Been hooked on the analogs for 40 years and the negative effects prompted me to do something about it.
I received my kit 2 days ago and thus far am impressed. I had tried a stick e-cig from a different company a few years ago and was frustrated by the short battery life and the carts burning out so I went back to analogs, actually making my own with a good machine and natural tobacco. The idea was there is less chemicals than what the evil tobacco companies add to store bought cigs. I've read where those additives, besides affecting flavor also assist in your nicotine receptors more readily absorb the nicotine. That may be true, as I found myself having to smoke more to get my fix, kinda like what happens when you switch to the so called "light" cigs.
I ordered my juice in 24 ml and based on a lot of the comments in the forum, fully expected to be burning up a 6 ml tank a day. To my surprise it's been more like 1 ml and I've been checking my batteries on a multimeter and have yet to get one much below 4v after a full day of vaping. A very nice experience compared to the other brand stick variety I had a few years ago.
So far I have only one minor annoyance and maybe I'm doing something wrong, but first thing in the morning the vapor is irritating to the point it makes me cough, even with small hits. After hitting it for a half hour things seem to smooth out. I store everything horizontal overnight but it seems the carts get a bit oversaturated while idle? Is that the possible cause? It doesn't seem to matter which juice. I have Traditional Wow Tobacco, Coffee, and Bandit Berry and get same thing with all three on initial use after the tanks sit idle for awhile. OMG All Day 6 ml tanks and 1.5 DC carts if that makes any difference.
I just ordered the 8 tank deal and 4 more flavor juices, extra carts and drip tip so no turning back now
