    I was suspecting the mod because it’s been misbehaving lately. Just last week on my way out of town, the R200 suddenly crapped out. Changed tanks and still wouldn’t work. Batteries were almost fully charged. (And when I stuck them in the charger later on, thinking that it was the batteries, they were still at around 75% charged) Good thing I had 3 mods with me!

    Probably why most folks don't like Smok mods:)

    There has been a ton of hate poured onto Smok as of late. I've seen it here, on Facebook, and in person. I don't get it...

    1. This mod (the R200 on question) is around 2 years old, and, IIRC was about $20 when purchased. A lot of mods don't last that long under heavy use (Provaries notwithstanding... talking in general, here)

    2. It's the law of averages... if a manufacturer sells a dozen of a product, and only 1 goes bad, that's less than a 10% fail rate... not too shabby. Smok has sold millions of mods, so expect thousands to go bad.

    3. No one accounts for user error. A percentage of these mods go bad because the user refused to RTFM, or read it, and chose to ignore it by exceeding spec or attempting to modify it. Not that they'll ever admit such a thing, preferring to blame the company.

    4. They're $30 to $50 devices. Expecting $200 performance and lifespan from a roughly $40 device is silly. If you get a $10 watch, you should not expect Rolex performance.

    I'm not defending Smok, here... I have and use all brands, and there are a few Smok devices I can't stand (the Alien has never performed up to my satisfaction), but I just don't get the hate... Smok is almost single handedly responsible for bringing the cost of vaping down to a reasonable level. There are millions vaping today that never would have taken the plunge if all that was available were $200 Provaries and $200 SX Minis and $200 DNA devices.

    This logic applies to most manufacturers...

    Just food for thought...

    I don't hate Smok products. I do only have one but I like it. The AL85.

    I was given an AL85 kit, by a friend who was talked into it by a vape shop. He hated it, as it "ate" juice (his words) and the coils only lasted 3 days. I swapped him a spare JAC, original nautilus and couple packs of 1.8 coils. He was using, for years, Itaste VV4, Kanger T3S for years and wanted something with bigger capacity. I set the AL85 baby beast with .6Ω coils at 22 watts and use it about 3 times a day. Great cloud, if you are into that, and great flavor. I don't notice my ADV 18mg giving me nic rushes, but again not using it regularly. Battery life is great, as I haven't had to swap one out to charge. But again, not used much. It does eat juice though, compared to the nautilus.

    I was given this battery and don't know if it's safe to use. Can't find it on Mooch's chart. Anyone know anything about it?

    Does it have any other markings on it?
    To me it appears to be a WAMA which are normally used in multi cell packs, about a 3a CDR.
    IMO, Not suitable for vaping use.

    It is never a good idea to use unknown cells for vaping, batteries are cheap.

    I did a quick search and couldn't find the battery anywhere.

    So don't use it.

    Wow! I started a new job (yippee!) and didn’t have time to go out for a vape. I chewed a piece of nic gum (haven’t had it in years) and couldn’t believe how dizzy and nauseous I got!
    Happy Friday all!

    Congrats on the new job. :banana:

    You don't "Chew" nic gum, chew it a couple of bites, then put it in your cheek, wait a while, a couple more chews, back in the cheek, repeat as needed. But I agree, it does not taste that good.

    There are other ways to get a nic fix when you can't vape, Nic pouches work, and the coffee is really good (didn't really care for the other flavors). Here is a thread on them Nicotine Pouches

    The snus are tempting. I've used snuff before when I couldn't smoke.

    I use more Snus than vaping anymore, but just the Swedish Snus, not the American Snus, big difference in the two. :)

    A lot of shops are also carrying nicotine toothpicks.

    The DW got some of those once, and I tried one, they don't taste very good, and there was a burning sensation on my lips. JMHO YMMV.
