  • How to Clean Your Vape Gear

    Beyond quality products and premium ingredients, the key to the best vaping experience is keeping your vape gear clean and in good condition. Vapage® is committed to keeping our customers in the know about best practices, and how to clean vape gear is an important part of vaping. In pursuit of improving the vaping experience, we also want to raise awareness about product care and maintenance. Keep reading to learn methods for cleaning and keeping your vape gear in functional condition for years to come.

    Although vape gear is designed to withstand the wear and tear of daily use, every part is meant to be cleaned. Most mods and vaporizers come with clear tanks so the user can clearly see how much e-liquid remains. However, e-juice is made from a wide variety of ingredients and can begin to stain or fog up the tank’s interior. Atomizers clearomizers are other crucial examples of why vape gear needs to be cleaned regularly. To remove any sticky residue caused by crystallized e-liquid or excessive coil heat, simply run hot water over your device. Some vaping enthusiasts swear by boiling atomizers and cartomizers in water. Before deciding, remember to check your user manual for recommendations. You should also take the material of your device into consideration.

    E-cigarette tips require regular scrubbing with warm water and unscented soap or isopropyl alcohol. Tanks need to be routinely checked for cracks or risks of leakage. Much like various forms of atomizers, you can clean your plastic, glass, or metal tank in warm water with soap or high-grain alcohol. Clean batteries and chargers with cotton swabs or tissue to maintain threading. Alternatively, you can use the same kind of compressed air duster you might use on your electronics. Batteries will require weekly maintenance, but it never hurts to get in the habit of checking your batteries after every use.

    Bacteria counts can build on any vape accessory you come into contact with. Keep yourself safe, healthy, and happy by creating a cleaning routine for your vape gear. We guarantee you won’t regret it! If cleaning sounds like too much work, there are a wide variety of disposable vaping products to choose from.

  • Where is Vaping Allowed?

    Vaping may still be relatively new to the scene, but people are unlocking the potential of smokeless technology in the most unusual places. You may see vaping devices everywhere, but where is vaping actually allowed? In an effort to improve the vaping experience for all, Vapage® provides support every step of the way and tackles tough subjects so our customers can pursue the best vaping experience possible. One of the most frequently asked questions we receive relates to where these devices can be used. Join us as we explore legalities and ways in which you can remain conscientious of others. Keep reading to learn more!

    Much like traditional cigarettes, vaping in your own home or property is perfectly suitable. If you rent an apartment or home, your landlord or property manager may enact certain limitations to this freedom. Some rental agreements and contracts state specific locations that are acceptable for smoke or vapor inhalation, but it is always best to properly dispose of empty cartomizers or personal waste to reduce the risk of confrontation or citation. Most states have their own laws pertaining to shared walls, so condominiums and townhouses may also be subject to state regulation.

    Wondering about work? Although the verdict changes on a day-to-day basis, vaping in designated smoking areas is still perfectly legal. However, some workplaces place severe restrictions as to when or where you can vape. When in doubt, check with your Human Resources department. Many cities throughout the United States are trying to change the freedom of vaping in public regardless, even going as far as to extend bans to beaches and parks. Before you travel, we recommend that you verify any rules to ensure compliance. We can also safely assume that vaping on college campuses, in public buildings, or at airports is frowned upon and strongly discouraged.

    Now that we know some of the places you cannot or should not vape, it is important to remember that there are still safe havens in public spaces for people that like to vape. Driving in your car, for instance, is a perfectly acceptable mode of vaping. Most bars and cafés will advertise smoking bans in a clear location. These bans may not extend to vaping, but you should always check with the business owner or manager. As always, respect his or her decision.

    As part of the vaping community, it is your responsibility to respect others and understand their hesitancies about vapor systems and products. If you have any questions about where vaping is allowed, please feel free to contact a member of our team for additional information.

  • Is Vaping on Planes Allowed?

    Vaping is taking the world by storm, but there are still many limitations to when and where you can enjoy your favorite flavors and vapor. In an effort to improve the vaping experience, we provide support every step of the way to our loyal Vapage® customers. Frequently asked questions are imperative to understanding these devices and knowing how to use them. One of the most frequently asked questions we receive pertains to travel. Most states have their own laws pertaining to vaping and traveling by car, but is vaping on planes allowed? In this guide, we’ll review all the essential steps for traveling by air with your vape gear and staying compliant with the rules of your airline or airport.

