    so i am not new to the concept of vaping i started 4 years ago with an xhale 02 (less then 150mah automatic) i guess its a super micro (which the company seems to somehow still be in business but nether the less) being a full time smoker of between machine and hand rolled cigarettes i have no clue what my cigarette count was but it had to have been between 1.5-3 packs depending on the day (i was down to about $0.03 a cig) any where between every 15 minutes to an hour most of the time less...

    so any ways i am a pretty big smoker.... so fast forward to about 2 months after buying the super micro with my huge lung capacity for smoking i would chug through the super mini in about an hour and have to throw it back on the charger which means that i would be switching back and forth between the micro and analog... not such a good thing with charge time... i was back on analog for the next ~4 years..

    Well this go around i decided to try an ego kit 2 batteries (650) atomizers with cartridges and vaping pure pg non tobacco flavor (peach, bananna, and wild strawberry from my local shop) vs pure vg winston flavor the first time around... this time around i was able to quit analog cold turkey and go straight in to vaping the ecig... not necesserly liking what i had i started looking online at the different things that were available that i didn't even know about back in 2009...

    thats when i made the mistake of joining the #efc irc chat.... to try and figure out why i wasnt fully satisfied with the current setup it filled my nico fix but its not the same the vapor is dry and i was sure there was more flavor in the juice i was buying as well @ $1/ml at my local shop i was sure there was better quality liquid at a more reasonable price...

    so here they are showing off there mods and other unreasonable trinkets that no reasonable human should spend money on....


    so i placed a small order for a few things from a few different suppliers


    it started off fairly reasonable with a small order VaporBreak with a vamo v2 vv/vw a "DID" and a "Phonenix" rebuildable atomizers

    so friom this point i needed some mesh and some wicks so i placed another small order at OKC Vapes - Oklahoma's Premier Supplier of Electronic Cigarettes, E-Liquid, and Accessories! for some 2.5 mm Silica, 500 mesh 12x12, some 1.5 mm Silica Wick

    then i thought well i need to get some batteries for the vamo so i went over to AltSmoke.com | Personal Vaporizers | Electronic Cigarette | Ecigs | Your one stop shop! and placed an order for 2 efast 18650's and knowing i wouldnt see the vamo for at least a month or so i also through a cheap silver bullet in the cart

    after making the order there i realised that my previous order at okcvapes should have included a charger so i placed an order for a trustfire tr-001

    i then needed some kanthol to wire the rebuildable attys so i then did a bit of research on here and came to find a place called TEMCo Industrial Power Supply that sold a reasonable amount of wire for a decent price so i ordered severl small 25 foot rolls of different sizes to expirement with...

    as be told the guys in the #ecf irc chat kept recommending that i try some juice from Welcome to Black Velvet e-Juice - Oklahoma's finest! and they had recommended that i try the strawberry, ecto cooler, and blue slush puppy based on what i was currently vaping and on the discussions we had been having in the chat... i am a big sucker for pure and straight vanilla so i purchased some Vanilla Blast...
    lets just say that what that guy is asking for his liquid i spent $3 more with him then i did at my local shop on friday i got 2 2/3 more liquid and an actuall gage of nic content and pg/vg mix


    promptly after ordering i then felt the need to attempt to contact the owner which just happened to be in the chat and asked him about his vanilla i am really not a big fan of weird vanilla flavoring... and thus had buyers remorse as to buying it because it might not be what i wanted ... he said no problem i can throw in some other liquid of another flavor look at the list and tell me what you want... im a gambler at heart so i told him anything but a mint flavor... more on this when it arives

    after tinking about it for a bit and realising that most of all of my items would be ariving over the next couple of weeks except the vamo and rebuildable atomizers i had purchased from china i got worried and went over to RTD Vapor AW Batteries and placed an order for an aga-t (not a +) Genesis style rebuildable atomizer

    as my reasonibly small order comes in from this small selection of vendors i will continue on with all of this...

    (p.s.) i think i got everything but we will see

    No WAY you're ever going back to cigarettes now! Once you find a juice you love, and with the awesome gear you now have, you are set up!!! If it worked for me, I know it can work for anyone!

    Funny how those small orders add up. ;) A little here, a little there, before you know it......how much did I spend?!?!?!?

    Now you have the pleasure of getting LOTS of vape mail. It's like Christmas each time! Sometimes it feels like I'm more addicted to mailman stalking than I am to vaping :laugh: :lol:

    Welcome to the club!

    Mailman Stalking -- never thought of it that way. But you're right it seems like, lately, every day brings a new goodie(s) of some vaping type or another with the morning mail. A bottle, or three, of juice, a new batt or charger, a few drip tips, or whatever latest toy that caught my eye a week or so ago... ;)

    well aside from buying what can only be describes as way to much kanthol and the the aga-t (i should have spent the extra and got the plus with the quartz)

    Most to all of it was actually planned out and shopped over a week ago i got my taxes back and made the purchases... my marker was $250 not including liquid with liquid the aga-t and the unexpected drip tips it was just at $280... the only thing that was on the list that i ended up not ordering was a drip shield and a hand full of lr/sr bridge less atomizers...


    its not necessarily impulsive in this case i set expectations did the reaserch and got what i felt i could do with... the only thing i got carried away with was 5 spool's of a1 kanthal from industrial supplier... but 25 feet was the same price as most sell 9 feet
