New to Vaping? Vaporz Vape Shop has the perfect guide for you!
The history of vaping

Electronic cigarettes are a relatively new invention. For the past 100 years, there has not been an effective alternative to cigarettes...until now.


In 2003, Chinese pharmacist, Hon Lik, developed the first electronic cigarette. This technology wasn't introduced to the United States and Europe until 2006. Since then, the market has been growing at an exponential rate. At Vaporz Vape Shop, we love the use of this smoke free technology. The electronic cigarette produces vape, not smoke. It's really cool technology! Original devices looked very similar to standard cigarettes, but today, you have many more choices that offer a much improved experience.


How does it all work?

Vaping is easy. Simply place your lips on the tip, inhale, then exhale. Most personal vaporizers require you to press a button while inhaling, while there are some activated by inhaling. Either way, using a vaporizer is quite simple.


Once you fill your clearomizer or tank with e-liquid and charge your battery, you're ready to go.


There are several types of devices that offer a wonderful vaping experience. It's really not that complicated, however, you will undoubtedly have questions. With that in mind, we encourage you to contact us. We are passionate about this industry and truly enjoy helping our customers enhance their vaping experience.


Whatever your preference, there's an e-cig out there for you. If you're not quite sure which device to choose, give us a call, and we'd be happy to work with you. Just tell us a bit about your smoking habits as well as what you look for in a device, and we'll have you vaping in no time.


Advantages of vaping

Personal vaporizers contain state of the art technology which give the sensation of smoking without the impediments of tobacco, fire, tar, carbon monoxide, smell and more. While vaping, you don't have to worry about second hand smoke - mainly because, well, there is none! In addition, this technology doesn't contain all the chemicals which stain your teeth and cause bad breath. There is no lingering odor either. Want to vape? No problem, you don't need to go outside. You can do it from your couch or while watching a movie.


After your initial hardware purchase, vaping is generally 50 to 70 percent less expensive compared to traditional analog cigarettes. Traditional cigarettes contain 4000+ chemicals. When you vape, you only consume about 4 to 5 ingredients. Most importantly, the taste is fantastic. There are countless flavors available. We have everything from your traditional tobacco flavors to dessert and fruit flavors.


Components It starts with the battery

Think of the battery as the engine. Just the way a car will not start without an engine, a personal vaporizer will not function without a lithium-ion rechargeable battery. The battery is the largest part of your device and is generally encased in a housing. Some batteries can't be removed but can still be recharged. When the battery finally dies for good, the device must be disposed of. Batteries used to power "PV's/Mods" are replaceable. When your battery goes bad, you can simply replace it with a new rechargeable battery.


cartomizers and tanks

There is a variety of cartomizers, clearomizers and tanks available for vaping. It may seem overwhelming, but they all do basically the same thing. You simply fill the reservoir up with e-liquid and screw it to your battery. There's a coil inside that will heat up when you press the button. The hot coil turns the e-liquid to vapor which then allows you to take a draw.



There are different names and numbers that refer to the threading of attachments. If you are unsure if two items are compatible, don't hesitate to give us a call!


Drip Tip

A drip tip is a mouth piece accessory that sits on the top of your atomizer or cartomizer. The drip tip serves two distinct purposes. First and foremost, they allow you to easily drip additional e-liquid into your atty or cartomizer without taking off the mouthpiece. In addition, many people use them because they can add some style to their device.

what is e-liquid?

Many of our customers ask about the ingredients in e-liquid. We encourage you to read the label, but here's a general breakdown.


E-liquid is the solution that produces the vapor. It's available in a large variety of flavors. E-liquid is made from several food-grade ingredients. Vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, and natural flavoring are the three main components. Nicotine is an optional ingredient which may be added to aid with the sensational of smoking. The addition of nicotine can help alleviate your craving to smoke.

What is pg/vg?

Propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin are the base ingredients of any e-liquid. PG/VG is the ratio of propylene glycol to vegetable glycerin in the mixture. PG is always first, VG the second: 70/30 = 70% PG and 30% VG. 100% PG e-liquid will produce very little vapor. PG will produce more throat hit, carry flavor through better, and is thinner. PG doesn't make the vapor though. VG is really thick and generates the major vapor and can decrease the throat hit. We have found that the most popular blend is a 70/30 mix.



Generally speaking, about 10 to 15 percent of your e-liquid consists of food grade flavorings. These flavorings are commonly used for baking and candy making.


nicotine content

Some of you have experience with stick style e-cigarettes that look like real cigarettes. The nicotine content is sometimes indicated as a percentage instead of in milligrams per millimeter. To find your strength, move the decimal to the right one place, and that is the mg/ml you've been using. 0.8% = 8 mg/ml, 1.2% = 12mg/ml, 2.4% = 24 mg/ml. We provide an estimate of suggested strength based on cigarette usage below. This is only an estimate and is intended to help you choose a strength to start.


what nicotine strength should i get?

The nicotine strength you select is entirely up to you. We encourage you to experiment. However, the list below will get you off on the right track.


0 MG - Freedom from nicotine. Great taste, but no nicotine.

8 MG - Light. Similar to an ultra light to light cigarette.

18 MG - Regular strength. Most popular for regular smokers.

24 MG - Extra high nicotine. Similar to an unfiltered or very strong cigarette.

Recap - reasons to vape?

Customers often tell us that they prefer vaping over smoking. Here's some reasons why.


Vaping is more affordable. Generally speaking, vaping can be 50 to 70 percent less as compared to traditional analog cigarettes.


The FDA currently does not allow us to make claims that our products are healthier than traditional cigarettes. We recommend that you do your own research on electronic cigarettes and use your own judgement. At the end of the day, you are only consuming 4 to 5 ingredients with electronic cigarettes instead of 4000+ known chemicals contained in traditional cigarettes. You do the math.


Vaping tastes so much better! With the tireless efforts of engineers and developers, electronic cigarettes now produce astonishingly realistic and an arguably better taste than traditional cigarettes. There is a large spectrum of flavors available that provides consumers with a completely unique and unparalleled vaping experience that traditional cigarettes will never be able to offer.


You can vape almost anywhere. Unlike traditional cigarettes that leave an offensive odor.

We at Vaporz vape shop hope you have a wonderful vaping experience!
