    Maintenance Bill amount can be reversed or not?

    I am on my building's mgmt comm for the last couple of years and I got a couple of points to add: 1) Being on a Housing society's mgmt committee is probably one of the most thankless things out there - a liftman (if they still exist) gets way more heartfelt thanks At the very least, you would...

    Mesh Wifi systems

    Depends on if the walls and esp the ceilings are reinforced concrete The signal is not particularly good in the vertical plane, esp with RCC in the middle you may need a 3 device set if you need good speed on all floors Also, the Orbi is not designed to be ceiling mounted It is not...

    Mesh Wifi systems

    Actually that reminds me - I too initially had issues with the RBK50 Lil bit of fiddling around on telnet revealed that the devices for India are locked to a very low tx power (20dbm) on the 5ghz band (i think all newer devices conform to the Indian reg cap of 20dbm on the 5ghz band) Switching...

    Anyone here (or your wife, mom) using Instant Pot for Indian Cooking ?

    I use a crock-pot Had picked up one at a local Lakeland sale in Pune Does a great job with meats. Having said that, These are relatively high wattage devices when the heating coil comes on - you would be a lot better off picking one up in India or the UK rather than the US I have two of these...

    Which Vape Brand To Use??

    you can add a little vegetable glycerine and propylene glycol (VG and PG) to get the mix down to 25mg odd - it will reduce the flavours but will still get your liquid to a perfectly usable state Both VGand PG are readily available on many vaping sites Just get the proportions right using an...

    What is the coil resistance of the one on your kit? A higher resistance coil will reduce the throat hit

    Any good USB Power Delivery chargers available locally?

    Saw that but it's ridiculously overpriced @vivek.krishnan : That's a good idea..let me look em up Edit: That won't work either as I need both USB-C and lightning options at the other end and laptop chargers terminate on the tip

    Any good USB Power Delivery chargers available locally?

    Was under the incorrect assumption that type C PD (power delivery) chargers would be popular and commonly available by now. Tried running a quick search online but surprisingly didn't really find anything . Are there any reliable type-C PD chargers for quick charging available locally? Ideally...

    Which Vape Brand To Use??

    That's correct 35mg = 35mg of nicotine per ml which is approx 35mg per 1000mg of the liquid i.e. 3.5% having said that, most e-liquids are around 70% vegetable glycerine which has a higher specific density than water so 35mg would mean a little less than 3.5%

    Which Vape Brand To Use??

    Yup.. That's The one... But check if pod replacements are available. I picked like 25 replacements on a recent trip so covered for 6 months If not, I've heard good things about the breeze 2 as well. As for liquids, try see if you can get 25mg as 50 gets a bit much on anything other than a juul...
