Finding the Best Vape Charger

It may seem like an extra expense, but buying a vape charger for your device is a good idea. Sure you can use a USB cord to plug your device into a wall or a computer, but vaping experts say this is not a good idea. Buying a separate charger could even save you money in the long run, and it will make your device perform better.  Vapor Smoke Shop is your local headquarters for chargers and all your vaping needs Why Should I Invest in a Vape Charger? The problem with many mods is that they need a certain amount of charge to operate at peak capacity. Giving your batteries too much of a charge can damage the batteries, and not getting enough charge affects the performance of your device. A common battery used is the 18650 Lithium-Ion, which produces a lot of power quickly. The downside is there is no protection or control over how much charge they get when you plug them into a wall. With a charger, you can be sure you are getting the correct amount of charge for your batteries. Another reason to get a charger is that these batteries can over-heat or leak when they get too hot. There have been instances of batteries exploding, but this is rare. The biggest advantage of the charger is that it is specifically designed to give you control over exactly how much charge your batteries get. That is important for vaping. Most devices use two batteries, and it is a good idea to “marry” them by always using them paired together. You may get a charger...

The Three Healthiest Vaporizers You Need Right Now

A lot of people are switching from smoking tobacco to vaping, or inhaling an e-cigarette with their favorite ejuice, dab pen or vaporizing their dry herbs, wax or concentrate into a device made specifically for that type of material. The jury is still out on whether vaporizers – which is not smoking – is actually safe, but there is growing evidence that it is certainly less harmful.  At Vapor Smoke Shop we want to help you find what exactly are you trying to make the switch from cigarettes to vapes, and we have some ideas as to what the safest devices are to use. In 2017 a British firm called Cancer Research UK published one of the first long-term studies comparing smoking and vaping electronic cigarettes. It compared people who had switched from smoking to vaping, and those that had switched had significantly lower levels of carcinogens in their body than those who were still smoking. This was after a 16-month period and applied only to those that had totally stopped tobacco use. In addition to health issues, vapor disappears and leaves no residue. This means there is no smell on your clothing, hair or breath. When using a vaporizer, you also don’t have the possibility of burns that you might have with tobacco. With all that in mind, here are the three vaporizers that we like. We feel these are the safest ones out there, and they might be the best options if you are ready to make the switch from dry herbs or concentrates to vaporization. When you vaporizer your dry herbs or wax, you are heating your material from a...

What Hookah Pen Flavor Fits Your Mood?

Vaping is here to stay as a replacement for tobacco. It is an enjoyable way to smoke – but you are inhaling vapor and not smoke. Vaping has also grown, and there are several niches developing. It was only a matter of time before Hookah would make the move to the electronic induced vapor world. At Vapor Smoke Shop we have regular Hookah, hookah pen, and shishas for and for shisha or an on the go disposable or starter kit hookah pen for E-juices. The biggest difference between E-Juices and tobacco-hookah is the flexibility and portable nature of the pen. You can slip the pen into your pocket and have it available anytime you like.  It is also pretty easy to pass around among friends in a social gathering. Type of Nicotine. With hookah pens choose between freebase nicotine, which is the purest form compared to the other nicotine derivatives. Freebase nicotine can give the user a nice enjoyable throat hit and salt based nicotine, which is a more “stable” version of freebase nicotine gives zero throat hit. Either way, you get to have a choice of the kind of nicotine experience you want to have. One Time Only or Recharge? There are one-time use pens, which have about 200 puffs but can have occasional battery issues, dud devices, or leakage issues. We recommend the reusable, and rechargeable pens. You get a lot more flavor choices with the reusable Hookah Pens. Smok Vape Pen 22, Smok Stick V8, Aspire Breeze, Smok Prince stick, Smok Mag baby kits are all a great way to start off with a hookah pen. So with all...

Quit Smoking with Ejuice Vapor

A lot of people have broken the tobacco habit by switching to vaping. This involves getting vapor off of an ejuice liquid which is essentially vegetable oil.  It can be confusing and look way too complicated to the uninitiated. This is where having a good local vape shop comes in handy. Learning how to vape is not as difficult as it looks, but there are a lot of new terminologies to learn, and some basic concepts to grasp. Having someone guide you along the path can make the learning curve much shorter and a lot more fun. What Kind of Smoker are You? If you want to make the switch, you should consider the kind of smoker you are, and let that influence how you approach vaping. If you like the smoke itself, and handling your cigarette or cigar, a simple pen would be a good place to start. It will feel like a cigarette to a large extent, and there are single-use electronic cigarettes out there. They don’t offer many options for ejuice though, and that is the new world you want to explore. A pen does use ejuice, and you will have access to the wide variety of flavors out there. If you are more into the ritual aspect of smoking, a larger pen might be best, or even a mod. A mod is a battery powered device which can heat the eliquid in different settings. For example, if you wake up one morning with a sore throat and you still want your nicotine fix, then simply turn down the wattage on your mod so you’re still able...

