  • Proper Tips for Vaping Outside During the Winter

    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.

  • Increasing Your RDA Flavor and Throat Hit

    Increasing Your RDA Flavor and Throat Hit

    If you're looking for more flavor and a better throat hit from your RDA, there are a few things you can do. The size of your coil, type of material used for your wick, the distance your coil is from your airflow, the amount of airflow, and the VG/PG ratio of your e-liquid all affect the taste and feel of your hit.

    The most important factor in increasing flavor is the surface area of the coil. A larger surface area means you'll be burning more juice and flavoring. The type of wire used is also a factor. Using twisted or clapton coils allows juice to fill the nooks and bring out more flavor. How the coil is wicked is another factor. You can't have too tight of a coil or the juice won't be able to travel up to the coil fast enough and will result in more dry hits. If the coil is too loose, you'll end up with spots that are hotter on your coil and have dry hits as well. Airflow is another factor in flavor. Basically the less airflow there is, the more flavor you get. A fully open or very airy RDA will result in less flavor. An RDA with the airflow openings right next to the coils will help with giving more flavor due to the air being able to flow around the whole coil.

    The key element to getting a good throat hit is heat. Essentially, the hotter the coil, the better the throat hit. If you're using a mechanical mod the best way to get hotter coils is to build a lower ohm coil (be careful). Look for a battery from a brand you trust that has an amp limit of at least 30 With an electric mod you want to increase the wattage/voltage. For the wick, you want to use cotton or rayon as they burn hotter than silica. As for the coils, thinner wire and shorter coils will be hotter at the expense of cloud volume.

    One of the tricky aspects is coil placement. If you want a good throat hit you need to have the coil further away from the airflow intake, but that may come at the cost of flavor. You're going to have to do a little experimenting to find the right distance for the right balance of flavor to throat hit. The amount of PG in the e-juice will have an effect on throat feel as well. The higher the PG, the more feel it'll have.

    There is no one answer to the perfect build. The type of juice you use, the RDA you're using, and personal preference are going to determine how you build your coil. Through experimentation and adjustments, you'll be able to find the right balance for you.

  • Coil Connection Problems - They Happen But Can Be Fixed

    Coil Connection Problems - They Happen But Can Be Fixed

    A good coil is needed to ensure that the e-liquid in the vaping device  able to turn into the vapor that you can inhale. However, once and a while, problems do arise with the coil. But there are ways in which these coil connection problems can be fixed, no matter how quickly a fix is needed to ensure that you're able to get your coil back up and working again. A good lasting fix will take care of any coil problems that you have.

    With all that said, here are some possible solutions to a coil connection problem so that you're able to begin vaping again:

    The Coil is Bad
    If the coil itself is bad, then the coil won't be able to heat up the liquid at all. Some coils come from the manufacturer in a defective state to begin with. These manufacturing issues happen more often than most realize, as a bad batch of coils can easily slip through the quality control processes of the manufacturer. A bad coil can only be replaced by a new coil as they can't be repaired. Once it has been replaced, you'll be able to vape again with a new coil that's able to work better for your vaping needs.

    Dirty Connectors
    Another possibility is that there's a dirty connector at the end of the coil. Vape solution collects at the end of the coil, which means that gunk builds up from the solution. The fix to this is to take the cotton out in a gentle way, run the coil without any solution in it, rinse the coil off, gently dry the coil off, and replace the cotton with a new piece. A brand new piece of cotton will make the coil as good as new so that you can keep vaping without any holdups.

    Check the Bottom Pin
    In order for the coil to be able to connect to the battery, the bottom pin has to be in place firmly. Ideally, the bottom pin has to be centered over the battery to ensure that the battery is able to make the solid connection between the coil and the battery. Check to make sure that the coil's firmly seated at the bottom pin in order for a connection to be there. This is also something which should be checked for gunk and debris that needs to be cleaned off.

    Cases Where The Solution Has a Burnt Taste
    If the vapor solution has a burnt taste to it, then this means the coil is burning the cotton. The first thing to consider is to make sure that there's enough liquid going to the cotton for the coil to heat up. Once the amount of solution has been verified to be sufficient, the next thing to do is to consider replacing the coil. If all else fails, a liquid which is too thick may be unable to travel to the base of the coil.

    Coil connection problems can make the vaping experience awful and decrease the life of the device. That's why we stress that you need to keep your coils clean and that everything's assembled properly to have the best vaping experience possible. Mechanical falts are probably the issue when all cleaning attempts fail, but make sure your coils are seated properly in the first place.

