The Flying Vape

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

This week I am heading to California for another flow arts festival called Fire Drums. As I packed and started to assemble my vape kit I began to wonder what the rules were for e-cigs on planes. A quick search on the TSA website showed nothing as far as restrictions go, so I did a search and found a few news articles.

From Smoke to Vapor (Part 2 of 2)

This is a guest post by Rantz, who writes surrounded by a cloud of vapor.

 

By the summer of 2010 I’d had enough of smoking. It was a long time coming, built up over the decades, without a single event that pushed me over the edge. Instead it was a thousand little annoyances that ate away day after day, like nibbling ducks, culminating in my serious consideration of giving up the 30-year vice that had become such an integral part of my identity.

Understanding Tanks For Electronic Cigarettes

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.

A tank can be confusing for new vapers. There are actually three different types, and many sizes available of each type. I hope to shed a little light on that situation.

V4L’s Newest Mods

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

Everyone who knows me knows that I have been a Vapor4Life fan for a few years now and I love that they are coming out with new and exciting things for us to try. It’s great to be able to try new things like fat batts and mods from a company you already use and trust. It’s scary when you have to venture into unfamiliar territory to try something new. Now V4L has it all.

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

Let’s Talk About Juice, Baby!

This is a guest post written by Clover, a college student and vapaholic from the Midwest.

Let’s Talk About Juice, Baby.

Alright, you’ve got your favorite handy-dandy V4L Diamond battery, the Slim Chargers, the Drip Tips, and all the other gadgetry. Now what? So many juice choices! Where to start? There’s USA juice, WOW juice, Premium juice, and VG juice. What does that all mean? Well different PG/VG ratios for starters, but I’m no techie. For me it’s about taste, throat hit, and vapor production. Flavor is most important to me, next being throat hit, and vapor production is least important, although I do love clouds! When I started out, I tried all the sampler packs. Pre-filled cartos are a good way to get an idea for a flavor, but the true flavor is in the juice. So when I would try a flavor I liked, I would buy the bottle. There is definitely a difference between pre-filled and filling your own with bottled juice. I highly recommend filling your own cartos with your favorite juices. Your taste buds will thank you! Continue reading
