Vaping: Feel Good Stuff

c21b8b3801f27d9163ee22b7f55db0eeAre you aware of all the amazing ways switching to vaping can rock your world? Yeah, you are probably knowledgeable of all the scientific stuff; how bad tobacco is, why smoke sucks, and how tar can stick around long after the odor has dissipated, but what about the other side of the coin? The one directly related to your wellbeing and happiness? Here is a look at how switching to electronic cigs can do wonders for your life, and boost the positivity!

-Convenience: we all need more of this because 24 hours in a single day is never, ever enough! Getting more done faster and being able to cut corners has immense benefits, including making life more pleasant and freeing up time to be able to do stuff you actually want to; aside from college classes and putting time on the clock at work, aren’t their pursuits that require you to totally enjoy yourself? Factor in more convenience to make it happen!

-Less stress: Smoking comes with a lot of stress; where to smoke, when to smoke, who’s having an issue with you smoking, worrying about your health as a result of smoking, whether you smell like an ashtray, whether your teeth look bad, will you have time to smoke, did you remember to buy smokes… all of these little worries add up to big, constant worries. Why not kick these to the curb with the traditional cigarettes, and go with vapor cigs, which can be used in countless public places, add more convenience, and are simpler to use.

-More fun: Electronic cigarettes and vaporizers are totally more fun than traditional cigarettes. They go more places, allow you to go more places, and knowing you have so many more options with them, you have the ability to enjoy yourself more when using them. Grab a vaporizer starter kit ASAP!

-Being clean rocks: Ash is dirty, cigarette butts are nasty, and both start accumulating quickly. Your life will be much nicer if you can keep it clean, and e-cigs are the perfect way to get on this path. No butts, no ash, no continuous stream of filth.

-Better image: If you can about how others perceive you, smoking cigarettes can really tarnish your image. Vapor shows you are more modern and conscious of your health, and wouldn’t that make for a better outward appearance?

Switching to e-cigarettes can benefit your life in tons of ways, and really make daily living all the more enjoyable. If smoking cigarettes is still your thing, give vapor cigs a  try to see if vapor makes thing better!

Benefits of USA Made E-Liquid

main_secondary_banner_seo_landing_pagesWe have a strong commitment to carrying only American-made e-liquids. We are certain that having the best quality liquid leads to enhanced performance, great vapor, and obviously excellent flavors, and manufacturing here in the USA ensures this promise to our customers.

While many electronic cigarette companies have no problem outsourcing the manufacturing of their goods, including liquids, we are firm believers in manufacturing our liquids ourselves, right here in the US of A. This enables us to have a full view of what’s going on during the production, and enables us to be certain that the quality is at the highest level.

Having liquids made in America, where the majority of our clientele resides, allows us to guarantee the freshest products are getting to our customers. While nicotine e-juice does not have a short shelf life, per se, freshness can definitely make a difference. USA manufacturing means that there is no overseas travel for the liquids. Shipments will not get stuck in customs for an indefinite amount of time. The time from production till the cartridges and liquids are in the customers’ hands is shorter, and therefore fresher upon receiving.

VaporFi’s e-liquids are entirely made in America. Our customers are consistently pleased with the performance and flavors they get, and are happy to know that they never have to wonder about where their liquids came from, or what sort of mysterious overseas conditions they were created under. On the contrary to most brands, we are all about transparency when it comes to our liquids; we have even gone so far as to have VaporFi’s lab registered with the FDA, and all of our formulas on file with them.

Many users will attest to fresher liquids having better vapor production, cleaner flavor, stronger nicotine, and better performance overall. This is why USA-made e-liquids are such a big deal, and why we are so strict about keeping ours made here in America. Plenty of things are perfectly fine when made abroad, however we know from experience that when it comes to e-liquids, American made is best.

All you Need to Know About Tanks: Single or Dual?

rockets_btank_2Choosing the right tank can make all the difference when using an advanced personal vaporizer. Yet with all the different varieties, so many choices, and so many designs and styles, how do you choose the most awesome tank?

