New to Vaping

What is vaping? Vaping is the act of inhaling vapour produced by a vapouriser (electronic cigarette). The vapour is produced by heating e-liquid.

What is a vapouriser? A vape (e-cigarette) is comprised of 3 parts; a coil, a tank and a battery.

What is a coil? The coil is where the vaping happens! This is located within the tank and is generally made up of a coil of wire surrounded by cotton. Coils are disposable and will need to be replaced, generally after 1-4 weeks dependent on usage. With less frequent use, you may find your coils lasting longer.

What is a tank?  The tank is used as a reservoir which holds the e-liquid, feeding it slowly into the coil.

What is a mod (battery)? Vaping mods are the powerhouse of your vapouriser. The mod is the battery component of your vape that provides the power to the coil. This in turn heats the coil, heating the liquid into a vapour. There are many different types of mods, some which are called 'regulated mods' which have the ability to change the power output, this will change how warm your vape is - which will affect the flavour and vapour produced.

E-Liquid: E-liquid or e-juice as it is sometimes called in NZ is the liquid that is used inside vaping devices that gets atomised (turned into vapour). E-liquid generally consists of three ingredients; propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerine (VG) and flavouring. E-liquid may also contain nicotine.
Here at VAPO we use only the highest quality ingredients consisting of VG, PG and food-grade flavouring. VAPO E-Liquid is manufactured to the highest standards in an ISO7 clean room here in New Zealand by Myriad Laboratories. All of our e-liquid is tested by an independent lab in Australia to ensure it is free of diacetyl and acetyl propionyl.

Getting started:

Priming the coil:

Every time you use a new coil, you need to 'prime' it. This is the act of soaking your coil in liquid, which will help preserve the life of the coil and ensure it doesn't burn out prematurely. To prime the coil, simply drop 2-3 drops of e-liquid directly down the centre of the coil, fill the tank all the way to the top and let it soak into the cotton for 15-20 minutes before usage.

Turning your vape on/off:

Most devices are turned on/off by clicking the fire button 3 or 5 times consecutively. We recommend to turn your vape off if you aren't using it to ensure it doesn't accidentally fire while not in use, which can lead to the coil burning out or batteries overheating.

How to vape: 

To start off vaping, make sure first that your coil is primed correctly. Begin inhaling and hold the fire button until you have finished your drag and then let go of the fire button. You never want the device to be firing while not inhaling through it as this will cause the coil to burn out prematurely.
