    Top 3 E-Juices To Vape This Winter From Smoking Vapor

    As a part of my annual Winter rituals, I like to sit and contemplate what I can do differently, in concurrence with this time of year. I make a concerted to practice this for every season, beginning with a peaceful and welcoming meditation. This includes activities, attires and yes, vaping decisions, as this too can be altered for awhile. Just for awhile.

    Hence, I offer up my top three vaping flavor decisions:

    Winter E-Juice Flavor #3: WASHINGTON'S FOSTER - CASH $ LINE

    I include Washington's because it's so rich and sweet. Yes, let's just put this one right out there to begin with! It's the sweet ones that intrigued us to vape in the first place? Right? Well, yeah. I like something sweet in my cartridge at the end of a productive and tiring day.

    Winter E-Juice Flavor #2: 30 ML JUNKYARD SCOTCH BY UNCLE JUNKS

    Junkyard is another sweet juice. The intricate mix will tantalize your palate and tease your taste buds, as it does mine. In fact, it makes me wish that I had a bigger and more powerful cartomizer, one that would smoke out a large colony of killer bees. Bananas, butterscotch and other essences. Oh my! This is another one that proves to be a real treat at the end of the day. I like to sit on the porch with my dogs and relax and unwind with it. I like to wave at strange passerby's too.

    Winter E-Juice Flavor #1: SV PREMIUM MENTHOL E LIQUID 10ML

    Finally, the menthol. I had to include a menthol. It's my stable, after all. I reach for the menthol before I sit on another flavor. It's the one that I choose to begin my day with. I like it for driving too. It's funny how we become so quickly accustomed to particular flavors during particular times of the day.

  • 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.








  • 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.

  • Newbie Vapers: How To Use A Single Cartridge When You Vape

    Newbie Vapers How To Use A Single Cartridge When You Vape

    If you've decided to switch to electronic cigarettes here at Smoking Vapor, you're welcome aboard. Scientists have collected a lot of evidence that shows that if everyone who smokes the regular cigarettes switched, there would be 5 million less smoking related deaths every year. The biggest problem that comes with the normal cigarettes is the combustion and not the nicotine. The burning brings about thousands of carcinogens and tar. When you switch to an e-cig, you eliminate the combustion, hence the assertion that switching is like quitting.

    What is a single cartridge e-cig?
    The basic e-cigarette relies on the cartridge. The cartridge is a compartment that contains the liquid nicotine that you vaporize and inhale. When the liquid in the cartridge is used up, you throw it away and get another one. The cartridges are sold in packs of 5, 10 and 15 and at times even more. The single cartridge e-cig is used; the process is simple because you do not need an atomizer. Every cartridge comes with its own atomizer. The important thing to note about the cartridge e-cigs is that when you buy a kit from one brand, all the cartridges that you buy and replace the original one with should be the same brand.

    How is the cartridge used?
    To use the cartridge, you simply attach it to the component in the e-cig. There are people that choose to take the cig for a dry run before they inhale anything from it. This removes any factory flotsam that could affect the user. Then, you load the tank. For the pre-filled cartridges you just attach it to the battery. You can dab some unmixed oil on the atomizer or the parts that surround the wick. The mixed oil is normally put in the tank. Then, there are those cigs that automatically hit up when you inhale while others have a push button.

    There are many benefits that come from the single cartridge cigs. To start with, they are easy to use. Learning to use the cartridges correctly will help you use one for a longer period of time.



    Whether you run a dripper or a tank, a regulated variable voltage/variable wattage device is a valuable addition to every vaper’s arsenal. These devices give users the ability to adjust the wattage in order to tailor the heat and vapor output of the unit to their preference. Additionally, regulated devices eliminate voltage drop which plagues mechanical units.

    The Chain Reaction is a 50 Watt 26650 regulated device made by Amigo Itsuwa which features a durable yet sleek design. The attractive styling boasts a durable carbon fiber battery tube cover which compliments the stainless steel components and protects the copper battery tube and red bronze contacts. The OLED display is easy to read, and the software is intuitive.

    The device operates in the manner that all experienced vapers have come to expect: utilizing a power button which doubles as an on/off switch and two buttons for wattage adjustment from 7 to 50 Watts. The buttons offer satisfying tactile feedback and are of durable proven design. Disassembly of the unit is achieved by first unscrewing the bottom cap and removing the battery. The carbon fiber covered copper tube can then be unscrewed from the rest of the device, although this would be unnecessary for any purpose other than deep cleaning of the unit.

    Although the device will fire as low as 0.3 Ohms, the sweet spot for this device is between 0.5 and 0.8 Ohms for RDA’s and will handle any sub Ohm tank currently on the market utilizing coils in the correct range. The Chain Reaction features an overload protection circuit and will also measure the resistance of the build placed on the sturdy non-adjustable 510 connection preventing any shorts or undue stress to the battery. The sensible range, combined with the 26650 battery, provides an all-day vape which will satisfy even the most habitual vaper’s.

    The 26650 powered regulated devices offer the experienced vaper a sensible go-to device which will meet the needs of these advanced users. In the hands of an experienced user, these devices are safe and reliable when compared to the outdated technology previously available. As always, battery safety should be of paramount concern to any ambassador of the vape community in order to project a positive image of our hobby.

    So just how well-performing is this sub-ohm tank?
    Well, the AMIGO RT SUB OHM Atomizer tank is said to be better than the Atlantis or the Arctic vape tank systems.
    How you might ask?
    Well, to start, it has a 0.5 OHM bottom vertical coil made of USA Kanthol Wire. The metal mesh around the organic cotton really throttles the liquid flow and disperses it more evenly to prevent spit back and gurgling.
    True power and airlfow are key because...
    This bad boy fires up to 80W with most premium liquids, but hits its sweet spot around 65W. The tanks come with adjustable airflow and an adjustable pin connector to ensure you get the right energy transfer and a solid connection regardless of the battery built-in hardware you're using on your MOD or vaporizer unit. The tank comes with a heat dissipating wide-mouth drip tip that is changeable on the 4.0 mL Glass Tank.

  • 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.
