Howdy all....this has turned into a long post because I'm a noob and have a lot of thoughts and a few questions .....so on another forum for my hobby of Marine Saltwater Aquariums there was a post in the lounge from a guy who smoked 3-4 packs a day and he was now vaping and having no trouble switching. That was a month ago but it stuck int he back of my mind. Last week a friend was over and I suggested we go outside for a smoke. He said sure and he pulled out a Vapor4Life cig with a large tank, battery, etc. I said what the heck is that and he said "vaporizer man...haven't had a smoke in ages!" SO that was it.
On Sunday I came here and ordered a starter kit. Got it Wed and I will admit i can see myself giving up smokes rather easily. I've had it for a day and a half and smoked about 6 real cigs only because the thing was charging plus it took me a while to figure out how to actually get a drag off the thing. I'm a 1 1/2 pack a day habit so this is really a surprise to me and I'm not even trying
As for Vaping....well theres a lot of info and few instructions to be honest.
I have a Titan starter kit with regular battery. Since I've been smoking Camel Lights/Blues for many years I went with Kamel Wow Carts. I admit its not a bad taste. The issue I have with this device is its nowhere near like taking a drag off a real cig. Its like smoking a ultra light with all the holes in the filter.
Where the battery and cart screw together its designed to vent but its too much IMO. If I wrap my finger around that area I can get a real drag off it with impressive vapor and taste. But still...with the auto I have to puff puff puff and then drag to get it going.....and its loud man...I'm sitting here in my living room (yay) and all you hear over the TV is this sucking sound. Nothing like a cig. but my wife likes it better and better yet I don't have to go outside!!!!
So whats the deal? Is this normal?
Since I do like it and its evident 1 battery is not sufficient I ordered a 2nd one today but got the manual version. Seems that if I can preheat the cart then perhaps my drag will be more satisfying rather than sucking my brains out to get a drag ( I actually call it a hit at this point like I'm smoking a freakin bong).
I do like the shorter regular size though so I can pack the spare in the case with some carts.
Again since I think I like it I ordered more carts plus some Wow blanks and some Kamel nobacco juice. I wonder if the juice and blanks come with instructions? On that note...I noticed I could pull the rubber right out of my Kamel Wow cart and see the material and coil in there can I refill these too? Just curious.
As for flavor...at this point if I'm replacing cigs (or analogs as I've seen them called here) then I can't see getting into the fruity flavs for awhile. I like the taste of tobacco thats my deal. So does anyone have opinions on good full flavor tobacco? Seriously these Kamels taste good if I can get a good vapor draw but this designed leak is a serious issue and I know I can't seal it as it needs air intake. If a big tank solves that I'm not too keen on them at this point. I don't want a 7" battery, 2" tank, and drip thing and be smoking a foot long hot dog.....ok that's exaggerating a bit but you get my drift
Anyhow...I'm happy to be part of the vaping world! Thanks!
