What is Vaping?
So you decided to switch to vaping! First off, good call! Welcome to the rapidly growing number of folks who have switched and become a vaper. So, I am sure you have questions, so we will start with basics. What is vaping? Simply put, vaping is transforming a liquid (ejuice, vape juice or e-liquid) into a vapor that you inhale. Essentially, that’s the definition. You “vape” your liquid through a battery-powered device which heats it up and turns it into vapor. There is no combustion involved when you are vaping.
Choosing a Device
These pen-shaped devices have small sub-ohm tanks, they ae relitivley easy to use and they travel very well. Pens are popular with newer vapers as they can emulate hand to mouth as they used to do with analogs.
Box Mods and Vaping Kits
Bigger and more complicated devices that allow you to continually adjust the performance by swapping batteries, tanks and coils. These sophisticated devices are popular with experienced vapers who want to continually refine their vaping experience.
Vape Pod Systems
These devices use pre-filled e-liquid capsules or refillable capsules that make it easy for you to swap between flavors and nic levels. These on popular with on-the-go vapers and those who just switched over to vaping due to the ease of use and easy cartridge change. Pens are popular with vapers who want to experiment with flavors and with newbies to vaping because of the ease of use.
Getting to Know the Lingo! A Vape Term Glossary
So you've ditched the habit and you're taking the plunge into the vape world, there are some terms that eJuice direct uses in our product descriptions that you're going to see alot of as well as some terms you will come across every once in a while. We've taken the "Vape Lingo" and created a glossary of terms for easy access! The glossary is always growing and if we've missed a term or you want to add let us know! Contact Us!
18650 - Refers to a specific size of rechargeable, Ion battery, one of the most popular sizes used in box mods.
20700 – The type of battery typically used with advanced box mods and some mech mods. These batteries offer more storage capacity and amperage than the conventional 18650’s.
26650 – The largest-sized battery used in advanced e-cigarettes and PVs, these are usually used by sub-ohm vapers, or users who use atomizers with resistance less than 1 ohm. These batteries offer more storage capacity and amperage than the conventional 18650’s.
510 – common style of threading for vape devices available. 510 threads are located on the battery, or battery component, looking "screw-like" the 510 connection is the screw hole usually found on tanks. It's a male-adapted 510 while on the device, it is a female 510 connection. Having a female 510 tank and female 510 device would require an adapter.
Advanced Personal Vaporizer (APV)Also referred to as mods (or modified e-cigs), these units are larger, have replaceable batteries, and can either be mechanical, variable voltage, or variable wattage.
Adapter – a threaded device double sided (male and female) that allows differnet styles or types of tank, atomizer, cartomizer, or clearomiser to fit onto a battery of device with a different type of threading.
Ajustable Airflow – ‘Airflow’ isn’t very complicated really. It’s just a fancy word for the rate, speed and pressure at which air flows from your vaping device when you take a puff or draw.
All Day Vape (ADV) – vape it all day long without it getting old. AKA- you’re Go-To-Juice!
Amperage (amps) – Amperage is a measurement of the rate of flow of electrical energy flowing through a circuit. In APV’s the lower the amps, the less capable the circuit is in handling high voltages in combination with low resistance atomizers.
All Day Vape (ADV) – This is your favorite, never let's you down! You can vape it all day long.
Amps – An ampere or amp is a unit of electrical current. An amp will tell vapers how powerful a battery is by a number. The higher the amps, the higher the battery’s power output.
Analog (Analog Cigarette) - a slang term used by the vapers referring to a combustible cigarette.
Atomizer – an atomizer is a component of a mod that is screwed onto the battery. This component houses the heating coil, wick and bridge, all used to heat up your ejuice, vape juice or e-liquid into a vapor.
Automatic Shutoff – is "protection" or safety feature on any vape device that will automatically shut off the device in a timeframe you set without any use.

Drip Well - a recessed area around the connector on an APV or Mod that is designed to catch any e-liquid that might leak out from the air vents at the base of the atomizer/tank/cartomizer, etc. Also, may refer to a recessed area around the coil connectors of an RDA designed to catch excess juice and hold wicking material.
