#I hope they never add alcoholic or cocktail recipes (minus the alcohol ofc) Baileys Irish cream liqueur anyone? sour and brown sugar sweet Mojito's?
They already make a TON of flavors. Quite a few alcohol drink flavors. Looking at the bottles you have I'm wondering what juice companies you're
using. There should be no issue saying that on ATS. Good quality juice makes an enormous difference in flavor, you may enjoy trying some of the
better brands out there, some are fairly inexpensive. I'm a big fan of cereal flavored juice, some are astonishingly close to slurping up the milk
left in the bowl. I also love custards, even though I'm aware there are some potential health risks. I freaking love Sugar Bear (now Sugar Drizzle)
by Cuttwood an obscene amount.
I just got into DIY and think it's the way to go. You save a ridiculous amount of money and can tailor the juice. There are a ton of clone
instructions on the internet so you can make a $30/30ml bottle for a couple bucks. All the companies use the same stuff you can get for use in DIY,
and the markup is insane. Companies like Charlie Noble, Suicide Bunny, Cuttwood etc. that are well established and have good flavor profiles are
charging a ridiculous amount, and you can replicate the flavor and quality and KNOW where the ingredients were sourced for far less money. It's also
I'm personally not a fan of the pen style vapes for the most part. I have an eGo One mini in the off chance I'm somewhere that a mod may be too much,
but they just don't offer the same experience. The only time I vape under 50 watts is when I'm using a Kayfun V4 or a nickel build for temp control.
Just not quite satisfied with the >1 ohm stuff unless I'm using the Kayfuns or Squape.
I don't knock anyone that's satisfied with the pen vapes (SO much cheaper and less of a pain), but I don't think many people would stick with them if
they tried higher wattage, a decent tank (the mid to high end are amazing) or temp control. Temperature control is just awesome, you dial in the
temperature you want the vapor, and it stays that way. They're a bit of a pain to build, but the pre-made coils are fairly inexpensive and I've found
they work very well. When I'm feeling lazy I run an Aspire Triton tank with nickel coils or the .3 ohm coils. I like to set the temp just under 500
F, and when I'm running the .3 coils I usually set the wattage around 70.
Top fill, really good adjustable airflow, nice flavor, only cons are that it's hard to clean and kinda big. The rebuildable section is sold
separately, and works pretty darn well though I've only tried it with kanthal. It's a little different than most rebuildable decks, it's not really a
deck, more a rebuildable coil.
I like using RDAs when I'm home, and my favorite so far is the Marquis. I've owned quite a few RDAs, but this one gives me the best flavor, it's easy
to build, and I just think it's neat. It's on the more expensive side at around $100, but well worth it. The flavor is outstanding, it doesn't leak
unless you over drip, and the build posts really make it easy to set up!
If this hadn't become a bit of a hobby, I would probably be picking up the pioneer4you D2 mod, a kangertech subtank mini, a Royal Hunter dripping
atomizer and a Triton. You can basically do everything with that set up, and it's still very small/pocketable. 75 Watts, good temp control, and runs
on an 18650.
Since it has become a bit of a hobby (I feel like hobby is the wrong word, like calling video games e-sports) I have got some pretty fun stuff. It
was expensive, but I was spending a TON on cigs, at least $15 a day so it's justified in my mind from a price and health perspective. That, and I
think it's kinda fun.
Favorites right now in no particular order (all authentic but from what I hear the clones are very close in quality and far cheaper):
-Favorite mods right now are the two SX Mini M class, the Ragnarok mech mod and the Vapor Shark DNA 200 I just got. I'll throw in the iPV 3 Li even
though it feels a little junky compared to the others in the hand because the thing is bullet proof and battery life is crazy, it can be had for a
reasonable price and it looks good.
SX Mini. It's very obvious this thing is incredibly well designed when you hold it and use the buttons. It's ruined me for most other mods, and I
bought 2. Expensive (and right now I wouldn't buy another, since new chipsets are coming). The chipset is amazing, having 5 presets is awesome,
having the ability to change the ramp up power to the coil made me dislike other mods. The buttons and feel are just something else. It's a mass
produced high end mod. You don't have to get on a wait list for it, and instead of $500 it's $200 (I got sneaky and paid way less).
Vapor Shark DNA 200. I just got this guy last week. It's insane. The chipset in this thing is amazing. You can program so many different variables
into it, it has 8 pre-sets (and that includes settings for different types of wire) you can adjust how the coil will heat, adjust how much power is
put in and when after pressing the fire button (make it heat up really fast or gradually in any increment you want) program your own messages and
images into it for each pre set, it's made of aluminum and very light, easy to swap batteries, goes up to 200 Watts, knows the ambient temperature,
you can set the lighting so it's bright or dim (and that can also be based on whatever profile 1-8 you use) and also when in the cycle the lighting is
bright, and even customize the left half of the screen to give info. The buttons are very nice, actually on par with the SX Mini though different,
and it's obviously quality when you hold it.
Ragnarok mod. Love this thing. It looks sleek with any RDA I put on top, it's beautifully machined and the button is smooth. It's just a metal
tube, but its so much better than just a metal tube. My girlfriend got this one for me, and that makes it even more special. It's timeless, it's
incredibly solid, there are no parts that will need replacing.
-Favorite rebuildable tank atomizers are the Kayfun V4, Squape R, and Kayfun Lite+.
Kayfun V4. This is a rather expensive tank if you buy authentic. The flavor is amazing, the craftsmanship is only equaled by a very few
manufacturers, and the design and machining are just awesome. You don't have to drain your tank to access the build deck. You can fill it without
unscrewing it from your mod. The threads and machining are perfect (a little tight, I've had to put it in the freezer to get it apart). The number
of parts are a little intimidating!
-Favorite tanks that use prebuilt coils are the Herakles by Sense and Triton by Aspire.
-Favorite drippers are the Marquis, Vector (doesn't get enough love, it's awesome!), Tugboat and no one believes me but the Mutation X V4.
-Favorite juice companies are Cuttwood, Suicide Bunny, Cloud Alchemist, Stratomyst, Vape Wild, Lost Art, Vapor Shark has a few I actually dig, Cosmic
Fog (kryptonite is awesome). For DIY Nude Nicotine, and I tend to Google when I want a certain flavor.
