Vaping – A Journey Through its History
Is vaping old?
Vaping is a modern trend, but even new vapes have their roots in ancient history. Ancient Egypt is known for its vaping techniques, such as using hot stones to vape herbs. Thousands of years ago the first shisha was introduced to India. All those techniques led to the invention of current vapes as we know them today.
Who invented the contemporary e-cigarette?
The modern history of vaping has its origins in ancient times. The first who came up with the idea of an e-cigarette is Joseph Robinson in 1927. However, it was in 1963 when Herbert Gilbert and his “smokeless non-tobacco cigarette” made vaping popular. The Chinese firm Hon Lik made the first modern e-cig in the mid-2000s.
History Of Vaping: Definition & Facts
One of the most popular, socially tolerable and favorite drugs of people is nicotine. As such, people have tried different ways to consume it. They tried to smoke it, to vape it, to chew it, or apply it on their skin. It shouldn’t surprise you to hear about people who try to inject nicotine no matters how deadly that could be. You can find nicotine in tobacco. And often they mix and consume tobacco with other substances like marijuana while drinking alcohol.
Many devices have been invented to satisfy people’s obsession with nicotine: hookahs, bongs, etc. However, we live in a tech society. That’s why recently, vaporizers have become a cool trend with their variety of tastes and forms.
Vaporizing has a long history. Herodotus describes, in Egypt (5th century B.C.) people were heating herbs and oils on hot stones to vape. The orator Cicero gave him the title “The Father of History,”. Therefore, we might have to trust him about the ancient origins of vaping.
Then, more than 1500 years ago, Irfan Shiekh invented the first shisha. This happened in another ancient part of the world in what is now Afghanistan. Later on, his dynasty introduced this way of smoking in India.
If oriental smoking devices were cool years ago, now it’s all about the e-fashion.
When did the trend of e-cigs, electronic pipes, e-liquids start?
Unknown to many, in 1927 Joseph Robinson came up with the idea of an electronic cigarette.
However, it’s another name we relate to vaping. It was Herbert A. Gilbert who in 1963, historical data says, came with the idea of vaping. And in 1965 he patented this invention.
Could it have changed history and saved lives? Well, we can’t tell because, unfortunately, nobody knew of his “smokeless non-tobacco cigarette” back then.
In the 80s Phil Ray and Normal Jacobson worked more towards commercializing the idea of e-cigarettes.
However, in the 90s FDA didn’t allow tobacco companies to introduce e-cigarettes to the market.
In Europe, vaping was also popular, and in the 90s “Eagle” Bill Amato invented the cannabis vaporizer. Of course, Amsterdam was the place. Interestingly enough, they based the German stationary/desktop vaporizer Volcano, from 2000, on his revolutionary ideas.
Modern History Of Vaping
All those events led to the invention of vapes as we know them today. It was in the 2000s when the Chinese pharmacist Hon Lik made the first e-cigarette. In 2006 his employer Ruyan Group, now Dragonite International, helped him introduce his invention to the world (first to Europe). What triggered his motivation, one might ask? The fact that his father died from lung cancer due to smoking is the sad answer.
The first e-cig appeared in the U.S. in 2007 and has become a very popular trend among people. Since then, vaporizers have gone through many modifications. We should mention the two brothers from the UK, Umer and Tariq Sheikh. They made e-cigs more customer-friendly, so to say. They invented the cartomizer.
Modern Vaporizers: Components & How Vapes Work
There are few essential elements of vaporizers you should be familiar with when choosing your vape.
The battery is the main component that also gives the name of all the vaporizers we know, “e” for electronic. You can activate it by pressing a button (manually) or by inhaling (automatically). There’s a LED in it that shows you when the battery is on. Note that there are some cases of vape explosions. Therefore, familiarize yourself with the ways of proper use and maintenance. Last but not least, there are different charges available on the market.
They attached the atomizers to the battery. They vaporize the liquid that’s in your vape. It does so by heating it up. When it is hot enough, the device creates vapor and this way it sends you the nicotine hit. It is one of the primary reasons people vape. The atomizer works with a coil the battery powers this. Just to say that the atomizer (when there’s no clearomizer or cartomizer) goes through a “dripping” process. This gives you the chance to feel the pure taste of the flavor you’ve chosen. This is the result of, as the name suggests, the liquid from the tank dripping directly on the atomizer. The good thing is that atomizers have a simple design. However, one of the cons of atomizers is that you need to refill them too often.
Sometimes there are other components between the atomizer and the tank. But let’s focus briefly on the difference between atomizers, clearomizers, and cartomizers.
Cartomizers connect directly to the battery and heat the e-juice of your choice. It does this till it reaches the perfect temperature that creates vapor, just like an atomizer. In addition, there’s polyfill around the heating coil in them that allows a longer time of vaping. This is the main advantage when compared to atomizers.
Clearomizers are great if it’s your first time. They are the newest on the market and give you the chance to control what you vape. It’s great because you can see the amount of liquid in the tank as they are transparent. Some of their advantages are that they have a longer life-cycle. Furthermore, their wick structure offers a better flavor experience. However, not surprisingly, they are more expensive.
Cartridges and tanks
These are the containers that hold your nicotine liquid (unless you choose a nicotine-free option). Remember that pure nicotine can be lethal. That’s why always keep your vaporizers away from kids and pets. The e-juice, or e-liquid, comes in different tastes. Apart from nicotine and flavors, there’s propylene glycol (PG) and/or vegetable glycerin (VG). Both have their pros and cons. However, in case you want to avoid some common side effects like dry and sore mouth, better go for VG.
The mouthpiece, in the end, is not the most complex of parts. It’s important because we use it to inhale.
The Future Of Vaping
Vaping has a long history. Thanks to ancient practices we have the present vape gadgets we can find everywhere. They range from the local gas station to a prestige website.
There are many variations of vaping, and we can even claim that vaping brings people together. You can use it with friends on a night out or chat about it with ex-smokers on online forums.
Additionally, the different flavors on the market make vaping enjoyable. Also, rechargeable and refillable kits can save a lot of money in the long-term.
On the other side, many studies reveal some negative side effects of vaping. They include dry mouth, dizziness and the accumulation of some toxic ingredients that can cause cancer.
Also, the popularity of vaping raises the question if all this advertising doesn’t push minors into vaping and smoking. On the other side, aren’t songs and trends that promote promiscuity and aggression much worse than a harmless vape?
Incidentally, many countries have already put some strict restrictions on vaping. Despite that, there’s still a long future ahead of vaping.
Always familiarize yourself with the products you choose and be aware of the areas where you can vape. Vape in moderation and taste history!

9 Best Pod Vapes for 2019
In order with the best first but really all of these are awesome pod systems in different ways. Please note that unlike some of the other ‘best’ compilations where the website gets paid to list the product or to link to it, our list is only comprised of the best products we’ve tried from our online vape shop. So these are the 9 best refillable pod vapes as decide by the vapebazaar.pk experts:
- SMOK Nord
- UWELL Caliburn
- IJoye Shogun
- Suorin Drop
- Aspire Breeze 2
- Suorin Edge
- Voopoo Drag Nano kit
When it comes to discrete and stealthy vaping, few devices can compare to some of the new pod systems on the market – especially those that we’ve named on our Best Pod Systems list. Vapers are falling in love with the small size and portability that pod systems offer – and while we love our huge powerful sub-ohm devices, sometimes a small on-the-go device is exactly what we need in the moment.
While vaping pod systems are still growing in popularity, vapers of all levels have been increasingly adding them to their device collections. Not familiar with pod vapes, or curious about what the best pod systems are? No worries – in this article, we’re going to cover everything you need to know!
What is a Pod System?
A vaping pod system is a device that is a step above a basic e-cigarette, but not as advanced as some of the larger full-sized personal vaporizer options. People who are new to vaping, and those who may be transitioning from smoking, may find personal vaporizer devices to be too large, too confusing, or too unfamiliar. However, they may find that a basic e-cigarette is too limited and doesn’t allow them enough control over their experience. For these people, vaping pod systems are the answer.
