We’ve heard all the horror stories about trying to travel with your e cig gear. Security agents mistaking mech mods as pipe bombs, VV devices as illegal drug paraphernalia, issues with spare batteries, foreign bans on electronic cigarettes, etc. The list goes on and traveling with devices is a complete headache. Make sure you’re prepared! Nothing is more painful than having to throw away all of your gear in the trash at an airport because someone mistakes your devices for something else. Read this info and educate yourself so you […]

The SMY 35 is the newest VW box mod that is very similar to the iStick. It supports 1-10 volts and goes up to 35 watts and is a very compact and small form factor. At first glance, it appears to be an iStick and has many of the features and functionality that an iStick has except this goes all the way to 35 watts. It’s a fairly small mod too that fits into pockets well at 4 inches high and 1 inch across. That’s one of the best features […]

With so many different atomizers, builds, guide, tutorials, and frankly other people’s opinions floating around out there, many people are unsure of how many coils they want in their mods. Today, I’m going to explain single and dual coil builds so you can make up your own mind! There are benefits to both sides and it’s ultimately up to your own tastes to decide which will work best for you. Single coils: There are still awesome benefits that only a single coil build can achieve. For starters, they’re simple and […]

Using Drill Bits to Wrap Coils – Updated for 2015 How do you wrap the perfect coil? The best secret behind this is to wrap it around a drill bit so you can get maximum leverage and create the coils as close together as possible. Some go for micro coils, some go for a nano coils. You can do either with a variety of drill bit sizes. You probably can’t go wrong with a 1/8 drill bit for starters and experiment from there. Since a lot of guides and tutorials […]

After building coils myself and trying a wide variety of different builds, here are my experiences on the the different builds out there. As we all know, depending on how you shape the coil you will get different properties and a very different vape.

Every so often new types of coils come out which are hit-or-miss. The parallel coil is the real deal however. Get the power of a dual coil set up in one single coil without the hassle of twisting. Although it’s tricky to set up properly, the parallel coil packs a serious punch and allows you to cover a huge surface area with very little resistance. I find the .5 – .6 ohms is a sweet spot with these coils and can produce some serious clouds. It’s a fun coil to […]

“Igor Burstyn, PhD: Levels of vapor and liquid in e-cigs are “insignificant, far below levels that would pose any health risk. Additionally, there is no health risk to bystanders.” “Vapor of e-cigarettes has been concerned that this vapor is toxic but there is now a study showing that there is a minute quantities, nearly undetectable quantities, of harmful chemicals in e-cigarattes. He claims that e-cigarettes can get people off traditional cigarettes and help improve public health by switching to e-cigs. He also states that it makes no sense for […]

Expert vapers and modders love the DNA 30 chip because of the unlimited potential it has to build a custom mod. Whatever you can envision, you can do with a DNA 30 chip. If you’re thinking of building a DNA 30 mod yourself, you should review the following questions beforehand to get a good idea of what you should prepare for (Credit: Credo).

Drippers: Most drippers are set up more for clouds than flavor, as evidenced by their large chambers. These generally only hold about 20 drops of liquid depending on the amount of wick you can fit into the deck. The juice is only held in the wick and is sucked into the coils. When you run out of juice you pop your cap off and “drip” some more e-juice onto the wicks.

BIG, BIG note – I have a clone R91% (said to be a “2014 model” whatever that means, off of eBay), thus I have no idea what similar clones on the market or original units (Kayfuns, other Russians) share this one’s main deck, but as you can see above, mine has VERY roomy juice channels. They’re about 2mm deep on the bottom and about 1-1.5mm deep inside the chimney. I’ve seen some picture where the channels are shallow, but that should NOT prevent you from pulling this build off.

For many, especially those starting out, building coils is more trouble than it’s worth. Fortunately, companies like FastTech have started selling pre-built coils that are compatible with nearly any device that is rebuildable. You can choose your ohms and you get 50 of them for about $3.50. It’s such a great deal that many won’t even need to learn how to build them at all! I would suggest either of these when you first start because they are very forgiving. Most of the time, as long as you get halfway […]

What is an RBA? RBA stands for ReBuildable Atomizer. They are rebuildable/reusable versions of the standard disposables items that every vaper knows – cartomizers, atomizers, etc. The goal here is to provide a cheaper, more sustainable (and often more efficient) way to get your vapor. Once you have an RBA that you like, you can buy the materials to rebuild and reuse it for less than a dollar each month (your mileage may vary). Furthermore, all the materials required to rebuild an RBA are in use in other applications, so […]

Option 1: Use food grade PG or deionized water. You can get it at target or walgreens for $3/120 ml. Start with 5% and go from there as needed. If you don’t have distilled or deionized water you can easily distill water yourself. Just take a heat proof container and sit it in a pot that is partially filled with water. Turn the burner on medium to low and put the lid on upside down. Put some ice cubes on the inverted lid. The steam will condense on the inverted lid […]

I set out to come up with a micro coil build that is a VV friendly device. Something that would work well with my Billet Box, as well as any other VV device including eGo twist etc. Folks, no exaggeration, hype, or humble opinion. This is the holy grail. Seriously, it is that good. If it doesn’t work for you, ya didn’t build it right lol. I’m getting a great vape at 4.3 volts. Never a dry hit, no flooding, and the cotton wick after 6 mils looks brand spanking […]

Ahhh… The IGO-W. Simple. Effective. What more can you ask for? I am a big fan of both the IGO-L and the IGO-W. I haven’t used my W in a while so I decided to pull it out and whip up this illustrated guide to coiling it quick and perfect. For drippers of this style, I have really become a big fan of using the Dragon Coil method. The idea of a dragon coil is to tightly wrap your wick around the coil, while leaving both ends of the coil […]

If you’re sick of battling hot spots, getting dry hits, or Wholesale Miami Dolphins Jerseys just plain bored on a Sunday (like I was), then here’s a build for the AGA-T2 that you might want to consider: ditch the SS mesh / rope for good ol’ silica! After several videos of people setting up silica in the AGA-T2 many moons ago, I had run this setup in the past, but I and didn’t stick with it all that long. However, after last night’s success, I reckon that silica wick could be taking […]
