Introducing the Original Vapor King Diamond Series Manual Batteries

V4L is proud to introduce our brand new Original Vapor King Diamond Series manual batteries. We have been working on perfecting these batteries for much of the year. Our Auto Diamond Series ecig batteries came out in early 2011, and since then our customers have asked when we’ll get the manual style battery for the Diamond Series. They were finally released earlier this week, just in time for the holiday season!

The ‘Go-To Electronic Cigarette Flavor’

Finding That Perfect Flavor

When I first started vaping I had the tendency to try as many flavors as possible. At the time Vapor4Life only had four flavors so this was easy to do. We quickly added several more flavors and now have more than 150. As I got into my vaping groove, I found that I tend to pick one flavor and stick with it. The flavor has changed over time, but I find that I’m always reaching for my ‘go-to flavor.’

Creature of Habit

I’m the type of guy that when I find something I like, I tend to stick with it. At the restaurants that I frequent, I usually find a favorite on the menu and order it every day. Once, over a three-week stretch, I ate tuna salad subs every day. For me, this translates naturally to vaping. Whatever my ‘go-to flavor’ is at any given time will definitely be found in my cartomizer.

Early Days

After the initial phase of trying many flavors, I settled into tobacco flavors. After a while that too became boring and my new ‘go-to flavor’ became Caramel Mocha Frappe. I vaped it all day all the time. Then V4L started adding WOW flavors and

I found some new favorites.

The Wowboy Days

The first flavor in V4L’s WOW line was Wowboy. The first time I tried Wowboy, I did not particularly care for it. But as it happens with many things, it started to grow on me. We began selling it and people raved about it. I tried it a few more times, and one day it just hit me that it really was a great flavor. It was like a switch going off in my head. The flavor was well balanced with a bit of tobacco, a sweet chocolaty hint, and just a touch of mint on the finish. There is a reason why it is our best selling flavor, it really does just hit the spot.

Changing It Up

I vaped Wowboy every single day exclusively for about six months. One day I decided I needed a change. We had just gotten a shipment of some new flavors including WOW Waffle. I instantly fell in love. Waffle became my new all day, everyday vape. After about a month, I picked up Wowboy again and instantly remembered why I loved it. I picked up again the old habit of carrying multiple flavors with me every day. I’d rotate through them during the day, even mixing in new flavors here and there. Choice is one of the great things about vaping. There are so many great flavors that you can vape a new flavor every week for almost the entire year. When was the last time you heard a smoker say that?

During the past month I have been rotating between the Nobacco USA Juice flavors. My two favorites are Java Mint and Beach Bum, but give me a few weeks and I’m sure I’ll be onto something else. I do tend to rotate flavors more now, but I will always have my ‘go-to flavor.’ It’s like that old, holey pair of jeans, the more you wear them, the more comfortable they get.

Until next time…VAPE ON!

VaperCon Recap

Well it has certainly been an eventful month for me. I went from Chicago to Shenzhen (via Hong Kong) for a ten-day trip, and just got back from a four-day trip to Richmond, Virginia for VaperCon.

My Trip to China – Part 3

On Saturday, I made it back to the good old USA. It was a whirlwind trip around the world, clocking in at over 15,000 miles, and one incredible journey!

The trip back was easier than going there. It took four days for me to adjust in China, but just two days for me to feel like myself once I got back home. I was still feeling pretty lousy when I wrote my last post. I was sick from the travel and at that point, wanted to come home. But once I felt like myself again, I enjoyed every moment. I started eating more traditional Chinese food, which was absolutely delicious. My favorite was the Szechuan because I LOVE spicy food. I just wish I had more than nine days!

My Trip to China – Part 2

I’ve been in China for five days now and it has been an exciting experience! I did some time traveling on the way over. I left on Thursday about 1 PM Chicago-time and after a 15 hour flight, arrived on Friday at 5 PM Hong Kong-time. Basically I lost a day to travel. Don’t worry, I’ll get it back when I come home.

I’m Going to China!

Just a brief personal introduction for those that do not know me. My name is Mark and I have been working at V4L for two and a half years, or in other words, since the beginning. I started using ecigs a couple of weeks before coming to work for V4L. One of my big responsibilities at the company is product development and testing. I have extensively used every product that we have ever carried and I consider myself to be a product expert in terms of electronic cigarettes.