Pod systems are called “pod” systems because they accept pods – small refills of e-liquid made specifically for the device. Most of these pods come pre-filled with a chosen flavor, although some newer models have refillable pods that allow you to use whatever juice flavor you desire. These refillable pod mods are a good middle step between cigalikes and advanced vape systems. Pod systems are all about simple vaping, stealth and compactness. Below we go through the best pod mods currently available with their pros, cons, and pricing. Take a look through and find the right pod device for your needs.
Brand new on our updated list and straight to the top is the UWELL Caliburn pod system. It looks just like a lot of the other pod systems but it doesn’t act like them. Don’t let looks deceive you, this is best tasting pod vape with the longest lasting pods/coils.
The UWELL Caliburn features a brand new proprietary technology called Pro-FOCS. This maximizes the vaporizing of vape juice so that you get the most flavorful vape of any pod system. The cloud size for a pod system is amazing. The pod vape juice capacity isn’t the biggest on the list but most vapers would take more flavor over refilling slightly more often.
The UWELL Caliburn pods might not have a big capacity but they last for ages. We can’t even compare it with any of the other pod vapes on this list its that impressive. Some vapers are reporting they’ve refilled their pod over 60 times and it’s still going strong without any loss of flavor. Refilling isn’t the easiest of the pod vapes on this page hwoever. In order to refill you need to pull the top off the pod, this can be tricky for the very first time you do iy but it gets much easier after that.
The original UWELL Crown was a tank that produced flavor like no other when it was first released. Now it seems that with their very first pod vape, the UWELL Caliburn, they have set a new bar for flavor in a pod system.
Just look at that SMOK Nord in gold, it’s a beautiful thing! Here at vaping.com we simply had to add the Nord to our best pod vapes list. You don’t just have to take our word for it, one of our customers said “this one is the legend among all the pod type vape devices.”. And another “not harsh, easy to hold, nice pull”. It really is an awesome device and SMOK continue to impress the vaping world with their compact pod systems that produce such amazing flavor. It’s a massively popular pod system in our vape store.

Wolf down your vape juice with a SnowWolf Mfeng UX 200W Mod.

+ Awesome temperature control suite
+ Excellent UX
+ Great build quality
– where’s the embossed Wolf head?!
– not the most ergonomic mod in this list
#3 Tesla Poker 218W
Hold all the aces with the Tesla Poker 218W Mod.
In the first place at 218W it’s very nearly the highest wattage mod on the list. Teslacigs is known for mods with excellent build quality and distinctive themes. Continuing the Poker theme the mod is in the form of the Ace of Hearts. By the way the heart is a symbol of wisdom and the start of a loving relationship between you and your mod. The digital camouflage pattern on the sides of the mod adds a nice contemporary feel.
Beyond that Teslas impressive chipset powers an awesome control suite which features Memory Mode, Taste Mode (Normal, Soft, Hard, User), Temperature Control Mode, and TCR. Lastly, dual 18650 batteries can fire up the Tesla Poker Mod up to 218W and a resistance level as low as 0.05 Ohms!
+ Extensive temperature control suite
+ Great build quality
+ Slide on/off switch avoids accidental firing
– Digital camo not to everyone’s style
– Not the most ergonomic mod in this list
#4 Voopoo Drag 2 177W
The Drag is back, and it means business.
Masters of the mod Voopoo did what hardly anyone thought possible, they improved on the original Drag mod. The Voopoo Drag 2 mod has the standard Drag stylish resin side panel design on one side. On the other side it’s emblazoned with DRAG in large letters which give it a super stylish appearance. The edges of the Drag 2 have been beveled which give it an improved ergonomic feel.
The Drag 2 is small and lighter than it’s older brother, despite that Voopoo have managed to increase the amount of power by 20W from 157W to 177W. It also got a new updated GENE.FIT Chip. The GENE chip was famed for its super fast firing as well as it’s accuracy. With the GENE.FIT comes the same level of performance but with new FIT settings.
FIT1 is optimized for battery life (it’s a bit underwhelming), FIT2 is for flavor (tasty) and FIT3 for big clouds (and they really are big). The GENE.FIT was the result of data mining 11 million GENE chips and spent 15 months in R&D testing over 180 different tanks. Other than the individual settings it protects sub-Ohm tanks from burn out, can provide longer battery life and can intelligently match with tanks. Impressive stuff.
+ Effortless massive clouds
+ Amazing flavor
+ Super fast & accurate
– FIT mode not all that
– Off center & raised 510 connector
#5 SMOK G-Priv 200 W
Touchscreen technology on a vape mod.
Although more commonplace now the SMOK G-Priv was the first mod to have a full side taken over with a touchscreen. And what a touchscreen, 2.4 inches of beautiful OLED display protected by shatter-resistant glass. Don’t forget to use the screen lock button, if you don’t you could accidentally change all kinds of settings. The UI is super simple to use in addition to the graphics intuitively guiding the way. And it really helps the G-Priv having a touchscreen as it comes jam-packed with features.
As expected it comes with Temperature Control (200-600F) and the power adjustment from 1 to 220W. What isn’t expected in the inclusion of Temperature Coefficient of Resistance (TCR) adjustments and modes for ni200, titanium and stainless steel wire. Furthermore you can even change how quickly you want the coil to heat up. All you need to do is navigate to settings and choose your personal preference.
+ Touchscreen is amazing
+ Impressive level of functionality
+ Looks great (minimalistic in comparison to other mods)
– Just don’t forget to turn the screen off!
– UI could use more colors
#6 SMOK MAG Grip 100W
Jump the gun with the SMOK MAG Grip 100W Mod!
One of the most solidly built mods on the market. Built with a super durable zinc alloy its hefty weight makes it satisfying to hold. The iconic design of the SMOK Mag Grip takes the form of a semi-automatic pistol. You fire the mod using the satisfyingly clicky trigger. And the handgun like features don’t stop there.
The best bit about the Mag Grip is the magazine style battery compartment. To release it all you need to do is press the silver button on the side of the mod. The magazine slides effortless out, to reload it you just push it back into place until it clicks into place. Its been designed for usage with 20700/21700 batteries but you can also use a 18650 thanks to the battery adapter.
Battery life isn’t the best when using an 18650 so if that’s your preferred option your best off having a spare battery to hand. We always recommend charging batteries in an external charger to avoid wear and tear on your USB port in the mod.
Performance is what you would expect from a SMOK mod. It creates impressive flavor but maybe not quite as good as a few others on this list. Any negatives for the SMOK Mag Grip are easily offset by the unique design features. We certainly don’t need to hold a gun to your head to make you buy one!
+ Awesome design
+ Great build quality
+ Super satisfying vape
– Battery life isn’t the best
BEST SQUONK MODS
+ Perfect for vapers looking to take flavor to a new level
+ Good for vapers who want to build their own coils
+ Ideal for vapers looking to save money on coils
– Extra preparation not for everyone
Squonking may be a relatively new fashion but it’s actually been around since it was invented by E-cigarette Forum members back in 2009. Squonkers squonk because you get all the flavors of dripping with half the hassle. Here are the best squonk mods our experts have found so far in 2019.
#1 Dovpo Topside Dual 200W
Dual battery sqounking goodness.
One of the best and most affordable dual battery squonk mods on the market. As you might expect from the name the Dovpo Topside Dual 200W mod is a top filled, dual battery squonker. Dovpo teamed up with The Vaper Chronicles to make the Topside Dual. With two of the biggest names in squonking, you know you’re in safe hands.
It’s a pretty chunky mod as a result of accommodating not only two batteries but also a hefty 10mL squonk bottle. Whilst we’re talking about the batteries it should be said that the battery compartment is a bit of a fiddle to open and shut.
The Topside Duals menu is nice, bright and super easy to use. In there you’ll find all the settings you’d expect and the edition of the puff count/timer is a nice touch. It features a lovely clicky firing key and you can even squonk while vaping which is pretty cool. As you would expect from a squonker the flavor is intense and clouds massive.
On the downside the Temperature Control isn’t the best, certainly not the level of TC that you would expect from a DNA chip. One final thing that should be mentioned is the beautifully knurled squonk cap. It’s so super grippy you’ll be looking forward to having to use it again.
