    i got a bottle of glycerin at walmart , it creates great vapor , but i find it's a little thick when mixing and seems to make my carts not last as long

    You can get it at the drug store where the Cort-aid and anti-itch cremes are.

    got some usp grade pure glycerine at the cvs pharmacy...

    so far not my favorite, but i'm still a novice at diy so could be my inexperience making the vape unsatisfactory. i'm still learning too :D

    i personally find that it's easier for me to put 1 drip of glycerin on the atomizer before i put the cart on. Rather than mix it with my eJuice. What happened was i mixed some Glycerin 50/50 with some banana juice and filled an empty cart with it and the cart wouldn't "wick" the juice down to the atomizer properly so i was topping it off even more so than normal

    I don't know about "most" e-cigs, I only have 2 types... but I have been using just the glycerin in my juice mixes and it makes a LOT of vapor. I just ordered some PG to mix with the glycerin because I don't like the "heavier" vapor that hangs (longer) in the air when using just the glycerin.

    Look where the bandaids are. It's sold as a skin protectant by Humco. 6oz bottles for a lot cheaper than that online store. Ask the pharmacy if you can't find it.

    Where do you UK people get your glycerine?

    Do Tesco have it or Holland & Barrett? I havent had chance to look for some yet though.

    It's what I've got, so I sure hope so! Everything I've seen says it needs to be USP, with no additives. Also, a few of the older forum members said it was the kind they were using, so I think we're OK. :D

    Probably not the cheapest, and not the most convenient, but Lorann's sells it on their web site. I added a 16oz bottle for around $10 to the last order I made for flavorings.

    I got pure VG at a health food store. 4 oz for $6. Michael's has regular glycerine. Wilton's 2 oz for $2.29.
