Sorry OFRF, Wrong Direction…

On OFRF’s web page:

…”So will OFRF disappear? Definitely not, OFRF will move into the cannabis and CBD hardware market.

It has always been OFRF’s intention to move into the CBD / THC vaping market. Stated OFRF CEO Chris Hopkins. For the past six months OFRF engineers have been working in collaboration with Wotofo engineers to develop a new coil tech designed specifically for the use in CBD and THC vaping cartridges and we are very excited about this new direction.

Stay tuned for our first CBD pen product launch coming soon.”…

All I have to say is I do love your little eLiquid mesh tank but sorry Chris, wrong direction.

From the CEO…

“As expected, reports of people being hospitalized due to a “mystery lung disease” continue to grow. The non-communicable lung disease that is increasingly being linked to products such as K2/Spice and/or adulterated THC cartridges–sold by underground sellers–is now under investigation in 22 states including CA, CT, FL, IL, IN, IA, MN, MI, NC, NJ, NM, NY, PA, TX, UT, WI, and as of Thursday, Colorado has its first confirmed case.

As of Friday morning, one death in Illinois is being attributed to an unknown substance that people are consuming by way of vaping. CASAA extends our condolences to the family and share in everyone’s disappointment in knowing that this tragic death could have been prevented if more compassionate policies were in place.

In last week’s Heads Up Round Up we briefly highlighted the concern that state and federal drug policy is complicating diagnosis, patient care, and accurate reporting about these clusters of lung disease. But in the wake of these reported illnesses, almost all of the usual anti-tobacco campaigners are using this event to elevate their cries for an all-out ban on nicotine vaping products–especially e-liquids sold in flavors other than tobacco.

Anti-tobacco campaigners are advocating for policies that will do absolutely nothing to prevent events like this in the future. Rather, it is more likely that heavy regulation–even if it isn’t total prohibition–will lead to more instances of people being harmed by fake pot, adulterated THC, or poorly manufactured nicotine products sold on an unregulated, illicit market. According to an article on TechCrunch, the FDA is still uncertain if the products being used even fall under the agency’s regulatory authority.

CASAA is reaffirming our advice to consumers that vapor products (THC and nicotine) should be purchased from reputable sources and not “on the street.” We also note that the terminology used to discuss this issue can benefit from including a clear distinction between nicotine vaping, THC/cannabis vaping, and synthetic cannabinoid vaping (k2/spice). Simply reporting that a mysterious lung disease is generally attributable to “vaping” will have harmful unintended consequences such as sending people back to combustible tobacco or discouraging them from making the switch at all.”

Stay safer,

Alex Clark, CEO
CASAA

Your Card Will Be Pulled…

sorry.were.closed.png

In the USA, it’s official, the FDA is now going to be pulling your card (eLiquid) if you did not submit your PMTA’s.

Yep, it’s starting. Start sweating. Four down, thousands to go.

Only the strong and smart will survive and or eLiquid companies with the most money, as the average PMTA filing cost’s about $300K per flavor, per nic level and per size.

Wotofo Designer Coils ? !

wotofo.coils

framed.stapled.clapton.coil

Attention folks, Asia, specifically Wotofo, is making perfect (well almost 🙂 ) designer coils! Someone at Wotofo has listened to someone who knows something about vaping coils.
For the first time, in my vaping history anyway, for less than $1 per coil, I can get really nicely made and very clean designer coils in a packs of 10 each. Yes I know Asia has produced separate coils in various configurations, but they usually are much less complicated or the wrong diameter and of less quantity and quality. Now, we have 3mm (the perfect diameter) N80 coils that I can put in most of my atomizers without much hassle or wishing I could make the ones we see on Instagram, commonly known as coil porn. In my mind, if these were made from stainless steel, they would be perfect. I can’t wait to give them a try and hopefully, I am not allergic to Nickel.
30 coils should last me a long, long time. As I have read, nichrome has a TCR value of 0.000112 or Joyetech format 0011. Ni80 is not intended for use with temp control.

Here are the three variations that I ordered from my friends at Eciggity.com :

28+38 x 9 + 28+36 @ .33 Ohms

Tri Core Fused Clapton
26×3 + 38 @ .17 Ohms

Quad Core Fused Clapton
28×4 + 36 @ .26 Ohms

Simply amazing.

 

DotSquonk Back From Repair

About a week ago, I recently woke up to find my dot.squonk button frozen and a bit of eLiquid splattered around the mod. Luckily, it was not a battery venting issue. However, the mod was not usable anymore. I took it apart and found the peek insulator was melted and the cable to the positive battery pin was blackened/roasted. I immediately emailed dot.mod and they responded quickly. I was asked how I maintained the center pin and I explained truthfully, not often, I was told that I should have been doing regular cleaning of the center pin. I did remove the pin and found the pin was also blackened from overheating but still cleanable. They explained that it was a known issue with some folks and they have re-engineered the button assembly. I was sent the RMA and just got the mod back today all working and good to go. Great customer service that will keep me buying their products.

Innokin Proton Kit

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:
