Quitting smoking is possible!

You may think that quitting smoking is a total impossibility for you....

I'm going to tell you, that after 30 years of smoking cigarettes, not only is it possible, but I've been cigarette free for days (now over a year!), at the time of this writing!

Here are my LIVE current statistics:

I'd love for this blog to become one of the channels within your life, that you can turn to for support. You can't imagine how powerful just the slightest bit of encouragement can be!

Please follow this Blog and remember this quote:

Mark 10:27 - But Jesus looked at them and said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible."

Review: 4 eLiquids from Uno Vapor

Of all the things that I've been complimented on, my thoroughness and the ability to "tell it like it is" have been the most prominent.  I want you to understand this, before you read this review...

Today, I'll be reviewing 4 eLiquids from Uno Vapor.  Before I begin (and especially if this is your first time reading my reviews) I want you to understand my rating criteria.  Unlike some "website-magazines" that shall remain nameless, I don't require that vendors send me free stuff, so you can be sure that I'll give it to you straight...

Upcoming Reviews for July 2013

Far be it from me than to let anyone down, but I've been running into all sorts of issues/problems with 2 of the things that were at the top of my list for June...

I've been writing my reviews, but due to some issues, I've got nothing else this month.

The review for the SmokTech Octopus 2.0 is now officially on hold.  I've watched just about every video on YouTube regarding drippers, I've listened to everything everyone has ever said about drippers and I've used whatever personal knowledge that I have about drippers and there's a problem.  My experiences are NOT matching what I'm expecting.  I believe that this is the very nature of Science.  You can't learn anything from an experiment that goes well, you can only learn from your failures.  Suffice it to say, that I'm learning more than I anticipated.  So until I get to the bottom of some serious issues, this review is on hold.

Update 7/19/2013: Correction... This review is now UP, check it out HERE!

1. The review for the Sigelei Mechanical Mod #19 has taken as long as it's taken, because there are some design flaws with this mod.  I have overcome BOTH OF THEM, but it took a while because I was waiting for parts to come in from China AND I had to test them thoroughly.  You won't see any sanded down, chopped up, soldered or replaced screws, springs, nuts or bolts in my fix.  But still, I'm only now ready to write my review.  I should have it online early July.

Update 8/2013: The Sigelei #19 review is UP, check it out HERE!

2. The eLiquid from Uno Vapor has remained one of my stable, go to eLiquids for months.  This review is next up on my list.  It shouldn't take me too long, as I've been using it for so long.

Update 6/29/2013: The Uno Vapor review is UP, check it out HERE!

3. The 36 eLiquids from NicoPure Labs is also back on hold, until I get a properly functioning /properly performing dripper that doesn't cost $100.  If you're a "Dripper Guru", someone who knows how to get a dripper to really perform, I want to hear from you.  Please use the comment form at the right to contact me.  Apparently I don't know enough to do this by myself.  I say "apparently", because I've used every ounce of logic I possess and I still don't come up with anything even close to what I see some people doing in videos.  Either they're doing something they're not revealing (like vaping at .2ohms and using 8.4V, thereby destroying the flavor of their eLiquid) or I'm just not picking up on something that I should be able to.  If you think you can help me, please contact me.

Update 7/19/2013: Correction... This review is UP, check it out HERE!

4. Based on the hits to this Blog and the emails I've been receiving from my contact form, I'm considering doing a SECOND followup for the Kanger ProTank.  Apparently there's more that people want to know and there are more discoveries that I've made that I should share.  So look for that as part of the July 2013 offering.

5. On the heels of the ProTank, I've got a Kanger EVOD on its way.  Based on all of the reviews I've read and based on the design of the device, I can't help but wonder if the EVOD isn't just a less expensive alternative to the ProTank, with the same flavor/Vapor & performance!  If I'm right, move over Stardust, because the EVOD is THE CE4+ killer!  Again, look for this in July.

Update 7/18/2013: The Kanger EVOD review is UP, check it out HERE!

6. Something I should have reviewed ages ago, is the Stardust.  I'll be reviewing a CE4 & a CE5.  To be honest, I'm not particularly thrilled about it as I hate wasting money.  But what's a couple of dollars if it helps you to get away from the nasties, right?  ;)

7. If you have not yet done so, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, participate in our anonymous POLL.  It's for a really good cause!  And then after you've voted, please share it with every Vaper you can find.  I'd love to get a sample of at least 1,000 votes in the next 30 days.  Won't you help me?  :)

As you may be aware, I am getting ready to start concocting my very own eLiquid...

Whether or not I succeed is another story, but for now it behooves me to do a little bit of much needed market study.  It's my belief that other eLiquid makers don't spend enough time finding out what their customers are using NOW and their formulas suffer because of it.

I have some ideas as to what I believe people are using, but why leave it to chance?
What does it hurt to ask?

I tried to include as many modern devices as was sensible.  While I recognize that many of you use more than one kind of device, I would ask that you choose the one device that you use most often, or the device that you prefer to use most.

All votes are confidential, I don't receive any personally identifying information from it.
If you'd be so kind, would you mind choosing one of the following answers to help me out?

And if you choose "Something else", PLEASE let me know what other modern device you're using in the comments!


And when you're done, would you mind sharing this poll with other Vapers???
I'd be more than happy to share my results with the eLiquid making public at large!

Trust me, they need it more than I do...

eLiquid: Is flavor really subjective?

According to the "experts", what do you think the "dumbest animal" on earth is?

Dog?  Nope, you can train em...

Bird?  You've heard of "bird brains"?  Nope, you can train them too...
Octopus?  Nope. Those guys are crazy smart!
Donkey?  They may be stubborn, but they're no dummies...

