It generally uses a heating element known as an atomizer, that vaporizes a liquid solution known as e-liquid. E-liquids usually contain a mixture of propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, nicotine, and flavorings, while others release a flavored vapor without nicotine.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What are the Ingredients in eJuice or eLiquid?” style=”default” size=”md” open=”false”]E-liquid, e-juice or simply “juice”, refers to a liquid solution that produces an aerosol when heated by an atomizer. The main ingredients of e-liquids are usually a mix of propylene glycol (PG), and vegetable glycerin (VG), mixed with concentrated or extracted flavorings; and optionally, a variable concentration of tobacco-derived nicotine. Most e-cigarette liquids contain nicotine, but the consumer chooses the level of nicotine. The consumer can also purchase e-liquid that has no nicotine.

Pre-made e-liquids are manufactured with various tobacco, fruit, and other flavors, as well as variable nicotine concentrations (including nicotine-free versions). The standard notation “mg/ml” is often used in labeling for denoting nicotine concentration, and is sometimes shortened to a simple “mg”.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How do I clean an eCig Tank?” style=”default” size=”md” open=”false” el_id=”1437231068989-ad5664ab-c540″]Almost all tanks come apart into a few piece. To clean a tank simply dump out the eJuice still inside. Then take all the pieces apart and soak in warm or hot water. You should replace the coil at this time by pressing down on it then twisting to remove it.

If you do not remove the coil and discard it, then you must clean it well to get the old flavor off. When you first turn it back on you will also hear a sizzling sound and that would be the water burning off and may take a couple minutes to get the eJuice into the coil.

Once all pieces are cleaned off, dry with paper towel or a few Q-Tips and reassemble.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How Do I Use an eCig?” style=”default” size=”md” open=”false”]An eCigarette creates the vapor by using an atomizer – also known as coil – which heats up the wicks that has eJuice in it. Atomizers have a life span of roughly 10 days each one, at that point usually the wicks have “gunk” build up on them from the sugars in the flavouring. At this point a person may throw out the old one by pressing down on it and twisting while it is in the base of the tank. Make sure not to flip the tank the wrong way when filling/changing the atomizer coil since eJuice will most likely spill out.

To use a device most of them turn on by pressing the firing button 3 or 5 times depending on the model. To take a “puff” you must hold down the button for as long as you are inhaling. Many people try and take quick puffs like a cigarette but this is not the case with these devices. Since the coil takes a second to heat up the average puffer goes slow for about a 2 second pull. Once done with your puff you will let go of the button to keep it from burning more eJuice.

Many Devices have a variable setting, to change the Voltage or Wattage of the device. Turning this up or down will determine how hot and how quick the coil will heat up. The higher the voltage the hotter the coil gets. Sometimes people go too high and cause the coil to give off a burning taste, but this is just because the juice can’t keep up with how quick it is burning. When you are done taking your puffs you may turn the device off with the same amount of presses to the firing button. Whether it was 3 or 5.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What are the parts inside an eCig or Electronic Cigarette? ” style=”default” size=”md” open=”false” el_id=”1437231137789-20261df8-034d”]An electronic cigarette (e-cig or e-cigarette), consists of the following:

  1. Rechargeable Battery – Typically Lithium-based and charges via a USB plug or adaptor
  2. Microprocessor – a built-in chip that triggers an atomizer to allow for heat the eJuice into a vapor
  3. Atomizer – a heating coil that heats ejuice into a vapour
  4. Cartridge or Clearomizer – a ‘tank’ that holds eJuice
  5. Sensor ‘button’ – a built-in detection to activate the microprocessor when pressed or triggered
  6. LED light – an indicator light to show when the microprocessor is in use, heating the coil to turn eJuice into vapor.
[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What are the laws about electronic cigarette use indoors?” style=”default” size=”md” open=”false”]At this moment in Ontario, there are no laws about use inside. There is only courtesy, if you are in a common area where many people are sitting or standing around, vapor or not, it is not kind to puff vapor into someone’s face when they are; enjoying a meal, reading a book, or talking with friends. Especially when they do not know what it is, it may look like smoke to some other people, but we ask that you keep the vaping outside, unless you speak to the owner of the establishment and keep it to a minimum. Hopefully by doing this we will not need to have a bad stipulation about eCigs and vaping.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What do I need to get started?” style=”default” size=”md” open=”false” el_id=”1439853221566-20104799-a290″]First, you will need to purchase a starter kit. Our starter kits come with everything you will need to begin in terms of parts. After you figure out which model starter kit you wish to purchase, you will need eLiquid to fill your tanks. All of our Clearomizers and tanks are refillable with eLiquid. We suggest purchasing 2-3 bottles of eLiquid in various flavors and strengths in order to find the one most suitable to your preference. If you do need some help, you can call our store, or join us on LiveChat.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What is resistance/ohm?” style=”default” size=”md” open=”false” el_id=”1439853249942-146875d6-2b91″]Resistance is a term that describes the forces that oppose the flow of electron current in a conductor. Resistance is measured in units called ohms. The scientific definition of one ohm is the amount of electrical resistance that exists in an electrical circuit when one amp of current is flowing with one volt being applied to the circuit.

Great but what does this have to do with an eCig? With some of our atomizers and cartomizers, we offer a resistance/ohm option. Basic explanation: The lower the ohm, the quicker the atomizer heats up. This translates to more vapor and possibly shorter lifespan and increased chance of experiencing an unpleasant burnt taste.

Generally speaking, low resistance atomizers (1.5-1.8ohm) are intended to give the user an experience similar to a higher voltage setup (4.3V-6V) using standard voltage output batteries (3.2V-4.2V). Resistance is not as important when using a variable voltage device because the user is able to increase or decrease output voltage accordingly. However, this is not always the case.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Why does my vapour taste burnt?” style=”default” size=”md” open=”false” el_id=”1439853274211-096b782f-80c9″]There are three main reasons why your vapour may taste burnt. The first reason is that when you fill the tank with liquid and if you have a fresh coil you will need to let it saturate in the eJuice so it has something to vaporize. This is very important because if you have a cotton coil, you may burn the actual coil if it is not properly saturated and thus would cause the coil to become useless. The second reason is that the voltage/wattage may be set to high for the coil, and it is not wicking fast enough to keep up with the high temperature. And the last reason is that the coil may be burnt out, this happens after a fair amount of usage per coil/atomizer and it means it is time to replace the coil.[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][/vc_row]
