I appreciate people that use these instead, but I hate the stands in malls with employees smoking these acting like they are cool.

Also, these are advanced devices. There are plenty of good models that are the same size and shape of a cigarette, so don't let my alien looking gear scare off any potential vapers. I've made it my goal to help prevent as much cancer as possible here! Big smile A full scientific study has just been completed proving that there is no risk for cancer, or other similar health issues with vaping, BUT there is still the possibility of allergies and other side effects to different kinds of juices. For example juice is made out of propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin, or most commonly, a mixture of both. I have a VG sensitivity, so I can't use higher than a 70%/30% ratio of PG to VG without getting congestion, but for the most part vaping is a safe alternative to smoking, that feels similar(but better), without the nasty side effects, it CAN be a lot cheaper(not if you're a collector like me hehe) and it's more fun, tastes and smells better (including you no longer smelling like a month old ash tray) and is just downright AWESOME!

I'm not sure if any of you guys would remember this, with the exception of MAYBE any PBCer's, but for a little over 2 years now i've been using "ecigs". This has turned into a full blown hobby for me now with some of the crazy stuff I have. A few pics:

Top one is an Altsmoke Silver Bullet with a kick (A kick is a tiny device the diameter of the battery that makes it a Variable Wattage unit), the middle is a white Provari with a rebuildable atomizer(the part that vaporizes the liquid) and the bottom one is a Golden Greek (never noticed until just now I wrote Golden Green) Telescopic Battery, which is all mechanical (has no wires) and is made in, you guessed it, Greece.


My rebuildable atomizer


What it looks like under the hood. A piece of stainless steel mesh is rolled up into a very tight tube, oxidized with a torch to prevent it from conducting electricity, and then wrapped with Kanthal resistance heating wire to make the vapor.

As you can tell it's become a sort of obsession of mine, and in these pics alone is about $430 worth of random stuff, with PLENTY more juice, parts and other devices where that came from. Any other vapers here? Or smokers who don't want to be smokers anymore? If so, let me know and I can help you get setup if you're looking to quit!

Late edit: Please note, that having an electronic cigarette kit, is NOT the same as having a high quality kit. I've talked to countless people that have told me they tried them out and they didn't work well. I've let plenty of them use one of my setups and they were blown away at not only how well they work, but how much BETTER they are than smoking. Don't let a crummy ecig turn you away from saving your own life, talk to me about a GOOD kit.
