Hey guys

My vape for some reason is lighting up orange when I use it. The light is INSIDE the coil... any idea if its safe to use? it's kind of worrying me as its a very cheap (and temp) coil. Pic unrelated...

That's the actual metal coil inside the coil head heating up.

Maybe try turning the wattage down?

So I got the CCI Phalanx box mod months ago as part of my first "serious" vape. I never got another one because after all the money I put in my set up and it going horribly wrong I never wanted to risk something like that again.
The first week was awesome. The mod and the CCI Archon RDA produced huge clouds, and I didn't have to worry about charging the batteries much since it uses 3 at a time. During the remaining two weeks I used it the button (or something) started messing up more and more. At first it wouldn't fire sometimes when I hit the button, then it'd work half the times I hit it, then like 1/4th, and until finally the button only works like one out of ten times I press it. Even then I would have to press it very firmly every time. The reasonable amount of pressure on the button needed at first won't get it to go no matter how many times I hit it.
I came across the thing while looking around in my room and felt inspired to try again. Any fucking idea what the issue is? I've done some googling around and I only found one forum post elsewhere talking about the same problem I have with the same mod and no one could give an answer. Is there some common problems some box mods have no matter what the brand that could cause this?
I really want this to work. I barely smoked any cigs at all when it was doing fine, and I desperately want to quit smoking. Nowadays I really don't have much spare money so just buying a replacement of this or another brand isn't really an option.
BTW, I did take it back to the shop I got it from and asked about it. They pretty much said, "Iunno. No refunds tho."

The switch is advertised as mechanical so you're probably going to need to disassemble the box for cleaning and maintenance, as detailed in a forum thread I saw via a quick "phalanx box mod not firing" search. All except one of my mods are fully mechanical and eventually require disassembly for cleaning and maintenance.

After vaporizing weed for a few months i noticed that i cough less compared to times when i used the bong, but i still cough. Usually it happens in the beginning of the next day after vaping. And i vaping every evening, in small amounts, but regularly.
Does the coughing means that im vaping it wrong? I usually try to avoid the combustion, but weed doesnt turn black, most of the time it becomes dark brown. Maybe i inhale the vape too deeply? When i inhale, i dont see anything. And i hold the vape for 2-4 seconds.

Nah sounds like you're doin' it right.

It's warm/hot vapor and kinda irritating, also THC is a known expectorant (makes you cough). Is your throat slightly sore when you wake up? Have you tried using your vape though a bong or other water pieces? I use it with water 98% of the time. Warm water is nice, I prefer warm/hot water to cold water.

>When i inhale, i dont see anything.


you don't exhale any vapor at all?

What vape are you using anyways

Damn, sorry, i was high when i wrote the post. I meant that i dont see anything when i exhale. But when i inhale it looks like little cloud of vape. After inhaling, i often feel slight burning in my throat and i drink a lot of water to calm it down.
I dont have any possibility to use vape through a bong or water pieces. And my vape i cheap, its similar to Palm if you know the model. Unfortunately i cant buy anything better.
My throat is often sore when i wake up, but i dont think that its related to the cough. Yesterday i vaped another little amount and got high, but before gong to bed i coughed approximately 5 times. I hope that you are right and its related to hotness of vapor, because if its something else, maybe im better off using a bong? Though i coughed more when i had been using it. I dont know what to think.

So it must always be visible after exhaling, like with smoke?
Yesterday i tried to inhale more slowly and in calm manner, not so precipitously like i did before. And, maybe its coincidence, but i almost didnt cough at all. Could it be related?

I think I got sick from vaping/crackling and spitting question

this is my second week since I got my vaporizer, so I'm pretty clueless of what I'm doing. I was chain vaping almost everyday with no problems with the red atomizer that came with the mod.
when the taste started going to shit (burnt, little taste) I replaced the red one with the blue one (one is 0.15, the other 0.5, but I don't know which is which)
This atomizer was spitting like hell, so I did a few things like not screwing it too tightly, drying the atomizer a bit, increased the VG and changed the way I vape (hold it on for one or two seconds before inhaling it) and it worked.
But it got pretty hot, and I think the clouds were way thicker and the juice went down much faster. Turns out I started to feel REALLY light headed after a few hits, stopped thinking straight (which felt kinda good) but I got stomach pains and ended up shitting and puking my precious quesadillas. I'm skeptical it was the nicotine that caused it, because I smoked 4 malboros one after the other before and felt fine. It was just 6mg of nic originally, actually, even lower than that because I added the extra VG directly in the tank just to see if it was really the VG proportion that caused the spitting. I'm still feeling kinda bad as I type this.

So, I got two questios:
  1. I chain vaped a lot with cool vapors, taking long hits without spitting or waiting a few seconds before activating it. What caused all that crap so I had to change all my setup and how do I get it back?
  2. Why did I get sick? Did I ingest nicotine from the spitting? Is it because it got too hot and I ended up vaping much more than I should? Is it normal to get sick or light headed from it? Am I going to die? I'm feeling like complete shit. My hands are shaking as I type this.
I'm loving and hating this fucking thing.

sorry for the false advice, I thought this worked but it really doesn't.
Both OCC's (horizontal and vertical) and the RBA give spit-back, leak and have burnt taste after several uses.
I have tried countless coils and cotton thicknesses.
I went back to the shop and they're still shilling out the same kanger shit.
There is no point in rebuilding an OCC, especially not a vertical coil; I honestly don't know what I'm doing wrong with the RBA.
If I can't get this shit working within a week I'm just gonna buy a different tank/RBA or quit nicotine.

