    Hi All,

    Puck, I'm new here!

    I've been (am) a smoker since I was around 13, some 53 years ago.... you do the math.
    I have tried "cold turkey", cutting down, patches and champix(?????). Nothing worked, not even a heart attack!!!!!!

    Back around August 2017 the wife purchased a Shisha pen and some e-juice (no nic). She put it aside and forgot about it.
    I found it in November and gave it a try .... not bad ... That started me on my current path to be smoke free, notice I did not say NIC FREE.

    I knew nic was available in NZ, but my wife's cousin said try Hiliq which I did. Great turn around time but the freight is a bit steep, not to worry.

    I have ordered 4 MODs from E-bay (still waiting on 3 to arrive). I'm using an E-Leaf Pico with a 4ml tank.
    I have also ordered spare Coils and tanks, even a couple of 2ml tanks to try my "home brews" without flavour contamination.

    I have got my daughter to have a go at Vaping. She has ordered her stuff from NZ. I hope it works for her.

And then unflavoured came along, and thats pretty much where ive been for over 2.5 of my nearly 3 years of vaping. Its just nicotine, PG and VG. Many have been converted to t he lords juice, and added bonus its the cheapest way to vape - for me less than $0.70 a week to vape....thats cents
    I’m very interested in this, do you have a howto (mix ratios, equipment needed etc) and whereto buy guide somewhere?

    Is 50/50 Vg/Pg a good place to start with 100mg Nic?
    Istick pico melo 3 mini 75w using regular 0.3/0.5 ohm heads, considering getting 0.75ohm ECML for mtl.

    Cheers, LHB

    That's a pretty good start Puck. The Pico is a good mod, you might just have to play around with what goes on top until you find your sweet spot. You might have noticed just about all of these tanks are interchangeable.

    Yes, 50/50 is fine to start with for mouth to lung vaping (the higher ohm coils). If you like to run the lower ohm coils and higher watts you might need to use more VG, Like 30/70 PG/VG.

    You don't need much equipment to mix unflavoured: Some PG, some VG, a bottle, some syringes to measure it all with, and some 100mg/ml nicotine in PG.

    Say you are mixing up 10ml of unflavoured at 50/50 and you want 12mg/ml

    5ml of VG
    1.2ml of 100mg/ml nicotine
    3.8ml of PG (because you just count the nic in PG as part of the PG half.

    You can scale these recipes up easily.

    The best syringes to use are the smallest one that will be able to perform each measurement in one shot. Common sizes are 1ml, 2.5ml, 5ml, 10ml and so on.

    Thanks fabricator4.

    I ordered the stuff! They were out of the bigger volume vg and pg 100%s, so I chose 50/50 in one bottle and 100mg PG.

    Can’t wait for everything to arrive so I can give the bag of tabacco I have away.