+ Battery life is excellent
+ Great vape juice capacity
– TC isn’t the best
#2 Vandy Vape Pulse X 90w Squonk
Super lightweight mod for squonking on the move.
Pulse X 90W is a 10W increase from its predecessor the Pulse 80W. There’s also is a setting that you can use called ‘hard mode’ which can increase the wattage by another 10W. So it can actually makes it all the way to 100W, a further justification for updating your Pulse 80W (if you have one).
In the first place the display is one of the brightest and cleanest displays we’ve seen on any mod, let alone a squonker. You could probably use it as a torch if you had to but you can turn down the brightness in the menu if you so desire. Given that the battery drains pretty quickly even when using a 21700 this is probably a good idea. You can also use 20700 and 18650 batteries (note you’ll need the provided adapter for 18650s).
Side panels easily pull off to expose the leakproof squonk bottle and the battery compartment. Everything fits snugly inside and nothing rattles around when your moving.
The buttons are super clicky, as clicky as can be in fact. We’ve not used a vape device with clickier buttons before so if that’s something you like you should definitely check it out.
Need a new squonk? Treat yo’ self to a Vandy Vape Pulse X 90w Squonk mod today!
+ Stunning good looks
+ Super bright and clear display
+ Build quality
+ Clickiest of the clicky buttons
– Battery life could be longer
– Can get hot depending on the tank
+ Super performance in a small package
– Not for vapers who love a nice big screen
Don’t fancy carrying around a massive mod but still want mod levels of performance? Mini mods give you mod levels of performance but small enough to easily fit in your pocket or purse.
#1 Voopoo Drag Mini Mod
The perfect mini-mod for beginners.
To begin with an integrated battery and special FIT settings make this one of the best mods on this list for first-time mod users. We’ve already featured the Drag 2 in this list so we were super excited fire up the Drag Mini.
Incidentally, while it’s slightly smaller than the Drag 2 and the original Drag it’s still quite large when it comes to putting in your pocket. However, it will fit in a decent sized trouser pocket. The weight isn’t insignificant, you certainly won’t forget that it’s in your pocket.
All the edges have been beveled which makes it much nicer to hold. All the Drags feel very well made and will no doubt take a fall or two before developing issues and the Drag Mini is the same.
The firing button is quite small but it’s still easy to fire with either thumb or forefinger. It’s not the clickiest of the buttons compared to some mods on this list and the fire button on my Drag Mini is a bit loose. Doesn’t make any difference to operate but does detract from the feeling of quality. Adjustment buttons are the same but roughly half the size.
The adjustment of settings is a bit clunky, certainly in comparison with some of the mods with large touch screens. The screen isn’t very bright but you can download a firmware update that addresses this issue.
Some vapers complained that the 510 tank connector was off center in the Drag so they’ll be pleased that on the Drag Mini its slap bang in the middle. The excellent GENE.FIT chip has 3 fit modes as covered above in the Drag 2 review. Incidentally, although we weren’t too fond of it there it actually makes much more sense in the Drag Mini as it’s targetted much more towards beginner vapers.
It might be Mini by name but it’s mighty by nature. The performance is astonishing for a mini-mod. Clouds are massive and the flavor production is amazing. Users of the Drag and the Drag 2 will be surprised just how good the Mini is at replicating its predecessors’ performance.
Despite a few negatives the Voopoo Drag Mini is still a super awesome mini-mod, order one today and find out for yourself!
+ Awesome performance
+ Looks and feel great
– Screen and UI could be improved
– Can’t vape while it’s charging
#2 GeekVape Aegis Mini 80W
The ultimate super durable mini-mod.
The GeekVape Aegis Mini is as the name suggests a smaller version of the popular Aegis Legend mod. Another mod that’s perfect for mod beginners. For example in this case it has an integrated 2200 mAh battery which has quick charge capabilities. It charges really fast which is a good thing as the charge doesn’t last that long, unfortunately.
The standout feature of the GeekVape Aegis Mini mod is the fact that its water resistant, dust resistant and shock resistance. It can even survive 30 minutes underwater at less than a meter. And when we say shock resistant we mean MIL STD 810G-516.6 military-grade shock resistance! This is one durable mini-mod.
Here at vaping.com we love how this Mini Mod looks, especially the camo & gunmetal version. It’s super ergonomic, fits snugly in your hand and is nice and easy to vape with. The rubber on the outside not only aids shock resistance but means the Aegis Mini mod is super grippy.
The screen is pretty good for a mini mod and is coupled with a user interface that is easy to use. Brightness can be easily adjusted too, a very nice touch. It has to be said the two adjustment buttons are super clicky. So much so it’s actually loud to use them.
A really cool feature is the ability to adjust your power curve so that you can perfectly customize your vaping experience.
As a result of all this it’s such an awesome mod that it’s actually hard to find negatives. The only issue we found was the rubber stopper on the bottom of the device which provides access to the micro USB slot. It’s attached using a small thin bit of rubber and isn’t going to last very long. Thoughtfully GeekVape has provided an extra in the kit.
So if you need a durable mini mod order yourself a GeekVape Aegis Mini Mod today!
+ Super robust
+ Great looking device
+ Good clouds
+ Power curve options
– Battery life
BEST POD MODS
+ Smallest, most portable mods
+ Surprisingly satisfying levels of performance
– Battery life can be a concern
For vapers who want to minimize the hassle when vaping. Pod mods use replaceable vape pods instead of tanks. When the flavor and cloud production dissipates, you simply switch out the pod. In short vape life is easy with a pod mod. Furthermore they’re smaller than even mini mods, so perfect when on the move.
#1 Lost Vape Orion Q
A super quality pod mod at a budget price.
In the first place the Lost Vape Orion Q Pod Mod simply had to be on this list. For more than one reason, I’ll get onto that shortly. The Orion Q is a paired back version of the insanely popular Orion DNA Go pod system. Gone are a load of features and a load of the price with it. For example at the time of writing you can get your hands on one for just $31.99 – half the price of the DNA Go.
Orion Q replacement pod price is reasonable too, just $8.99 buys a pack of two. They last well too, roughly around a week with two refills a day. Just remember to give a good amount of time to saturate the wick with vape juice.
One of the reasons the Orion Q is so popular is the excellent build quality. A stainless steel chassis with carbon fiber panels give it a hefty weight, about 85grams with the pod attached. Pods slide in and out easily thanks to the release switch on the side. A top knurled fill cape is super easy to remove and refill. The firing button on the side is nicely positioned.
Lastly although the battery is only 950mAh, it seems to last forever. Depending on how much you vape it should last between one to two days.
In conclusion get an Orion Q, a pod and order yourself some nic salts today. You won’t be disappointed.
+ Excellent build quality
+ Great looks
+ Super durable
+ Awesome price
– Not as good as the Orion DNA Go
– Vape juice capacity, not the biggest
– 1.0 Q pods not the best for MTL
– Long charge time
The smallest and sleekest pod mod from the masters of the pod system.
To begin with let’s start with the negatives. For instance the Suorin Edge replaceable pods have a tiny vape juice capacity of 1.5mL. But actually the device is so small and sleek they’re never going to get in more than that. As you’ll most likely be vaping nic salts that isn’t much of an issue. In fact you should have a few pods on the go at the same time so that you can switch flavor whenever you want. Pro!
So a negative that’s turned into a positive. Ok, so the battery is only 230 mAh. Normally that would be a massive con but Suorin has really thought this through. In the kit you get two batteries, yes two! Much like the pods you simply slide one out and slide the other one in its place. Furthermore they charge super fast too.
As a result of the USB-C port you can get a pod fully charged in only 30 minutes. Before you can drain the other battery! Innovative thinking from Suorin. Who needs a big battery when you can have two batteries!
The action of switching either the batteries or the pods is super satisfying. Hence they both have small magnets which clip them into place with minimal effort. The small light between the battery and the mod lights up when the connection is made and looks super cool. It has 3 colors, green for a full charge, blue for medium and red for low.
