VAPE FAQ’S

  • Can I order vape products online?
    • We do not allow online purchases but after you have browsed through our products, you can call the store and an associate can process your order. If you live outside of Utah we can ship the product but if you live within Utah, the law requires your product to be picked up in-store.
  • Do you ship to all 50 States?
    • No. Please keep in mind your state’s restrictions. At this time, we are unable to ship to Maine, South Dakota, and Utah. This information is subject to change.
  • What is an Electronic Cigarette?
    • They are electronic devices that heat E-liquid into a vapor. There are many names for Electronic Cigarettes: device, mod, vaporizers, vape pens, etc.
  • What is E-liquid?
    • E-liquid or e-juice contains only a few liquid mixtures: flavoring, Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerin, and Nicotine. Be sure to check on different manufactures if you have any known allergies.
  • What is Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG)?
    • Propylene Glycol is an organic substance that is can absorb water. In e-juice PG acts as a flavor carrier and is responsible for giving a “throat hit”. Vegetable Glycerin is an organic compound that serves as a base, as a filler, or as a dilutant. VG is responsible for thickening juice and giving a “smoother” hit. 
  • Does all E-liquid contain nicotine?
    • No, there are many different levels available depending on your preference. Most companies offer 0mg nicotine. Other levels such as 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, and 24mg are available.
  • What is Nic Salt?
    • Nic Salt is a different form of nicotine. It is less bitter than normal nicotine which results in a smoother throat hit. You’ll usually see Nic Salt in smaller electronic devices like Pod Systems and Pod Mods. You’ll find them in levels of 50mg, 40mg, 30mg, and sometimes lower. Utah allows us to carry up to 24mg per 15ml bottle.
  • What is a Mechanical mod?
    • A mechanical mod is an unregulated device. Usually in a tube or box style mod. They do not have circuit boards which means straight raw power. We recommend knowing battery safety and understanding Ohms Law before you try a mechanical mod out. High drain lithium-ion batteries only!
  • Why can’t I get 12mg nicotine is a 60ml. size bottle?
    • Each state has different laws regarding the amount of nicotine shops are allowed to sell. Utah law states bottles cannot contain more the 360mg. This means the bigger the bottle, the less amount of nicotine it can contain. 60ml. bottles can go as high and 6mg. and 100ml. bottles can go as high as 3mg. 
  • What is the difference between an RDA, Tank, RTA, and RDTA?
    • RDA (Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer) allows you to build/wrap your coils and wick your cotton. You will need to drip your e-juice on the wick to saturate it. Usually, RDA’s provide the best flavor and vapor.
    • Tanks have a reservoir holding from 2ml all the up to 10ml’s of e-juice! Tanks use prebuilt atomizers so all you have to do is prime your coil and insert it in the base. This is the most common set up.
    • RTA’s and RDTA’s both are rebuildable like RDA’s but sit inside a tank eliminating the need to drip your e-juice. tank atomizer. The RDTA can be dripped with too. 
  • Can my E-Cigarette explode?
    • Yes, if not properly taken care of it could. Any rips or tears on your battery wrap could cause a hard short. Not using High Drain Lithium Ion batteries or faulty batteries could cause an issue as well as leaving your device in hot temperatures. Do not put loose batteries in your pocket, buy a battery case. Please understand battery safety if you are using High Drain Lithium-Ion batteries.
  • How long will my coil last?
    • This depends on the person and type of e-juice being used. The coil could burn out if not properly primed. Sweeter flavors will impact the coil a lot more. Typically coils should be lasting roughly about 2 weeks.
  • What is the difference between a mesh and a round wire coil?
    • A mesh coil is a strip of wire that looks similar to a window screen. This strip of wire covers the majority of cotton inside the atomizer. This results in better overall burning of the cotton which increases the flavor and life of the coil.
  • How do I store my E-Liquid?
    • You want to store it in a cool, dark, dry place when not using it. Exposing it to the sun can cause the liquid to steep quickly which will cause it to turn darker and possibly ruin the flavor.
  • What is steeping?
    • Steeping is needed when mixing liquid. It helps bring all liquids together (VG, PG, Flavor, and nicotine). Some juices will darken in color due to oxidation when steeping. This helps build the flavor all together.
  • Is vaping healthier than smoking cigarettes?
