Thinking of trying to get into some diy juice. Does anyone have a few recipes that I should try? I'm open to any types, I'm not looking for any specific flavors, just wondering what flavorings I should order and some good mixtures to try

I'm about to buy my first box mod. Started with vape pen, now using variable voltage spinner. I'm thinking of getting a Istick 60w or Evic mini. Any suggestions?

I'd recommend the evic mini for a single battery mod

Being a busy individual I usually lean towards mods that are easier to deal with. Some mods you have to take the batteries out to charge them but I like ones you just plug in to charge and even use it while it is charging. I currently use the Smok M80 plus xpro which has been awesome thus far. The only thing I don't like about it is the batteries are built in which could be a problem in time because they can wear out before the mod actually does but overall it is a fairly effortless mod. The higher the output of power, the quicker the unit will need to be charged and unless you are looking to produce massive vape clouds you don't necessarily need a really powerful device. What I look for is a mod that can last through the course of a day without needing to be charged. My current setup of the Smok M80 with an Aspire Atlantis v1 tank with .3 ohm coils works great and keeps me from smoking cigs. What is your reason for vaping? Are you trying to quit smoking or is it just a hobby? Vaping can be one or the other or both at the same time. To me vaping is a means to quit smoking and it is working quite well because it's not just about the nicotine addiction. It is also about the physical things you do when you smoke which may seem miniscule but is every bit a part of it and probably the reason why other methods to quit smoking may not work because they just curb the nicotine addiction. As a former two pack a day smoker I don't crave cigarettes anymore and can even go for a long time without vaping but I still enjoy the physical actions of vaping as it mimics smoking a cigarette if that makes sense. I apologize for the mind spew as some of it doesn't relate to what you asked but as far as mods go they are all quite similar. It really just depends on how easy it is to use and what kind of power output you are looking for

My reason for vaping is I'm am trying to quit smoking cigarettes. I use to smoke pack a day. Think I'm going with the evic mini 60w. I probably don't need that many watts but I want something that'll last and doesn't die when the battery dies. Any suggestions on a good budget tank?

Yeah the evic is probably a good choice for you. Kanger makes some good tanks and I primarily used them until I got the aspire Atlantis. The Atlantis is more costly though because I had to get the glass extension for it and the coils cost more than the kanger does. When you get coils for your tank you should get lower ohm coils. In my experience the lower the ohms the better it tastes. The lower the ohms are the hotter the coil fires because there is less resistance. I use sub ohm coils which are less than 1ohm. The coils that are higher than that can work okay but they are prone to getting gunked up and the airflow will feel restricted when they do this. Sometimes a higher ohm coil can get flooded as well which can cause you to get some juice in your mouth which is not pleasant so try to go with a sub ohm if you can and make sure that evic can handle sub ohm coils. The nicotine makes the juice harsh to hit so as your nic level goes down it will taste better and you can turn the power up and get better hits off your vape.

I have changed my mind, think I'm going with the istick 60w kit, it comes with the Melo 2 tank which I hear is really good. I like the evic but it's a little bit out of my budget for the whole kit.

I looked at that I stick on vapordna's website and it looks like a nice mod. And it comes with a sub ohm tank too which is great. A guy I work with just got one not too long ago and I believe he is pleased with it. It doesn't look like it comes with a battery though but that's not bad because an 18650 is a fairly common and cheap battery. Depending on how you vape you might find that particular unit going dead on you before the end of the day, but I wouldn't consider that a deal breaker. If this was the case all you would have to do is maybe get a second battery and alternate between them. I think the battery cover is magnetic so it wouldn't be difficult to swap if it is needed. I had this issue with my old two mods which is why I had two of them. I would swap one out for the other when the first one went dead and this would happen daily and they both had one 18650 battery. The Smok xpro M80 that I am currently using has two 18650s built in and thus far it always lasts all day for me. I usually unplug it from the charger at around 5:30 in the morning and when I plug it in before I go to bed which is around midnight it most of the time still has around 50% battery left. It is still somewhat new though as I bought it early November I think and eventually the lifespan of the batteries will diminish.

Well, I purchased the evic mini 75w box mod. Change my mind about the istick. Waiting on snail mail now. I didn't get the full kit, just the mod so I'm still searching for a decent and cheap sub ohm tank. My local vape shops sell them for 2~3 times the amount I see online.

