Hey I've got pic related (o.pen vape)

I'm wondering if I open up one of those throw away cartridges and shove a little dab hit down onto the coil will it be effective to hit?

It might not work the best, but I can't think of any reason it wouldn't work.

This, except don't get a mechanical mod unless you have a specific reason too. Regulated mods are way safer than mechs, and they're so cheap nowadays there's not much point in using a mech.

So I just ordered an istick tempure control 60watt. Does anyone have this device and what do you think of it or isticks in general. I've heard some good reviews and i've heard some horror stories about isticks setting on fire and misfiring so I hope this is a good experiance I couldn't afford a subbox and it's my first real vape.

12 hours holy shit, how many watts do you vape at?

I opted to get a model that took 18650's knowing that I might not have. I don't know though I'd still rather replace a battery than the mod when the battery goes to shit.

damn that sounds pretty good though I might have to get one.

I vape at 35-45 watts, and I vape all day every day. I mean like... 4-5 hits a minute NONSTOP unless I'm in class or whatever. I've stepped all the way down to 1.5mg nicotine and I can't even tell the difference from 6mg because I'm hitting the thing so much anyway.

Shit so far my 50w lasts at least 10h~ (though I've never really timed it out, so it's an estimate really) without needing to be charged, @25-35W.
I can easily go higher/lower but it'd drop/raise a couple hours on my estimate.

But yeah, I understand the feeling of wanting to only replace a battery instead of the entire mod, when it inevitably craps out. But I suppose that's the way shit goes...
Pros: Long battery life, Fairly cheap price;
Cons: Won't last as long as some other mods, Can have manufacturing issues.

They're decent imo.

To answer your question, yes there are. I had an original Subtank and it leaked out over half the juice I put in it I swear to god. Thankfully I was using mech mods and boxes hadn't really caught on yet so there weren't really any electronics to damage but it was a huge pain in my ass.

After I gave up the Sub I got a Herakles which has .2 ohm coil options and is good up to 100 Watts if not more. Never once in a year of having it have I seen it leak like the subtank. If I leave it on its' side for a few days on end, sure, it'll leak but never in proper vaping circumstances has it.

My current tank, the TFV4 doesn't leak at all. It has a top-fill system and so many coil options I don't even know how many there are. They've got nickel, claptons for taste, and ultra-low ohm ones for the cloud chasers. It's an excellent overall investment and the most versatile tank I have ever seen. I recommend either but know the Herakles V1 (they did release a much improved V2) has about 1/3 the airflow of my TFV4 which is huge to me. Apparently the V2 rectifies this though so if you go with it, that should not be an issue.

I actually have the exact same setup as the OP (just got it rather recently actually, since my local B&M had some stuff on sale) and I haven't really had any issues. But I've also not had it very long. But my tank doesn't leak really at all, and I can fix the bubbling issue pretty fast after refilling.


If anyone is worried about a charger short, (which is a real concern if your tank is leaking) I suggest that you purchase a rubber charging port cover. That should prevent the most obvious cause of any potential shorts. You can easily find em on Amazon for fairly cheap. I'll leave a link at the bottom. But simply using a port cover when you're using the device can prevent anything from getting inside, and damaging the pins, and I highly recommend it.

If you're worried about the device being too flimsy and you happen to have butterfingers, you can always purchase a protective case for it. They do make em specifically for the iStick series after all. (Once again, you can find them on amazon).

They may not be the most hearty of devices from what I can tell, but remember that you can always attempt to improve them, and for the price, that's not so bad. Same goes for the Subtank.

But honestly, I guess I'm not the best person to ask. I'm not super experienced when it comes to box mods or tanks. I just know that protecting your device is a better investment than purchasing another one. =)

This board came along at just the right time. I recently had a go of pic related and was really really impressed. Previously I thought only top end marijuana vaporizers were worth bothering with, and anything less than a Volcano (let alone HANDHELD) were wastes of time. But I thoroughly enjoyed pic related, and would like to get in on the portable vape action.

That said, pic related is around £150, and I'm just thinking if I'm spending this much on one of these things, what's an extra £50 or so. Does anyone here have any personal experiences with portable vapes for under £200 (around $300) that they would recommend? One thing I want to be aware about is shelling out for one of these things and then a few months later them releasing a updated, superior version.
I'm gravitating towards the "Crafty" at the minute but I don't feel too strongly either way.

Mine arrived two days ago and I love it already.
The vape is comparable to my arizer EQ, big clouds for a handheld and good flavour.
Battery life has been great, had 3 sessions yesterday and it was still going by the end of it.
Gets a bit warm in your hands, and really toasts the bud (comes out almost black) but for the price I'd 100% recommend it.

The TFV4 is fine and most of the coil options are pretty good. And because they are vertical coils they have enough airflow and wire surface area to use them with high wattages.
Sadly though all the nickel, titanium and steel wire coil heads really suck. They've got way less airflow and two tiny coils.