In addition to this the Suorin the Edge looks and feels great. The metal chassis will protect against any minor accidents and as a result of being metal doesn’t scratch too easily. The batteries follow the same sleek design, but sadly the Edge replacement pods aren’t quite as sexy. But as the disposable part of the kit that’s for the most part understandable.
Lastly with the Suorin Edge your not going to get the massive clouds but that comes to be expected with an ultra-portable pod mod. What you do get is a super tiny and discreet mod at a JUUL killing cost. In this case at the time of writing the cheapest mod on our list at just $23.99.
+ Perfect portable vaping
+ JUUL Killer
+ Swappable batteries
– Vape juice capacity not that big
– Battery life
To summarize there are so many great vape mods out there the difficulty is finding the one that works best, for you. We hope this compilation of the best vape mods in 2019 has helped you make decide what you want.

We locked up our experts in the vaping.com lab and didn’t let them out till they picked 7 of very best pod systems.
Aspire Breeze 2 AIO Kit
Unlike other pod systems which are either draw activated or use a fire button, the Breeze 2 has both. Another awesome feature is the ability to adjust the air flow to your preferred level. Adjust the beautiful knurled airflow ring if you want a tighter MTL draw. Despite being small Aspire have managed to squeeze in an impressive 1000 mAh battery. The Breeze U-Tech coils are a new design which works well in either the Breeze 2 or the original Breeze. Air gets pulled in from the top, down through the coil then up through another air slot in a U shape. Because the vapor travels through the coil twice you get twice the flavor. In MTL is your game you can pick up some of the 1.2 Ohms coils for even more flavor.
What can we say about the Suorin Drop that hasn’t already been said? Well first up the Drop has been one of the best selling devices in our vape store for a very, very long time. Our customers love it and when you vape with it you soon understand why. The beautiful teardrop design is amazing to hold and it’s so small you can hide it in your hand. It’s super easy to use, put it to your lips, draw & vape away. The pods pop off the top to expose two fill slots on the bottom. Fill with your favorite salt nic vape juice and click it back into place.
Battery life is good for such a small device and it charges back up nice and fast too. At under $25 it’s a snip, even if you have other devices it’s a good idea to have a Drop. And if you don’t believe us read the reviews below and on our Suorin Drop product page.
The perfect pod system for this writer, the Nord from SMOK never leaves my side. A bit fatter and heavier than a lighter but still compact it fits perfectly in a pocket, even with other things. Super comfortable to hold, and the central firing button means it’s easy to fire from the front or the back. Battery life is very good for a device so small and charging is super fast.
In the starter kit you get two coils to choose from, a 0.6 sub-Ohm coil for immense flavor and a 1.4 Ohm coil for MTL vaping. SMOK Nord replacement coils are super affordable too, a pack of 5 (at the time of writing) is only $9.99! A generous 3 mL vape juice capacity means you don’t always feel like your refilling it but when you do it’s a hassle-free experience. The pod pops off with a gentle pull and the side fill slot is super easy to refill. For a pod system the flavor is great and if you want to you can chuck some serious clouds.
If you want small and discrete that doesn’t scrimp on performance this is the salt nic device for you. It was only available in 6 original colors, now SMOK has released 7 new resin colorways!
Another best selling Suorin pod system in our online vape shop. About the size of a credit card but thicker the Air V2 is one of the smallest and most discrete salt nic devices. It feels amazing to hold, it’s super lightweight and the stunning beveled edges feel great on your fingers. Manufactured by the same company that makes the Xbox One, PS4 and iPhone the Air has a refined and distinguished feel to it. The battery is 400 mAh which isn’t the biggest but that’s one of the main reasons it’s so small and slim. The vape juice capacity is 2 mL which is plenty for a salt nic device.
This time we’ll start with the customer reviews.
It says a lot when so many people are so happy with a product. Vape juice capacity for such a small vape is an impressive 2 mL and the battery is a decent 450 mAh. Under $20 at the time of writing and the pods cost only $10 for three. So for under $30 you get 5 pods and a small salt nic device you’re going to fall in love with, awesome value. Our customers love it, we love it and you’ll love it too.
Vaporesso Renova Zero
Vaporesso hasn’t stood still while Suorin and SMOK mastered the salt nic pod system. Instead they have created a sub-brand called Renova and they have one mission. Make the perfect Pod System to help people stop smoking. And depending on who you ask they might just have done it. The Zero inherits from Vaporesso a slimmed down version of the excellent OMNI chip that they use in their super advanced mods. Vaporesso fans can be safe in the knowledge their in safe hands. An impressive 650 mAh battery which heats the cCell Coils which are built into the pods. It’s when you get to fill the pods that you meet the innovative (and leakproof) press to fill system. All you need to do in press down with your vape juice bottle which opens a valve the pours in the juice. It looks good, it works good…it’s really really good!
There are more reviews over on the product page and in there they wax lyrical about how good the Renova Zero is. So you don’t need to take our word for it, but we’ll say it anyway. This is one awesome salt nic device.

When it comes to buying the best tank, a variety of factors come into play: affordability, resistance rating, delivery, capacity and more. In the following post, we’ve updated for 2019, we want to tell you everything you need to know, introduce the different options to match with your vape mod, and give you a few of our suggestions for the best vape tanks on the market.
Choosing The Best Vape Tank
Before we get into the good stuff, we need to cover a few basics. What is a vape tank? A tank is the component of the vape that holds the vape juice and contains the heating element. In most cases, tanks are constructed of plastic, pyrex or metal (stainless steel and anodized aluminum) and are screwed into your vape mod.
Cartomizer, Clearomizer, or Glassomizer?
While each of these options have many similarities, there are also many variables that make each of them quite different. Specifically:
- A cartomizer is a tank that has cotton within the tank to absorb e-liquid and make it available to be heated by the coil when the battery is activated.
- A clearomizer has a coil, but instead of using cotton, they have wicks that absorb the e-liquid. Clearomizers generally have reservoirs that hold e-liquid so that vapers only have to refill their e-liquid after several hits.
- A glassomizer is mostly the same as a clearomizer, except that the reservoir is made of pyrex glass and not plastic. Unlike plastic, pyrex glass won’t erode over time as a result of the acidity in the e-liquid.
Pre-Built vs Custom Coil Builds
Coils are housed in the vaping tank. Most of best vape brands offer pre-built coils for their brand’s tanks – making it simple to replace coils by unscrewing the burned-out coil and easily screwing in the new coil. However, some more advanced vapers prefer to self build their coils, and prefer a vape tank with a buildable deck.
Vaping tanks accept coils at specified resistance levels. A lower resistance level often means more vapor production, while a higher resistance level is best for those who prefer a more contained vaping experience. Those who vape at lower wattages are typically comfortable with a higher resistance level, while those who prefer sub-ohm vaping usually use vape coils with a lower resistance rating.
Airflow is an extremely important factor when it comes to choosing the best vape tank. The amount of airflow your vape tank allows can completely change your experience while vaping. Some people prefer a limited airflow that more resembles the experience of smoking, while others enjoy the smooth hit that comes with a maximum level of airflow. Less airflow also means more heat – the more airflow available, the cooler the vape will be.
Best Vape Tanks On The Market Today
Let’s face it. There are so many great vape tanks to buy the market today, it can seem almost impossible to narrow them down. However, our staff members are some of the most knowledgeable vape experts out there, so we asked them to present to us their favorite tanks. Here are the 13 top vape tanks in 2018 that were recommended by the vaping.com staff:
Nicknamed the Cloud Beast, when the TFV12 King tank dropped onto vape store shelves it won many cloud-chasing fans with its unashamed power and innovative coil technology.
With the TFV12 Prince, SMOK has once again revolutionized the sub ohm vape tank – with a stylish new design, a bigger tank and even better coils.
- Convex 8ml bubble tank
- Family of three high-performance coils for intense vapor and flavor production
- Patented locking mechanism for easy refill
The TFV12 Prince is perfect for blowing big clouds of vapor. With its bottom adjusted airflow, the Prince gives you a rich and airy vape – like drawing a milkshake through a thick straw.
