Ah, they are called bongs where I'm from haha.
SS: fruity flavors really remind you that it's very hookah like. Cool vapor instead of warm. Sometimes harsh, but also sometimes very airy, depending on nic level and pg/vg ratio. You can find e-juice w/o nicotine too, which I'd recommend if you want to vape but aren't currently addicted.
DLMB... long time no see?
Thats some kit you have there, I bought a basic one as linked to in a previous thread, but I have to suck the balls out of it to get a decent throat hit.
Do I just need a better one? (vape, not throat) .

LONDON, Ont. - Facing an avalanche of demand for e-cigarettes it says are illegal, Health Canada is doing little to stop them, leading Ontario vendors say.
The inaction has been so bad, sellers have stepped up to regulate themselves, voluntarily testing their products for safety, said Daniel David, owner of Evape and a founding director of the Electronic Cigarette Trade Association of Canada.
"Canada's electronic cigarette industry (has) operated under a ‘Wild West' principle for far too long," the association wrote on its website.
Some vendors say Health Canada sends threatening letters and e-mails to those who sell e-cigarettes with nicotine, telling them to cease and desist, but when the sales continue, doesn't seize their products and doesn't lay charges.
In an e-mail to QMI Agency Health Canada spokeswoman Blossom Leung wrote the agency "continues to refuse both personal importations of electronic cigarettes with nicotine and commercial importations in the absence of market authorization."
But while the regulator asks the Canada Border Agency to seize products before they get into the country, most vendors say they've have had little loss -- David estimates he's lost between 1% and 2% of his imports.
The lack of policing means some Canadians buy e-cigarettes whose contents aren't tested, placing them at risk and threatening the name of good producers, David said.
"This product really needs to be regulated," said David, whose company has grown five-fold since 2010 and distributes its products through four Ontario stores.
Health Canada this week didn't reply to QMI questions asking what it's done in detail to crack down on e-cigarettes since it issued an advisory in 2009 banning their import or sale if they contain nicotine or make claims of health benefits.
One seller, Cindy Lanning, has openly advertised e-cigarettes with nicotine on her website for three-and-a-half years.
Canadians who buy at her site, Rainbowvapor.com, choose their strength of nicotine from drop-down menus.
"I openly sell nicotine and they ignored me," Lanning said from the Midland, Ont., home where she has her business.
Health Canada once persuaded her Internet provider to shut down the site, she said, but she convinced it to put it back up hours later. She estimates her online business has grown 10-fold.
"It's huge," she said.
Like David, she wants Health Canada to create real regulations that require testing. Both also applaud the agency for shutting down a Quebec vendor who made claims of health benefits -- the only time the agency has shut down a vendor, as far as the two know.
Made using an ego V variable voltge battery, Vision Eternity Atomizer with a clear drip tip and M140 Diode
Well its arrived, its quite nice...and its given me an idea..
It a laser shaped host....you know where I'm going with this
It has variable voltage & wattage output :eg:
Goes from 3.0v right upto 6v in .1v increments..all from a 18650 , and all the way upto 15W output.
They are dsigned to "drive" resistance wire down to 1.5ohm so at around 4.5v , it should drive a 9mm 445nm pretty good :eg:
