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)... read more

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... read more
  • 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... read more

  • Ecigs and Bloody Marys

    Any Bloody Mary fans in the house? Vapor4Life recently attended Highwood's Bloody Mary Festival. Bright and early Saturday morning I arrived with my car full of equipment and ecig products.

  • Two years, and counting: BHam's V4L anniversary

    It's been two years vapers, and you know what? It doesn't feel like it. It feels like I've been at Vapor4Life for my entire life.

    What makes a vaper's wife happy? My house no longer smells like an ashtray. My windows are clear and not glazed with smoke. My clothes smell like my perfume and not a cigarette butt. My carpets are free of holes and ashes. My house cleaning does not include ashtrays. My husband doesn't leave me alone at a restaurant to take a cigarette break outside... read more
  • Get creative with 150+ vaping flavors!

    I started vaping my first day at Vapor4Life about three  years ago. I was never a heavy cigarette smoker, but would enjoy  having an occasional cigarette when having a couple of drinks with  friends. However, I was a fan of other tobacco products. Throughout my  high school and college years, I smoked tons of hookah and would dip  on the baseball field whenever I could... read more
  • Congrats to our World Vaping Day e-cigarette prize winners!

    In case you missed it, yesterday was the second annual World Vaping Day! To celebrate, we held a contest on our Facebook page. We asked vapers to tell us how vaping saved their life. We had a total of 63 entries, so you can imagine it was pretty difficult to pick just three winners. We want to say thank you so much to everyone who shared their personal vaping stories with us! In the end we chose  Armani Pasqual for a Vapor Titan Kit, Jim Readdy for an Automatic Dial-A-Volt Kit, and Rita Jones for an Automatic Vapor Zeus Kit... read more
  • Vaping saved me how much cash?!

    So I've been loving life in the two years that I've been vaping. I'm breathing a hell of a lot better. I'm waking up refreshed, and I've got an overall good outlook on life. I mean, I feel like I've got my life back and I'm only 23! So where do we go from here? So I was on the E-Cigarette Forum (ECF) over the weekend, chatting it up with some fellow vapers, when I noticed something in someone's profile... read more

  • "Smoking" electronic cigars

    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... read more
  • 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... read more
  • Cooler Talk: E-Cig Edition

    As a vaper, I've been approached by many people who come from both sides of the "e-cig spectrum." You know, the "naysayers" who think this is a fad or on the opposite end, people who praise me for making the switch. Some people just genuinely want to know what e-cigs are really all about. Well, I'm here to tell you MY version of what I say to anyone who asks me about my vape... read more
  • Blowin' Smoke Higher than the Eiffel Tower

    "In three cases out of 10, for products with or without nicotine, the  content of formaldehyde was as much as the levels found in some conventional cigarettes." This is a statement from a French study that claims that e-cigs produce carcinogens similar to traditional cigarettes. Not only as a vaper but as a SMART and THOROUGH individual, I think this is BS, and I'll tell you why... read more
  • The Business Insider's "9 e-cigarettiquette laws" article blows smoke

    Scrolling through my Facebook Newsfeed this morning, an article my friend Keyzy posted caught my eye ("The 9 Laws Of E-Cigarettiquette: A Handy Guide For E-Cigarette Smokers"). "Ooh great", I thought "now here's something that looks useful." And then I notice, even better it's from The Business Insider - a credible source... read more
  • Ecigs aren't dangerous, people are just negligent

    Recently, many of you may have seen a new story out of Atlanta, GA, about a woman who was the unfortunate victim of an e-cigarette explosion. Luckily, she was not harmed and the only damage to her home was cosmetic. I read this story and I started to think, is the e-cigarette really to blame, or is negligence at hand? Don't get me wrong, no one should feel like their life is in danger from vaping, but I'm sure we're missing parts of this story... read more
  • Don't Just Vape, Advocate!

    This is a guest blog post by VaporVamp. As the negative effects of smoking have become widely known, smokers have become more and more stigmatized and marginalized. With secondhand smoke being a real danger, smokers are forced outside or away from other people to smoke.   Some non-smoking people take this a step further and seem to actively despise smokers for their habit, not even considering that for most, it is an addiction formed early in life (as teens or, for some, even younger) when they may not have had the best of judgment... read more
  • "Hi Officer!": Talking about ecigs with the police

    I'm back in the swing of things vapers, and it feels damn good to be  writing again. Last weekend, I had a buddy of mine come back home from  Wisconsin (he left Chicago after college for a job... but I'll bust his chops for that another day) and we were catching up on things. I  told him about this festival going on in town and how we should stop  by and grab a few drinks, because that's what you do when an old friend comes to town: you drink... read more
  • 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... read more
  • Cigar smokers, the future is here!

    I had no idea what an electronic cigarette or e-cigar was until recently. I was as skeptical as the next guy. What  intrigued me was how a company could replicate the experience of a  cigar other than smoking the real thing. Our owner, Steve Milin,  assured me it would be great, and it's as close to the real  thing with some positive exceptions... read more

    So, I've been working for Vapor4Life for a little over two years now, and I've come a very long way from when I started.

I started smoking back in high school, for a couple of reasons actually... read more

    This is a guest blog post by Morandir835. With the release of the 1300mah Vapor Zeus and Large Smileomizer, V4L  now has two size offerings on their latest personal vaporizer. I figured people would want the technical scoop on the new products along with my short review.

    Interested in making your desktop computer sick real quick? No? Well then why are you smoking near your computer? One way to get your computer to stop working at full performance is to smoke cigarettes by your computer. Computers have air vents to allow air to flow through and cool down the engine.

    This is a guest post written by Morandir835, a regular on V4L's sub forum on ECF, and an e-cig enthusiast. One e-cig piece I haven't explained yet is the passthrough, known by many as a "PT."

    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.
