    Default contemplating DIY ...

    I've been looking around for DIY vendors and seem to always end up at NicVape's site (being that they're practically my neighbors).
    But I wanted to get some input of what their quality is like and should I get the flavors from them too, or should I look elsewhere on the flavors.
    Or just look into a completely different vendor.
    Another reason I keep looking at NicVape is because I want to make my juice 100%VG (or as close as possible) and they have the VG nicotine.
    I think I have an aversion to PG.

    Keep up the good vape!

    Never heard of them.

    I use MFS for nicotine base. You can get whatever percentages you need.

    FWIW, Wizard Labs has 100% VG nic base for about HALF the price of NicVape (ask me how I know...!!)....
    But WL is OFTEN out-of-stock....however, a GREAT product if you're patient and hit them when they have it!!
    I get my DIY flavoring(s) from WL, in 8ml glass bottles -- they use FA, TFA and (I think....) CAP....
    Good luck!
    Happy (vaping) Trails!

    I buy my WL nic from High Desert Vapes. It's about the same price as direct from WL, they have lots of flavorings to choose from, and I can order hardware from them at the same time to cut shipping costs.

    BTW, they have a 40% off coupon on all eliquid orders ("fortyoff"), and 20% off all other products ("2year") at the top of their homepage right now.

    Hardware: Tesla, Vamo v3, Silver Bullet @ 3.7v, Omega @ 3.7v, a pile of 3.7v boxmods. I'm a diehard, old school dripper. There aren't many of us left anymore, too bad because that's how you get the cleanest, tastiest vape.

    I've ordered both direct from WL and through HDV. My only comment on HDV based on my limited experience - Stay away from Flavor West. I know TFA (perfumer's apprentice or flavor apprentice) is great.

    WL is great but too often out of stock. I decided to order from them and it took a few weeks for them to be in stock on nic at the same time I was in position to order. At first I was thinking it was because of their move and people stockpiling but now I'm not so sure.

    When I'm watchin' my TV and a man comes on to tell me how white my shirts can be.
    Well he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't vape the same apv's as me.

    I would recommend Myfreedomsmokes.com also. They are located in Charlotte, NC. I get everything I need from them, and usually in 2 days (they always seem to ship the same day).

    They have nic in 100% VG, or whatever strength you want, along with all the other goodies.

    NOTE: I'm not associated with them in any way, just a satisfied customer.

    I've purchased from Nicvapes and found them reliable. They carry flavor west and TFA flavors. If you want more of a flavor selection try ECX.

    i only get my supplies from MFS. very happy with them. they have a very good range of flavors.

    floundering swimmer not to climb aboard a raft because it might have a leak.”

    thanx for all the replies

    is there a thread to explain all the abbreviations you guys are using?
    I understand most of those are DIY supplier websites...?
    I'm just not familiar with all of them like you are

    Keep up the good vape!

    That information is kinda scattered all over the forum.

    ECX= Ecigexpress
    TFA= the flavors apprentice
    VZ=vaperszone
    FA=flavorarts
    cap=capella
    WL=wizardlabs
    RTS=RTS vapes

    that's all I can come up with at the moment but there are plenty more. If there's one you don't know just ask we'll be happy to tell you. I've noticed someone used MFS and I never herd of that one. Please someone enlighten us.

    Edit: Ahh just figured that one out Myfreedomsmokes
