Got a Gaia today. Need a dual 18650 squonker – Dripbox 160? Something ‘better’?

I like the Therion dual 18650 squonker but it's a LOT more expensive and I'm not sure if there's a compelling reason to get it or something else, versus just grabbing a Dripbox 160 for less than 1/3 of the price. That is assuming there's no problem putting a Gaia in squonk mode on the 160…?

Edit: I don't need the dual battery for power, I'm perfectly content to build high and turn it down. So a 70w would be fine. I want the dual battery for battery life. I could skip carrying spares in a lot of cases.

Doing my own research on and off this evening but I'd definitely enjoy your opinions!

Nuclear Vapes – quick review that you probably don’t care about

I'm getting pretty sick of my normal ADVs, so I've gone out with another round of small samples from a few companies I've missed out on trying. Nuclear vapes being one of those. I'm a cheap bastard and saw they are liquidating their 15ml sizes, so I went ahead and picked up 3 flavors that speak to me. They didn't have my nic level left (3mg), and being the cheap bastard I am, I decided to just go with what was available to try the flavors, instead of paying the regular price for my nic level.

I ended up with 3 <a href="<a href="”>eliquid_c_7.html”>juices, 2 in 0mg, and 1 in 1.5mg. Figured I could decide if I liked them and then reorder in my nic if so. I payed like $7 for 3x 15mls!

I'm not going to break this up into my full outlined review like I have in the past, because I'm lazy, and frankly not many people actually care about these reviews.

Down to business:

All <a href="<a href="”>eliquid_c_7.html”>juices tested on a csmnt clone rda, using dual 316L staggered fused claptons, TC'd on a Therion DNA 166 @ 480F


Website description: Delicious Vanilla Ice Cream & Graham Cracker

My thoughts: I don't taste the graham at all, honestly all I can taste is the same funky flavor I get from every other vanilla/ice cream type vape I've ever tried. I guess I just can't do vanilla, I can't even describe what I'm getting here. It's a smooth vape, just an offputting oddness to the flavor that has become very common for me when trying vanilla based vapes. This bottle was the only bottle I received that was mixed fresh, so that may play into it as well, bottle is only 5 days old. The other two are 5 months old.


Website: If you love the vanilla ice cream and graham crackers taste of Boomer, then just imagine slicing some fresh sweet strawberries onto the top.

My thoughts: Tried this after boomer for obvious reasons. I did not have high hopes after trying boomer, since this is basically boomer + an additional flavoring. I couldn't have been more wrong. This <a href="<a href="”>eliquid_c_7.html”>juice is LOVELY. I do well with strawberry, so I've tried a ton. I can honestly say I've never tasted a strawberry flavor that is this close to the actual fruit (I usually prefer candied myself). The strawberry must cancel out whatever my issue is with the vanilla in boomer because this is damn good. This tastes exactly like a bowl of vanilla ice cream, with fresh slices of strawberries on top. In a sea of strawberry <a href="<a href="”>eliquid_c_7.html”>juices, this stands out, wow it's good. How I feel this differently about this and the regular boomer, I don't know. I have a feeling steeping is playing a part, this <a href="<a href="”>eliquid_c_7.html”>juice is 5 months old, while the boomer was fresh.


Website: If you’ve been disappointed with iced tea vapes in the past, then you’ll agree that this old fashioned sweet tea vape is Pure F*ing Magic!

My thoughts: Never had a tea vape before so I have nothing to compare it to. This gives me big time sugar lips. I am a sweet vape kind of guy, I find myself adding sweetener to a lot of <a href="<a href="”>eliquid_c_7.html”>juices that I buy, it's just what I like, coils be damned. This <a href="<a href="”>eliquid_c_7.html”>juice is one I won't need to add any sweetener to at all. For me it's pretty perfect, but it's more of a sugar vape with tea notes. While that is 100% up my ally, I have a feeling the majority may find this a tad too sweet, especially if your some kind of tea snob, this is basically McDonalds sweet tea.

Final thoughts:First I have to say that I loved the handwritten note on my invoice. It's a small thing but the companies that take the time to write a personal message mean something to me. To me, it screams passion for what their doing.

Those of you that know me, know that I am EXTREMELY picky when it comes to <a href="<a href="”>eliquid_c_7.html”>juice. I'm at somewhere around 150 <a href="<a href="”>eliquid_c_7.html”>juices that I've tried at this point, and up until today I had found a grand total of 4 ADVs. Today I just found 2 more after trying 3 <a href="<a href="”>eliquid_c_7.html”>juices. Finding a <a href="<a href="”>eliquid_c_7.html”>juice I actually like is almost like winning the lottery at this point for me, it rarely comes, and it's a big deal when it does.

I'll be absolutely reordering PFM and Seawolf, I'm starting to burn out on my current ADVs pretty bad and went hunting for something to give me a break, man did I find it!

[Crescent City Clouds]It’s My Birthday

Happy Birthday To Me

A bill was submitted to the House of Ways and Means Committee that would increase the tax on e-liquid from 5 cents per mL to 13 cents per mL. Greg Conley reached out to inform me about the bill on Friday. We started our strategy planning Friday morning, and did not stop until today.

Friday, I spent the better part of 8 hours calling 21 members of the Ways and Means Committee, urging them to oppose HB 271 on the behalf of the vapor businesses in Louisiana. I was able to get on the phone with Representative Hoffman, the author of the bill, and explain to him the detrimental effect his bill would incur.

I am pleased to announce were successful in deferring the bill, from a tax to a study on how to tax, and LAVA is dedicated to help the study understand the products and impacts of what they are taxing.

In just three days we had almost 800 emails sent to the ways and means committee, Representative Hoffman received over 150 calls from constituents, and three radio spots playing in three different districts opposing the bill. I have never been more proud of the vapor industry.

I advocate because it is my responsibility to my business and my customers to fight for its life. I don’t get paid to advocate. The future of the vapor industry is in OUR hands. Now is the time to reach out to the state and national organizations. Now is the time to put your differences and egos aside for the greater good. If you cannot pay dues, offer time. If you cannot offer time, pay dues. If you can do both, that’s even better.

The worst part is I shouldn’t even have to rant about this.

If we remain divided there is no doubt we will fall, but standing together we are a force to be reckoned with. Today is a perfect example of that.

This is one of the most passionate communities in the world. That passion needs to be focused. The only question left to ask yourself, is whether you will be part of the rise or part of the fall?

I wanted to take the time to thank all parties involved, if I forgot you I am sorry.

All members of the Louisiana Vaping Association

All non-members of the Louisiana Vaping association that reached out to offer support

Vape on and Prosper!

What’s the stupidest thing another vaper has ever told you?

My coworker the other day told me that rebuildable coils blow up.

Not the batteries mind you, I told him I build my own coils and he said "those things blow up, why would you do that" while puffing away on his alien and baby beast.

Just got me wondering how much stupidity/misinformation there is in our community.

Edit: I also realized all of my recent posts here have been shitposts or reviews. I'm good at ECR

Edit 2: for those of you who saw my comment about the koolaid post, I forgot I screenshot it. I think it was deleted so this is the best I got.
