RE: Nicotine levels and smoking vs vaping
Quote:I think if we direct beginners to better setups with more vapor production at lower nic levels, they'll have more success and enjoy vaping more.  The higher power levels will satisfy their throat/lung hit needs.  The higher temps and greater vape production delivers nicotine more efficiently.  People will see more success, faster. 

Exactly that. Start with a half decent device at around 6 mg and you should be fine TBH. Vaping has progressed. A 50 watt device once thought to be oh so powerful is now nothing at all. I started on 8 watt devices because that was what they had at the time. So many people tried vaping and gave it up then. Now the success rates are higher with the new kits be it a kanger kit, a joytech kit and ibliss kit. My friend almost gave up on vaping. I gave him my 40w ibliss and a delta 2 tank and now he is happy as anything. Course I miss my ibliss, lol, but hey I have plenty of mods (just bought a new evic VTC to put my bellus on).

Once you are sub ohming it is real easy to vape yourself out with nic. Now I vape 1.5 when I can get it but most juices I really like are either 0 or 3. So I will use 3 or just add the 0 to 3 for 1.5. I have so many unicorn bottles now! As to will the old devices slowly disappear? Well some will others will not. There will always be devices for the MTL guys. Sub ohming is not everyone's cup of tea. I prefer sub ohming myself but I know lots of MTL guys very happy with their weaker set ups. I still occasionally MTL late at night. My nautilus mini has a place in my heart.

RE: Nicotine levels and smoking vs vaping
For me, when I first switched, it was all about the throat hit. I started on 18mg then found myself on 30mg pretty quickly trying to match the sensation I was used to from chugging B&H all day. 

As soon as I tried menthol juice all that changed as the additional 'tingle' provided a much more satisfying hit (and I HATED menthol cigarettes). I almost immediately went down to 11mg after that, then onto 6mg once I had a proper mod & tank.

RE: Nicotine levels and smoking vs vaping
When i first started vaping i was on 18mg on a kangertech type mod. Sad but since have progressed to a Eleaf IKUU 200w with a smok tfv12 tank running at 100w and down to 6mg of nic and that works just fine for me.
