Q: Why am I not getting any smoke from my juice. What can cause the Juice to stop working go off ?.

Ans: While I have not seen any juice go off personally. The number one problem with high VG juices I have seen is how fast they absorb water. This is one reason why we do not add any water to our juices. Whiles most Juice makers typically add about 10% of ionised water or distilled water. A juice can absorb too much water just from leaving the cap off for a few hours. Once this happens there is no way to remove the moisture from the Juice. You have to throw it. You can still smoke it but there will be little or no vapour. And the nic strength will also be diluted.
Best way to ensure this does not happen is to keep your juice with an air tight cap on at all times.

Q: The Eleaf meter comes with an adaptor for 510 tanks. Which way should it be used. It fits both directions.
Ans: The way you screw it on depends on the type of tank / connector your testing.
If your testing a kayfun/orchid/dripper where the center pin projects outside the 510 connector. Then you screw it on with the pointy bit to the meter and the large round flat bit to the tank.
If your testing a Kanger Tech where the center pin is recessed inside the 510 connector. Then you flip the connector and keep the pointy center bit facing the tank.

Q: Why no custard flavors ?.
Custard is the easiest and most popular flavor for high VG users world wide.

Ans: We dont do a custard for the same reason we pulled our most popular Cheese flavor. Because its not 100% safe.
The reason its so popular is because its so easy to make. Adding Acetoin and Acetyl Propionyl, in small qty is enough to create a strong flavor.
But these chemicals turn into Diacetyl with time.
Some companies use Butyric Acid but we do not consider this chemical safe either. It can be very irritating to the lungs.

Q: Can a just harm my tank ? Or damage my Tank ?

Ans: No if you have a proper tank ie Glass or Steel The juice can not damage your tank
The worst that can happen is you can clog your coil Even this is no big drama as you just wash your coil and do a dry burn and your back to normal

If your using a Plastic Tank Then yes some Indian flavors can crack a plastic tank Just pick USA based flavors.
VG does not damage anything

What flavors are heavy on coils

a Double Dutch gunks coils

Other than any Double Dutch I dont think any of the flavors gunk coils As a rule dark flavors and organic flavors are known to gunk your coils.
If I had to pick between a chocolate that gunked my coils and one that did not. Which one do you think Id chose ?. I know what you guys chose.

Id chose the Gunker Juice and run it in a dripper or a Kayfun cause
a. I can clean my coils in under a minute
b. The gunkers normally are due to organic flavors or extracts so I trust them way more than some chemical that tastes like chocolate.

Q: Why do high VG juices seem to have less flavor

A: Well actually high VG juices normally have more flavor than PG juices. In fact you could never mix so much flavor with PG.
It may seem faint to your tounge. But that is only because VG creates a very dense cloud which lands up coating your tounge. Hence reducing its ability to detect flavor.

So how do you fix this. Well there are only two ways.
1. You use more PG and less VG
2. You use an absurd amount of flavor / Chemicals.

We understand some people like to do stuff which may not be good for them. This is why the Indian Line of flavors tend to be stronger with more flavor used. And the USA line is milder with less flavor used.