  • RDAs are a DIY Vaper's Dream Come True

    RDAs are a DIY Vapers Dream Come True

    Dripping is a term used for a way vape without using chambers but rather placing drops of e-liquid right on the coils often atomizer. It's popular because of the fact that it gives off a bolder and richer flavor than traditional methods and because it's easier to switch from one flavor of e-juice to another this way. In order to do this properly, bridgeless atomizers are needed. Though e-liquid can be dropped directly onto the bridge, the hit is  better when the liquid goes directly onto the coils. And thus, the different methods for getting the bridge out of the way are where RDAs come in to play.

    RDAs stands for rebuildable dripping atomizers which are a DIY alternative to buying atomizers that come prefixed and ready to drip. Traditionally, in order to get the effect of dripping, vapers would have to take apart their atomizers and remove the bridge piece in order to expose the coils so e-liquid could be placed directly onto them. When the popularity of dripping rose, atomizers without bridges became available and so did RDAs. RDAs are a popular choice that gives vapers the option to create their own bridgeless atomizers at a lower cost than those that come pre-made that way. RDAs allow users to replace wicks and coils themselves.

    Now, there's an art to dripping that involves using the correct amount of e-liquid to achieve maximum drags without losing flavor or having the liquid come dripping out of the atomizer. It's important to consider that when buying a RDA, care needs to be taken to build the coils and wicks correctly or  the e-juice could lose flavor. It's important to do research and choose the right rebuildable atomizer or risk wasting e-liquid and money on an apparatus that isn't effective.

    When looking for which RDA to buy, it's important to consider several key factors such as the number of posts. The more posts in the RDA, the more coil setups which means more vapor. Next is airflow control. The amount of controlled airflow  in the device is directly related to vapor and flavor; more airflow means more vapor, less airflow means better flavor. The decks on RDAs are important factors as well because they determine how much of a wick and how much liquid the device can hold.

  • 3 Tips To Avoid Damaging Your Wicks

    3 Tips To Avoid Damaging Your Wicks

    It can be annoying when you’re in the middle of an awesome vaping session and suddenly everything comes to a grinding halt. You’re not able to vape. It’s important to take care of your wicks because it greatly affects the quality of your vaping. Continuing to use a damaged wick will leave you with a burnt taste in your mouth. It’s less than enjoyable, so it’s in your best interest to learn how to take care of your wick so you can have thick, flavorful vape every time. Wigth that said, here are a few quick tips that you can start doing today to enjoy your vaping sessions more.

    Smaller Puffs
    Taking deep puffs and waiting in between puffs for long periods can cause the burnt taste to come about. To avoid this, take smaller puffs which ensure that the wick is thoroughly coated in e-liquid. When you wait long periods of time before you hit your vape again, the e-liquid either drips back into the tank or evaporates. Simply take a few small hits before you turn the battery on and take a hit. This helps ensure that the wick is saturated and that’s what you want.

    How VG and PG Affect Your Wick
    Your wick is going to be affected differently depending upon whether you use vegetable glycerin (VG) or propylene glycol (PG). VG is thicker and typically used for sweeter e-liquids. The viscosity of this type of e-liquid can lead to buildup on your wick from the sugars. The sugar can actually burn and leads to a burnt taste. The sweeter your e-liquid is, the more likely it will build up on your wick. If you enjoy thick, dark, sweet e-liquids there is no need to change. Just keep in mind how your favorite flavor affects the wick. You may find yourself changing out old wicks for new ones more frequently because of the type of e-liquid.

    Proper Wick Size
    You can buy your wicks from a vape store or simply create them yourself. You can likely find material for you wick within your home. You can use silica wick, organic cotton balls, or Cellucotton rayon balls. Make sure that you don’t insert too much wick into the chamber. The wick is going to expand once it is saturated in the e-liquid. Too much expansion can lead to burning and thus a burnt taste.

    In addition to these tips, you also want to do basic maintenance. Clean your atomizer coils or buy new atomizer coils if you’re experiencing an ongoing burnt taste. Don’t overfill your tank with e-liquid, be mindful of how much you’re using. Also, pay attention to how long you’re taking a drag. In the event that you damage the atomizer tank and there’s a crack in it, you may just need to replace the tank. Keep in mind that you could be doing everything right, but if you’re vaping too high on the voltage, this causes the burnt taste again. As long as you keep your vape pen clean inside and out, it'll continue to provide you with hours upon hours of enjoyment.

  • Don't Let Your MOD Overheat During The Summer

    Dont Let Your MOD Overheat During The Summer

    As a vaper, you should always use your particular unit according to the manual, which shows you how to operate your MOD safely and efficiently. I’d like to touch on some how’s and why’s of overheating during the summer. Also, within this article, there will be quick tips and advice about MODs and their batteries. When it comes to vaping, there are things to know which are very critical and valuable when operating your private unit.

