    Cheapest OS concentrate vendor *noob

    I heard on a post that it is cheapest to buy concentrates from US. Can anyone let me know where you get your's from, I am interested in making some head in the clouds recipes.

    I don't know.

    12 months ago you'd go to Flavorer's Apprentice, fill up a cart and whatever the price, it was worth it. Capella was another option.

    Now, no longer a valid option. USPS won't accept anything from them so it's all Fedex and UPS, which means it costs US$70 minimum for shipping. If you don't mind that kind of shipping bill, then it's still an option but I can't tolerate that kind of shipping cost.

    I can't find flavours here (yet they make them here, I know), so I'm stuck.

    I'll be in Oz over the new year break, and I expect to snap up some bottles of flavour concentrate while I'm there. Not so much 'cheap' as 'available without extortionist shipping', which is the best I can hope for.

    If you find somewhere selling flavour concentrates for reasonable prices with good quality and tolerable shipping, I'm all ears. I've not found anything yet.

    (Also needs to be Paypal. I can finance a new car in my own name, but they won't let me have a credit card here. Yes, it's racist. I don't care.)

    Hiliq might be an option for you for the concentates. I'm having some pretty good results with what I've tried so far. They seem easy to work with and 90% of give fair results.

    I'm still working through testing the last batch of stuff I got from them. My preference is normally for FA, but the Hiliq stuff is very cost effective.

    I dont know about cheapest from the US anymore - by the time you figure inthe Aussie dollar vs the US dollar plus postage - Most of the time I think it pretty much works out the same or more costly

    Some aussie vendors include

    Juice factory (Who will often order in things that they dont stock if you request it )
    Juice Concentrates - Capella - Page 1 - Juice Factory


    Juicewhore who have been around forever
    Concentrates


    These guys and others like them who also offer packs of juices for clone recipies
    All Concentrates - Sydney Vapour

    Aussie ecigs sell cheap but good concentrates as well and will sometimes make some flavours from scratch for you

    I vote shop around cause unless you want to buy from asia- I dont think you will make any real savings between here and the us or even europe

    With concentrates its really about weather or not you can find everything you need in the one place. I think a lot of people
    shop OS because they have more of a selection. Its definitely worth checking out weather you can get what you need locally
    (and cheaper) first.

    This is one of the US sites some people here are using Gremlin DIY

    Also have a look around the UK or Europe. The AUD exchange rate is a bit better than it used to be and Royal Mail is reasonable shipping. I vote with the others though buy local if you can.

    Tom from the juicefactory will order in for you if you ask.

    Oh, Nicotine River in the US isn't too bad on pricing. FA for $3 to $4 for 10ml, under $10 for 30ml. The killer is the freight charges, and waiting for it.

    I'm using Hiliq for day to day, but the range is limited compared to FA...

    The Hiliq stuff is pretty good though, not too expensive and takes a couple days to get here from there. I'll be using them for pretty much everything day to day wise so it's not all doom and gloom.

    That said, they do make flavourings here in Japan, good ones. The culture wall* means I can't get at them, and this time it's a double wall which means I simply go OS to get what I want.

    Stu.

    *Culture wall is a term I use when the local custom/culture prevents normal people from accessing certain things they would otherwise have easy access to in any other country in the world. In the case of vaping, it means getting medical grade PG and VG because a food grade alternative isn't thought to be needed for normal folks, but medical wise, PG and VG have a market to the wider community. So medical grade it is, food grade is unobtanium. I can buy menthol crystals though, dead easy. But that's the limit for DIY here because the flavour makers don't think a normal person needs their products, so make no effort to make it available and the second link in the chain there also believe normal folks don't need access to flavours, pre-made is better, so that's what's available. Actually, it's probably a good idea as most of the normal population couldn't handle making their own flavour mixes and those who don't conform to the norms of society here have long since learned how to circumvent the culture wall, although it does get damned frustrating at times and idiotic at other times.
