Flavourarts wtf ?
Flavourarts
10ml of 18mg Nic = £3.50
The PG version is 10% water and VG version is 20% water
so it vapes faster cost less ?

they started off so well .. made out there your friends .. then when you need them they screw you over ...
sound familiar.. yeah it's what drug dealers do ..

so 72mg nic is £60 ltr theres roughly 400 18mg nic shots
so that's £1400 per ltr ... nice mark up

RE: Flavourarts wtf ?
Maybe you can buy from elsewhere...

If we ever get desperate, we can always be strong on PG and menthol (not for tobacco flavours, the menthol, I think).

Meanwhile, I still, have a few Pink Mule 100 ml/100 mg bottles and I'm tempted to buy at least one more. Then, we'll see.

Everybody buy it elsewhere. I'm sure in the end the market will self-regulate (unless people do buy and they can actually make a profit).

Maybe they're hoping that people buying their flavours will cough up to avoid paying postage twice? Not me, I have my stash of 72mgSmiling

RE: Flavourarts wtf ?
Maybe you know more about their business practices than I do, but I'm not seeing any rip off.

First off, I'm pretty sure that no one is being forced to buy the stuff.

Next up is the additional water that you complain about. I prefer pg and vg to be undiluted, but there's a very good reason for adding water (which costs money). Doing so means additional processing, which also costs.

There's also the fact that flavourart aren't a big supplier of nicotine and probably offer these shots to make life easy for customers who want the option of buying them with flavours. It's quite likely that due to small production volumes that they make very little on them.

If the above doesn't sit well with you, then buy elsewhere and give yourself a pat on the back for being so worldly wise as to know that other suppliers exist.

I'm sorry but if a small company like dripdrop can do it for £1.25 then a huge company like flavourart are taking the piss .. but this is just my honest opinion

RE: Flavourarts wtf ?
I know one thing for sure . If I was offered the choice of a free bottle of Darkstar, DripDrop or Flavourart , it'd be the Flavourart every time Big Grin

Flavourart blokey has been a valuable member of this forum since day 1 . He's always been a generous guy , both with his knowledge and his wares. He clearly isn't looking to rip anyone off or take the piss . Nic shots have been forced upon him by the marketplace . I m guessing he'd rather not be selling them .

I agree £3.50 isn't cheap for what it is though .

RE: Flavourarts wtf ?
Nothing against FA obviously.

All I'm saying is if a price doesn't look satisfying, look elsewhere.

The market *may* self-regulate.

Or... just go heavy on PG and menthol and get used to it (it's a possibility I'm not discarding).
