Great Clove Flavor

Got this along with the Vanilla Kretek type. While the vanilla one is a little more djarum type flavor, I actually prefer this one with the hint of orange flavor.

Djarum Flavor

Do like this vape, it's very similar to Djarum. Its a little light on the flavor so I might try it with a boost next time.

It's good.

I enjoy this. It's where I ended up after trying several different brands and flavors shortly after Volcano inexplicably turned thier Tobacco Pure flavor into a sented candle like flavor.

Choosing your first Vape Mod (Part I)

While most new vapers begin with a Kanger EMOW or a cigalike device, it doesn’t take long before the desire to experiment with new vaping equipment begins to take hold. As newbies become bombarded with terms like temperature control vaping, sub ohm vaping, and other strange phrases, it’s often difficult to know where to begin. A common first step into this strange new world is to turn to a more advanced regulated device, commonly called a “mod.”

What’s a Vape Mod?

In the “old days” before we had all of this wonderful vaping technology, the options for vaping devices were severely limited. Vapers were usually limited to a fixed-voltage device or a traditional Blu e-cig, for example. For those desiring more power and diversity in their vaping experience, they might “modify” their primitive vape pens by ripping them apart and using the coil, cartomizers, and other components in all sorts of other contraptions, like water pipes or even flashlights.

Any tubular device would do. These “mods” could very often be extremely unsafe, which has led to the vaping industry’s somewhat negative reputation of offering vaping devices that explode or blow up. As a result of all these unsafe vaping practices, manufacturers of vaping technology began to offer other alternatives, including devices that contain no circuitry whatsoever. These are called “mechanical mods,” which is a horse of a different color. Then we have the square-shaped technology called “box mods.” It can all be very confusing at first.

What you need to know.

The reason that there are so many different vape mods out there is because every vaper has different feature preferences for their vaping devices. Another factor of consideration is the price. Vape mods can range from $30 to as much as $200. Before comparing different mods, create a list of features that you truly must have.

  • What is your budget?
  • How often do you vape?
  • Do you batteries usually last all day long or for only a few hours?
  • Do you like massive clouds or is that less important?
  • Do you want extra-heated vapor?
  • Do you want variable-voltage?
  • Do you want variable-wattage?
  • Or perhaps you want both?
  • Do you need onboard charging via a USB port?
  • Do you need backlit display?

Depending on this laundry list of “must-haves,” you can then begin narrowing down your options. For example, if you are a somewhat infrequent vaper, then a vape mod with a built-in battery is more cost-efficient. Then again, if you choose a device with a user-replaceable battery, then you will need to learn about amperage and 18650, 18350, and other 18-Series batteries. (In the next post, we will discuss Regulated vs. Mechanical vape mods. Stay tuned.)