Dry Burn/Hit - occurs when a coil is electrified and heats up, while the wick is not saturated. Dry burns can be done intentionally in an attempt to clean a coil, burning off impurities, while the user does not inhale. A dry hit is usually the unintentional result of allowing a wick to run dry, producing a foul, burnt taste accidentally inhaled by the user.
eJuice - aka: E-liquid, smoke juice, nic juice, e-Juice, e-Liquid - the liquid component, often containing nicotine, that is vaporized in vaping devices, to be inhaled by the user. Usually comprised of flavoring, vegetable glycerin and/or propylene glycol, and may or may not contain nicotine.

Lithium Ion Batteries (Li-Ion) - considered the strongest and most powerful batteries in the vape industry. Li-Ions are available in many different sizes and shapes and in various mAh ratings.
mA - 1/1000th of an amp. This number is most often used in reference to the output of chargers.
mAh - abbreviation for Milliamperes per hour, which is used to describe the capacity, or energy charge, of a battery. Higher mAh capacity batteries can deliver the same power as a lower mAh battery of the same voltage, but for a longer period of time.
Manual Shut-Off - a safety/protection feature found on most manual vape devices that allows the user to turn off the battery with a combination of clicks.
Mechanical Mod (Mech Mod, Mech PV, Mech) – a low-tech electronic cigarette which contains no special electronics or wiring. Mech Mods are comprised of a metal tube which holds a battery, a mechanical switch and a connector for a topper/atomizer/tank. These are for hoobyist or vape pros, they have little or no protections and require an advanced knowledge of vaping
Mesh Coil - Woven strands of thin wire that offers more surface area and rapid heat up, mesh coils can produce better flavor, greater cloud production, and improved battery efficiency. Considered by many to be the best coil in the vape indusrtry.
Microcomputer/Microprocessor - a smart microchip that signals the battery to send a charge of power to the atomizer, effectively “firing” the vape device, allowing other features such as LEDs and “puff” counts.
mg strength - the amount of nicotine (in milligrams) contained within one millilitre of e-liquid. Written as mg typical on EJD is 0mg/3ng/6mg. Nic Salts will have a higher mg.(see Nic Salt)
Micro coil - a type of wire coil where the coil is wrapped tightly and with a short radius, so that the loops of the coil are all touching. Micro-coils usually require more wraps than a traditional coil to provide similar resistance (Ohm).
Milligram (mg) – a metric unit of mass equal to one one-thousandth (1/1000) of a gram. In electronic cigarettes, refers to the amount of nicotine that is contained in 1 mL of e-juice. Typical levels include 0mg, 6mg, 8mg, 12mg, 16mg, 18mg, and 24mg (all per mL).
MOD - short for modification. A Mod originally referred to the modification of a flashlight or a battery to be used in vaping, but the reference nowadays to any vaping device that is not a cig-a-like.
Mouth to Lung (MTL) - A method of inhaling vapor, where the user draws into their mouth, and then into their lungs. Considered the closest to what folks were doing before vaping, it is how most new vapers draw from their devices.
Mouthpiece - refers to the open end of a vape device that the user places to their mouth, and puffs from to inhale vapor. Mouthpieces can be in the form of a drip tip, cartridge, or even the tapered end of a tank.
Nichrome Wire - a type of resistance wire used in some atomizer coils made from nickel, chromium, and iron. A common ratio is 80% nickel to 20% chromium. Nichrome generally burns hotter than Kanthal and has a lower resistance.
Nic Juice - see E-Liquid
Nicotine (Nic) - Nicotine is an alkaloid chemical, naturally present in tobacco, eggplant and other plants of the nightshade family. It can be produced by extraction from plant materials, as well as produced synthetically in laboratories. Nicotine is an addictive substance, and its alkaloids have been associated with the pleasurable sensations described by some users. Nicotine is commonly known for being found within traditional and electronic cigarettes at various strengths; however, because it is an additive in e-Liquids, 0mg versions of e-liquids are available that truly contain NO NICOTINE, yet afford users the vapor production, and provide them with a nicotine-free alternative to smoking. A stronger Nic Salt formula is also avaible that enters the bloodstream quicker with a more realistic hit.