Now smok even released a 180W 4x clapton coil, pretty neat, although I don't get why they won't release any of the regular coil heads with temp control wire. Somehow I get the suspicion they're fucking with us, get us to buy all those different coils which are all less than perfect to release what we actually need several months down the line and then they have sold all the different options to everybody. Honestly I don't see any other reason for them not to do it, but what the hell.

Anyway, have 2 of the single coil RBA decks and I somewhat successfully built a vertical coil on it, but it's way too much hassle and the results are mediocre.
So I'm wondering perhaps is is possible to rebuild the TF-Q4 coils with nickel or titanium wire, possible by utilizing different parts of RBA sections and the chimney of the old coil head. Try to rebuild a TF-Q4 itself?

I never seen somebody do it, some claim they do, but all I see people to is disassemble them, not put them back together.

Help I want that 100W+ plume from a tank possible with the TFV4 but with temp control.

What's up guys.

So long story short, a friend and I got into a bit of an argument about the name of a piece of older vaping equipment, and since neither of us knows what it's called (and searching for what we believe it's called doesn't bring up any relevant pictures) I'm coming to you guys to figure out what it's really called. So any help would be great. You might help me win 5$. (Wow big money right!)

So the piece of equipment in question is the one in the photo (photo says "T-Tank" but that doesn't help us sadly), obviously. I believe it was called a Tankomizer, but my friend thinks it was called a drip-tip or something. I know it's petty, but we're not super serious about anyhow and I'm more curious than anything.

But that's what tanks used to look like when I first started vaping years ago (right around the time those screw-on pre-filled cartridges and shit like Blu started coming out, but long before there were ads or commercials) when most people I knew who tried vaping used cig-likes like Blu, etc. Or atleast that's what they first looked like, iirc. I remember it going from the cartridges to these, to the bigger tanks (with two O-ring type seals on each side of the glass) to the types of tanks they have now.

So can anyone help me out? Does anyone else remember these things?

You might be right...

But after I watched that I got the bright idea to search "tankomizer" on youtube (because I thought that's what they were called, but I hadn't thought to search Youtube until after watching that video for some reason lol) and I found another video (linked at the bottom), that suddenly made me remember WHY I thought they were called that (although I guess they were, by some people)...

I was using a Volcano e-cig at that time, and I guess that was their own product name for them, and that name spread a bit I guess? Searching Tankomizer on Youtube even yields (some pretty damn old) vids and etc. with people calling them Tankomizers, but the definition seems cloudy...

I hate to be so straightforward, but what do you think the verdict is here guys? I can't personally judge this one since I'm involved, and while it sounds like I was kind of right, I just don't know if I was "win the money" right, or if either of us really were... I mean I guess I sorta was right, but it was a proprietary name so... Idk.

Let me know what you guys think.

Or I suppose (after rewatching that video) I could be an idiot and because I skimmed material I never realized that the "tankomizer" was the type of atomizer developed for use with those tanks.That makes so much more sense actually.

So yeah, I wasn't right at all. Neither of us were. So never mind lol. No winners here I suppose.

Thanks for the info though!

Anyhow, that vid I linked is unintentionally hilarious for some reason. nb.

Vape virgin here.

Basically, I want to be able to vape pre-filled THC oil cartridges that I can buy from dispensaries. I ALSO want to be able to vape shatter and wax.

From what little research I've done, it seems like all I need is a battery and some kind of refillable cartridge for the shatter/wax. If possible, I would like to avoid having those glass globes. I think they look super tacky. I just want a solid colored cartridge that can vape shatter/wax that is not disposable and that I can reuse almost indefinitely, or at least have a long life before I need to replace it. As for the pre filled cartridges, I'm assuming I can twist those right on to the battery, correct?

As for the battery I was thinking to get either the eGo twist or Kanger EMOW. They're both variable voltage and in the right price range, but are they any good? Which is better and are there any better alternatives?

As for the refillable concentrate cartridge being compatible with the battery, what exactly am I looking at? Do I need to make sure the cartridge is rated to withstand a certain voltage? How do I make sure that the battery and the refillable cartridge are electrically compatable?

I have no intention of using this for e-juice or nicotine.

Thank you.

You can make it with VG but the problem with it is that it's not as strong as alcohol extraction, when you dissolve cannabinoids into VG the potency is only 1/3 max of what alcohol's is. There are a handful of premade PEG blends available online (EJMix, Puff Magic, etc) that you mix with hash oil and it works in tanks/drippers. I hear it tastes weird and can be a bit harsh on the throat though so that's something to consider. Maybe you could mix some of the PEG blend with hash oil and use as little PEG as possible to keep it potent, and then some VG into that. An online friend of mine posted about using this special CO2 hash oil that uses terpenes to thin the hash oil out enough to feed properly through a Subtank so that's possible though you'd have to buy/obtain your own terpenes for that lol.

>I also question if sub-ohm vaping would make this impossible, because I'm not sure if the coils would get hot enough to degrade the THC.

