Got to add my new electric tile cutter to the list - a steal at £32. Fantastic value item which saves so much time, reduces breakages to zero and allows even the tiniest slivers to be shaved off tiles. 3.5 sq m completed and not had one breakage so far .

My Box mod e-cigs. A DNA 250 with a TFv8 tank for home use and a SMOK Marshall with a TFV8 gold edition tank for pocket use. Recommend box mods and sub ohm vaping to anyone that seriously wants to quit smoking cigarettes. I was on and off quitting and have never felt the need since moving to sub ohm just over a year ago.

What's 'on and off quitting' ?

Re: Your favourite 'gadgets' - NOT phones :)

Stopping smoking and then starting again for no real reason at all, then to basically claim I'd quit when I was really smoking the odd ten every other month.

I stopped cold turkey and because I'm an idiot I just started again out of the blue when offered a cigarette. I then tried e-cigs 5 years ago, starting with the pen mods (batteries) and the 510 thread CE4-5 and the odd protank with standard 50/50 liquid. Problem was I was still buying the odd 10 cigs every other month, so essentially on and off quitting. Sometimes id go for ages and then buy 10 and smoke them. Silly stuff really. It took me a while to grt into box mods then sub ohm. I did it anyway and moved to 80/20 juice with it. Blew me away, couldn't imagine going back to a non sub ohm tank or a pen mod. Tried a cigarette when offered one last year just for that nostalgic feel I guess and it just did nothing me for, no hit and it absolutely stunk.

So rather than being on and off and not truly being away from cigarettes at the start. I'm completely rid of them and have absolutely no desire to purchase or even smoke the odd free one. Not sure if I'll ever kick the e-cigs though. It doesnt bother me too much. Just the gadget that put a stop to my cigarettes completely. Had little willpower and an arrogant approach to my health with no restraint when offered a cigarette either. Better to be honest.

As previous post id recommend the box mods with sub ohm variable voltage over the starter kits now of people want to really get away from smoking tobacco. I'm still smoking tolerant though, people will do what they want and it's no business of mine, it doesn't bother me. Having people smoke away in front of me reminds me I've beaten something thats been a part of my daily life since 16.

I have an Alien 220w and use either my TFV8 or my Troll v2 rda. All three are great but I do love my rda as the flavour is so great on it. Currently using dual Clapton at 0.26ohm at 80w.

Where do you start with RDA tanks and dripping? That tank you've posted is a pretty fair price. Liquid recommendations are probably needed too. Get a decent tasted from 80/20 sub ohm so if there's a better flavour hit to be had then I can imagine it's pretty great.

Re: Your favourite 'gadgets' - NOT phones :)

Add my coffee machine to the list do not know how we would manage without it now, only gripe the pods can work out quite expensive but totally worth it. The pods I like best is peach tea, hot chocolate and skinny macchiato.

Re: Your favourite 'gadgets' - NOT phones :)

I wouldn't be without Hue lights now. In my living room I have 2 blooms lights, one behind the TV and in a corner (both coloured), 2 lamps with living white & colour bulbs, 2 ceiling white ambiance bulbs. An Ambiance bulb in the bedroom and in the hallway. All can be controlled via iPads, iphone, Android phone, wall switch, Harmony remote and PC.

They are also voice controlled with the Amazon dot. All the living room lights are labelled as 'All' as a collective, so I just ask Alexa to turn all lights on or off or turn all lights to 20% and it does it. Or I can ask Alexa to control any single light only.

The bedroom light gradually comes on before the alarm goes off and increases brightness over a set period, then will turn off automatically at a set time. They can all be controlled over the internet via phone when you're outside too.

If I ask Alexa to harmony cinema, the lights in the living room corners will change to a soft red, the light behind the TV will go to a nice blue colour. The light behind my monitor till turn off. The TV will turn onto the correct HDMI channel etc etc etc.

It can take a bit of setting up but when it's done then everything is really very straight forward and not at all complicated to use.

Solar PIR LED spotlights for the garden. At last lamps that really light the place up and look like they'll survive UK weather.