Nicotine Level - refers to the concentration of nicotine in an e-Liquid, measured in mg/ml See mg strength
NiMH - Nickel-Metal Hydride: a type of battery containing no cadmium, and no “memory effect” resulting in its ability to be charged or topped-off at any time without affecting battery life.
Ohm (O) - the standard unit of electrical resistance, named after German physicist Georg Simon Ohm. A lower number indicates lower resistance and therefore faster heating of a coil, as a result of higher wattage.
Organic Cotton - a material used by many RDA/RBA users as the wicking material which draws e-liquid into the coil to be vaporized.
Pass-through – a feature of some advanced personal vaporizers which allows a user to charge their device via a USB port, while continuing to vape or use their e-cig.
Pen Style – one of the many choices of electronic cigarettes available, which resembles in size and shape, the design of a ball-point pen.
Protections Refers to vape devices included safety features that prevent physical or mechanical harm.
Propylene Glycol (PG) - a viscous, colorless, nearly odorless organic compound that is widely used as a diluent (a filler and diluting agent) in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. Propylene glycol is one of two most common, main ingredients used in the production of e-liquids used in the electronic cigarette industry, due to its unsurpassed reputation for safety, and long history of use in pharmaceuticals including oral, inhalable and intravenous medications.
Puff - a short drawing action on the mouthpiece of an e-cig, pulling vapour into the user’s mouth.
Puff Activated - a device that is activated on the inhale, "an Auto Draw function
Re-wick - the advanced process of removing the wick from an atomizer. The wicks in many RDAs/RBAs can be removed and replaced, allowing for new wicking material to be installed.
Rebuildable Atomizer (RBA) - an atomizer with a user-serviceable/rebuildable design. Various configurations exist allowing for different coil and wicking materials including mesh, cotton and Ekowool. Rebuildable atomizers allow rebuilders to save on cost and afford the greatest flexibility in design and personalization.
RDA (Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer) - an RBA that is designed for dripping. Often, RBA and RDA are used interchangeably.
Resistance - a measurement of the degree to which a conductor opposes electrical current through that conductor; measured in ohms. In e-cigs, coils and atomizers are often available in two main classifications: low and standard resistance.
Resistance Wire - a type of electrical wire that is used in atomizer coils, which, when electricity is applied, heats up and acts to vaporize the e-juice. Resistance wire is most commonly either Nichrome or Kanthal.
Ribbon Kanthal, Ribbon Wire, Ribbon - a type of resistance wire used for building coils which has a flat cross-section, rather than round, providing more surface area to conduct heat to the e-liquid. Users of ribbon wire claim that it provides better vapor and flavor production than traditional, round resistance wire.
Sensor - an electronic component used in advanced e-cigarette batteries which can detects when the user is taking a puff, and can automatically provide power to the atomizer, this eliminating the need to press a button.
Silica - a braided cord material used for building wicks. It has a very high melting point, and is an alternative to cotton or polyester because it can be cleaned with an open flame like a butane torch without degrading the material.
Smart Chip - a computer chip located within a personal vaporizer battery giving it advanced functionality over a simple circuit design.
Starter Kit – Usaully most mod and vape pen manufacturers offer a kit that contains all you'll need to start vaping fro mthe minute you open the box. These are called starter kits and they most often contain a mod, tank, coil plus many times an extra glass tube and other items for your vape experience. Usaully batteries are not included except in built-in battery mods.
Steeping - the activity of allowing an e-liquid to sit, it's best to keep it in dark area with low temp fluctuation (keep it out of the heat and sunlight. Heat and sunlight can degrade the components of ejuice.) in a sealed container, after creation and before consumption, to allow for maximum flavor development. Steeping is generally not necessary with e-liquids that have a high ratio of PG to VG. Flavor changes are more often noticeable in e-liquids with high concentrations of VG.
Stick Style - another term for an electronic cigarette that resembles the look of a traditional, combustible cigarette.
