Happy Earth Day Vapers!

Happy Earth Day Vapers!Did you know that cigarette butts are the single most littered item in the U.S.? Not only that, but it takes 12 years for a cigarette butt to break down. Twelve years! Switching to electronic cigarettes makes sense for so many reasons. You feel better, smell better, save time, and save money. Plus, just by switching from smoking to vaping you are doing a huge part in helping to combat pollution. Most e-cigarette batteries can be recharged (aside from disposables) and at their end of their life, can be recycled. Since it’s Earth Day, we’re giving you some tips on how vapers can even go one step further in helping the environment.  Continue reading

Odd mods: 5 strangest modified e cigs

Steampunk mod

Steampunk mod seen at VapeBash 3

There are some pretty damn crazy, I mean CRAZY mods out there. If you think all ecigs look alike, you my friend are in for a big surprise. People have been modding their electronic cigarettes since the devices were invented. There are ecigs made of Altoids tins, Nintendo controllers and Atari joysticks. One company has even made vaporizers out of energy and pop cans. They have glass straws that serve as a drip tip. There are ecig mods made of all kinds of old school tobacco pipes. Here are the 5 strangest ecig mods out there.

VapeBash 3: Chicago’s e-cigarette convention

Crowd from the first VapeBash

Crowd from the first VapeBash

It’s almost time for VapeBash‘s third annual vape meet! This Friday and Saturday, April 11-12, VapeBash will take over the Westin O’Hare in Rosemont, Illinois. The Windy City Vapers Club produces this event every year to celebrate all things vaping. This event is super fun. If you discuss e-cigs on ECF, other forums, and in Facebook groups, it’s really fun to meet the people in real life (IRL) who you only know online. At the first VapeBash I met a lot of customers who I’d talked to on ECF, but never actually met in person.

What you need to know about electronic cigarettes

Today an old friend from high school posted about ecigs on her Facebook Wall. Working for Vapor4Life I forget that there’s a lot of people who still don’t really understand vaping. I was happy to see that one of her friends who vape commented “How fast are they supposed to kill you? I’ve been using one every day for the past 2 years.”

WOW Vapor King Disposable technical info and review

This is a guest blog post by Morandir. I’ve always been a bit torn on disposables. Reason behind that is of course the waste factor. I know too many people who buy them and throw them away like they’re regular trash afterwards. Disposable electronic cigarettes have a place though. If you haven’t vaped before and are looking to switch it’s a far cheaper alternative to getting a full starter kit, and with established vapers they make a great emergency back up (keep one in my car at all times for that very reason).

If your batt isn’t working, there are a few things you should try doing before throwing your hands up in frustration. Here’s a checklist for you:

Do more smokers switch to ecigs, or begin smoking and vaping?

Have you heard the term “dual use?” This refers to people who smoke cigarettes AND vape electronic cigarettes.

People wonder if e-cigs are an effective smoking cessation tool. Now as an ecig manufacturer and retailer, we can’t say that they are. If we were to say that, we’d have to be regulated as a drug under the FDA. Our products are an alternative to smoking, but we don’t say “they will help you quit smoking.” We leave that to the customers to find out for themselves.

WOW Vapor Smilin Tobacco and Menthol e-liquid review

This is a guest blog post by Morandir.

Vapor4Life recently released two new flavors – WOW Vapor Smilin Tobacco and Smilin Tobacco Menthol. The flavor is available in both 30ml bottles and cartomizers. I’ve been testing both new juices pretty heavily the past few weeks on a number of different set ups. I wanted to be as thorough as possible (no surprise for those who are used to my reviews).
