Extremely displeased with Vapor Room e-liquids
After having purchased e-liquids from a couple of different online vendors, I decided to give the Vapor Room a try at the suggestion of a couple of ECF'ers. I'm sorry to say it, but I am not all pleased so far. I ordered a 30ml Green Apple flavor of the week 18mg, 75PG/25VG mix and a 5 pack of 6ml sampler. Right away I tried the Mt Do in a brand new cartomizer and for some odd reason, it burned the carto, it's as if I had ordered 100VG in that the polyfill of the carto wouldn't absorb the e-liquid very well. I filled it the same way I have been filling all my cartos, the non-condom method, filled about 15 drops, 2-3 drops at a time and waited in between. Then I had read on the site about allowing the e-liquids to steep for a few days, so I did. I tried the green apple one next, it smelled so delicious and couldn't wait to vape it. I filled up my 3ml DCT the same way I always have, exactly the same way as the video that thevaporoom.net recently put on their for the DCT's, right away the carto burned, so that over a brief period of time the rest of the e-liquid in the tank eventually all turned to a dark brown color. So then I emptied that entire tank out and tried with a fresh 2.0 Boge carto, I had the same problem as I did with the Mt. Do, burned right away. So then I pulled out another new 2.0 Boge carto, this time filling it via the condom method. Well, this time it wouldn't hit at all.
Somehow when I tried the pineapple and red energy e-liquids (both 18mg, 75PG/25VG), I was able to get both of these to work in the 3ml DCT without burning at all initially, but now the problem is there is very little to no flavor at all. I compared the pineapple with that I got from a different vendor, the difference was like night and day literally. Same exact results with the red energy.
As you can imagine, I am extremely displeased with my e-liquid purchases and although I still have 3 flavors I have not tried at all, I feel that I might as well not even try and waste perfectly fine cartos....
You know...I've been ordering from TVR for almost a year. I've recommended to many people, etc. But the last t two or three times we've ordered, the juice has been CRAP and the shipping is taking FOREVER. I feel that quality of service has just gone to the wayside. The ONLY reason I order juice from them is the nic content. Nothing else seems to do it for us. But we've been lowering our nic content and we've adjusted pretty well. I'm fixing to switch suppliers. Give Vapors, Etc. a try. That's where we are going to order from now on. TVR has lost a veteran customer because they can't get it together.
That sounds like user error to me. I always order a 50/50 mix from TVR and I have learned how to never burn a cart.
You say you are using a tank? Place the cart 3/4 through the tank. From the open side pour the juice in as much as you can and then slide the cart all the way through. Put a drip tip on and cover the bottom hole on the threaded part of the cart and start sucking away, you'll see bubbles as the juice starts to fill the cart. Keep doing his until the bubbles stop. Take the drip tip off and top of the cart with 10 or so drops slowly.
Hope this works out for ya. I have been more than pleased with this vendor. Yes the shipping time and recommended steep time sucks. I think it's a small operation and they obviously struggle to handle the flow of customers coming their way.

I've had some time with their juices after the recommended steeping time (Around 6 days) and they taste great!
However, the pomegranate is not really working that well. The first 10 puffs were great, but there was a nasty burnt taste right after that. I dripped even more e-liquid in (used the condom method, tons of juice absorbed and let it soak for over a day) and it made it taste a little better.
The Port Menthol was great all last night and the Dragonfruit is working great today as well, but it did need more juice dripped in just like the Pomegranate. It's lasted over an hour now so I'm not sure what the problem is.
Could be the cartomizers themselves... I'll have to keep trying and see what's the problem!
Edit - Let the cartomizer soak again, only got 3-5 good puffs then it went back to the nasty burnt taste. Switched cartomizers so I'll let that bad boy soak for awhile before I try again.

I have been ordering from here since I started vaping a couple of months ago.
There are some juices that just must steep in order for them to be to my taste. I think that goes for most vendors juices.....and it does differ from person to person with taste too.
As for shipping time, I think it varies with how busy they get with their specials. If some of the more popular juices go up on that weekly special, I have noticed the wait time is a little longer, but I know there are vendors who take longer with their shipments as well.
It's a shame that you are disappointed.
I really don't get it. Or what method you are using to fill your carts since that thread you refer to covers just about all methods - syringe, dripping and condom. Hell, I'm using 100 VG TVR liquids in SmokTech LR DC cartos and not burning anything. Using a syringe to fill, no matter what the liquids.
I love TVR, does that mean i love every juice? oh no no no there are a few juices i have tried that were aweful. I chalk it up to not liking the flavor. All i can tell you is i am for TVR all the way i love the sweet strawberry!!
I've been very happy with TVR; I've ordered about seven or eight different flavors from them. They're one of the few vendors that I'm aware of that offer 75 VG 25 PG which is my preference. Of course not every flavor is going to be the best thing since bottled ketchup to me, but overall I'm quite happy ordering from them.
I'll take your liquid if you don't want it
I love the Vapor Room and highly recommend it to everyone. I am sorry for those of you who are disappointed. I think they are doing a great job and are very reasonably priced and ship very quickly also.
