How-To: Refill Your Juice

Refilling your e-liquid may seem a little daunting at first, we know all about it! You don’t want to spill it, you don’t want to pour it down the wrong part of the tank, you certainly don’t want to waste any of your precious e-juice! So here’s what you need to know about filling your liquid without running into problems. Keep in mind, you will probably spend a little time in the beginning getting the hang of it, however it won’t be long before you’re filling tanks like a pro!

The most common method of refilling a cartomizer is done by dripping the liquid in. This is the easiest way to do it, and the most guaranteed way of getting an accurate, spill-proof refill. Before you begin, make sure your battery is completely unscrewed from the tank. While it may seem like an extra, unnecessary step, it’s really important. Leaving it attached while you fill, and should a spill happen, your battery will be in the perfect position to get completely destroyed by the leak.

How to Fill Your Tank:

So, once you’ve got your battery unscrewed, remove the plastic cap. If you find a rubber ring beneath it, remove that as well. Once those are taken out and you have a clear view in, examine the area of the tank to make sure your wicks are in good condition and there are no burn marks around the wicks. If there are, dispose it. Otherwise, proceed with the refill.

Hold the tank at a slight angle, and begin dripping the juice in one drop at a time, till you get between 25-30 drops. You don’t want to fill beyond 75% capacity or you will be getting fully acquainted with leaks. Now you can close up that tank, attach it the battery, and get to vaping without any hassles! Voila! That’s it!

Filling a vape tank isn’t particularly difficult, however in the beginning it’s an acquired skill. So worth the effort over using cartridges, and in time it will be like second nature!

Don’t Be That Guy: E-Cig Users Who Make Vapers Look Bad, Part 1

audience-angry-with-man-on-phone

It is an unfortunate truth that there are those e-cig users who give us respectable vapers a bad name by completely ignoring basic e-cig etiquette. You know who we’re talking about—the vapers who like to act like e-cig evangelists, make a scene of vaping anywhere they go and who aren’t considerate to others when vaping in public.

VF Gift Guide: For the Ladies

Girls Who Vape Love VaporFiGirls who vape are rad. And if you’re shopping for a certain lucky lady, whether she’s your mom, sister, daughter, BFF, or significant other, and you know she’s fan of top-quality vaping products, here’s our gift guide specifically tailored to what the vaping gals are looking for.

For the Beginner:

Perhaps she’s still smoking analogs. Or she has dabbled in vapor but has yet to settle on an A+ e-cig model. Get her a super sweet Express Starter Kit if she’s into basic. This version is not only great-looking, but it gets the job done without a complicated set up. This is as close to a traditional cigarette as it gets, with all that VaporFi quality you can trust. If you think more advanced is more up her alley, an Air Starter Kit will be awesome!

For the Proud Vaper:

She vapes, make no mistake about it. She won’t touch anything containing tobacco, and knows her fair share about the vape gear out there. Get her something badass, such as a Platinum Pro vaporizer or a Rocket. Both of these will please anyone who receives such a fabulous, rockin’ gift, and both will show you care about her desire for lots of power and an exceptionally smooth ride. By just a glimpse, she’ll know you did your homework on this one.

The Hobbyist:

A VF Rebel II. Don’t think this is too advanced for her if she’s into hard-core vaping, because in that case, only the best will do.

The Girl Who Builds:

She’s a keeper! The Bolt RDA and/ or the Vox. This is what she really wants and she’ll be more than pleased to receive  it. This is what’s on every serious vaper’s must-have list this year!

Sure Shot Stocking Stuffers:

Make her eyes light up like a Christmas tree with any of these thoughtful extras! E-Juice, because if she vapes, she uses it! Extra bottles of e-liquid, maybe a Sampler Pack, perhaps in her favorite flavors or grab a few, new custom blends you think she’d like! If you know which device she uses you could get different compatible accessories to add to the package, and if all else fails, VaporFi gift cards go a very long, satisfying way!

Diacetyl… Dia-What?!

VaporFi Diacetyl-Free E-Liquid

Ever wonder what’s in your e-liquid? Like, besides the obvious PG and VG bases, what else is submerged in that clear suspension? Well, one substance you may or may not have heard of, diacetyl, is sometimes found in certain e-liquids, and it really ins’t the best thing to be breathing into the depths of your lungs. Precisely why we abstain from including this stuff in our e-liquids and e-liquid! (Yes, VaporFi makes only diacetyl-free e-liquids!) Continue reading to learn more about diacetyl, and the reasoning behind our commitment to keeping it out of your body!

