There is a lot of technology behind the great flavor and performance of ecigs. We examine all the ins and outs and find out what vaping designs work best and why. 

  1. What Is Salt Nic?

    What Is Salt Nic?

    Departed FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb hit the interview circuit hard in the last weeks of his tenure, and he has made it abundantly clear that the FDA may ban pod systems like Juul. If this ends up being the case, it would be nice if the FDA acknowledged that sweet flavors are not driving the teen vaping epidemic.

    Juul will do everything in their power to parry this regulatory assault. With Marlboro maker Altria buying 35 percent of Juul, the ecig giant will have plenty of expertise and capital at their disposal. Altria supports a flavor ban, which would take the attention off of Juul. Another obvious scape goat are

    FDA Juul Ban in 2019?

    Juul and their partner Altria, maker of Marlboro cigarettes, are in favor of a flavor ban. Is this because this would eliminate their competition? The biggest threat to Juul’s market share is an FDA ban on prefilled nic salt pod systems. Also known as closed pod systems, an FDA ban on prefilled pods may become a reality if the teen vaping epidemic has not abated by this spring.

    The second biggest threat to Juul is the emergence of refillable, or open, pod systems.

  3. The Truth and Technology Behind Juul and Nic Salts Revealed

    The Truth and Technology Behind Juul and Nic Salts Revealed

    Politicians and the news media have fallen a step behind developments on e-cigarette regulation front. While they still focus on flavor bans, departing FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb has identified prefilled nicotine salt pod systems, made famous by Juul, as the driving force behind the teen vaping epidemic.

    In an interview with NPR, Gottlieb reiterated his shift away flavors and gas station sales. It will be interesting to see if this shift in focus will continue to be pursued. Will the FDA target the actual devices preferred by minors, or will they fixate on the sweet flavors preferred by adults.

  4. Use These Hacks to Open a Stuck Vape Tank

    Use These Hacks to Open a Stuck Vape Tank

    Jammed Vape Tank

    Your vape tank is all jammed up and cannot be opened. What you have is a classic “stuck tank” on your hands. This issue can be caused by over tightening, a threading issue or an inability to get a good grip on the tank. I have had plenty of jammed up tanks. Luckily, I have never had to deal with a tank impossibly stuck on a mod. This is fortunate. Once a tank is safely detached from the mod, you are free to implement any method, within reason, to open it. Granted, a hammer blow, power drilling or spiking the tank on the pavement will probably not achieve the desired result. But you only have to worry about flying shards and a broken tank, rather than a venting 18650 battery. On the flip side of the coin, a tank attached to a mod should be approached with care and additional safety precautions should be observed. If you

  5. Smok Nord Hits All the Right Chords

    Smok Nord Hits All the Right Chords
    How is “Smok” pronounced? The “smoke” versus “smock” debate remains unresolved but there is no arguing against the merits of the Smoktech Nord. An innovative refillable vape pod kit, the versatile Nord provides either direct to lung (DTL) and mouth to lung (MTL) vaping in a streamlined package. The Smok Nord kits come with two coils: a cloud generating 0.6Ω mesh coil and a nic salt friendly 1.4Ω coil. And of course the obligatory micro-USB cord. It closely resembles another Smok vape pod, the Novo, but is a fundamental upgrade. It is amazing that such a small and seemingly simple device can provide two totally different vaping experiences. Smok clearly had devices like the Aspire Breeze 2 and Aspire Spryte in

  6. Complete Review of the Smok SLM

    Complete Review of the Smok SLM

    Smok SLM

    The Smok SLM is proves the adage that what was old is new again. The smallest of the Smok vape pods, its form and function recalls the original disposable e-cigs and cig-a-likes that kicked off the vaping revolution. Like the original cig-a-likes, the SLM has no fire button and is instead air activated. Unlike the first cig-a-likes, and the current crop of prefilled pod kits like Juul, you can choose your own juice adventure from a vast universe of nic salt e-juice flavors. The SLM may be small but it has a big claim to fame: one of the tightest and most satisfying draws of any device. At 4.4 inches in length and less than a half

  7. Vaping Crushes Nicotine Replacement In New Study

    Vaping Crushes Nicotine Replacement In New Study

    Vaping Supported By Gold Standard Research

    As valuable as our vaping success stories are, it is always gratifying to have personal observations verified by peer-reviewed research in high impact scientific journals.  A research team led by Peter Hajek, a psychologist at Queen Mary University in London, found that e-cigarettes were almost twice as effective for smoking cessation as nicotine replacement therapy. This vindication is particularly sweet because it was published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM). Back in 2015, NEJM was responsible for publishing a notorious and now debunked study on formaldehyde in e-cig vapor. The study was sponsored by the National Institute for Health Research and Cancer Research UK. The results also demolished the myth that e-cigarettes are used by smokers to supplement, and not replace, thei

  8. World's First UL Certified Vape Pen

    World's First UL Certified Vape Pen

    Vaping Safety

    The Joyetech eGo AIO, an acronym that stands for All-In-One, is a graceful design that has stood the test of time. It has also withstood the rigors of safety certification testing at Underwriters Laboratories (UL). As the world's first UL certified vape pen, it brings the issue of vaping safety back into the forefront. Vape pens have an enviable safety track record. The London Fire Brigade recommended smokers switch to e-cigs because vaping prevents house fires. This is just another example of the UK being light years ahead of the US in regards to the benefits of vaping. Perhaps because of this record of safety, the occasional vape battery injury almost always goes viral and results in plenty of hand-wringing from vaping critics.The truth behind the headlines is far different. There has been one recorded vape battery fatality. In the US alone, house fires caused by cigarettes have killed

  9. Battery Comparison: 18650 vs. 21700 In Vape Mods

    Battery Comparison: 18650 vs. 21700 In Vape Mods

    The Long History of the 18650

    The rechargeable 18650 lithium ion battery has long been the standard issue power pack for vape mods. The 18650 name is derived from the battery’s dimensions: 18 mm in diameter and 65 mm in length.  Designed in the 1990s, this redoubtable design has found its way into laptops, flashlights, electric bikes and even the original Tesla roadster. You read that correctly, the industry disrupting Tesla electric roadster is powered by the same batteries that you use in your favorite mod. Tesla made a smart move picking the 18650 for their first car. Literally billions of
