I have the ego ce4. The atomizer is basically just like the wire that lights up in a conventional light bulb. When you're cleaning or changing the tank, run it dry and see if there is a glow. You should also hear some crackling. This part should either work or not. If it's weak then check your battery connection.

Btw, I sat next to someone on a plane vaping freely multiple times and the stewardess didn't say anything. I didn't know you can do that. At first I was like, what the fuk is this smoke on the plane but I don't smell anything?

I haven't tried e-cig but have heard some are good, some not so much.
I'd also heard there are refillable ones.
If you have suggestions I'd love to hear them.
Thank you!
I've tried them and as for me using it doesn't have any sense. I couldn't see any positive effect by using them for the long period and finally decided to refuse them.

I'm going to give it another try soon, now that I'm moving to calmer waters I stand a chance. Besides, the ladies really don't particularly care for the smoking most of the time.

Yeah checking in too, almost a year without cigarettes. Great invention, I wish more smokers knew about it and were less ignorant towards it.

Started this a month ago, haven't smoked since.

Got an eGoC-Twist from altsmoke.com and a few Visions clearomizers. I've been trying out a bunch of different flavors from pinkspotvapors.com and found I have had to order about 10 more clearomizers and wicks for them.

All in all its been a pretty easy transition. Started with high nicotine juices but they were a bit sharp, stepped down to medium, it got a little better, and now on low.

Planning on ditching nicotine altogether in a week or so, then steadily back off the ecigs. These things are fantastic.

Top flavors personally from pinkspot are:

- Strawberry cottoncandy
- Raspberry lemonade
- Gummibear
- Blueberry cheesecake

Went to a local shop cause I ran out of juices this week but damn they didnt even compare, way to VG based, no throat hits, and jammed the sh*t out of the clearomizers. Never going back there, pinkspot all the way.

This is the same one I use. I've been using mine for a little over a month and havent touched a traditional cig since. I cant even stand the smell of them anylonger. I love mine.

Anyone looking for a new flavor, try the Butter Rum.

Hey! this thread came back. I started a month and a half ago and now I think I spent WAY too much. I was never a heavy smoker, but I hated smelling like cigs every day.

Heres what I'm vaping now http://i.imgur.com/ZtMirVM.jpg [linked because too big]

Provari with RSST & Ego-T with an igo-s.

started vaping today, haven't had a smoke in 36 hours.

Dwade46 recommended an ego twist and that's what I picked up. wicked little piece IMO.

farmdog,

firstly, I miss your old sig. It was a classic.

secondly, I have no craving for a smoke right now. My throat feels a bit better and when I cough I feel like I have more air in my lungs etc. I'm interested to see how one week smoke free will be as I haven't done that in over 2 years now.

Cheers

I'm going to the local ecig shop on Monday and will look out for those flavors. I'll also try getting a lower nicotine concentration like some of you guys are doing. Im currently using the 12. Im not sure if its 12 mg/ml or 12 mg/10ml.

I have tried alien e-liquid and Dekang brand juice. How are these compared to the other companies that offer liquids?

Dekang is cheap, chinese sh!t, stay away, buy american. I can't even imagine the stuff they put in their juice to keep it so cheap.

you can always make your own juice. VG and PG can be purchased at CVS or Walmart.
