Differences Between Ash Cap, Diamond and Stealth

Ash cap, Diamond, Stealth

An electronic cigarette is composed of a battery and a cartomizer. The most common type of ecigarette battery that you will see people using in public is the ‘stick’ battery. These batteries are skinny and of all the kinds of electronic cigarettes, look most similar to an analog (especially white ones) – when compared to ‘mods’. Each stick battery has one end that is threaded and screws onto a cartomizer. The other end has one of three options: ash cap, stealth, or diamond.

Be Prepared With Enough E-Cig Supplies

This is a guest post written by Morandir835, an e-cig enthusiast, admin on the Vapor4Life forum, and a regular on their ECF sub forum.

I recently got back from a long road trip to visit family. Flying wasn’t an option because of timing and my dogs. Before switching from smoking to vaping long road trips were torture. My wife wouldn’t allow me to smoke while I drove, so I could only light up at rest stops. I didn’t have to worry about that this time. I vaped the entire time there, on the way back, during the visit, pretty much constantly.

Tanks, Ohms, and Coils

About a month ago, Vapor4Life began selling mods (modified batteries). These

Dual Coil Replacement Cartos

other batteries are capable of using single cartos, or special cartos with tanks. Tanks can also be used on our Original Vapor King Diamond and Stealth Series batteries. The purpose of a tank is that it allows the vaper to enjoy their e-cigarette longer, without having to refill with e-liquid as often. For most people, it will last all day without needing a refill. All of our tanks come with two drip tips, and one carto designed specifically for these tanks.

Vaping in the Great Outdoors

This is a guest post written by a fire spinner from the Midwest.

It is the New Year and time for me to plan my summer vacations. For most, this may include a trip to a national park, or a local hotel to get away from the kids. I travel out-of-state to teach workshops at fire gatherings, which are for fire dancers to learn different techniques, styles, props, and socialize. These are held in areas meant for camping, which I really enjoy. Continue reading

Unusual Vaping Terminology

Every industry has their own lingo that people use to communicate, including the electronic cigarette industry. There is a lot of jargon used by people who use personal vaporizers. Some terms are self-explanatory, such as manual, automatic, battery, center post, flavor, LED tip, throat hit, cartridgevaporjuice, and nicotine strength. Continue reading

Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

Earlier this year, V4L released its new line of batts, the Diamond and Stealth series. When I first joined, manuals were all I used due to the fear of killing an auto with juice. After my first Diamond arrived, those fears quickly passed due to the performance of the new autos. Months went by, and after a long wait, the manual versions of the Diamond and Stealth batts are finally here. After a few weeks of putting them through the rigors of testing, I can say without any reservation these are the best batts V4L have ever released.

Chargers and The Affects on Batteries

This is a guest post written by Morandir835, a regular on V4L’s sub forum on ECF, and an e-cig enthusiast.

V4L offers three types of chargers: Vapor King Wall Charger, Vapor King USB Charger, and Vapor King Slim Wall Charger.

Wall Charger

The VK Wall Charger is V4L’s first version. It plugs into any wall outlet. It’s the most bulky of chargers, but is the only one that doesn’t pose compatibility issues. They charge batteries to about 4.25 volts ‘off load’. They also have the highest average charge times of all the V4L chargers. I have tested all 3 lengths using the wall charger. The average charge times are as follows: Shorties – 82 minutes, Regulars – 128 minutes, and Xls – 176 minutes.
