    Proper Tips for Vaping Outside During the Winter

    If you're new to vaping, you probably aren't familiar with the struggle vapers face during the winter months. In addition to having to brave the cold every so often to enjoy your vape, the drop in temperature also complicates the mechanics of your device. Below are some helpful tips for vaping this winter.

    Winter Vaping Outdoors Tip #1: Keep Your E-Liquid at Room Temperature
    While stepping outside for a quick vape won't ruin your e-juice, prolonged exposure to the cold could cause the liquid to thicken. Avoid this by limiting the device's time in the cold or by keeping it warm in your hand. Otherwise you run the risk of not only thickening your liquid, but also damaging your coil.

    Winter Vaping Outdoors Tip #2: Protect Your Equipment from Moisture
    Remember that your vape is an electronic device and that, like all electronics, it doesn't mix well with moisture. By simply moving from the warm interior of your home to the freezing cold outside, condensation can form on the most sensitive parts of your vape. Take the necessary precautions by packing it in a protective carrying case to keep the moisture away.

    Winter Vaping Outdoors Tip #3: Limit Your Devices Exposure to Freezing Temperatures
    In addition to damaging your hardware, freezing temperatures can also do a number on your device's battery life. When batteries are exposed to the cold, it can cause lithium inside to create plating over the electrodes, thereby causing your device's battery to overheat or charge at a slower rate. If you absolutely must vape outside in the cold this winter, allow your device to acclimate to the warmth of your home before charging it.

    Final Winter Vaping Outdoors Tip: Avoid the Metal Drip Tip
    If you're a fan of metal tips, you may want to consider a nice plastic tip this winter. It could spare you from a rather painful realization. When freezing metal comes in contact with something warm and wet, it will very likely stick to it. The same principle applies when your mouth touches a metal tip of a vape. If you're not into plastic drip tips, you can always spring for one of the wooden or glass variety.

    Of course, you could always choose to vape inside your home to avoid exposing your device (and yourself) to the bitter cold.

  • What Makes A Cheap Vaping Coil Well...Cheap?

    What Makes A Cheap Vaping Coil Well...Cheap

    Vaping, atomizing, and electronic cigarettes are a relatively new yet revolutionary concept in self-medication practice. The benefits to vaping and using these products are expertly verified and quite varied as well. Within these various tools of the trade however lie crucial components, necessary to the act of mechanical vaping – our most beloved activity.

    Importance of the Coil

    Perhaps the most important of all of these components is the coil. This central part of the vaping mechanism is single-handedly responsible for the device's changeover of liquid to gas, and the subsequent presence of a usable vapor. This is true regardless of the coil class - MOD coils, portable vaporizer coils, or e-cig coils.

    Because of their crucial role to the entirety of the vaping experience, coils have thus become a matter of elevated interest. Particularly, there has been much more curiosity as to how these coils differ at different quality levels as well as how they function in the first place. To make it all easier to understand, let's break it down to the basics. The following may come as a bit of a science lesson to some, but we'll keep it brief, explaining the function of the coil as well as providing some basic insights into electricity itself.

    How It Works

    First, some basics about electricity will really help one to understand their coil and its quality. Electricity flows very well through particular metals. In other metals however, it struggles to flow as well and thus encounters what is referred to as “resistance”. Resistance can be terrible in some applications. Here though, the concept of resistance is actually necessary.

    This is where the coil comes in. The coil acts as this aforementioned, metallic path of travel for the electricity generated by the device's battery. The electricity naturally wants to flow across the body of this part whenever the battery sends power to it. However, due to its finely crafted, intentionally resistant composition, the electricity must struggle to run through it.

    The result here is a controlled and focused heat point – a super-heated and very focused point on the coil in which this reaction takes place. Subsequently, the vaporizer's liquid solution is pulled across this finely focused heat source. This then creates the inhalable vapor ultimately sought.

    The Effect of Coil Quality

    As in all manufactured wares, costs are a big governor over quality in product when it comes to vaping coils. Regardless of the type of vaporizing mechanism, the core innerworkings of the coil are much the same. Variations in quality however change everything.

    How exactly does quality differ between coils? In most cases, cost-control dictates the type of metals and casting processes used in the creation of a coil. Overall quality in design is also touched by the consideration.

    In a low quality coil, the company has likely saved money on the mass production of its coil via the use of cheaper metals, manufacturing processes, and designs. The result is a coil that does not employ the optimal metal compositions or design for the optimal electrical resistance and resulting vaporization. Perhaps then the coil dies quicker because the metal couldn't withstand the constant and demanding electron travels across it. Maybe the coil only works intermittently, a sign of troubled travel of electricity through the cheaply-made design. Regardless of the symptom, coil quality greatly dictates effective and reliable vaporization in addition to actual occurrences of bad symptoms.

    These are the basics of the concept of the coil as well as the effects of quality on these crucial parts. Cheap coils will typically produce equivalent results while quality ones will do the same. To the benefit of the patron though, the wide variety in available choices here is always a plus.

