All your vaping questions answered...
What is vaping?
Vaping is the inhale and exhale of vaporized liquid, this liquid is usually a mix of propelyene glycol, vegetable glycerin and flavourings
When combined with Nicotine it is a very effective way to help quit smoking.
There are two ways in which to inhale vapour and different devices will be suited for one of these methods.
MTL: Mouth to Lung
This is to replicate a draw like a cigarette, this is usually used for those new to vaping and is inhaled into the mouth and then into your lungs like a cigarette. This is used with higher resistance coils and lower power.
DTL: Direct to Lung
Usually for intermediate to advanced users, this type of draw is directly into your lungs and then exhaled quite quickly. Higher power and lower resistance coils are associated with DTL draws. Also the term subohm, with means the coil resistance is lower than 1.0 ohm.
How do vaping devices work?
All vaping devices work in the same fundamental way: A battery powers a coil (heating element) that turns the e-liquid into vapour. Vape devices come in all shapes and sizes, all doing the same job but in their own way.
Why should I vape?
Vaping is a successful method for stopping smoking, with having financial benefits it also has a massive health benefit.
As study shows from leading health organisations show that it is up to 95% better for you than smoking.
Some of these organisations are listed under 'Is vaping safe?'
This is not completely risk free, however it is a significant improvement from smoking.
The financial benefits vary from person to person depending on a few factors such as: the brand of cigarettes you smoke, how many you smoke a day, and whether you smoke cigarettes, rollups, cigars to name but a few.

Can I quit smoking by vaping?
This is a difficult one as there are so many different factors with regards to quitting smoking. Vaping will certainly aid you in quitting smoking, but this needs to be partnered with Will Power, the correct device and the right level of nicotine for maximum effect.
There are two ways in looking at this, are you wanting to use vaping to completely stop all together ie stop smoking then stop vaping or are you happy with switching to a healthier alternative from our experience those that are unsure or have not come to terms with either of these options end up picking up cigarettes again.
The one thing that is guaranteed with vaping is the habit of picking something up and putting it to your mouth. This is one of the reasons smoking is so hard to give up.
What is the correct device for me?
Mouth To Lung : These devices replicate a cigarette draw and create very little vapour, they are in most cases used with a higher nicotine strength. They are perfect for new starts because they replicate that cigarette draw. They are low powered which allows the user to use high nicotine without it being so strong that they physically cannot use the device.
For more information on the right device for you pop into store and discuss with our experienced staff or contact us.

Can I vape anywhere?
The answer to this is no, although it does not fall under the smoking ban per say. You cannot vape in Hospitals, airports, flights, doctors surgeries etc. However there is no law technically stoping you from vaping in Pubs and Clubs. As these are privately owned properties it is up to the business whether or not you can vape on their premises. If unsure please ask, never assume that it is allowed.
