My Most Horrific Vape Experiences [Part Two]

Vape Experiences 1

Carrying on from the horrific vape experiences I shared yesterday, I have another little horror story that I wasn’t really sure whether or not to share. Maybe I’m being a bit ‘snowflakey’ in this one? Perhaps I’m a bit oversensitive? You know what I’m like … I do like to overreact a bit. But this story? Well, it happened. And it’s Halloween. So, I’m tellin’ it.  I’ve seen a quote and I think it’s very apt for right now: If you wanted me to write more warmly about you, maybe you should have treated me better? That Time I Went ...

My Most Horrific Vape Experiences [Part One]

Horrific Vape Experiences 6

It’s getting close to Halloween. My favourite time of year. Apart from when the trick or treaters ring my doorbell hoping to get a fistful of my candy, obviously, but I’ve learned to take the batteries out of the indoor part of my doorbell now. Sod the kids. I want the candy.  🎃🎃🎃 Seeing as it’s the time of year to talk about all things horrifying, I decided that it might be fun to share some of my most horrific vape experiences. It’s been close to eight years since I first made the switch, and I’ve used my fair share ... Read More »

19 Mistakes New Vapers Make

Mistakes New Vapers Make 9

I know what the title says, but this [very long] blog post is mostly based on all of the mistakes *I* made as a vaper, over the years. And mistakes my friends made. And my Nan. A couple of boyfriends. Some non-friends …  We’ve all made mistakes, some of which have actually prevented us from becoming vapers at all. Not me, obviously. I’m puffing away as we speak. I can barely see the screen as I type.  (There are affiliate links in this review, meaning, at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you click & ... Read More »

Jac Vapour Turbo S-Coils: Worth the Hype?

Jac Vapour Turbo S-Coils 4

Sup! How’s life? I’m all gravy over here, just vaping and working away as always. And not looking forward to the cold and snowy winter we’re apparently about to get. I always get so excited about the prospect of snow, until the damn stuff actually arrives and then I realise that snow does indeed come with freezing temperatures. Autumn is alright. (Or ‘fall’ if you’re American.) I quite like spring, too. Not too hot. Not too cold. Lots of nice things to look at. Snow isn’t nice to look at it. Not after the white stuff has gone and you’re ...

What is Mouth-to-Lung Vaping?

What is Mouth-to-Lung Vaping 8

(There are affiliate links in this review, meaning, at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you click & make any purchases. Please see Disclaimer for more details.)   I don’t think enough people are made aware of a VERY important point when they first look at vaping to quit smoking … There are TWO very different ‘types’ or styles of vaping.  One of them is mouth-to-lung vaping, or MTL/M2L.  The other is sub-ohm vaping, also known as DTL/D2L or direct-to-lung.  The two types of vaping [usually] require different eliquid, a different coil, and/or a different ...

Where Can I Find 0% Nicotine Pods?

0% Nicotine Pods 7

I was asked a little question the other day, on Facebook, and I figured it was actually a REALLY good question so I’d make a blog post out of it. “Where can I find 0% nicotine pods?” In fact, that wasn’t the question. Let me give you the whole story … (There are affiliate links in this review, meaning, at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you click & make any purchases.

Eliquid: What Does Short Fill Mean?

What Does Short Fill Mean? 1

Someone asked me a question on Facebook the other day — “What does short fill mean?” It’s a good question. I had to Google it a while back, and I figured other people would probably ask the same question. So … why not write a blog all about it? Smart, right? I know. I’m taking a bow as we speak. What Are Short Fill Eliquids? Short fill eliquids are eliquid bottles that are not quite full. No, the company hasn’t ripped you off a bit. They’re meant to be like that. It was someone’s genius idea to get around the ... Read More »

8 Tips to Make Your Coils Last Longer

Tips to Make Your Coils Last Longer 6

There are a number of reasons why you’d want to make your coils last longer. For a start, the more you use, the more you need to buy, and that can bump up the cost of your vaping habit. In my experience, coils can last very different lengths of time, depending on what kind of coils you’re using, what brand it is, what tank it’s in, what liquid you’re using, and more factors besides. Certain types of liquids are renowned for burning through coils much quicker than you’d expect, and there are certain coils (and brands of coil) that also ... Read More »

The Importance of Priming Your Coil

The Importance of Priming Your Coil 1

Today, I would like to talk about the importance of priming your coil. Why? Because a few weeks ago, due to my own damn incompetence and impatience, I wasted a whole coil. Annoying.  The tank was the Innokin Scion tank. I was about to switch one 0.5 ohm Kanthal BVC coil for another, changing it for the first time ever, in fact. My first ever ‘grown up’ tank, I was loving the 70 – 110-watt range and I’m actually BEYOND disappointed that this tank isn’t TPD compatible. In fact, I don’t care that much. I’ll keep huntin’ out places to ... Read More »

Understanding E-Liquid: Why PG & VG Matters

Why PG & VG Matters 3

Getting the right mixture of VG and PG in your eliquid is just as important as finding the right box mod, the right tank, or the right all-in-one device (also known as AIO). I once met a new vaper who was trying to use MTL (mouth-to-lung) e-liquid in a sub ohm device (the Aspire Plato) with a sub ohm coil. Obviously, I knew this wouldn’t work for him. Being a new vaper, he didn’t know what the right kind of eliquid was, and he was about to give up and start smoking again until I came onto the scene and ... Read More »
