Why Do E-Cigarette Bans Exist?

October 31, 2014 | 0 Comments

NEWS MAN 2 web

Fifty years after the historic 1964 Surgeon General’s report on smoking and health actually linked smoking to lung cancer for the first time, the U.S. is still experiencing the deaths of over 400,000 Americans due to smoking related illnesses each year. With technology being such a pivotal part of society, it’s disappointing to see such strong resistance to a breakthrough product that could possibly improve these sad statistics.

THE FACTS WE KNOW:

1. Over 43 million Americans smoke.

2. Americans buy more than 13 billion packs of cigarettes each year.

3. In the United States, the average cigarette tax is $1.53 per pack.

4. In 2014, $24.9 billion is expected to be received by the United States as a result of tobacco taxes.

5. Tobacco use costs the U.S. more than $133 billion in direct medical care & more than $156 billion in lost productivity each year.

6. Smoking is the number one preventable cause of death in the U.S., killing over 1,200 people per day.

7. People who attempt to quit smoking without professional help are approximately 60% more likely to report success if they use an e-cigarette, rather than over-the-counter nicotine replacement therapies or willpower alone.

So why do people want to ban e-cigarettes?

E-cigarettes are a technological breakthrough used by thousands of people all over the world as an alternative to smoking, and more importantly, as a satisfying tool that supports their efforts to quit. With worldwide tobacco sales totaling over $330 billion each year, the tobacco industry is one of the world’s most profitable industries in existence today. As e-cigarettes continue to rise in popularity, the e-cig industry also becomes a bigger threat to the abundance of money attached to tobacco. With practically limitless financial resources, Big Tobacco willingly funds “Anti-Ecig” campaigns and pays lobbyists to promote their efforts in eliminating the technology they’re up against. When you consider these points, in addition to the fact that government officials stand to lose billions in tobacco tax revenue each year, the reasons for pushback become very clear.

The FDA and CDC both strive to have the American society enjoy healthy, smoke-free lives and have set goals to achieve a societal reduction in smoking overall. Vaping, provided the potential benefits are actually acknowledged, is a direct avenue to achieve exactly what the FDA and CDC are striving for. Since e-cigarettes are battery operated and require zero combustion to take place, they do not produce any smoke at all. However, without conclusive case studies to outline the affects of vaping over a 10, 20 or even 30 year period - the FDA and CDC will not budge on their stance against e-cigs. Which leaves Big Tobacco with plenty of time to continue their mission of defeating the e-cigarette industry while simultaneously allowing the population to continue suffering from smoking related illnesses.

Since the production of new technology can’t be stopped, and so many people around the world long to find a better alternative, it’s clear that the e-cigarette industry is here to stay. So for ourselves, our families, and for our future generations, we must hold our appointed officials accountable to their required Oath Of Office. Promising to support and defend the U. S. Constitution, which begins with “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America,” it’s necessary that our appointed officials ask themselves one simple question. How does banning e-cigarettes based on a current lack of understanding, or before exploring their potential, “promote the general welfare”?

We have to place public health before financial interests of Big Tobacco.

The Solara DNA 30 By Beyond Vape

October 23, 2014 | 0 Comments

blog_beyond_vape_solara_dna_30_cover

Beyond Vape has quickly excelled past being only a retail location. Along with helping smokers transition to vaping, they’ve begun manufacturing and distributing hardware and accessories for the community to enjoy! The latest of which, is their eye-catching Solara DNA 30 box mod! Upon removing this quality device from its simplistic, yet sturdy packaging, the manufacturer’s high-standards are quickly appreciated. With a very balanced appearance, the clean and precise seam that lines the edge of this device allows you to appreciate its careful T6 aircraft grade aluminum construction right off the bat.

