Lebertine89, your understanding is solid. The safer chemistry IMR & IMR/hybrid batteries do not require protection. Just be sure to stay within the batteries specifications for amp limits (continuous discharge rating).
Thanks so much for this, having prob with shorts
Thanks sp much for doing this
This is such a great summary of the different types of battery out there and application of use. Its made things clearer for me and im sure other people! Only question i can ask is..Using the IMR/Hybrid batteries in a mech mod is there any need to use a vapesafe fuse or a kick device? Or is it just an additional layer of protection? I suppose its good option to have but if your planning on subohm coils the fuse ratings arnt really high enough to allow this. Really appriciate the effort you put into this and your other posts!
I started with a China ego battery and Kager t3s tank, The battery sucked and the tank is leaking after less than a week, I have since purchased a VV I taste battery and have a protank3 on the way, hope I have better results!
can somebody point me in the right direction to find the saline solution? any links etc etc

The regular size Vivi Nova has a 3.5ml capacity; the Mini VN a 2ml capacity. These are "top coil" devices which will provide a slightly warmer vapor. The replacement metal sleeves are easily screwed onto the top and bottom caps. However, you won't be able to see your juice level to know when to add more. You also will need to frequently tilt the device to keep the wicks wet.
The Kanger Protank has a 2.5 ml capacity. Since it has a pyrex tank, it will be safe for all of the juice flavors and you can easily see your juice level. And since it is bottom coiled, it will offer a slightly cooler vapor and not require frequent tipping. I personally prefer the ProTank over the Vivi Nova's for these reasons. Both tanks are nice and I think you would enjoy either one.
I have 2 of the ProTank ll & 2 of the ProTank ll mini tanks, these takes anything, though the minis requires more top offs, they're still great tanks.
And because they're going out in favor of the newer, dual core ones, I got mine on great deals on eBay. ProTank ll for $12 each & the mini's for $7, these were shipped prices. VaporBeast.com still gets $15 for the minis, or was when I got mine.
It would be easier to see a list of the safe products so we could buy only those instead of looking at the list we shouldn't be using.
This was just what I needed. Thank you for writing it up.
This is for an ry4 but the principles taught here pertain to most any flavor and the percentage suggested here is just a starting point. I'm not trying to mix you an RY4 per say (Although this is a valid recipe) this is just an example of mixing in general and how I approach any mix. With that said the base can be what ever your used to vaping. You can use a high VG base a high PG base or a 50/50 combo in what ever NIC strength you desire. Needing more flavoring for high VG mixes then you would normally need for high PG mixes is simply not true. The only thing to be aware of is with a higher VG base flavor takes longer to mix and meld through the base liquid and may require more steep time. Heating VG will help mix and distribute the flavoring within the base.
Some great inspiration, thank you for posting!
This is very good! I used vanilla classic. It is smooth and mild. I'm thinking about doubling the percentage for a bolder, creamier flavor. This would also be great with FA Caramel and Catalan cream for a milky creamy caramel. Thanks for the recipe, curious to see how it steeps before altering anything. Already 5/5 fresh!
Subbed to your blogs. Great Job. Saving my pennies for a provari now.
I really like this idea. Hope it cuts down in the air hole noise. I just up the road from you Westernport,MD
Thanks for all of your insight, thanks to you I feel more comfortable venturing into rebuilding and battery safety.
ecigexpress carries it I hope that this is not out of line. Danny I have read as much as I can take lol - just kidding keep the great info coming
Batteries in the MVP are not replaceable, they are build in...you're stuck with a useless box once the battery is dead. It's cheaper to buy 18650 batteries than an entire mod. Something to keep in mind.
I started with an ego battery, then went with a Vamo v5 and now I'm using a mechanical mod with a Kayfun Lite Plus.
Really helpful blog for newbies. Thanks.
I just ordered a Taifun GT and am planning on sending it to Cloud 50 so Davemodz can do his thing and send it back looking like this:
just one thing to add, if while you are at the airport you should be able to pick up one of the courtesy phones and dial information to ask their policy for ecigs (i called mine a personal electronic inhilation system which confused the person i talked to until i said ecig) and they might say feel free (like IND Indianapolis airport did in Nov 2013, and MCO Orlando, fl in Nov 2013) or be courteous of people around me. i was asked nicely not to vape around a lady and gate attendant asked my name to page me when flight was boarding so i could wander to a empty area.