Diacetyl is a commonly found chemical in both electronic as well as traditional cigarettes. While there has not been a whole lot of discussion regarding this particular chemical, and the FDA has categorized it as generally safe for consumption, when it is inhaled it has the potential to produce toxic effects.

What exactly is diacetyl? Also flying under the cover of butanedione, it is a soluble organic compound that is created as a byproduct of fermentation. It produces a strong buttery flavor, therefore it is most often used in a variety of substances, such as food and beverages as a substitute butter flavoring. 

Diacetyl has been linked to a specific type of lung disease, known as “popcorn lung,” which has been on record since the year 2000. Because of its highly serious destructive effects, it is an ingredient consumers should exercise caution with and avoid if possible.

What this has to do with vaping is that users should abstain from breathing this chemical into their lungs. While popcorn lung has not been attributed to using electronic cigarettes, especially due to the fact that those vaping with electronic cigarettes are exposed to so little of it, it is enough of a concern that many e-liquid manufacturers are heeding caution and keeping it out of their products.

So breath calmly and enjoy vaping with VaporFi, knowing full and well we have nothing to do with this stuff! All of our e-juice, all single flavors and all 30,000 different blends are all diacetyl-free. When it comes to e-liquids, there are tons of options out there and a lot of different ingredients that can produce super flavors without exposing users to the risk of something a scary as popcorn lung. Besides, fake butter flavor is not really that big of a deal when it comes to the liquids! You’re not missing anything, and if you’re really craving butter, why not have have some toast or a croissant?

  • The VOX and VOX Starter Kit are made specifically for the DIY-ers, the self-proclaimed vape geeks, and the guys who are much more down with building their mods themselves as opposed to receiving them ready to go. We totally get it; there’s a certain intimacy you have with your vape when you build it yourself, and this machine was made to blow some minds. A total guy-device, this is the way to a vape geek’s heart!
  • A VF Gift Card. We know, it’s not the most inventive gift, but it can be wrought with meaning and allows the techy to get exactly what they want.

Shopping for men is not always easy (whether you’re a guy or gal!), because as easy as they consider themselves to be, most have specific guidelines to that “easiness” that can make gift buying complicated. Guys who vape are typically of the tech-savvy, and one sure way to give a great gift is by going after the very cool, advanced items out there. Lucky for you, we’ve got plenty! ;)

Get Ready for a Holly, Jolly Smoke-Free Christmas!

Holiday Parties! Smoke stinks, we all know that! It also puts a hamper on just about everything when it comes to smoking and having fun with others. During the holiday season, your main focus should be on having the absolute best time, not worrying about scurrying off to smoke in seclusion or about how your hot date to the holiday party scrunched up their nose sarcastically regarding your tobacco odor! Keeping those awkward situations at bay is a must!

How can the holidays be made even more jolly with using e-cigarette vaporizers? Here’s a look!

-Merry-making typically involves having a great time with others, and this is the season for parties, socializing, and getting together to enjoy rituals of fun. Tobacco smoke gets in the way big time because most people are not keen on smelling it or breathing it into their lungs. It’s gross. Keep things light and funk-free by vaping; no smell means you keep everyone happy.

-You get to enjoy seasonal flavors! Come on, you know this is one of the best! Why not kick up that holiday spirit into overdrive when you blare the Christmas music in the car, sipping a peppermint mocha, as you munch on the panettone? Vapor smoking with a holiday-inspired blend, such as chocolate mint, s’mores, mint mocha, amaretto bourbon, or chai can add to your daily feel-good factor, and make the happiest time of the year even more enjoyable every day!

-Less time dealing with smoke, means more time having a good time! Whether that means socializing or staying in with the ones you love in the warmest of atmospheres! Who doesn’t love hot cocoa and old-timey Christmas flicks? Big plus for not having to go out into the frigid temps to smoke!

-Vape gear and vape pen starter kits make rockin’ Christmas gifts! Support the smoke-free lifestyle and help those you love get more out of their smoking while experimenting with a whole new, convenient lifestyle!

Want to know how vaping can make your holidays brighter? Here ya go! Because the only things that should be lit are the candles on your menorah, the lights on your Christmas tree, and the fireplaces to keep the ambiance cozy; not the cigarettes!
