1) If you are in the 808 world like I was for over a year... LEAVE! the 808 world is too expensive! Had I know 5 cartos are $5 in the 501 world I would have bailed long ago... They are $10 in the 808 world. A 1300 X2 costs $30, a 1100 regular Ego like 14$. LEAVE!
2) Juice. DIY! DIY DIY! I just ordered my second batch and can now make for $35 what I was paying $120 for. If only I had known. You don't have to do it the hard way at all--do it the easy way at first. Wizard's Lab will sell you the nic juice in the strength and PG/VG you want for cheap. Go to Capella for noob-proof single flavors. Dump in the % of flavor into the pre-made juice and BAM! 36mg cinnamon Danish of 80/20 or 70/30 etc. It is that easy... Do the difficult combos later if you want. If you're vaping JC summer peach for $20/30ml, you can buy 30ml of 36mg in any PG/VG premade combo at WL for $2.75, toss in $2.50 or so of Capella raspberry (15% or so) and be set. Save your money!!
