tanks with the performances they offer would seem more suitable for the previously medium to heavy smokers as far as getting more satisfaction not only from more vapor output but also seeing a more intense flavor experience in respect to getting more flavor of those ejuices which lack otherwise.

No one can tell you what you will find to be that happy place I was just referring to in both hardwares and ejuice. You have to find out what works for "you"! plain and simple.

#over head!

Hi Wishmaster, good to hear from you. I just have 2 mods right now, the 2 in the picture I posted. I think it's important to have 2 in case 1 dies.
Tank wise it's just a bit of a hobby, usually I don't have any more than 3 or 4 as I sell the old ones to cover part of the cost of the new ones. I certainly only use 2 at a time, one on each mod.

I just got the new Freemax Starre Pro tank today which is top fill (really great feature) and comes with a 0.15 and 0.25ohm Ni200 coil. First impressions are it's an excellent tank, really good flavour and vapor. I have the new Aspire Triton tank being delivered tomorrow I think which is also top fill.

Hope you are well.

Paul.
