The Vape Update

Howdy Folks,

First off I’ve been hella busy this past week and it ain’t over yet, just got in after a long day but can’t say I’m not grateful for the work. Thank the Gang for keeping things going here.

And yes I’m still vaping and haven’t touched a “real smoke” going on 26 months.

Had a little accident this week, I left my vape gear on the roof of my car and drove off. Long story but not so sad as the gear was essentially a “freebie”. The Vape store I use (180 Smoke) has a points system and most of what I lost didn’t cost me anything to begin with.

However I did need a new rig in a hurry and decided to splurge on this beauty, the VGOD Pro 150.

Had my eye on this for a long time. Got the stainless steel one and a nice discount with my points.

I must say I am impressed, Thanks good old American know how.

It’s by far the best gear I have owned and I swear outputs a more controlled even charge when in Watt mode than any rig I have owned. It may be due to chip quality as they do offer such features as “Ramping” which allows you to set the temp changes as if on a bar graph over a period of time – but that’s too complicated for me to care about, I’m just a Watt guy. The black VGOD LCD in the pic above has the “Ramping” feature on display, either that or it’s telling you you’re on fire, I’m no expert.

I swear, with the VGOD the e-juice is more fragrant and the taste is improved and I’m using the same Aspire Cleito tank as before. Currently I’m diggin Big Boy Vape’s Big Explosion juice. All in all I’m very happy to date, it’s pricey compared to a lot of competitors but worth it.

For some “expert” opinion on the VGOD watch this review.

    Not to rain on your parade Blaze but this is the news that’s really starting to do the rounds. It’s not one of those stupid BBQs cause cancer things, it’s real.

    • Thanks I will keep an eye on that.

      I have come to disbelieve everything put out by the American Lung Association as well as the American Cancer Society when it comes to anything to do with air quality and cancer risks.
      Nothing is potentially as safe as abstinence, but vaping is miles ahead of smoking.

      • Miss Trixie

        I agree. I’m coming up on 5 years smober in November and vaping was a BIG help.

    • shasta

      Really old news making a come back is more like it. The dangers of diacetyl in some vaping flavours was known years ago and it is easy enough to avoid. The American Lung Assn. is in the pocket of the pharmaceutical industry and is doing their bidding.

    Good on you Cat Man.
    Vaping saves lives.

    • Danke!

        …and stay healthy, Cat!

      I believe what you say, DbN, but the media cartel hates e-cigarettes. The only safe drug out there, according to the media, is marijuanna. Lot’s of it.

    living on the wet coast you get used to seeing huge clouds of smoke coming from the occasional car, and with vapers its the same excepy the cloud doesn’t rise ,it sinks to the pavement like a waterfall.it will take some getting used to..

    • Leaves a film on car windows as well!

      • Micky C.

        The TV and computer screen, and I’m always wiping film from my glasses as well.

      • Justin St.Denis

        I did not know that. Any residual odours?

  • Miss Trixie

    • Thanks!

      • Justin St.Denis

        Oh yeah, I for got to congratulate you on this, BCF! Good going, dude! I was seriously hooked on Camel Lights back in the day. Took me years to quit. This was before vaping. Finally got off ’em, though. 😉

  • Ho Hum

    Congrats on being smoke free for 26 months. I quit smoking about 15 years ago and of course we didn’t have vaping back then. For about two years I spent a small fortune on Nicorette gum but eventually any craving I had for nicotine completely disappeared and I do not miss smoking today.

    • That is great news!

    • Miss Trixie
    • Justin St.Denis

      The Nicorette gum did fuck all for me except for make me chew gum every waking hour of the day. I quit by switching to lighter cigarettes until – in the end – I was buying Viscount Lights! You actually need a poultice on the back of your neck to get any smoke outta those things. Then one day, upon emerging from a subway station and pausing to light up, I realized that these cigarettes were bloody stupid and simply not worth it. I tossed the rest of the pack into a trash can and never lit up again. Well, not a cigarette, anyway…… 😉

    Looks like a nice bit of kit, but boy I can’t see the need for 150 watts. I’m still using my old mods from about 4 or 5 years ago – 15 watts max. and I rarely get up to 10 watts. I’m hoping that they will last until my stash of nicotine runs out in a couple years! Then I can quit.

    • It is nice, I need that throat hit so higher wattage it is.

  • Micky C.

    Been going on 18 months for me since I’ve had a smoke, and I go to 180 Smoke too.

    • Glad to hear it, It’s a good store, especially for beginners.

  • No pleasure is greater than not smoking at all. Not depending on any gadget or substance. Being free and breathing freely, And guess what – it costs nothing. All it requires is a little bit of willpower for a while. After that you wonder how you ever could smoke.
