    No, I actually don't use any flavorings. I suspect that flavorings might be the most dangerous thing about vaping. (And, yes, I basically vape nic base, although I actually blend two different nic bases to get my final formula.)

    Thank you for the read. It's now all too common that shop employees and owners around here believe they know it all and barely know anything viable.

    I've been told that they have gotten fresh coils in?? The shop I actually like, the owner told me there was only 4 bottom feeding RDA on the market, told me efest are the BEST batteries for mechanical mods... The list goes on. I only buy wire locally and until these shops stop selling things @double mark-up, and hire intelligent employees I refuse to spend my money there. And I've got very little to spend in the first place.

    I have tried to get jobs there but they won't have it. They hate seeing me in the store because I think they feel threatened by my knowledge. I don't know if all, but I do my homework. I love researching what I love doing. Im passionate

    I had to help the manager rebuild an RDTA that he sold someone promising to rebuild once a week for $13 as apposed to expensive Aspire coils. I rebuilt it, showed the poor lady that coil are very easy and her to good drop in tank. She had no business using an rdta. He built it and I suspect did not get the got spots or out before wicking because she came in and one of the coils had fused and melted. Ugh. This has to end.

    These shop owners would be lucky to have anyone so interested that they are on forums like we all are. We are a dying breed. They need to realize this.

    Naw; it's the folks who haven't found their way from smoking to vaping who are dying.

    {kidding} Good point about the general level of understanding at vape shops. The exceptions seem to be the folks who really know their stuff, but only have one perspective: cloud chasing. It would be nice if the shops had someone on staff who knew how to help smokers quit - smokers from the 10-a-day guy who just needs that last little edge, to the folks like me that were burning up to 80 a day and dipping a can of snus along with them. I had to find my own way (no vape shops then).

    the op said the only thing good from the balcony fail was the drip tip. I found that funny since when I drop mine from standing height that's the only thing I usually break is the drip tip.:lol:

    I've had a few friends borrow a portable usb battery charger. Other than that everyone's always asking for a lighter or smoke until they realize what I'm "smoking" haha.

    Never had anyone come up to me in the street but at work I get asked for juice ,coils and wick all the time. I have even been asked for loan of a battery a few times. (which reminds me I still have one out on loan) I think its because I have enough gear with me to last all week and the other vapers there take there mod a full tank and nothing else. They also know I'll always help out so they just got lazy.