Sub-Ohming - a practice employed by experienced vapers, using atomizers rated below 1 ohm, and increasing the amperage capacity of their devices, using specialized batteries (using the principles of Ohms Law), to increase wattage, in attempts to produce ever larger clouds. Instead of using a larger battery with more volts, using a less resistant coil allows for more energy to flow through the coils without having to increase the battery itself.
Sweet Spot - a combination of several variables that, when combined together, culminate in a more satisfying vape. These variables most commonly include voltage, wattage, resistance, and the ejuice being vaped.
Tank - a threaded reservoir that holds considerably more-liquid than cartridges/pods, and contains no absorbent filler material (this is purchased seperately with the coil). Essentially vape tanks, also known as atomizers hold the ejuice to be heated ( the heat comes from a separate part of the tank with the coil).The tank also is the componant that houses the coil as well as e-liquid
TC - Temperature Control: With the Temperature Control (TC) feature of your vape mod allows you to set your coil temperature and will a limit as well as adjustor even as a protection cut-off the power. to the coil until the temperature falls below your setting and it's save to resume vaping.
Throat Hit - the sensation a vaper may experience when vapor hits the back of their throat. Many new vapers will need to adjust wattage on different juices for a smooth hit. PG is resposible for the throat hit in in vaping, high VG ratios produce little, throat hit sensation but mostly hard hits are from the wattage of the vapor. Another contributor is Nicotine content and even certain flavors. Citrus, menthol, and cinnamon can all amplify the feeling of a throat hit.
Topping Off - adding a few drops of e-liquid into a refillable cartridge or tank.
Top fill - Is a vaporizor that fills from the top. It can be a slide and lock, threaded, hinge and lock or flip and lock.
Unprotected Battery - any lithium-based battery that has no protective circuit or features to safeguard against overcharging.
Vaper - refers to a user of a vaporizer.
Vape Pen - These pen-shaped devices have small sub-ohm tanks, they ae relatively easy to use and they travel very well. Pens are popular with newer vapers as many times they can emulate hand to mouth as they used to do with analogs. Offered in multiple styles. The most common form would be an eGo style battery with a disposable Clearomizer (ce4). These are commonly found in gas stations and head shops are the second most introductory next to disposable cig-a-likes. While they are available in a sub-ohm format, not all vape pens are sub-ohm.
Vapor - the non-combustable steam-like fog produced by the atomization of e-liquid in a vaporizer. Vapor, which simulates smoke, with far fewer health risks than those associated with burning tobacco products, providing users with a much safer alternative.
Vaporizer - a vaporizer is a device which converts a liquid into a gas or vapor. Vaporizer is another term used to describe an electronic cigarette, ecig or PV.
Vapor Production - Refers the amount of vapor that is produced when an e-liquid is heated. Factors include the composition of the e-liquid (VG/PG), as well as the type of device used.
Vaping - the act of using an electronic cigarette, named so because of vaping’s production of vapor, rather than the smoke produced by cigarettes and other more traditional, burned tobacco products.
VG (Vegetable Glycerin) - Contributes to vapor production and is a colorless, viscous (thick) organic compound that acts as a diluent, or filler, and is a common ingredient found in e-liquid, as well as many food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical products. Glycerin has a light, sweet taste, low toxicity, and is thicker than Propylene Glycol. Glycerin is used at higher ratios in juices when thicker, richer vapor production is desired or where a PG sensitivity of the user is present.
Voltage - refers to the electrical potential of a power source.
VV (Variable Voltage) - any vape device that gives the vaper control over the voltage and output of the device, allowing the vaper to adjust the temperature that the atomizer heats to.
VW (Variable Wattage) - any advanced vape device that gives the vaper control over the wattage, or power used by their device, allowing the user to adjust the temperature that the atomizer heats to.
Watt (wattage) - The amount of power consumed at the atomizer coil used to vaporize an e-liquid the higher the wattage the more heat delivered.
Wick - a wick is any material that soaks e-juice through a reservoir and delivers it to the coil. Most sub-ohm coils use wicks made from cotton, but wicks can be made from steel mesh, ceramic materials.
