    I tote one around everyday after having kicked the greater of two evils. Anyone else? I bet someone has a cool contraption or flavor to share.

    I been using them for a little over a year. However I went completely high tech with them. Here's a few of my set-ups. As far as juice goes blueberry bubblegum from Ms T's Bakery & Antidote from Rawr Vapor are some of my favorites.

    I am also vaping for more than a year.
    Tried a lot of stuff but my favorite remains to be DCT and Ego C.
    According to flavors of liquids, I stopped liking tobacco soon after starting vaping and went to fruit flavors.
    Current battery mod is Lavatube.

    I used to use tanks until I found the VapeMate juice feeder - hits like you can't believe!

    Not at all what I expected! All the e-cigs that I have seen, look just like a regular cigarette.

    Nice goosefacer. How big is that contraption? We don't really have a frame of reference in the pic.

    I'd love to get a home setup like that and just take my v2s in the car, on the go, etc.

    It's definitely not small but doesn't ride too bad in a pocket when walking around - but you better take it out before you try sitting down! I want to upgrade the PV but the OMG has been doing a great job - might get a smaller PV to take on the go. Here is it compared to a normal Bic lighter.

    I have a couple friends who use these, a couple of their rigs are pretty awesome looking like some here. I do like them and all the different flavors, used to love a nice shisha blend in a hookah myself.
    Point of this post, do these retain any of the cigarette negatives?

    The one that I am sure is the nicotine. Which actually is not the problem in the normal cigarettes.
    The only thing that I am concerned is if this steam we put in our lungs is somehow also bad.

    Hey, come on.
    I thought that here we are smart folks that think different...
    There are thousands of paid articles for those bad and dangerous ecigs. Guess who is not happy with so many people switching to them.
    Every battery on random device could eventually explode if not used properly.

    I know someone who lost a few fingers too one, which is why I totally hate the idea. The person did not misuse them, just a random occurance :(

    Though I'm sure there's opposition, I'm surprised that none of the major tobacco manufacturers have jumped on the bandwagon. You'd think with the shelf space they command that we'd already have Camel/Marb VitaCigs in every shop. No doubt it comes down to downpayment in R&D and manufacturing but seems like there's plenty of cottage industry eCig manufacturers about that would be interested in early retirement.

    When I used to vape (Joye 510, nothing fancy) I used a juice made in Britain, EcoPure, since most other juices at the time* were made in China. Call me paranoid, but China's manufacturing oversight has had a poor track record over the past decade, so I thought I'd buy from a country that at least has some consumer protections in place.

    I so desperately wanted a ProVari, but they're just. So. :censored: Huge.
    And expensive.

    I think that tobacco industry will not be that stupid to play so obvious and say anything officially.
    Instead they do what we read now and then for the dangerous ecigs. Untill they find better solution.
    Also there are countries where they know the right guys and there ecigs are illegal more or less.

    @Fabregas485
    I am really sorry for your friend but such extraordinary incidents may happen with many different battery powered devices.

    Those are some nice setups you guys have. I vape a cheap KGO w/Stardust Clearomizer. I've tried a bunch of flavors but I like banana, vanilla, and coconut the best.

    I did a little research that I should have done before asking. The only thing I've found is that one of, I think five ingredients that's harmful is Diethylene Glycol. The stuff in antifreeze that kills the poor animals that inhumane :censored: put out. Gonna have to research it to see if it's harmful through inhalation or just liquid consumption.
