Windows 7: Any Vapers?

Just make sure you are getting authentic products.
Lots of sites out there look cheaper, and they are with legit products.

But there are also lots that look cheaper because your getting a knockoff that doesn't work as intended. In some cases, this may make you think unfairly that highly rated product is just garbage.


My Kayfun for example, i found at a couple sites for half the price. But after further inspection, none of them had the laser ingraved marking on the bottom. Even though they were listed as Authentic kayfuns, they were obvious knock offs. In fact, I found it more difficult to locate the real deal than dozens of knocks offs out there.

I'm sure everyone knows about this, just a reminder.
Although some knock offs can be rather good.




BTW, on price of Ejuice.
My ejuice DIy calculator has a section where I plug in how much of every ingredient and the price I paid for them. After I make a recipie it gives me the approximate price for that recipie.

My vanilla and Strawberry Custards I made 120ml each of. It says those cost me about $7.35 per bottle to make. For a 120ML bottle!! I was surprised how cheap that was.
I mean thats $1.83 per 30ml or 61 cents per 10ml.

I just need to come up with more really good recipes. Those custards are great but sadly take a good 30days before ready to vape,
But a few liike Strawberry Kiwi are ready in just a couple days.

At any count, it really got me thinking how much profit margin there is in this.
Theres more than just Nic,PG,Vg and flavor concentrates though. They may add other additives. Acetyle Pyrazine for example. great for bakery and Tobacco blends. it adds a slight bready or nutty flavor, dep3ending how much you use. But its very strong, so is used very sparing. Sounds like some kind of toxic chemical, but its just a really strong mixed nut type flavor.
Just 1 drop or 2 per 10ml does the trick.
It really adds that something that seemed missing.

Using just a little bit more adds a more of a nutty flavor. I liked my Peanut Butter/Chocolate mix, but this stuff really made it better, without really tasting it... if that makes sense. In other words, unless you know its there you'd think it was just PB and chocolate.

Still, I figure even with a couple additives beyond the basics, around $8 or so per 120ml is the cost for just about anyone. So yea, huge mark ups and lots of profit gain from ejuices.

Huge markup,
Vista vapors and I believe vape wild wasn't so bad
I'll have to check again on that
This sugarland store has humpday specials
Buy one 50 mil and get one free
First 50 mil is 29.99 I think :/
But 15.00 for 50mil isn't bad none of the select mixtures but all house stuff no limit on nic amount
I'll have to go in next Wednesday and see what's up

$43 for an Aspire Nautilus? Glad I shop online! I haven't even been to one of the half dozen or so vape shops locally since a local shop will always be marked higher due to overhead! unless I need something on the spot which hasn't been the case so far since I generally order extra when I can.

As for Knock offs I tend to screen vendors by taking close looks these days before rushing to order anything and why I have been able to compile a list of good vendors here from having dealt with them. It takes a bit of time since I also had the occasion as well as information on some bad ones as well.

As for Vista Vapors I checked out their prices and found them to be a bit higher then many but took the $1.99 for shipping freebie offer to give one of their menthol flavors a go! That allowed a comparison to my regular vendor who does a better job on not seeing the menthol flavors too strong and overbearing while still being flavorful. I had to put the VV flavor on the non variable 18650 aluminum tube mod I got back in April '13 or so in order to cool that one down a bit!

Yea well you have to remember that 1 there is no waiting or shipping costs,
Finally I doubt very seriously I'll be vaping in 2016
I predict sometime in 2015 I'll be done with all of this vaping stuff
To me is just shifting habits if you never stop after 2-3-4-5 years of vaping

Owe yea Five weeks tomorrow

I expect to vaping for some time to come yet since it was never about simply quitting one habit to switch to another but offers a non smoke alternative to the handling of allergies here without being dependent on any prescription meds which were found to be ineffective many moons ago!

As far as how many have vaped past 3-5yrs. time I doubt you will find that many since the first ecigs didn't even get into the country until 2006 and only in the last 3-4yrs. have seen an increase in usage. At first they were only found in specialty tobacco shops until word finally got out and people started trying them as quit smoking devices rather then wearing a patch, chew nicotine loaded gum, inhale from a nicotine inhaler which by the way is why "Big Pharma" being the pharmaceutical industry tries so far to invalidate vaping as a far better alternate then the products they want you to believe you have to have and why so called experts overstated the risks of second hand smoke in order to leave the doors wide open for the Big Pharma to cash in on billions of $$$ once all these quit smoking products went on the market. Vaping being the far less costly habit once you have the initial expenses of deciding on which hardwares to go with situated only seeing pennies a day for eliquids compared to how much for Nicoderm or something else?

Once you have been away from smoking for so many years vaping will more or less simply be an easy to quit habit once you lose interest in it. But don't ever think it isn't possible to once again pick an old habit! People can lapse backwards for any number of reasons. I know that from cigar smoking for a period of time and then 5yrs. trying menthol cigs for a 3yr. stretch before quitting cold turkey for about 8 months only to once again pick it up.

Why? There were no ecigs in order to vape menthol anything back in the 1980s! At the same time however I was able to quit cold turkey as easy as it was to start back up again! And despite the investments made I find I am far from being a chain vaper and why it takes longer to go through the non menthol flavors.

In regards to the 2mil tank
It seems good enough for 1 days worth of puffing for me anyway :/
I expect that to go down over time but it does seem a reasonable size,
Cheers.
Actually only 1.5 mils used I suppose the last 0.5 is always left over

I started here first with 20drop catridges on a cigarette size battery(180mah Bloog) following the first item being a disposable. Later I went for the rebranded eGo 650 batteries that brand came out with along with the 1.6ml top coiled long wicked clearomizers and suffered all of the dry wicking issues for months until going for several new BCC tanks by Smoktech and Vision.

The 2.5ml Tumblers you can actually fill up with over 3ml came out of that along with the Vision Victory which sees the base left on the battery when going to take it off to refill and Smok Trophy which did about the same as the other as far as lacking in vapor output! The Tumblers as I learned are familiar to many! The 2ml size I keep at a minimum however since due to the increased in vapor with the lower 1.2-1.5ohm coils in the Smok Aro and T-Dux 2.0 bottom coil clearomizers you go through them too fast while a Tumbler can easily last a full week depending on how often you vape and which flavor you put in.

Here I can go right through 3ml if sitting there vaping while watching a few movies on the dvr or set aside a tank full of a flavor after the initital tasting for a week without notice. I am now busy playing catch up to a certain extent not only on the tanks but flavors that won't be reordered just to finish those off for a refined selection. I just heard one vendor now has the next new flavor out of an Apple pie with Cinnamon, Graham cracker blend which should be interesting!

Generally the primary will stay the most consistent however since that now has long replaced menthol tobacco! As for the $2 freebie from Vista Vapors over the last week that new menthol of theirs takes the cake over the Wintergreen menthol CCV has had out now for a year. At first using the old long wicked stuff late last October I misjudge that as having an overbearing Wintergreen flavor until into better tanks! Now I get VV's newest menthol and that will put you into orbit!