  • Key Differences Between Internal and External Battery MODs

    Key Differences Between Internal and External Battery MODs

    MODs have become all the rage and are used by millions of vapers as the next level in the world of vaping. These devices are available in different brands and they use different types of batteries. A MOD is the modification of the device that allows increased or decreased vapor production, battery life, and voltage usage. The main drive of battery operated MODs are to provide heat to the liquid solution, which comprises of vegetable & propylene glycol and nicotine. These devices are offered with diverse battery types and functions.

    Types of Internal and External Batteries

    The primary differences between internal and external batteries are internal batteries are built into devices and external batteries are removable. Internal battery type, lithium polymer, also know also known as LiPo is permanently installed in a MOD and isn’t removable. The device must be thrown away when its natural life usage has expired. To recharge the battery, the vaper is advised to use a computer’s USB port that provides additional safety features compared to a wall socket.

    External battery MODs are replaceable and available in Lithium IMR or Lithium Manganese (Li-Mn), IMR/Hybrid, and ICR Lithium Ion (Li-Ion). Lithium IMR is considered the safest battery used for vaping and has higher tolerance to heat build-up. IMR/Hybrid batteries are recommended to modders if they want maximum load current and increased battery time. Most of the batteries have high amps and continual discharge rate. ICR Li-Ion is a protected battery and outdated for use in some devices.

    Safety Precautions of Internal and External Batteries

    Internal and External batteries are safe when used properly and efficiently. The batteries can overheat if its charged using faulty chargers and USB cords. No battery lasts a lifetime and must be replaced if damaged, and when its life usage ends. Internal batteries must be handled carefully to avoid bodily injuries or damages to devices. External batteries are more economical, but involves much awareness for battery safety. When it’s time to replace batteries, use only quality batteries and charge properly.

    Modders can protect themselves by observing the temperature of their device. If the vapor is hot and overheated, don’t use, and replace the battery, charger, or cord that’s causing excessive heating. The safest vapor devices and chargers are the types that automatically shuts off when fully charged. All MODs come with a manufacturer manual with instructions about how to use them as well as safety precautions.

    Of all the internal and external battery MODs, the external Lithium IMR battery is considered the safest on the national market. Its chemistry is unlike the other battery types because it doesn’t require built-in protective circuit.

  • Science Of Vaping And The Feelings Involved

    Science Of Vaping And The Feelings Involved

    Vaping for a lot of people tends to be a very nice and relaxing experience. Most turn to vaping to quit smoking cigarettes gradually, while others are in it just for the taste and experience most vaping products provide us. There are several different vaping devices people use to fuel their wants in an electronically used cigarette; e-cigarette, portable vaporizer, and MODs. All these vaping devices bring different unique experiences to the table.

    E-cigarette's are usually the easiest device to start with if you are interested in vaping, especially if you have been a smoker before or still are currently. These devices mock a cigarette in look and sometimes how they drag. Quick explanation on drag, when the term is used it is meant to define how smoke or vape pulls out of the device, whether it be a smooth pull, rougher pull, or harder. E-cigarettes mostly have a rougher pull, that tries to simulate a normal cigarette would feel if you were smoking one.

    These devices are obviously heavier than a cigarette, most rechargeable, and come in so many different flavors. For example, strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, and various kinds of blends. When vaping from these devices, depending on the brand, you will get a very similar experience from smoking a cigarette. Some of these products even let you suck in the vape, or you press the button and you draw from that instead, depending on what you prefer when smoking. They've a slightly rougher pull, they're small, fit easier in your hand, and most just have that right look into tricking you into thinking you are smoking the real thing. These devices do not allow you to change out your e-liquid, so what you buy is usually what you get when it comes to flavors. Important to mention as well while some are rechargeable they do not last very long, and a lot are just one time uses (as in, no recharge) and disposable afterwards.

    Next we have the portable vaporizer and MODs, which are usually bigger versions of a e-cigarette. These are great to explore if you have been using a e-cigarette for a while and would like to further your hobby or get a better experience out of these vapes. You can start out simply with a ego battery vaporizer. The ego battery vaporizer is a style, not a brand. They are a quite a bit wider and longer then a normal e-cigarette (ranging from a little sausage to normal sized hot dog). These are also nice because they are battery rechargeable (through USB, car port, and wall port).

    With these devices you can opt to get variable voltage (or VV), in short it allows you to customize how hot your e-liquid can get and it's very consistent when switching around between different atomizers and ohms. Though having VV in your device does make the battery drain a lot faster, and they usually run larger than other devices. These are very nice to have around as they are inexpensive most of the time and they always seem to have a smoother drag when vaping from them. The e-liquid for these devices are usually expanded massively for more flavor choices.

    MOD's are highly more complicated of devices and only truly recommended for those who are experienced with them or have done their research. Mechanical MOD's are nice because they don't have complex circuitry that can be damaged by liquids. The other bonus is that you can switch out your batteries. Digital MOD's are easier to use and way more customization options. These both allow you to really customize your vaping experience; you can pull smoother or rougher from these. Want more smoke? You can easily have it! These devices use the same e-liquid as an ego battery vaporizers, so still plenty of amazing choices.

