    ECIGSSA COMP 10 – Share Your Favourite Tip!

    Sponsored by The E-Cig Inn, Boost, and X-Hype Liquid Company

    Competition Closes: Wednesday 9 May 2018


    Tip.jpg

    Hey Fam! It's competition time again!

    One of the amazing things that being a member of ECIGSSA, is that we get to share and receive some really useful advice. Running into a problem and being able to post about it, and get responses is something that never gets old.

    Even aside from that, every now and then you come across a post about something that you've never really thought about, yet it can instantly change the way you do something, or improve some aspect of your vaping experience!

    We thought it would be a cool idea to run a competition, and hopefully consolidate some of the little gems that people have stumbled across and others might have missed!

    How to Win
    It really is as simple as sharing a useful tip with us! Be it setting up a mod, coiling a specific RTA, or even a specific concentrate to sneakily add into your favourite mix for an added note! You can make it as easy or as complicated as you like!

    All entries will then be randomly drawn to establish our three winners!

    The Prizes
    We have three amazing prices up for grabs, thanks to three AMA-ZING Supporting Vendors!


    VAPE DECADENCE / THE E-CIG INN
    @BigB and @Mari have generously put up 6 x 100mls of their juice Crafters Code! Their are 8 juices in the range, and the winner can choose their flavours and nicotine options of 0mg / 3mg / 6mg!

    Most use full tip I have is BE REGISTERED ON THIS FORUM, YOU WILL NEVER GO WRONG!!

    the rest are:
    - ALWAYS have 2 spare replacement glass for your tanks (Even when you think you dont need it)
    - Put your Nicotine in one of THESE bottles, its much safer to use for beginner DIYers.
    - Always carry an extra set of batteries (Safely in silicone sleeves or a safe container, NEVER making contact)

    Hope it helps someone

    Awesome @Dietz !

    Definitely can't argue with you on the forum registration!

    I'm lucky that I've only ever broken two glasses, and one was on purpose because I couldn't unscrew the ******! The nicotine is actually a relevant point to me. I have mine in a 100ml Chubby Gorilla with the tip snipped off. I forgot those bottles have a tendency to hold juice on the top, so the other day when I was boosting my nic in one of my juices, I got a nice handful of nic. I suddenly realised bottle choice was important!

    The biggest and most important tip that I can give is:

    Always prime and lube up ur coils, even if u are doing a huge pit stop and not going to be using that atty anytime soon. There will come a time u just screw that atty with dry coils onto a mod and hit that fire button!

    So always always prime/lube them coils lol!

    Because you know what they say about no lube, it’s like going down a water slide with no water!

    Peace

    When fitting coils or rewicking, always make sure the coils are a safe distance from the rest of the atomiser. Shorts cause sparks, sparks ignite ejuice, inhaling flaming ejuice is not fun.

    Charge batteries as soon as possible, if you keep forgetting, you will get caught out sooner rather than later.

    Most people find it easier to use a scale to mix DIY. Try using syringes and pipettes, but chances are you will prefer mixing by weight.

    Emergency menthol concentrate can be made with Menthol crystals (available from chemists) and PG. Mix to your desired concentration, then add a few drops to your favourite fruity (or other) juice to give it some chill.

    Wear sunscreen.

    My tip is backup your backup.
    I ran into a situation where i had four mods with me (two different setups and two pod mods)and no charger and all went flat the same time about 5hours from clocking out at work.so now i carry backup juice backup mods and backup chargers and a small wicking set in a small luchbox and just yesterday my glass broke in my shirt pocket and it didn't bother me(that much).the best part is when you can help someone with said toolbox when they run into trouble[​IMG]

    The easiest tip for new vapers i give is.

    Go to a vape shop with an expierenced vaper to have him help you understand the vape lingo and not to be bullied into buying a setup that is not to your liking or vape style.

    As easy as that.

    Tip for Vapers!

    Snip the tip of the Chubby tip so the juice comes out without you pulling a muscle squeezing the bottle!

    The tip(s) that I can give is:

    * ALWAYS do your research - You don't wanna end up buying something which is of no use to you

    ...and one more...

    * Make sure your spouse does not see your Credit Card statements
    :D

    Happy Vaping!

    Hi guys.

    My number one tip I have to share goes :
    Get uncapped data , cause when you're hooked on ecigssa you'll kill mb's like it's nothing.

    And then : when refilling your rta , make sure you have the right bottle of juice in your hand , nothing tastes as bad as two exact opposite flavour profiles mixing.

    Have a great day ;

    My tip is "recommending RDTA's for new vapers".

    This comes from experience where starter kits just don't do it right and guys start worrying about their budget every time they need to buy new coils, or replace sealed battery packs etc.

    RTA's can be off putting if you don't wick it right, resulting in leaks or dry hits.

    RDA's for noobs just seem like a hassle, and they don't fancy the idea of dripping every few drags.

    Therefore RDTA's, which perform reasonably well, coil replacement and wicking is cheap, and they avoid the issues that RTA's and RDA's have.

    Always replace the chimney top cap on the Dvarw DL RTA when rebuilding to prevent pulling a @Genosmate :)

    When pitstopping your Skyline or clone always ensure that the inner o-ring is in place before you screw the tank together.:confused: Otherwise no 1 on your mod.

    Make sure there is not heavy juice build up under your atty as this can be a mod/chip killer. Keep it fresh :cool:

    My top tip - Do not get into a discussion with anyone who is anti-vaping. Just nod your head and move along. Smile on the inside :NAUGHTYEYE:

    Best tip I ever received was this:

    Using screw on pouring tops for large bottle mixes of 500ml to refill smaller bottles or straight into the atty tanks.

    My tip comes from experience. Always mark which of your battery pairs are married. Easiest is to mark the white insulator ring with a marker (just a dot or 2, so 1 dot = set 1, 2 dots = set 2 etc etc.), or alternatively change the wraps so married sets only match each other.

    Marrying batteries in dual/triple/quad battery mods is important (see https://www.ecigssa.co.za/importance-of-married-batteries.t48486/) and it's easy to lose track of sets when you're like me and use a lot of the same battery type (12 samsung 30Q 18650s and 6 Ijoy 21700s).
