Victorians and Friends - Fight for your right to vape! August 02 2016

Afternoon Wickheads, we hope you're all having a great day!

Attention Victorians (well, really everyone!) - Fight for your right to vape.

Do you enjoy coming into one of our retail stores, or other speciality retailers in Victoria for a vape, to try flavours and to find out what's new? Did you start out vaping by calling or emailing us with questions needing guidance on where to start? Have you ever gone "what does this button do" "what coil do I need" "what does variable wattage or temp control do" and asked us for help?

Under proposed legislation you will no longer be able to vape in store, try anything at the juice bar (well there won't be one) and we won't be able to display products or even tell you what's new in store. We won't be able help you set up your new device, recommend a device or upgrade for you or tell you what your current or new device does. Seriously. It's utter madness.

We know a lot of you came to us before you started vaping and were confused, not knowing where to start, how to set up your device or sometimes how to turn it on of off, and now you're doing well. We want to be able to continue to help new people - like you once were - know where to start, what device is best for them and how to change things like coils or the wattage on their mod. 

The owners of Wick & Wire Co. were recently invited to Parliament to have their say on the proposed legislation to add personal vapourizers into the tobacco legislation. The changes to the legislation have already been passed through the lower house, and in 3 weekson the 18th August the bill will be presented to the upper house. This will be our last chance to act, and time is not on our side.

So what can you do?

Write a letter to your local MP's and representatives of the upper house. Share your vaping story and how the changes will affect you. Tell them you want to be able to get help when you need it. Tell them you want to be able to try flavours and support local businesses. It is literally a 5 minute exercise, but every email helps. The contact details are below so if you feel so inclined send your letter to all the upper house reps. Let them know how you feel about being lumped in with the smokers. Let them know your story.

Need email addresses - we've got them for you. Just cut, paste and send - it's too easy!

High VG vs High PG August 01 2016

We get a lot of people who come into the store asking us about High Vegetable Glycerine (VG) and High Propylene Glycol (PG) liquids.

 

In short

High VG = More Vapour and thicker liquid

High PG = More throat hit and thinner liquid

50/50 ratio = Best of both worlds

 

Most e-juices come in 50/50 ratio, although if you are looking for a higher VG version of anything 50/50 you can purchase a doubler and add VG to it to make it a 75 VG / PG ratio.

The thing to remember when looking at High VG juices is can your coil handle it. Most coils under 0.5 ohm are ok with higher VG juices as they heat at a higher temperature which VG needs to vapourise. Any coil over a 0.5 we recommend would be more suited to a 60 VG / 40 PG ratio at the very maximum as the thicker liquids take more power and time to heat, which will burn out a higher ohm coil quicker.

On the flip side to this some people want more of a throat hit so we recommend no more than a 60 PG / 40VG ratio because if your liquid is too thin it can leak through the bottom of your tank (if it is bottom fill).

 


Getting the most out of your starter kit: The starters guide to Vaping July 07 2016

We speak to people every day who start vaping, but are unsure as to what the best practices are when it comes to looking after their new kit. Here are some tips to get the best life out of your mod.  www.wickandwireco.com.au

Basic Terminology:

Mod - is the part which holds your battery. This could be built in, or a removable battery. Each device is different.

Tank - is the part that holds your eliquid.

Drip Tip - is the part you suck on, to take in the eliquid.

Coil - is the part that heats your eliquid, creating vapor. This screws into your tank.

 

Some commonly asked questions we get are below, if we have sent you a link to this page from an email you have sent chances are it will help your issue.

 

How do I charge my new device? www.wickandwireco.com.au

Most devices we sell are able to be charged via USB plugged into a device such as a laptop or computer, Samsung (non fast) wall charger, or other USB charging port that charges under 1Amp. You can also get a stand alone wall / usb charger such as this one which will charge under 1Amp. You cannot charge any of the devices we sell on anything over 1Amp as this will kill the battery and void the warranty.

