So, who here's tagging along with this latest drugs craze?
I know there was at least one of you with good knowledge on this subject in a smoking thread we had on /b/ a while ago, but I thought we could do with a general dedicated thread now it seems more and more of us are getting them.
I've personally just invested about £50 for two Kanger e-Smart batteries with clearomisers, liquid and addendums and I'm quite enjoying this whole vaping business. It seems to be even more moreish than cigarettes, and I'm looking forward to going through some of the tastier flavours. What setups have you got? Any comment on my kit (510 battery, T3 clearomisers) if you're familiar with it? I seem to already be getting that sucking/gargling noise which is apparently to do with the liquid being in parts of the apparatus it shouldn't be, but have followed YouTube guides to try and clear it out to no avail.
Anyway, yes. Vaporising general.

Just to clarify, are you talking about tobacco substitute vaping, or 'vaporising' in a more general sense?

Last time I tried an e-cig or vaporiser or whatever they're called they turned out to be just as expensive as cigarettes. That and I could only buy them in a pharmacy which is a bit of a walk further than the several shops that sell cigarettes. I know it's silly to talk about convenience when this is my health at stake but besides the price and convenience I never felt like they gave me a good alternative to a regular cigarette. There was also the fact I could never really tell if I used it too much or too little.
Have these sort of things changed? Can I purchase them in any old chain newsagent? Are they cheaper? Have they introduced any sort of counter on them to say when you've had the equivalent of one cigarette?

There's loads of addictive chemicals in cigarettes and just going with the nicotine doesn't suffice, for me.
|>>|| No. 20160
Sure, both. I gather they both use the same sort of kit? A battery, an atomiser/clearomiser capsule and a sort of oil-like liquid into which your drug of choice is dissolved. Or am I completely wrong? I'd like to learn either way if the kit involved in nicotine vaping and...other vaping is different.

Probably I'm being very nerdy and enjoying my new little toy too much; I was reading up about building your own clearomisers and cleaning them and shit which is all very techy.

That's either very expensive liquid, or you're talking about a different kind of product. It should be significantly cheaper.
>There was also the fact I could never really tell if I used it too much or too little.
This is something you do get used to. I overdid it (whilst also drinking alcohol) the first time I used one and at the end of the night I ended up nauseated and jittery. I had to sit up with the light on and wait for it to pass for about half an hour, all I wanted to do was go to sleep.

The disposable e-cigs you find in newsagents and the like are both expensive and shite. You want to go to a specialist e-cig retailer or online and buy a refillable kit.
First, I'll rattle through the most important jargon. An e-cigarette has three main parts; The battery, the atomiser head and the e-liquid tank. The system works by allowing e-liquid to flow onto the atomiser through a wick, where it is vapourised by high heat. The atomiser itself is simply a coil of high-resistance wire, heated by current from the battery.
The de-facto standard for e-cigarette batteries is the eGo-type, the sort pictured above. These are about the size of your finger, last for about 6 hours of heavy use (or more than a day of moderate vaping) and can be recharged hundreds of times before they need replacing.
Because the connection to the battery is standardised, there is a huge diversity of atomiser and liquid tank systems to choose from. Most people today opt for a clearomiser system, where the e-liquid is held in a clear plastic tank and the atomiser head is immersed in the liquid. A typical clearomizer like a CE4 or a Kanger Evod will hold about 1.5ml of e-liquid, which is roughly equivalent to 10 cigarettes. A larger clearomizer like a Vivi Nova will hold 3-5ml of e-liquid. Some cheaper clearomizers like the CE4 are disposable, but most quality units have a replaceable coil head.
I'll break down the costs of the setup I use day-to-day:
A Kanger Evod kit costs about £30 on eBay. This includes two eGo-type batteries, two clearomizers, five spare atty heads and a charger. This is a really good quality setup that provides lovely thick clouds of vapour and is very durable. If you just want to try out a refillable system, you can buy a Hangsen Echo starter kit for less than £10. You can buy very cheap unbranded kits, but just don't, they're dreadful.
I get about two weeks out of an atomizer head and they cost me £1 each. You can eke more life out of an atty head by dismantling them and cleaning them, if you can be arsed.
I buy my e-liquid from an importer called premiere-cigs.co.uk, who buy direct from the factory in China. I pay £5.50 for 30ml of e-liquid and vape about 2ml a day. Most people vape 2-3ml of liquid a day, while a very heavy chain-vaper might get through 5 or 6ml. A 30ml bottle from a high-street shop will cost £10-£12 and a hand-made gourmet liquid might cost up to £18 for 30ml.
Doing the sums, the equivalent of a 15-a-day habit costs me less than 60p.

