    Ok, i'm confused as well. This was a VERY good informative article and i am taking baby steps to learn all i can before i begin doing the DIY ejuices. However, from what i'm gathering from this blog entry on Nicotine, like a few others have already stated, that nicotine isn't the addictive substance in cigerettes? Only because it's only freebase nictone that can be addictive correct?

    If that's the case, then is it the tar and 4000 other chemicals in analogs that we was addicted too? Just needing some clarification cause i'm now totally confused. If there's another blog entry somewhere that explains this, i would love to read it. Thanks Danny for all your hard work in educating people in these areas....you're blessing many people and that's to be commended!!! *two thumbs up*

    im in milwaukee and forum correction ( here) to my mispelling of orchetta to Horchetta led me to chitown vapor
    will be trying them out... oh tried some Mt baker a while back ... very medicine-ie.. tried to let her steep & breathe as it was Horribly medicine like, only two have seemed vapable thus far.. not impressed ...apparently I hate menthol vapes ( lol Im black and used to smoke newports haha)
    Seduce juice seems ok but still trying to find something great from them. They gave me their Cesar in a 30ml as a gift for trying their sample pack,, its ok for an all day but by afternoon thats more than enough of that. They also have Exodus 7:30 not sure but I may re order that one

    My reply in a thread-


    Hi tj, ahh the age old stacked battery debate..

    Dual battery regulated mods stress the battery less. Modern imr battery's and wrappers are much safer than their old counter parts...

    Using a stacked battery mod with an 8v input voltage to produce 30w the amperage/ current is only 3.75 A.

    A single battery mod with 4v input at 30w produces a current of 7.5 A

    How is this more dangerous?

    50w
    Single 4v input - 12.5 amp load
    Stacked 8v input - 6.25 amp load on the batteries.

    Something to think about.. Its very simple to do it safely.

    By the way I like your signature... I've had the same mod and Atty in daily use for over a year.

    I don't know if your still on this but I have a inr18650-25R Samsung Sdi battery well 2 on a sigelie 100w and 0.2 ohms on here are those battery's okay? Also how important do you feel marrying the battery's are? There about like an amp or 2 off so yeah I usually run it at about 50-60 watts 3.6 to 3.8 volts dual coil 24 guage 5 wraps so thank you if you do reply

    Not at all, 'P'... quite the contrary. We're on the same page for both a basic explanation of just what HC is, how it applies, as well as it's value when compared to other variables.

    As this all started with the question: "so, what the hell does mJ K-1 mean in the real world?"... being able to share that curiosity, along with the desire to translate that question into terms and examples that most can understand, well... it's always good to have a second (and bigger) enthusiastic brain working at a solution.

    Your comments, conclusions and calculations, both here and in private communications over the past few days, have provided me with a rational, detailed secondary perspective as well as a valuable, "on the same page" validation... I appreciate you efforts very much.

    Cheers!

    Now an inquiry: You don't happen to know how Heat Capacities are calculated by steam-engine, do you? I was switching up builds today, going from 24ga to parallel 28ga, and looking over the numbers. As expected, Surface Area and Heat Flux are inversely proportional for a fixed wattage.

    I'm curious if there's a nice relationship between Heat Capacity and certain values - I see it increases as length increases, and as I play around just now, it appears to be vary solely on the length of the wire - two coils weighing (approximately) 123mg will both have (approximately) a heat capacity of 56.6 units, no matter how the other variables change (wire gauge included).
    Thanks very much boss.

    I do not. I've looked high and low for the exact reference to the mJ K-1 value (I imagine the mJ is millijoule, but the second part, I don't know if it's Kelvin, or what the upper '-1' references) but I've not had any success.

    Funny thing is, I've had a few conversations with Lars recently, and completely forgot about asking him to point me at the source material.

    I see HC as something not quite as critical as heat flux, where a particular "temperature range" is (albeit somewhat subjectively) desirable for an individual... but instead, more a comparator value, in the sense that you are looking for the desirable HF first... with a universally desirable, low HC value second.

    Regarding your last comment... I see HC (and HF) adjust with the variables of gauge, net resistance and parallel coil count... with wattage being the only variable that does not affect HC. Or am I missing your observation?

    Next time I talk to Lars, I'll get the specs... 'cause it really bugs the hell out of me that I don't know.

    Great pictures Ed. A Reo Mini 2.1 Copper Vein SO was my first, it was bought used and had turned to mostly dark patina. Many other metal/wood Reos soon followed, but recently I added a LP Grand Copper Vein w/adj 510. This one and it's Nuppin' are dedicated to my ADV coffee joose. It just looks and feels right for that joose. I'll be making a copper button for it as well.

    Good info Danny.
    Word of caution. I'm not 100% sure of this but makes sense. I read another post regarding the length of time you can keep and safely use the purchased or mix saline solution. 2 weeks max. tends to draw unwanted bacteria after this.
    I suppose this is why you do not see it offered from vape vendors.
    Not sure if this is true but get to idea that saline solutions are used in some bacterial growth cultures? I imagine you want to keep this mix extremely clean and fresh.

    thank you so much for your blog
    Ditto.
    Note on harsh:
    I'v read other blogs equating "TH" throat hit with the term harsh. Not sure if these two terms are the same type of sensation. Harsh for me refers to a sore feeling in the back of the throat. I can get this feeling from a carto when the juice starts to dry up. Tobacco vapes tend to intensify this feeling of harshness. I can get the taste and harsh combination with non tobacco vapes, but less so compared to "with tobacco mix".
    I do not know for sure, but what your vaping with and the condition of the personal vapor device can play a roll. So one could use a new carto for each of Danny's excellent tests. A RBA (rebuild-able ati) with clean coil might take the condition of the personal vapor device out of the equation.
    Dirty or old coils will also cause this.
    I think you were hitting on my observation with the above statement.

    All concepts have translated well including absinthe. I have posted several absinthe recipes, on this thread, and think they are fine representations of High Flavor Mixes.

    Thanks for all the time you've devoted to helping DIY'ers find their place in juice making.
    I also would like to hear your opinion on this translation to tobacco flavors.
    I've always come back to adding some type of tobacco to my mix. Fruit and candy, bakery, liquor etc. just don't do it for me in satisfying my ADV needs.
    I've come to really love TFA juicy peach at 7%, TFA tobacco at 5%, and TFA smooth at 2%.
    This has been my ADV for about 6 months now and the idea of introducing some creams into that mix has me wanting to explore with the many TFA tobaccos that I recently acquired.
    Please give us some input on this and your opinion on using creams with tobacco. Thanks, Steve

    Very nice. I have a similar build in mine coming out to .5. Truly amazing device in terms of vape quality.

    Great blog! I have been cutting lengthwise, and then cutting that in half. So I have been wasting it. I will try the 3 piece cuts. Love your ideas here.

    Oh how I wish I had seen this blog earlier. Thank you Kiwi for this information! It is such a shame we have to go digging for info that should be easily accessible. This is exactly the kind of info that makes life much easier, for vapors. Thank you so much!!!