    Exercising caution while using your MOD is a must when you are using it both indoors and outdoors. And now that summer is here, of course, we want to take our mods along with us to get-togethers and barbecues (and everywhere else)! Usually, no matter where you’re from summer means hot, hot, hot! Here are a few tips and how to keep your MOD safe from overheating.e

    1. Try not to press your firing button for extended periods of time while taking a hit (or drag) because doing so will cause your mod to get hot to the touch and your battery could overheat and potentially erupt.

    2. Always remain conscious of your temperature and voltage usage by checking your current settings and also when you’re adjusting them. Doing this lengthens the life of your battery.

    3. Avoid overcharging your battery by charging it during the day when you know you can check on it every so often. Most MODs have a safety feature, which allows it to stop charging after it has reached its limits, but there's no guarantee so to be safe, no overnight charging if you can refrain from doing so.

    4. Do your best to keep your mod out of direct sunlight or extreme heat conditions for extended periods of time. I know this may seem like an obvious tip, but you’d be surprised by how many people forget or even think about their mods exposed to direct sunlight. Nobody wants to run back to their towel at the beach, only to find e-liquid and battery acid all over their belongings, leaving them with a mess and destroyed mod!

    5. My final tip is to be sure that you always lock your MOD to avoid accidentally sitting on the firing button without knowing it and overheating your mod to the maximum. Neglecting to lock your MOD causes a potential fire hazard or explosion in your pocket or where ever else you keep your mod.

    Hopefully, you’ve found these tips helpful and useful, if not, at least informational. After buying your MOD, please read the manual that comes along with it to obtain the information you may need.

  • 4 Clearomizer Problems You Can Fix

    4 Clearomizer Problems You Can Fix

    Each day you probably wake up, eat breakfast, and head to your morning vape session. Usually everything goes smoothly, and your session is relaxing as always. But every once in a while, you’ll notice something is a little off. Maybe there isn’t as much vapor as usual, or maybe there is a little bit of burnt taste at the tail end of the vapor. Possibly you feel like you’re just not able to pull as hard as usual, or maybe your vape just won’t even turn on. Do not fear - everyone has these problems, and each of these can be fixed regardless of your mechanical and tinkering skills.

    Here we’ll discuss exactly what do to fix four of the most common problems you may have with your clearomizer.

    Problem #1: Burnt Taste
    Getting a burnt taste from your device is probably one of the most common problems that most vapers face. Fortunately, it can be easily explained and troubleshooting solutions is simple. There are only two reasons that a clearomizer may produce burnt taste: dry wicking or clogging. Check how much e-liquid you've left in your vape - if it’s low, you may need to flip it around in order to re-saturate the wick. If you’re nearly out of e-juice, it’s time to refill the clearomizer, as trying to pull from a dry coil will give you that burnt taste. If you've been using your clearomizer for more than a week without cleaning it, then it’s time to do so. E-liquid sugars will build up on the heating coil, and constantly reheating these will produce burnt taste. Give the coil a good scrub or replace it with a new one and you should be good to go.

    Problem #2: Limited Airflow
    Restricted airflow can definitely hinder your vaping experience and can strain the vape’s parts as well, so fixing it quickly is imperative. What’s probably restricting airflow is some sort of obstruction either in the base of the clearomizer or in the coil. You can easily check the coil by shining a flashlight down the tube. If there's any obstruction, you'll notice it. The only parts that are supposed to be there are the coil and the cotton wick running through. Chances are that some extra cotton from the wick fell off, obstructing the pin that connects the coil to the rest of the vape. If there’s nothing there, check the base. Usually you can see inside the base, and will easily notice if something is there. Take out the obstructing object, switch in a new coil if you’re feeling the vibe, and you’re good to go.

    Problem #3: Not Enough Vapor Production
    Before we troubleshoot, let’s clear up one thing. We’re not talking about how your device isn’t producing the huge clouds you see in videos - we’re talking about it's not producing as much vapor as it has in the past. Plenty of people expect their devices to produce gigantic clouds right out of the box, but don’t realize how much tweaking the pros have put into making this happen. Regardless of that, if your device isn’t producing a normal amount of vapor there's certainly a problem. The first thing you should check is the battery. Chances are that the battery is low and needs a charge. However, if that’s not true, then move to the clearomizer. Two things may be afoot here. The first could simply be low e-liquid. Easily fix this by refilling and vaping away. The other problem could be that your clearomizer has aged to completion. The atomizer inside deteriorates over time, and it could be time to replace it with a new one.

