• The Vaping Bandwagon: The Ins and Outs Part II

    On the last blog post about the ins and outs of vaping we took a look into the makeup of the bottom part of the common Kanger EMOW Vape Pen model. It is easier to understand how to vape and what exactly is happening when you vape when the products you are using are broken down and explained. Today I will be continuing to break down the rest of the vape pen for you so there will be a full and complete understanding of the vape pen. Again, I will let you know that the type of vape pen we are looking at are the basic models for most beginning vapers.

    The next part of the pen that I will be informing you of is called the atomizer. The atomizer is a small metal tube casing that typically has a male threading at the bottom to be attached to an electronic cigarette. Found at the top of the atomizer is an opening to allow the use of eLiquid. The eLiquid will drip down to fill the chamber of an atomizer, in order for the eLiquid to be vaporized. A cartomizer, which is much like the atomizer, except for the fact that the metal tubing is a bit longer. Inside the metal tubing of a cartomizer is a filler material, such as organic cotton. This filler material acts as a wicking system. An atomizer or cartomizer is also used inside of tank systems.

    One of the most well-known and widely liked features of these types of vape pens is the tank system or also known as a clearomizer. The tank system is being more commonly used today with atomizers for its convenience. It is also designed to hold more eLiquid than many of the outdated atomizers that were once leading the market. The tank system is a tube that is usually made from either a plastic or a Pyrex glass material.  When you are filling the tanks system it is very important to make sure that the eLiquid is only going into the clear part of the tank to ensure the coils will not be ruined.

    The last, and quite possibly the most important part of the vape pen is called the drip tip. A drip tip, also known as the mouth piece, is the part that is connected to the top of the atomizer or clearomizer. While vaping at high temperatures the casing of the atomizer or clearomizer is known to sometimes become very hot to the touch. Therefore, the drip tip has been introduced to us and is used so that your lip does not come into direct contact with the heat that is produced from the batteries and coil. For some models the drip tip was also designed so that you could easily drip e-liquid into your atomizer without taking off the mouth piece. This is done by pouring your drops of e-liquid into the center hole of the drip tip. However, this can be a bit risky to perform and is not usually recommended because it has been known to ruin many a vape pen.

  • The Vaping Bandwagon: The Ins and Outs Part I

    Even though, in theory, the electronic cigarette is a relatively simple little piece of machinery, there are a plethora of different components that all come together to make up the complete vaporizer. There are numerous different types of electronic cigarettes on the market and even more options for accessories to go along with them. The type of electronic cigarette we are going to be looking at today are going to be vaporizer models that are similar to the Kanger EMOW Vape Pen. These pens are generally a favorite for being used by beginners because of their ease of use and straightforward design. Let’s get to know the ins and outs of your vape pens.

    The best way to learn about the ins and outs of vape pens is to start from the bottom up! That being said, I’ll start by explaining the battery or tube part of the vaporizer pen. The tube is the housing to the battery for the electronic cigarette. There are various tubes come in a multitude of shapes and sizes to accommodate certain battery sizes and internal electronics. This part of the device will typically be found at the bottom part of the electronic cigarette. When learning about this part with any different type of vape pen it is important to be conscious of battery safety. The battery is obviously going to be the component of the pen that gives it the power to vaporize the eLiquid.

    Working our way up from the tube of the vape pen, we will move onto the next part which is the power button. The power button is what activates the battery, which will then deliver its power to the heating element of the pen known as the ‘atomizer’ or ‘cartomizer’. There are some buttons have multiple use functions for the vape pen. The physical button is referred to as a ‘manual’ electronic cigarette. The other form is known as an ‘automatic’ electronic cigarette and has no button. This type of vaporizer is activated by a sensor that detects when you’re pulling vapor from the device. So in other words, the sensor acts as the button of the eCigarette. Many vapers have shown to tend to lean in favor more towards the manual eCigarette design because an automatic electronic cigarette can be triggered to activate at times when it is not actually in use, which will deplete the battery life and sometimes ruin the battery altogether.

    The third and last part of the vape pen that I will be explaining in this post is called the connector. The connector is the part of the vape pen that sits at the top of the electronic cigarette and is used to attach the atomizer to the battery tube. The connector typically will have female threading to make the connection the male threading on the atomizer. The connector can range in various styles such as 510, 801 and 901. The 510 threading is the most common and easy to come across as opposed to the 801 and 901. Making sure you have the same threading connections for you battery tube and atomizer is a key component to properly setting up your vape pen.

    Happy Vaping!

  • Vaping first aid kit for your convenience Vaping for Convenience: My First-Aid Kit

    One of the greatest complaints former smokers turned vapers have about vaping is that, in some ways, vaping is just too damn inconvenient. On the one hand, this complaint makes some sense. There are a lot more elements to a vaping setup than there are in smoking, and the probability that one of these elements will break down in some way is far greater than the probability that you will run out of cigarettes in a place where you can’t find a convenience store to sell you a pack.

