This month our very own vaping detective “Sherlock Ohms” is here to answer some of your pressing questions regarding all things vape.
Tony from Gateshead has asked:
“Dear Mr Ohms, I love all things sub ohm vaping and I’m looking to finally make the move towards an RDA. Can you recommend any good’uns?”
“Good question! We’d recommend something with a two-post velocity deck as other variations can be tricky to build on - especially when Watson has hidden all the 22 Gauge Kanthal wire and you’ve been at the opium! To start off: try the “Wotofo Sapor”.
Mrs M Hudson from Baker Street wrote to us asking:
“Sherlock, I’m popping to the shops - would you like custard creams or chocolate hobnobs?”
“My goodness woman, can’t you see I’m solving the case of my life. I’ve almost cracked who keeps stealing my latest issue of Subohm Magazine….. and Chocolate Hobnobs are obviously the superior biscuit.”
Christine from Chilton has queried:
“I just don’t get it, Sherlock! I keep having to buy rechargeable batteries at an alarming rate! I’m running two 18650 3000 MaH in my Limitless Arms Race with OBS V Tank at 150 watts. I’m barely getting a day before having to change batteries. Am I just buying faulty batteries, or is there a larger issue at fault?”
“It could be down to a number of issues Christine: the way you charge and store your batteries is a common cause of low battery life. It’s also important to remember that, with rechargeable objects, the law of diminishing returns means that all rechargeable batteries will eventually be rendered unusable. I would theorise, however, that if you’re caning a two battery mod with a maximum output of 200W, at 150W for the entire day, then a day’s use out of each pair of batteries is about right.”
Javier from East London wants to know:
“Well, well Sherlock Ohms - the Defective Detective himself. If you’re so clever tell me this: why is it my nan, who started vaping after smoking for fifty years, died from lung cancer? These vapes are dangerous and should be banned. All my friends agree with me.”
“Aha, if it isn’t my old foe, Moriarty… your trickery won’t fly here, you contemptuous swine! The vape community, and our readers, are a level headed bunch who would never fall for this kind of inflammatory remark. Also, we know you don’t have any friends, so sod off!”
Suzanne from Chorley Wood remarks:
“I left my house this morning with my new Smok TFV12 loaded and ready to go, however, halfway down the road I began to experience a burnt taste on inhale so, I returned home to grab my back-up. To my shock I was confronted by my husband applying lipstick wearing my new black cocktail dress and stretching out my Jimmy Choo, three inch, stilettos! Sherlock, I’m at a loss, what shall I do?”
“This is easily fixed. Ensure that you properly break in coils, through the act of priming and, in the case of Smok coils, I’d recommend leaving them in a full tank of juice overnight before firing, followed by a few hours use at a lower wattage.”
