    A few quick seconds with a dremel or die grinder with a burr on it, and the opening is perfect for inserting the whole nautilus mini from the top assembled.

    I'd say go for it, and just open up the ring a bit with a grinder for ease, or fill the tank and screw it on upside down so you don't dump the juice.

    A lot of online internet seaches, including tidbits from ECF and Battery University. Google search is my friend. Many of my resources are listed as footnotes at the bottom of my blogs.

    Well, this is a timely post. I have a few purples in my ebuy watch list and was considering making a purchase very soon. Perhaps I will reconsider for now and continue with my homework.

    Thank you very much for the heads up, 'tude!

    Just passed 8 months vaping and 7 months tobacco free. Gone from 24mg to 18mg now mostly 12mg. I have found that unflavored liquid can be as enjoyable as flavored. Also mixing around 75% vg. I have extracted flavoring from cigarette and pipe tobacco and enjoy that as well.

    Cheers buddy, its also worth mentioning that one of the main reason i think people have choosen Li-ion/Li-Mn batteries over others is because they dont have a memory like old style batteries and can be partially discharged then recharged without loss of capcity.

    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).

    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!

    ShariR, both the Mini Vivi Nova and ProTank are good delivery devices for a novice; easy to fill and use, and both are "rebuildable", meaning that the heads (heating coils and wicks) inside the tank are easily replaceable after they burn out (approximately after 3 - 4 weeks of use).

    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 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.