SMOK’s family of high-performance Hyper Engine coils are optimized to blow great clouds over a full range of power settings. All the coils have 12 juice holes for enhanced wicking and vapor production.
The Q4 quadruple coil offers the most resistance at 0.4 Ohms, while the sextuple X6 and decuple T10 coils offer super-low resistances of 0.15 Ohms and 0.12 Ohms respectively. The Prince tank also gets the royal seal of approval for taste, but the thing that impresses us most about the Prince is how it balances strong vapor and flavor performance with dashing good looks.
Designed with top of the range 304 stainless steel and borosilicate glass, the convex fishbowl tank is big, bold and beautiful.
The tank is available in a range of metallic colors and each atomizer comes with a smart honeycomb resin drip tip, which also protects your lips.
On top of everything else, the Prince is practical too. The top-fill tank has a patented locking swivel-top, which prevents accidental openings and makes refilling your tank incredibly easy.
The IJOY Katana Sub-ohm Tank utilizes a new design with a modern streamline appearance and a convenient Slide-n-Fill top cap design for easy refilling and to prevent leakage. With the application of 5.5ml e-liquid capacity to provide ample space for liquid storage. Featuring innovative KM1, KM2, KM3 mesh wire coils and natural fiber cotton to enlarge the heating area, and the use of mesh offers greater flavor, bringing you outstanding clouds with long service life, it also carries balanced triangular adjustable bottom airflow system, which is comparable to RDA’s Subohm tank. The IJOY Katana Subohm tank is definitely an irreplaceable vaping component for you. ( Resin and acrylic material versions are available as well!)
A Final Word on Vape Tanks
Of course, just because our staff loves a certain vape tank doesn’t mean it will be totally right for you. To most accurately decide which tank is best vaping tank for you, it’s important to know what type of vaping experience is best for you, and then find a tank that meets those requirements.

# 3 – Aspire Breeze 2
I like a good big cloud vape from my big kits but it’s a bit, shall we say ‘obvious’ when I’m out and about. Kids and some little old ladies are scared of it and ‘pretend’ to splutter and have a fake cough if they’re with 20 meters of me when I blow a cloud. I needed something more discreet but still with the satisfaction of a nice vape. Was there such a thing? I tried a few but they weren’t really what I expected, the best ones were still a bit cumbersome, weren’t really ‘little old lady’ friendly, were heavy(ish), and didn’t fit well into my pocket. Then Aspire launched the Breeze. I went into my local vape store, gave it a try and found exactly what I was looking for, pocketable, satisfying, inexpensive, and best of all – interchangeable coils! I bought it there and then.
I love my little Breeze, it doesn’t scare anyone, is discreet and so easy to use. It seems like years ago that I got it when really, it’s only a short while. It’s a bit scratched and scuffed now but still in use though I’ve gone through a few coils but hey, nothing lasts forever, especially coils.
Then Aspire did it again, launched the Breeze 2, an upgraded version of the original Breeze, I just had to try it, so I did. I bought the red one.
I’ve only had it a short while but goodness I couldn’t believe it was for me, so much better. It now uses a pod system, so much more convenient and the coils are easy to replace, though I’ve not had to change one yet.
The pod system can be refilled just by pressing release buttons on the side and out it pops, turn it upside down remove the stopper and fill. I have the 3ml version, so it lasts almost a full day of ‘stealth’ vaping the battery is also a little bigger, so it will easily go a full day on one charge for me. I also like that they’ve retained a mouthpiece cap.
However, the thing I like best about the new Breeze 2 is the adjustable airflow and with the 0.6ohm coil (there’s also a more mouth to lung 1.0ohm coil which works especially well for Nicotine salt e-liquid) it really does give me a more satisfying vape than my old Breeze (sorry old Breeze but it’s true). I don’t get messy fingers while adjusting it either, just pop off the mouthpiece and adjust to where I need it. I’m also using ‘Nic -salts’ now – is that the right way to say it? I can get higher strength nicotine hit without the harshness on my throat, they weren’t so readily available when I got my first Breeze but with the coils being able to absorb more liquid and the adjustable airflow this new Breeze 2 it now just perfect.
Although my old friend would work just with an inhale, as a vaper of bigger mods generally, I had the habit of just using the fire button on the Breeze. Now, even though the new Breeze 2 doesn’t have the ‘inhale to fire’ mode I don’t miss it in any way. It’s just as easy to use, it fits just as well in my hand an in my pocket so unobtrusively and still doesn’t scare anyone! The finish is a sort of smooth satin type color over an aluminum case the pod itself is see through and easier to see the e-liquid level (easier than the original I might add) and I think I’ll be getting and extra two or three spare pods and could to that I can switch flavors easily – now that is definitely an improvement on the old Breeze!
All in all it’s an awesome little all-in-one device that I will definitely be using for a long time, until of course, Aspire comes out with the Breeze 3 – well maybe, you never know ….
So, thanks Aspire, from all the ‘little old ladies’ and kids … but most of all from me, another awesome product for us stealth vapers, and of course all of those who, like me, turned initially to Aspire, to help them quit smoking.
# 4 – Suorin Drop
Pod-style devices have almost become a dime-a-dozen these days, so when the Suorin Drop dropped (heh) into our laps, the shift from the typical “flash drive” form factor to a more rounded shape was a breath of fresh air. While its definitely not the first device to put a spin on pod or cartridge-based systems, the initial impression the Suorin Drop is giving us look-wise is more than promising. With a 310mAh battery integrated straight into the chassis, the Suorin Drop has definitely piqued our interest.
While it’s definitely not our first time to see a pod-style device assume a similar form factor to what the Suorin Drop is using now (check out the Smok Rolo or Khree UFO), we can’t help but be partial to the neat and streamlined tear-drop design that the Suorin Drop presents.
The main body of the device is constructed out of a glossy plastic and while we really would’ve preferred to see a sort of matte rubberized finish as that would go perfectly with the bright pastel colorways of the Suorin Drop, we don’t mind that much in this case.
One of the biggest departures that sets apart the Suorin Drop from devices such as the Juul is the ability to use your own e-liquids via the refillable cartridges. Constructed out of high-quality food-grade PETG plastics, you won’t have to worry about how well these things can hold your e-liquids without any of the plastic material potentially leeching into your juice.Aside from some minimal branding that can be found on the front of the Suorin Drop, the device looks extremely clean and uncluttered thanks to its button-less draw activated design.
Available in a wide variety of colors ranging from a super bright rainbow chrome to the extremely discreet super stealth black, it’s good to see that Suorin hasn’t cheaped out on possible options. A standard micro USB port can also be found directly underneath the Drop for easy access and convenient charging.
While the convenience of devices such as the Juul can definitely be useful for vapers who truly only want a plug-and-play experience with their devices, its devices such as the Suorin Drop that prove that going the extra mile by taking the time to purchase e-liquids separately can lead to a much more enjoyable vaping experience.
Thanks to the cartridges used by the Suorin Drop being capable of being refilled, we didn’t feel limited at all by the pre-determined flavor selection that most closed pod systems like the Juul use.
Another big pro to this is the ability to select your own desired strength quickly and easily. There were times that we felt that the fixed 50mg/ml strength that came with the Juul Pods were simply too much too handle, so being able to dial that down by using our own e-liquids with the Suorin Drop gave us a much more relaxed yet still satisfying vaping experience.
Airflow was sufficiently smooth while still offering a bit of restriction for that bonafide mouth to lung feel when taking a puff. Vapor and flavor production is on point as well with cloud production being above average for a small form factor device and we never felt that flavors tasted muted in any way when vaping on the Suorin Drop.
Granted, the Suorin Drop doesn’t have anything going for it in the power department with its unadjustable fixed output, but the same can be said for every other pod or cartridge style device in the market anyway.
We thought it would have been nice however if Suorin also offered a small range of cartridges with varying resistances for vapers who want to experiment with ohm ratings for more or less vapor production, but that would also potentially complicate purchasing decisions for absolute beginners which defeats the purpose of this type of device.
Nevertheless, having the option to use your own choice of e-liquid is always nice, especially when that allows you to adjust strength levels to your liking.
