Vaper Spotlight: Gabby and Jordan

Today we’re featuring a couple customers who I met in our Northbrook vape shop. Gabby loves coming in frequently to hang out and meet other vapers. She was picking up some vaping juice and brought her friend Jordan to try some flavors. I sat down with them to hear about their experiences with vaping. Continue reading

Using e-cigs for a pick-up line?

What’s up vapers?! BHam is back with something a little….. different today. Have you ever thought about using your e-cig as a pick-up line? No seriously, a few of us at the Vapor4Life were having some fun with this idea and I thought, “Hey, why not ask other people?” So this was the scenario that I came up with!

Should I get the Dial-A-Volt or Vapor Zeus?

A lot of people ask me, “should I get the Vapor Zeus or Dial-A-Volt?” I usually say both, because they are totally different and both revolutionary in their own way. If you have to choose one, then I hope when you’re done reading this you’ll have enough info to decide. Both our Vapor Zeus and Dial-A-Volt batteries come in two versions – manual and auto. Actually the Vapor Zeus Dual Mode – get this – has BOTH options. Very cool. These batteries have a soft touch, just like our Vapor Titan stick batts. They come in 5 colors (black, blue, cigar, green, and magenta). Both the Zeus and DAV are KR808D-threaded and will work with Smileomizers, 808 tanks, CoolCarts and WOW Vapor cartomizers. The main differences between the Zeus and Dial-A-Volt is that the Zeus can be used as a passthrough, and the DAV’s voltage can be adjusted.

Ooops, I “forgot” my new Vapor Zeus ecig

So my dad made the switch! That’s right, after a year of pestering him to throw out his cigarettes, he finally broke the habit! So what got him to commit to vaping? He was finally ready!

When I first started to learn the ins and outs of e-cigarettes, I started telling every smoker I knew. I’d show off my e-cig like it was the hottest thing in town. Continue reading

“Smoking” electronic cigars

[Image courtesy of http://bit.ly/16nlRlw]

The cigar Nazis are out in full force. There are more than 35 states where you can’t have that great steak and go to the bar and enjoy an after-dinner cocktail. Unfortunately, it’s only going to get worse. But my friends, don’t be discouraged. I, like many cigar smokers, laughed at the idea of an electronic cigar. The ones I tasted were disposable, and I felt like I was smoking mud.

No smoke breaks, only Grand Theft Auto

It was 11:45 PM and was freezing. “What the hell am I doing out this late?” I asked myself. Oh yeah! The biggest gaming release of the year was last night! Finally, my wait was over for Grand Theft Auto V. But the wait last night was much longer than expected. Apparently, some other people heard of the biggest game of this century, and I was one of 400 people at my local GameStop. Great.

The Growth of Ecigs: Bigger is Better

This is a guest blog post by Kevin Cass.

When I started vaping, my goal was to find something so similar to cigarettes that my habit would transfer easily from analogs to e-cigs. I wanted a cigarette that wasn’t a cigarette. So my first e-cigs were the same size and shape as analogs and even lit up at the end when I inhaled.

What’s Buzzin’ Vaping Cousin?

This is a guest blog post by Via.

Did you know that Wednesday, July 24th was National Cousin’s Day? No, I didn’t either! But, luckily, Vapor4Life had a National Cousin’s Day Sale, which reminded me to call my favorite cousin!

My Favorite Cousin

I began smoking in 1967, and my favorite Cousin, Olivia, was right there with me, every step of the way. At family gatherings, we were always sent out to “the back 40″ to indulge in our stinky hobby; and no amount of being banned, no amount of pleading was going to deter us! We were both skinny then because we were busy smoking and not waiting in line for Gramma’s freshly churned ice cream and Auntie’s peach pie, still warm from the oven! Yum, yum!

One guest blogger’s opinion of the Vapor Zeus

Black Vapor Zeus Dual Mode Battery with cigar-colored Smileomizer

You have read my blog long enough to know that I don’t write reviews just to write them. I decide what I write about, and I have rules. With only one exception, (a bottle of e-liquid from V4L) I have chosen and purchased, each item I have reviewed. Yes, I do use coupons and discounts, just as you do, if they are available. I would like to think that it is due to my pride and the ability to say whatever I want in a review. But, honestly, I think that I am so sporadic when I write, that I manage to stay off the list of sought-after reviewers. Does this keep me from writing a review when I am moved to do so? No! When I find something really outstanding, I want to share it!
