1. Welcome to Thailand Vapers, an English language forum for members in Thailand and the rest of Asia to talk about vaping.
    Commonly referred to as e-cigarettes, vaping is really about the use of personal vaporizers (mods) and atomizers (tanks, clearos, RBAs, RDAs, RTAs) filled with e-liquid.

    Has anyone experienced any strange symptoms from vapping? Have you noticed what causes them? Pg, vg, flavor, a specific brand?

    I'm looking to order some liquids from the US and hope to get some ideas of what to avoid if possible.

    I did when I first started, as my body was getting rid of 32 years of analogue garbage in my system. I must have hacked out at least a lung and breathing was hard as I was expelling everything. Now everything is fine. But that's just me.

    Those symptoms were those I used to suffer from smoking :)

    One thing that has changed for me in my vaping is that I become much more "sensitive" with the regard to PG. I prefer much less PG now. Beside that it's just a question about smell and flavour.

    Everyone is different, the only thing you can go by is how you get along with the juice.

    Nothing for me, i never had any problems as a smoker, no smokers cough or any other stuff.
    I was a 30 a day heavy smoker for around 20 years....
    The only thing i got for the last year of smoking was bad headaches...
    Once I started vaping i felt no different and have had no things at all ...
    I like 50/50 juice or heavier VG...
    All is good...
    I might just give up vaping all together :wink:

    I usually vape 50/50, but have had no problems with Mack's Juice (65/35 VG/PG) or Highbrow Vapor (70/30 PG/VG)

    I get shortness of breath when I vape juice with diketones (possibly just diacetyl and acetyl pyrazine, I'm not really sure). I also get a strange feeling and aftertaste when I vape anything sweetened with sucralose. Neither of these things personally concern me, and they seem to go away as I get used to a juice that contains them, but I prefer to avoid them to keep my sensitivities up. I try to avoid them altogether in juices I make.

    First part of the question, give then to me. Second part of the question, take a look at Bigs driptips, there are some of different materiel, like wiood, plastic, teflon and glass, just to name a few.

    Wich one are better I guess is something that is very individual, iI fear you just have to try some different materials out so see what suits you best.