blog_beyond_vape_solara_dna_30_2

Once you turn this variable voltage and variable wattage device on, the Solara’s crystal clear OLED display screen will read “Evolv DNA” indicating the authenticity of the DNA 30 chip that’s providing the power regulated technology within the device. Evolv’s DNA 30 operates with a single lithium cell and offers controlled power from 7 to 30 watts with built in features including over and under-voltage protection, short circuit protection, as well as a thermal shutdown feature. The Solara features a 2600 mAh LiPo battery that can be charged by using the retractable USB cord that’s included with each device, but if the need to charge without losing the ability to vape ever arises, rest assured! The Solara features passthrough capabilities as well!

blog_beyond_vape_solara_dna_30_510

The Solara’s gold-plated, 4 to 5.5mm floating 510 connection will allow just about any atomizer to sit flush and, thanks to the technology found in the DNA 30 chip, perform exceptionally well! Found around the 510 connection, on the device’s actual frame itself, are two airflow grooves to ensure atomizers that are designed with lower airflow have an adequate air supply. The Solara also has minimal heat generation because of the battery vents which have been cleverly placed in the USB port and seam outlining the body of this box mod.

blog_beyond_vape_solara_dna_30_origin_setup

The Solara’s smooth exterior feels great in the hand and provides easy navigation of the three control buttons that protrude slightly from the device. Aside from firing your setup, these controls allow you to adjust your voltage and wattage settings, turn the display screen off, and activate the power lock mode which prevents unintentional power adjustments from taking place. Along with all of the great features found in the Solara DNA 30 box mod, Beyond Vape has also included a 1-year warranty if and when you need something repaired with the option of battery replacement service for a small fee! So you don’t have to worry about anything with your Solara, just simply choose the atty and the e-liquid you want to use, and enjoy everything this stylish box mod offers!

blog_apaka_epipe_lineup

The Southern California based Apaka Creations has carefully crafted works of art on several ePipe Mods previously, but now these hand carved and highly anticipated devices are finally back in-stock! After selecting the perfect ePipes based on their overall shape and color, or the kind of wood they’re made of, Art of Apaka Creations begins the very tedious process of transforming each individual ePipe into a completely original piece of art. With inspiration found in the simplest experiences and emotions, Art’s creations are far from random designs. They’re meaningful representations of the things he values most in life, and this time, we’ve got five unique themes to introduce!

blog_apaka_epipe_3_composite

The first of which is named Hope. From the rim on this one of a kind device down to the curved edge leading in to the base, long flowing lines have been carved around the mod to add depth and create character. The name Hope supports the elongated swirls and curved artwork on a few different levels, but primarily, it represents our journey through life. We’ve all heard the saying “life is full of ups and downs” – but staying hopeful and positive helps us get through “the downs” and allow us to appreciate “the ups” even more than before. Not only is this ePipe comfortable in the hands, it’s also a handheld reminder to stay positive!

blog_apaka_epipe_1_composite

To some the sun is seen as a symbol representing leadership, and understandably so, as the sun itself does play an important role when considering the big picture in life. In this Descendant piece, Art has fine tuned his interpretation of the sun symbol so that leadership ties in to the idea of our heritage. Found just below Art’s carving of the sun you’ll find waves, which represent respect. The thought behind adding waves to this piece was simply to show respect for our ancestors, which is something we can all relate to. Regardless of how much or how little is known of our family history, we have to identify the fact that none of us would be here today without our ancestors of yesteryears!

blog_apaka_epipe_4_composite

Carved on the bottom of this device is a simple hammerhead symbol that represents Strength, which also doubles as the device’s name. Think about the first time you walked into a local vape shop, it was a little nerve-racking right? It was for Art as well, and the strength he used to even entertain the idea of not smoking acted as inspiration for this piece. So along with the hammerhead symbol, waves have been included in this ePipe’s overall design to represent change. Or in this case, the successful transition from smoking to vaping!

blog_apaka_epipe_2_composite

The Guardian is an ePipe design that centers around family. Often acknowledged as the family’s protector, many cultures utilize tiki heads or faces to watch over their family’s safety. When observing the Guardian’s front side, a tiki face can be seen with its mouth open to introduce “a breath of life.” On either side of the device you’ll find that flax leaves have been carved into a layered pattern that represents a father and mother cradling or protecting their child while the tiki watches over the entire family. Once you step back and assess the mod with a deeper understanding of the art, it’s easy to see why Guardian was a perfect name!

blog_apaka_epipe_bottoms

The last design found in this series from Apaka Creations is known as Freedom. On the base of the ePipe, a manta ray can be found which also symbolically represents the actual name of this device. Similar to Strength, Freedom was established from Art’s personal experiences and the fact that he’s no longer smoking. Art felt a new sense of freedom once he was finally able to say goodbye to cigarettes for good, and as you move up the device, the appealing addition of bone supports that stance even further. Most ePipes are designed to house an 18350 battery, but with the bone extension, you’re free to use an 18490 instead! So whether you’re looking for a setup with a little more style or want something that carries more meaning, with a custom Apaka Creations ePipe Mod you can find satisfaction in having both!

This selection of hand carved, custom Apaka Creations ePipe Mods will be available in-store and online Friday, October 17th, at 11:00 am PST!

blog_le_petit_gros_v2_finish_options

When Version 1 of Vaponaute’s Le Petit Gros hit the market, vapers all over the world were captivated by its unique and compact design. With its recessed hybrid-style 510 connection and recessed bottom switch, the Petit’s entire design was developed to provide the community with a discreet, yet simply classy device.

blog_le_petit_gros_v2_brass_setup

Originally only available in a sleek stainless steel finish, the upcoming release of the V2 introduces the lightly brushed Petit made of brass. Since atomizers are usually constructed from stainless steel, the recessed atomizer connection provides the perfect opportunity to have a two-tone setup that carries an elegant and balanced appearance overall!

blog_le_petit_gros_v2_design_change

With very minimal constructive feedback from the community, Vaponaute had little to improve upon when reviewing the Petit’s original design and establishing the V2. However, there was just one simple adjustment that the community requested take place in future production runs of Le Petit Gros. So along with the additional finish, the French manufacturer has slightly redesigned the rim around the recessed connection to feature small indents that allow the Petit to accommodate atomizers with lower airflow, such as the Kayfun Lite Plus.

blog_le_petit_gros_v2_SS_setup

Aside from the two simple points discussed above, every characteristic of the Petit remains completely untouched. The device itself still stands at just 56mm tall, the 510 connection and recessed button maintained their brass construction for efficient conductivity, the aesthetically appealing air vents kept the same look and location, and the inside of the switch is still home to both the device and company name, as well as the device’s serial number engravings. So for those in need of a mechanical mod, consider the possibilities with a discreet device that has subtle style and an excellent reputation!

The V2 of Vaponaute’s Le Petit Gros will be available in-store and online Thursday, October 9th, at 11:00 am PST!

Le Petit Gros V2 Specifications:

  • Manufactured In France By Vaponaute
  • 56mm Mechanical Device
  • Dedicated 18350 Battery Tube
  • Stainless Steel & Brass Construction
  • Finishes: Brushed Stainless Steel Or Brushed Brass
  • Recessed Brass Hybrid-Style 510 Connection
  • Recessed Connection Accommodates Attys Up To 22mm In Design
  • Laser Engravings: Switch Internals Read “Vaponaute” “Le Petit Gros” & Device Serial Number

The Luxurious Jewelry Tips by BDM

October 7, 2014 | 0 Comments

blog_BDM_drip_tips_silver_stamp

Although there are plenty of different devices and atomizers to choose from, those hardware items don’t just support your decision to make a lifestyle change, they’re also an extension of your individuality and personal style. That being said, many of us attempt to customize our setups so that they showcase a portion of personality while also serving a purpose. The most common approach to customization, without a doubt, begins with a simple drip-tip selection. Drip-tips are an essential component of every setup and are available in a range of sizes, materials, colors, shapes, and designs. However, there are very few drip-tips in existence as unique and aesthetically intricate as the jewelry-like tips made by the German manufacturer known as BDM.