    Different vaping devices can really be an enjoyable experience; whether you are just a beginner, or someone with experience in the field. Don't be afraid to explore around, learn more about the process, products, and vape with joy!

  • Putting an E-Cigarette Back Together Again

    Electronic Cigarette Retailers Face Legislative Setback

    Are you new to the e-cigarette game? Did you take apart your e-cigarette to clean it, and now you can’t put it together again? Or maybe you accidentally dropped the device and now you’re desperately trying to re-attach it? If you need an easy-to-follow guide then look no further, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know to get you vaping ASAP.

    The first thing to know is that an e-cigarette consists of four parts. There’s the cartridge (sometimes called a tank), the atomizer, the battery, and the tip. There’s a coil inside the cartridge, along with liquid and a wick. The atomizer comes attached to the cartridge. To use the e-cigarette, you suck on the tip, which activates the atomizer through sensors in the battery system. The atomizer heats the liquid through the coil, creating vapor. It’s as simple as that.

    Now, if the e-cigarette breaks or splits apart, just remember, “TABAC,” which stands for: Tip and Battery, Atomizer, Cartridge. That’s the order the e-cigarette goes in. Make sure the atomizer is screw tightly onto the cartridge, as the last thing you want is leaking fluid.

    If the e-cigarette doesn’t work, here’s a few helpful hints for putting it back together. It’s not rocket science but there is an art to it, so pay attention and you’ll be vaping in no time.

    If the battery tip blinks when you’ve only vaped for a few seconds, it means the battery is almost dead. Re-charge the battery.

    Make sure there’s no debris lingering between the atomizer and the battery. Lingering debris can prevent the e-cigarette from producing vapor.

    The atomizer’s top ring can sometimes work itself off. Make sure it’s snapped on.

    If you’re installing a new coil, make sure the wick has enough liquid by priming it first. This reduces the possibility that your wick will burn or that the coil will get damaged. To prime, put four or five drops of the liquid into the coil’s head. Next, put the coil’s head into the tank’s base. Then, fill the tank. Wait five or ten minutes before using.

    If your e-cigarette uses a clearomizer instead of an atomizer, turn it counter-clockwise until you hear a click to attach it to the tank. Then, turn it clockwise until it’s completely hooked in.

    Last is perhaps the e-cigarette’s most important aspect: the lock-out feature. The last thing anyone wants is to unknowingly turn on the e-cigarette when it’s resting in your pocket. So, once everything’s screwed in, quickly click the device’s button five times. That locks it so the battery can’t activate. To turn the device on again, simply click the button five times again. Voila!

    Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned pro, follow these steps, and you should have no problem putting your e-cigarette back together.

  • 3 Key Tips for Extending Your E-Cigarette's Lifespan

    3 Key Tips for Extending Your E-Cigarettes Lifespan

    E-cigarette parts are, ultimately, consumable and will require replacement at some point or another. Pre-filled cartridges and cartomizers are relatively cheap to replace, but a quality battery tends to cost more out of pocket. This makes it important to extend your battery’s lifespan as much as possible in order to get the most for your money.

    Here are just a few of the many things you can do to keep your e-cigarette battery working at its peak for as long as possible:

    Tip #1: Frequent Use
    Like phones, tablets, laptops, and most other rechargeable electronics, e-cigarettes are made for frequent, daily use. The same way frequent exercise keeps your muscles strong, regularly using your e-cigarette will help to keep it’s battery at peak performance. Lithium-ion batteries thrive on daily use, and using them regularly will help to keep their overall performance up and extend the life of the battery.

    Tip #2: Don’t Fully Drain Your Battery
    It used to be that the best thing to do for rechargeable batteries was to fully charge them, fully drain them, and repeat. These days, that’s the worst thing you can do. It’s easier to speed up a slowly moving train than it is to get a stopped train moving and e-cigarette batteries operate on a similar principle. A fully drained battery will be harder to charge than a partially drained one, forcing the battery to work harder just to get a charge. This'll ultimately lower the number of charge cycles the battery can complete and lead to a shorter lifespan and more frequent battery replacements.

    Tip #3: Always Disconnect Cartridges and Cartomizers
    Even when not in use, cartridges and cartomizers can slowly drain the power from a charged battery. This slow drain means there’s less power available when you want to use your e-cigarette, meaning you’ll have to recharge it sooner. Since most battery manufacturers only guarantee about 300 charge cycles, it’s important to put as much time between recharges as possible and get as much actual usage as possible from each full charge. Ensuring that your battery's disconnected is the easiest way to get the most use from each individual charge cycle and expand the amount of time you have before having to replace you e-cig battery.

    The battery is an important part of your e-cigarette, and extending the life of it as much as possible is key to keeping your replacement costs down, leaving more money in your pocket for that e-liquid or cartridge you’ve been wanting to try. Some of the easiest things you can do for your e-cigarette battery are to use it frequently, avoid fully draining it, and always disconnect it from it’s cartridges or cartomizers. Even if you can’t get more then 300 charge cycles from your battery, following these tips will help to ensure that you get the most out of every charge.
