Yes, September 12th marks my 11th year free from smoking tobacco YAY!
September 12 marks my 9 year vapeaversary this year tomorrow.
Nine years tobacco free and loving life!
Black one on the way next week… pretty much all good reviews on this unit. I like the new firmware look. To make a comparison, The YiHi SX-Mini G-Class has all these features and more but costs $200+ and is a lot more complicated to use with a smaller screen too. Interested in trying the new mesh style “plexis” coil in the sub tank. I purchased mine and a 3pk of coils here:
For those of you old enough to remember RY4 and 555, I highly recommend you try Northland Vapor Company’s 555 and Nuts and Cream. They describe them as smooth caramel and toasted hazelnuts combined with a sweet cream and a classic mild tobacco flavor with undertones of toasted nuts. The 555 they have concocted is a perfect replica, and in fact, better than the Ruyan / Dekang 555 originally produced around the 2008/2009 era. Absolutely amazing! and in my book, an all day vape. Northland also boasts no artificial sweeteners & diketone free. You can get it here.
Next up is Quacks Juice Factory’s Goose Juice. You custard connoisseurs out there must know that Goose Juice is one of the most interesting and in demand custards made. It hails from upstate New York and there is no other vanilla custard out there like it IMO. Linda has created a very unique, delicious and hard to describe herbal formula that makes Quacks stand out on its own. It’s a must try for you vanilla custard lovers. Yes, I could not get Linda to divulge her secret flavors 🙂 If you have not tried it, I would suggest you get a pre-made bottle first. I get the DIY flavoring because yes, I save money and its easy to add VG, nicotine and 20% flavoring to a bottle. You can get it pre-made here.
Partial collection shot. The wall of fame? Mix and match. Hoarding? nahh, just a day in the life of a vaper.
Yah, I roast and grind my own beans, its one way to control your coffee flavor. Found this shot on my camera that I forgot about. We are currently enjoying these once green beans from Whiting Coffee here in ABQ. Medium roast and outstanding flavor!
Pulled this into rotation yesterday. 15/18mm 316L SS Vicious Ant Cyclone AFC with Fusion Drip Tip, 2.5mm SS single round .48Ω coil 35 Joules set at 290 Celsius. This atty was originally designed for wrapping silica rope. I so totally forgot this also has a single slot MTL setting, what a surprise! Perfect flavor and heat setting. Circa 2013. One of the best at the time. https://youtu.be/W8nJAIO6jk8
“I like the look of this – everything that an RDA should be (simple / practical / functional) and perfect for anybody venturing into building for the first time. Refreshing to see a vape product with a positive name. Sick to death of all the nods to the dark side, as if all vapers think that demonic glorification is cool. Well done – I’ll put it on my New Year wishlist.”
As a preface to the video, the Petri is one of the best all around rda’s ever produced IMHO. Its well made, engineered for flavor and originally had no AFC which means they carefully thought out size and positioning if the air holes and tightness of draw of a single hole on each side of the cap. The press fit drip tip is still the best tip to use with this rda for draw and flavor. I have tried other drip tips but none compare to the stock drip tip the way its designed. The cloud cap came along afterwards only by demand of people interested in cloud blowing and competitive cloud blowing events at the time vs. flavor. As time passed, the demand for 24mm rda’s came about and so DotMod came out with a conversion cap for that purpose that includes AFC as well.
Before the $5 Squonk Kit came out recently, I thought there was really no need for the small hex tool that came with the rda and hence I never used it and never could figure out why it was included because it did not fit anything visible on/in the RDA. After I watched the French video on how to replace the French conversion kit a light bulb went on, even though the guy did not even use the included allen key. I did not remember that the rda did come with a tool until after making the video. I dug in my archive of empty boxes of vape hardware to find the tool, tore down my build to try it and NO it does not fit the hex screw that holds down the negative post, it’s too small. I just don’t know why they included the tool when it does not fit. Anyway, you will have to find your own H1.3 hex bit driver or allen wrench to remove the negative post screw as stated in the video.