blog_BDM_drip_tips_de_yellowed

BDM’s line of high-end accessories weren’t designed to be just another drip-tip though, they were designed with the sole purpose of appealing to your personal style. Starting with the overall design, BDM’s jewelry tips are available in four different styles: short, flare, straight, and tulip. Since each individual mouthpiece is comprised of three separate components, “jewelry tip style” simply refers to the tip and base, not the barrel itself. So once your style selection has been made, their extensive line of luxurious solid silver and gold-plated silver barrels will become your focus.

blog_BDM_drip_tips_silver_lineup

Like the process used when manufacturing jewelry, these intricately designed barrels have been cast from sterling silver and are available in a wide variety of appealing themes for you to choose from. From the fleur-de-lis inspired “Lily”, to the mechanically inspired “Steampunx” barrel, BDM provides a fine selection of swank styles that easily appeal to ladies or gentlemen looking for a lavish and eye-catching accessory to place upon their device.

blog_BDM_drip_tips_gold_lineup

With the exception of the sterling silver Ray, and the gold-plated Tilapia, each of the various BDM barrel themes are available in your choice of a gold or silver finish. Which is just another option that supports your ability to customize your BDM mouthpiece, and more importantly, to fine-tune the amount of personal flair you’d like your device to have. So whether you’re looking for something that represents your style, or you’d like something that ties in with the theme of your device, BDM has done an excellent job at giving you a variety of options!

FB_BDM_tips_siler_series_lineup

The Gold and Silver Series jewelry tips introduce a level of luxury to an accessory that is often produced with simplicity in mind. Although it hasn’t been done before, it’s refreshing to see that there are manufacturers who are willing to try something different, and in turn, provide the ever-growing vape community with a new and exciting accessory to consider! For those who appreciate things of a unique nature, for those who don’t want what everyone else has, and for those who enjoy making a statement, this intriguing jewelry tip selection by BDM is your perfect opportunity to have exactly that!

The Gold & Silver Series Jewelry Tips by BDM will be available exclusively online this Thursday, October 9th, at 11:00 am PST.

BDM Jewelry Tip Specifications:

The Vapor Flask V2

September 30, 2014 | 0 Comments

blog_vapor_flask_V2_colorway_options

The Vapor Flask was an instant smash hit in the vape community when it released earlier this year. With a creative design, massive battery supply, and feature-rich DNA 30 chip, it’s easy to see why it quickly became so popular. In the wake of the Vapor Flask’s release there has been a significant number of vapers left wanting one since the situation arose where demand far outweighed supply. The company that manufactured the Vapor Flask decided to address this issue instead of leaving people to fight for the product in the secondary market, which led to the development of the Vapor Flask V2 that offers a few key enhancements to the original design.

blog_vapor_flask_V2_silver_setup

Before addressing the differences between Version 1 and 2, it’s worth revisiting the design and functionality of the Vapor Flask since it is so different from the majority of other devices. The Vapor Flask gets its name from its resemblance to a traditional liquor flask. Although this gives it a fairly intriguing appearance, the main purpose of this design is not solely for looks. The curved body of the Vapor Flask makes it highly ergonomic, form fitting, and incredibly comfortable to use. Its structure allows one side to rest perfectly in the palm of your hand and the button is positioned in a way that allows it to be activated effortlessly. In addition, its shape allows it to fit easily into a pant or coat pocket.

blog_vapor_flask_V2_screen_macro

Perhaps one of the most valuable features of the Vapor Flask is the Evolv DNA 30 chip which has been integrated into the device. The DNA 30 is the brains behind the Vapor Flask and allows it to be incredibly versatile, providing a highly customizable vaping experience. Regardless of what type of vaper you are, with the DNA 30’s capacity to pump out a staggering 30 watts of power and handle atomizer resistances down to 0.5 ohm, the Vapor Flask will be able to accommodate your needs. An appreciated consideration taken with the design of the Vapor Flask is that the display screen for the DNA 30 is positioned on the device’s top surface, making it very easy to read during operation.

