e-juice question
I'm currently vaping juice that is 50% pg and 50%vg. I'm thinking about trying some with more vg.  What are the rest of you vaping?

RE: e-juice question
I've tried 70PG/30VG but I do prefer 50/50 mix, it just seems to hit the spot with both flavour and vapour. I haven't yet tired anything lower than that PG-wise but I know a lot of folks do stick to a 100% VG mix.

One thing I did notice with a higher VG juice is the slight oily sensation on your lips but I don't get that anymore. Perhaps it's something you get used to  Smile

Let us know how you get on if you do decide to try a higher PG juice..

RE: e-juice question
Also just a quick note worth pointing out especially as you now have a Protank.

When you try the higher VG juice on the Kanger, you may find you're getting dry hits because the juice is thicker and doesn't flow so fast into the wicks.

By removing the top wick it will help to deliver a perfect vape with thicker juice.

Here's a vid showing how it's done. Scroll to 8mins 40seconds

RE: e-juice question
Thanks for the tip. I'm gonna head down to my local shop this week I'll have them mix me up a few bottles of different ratios to see what I like. Then I'll let you know what I discover.

RE: e-juice question
I'm currently vaping 70/30 VG/PG that I get from my local shop where he makes all his own juice (lehighvapor.com).  I find that when it's cold out (left my SVD in the car over night) that juice gets really thick.  The iClear i30 works great with a 70/30 mix and makes tons of vapor.  I was vaping it all weekend at the flashlight camping weekend I attended near Cape May this past weekend.

RE: e-juice question
So I picked up some 70/30 juice tonight. I think I found just what I needed. This stuff isn't harsh at all and produces a nice cloud of vapor. Over all I'm very happy.

RE: e-juice question
I picked up some vanilla, coconut, and mocha latte. All from Cravin Vapes it's the closest shop for me and they make all their liquid in house while you wait.

RE: e-juice question
Let it air for about 36 hours in a dark cabinet, then sit in the dark about a week, you will be amazed at the flavor increase.
See the thread about steeping for an explanation on the process. Of course there is also you Tube

RE: e-juice question
It'd a little bit more difficult making 100% vg juice because the majority of flavouring are suspended in pg because pg carrys flavour better, vg is not very good at it. This is why you get a muting of flavour with high vg juices.
A good way to help combat the muting and improve wicking is to use water in your mix, I'd advice distilled or purified water and around the 10% mark is about right.
