I have always found the majority of MBV flavourings very weak. I still have a 1ltr bottle of MBV Spearmint concentrate. MBV recommend to use it no longer that 1yr from manufacturer date. I just checked the date. It was made in 2014 and I was using up until late last year. I was using it to mask any other juice i didn't really like. I made a small batch two weeks ago and it tasted a bit funky. I got an extra 5yrs from it, so can't complain. I've never stored any of my flavourings in the fridge but i'd say if yours are only a year or two out of date, they should be fine. Only one way to find out!!!
Have a look around other shops that sell MBV, they may have some old stock left. If not and you have to look at other flavour makers, FlavourArt have some great flavours and have a great reputation in the DIY community. Their fruits are particularly good. They are pretty concentrated too and most people use them between 3-5%. Hope this helps.

Hey guys. From what I have heard from a few YouTube reviewers that I follow, it's ALL major postal companies in the US that will ban shipping of all vape products. Not sure of dates but I believe its the first quarter of this year. Vape shops can still receive their orders but can't ship to customers.

Finally did a little digging on this one.

Trump signed it, "in an effort to curb the vaping epidemic of kids."  Back in the summer of 2020.

Shipping of all vaping materials by UPS, USPS, FEDEX and the like, all end in the first quarter of 2021.

This includes, juice, coils, and all hardware.

The one company that I had been using for juice, a wholesale account, ended up charging me as much to ship as the cost of the purchase, end of Feb.  So, for each $ spent, an equal amount to ship.

Now that most of the shipping bans have went into effect, they're being forced to get legal documents for each customer to continue working towards a workaround.  Business licenses, Tobacco licenses, Tobacco permits, and more.  Just a heads-up, but a Tobacco license here in the state of Georgia literally costs thousands of dollars, requires proof of warehousing, and a ton of other palm greasing to get, so that old wholesale account of mine is going to be dead. 

Big Tobacco and Pharma seem to have won, what a fucking joke.

i personally wouldnt use them,  just did a search for food flavourings and how long they last https://shop.perfumersapprentice.com/flavorsworkshop/shelf_life.pdf

Treat yourself to some fresh ones  x:)x

I saw nothing in the reference that said they went bad from long storage. The concerns seemed to be about the flavors changing over time, as well as the rubber in dripper caps reacting with the flavoring.

I will probably buy new flavorings anyway. The major problem is that my favorite is from Mt Baker Vapor. They only sell "flavor shots" which apparently are not very concentrated since they recommended I start at about 20%. The PA and other flavor makers seem to recommend starting at anywhere from 2.5% to 5%.

I want to buy the Eleaf iStick Pico 75W TC VW APV Box Mod. People say it's durable and well made. I've been looking at this one at Fasttech:
https://www.fasttech.com/products/3032/10011027/4849000-authentic-eleaf-istick-pico-75w-tc-vw-apv-box-mod
I saw a YouTube video warning about clones of this mod. I don't want a clone. Does this seem authentic, or should I look elsewhere? Is the price too low for it to be authentic?

This is the video warning about the clones: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUoERMY-jVM

Thanks.

My experience with Fasttech is the same as caz's. If it is marked as authentic in the listing title, then it is the real thing.

The price looks right for the box itself without an included atomizer or battery.

scroll down the page and look at the reviews  people seem very happy with their purchase of this device.   In my experience of fast tech if they are listed as genuine they are.  My isticks were always the real deal.    Hopefully someone else will know more.

If they look, smell, and taste right I would use them.

I have a multitude of flavorings that I have been storing in my refrigerator for years.

Does anyone know how long they last or how to tell if they are still good?

The reason I ask is that I am down to my last 60 ml of MBV Green Apple and will need to buy more soon if the old flavorings I have cannot be used.
