I posted this reply to someone asking about battery life. Copying to the blog for easier reference in the future.
[QUOTE=BiffRocko;1973199]To figure out how long a battery will last, first calculate the current with Ohm's law.
I - Current
R - Resistance
I = V/R
(eg. 3.1v / 2.5 ohms = 1.24 amps)
Then figure out how many hours it would last under constant load.
Hours = (mAh rating /
When I first found a chatroom full of vapers, I was a little skeptical. Was that device in their hands really working? I lucked out and found a great chatroom with helpful, fun individuals, and my kit arrived the next week.
I keep trying to think of why I smoked to start with. 22 years of fouling my lungs and my system. My children begging me to quit since they could talk, coming home when they were very young, crying, saying "Mama, my teacher says you're gonna die 'cause you
[FONT=Georgia][SIZE=3][I]I smoked my last analog this past Wednesday. I'd play a funeral dirge for it, but the only things that "died" were those nasty cigarettes and the stench they left behind. I can't say that I'm at all upset over it. I started vaping thinking that I could save a little money and stealth vape at work or in my car when the weather is nasty. I didn't pick it up with the intention to quit smoking analogs entirely. Well, here I am almost a month later and the analogs are
Now it's fall...I did indeed have a vapetastic summer. I got down to 1-2 cigarettes a day, one after they went to sleep at nap time and one before bed. Then I told my husband to stop leaving a cigarette for me at naptime. I shifted to wanting one as soon as he got home but after a few weeks of that, I just vaped like crazy right before he'd get here and then vaped while making dinner and got down to one when they went to bed and one right before I did. Then I dropped off the one when they went to
So, it's been about six weeks since I started using a PV. I didn't really switch to quit - I switched to switch. I got tired of coughing and getting hangdog looks from my husband, stepkids, and mother. My dad smokes like a chimney, so there was never any judgment there, although I'm sure he'd prefer I didn't smoke. You know how it is.
I started out with a 510 pass-through, since I did most of my smoking either while on the computer or driving (and I got an adapter to plug the PT
