Vaping is an easy lifestyle change to get into. Most vapers are current tobacco users transitioning away from smoking or former tobacco users that have completely switched to an alternative and, unlike smoking, many people feel a bit overwhelmed by specs, features, configurations, and options at the start.
That's one of the nicest things about vaping: you can jump right in, and go as far as you want by customizing every aspect of the experience. However, if you're a beginning vaper, you'll definitely want to get familiar with the basics before going too much further.
What's an e-cigarette?
It's pretty simple: an electronic cigarette (or vaporizer) is a battery, a heating coil, and a tank (sometimes also called a "clearomizer" or "cartomizer") for e-liquid. The battery powers the coil (the "atomizer") which heats up to evaporate the e-liquid, producing a vapor - unlike traditional cigarettes, there is no combustion or smoke involved.
What are e-liquids?
These are simple mixes of vegetable glycerine ("VG") and propylene glycol ("PG") with some flavoring agents and, optionally, nicotine blended in. Both PG and VG are food-safe products also used in a variety of medical applications. Our e-liquids undergo rigorous testing in ISO grade labs, both in the US and in Costa Rica, to guarantee quality and consistency, and you're welcome to drop by a one of our stores to sample any flavor in our lineup.
