Whether an e-cig user or not, it is safe to assume very few people enjoy having vapor blown directly in their face. Many of us may do this accidentally from time-to-time, which although unintentional, can still be perceived as disrespectful by those affected. This is an occurrence that should be addressed, therefore in this latest installment of ‘Vape Etiquette,’ our dear friend Hugh highlights the importance of directing our vapor away from those around us. Enjoy!

The Anima by Atmomixani

April 9, 2014 | 0 Comments

atmomixani-anima-blog-0047

To many vape enthusiasts out there, size plays an important role when selecting an atomizer or device. This, along with aesthetics, design, and functionality, are the main factors considered when in the market for new equipment. Generally speaking, an atomizer or device is usually strong in one or two of these categories, but rarely all. The Anima by Atmomixani is an enigma in this regard, having an incredibly sleek look, impressive functionality, a unique design, and to top it off all of these attributes are packed into a surprisingly compact size.

With a diameter measuring a mere 17mm, the Anima is essentially a smaller version of Atmomixani’s Striker, minus a few key differences. This is quite an accomplishment because anyone familiar with the Striker knows that it is incredibly versatile as well as feature-rich, and including these qualities in a more compact atomizer is not simple by any means. In order to accomplish this, Atmomixani needed to get creative with many design aspects of the Anima.

atmomixani-anima-blog-0044

One common element of most rebuildable dripping atomizers is a tri-post atomizer deck which allows for dual-coil builds. Including this in a limited amount of space to work with is a challenge, however one that Atmomixani successfully overcame. This was achieved by engineering the Anima to operate with wicks that align vertically, instead of horizontally. RDA enthusiasts will appreciate this because the Anima has the ability to generate generous amounts of vapor with intense flavor, which is helped in part by its condensed atomizing chamber.

The level of innovation embedded into the Anima doesn’t end with its atomizer deck, however. One of the most-remarkable features of this atty is its dual-purpose connector. The Anima’s baseplate, which houses the 510 connector, can be removed to reveal a native hybrid connection for the Atmomixani Nemi. This is an amazing component considering that hybrid connections normally restrict an atomizer to pair with only one device. Atmomixani recognized this and opted to make the Anima capable of working with any device with 510 connectivity.

Similar to the Striker, the Anima has an adjustable airflow ring integrated into its top cap. In addition to having vents for dual-coil builds, it has air holes varying in sizes for single-coil setups as well, making it easy to customize the vaping experience for maximum satisfaction. Regardless of whether a single or dual-coil setup is used, the Anima performs on the high level we have come to expect from all Atmomixani products.

atmomixani-anima-blog-0043

One of the many areas where Atmomixani excels is their inherent ability to produce high-performance products which have a stunning visual appeal to match. This is a trait in which Atmomixani is known for, but even they outdid themselves with the Anima. In short, it has impeccable style and beauty. It is available in a vast number of finish options including both brushed and polished versions which utilize stainless steel, or a combination of stainless steel and brass.

When paired together in hybrid mode, the Anima and Nemi make an incredibly captivating combination which is difficult to look away from. Their fit is seamless to the extent that it becomes tricky to distinguish where one ends and the other begins. In addition, the Anima is the first Atmomixani product to feature machine engravings. Although difficult to do cleanly, the Anima is embellished by flawless etchings of the Atmomixani locomotive emblem and unique serial number.

atmomixani-anima-blog-0048

Atmomixani didn’t leave anything to chance with the Anima. It has collection-quality looks, powerful performance capability, and several unique features which already separate it from many other rebuildable dripping atomizers. However, staying true to Atmomixani form, they wanted to complete the puzzle. Therefore, with the Anima’s release comes a new line of Atmomixani mouthpieces. These drip tips have design qualities to match those of the Anima and are also available in stainless steel or brass, making them a perfect complement to an already attractive atomizer.

atmomixani-anima-blog-0049

The Anima is something special without question. It doesn’t matter what qualities you look for in an atomizer, the Anima has them all. It isn’t solely an atty which has incredible features and performance, the Anima is a work of art, making it a prized possession for both new and experienced vapers alike.

 As a proud sponsor of the 2014 Targa Trophy Experience San Diego Event Series & German Car Festival, we wanted to give you a quick glimpse of our amazing experience!

