    Can't really add anything at this point but you've gone to my point about the mod. I don't think it would be a good idea either and I'm thinking the guys at that shop would tell him the same. Other than that, I don't have anything to add tbh. Caution is always best when playing with this kind of thing IMO.

    Yeah, will do. I’m in no hurry as I’ve got the next couple of month or more sorted anyhow, but I’m always up for a new hobby. I’ll be keen to try a few setups before I make a decision.

    That KingVapeALot is a tosser. I have bought some gear off him, but I wouldn’t support his business going forward.

    Bought my first mod kit from Sam’s, so will be happy to go back. I’ll be heading to Brisbane weekly pretty soon with the start of the semester.

    Yeah, I will definitely buy a new mod purposely for RTA/RDA. The battery quality makes a lot of sense, as does a good charger. I only use Eneloop Pro (Black) batteries in my house. Expensive fuckers. Would they be okay?

    No. You will be playing with 18650. I would recommend using either of the two suggested above.

  3. It should also be pointed out. You must select a battery that is verified for vaping. Do not buy cheap batteries from unknown suppliers that you don't trust. If you get the amps wrong, you risk a battery failure. It is also vital that you check the ohms and voltages of the coil too, to make sure you're not pushing the battery beyond it's limits.

    Thanks fellas! Really appreciate the info. I’ll definitely go into Sam’s and have a chat.
     
  5. Polar died today and my local shop didn't have a Vaporesso Luxe, so I've ended up with a Smoant NaBoo kit. I like it, tank is good, but I see me going back to my Cascade tank.

    I wish I took note of when I quit, but it was around middle to end of November last year. Maybe early December. Still off the cancer sticks.

    My skin looks the best it has in maybe 10 years, no shadows under the eyes, and I don’t cough any more.

    Vape-wise, I’m down to 6mg and dropping slowly. No hurry because it costs so little compared to smoking, money and health-wise.

    Best thing I’ve ever done.

    Really keen to buy a good mod now though.

    As I’m working in Brisbane again as of this week (staying at an Airbnb), i’ll be going to Sam’s smokes tomorrow.

    What mod’s should I be asking about?

  8. Honestly, I'd just go with what they suggest. Once you get to a certain point, it becomes about features. I'd keep it basic personally. I'm well out of the loop unfortunately, I don't watch any vape videos anymore and I'm actually at the point of giving it away. Went 2 weeks in Japan with zero nicotine and didn't miss it at all. Since being back I haven't even bothered to refill the tanks that I emptied prior to leaving, I just have the dripper which I've barely touched.

    Edit: Vaporesso seems to be a solid brand these days

  9. Just out of curiosity mate, how long have/had you been vaping for?
     
  10. Not too sure tbh but it's an easy 5 years I'd say. I could have and should have given it up a while ago but the reality is, I enjoy it. I no longer need it though.....I know for a fact that I wouldn't go buy some smokes.
     
  11. Only 4 for me in March, so less than that.

    Didn’t end up going to Sam’s Smokes. Might do it next week. The pen vape that I have (MTL) doesn’t do it for me anymore, but it’s served its purpose, well and truly. I’ll never pick up another cigarette, and I know this because I’ve been out in the beer garden with mates and they’ve asked me to hold their ciggi while they nip off to the loo. I looked at it, and put it down.

    So next week I’ll look for a second MTL mod, most likely a quality Vaporesso. Seems the go.

    Btw, the Vaporesso ceramic coils are once again my go-to. The fact they run at 25-35W, extending battery life to days rather than hours, and last for three weeks, how do you beat that?
     
  15. Spare batteries.

    ?
     
  17. That's how you beat the lower battery life of the cotton coils ;-)

    Obviously my batteries aren’t interchangeable, but I guess Vaporesso mods have interchangeable batteries?

    Moreso the lifespan of the coils is what I love. Sometimes I only get a few days out of Vaporesso 2/4/6/8 core coils. Ceramics are more reliable it seems
