We highly recommend the videos of Tony B. on The Vapor Trail channel or Steve on the Legion Vapes channel if you’re an explorer of the YouTube black hole variety or below are some commonly asked questions. If your question isn’t here, get in touch with us – we love talking all things vape.
Q: Is vaping just as bad as cigarettes
A: No, that’s the short answer. The fact that those smokers that swap from ciggies to vaping are no longer breathing known carcinogenic smoke from the act of combustion.
Q: Is vaping right for me?
A: If you’re an adult smoker then the answer is yes. Non-smokers should not take up nicotine in any form. The addictiveness of nicotine as provided by vaping devices is as yet not fully understood, but it should be assumed that it does have the potential to cause dependence.
Q: What are PG or VG liquids?
A: PG (propylene glycol) and VG (vegetable glyerine, or glycerol) are ingredients in e-liquid which create the vapor. Both are widely used in a variety of products for human consumption. PG is associated with a stronger “throat hit” but with less visible vapor, whereas VG has a sweetish taste and produces a much more visible vapor. 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 of each.
Q: What vaping Flavors are there?
A: There are literally thousand of flavors of e-liquids you can buy. Everything from traditional cigarette flavors, drink flavors, fruit flavors, dessert flavors, and just about anything else you can think of.
Q: What does it mean when my screen says check atomizer?
A: This is a message to tell you the circuit that is required for your device to work has been broken and it needs checking. With tanks with replacement coils it is usually fixed by unscrewing the coil and screwing it back in. If that doesnt work give us a call on (03)85285784 and we can talk you through some of the other fixes.
Q: What’s a drip tip?
A: A drip tip is the mouthpiece where you inhale the vapor from.
Q: What’s a box mod?
A: A box mod is a square shaped vaping device.
Q: What’s an RTA?
A: RTA stands for rebuildable tank atomizer. It is a device that allows you to build your own atomizer coils in a way that operates just like a regular tank.
Q: What’s an RDA?
A: RdA stands for Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer. It is a device that allows you to build your own atomizer coils but It does not include a tank to hold juice and you drip the e-liquids over the coils every time they start to get dry.
Q: What is a Squonker?
A: A squonker is a device that combines a box mod with a squeezable internal bottle that allows e-liquid to be squeezed through a tube that connects to an RDA through a hole in the 510 pin.
