If you bought a Halo G6 or a VaporFi Express, it’s easy to upgrade without changing providers and losing reward points. Both companies sell upgrades: the Halo Triton and VaporFi Air or Pro provide three examples. If you shopped with Green Smoke or White Cloud, you will either have to stick with their mini pens or switch companies. A number of brands make accessories for individuals who travel, like charging adapters for the car and portable charging cases for long journeys. Office workers or individuals who work from a laptop make excellent use of USB cigs.
You can buy an Express kit with 1 battery, 2 cartomizers, and a charger, but what’s the use of that? The battery is going to need recharging in under half a day. Use a disposable and if you like it buy a 2-battery starter set. As you examine eGo starter kits, you will notice two basic formats: the blister kit and starter kit with a case. Carry cases are available from many vendors and extremely handy for keeping small items in place. When they get knocked around, there’s a greater chance of things breaking, leaking, or getting lost. You might just want to work out the difference between a one-battery starter kit and a blister kit.
If it’s more than $10, you should buy the blister pack and purchase a case separately, but only if the hardware comes from a decent supplier. Kanger, Smok, Joye, Innokin, and Aspire are all good choices. It’s important for a mini cig kit to contain two batteries, but an eGo kit can come with 1 battery and still work all day, especially if that cell is rated 1100 mAh. With confidence, you can now say it’s time to upgrade. Don’t do it to impress your friends: eGos are cost-effective but gadget addicts will be sucked in by expensive APVs. There are so many ways to improve performance and appearance, many too small for most people to notice. Others are only important to people who consider vaping a hobby rather than an alternative to smoking. The average person who considers upgrading to a VW mod will stick with low watts: no more than 20. This is plenty for enjoying the relatively safe low-ohm vapor. You can do justice to high quality 30/70 propylene glycol/vegetable glycerin juices. Items like the Innokin iTaste MVP 3.0 and many other Innokin products, the eLeaf iStick 20W, and Volcano LavaTube 2.5 provide all a vaper needs without added cost or risk. I like to consider myself a pro on beating drug tests because I’ve passed numerous—even some close calls—while on probation, in prison, and on parole. I would have only tested positive for weed, but a dirty for marijuana could’ve sent me to “the hole” for 60 days or back to prison when I hit the street. I passed my first drug test when I was out on bond in 1991. I was getting ready to embark on a journey as a fugitive and had to pass the urine tests as a condition of my bond. But there was no way I was going to stop smoking marijuana. I went to the local head shop in Northern Virginia and bought a bottle of Golden Seal. I took the capsules, drank tons of water, and passed the test. I’m not an expert and I’ve never heard of a magic bullet, but from being involved with drugs, being around addicts and ex-addicts, and from my own experiences I know cocaine, heroin, and speed are all out of your system in a couple of days. The same for LSD, which I’m not even sure can be tested for. Weed is the tough one, though, especially for a hardcore smoker. THC stays in your body for up to three weeks or more if the person is hefty. The important thing to remember is to drink a ton of water and try to pee it out beforehand. You don't want to give them concentrated morning piss.
You want it as diluted as possible when you take the test. That’s what I’ve learned taking literally hundreds of urine tests. I’ve also written about the many ways that prisoners beat them. I took my last drug test in January 2016, when I got off federal probation, and I’ve been toking up ever since.
But with so many people getting drug tested these days and the outdated War on Drugs mentality still prevalent, it's still not a terrible idea to know how to beat these things when they come up. As such, I contacted two experts on the subject for VICE. Barry Cooper is a former drug agent and current drug expert/humanitarian who’s been featured on VICE before. He’s been teaching how to pass a drug test for over 12 years and has a website, Never Get Busted.