First of all, you’ve got to know the difference between vape tanks and figure out what you want because different styles obviously produce different results. Do you know the difference between single and dual?

Tanks can be metal, glass, or plastic. They can be simple or quite fancy looking. They come in different sizes and with different functions, so in actuality they do so much more than hold e-liquid. Tanks are vital to the overall performance of your vape.

Just some FIY; coil refers to the heating element, which is necessary for vaping with any advanced vaporizer. This is the component that heats and vaporizes the e-liquid.

Here’s a look at the different styles of tanks and what kind of performance you can expect from them.

Single Coil: A single coil tank has one heating element, or wick. They are easy to use, and can come in various capacities; large and small, and there are plenty to choose from. They are especially great if saving battery power is your thing because they consume less than other types of tanks, because they have only one head. These tanks also consume less e-liquid, which is great for making it last as long as possible. The simpler design makes them easier to work with, which is what many users are after.

Top Picks: Platinum Clearomizer Tank, PRO-L Clearomizer Tank, and the CLEAR Clearomizer Tank

Dual Coil: These tanks have two heating elements, or wicks. Ideal for more advanced users, dual coils are trickier to rebuild. Dual head tanks work exactly the same way as single coil tanks, just having two coils means that e-liquid gets transferred and heated between two coils rather than one. They produce much more vapor, in a much faster amount of time, per hit, than single coils, however they also use more battery power to get there. They are highly favored because they can produce incredibly smooth hits and tremendous flavor.

Top Picks: Titanium Tank, Titan Dual Head Cartomizer Tank, and the Bolt RDA

So that about sums up the basics on single vs dual coil tanks. Can’t pick between them? We suggest trying both to see what type gives you the kind of performance you want!

Vapers’ Lingo

imagesYes, you’ve heard it all, but do you actually understand it all? Vaping culture rocks, and while it may be a little confusing to the newbies out there, all it takes is a little time before you’re throwing ohm’s, eGo’s, specs and configurations around with the best of them. It’s a techy culture, and vapers, especially hardcore vapers are quite specific about the specifics! Along with numbers, models, accessories, and connection types are big topics of discussion so it can really be foreign if you’re new to the scene and stumbling upon a conversation.

If you’re in the dark about this peculiar slanguage, here’s a glossary to keep your vocab up to date!

510: The most common type of connection on advanced vaporizers where tanks get screwed in.

Atty/ Atomizer: The part of the device responsible for heating and vaporizing the liquid nicotine. They are replaceable with a short shelf life, so keep extras with you always.

APV/ PV: “Advanced Personal Vaporizer” or “Personal Vaporizer,” these are the correct current terms for advanced vaping devices.

Carto/ Cartomizer: A hybrid of a cartridge and an atomizer, designed into one piece for holding liquid and vaporizing it.

Cig-alike: Basic e-cigs that resemble traditional cigarettes; entry level types such as the Express.

Dripping: A method of vaping that uses a mouthpiece called a drip tip. It causes the e-liquid to drip directly onto the atomizer, or heating coil. It is a preferred method among many because it produces amazing flavor and throat hits.

Drip Tips: Mouthpieces designed for dripping.

eGo: Generic, general name for vaporizers. You know an eGo vape when you see one; larger than cig-alikes, they make no effort attempting to be cigarettes.

Head/ Wick/ Coil: These terms get tossed around A LOT and are used interchangeably. They are replaceable atomizer heads.

MAH: Milliamps per hour. The unit of measure for the power of APV batteries.

Mods: Typically a vaporizer that is on the larger side, requiring a larger battery, resembling flashlights. They enable you to do as much modification as you like.

Pass Through: Vaporizers that are designed with a passthrough charging cord; they can be used during charging.

RBA: Rebuildable atomizer. Extremely advanced vaping systems, and the fun part is you get to build them yourself. Not for beginners!