0017

As the second Targa Trophy event we’ve sponsored and participated in, we kind of had an idea of what to expect as we made our way to HRE Wheels in Vista, California. Pulling in to the parking lot instantly confirmed our beliefs for the day. There were hundreds of exotic cars spread across the lot, 145 of which were scheduled to participate in the road rally portion of the event.

0034

0004

While car enthusiasts explored everything the German Car Festival had to offer, drivers scheduled to participate had to sign-in and register for the rally! VapeRev had three different Porsches ready to roll for this year’s Experience San Diego Event Series! A GT3 RS, a Panamera Turbo, and a 911. The Panamera Turbo was set to be the camera car capturing our experience on the road, and we’ll get to those photos soon!

0033

While the sponsorship decals, courtesy of Wrap Works, were being applied to the cars, German Car Festival attendees had plenty of time to do their thing; snapping photos, mingling with other guests, and sampling the delicious flavors we had at our signature juice tasting bar!

0008

0002

As the car show portion of the event came to end, drivers prepared to head out and experience San Diego! Once we were given the go ahead, we fell in line to wait for our turn to take off from the HRE Wheels starting line! Spectators surrounded the starting line and cheered the drivers on as they left Vista and set out for the Hard Rock Hotel in beautiful Downtown San Diego!

0031

0029

Once out on the open road, drivers got down to business. Throughout the course of the rally, seven checkpoints had to be met, and there was no time to be wasted! We quickly moved from one to the next, until we came across about thirty other Targa participants flagging us down to warn of a roadblock in-between us and our next checkpoint.

SD 7

We decided to turn ourselves around and find an alternate route. Although we were separated from the pack, we enjoyed the opportunity to let loose and enjoy the scenic drive to San Diego.

When we arrived to our final destination, the Hard Rock Hotel, the Downtown streets were lined with cars covered in Targa Trophy sponsorship decals. Once our completion time was recorded, we were free to relax before the awards ceremony! The Grand Prize winner received a trophy and a $3,000 audio system!

0028

0021

After the ceremony, everyone associated with the event was invited to celebrate its success at the Hard Rock’s infamous Float Nightclub. After an extremely exhilarating ride throughout San Diego County, nothing sounded better than having a good time in the company of great people! From start to finish, the entire experience was one we’ll never forget!

The #IMPROOF King Collaboration

April 3, 2014 | 0 Comments

Synergy is a beautiful thing, and although it can be an elusive accomplishment in business, when two entities are able to achieve this type of partnership the results are truly remarkable. That being said, we now have the pleasure of introducing a collaboration between Surefire Vapor and the #IMPROOF Movement. #IMPROOF was founded as a platform to provide vapers with a means of sharing their stories and highlighting a better lifestyle through vaping. Giving up cigarettes for good is a difficult task, but insight gained through the #IMPROOF Movement offers hope that anyone can make a successful transition from smoking to vaping. Eager to show support for this movement, Surefire Vapor teamed up with #IMPROOF to produce a Limited Edition King Mod. 

improof-king-006

The collaboration #IMPROOF King is the newest addition to an already esteemed lineup of mechanical devices from Surefire, but with one key difference. A portion of the proceeds from each #IMPROOF King sold will be donated to the #IMPROOF Movement. #IMPROOF will use these contributions to purchase e-cigarette starter kits, which will then be given away to people who are looking to switch from smoking to vaping.

improof-king-001

In addition to supporting #IMPROOF’s cause, the #IMPROOF King is a spectacular device in itself. It has the same feature-rich design which the King is known for, including solid copper contacts, a knurled reverse-threaded locking ring, recessed bottom switch, and several more. The #IMPROOF King has a rather unique appearance. It is constructed from solid brass which is then dusted, giving it subtle matte finish that shimmers slightly in certain light. Staying true to traditional Surefire form, the #IMPROOF King features clean laser engravings of the Surefire logo which is located on the switch. While engravings of the King emblem and serial number both reside on the 18350 tube. The final aesthetic touch to this already beautiful piece is made by the #IMPROOF logo, also engraved on the 18350 tube.

improof-king-007

The #IMPROOF King provides vapers with the opportunity to not only enjoy a fantastic mechanical mod, but also support the #IMPROOF Movement and its goal in spreading awareness about the vaping lifestyle. The #IMPROOF King makes a statement, not only that you are a vaper with good taste, but also someone who supports others who are trying to find a better life through vaping.

