My brother was telling me about how it is going to be regulated and how we won't be able to make or buy our juice like we can now. The small amount of juice you can have in a refill container is ridiculous. It is going to completely change how we vape isn't it?
I'm hoarding mechanical mods and rebuildables. Also, now we have the new freezer I'm ready to buy a couple of litres of nic each. I'm a bit stuck when it comes to flavours - DH is OK, he likes a big variety, most of which are available as DIY flavours so we can stock up on those. I'm still hooked on Hangsen RY4 mixed with RY6. RY6 isn't available as a flavouring so I'm on the lookout for an alternative. I'm hoping it'll still be possible to import.
I think while the 10ml refill containers will be a total pain, it's the leak-proof tamper-proof tanks that will be the biggest problem.
Doesn't appear so far that imports from outside eu will be affected but to be on safe side we've been stocking up on mods and rebuildables. The draft refilling guidelines just published, want either 10ml bottles with a 1cm tip smaller than the hole of the tank or a docking system. Plenty of lee way there plus I'll just be decanting small bottles into bigger ones. May not be as many eliquid vendors or flavours and any that are left will be charging lot more than at present I reckon.
Well that looks irritating but not insurmountable. It's going to be a PITA decanting loads of tiny bottles into a sensible sized one at 20 drops / minute unless you cut off the non-detatchable nozzle. I love 'Whereas: (6)' - here's an idea we've had, if anybody has a better one, please let us know
I haven't heard much lately about the tamper-proof requirement, have you?
Only issue for diy is the nic although no surprise TPD doesn't address this. No way nic @ 7.2% would be allowed in litres if 1.8% restricted to 10ml. Could be wholesale allowed for licencees tho, loopholes possible.
I'm half-way through putting in a mahoosive FT order and I have a question. I'm tempted by regulated box mods with removable batteries like this but I'm wondering how long I can reasonably expect the electronics to continue working and whether I would be better just focusing on mechanical mods for the long term. Does anybody know? I have a Vamo V5 that's been lurking in a drawer for 2 years and still works so I'm sort of hopeful.
No idea really Plenty , it's buttons, screens and threads that go on mine. Just keeping everything for a rainy day. Bound to be a thriving cottage industry in repairs. As it happens government response to TPD consultation just published www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/489981/TPD_Cons_Gov_Response.pdf , looks like the bare minimum of TPD requirements so not as bad as it could've been. Waiting for more knowledgeable folk than me to pick the bones out of it.
magimedi Initial scrutiny seems to suggest only cigalikes, tanks and eliquid(containing nic) subject to TPD regs. Everything else notification only so mods, batteries, wire etc. will be fine. Complete kits will regulated. Subject to change of course but appears very light touch so far. Only thing so far on market kitwise that might be allowed is the vuse docking thing from r j reynolds.
