  • How To Shake N Vape ?

    How to shake and vape

    Shake ‘N’ Vape – Do I start by doing a jig whilst puffing on my Pockex or my Cleito? – NO..

    The Tobacco Products Directive (TPD for short), another lovely European law – Just like the one outlawing bent bananas ! - That states ‘in layman's terms’ that eliquid/juice cannot be sold in a bigger bottle than 10ml, if it contains nicotine..

    Ok.. So how about selling a zero nicotine flavour that – should you wish to add nicotine to it – can be legally much bigger than 10ml?!! Shazamm ! That’s it really.. No one can stop you.. Just like if you choose to add whiskey to a can of coke.. With MyCiggy Juice & Coil Co that equals fantabulous value-for money, within either 6 or 12 minutes of preperation!

    Now, selling you a VG/PG Flavour and telling you, ‘you could add nicotine to it’ is a big no-no on our part.. The Govt/Trading Standards/Law/Police may say if we showed you how to add nicotine, or even did it on your behalf, that could be construed with selling you a big bottle including the nicotine content, bigger than 10ml (i.e Like we did before May 20th 2017) – & that would be really, really bad & even criminal on our part. We would or will never, ever, recommend that you ‘ MODIFY’ any juice/eliquid in that manner – Clearly that is naughty and totally wrong as professional E-Cig hardware & Juice sellers.

    As of now (August 2017) telling you HOW to ‘Modify’ big cheap bottles of tasty quality favoured juice is totally legal.. So, although MyCiggy Juice & Coil Co can't & would never recommend it, the following steps work very, very well, if you chose to Shake it ’N’ Vape it !……


    Nic shot eliquid graphic

    1. Remove the top of your Diacetyl free, VG & PG tasty flavour Mix
    2. Add Your 10ml ‘Nic Shot’ & replace the big bottle top and tighten (I remove the pouring nipple on the Nic-Shot for speed!)
    3. Shake it like a polaroid picture for a minute
    4. Leave standing for 5 mins
    5. For a 120ml Short-fill bottle you will need to repeat steps 1,2, 3, & 4 once again - 100ml of Flavour (120ml short-fill bottles) requires 2x Nic shots of 18mg Nic & 80ml (100ml short-fill bottles) require 2x Nic shots of 15mg Nic... However 50ml / 60ml short-fill bottles only need 1x 18mg Nic shot.

    Now, 2x nic shots in a 120ml short-fill bottle (100ml of Flavour & 120ml of capacity!) will equal approx, 3mg of nicotine after the full 12 minutes, but you will find that after 12 minutes plus a further 24 hours, the flavour becomes more ‘Bold’ due to ‘Steeping’/blending time. 12 minutes is all you need to crack on and vape though! Clearly in the case of a 50ml bottle the time-frame is halved to 6 minutes because you'll only be adding 1x Nic-Shot bottle NOT 2x as in the 80ml Flavour / 100ml Bottle size & 100ml Flavour / 120ml Bottle size short-fill!

    Here are some examples of lovely Zero Nicotine Juices >> Spook Sauce and Pick-n-mix and Ice-Cream-Van and Biscuit Man and FizZz

    MyCiggy Juice & Coil Co would never recommend ‘Modifying’ your eliquid. Clearly any eliquid consumed should be done so, in line with the manufacturers’ recommendations, and EU Law. Shake-on-Vapers.. M

  • Best Watt setting for eCig Tank Coils - Plain English


    When MyCiggy started getting into e-cigs and accessories in 2012, knowledge for the consumer to remember was simply limited to: 5 clicks to turn the battery on and off, how to charge the battery, not to overfill the clearomiser and avoid getting any eliquid down the central ‘inhale’ pipe!!

    Move onto 2016 and the business has dramatically changed. MODS or modified ecigs are here to stay… Eliquid tanks with replaceable coils, coils with various ohms ratings, Battery wattage outputs topping 200 watts + !! Really.. Why do you need all this power for a cheeky vape! This can all get rather confusing to the average Joe…

    With the advent of MODS hitting the market most were, and still are, quite big heavy setups that didn’t really suit the average man on the street as they simply weren’t pocketable. The big advantage of mods with sub-ohm capability (Using a coil below 1.0 Ohm) is that the flavour is massively more flavoursome (Obvs Juice dependant) and the consumer requiring far less Nicotine in MOD Juice than a regular button push ecig.

