Vaping 101

The decision to start vaping is a great one. But, there are some things you should know before you enter a vape shop. So, here are some basic A to Z, head to toe facts a newbie should know. We here are Luxor Vapors have taken the initiative to help our new friends understand, learn, and comprehend with some ease. First off, it is important for you to understand the technical jargon. Here are a few words:

  • Analog:a slang term for an ordinary tobacco cigarette. The implication is that as the electronic version is the e-cig and that the analog version is the cigarette.
  • Atomizer/RDA (Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer):also known as an “atty,” it consists of the heating coil, bridge, threaded connection (where it attaches to the mod), air holes and an open end through which you inhale.
  • Cigalike: the e-cigs that you can pick up from most convenience stores. Typically, they’re disposable and resemble a traditional cigarette.
  • Clearomizer:also known as a “tank.” A popular trend in vaping at the moment, with the improvements that have recently been made. It is a tube-like cartridge that holds e-liquid. Generally, they hold 1.7 ml to 3 ml of e-liquid at a time, which is great for vaping on the go, as you don’t have to worry about constantly dripping.
  • Dripping:the act of adding e-liquid to the cotton of a rebuildable. Dripping requires a lot more effort, as you typically get a handful of hits before needing to drip again. It is never recommended that you drip and drive.
  • Mod/APV (Advanced Personal Vaporizer):APVs are available in two main formats –  box mods, resembling a cigarette pack with a mouthpiece attached, and tube mods, and the vape pen, which is a small, thin, pen-shaped battery that attaches to a small tank and operates by the press of a button.

 Some advice for our newbies:

  • Be aware of pricing trends.
  • You will have to spend money initially to understand what works for you.
  • Buy plenty of extra coil heads.
  • Have backup batteries.
  • Have a good smart charger.
  • Have a proper travel case.
  • Sample all the flavors until you know what you like best.
  • Educate yourself on the products before you invest.
  • If you are going cold turkey, this is a great way to supplement!
  • The best investment you will make is a great tank and mod.
  • Before you travel, know the countries rules on vaping. Many cities, and even countries have different regulations on what you can and cannot smoke.
  • Be patient when you start.

Vaping comes in variable voltages, mods, and prices. We recommend that you start with a basic vape pen with a sample battery and tank, they are usually around $20, and a great way to understand what you like and don’t like. Lastly, we would like to warn our newbies about dry hits that happen when the coil has reached the end of its life. This can also mean you are out of juice, so have an understanding of the longevity of your gear.
