    It all depends on the build, wick, length of draw, etc... Usually two or three. It becomes second nature, about a one second light press is all it takes and your thumb is already there while you're holding it. One other note the spring that the battery sits on is made to collapse in the rare case of a short. That lets the battery drop down and out of the circuit.

    Neat idea,only have 1 mec mod and thats the 26650 hades.

    Tried with a few tanks(not tried any sub yet!!! so may give another go) But tanks i tried the IMR direct mec mod was too much and got a burning taste. Just not keen on having a mod thats nor regulated,guess i am just used to having exact V or W every vape............

    Nice, you definitely have quite a large collection of various devices. The coil building is really rather simple the part that is really trial and error is the wick material. Less is better! Too much and it can't feed properly. I use organic cotton, i boiled, strained, rinsed a bag of if and probably have enough for a life time all for $4.00. Build my micro coils on a drill bit with 28 gauge kanthal wire, I stay between 1-1.2 ohm coil they last forever.

    Ven; How is the Xtar charger working for you?

    I got the Nitecore i4, which only has LED bars, but I like it a lot! I can charge just about any battery I use either for vaping or flashlights and it is pretty fast for 18650's when compare to the Trustfire WF-139. I now only use the WF-139 for traveling purpose since I wouldn't mind much if anything would happen to it.

    Hi there,sorry for late reply as totally missed.

    I have an i4 and it served me fine,ok with 2 cells,4 just too slow for me,3400mah would seem to take all day...........literally. So the vp1 and vp2 are excellent chargers,like them both a lot and fee a more "quality" kind of feel regarding build/plastics/bay slides etc. Also the ability of 0.25/0/5 and 1a rates of which the latter i use the most. Certainly noticeable and i have never gone back to the i4 charger. If no need for 4.35 support(more flashlight use really as mods are mainly IMR/INR) then could save a few $ and get the vp1. Displays are nice,like the read outs and serve of use for checking the V of the cell . The reason i have 2 vp's is simply to charge 4x18650 at 1a .......

    Since your post i have got a vc4,now only 2x18650 in bay 1+4 at 1a,if use 3+4 these are 0.5a,or if all bays are filled with cells then 0.5a presumably due to heat.........

    Its a substantial unit,certainly a nice quality feel as per most Xtar chargers. Not over struck on the dial read out,but its big and bright and shows how much mah from top up V to termination. So for example,slap cell in at 3.6v,then at 4.2v it might show 1246mah(example on 2000mah IMR cell,changes dependent on cell mah which is a variable).

    So at around the same $(here in UK anyway) its a good option,the vp2 imo pips it for the extra 4.35v support and 0.25a charge rate department,but the 4 bays,NiMH support evens the odds out..........
    Comes with travel bag and thick USB cable,so requires either a USB plug(apple etc) or computer,ideal for travel !




    Size comp between the vp1 and vp2


    Again the mah count only starts from the start of charge,so for example if put cell in at 4.0v or 3.7v etc,it always counts form 0


    Still i like the bars and actual read out like 3.79v as apposed to looking at a dial and seeing it at 3.8v(if makes sense,only reads to the 0.1v instead of 0.01v),think its what i have had a while of knowing nothing but!!

    The charger has been used constant since got though mail,pretty much permanently(other than over night) and its a good charger

    Would not go that far maybe i just get nothing right the 1st time and takes me ages

    Kbox is a cheap,up to now reliable unit but not in same league as say a vaporshark rDNA40............ Its kind of (for me anyway) a beater type of mod,for work,nipping out,it it falls and breaks............no deal. In uk it cost £23 delivered with voucher,the rDNA was £150...........big difference if one gets dropped.

    Titanium nope,however there are ti mods,ones seen have been £500+ in UK so $750 ish forget that

    Not smoked since Jan 2013,this "vape" is what stopped me for sure,not the poor electric ones that glow and take cartridges etc.

    Kbox is certainly not a bad start,it is designed more for sub ohm use(for their specific tank). Works well though with any tank,no need for sub ohm tank use and may find a little harsh at 1st or some getting used to. However there are + to it,can lower nic levels to get same "hit" also better flavour from sub ohm............rest is as far as you want to go,it can certainly get addictive in its own way,mods,tanks,coils etc etc .

