Currently using an eGo-C Upgrade 1000mah USB pass-thru setup with SmokTech 6ml UDCT. Looking at picking up a Provari for the wife and I as our long-term vape sticks.

All juices I vape are 4 ingredients: VG, PG, flavoring and nicotine (18-24mg). I mostly vape menthol, though. No colors, water, etc. Looking to start home-mixing pretty soon.

Provaris are nice but you can get devices that are just as good for quite abit cheaper mate. have a look at the itaste svd.

my juices are 50/50 pg vg at the moment but im trying to find some good 100% vg juice but i might end up having to mix my own

What exactly is vaping? I get that's it some kind of e-cig thing, but, can anyone give a brief explanation of the pros and cons?

basically e-cigs have a coil heating element that heats up the liquid which creates vapour. so that's where the name vaping comes from like smoking is the act of inhaling smoke we inhale vapour.

the pros are that there is only 4 ingredients propylene glycol (pg), vegetable glycerine (vg), nicotine and food flavourings. so there are no dangerous chemicals like carcinogens or cyanide in the vapour. its basically a reduced harm alternative to tobacco smoking.

as far as cons go there hasnt really been any proper long term tests to see what harm they could possibly do. some people can have bad reactions to the pg (mainly diabetics due to it being related to glucose) but its not very common and you can get juices with no pg in them.

i hope that answered your question

Pretty good information there! What's the advantages to your own vapor setups over buying e-cigs?

Im guessing by e-cigs you mean the ones that look like cigarettes?

Mostly its better battery life from our own setups and vastly improved flavour and nicotine absorption. But also in my opinion and a few others too its the disassociation from tobacco cigarettes. Think of it this way... You want to give up smoking but yet you use something that looks almost exactly like a cigarette... It just defeats the point imo

Well my vamo v5 turned up at work yesterday and I got my hands on it today.

Charged the small batteries up that came with it and it is bigger than I thought it would be.

Feels really well made and quite heavy, could probably do some damage if used to hit someone round the head with it.

Only issue is that if I use it at anything above 3v it burns the back of my throat and has a burnt liquid taste.

Up to now, not overly impressed as it's not giving any more vapor or taste to the liquid compared to the standard battery that comes, with the E-Cig kits from scan.
