How To Juice

V4L carts come in one of two ways: pre-filled or blank. Pre-filled carts come with e-liquid (juice) already inside them. Blank carts are empty and must be filled with juice before using.

Blank carts

Why should I juice?

The advantage to pre-filled carts is that they’re ready to go right out of the package. Just take off the rubber tubes (also known as cart condoms), screw on a battery and vape. These are perfect for people new to vaping, and for getting the hang of vaping. Filling carts yourself is a great way to save a little cash. Its more cost-effective to buy blank carts and juice than getting the pre-filled ones. Once a vaper has enough experience, has decided on a few favorite flavors, and is interested in learning more, they often venture into the world of juices.

A Letter to Santa

This is a guest post written by Joyce B., an emergency management professional who has been enjoying Vapor4Life products for just over a year.

*Note: Wader is V4L’s Inventory Manager

Dear Santa Wader,

It’s been a long time since you’ve heard from me. I’m afraid that you may have gotten the wrong impression from my last letter. A lot of people say you are not the real Santa, but they are wrong. During the rest of the year, you may be mild-mannered Wader, but during the holiday season, you become Santa Wader. You have control of resources and production of all of our favorite toys in the greatest of workshops. I believe.

WOW or CoolCarts?

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

Vapor4Life sells two kinds of cartos: WOW carts and CoolCarts. Neither is better than the other, as they both have their own set of advantages and disadvantages. It all comes down to personal preference.

With Over 150 Different Flavors, Where Do I Start?

This is a guest post written by Keyzygirl from Key West, Florida. Laid back and vaping in paradise.

Electronic cigarettes are made of two parts – a rechargeable battery and a cartomizer (also known as a carto). The carto is the disposable part, which has nicotine (optional) and flavoring. Cartos come in two forms – pre-filled, or blank. The pre-filled cartos are ready to use right away. If you buy blank cartos, you also need to get e-liquid (juice), and then fill the cartos with the juice.

I am simply amazed at the flavor selection available to vapers. When I smoked cigarettes, I had just one brand, and was used to the same taste for years. Now I have tons of choices with more being added all the time. Continue reading

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!