    For a nice vape,not too harsh and smooth, i like the delta 2 tank with any mod,other tank i use the most is the aspire atlantis with 5ml tank upgrade. However the v2 is out,soon the atlantis mega with more variable air control.

    My advice if any local would be go in a vape shop and try out some mods or tanks along with flavours. I went deliberately away from tobacco flavours so no reminders of cigs...........what ever works for you basically .

    If out of the mods right now i had to say my fav,then the vaporshark,however may be expensive on a mod if it is potentially not going to work for you,so Kbox would make better sense to start off with. Its basic,it works...........nice feel in hand,eats 18650 IMR/INR cells and has a floating pin(little pin inside that connects to tank is spring loaded,this makes sure it contacts the tank base). Then if happy and works,you will probably find you will end up getting more mods/tanks etc to rotate and as back up......hopefully no looking back

    Edit- Of course the fluid plays an important part,right nic content,if heavy smoker dont start low!!! Look at making your own,its really easy and can custom the vape to your wants/needs. If later down the road,just make sure you buy decent branded juice. Not sure your way what is great,sure some excellent ones available. I like the pre-made patriot range by TW,they now have an new odyssey range with VG base(smoother).

    May try it just for sake of,however i prefer now my own fluid...........by a long long way

    Thanks for your advice! I decided to go with the Kanger KBOX, because it matches my ring!

    I plan on fully stopping cigarettes with this, as I'm skipping all the "beginner" and "starter" rigs, and jumping head first into the box mod. I can't wait to THROW AWAY my ashtrays, and stop carrying a lighter.

    I totally copied your rig I quoted above and went with the "Sub Ohm" Kanger SubTank Plus! I plan to run it at 0.5Ω with 6mg nicotine at first, then ween the nicotine intake by increasing the resistance up to 1.2Ω - to absorb a bit less of that nasty drug.

    I spent about $100 and that includes enough juice to hopefully last a month, which ends up being less expensive than the money I'd have spent on cigarettes, so even just starting out I'm saving money. I'm insanely stoked on this, and wonder why it's taken me so long (because I've only tried the "BLUE" disposables and hated them) to convert.

    I'll be researching DIY'ing my own juice next. This is an exciting journey, and my new rig LOOKS hellacool! Thanks again, for all your help!

    Default Re: Vape Lounge

    Or maybe I'll start with 1.2Ω + 6mg, then switch to the SUB-OHM 0.5Ω when I can find some 3mg juice.

    My local shop is PREPOSTEROUS, charging MORE than 3x the costs online (seriously!). Their prices are utterly ridiculous, so I quickly came home and ordered online.

    ven pretty much covered the basics. Decent starter kits can get you off cigs (not the disposable stuff). E-cigs are like flashlights in many ways: most people starts with <30$ stuff, upgrade to ~40$ basic kit, then buy a 50#+ mod, then up and up from there. I have seen some e-cigarette collections that make flashlight collecting normal. Use the knowledge you have gained from lights and read reviews, research and compare. There are TONS of reviews on youtube, Pbusardo being the Selfbuilt of e-cig reviewers, with graphs and all (oh, you can't imagine how long I have waited for an occasion to say that )

    No just a light ano /paint type,certainly not rated like type III . Most mods are simply coated ,even more expensive ones can chip very easy. Saying that I have had type III flashlights chip too easy(of course it's most likely not anyway).

    For a tough mod,again ones like the provari are hard to beat imo .

    Kbox is a cheap end mod,but does job fine. See how you get on and find right tank /juice etc, then no doubt it will grow into a hobby/interest as well . Just make sure to use IMR or INR 18650 cells,(exluding provari) most only take flat top . LG ,Samsung,Efest and Sony as just some examples do good cells for higher A use. I used to use ICR ,but was not sub ohm vaping at time . Now I wil only use IMR/INR chemistry regardless of A use(usually well under A rating anyway).

    Been enjoying the KBOX so much I got another one as my backup. I don't think I'll get one with a screen, now that these variable wattage mods are all the rage. I modified the holster from my V10R Ti+ to work with the KBOX, so it's at the ready while driving, and I don't risk dropping it onto concrete while walking around with it. I realize there are smaller, more portable rigs out there, but I'm working with what I've got. I also like how it sort of protects it from getting all scratched up during use as well.