blog_vapor_flask_V2_black_setup_atomizer_flush

To complement the well-rounded functionality supplied by the DNA 30 chip, the Vapor Flask features high quality components and a durable construction. It has a unibody structure which is constructed from solid 6061 aluminum. The aluminum is available in three anodized finish options, including clear (silver appearance), gunmetal, and black. Since a device’s 510 connector is subjected to constant wear from threading and unthreading atomizers, the Vapor Flask utilizes a stainless steel 510 connector for improved longevity. Housed within the 510 connector is a spring-loaded brass contact which provides a stable and efficient connection with an attached atomizer. Since the Vapor Flask features a 22mm profile, it pairs exceedingly well with any number of 22mm atomizers.

blog_vapor_flask_V2_black_setup_atomizer_battery_caps

With all of these features being included in the Vapor Flask V1, it’s impressive that the modders even found anything to be improved upon, but they did. While Version 1 operated using dual 18650 batteries which were permanently integrated into the device’s body, Version 2 has been modified to allow for the batteries to be removed! Now if you’re on the go and you aren’t able to utilize the Vapor Flask’s pass-through functionality, you can simply swap out the two 18650 batteries for two that are freshly charged. Also, the two brass battery compartment covers add a nice aesthetic element to the device’s overall appearance. In addition to having removable batteries, the firing button of the Vapor Flask V2 has been upgraded from aluminum to solid stainless steel and it now features a Vapor Flask logo which is engraved into the device’s bottom surface.

blog_vapor_flask_V2_button_macro

Although there were only a few changes included with the Vapor Flask V2, they are fairly significant which make it an even more impressive device than it already was. With unique styling, an ergonomic design, versatile DNA 30 functionality, and an enormous power supply with removable batteries, the Vapor Flask V2 will appeal to any vaper. Whether you enjoy massive clouds or are a flavor connoisseur, the Vapor Flask V2 has everything you need to get the most out of your vaping experience!

The Vapor Flask V2 will be available in-store and online this Wednesday, October 1st, at 11:00 am PST.

The Droplet & Water Series Elm by Element Mods

September 30, 2014 | 0 Comments

blog_element_mods_water_series_droplet_cover

When it comes to vape hardware there are a few select companies that continue to release a variety of products while maintaining a consistently high level of quality and appeal amongst vapers. Due to production in the ever-growing vape industry, it has become more difficult to offer hardware that is well made, provides consistent performance, and distinguishes itself from the large number of similar products on the market. With dedication for customer satisfaction, quality standards, and passion for performance, Element Mods has become one of these distinct companies that almost effortlessly meets consumer expectations. Following the success of the Tree of Life, Ember, and Elm to name a few, Element Mods is continuing its legacy of impressive hardware with the release of the Droplet and introduction of the Water Series.

blog_element_mods_water_series_droplet_18350

As with the Timber of the Earth Series and the Bonfire of the Fire Series, the Droplet is a mechanical device that utilizes the reliable, powerful, and beautiful Element Mods design. The Droplet is constructed from solid 303 stainless steel and uses dedicated battery tubes which help to improve conductive efficiency by eliminating any unnecessary threaded components. Similar to those of its predecessors, the Droplet features a highly reliable spring-loaded bottom firing switch which is equipped with a reverse threaded locking ring for safety purposes.

blog_element_mods_water_series_droplet_490and350

Upon closer inspection of the Droplet’s top cap, noticeable modifications to the atomizer venting system become apparent. To supply air to bottom fed atomizers, the Droplet features small holes that channel through the top cap to the 510 connector. The positive contact housed within the 510 connector itself, as well as the negative contact, are constructed from solid copper. Also, the positive contact is telescopic to adjust for slight variations in battery length and easily eliminates battery rattle. A noticeable feature found in the switch housing is the word “Water” and a serial number, both of which have been engraved into its inner surface. Which is a trademark characteristic found on all authentic Element Mods devices.

