Hi. So, my starter kit arrived today and I'm pretty excited to try it out. I'm 32 years old and have been a regular smoker for...14 or 15 years now. Ugh. Anyways, I have a couple questions, which I can probably search around the forum to find the answers to, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask here.
- if I use a cartomizer on the pass-through, can I unscrew it later and use the same cartomizer on a regular battery?
- if the battery I have (short) is supposed to last 1-2 hours, is that 1-2 hours of use or does it mean 1-2 hours from the time I remove it from the charger? I mean, is the battery in a constant state of discharge?
I think that those are the only questions that come to mind right now. Thanks in advance if you have answers for me. Much appreciated. I'm really, really excited for this to work.
Yes you can switch back and forth between devices and it is vape time (1-2 hours). All batteries discharge very slowly while not in use but would take much more than a week or more if not being used. Good luck and welcome to the family.
Wow, ok, that's great. Thanks so much! Hope to pick up some more info here on the board over time. Thanks again.
Welcome to the forum and to vaping Doc!! Feel free to ask whatever you want. It's nice to have people answer you instead of sifting through all of the many posts. Although we might direct you to a different thread because the original poster said it better. Either way, it's nice to see new people. Best of luck!
Ok, I've been checking out the forum and this place seems pretty cool. Reminds me a lot of a few other forums I go to (non-vapor related).
I'm still a little fuzzy on a few things, so if anybody can help me out with these (again), it would be much appreciated.
-Do I need to hold it at a certain angle so that the liquid inside vaporizes? Will they work upside-down, like astronaut pens?
-I'm still not really understanding the difference between Wow, Cool, Premium, Nobacco...
-I'm using pre-mixed, ready-to-go carts. Do I still need to clean the battery? I'm not sure I fully understand how it gets dirty, but I'm sure I will eventually.
-When drinking hard beverages, would it be helpful to have a stronger liquid (24? 36?). I'm trying to drop analog altogether and I'm worried that if I go out with friends, that's when I would be most likely to switch back.
Ok, well, that's all I can think of for now. I did read over the community guidelines for this place and I want to apologize in advance if I break any of the rules here. Thanks again for any information you can pass my way!
:lol: That is actually one thing I really liked about ecigs in the beginning! You can hold them any way you want! You aren't restricted to holding them with 2 fingers like a regular cig :D Yes, you can hold it upside down. If you had tanks you would run into problems with that, but with cartos it shouldn't hurt anything.
Here's the breakdown:
First off, juice is made from 2 main ingredients (with other things in there like flavor and nic), Vegetable Glycerin (VG) and Propylene Glycol (PG). VG is thicker and produces more vapor. PG is thinner and gives better Throat Hit (TH).
-Wow Vapor Nobacco juice is just the brand name. This brand is called Wow because it has a higher VG content than the Premium juice. So there is WOW more vapor. The juice still has more PG than VG (estimated to be about 70/30, but exact ratio is a trade secret).
-Premium Nobacco juice, again is just a brand name. It has an estimated 80/20 PG/VG ratio, but is also a trade secret.
-Wow cartos are lower resistance, about 2ohms. The lower ohms create WOW more vapor, thus the name. If you buy the prefilled wow cartos then they only come with wow juices in them. But if you get the blank cartos then you can put whatever juice you want in them. I really like to use these on my batts because I get more vapor.
-Cool cartos have a higher resistance, around 3ohms. The more resistance means less vapor. I prefer the cool cartos on the PT or higher voltage devices because the Wow cartos get too hot for my liking. The prefilled cool cartos have Premium juice in them, but if you buy the blank cartos then you can put whatever juice you want in them.
Even if you don't use prefilled cartos you only have to clean the batts if they look dirty. I mean, if you regularly keep them in your pocket and they get lint or random gunk on them I'd say clean them. But if they look fine and are working fine I wouldn't worry about it.
Personally, I need higher nic in certain situations. In the morning I use 30mg juice, but during the day I use 24mg. Some people even drop their nic at night because it is a stimulant and can keep you awake. Some people are less affected by this and so they don't (I don't). I do have strong, high nic juices around when I'm drinking adult beverages! The nic isn't the only thing I need when drinking; I also need a really good TH. This is something you will need to play around with to find what works best for you. But in my personal experience, I would say definitely get something strong for when you drink! If you are looking for more TH the mints/menthols are good for that, but I was a menthol smoker, so I use them all the time anyway.
Let me know if any of that needs to be clarified. Also, if you break any rules one of the admins will clean it up for you ;) Don't worry too much, we all try but sometimes we slip.
Welcome Doc Z sir. You've gotten a lot of great advice thus far. Will add my two cents with your concerns with the adult beverages- You don't have to go up steep (though know many who do, especially when first starting) but be prepared to vape more as you enjoy a few drinks. Be sure to drink plenty of water while doing these activities together. :)
isnt drinking water while drinking adult beverages called cheating though Mr M. :)

Excellent, that was really helpful, Harmony. I think I'm probably going to lean towards the cool ones, since I'd prefer not to exhale a lot of vapor in my apartment when my roommate is around. I'm pretty sure she's more likely to give me a pass to vape indoors if it doesn't resemble analog as much. I also like a good TH, too.
I currently only have Cool Carts T-T (Cowboy - 36s), which I like so far. I ordered some King Kamels (36) the other day, too. I'm planning on going out after work with a few other librarians tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes.
As for the hydration advice...I usually only follow it when it's too late. :)
Doc Z sir know quite a few vapers who paid for the dehydration the next morning in a big way. Hangovers are never fun....