Ease of Use
It’s as easy as it comes when setting up and using the Suorin Drop, even for the utmost neophyte to the world of vaping. Simply charge up the device via the micro USB port and included charging cable and an LED light will indicate when the device has already been fully charged.
To fill the cartridge with your desired e-liquid, pull the cartridge off the main body and check underneath for two silicone seals blocking the fill ports. The fill ports are large enough to accommodate 99% of gorilla bottles used to store e-liquids so you shouldn’t have any problem jamming your favorite e-liquid in there.
Each cartridge holds up to 2ml of e-liquid and while the PETG plastic used is slightly tinted, we had no issues seeing into the cartridge to properly gauge how full or empty they were when filling or vaping. The Suorin Drop uses a draw/air-activated sensor to detect when you’re taking a puff, completely eliminating the need for buttons on the device and resulting in a very low learning curve, even for the non-tech savvy.
The Suorin Drop isn’t much larger than your average car’s key FOB so you shouldn’t have any problems palming the device for a discreet vape session. The Drop is also easily pocketable for maximum portability although we wouldn’t recommend keeping the Drop alongside any metal or sharp objects in the same pocket as that would inevitably result in your Drop getting scratched up.
Battery life is more than satisfactory thanks to the integrated 310mAh battery being capable of supplying a day’s worth of vaping, even with frequent use. While the Suorin Drop doesn’t support swappable or replaceable batteries (at least not without disassembling the device which we don’t recommend if you’re not sure what you’re doing), it can still be easily charged when on the go via any powered USB source and the included micro USB charging cable.
If you’ve always been curious about vaping but found the costs of typical go-to devices such as the Juul too prohibitive especially when it came to the disposable flavor pods, the Suorin Drop is a great alternative that lets you purchase your own flavors at a fraction of the cost.
Toss in its reliable vaping performance and strong vapor and flavor output, and the Suorin Drop just might be another contender for your first (or even next) starter kit.
Start vaping in 5 easy steps
If you’re looking to quit smoking, vaping the right device with the right vape juice can provide you with the same kind of satisfaction as cigarettes. The added benefit is a seriously wide range of flavors to choose. But, even though the vape kits on the market have significantly improved over the years and make it simpler for a smoker to switch, there is still a learning process that new vapers need to go through to get the best out of their gear when they first start vaping.
So we decided to help: here’s how a smoker can switch to vaping in five easy steps.
- Pick your experience
Before buying, think about exactly what it is you like about smoking and how that might affect your choice of vape? Vaping is supposed to be enjoyable and give you satisfaction in the same way smoking does, and it is so versatile that you can have lots of different experiences with the various combinations of vape kits and vape juice. Here are four questions we think you should ask yourself before choosing your gear:
- Do you crave the kind of satisfaction nicotine gives you and want an experience that has a punchy hit?
- Or do you prefer the sensory aspects of smoking – perhaps you smoke menthols or flavored cigars – and you’d like something that caters to this desire?
- Are big clouds more important to you or would you rather be more discreet when you vape?
- Do you want a big device that makes an impression when you show it to people or would you prefer something smaller and more pocket-friendly?
Once you’ve thought about and answered these you’re ready to go shopping!
- Pick your device
So you’ve decided what kind of vaper you’d like to be. Before thinking about flavors, you should look through our selection of complete kits and determine what kind of device fits you best.
If you’re after that big satisfying nicotine hit, we recommend you go for something that uses a heating element (known as a coil or a wick) with a high level of resistance (we’ll talk about what this means in the accessories section).
With these devices – which are less power hungry – you’ll be able to use vape juice with a high nicotine content (we’ll talk about what constitutes “high” in the next section). These devices are often (but not always) smaller and more discreet, and because they are less power hungry the batteries tend to last longer. You’ll still get a decent amount of vapor from them, but they won’t produce the enormous clouds you can get from bigger more powerful vapes. They are an excellent choice for situations where you’d rather vape discreetly and without everyone noticing.
However, if you want more substantial performance:
But if what you want is big clouds you should select a device with a coil or wick that has a low resistance. These kinds of devices are more power hungry, meaning that they are often larger so as to cater for the need for bigger batteries.
The tank – or the reservoir where the liquid is heated – also tends to be larger. That’s because coils with lower resistance will vaporize more juice per puff. And that means more vapor volume and big clouds!
You want more vapor and big clouds?
Look no further than these cutting edge starter kits:
- Pick your vape juice
Vape juice – otherwise known as e-juice, eliquid, juice and all sorts of other things – is essentially a liquid that consists of a “humectant” (either propylene glycol or vegetable glycerine – this is what creates the vapor when you exhale), some nicotine, and flavorings. You put it in your vape, according to the instructions and you vape it. Simple, really!
Buying vape juice for the first time can be a little intimidating, with so many to choose from and a dizzying array of brands. But when it comes to the crunch there are only really two decisions you need to make: how much nicotine do you want and what kind of flavors do you enjoy?
Let’s start with the first question. If you’ve chosen a large device with a low resistance coil and higher power so you can impress your friends with some epic clouds, you’ll need to go easy on the nicotine content. That’s because you’ll be inhaling a larger volume of vapor each time you take a hit.

However, more vapor volume means you’ll get more nicotine per inhalation than if you used a low-powered device. Most vapers who use higher powered devices tend towards nicotine levels of 1.5 mg/ml, 3mg/ml or 6mg/ml (milligrams of nicotine per milliliter of liquid).
There’s no exact science on this – you’ll figure out pretty quickly how you like to vape.
Here are some of our favorite vape juice flavors;
If you’ve chosen a kit with a higher resistance coil and lower power, you might want a higher nicotine content. Vaping this way will give you a more intense nicotine experience because the concentration will be higher. You’ll still get a great vape using juice with lower nicotine content, but for a more intense feeling of satisfaction, you should use 12mg/ml or above. You can’t use this juice in high-powered devices because the resulting flavor and sensation would be harsh (possibly very harsh!).
If you’re just transitioning from smoking, we recommend selecting a liquid with a little more nicotine – perhaps 12mg/ml or 18mg/ml.
And for the committed smoker, or for people who’ve tried vaping before but found it didn’t satisfy, we recommend nicotine salts. Salts are the latest generation of vape juice and they use a slightly different form of nicotine. Vape juice containing nicotine salts gives a more intense, cigarette-like satisfaction.
Here are some of our favorite vape juice nic salts;
Another benefit of salts is that the liquids are formulated to be much less harsh on your throat, meaning that you can use higher nicotine concentrations. 30mg/ml, 40mg/ml or even 50mg/ml are not uncommon. In fact, one member of our team swears by 40mg/ml nicotine salts in a low powered device; he has been vaping for almost 4 years!
Your last decision is flavor, and this really is an individual choice – we make it easy by listing the vape juice we stock by flavor profile. We recommend that when starting out you try a few different flavors in two different strengths (depending on your device). This way you can find the combination that’s right for you. We have put together a list of 10 cheap e liquids in various flavors to make it easy to start out.
- Get the right parts
To make the most of your new device there are two key spare parts you’ll need to have on hand: coils and batteries – although you’ll only need be able to get spare batteries for devices where the batteries are replaceable.
Coils are the most important, and these apply to any kind of device. These small heating elements are included in every device; they are inside the tank and you need to replace them regularly per your device’s instructions. Coils wear out over time: the constant process of heating and cooling leads to the vapor developing a bitter taste. When your juice doesn’t taste quite as good as it normally does, that means it’s time to buy a replacement coil; for many vapers this is about once per week.

We recommend you get spares with your first device so you always have them on hand when you need them. You’ll need to get the coil that is compatible with your device. The vaping.com vape shop listings tell you which coils are compatible with that device.
If you’ve got a device that allows you to change the actual battery, we also recommend getting a few spares. Always make sure to store these batteries safely! Accidents can happen when they are mishandled or mischarged (see our guide on battery safety for more information on this). If your device has a built-in battery you might want to think about getting a backup; the good news is that devices with built-in batteries tend to be cheaper than those where they can be switched out.
