    Got enough troubles in my life to worry about what other's do. If it is a dis-service and something bad happens, well I guess the shop would end up in a lawsuit.
    In a past life I must have been a crow, because now as a vapor if it is shiny I got to have it!

    I think it all depends on
    1) the customer
    2) Instruction and support given

    I mean... what exactly is the step between a protank setup and an RDA?

    The new Kanger sub-ohm coils?

    Nope...you ain't in the ballpark....I have a problem with starting someone out with a mech. Maybe y'all don't agree but I think it is totally irresponsible.

    Um, in my honest opinion, I wouldn't have recommended a newbie to a mech mod and RDA. But then again, it's a free country and it's buyer beware. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I feel like you should do a little research and know what you're getting into rather than trusting some random person trying to sell you something. Yeah, got trust issues issues among other issues...

    A variable w/v mod IF you are going to sell a new user a RDA/RTA. Still not a good idea for a new user.

    Turns out the person in question had the vape shop make his coil setup. They made two 0.58 ohm coils which turns out to be less than 0.3 ohms overall. He's using a battery with a 20 amp continuous discharge rating, which is in the grey area of margin of safety. I warned the guy that just a loose post screw or a ohm reader being off +/- 0.15 ohms could be significant. Did what I could.

    Definitely not the setup I'd recommend to a novice vaper as their very first ecig.

    It definitely depends on the customer. If the customer is knowledgeable about ohm's law, battery safety, and rebuilding coils; then why not? If a shop sells to the needs of the customer, then it's doing the right thing. In fact, I think it is irresponsible for a someone to have a one product fits all attitude and points all newbies to Evods and Ego batteries.

    Now the other end of the spectrum, where someone steers someone who is not knowledgeable and ready for mech mods and rebuildables, that is also wrong.

    I didn't even see the post where he said what he got or was running. I just congratulated him on trying to quit.

    I think most vapers on here do speak up if they see something that has the potential to be dangerous. I've seen multiple threads where several members have tried to steer someone in the right direction.

    Still, I missed this. If I'd have noticed what he bought I would have said something.
