They really do work! I stopped smoking by using one of these before too. A few friends of mine did the same.

I was on and off smoking for years.. but I haven't had one for agggeessss now though. So expensive here in the UK to smoke.

Good luck with it, I hope it works out for you!

I'm an ex-smoker, hating all the tobacco companies and their dirty games (which they used to play in the past and probably still do). Good luck, I hope you will be able to stop.

Backwoods Brew Blueberry or Strawberry. Closest I've tasted to actual fruit.

If you want something a little bit more candy flavoured, try any of the OneHitWonder Milkman or Rocketman.

Or if you want to make your own, I can shoot you my Fruit Loops recipe.

I also was able ta quit after well over 40 years of smokin' thanks ta the vapie thingies. I started smokin' (among other bad thingies ) when I was 12. But naow I'm much better.

I have been vaping for over a year now, my collection of Tanks and Mods is huge. I am not saving moiney but well... I do mix my own liquid. So I buy the ingerdients myself and mix them. As flavour I use those offered by a company that usually sells to Ice Cream parlours. They are food grade and in a solution of PG mostly... They do taste great and come in a big variety and they are pretty cheap... curently using the OBS Engine on a Hcigar vt75...

Also, just as a heads up, have water to drink when you use it.

It'll dry the hell out of you and most likely make you cough the first couple times you use it until you get used to it.

I suggest taking 1-2 tiny drags at first before taking normal ones.

Well.. i thought i would report back..
One week since the juice arrived.. and..
tada.. yure has quit smoking completely.. no cigs at all..
me .. nope..

not because i didnt take to vaping..
its because i bought fucking kangertech cunting things to vape with....
yure's one.. not one single problem.. well not really
it leaks a little and it spits a little
but at least it works..
mine.exactly the same model...
First it didnt have all its O rings.. .. 0.o replace those.. then
.. fill up the tank.. and it runs out the fucking air flow holes..
we tried changing the coil.. we tried what some dude on youtube recommended and poked any wires sticking out of the bottom of the coil back in etc
tried to get a refund.. and they said they would only refund half of the price..
so i sucked it up and ordered a new tank..
it sort of worked for a day.. (spitting hot oil into my mouth at even 20w)
the next morning when i got up.. the whole tankload had leaked out the airvents and onto my desk..
what a crap company.. after buying and having problems i looked around at reviews and its hit and miss with them.. and leaks galore.. what a farce..
anyway .. i just wanted to cry.
tomorrow my innokin coolfire 4 and iSub Apex arrive..
maybe at last i shall be able to step into the cigaretteless realm.. hold thumbs for me.

Eku ... Don't give up

Here is my favorite Tank/Atomizer ... Aspire Nautilus Mini with 1.8 ohm coils

The only problem I have ever had with them is when I don't pay attention and run it to empty and burn the cotton.

They work so well I just forget to check the juice level sometimes.

The mini ones hold about 2ml of juice ... the full size ones hold about 4ml or so.

Tried a bunch of other brands (have a junk box full of them) and the Aspire is the only one that just works ... there are probably other good ones but when I found these I just stuck with them.



Again don't give up ... I'll send you some if you need them.

kanger tends to be fiddly and built for thicker juices than are made these days. the fix is to rewick them with tighter/denser wicks (or buy them that way), and run them at a reduced power. so you might be able to rehab it.

if you happen to run into wicks that are too tight/dense poking them a bit with a pin will (most of the time) loosen up a channel for the juice to flow properly... had to do that for a few slightly thicker juices I mixed that wouldn't flow well through dense filler.

different juices tend to have their own sweet spot for power, for instance my current home mix only requires about 10-12w on my eleaf GSAir M even being a 50/50 blend, 20w would turn that juice burnt dust. VG is thicker than PG, create more vapor, but tend to hold less flavor, and different flavors can vary the thickness considerably. also airflow can affect how well a juice works.

my current method for 'tuning' is to get the wick material matched to how thick the juice is (good flow rate without flooding), then play around with airflow and power from there. thicker juices tend to require less airflow (providing more resistance), and lower power, compared to thinner... slightly counter intuitive but that's my experience

That Innokin setup should be an excellent beginning combo Eku. Good luck !

I do prefer Innokin products to Kangertech and Joyetech.
Haven't tried the Apex tank yet, but did try iSub tank by them...it was too airy and not top fill...so moved on from that...but the Coolfire IV is a pretty good device.

Well, 3 hours and counting and no ciggie..
The tank is really nice, although it makes the juice taste peppery compared to the kangertech that just delivered massive sweetness (and hot oil)
It does not get at all hot, and even the vape is cooler and feels more like ciggie smoke than the KT one.

I actually got the Apex tank because of watching Victor's review of it.. the third time he said omnomnom during the video, I was sold.

I have it 22W and making about the same amount of vapour as I would smoking a ciggie.. no massive clouds.. but I am not coughing constantly like I was with the Kangertech..

Will report back as days go by...

Over 3 years free of tobacco here. Just because it didn't work for you, don't assume it doesn't work at all.

Ok after 3 years of using Provari V2s and Minis I think I need to consider upping my game. For reasons I don't want box mods or mechanical mods. What I DO want is a tube mod that fits nice in my hand or pocket, and I'm pretty sure I want to get into rebuildable attys, but not drip. Oh and separate batteries, like 18650's. I have been recommended things like ehpro 101 or cigreen titan but THE most highly regarded seems to be the Dicodes - which I am now lusting after.

So then the question is between the Dicodes 2395 or the 2395T - what is the advantage to telescoping?

And what the heck should I use for a tank / atty on this? I feel like such a nub again. I make my own max VG 3 mg nic e-liquid, if it matters.

When I'm leaving the house I use the Wismec Vicino. Very simple and reliable and holds one 18650 battery. I replaced the tank that came with it with an Aspire Cleito.
It's the perfect combo for me. The battery lasts through a whole day and the Cleito makes some nice smooth clouds with the 0.4 coils.

I'm loving my new tiny Eleaf iCare after backsliding somewhat after two years of barely smoking & vaping furiously. Issues I have over here in Asia include supplies, since the gov. is struggling to regulate an industry that's already huge here, closely followed by cost. This device cost me about USD 13.5, so its affordable, plus we make our own juices to cut costs.


I'd urge anyone with similar issues to mine, just starting out, or needing something easy, discreet & ready to go in no time at all to try one of these.
One aspect I particularly like is the absence of an on and off switch (having broken a few of these in my time) the coil heats when activated by the air pressure from taking a pull on it.
What I don't like is that one drop & its dead, as the glass inside breaks.
Later on today I'll be searching for a small but sturdy carrying pouch.
Doesn't appear to leak - bonus!