The answer is:

Review: 5 eLiquids from Mount Baker Vapor

If you've been Vaping for more than a few months, you've probably heard someone refer to MBV, MtBakerVapor or Mount Baker Vapor.

I've heard the name repeatedly, but I've also heard it in reference to flavors I'd never go anywhere near.  Those of you who follow me, know that I keep away from peaches and mangoes and anything "perfumey" smelling....

Upcoming Reviews for June 2013 - Update 2

So yeah, umm, June 2013 is really shaping up to be a ridiculously busy month!

Upcoming Reviews:

1. 4 eLiquids from Uno Vapor

2. 4 eLiquids from Mount Baker Vapor

3. You're not going to believe me, but I swear it's true --> 36 eLiquids from NicoPure

**I still need to check the count on that though...
***Count confirmed, only one duplicate in the bunch...
****This one may not appear until July 2013 for obvious reasons...

4. I just checked and my SM2.0 will be here TODAY!  So there's that coming up...

Update 6/14/2013 - Ok, so just so we're clear....  This RDA is narrower than a U.S. Penny. I will NOT be reviewing this right now.  It's going into my gear box and it's going to have to wait for me to get out my microscope, so that I can build it.

5. The Sigelei Mechanical Mod #19 will be up soon too...

Update 8/23/2013: If by "soon", I meant "2 months later", then it's finally UP!  LOL  Catch the Sigelei #19 Review HERE!

6. Added 6/14/2013: Since I discovered that the SM2.0 is about the size of a standard drip-tip, I'll be reviewing the SmokTech Octopus instead!  No microscope required!

Update 8/23/2013: The SmokTech Octopus Review is finally UP!


If you appreciate what I'm doing here, you know what to do....

Review: 3 eLiquids from Alien Visions

UPDATE: Please participate in our anonymous POLL.  It's for a really good cause!

Even with the AVE website running amuck, Alien Visions is still managing to at least get some orders out the door. ^_^

In this review, I'm hoping to find out if Boba's Bounty is a fluke, or if Alien Visions actually has what it takes to be THE go-to guys for eLiquid.  In the spirit of full disclosure, one of these eLiquids is SOLD BY AVE, not made by them.

18650 & 18350 Battery Review

UPDATE: Please participate in our anonymous POLL.  It's for a really good cause!

So over the past few months, I've been conducting my own independent tests of a few different batteries for use with my eCigs.  There's a huge disparity of information out on the internet about "what's the best", so instead of concerning myself with "what's the best", I want to answer a different question...

Upcoming Reviews for June 2013 - Update

A couple of months ago, I mentioned that I was going to be doing an 18650/18350 Battery review.  Truth is, there's just too much misinformation out there regarding batteries.  Time permitting I should be able to get this one up by the end of this weekend.

Batteries being reviewed:

· Samsung ICR18650-26F (unprotected)
· Samsung ICR18650-30B (protected)
· TrustFire 18650 - 3000mAh (protected)
· EFest 18350 - 800mAh V2 (unprotected)

Update 6/8/2013 - The Battery Review is UP

Next, I'm still working on the Sigelei #19 review.  Out of the box, it leaves a little to be desired.  HOWEVER, I have a neat idea that I haven't seen anyone else try yet that MIGHT actually make this an awesome mod.  Keep your eyes peeled!

My 3 new eLiquids from Alien Visions are in the mail and on their way!  Does AVE have what it takes to make everything delicious, or is Boba's Bounty a fluke?

eLiquids being reviewed:

· Dreamberries
· Watermelon Overload
· Grape Vape

Update 6/11/2013 - The Alien Visions Review is UP

I decided that I needed an RDA (a dripping type of rebuildable atomizer) to be able to get all of the nuances of the different flavored eJuices that I'm reviewing.  I've got an SM2.0 (also referred to as an SM20) on its way from China, and I've got to tell you that I'm really looking forward to this build!  Can anything really taste any better than my Kanger Protank?  We'll just have to see!  I can confirm that it's on its way here and hopefully I'll have it in my hands by the end of this coming week!

Desperate for Boba's Bounty?

UPDATE: Please participate in our anonymous POLL.  It's for a really good cause!

As just about everyone who uses Boba's Bounty from Alien Visions knows, their online store has been closed (at this point) for about 3 weeks now.

Over the past 2 weeks, roughly HALF of all of the hits to this Blog are from people desperate to find anybody selling it.  Trust me, I've thought about having an eBay auction for the 30ml's of 18mg BB that's been steeping for the past 30 days.  So it's ready to go AND it's just sitting there, as I've been testing a lot of new eLiquids lately.  But I'm not going to...  LOL!

Kanger ProTank Review - Followup

UPDATE: Please participate in our anonymous POLL.  It's for a really good cause!

So a couple of weeks ago I wrote a glorious review of the Kanger ProTank.
Today I want to do a followup review, now that I've had more time to use it.

Sunday, June 2, 2013


Is it really too much to ask, for a quality made eLiquid with a STRONG and PRESENT flavor?  Is it really too much to ask for an eLiquid with a GOOD and LASTING flavor?  Is it really too much to ask for an eLiquid that is CONSISTENTLY and RELIABLY made?

Review: 3 eLiquids from Dekang

UPDATE: Please participate in our anonymous POLL.  It's for a really good cause!

So with a 2 out of 3 score against boutique eLiquid makers, I've decided to "import" 3 fruit flavored eLiquids directly from China.  I figured it would be an excellent test to see if maybe China can do something that we can't...
