#FollowFriday – Share your story with US Senators

December 4, 2015

Thanks, CASAA.  What a great idea! Here’s something really simple you can do that could potentially have a notable impact on leaders in the US Senate and their views toward vapor products. As you might already know, this year’s Omnibus Budget Bill may include language that will effectively change the grandfather date for products newly deemed as tobacco products by the FDA. The language has already made it into the…

My Favorite New 18650 Batteries for 2015 – LG HG2 and LG HB6 (and Why)

The LG HG2, my 2015 20A 18650 Battery of Choice
October 20, 2015

Part 1 – The 20A Battery of Choice My Requirements for 18650 Vaping Batteries It’s no secret that even now, I’m (already) something of a vaping dinosaur, preferring to vape unregulated 18650 boxmods (and occasionally 18650 tube mods) over all of these newer, sexier regulated vaping devices.  I work from home, so have pretty open and unfettered access to my chargers and all of my 18650s all day long.  I…

How I got started with DIY e-Juice…

Flavorings, flavorings, flavorings...
October 17, 2015

I’ve been doing the DIY e-juice thing for a little while, really just and only for myself. I’ve hit on 3-4 great flavors that I really enjoy vaping, most of which only required one or two 30ml test batches before I went into full production. Someone in one of my Facebook groups was asking some questions and several of us ended up rambling on for a little while. I wanted…

Sponsor a Smoker

#SponsorASmoker
September 26, 2015

I’d like to take a break and chat about a great new initiative from within the vaping community – Sponsor a Smoker.  My friend Jonathan Thomas from Vapestars and Flawless Distribution introduced me to this novel pilot program where vapers are matched up with current smokers so that vaping knowledge and safety information can be transferred in a friendly manner.  Very cool stuff. They are accepting sign-ups, not only for smokers…

My 20A 18650 Workhorse – The LG HE2 (and its cousin the HE4)

LG HE2 18650 Battery
August 30, 2015

I have quite a few LG HE2s…disclaimer: I sell battery rewraps, so none of them look like HE2s anymore…lol I also have quite a few HE2s that I bought with other manufacturer wraps on them that perform amazingly identical to my HE2s.  Nothing brings a smile to my face quicker than a Hey – EFest “35A” versus MXJO “35A”…which battery is better? “bro-science” debate on Facebook.  You will have sworn testimony…

Some thoughts on 18650 Batteries for Vaping…

August 27, 2015

There’s a lot of information out there in the vapesphere about 18650 batteries.  Some of it’s good, some of it is great – some of it is honestly downright useless.  We measure these batteries three different ways – continuous amp draw capabilities (i.e., “20A” or 20 amps), battery capacity (measured in milli-Amp hours, or mAh), and cost.  In general, you can have one or the other between A and mAh…
