  1. Notes, Pt. 2

    by , 09-11-2014 at 10:00 PM
    I'm going to start here with some thoughts I probably should have put in part 1, but oh well. They'll go here, anyway. I started vaping because I wanted to quit smoking. I have smoked off and on since I was about 17 years old, and I just truly detest the habit. It tastes nasty, it smells nasty, and it leaves a nasty residue on everything - including the smoker. It's just yucky. I've also always been allergic to it; ironically, that's part of the reason I started smoking. I have lived with smokers, ...
  2. Notes

    So, I've been trying to decide how to track what I'm doing, what I like, and what I don't like. Not really a video person, so youtube is out. Can't stand Failbook, so the Notes there are not a great option. This seems like the logical place, so here we go.

    I smoked my last cigarette on August 30th, 2014. It was a Wednesday. My very first vaporizer, the one I'm using now, is a gorgeous purple Vision Spinner II. Let's chronicle that first. I love the variable voltage option, but ...

Is the pro tank 3 coil any good? It's dual coil isn't it?
    Carto's are great. Apart from their reliability and sheer no-fuss (relatively) practicality there's ...

  5. Priming your coil heads

    Always remember to prime a new coil head before you start vaping on it. This can be done two ways.
