Would a warm soapy water soak be better than alcohol? Wouldn't the alcohol be harmful for the gaskets/rings, etc.

I'm not 100% sure what it is, honestly. It's hard to describe. The low resistance and fast ramp-up time is great for cloud chasing, and the flavor is... I guess "clean" is a good word for it.

RE: What have you got on order ?
Placed an order today from Capella's. Enough French Vanilla, Caramel, and Cappuccino to make a liter each of my two favorite juices, Colonel Custard and Smokey Mountain Morning. Planning to smuggle a bit into the UK for Mike to send along to the other folks there who wanted to try some. I'll try to send some around here in the US when I get back too. Also ordered a bit of Capella's Apple Pie, for some reason I hadn't tried it yet so I'm really looking forward to that.

Cap apple pie is good. Predictable but good.

RE: What have you got on order ?
I cancelled the iPV6x order. Waiting since June for it is just silly. I think the Laisimo will be a good substitute. Maybe when the iPV7 comes out I'll try again. Chuck got his RX200s out of the deal so that's cool anyway.

Predictable is fine for me. I've had more apple pie juices than probably any other flavor, but many of them just aren't quite right. When I find a good one, Apple Pie is my favorite vape but the best ones are either way too expensive (a local shop's "premium" line costs $25 for 30ml) or way too far away (really nice one for $10/30ml... in Pensacola). So if it's good but predictable, at least I can make it myself cheap and maybe add extra flavors like Double Apple, Caramel or Sugar Cookie to get it where I want it.

It's good, tastes pretty much exactly like apple pie with cinnamon. To me it doesn't need anything else. I don't use it much though, because it doesn't play well with other flavorings for some reason. But it is good straight up. You could probably enhance it with the ones you mentioned.

Heartland Vapes had some good prices on flavorings, so I picked up:

KEY LIME (TFA)

MARASCHINO CHERRY (PG) (TFA)

RED LICORICE (TFA)

RAINBOW DROPS (TFA)

EGG NOG (TFA)

TFA's Blueberry (Wild) is great so I figure I'll give them a go. They cost between $5 and $8.75 for 4oz, so I kinda just jumped. Hopefully egg nog is good. Good prices.

Here is the problem with the IPV6. There was a recall. Then there were three versions of the operating system. The mod also could not be upgraded without it being sent back to the manufacturer. The original IPV6 had issues. Not just the reverse battery issue (not just protection) but also some had faulty battery doors and the TC was not functioning well. The newest version - V1.5 - has resolved these issues. So now it is indeed a nice mod. Yihi chip. Functioning protections. Usable TC. Unfortunately a lot of retailers are NOT taking the mods back and getting them updated for their customers. This is a major cock up. IPV should do better beta testing to avoid these situations but meh ... everyone was in a rush to get new product out. Now you might as well wait for the IPV7. The form factor on the mod is great though.

The Iron Maiden is also having issues with copyright protection. That is why they were held up. Jeez - a litany of screw ups. Myself I'm just going to order the Aromamizer Supreme Light and be done - first RTA in awhile I'm excited to get. As for mods - I'm waiting on the Sig J180. Looks very promising from the reviews. Smaller than the Evic Mini! It has dual 2000 MaH Lipo - at least reasonable battery life. That or the Minikin 180w touch screen which I played with at one of the local B+Ms.

One thing to watch with cinnamon is that it can be a tank cracker. There is something in the flavour that attacks the plastic that many tanks are made from.

Some citrus flavours have the same problem.

Since it seems that just about everything new has glass tanks, this may not be the issue it once was.
