Wink What's your dumbest vaping mistake?
Everyone makes dumb mistakes. What's the dumbest mistake you ever made in the vaping world? I started this thread so I'll take the first hit. I bought a new stick battery for my little aspire tank as a back up. I got home charged it up, screwed on my tank and NOTHING! CRAP! So I started doing some investigating and a little research. I come to find out that the contact of the battery is a little lower that the battery I have been using so I youtube on how to fix that. Now I have that fixed and I even use a depth micrometer to make sure it's perfect. I screw the tank back on and NOTHING! WTF! Now I've wasted hours and I'm really getting pissed because the vape store is about a 40 minute drive one way. I find my receipt and I'm just about to head out the door to go give someone hell and it hits me! Got to push that button 5 times! Dash2 It's all working now. Good

I think my worst one was the time I forgot to put the top cap back on a dripper - the hit was a bit more than expected.

RE: What's your dumbest vaping mistake?
Went to refill my tank.  Distracted by things around me, I began to unscrew the base from the tank but neglected to turn it over first.  Did I mention it was nowhere near empty, I was just topping it off..?  

Remind one liberal per day, that laws affect only the law-abiding.

RE: What's your dumbest vaping mistake?
After a restless night, I got up per my alarm in a mental fog; I grabbed my half-full vape and decided I wanted to change out the flavor. Grabbed my bottle of Sucker Punch, took it and my vape to the sink. Unscrewed my tank, unscrewed the Sucker Punch and began dumping the Sucker Punch into the sink. About half of the bottle was gone before I woke up and realized I was dumping the wrong container; meant to dump 1.5ml of old juice and ended up dumping 15ml of new juice. Lesson: coffee first, THEN change up the vape juice.

There's no ‘I’ in ‘TEAM.’ There’s no ‘U’ either. It doesn’t appear the TEAM needs us, so let’s go grab a beer!Drinks

I believe that's known as "juice abuse". Sarcastic_hand

RE: What's your dumbest vaping mistake?
k1 glassomiser turned it upside down to unscrew the bottom to fill got distracted but kept tank in hand sorted what needed my attention then proceeded to fill it without removing the bottom of the tank , holding it up at eye level looking into the tank i could not understand why it was not filling until i noticed juice coming out the air holes,

also unscrewd silo lite from my vtr only to find the base had stayed on the vtr resulting in juice everywhere.

and i mix my own liquid in spice jars from tescos nice globe shape and bigger surface area for the liquid to breath also
easy to use my milk frother to mix, picked up the jar to inspect after a few weeks of steeping, holds up to the light to see the golden mix in al its glory only to be left with the screwed top in my hand jar on the floor and all my juice making a bid for freedom
 
i am not accident prone at all honestSarcastic_hand

Yep I did that once ! Dual coil 12 wrap 24 gauge Kanthal. Caught it just before I burned the you know what out of my lips. Got a slight burn though, could have been worse

Forgot to close the juice flow on a Kayfun 4, flooded like crazy. Forgot to put the coil in a nautilus and filled it. OOOPS