- Read the instructions and vape
It may seem like an obvious point, but make sure you read the instructions that come with your device. This makes sure you complete the initial steps so that your first vape gives you the satisfaction you’re looking for.
After filling, don’t vape it straight away; leave it for five minutes to make sure the coil is completely covered in liquid. This means you’ll avoid a dry hit, which will give you bad flavor and likely ruin your coil.
Once you’ve done all of that you’re ready to start vaping. Within a few days we’re sure you’ll enjoy being a vaper a lot more than you enjoyed being a smoker…
Sub-Ohm Vaping [Guide]
Sub-Ohm Vape Guide: 2019 Update
As vaping has increased around the world, innovation has pushed vape mods from small low-powered cig-style devices to high power sub ohm devices. It’s not new for vapers to want to push the limits, and sub-ohm vaping allows them to do just that. If you’re not familiar with sub-ohm vaping, you’re in luck – we wrote this sub ohm vaping guide to teach you everything that you need to know!
Ohms and Ohm’s Law
Before we get to all the cool vaping stuff, we first have to cover some scientific basics. An “ohm” is a unit of resistance. Ohm’s Law states that there is a relationship between voltage, current and resistance. More specifically, Voltage = Current / Resistance or V = I/R. How does that relate to vaping? Basically, by decreasing the resistance (ohms) of your atomizer, more electricity will flow through it, changing the overall vape experience.
What is Sub Ohm Vaping?
In it’s most simple definition, sub ohm vaping means vaping with a coil that has resistance under one ohm. Conversely, vaping with a coil that has a resistance over one ohm is considered above ohm vaping.
In its infancy, sub ohm vaping was mostly explored by vaping veterans who built their own coils and constructed their own devices. They figured out through Ohm’s Law that their mods could produce far more wattage and power if they lowered the circuit’s resistance (ohms). By using a rebuildable atomizer and building their own coils, they were able to blow bigger clouds and intensify their vape experience. These were the first sub ohm coils and sub-ohm atomizers.
Today however, the market is very different. The popularity of sub ohm vaping has resulted in an explosion of new commercially produced and regulated sub ohm devices and sub-ohm vaping kits in the vape market. Sub ohm vaping is no longer reserved just for experts, but is available to everyone through safe devices with advanced vaping technology and eliminating the need for sub ohm coil builds for most consumers. On average, commercial units range between 10 watts and 300 watts, although at least 30 watts is typically needed to sustain a resistance under an ohm.
Sub Ohm Vaping vs Regular Vaping
The main difference between sub ohm vaping and regular (above ohm) vaping is whether or not the atomizer’s resistance is above or below one ohm. However, in terms of the vaper’s experience, there are three major differences that come from the increased power of a sub-ohm device. These three differences and reasons why sub ohm vaping is popular include:
- Bigger Clouds: If more power means one thing for vapers, it means bigger and more vibrant clouds. For cloud chasers, and those who just prefer more vape on each hit, the performance of a sub ohm device far exceeds the performance of an above ohm device.
- More Flavor: More vape means more flavor. Since sub ohm vaping uses more vape juice than vaping at a higher resistance, sub ohm vapers are able to maximize the flavor on each and every pull.
- Warmer Vape: Sub ohm vaping means more power, and as a result, the vapor will typically be warmer than an above ohm experience. Commercial devices and tanks usually have ample airflow to ensure that the vape is not hot enough to cause discomfort, but instead, enough to make sure that each hit is warm and smooth on your throat.
Three Ways to Sub Ohm Vape
For those who choose to sub-ohm vape, an atomizer with a resistance under an ohm will be necessary. If you are trying to figure out how to sub ohm vape, there are three options available:
- Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers (RDAs): In the beginning, if you wanted to sub ohm vape, a rebuildable dripping atomizer would have been your only choice. These atomizers allow vapers to build their own coil and wrap their own cotton. Instead of a tank, users would simply drip e-liquid onto the wick.
- Rebuildable Tank Atomizers (RTAs): RTAs are similar to RDAs in that they allow individuals to build and customize their own coils, but the coils are built within a tank so that dripping is no longer a requirement. Instead, e-juice is held in a small tank that gives a much longer vaping experience between juice refills.
- Sub Ohm Tanks: Commercial tanks make sub ohm vaping very easy. Since commercial coils are ‘ready-to-go’, vapers don’t have to build them or maintain them. Instead of screwing in a coil and wicking cotton through it, users can simply spin a commercial coil into the tank, fill the tank with e-liquid, and begin vaping immediately.

Are Nicotine Salts Safe?
Nicotine salts aren’t new, but in the last several years, popularity and usage has spiked within the vaping industry. For most, learning about nicotine salts for the first time can bring on many questions – Are nicotine salts safe? Are they dangerous? Those who are new to vaping can become especially confused with the vast number of new terms that they are introduced to. First they had to figure out what type of vape juice they like, which nicotine strength suits them the best, and what VG/PG ratio they enjoy vaping at. Then they jump on a forum and are introduced to the concept of “nicotine salts” and their journey for information starts all over.
Let’s face it, nobody wants to research for hours – we just want the answers to our questions so we can vape the way we want to as quickly as possible! In this post, we’re going to provide everything you need to know about nicotine salt e liquid and help you figure out what the hype is all about!
The safety of vaping in general has always been a topic of debate between doctors, federal organizations, vaping advocates and other involved entities. In comparison to regular e-liquids however, nicotine salts are typically deemed to be just as safe.
Although nicotine salts themselves are comparable in safety to freebase nicotine, there is one thing that must be considered. Nicotine salts aren’t as easy to integrate into vape juice as freebase nicotine, so benzoic acid is often added into the composition. Toxicology reports have not found any danger regarding inhalation or vaping benzoic acid, but there have only been very few studies performed that relate to long-term use.
Whether it’s nicotine salts or freebase nicotine, whether benzoic acid added or not, it is becoming more generally accepted that vaping is considerably less dangerous than smoking. A recent report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine concluded that, “substituting e-cigarettes for combustible tobacco cigarettes reduces users’ exposure to numerous toxicants and carcinogens present in combustible tobacco cigarettes.
What are nicotine salts?
Without getting too scientific, salt-based nicotine is a form of nicotine that is naturally occurring in tobacco leaves. In conventional e liquids, manufacturers often add “freebase” nicotine, which is considered to be the purest form of isolated nicotine. Nicotine salts on the other hand, are not limited to only nicotine – they also contain other organic compounds that are found naturally in the leaves of the tobacco plant. As a result, their molecular makeup is more stable. For users who don’t feel that their craving has been satisfied after vaping normal e-liquids, nicotine salts provide other compounds that allow the vaper to enjoy a vaping experience that more closely replicates smoking tobacco.
Simply put, freebase is isolated by removing protons from the nicotine, while nic salts provide nicotine in an unaltered state.
Traditional e-liquid or nicotine salt vape juice?
Salt nic juice isn’t for everyone, but they offer a very specific vaping solution that can benefit many vapers; especially those who are recent former smokers. Some people enjoy using powerful devices, producing huge amounts of vapor and blowing huge clouds; and for these vapers, traditional vape juice provides the solution. Compared to nicotine salt ejuice, traditional e-liquids have the following benefits:
- Availability: Nicotine salts are only recently gaining steam in the vaping world. As a result, many places that carry conventional e-liquids don’t yet carry nicotine salts; and if they do, it’s likely offered in an extremely limited supply.
- More flavors: There are thousands and thousands of e-juice flavors on the market today, but since nicotine salts are less popular, their flavor options are limited. If someone runs out of salt ejuice, it may be difficult to immediately replace it; whereas traditional e-liquid can be easily obtained in most regions around the world.
- Device compatibility: Traditional e-liquids are generally fit for usage in any device. Those who love huge vapor production can use a freebase nicotine based solution to blow humongous clouds without irritation to the throat. Salt based e liquid on the other hand, is made for usage with low-wattage devices; delivering a high dosage of nicotine without needing to use a high wattage device.
- Less nicotine: For some vapers, the biggest benefit of traditional e-liquids is that they have less nicotine. Individuals looking to cut down to zero-nicotine vaping for instance, would not be interested in the high nicotine levels offered in nicotine salts. However, this is only a benefit for a select group of vapers since not every vaper shares the same vaping goal.
