    Greetings ladies!
    Seems I am always obsessing over something... can't make a purchase without spending long hours researching - what's the best model? where is the best price? And when I find something I like I tend to go overboard (which was really costly when I fell in love with diamonds):blink:
    So obviously my new obsession is vaping, and all that's involved with getting set up for that. I was introduced to all this by an NJoy kit I got for xmas. Quickly realized that I wanted a different model. This forum has been a tremendous help, although it has also cost me another small fortune -- every time someone raves about a new battery or a longer lasting carto, I rush out to buy it. eeeks.
    So now in only 3 weeks I'm the proud owner of: 2 RN4081s, 2 V4L kr808-d1s, 2 Riva 901s, and a Bloog should arrive tomorrow. LOL It was only thru sheer willpower that I stopped myself from buying the new V4L VK with the gem-faceted tip last nite (so pretty!) Am fairly sure the willpower won't last more than a week.
    But I justify this madness by knowing I would have spent close to that on cartons of smokes in the same time period. And this is more fun, less messy, and better for me.:toast:

    Star, welcome to my world! LOL We all start off needing everything in sight..gotta have, need that, it's sooo shiny!
    But you will settle in once you find just the right device, just the right flavor. I found mine and yes I feel for the diamond series battery..just one though. But I did get some other stuff too! All because I haven't ordered in soooo long and it was ON SALE! Hubby is gonna shoot me.
    All in all I average $100 every 3 months..that's what I spent a month ..before the prices of smokes went crazy! Now it would be a fourth.
    Hubby is spending $200 a month on smokes..he should talk.
    I tried several mods..most not worth spit after a week. I tried carts and got sick of refilling along with batts that lasted no more then 2 hours.
    I like my extra long batts and cartos. They fit my need for pretty and last a lot longer then some of the mods batteries.
    lean back and vape for a bit with what you have then shop..you will see that what you need is not always what you want.

    Had to laugh @ "it's sooo shiny!" :) Congrats on your Diamond battery -- I can't decide on a color, leaning towards purple or black. Which did you get? And your comment "what you need is not always what you want" holds true for so much in life, eh?

    I got the regular size meltalic red with a white LED. I don't care for auto since I refill and sometimes overfill. So one will do me. Plus red is the only color I didn't have. (that I wanted)
    They did just the opposite of what I wanted them to do. I wanted white LED's on all batts with removable ash colored caps (faux gem stones..whatever). That way we could buy a box of stones or colored ashcaps and switch til our hearts are content.

    Oh well I will keep pestering them..Mike says I am good at nagging.

    How are you doing on nic? high..low? Cravings?

    Welcome to ECF and The Womens Room :):)

    Thanks for the welcome Fudgey. The doubled 4081s came in the kit, as did the doubled Rivas, the VKs I doubled myself, as I wanted one manual and one auto to see which I preferred. The auto is the metallic red (pretty!!), so now I gotta think of another color for the Diamond tip.
    MK: I think a few people requested removable caps -- ladies like to coordinate accessories to their outfits and moods ;) Keep on pestering them LOL. The NJoy kit came with 18mg (they call Regular). Everything I've ordered from V4L and Gourmet Vapors has been 11mg. I was an Ultra Light smoker will stick with that or lower. I think because I was not heavily Nic-addicted I am not having issues with this switch over.
    The worse part is I am vapping more often than I had smoked because it tastes so good and there is no clear end to it like with a cigarette. A plus side is I just might lose some weight because this is also satisfying my sweet-tooth!

    Yeah, I was eyeballing the Hendu... someone here mentioned it and it was very tempting.... but now that V4L has theirs, and cheaper too, I'll go that route. Sure liked the color of the Hendu tho.

    I have manual VKs (not new ones), Rivas, SS Pitbulls and a Hendu....The SS are the sleekest, and the only autos i like. the jewels make great light patterns if you're vaping in the dark :lol:

    Welcome starsong, what a pretty name, most of us go overboard at first but once you find what works best of you and the flavor's you like it will be a breeze, I only use V4L auto's but went crazy on juice at first, now I'm pretty settled on the flavor's I like, and yes I did get 2 of the XL diamond batts, I could not resist them.:facepalm:

    Thanks to the sale I was able to finally order my own diamond battery - got the red+white tip too, can't wait to see it. Looking back at my original post on the 21st I said I was fairly sure my willpower to resist buying it wouldn't last more than a week. I bought it on the 28th, exactly 1 week later. LOL, do I know me or what? Also ordered some RY4 cartos... might be my new favorite.
