Is vaping peer pressure a real thing?
We all have been through middle school and high school and faced some type of peer pressure. Some people are strong and stand up against it while others just care too much about what people think of them. It works the same way with vaping peer pressure.
Some kids cannot say no to people who they hang out with. This causes a problem when kids think illegal things are “cool”. Whether it is vaping or drugs, it is a problem that is a little overlooked.
Adults who do studies on teen vaping, often do not look at the aspect of peer pressure. They just look at a number of teens who vape.
In reality, it is a bigger problem than vaping peer pressure. The problem is kids who look to others to validate their worth.
Why Vape Devices Blow Up
Cop Will Not Be Charged for Shooting a Man With a Vape Mod
Here is Why Vape Devices Blow Up. All over the internet, there are posts about vape devices blowing up and people getting hurt. Even though it is very unfortunate that people are getting hurt, most of the time it is user error.
You can tell it is user error because almost all the time you see a vape device blow, it is a RDA on a mech mod or even a regulated mod.
People say all vapes are bad because they blow up, but if you look at the post and see similarities, you will notice a few things. These things greatly explain why these devices are blowing up.
Why Vape Devices Blow Up
They are mostly mechanical mods. Mechanical mods are great for getting raw power and big clouds. I do believe that mechanical mods make the biggest clouds, but they are the most dangerous because they are taking power directly from the battery. Mechanical mods that have a battery reading to low will cause the battery to blow up. It is that simple.
People have coil builds that are too low ohms. Ohms is the electrical reading that displays how much power it takes to heat up the coils. It also will give you an idea of how hot the vapor will be. If the ohm reading is too low your battery will heat up and could possibly explode.
People just do not know how to build vape coils and the safety behind it. Do not go below .10 ohm for any battery or device. Make sure you have name brand batteries. I always go with a Samsung 25r. It is the best battery in my opinion.
Always test your coils with an ohm reader and never run a coil build that is too low in ohms. Always Vape Safe!
Cop Will Not Be Charged for Shooting a Man With a Vape Mod. In EL Cajon there was a police officer who shot and killed a man. The subject who was killed was an alcohol and cocaine user, jus happened to point a vape mod at the officer like a gun. Again the officer will not be charged because deadly force was deemed acceptable.
The officer last year shot and killed an unarmed black man. Even though he has shot and killed another human last year, this shooting with the vape device was completely justified by the district attorney. I do not care who you are, but anyone who points something at a cop like a gun is asking for it.
I do not care who you are, but anyone who points something at a cop like a gun is just asking for trouble. Police officers are out to protect citizens and themselves, so if someone appears to point a gun at an officer they are probably going to get shot.
Police officers are put in situations where they have to make split-second decisions and this is one of them. It is sad that someone lost their life, but he proposed a threat to the police officer.
The father of the man who was killed said he was shocked that a police officer could shoot and kill a person and not be arrested. Personally, I feel anyone in their right state of mind would see this as justified. The guy pointed the vape at him like a gun. The vape was silver and from a distance probably looked like a gun.
After the man was killed, they tested his blood. In his blood, they found cocaine and alcohol. He was probably acting crazy as well and was not in his right state of mind. It is very unfortunate that he lost his life, but he threatened the officer and the officer defended himself.
Fused Twisted Clapton Vape Wire- Stainless Steel
VAPE STORE-How To Find a Great Vape Store !
Fused Twisted Clapton Vape Wire made with stainless steel. This is one of my first stainless steel builds because I normally use kanthal or nichrome. The colors on stainless steel is probably my favorite part of this build. It came out to .17 ohms, which was exactly where I wanted it.
Fused Twisted Clapton Vape Wire How TO
This build is pretty simple but it does take some concentration for making the clapton part. It is a little hard because the wire is twisted and it wants to helix the wire not claptonize it.”Hey! I just made that word up” I just took it slow at first then sped it up.
I started off with 28 gauge stainless steel for the core/fuse wire. I wanted it a higher gauge because I did not want this build to be extremely low ohms. The higher gauge did work but you might be able to get away with 26 gauge.
I cut one piece that was about 2.5 feet long. I folded it in half and stuck it in a drill chuck. I then started twisting it and twisted it a little bit but not a lot. Twisting it a too much could cause the wire to get hard and not bend a lot, kinda like this Nickel build. That nickel build was good for what it is but I did not want this wire to get hard.
I then used 32 gauge for the clapton part of this Fused Twisted Clapton Vape Wire build. I do not really like higher gauge wire for claptons because they are a little too thin for me. Start really slow and make sure your wraps are doing good. You can start to go faster after you got the technique down, just do not let it helix instead of clapton.
I used a 7/64 drill bit and did 5 wraps. They have a really cool color and chuck clouds. It is pretty low ohms so make sure your battery can handle this low ohms. Vape Saft
There has been a National Park Vaping ban. You can no longer vape in a national park. The ban has come from the ban on smoking in National Parks, even though vaping is not the same thing as smoking.
The National Park Services (NPS) says vaping is still an unknown and may cause health related problems in not vapers. As crazy as that sounds, that is what they are proposing.
Vaping out in the open does not affect anyone besides the vaper. Vapor evaporates too fast to cause an area to be filled with vapor. It is a little crazy and I am still trying to think about their logic behind the National Park Vaping Ban.
Vaping still has not been proven to be harmful. Vaping is even less harmful outdoors because the risk of second-hand vape is minimized. Inside there is such thing as second-hand vape but not outside.
I do get that some people do not what people blowing clouds in their face. I too do not like it when people blow big huge clouds in my vape. That part is all about respect and not health problems. Please be respectful when you vape around other people.
The National Park Vaping Ban is not a big deal.
I have never seen a person vape in a national park, nor have I heard of anyone vaping in a national park. It is a little annoying how they say vaping is like smoking tobacco, which it is not. Vaping is completely different and I just wish the government would see that. But for now, we just have to follow the rules and keep vaping.
Always vape respectfully because it shields a good light on vaping. The last thing we need is the whole world thinking vapers are jerks and do not care about anyone. We are human beings just like everyone else. Vape on!
Here is a pretty sweet Braided Kanthal Vape wire I made. Braided kanthal has a few distinct characteristics which differ from other kanthal builds. It almost reminds me of a Clapton build, it is not quite exact. Braided Kanthal Vape wire wicks a little better than Clapton wire in my opinion. The clouds are not the biggest, but you can still win cloud competitions with them. I did make them have a gloss finish with sand paper. It came out to be a very low ohm builds so make sure your battery can handle it. Always vape safe and never overload your batteries.
How to make Braided Kanthal Vape wire
This wire is kinda a pain to make if you do not have a vise or something else to hold the wires firmly down. Getting a small vise is not hard and can normally be found at a hardware store for like$15-$20.
I started by cutting 3 pieces of 28 gauge AWG Kanthal Wire at 2 feet long. The overall length is going to be around 7/8th of a foot when you get finished.
Fold wires in half and twist all three pieces together. It is very important to get them even because it makes it a lot easier to braid the wire when they are even.
Start braiding them and keep the braid tight. I keep it tight by pushing the wires back at a 90-degree angle. Always have the same amount of tension on the wire at all times. You mess up you could end up making the Braided Kanthal Vape wire unusable.
It takes me about 10 minutes to braid a foot when I work it non-stop. The build came out to .08 ohms for a 10 wrap single coil. It has lots of wire mass and a slower than normal ramp up time. I would only use this on a regulated mod or a parallel box mod. I do not think there is a single battery that can handle this low ohm by itself. Vape safe and Blow big clouds.
