E-Cigarettes & E-Liquids – FAQ
1. What is an E-Cigarette?
E-Cigarettes go by a few names: e-cigs, mods, box mods, vapes, vape devices, vape pens, vaporizers, or portable vaporizer. They are all electronic devices that heat up E-Liquid into a vapor that is inhaled.
2. What is E-Liquid?
E-Liquid or e-juice are liquid mixtures of nicotine, flavoring, vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol and other chemicals that are heated up to produce a vapor which is inhaled. Not all e-liquids contain the same chemicals or flavorings. It is important to check with the different manufacturers if you have any known allergies and are concerned about use.
3. Do all e-liquids contain nicotine?
No, e-liquids come in different nicotine strengths. Most brands will even offer a 0 mg option. Different manufacturers use different measurements of nicotine, however the most common are 0 mg, 3 mg, 6 mg and 12 mg. If your e-liquid shows a strength of 0.3 mg, 0.6 mg or 1.2 mg these are the same strengths. Some manufacturers prefer to use the more accurate measurement for convenience.
4. What is salt nic or salt nicotine?
Salt nic is another form of nicotine used in e-liquids. Salt nicotine e-liquids have a lower alkalinity which gives a different type of throat hit. This is why vaping a 50mg salt nic may be more enjoyable then vaping a 12mg regular nicotine. Salt nic is generally used in the smaller, more portable devices, or any tank with a resistance of 1 ohm or higher.
5. What are the different types of devices VaporDNA carries?
VaporDNA strives to carry a variety of devices to cover any needs you may have. Vape pens will be the easiest to use. They offer the experience of vaping without all the customizations, menus and adjustable features. We sell starter kits, which are devices and tanks that have an ease of use but still offer customizable features like variable wattage. Mods, sold separate from kits, are often times devices that customers like to mix and match together with different tanks or dripping styles tanks. Ultra-portable devices, mainly used with salt nic, are increasing in numbers as well. They are smaller devices that do not offer the different adjustments and settings but offer a strong and portable device that is mostly used with the salt nice liquids.
6. What is a mechanical mod?
A mechanical mod is a device that does not have the same built in safety features, electronics or circuitry as other mainstream devices. Mechanical mods contain a lithium ion battery that connects directly to the tank, rda or rta. These are known to produce unregulated power for optimized performance. However, due to the safety concerns, these are not carried by VaporDNA.
7. What is the difference between a tank, RDA, or RTA?
Tanks are the most common and easiest to use. They will have specific coils that are sold as replacements. RTA’s are rebuildable tank atomizers. This means it is still a tank style, but the coils you would need to build yourself. Some vapors prefer building themselves, as it allows the ability to get different resistances which can increase or decrease strength. They do not come with a tank; instead, they are a platform that holds a coil which you would drip your e-liquid onto. RDA’s provide the ability to not only build to your preferred resistance but also get a more direct vapor flavor and often times larger cloud production.
8. Is building your coils, yourself, dangerous?
To be able to build your own coils, you do need knowledge on resistances and what your device can handle. Although most devices do have built in safety features, this activity is mostly preferred by highly experiences vapors.
9. Can my e-cigarette explode?
There are various causes of e-cigarette explosion that can easily be avoided by following a vape device’s instructions. The most common cause of e-cigarette explosions is mishandling of the device or Lithium Ion battery. Using faulty or damaged batteries should be avoided at all cost. Damage can happen to the wrapping, exposing the metal of the battery through use. Batteries should always stay dry and out of hot locations. Lithium Ion batteries should also never come into contact with any metallic objects like loose change in a purse or the button studs on a pocket. For more information on battery safety please read our battery disclaimers.
10. How long will a coil or pod last?
There is not a set amount of time that any pod or coil will last. Things like the e-juice you are using and the settings on your device and how often you vape will affect the life of your coil or pod. Some coils may last a week where as some may last closer to a month.
11. Are coils and pods universal?
No. Most systems have specific coils that need to be used. This is due to the power of the device and size. If you use the incorrect coils, it may not fit. This can cause issues with leaking as well as damaging the tank itself. Unless specifically stated by the manufacturer, it is best to use the coils specifically made for the device in use.
12. Are coils reusable?
No, replacement coils are not reusable. This means once your coils is starting to loose flavor, burn or even leak out, it needs to be replaced. You can, however, change to a different flavor without changing coils. The original e-liquid may linger, but it is possible to swap out e-liquid.
13. How can I clean my tank?
First, disassemble to tank. The coil cannot be washed. However, you can remove the o-rings and glass section. Place the tank components into a bowl of warm water. If any dish soap is used, very little is necessary. Make sure you rinse the pieces thoroughly to avoid any soapy taste. A paper towel can be used to dry everything off. When you reassemble the tank, make sure everything is secure to avoid leaking. However, do not overtighten the pieces. This can cause the o-rings to snap or cause damage to the different pieces themselves.
14. How do I store my E-Liquid?
It is best to keep e-liquid in a dry, dark and cool area. When e-liquid, containing nicotine, is exposed to air, heat or sunlight the e-liquid can steep quickly. This means the e-liquid will become very dark. It will also change the way the nicotine seems to hit as well as the taste.
15. What is steeping? What happens to the e-liquid when it is steeped?
Steeping is a way of aging the e-liquid, and is normally done to achieve better flavor. It's done by letting the e-liquid sit in a cool and dark place. Steeping allows the ingredients (VG/PG base, flavorings and nicotine) to blend together. Some e-liquid may even contain trace amounts of alcohol, which will evaporate when it is steeped. E-Liquids will darken in color due to the process of oxidations when steeping.