I love you and I love your posts.
When refilling your clearomisers do you both using a fine-tipped pipette or anything like that, or have you got such sick pouring skills at this stage that you just do it straight from the bottle? I am wary of having to replace the T3 clearomisers all the time and hearing from you that they last two weeks tops sounds a bit of an arse-on. Also, this might sound like a stupid question, but since I haven't encountered it yet - how can you tell when a clearomiser has burnt out?
|>>|| No. 20177
I just pour straight from the bottle, it's not particularly difficult with most clearos if you tilt the tank at an angle and drip the liquid down the side, like pouring a pint of Guinness. Some people prefer to decant into a needle-tipped squeezy bottle and refill using that, although it's generally only necessary with some clearo or cartridge designs that have a very narrow opening.
Clearo coils will eventually burn out totally and stop producing any vapour, but they generally need cleaning or replacing well before that. The heat causes the atomiser coil to accumulate a layer of brown gunk that makes the vapour taste burnt and stale. Fortunately the Kanger atomiser heads are very easy to dismantle and clean and with a little practice you can do it in a couple of minutes. With regular cleaning you can get weeks and weeks out of an atty head. You can see videos of how to do this on Youtube.
If you're really economical, it's possible to completely rebuild an atomiser head to as-new condition by replacing the wicks and rewiring the coil, which costs just a few pence. Again, there are plenty of tutorial videos on Youtube, and you can buy the materials (silica wick and Kanthal wire) for a couple of quid on eBay.
You don't need to replace the whole clearo with a T3, as you can just replace the atomiser head. There are two slightly different versions of the T3, the T3 and the T3s. The T3 is the older model and replacement atomiser heads have been discontinued, but you can still find them from some dealers for about £2 each. The T3s is a newer version that takes smaller and slightly cheaper replacement coils that screw into the base, but it is possible to upgrade a T3 to a T3s by replacing the base - you just need to buy a spare T3s base, available for £2 from the link below or from some other dealers. If you shop around you can find a pack of 5 replacement T3s coils for about £8.
|>>|| No. 20198
Oh wait actually it turns out I'm full of shit, it's not the TS3 that my kit came with, but something called 808Ds. I have a feeling these are probably incredibly cheap and disposable clearos; I don't suppose you know if I buy the TS3/s once all my spares have burnt out whether it'll fit the battery I have? They're described as "320mah high capacity manual batteries with 510 threading" - is the amperage too low for the TS3 clearos?
Sorry to be a dunce, I'm still learning all this stuff and it is all a bit baffling.
|>>|| No. 20199
No problem at all. 808 threading is an alternative connector, used on slimmer e-cigarettes than the more common eGo style. There are a smaller range of clearomizers available in 808 threading; You can buy an adapter for a couple of quid to connect 510 or eGo clearos if you want, although it'll be a bit of a top-heavy setup with a large eGo clearo.
The kanger 808 clearos are perfectly good bits of kit and provide a good vape, although they are designed as a disposable item. You can buy 5 for about a tenner on eBay and elsewhere, so they're not vastly more expensive than replacement coils for recoilable clearos. Disposable clearos can be revived simply by soaking them in hot water or rubbing alcohol, drying thoroughly and then doing something called dry burning - see the video below for details.

Hello! Got myself a freshcig starter kit, one battery, one clearomizer and some oil for £20. Looking at stocking up on clearomizers but for fresh cig own brand they're £5 a pop. I can find them much cheaper online unbranded. They're sealed bottom CE4 clearomizers. Do I need to buy own brand or will any sort do if they're CE4?
|>>|| No. 21179
The battery you have is an eGo type, which will accept virtually all clearomisers. The item description for a clearo will usually state that it's eGo compatible. CE4 clearos are a generic style, manufactured by lots of different Chinese companies. They work reasonably well and are very cheap (about £13 for 10), but I'm not a huge fan - they're prone to leaking and tend to give dry hits when the liquid level runs low. Personally I much prefer bottom-coil clearomisers like the Kanger Evod; They're slightly more expensive up-front (about £5) but you can replace the coil rather than replacing the whole clearo unit, so in the long-run they're no more expensive than CE4s.

Maybe, though do be aware that the long-term effects of inhaling vaporised polyglycol, flavouring and nicotine solution haven't really been studied yet. It could be that they're very minimal, or there could be some crazy link between inhaling PG and developing rat testicles on the end of your nose. They just don't know yet, though some studies I found suggested that they can have similar effects on your airways as smoking:
Although the literature is still extremely limited, I'm sure with their growing popularity there will be more research being published soon. The reviews I can find seem to be tentatively settling on vaping as a "harm reduction" - it's probably not as bad as smoking because it removes the combustion products of smoking tobacco, but it's probably not as good as not inhaling anything into your poor little lungy-wungies at all. Nicotine is still nicotine.
I'd suggest for you that if you were to get one of these, you can actually buy liquids with no nicotine in them at all. 0% concentrations simply have the flavourings in the PG or VG solution and since you've already kicked nicotine as a habit, it makes little sense for you to get your brain hooked on it again.

