    Funny how things change from one day to the next...

    I wrote a few days ago how I seemed to get a real a 'hayfever-like' attack, & immediately thought, as a newbie to all this, that it was a reaction to either the flavourings/the PG/the Nic - or whatever.

    Took some advice & mixed up new batches with more VG - it improved the sneezes/coughing/dry throat, so I thought, yay- I'm on a winner.

    But, lol, by the next couple of days everything just seemed so bland & unsatisfying.
    So now I have just gone back to my original mix of half nic juice & half flavoured juice, both at 80%PG 20% VG - & oh wow - it is so much more satisfying.

    But just you wait - I'm sure in a couple of more days I'll be back here saying I've changed my mind again & found a better combo!
    Wow - its a learning curve, isn't it!! And changing all the time, it seems to me. I guess some time in the future I'll settle on something that really suits me over a long period of time...but meanwhile - more $$$ spent & more money in Aus Post's coffers whilst I try to find exactly what suits me (but like I keep telling hubby, its a fraction of what I spent on smokes)

    I really think now that what I had was just a coincidental attack of hayfever...

    Keep at it.. The reward is great when you finally have yourself 'settled' into a 'setup' that suits.

    It certainly is a learning curve - I was suddenly starting to get a little jittery/anxious a couple days ago (the latter for no external reason) - thought it was not enough vaping/too much vaping/PG/juice type etc. etc. - for me it turned out to be coffee; more specifically - caffeine. I was consuming coffee at the same level I was while smoking, so I tried dialing my caffeine intake back a bit and things have improved.

    I cant drink coffee either cause it makes me jittery. I gave up coffee years ago when i realized at morning tea time a coffee and a cigarette made my heart race. So I gave up the coffee.

    I'm still messing about with juices trying to find exactly what suits me - and I've been vaping for about 18 months. But TBH, it just keeps changing. Some juices taste better with more vg, some with less - and I still have periods where my taste buds go on strike and nothing seems to appeal. And my mood also extends to hardware - no idea why, but different mods appeal to me at different times. But I enjoy the whole process - and yes I've gone through lots and lots of mods ( I think i hold the record number of mods used on AV) but I've still saved a lot (at least $4000) in 18 months than what I would have spent on ciggies - so I don't give a toss.
    Now I'm not advocating becoming a mod junkie by any means - but don't you think that it's kinda fun to have different choices? I don't spend much on clothes or shoes (letting us women down there I know lol) but I do like to spend on vaping gear.

    found it interesting that huangsen juice on an ego C ..
    apple is useable at up to 4.7v consistently, yet the tobacco tastes burnt over 4.3.

    and I really liked both of them till 2 days ago and now I wish I had the dekangs that I ordered instead of these. At least if I got sick of them it was my fault, vendor boo boo sending me something I didn't ask for and now I think there is something missing in these that I like in the dekangs.
    In order of useful: Provari V2 and V1, vamo, eGo twist, Katana v3, Hex, Orion v2, LavaTube, eGo x 6, VMAX, 510N, Tick V2, Tick V1, noEgo 18650, noEgo 14650 , Indulgence x 2, 905 6v mod, KR808D

    I find different atties/cartos, of the same resistance, vaped at the same volts, like to vape the same flavor juice with different levels of PG/VG.
    Like for instance, a Boge carto is best at 20%VG while a Smok DC carto prefers 30% VG(with extra flavor concentrate to make up for the muted taste from the VG). Both of these are very similar in design,apart from the 2 coils on the DC but otherwise share a similar type of filler etc.

    The trick is to find what device & carto/atty combo you like to use the best & then find the juice that vapes the best for your preference on that set up.
    Any change to the variables, PV, carto, atty, voltage, resistance, nic strength, % of flavor , can all change the ratio of PG/VG you will like when vaping.

    I had a strange reaction too when I first started. Couldn't taste anything, very dry mouth, my tongue felt numb, sore burnt like throat feeling. I was using an ego-t system with an atomizer. I order some tanks with cartos and it was light night and day. I don't use the tanks any longer because I decided to try Boge 510 LR cartomizers and I love them. You have to fill them more of course but it's not that big of a deal for me.

    One thing I have noticed though is that my taste changes according to whatever I'm drinking. I'm from the Southern part of USA originally and I have to have my sweet iced tea but sadly when I drink iced tea and vape, it gives me dry mouth. When I drink Cola and vape I don't have that same problem. I vape menthol for the most part. I am strange I guess. I mix all kinds of stuff together in my carto at one time..haha. I have HC slims (like Virginia Slims Menthol) and HC B&H gold and silver (both 18mg). I mix them down to get about 9mg. I mix them 50/50 in half the bottle then I add strawberry 0 nic to fill the rest of the bottle. I add a drop or 2 of other flavors in there to give me a hit of something different if I get bored. I wish one flavor would work for me but after trial and error I'm not complaining atm so I guess whatever works.

    Hope your all better now. Stupid Flu has been going around here in Tassie.

    Alisa, I am going to assume you use the standard length Boges, so if you want to reduce the amount of filling you need to do with them, then get one of these:
    4.5ml Colored DCT Tube for 35mm Cartomizers
    This is the 6ml version for use with XL cartos:
    6ML Colored 510 DCT (Dual Coil Tank) Cartomizer MOD(1.5/2.0ohm)

    I use the XL Boges in a 6ml version of that tank & it is awesome not having to fill it constantly. The tanks also seem to prolong the life of the cartos because the carto is constantly wet & doesn't get to the stage where it is dry & needs to be filled.
    You will also need to punch or slot holes into your Boges, VapeKing has an easy to use one here:
    Stainless Steel Carto Punch V2

    Hope this was helpful
