    Lower wattage in the tank than the dripper? I have noticed that fruits sometimes seem to taste better at lower wattage. Orrrrrr maybe it's all in my head lol

    I haven't done shit vape wise. Not even vape due to this damn cold and bad cough. Each time I try to vape I hack up another lung. I hate being sick.:cry:

    A bath for an hour in the hottest water you can handle with a cold pint of Jack will fix you right up!
    It works for me.

    Screamed, cussed, almost threw things. Trying to put new coil in the Rebirth to try in single coil mode on the Squeezer squonker. While pulsing the coil (with no cotton) the coil catches on fire. I'm talking legit flames. Pull that coil and try again. Same result. This time I noticed the negative post was wiggling. This also explains why the resistance was dancing around each time it got touched. The neg post is not milled into the deck, but sits under the positive post separated by the peek insulator all held in by the 510 screw/pin. So I pull it apart and see a scorch mark on the flat leg of the neg post and the corresponding side of the peek. Very frustrating as this RDA has great potential brought down by poor design execution.

    Just got this thing last month. Not the first time I've thrown money away on Chinese junk

    So after the failure of the After...err I mean Rebirth I pulled a better made Hellvape DR SQ out of storage and it's now happily vaping on the Squeezer.

    Made 750ml of my Uber ADV. This is the only juice I'll vape in my car. The Uber customers like the scent, saying it smells like a combination of fresh baked cookies and brown sugar.

    Sounds tasty. When I make the leap to DIY I'll have to try to get the recipe from you.

    That REALLY sucks. So sorry.

    Also hope you feel better soon. I was just sick myself, really sick, for the first time in years. No damn fun at all.

    I ordered the Samsung 30Q batteries and a 2 bay Nitecore battery charger from Liion Wholesale for my Polar mod that is being shipped from Vaprzn. I can't wait to try this new setup.

    Kind of surprise, placed an order with nic river yesterday. First venture into real diy beyond buying premade nic base and flavor shots years ago. I was a little skeptical, some have had issues with nic river's slow shipping but got an email said they shipped.

    I guess waiting for a few days to finally order paid off. I wanted to try their FA fuji apple everyone seems to love and naturally out of stock. It came back in stock so managed to get it. Flavourart juices were 2.25 for a 15ml bottle the other day, now 3.40. Went ahead and grabbed the kit and tossed all the FA flavors that went up in price into the diy bundle.

    I'm sure it'll get cheaper once I find flavors I like and know how much I'll be using. Not too bad though. Ending up with 500ml pg, 1500ml vg, nic, the handful of extras in the kit (neither here nor there) and 29 flavors. A couple extra bottles, a 30ml amber boston for nicotine, a couple 8oz and 16oz squeeze bottles for the vg/pg. Still need to get some amber boston bottles in 60ml or 120ml but they seem cheaper and more readily available on amazon. For storing the rest of the nic in the freezer. Unfortunately nic river only had clear boston bottles in 60ml, no ambers and either way they don't carry the proper phenolic caps that seal well. Need to grab one of the aws scales off amazon still.

    I'm the same way sometimes -- one flavor of ejuice I vape, yet still sometimes procrastinate till my active bottle is nearly empty. :facepalm:

    My Polar starter kit arrived today from Vaprzon. Very pleased with them so far. Great prices and got 20% off my first order. I only opened the box they shipped it in, have yet to rip open the plastic on the Vaporesso box. I will do so when my batteries and battery charger arrive Monday from Liion Wholesale. I'm really looking forward to learning how to use this mod.

    Cleaned and rewicked a 24mm Dead Rabbit, broke out the Raptor squonker, put the clean Dead Rabbit on the Raptor, made some Carmel kettle corn juice, and listed an rta in the PIF section.

    Rebuilt. Threw in some over priced framed staple aliens. Hitting at 0.12 ohms. And of course my favorite juice.... seems to be the only juice line that i can enjoy right now. Has the right balance of fruit and menthol. [​IMG]

    It’s a solid squonker for sure and for the price it’s even better. My only gripe was the squonk bottles didn’t have metal collars so I used a spare Crea bottle...the stock ones just bubble a little so not a huge deal.