None of the devices we sell should be charged with an Apple charger as they run at different amperages and will not charge your device, and in some cases have been known to shorten battery life. Charging your device on an Apple charger will void the warranty. While plugging your device into an Apple charger may look like it is charging, it isn't.

How do I carry my 18650 battery? www.wickandwireco.com.au

If your device uses an 18650 battery (a removable battery such as a Samsung or Sony) then you should always use a battery case to carry it. Leaving batteries loose in your bag or pocket can vent them, which is not good. Don't do this as it puts your safety at risk.

Coil maintenance, and when to change your coil  www.wickandwireco.com.au
One of the questions we get asked the most is "when should I change my coil?". The answer isn't cut and dry, and will depend on how much you are using your vape, what kind of juice you are using in it (darker liquids have a higher sugar content, so may use up a coil quicker than a clearer juice), the PG & VG ratio you are using, and what wattage you are using your coil and mod at.

Generally speaking, most people will need to change their coil every few weeks but this can range from 1 day to 4 weeks. Your juice will start to either taste burnt, muted or like plastic - this is a good indicator of when your coil needs to be changed.

The other reason to change your coil regularly is that the cotton inside of it will break down and can cause leakage. If your tank is leaking, see below.

How to change your coil

(this is for bottom fill tank only, for top fill tanks or all in one units the process is slightly different in terms of where your coil is located but the principle is the same)

Unscrew your tank from the base of your mod

Unscrew the glass piece & top

Unscrew your old coil and dispose of in the bin

Take a new coil out from your packet

Put a couple of drops of eliquid into the top of the coil. The top is usually the part where you can see the cotton.

Leave this sit for 3-5 minutes, this is priming the coil.

Screw the coil back into your tank using the screw end (this can be top or bottom depending on your unit) and if needed refill your tank with your eliquid.

Before screwing the tank back onto the mod (or turning the mod back on if it is an all in one setup) take a few puffs on the tank. This will pull juice through the cotton and will give you less chance of burning a coil out.

You can also use this process when you change flavours in your tank to help the flavour change quicker.

 

When should I clean my tank?  www.wickandwireco.com.au

If you happen to burn out your coil, the juice in your tank can be spoiled. If you've changed the coil and still have a funny or burnt taste then it's time to clean your tank out. If your tank isn't "spitting" then it needs a clean. The easiest way to do this is as follows:

Unscrew your tank from the base of your mod.  www.wickandwireco.com.au

Unscrew the glass part and top part where your drip tip mouthpiece are.

Remove the drip tip by pulling it out.  www.wickandwireco.com.au

Unscrew your coil & put this to the side - you cannot wash this

Rinse all of the parts except the coil under lukewarm water, or soak for a couple of minutes in warm - hot water using a solution like Milton if you like.

Pat dry all the pieces with paper towel, paying attention to cleaning inside the bottom of the tank.

Once it is all dry reassemble it all together again, making sure that your coil is finger tight, and your tank is not too tight on your mod.

 

Why has my tank leaked?  www.wickandwireco.com.au

If you overfill your tank,  www.wickandwireco.com.au

Have flown with it or been at a different altitude,

Left your tank out in the sun on a hot day

Not changed your coil for a few weeks / months or

Used an RBA base with no cotton in it  www.wickandwireco.com.au

chances are your tank has leaked. If this has happened, follow the steps above to clean your tank and it should rectify your issue. 

If the issue is not fixed, you may need to change the O-Rings which are the rubber rings inside the tank. Certain juices that contain an acidic base (such as a fruit or citrus juice) may also wear down the O-rings. Remove these and change as required.

 

Why is my tank "spitting"

If the tank has been over filled, the device you are using has been fired before being put into your mouth, the tank is being fired at too low a wattage or if the coil is too tight for your draw (I.E. a mouth to lung coil when you should be using something looser) then your tank may experience a build up of liquid in the top and around the drip tip.

This happens because the tank & coil needs a certain amount of air circulation to work properly. If a tank is being fired but not drawn on, then the vapour has nowhere to go but build up inside the top of the coil and around your drip tip. If you need to draw too hard then residual juice can build up around the sameness places.

