If you overheat anything you will get nasty chemicals.

This test is not recent news. They overheated the e-liquid.



"They discovered that when vaping 3 milligrams of liquid at high voltage"


"to temperatures reached by commercially available e-cigarettes operating at high voltage"


"At low voltage (3.3 V), we did not detect the formation of any formaldehyde-releasing agents (estimated limit of detection, approximately 0.1 μg per 10 puffs). At high voltage (5.0 V), a mean (±SE) of 380±90 μg per sample (10 puffs) of formaldehyde was detected as formaldehyde-releasing agents"

My point is; who vapes at high voltages?

The e-liquid would taste burnt. Burnt=Bad. It's like burning a piece of toast......it makes it carcinogenic.

The very word "vaping" implies no burning.

Kayfun 4 just been released. Not keen on the shape if I'm honest but it has many new features.

You better skip this one, Oli. Let me point some of the "features"
- it's heavy
- too many parts, most of them involved in Kong-fu movement
-insatiable liquid evaporator ( I doubled the quantity of liquid per day)
-pointless liquid control( good for refill only, you close the liquid, fill it, open liquid)
-fiddling air control
-better flavour :thumb:
-more vapour ( if the air is all the way open,but it's like you vape a pipe with 20 mm diameter)
-expensive
The first impression is positive, but I think is placebo. You think it's better, but if you return after couple of days to the kay lite plus, you have a revelation. Kayfun lite plus, gives you overall,a better vaping experience.

Note that I do not have the original. Guys who bought the original, said it's not worth the money.

Great info cheers. I was going to dismiss it based on the looks! And yes it does appear to be overly complicated. Bit tacky now.

I think ill be getting a mini Kayfun in near future. I tried all the mini kangertech stuff and the taste is nowhere near as good as a Kayfun. My Kayfun lite plus is still going strong.

I just got back home from a meeting with some fellows from my town. It's the second one this year, and for the first time, I was there. We had some e-liquids for testing, 70 flavours, to be more precise, and it was great. Can't wait for the next one!
Cheers!

That's cool Stefan! I was gonna visit Vapefest in the UK but it was too far away.

So did you just direct drip into your Kayfun to test the flavours? I heard you can just unscrew the chimney and put a couple of drops in?

Did you discover any nice new flavours?

Looks like nearly everyone there is using a rebuildable! :)

I wish there was a Kayfun where you could actually buy the coils though....it's one thing I really hate doing. It doesn't even take long it just annoys me! :lol:

Currently vaping my own mix of Blackcurrant and Strawberry. Makes a change from the Blackcurrant and Grape I normally make. I have to mix flavours up occasionally as my tastebuds get used to them.

I've been using Inawera flavour concentrates for the past few months, they're really quite nice!

Cheers Oli! Yeah, you can use kayfun with just the chimney, but we had dripping atomizers (most of us) for testing all those flavours. I gave up, after changing the wicks for like five times. Everyone had their favourite flavour, but it was so hard to feel anything after 10 different flavours. I was hunting for the perfect tobacco flavor, but again, nothing came close to the one I'm using for a year now. It's called Ace N1 from ecig.eu. Actually, I found ecig flavours to be the best for me. By the way, "ecig" is a brand from Greece, not the abbreviation from the "electronic cigarette". I tried brands like Twisted, John Smith`s Tabacco, FlavourArt, Perfumers Apprentice. I'm yet to try Inawera. It's so hard to recommend a flavour, because choosing the right flavour is so subjective for each individual. We had like two "Bambies" with us, and it was so refreshing to see their interest in everything they touched and tasted.
If I have to recommend you something, I would say go for Twisted, knowing what you like to vape. They are from Germany, and the quality is high. But I know the finest e-liquid is produced in UK, so I think you're ok :)
I also noticed, almost everybody's interest over box mods. I can't tell why, but I hate them. Maybe because that shape it reminds me about a pack of cigarettes. Ooh, and almost all of us, we had Japanese cotton with micro-coil in our setup. Changing the wicks is super easy, I can't believe you didn't tried yet.
I'm still reading this thread from time to time (from the page one), and I think we had an amazing journey so far. I'm still answer "Oliver from Manchester" , when I am asked what droved me into vaping. So Cheers to you!

Thanks for the recommendations. I rarely buy premixed liquid.....but when I do, I try and replicate the same flavour with my own ingredients. I just know everything I vape is safe when I mix it myself. Plus DIY liquid is 3-5 times cheaper for me than buying off the shelf. I buy premixed for ideas.

I will have a look at Twisted cheers. :thumb:

Most of the liquid in the UK comes from China, but you do find some shops selling their own stuff which is wonderful! It's a good idea to stay away from petrol station and corner shop E-Liquids; all chinese crap with impurities. Or they have LOTS of sweetener in which makes the liquid go brown/red. My liquid stays clear to the very last drop.

I have found Italian flavours can be very good but the Inawera (from Poland) and Tasty Puff (American) ones are my favourite. But you like tobacco flavours so that doesn't really help. The only tobacco flavour I have enjoyed is one called Silky, I still vape it from time to time or add a couple of drops to my atty.

Yeah I should try some micro coils but my Provari voltage doesn't go low enough. I normally make a 1.6-1.9 ohm coil. They last me three weeks or so before I get hardly any vapour. Still using ekowool. In fact, I am on the same piece of wool from almost 2 years ago, still have the same roll of wire too! Very cost effective.

I'm cutting down to 6mg, thanks for the kick up the arse! :lol: 12mg feels like too much now. Makes my head spin with a new coil lol

Haha "Oliver from Manchester"....the guy who introduced me was a taxi driver! He said "have a few puffs on this" in his car and I was sold immediately. So if I ever see him again I will give him a big handshake.

Nearly 13,000 views on this thread now....hopefully it has encouraged many others to kick the habit. :)

2 years smoke free for me!

I bet that room smelled nice with all that vape wafting around. Did other people look at you with suspicion, or is vaping generally accepted where you are ?

March 10 will officially mark my first anniversary. Interestingly, I rarely ever feel the urge to want to smoke a stinky stick any more..!

Good work mate, do you feel better for it?

You will slowly disassociate vaping from smoking, they are like two completely different things in my eyes.

In Englad vaping is hugely popular. There are vape shops popping up everywhere and people don't look at you funny any more. :lol: Even the senior generation are picking up on it, I've seen a few vaping grannies!

When I was shopping I noticed the price of the cigarettes I used to buy.....£9.16 for a pack of 20!!! ($14) No wonder everyone is vaping!

Yep, I definitely feel better for it.

There was a time last year when I felt the occasional urge to smoke, but that has pretty much disappeared now.

I think I have had 3 or 4 stinky sticks in the past 12 months but haven't been able to get past a few puffs of each...and I hated it each time I did it...! :oops:

So I won't include those occasional indiscretions in marking my anniversary in a couple of weeks :lol:

Don't worry Gareth....everyone quits in their own way. You shouldn't feel bad for having had a cigarette or two in the process. I recently helped another person 'quit' using a vape and he still smoked 4 cigarettes a day....down from 20 a day. He feels disappointed with himself but I told him he should be proud. Everyone quits in their own special way. Last week he informed me he's only on one cigarette a day now.

Well done Gareth and well done everyone else approaching and passing this milestone! You've all added 10-20 years onto your life :) Maybe even more.

Just took delivery of my new Aspire Nautilus BVC......very bloody nice so far.

I have been switching between the Vivi Novas and the Aspire BDC coils for over a year.

The BDC coils produce a great flavour but are unreliable (some last only a few days and some are dead when they come out of the packet !!)

Hope the BVC coils last longer !!
