    I love the concept! Very nice! Have you tried this with Rayon?

    THANK you for this. I used the idea and got some of the free samples and used them to cover my egos. SUPER easy! Great idea. Would basically any type of contact paper work? (Seeing as it probably wouldn't be easy to continue to get free samples over time from 3m. LOL

    Thanks akgofast.

    Edit: Changed my mind about Blue Moo--I don't think I can keep vaping it. It was good for a few hours and then I had to switch. Oh well. Maybe just a little too sweet or something for me.

    Forgive me if this is a repost, but I tried the Clone Castle Long from this guy's recipe. It is AWESOME. I won't be buying anymore CLR - this fits the bill for me, YMMV.

    Castle long clone recipe? Anyone?

    To be specific - this particular recipe is what I used (all TFA flavors and high VG):

    kentucky bourbon 2.5%
    vanilla bourbon 1%
    vanillin 1%
    toasted almond 1.5%
    coconut extra 1.5%
    brown sugar extra 1%
    nut bread (acetyl pyrazine) 1.5%

    for a 10ml sample let .5%= 1 drop 20 drops= 1ml pg flavor base.

    So I made up a batch of this. unfortunately did not have EcX Horehound so had to use TFA. Also lowered the TFA Absinthe to 16% and added 2% FA Anise.

    you need to steep it for about 4 weeks.

    I have been trying to copy roar's peach green tea, and pretty sure he uses TFA. I love peach and green tea, even if I have not nailed roar's yet, the peach greens I have made are pretty good. I am sure it is pretty much juicy peach and tfa green tea he uses, but maybe something else....damn seemingly simple only two flavor blends, not being simple! :P

    LOL! you should write this sort of thing as a regular column. i would definitely subscribe! 1 homemade block and 1 purchased block. but i don't really use them as intended. i found i don't put my stuff down that long...

    i found this most entertaining. i ran into basically the same thing when i went to mech's early on. wondering how far you have gotten into it since this was written. i know i have become a full blown DIY,RDA,high end mech vaporist now coming up on my 1 year vaping(NO analogs) anniversary . best of luck. D

    I tried the nicotine gum and honestly I just ended up using it as a filler when I couldn't smoke. What you have said is soooo true. After vaping on and off for over a year, I am finally able to switch to vaping and its only because I bought a vv device and upped my nic level. Now that I have done tons of research and realize how many options I have, I am so excited and truly feel that I will NOT smoke again. Analogs are so addictive and I believe the addiction is so much more than the nicotine.

    Thanks for taking the time to document this.
    There are phenomenal breakthroughs in this field, but only through experimentation.

    The manufacturer of the Evolv DNA chipset recommends using a battery with at least 12 amps continuous discharge rate. This means using a high drain IMR 18650 battery with OVER 10 amps continuous discharge rate (see above list).

    The batteries which typically have more than 3200mAh capacity are ICR Li-ion batteries which are not high drain and have extremely low amp ratings. These batteries are best used with flashlights. It's important to note that ICR batteries are not safe chemistry and can vent flames or possibly explode should they dead short in a mod. I consider ICR Li-ion batteries to be of obsolete use for mods.

    The new Panasonic NCR18650BD battery is an IMR/hybrid with 3200mAh and still has 10 amps continuous discharge rate. A typical regulated mod (non-DNA) should have 10 amps for the PWM circuitry to function optimally. This battery is a good choice for both a regulated mod or a mechanical mod for general purpose applications.

    The Panasonic NCR18650A and B batteries (3100 and 3400 mAh respectively) are IMR/hybrids but are not high drain batteries and only have 6.8 amps continuous discharge rate. Their chemistry is highly weighted to the ICR side of the fence. These batteries are adequate only for factory-made coils (1.5 - 3.0 ohm). These two batteries were designed for flashlight use.

    Great guide thanks. I'm using VTC5s at the moment. Can I get batteries that will last significantly longer than VTC5s?

    I agree....the morning is hard.....I think for me it's a mental thing; something that was routine that I never thought about. Now that I am trying to quit, I am noticing how much of a routine it was. It was sorta like, If This Then That! Lol.......

    Another suggestion: I have bought a scale for DIY mixing, and it would be nice to offer "mg" as a (volume) unit, that takes the density of VG (1.261 g/cm³) and PG (1.036 g/cm³) into account. Mixing with a digital scale is theoretically easier because you don't need syringes and clean them afterwards etc.
    Adding aroma percentages and save/load of different profiles would be even better of course. I know a lot could be added but your calculator already looks really nice so I hope you don't mind me pushing you


    I still think the vaping community needs a central "database" and wiki like wowhead.com that accumulates all wisdom about vaping, and offers ratings and a database of coil builds, juice recipes, atomizers etc. Ideally such a wiki / database should be creative commons so it can be mirrored and the source code be open. That way people would be more open to use and add to the content on the website.

    I have done a few feeble attempts at drawing a coil in 2D via CSS/javascript, but I'm still testing out options. I am trying to keep browser compatibility in mind, and to keep it simple.
    Of course 3D rendering could be optional, but WebGL is going to be standard and is supported by Internet Explorer 11 finally. I found a potentially better alternative to OpenJSCad called CoffeeSCad. It has a less verbose syntax (although a more verbose library lol). I still plan to look into that but you could theoretically integrate the library, write a class for different coils and pass a few parameters and it does all the rest.

    About the link parsing I have no idea. Again wowhead is a good example that introduced "tool tips" for items found in the game that a lot of websites used. So if you want to share information about an item, you could write a short link and the web page displayed the right name and on hover showed it's properties. That's what I was thinking.


    Cheers,

    You have to remember its a process not a goal, now that being said I will share my experience. You can reduce your analog use with e-cigs but you cannot completely eliminate them and have them about. No more than a junkie or an alcoholic could keep their drugs of choice tucked safely into a closet. For exactly the same reason.

    Is an occasional cigarette harmful? Who can say and the science certainly won't tell you. I'm a long term smoker who went through this transition. I have captured that experience and a process, take a look at the thread "How to switch to e-cigs for long term smokers" in the new members forum.