    As of 1998, the U.S. Department of Transportation placed a ban on smoking on commercial aircraft. This ban grew to encompass electronic cigarettes, although there is no evidence to suggest that these products contain carcinogens or respiratory irritants. This precautionary approach bans the use of electronic cigarettes in all forms, including electronic cigars, pipes, and devices designed to look like everyday products. Sorry, pen or flashlight devotees. Airlines and airports are working to protect their passengers from unwanted exposure, and this ban eliminates any confusion between smoke and vapor products by restricting the use of both.

    Vapers are able to carry their devices and gear on the plane, but the use of your device is prohibited. Moreover, your device should be completely empty prior to traveling. Carry your e-liquids, batteries, and essentials with you. Remember to seal your e-juices in a clear gallon-sized bag to reduce the risk of leaks. Because the plane’s cargo area is not pressurized, we recommend that you choose carry on when traveling with glass devices.

    One of our most important responsibilities as vaping enthusiasts is to respect those around us. People who have never vaped or smoked before may find vapor very uncomfortable, especially when it concerns their children. Be respectful and be prepared. Is vaping on planes allowed? Although many of us firmly believe that vaping is different, these novel devices are still under scrutiny and may remain so until we know more. If you have any questions about this guide, please feel free to contact a member of our team for additional information. As always, travel safe!

  • How to Travel with Your Vape Gear

    Although vaping is still relatively new to the scene, enthusiasts are unlocking the possibilities of vapor in the most unusual places. Today, you see vaping devices in bars, at the beach, and anywhere you can think of. Whether you’re gearing up for a weekend getaway or a deluxe vacation in paradise, traveling with e-cigarette supplies can present its own set of challenges. Air travel will certainly have its container restrictions, but you can pass through TSA safely by following a few simple rules. We’ll review how to travel with your vape gear so you can plan ahead and keep your devices safe.

    Traveling by air? Getting stopped by TSA is never very fun, but learning how to travel with your vape gear can make all the difference in your upcoming excursion. Vape mods, tanks, and rebuildable dripping atomizers are permitted for check in and carry on, but remember to remove your tank or RDA batteries beforehand. Stay on the safe side by investing in a battery case for your rechargeable batteries and carry them with you.

    Tanks and RDAs should be completely empty prior to transport, and removing your juices can reduce the risk of spillage. Because the plane’s cargo area is not pressurized, we recommend that you choose carry on only when traveling with glass devices. E-juice is also safe to check in or carry on when traveling by air, but most airlines place a 100-milliliter maximum on e-liquids. Before packing your e-liquids, make sure that all bottle caps are closed tight and store yours in a clear bag to avoid any confusion or suspicion.

    Before traveling, check with your specific airline or airport to double check their rules. Don’t assume your device or liquids are safe when they’re rolling around in your purse. Instead, pack them correctly to prevent any safety concerns. Nicotine can have harmful effects when coming into contact with skin. Just driving? The last thing you want is to fumble about beneath the seats in your car to track down loose device components or supplies. Invest in a foam cup holder to keep your mod from rattling around.

    Most vape ingredients should only be stored at specific temperatures, so never leave your vape gear in a hot car. Now that you know how to travel with your vape gear, we hope that you can confidently pack and prepare for the journey ahead. If you have any questions about this guide, please contact a member of our team for further assistance.

  • Difference of Nicotine in Cigarettes Vs. E-Cigs

    Beyond the fact that you don’t have to deal with secondhand smoke, ash, or messes anymore, vaping devices make it easier to sit back and relax as you inhale on your own terms. Traditional cigarettes contain tar and more than 4,000 chemicals, but they’ll also stain your teeth and drain your wallet in the process. Vaping is still relatively new to the scene, so new users are bound to have questions or concerns when it comes to their health. One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is the difference of nicotine in cigarettes versus e-cigs. In our journey to improve the vaping experience, we also want to raise awareness about e-cigarettes. Keep reading to learn more about the nicotine differences between traditional smokes and cutting-edge vapor.

    Vapage® has been an industry leader for almost a decade, because we only engineer products that we actually want to use and provide support every step of the way. Discovering the difference of nicotine in cigarettes versus e-cigs is an important question to ask before making the big switch to mechanical vaping devices. First, what is nicotine? Nicotine is an alkaloid made from plants, but it can be produced synthetically to the same effect. Nicotine is known to modify moods, and reports claim either a stimulating or relaxing effect. For most of us, an oral fixation is a small price to pay for patience, productivity, or a stolen moment in paradise with our favorite flavor.

