- Anybody use them electronic ciggies?
Just to bring this back to the top, I’m nearly a year in now, still haven’t had a real fag & I’m loving it. I have stopped spending on new kit, but my quest for the best juice continues!Posted 4 years ago
Any of you tried Grant’s vanilla custard? I have ordered some tonight & here’s hoping it will be as good as the reviews, stay focused guys 🙂
It’s worked for me and the mrs, after many many attempts we got a couple of the Tornado ego-c mega twisty things three months ago and we’ve not had a cig since the day they arrived, not had a weak moment and I seem to have working lungs again..Posted 4 years ago
I’ve tried a few liquids and the Patriot range from Totally wicked seems to be the nicest, I started on 24mg, went down to 18mg and now on 14mg, orange cream, lemonade, grape, strawberry kiwi, orange candy and lemon anise are nice, pina colada and dark chocolate flavour are rank.. 🙁
The mrs has gone nuts for em, she bought a posh thing for £100 last night 😯 but at least I’ll inherit her battery’s..
The hardest part was getting my head round not going outside for a smoke, we didn’t smoke in the house anyway and sitting in the lounge puffing away felt weird, and it looks like a crack pipe when I’ve got the glass bongy looking bit on the end..
But all in all it’s been a great success.. 😀
I made enquiries about Grant’s vanilla custard when people started raving about it 12 months ago, but at that time he was just doing it via email and paypal gift type transaction, so didn’t pursue. I’ve settled with Decadent Vapours. I passed my 1 year mark in September.
dark chocolate flavour are rank
Yeah me too, rather than throwing it, you could try blending it with some orange, coconut, banana or something similar.Posted 4 years ago
Never thought of that, I’ve just put a bit in some melon flavour that wasn’t unpleasant but was lacking a certain something, done a 75/25 melon/chocolate mix and it’s lovely 😀Posted 4 years ago
I tried to buy some Grants vanilla custard but it seems to be impossible to join the website and buy some..
I’ve been using them for almost 5 years now (in March)
I mix my own juice so I can pick how strong it is. Half the time I’m on 0% Nicotine now so don’t really see any need to give it up really.
I don’t see the small amount of nicotine I’m getting as a problem health wise, As long as I never have another cigarette I’m happy.Posted 4 years ago
I’m curious … do any of you expect to give up e-cigs or just carry on as you are?
I haven’t thought about it really…I use it a lot less over time. At the beginning, the thing was never out of my hands. I think the novelty of it was great. I’m a bit sick of always having to drag chargers and batteries around with me though and running out of liquid (even though, luckily in Brizzle, there are a few high street options for when I’ve run out of Decadent Vapour’s stuff).
I’m waiting to hear a health scare about inhaling the vapours – but I have no problem with being a long term nicotine user – I’d rather not of course, but as drugs go, it’s not one of the bad ones.
So, I’m hoping my usage will continue to decline, but I’m not thinking about it too much. It’s nice to be able to have a smoke without shivering my arse off outside, stinking of fags or having my clothes stink.
I don’t tend to use them in pubs as it still “looks” like you’re smoking and a lot of non-smokers don’t really like to see smokers enjoying themselves relatively safely. 😀Posted 4 years ago
c_g I’m not sure where it will go for me. I’ve reduced my vaping over last 12 months and reduced the nicotine mgs. I’m now just vaping before bedtime, maybe a bit in the evening and bedtime if I’m having a beer. However, I think I will always be a smoker, so therefore to combat it, I will always be a vaper (to some degree or other).Posted 4 years ago
I managed to get some Grant’s vanilla custard & I can’t work out what the fuss is about, it’s ok, but to my tastes not great.Posted 4 years ago
Re the batteries, for me the Ego twist works, I get a working day out of a 850mah, but at home I use the Provari mini for which I have 2 batteries it’s not a problem. But if I do go away then I have three Ego’s & a spare charger in the car, I’m a boy scout me 😉
Genuine question, what does a Provari Mini give you (at £160+) that a couple of Ego batteries don’t (£20?)
I’ve never bothered with the expensive big battery stuff as my Ego batteries have never let me down, and with Low Resistance Cartomisers, I don’t need higher voltages.Posted 4 years ago
I dunno, my Ego Twist lasts all day on an overnight charge, so does the mrs’s..Posted 4 years ago
The BIL’ got one that cost £140 though I don’t know what it is, it just looks ‘bigger’ but when I had a go it seemed the same as mine really, maybe a bit more smoke and flavour but no huge difference,
The mrs has just got one for £100, and I’m curious to see what the difference is when it turns up..
I’ve got 3 x 650mah and 1 x 1000mah(might be 950mah or 1100mah) Ego. I don’t consider myself a big user, but I’m vaping most evenings on a clearo. I find my life does seem to revolve around charging batteries.Posted 4 years ago
Is there some sort of big battery pack you can buy? I was aware you could plug your clearo directly into a USB cable, which might be an option.