    It actually slides right into the sheath much easier than it looks like it does in the video, or maybe it has broken-in a little bit, but it's great and I'll carry it this way everywhere.

    The other KBOX + SubTank Plus fits perfectly in the side pocket of my FatBoy man-purse (EDC bag) too, so it's the perfect form-factor for my needs.

    I ordered a spool of Kanthal wire, cotton, 1L of 100mg nic, 1L of PG, 1L of VG, and a couple different flavors to enhance the taste. I'll buy the PG/VG in gallon jugs next time, and the nic mix should last me just about forever. Pre-made juice is outrageously expensive compared to DIY, so it's the logical next step.

    I'll mix my juice with a digital scale, knowing that 1mL of H2O equals 1 gram, and I can just mark my container, then weigh the other liquids at that volume to figure out how many grams each mL weighs, although I have already found charts telling me their specific gravity, or whatever it's called.

    I've completely quit smoking cigarettes like it was nothing. I enjoy this SO much more, and it's insanely cheaper. I'm so happy to never step foot into the tobacco shop I used to pay daily. My house has no ashtrays or smokey odor anymore, and seems so much cleaner, as well as my face and lungs. I don't smell like smoke, and neither do my clothes.

    I'm so happy I boarded this boat after the technology has progressed to variable wattage devices, and SubTanks that don't leak and are easy to re-coil, so I didn't need to keep upgrading and upgrading, chasing the dragon.

    Thanks again, Ven (and Cataract), for showing me the light (on a flashlight forum, no less)!

    Great idea for edc,nice work there. Glad happy and it's worked for you,awesome that you have given up the smokes fully. I find although I do save money ,it's hard to resist new mods and tanks........I am doing well as not bought any stuff for weeks now. Trying to get some use out of what I have and struggle as it is Definitely worth having back ups as even the thought of breaking or loosing one........

    When time comes ,check the aspire Atlantis out,new Atlantis mega should not be too far off and great for having another flavour in. It's a good tank for pre-made coils and for ease.

    Mix wise,well I have tried various % of AG/PG and settled for a 50/50 AG /PG mix. Too much VG makes it thick and hard to wick,(the AG is diluted VG so wicks easier.) Nice smooth vape without clouding everywhere out,nice flavour still . So I just get 2 bottles,1/2 and 1/2 them,good shake and again before making juice. This way the mix is pre-made ready and just add nic & flavour. Lowers my nic down from 18mg or 1.8 to 10mg now. Next month will lower again.

    Whoo Hooo! Just made my first batch of eJuice! I used a digital scale + math with each liquid's specific gravity to convert mL to grams (with the help of this youtube video).



    In the video, he does most of the work for you, averaging over 10mL, but even without a beaker you could do it yourself by weighing a gram of water, marking the container to that level, then measuring how much each liquid weighs at that volume. I guess measuring 10mL, then dividing by 10 for the average is more precise, but whatever!

    That was easier than I thought and instead of over $20 for a 30mL bottle, this DIY 30mL bottle cost me about 85¢! I had a lot of fun doing it too!

    The 100mg/mL nicotine juice in 50/50 PG/VG was the hardest to figure out its specific gravity. I got 1000mL of the stuff, and it's 10% pure nicotine, so 450mL is PG, 450mL is VG, and 100mL is pure nic. I multiplied each by their specific gravities, totaled them, then divided by 1000 to get the SG of this, which came out to be 1mL = 1.1315g.

    Specific Gravity of VG: 1mL = 1.259g
    Specific Gravity of PG: 1mL = 1.031g

    So, for 30mL yield of 6mg/mL nicotine (or 6%), I came up with 1.8mL of the Nicone-blend, 14.1mL PG, and 14.1mL VG (50/50 PG/VG).

    I just zero'd out my scale, added 14.54g of PG, then zero'd it out again and added 17.75g of VG, zero'd it again and added 2.04g of the Nicotine-blend, then dripped in drops of vanilla for a little bit of flavor. Math is fun, when it saves this much money! Unbelievable!

    greenlight - please do share more. what type of mod was he carrying and do you know how the accident occurred? I hope he has healed up 100%.

