    Since I switched over to vaping from smoking since Feb this year, I have only been using local online Thai vendors. After exploring this forum I have noticed people mentioning 3Fvape etc.

    I have never used an overseas online shop before. Especially for vape products. They have a Bonza mech kit that reeeeally I want. Wondering if others could share their experiences using 3Fvape while living here in Thailand.

    I’ve used them many times but only for coils. You have to ask them to use a very generic declaration and a low value (<฿1,000) and ship via airmail only, nothing faster (add registered for tracking purposes). Resist the urge to choose any faster shipping options.

    Thank you. I have never ordered anything online from overseas before. Here it's really easy because you can chat with them on Line.

    Is this something I would have to message them about?

    Also, if it were to get seized, would customs be interested in my address?

    I would highly suggest you include the request in the order notes (if that is an option) & send a follow-up email to Customer Service. Better safe than sorry but they’re pretty switched on to shipping here IIRC. YMMV
    Unlikely (at least, we’ve had no reports of this happening up to now.) but it’s always a possibility to consider. ;)

    Got a package seized by customs from 3fvape a while ago. As far as I remember it was an attie. Normal delivery with tracking number.
    I've never ordered Attie or mods anymore from other countries when I'm in TKS (The Kingdom of Siam) but you can still try. Don't think you would have more problems than product being seized but you never know.

    As @Fastoche ,I got 2 or 3 package seized,
    Since, it's only unexpensives items throught "non vaping" companies. I just order last week a istick pico from ebay (one of my backup was seek and die, after my puppy push the mod it in the swimming pool of a vaper friend )
    My last package arrive safe.
    For good things , follow the advices of the admin, " no fast options, low value etc......)
    An uneasy option: family or good friend buy or recieve it for you, and send back as present.

    There are some good feedback for the voopoo pod in France, they really appreciate the ajustable air flow (wait and see, maybee a "best of the pod" for this year)

    Hi,

    Had Smok Rpm40 also.
    More prefer to press Vinci fire button.

    Now will buy only pod system or small sub ohm tank as too lazy to change coils...

    Now daily will bring 2 pod to office with different favor.
    Alone in office, just vaping non stop. Ejuices stock level low...

    Hi.

    Experience on the Vinci...

    Start with the PnP R1 0.8 Ohm coil, after 2 days it leaked...

    This coil's bottom similar Smok Nord coil which I experienced similar leaking issue before.

    Stop using the 0.8 Ohm coil as the leaked ejuice went into the 3 connector pins area of the device.

    Did add some VG to increase the thickness of the ejuice but still leaking. Can't add too much as it was a pod system...

    Any similar experience/advice?

    Probably best to start a new thread for this. ;)
