    Hello everyone, Newbie here from CT

    I have a feeling this is going to be a baaaaaaaad hobby for my bank account.

    I started with a Blu e-cig starter pack earlier this summer, before I found this website and all the great information.

    After reading on here and seeing all the variety of juice and equipment I have been scheming and fantasy shopping for all the goodies I wanted to get.

    I ended up buying two orders of equipment from DV for to hold me over until I find out more about the variable voltage and wattage models. They are a CT company so I figured it would get me some quick shipping, and their prices appear to be competitive.

    My first pass at equipment was a DV eGo-T Starter Kit - Black - 1100mah that came with two CE5 clearo's, and I also threw a glass clearo on the order.

    My second pass after I learned more was some atomizers since I now found out what dripping was (not rebuildables yet), some carto's, and a 510 battery charger that I am hoping will charge my blu batteries because the pos battery pack burnt out

    I also ended up getting some juice from Aroma Ejuice (with WTA), some from MBV, and smaller samples from Heather's Heavenly Vapes, 5 Pawns, and Vaperite.

    This is going to bad, like my love for scotch. Anything that has such nuances, and variety is super interesting.

    Thanks everyone!

    I thought I should add, because I thought it was amusing...

    I kicked off all these gear orders this past cloudy saturday, because I was stuck on the ground.

    Aroma Ejuice won the shipping battle, they win the high honors of being the first ever vaping product to make it to my doorstep. Which was funny because I was staring them down yesterday, wishing my equipment got here at the same time.

    I have been playing the USPS tracking package stalker game, and it looks like I got a bunch of boxes waiting for me when I get home from work today!

    Welcome.
    DO NOT use a standard 510 charger on BLU batteries. The polarity is reversed and they might explode. The least is they will burn out.

    Thanks for the heads up. Do you know where I can get a charger so I don't have two useless batteries?

    I see there is a charger available on the blue store. I might end up getting it. I bought some 306 carto's that will fit well on the blue batteries. I like the idea that they are small and discrete for using at work.

    It was like Xmas last night. Got my two ego batteries charged up

    Learned about filling cartos. Thanks ECF you tube members!

    Filled a carto with Aroma juice WTA infused RY4, wow!

    Also tried MBV cinnamon roll. Good but flavors seems weak, maybe a steep will help?

    That's awesome man I need to get over there sometime. I can't believe there isn't a shop in central CT. Enjoy, a steep always helps.

    If you love good scotch, you're going to love Five Pawns. Gambit is one of my all time favorites, though too heavy for an all day vape.

    You done good man. DV is an awesome vendor. Eric, the guy that runs the place, is a great guy. Very helpful, very quick shipping, and good products.
