I know Eddie despises the click and forget devices, but I can also see the value in them too. I have a lot of gear that needs fussing and sussing; nothing wrong with having a super-simple option available.

I do not despise them - it just takes away everything I really enjoy about vaping - it is nearly getting back to just taking a cig. out the packet and lighting up. I can understand the convenience ''thing'' but it is not vaping as I enjoy it and certainly not the hobby it has become for me - and many others on this forum - everything has its place though so all the best for those who enjoy it.

I cant say the same , stopped in to a new " vape shop " and asked a bout desert flavor juices and felt insulted when asked wich pods i wanted . Good grife , the instant gratification generation is killing the hobby , what do they want next a pre impregnated girlfriend .

Several fine responses would work here, but I will just use an old joke.

Please send me a little sister or brother."

Send me your mother..."

RE: What did you get today?
Good morning everyone! We've been having a thunderstorm or two each evening since Wednesday, mostly just a bit of rain, thunder and lightning, nothing that would impress you TW. They are supposed to continue through the weekend.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Well dang, this was meant for the Chat hub. Been a long week....

Keep Calm and Vape On!

That's a very interesting view. I must think some more on that.

The fiddling is part of the fun.

Unless you are coiling a Big Fogger with 1mm wire. That is not fun.

Nearly led to percussive maintenance with a 4lb hammer.

RE: What did you get today?
Maybe I should clarify...

If pods were the entirety of my vaping experience, I would not be happy. I was speaking of having one on hand as well as the fiddly bits.

I can see the value of a pod for things like business trips or some sort of travel where fiddling would be highly inconvenient. A pod would be nice for that. Or maybe on the boat, just draw it as you wish without a lot of worry about spilling, filling, dropping, swapping, etc.

But a vaping world filled only with pods? No thank you.

If there were only pods there would be no hobby - nothing do do but vape is not for me.
