    Does this count? Steam Engine explained

    The answer is NO to only mechs. Don't let anyone sugar coat this and smile and talk to you about protective circuitry. That circuitry can fail without you knowing it and YES, that Sigelei can explode in your hand.

    Truth be told, a lithium based battery can explode on its own...with no apparent cause or warning. Do a google search for exploding cell phones and see stories about those things blowing up in people's pockets.

    Will these O-ring sizes fit the Taifun GT-S w/ the AFC? I have the one from FT with the red O-rings, I ordered some off of ebay that were suppose to be for the Taifun GT, but they don't fit mine. I have looked everywhere for a list of the sizes for the GT-S. It came with an extra set but they don't fit right either, I've read through the Taifun GT discussion on the forum but didn't see anything specifically for the GT-S.
    Hoping someone can help, I'm getting frustrated.

    Thank you in advance

    Hi Pri !!! I wish that we had your blog, during the Vietnam War, when we military personnel were called "baby killers" and were hated by our own countrymen.

    May God bless you and keep you, sweet lady.
    Much love xoxoxoxo

    Noble, well said. I agree the discussion is what matters at this point and am super glad you wrote a very thoughtful piece about it. Also glad Phil shared some of my same thoughts as I've watched several of his videos and always have been impressed. I would like to think this could be more mainstream...the egos, and carto market more so than rebuildables. As you said so much is there already from so many independents it would be near impossible.

    Happy to keep dialog going and such...would be more than happy to start a basis of a database app to start with in an open source manner....I have unused hosting and bandwidth I pay for...why not?

    Thank you, suckerpunch, for your thoughtful reply. I realize there are problems with this system. I purposely put this up before I had fleshed out all the details, hoping to start this very dialogue. Phil Busardo was kind enough to read it and made some very valuable comments, too, and along similar lines.
    As far as mechanicals and RDA's go, I would say it's best to just lump rebuilding stuff into it's own 'buyer beware' category and provide links to all the information that's already out there on that particularly complicated subject. The system as it is in my blog couldn't possibly cover all the bases. It would require an extra layer of caveats with regards to battery amp limits and build resistance.
    Phil brought up an important point that, from an administrative point of view, it would be a nightmare to keep it up, due to the sheer number of new products and the speed at which they're coming out. It would take time and money to keep it going and make it accurate. My thinking is that one way around that would be an open source situation in which new entries could be voted on and placed in their respective categories that way, like a kind of wiki. But still, it would probably require full cooperation of manufacturers and vendors, which might be very difficult to get. And, it would be very slow.
    Some of the new sub-ohm tanks are showing their recommendations for useable wattage ranges on the pre-built coils that are sold for use with those devices, and think that's a very good start. But I can't help think about the folks like me whose eyesight renders that bit of information practically useless. Stuff like that just makes me feel that a more high-profile system needs to be in place, and one that can be accessed by anyone. My first thought was a simple pamphlet that could be printed out and distributed at the point of sale, but the way things are it would go out of date the next day, and use a lot of paper.
    Anyway thanks again for chiming in with your very valuable feedback.

    I'm too new to do a blog post of my own as a response, so this is a lengthy brain-dump of a comment....

    While I think this is a wonderful idea, and I am someone with skills to create such an online database from a coding/development and engineering stand point. However, there are several major hurdles/issues involved.

    Say we take a Tugboat RDA - great. Yet there are how many "clones" out there, many of which don't claim "clone" status, are manufactured differently (different materials, different contact design, post design, well design), some with less care/clearance/variance control. Now each of these doesn't seem that big of a deal to some, but a different post design or a different grade of stainless steel could produce an ohm difference that could become catastrophic, in theory and practice. Someone sees that a Tugboat works with a King Mech Mod and an Efest 18650 IMR battery.

    They go get said setup, but since so damn many sources buy 10,000s of Efest batteries, there's a generic description on the battery and site in terms of model numbers, coding etc. Read any of the battery forums and you find this. So the Efest 18650 battery they got isn't the 20A continuous drain and it goes boom. We need absolute and specific product numbers/data from manufacturers with reliable supply chain management for this happen for all products, right? This is just a simple example of a battery that could be catastrophic due to product/part numbers that seem rapidly changing.

    That then leads to concern that follows: I have a Nemesis Mod with a eFest IMR battery. Does it work with the Tugboat? Sure it does. But a Nemesis Mod Clone with Tugboat Clone spells a completely different experience, a completely different safety factor. Why? Cheap manufacturing = less control over variances, imperfections and quality in general. So the clones could add a 1toN of unknowns into the exact configuration, depending on manufacturing origin, tolerances and so on. Some clones barely fit together due to poor tolerances. So, in theory, they work, but in reality? Without testing them...who knows.

    This sort of control over what manufacturers get listed then becomes tedious, taxing and overwhelming to requiring near hands on experience with each product, from each vendor to know 100% what it is, how it's made, the characteristics and compatibility.

    Does it list clones, generic/unknown import brands? If so, which ones? Where does that data come from? The claims on the box/packaging of the products? The website of the retailer selling it (where did they get the info)? For a database like this to truly work and provide accurate and safe recommendations/combinations the product data would need to be clean, clear and highly accurate. That just doesn't truly exist in the industry yet, even for US made products it's scarce, and I doubt some unknown overseas factory is going to provide accurate specs.

    I know you attempted to answer this withe extension being a manufacturer "code" that classifies the products. That then sounds like it would need to be a consortium that was put into place by an independent, non-profit alliance, either between manufacturers or user-groups and manufacturers and have specific guidelines, regulations etc for the product data formats, testing/validation/verification of manufacturer claims (near anyone can spin off 10,000-100,00 mod clones from a factory overseas for minimal investment and sell them, right? thus begging the need to standardized testing/validation/verification of standard product data in standard format).

    Think about computers - the JPEG group defined a standard for imaging. The same would need to be done for this to ever be successful. Standard data points, testing methodologies, manufacturing practices and so on. Yet, that likely means things that lead to regulation of vaping before this level of cooperation, data exchange and publishing happens between manufacturers, vendors, and users.

    Honestly I love the concept and would love to see it happen, if not even help make it happen. I see it being a very long, hard uphill battle to accomplish though and not likely to be successful unless some big names in vaping and/or manufacturers get involved voluntarily.