The simplest solution for this is to clean the tank as above, paying special attention to the drip tip, underneath the drip tip and the top of the coil by lightly dabbing it with a cotton bud which should remove the excess liquid. 

If the issue is because you are drawing too hard on the tank, like trying to suck a thick shake through a thin straw, then we recommend you switch to a lower ohm coil with a looser draw, or opening the airflow on your tank (if it is adjustable)

 

My mod says "No atomizer"  www.wickandwireco.com.au

Chances are your tank is not screwed down onto your mod properly - you might have under or over-tightened your tank onto your mod, as this is an error message that comes up when your tank is not connecting.  www.wickandwireco.com.au

Check that your coil is screwed in finger tight and straight, and that the tank is also finger tight on your mod. Your tank should be easy to remove without force, if it is tightened down too much it can break the connector pin, which is not good.

Where do I get Nicotine?

Nicotine is illegal to sell, supply & gift in Australia. We have a very comprehensive guide on where you can source your own Nicotine for personal use here.

Perino flavours aren't the norm - with combinations such as Rhubarb & Custard, Dark Chocolate / Peppermint and a Blueberry / Aniseed these flavours are sure to tantalise tastebuds.

A Guide to DIY E-juice Mixing March 07 2016

Hey Wickheads!

One of the topics we get asked about the most is how to mix your own eliquid. With the introduction of Flavour Concentrates to our Melbourne Vape Store, we decided that it's time to impart some of our wisdom onto you. Ruh-row, this person was naughty and stole this Content  from www.wickandwireco.com.au

What is a Flavour Concentrate?

Think of a Flavour concentrate as cordial. You use a minimal amount of it, mixed with Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerine to make an ejuice.

What is Flavour Concentrate made from?

Concentrates are made from both Natural and Artificial flavourings in a Propylene Glycol base. Some concentrates can also contain other additives & chemicals such as Acetoin, Acetyl Propionyl Ethyl Alcohol, Diacetyl and Butyric Acid. All of these are found in food substances such as butter, and you should do your own research into these items if you are concerned about any of these chemicals.  If any of our concentrates are known to contain these we will advise on a product by product basis.Ruh-row, this person was naughty and stole this Content  from www.wickandwireco.com.au

What will I need to start out mixing?

Flavour concentrates, Empty LDPE bottles, Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerine, 1ml Syringes and a clean work area. Remember, you are inhaling the liquid you make so you want the area to be free from dirt, animal hair and heat.

What flavours can I mix together?

This is up to you. You can mix anything that you would like, it's all about having fun when you're first starting out and learning from trial and error. There are no right or wrong flavours. Maybe start with your favorite fruit or jump straight in to try something more exotic!

How much of each flavour should I mix in?

Use a website such as http://e-liquid-recipes.com/flavors for information on flavour percentages and if you are looking for inspiration for a flavour you would like to make.

Why doesn't my mix taste like anything? Content by www.wickandwireco.com.au

If you have put in too little, or too much concentrate it will not taste good. Try adjusting your percentages. 

How do I know how strong each flavour is?

The easiest way to test this is to put 1 drop of concentrate into 10ml of water and test it. You should be able to see if the flavour is quite strong, or weak, and this will give you a hand on how much to adjust your percentages.

Content by www.wickandwireco.com.au

Tips on how to mix your own eliquid:

Use a website such as http://e-liquid-recipes.com/flavors for information on flavour percentages and if you are looking for inspiration for a flavour you would like to make.

Start low with your percentages, it's always easier to add more concentrate if you need it. Most mixes are ideal between 15 - 20% total flavour, but this will depend on the concentrates you are using and how strong they are. Content  from www.wickandwireco.com.au

Let a mix sit for at least a week before deciding whether or not it's "good". Some concentrates take time to blend with others, especially when it comes to creams, custards and chocolate flavours. This process is also know as steeping.

