Anyone using one of these for steeping their juice. Do they really speed up the process. I was thinking of getting one for steeping.....

I tried that once... It actually separated the e-liquid into about 3 layers... had the opposite effect I was looking for ... thought it would just really mix it up good.

The few youtube videos I watched, it seemed to work but I wanted to get some opinions from people I trust. I have the chance to get one real cheap. I guess i'll leave it so....

I have one.  A problem is that the bottles have to be immersed in a water bath, which destroys most labels.  Even if it doesn't dissolve the adhesive, if the ink is water-soluble, then there it goes. 

Maybe one doesn't need the water?  But how will the vibrations reach the liquid?  Just from the bottom of the bottle?

I say just stick with the microwave-shaking-time method.

and actually, I don't bother steeping at all, but then I mostly vape single-flavor juices.  Well, or fruit+menthol, which doesn't seem to need to steep.  Although... lately I've been switching between coffee and vanilla in my giant 28mm dripper, and the combo is... quite delicious...
Hey Todd, how's it goin'?

I have never been moved to get an ultrasonic cleaner, though it may actually be of benefit given all the stuff I do.

Being a tightwad and inventive I found these can work.

hit youtube for some heavy bass content like Tekmaster PEB, Stick a pair of these to a small plastic container and thump it mixed.

I have an ultrasonic cleaner like the type one uses to clean jewelry.  The only application as far as vaping goes that I have used it for is to clean some coils like the Aspire and the Vaporesso ceramics, as to juice mixing, I tend to use a BarMix blender at low speed, it really does the job.  Steeping depending on the flavour varies I have found, like for instance I have a rich fruit cake concentrate that will take a month or so to mature whereas some of my Honeycomb takes about a week.
