    Just wondering if I'm the only one that doesn't buy regularly from Fasttech? Only bought a couple of Sony 18650 batteries from them. I mainly try to support the good UK vendors.

    Lol, got a funny feeling this thread wont ever get anywhere near the number of replies as the Fasttech Veteran thread ;) :D

    Use both good UK vendors and FT (and sometimes other chinese sites).

    I only vape DIY juice now and get concentrates for that from the UK. Most mods and authentic rebuildables come from the UK but I have had a few from China.

    As well as price (on some things) one of the reasons I use FT is that people actually bother to review things, so for a cloned RDA you know which ones are good and which to avoid.

    p.s. kernow!

    Buy from anywhere that's got a good deal on what I want. But mainly juices from England.

    Hi Chrissie :) A good example of why i buy a lot of hardware fron FT is this. On sunday one of my subtank bases broke, and i also wanted some new RBA`s for my subtanks. So i decided to buy what i needed from a UK vendor, I had everything in my cart and the total was just below £30.00.

    Everything was great until i went to checkout, and the postage and taxes were added, which pushed the total to £37.00 :eek: I didn`t have a problem with paying the postage, but the taxman is where i won`t give a penny more than i have to.

    I got all i needed from FT for a whopping £16.00 cheaper, £19.20 if you add the postage on, and although like yourself i would love to support british companies, there is just no way i am topping up the bloody government coffers every time i need something.
    Rant over :laugh:

    I've never bought from Fastech either. When I buy something it's because I'm just about to run out or I've broken something and need it right now. Maybe I should plan further ahead.

    I buy a lot of essentials from FT: Authentic coils, tanks, and mods. Also a few clone tanks, but after two clone mods that were DOA, will only buy the authentic ones if better value than the UK.
    I'm slowly building up a nice stash of such things too! ;)

    I still buy a fair bit here too - places like MyEPack are excellent for price and delivery.
    Liquids and DIY are largely from here: mostly Chefs Vapour, or a smaller percentage from the US.

    One thing I can say for FT is that their customer service is excellent.

    I'm part Yorkshire, part Scottish ...so like you, love a bargain :)

    @Chrissie - I'm another one who's never bought from Fasttech :D Everything I've bought has come from either the UK or France and I've also bookmarked your links, so thank you for those (the UK is often cheaper than France) :)

    The only time I used them was for a couple of long tips that I could not get in this country, other than that, everything else is sourced over here.

    I must say that the service was excellent, cheap and fast but I save so much on vaping, that I do not mind paying a small premium to our smaller vendors.

    Same here Liquidator - I've saved a fortune since I started vaping & we have many really lovely UK vendors that go out of their way to especially help new vapers, so it's good to support them :)