blog_element_mods_water_series_droplet_new_logo

One feature of devices by Element Mods that varies from series to series is the design of the machining found on the top cap and locking ring, and the Droplet is no exception. To tie in the water theme, the top cap and locking ring of the Droplet have been machined with smooth, oval shaped impressions that seem to emulate the look of water droplets. The Water Series is further represented by a creative Droplet emblem which has been precisely engraved into each dedicated battery tube. These aesthetic features are unique to the Droplet, although they do share similar characteristics which make the device easily recognizable as being an Element Mods product. It is not easy to translate branding across several products without a common logo, but Element Mods found a way to do this and do it exceedingly well.

blog_element_mods_water_series_droplet_elm_v2

Along with the Droplet, Element Mods fans will be excited to hear that there is a complementing Water Series version of the Elm RDA releasing alongside it. For those who aren’t familiar, the Elm is an incredibly well engineered hybrid rebuildable dripping atomizer. It features a three post design, ample sized drip well, a remarkably effective adjustable airflow system, and a removable top cap lid for easy dripping. The Water Series Elm shares the same design elements as the Droplet so that when the two are paired together they create a seamless setup with flawless looks and impeccable performance. Then all you have to do is top this combo off with an Element Mods drip-tip and you will have created a setup of epic proportions!

The Caravela Drip-Tanks & Silver Series Caravela

September 25, 2014 | 0 Comments

social_media_caravela_silver_silver_setup

The majority of vapers around the world have heard of Caravela Mods. This somewhat elusive company from Portugal has established itself as one of the premier hardware manufacturers in the vape industry, with incredibly intense demand for its products that has not subdued since the company released its first product. Caravela products are so sought after because they are produced in extremely limited quantities, manufactured with immensely accurate precision from high quality materials, and are some of the best performing products on the market. Caravela Mods takes its time when designing a product to ensure that it is engineered to a level nearing perfection, which translates to pure enjoyment and satisfaction for the owner. There were only 999 original Caravela devices ever produced, which in turn made them extremely desirable. As a response to the seemingly endless number of vapers that wanted to own a little piece of Caravela, the company decided to design and produce a handful of Special Series products. Although these don’t belong to the original 999, they are equally impressive and still a Caravela nonetheless. The most recent, and perhaps the most opulent, Special Series to be released is the luxurious Silver Series Caravela.

The name of the Silver Series Caravela does not refer to the device’s polished silver appearance, but rather to its construction from solid silver. It is a mechanical device that is almost entirely machined from silver. From its caps and tubing, right down to the contacts and switch spring, every metal component of the Silver Series Caravela is 100% silver. Not only does this make the device amazingly beautiful, but it also allows it to boast of superior performance since silver is an extremely conductive metal. The level of care and quality of craftsmanship becomes blatantly apparent first when you hold the Silver Series Caravela, and furthermore when you fire the device for the first time. The switch operation is fluid with just the right amount of tension, the threading is pristine, and the performance is second to none. All of this goes to support the thought that the Silver Series Caravela is a work of art in an aesthetic, mechanical, and design sense.

As if the device wasn’t enough on its own, each Silver Series Caravela also includes a hybrid Vela Latina tank atomizer. Just like the Caravela device, the Vela Latina is also constructed from solid silver and includes a silver Caravela drip tip, which is specifically designed for use with the Vela Latina. Although it may look relatively ordinary, the Vela Latina is much more than a generic tank atomizer. As much as it strives to produce quality hardware, Caravela engineered the Vela Latina to provide a thoroughly enjoyable vaping experience, characterized by the most pure and intense flavor possible. To accomplish this feat, Caravela Mods designed the Vela Latina to operate utilizing a disposable 306 dripping atomizer, which integrates into a fairly sophisticated tank system.

