    So I'm just getting into the whole vaping thing. I've been a half pack a day smoke for a long time. Used to be a 2 pack a day smoker. Very excited about vaping, and very excited about the community.

    I do have a concern, though. So at the moment, I'm using a Volt with the prefilled cartomizers it came with while I wait for my new kGo to arrive in the mail. I've noticed it's making me feel light-headed. Not in the same way as smoking too many cigarettes, though. No stomach nausea at all. Just light-headed.

    Any idea what could be the cause?

    What mg are the cartos and are you chain vaping?

    Definitely not chain vaping. It took me over a day to go through 1 carto. The cartos are 18mg.

    Its the nicotine. When I started vaping I started at 24, and that is allot. You cannot chain vape, unless your really use that amount. I love the kick of 24, but you need to be very careful. It can cause heart racing etc. What is the mg your using? I am a former smoker, who quit a year ago and starting vaping two months ago.

    18 is high, so I would suggest go down lower if you can.

    Usually people start at 18 or 24 but in some cases even that's too high. This method will dilute your flavor AND nic content but you could buy some VG and/ or PG and add it to the juice to get a lower nic level. What PG/ VG ratio is your juice?

    Honestly, I'm not sure. The stuff I have coming in the mail is 70/30, but I don't know about the prefilled disposables I'm using in the mean time.

    Unfortunately if they're prefilled disposables there's not much can be done. Will try and find a shop in your area.

    Here's an online store in R.I. but they're pricey- $20.00 for 30 ml.

    The nicotine is certainly a possibility, but I also think plain old oxygen has a lot to do with it. When people first pick up an ecig, they have a tendency to really draw on it. What I think happens is that a lot of extra oxygen gets taken in, resulting in light headedness.

    I'll try lowering the nicotine level once I get the clearomizers in the mail. In the mean time, maybe smaller draws are the answer.

    Out of curiosity, why did you look for an online store in my area? Just for shipping speed or is there something about the way this stuff is taxed that I should know about? (Don't get me wrong. I appreciate the effort, I'm just curious.)

    I just thought it would be handy in case of emergency. I once drove 60 miles (120 there and back) to pickup some juice and although I paid $30 for 30 ml I was very grateful.

    That was very thoughtful of you. I appreciate it. Hopefully I don't have any emergency situations, but I'll keep that in my back pocket just in case.

    You're welcome. The situation could be worse. My first vaping experience- shorted/ destroyed 1 batt, burnt out 4 cartos and happened to choose the most foul tasting juice I've ever vaped. At that point my wife said "I guess it can only get better" :facepalm:...ya know she was absolutely right :thumbs:

    Ha nice. I'm actually happy with the experience so far overall despite the battery life issues (that's why the kGo is on the way!). I'm really excited to try the stardusts with some unusual juice flavors.

    If batt life was a problem you'll LOVE the Kgo. Many, many times, before I began ordering direct from China, vendors would be sold out. Prolly the most popular and trusted PV out there. The power, vape and batt life is very impressive and if I had to do it all over again I would prolly just have ordered the Kgo or the E-Power rather than the Don. It hits my sweet spot so well I ended up giving away my Provari.
