Any suggestions and such would be great thanks in advance
I am no professional but will try to do the best I can to answer your questions... So please bear with me.
Throat hit is that feeling you get in the back of your throat when you hit a string cigarette or hot box a weaker cigarette.
The ratios for the juices do lots of things.
Larger PG ratios will give you more of a sharp/strong throat hit. They are thinner and will not clog up your tanks/coil heads as much as a juice with
more VG does.
Larger VG ratios will give you tons more vapor. When you exhale you will see much more of a "cloud" than you would with PG. It usually carries more
flavor and sweetens the liquid. It's throat hit is generally milder and smoother.
Thats why most people use a mixture of both. Most places you can order from allow you to pick the mixture you are wanting. My choice is usually 90
PG/10 VG. But I will take a 70 PG/30 VG if that is the only thing the company carries or what they advertise as being the best mix for their
A mod is the exact same thing you have in your halo battery, except you can push more amps and wattage thereby changing the entire flavor of your
juice. They are usually bulkier, and you can buy batteries that last for days and days. I have never purchased one and do not think I ever will. My
set up works great for under half the cost. There is much more maintenance that goes into having a mod as well and a lot of folks either really love
it or really hate it.
After you've been vaping for a long while, you may find you want to try one (because some of them are spectacular to look at) and there's nothing
wrong with that. I don't recommend anyone starting out with one though because you may well get discouraged enough to not bother anymore.
I also understand what you mean by some folks in the vaping community. A lot of them are snobs and it doesn't take long to realize that. After a few
years of doing it, they tend to forget how insane it is to make a decision these days about anything when you are new. I spent a ton of money that I
didn't have to because everyone always thinks the new thing is the end all be all of awesomeness. I don't do that anymore.
I know of one company that sells 1ml bottles right off the top of my head... www.zeusejuice.com...
I have ordered from them some grape candy flavor and while it was good, it did not have enough flavor for me.
I am sure there are others, but I will dig around a bit and see if I can find some for you. It definitely sucks to spend a lot of money and hate every
juice out of the order. The key to quitting is finding what is called your "All Day Vape". That's the vape that you will smoke 99.9999% of the time
and it took me about 6 months to find one myself.
Like I said, I will look around for you and post again if I find anything of interest. If I can answer anything else, please just ask. I will do my

Wow i didn't know that, could you possibly let me know where you got yours or what type because just looking it up on google i end up getting really
confused by it all and give up! Yes the kick to the back of the throat is what im looking for in vaping, glad you understand shisha pens are
basically the same as Ecigs i think but the ones i have are disposable, from what i have read they have a liquid cartridge thing and some contain
nicotine some don't , i do like shisha though the pens are just a vaporizing version.
Im thinking i might skip the patches this time because its not like i have successfully stayed smoke free with that method in the past, and i
accidentally fell asleep with one on the last time i had one on and had the strangest vivid dreams EVER so it put me off them! I smoke 8mg cigarettes
about 15 a day sometimes more but i think i would do better on the lower dose i am easilly nauseated! But then i don't want it to be too low and fail!
I am feeling positive though! Yep i am trully over it its such a disgusting habit and its such a waste of money $22.50 for a packet of 25 cigarettes
here where i live its pathetic! thanks so much for the info your awesome!
Holy crap at the high prices batman!! Wow. I thought it was bad here.
For a stronger throat hit it is just as much about the equipment than it is about the juice, but it does take both to work well.
I use fairly inexpensive equipment. But started off with pretty cheap stuff so I was just as disappointed as you. I feel your pain.
I use a variable voltage battery. You can find these through doing a google search as I don't want to seem like I am advertising for anyone. I prefer
the Innokin itaste VV express kit (googling that will get you results to stores that carry them so you can compare prices if you're interested), and
the Innokin clk 1280 express kit. Both of these will allow you to adjust your setting on watts and amps which will in turn change your entire vaping
Some juices taste better with low wattage and amps. Some juices can really dazzle you when those are turned up to burn hotter.
Your choice of juice will also matter. Some juices will not have a throat hit worth 2 cents regardless of how much power you put to them. They just
won't. Picking a juice with a higher PG content will help the throat hit a lot.
The best fruity flavor, with the best throat hit I have ever had is here... www.apolloecigs.com...
This has been my go to liquid for a solid year. Nothing else I have tried has compared to this. It tastes exactly like grape jolly ranchers and hits
like a horse kicking you in the back of the throat.
The only thing that has knocked this off it's perch was the juice I mentioned in the OP. You could probably go with 6 mcg on your nicotine as you get
nauseated often from the 8 mcg you smoke. The next highest would probably be 12 on most vendors. It's important to not go overboard because that does
increase your failure risk. You can always take an extra hot if you need it, but you can't take out the nicotine after you've ordered it.
I hope that helps somewhat. I'm just a vaper myself and can only attest to what has worked for me and share what I have learned. Ask as many questions
as you want and I will try my best to get back to you about it. I'm really hoping more folks will come in and offer their advice on occasion and what
worked for them.
You can do it. You just have to believe in yourself and go for it!

I'm excited for you! I do hope you share your experience when you get your new equipment. Waiting for vape mail is tedious at best. I'm always like a
kid at Christmas when I have new stuff coming in. I also try to stick to all USA products and I WILL absolutely NOT buy ejuice from anywhere but USA.
We do have some standards where they do not. When I first started I tried some of them and foul doesn't even begin to cover it. Seriously.
Stroll on back when you get your new setup going. It's always nice to hear a review personally than just be told it's good...but it now.
Stick with it mate! You can kick it!
