    As a new Vaper myself, I spent hours upon hours searching for this information. Many questions were asked and many links were given to me. Those links, and question answers are all here. This is a list for basic direction, but does include some liquid discussion, supplier discussion, etc. This is designed for the basic over and over again questions with the same links usually provided, but just put in one place easy to find. I tried as hard as I could to credit the author of each link. None of this information is my own, but rather a compilation from mostly ECF, but a few from around the web.

    I hope this helps some folks out.

    Huge THANK YOU to all the people who took the time to make this information available to us all.

    First lets get some terminology and a few things you can expect as a new vaper out of the way.

    Good work Keeferes! I take it this builds on your post 'One Stop Noob Shop'? I've posted a link to that a couple of times.

    Yes. This expands it with alot more information. It also puts a better title as to not turn off anyone by calling them a noob. I don't mind that term, but I'm not everyone. It was brought to my attention the title made it sound a bit condescending and rude to some. That's wasn't my intention at all though.

    Wow this is great. I have been reading the forum posts for the last couple of days and seeing all these acronyms and other words that I have to deduce by reading more posts. I have now bookmarked this! And yes, it should be a sticky and especially needs to be posted for the new users threads.

    I would like to see sub ohm and dripping separated. There are many of us that drip but never never sub ohm. I am not sure it is a great idea to pair them. Tends to give a new vaper the impression that you have to sub ohm to drip.

    I can see that. I honestly didn't think about it when I put this together, I just kind of assumed if a new vaper read the other information regarding battery safety, ohms law, etc, they would kind of figure that out. Especially with the links about rebuilding, as most are referencing SR, and not sub-ohm.

    Another very well done guide.
    Should be a bit easier to get the noobs to read seeing as you left out the noob word.:D

    Bookmarked and will be linked to often.

    I agree with the stickie in the new area.
