General Vaping Discussion • Re: Nicotine not addictive? Yeah right!

Had a friend post to me in Facebook about how china has a study and it says that ecigs are more dangerous than traditional smoking…Told him its a fight for the profits as my medical shows great improvements from using ecigs and stopping the traditional smoking…the fight goes on.

General Vaping Discussion • Re: Life after MVP2 and KFL

If you don’t mind having to keep it vertical at all times, I just received the Orchid V4 clone.

It is dual coil and it functions like an RBA but it vapes like a dripper especially at higher wattages (25 watt plus).

Studies have shown that none of the nicotine replacement therapies – chewing gum, inhalers, patches – none of those are addictive. Nicotine is not addictive. The cause of addiction is the release of monoamine oxidase inhibitors, or MAOIs, along with nicotine.

Anyone ever…?

So tonight I was going through my vape drawer, organizing and what not, and I pulled out my old T3S tank and 650mah KangerTech battery. Just for old times sake I cleaned the old T3S and filled it with my favorite juice. Took a few puffs and it brought me back to when I first started vaping. I really enjoyed it. While this in no way lives up to my current vape expectations, it was fun just to tinker with my old things. Just wondering what everyone has sitting in drawers. I figured most probably pass their starter kits on to beginners, but when I started I ended up with lots of batteries and single coil T3S tanks. While I have passed down quite a bit, I usually keep one of everything, even if I think I’ll never use it again. It was neat to see how my vaping needs have shifted and how my simple little starter kit got me off cigarettes. And it makes me wonder if I never would have upgraded if this would still work for me to this day. Just curious who else digs out their old equipment for a test drive every now and then.

Glas clone mini review

Well, before I scored my Glas signature, a friend, had found some Glas clones, supposedly 1:1. I thought, "$27, why not? Worth a shot". Well at my own mistake I ended up having to wait longer to get it as it shipped to my previous address because I hadn’t changed my info on PayPal.

Anyways, I ended up with an authentic first. Which I absolutely love. Today the clone came in, opened it up, black box, Glas on the top just like my real one, opened it up, there it is 18500 mod, only the mod and a spare keeper ring for the switch. No pouch, no certificate, none of the extras, which I see as a good thing, at least they aren’t trying to pass it off completely. There was also a little white box that came with it, opened it up, the body tube for the 18650 battery. Cool.

Put the end caps on the 650 tube, tossed in a Sony vtc4, put my Nauti on it, closest atty at the moment, twisted the lock ring….. wait a second, not smooth, not rough, but not smooth, ok, $27, fair enough, same twist as the real deal, same look. Not too bad.

Pressed the button, has a bit longer throw, but not bad. Hit my Nauti, hits pretty hard, not as hard as the original, but for a clone….hard. nice.

Ok, let’s compare, so I take the clone and Sig, and try out and see the differences. See for yourself.

Ok close, not perfect, but closer than I thought, figured I’d open it up and find your typical switch and top cap, nope, they actually tried to copy the Glas, switch is magnetic with ball bearing twist. Has a piece of glass on the bottom of the switch (I assume is glass, plexi, something).

Let check the threads, they feel ok, not bad at all… hey. The threads match! Interesting.

So….. is it 1:1? Eh, close but not exact. Is it worth the price? I’d have been happy with it if I’d have paid twice the price. I’ll definitely hold on to it, use it for work and play so I can keep my Sig safe at home as my home vape. I know a lot of you don’t like the clones. But they are here, people are buying them, nothing we can do about it, not really, and I’d rather have a $27 clone that performs decently with me at work drop on the floor than my $350 Sig. Ya know?

Yeah it’s a decent mod, much like the Yosen zero clone. Better than most, not an original, but for the budget minded or el-cheapo folks, it’s a steal.

Chargers…. are they worth the extra money?

So… I have been vaping for over a year and, yes, I have heard it all as far as battery saftey goes and also about charger saftey. I have been charging 18xxx batteries on the same no name charger with no issues. About a week ago I woke up to the strong smell of burning electronics ( if you have smelled this you know), well my charger had melted slightly on the top half and my battery suffered some deformation. Luckily on my part it was in a fairly safe place and I was charging a Sony VTC4 so nothing detrimental. I have a NITECORE charger enroute but this could have been a disaster. Just want to reiterate that a good charger, along with good bats is a must.

PLAY IT SAFE EVERYONE and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
