Frequently Asked Questions

What is Vaping?

Vaping is the inhalation and exhalation of vapour using an electronic cigarette / vaporiser. It is the evolution of smoking, replacing many negative associations with the old habit of tobacco combustion. The technical term for vapour is called liquid aerosol, it can be compared to how a kettle heats up liquid like water and produces a steam vapour. Vaping works when the e-liquid is heated creating a vapour that is then inhaled and exhaled. E-Liquids come in many different strengths of nicotine and even come in nicotine free. Vaping is seen as a healthier alternative to smoking.

How do vaping devices work?

All vaping devices works in the same fundamental way:  A battery powers a coil heating element that turns liquid solution stored in the coil known as e-liquid into an aerosol. Different devices apply these principals in differing ways – and it’s surprising just how many variants have been created from such a simple concept.

What components makes up a vape kit?

Mod – This is the main body of the Vaping kit. They are called Mechanical MODs because they do not contain any circuity or electronic component whatsoever. When the fire button of a mechanical MOD is pressed, it physically makes a connection between the battery and the atomizer coil, causing it to heat up.

Tank – The tank, also known in the Vaping world as an atomizer, a clearomizer, a glassomizer and sometimes even a cartomizer are the combination of the heating element and e-liquid holder that turn your battery from a lithium ion power stick into a VAPORIZER!!

Coil – An atomizer head, which is also referred to as an atomizer coil, is the portion of a cartomizer/ clearomizer that makes contact with the battery on one side and with the e-liquid on the other side, thereby vaporizing the liquid into a vapour that can be inhaled.

Battery – Devices have either 1,2 or 3 batteries, more batteries allow more vaping to be done on a single charge. Be careful not to purchase fake batteries as these can be highly dangerous. An easy way to make sure you receive original and safe batteries is to buy from us!If you already have a battery and want to check its authenticity you can weigh it, 45 grams and over it is real, 44.9 grams and below is fake!

E Juice – Juices come in all sizes, strengths and flavours. Sizes of bottles vary from 5ml up to 120ml. Strengths vary from 0 mg of nicotine to 24 mg of nicotine. Flavours come in every imaginable recipes and combination

What are PG or VG liquids?

PG (propylene glycol) and VG (vegetable glycerine or glycerol) are ingredients in e-liquid which creates the vapour. Both are widely used in a variety of E liquid products for human consumption. PG is associated with a stronger “throat hit” but with less visible vapour, whereas VG has a sweetish taste and produces a much more visible vapour. Some vapers find PG irritates their throat and lungs and choose to use VG based e-liquids instead. Some e-liquids contain a blend of both ingredients to balance out the characteristics.

Which e juice should I get?

Again, there is no one flavour that fits all answers here, so the best thing you can do is to try out a few e-liquids from different brands and see which brand suits your taste. In terms of PG/VG composition, you’ll have to try out for yourself and decide what you like.

How do I refill my tank?

Generally refilling your tank is an easy process. Depending on the device you are using, the method may be slightly different. On the basic starter kits, you simply remove/ twist the top (also known as a Drip Tip or the mouth piece) and send the liquid into the tank. Other clearomisers require you to unscrew the base and refill the tank from the bottom. It is important to avoid the middle part of your device because that is the chimney to your mouth piece and you do not want e-juice spilling out as you attempt to re-fill. So always aim for the sides of the tank or where appropriate depending on your product