The simple answer is nothing, unfortunately 🙁
I would love to wax lyrical about how it’s the best vape ever, but in reality it brings no more to the table than an Ego twist, yes it’s better built, yes it looks kind of bling (or not as the case may be) but in terms of performance it just lets me vape at a variable voltage.
PS, if you really don’t care about the size then try a Innokin itaste MVP, a whole weeks worth of vaping in a very un-handy box 🙂

Gave up smoking last Stopober, it was easy as these are in many ways better and more convenient than smokingPosted 4 years ago
Now totally addicted to my ego ‘Fagatron’
Problem is you can smoke in the, in bed, in the office….
Need to cut down soon 😮
I buy mine from online Vapeland, I probably keep them in business as always losing or breaking mine !

Size is more important to me really. The Ego battery lasts all day and it goes on charge at night with my phone.
I can see how it could be an advantage to some people though.
When I first started the only batteries that were available were the crap “cigarette lookalikes” and you needed half a dozen with you plus a charger just to go to work !Posted 4 years ago
I’m using 1100mah eGo Twist variable voltage batteries with a combination of FAA adjustable airflow and Protank clearomisers – down to 6mg nicotine after 6 months and only use VG liquid, not PG. Blueberry is my favourite.
I also sell them.
Just waiting for these beauties to come in….
Not going to put my business name on here, but if the Mods still feel this post is against the rules, please feel free to removePosted 4 years ago
The mrs’s new one has turned up, it’s an E-electron-S thing, it’s bigger than an Ego-twist with a bigger tank and battery (16650 Sanyo thing) and looks to have a better build quality, but it doesn’t seem any better to use, if anything it doesn’t seem to give as much of a hit.. Though spare battery’s are a lot cheaper..Posted 4 years ago
I think I’ll stick with my Twister, speshly now I’ve got two spare battery’s and heads…
I am currently using a starter kit from cloudcig.co.uk/ but looking to change to something that I can use with eliquid, anyone got any ideas?
Your cheapest and simplest option is something along the lines of this (generic image)…
Around £15 in shops where you’ll generally get some good advice and someone taking time to show you how to use them and discuss your options, or less from a dodgy market stall. The battery is quite low capacity (650mah) and the heads are disposable, once the wick burns out.
For the price of an extra couple of packs of fags, upgrading to something like this makes the world of difference to your ‘vaping’ experience…
An 1100mah variable voltage Twist battery (cranking up the voltage really does make a difference to the amount of vapour) and a quality tank with replaceable wicks/coils (£2-£2.50 a time). This one has adjustable airflow too.
Nicotine strengths in the juice vary from 0mg to 36mg (no-one on earth actually ‘needs’ 36mg) – I recommend heavy smokers a 24mg, medium users anywhere between 11mg and 18mg dependant on what they tell me about their smoking habits – and 6mg for casual smokers. I’m down to 6mg myself in 6 months, from smoking 20 B&H a day.
Also, the juice comes in PG – Propyl Glycerol and VG – Vegetable Glycerine, for the base liquid – I recommend VG, as it gives a better vapour, a sweeter taste and is less harsh on the throat.Posted 4 years ago
I find the consistency varies sometimes with flavours too – lower mg strengths seem to be thinner as well.
That’s an FAA Tank made exclusively by my supplier – they’ve just switched the design to bottom coil, so only a tiny wick – and has adjustable airflow to control the amount of vapour.
There’s a few similar out there though – Protanks (Kanger and various copies), I30’s (Innokin), VIVI Nova’s etc.Posted 4 years ago
The shop has only been up and running a few weeks (had another one previously – long story/business partner/greedy/fallout) and not really rushed to get a website to be honest as the online market is flooded, so in a buck to current retail trends, focus more on local area sales – all over Facebook though.
Don’t feel too comfortable talking shop on here, as it’s though I’m touting for business. Will throw a few coppers the way of STW towers as a goodwill gesture anyhow
Anyway – will email you.Posted 4 years ago
Oddly enough, in the last few weeks two shops have opened up near me in York when previously (for years) there was only a small concession in an old school tobacconist shop.
For a business that’s pretty much been 100% online for the last six years (that I’ve known it) it’s great to see it moving to proper shops.Posted 4 years ago
I think I’d have to pay a fortune for Google Ad Words to even be noticed – and even then, doubt I’d be able to compete with the big players.
It makes a nice little business though, especially as a sideline – I don’t expect to get rich from it, but do hope to expand at some point.
As an aside – anyone who needs a little business venture, I’d be more than willing to point them in the right direction – as long as they aren’t on my doorstep 😉Posted 4 years ago
I’m working tonight on the motorways but will try and get back to you guys tomorrow.
Just for the record, I emailed Stw office earlier today and mentioned how this thread had developed and asked for details to make a donation.
Not sure how I should conduct any further replies, but for now I won’t give any more details of what I sell in this thread.

Evening all. I thought I’d resurrect this thread to see how everyone’s getting on? And obviously, with it being new year, if anyone else has binned the evil weed
After mouthing vague and unconvincing platitudes about doing so for ages, I dug the Tornado-T out, got some more liquid, and I’ve now not had a fag for 5 weeks. Yay for me! 🙂 More importantly, is that I find the thought of having an actual cig pretty disgusting. Even when I ‘be had a beer.
How’s everyone else getting onPosted 4 years ago
