Stupid Is As Stupid Does
« on: April 02, 2018, 11:47:16 PM »
We all do it, admit it!  We have something that we do in our vaping habits, that we know is wrong, yet we continue to repeat it.  What's yours?
 
 
 
Mine?  I forget and fill the tanks all the way full, even though I don't vape enough to finish it before the juice is overheated repeatedly by the heat in the vape chamber.  Thus leaving me with a 1/2 - 2/3 tank of crap for juice!!!! x} x} x}

I have my two isticks and my itaste MVP on the go at all times with my three fav flavours!  When I go out I take one for the car and that's when I should plug in the others!  But I usually forget!  I have on occasion ended up with none charged!  Yup Rik, "stupid is as stupid does".

Don't touch the coiling rod you use to adjust your Clapton coils after you have glowed them. The rod gets quite hot!!!

Good thread.. lets keep it going....

Something that has got me off guard a couple of times the last year is using a small dripper bottle I keep in my pocket for topping off a dry wick or emergency fill ups.

Every once in a while I get a soaked hand and device when the tip pops off..... lol and a flooded coil too.

You shouldn't be charging mods or batteries when they are unattended.

I keep all my charging equipment in a steel pan. So, maybe I am not so worried about my batteries and iSticks being on their chargers unattended. Stupid? We'll see.



BTW, my charging station, besides siting in a steel pan, is located in a room with two independent fire suppression systems: FM-200 (gas fire suppression) and wet sprinklers. (I know water is not the thing for lithium (or any reactive metal) fires, but sufficient water, well distributed,  will prevent the fire from taking hold on ordinary flammables which may be nearby.)

EDIT: The USB 6-port, 2.3 A/port, power supply is on a timer which disconnects it after 3 hours, so the iSticks don't sit there charging indefinitely.

Never thought of plugging my chargers into a timer, I have one that turns things on so will have to look for one that turns things off.

Here are two from the US Amazon site. It looks like the critical search words are [ countdown timer switch ].

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001DD7YSE/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01D3QEK4E/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The good news is: they seem to be cheap. I have one of each; the one I use most (and for vape-charging) is the top one.

New stupid is, while recoiling and wicking my Bezerker Mini I had to stop frequently 'cause my hands were shaking too much.  Each time I stopped I kept grabbing my mod to take a vape, without the RTA attached. :}}} :}}} :}}}

Here's an interesting additional data point: Read the Wikipedia article on Intention Tremor and note the description - low frequency (about 5 "shakes" per second or fewer) and direction (perpendicular, or crossways, to the direction of intended movement) and decide if this applies to you. If so, further note that one of the (many) factors that can exacerbate this problem is "cigarettes" (by which I assume they mean nicotine). I have some amount of Intention Tremor (IT) much of the time - enough to spill things off my fork while eating sometimes. It seems to be worse for me when I am trying to do delicate work (for me this may be soldering on tiny electronic connections, tiny mechanical assembly, but has included coiling an e-cig). I have noticed that my IT can get worse if I take a few puffs to "calm my nerves" - the hoped-for cure can do just the opposite: make things worse. Of course not being able to do something I always used to be able to do (like put a clock back together or solder a tiny electronic connection that needs my OptiVisor to see properly) can cause stress (which is another thing that can make IT worse).

Note well that IT is quite specific; there are plenty of other things that can cause your hands to shake, in which case you would have to look elsewhere for the cause and which things make it worse. For instance, I also have a shake that moves along (not perpendicular to) the direction of intended movement. This seems to be more closely related to tension and requires relaxing to make it abate.
