Got the Double Choc.[Image: smile.gif] It is not just the cost of juice you save on. My own built coils last about 10 weeks and I only wick every 2 weeks and even then it is not really necessary. Also battery life is a lot longer.

As a semi-retired old man cost is often a factor for me. Most of my gear comes by way of trade. I'm a canny trader and trade up. I also rarely buy new. And DIY saves a ton of money. I also went back to a modified MTL to conserve juice. I occasionally use my seroies mods or mechs but I try to ADV around 20-25 watts.

RE: What have you got on order ?
I go through nearly 30ml of juice per day. At that rate if I was buying store-bought premium juice, I'd be spending around $15 per day, compared to $6 per day for a pack of cigarettes (I know they're pretty cheap in my area). But with DIY juice mixing, 30ml costs about $2, including the cost of a bottle. I re-use bottles, so it's really more like $1.50 per day. Coils cost maybe $0.50 on the high end, and last at least a couple of weeks. So I'm definitely saving on a day-to-day basis, although factoring in buying new hardware makes that harder to calculate.

Don't even start calculating that aspect of it - and if you do it, do it when you're alone so the Mrs doesn't see the total! Smile

When I was only using the RTAs I was going through minimal 50ml a day - now only a few tanks for the commute and with enjoying the RDAs so much I've cut back on usage - that said, smokes are $14-$15 for 25 so even if I was buying premium (I was buying 140ml for $42) I'm still ahead of the game.

Thanks bibs. Work has been insane here lately so I haven't had nearly as much time to post. I'm not going to complain much though. I definitely have job security for the foreseeable future Smile

RE: What have you got on order ?
I hear you Michael. I'm probably pushing closer to 40ml a day. Working from home and being allowed to vape at my desk the few times I have to go into the main office doesn't help on juice consumption lol. Definitely not complaining about it though.

A little more on topic I have to order more mixing supplies soon. Just noticed I'm completely out of gloves and my nic supply is getting a little low. I'll have to do a flavor inventory this afternoon to see what flavors I need and then decide what new ones I want to get to play around with.

Keep Calm and Vape On!

efun.top has shipped my coil jig, clapton rig, and the RX300's. Cool! I thought the RX's would be on pre-order longer than that.

Great news about the RX300. After your last preorder experience, anything could have happened.
