    In order of preference:

    -30 PG/70 VG
    -100% VG
    -50-50

    PG leaves my mouth and throat very dry but I enjoy the fact that it's tasteless. VG is really sweet and it changes the taste a lot but it's the only way to go for me or I feel like there's some tumbleweeds rolling in my mouth...:(

    I have read about PG vs VG and understand the differences.

    I'm just wondering how people come by the ratios.

    Do you buy different types of ejuice - one PG and one VG - of the same flavor and mix to correct solution?

    Lots of people just buy pure VG and pure PG and make their own juices by mixing in flavoring. Or you can check certain sites and they'll have lots of ratios for you to choose from. I like a higher VG content because I'm a fan of lots of vapor and flavor.

    Duh. Thought of that after I posted.

    Like soda. Mix flavoring with soda water. Makes sense.

    So, people buy nicotine and mix in with their juice. Makes sense as well.

    This caught my eye in his list of videos. I do not 'vape' right now at all, but I've been meaning to get into it. The pipe form factor really appeals to me and this guy who seems to have lots of experience basically just gave it a 10/10.

    Two hundred bucks for a full setup is steep, but again I haven't ever bought any vape stuff. Looking around at threads online it's clear anyone who vapes easily passes that amount trying all sorts of different batteries and tanks and what not. If I could spend $235 one time for something I like this much aesthetically and that supposedly works that well... I'm considering it...

    Go for it! I know I've probably spent $200 or more and not been fully happy until recently with my vape gear. The saying "Buy once, cry once" rings true once again.

    Some sites offer broad selection of PG/VG mixes (one such here LINK), and others, fewer choices.
    Same experience. Perhaps you've shed some light on the issue for me. :) Wasn't sure if was due to PG/VG mix or if I was cranking the power up too high on the eGo twist battery.

    Another question related to ejuices. Thoughts on US-made juices using US-ingredients vs. China? Please don't construe question as China-bashing. It's not. I think a legitimate consideration given the manner in which they're used (ingested). I've noticed that some online vendors disclose their ingredient source while others are silent.

    Ive an Evic from Joyetech with a Kanger Protank but I keep having to replace my atomizers, almost every other day i get 'no atomizer found' if i replace the coil it works again but I dont think I should be burning through these (no, well maybe some, pun intended)?

    That does seem excessive based on my own experience with ProTank set-up (and what I've been told and read about replacement frequency; granted, it's impacted by usage, but still ...).

    Sounds to me you might be using some 1,8 ohms atty with a too high voltage. I'm on my third week with my 2,5 ohms. Try to lower the voltage a bit or get higher ohms atty...

    I REALLY want a pipe. There are quite a few makers out there. Been wanting one from epipemods. I think you should go for it. :)

    Hmm... it's looking fine. Can you try your Protank on another device?

    today I received my second GLV mod, first one is a super mini that's just awesome, I ordered another this one is a GLV2, it uses two rcr123's and vapes at 5 volts.
    I'm using a boge carto at 2.0 ohms and I can't believe the amazing vape it produces, great flavor too. I hope to post a picture soon because it's color scheme is something special. the lower part of the mod is green that fades into black, I bought a box of black cartos for it and now I'm looking at a drip tip to match the mod.
    I love cherry Ming tips and they have a green one that should work great for a color match.
