I know too many people who buy them and throw them away like they’re regular trash afterwards. Disposable electronic cigarettes have a place though. If you haven’t vaped before and are looking to switch it’s a far cheaper alternative to getting a full starter kit, and with established vapers they make a great emergency back up (keep one in my car at all times for that very reason).
Vapor4Life recently released two new flavors – WOW Vapor Smilin Tobacco and Smilin Tobacco Menthol. The flavor is available in both 30ml bottles and cartomizers. I’ve been testing both new juices pretty heavily the past few weeks on a number of different set ups. I wanted to be as thorough as possible (no surprise for those who are used to my reviews).

For the longest time now V4L has exclusively used the 808 connection with all their branded products, the only exceptions being the OEM kits from a few years ago and a few mods they no longer carry. That era has reached its end though. Around June of 2013 Smilin sir announced on ECF he was working on a line of 510 personal vaporizers for V4L. While they haven’t been officially released yet, I figured it was a good time to delve into the differences between the two connections.

By December it became almost impossible to post from a computer due to all the lag, and it only got worse from there. On the 19th of that month though everything changed. The new head of the IT department at V4L upgraded the forum software and now it’s useable once again.

With Christmas just around the corner, and not to mention the biggest vaping holiday – New Years, there’s plenty of great options gift wise for the vaper or potential vaper in your life. Of course it all depends on what level of vaping they’re at. Here’s a quick rundown on some great choices from V4L.
This is a guest blog post by Morandir. It’s very rare for me to get personal in a blog, but I’ve been in a very reflective mood the past few days. The holiday season combined with my approaching three-year vaperversary brings it out of me. This has been one of the most trying years of my life.
This has been one of the hardest blogs to write. Even now almost two weeks later it’s still hard to put into words how great of an experience VaperCon was. It had almost nothing to do with the items being sold (I only bought one item while I was there – a very limited run mod), but with the people themselves. I have been to all three VaperCons that have taken place thus far. Continue reading
Every year at the end of January or early February is Chinese New Year. Not only is it the longest festival in China lasting for 15 days, there is what has been called the Chinese New Year hangover that follows. The entire country shuts down for CNY, and afterwards a very large percentage of their population changes jobs. This high turnover of employees translates to delays due to training, which in turn means more delays when getting product from China.
One of the best ways to meet fellow vapers in person are conventions. There’s quite a few of them around the country held throughout the year. There’s far more to them than just the buying and selling of multiple PVs (personal vaporizers) from vendors around the country, it’s where vapers get to interact with each other, explore new items first hand, and pick up a lot of tricks and tips from avid vapers.
This is a guest post by Morandir. Recently V4L announced the release of two new flavors- Smilin Special Cigar in medium and full flavor. Smilin sir has been working on these for a bit now (first samples appeared back in February of this year). They’re available in both 30ml bottles and pre-filled cartomizers. My final versions arrived recently, and all week I’ve been testing and using both flavors. Let’s take a closer look at the two new offerings.
