Yeah, China just keeps cranking the stuff out. I thought the prices might go up, post 8/8, but that hasn't happened (yet). My stocking up & buying has slowed to a trickle. I have pretty much everything I think I'll need, for my limited future (I'm 62).
I'd like to support US businesses as much as the next guy, but since 8/8 my attempts at picking up things that I thought were good deals, from US vendors was a pain in the ass, with the recent regs.
Last 4 of my SS number? A pic of me holding my drivers license next to my face?
Don't think so. Hello FastTech. Click, click click, and it's done. Might take a few weeks to get here, but that's ok.
@juice_junkie_lover - "I'm ok the search for mech mods. I never really got into them."
I was in the same boat, stocking up. At the time, I think I shy ed away from them, due to the safety issues and bad press. I didn't know any better, and the regulated mods I was using, were working fine. I never felt that I had an 'if all else fails' backup to my backups, if that makes sense. I started researching the mechs a little deeper. I've always had a good working knowledge with Ohms Law (electronics & ham radio). Once I applied it, I discovered my low power / higher resistance MTL style was not pushing my batteries at all, at 2.4 amps. Well below my HG 2 limits.
I decided to spring for 4 of the Beyond Vape Beacons, at $10 each. They're not my daily mods, but I pull one out occasionally and use it. It works fine for my flea power vaping, and I feel better knowing I have backups that will last, should my regulated stuff crap out, over time.