The easiest way to mix when you're first starting out is using a 1ml Syringe with an 18 gauge needle tip.

 

Happy mixing and until next time, keep it cloudy!

A Guide to Battery Safety January 06 2016

We quite often get asked about battery safety & what the best way to store batteries is for use with electronic cigarette or vaping devices in short. Here are some handy tips to keep you safe, especially leading into the warmer months!
Battery Safety

We don't want to sound like your parents, but safety is important especially when it comes to Batteries. Here are some tips to keep your batteries safe and secure, and get the best life out of them.

Do: When not in use keep them in a hard battery case designed to hold batteries
Don't: Leave batteries loose in a bag, pocket, suitcase, car console or other vessel. If they hit something metal like car keys they will go off.
Do: Store them in a cool, dark space when not in use
Don't: Leave them in direct sunlight

Do: Label them and use them in matched pairs when using in a device designed for 2 or more batteries
Don't: Use them in mismatched pairs, as this will shorten the lifespan of your batteries

Do: Buy a high discharge, reliable brand such as Samsung, LG, Sony.

Don't: Cheap out. If the batteries are too low a discharge they won't work or can damage your device, or worse.

For more information about battery safety please go to http://batteryuniversity.com/ or if you have any questions please email us at info@wickandwireco.com.au or pop into our vape retail store located at 218 Charman Road, Cheltenham 3192

To add to our existing range of eliquids made in melbourne we have added two new ejuice lines at Wick & Wire Co.

 Hey Wickheads!

Sorry everyone for no update last month, it's been manic at Wick & Wire Co. HQ! We're back now and here to update you.

 

Today we got the Smok X Cube II 160w in stock and let me tell you, she's a beauty. It includes the update which we were told would be a paid service where you can control the device from your iPhone or Android. It's pretty neat! Also in this week are the new Aspire Triton tanks which are great for those using variable wattage devices. Also arrived is the new Smok TFV4 Taste Furious Tank these are extremely customizable offering single, dual, triple and even quad coil options plus we will be also offering single and dual rebuildable base options as well. These tanks are built like a truck and offer multiple top airflow and bottom airflow options plus are top refillable too.

 

We also received in 2 awesome little setups - the Kanger Subox in Black and White which are great as an intermediate device or for those looking to get into variable's and who want to learn how to build their own coils, and the Joytech Evic VT which has proven a massive hit with those wanting to take the plunge into advanced box mod's. If your just looking for the Evic VT mod on it's own we also have the Joyetech Evic Express kit which is just the mod and you can bring your own favorite clearomizer or rebuildable atomizer.

 

Speaking of box mod's, over the coming weeks we're also getting in some cool new products like our new durable hard wearing canvas mod bags which are great for holding box mods like the Sigelei, Smok M80, iStick 100w & a bottle of juice, they can be attached to your jeans or shorts with the attached caribena for easy vape access on the go. All orders over $100 will receive one free or they will be $6.95 each. 

 

Lastly we now have our own vape mod bag. These are handy for putting all your vape gear in while on the go. They have are logo and fit most large box mods with some room left for a bottle of eliquid or spare coils. Check them out here or simply spend over $100 and get on free!

 

There's also a surprise or 2 coming soon, like some new e-juices that we've been testing and some other big surprises. Keep your eyes peeled.

Until next time, keep it cloudy!

Melbourne Vape Meet 28th June 2015 June 24 2015

Heading out to a vape meet being organised by the Melbourne Vape Community Facebook Page this coming Sunday 28th June. For those of you in Victoria, this is a great community to meet new people and talk about all things vape related.

I've been to the last few and there's always more and more people showing up to say hi. If you're new to vaping or want to advance your building skills or something in between it's a good place to be able to ask questions, as it's not always easy to find the help you need online.

As always I'll be bringing down some samples of some new juices that have been testing and look forward to people being able to try them. Hope to see some of you there!

 

If your attending come and say hello happy to discuss any of the Wick and Wire Co product line or answer any questions you may have about vaping and electronic cigarettes in melbourne.
