    Welcome aboard! Watch your credit card or better yet cancel it. It's very easy to want to buy everything in hopes for that perfect vape. For me a ego c twist and Kanger Evod works awesome. Skip the e cig cig a likes and just go right for a variable voltage battery and a good clearomizer. Save the hassl of being disappointed.

    Come on in and visit.....Welcome to the forums. initiation is on Fridays. See ya there !
  13. Welcome! I am also a newly registered user/long time lurker. I have been smoke free since January 2 and love vaping!

    I order a lot of my juice from Velvet Vapors - Home. MUCH cheaper than my local stores and lots of good flavors. My locals charge around $22-25 per 30 mL bottle of juice and velvet vapors sells for around $28 for a 60 mL bottle. They also have an on sale section, which contains quite a few random, often changing selections from their flavor list, which they sell for around $14 per 60 mL. Many of my favs from here are fruity flavors. My all day, almost every day flavors are strawberry or at least contain it. I like strawberry (SB), SB/champagne, SB/kiwi, honeydew, watermelon, and watermelon candy (just off the top of my head). If you like the old atomic fireball candy or red hots, try the fuego. One of the other things I like about velvet vapors is that they have sampler packages of various sizes (I think you can get five 3 mL bottles in your flavor choices for less than $15). I get a 3 mL sampler pack with every order and try 5 new flavors that I may not have otherwise bought. I have found some favorites like this and have found some flavors I was glad I didn't have to buy a bigger bottle!! LOL

    A lot of people also like Mrs. T's bakery (i think that is the name; shouldn't be too hard to find). I have not yet tried them but they have a lot of flavors based on baked goods and come highly recommended.
  14. Chocolate was my worst. I even had to throw out my clearo because I could not get that flaor out of it, even after 40,000 washes in water and a few in Vodka!

  16. Tuna is best vaped with a simple little mod you can get at many department stores and hardware stores. I call mine "the grill". Most people recommend at least v3 or later versions.

    V1 was called the "forest fire". Although it worked OK, there were a lot of reported accidents due to design flaw. Skeptics called it uncontrollable, unrestrained and dangerous. At best, the "forest fire" was kinda hit or miss. They were hard to find and if you happened upon one accidentally, you often wished you hadn't. However, even with all the drawbacks, v1 was the impetus for many technologies we use today.

    The first officially upgraded version from v1 was v2, which was called the "campfire". Although this version addressed the hit or miss of the v1 as well as the unrestrained aspect, it still had it's own inherent dangers. In uneducated or irresponsible hands, the "campfire" was highly dangerous. If not properly used, it would often "short-circuit" and become a v1, or "forest fire". Additionally, v2 also suffered portability issues as well as ignition problems.

    V3 is called "the grill" and addressed some of the portability issues of its predecessors and some safety issues. While improper use could result on danger, most of the dangers came in the ignition phase of use. V3 was powered by charcoal, which required a lengthy preheat and you had to refill the fuel between each use.

    V4 is a simple upgrade of v3, and thus, it is also called "the grill". The primary difference in design is the use of propane instead of charcoal. This allowed much shorter preheat times and easier adjustment of the vaping temperature. You could also prefill it with a quantity of fuel that allowed many uses between refills, so that was easier too. The primary drawback to v4 is that purists tend to prefer the flavor that v3 created.

    As a side note, many people do not realize that v1 and v2 also led to other PV mods, such as the oven and the stove, which eventually led to the microwave, toaster, and other mods, too.

    In summary, when vaping tuna, I recommend "the grill", either v3 or v4. If you prefer, you can also use a different "brand", called "the smoker", but I have neither time nor inclination to get into that. V3 is certainly adequate and many argue that it produces the best flavor. In this product line, v4 is the quickest and easiest, although "the oven" is an OK mod, but I do not recommend "the microwave" for tuna as I think it does not deliver optimum vaping flavor for tuna.

    P.S. Don't forget to get your tuna from a reputable company and make sure it is fresh. Old tuna tends to taste like ... well ... old tuna. Ideally, if you have the opportunity, harvest your own tuna for maximum freshness and minimal additives (hopefully).

    I hope this info clears up the tuna vaping controversy. Maybe we can perhaps close the gate on TunaGate once and for all!

    Yeah... this forum has all sorts of people around :unsure:
    also, don't mix cigar and rum, because it's not as good as it may sound...
