Books, A Brick In The Wall, and a Box Mod
July 30, 2016

Background…(why not?) I started chewing tobacco (well, more precisely “dipping snuff”) pretty early in life.  I admit, at times I can be something of an “early adopter”, generally at precisely the wrong times…lol.  Bill Gates missed the whole “internet” thingy when it was in its infancy…the CIA missed that “Berlin Wall” thingy when it started toppling…I’m not sure whether Ms. Youree Dell Harris missed the date and time of her tragic passing…

Free Vape Advice, Episode V: The Spice Rack Strikes Back

The Humble Spice Rack: An excellent force multiplier for your vaping storage needs
March 12, 2016

My wife’s a genius. While out cruising for bargains at estate sales and in shops that specialize in “gently used” goods, she started collecting spice racks.  And then thought maybe I could use one or two. Wow.  Whether it’s in my closet where I store some of my juice, or behind my door where I store my DIY supplies…this is an amazing and incredibly cheap way to store juices.  They’re…

What is a series box mod?

Chump Modz "Murica" Series Dual 18650 Boxmod
January 15, 2016

I also see this question a lot.  2015 was certainly the year of the boxmod, as predicted by many in 2014.  Boxmods come in two main battery configurations when there is more than one battery – these are referred to as “series” and “parallel”.  When you call a box mod “series”, it’s really this battery configuration you’re talking about. Most of the time, when folks are referring to series and parallel,…

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…

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…

Series or Parallel? Parallel or Series? What are the Differences in Vaping?

LG HE2s under TokeJuice Custom Wraps
June 13, 2015

This was asked in a Facebook group by a friend earlier today so I went off on a little bit of a rambling discussion…lol  I had the exact same question a few months back.  I am by no means an expert in battery-related issues – likewise this is by no means the be-all, end-all discussion on the subject, so comments and improvements are quite welcomed. An 18650 battery is 18mm…

My friends in the Vape Gear Community

I’ve ordered vaping stuff from several folks at this point (and am planning on ordering from quite a few more since they have been spoken of so highly by my friends).  At this point, I am sub-ohming with mechanical mods, using both RDAs and RTAs. I have my first unregulated box on the way, and also have a little 20W regulated box on the way for my wife who has recently quit smoking. This…
