Essential E-cig Knowledge You Shouldn’t Begin the Vaping Journey Without

A life change starts with bravely letting go of old habits. If cigarette smoking has been part of your life, deciding to quit may well be one of the most difficult decisions you could ever make.

Many people suggest the use of electronic cigarettes or “vaporizers” (Vape or vaping for short); these are battery-powered devices that provide a satisfying vaping experience with the benefit of quelling your need for nicotine and without all the harmful toxins and carcinogens that come along with a standard tobacco cigarette. Vaping also opens up a new world of options for flavoring and enhancing your smoking experience in way that are not possible through any other means

Do e-cigs really help you quit smoking?

E-cigs are known for giving people the same satisfaction that cigarette smoking offers minus the growing list of health hazards, tar, harmful second hand smoke and increasing amounts of chemical additives. One of its best features is that vaping does successfully aid in efforts to quit the habit.

The American Council on Science and Health pointed out a study by Addictive Behaviors Journal to support the claim on e-cigarette use being a useful tool for helping smokers quit. While the results of the study don't generally apply to everyone, it found out that vaping does help significantly reduce the use of regular cigarettes. Of the former smokers who switched to vaping, only 6 per cent had gone back to their old cigarettes smoking habit. Even more astoundingly, 46% of people who originally smoked both electronic cigarettes and tobacco had decided to give up traditional smoking within a 12-month period.

How Vape Supplies Can Personalize Your Vaping Experience

One of the best parts about vaping is the wide array of choices that allow each vaper to truly personalize their own experience. There are so many different options when it comes to vape supplies that vapers can match their accessories to truly complement their personality.

Theorem Atomizer by Jaybo
To Build or Not To Build
If you are into putting things together, then a rebuildable atomizer may be just the choice for you. This type of atomizer allows you to actually change out the wicks and coils within your RDA, different wire and coil styles will produce different flavors in a juice. If you are not mechanically-inclined, then you can simply purchase tanks that are powerful enough to accommodate your style of vaping.

Flavor Profiles
You don’t have to stick with one type of e-juice as you can experiment with a wide variety of flavors, or even customize your own flavor. Those who are straight to the point about vaping tend to stick with the same kind of e-juice while other vapers like to experiment with lots of different flavors.

Cuttwood Premium E-Liquid
Battery Life
Choosing a battery is largely based on your vaping habits. If you enjoy a powerful vaping experience, then you need a battery with a high current. However, the life of that battery will not last as long as others, and will need to be recharged. Batteries with lower currents last longer, but do not pack the same punch.

The History of the Electronic Cigarette

Electronic cigarettes have become a normal part of life in modern society. People from all walks of life can be seen using E-cigs globally. But that took some time as the history of vaping dates back to the early 1960’s.

The Beginning

The idea of the electronic cigarette was first introduced in 1963 by a man named Herbert Gilbert. Although it was not the same blueprint for the modern e cigarette, Gilbert’s design was to replace the burning of tobacco and paper with flavored air that was moist. Nevertheless, all the attempts at commercializing Gilbert’s design were unsuccessful. Part of the reason for that is the way smoking was perceived during that era. Health concerns over smoking were not as prevalent as they are today. Also, technology had to do some evolving.

The Creation

It was not until 2003 that e cigarettes as we know it were created. The setting was China and the creator was a pharmacist by the name of Han Lik. His motivation was to create a safer alternative to smoking after his father had died of lung cancer. Lik was able to patent and sell a nicotine-based e cig in China through a company called Ruyan, which actually means “like smoke” in Chinese.

Worldwide sales

E Cigs first made their way into Europe in 2006 and then a year later they started selling in the United States. A year after that, they debuted in New Zealand and Germany. Meanwhile, e cigs were banned in places like Australia, Canada and Panama. In 2009, the state of New Jersey also put a ban on vaping in public, which would later be rescinded. It was during that year that the FDA continued to maintain its stance that e cigs were dangerous.

Tobacco Companies Move In

Tobacco companies ignored the initial attempts made by Gilbert when he first introduced the concept of the e cigarette in 1963. That continued all the way up until 2013. In the ten-year span in which e cigs first started selling, it ballooned to a $1.5 billion a year industry. This caused tobacco companies to take notice and start buying in.

When it comes time to replenish your vape supplies, visit the top e cig online store that offers excellent products at affordable prices. Custom Vapes & E-Cigs NC has a large supply of vaping products from all the leading manufacturers and has something for every kind of vaper.

Vaping Mods and How They Work

New vapers may not be overly familiar with all the vaping terminology as there is a lot to get used to at the beginning. One of the more popular vaping terms is a mod, which may seem a bit foreign to novice vapers. Here’s a closer look at mods and how they function. Feel free to visit Custom Vapes and E-cigs in Monroe or Waxhaw, NC for additional insightful vaping tips.

First, the term mod is an abbreviated form of the word modifications. E-cigarettes have mods, but that is just really another term used to describe the part of the E cig that connects the battery and the atomizer. It could also connect the battery to other components such as a tank or a cartomizer.

Vapers have been known to make their own modifications to their custom E cigs and all of those variations became known as “mods”. That is why it can be difficult to encapsulate the term with a simple definition. Mods can even be duplicated by companies and made somewhere else for a much cheaper price. Furthermore, cheaper mods are also subject to cloning.

The whole concept of mods is not generally something that is picked up right away by novice vapers. It actually takes a little while to fully grasp the concept. To make things a little clearer, mods have assumed two different classifications.

The mechanical mod is pretty basic as it does not come with any internal circuit boards. It is essentially a tube with a top and bottom cap that each connect to your battery. There are also ways of locking your mechanical mod. The drawback of these mechanical mods lies in the fact that there are no internal components to keep from draining your battery or shorting out your atomizer.

To compensate for those aforementioned issues in a mechanical mod, there was the creation of regulated mods. These regulated mods are equipped with internal circuitry which will cause it to shut down should a problem occur. Many regulated mods are also equipped with its own OHM reader. Regulated Mods help balance the relationship between current, resistance and voltage, which is an essential part of vaping. But one of the main functions of regulated mods is to ensure battery safety.

Custom Vapes & E-cigs offers a wide variety of mods for sale, in addition to a vast inventory of vape supplies. As a leading online e cig store, Custom Vapes & E-cigs caters to all kinds of vaping styles and tastes.