    I've been reading through this thread and enjoying the options presented. I imagine that one of these days I will get into making my own e-juice but I'm just not up to the task yet. Still spending a lot of money on the juices and they tend to go pretty quickly.

    Like my journey through flashlighting, but with a few lessons learned along the way, I've progressed through my vaping journey. Went from an iStick 30W to a Provari 3 (great solid device). I found that I prefer box mods though and sold it. I also bought a Hana Modz v4 mini - love this device as it is super solid and nice and small. The LiPo last for quite a long time for me but I only vape in the 13-14W range.

    Of course, as a true flashaholic, I desired new and cooler mods so I picked up a VaporShark rDNA 40w to compare with the Hana. The rDNA40 is a solid and heavy mod. It weighs as much by itself as the Hana does with a Russian 91% attached. So I am selling the rDNA after using it for a little over a month. I wanted to have two mods though to switch between so I decided to pickup a VaporShark DNA30 - this is the older 30 watt device I saw someone posting about a page or two back. Uses a LiPo 1300mAh battery and it has got to be the tiniest high quality mod I've seen to date. I love the tiny size and the power is more than I'll ever need.

    The awesome thing about the VS DNA30 is that VaporShark is trying to get rid of them and has them priced at $70 on their website. That has got to be the steal of the century. If the LiPo battery ever starts to go I can get a replacement from HobbyKing for about $5 - all it takes is a solder gun to remove the old battery and solder the power leads onto the new battery. Easy-peasy.

    I haven't seen much discussion of LiPo versus LiIon cells in the vape threads but it's worth a paragraph. From my experience with RC cars/helicopters for the past 20 years I can say 100% that LiPo has the best discharge curves available. The voltage sag at load when you compare LiPo and LiIon is an easy win to the LiPo. Finding a LiPo cell than can handle 40, 50 or even 60C constant is not hard at all. LiIon cells that can do 35A still struggle with a huge voltage sag at those loads. So when you compare a LiPo cell at 1300 mAh with a LiIon of the same rating you would find the LiPo will generally last longer. I can't put a hard number on it but I would say a 1300mAh Lipo could last as long as a good 1700-1800mAh LiIon cell. Now if they could only make it so LiPo cell could be easily swapped...... but, no big deal either way as either the Hana Modz V4 mini or the VS DNA30 will both last me the day with a few quick charge touch-ups at my desk at work.

    Onto tanks - I have settled on the Russian 91% as my RBA of choice at the moment. Picked up 6 total so that I have most of my e-juice favs in easy rotation. I tried my hand a building micro coils and it really isn't that hard - but man is it time consuming, and I've got much better things to be doing with work and two kids at home. I've seen that there are a lots of pre-built micro coils available now but they are all bent for RDAs sideways loading and it's tricky to get them bent right to fit on the Russian 91. I thank the eGrip for the solution I came up with. I tried out the eGrip for a while - it's a novel device and only works well when you use the RBA adapter - but then it leaks a lot. But, the pre-made coils that come with the RBA option are bent perfectly for most RBA tanks. They fit the RBA base on the Russian 91 perfectly, come already pre-wicked with cotton, measure out right at 1.4 Ohms, are easy to dry-fire to clean off and then re-wick again. I bought 50 of them online shipped for about $25 so my Russians are going to be happy for a long time to come.

    Looking forward I am sure we all have some new mods, tanks, drip tips, juices that are on our future to be tried and tested list. Currently I have a few fun things I am looking forward to coming in Vape Mail. The first one is a nano conversion kit for the Russian 91% - this should shrink the Russian down about 5-7mm. I also have some Lemo Drop RBAs coming - they have gotten good write ups and I am they are pretty small. I'm basically looking for something small to go with the VS DNA30 for a nice stealth vaping device. I was considering a micro RDA but I think I vape too much liquid to be constantly dripping into a RDA. Even a 2ml tank will get me by for long enough between refills.

    I just took some pictures so I'll be pasting up some vape porn shortly.

