You may have started vaping a few months ago and are feeling pretty comfortable with this new adventure. You might also be wondering if there is more to vaping than what you have experienced. Your local vape store can help you explore the vaping world in ways you may not have thought.

Many people start out with a pen or stick vape device of some kind. It is simple to use and gives you a good vape experience. Since it is simple, you don’t get much control  over how the vape works.  You can choose vape flavors, strengths, VG levels and so forth at your local vape store, but there are things you can do to take vaping to another level.  You can get as complicated as you like, and the more complex you get the more control you have.  A pen is basic, but it takes a one size fits all approach. With vaping you can tailor your device to make it fit your tastes. Visit Vapor Smoke Shop to learn more, and get advice on taking your vape to another level. Here are five ways to enhance your vaping.

Box Mod

It all starts with a box mod, which its what separates professionals from amateurs.  The mod is the heart of your high-level vaping device, and everything else is built on that foundation. There are a lot of sizes and shapes to choose from, and there are different pricing levels. Vapor Smoke Shop can help you find one that fits your tastes and your budget. Since there are so many choices here, it makes sense to start with your local vape store, and get their advice.

Pod Systems

Do you prefer mouth to lung hits like a cigarette? Try a pod system like a Suorin Drop. It has an empty pod in which you can fill up your salt nicotine vape juice. It takes a Suorin Drop pod and can be used for 2-3 refills. Also, try a Phix or Eonsmoke device. They come prefilled with a Phix pod or Eon pods with many flavors to choose from. Once the pod is finished you simply throw it away.

However, if you prefer a more direct lung hits, where you inhale a big deep breath and exhale a huge cloud of vapor then try a Smok tank like the TFV12 or the Baby v2. These tanks work well with a mod that can take one or two external batteries. These batteries are rechargeable in a Nitecore or Efest charger. Newer battery styles like the 18650 batteries are the 20700 and 21700. They give more power and longer battery life to the daily vaper. Some Smok and Ijoy products come with and require these new batteries.

Sub-Ohm Tank

A sub-ohm tank is the next step to reaching vaping paradise. This type of tank allows you to have much bigger clouds, and increases the level of flavor you get in the vapor. You may be surprised to find out just how good your vape juice can taste. The Sub-Ohm tank is a bigger tank, so you can fill it up once and go all day. These tanks also give you even finer control over the air flow, which is something you can adjust to your preference. The newer coils/tanks use a mesh coil. A mesh coil is a mesh wire which holds the cotton in place, giving you zero interference with the coils meaning more flavor! One of the best tanks in the market right now is the Horizontech Falcon. It uses not only a mesh wire but it also has wood pulp in the cotton allowing more flavor to be stored into the cotton.


Coils are easy for pens, but as you go up they get more complicated. You an also make your own coils, choosing cotton on your own, and packing them the way you like.  The coils affect your vape’s taste, and you can fine tune that to an amazing level if you make your own. Your local vape store, Vapor Smoke Shop, can give you lots of information about coils. Add cotton bacon or Japanese cotton. we also have prewicked cotton ready to slide into the coils for someone who is a beginner. Some newer sub-ohm tanks use Japanese cotton and some use cotton imported from Egypt like the Geekvape Alpha tank.


There are thousands of flavors out there, and you can mix and match those in endless configurations. Here is where you can experiment with the help of the folks at Vapor Smoke Shop. Your local vape store is the best source for your vaping needs, especially if you want to upgrade.