What Are the Ingredients in Vape Liquid?

Thinking about switching from cigarettes to vaping? Already a committed vaper? In both cases, you may be wondering what’s in your vape liquid. It’s a pretty simple four-ingredient blend. Here’s what you need to know. Vegetable Glycerin The main ingredient in vape liquid is vegetable glycerin. This is the base ingredient that holds everything else together. It’s similar to how a lot of mixed fruit juices use apple juice as the main ingredient. It’s a relatively flavorless juice that’s easy to get and lets the other flavors shine through. Similarly, vegetable glycerin doesn’t add any flavor to the mix, so it doesn’t overpower the other flavors. Typically, vape liquid manufacturers use regular or organic glycerin. Both help to produce a lot of flavor, and ultimately, it’s a personal choice whether you want organic or not. Propylene Glycol This is a viscous, clear, odorless liquid that has a slightly sweet taste. It’s often used in food processing, and you can find it everything from drinks to cookies, as it helps to carry colors and flavors. Propylene glycol is also commonly found in asthma inhalers. Unfortunately, some people confuse propylene glycol with diethylene glycol, an ingredient in antifreeze. Note that these ingredients are not the same. They are completely different. Flavorings There are also flavors added to vape liquid. Popular vape juice flavors include strawberry, kiwi, apple, berry splash, banana, blueberry, and countless others. Of course, sweet fruity flavors aren’t the only option. Some vape liquid features tart flavors or sophisticated combinations of savory flavors. Some also feature menthol or classic tobacco flavors. Just as is the case with food, these...

The Rising Popularity of Salt Based Nicotine Vape Starter Kits

Nicotine salt-based e-liquids are becoming more popular every day. You can put these liquids in your open or closed systems, and many people use these nicotine salt e-liquids with their vape starter kit. What’s all the hype about? Here’s what you need to know about this new trend.   Salt Based Nicotine Sometimes referred to as “nic salt”, nicotine salt is a type of nicotine used in vape juices. This e-liquid takes the nicotine that occurs naturally on a tobacco leaf and turns it into a vapable liquid. This is different from so-called “freebase” nicotine. The absorption rate that is registered in your body is much higher than the regular freebase nicotine. The salt based nicotine is a lot smoother when inhaling the vapor. The flavor on these liquids are much more flavorful, giving the end user a more pleasant experience. The salt based e-liquids can mimic the same effect as smoking a hookah or smoking a cigarette. There are two types of salt based liquids: one for vaping in a sub ohm box mod and a sub ohm tank that uses 3 mg or 6 mg of salt based nicotine, the other for vaping in a open unit system such as Suorin Air, Suorin Drop, Aspire Breeze, Eleaf iCare and more. The real hype of salt based nicotine all started from the infamous Juul. Juul Vapor was started in 2015 from smokers who believed the public deserved something better than traditional analog cigarettes. That’s when they created something new and innovative in the industry and changed the way people vaped. With the popularity and high demand for Juul...

Choosing Your Vape Starter Kit: Enclosed or Open?

If you’re new to the world of vaping, you may want to invest in a vape starter kit. One of the decisions you need to make when ordering your kit is whether you want an open or enclosed e-cigarette. Here’s what you need to consider while making your choice. What is the Difference Between Open and Closed E-Cigarette Starter Kits? Pod systems are usually referred to as open or closed. Open means that you can use your own juice such as the Joytech Penguin, which is known for its unique style and powerful cloud. And then there is closed, like Juuls and the new Kangertech. Juuls, which are preferred by a lot of young vapers because you can charge it in a USB port and it has a very sleek design. Closed e cigarettes means that you have to use the manufacturer’s pod juice. As for starter kits there are also regular devices and AIOs (all-in-ones). With AIOs, you can’t remove the tank from the device. Regular ones usually have 510 connectors and the tanks will screw off, allowing you to carry multiple tanks with you, each with different flavors and/or coil setups. You might have a dual clapton build RDA for one flavor, a single round coil RTA for another, and a stock coil subohm tank for a third. AIO devices may be easier for new vapers, but it limits your ability to upgrade. You can also find a vape starter kit that features closed e-cigarettes. With this option, you have to buy small “tanks” for your e-cigarette. Those come filled with e-liquid in the flavor, nicotine strength,...