Not at all, why would it be an issue? The coils don't get that hot, they reach the temperature at which juice vaporizes at and stop there, otherwise even with a wet wick the coil would just burn through the cotton. My temp controlled build I use at 500f which is higher than cotton's ignition temperature yet it never burns it.

Like the post above suggests, you can use a pre-mix like EJ, and use a concentrate to dissolve in it. However, I use a method that may be a bit less efficient, the dis-advantage is, it has to be done on an RDA/dripper, won't work in a tank. If you can afford dabs, you take an RDA with a build in it, freshly wicked, and some juice soaked into the wick (preferably 0mg, or 3mg, due to throat hit combined with the dabs being really harsh). I'll typically take some hits till the wick is getting dry again, then put a small glob of the dabsicles on each of your coils, and then pulse the fire button with the top cap off, to slowly heat and melt it into the coil/wick. Then put some eliquid on top, pop on the top cap, and it's ready to rip, great for someone who's on the go. The first 4 hits are strong, and if you push yourself, you may gag enough to puke, so take it easy until you get a feel for it. Now, after doing this several times, there'll be a considerable amount in the wick, and you can just re-juice it and still get some nice hits, also there'll be some reclaim on the inside of the top cap you can scrape off and re-vape. Good Luck!

I also didn't feel the same shittyness as smoking - vaping is misleading in that, I think I am healthier than i am now but really any time I take the stairs it is a reminder that I smoked for 5 years heavily.

By shittyness I mean the groggyness, the throat shit, the smell, the headaches when i oversmoke, the burn all that shit.

I asked a friend obsessed with vaping and they gave me a 1300mah vision spinner and a plastic CE3 head with a replaceable coil and a few different juices. Their advice was don't mess with anything that looks like a cigarette because it won't give the hit you need to make a successful switch, nor will it have the battery life to make it not seem like a pain in the ass.

At first it felt a bit cumbersome and stupid, like of felt self concious. But I instantly preferred it to cigarettes because it was cheaper, didn't smell like shit and ticked the boxes for mouth/throat and nicotine hit. Never looked back.

My advice would be the same, get a half decent battery and head and get on with it. Don't waste time and money on underpowered things trying to look like cigarettes and just deal with the fact it looks like a bloody sonic screwdriver.

I had concerns. after reading up on it *they* say that ..

Nicotine causes the blood vessels to dilate reducing blood flow to the gums and can cause recession. This is nicotine dependent irrespective of method of consumption. It is also highly dependent on other factors like individual susceptibility, diet, oral hygiene routine and brushing technique.

Some people experience bleeding gums when switching from tobacco because they experience an increased blood flow to the gums and previously hidden problems like poor gum health, gum disease, poor oral hygiene etc become apparent.

Dry mouth is a thing due to PG vapour. I personally think that this could cause accelerated tooth decay and oral health issues due to saliva helping to keep teeth coated and less susceptible to bacterial adhesion and growth. This concerns me.

I think that these all these 'issues' are present anyway with tobacco smoking and vaping is likely the lesser of two evils if you do choose to consume nicotine. I think plenty of it can be avoided or reduced by reducing PG consumption, vaping direct to lung instead of mouth to lung, chewing a gum containing xylitol, drinking more water and practising good dental hygiene like regular flossing.

I'm sure you can't eliminate all the risks to every activity, but you can reduce them. I've not experienced any increase in side effects from switching to vaping, my dentist still bitches me out about receding gums, but he attributes this to nicotine and brushing technique, he doesn't single out anything else in particular.

He told me that I need to wrape the floss around my tooth, and not do it so hard by mainly just cleaning out the gums more than penetrating them.

So what kind of lifespan do yall get from your TF-V4 coils?

I picked one up a little while ago and I've had disappointing results. I've tried the triple, the quad, and the quad clapton and they have all lasted roughly the same. They hit great for about the first day, start to fall off by the end of the second day, and are barely usable after that.

I've had my TFV4 since they came out about 3-4 months (bad time perception, maybe shorter or longer) ago and I gotta say I think you're doing something wrong. The tri-coil lasted me about 2-3 weeks, and the quad was about the same. I'm on my second Clapton (.35 ohms) and it's been over a week with perfect vapor so I'd say that one's about the same.

You need to walk the coils up to the proper wattage. Start vaping the new coil at the minimum wattage (for example, my Clapton starts at 30 and goes up to 90) and just increase the wattage each puff by no more than 5 watts, I usually stick around 3 at a time. This will keep the coil from getting "shocked" and prematurely burning which is what your problem sounds like. I personally didn't know about this for a long time and killed many a coil this way.

The best ones I've had are the straightforward TF-Q4 quads that also come with the kit. They are also the least expensive ones and they take the highest wattage.

There are also new octuple clapton coils which are supposed to go upto 180 watt, Perhaps try them, most shops don't have them but you can order from fasttech.

Lasting is also relative, if you're using 100 watt and a 3 week old coil goodness gracious, no way that tastes right... I mean you get accoustumed to everything.