Propylene glycol has been used for decades for theatrical fog. Its long-term safety is fairly well understood, mainly due to a series of lawsuits in the US in the late 80s brought by trade unions representing workers in the theatre and nightclub industries. PG is a mild respiratory irritant, but that's the worst of it. The toxicology of the various flavourings are very well understood, they're virtually all off-the-shelf ingredients with a long history of use in perfumes and air fresheners. Several independent analyses have shown that e-cigarette vapour contains no significant level of carcinogens and levels of toxicants well within accepted safe levels. The most toxic thing in e-cigarette vapour is nicotine, but even that isn't very harmful in normal doses. In the absolute worst case, the risk associated with e-cigarette use is similar to that of snus, or about 1/100 that of cigarette smoking.
E-cigarettes aren't harmless, but the risks are very slight and I think there's a real danger in overstating those risks. Tobacco smoking is extraordinarily harmful and the promotion of e-cigarettes as a safer alternative should be our top public health priority. Obviously it is preferable if non-smokers and ex-smokers don't use nicotine, but that caution mustn't be allowed to get in the way of the promotion of e-cigarettes as a livesaving tool in protecting the health of current smokers.

>Propylene glycol has been used for decades for theatrical fog.
People aren't inhaling e-cig vapour like actors might occasionally inhale theatrical fog. They are inhaling it directly, from a very hot coil, deep into their lungs, in high concentration. Doesn't this call for different tests? I'm not calling you out, I honestly have no idea.

Our lass has just bought a cheap vape off Amazon. If it's nice I'll look into getting a proper decent set for us to share.
I was kind of hoping to get one that at least matches the kind of size and shape of a normal cig, are there any decent ones like that? It seems like the Kanger is amongst the better choices, but again, I'd like something slimmer and lighter.

The problem with cig-a-likes is that they aren't big enough to offer decent battery life. Cigarette-style e-cigs used to be the only game in town a couple of years ago, but the market shifted towards bigger e-cigs mainly for convenience reasons.
I'm not a particularly heavy smoker, but I used to go through at least six cigarette-style batteries a day. Now I just carry a single large e-cig, which easily lasts me all day. It feels a bit weird at first because the hand-to-mouth habit is very different, but it soon becomes second nature. I'm at the point that a real cigarette feels strange to me now, they're so dainty and insubstantial compared to the solid heft of my usual e-cig. Even the standard eGo type e-cigs feel quite petite compared to my usual setup. There's a bit of a mental shift in thinking about carrying your e-cig (singular) rather than some cigarettes (plural) but the convenience is tremendous.
If you're set on a cig-a-like, I would suggest a Personal Charging Case (PCC) system. A PCC is a battery-powered charger about the size of a fag packet that allows you to charge a cigarette-sized e-cig in your pocket. I believe that the best PCC systems at the moment are the Innokin AIO and the Joyetech eMode.

My usual out-and-about rig is a stock Kanger Evod, sometimes with a Joyetech Twist battery depending on the liquid. At home (or if I'm travelling) I use a Joyetech eVic with a Kanger Protank II. I feel a bit self-conscious using the eVic in public due to the sheer size of the thing, and it's not exactly pocketable. Non-enthusiasts just don't believe that I get exactly the same quality of vapour from both setups, but with the same atomiser and voltage, the only real difference is battery life and liquid capacity.
I've heard very good things about the new Kanger dual coil atomiser, so I'll probably upgrade my clearos when I've run down my stock of atomisers.
As regards liquids, my mainstay is RY4 from a variety of manufacturers. I'll often carry another Evod with a fruit flavour for a change of pace, or if I'm trying to be discreet. I don't like to attract attention, so I tend to either vape out in a smoking area or have a crafty vape in a quiet corner.
Light fruity flavours like lemon and peach tend to just blend in with the background aroma of cleaning products and perfumes, rather than announcing themselves as e-cig vapour as a tobacco flavour does. I have a little trick of exhaling down my jacket sleeve, which sounds ridiculous but works remarkably well - with a little sleight-of-hand, it just looks like you're scratching your nose.

Pic related is what I paid for on Saturday. It arrived this morning and I'm just testing it out now.
£38 is a bit more than I'd like it to have cost but the delivery was very prompt, everything is in good working order and overall I'm happy with what I've paid for. This is a good starting kit for anyone interested in giving vaping a go, in my opinion. I hadn't smoked for 10 days prior to now and I'm currently having a very pleasant nicotine buzz. The golden virginia e-liquid, which came with the starter kit, is pretty good, and I'm looking forward to trying new ones.

