If you live in the USA you can sell stuff via ECF and VU forums. You can sell on reddit, too, but only accept paypal friends and family, no exceptions - lots of crooked buyers on reddit.

But if shipping isn't appealing to you, local classified sites might work but many of these classified sites are not vape friendly.

Vaper buys pod system, asks for a 510 adapter. LOL for days

surprised no one said "forgetting to cap the dripper after juicing it and feel the lip heat"



Damn!! I'd forgotten about that one. I've left coil prints on my lips a few times, hissing & popping. Not pleasant & I feel like a complete idiot everytime it happens, lol.

That's easy....you pass it on, to several smokers, and help them quit.

Not politically correct, so WHEN I offend you...tough titties....and merry christmas ;P

Very good answer! I try to keep a tally of people that i have "influenced" to quit smoking. Old gear to you is brand new to someone else. Many long time smokers need a little "push", ya know? Expensive gear is another story , but most of us have plenty of "beaters" that we could do without.

Leaking. Tanks are still designed the way they more or less always have been and are susceptible to the same issues. RDA's still just have a hole on the side and, obeying the laws of physics, will pour out the juice when tilted. I don't care if YOUR tank has never leaked, or if I am "holding it wrong", it is still a potential and very realistic issue which holds back a lot of smokers from converting and is paid little attention to by the industry.

Some examples of innovations in this regards I would like to see more of:

* RDA airflow designs like the Vega RDA (SKU 9726141).
* RDA airflow designs like the Convergent RDA (SKU 9661717). On this one the air channels are raised slightly above the deck, so when you tilt the RDA the juice will flow underneath the air holes. The intention of this design might not be to prevent leaking, but in practice it does to some degree. Taking a bit further it could make for a pretty leak safe RDA.
* Use some kind of gel or paste instead of juice. This could kill leaking totally. I think this has been tried in the past with little success, but it could possibly work with more research and development put into it.


I hear you, and you make a very valid point...but- many, more simple and traditional rdas have better all around performance than the Vega RDA (which has been done before). Imagine a new vaper over dripping/squonking and filling those air channels under the top cap-a loud, slurpy mess will result, and is a common complaint of this rda. I like the rda, but its definitely NOT for beginners...

I think that simple is simple, and no one should have juice sloshing around in their rda. the proper amount of cotton absorbs it, and a squonk pulls excess back. I dont think this problem is widespread, so if you are getting juice pouring out, you need to adjust your technique. I like innovation too, but i like good performance and nice looks above all. I squonk everyday to some degree, and I can say we don't have your issue with RDAs- you are flooding them.

But your point in general remains valid. Newcomers, and oldies learning new styles, all need good products and PEOPLE for technical help, knowledge and encouragement. That's how we put those "sticks" down!

I'd say the worst thing about vaping is hand checks.

the unending chase of the ultimate gear/flavor which makes it harder to stop since you spent to much money on that collection you now have.
EDit:and buying spares you almost never use.

Random Handcheck! (It's not bad as gassing humans, but close.)
The mod is an oldie, Vaping Architect "Arkon" 18650 squonk with DB mods "Royal" reproduction.