I went to the doctor for something unrelated to my lung health and mentioned I'd successfully been able to cut way back on smoking through using a vape. When I asked her the health risks of vaping out of curiosity(Everyone has a different answer it seems) She said that due to all the preservatives and chemicals in ejuice it's not much better than smoking at all.

What do you guys know about the health effects of vaping? I'm looking for actual fact based contributions, not just diehard vape fanboys who would support it if it meant inhaling powdered glass. I'm sure there's somebody on the internet selling preservative free natural ejuice, would that make any difference?

I'm still pretty new to vaping and have bought a few juices. This is what I've noticed since I'm very health conscious-

  1. Some juices have a crap ton of additives, while others keep it simple and down to PG, VG, and a flavoring. I'd stick to those. If you really want to keep it as clean as possible, skip the flavors altogether.

2. Don't go higher than .5 ohms. It seems after some reading that it's much riskier as you can possibly be inhaling more decomposing materials.

3. Change your coil + wick as often as you can cost effectively afford. The older they get, the more decomposing crap you're inhaling.

4. Don't go too high on your watts/volts. The hotter you burn, the more shit you're probably inhaling as well.

I'm no diehard vape fiend but I do really enjoy it, but I'm always wondering about what exactly are the implications of what I'm inhaling that isn't yet studied beyond what they've already tested.

Depends on your build. Watch the screen and set watts so that when the volts move up or down it reads 4.20v. that's the voltage that freshly charged batteries come off at, and wil help guide you. Go up slowly.

In addition to Quetz's advice, for anyone out there trying regulated setups having used mechanicals, I recommend underestimating the voltage necessary to get a good hit, i.e. start below 4.2V or 8.4V despite all the mechanical marketing tactics and hype of low or no voltage drop.

For example, a 0.14Ω 22g KA1 dual 5/4 2.5mm build reads 126W and 30A at 4.2V but running that build at an actual 126W at the atty would be dry hit city. Nevertheless the build probably hits okay on a mechanical but that's because the numbers run saggy while firing. Likewise a 0.5Ω 24g KA1 dual 12/11 3mm series build will run hot at 8.4V but probably hits better on a mechanical with fresh batteries running 7V and lower at the atty.

after a quick page search i did not find anyone recommend the SMOK tfv4 kit. RDAs used to be a lot more popular because the technology of the tanks was subpar a year or two ago. RDAs used to be king for flavor, smoothness, and cloud production. now tanks have caught up in technology and are just as good with the added convenience of not having to drip every 10-15 fucking puffs.

do some research on the SMOK TFV4 and SMOK TFV4 mini. both are a great choice, tons of customization, are great with high wattage box mods, easy to use, easy maintenance, cheap replacement coils/cotton piece once every week to two weeks depending on how often you vape. you'll be able to taste when you need to replace it.

I vape low nic (3mg) basically all day at home if I'm not at uni or work.

Whenever I'm away from home for more than 1-2 days, like right now I'm at my parent's house over easter, and don't vape I get stomach ache and gas. I don't really change a lot in the food I eat or drinks (water and coffee all day), I might be sitting on a different chair and move around less, I can't really tell where this is coming from and it sucks.

Does anyone find when you take like a 3-4 month broke from opiates specifically
Oxy the first time you hit some again it's not as good as I'd you only took say a couple week break? It's like your brain relearned to create its own feel good chemicals and isn't friending them anymore or so when you take them it's not like that instant releif feeling kind of. That's just how it feels personally does anyone with more knowledge know if that's what's actually happening, or if it feels the same for you after a 3+ month break and your no longer in paws. Then if you keep doing it for he neXt few days it starts feeling better after smaller breaks? Cheers fam

Off topic and probably troll, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. This LSD strain has me all extra giving and shit. Colors are more vibrant too. Wild. I figured the hype was gonna be a letdown. 10/10 would purchase again.

You need a neti-pot, a salt packet that usually comes with them, and not be a spazz. Old world remedy. Warm water in pot, add salt packet, swish it around so it'll dissolve thoroughly. Lean over sink, tilt head to the side just about as far as you can, pour the salt-water in the top nostril. Depending on how bad the infection is, it may not break through immediately, but you'll see drips of water out the other nostril, which will then pour out. If the infection isn't that bad you should just see it pour out the other end as soon as you start. I said the not being a spazz part because some people spazz out about the water passing through your sinuses. They say it feels like drowning or something. Which it kinda does in that way, but this remedy has worked and been used for people forever, now.

I tried a netty pot for the first time like a week ago and besides gagging on saline water it was a truly amazing experience. Youll probably look like Frank from your gif, OP.

Also go pick up some pseudoephedrine from your local pharmacy. Its sold behind the counter because you can make meth with it, but just go ask them for some. Shit is an amazing congestion relief. Mucinex D is great stuff too but hella expensive for what it does, really the only benefit of Mucinex is that its extended release so you dont have to carry around pseudos and Guaifenesins all day