Congrats on the purchase. Yeah that is normal with the cost locally versus online. If you're willing to wait it can be worth buying online when you can to save money so long as you know what you are getting. That unit you ordered looks like it will be a good one for a sub ohm tank and has more then enough power to suit your needs. Keep in mind you are still going to need to get a battery for that unit as well unless you ordered it with one. It is a passthrough mod which means you don't need a separate charger and you can charge the battery while you use it which is nice. As far as sub ohm tanks go, I haven't tried any other than my Aspire Atlantis v1 because I like it that much. And I can get new coils for it at my buddies vape shop. It's a pretty basic unit. Runs . 5 and . 3 ohm coils. Airflow is great on it. The version 2 Atlantis is quite similar with the exception of an extra breather on the mouth piece to keep it cool. Both run the same coils. The only drawback to both of them is the tank is small (2.5 ml capacity I believe) but both have a bigger glass upgrade to 5ml.

Thanks, I looked at the Atlantis, I'm considering getting it, not sure yet. It's probably my cheapest option which is good. Heard the Uwell Crown is good but it's expensive. Think I will buy my battery locally.

Cool. You are really going to have a much better vaping experience with your new mod. My first mod was the pen style with voltage adjustment and it was miles behind where I am now. It's a good place to start to get a feel for vaping but nowhere near as satisfying as a good mod.

I work as a Substance Abuse counselor and what is known is that regular cigarette smoke (as well as cannabis) not only has the well known toxins but also causes damage because of the smokes inhaled temperature which can reach as high as 700 degrees F.  Because of the damage it causes I actually recommend Vaping as a form of Harm Reduction.

Yes the vaping experience as a means to kick the habit of smoking seems to work well not just for myself but many people I know. With vaping, weaning yourself off nicotine can be very gradual depending on where you get your vape juices as opposed to say three steps of nicotine patches. You should be able to drop the level by 1 or 2 mg at a time and that really does work quite well. With a more abrupt drop in level you are more prone to relapse and start smoking again with common things like daily stressors occurring. Harm reduction is the key and I believe you are right for promoting vaping because it can and does work.

Still waiting on snail mail for my evic mini. I purchased a Uwell Crown tank, but have nothing to use it on. Hopefully I get it today if not sometime after Christmas. USPS is the real grinch of Christmas. Happy Holidays Everybody.

Man they are really taking their time on that. Hopefully it will come soon. It must be coming from China directly to take so long. And it is Christmas time so shipping is slowed because of the holiday. Anyway I hope it is good for you when you get it.

Any luck on that evic yet? I just bought a Uwell Crown tank and this thing is awesome for a sub ohm tank. Much better than the Atlantis thus far. It runs . 25ohm dual coils and the airflow is amazing. They also make coils for it which you can use temp control. This thing could hit like a dripper if you wanted it to. Very nice tank

On a side note. Now that I have had some time with the Uwell Crown tank I still think it hits good but it does leak a bit. It leaks juice out of the air holes sometimes. I thought maybe it was because I filled it too much but even filling it half way it will leak from the air holes. I am going to try cleaning it up when I fill it to see if that makes it better. With the aspire Atlantis I usually run a cotton swab down the chimney of the tank as well as the mouthpiece when I fill it because juice does build up there and you can get it in your mouth. I will try this with the crown to see if the leaking gets better. It's not a deal breaker but I will say that the Atlantis does not leak like this even if I neglect it which is nice when you are using it on the go at work and such.

Have any of you guys tried and rebuildable tanks?

 

I'd like to get one and have been looking at the griffin. Just wondering if any of you had some input!

Yes. I have the ehpro big Buddha which is a huge rebuildable atomizer tank that holds 10ml of juice. It is nice but it does leak from the air holes sometimes so I don't use it much. In your case AJ I would say that if you are used to drippers, you won't get much satisfaction from a rebuildable tank. Tanks just don't hit like a dripper does so you might be disappointed. I don't know about the Griffin though. It could be a nice one. At $30 it might be worth trying as it does have some good reviews. A dripper just hammers when you hit it where a tank atomizer is usually a lot more subtle of a hit so there is a chance you might not like it if you are used to the hit a dripper gives.