The Limited Edition #IMPROOF Dusted Brass Knurled King Mod will be available in-store and online at VapeRev Friday, April 4th, at 11:00am PST.

As vaping becomes a more significant aspect of our society, the way in which vapers are acknowledged will undoubtedly shift.

There are people out there who don’t want to date a smoker, but they may not feel the same way about somebody who vapes.

Gaining Access to the Elm

March 28, 2014 | 0 Comments

elm-dripper-cover

Anyone who is familiar with rebuildable dripping atomizers knows that the wicks regularly require an additional supply of e-liquid to keep them saturated and prevent dry hits. This process isn’t difficult or time consuming by any means, but there are certain situations where it may become messy or tedious. This is because most dripping atomizers require you to remove the entire top cap in order to gain access to the atomizer deck. The Elm by Element Mods introduces a innovative solution to this by featuring a removable top cap lid. This lid easily separates from the top cap, providing quick access to the atomizer deck. This makes re-saturating your wicks simple, fast, and mess-free! It also means that you won’t have to realign the air holes or potentially alter the construction of your build! It’s a seemingly small modification to the normal RDA design, but it makes using the Elm fun, hassle-free, and incredibly enjoyable!

The Copper Stingray by JD Tech

March 27, 2014 | 0 Comments

JD-Stingray-copper-07

When you’re looking for a new device, what attributes factor into your decision? Is it the physical appearance, the functionality, or possibly the materials used in construction that helps to narrow your focus? Whether a beginning or experienced vaper, choosing a mod from the array of options can sometimes be a little daunting. However, JD Tech has simplified the process with the Copper Stingray, which is a stunning culmination of quality materials, top-notch functionality, and killer good looks.

JD-Stingray-copper-04

Following the widespread success of previous Stingray editions, JD Tech pulled out all the stops for the copper version. At its heart, it has all the same features that the Stingray is known for, including silver-plated copper contacts, stainless steel accented bottom switch and top cap, standard-threaded locking ring, and many more. But what distinguishes this model is the sheer beauty of it.

JD-Stingray-copper-02

The main tubing is constructed from solid copper, which is then polished to expose a highly-reflective finish featuring subtle hues of red and orange. To complete the astonishing look of this device, it also includes a matching copper and stainless steel mouthpiece. Copper mods are already hard to come by, but this Stingray is officially a collector’s item with the production run being limited to only 1000 pieces.

JD-Stingray-copper-05

JD-Stingray-copper-06

The Stingray features some of the most intricate and captivating engravings seen on any device. The bottom switch has been embellished with the JD Tech logo, while the 18350 and 18490 tubes are adorned with the eye-catching Stingray emblem. In addition, this version also features a serial which is the device’s production number out of the total 1000 units that will ever be made. This characteristic is unique to only the Copper Stingray.

JD-Stingray-copper-03

For mechanical mod enthusiasts, the Copper Stingray has a little bit of everything, which is not an easy accomplishment by any means. JD Tech successfully found the delicate balance of performance, capability, and visual appeal. It doesn’t matter whether you’re just getting started or a seasoned vaping expert, the Copper Stingray truly does have something for every vaper to enjoy.

Maintaining Your Kayfun

March 24, 2014 | 0 Comments

kayfun-alone

To date, the Kayfun by SvoëMesto is easily one of the most-successful line of atomizers in the vaping industry’s relatively short history. Much of the Kayfun’s lasting popularity directly reflects its remarkable performance and unwavering durability. Although it doesn’t require much effort to keep your Kayfun performing at its best, routine maintenance from time to time is still necessary.

One component of Kayfun upkeep which some individuals may not be familiar with, is the process of replacing isolators when they have become worn. Insulators are small pieces of heat-resistant delrin which are needed in order for the Kayfun to operate safely and efficiently. This EDU will provide a video tutorial on how to completely disassemble the Kayfun Lite, replace the isolators, and successfully rebuild the atty using a micro-coil and cotton wick. The process demonstrated in this video also applies to the Lite Plus, 3.1, and 2.1 version of the Kayfun. So regardless of which Kayfun you’re using, this information will guide you through the routine maintenance procedures to ensure long lasting enjoyment with your Kayfun!
