For the longest time now V4L has exclusively used the 808 connection with all their branded products, the only exceptions being the OEM kits from a few years ago and a few mods they no longer carry. That era has reached its end though. Around June of 2013 Smilin sir announced on ECF he was working on a line of 510 personal vaporizers for V4L. While they haven’t been officially released yet, I figured it was a good time to delve into the differences between the two connections.

Today, the Chicago City Council as a whole voted on the proposed ecigarette ban. It passed 45 to 4. The four Alderman that voted against the ban were Roderick Sawyer, Ray Colon, Nicholas Sposato, and Brendan Reilly. Chicago is set to be the first major US city to ban vaping in restaurants, bars, and other indoor places. The ban will go into effect in 30 days. As soon as we get the exact wording of the ordinance and more info, we’ll share it!
Vicki testifying against the ordinance
Today, the Chicago City Council Joint Committee on Finance and Committee on Health and Environmental Protection passed an ordinance regulating e-cigs. The ordinance amending Chapters 4-64 and 7-32 of the Municipal Code of Chicago regulates ecigs like tobacco cigarettes on sale, distribution and use.
The Chicago City Council is meeting for a second time likely to discuss a proposed ordinance banning e-cigs wherever smoking is prohibited. The meeting is this coming Monday, January 13, at 11:30am. We are encouraging all Chicago vapers to call and email their Alderman, to let them know why they should not pass the ordinance. It would also be extremely helpful to attend the meeting and speak about your experience with e-cigarettes.
This is a guest blog post by Morandir. About November of last year the V4L forum started having a lot of loading issues (not to mention other problems). By December it became almost impossible to post from a computer due to all the lag, and it only got worse from there. On the 19th of that month though everything changed. The new head of the IT department at V4L upgraded the forum software and now it’s useable once again.