    I got my order of 3 IJOY limitless RDTAs in yesterday's vape mail. Today, I put coils and wicks in one. It works just as well as the IJOY RDTA Combo 2 I can't get anymore. [​IMG]

    I vaped. I also swapped out a coil in an rda. About half talking myself into looking over the Gloom mod that decided to go wonky a bit ago. Not sure what happened to it exactly. I was vaping away one minute, holding a brick the next. It was not battery charge issue. I have it set aside until one of those days when I can motivate myself to dig into it & figure the problem out. Might can fix it although I'm a feared it's an electronic chip issue. In which case I'm a up the creek and no paddle. Not an engineer or electronics nerd like that. Sure I can the simple stuff but sorting a chip out? Little beyond my keen. But, ... yeah, tackling it might put onus on me to ... *gasp* learn. *grins*

    Updating 17:36 EST

    Took it apart save for the battery screw in the tube. Wires 3, all looked clean and not fouled or kinked. Arcing, no signs of arcing either on the switch where appears to be the mosfet / switchfet which is the only "chip" bit in it or along wires or soldering on wire to part terminations. In short it looked fairly clean inside. I did not get the fet fuse out to check under it. I (was going to call lack of dexterity but realized a bigger screwdriver could fix that) probably could get the screw in battery tube out to look at the bottom of the fuse. I was tired from helping her dad with wood today, didn't feel up to finding a bigger Phillip's screwdriver. As all the rest appeared clean and in order I'm not thinking the underside of the fuse would reveal some earth shattering "That done it!"

    I may be in error but have enough experience that usually if 95% or better of something seems clean like that, there's no damage in the rest. Yes, I know it seems I'm copping out. I'm not overly concerned with the mod. I got it to try out the mod and silicone bottles. I learned what I wanted, felt needed of both. I like the ergonomics of the mod for sure. The big Butt? If gremlins can zap it so easily and it's only got a fault protection switch fuse, ... nah, not the kind of mod for me. I don't see any sign the fuse was shorted out but I might be looking at it incorrectly too.

    In any case I looked it over and could not find reason it bricked. Soldering did seem up to par and attached. She a check out at least as okay as a I can sees it boss, maybe she be a no like to play with me just because she no wanna. I no wanna play with fuses or chips either cos I no wanna. So she a go pee up a rope I say. *sticks out tongue at mod*

    I stalked package deliveries, does that count? Waiting on diy supplies. Ordered a scale from amazon monday, didn't ship out til yesterday. Bastards. Learned a bit of geography, couldn't figure out why a package only moved from kansas to kansas in a single day. Then realized Liberty, KS and KC are like 6 1/2 hours drive apart. Hoping to get everything by the weekend.

    So somehow, I talked my self into getting more flavors. Lol!!! And I rewicked a few rdas, washed out a bunch of failed experiments, still working on a few clone requests, got a few of my own in the hopper that I think will be lovely. And I got some vape mail! A Smok Nord for my travels this month and a few rdas(Vapefly pixies). My vaping empire grows.......

    Finished off the last of the Flamingo flavored juice. I'll damn sure not buy that one again. Opened up a new bottle called Berry Blast. This one tastes much better, although it still has a bit of the leftover juice in the tank that it mixed with. I'll know more after a couple of tank fulls, but at this point it tastes pretty good. This is the first of 4 bottles with the 6mg of nicotine. After I finish these off, I'll drop back down to 3 mg.

    Stopped at the gas station this morning to buy some pods for the MyBlu. Wanted to use it for some stealth office vaping. Ended up unknowingly buying nic salt pods, which didn't exist until recently. I hate nic salt!

    Yesterday: I vaped my little $15 Axiom 80W 2300mAh mod all day while out waiting for buses and thrift shopping. Hardly made a dent in the $5 7ml Tobeco KS tank or the mod's battery :D
