This is a guest post written by Morandir835, an e-cig enthusiast, admin on the Vapor4Life forum, and a regular on their ECF sub forum.
I’m quickly approaching my two-year mark of being a vaper. One thing you’ll realize after you’ve been vaping a while is you build up a large amount of personal vaporizers and items you either used once and didn’t like, or have simply moved on from. This applies especially to people who have moved up to mods. Instead of just letting them become dust gatherers there’s actually a few things you can do with them.
On both the V4L forum and ECF there are swap threads where you can trade juices or prefilled cartos that weren’t your taste or strength. You can also trade hardware that still works if you so chose. You can very easily do the same through Facebook or any other social media. Just remember V4L is not responsible for making sure both sides complete the trade.
This can be done on ECF after you’ve completed their verification process for the classifieds, but afterwards you can sell any of your no longer being used but working hardware there. This is not allowed through the V4L forum, but again what you do through your own social media outlet is your decision.
Pay It Forward (PIF)
The most satisfying choice of them all. Paying it forward is simple, give the items you’re no longer using to someone in need. There are many ways you can do this, whether it’s to a friend or family member in real life, through the ECF or V4L Forum, Facebook, Twitter, etc. You can simply offer them up, do a contest, the possibilities are endless. I decided to do some winter cleaning this year. I have a lot of mods that I’ve collected over the past year for testing purposes and now they are simply collecting dust on the shelf. What better way to say thank you to all the great people of the forum than to pass along a mod to a few of them? By paying it forward you give someone else chance to either start vaping who financial reasons may be worried about getting a starter kit, or you can give someone a chance to own a mod they couldn’t buy on their own that you no longer use. What’s more rewarding than that?
Please share this article with your vaper friends. They’ll be glad to know what to do with their old supplies!