    Vape mail arrived today. The Russian nano kit is pretty cool. The Lemo Drop, not so cool. For a smaller version of a tank this thing is HUGE - it's as big, if not bigger, than the Russian 91. And, just like most of the RTA/RBAs coming out it is obviously oriented towards lung hitters - UGH! Not that I have anything against lung hits but I prefer a nice slow drag mouth hit with lots of flavor and that's what the Russian gives me. I guess making clouds nowadays has become more important than good flavor - it's fun........ once in a while, but not an all day every day thing.

    Some stealthy pics:

    And, my new favorite stealth vape. Russian 91 nano kit on VS DNA30.

    Awesome pics ,thanks for sharing Have some real nice set ups there . I too find the rDNA40 on the large side compared to my now sold rDNA30 . I also don't use high W ,most my uses are 20w tops and odd 25w. Fantastic deal on the 30, I quite like the new DNA40 which has an LG 2500mah built in and keeps a size of the rDNA30(smaller than the 40) .

    I just prefer to swap out my cells as I can go through an 18650 in 2hrs easy!! Now like the i50 ,this has a 4400mah battery ,that would provide enough vape time without me being too concerned of vaping whilst charging(I have and will continue to forget that I am plugged into laptop ........mod meets floor

    Once you make your own juice ,there will be no looking back other than" damn I should have done this earlier" .....just like I will be once I start making my own coils Nice mix of 50/50 or more % of VG/AG for a smoooooooth vape.

    SOYCD, great pics of a nice "little" collection you have there. Those russians look cool; I like the matte finishes.

    What started out trying to be a money-saving endeavor, has been draining my wallet a lot more than I first expected. I just ordered three more mods, with three more tanks, a bunch of bottles and blunt syringes, and a whole slew of IMR chemistry cells in various sizes, more Kanthal in a smaller gauge, and Koh Gen Do cotton . . . Oh yeah, and a new charger (that I didn't really need, but somehow talked myself into anyway because it looks cool).

    So far, it's cost 3x as much as I was spending on cigarettes (per month), but hopefully I'll chill-out soon and this stuff will begin "paying for itself". That was the plan anyway. If my calculations are correct, I'm sitting on 4.5 years worth of nicotine, so that's good.

    Mr eneloops.....we have so much in common I too did not know when to stop and went mad. Now ,similar to flashlights ,batteries and chargers ,have held back to get use of equipment . Still tempted and still buy ,but now a little more held back. Yeh easier said than done but I do try . Some nice mods/tanks seem to be out almost weekly. As ecigs etc are in such a competative market right now,what's good this week is almost old hat next. Tanks seem to be good for a month or two before an new updated tank is released in its place. I have a couple of edc mods that I rotate daily,as these work well for me I am trying to stay away from looking at newer mods. Some really nice custom ones available .........never ending!

    New tec,not long back sub ohm for example was for rebuildables only,now it's over the counter stuff . Who knows in a few months time,what will be available . I would if possible ,try and get as much use as you can out of your mods etc. It can bite like flashlights ....or worse. Vapaholics....

    I know what you mean! I'm promising myself that I'm done now. I have to continue to not smoke for the next 4.5 months to break even at this point, and that's even with finding some killer good deals on some mods. I'll post a picture of my modest collection when my order from China gets here - I'm guessing that might take a month or so.

    +1 on more details. Was he using the wrong chemistry, like unprotected ICR's per chance? Did the button get stuck in the on position in his pocket, was there a short circuit?

    A new stealthy vape. The new Mini iStick 20w with Russian 91% Nano conversion kit. This thing is super tiny but still packs a punch.

    I like the look of that Sean! Could please you email me a link to where you purchased the setup?

    If it is a one stop that is...

    Couple of new items on way,the odyssey 18650M which is a mec mod...........in a nice stainless like the others in the range. Should be bullet proof and has fantastic reviews from what i have read. With 24% discount -£40.

    As i am liking the aspire atlantis subohm tank,i have bought the atlantis mega,5ml,has 0.3 and 0.5ohm coils now,the former requires 70w........... Not for me ,so will be sticking with 0.5ohm and a HUGE wide drip tip. Mega really is a lot larger than the normal atlantis drip tip by almost twice the size.........

    Hopefully here in next couple of days to try out

    Some more cells,these i will use on my tn36vn,if prove good(testing shows almost 100% capacity at 2966mah) I will get some more for my ecigs as 15/30a 3000mah is ideal for my uses.
