    Less than two weeks into my vaping journey my first and only starter kit has broken. It rolled off a surface and onto a tiled floor. Are there any reputable bricks and mortar stores in Brisbane that I could take it to for some advice? Alternatively, are there any online vendors that that have good prices and very speedy postage? Given that I'll invariably need to replace it, what starter kits are recommended? Unfortunately it's back to the rollies until I can sort this out. Buying two kits is definitely a must do after this experience.

    They seem to have a large selection?
    Took three days to mail me some VG over last weekend.

    Good luck & stock backups for your backups.

    I am not sure about B & Ms in Brissie - I think there is a smoke shop called Sams smokes and quite a few vapers say its ok as the vaping section is run by Vapers.
    Otherwise Victory Vape have good service and fast delivery and Wick & Wires in Melbourne are also rated well by Vapers.

    +1 for victory vape being quick. If you order during business hours, it often ships in half an hour

    I've also heard that Sam's is quite expensive, so worth looking online if you can I think.

    I think Twistie might be swimming to Slacks Creek?

    Thanks for your advice everyone. I've looked at your recommendations and as I've got the day off work I'm heading into Brissy this morning to check our Sam's Smokes. As I only need a tank (the battery's fine) I'll check out what fits and is on offer. Meanwhile I've an order ready to fire away with Victory Vapes and will go through the checkout once I've seen Sam's. Hopefully I'll be vaping again this morning or at the worst by Friday with an express post order through VV.

    Thanks Pippi. I'm off to Sam's this morning and have an order ready to submit with Victory Vape. Being keen to ensure I don't get caught out again I'm ordering the pipe you suggested.

    Thanks Dogman. Irrespective of the results of my B&M jaunt today I'll be ordering from VV this morning. I'm hoping that with Express Post that I'll get the order by Friday.

    Nope, just keeping the forum mods awake & making sure their tools are working still ;)

    @Twistie Take a look at my review of this tank, it has a new type of coil called EUC which seem to last & last, I tried the ceramic wick coil but another reviewer tested using the spare included cotton wick coil & said that it lasted him for 3+ weeks. One of the best things about this tank is I have not been able to make itleak a single drop when refilling or when left standing unused for two weeks(most tanks will leak a little like this over time due to changes in air pressure outside the tank) or during use, it is easy to use & vapes very well: http://www.vapercafeaustralia.com/threads/vaporesso-estoc-mega-tank-with-euc-coil-ceramic-wick.4127/
    It also comes in black or silver (SS) versions, since you are getting the pipe mod, I think that this will be a great companion to use with it, due to its refusal to leak. Pipe mods by nature have tanks laying on their side, which is different to tanks being used upright, again many tanks will not leak when used normally in an upright position but DO leak when used or left on their side, the Estoc Mega is unlikely to leak when used on its side.
