    It involves detoxing while serving time. Unless he makes some raisin liquor in a ziplok, hiding it in the toilet tank. Travis County inmates is a crafty bunch...

    Just watching Channel 42 out of Birmingham.....they are doing a story on e-cigs, and are showing Vulcan Vapes Store and interview with the owner. The owner says he sells eGo and 510 kits and Halo juice's (up close shot of pretty Halo blue bottles......featuring "Kringle's Curse" He tells basic's about vaping and a customer tells his personal story of quitting smoking, how he can breath better, more energy and feels better. His store looks really nice and alot of different juice company's like Alice in Vapeland, The Mad Alchemist and Five Pawns. Plus more I couldn't read the labels, looked like all was glass bottles. Didn't see any plastic bottles on the shelves.

    Then news reporter says Birmingham smoking ordinance says you can use e-cigs in bar or restaurants. *gasps* But is it really that different than a cigarette.

    Then interview with and old doctor from UAB (teaching hospital) (He clearly doesn't know enough to give an honest view <---my opinion he is arrogant) He says "Well they say it is a purer form of nicotine but it really isn't that pure and these company's say it only contains so and so their talking about the chemicals that can be measured in the solution NOT what can be produced by the chemical reaction that occurs. The FDA is currently researching these ecig companies."

    Back to reporter, she states that the e-cigs are largly unregulated however many places like Vulcan Vapes abide by the same rules that tabacco stores do and they refuse to sell to customers who are younger than 19 years old.

    Weatherman then laughs and says "Well you won't need one of those devices to produce vapor in the morning", then mimicks blowing cold air.

    Just thought I'd share but the store looked awesome, I'm gonna have to visit!! About 2 hours away but a really professional looking store.

    The media just can't help themselves, but to sensationalize something that will potentially help people solve an extremely difficult problem. But when have good news and positive views ever brought up ratings or sold a rag? Such is life.

    Do you think you're penalized for just "topping off" the battery as much as a full discharge/recharge cycle?

    Wes
    If you use the battery to 50% and recharge, that's roughly half a charge cycle, so you can have roughly 600 of those.
    if you use the battery to 0%, that's a full charge cycle and you can have 300 of those.
    but there are people who say different things, some say it's better to recharge at 50%, some say it's better to recharge at 5%
    I say charge when convenient and don't worry about it.
    Forecast: Cloudy.
