    Occasionally I have a question but I don't really know under which thread to ask it.Or perhaps one doesn't want to create a new thread for a quick question. Therefore this thread may suit such a purpose. So ask anything on your mind pertaining to vapeing or not.(If the staff thinks this thread redundant please remove it)

    Let me ask the first quickie,

    Do any members have an opinion on the Snow Wolf 235?
    I have always liked the Wolf and ran across a gold one for $49.00 which seemed like a pretty good price so I pushed the button with my ever itchy trigger finger.

    Ive see on alot of review videos if not all review videos i watch, when they wick a atty they use a really long piece of cotton and then trim it.

    Why do they use such a long piece intially and do you use those off cutts again or just chuck them ?

    I ask cause usually when i wick i cut a piece of cotton which i know i will only stay left with about 10-15mm on either side to trim off.

    Thanks in advance peeps

    Please let us know how the mod is and if you're not loving it... DIIIIIBS!

    Looking for a gold to swop for my minikin v2 but they are so few on the market, possibly because it is a great device.

    Hi @antonherbst
    Not sure what you mean by "businesses" but if you want to promote other non-vape businesses, that is not allowed. Only supporting vendors can discuss and promote their businesses in their dedicated subforums and they have to be vape related. Sorry. Check out the posting rules

    I also use just enough cotton too get the job done. I guess the reviewers come from a first world environment where there's never a need to save :p

    To me personally doesnt make sence. Ive watched videos where the piece they trim off is even longer than the wick itself.

    At what wattage do you run your Nautilus mini tanks? i run at 7.5 coz if i increase anything above that, even just to 8.5 i get the burnt cotton taste even though the coils are rated up to i think 20 watts???

    Hi @Spongebob
    What coils are you using? What is their resistance?
    My mom runs her Nautilus Mini with the 1.6 ohm BVC coils at 10.5 Watts. No burnt taste. She mainly uses a lightish coloured coffee vape in there.

    I also run the 1.6 ohm coils at 10W. Any higher and it gets blegh.
    However, @Spongebob - check the resistance on a mod. The Aspire BVC coils are known for not being on par with their resistance. My 1.6 ohm coils often come in at 1.75.

    Yeah, I've seen that too. Looking at you, Vaping with Vic. I suppose reviewers often get cotton for free to review so there is little need to use it sparingly. I run mostly single coils so I tear off a strip of Bacon V2, cut it in half, wick with one half and put the other half back in the bag for next time.

    This is also where I like the Cotton Candy rayon. It comes in one loooooooong strip coiled into the bottle so I just take enough for the wick and about 1cm on each side for pinching/clipping.

    I have a quick question for DIYers: do you measure out your VG by exact weight when adding it or are you an "I just fill the bottle" type? I think both are fine but I'm a measurer. I dunno, it just feels wrong to measure out every other ingredient precisely and then dump an indeterminate "well, it's sorta near the top of the bottle so it's fine" amount of VG in to finish it off.

    I measure mine, but that's because I never fill the bottle all the way to the top. I always leave 4-5ml shake-room.

    I always try and halve my CBv2 (or similar). For single I'll put the other piece away for later. For dual I then have 2 pieces. It works pretty well for me.

    Definitely measure. The way I see it, I'm sitting there measuring my concentrates to the drop/milligram to get the percentages just right. If I over- or under-do the VG (which I do last) I'll be skewing those carefully measured percentages.

    I measure out. Always start with nic, then PG, followed by VG and then concentrates from highest to lowest percentage.

    I go nic, PG, then concentrates in recipe order. Then I add the VG last, cap, label and give the whole thing a shake. I'm not sure why I do it this way, probably because that's how I saw Wayne doing it on Live Mixing. Although Wayne puts the concentrates in before the PG and also gives all the PG-based ingredients a swirl before adding the VG. I don't bother with the swirl, I figure I'm going to be shaking the whole lot anyway so no point in pre-mixing the PG ones. I dunno, it's just the way I do it, no real reason other than habit.

    Hi @Silver
    I run the 1.8 ohm Aspire BVC coils, rated at 4.2 to 5 volts on the coil? although it might be my style of vaping as well? Since i started vaping i always " double clutch" as one puff doesn't seem to give enough satisfaction?

    I definitely measure. As @TheV says, I go to the trouble of measuring everything else...

    @Andre I'm completely the opposite to you - I start with the concentrates, then nic, PG, VG. That way if I stuff up (like using Fresh Fig instead of Fresh Cream!) It isn't a complete loss.