Wicking - see Wick
Wire - see Resistance Wire
Choosing Vaping Hardware
Choosing a type of vape device can be complicated. Essentially it's all about you and what you'd like your experience to be. If you're a newbie and looking for a simple solution we'd recommend starting with a closed system prefilled pod device such as a Myle, Phix or Juno. You can also go with refillable devices; this vaping option opens up the whole ejuice catalog with vape devices like the Breeze, Suorin or Panda. Both of these closed systems are super easy to operate with the simple of the simple being the prefilled pod option. If you're looking for options in the beginner-intermediate range we’d recommend a sub-ohm tank system. This option is very user-friendly for a great vape experience with options galore. You can choose different coils; sub-ohm tanks and many of these devices come in starter kits. If you're looking to move through he vape world and learn how to be an advanced user where huge clouds and the best flavor is important to you and you don’t mind making your own coils, there are the rebuildable options. For the best performance and an big embrace with vape lifestyle, we recommend an RTA, RDA or a Squonk, with the RTA and RDA being nice money savers in the long run..
For vape newbies keep in mind that wattage is important! If you've switched you realize that taking a puff is not like taking a drag, a nice wattage to start with on adjustable temp mods is 45-55 watts, this will give you decent flavor and nice clouds. Also for the vape newbies who've just switched, a “mouth to lung” draw style is more than likely how you will start and vaping at low wattages will help this with a sub-ohm set-up. Keep in mind some vape devices will produce a lot of vapor or "clouds", the sub-ohm and rebuildable options are not for those trying to be discreet..
Price is a definite factor as well as convenience. Owning a vape device will always be the cheaper option than the old way so maybe purchasing a pre-made coil for a sub-ohm tank may be better than being a coil builder or even purchasing prefilled pods. Take your time when making a decision, do and ask questions to your new vaper friends! The research should give you a good idea of what will works best, Remember, if you’re brand new to vaping, a closed device may be the best or better option, but you may find that sub-ohm tanks with your preferred coil will probably give you a very balanced experience of flavor and clouds. The Bottom-line is to enjoy your vape experience and find harmony with the choice you've made.
A box mod is a type of APV that’s shaped like a box, these come in either mechanical or adjustable configurations. Some box mods are capable of housing up to four 18650 batteries. Typically wider, some users prefer these over tube mods for their shorter (and more portable pocketand purse fitting) length. Box mods are also more powerful than their Vape Pen counterparts, with power outputs ranging from 20 watts to 200 watts.
What is with Watts?
Mods are capable of providing varying degrees of power to the consumer. If a consumer is looking to push vapor production, it is recommended to get a high wattage device (80watt+) in order to utilize low sub-ohm coils on the market that require more power. Getting a device with more power sometimes is always a safer bet as the user can always turn the power down if they do not require it. When a consumer needs more power than their current device can push, they will usually not have many options but to upgrade to a new device that can push the level of wattage that they want.
Some mods can house 2+ batteries to provide extended battery life. While a customer may not use all 200+ watts that usually comes with bigger devices, it will allow them to have more time in between charges. More batteries/bigger batteries will result in a bigger device which may not be suited for everyone's needs. Internal batteries will eventually die, requiring the consumer to purchase a whole new device when that happens. External batteries will allow the consumer to continuously use the device even after their cells die, as they can just purchase more batteries separately. This also introduces the concept of buying separate chargers, allowing a customer to have multiple sets of batteries that they can cycle, making it so that the time confined to a charger is minimal if non-existent.
Tanks and Atomizers
A tank is a combination of an atomizer and a reservoir for your e-liquid. The “tank” portion is really the part that holds the spare juice to feed it to the atomizer, but most people say tank to refer to the whole unit. Sometimes – as if to make things even more confusing – people say “tank atomizer.” The only devices that are atomizers but don’t work alongside a tank are “dripping atomizers,” which have a coil and wick that you directly drip e-liquid onto before vaping.
Most newer mods on the market will provide a form of TC. While this is actually very uncommon for the average consumer to use, it's just another level of adjustability given to the user. Most mods will support at least Nickel (ni) while other mods will offer modes of Titanium (ti), Stainless Steel (ss), and other wires types. While the addition of different modes is nice to have, it can also be overwhelming to new vapers. Those not specifically looking for temp control can still get these devices, but can potentially put their devices on the wrong setting if they are unsure of how to navigate the interface.
