    Must remember not to dis-assemble my mod and lick the innards. Thanks for the heads-up.

    sheesh... whats next?
    Silver solder melts at approx 850 F, imagine how nasty the juice would be at that temp.

    Unless they are using the solder for the coil, there shouldn't be any way for the solder to end up in the vapor.

    That's Bulldor, what next are they going to say? Don't even try to answer as it's a rhetorical question.

    Silver solder is usually used in the production of audio equipment and is also used because of its higher conductivity in other environments. And in a vape mod it would be way, way away from the coil and as @Bunnykiller has mentioned nowhere near a temperature that would cause any issues.

    I've been using lead solder wire for my coils, have I been doing this wrong the whole time? Should I be using silver instead?

    Well, I believe any "study" from a lab so I am going to join you in using lead solder with lead culled the from water in Flint, MI.

    Silver solder is sometimes referred to as "dairy solder" because of its use in milk and food handling equipment. Not only is it lead free, it's stronger than electrical solder. There are different alloys used, some of which melt at lower temperatures.

    Part of the problem is that “silver solder” is not one thing. Solder is a metal alloy designed to melt at for what is for metals a very low temperature. A metal is called “silver solder” or “lead solder” in theory depending on what the primary base metal is. The actual contents of a given make/model of solder vary quite widely though and are often proprietary.

    Lead used to be a common component of many solders but it was made illegal to use in the US because lead is toxic. The most common replacement for lead in solder constituents was silver. This “lead free” solder is often referred to as “silver solder”. A solder called “silver solder” does not have to actually be “lead free” though, it merely has to have more silver in it than lead.

    Thanks for the replies. Seems to me that this is another attempt to keep the frenzy alive and away from Big Weed. They're losing the scientific/fact based argument so they have to rely more and more on hysterical theories and social stigmatizing. This new meme proves it, imo.
