    How Much Flavour is too much?

    G'day Again,

    My question is exactly as it appears in the title, How much flavour is too much? What percentage should you not exceed?

    My "vapors tongue" is driving me crazy and I'm dying to taste those delicious flavours!

    By the way, I started on 24mg, then went to 12mg as I was feeling a bit sus, Now I have gone down to 8mg Nic and I feel fine! (I vape a lot!)


    Cheers!

    What brands of flavours are you using? Some are very strong (JF Super concentrates at 1-2%) and some not as concentrated (Flavor West 20-25%)

    As a general rule start low, and go up, With FW I start at 5% for multiple concentrate mixes, and start at 10% for single flavour mixes. With the Super Concentrates, I start at 1% , then test, then add more if needed. TPA I treat the same as FW and Capella. There are some flavours such as coffee that you should be very careful with, start very low with drops, TPA caramel cappuccino is one that I only use 1-2 "drops" per 10 ml of liquid, and many of the coffee flavours are the same. Sour flavour, and sucralose should also be only used in drops.

    In other words, start low, test, add more if needed, test, and write down the amounts you use, and the flavours you use, as you go along, (keep a mixing diary). Nothing worse than mixing up a great flavour and not being able to repeat it

    G'day Spud, I get a day out of my coils and notice a tapering off in performance through the day. By the time I get home from work, Im hanging to throw in a new/rebuilt coil!

    I will look into the kayfun, hopefully more reliable. Any particular model?

    Also, Iv noticed a significant difference in flow between my 2 identical protanks (something to do with the base).

    Gees its warm here! 35 Degrees in April??????????????????
