2013 Darwin Award Candidate

There is nothing wrong with making your own ecig mods, but please do a little research first. Stay away from consumer grade alkaline disposable batteries, like shown in this ‘How to Not Make an Ecig Video’. Also stay away from Radio Shack type lithium rechargeable batteries made for cameras and other consumer electronics, as they are not designed for the high amp demands of the electronic cigarette. A good place to learn about batteries is, Battery University and we’ve also discussed it in a blog as well.

Google is your friend… Please don’t be dumb!

                    I cringed just looking at that. I mean, seriously?!? Just the harm it could cause is bad enough if someone runs into this and tries it. Then of course the inevitable article that would end up as “Electronic Cigarette blows up and sends man to hospital”. Sigh…

                      What an idiot Saw this posted on Youtube. At least most people that left comments on Youtube know better and told him so.

                        And suddenly, I don’t feel so insecure about my ecig knowledge.

                          Wow. I don’t know much, but this guy is missing a few marbles.

                            what he’s doing is dangerous and all…

                            but i couldn’t help but crack up at how ghetto-tastic that set up is…

                            i mean come on! just buy a freakin’ ego & some e-liquid…

                            VG & vanilla extract from rite-aide…too funny…

                            worst modder ever.

                              sad that this is on youtube… pretty sure that all of us sane-ish vapers have flagged it/him

                                Mike Z on May 5th, 2013 11:13 pm

                                I don’t even know what to say about this. I just hope someone as idiotic as him doesn’t try to attempt this. That’s all the real vapers need.

                                  Ugg. Here I’m trying to make my first box mod and you guys have to post this? I thought we were supposed to be getting smarter as we humans evolve! This just proves Darwin was right. He would never have made it without civilization to keep him from the higher food chain animals!

                                    He just commented and still…instead of TAKING IT DOWN, he put up some BS disclaimer in the description and called us all haters >shrug< What a moron…

                                      All I can say is wow. Eternal stupidity captured in 1’s and 0’s for posterity. 🙂

                                        he seems like a real sharp cookie…

                                        hey, everyone, a hint, free advice from a friend, if you will… if you make a Youtube video, NOBODY cares how many times you tried (FAILED) to shoot the video before or what went wrong that last time, it’s obviously hard enough to make an ecig review/tutorial vid without it being a little bit awkward, don’t put that giant hurdle up at the starting line…

                                          Sonar505 on May 6th, 2013 4:17 pm

                                          Wow just Wow! Until this video I did not think it was possible to show the wrong way on every aspect of vaping in one video but this guy proved me wrong. From his equipment choices to his mixing technique how can one person be so dumb. The only way is if someone follows any of his advice

                                            What a bonehead. I remember seeing this a while back and thinking it was some sort of goof or satire, but after seeing it again, I guess the guy was serious and even proud of his accomplishment. Jebus…. 😉

                                              is it not much easier just to press a button to fire up.your ecig…..NO lets just touch this wire here and BOOOOM.