Tank: The versatile, replaceable compartment where e-liquid is held.

Popularity of Digital Cigarettes is leading to New Challenges for Employers

young-man-inhaling-from-an-e-cigarette

In recent months, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has been working to crack down on unregulated digital cigarettes. The problem is though all of this is still in its infancy. Although digital cigarettes are not yet defined as tobacco products by the federal government, many cities, states and municipalities are beginning to impose various restrictions and bans.

All while the FDA is working to set up governing rules, e-cigarette sales are sharply increasing—in some instances tripling over a two-year period.

Since most workplaces in the U.S. have become smoke-free facilities in recent years, the increase in people turning to digital cigarettes has led employers and management into new territory – specifically, how do they deal with employees who want to vape at work or while on a break.

First thing’s first, employers should create a digital cigarette policy. This policy should first cover whether e-cigarettes should be banned, allowed in smoking areas, allowed in approved areas (outside of any regular smoking areas) or whether they should be allowed inside the workplace. Regardless of how employers decide to handle digital cigs, it is important to create a written policy (or update an existing smoking policy). This way, if there are ever any questions or concerns, the company has the answers in writing.

It is typical for employers to set down rules for cellphone use, social networking and any other activities/ conduct that could interfere with an employee’s ability to do their job.

Pros and Cons of Workplace Bans

Before making a decision to limit or ban digital cigarette usage, employers should weigh the pros and cons of doing so. Chances are, as the employer, you could very well face opposition from both sides. On one hand, you’ll face angering those that wish to vape and on the other, you’ll face employees that will be bothered by the electric devices. In addition, for those who wish to vape, you could damage employee morale and productivity.

Unfortunately, you will never be able to please everyone.

For those who are pro e-cigarette, an employee who is able to vape at their desk will be able to be more productive than those who have to leave their workspace to take physical smoke breaks.

Making the decision to address the usage of digital cigarettes will by no means be easy or quick. However, by taking the steps to create a policy can help make your workplace more inviting and productive.

Let’s Talk About Health

86a9ac9c050611e39ecd22000aaa08de_7-1

You are most likely aware of the endless negatives that come along with smoking, and surely that’s part of your motivation in using electronic cigarettes. However, while e-cigs and APV’s are not regulated, nor is there tangible proof they have any positive effects at all, users would not be more satisfied than ever with them if they were not experiencing greater satisfaction and benefits. The industry is growing constantly, and it’s because people are finding great reasons to switch to them.

So how can vapor smoking have a positive effect on your life? Easily. Especially if you’ve been smoking cigarettes. Tobacco and its accompanying carcinogenic tar and smoke contribute to a whole lot of potential harm. Here is a look at what tobacco smoke and tar do to particular areas of the body. If you needed inspiration to get the hell away from smoke, may this serve you!

Your smile: staining teeth, contributing to plaque buildup, making a lovely setting for gingivitis to take root, and leaving you vulnerable to oral cancers. Quite unpleasant, you know? Smile brighter with vapor!

Your skin: the body’s largest organ can be a reflection of what’s going on inside. Tobacco tar and smoke can leave a nasty imprint, aging your skin with wrinkles and robbing it of a youthful glow. Wanna add 10+ years to your face? We didn’t think so.

Your respiratory system: your lungs need to be taken care of. They give you oxygen and air, and cigarettes put you in prime position to acquire bronchitis, pneumonia, emphysema, and lung cancer, which won’t just destroy your quality of life, but they’ll take your life if given the chance.

Your heart: can’t live without it. Cigarettes can destroy it, giving you heart disease and majorly upping your chances of heart attacks. You need your heart for everything, so protect it fiercely and steer clear of the smoke.

Your health; it’s more than just what you eat and how often you work out. Obviously those are cornerstones of the foundation of good health, but it goes deeper than that. Your choices on a daily basis make an impact, so choose wisely my friends! Vaping allows you to enjoy the pleasure with none of the smoke!
