    TA Absinthe flavour

    We are big fans of the drink, Absinthe in our house. Not that "Green Fairy" crap they sell in Australia, but proper French/Swiss Absinthe that we buy from Europe. Anyway, my wife asked me if I could find an Absinthe flavoured vape.
    Being the obliging husband I went on a search. I found that Vaping Cobra sold the Flavor Apprentice Double Absinthe concentrate so I ordered some. I made a little test batch and Mrs Dalmas was most pleased with the flavour so I made a full bottle and put it in the steeping box for 2 weeks. When I got it out I noticed that something in the liquid seems to separate, almost like an oily slick on top, but when you shake it it all mixes and the liquid goes white.

    My wife was happily vaping this for a week or so then mentioned that the vivi nova she had it in seemed to leak. I had a look and noticed that the threaded end seem to be soft. I took it apart and cleaned it in the normal way (soak then ultrasonic bath) let it dry and even after 3 days the threaded part of the tank is still soft. I ordered a metal tube for the vivi and she put some more juice in a Stardust 2 days ago. She went to top up the stardust today. When she removed the tip it was all squishy!

    There also seems to be this white residue in the vivi tank. Keep in mid that this tank has been through an ultrasonic bath (3 x 8min cycles)

    Any ideas?

    EDIT - dear mods, please change the title from PA to TA ( Done ..FM )

    Sounds like it might be an oil based concentrate. And yes, they can chew plastic just like that. I would email vaping cobra where you got it from and check with them first.

    Apparently with PA/FA Absinthe there is a flavour that is not oil based, and the concentrate that is.

    Whether or not you keep vaping it is your call. From the sounds of it, plenty of people do.

    A similar thing will happen with pluid, an absinthe based "famous" premade juice. Some flavored juices will react in different ways with different plastics, the best option for these types of flavors is to use metal or glass tanks & metal, ceramic or glass Drip tips, even then rubber/silicone o-rings & any other bits of plastic in the device may still be affected.

    If the juice is doing that to your device DO NOT continue vaping the juice left in the device, it is breaking down the plastic & leaching plastic chemical residues into your juice!

    Also storing such juices in glass bottles is preferable for the same reasons.

    Yeah, it's in a metal tank now.

    I'm going to order some of the 'absinthe like' doubler from Vape king and chuck this out.

    Cheers