    On the other hand, all one has to do to avoid the inconvenience of vaping is stock up on a bunch of replacement materials, which should be relatively economically efficient, given that vaping overall is so much cheaper than smoking. So what are some vaping must-haves that can significantly increase the convenience of vaping? This is the stuff I’ve assembled in order to make sure I never find any reason to relapse back into smoking.

    1. Good E-liquid

    In reality, stocking up on good e-liquid is not a real necessity. You can always head over to your convenience store and buy some crappy cotton candy flavored e-liquid when you find yourself in a bind. However, you likely vape at least in part because you care about your health (I know I do) and you really don’t know what kind of stuff goes into most e-liquids sold in gas stations or convenience stores. I always like to have a big batch of e-liquid I trust on hand.

    1. Replacement Coils

    Unlike hoarding a bunch of e-liquid, hoarding replacement coils is an actual necessity (well, depending on your vaping setup, of course). Without replacement coils for my Kangertech Aerotank my entire vaping setup would become totally useless once the coil in use burns out, and there are few things that are more likely to make me consider smoking again than the prospect of dealing with nicotine cravings by using a Blu e-cig or whatever e-cig is available at gas stations, convenience stores, and other places other than smoke/vape shops. So trust me and hoard up on replacement coils. A pack of five will often cost about as much as a pack of cigarettes in New York City, so you have no excuse not to.

    1. Battery Charger

    This, of course, is more of a short term issue than running out of replacement coils, but running out of battery life for your vape is pretty annoying and, depending on how bad your nicotine cravings get, might result in you reaching for a cigarette. I usually like to use batteries that can be charged via micro USB, but of course this depends on your setup. If you use a mech mod, you might consider getting a second set of batteries for your convenience.

    1. Backup Tank

    Sometimes, shit happens. Your trusty tank that you have been using for months might suddenly find itself smashed on the concrete pavement, or it might start gargling out of nowhere while you’re on your way out of your house and in a hurry. It’s always a good idea to have one extra tank that you know is working and ready to go for those unexpected (and rare) instances. Who knows how long it will take you to find a replacement?

    So there you have it. I may be a vaping hoarder, but I’ll never have to resort to Blu e-cigs.

    Happy vaping!

     

  • how to use the aerotank turbo Guide: How To Use The Aerotank Turbo

    Welcome to Vapor Puffs guide on how to use the Aerotank Turbo by Kanger. The guide will start by looking at the individual parts that make up the Aerotank Turbo, and then give you a step by step guide on how to use it.

    What Is The Aerotank Turbo?

    The Aerotank Turbo is one of the latest upgrades to Kanger’s Aerotank atomizers. The Aerotank Turbo’s biggest and most noticeable change is the huge 6.0 ml capacity, which adds a lot of girth to the atomizer.

    how to use the aerotank turbo

    • Mouthpiece – This is where your mouth goes. It’s replaceable.
    • Mouthpiece Ring – This ring is what the mouthpiece connects to. It can be removed and replaced if necessary.
    • eLiquid Tank – This is where the eLiquid is stored. It’s the biggest part of the atomizer.
    • Coil Unit – The Aerotank Turbo uses two coil units that are hidden within the eLiquid Tank.
    • Connection Ring – This is the ring that has the Kangertech writing and Arrows on it. Twisting this ring clockwise loosens the connection to the eLiquid Tank, allowing you to access the Coil Units.
    • Airflow Ring – This Ring turns only turns a short amount. By turning it clockwise you open up more airflow slots.
    • Threading Connection – This is the small threaded part on the back end of the Aerotank Turbo. It’ll be the part that connects to your battery.

    How To Use The Aerotank Turbo

    • Fill the eLiquid Tank

    Turn the Connection Ring clockwise until the eLiquid Tank detaches from the base. Flip over the eLiquid Tank and you’ll see two empty tube (these lead to the mouthpiece, and will be filled by the Coil Units). Drip your eLiquid against the sides of the tank until it’s just below those two tubes, then reattach the base by lining up the Coil Units to the tubes, and twisting the ring counter-clockwise.

    • Adjust the Airflow Ring

    Set the airflow to whatever preference you prefer by twisting the Airflow Ring until you are at the amount of air holes you want uncovered. This can be adjusted at any time.

    • Attach to Battery

    Line up the Threading Connection to your battery and twist clockwise until it’s firmly attached. Then turn on your battery, and begin the vaping process. Everything should come naturally from here.

    • Replace the Coil Units

    After some amount of uses, you might notice the quality of your vaping starting to lessen. When that happens, it’s time to replace the Coil Units.

    Remove the eLiquid Tank from the base by turning the Connection Ring clockwise. Once it’s detached, you’ll notice two very thin tubes sticking up from the base. Turn each one counter-clockwise until they are detached. Then, attach the new ones by lining up the threading and twisting clockwise. Now, reattach the eLiquid Tank, and you’re all done.
