RE: Struggling with MTL Set up to quit smoking
Ecig is on the money. The Triton mini is a great MTL tank. Know this about mods. Almost any mod can be used for MTL. Just because the max watts on an Alien is 220 or so does not mean you cannot use it at 12 watts for a decent MTL vape. In fact the batteries will last you days that way. And it is a nice small mod to boot. It also allows you the option to eventually DTL. Now you can, and I actually do, vape at 35 or so watts when you DTL. I do this on my squonks. Also don't ignore the man's advice on VG/PG ratios when it comes to a MTL vape. You need a 60/40 or 50/50 ratio. The cpoils do not heat up like a DTL vape. The 50/50 juice is thinner and thus you will not get dry hits which suck.

Also people - stop referring to me and making me add my comments. I'm a lazy, angry Canadian. Remember?

RE: Struggling with MTL Set up to quit smoking
Some great advice in here, thank you all so much. Really pleased I can continue with my set up. A few things I didn't really get have been cleared up, so thank you very much.

I have a variety of juices in different flavours I got when I bought the whole set up. At the time I had no idea about VG/PG ratios, they were just juices to me (Naive) Is there any way I can check which they are, I have tried looking on the bottle, but the writing is tiny.

Thank you for all the supportive comments about quitting smoking. Been really tough actually. 20 years pack a day + smoker, but I am so glad I am doing it now. 6th day without a cigg. Went to the shop last night and it was the first time I didn't almost buy some out of habit. There was also a man standing outside smoking and it really smelled horrid. I still crave one, but it is getting easier by the day, once I have this vape set up to my liking I am sure I am going to do it.

RE: Struggling with MTL Set up to quit smoking
If you can't read the small print, most suppliers have a description on their website that lists that info. MOST over the counter ejuice is 70/30 as it appears to be a good balance between flavour and clouds...

Hang in there and CONGRATS! Clink the image below in this message and set up a counter for yourself - it's awesome to track your progress and another little thing I did when I quit that helped me.

RE: Struggling with MTL Set up to quit smoking
I'm not sure what it is like in other countries, but I have found shops in England to be pretty unhelpful so far to be honest. I learned more from this thread than I did from several visits and chats to Vape shops. I have already got my set up working 100 x better than I had it.

The juices are a great example. I totally explained to them what I was after, yet not one of them mentioned anything about 60/40 50/50 mixes etc etc.

Really glad I joined the forum, think I am going to learn a lot on here. Thanks again for all the replies.

RE: Struggling with MTL Set up to quit smoking
Quite shameful of the shops you've visited really. My local is very good, though the longest serving staff recently left which was a blow, this guy in particular really knew his shiz
Ive said it before and ill say it again, the difference between vaping enthusiasts as staff and not just salesmen makes the shop. Like you said though, you know us now so you'll be areeet Big Grin

RE: Struggling with MTL Set up to quit smoking
^^ You know I ran into this, one shop near me has actually people that work their that vape and give good advice. I went to another shop in the same area and all they wanted to was sell me stuff but didn't seem like they wanted to answer new vapester questions, so I never went back there.
