The fan is a good idea. Our floor standing fan runs all day everyday literally 24/7
You need to get some heat in that room when your not in it. Winter is coming and it going to get worse when it's colder
Im very similar, 13ml, 70/30 and 8hrs + in front of the pc.
@Resistance Im thinking of either aquarium mat, breather cloth used for epoxy vacuum bagging or sheet foam filter used for bikes. The issue is finding a fan that has enough static pressure to operate without sounding like an airport runway.
220v pc fan???
Also check some of the pc stores. Some of the older PC's used a cloth type washable filter over the CPU fan. You might still find it.
I've seen what electronic devices look like when smoking near them... I doubt this could be much worse. Smoking has killed a few pc fans and an amplifier for me.
Now I'm worried, as I chain-vape when I'm at the computer. I don't want to blow the vapour to the left as it's going to hit the wall. I won't blow it to the right as my doggy is on the spare bed in the office. So now I swing around 180 degrees - fortunately I have a swivel-chair - so that I blow the vapour away from the computer.
So much to think about when vaping! When I read at night in bed I make sure the window above the bed is open - even in winter - and, in addition, I blow to the left, towards the en suite bathroom where the window is always open. I'm going to get a crick in the neck one of these days!!!
@Hooked I have no doubt that there is a film of VG building up on things we vape near (especially windscreens) but I have been vaping near my PC for 7 years without an issue.
I havent had an issue with my pc either, just took a peek inside and didnt see any droplets or feel any greasiness.
My pc is black, but metal, so the outer and inner surfaces are pretty similar temp wise.
Im of the opinion that its limited to black plastic cases with hot components inside, my thinking is that the plastic has a bigger temp difference between the inner and outer skins leading to condensation.
Thanks for that @Rob Fisher. I was going into a rapid paranoid decline!
Big Clive to the rescue :
That’s why my pc gets a clean out every 3 months. The dust instead of being fine and loose, it sticks to the fans.
The worst is the mirrors, I battle to actually clean them. Windows are easier.
Thats why i use Linux
pffft, smart aleck. Lol. I knew someone was going to say something like this.
@Timwis: It's not just me vaping, but also the other guy vaping and smoking in between. He's seen how much tar I've wiped off the windows from his smoking habit. So there's two vapers in the house now.
Yeah my wife vapes too! VG clings to everything!
today I opened up my old monitor. The panel was broken and I finally found a replacement, but that's another story. I have used this monitor for two years and after it broke, it was just sitting inside a box for the last 6 months. This is the inside of the back cover.
I have an extractor fan in my room now and it's been much better. No more condensation. If you are a cloud chaser like me, don't vape in a room full of electronics without ventilation.
Yoh. Thats actually scary
There's a fair whack of research on the web about filtering aerosols out of the air, to which the most effective stand alone units at the mo' seem to be combination negative ion generation and physical filtration, (the better ones using activated carbon filtration).
Ever been up in the mountains, at the beach, or in a thunderstorm and suddenly felt a huge shift in your mood? ... well that's negative ions at work, and it's the bonus you'll get if you use a negative ion generator. Foreign particles fall out of suspension in air when exposed to negative ions and are literally glued to the air when exposed to cations (positive ions), to which pretty much every electrical appliance in your home is a positive ion generator, (and not discounting condensation), also a magnet for airborne particles!)
Have a vape on the beach or in a thunderstorm and look at what happens to your vapour clouds as you exhale, and you'll be installing a negative ion generator ... clearly the pics above show the converse
Some random reading on the subject;
I've started blowing the vapour under the desk!