There are some vapers however, who only have one goal – to satisfy their nicotine craving. This is especially true for those who formally smoked and have now switched to vaping. For these individuals, nicotine salt e liquid provides many benefits over traditional e-liquids:
- Higher Nicotine Levels: If nicotine delivery is your vaping goal, nic salts allow you to vape with higher nicotine levels up to 50 mg. Readily available traditional e-liquids on the other hand usually max out at around 12 mg, limiting the level of nicotine delivery. Individuals who are transitioning from smoking to vaping often find the higher nicotine levels of salt vape juice to be more satisfying.
- Smoother Hit: Those who prefer vaping at higher nicotine levels typically prefer nicotine salts since they are much smoother than traditional e-liquids (at the same nicotine level). Vaping freebase nicotine liquids at high levels often lead to an overbearing and unpleasant harshness that may ruin the vaping experience. Since nicotine salts vape smooth with less bite, vapers with a preference for higher levels find that salts are much more satisfying.
- More Flavor: E liquid flavors can be heavily affected by the taste of freebase nicotine. Nicotine salts on the other hand, allow vapers to enjoy a better flavor profile that is more accurate to what the manufacturer intended.
- Use Less Liquid: Nicotine salts are intended for use in low-wattage devices. Due to their biochemistry, these salts tend to leave vapers more satisfied and for a longer period. Those who use nicotine salts tend to vape less, and as a result, they save money because their e-juice bottles last much longer!
The vaping.com’s Top 5 Nicotine Salt E-Liquid Flavors
Nicotine salts are still gaining steam and many e-liquid manufacturers are still working to produce their flagship nicotine salt flavors. However, there are still many awesome nicotine salts flavors on the market, produced by some of the top e-liquid brands in the world. Here’s five of our favorites!
The Naked 100 vape juice brand is known for producing a wide variety of amazing and popular vape juice flavors, and this same level of excellence has been spread to their new line of nicotinesalt e liquids. Really Berry is an incredible blend of fresh blueberries and blackberries with a sweet and slightly tart hint of lemon. All of this, along with a smooth throat-hit that nicotine salts are best known for. Really Berry is available in nicotine levels of 35 and 50mg, and has a PG/VG level of 50/50.
I will be honest. I was not as excited about this flavor, since I don’t care for blackberry e-liquids. The last one I tried had a strange bitterness to it. Boy, was I mistaken! Blackberry can be hit or miss, but they hit it out of the park. On the inhale, I get a sweet, blackberry-jam flavor. On the exhale, I’m still tasting jam, but accompanied by a dessert-like crumble flavor. It’s not spicy like the Apple Pie one, but it still has a rich, savory note to it. The closest comparison I could make is to Jam Monster, but Dinner Lady does it in their own style. If you enjoy fresh blackberries, this one is gonna be your jam.
If the rich flavor of cured tobacco continues to haunt your palate, SaltNic Dry Tobacco e-Liquid VGOD is guaranteed to take care of those cravings as soon as the vapor hits your tongue. This nicotine salt flavor delivers nothing but that delicious tobacco taste that you know and love.

The Ugly Truth About Clone Vape Mods
Clone Vape Mods: Deal or Disaster?
Knock-off products are nothing new; Purses or shoes that look identical to the real thing, with a much lower price tag, of course. You can’t fault people for buying them. Sometimes they’re even great for a laugh. But, what about clone vape mods? Are these drastically cheaper kits a great deal? Or, is there something far more insidious going on?
What Are Clone Vape Mods?
Clone vape mods are, as the name suggests, clones of another vape mod. These are often identical to a brand name mod, and nearly impossible to tell apart at a glance.
Despite them looking identical to a brand name mod, clone vape mods are also much cheaper than their name brand counterpart. If they look the same and function the same, you’re probably curious is there’s a catch.
There is. And it’s a big one.
The Truth About Clone Vape Mods
In short, clone vape mods are cheap. They’re cheap in price, cheap in build quality, and the materials are cheap.
Is this necessarily a bad thing? Yes, yes, and yes.
When compared to other industries, vaping is still in its infancy. It’s only recently started to get a ton of mainstream coverage, both good and bad. Due to the newness and fragility of the industry, there are numerous reasons you should avoid clone vape mods.
Cheaper Materials and Poor Build Quality
When you’re buying a real name brand vape mod, you’re getting something that’s been carefully engineered and designed using top-notch materials. A counterfeit or clone vape mod will look identical to the real thing, but a closer look will reveal cheap materials.
This even goes down to the battery. Vape kits and e-cigarettes use lithium-ion batteries, which can degrade over time. Even the most well-made lithium-ion batteries will degrade over time. A clone vape mod will likely be using a low-grade battery, meaning it will degrade faster and pose a greater risk to your safety.
There’s also little quality control where clone vape mods are concerned. Any reputable name brand will have a QC department that ensures every product meets regulations and passes their safety tests. The makers of a clone vape mod may or may not be testing their products. That’s the problem: there’s no standard.
They’re Not Required to be Regulated
If you’re buying from a reputable brand a reputable shop, vape mods and kits are likely regulated. These safety features that can prevent overcharging, prevent any kind of malfunction and keep you safer.
A clone vape mod manufacturer has no requirement to include these safety features. Why? They’re not regulated. This isn’t to say every single clone device or mod will be lacking all safety features, but there’s also no guarantee they’ll have them either.
Even worse, many sites that sell clone vape mods and kits have very lackluster descriptions of the build, materials, and specifications. It is very much a “you get what you pay for” situation.
With vape explosions getting media attention anytime they occur and vaping under increasing scrutiny, it pays to buy from reputable brands that follow safety standards and regulations. There are even lawsuits forming over faulty batteries. Buying from reputable brands can reduce the likelihood you fall victim and help build vaping’s reputation.
You’re Hurting the Big Brands
When you’re buying a clone device, you’re buying an imitation of the hard work put in by a big brand. These big brands spend millions in R&D and research to ensure they release quality vape kits. When you buy a box mod clone or vape kit imitation, you’re ultimately hurting the large brands that built the source mod.
Not to sound dramatic, but if everyone bought clone mods, the big brands would tank and there’d be nobody left to design the quality mods that the clones are based on. It’s simply not a sustainable model and it’s a disservice to the reputable brands.
Avoiding Clone Vape Mods
Clone vape mods and box mod clones may be difficult to spot, but avoiding them is definitely doable.
Avoid eBay, Craigslist, and Swap Sites
Just like the low price of a clone mod, the low price of a device on eBay or a swap site can be really tempting. There are plenty of genuine sellers on eBay, Craigslist, and the like, but if you want to be certain you’re not accidentally buying a clone it’s best to avoid purchasing from an unverified third-party.
This is especially true with eBay, where many clone manufacturers from China sell their mods en masse. Again, these can be lacking in safety features and are not regulated.
Don’t Buy Atomizers or Mods from Vape Shops Unless Certified
Similar to the eBay situation, many vape shops carry mods and atomizers at unbelievably low prices. Sometimes these are legit, but oftentimes these are clones that they’ve purchased in bulk online to sell in their store.
If you want to purchase an atomizer or mod from a local shop, ask if they’re a certified reseller of that brand first. It is possible for shops to become certified as official merchants for different brands, in which case they’re legit.
Buy from Reputable Sellers
Like the previous point, make sure you’re always buying from a reputable seller. Do your homework and find sites that have a partnership with a brand or at the very least offer a quality guarantee and return policy.
If a site is incredibly transparent about their products, allows for customer interaction and feedback, and has a solid reputation, you’re probably in good hands.
You Get What You Pay For
At the end of the day, we can’t make you buy the real deal. You get what you pay for, and there’s always going to be a market for clone mods.
Buying a brand name mod from a reputable seller like SMOK, Eleaf or VooPoo is the only way to know you’re getting an authentic product. It’s also the only way you can find something that’s been certified and follows regulations. The vaping industry is always under pressure and scrutiny by critics, so why risk the reputation of this hobby we all love and buy a clone?
