    Obviously e-cigs are a different product to the vapes that are being reviewed here, but I am curious to know if they ALL require nicotine juice to function?
    Are there any e-cigs that produce heaps of vapour clouds without having to put nicotine in them? Possibly another type of 'juice' that isn't as unhealthy? (or not unhealthy at all)

    And on that note, what is the best e-cig for the purpose that I described?

    You can get ejuice without nicotine. I found that vaping it was kind of pointless though personally. Same with vaping sheesha. It's cool at first but I found the novelty wore off pretty quickly personally. Actually in places such as Japan the juice without nicotine is much more easy to get hold of than that containing nicotine. Ecigs are still illegal in many countries and e juice containing nicotine even more so.

    Thanks for the reply. The novelty in most things will always wear off, you are right. Just a thought though!
    I do feel like the novelty of HUGE vape clouds like in the pic I posted may not wear off for me.. haha, but only time could tell.
    Any additional info on these devices and their e-juice is appreciated :)

    They actually have cloud competitions for e-cigs! Most of those people are using non-nicotine e-juices.

    There are thousands more variations on e-cigs than there are vaporizers here. It's kinda overwhelming. The guy clouding above probably is using a specialized device called a mod, basically a high powered rechargeable battery with an atomizer using rebuild-able coils. I use an e-cig all the time, but it's much more basic. Any good head shop will have e-cig vapes.

    Chasing clouds involves a steep learning curve. Battery safety considerations, and some electrical science & math. The guys at the vape meets and cloud competition usually vape plain Glycerin USP, without any nicotine, and rarely any flavor.

    I find vaping very relaxing, even if there is nothing psychoactive in it. It is awesome at night, watching thick huge plumes slowly rolling across the street.

    I usually vape 0, 3, or 6mg nic in my ejuices. Like 215z I find it relaxing and in the morning a lil 6 mg juice with some coffee can help jump start my brain and knock the sleep out of my eyes. I do find that if you are heavily vaping the next day some times I cough and clear my throat a bit of what I assume is VG. Then again I don't T-break, I love using the lotus and I dab too so YMMV.

    That pic is probably someone vaping at around 120 watts or more so probably almost 12x the power capablity of a standard vv pen style ecig. I am running at around 80 watts with rayon wicking on a mech mod. The flavor is really good, and the clouds are less dense then what you have pictured there but it can guzzle juice like a dragster runs through fuel :) . Like 215z said though if you want to cloud chase with a mech mod you HAVE to do some research on batteries, ohms laws, electrical theory, etc. A lot of cloud chasers are even using the 26650 batteries that can take up 50 amp continuous discharge so they can build subohms below the .1 range. Check out the ecf or calivapers forums for tons of info on safe cloud chasing. :tup:

    Have fun be safe and feel free to drop me a pm if you need any help.

    @215z and @Jethro I heard about a cloud competition where they did a 24 mg nic challenge.... Fuck that :lmao:
