Frequently Asked Questions
- How does it work?
-A standard vaporizer consists of a coil which is basically an element, made of metal wire (usually kanthal or stainless steel) wrapped to make a certain resistance and then stuffed with cotton (usually Japanese organic cotton). This coil is fastened inside the tank, the tank is filled with e-liquid of your choice and then fastened to a mod. Once everything is connected and the battery is fired the battery supplies power to the coil, the metal wire heats up all the e-liquid soaked in the cotton and produces vapour which you inhale. Coils need to be changed every now and then as the cotton will eventually start to taste bad. See how often coils need to be changed below:
- How does it help quit smoking?
–The nicotine contained in e-liquid absorbs through your lungs into your bloodstream once you inhale the vapour, the lungs are able to absorb more nicotine when vaping compared to smoking because when smoking the lungs will absorb the thousands of carcinogens and toxins before the nicotine is absorbed. With vaping, since there are very few ingredients found in e-liquid, the lungs are able to absorb a lot more nicotine allowing one to more easily satisfy their nicotine craving and gradually decrease the nicotine level they vape over time, eventually getting down to no nicotine and eliminating the addiction to nicotine.
- Is vaping safe?
–Although there are currently no long term studies on the effects of vaping. UK Health has released a study finding that vaping is 95% safer than smoking. Cigarettes contain thousands of harmful carcinogens and toxic chemicals while e-liquid contains no carcinogens and only 1 toxic chemical (nicotine), see what e-liquid is made of below:
- What do I need to get started?
– To get started you need a mod, batteries, battery charger, tank, a coil for your tank, and some e-liquid. Most starter kits include all of these items except for the e-liquid.
- How long does a battery charge last and how long does it take to charge?
-This depends mainly on on the style of unit, how often one uses their vape and how high the power output is set to. Most vapes are designed to allow you a full day of battery life until it needs to be recharged, however some units which require more power can drain the battery quicker, one of our knowledgeable representatives can recommend the right unit for you.
- Will my tank leak if I leave it upside down or on its side?
– Your tank should never leak unless a seal is damaged or unfastened.
- How often do I have to change the coil?
-This mainly depends on how often one uses their vape and the color of the e-liquid one is vaping, darker e-liquid causes coils to burn out faster. You’ll know its time to change your coil when you start to get a burnt taste and there isn’t much vapour being produced. The average coil will last 1-2 weeks or longer.
- How long does a bottle of e-liquid last?
-This mainly depends on the nicotine level one vapes and how often one uses their vape. A 30ml bottle of e-liquid can last on average 1-2 weeks or longer.
- What is the e-liquid made of?
-All of our e-liquid is made with the purest food grade Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerin (VG), FDA approved natural and artificial flavour extracts and Nicotine. All flavours are available in different nicotine levels. PG and VG are both approved safe for ingestion and inhalation by the FDA, nicotine is the only toxic chemical found in the e-liquid, this is only to satisfy the physical addiction developed over time from smoking.
- Is it cheaper than smoking?
-The average price of a carton of cigarettes today is approximately $90, if one is a pack a day smoker that’s almost a carton a week, which is almost $350 a month. After the initial cost of a starter kit, if one 30ml bottle of e-liquid lasts you 2 weeks, that’s approximately $60 a month for 2 bottles of e-liquid and about $15 for 2 coils, for a total of about $75 a month compared to about $350 a month.