    E-liquids and e-juices do contain user-directed nicotine levels, but they are not as high as the nicotine concentrations found in traditional smokes. According to numerous cessation communities, each cigarette contains between 12 and 23 milligrams of nicotine, or 18 milligrams on average. Current studies show that approximately half of all e-liquid nicotine transfers into vapor during the e-cig heating process. An average e-cigarette cartomizer contains approximately one milliliter of liquid, but the user selects the nicotine level per unit volume.

    When determining the difference of nicotine in cigarettes versus e-cigs, it’s important to measure the amount of nicotine in your base material before conversion, the amount of nicotine in your particulate cloud, as well as the relative absorption rates of nicotine with the human body. We each react to nicotine in a unique way, so it will be impossible to determine the exact amount of nicotine in your e-cigarette vapor. You can, however, take control over your nicotine intake by limiting your e-liquid nicotine levels over time and diluting with quality ingredients. If you have any questions or concerns about this guide, please feel free to contact a member of our team for further assistance or additional information.

  • Reject the FDA's Deeming of Vapor Products as Tobacco Products

    https://www.change.org/p/u-s-senate-u-s-house-of-representatives-president-of-the-united-states-reject-the-fda-s-deeming-of-vapor-products-as-tobacco-products-2

    Soon Congress will be presented with regulations proposing to deem electronic cigarettes and other vapor products as tobacco products, bringing them within the regulatory control of the FDA under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act.

    We, the members of the vaping community, including users of vapor products, current and ex smokers, concerned citizens, and friends and family of those whose lives have been or could be changed by vapor products, urge you to reject the proposed deeming regulations.

    The classification of vapor products as tobacco products is tenuous at best. While some vapor products do contain nicotine, many do not, and this is where the link to tobacco ends. The goal of the FSPTCA is to minimize the effects of tobacco on public health. In 1976 Professor Michael Russell wrote: “People smoke for nicotine but they die from the tar.”1 Vapor products are free of tobacco, contain no tar, and are not combusted and as such are orders of magnitude less potentially harmful than combustible tobacco.2  In fact, more recent studies that look at nicotine, absent tobacco smoke, show that nicotine is possibly not addictive and could have potential health benefits related to treating Parkinson’s symptoms and staving off Alzheimer’s.3

    The Federal government and each state have spent hundreds of millions over decades attempting to discourage people from smoking cigarettes. We now have a viable alternative to tobacco products that could do just that, through tobacco harm reduction. This life changing technology has the potential to accomplish what Tobacco Control has failed to do for the past fifty years, unless it is smothered in its infancy. Vapor products, as a recreational consumer good, have the potential to replace combustible tobacco, keeping millions from potential tobacco related illnesses. According to recent CDC surveys, in the time frame that vapor products have been available, smoking rates in the United States have plummeted to an all time low.4 However, if vapor products are subjected to the same strict regulatory control intended to minimize harm from tobacco products, they could be rendered ineffectual due to the stifling nature of those regulations.5

    By rejecting the classification of vapor products as tobacco products we can:

    1              Protect access to flavors, which are an integral part of the vapor experience.6

    2              Protect access to online sales that allow consumers to procure the equipment and e-liquids that are best suited for their needs.

    3              Protect access to all nicotine concentrations, which allow the consumer to tailor their experience to their needs which could range from higher concentrations to aid in transitioning from smoking to nicotine free for enjoyment and maintenance.

    4              Protect access to open, reusable container systems that are more cost effective and environmentally friendly.

    5             Allow for the continued innovation and refinement of products currently on the market.

    Vapor products are not tobacco products, they are a safer alternative to tobacco products which may or may not contain nicotine. Vapor products are also a driving force behind thousands of small and medium businesses across the country, creating jobs and feeding the economy, many of which will not survive the exorbitant fee structure of tobacco product approval that has kept the cigarette market in the hands of only the major tobacco companies. The vapor product industry has already gained ground in self regulation by the formation of industry trade groups, and through the active involvement of the consumers.7 Instead of relegating vapor products to tobacco control, a new category of product regulation can be implemented, one that could inspire innovation along with public health and safety. The best way to protect this life altering technology is to not place it under the auspices of the FSPTCA, by not deeming vapor products as tobacco products.
