Welcome to whole new lease on life my vaping friend. For me it has been since July of 2009. I did it with a 900mah ego battery and ce4 tankomizer. That was my first glimpse of what vaping would do for me. I took to it fast and within 6 months I was making my own eliquids, and rebuilding either a genesis or dripping atty. I used the first real tanks as well. It has certainly been a wonderful juorney so far. Making your own liquids is a very satisfying experience. When you make your first never before has this flavor of eliquid tatsed so good, its almost magical.
You will find all you need here to be successful with your vaping endeavors. Again welcome to the wide world of DIY.