The benefit of using a 306 atomizer is that they are reliable, produce flavorful vapor, and are very easy to replace. This opens up the door for people to use the Caravela who aren’t familiar with rebuilding or simply don’t want to deal with it. Although 306 atomizers perform well on their own, Caravela developed an e-liquid feeding system for the Vela Latina to generate the cleanest and most accurate tasting vapor possible. This is made possible in part by the Vela Latina’s unique drip tip. The tip features a tube protruding from its base which serves as retainer for stainless steel mesh. When the 306 atomizer needs to be resaturated with e-liquid, tilting the Vela Latina at an upside down angle will allow e-liquid to flow from the tank and onto the stainless steel mesh. The mesh acts like a sponge and slowly drips e-liquid onto the 306 atomizer for it to then be vaped. Since the 306 atomizer isn’t constantly submerged in e-liquid it operates more efficiently and produces vapor that is more flavorful. A secondary benefit of this system is that it also increases the lifespan of the 306 atomizer since it is not constantly exposed to e-liquid.

Along with the Silver Series Caravela, the company is also releasing a 510 version of the Vela Latina called the Caravela Drip Tank. Unlike the Silver Series Vela Latina, the Caravela Drip Tank is constructed from high quality stainless steel and is available in a lightly brushed or polished version. Aside from the 510 connector, the Caravela Drip Tank has the same exact design of the Vela Latina, including the intelligent e-liquid feeding system. In addition, each Caravela Drip Tank includes a Caravela drip tip in the matching finish of the atomizer itself.

The 510 connector of the Caravela Drip Tank opens up a whole new world of possibilities when it comes to setups. With a classy and timeless appearance, the Caravela Drip Tank pairs exceptionally well with any number of 22mm devices. This allows you to enjoy all the quality and the amazing vaping experience of the Vela Latina with your device of choice.

The last pieces of this impressive wave of products from Caravela Mods are the new drip tip designs the company has produced. They range in style and are constructed from various materials, but all feature an engraved Caravela Mods logo and are manufactured to the same quality specs as all other Caravela products. Several of these drip tips, including some that utilize blown glass, have been designed to work with the Vela Latina or the Caravela Drip Tank, allowing you to add a unique touch to your already stunning Caravela setup.

Regardless of what type of vaper you are or what type of hardware you prefer, you will surely be able to appreciate the perfection and beauty of a Caravela Mods product. Whether it be the sheer luxury of a Silver Series Caravela, the reliable performance of a Caravela Drip Tank, or the individuality of a new Caravela drip tip, all of these items can be characterized by masterful construction and accomplished engineering. Caravela Mods is at the pinnacle of the vaping echelon, and once you experience any of these amazing products for yourself you’ll understand why so many vapers go to great lengths to get their hands on one. Beauty, performance, and design are all areas where Caravela Mods excels, categorizing the company in a class of its own.

The Silver Series Caravela & Caravela Drip Tanks will be available in-store and online Friday, September 26th, at 11:00 am PST.

VapeRev X ECC X 2014

blog_ecc_2014_convention_center

It comes as no surprise that the e-cig industry is bigger now than it has ever been before, but attending the 2nd Annual Electronic Cigarette Convention was truly an eye-opening experience. This year, the event took place at the Ontario Convention Center in Southern California over the course of three days – and in that time, over 35,000 people from all over the world walked through the convention center doors. Once inside, the thousands of vapers who were able to attend the convention had their choice of over 300 vendors to visit. The almost overwhelming variety of e-liquid companies, hardware manufacturers, apparel brands, retail stores, and distribution representatives had transformed over 100,000 sq. feet of plain exhibit space into a surreal vape extravaganza for consumers to enjoy!

As a Diamond Sponsor of ECC 2013 & 2014, we had the pleasure of presenting ourselves alongside ten other outstanding brands in our very own ballroom. The VapeRev Ballroom was a 10,000 sq. ft. space where anyone could sample flavors, purchase products, ask questions, or simply relax with a drink throughout their ECC experience. After the excitement of jaw-dropping presentations, special guests, promotions and giveaways began to subside, the whirlwind of ECC inevitably came to an end. The convention was, without a doubt, an amazing opportunity to interact with the vape community, establish new relationships, catch up with existing colleagues, but more importantly, simply enjoy the moment in good company. With that said, we’d like to thank each and every one of you who took the time to attend ECC 2014, we had an amazing time, and hope you did as well!