    Final Problem: No Power
    Sometimes your device just won’t turn on. This could be a battery issue, so make sure the battery is on and charged properly. However, it could be a clearomizer issue. Maybe your clearomizer isn't compatible with the battery, or more likely the connection between the clearomizer and the battery is faulty. Check that they’re properly connected, or try the clearomizer with other batteries to ensure that it works.

    Thankfully, each of these problems can be easily fixed with a little bit of careful checking. Make sure everything is working smoothly so you can make your vape sessions as amazing as possible.

  • The True Feeling of Vapor

    vapor

    The true feeling of vapor is like inhaling flavored air. I heard that it was going to be a similar experience to smoking when I first started years ago, but I was pleasantly surprised that it was better. Vapor has provided a much better taste and a cleaner feeling inside my lungs as well. It is clear that the vapor is far less harmful to my health than tobacco and any media source that tells you differently is being dishonest. Vaping feels much smoother than cigarettes as its going down. It does allow you some of the same sensation, but it lacks the harshness of tobacco.

    However, if you've never vaped before the feel of the vape in your mouth is much thinner than tobacco smoke and of course it lacks the taste of tobacco which's a good thing. Long time smokers tend to not notice the way tobacco makes them smell because they have become desensitized to it. But once you start substituting vaping for smoking, the smell of tobacco smoke will become apparent and it will be something that you want to avoid. The darker juices tend to create a heavier cloud and the lighter juices feel gentler as they go down.

    When you inhale vapor, it will have a wet texture to it. At first, it may take some getting used to because of that texture of wetness that cigarette smoke lacks. It is a natural reaction to gag or cough because of this. Soon your body will adjust to the new sensations of the vapor and you will feel better because rather than inhaling many harmful chemicals, you are breathing in soothing vapor that satisfies your nicotine cravings and the feeling in your lungs is lighter and healthier.

    The experience can be enhanced or changed in a couple of ways. First of all, there are a wide variety of e-liquids available on the market today. In fact, you will be able to try new flavors and styles continually and never run out of options. Your own personal taste will determine which are best for you. Not only do they vary in taste but they also vary in the amount of nicotine in them. So it's possible to wean your nicotine consumption down to absolutely nothing in a pretty short amount of time.

    The second game changer in the vaping experience is the device you use to vape with. One of the early types was the mini e-cig, this is a discrete option. It's about the size of a pen but the battery doesn’t last all that long and it doesn’t have a powerful flow into your lungs. The second option is the mid-sized. This is probably the most popular and the one that I prefer. The most popular brands are eGo & EVOD. I like this because the size is about that of a cigar and it provides a consistent flow all the time. It is a good feeling to know what type of taste and experience you are going to have. Finding the perfect device that feels right in your hand will allow the right amount of cloud in your lungs. The true feeling of vapor will allow you to feel great.

  • E-Liquids and Cartridges: The Best Options For New Vapers

    Optionn

    For those who wish to quit smoking and make the transition to vaping, there are some options to consider when purchasing their first electronic cigarette or vape pen. There are two methods for nicotine administration in either device; the cartridge and e-liquid. There are marked differences between the two that would fit different personalities and budgets. Though both options are far cheaper than cigarettes, you still want to purchase the right one for your vaping needs. With that said, here's a quick breakdown of each to help any new vapers out there understand what their needs might be.

    Cartridges
    Cartridges for two piece vaping kits contain both the liquid and the atomizer. The cartridge and atomizer are single use, so they're disposed of after the liquid has run out. They're extremely simple to change out, which make them a great beginner model. There are usually more drags available in the cartridge and there's no chance of spilling the liquid. One can also purchase different concentrations of nicotine and different flavor cartridges here at Smoking Vapor. The average cartridge lasts about as long as a pack of cigarettes. (Companies usually make more available cartridge and battery options, but they do not span to different brands. Any brand of e-liquid is transferable to any pen, so mixing and matching is much more of a possibility.)

    E-Liquid
    E-liquid is a bit more versatile in terms of customization. A creative vaper can blend liquids to make new concentrations of nicotine and new flavors of liquid. The biggest perk of e-liquid is the expense. Liquids last a lot longer than disposable cartridge and the atomizer is re-usable so a vaper ends up saving significant amounts of money. The liquid method does require more work to refill, as it manually has to be dropped into the chamber through the cotton. Some people actually prefer the manual method, as it familiarizes them with their device in case they want to repair or modify it.

    Cartridges are recommended for most beginners simply because of the ease of transition. Because there's less work involved in reloading the device, beginners can get used to vaping and develop their personal taste and style. Then, if they're interested in saving more money in the long-run as well as having advanced customization options, they can move on to e-liquids. The ambitious spirit can transition straight to e-liquids, but everyone should try both methods just to make sure they're once again not wasting money and getting the most satisfying vape experience possible.