    For example I smoked 40-a-day and for years have been on 18mg nicotine – When I swapped over to a MOD 18mg crashed down to 3mg – With no noticeable nicotine craving – It’s as simple as: More vapour created = less nicotine needed!

    With the introduction of the first ‘Mini’ MOD – Ego AIO - the pocket sized revolution is here and average ecig vapers are staring to swap over to a more flavoursome MOD Experience.

    However getting back to basics, we all want our vaping experience to be a pleasant one with no burning tastes and a hardware setup to suit us!

    The confusion it seems, is now educating people with adjustable wattage batteries with which size coil to put in their tanks and what wattage the battery needs to set at for the optimum performance, and not tasting like burning twigs !

    Based on Ohms Law here is how you would simply work it out

    The Magic Number I prefer to use is 17.64 Divided by the ohms rating of the Coil ! Here are some examples:

    1. 0.3 ohms coil = 17.64/0.3 = 58.8 Watts

    2. 0.6 ohms coil = 17.64/0.6 = 29.4 Watts

    3. 0.75 ohms coil = 17.64/0.75 = 23.52 Watts

    4. 0.15 ohms coil = 17.64/0.15 = 117.6 Watts

    Now for the technical amongst you this is a rough calculation based on the max fully charged battery output of 4.2v. So 4.2 x 4.2 = 17.64 - Yes I know there are variances BUT they are only small ones and as a rough guide you can always fine tune by taste.

    Some may use this calculation based on 3.7v – The magic number then changes to 13.69 – With experience fully charged batteries can kick out 4.2v when fully charged so that’s why I prefer 17.64 over 13.69 as my magic number!!

    The Magic Number of 13.69 can also be divided by the ohms rating of the Coil ! Here are some examples:

    1. 0.3 ohms coil = 13.69/0.3 = 45.63 Watts

    2. 0.6 ohms coil = 13.69/0.6 = 22.81 Watts

    3. 0.75 ohms coil = 13.69/0.75 = 18.25 Watts

    4. 0.15 ohms coil = 13.69/0.15 = 91.26 Watts

    In summary.. Whichever magic number suits the fully charged output of your battery, here’s the optimum wattage setting parameters:

    1. 0.3 ohms coil = 45.63 to 58.8 Watts

    2. 0.6 ohms coil = 22.81 to 29.4 Watts

    3. 0.75 ohms coil =18.25 to 23.52 Watts

    4. 0.15 ohms coil = 91.26 to 117.6 Watts

    You can find MyCiggy's range of replaceable mod coils HERE

    At least you are in the right ballpark and not aiming for a naaasty ‘Dry-Hit’ running a 0.6 Ohm coil at 80 Watts!

    MyCiggy are REALLY getting into this MOD E Cig malarkee!.. We have seen, touched & used most of the E Cig MODS - Mech & Digi Batteries, Drippers and Tanks on the market.. MOST are much of a muchness, but some oose (or ouse as we'd say in Sheffield!) Claaass!. Continue reading



    MODS - The kind that wear Parkas & ride Lambrettas? errr..NO!!!...MOD is the 'Today' word for A Hardcore, High-Watt-Output E Cig! Today in 2015, MOD means Modified E-Cigarette. THINK.. Pipes and Cigars as a tobacco smoker - Yep you got it!
    Battery MODS come in the form of Mechanical - with no electronic circuitry and Digital - with electronic circuitry and LED displays. Continue reading



    E Cigs the truth about them differs depending where you look for the information. MyCiggy have complied the benefits of them below, oh.. and a few facts too! As regular cigarette smokers, switching traditional brands and considering the alternatives can be a traumatic experience. Just moving into unfamiliar territory is a cause of concern for most individuals mainly due to their lack of understanding. We find that reassurance from knowledgeable sources regarding the benefits of switching manages to quell the majority of their concerns. Continue reading



    E Cigarettes The Facts: The first E Cigarettes arrived on shelves as far back as 2007, but they were pricey and didn't quite function as they were supposed to. It's only in the last couple of years that E Cigarettes have really taken off - their success isn't a coincidence, as today's E Cigarettes really work. Continue reading
