For newbies, the world of vaping can seem rather intimidating. All these terms, all the slang when you just want a simple, straight-up answer. Maybe a few weeks down the road you’ll be fully fluent in vape lingo, and chatting in ohms, volts, vapes, and mAh’s, but until then here’s an FAQ dedicated to the everyday stuff of vaping, particularly for those looking for a direct answer in simple terms. We get it!

What is a vaporizer?

It’s a device designed for e-smoking, like a basic e-cig, but more advanced. Advanced Personal Vaporizers run on batteries, use liquid nicotine, and offer nicotine if you choose. Just like e-cigs, there is no smoke, tar, or odor.

Is it really cheaper to vape than smoke?

While the upfront starter costs to use an e-cigarette or advanced vaporizer are higher than a single pack of cigarettes, the long term cost is significantly less. Here is a look at how you can save even more money when vaping.

Does using a vaporizer/ e-cig feel just like traditional cigarettes?

It’s a similar process and concept, however the actual motion of using a vaporizer is very different from dragging on a cigarette. You will inhale and puff, intake the vapor and nicotine, and exhale, but there is a difference in how you puff.

Can I seriously vape anywhere I want?

Generally, yes. It has become very common to see vapers using their devices in many public places, however there are some restrictions to keep in mind. Vaping on airplanes is prohibited, and a variety of US cities have bans in public places. And, then there is the common courtesy aspect; remember your vaping etiquette so you don’t make a fool of yourself.

How do I know what’s in my e-liquid?

While we can’t say what other brands have in their liquid, here’s what’s in ours:

  • Water
  • Flavoring
  • Nicotine
  • PG and VG

What does variable voltage and variable wattage mean?

Basically, these are settings on specific advanced vaporizers that enable users to manually adjust the heat of the atomizer for a personally tailored vaping experience. Using these devices requires a good amount of knowledge of amps, watts, and resistance levels for proper use and satisfaction.