Choosing a Coil
Choosing a coil for a sub-ohm tak has become a breeze, honestly it's ultra easy. First, try to stick with your vape device manufacturer's brand, this will ensure the parts are compatable. Things to consider are usage, dependability, price, flavor and clouds. With coils being so easy to install (usually it's just a simple unscrewing of the old coil and adding the new) you'll need to measure the coil performance time, (how long before the coil started to taste "burnt") flavor and cloud production, which juice you used (be consistant in what juices you use as some ejuices will burn a coil quicker) and mark down your wattage you vaped at and ohms of the coil. Then it's simply finding out the one that worked best for you!
Advanced Vaping with Rebuildables, RTAs, RDAs and Squonking
This is the generic and all-inclusive term for any advanced atomizer that contains a deck upon which the user can mount their own coils and wicks (which are referred to as “builds”). Any atomizer with a ‘build deck’ — including all of the other specialized categories below can be called an RBA. There are also a lot of sub ohm tanks which use pre-made coils that can also offer the option of a RBA section. See Rebuildables.
Rebuildable tank atomizers (RTAs) are a lot like sub ohm tanks but with one crucial difference. Instead of using pre-made atomizer heads, you build your own coils to use on the device. Where on most vape tanks there would be a spot for the atomizer head, RTAs have an accessible chamber instead. This has two or more posts for you to connect your own coil, which you can make out of kanthal or another material like nickel or titanium (for temperature control vaping), and features small ports so you can set up a wick to draw e-liquid in from the tank. The performance is generally in line with sub ohm tanks, but the benefit is that you can tailor the performance to your preferences. If you’re happy with a more hands-on vaping experience, RTAs are just like sub ohm tanks but much cheaper to use in the long-run, because wire and wick is cheaper than replacement atomizer heads.
Rebuildable dripping atomizers (RDAs) have many of the money-saving benefits of RTAs but don’t include a tank. The “deck” with the posts for connecting your coils is essentially the whole device, and it’s covered with a cap and mouthpiece section. This gives great performance, but you can only drip so much e-juice onto the deck at once. This makes them a little less convenient to use than RTAs, but the setup is slightly easier because you have more space to work with and setting up the wicks is easier.
Squonk mods and 'squonking' has quickly become known as a new and innovative way to maximize flavor. Squonking mods are very similar to the performance offered by rebuildable dripping atomizers. With an RDA, you drip liquid directly into your atomizer.RDAs are popular because they make it very easy to switch between flavors and the process tends to produce denser clouds and bolder flavor than the traditional tank. The problem with RDAs is they can be messy and inconvenient - you have to constantly carry a bottle of e-liquid on you and the process of dripping can mean you end up with e-liquid all over your kit. Squonking offers the same performance but eliminates the need to actually drip each time by building a solution right into the design. Squonk mods are bottom-feeding and carry your e-liquid supply inside the mod, allowing you to directly feed e-liquid to the atomizer. The box mod has a small opening - called a squonk hole - that you squeeze to deliver a small amount of e-liquid to the atomizer and saturate the wick. When you release the pressure on the bottle, any excess will drip back into the bottle.
Choosing a Battery
High capacity. Depends on the battery's autonomy. Essentially, how long you will use your device without recharging. For this indicator it is possible to note LG HG2 3000 mAh.
High rated current. This indicator indicates the safety of the battery. The higher it is and the lower the heat, the higher the efficiency.
High voltage. Provides a high heating power of the atomizer, this affects the density of your vape clouds.
Low operating temperature. If a battery is overheated, it can become dangerous and can explode! The temperature itself affects the longevity of the battery. The lower the better.
As is the case with any technology, a plethora of options exist when it comes to vape accessories. The main reasons vapers purchase accessories are organization and to improve performance and longevity of their vape hardware. Remember, vaping is about the individual and tailoring your personal experience so, choose wisely in reference to what kind of accessories yoiu'll be needing based on no one but you! Below is a list of common vaping accessories:
Coil building Kits
Resin Drip Tips
