Hi All. I have been lurking on this forum since it's inception so I might as well into myself to ya all! My name is Karin (aka Stepmor99) and I have been a faithful Vapor4Life user since June 2011. I was a 1.5 PAD analog user for 25+ years until I discovered vaping 55 weeks ago (but who's counting, right?). I am proud to say that I have not had an analog since ! Everyone who knows me is still dumbfounded by my change since I was probably the last one they would have expected to expel those darn analogs from my life but I did and I have no intention of turning back!
I started my vaping journey with a few competitors products but researched the ECF forum and there is where I found Vapor4Life. I have not strayed since because of the products and the nic juice flavors offered. Vapor4Life is a wonderful find for me - it may have extended my life (and I hope "Morandir Sir" does not need to edit that statement). I tell anyone that will listen about Vapor4Life and have many converts under my belt and I will continue my quest to try to rid analogs from my loved ones lives!
A big thank you to all of you on this forum for all of the help and support that you have unwittingly provided to me over the last six months on this forum. A big grateful "shout out" especially to Via, Morandir, Snowdragon, KevN, and LadyStrick9 for the information and videos that you have provided to me and the rest of the Vapor4Life family since this forum was started. I do not consider my day complete if I do not have a virtual visit with you and the rest of my friends here. Now if I could only get my husband to consider a vacation to the Smokeless Lounge in IL as one of our "bucket list" trips.........
I have one question - what is the story with Egos? I have a great selection of carts, tanks, every battery Vapor4Life offers, chargers, pass-thrus, etc. but I am on the fence about purchasing an Ego. What is the benefit over titan batteries - is the vapor production better? And the ego carts - are they like tanks where you have to replace the inner cartomizer once they have been spent? Needless to say, the ego has me stumped.
Welcome Stepmor99! Glad you joined! I am a newbie too, so will wait for the experienced vapers to come and comment on the Ego ~ KevN? I can say that they do have a longer battery life than the "stick" batteries, but I love those too. Good luck to you and take care! :)
Hi Stepmor99 and welcome to the forum (or at least from your "lurking" LOL). I thought your name looked familiar, but I guess not. Either way...you do have an impressive accomplishment with your years of analog use. WTG for kicking THAT!
I usually post some links for new members or send them in a PM, but I don't think you'll be needing them. You probably know more than me by now.
Don't hesitate to ask, however. And, thanks for the compliment, BTW. That was nice to hear :)
Hi Stepmor99! Glad you aren't just "lurking" anymore! I just ordered the eGo on saturday. Figured what the heck and why not give it a try. I love my titan XLs and I don't think I'll be putting them in a drawer anytime soon. Guess we'll see what happens.
Hello everyone! My name is Shannon and I am pretty new to vaping. Got my starter kit a month ago and haven't smoked an analog since (nor do I want to!). I started with another brand but recently switched to Vapor4Life and wow! I love it. I got a chance to visit the smokeless lounge and the service was amazing and the customers were so friendly! I was so impressed with everything Vapor4Life and started lurking the forums and everyone seems so friendly and knowledgable - definitely not intimidating for a n00bie like me! :)
So I wanted to say hello and I look forward to getting to know the community! :)
I love that you have admitted to lurking! That's awesome lol
I'm curious about the ego too! so I just ordered one this weekend too! LOL... I'll make a mental note to let ya know what I think of it. Can't wait to get it. From what I understand Vapor4Life says the battery is sealed and the life of the ego is longer! Yay!
And Congrats to you .... 55 weeks! That's amazing! I am new ....3 weeks and 3 days today!
Well shoot, I say go ahead order the ego! Don't think you will have anything to lose!
Let us know!
I guess it didn't take much convincing....I ordered myself an Ego tonight! What can I say.... I am a sucker for anything new to do with vaping!!

I have to also say, congrats on your decision to get the eGo. I am a great believer in them (giving a bow to our beloved Via). It was the best treat that I gave myself once I found the wonderful world of vaping. I was getting frustrated with 5 batteries constantly on the charger and trying to remember to fill cartos every night (as I feel in love with the USA juice, so therefore I don't use a lot of the prefilled anymore).
The wonderful things to me about the eGo (and many others will also say this about tanks) is:
1. Great Vapor Production
2. Longer Battery Life
3. Fewer Carto Refills (the Mego carts come with the eGo)
4. Better taste from Liquids than filling blanks (at least to me)
5. Better Vapor Production
6. Better Vapor Production
7. I think you get my point
The downside for me, is that they are big and look like a cigar. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my eGo, but keep it for use at home or in the car as I don't like to draw attention to myself (it is just a personal thing). Others are completely comfortable with it in public.
Anyway, what I really am trying to say is WELCOME and you will love your new eGo.
Welcome shannonface! We are all very jealous of your ability to be able to visit the smokeless lounge. You cerrtainly have a great advantage over us.

I hope you will join us here as the love and support really makes the experience that much better!