Blurbs are generally copy and pasted from the manufacturer, which in turn are usually poorly translated from Mandarin.
Personally, I think it's irrelevant - I pay no attention to the blurb, given that there are so many expert and impartial reviews available of just about any e-cigarette relaited gubbin.
I'm not massively keen on Liberty Flights, but that's mainly a pricing thing - £24 for a Vision Spinner 1300 is a bit of a pisstake when Vape Escape have them for £17.50 and some eBay dealers are doing them for even less.

I'm not sure why you thought I was talking about their blurbs - I didn't even read them myself. It was the highlighted snippet of the email they sent him in >>22446 (the greentext) that set my Johnny foreigner alarm off.

As mentioned in this thread >>22598 the problem is shit chargers, not e-cigarettes. The same thing is happening with mobile phones and tablets - the market is flooded with cheap Chinese chargers that don't meet EU safety standards and pose a fire risk.
Because the market is quite new, people tend to buy e-cigarettes from market stalls and local traders rather than reputable companies, increasing the likelihood that they'll end up with an unsafe charger. E-cigarette kits are often shipped from China with an EU or US charger, so the seller is incentivised to substitute it with the cheapest possible UK charger to maximise their profits.

Here's the new toy: Kanger Aspire tank and iTazte vv. Really liking the variable voltage and adjustable airflow with this, it's very fun for producing ridiculous clouds of vapour. Only downside is that it's so heavy (mostly due to the Aspire tank) that I'm petrified of dropping it and taking it outside. Being as I need to be able to vape everywhere to get me off smoking I'm considering buying a cheaper, shittier tank that I don't mind breaking if I drop it, and that doesn't look quite so flashy. Any ideas for one that would fit the bill?

You could buy a simple cartomizer [sic], like the ones that come with starter kits. They're dead cheap and very portable. I might have a closer look at your tank, sounds interesting, I really want to get a better vape than what I have at the moment.

If you're after a cheap and durable tank that still gives good vapour, you're probably wanting an Evod 2. It costs a fiver, has no glass parts and takes the same coils as your Aerotank. You'll probably want to stick with glass if you use citrus or cinnamon liquids (as these can cause polycarbonate tanks to crack), in which case take a look at the Evod Glass.
I'm a huge fan of the newly-released Kanger eMow kit, it's my top recommendation if you're looking for something better than a standard eGo kit but don't want a complicated mod setup. The Mow clearomiser is based on the class-leading Aerotank, uses the same coils and has adjustable airflow, but is smaller, narrower and has a metal shroud protecting the glass sleeve.
The matching eMow battery has excellent capacity (1300mah), basic variable voltage (switchable between 3.7v, 4.2v and 4.8v) and looks similar to a standard eGo battery but is slightly wider. The complete unit is relatively short in length, nicely balanced and looks quite discreet. Yours for £32 on eBay, complete with a charger and five spare coils. The Mow tank also fits flush with the Vision Spinner 2, if you prefer precise voltage adjustment.

If you need that caffeine that badly, start drinking espresso only or using energy pills/Pro-Plus. Those are just caffeine and a bit of glucose. If you wanted to find out whether a liquid caffeine solution would vape properly, you're going to need to find out at what temperature it vaporises, then find a setup that'll provide that. I think you're rather overcomplicating things by going straight for a vape.
There are easier ways to get your caffeine fix, or improve your energy levels. Go have a look in /A/ for discussions on nootropics and modafinil, or /fat/ on how to be healthier.

Aspire and Kanger are very closely matched. The old Aspire dual coil was almost identical to the Kanger dual coil, with a slightly different arrangement of wicks. They both give excellent, reliable vapour at reasonable voltages. Some people prefer one system or the other (I'm a loyal Kanger user), but there's no clear consensus as to which is better. The new BVC coil head is very highly regarded and some reviewers are calling it the best atomiser ever, though I haven't had chance to try one yet myself.

Cheers m8. Right going to have to order as i'm smoking to much tobacco at the moment. That's the issue when you don't have a decent setup!

Bought one of these. The main body came broken (after experimentation is was revealed that the positive wire isn't actually attached to the positive terminal and it is too short to do so.
A new one is in the post. Also bought some base and flavours to mix my own liquid.

A quick heads-up if anyone is looking for an e-cig kit and isn't sure what to buy.
I've just received the brand new Kanger eMow Mega kit, and it is an absolute corker. Vaping performance is a gnat's fart away from a high-end mod, but it's as easy to use as any eGo setup and the full kit (battery, clearo, charger and five spare coils) costs just £36 from myepack.co.uk or on eBay.
Build quality is excellent, it's surprisingly compact and balanced, and it looks brilliant especially in the metallic colours. It totally trumps the standard eMow kit for a couple of quid more.
I have been recommending the Vision Spinner 2 with the Kanger Mow tank, but the eMow Mega is a better option and works out slightly cheaper.
