    Just a fun little poll to see where everyone is at on their cloud chasing mission.

    I have yet to learn how to build my own coils and tanks, however, I`m quite happy with my replaceable coils, as they are half the price of a pack of cigarettes at my location and last me about 3-4 days, depending on how much I vape. But I usually vape a lot. :D

    Oh man yea the replaceable coils are very nice and convenient as well. I ended up buying my first rebuildable after watching this video and realizing that rebuilding these little coils can't be any more difficult than rebuilding an RBA dripper or tank like the Smok RSST.



    I actually just gave my son one of my old vamo mods, a tank, batteries, and a charger with a bunch of spare coils to get him started. I doubt it will be long before he is asking me to teach him how to rebuild a tank like mine lol.

    That`s some awesome info in that video. Being able to rebuild your coils with cheap materials might save me a lot of cash on the long run. Even if replaceables are cheap, it adds up. I will definitely give it a shot and try to learn something along the way. :D

    :) definitely understand that. The initial investment is a bit steep even for a lower end set up but once you get the core items, you then just have to buy juice, replacement tanks if they are disposable or coils if you get a replaceable coil tank, and maybe new batteries every 6 months to a year or more (depending on what batteries you buy).

    Here are a few links to some components I recently gave my son to help him stop coming and he loves it.

    The body
    Electronic Cigarette | E Cigarette | myvaporstore

    Charger
    TrustFire Multifunctional Charger

    Batteries (buy at least two)
    Electronic Cigarette | E Cigarette | myvaporstore

    A good starter tank
    Innokin iClear 30B 'Bottom Coil' Tank Clearomizer

    The replacement coils that you need for the tank (buy the 1.5 ohm ones for a better hit but bear in mind you need to set the vamo 2 to a lower volt setting, such as 4.2-4.6 ish. These usually last for a couple weeks but i replace mine once a week because they hit harder when they are fresh but thats just my preference.
    Atomizer Head for Innokin iClear 30B 'Bottom Coil'


    Some of my original juices that I blened were

    East Coast Tobacco
    East Coast Tobacco E Juice Baker Vapor
    50/50 pg vg blend 12 mg nicotine

    mixed 50/50 with
    Extreme Ice
    Extreme Ice E Juice Baker Vapor

    It seems like a lot but in the end you save a lot compared to paying for all those disposables and you are able to use safer batteries since they are replaceable and not part of the ecig itself.

    Well, as I have said before, I'm looking foward to buying a vaper. I really want to quit smoking, and my friend has borrowed me his e-cig for the past month. I'm buying one when Easter is over.

    I'm using the disposable kind by blu, as well as the rechargeable kit. Both were given to me by a friend and I love them both! I'm looking forward to upgrading in the near future, seeing as my birthday is coming up. E-cigs are great and I really like my experience with them so far.

    I am currently using a tank. I really like the piece that I have. I never wanted anything super fancy. I like to keep my things very simple and only go as far as I need to. I'm content having a super simple piece that allows me to do what I need to do. :)

    I'm using a tank. Why? It's easy to use, looks simple yet good and is very practical. I love it, and it's one of the best deals I've ever done.

    I also really love the tanks. My friend has been trying to convince me otherwise with the cotton, wire, etc. It just sounds like too much of a hassle to me. :/

    My vaping has turned into a serious habit. It started out as something to get off the cigs, and now it's a fun hobby of mine. I rebuild coils sometimes, but only if I'm in the mood for it. I'd much rather just fill my vivi nova and screw it on. I still jump around from companies finding flavors that I must have, thinking I will settle, and then something else catches my eye. I'm currently debating the purchase of a DNA30 so that I can rebuild sub-ohm coils and still have the protection that mechs don't have.
