What are E-cigs

E-cigs, short for e-cigarettes or electronic delivery systems, are battery-operated devices that are used to inhale the vapour, which typically contains nicotine, food flavourings and other ingredients found in everyday foods. They sometimes resemble conventional cigarettes, cigars, or pipes, or even everyday items like pens. Different devices, such as those with fillable tanks and LCD screens may look different but function the same.

What is vaping?

Vaping means using an e-cigarette or vaping device. Both have a heating element that converts liquid into vapour which you then inhale.

What are Mechanical Mods?

Mechanical Mods are unregulated mods that have a coil wired directly to a battery, hence the name mech mods. Mech mods have no electronic circuitry, power adjustments or safety features but allow the user to harness the raw power from the batteries.

Having a good understanding of ohms law is essential for using mechanical mods.

What is sub ohm vaping?

Sub-ohm relates to the resistance of the coil being below 1 ohm. Sub-ohm vaping is also named direct-to-lung due to the method in which you inhale the vapour directly into your lungs, unlike traditional smoking where the smoke is inhaled into the mouth then taken down into the lungs.

Scotts advise that you use e-liquids which are described as 70VG/30PG for optimal flavour and cloud production. Nicotine levels are normally within the range of 0mg-6mg.

What is Variable Voltage?

Variable Voltage vape kits & devices let you adjust the voltage of your e-cig. This in turn enables you to also control the temperature of the vapour.

A higher voltage means a hotter vapour with a harsher throat-hit and a lower voltage would create a slightly cooler vapour with less of a throat-hit.

Will i need batteries for my device?

As every device is different, please review your e-cigarette’s manual for guidance and care of batteries. 

What are External Batteries?

External vape batteries are batteries that don’t come pre-built-in to your vape device or kit. Like any other battery you use in day-to-day life, they have a positive end and a negative end. The most common type of battery for use with vaping is the 18650, but regardless of capacity, they all have the same configuration and perform the same purpose.

What are Internal Batteries?

Internal vape batteries are batteries that are pre-fitted into your device. This type of device requires you to charge the full device, unlike external battery mods, in which you can just swap out the battery for a fully charged one.
