VapeRev Proudly Presents #IMPROOF
The #IMPROOF Movement has been developed to encourage the growing vape community to share their personal story, and take pride in the decision they’ve made to enhance their lifestyle.
“Look at me. I’m 73 years old and I smoked for 55 years, and I did it.”
Karen Lee is a 73 year old woman who has given up her fifty-five year habit of smoking cigarettes. As many of us know, quitting smoking isn’t easy. However, like Karen, many of us have been able to successfully leave smoking in the past since pursuing the alternative known as e-cigarettes. Her story of achievement conveys a message of patience, strength, and encouragement for all those willing to listen. We invite you to view her story, and encourage you to get involved in the movement.

Last Saturday we stopped by the first of what’s to become a very exciting monthly event, referred to as the ARTesia Project! Our friends at Rooted collaborated with Footage, Sick Star, and a few local artists to highlight their talents while expanding art awareness within the community. While guests perused the collection of paintings and prints on display, they were invited to browse the selection of urban apparel neatly presented throughout the street-wear boutique. Visitors were also able to observe the strategic process of painting taking place as one featured artist worked diligently during the event to transform a blank canvas, into his own work of art. The photos below are a look inside a movement, the movement to keep creativity intertwined with culture and community. Enjoy this glimpse inside the ARTesia Project.
Special Thanks To:

Whether you’re looking for a new flavor, a new device, or just some good ol’ fashioned company, the team at Mode Vape in San Dimas is ready to meet your needs. I had the pleasure of speaking with Kevin, the owner of Mode Vape, and he walked me through his decision to quit smoking. After successfully helping friends quit, the idea of opening a shop seemed only logical. Mode Vape began as an intention to help the community. By providing a place for people to feel comfortable and relaxed while receiving education, Mode Vape has become exactly that. Take a few moments and get familiar with the Mode Vape mindset.
Kevin, will you tell us a little bit about why you started vaping, and what led you to opening Mode Vape?
When my wife and I decided to start a family I knew I needed to stop smoking for good. I had tried the patch, the gum, and quitting cold turkey but I still wasn’t able to quit. I always went back to smoking. I started to research electronic cigarettes and ended up purchasing an Ego. In just weeks I had completely stopped smoking and I had convinced three of my friends to purchase e-cigs! I knew then that vaping was the future, it wasn’t long after I quit smoking that I knew I wanted to own my own vape shop and help other smokers live tobacco free!
I really enjoy the atmosphere in your shop. What were some of the qualities you wanted Mode Vape to have when you began planning?
Mode Vape was designed to be a community; a place where people can come together and connect. You wont find any TV’s here. Vaping is a lifestyle and we encourage our customers to enjoy the company of other vapers while they’re in our store. Mode Vape has a comfortable juice bar, areas to work on builds, and we employ a well trained and knowledgeable staff that genuinely enjoys what they do and takes pride in their work.
The love an employee has for their job is always apparent to the customer. I can see that excellent customer service is something everyone at Mode Vape is eager to provide.
Great customer service is our number one goal. These days it is so easy for a new user to feel intimidated when they walk into a vape shop for the first time. I mean, everyone is holding these huge devices, blowing excessive amounts of vapor, some guy just fired up a blowtorch, and there’s miniature tornados on the counter! It can be overwhelming, so we really spend a lot of time getting to know the customer and understanding their needs before we sell them something. We are constantly striving to provide a positive and encouraging experience for all our customers.
What do you feel is the most rewarding aspect of owning a vape shop?
We love to hear the testimonials from our customers that have quit smoking! Blood pressures that have come down, chronic coughs that have stopped, taste buds that have returned, energy levels they haven’t felt in years. Each and every success is a HUGE reward for everyone at the shop.
What are your thoughts on the progression of the e-cig industry in the last year, and how would you describe the growing community that now exists?
We are seeing more and more people using e-cigs everyday, and that’s exciting! But with growth comes responsibility. With e-juice vendors popping up everywhere and all the clone devices flooding the market, I can only hope this progression will encourage manufacturers to produce safer, higher quality products, at lower prices. The vaping community is a wonderfully eclectic group of people from all over the world. There is an incredible amount of support and encouragement within our community and is one of the keys to the growth of our industry.
What do you find most appealing about vaping, and what was your first experience like?
Not smelling like an ashtray or needing to brush my teeth twenty times a day was fantastic! My first experience with an e-cig was easy. I used it, it worked, and I haven’t smoked since.
What do you enjoy most about vaping?
The flavor. I love trying new flavors.
Thank you for your time Kevin, would you like to close with any comments for the community?
Yes. A huge thank you goes out to the many veteran vapers who have continuously and selflessly given their time to educate and support new vapers on their journey to become tobacco free!
For more information, including address and telephone number, please refer to the Mode Vape Facebook page.Read More →

Since the release of the original King Mod earlier this year, the finely-tuned mechanical device has received wide praise for having a durable and attractive design along with top-quality components that provide powerful performance. The new Satin Brass version is Surefire’s latest addition to the King Mod lineup, and its finely brushed finish is simply stunning.
The aesthetics have been modified to include a flush, and seamless appearance all the way around. Another key change that has been introduced with the Satin Brass King is its redesigned switch. The solid copper contacts remain unchanged, however the bottom switch assembly has been recessed into its housing. The recessed button allows you to safely set the device down while it’s unlocked, without the worry of any accidental activation. All of which enhances the overall sleek nature of the King.
The Satin Brass may look distinctly different from its predecessors, but it too, proudly bears the royal King emblem. Providing you with smooth style and a strong standard of quality, the Satin Brass King is an amazing way to vape throughout your day!
The Satin Brass King will be available in-store and online Friday, November 22nd.Read More →
We recently received the VR Edition drip-tips, by VapeLab, and the two-tone combination has caught the eye of beholders both in-store and online! Happy to have them, and eager to learn more about the sleek stainless steel and brass tips, I decided to speak with the maker himself! Heiko shared his inspiration and the process taken to develop these brilliant, limited edition drip-tips!
When you decided to make the VR Edition drip tips, did you design them with the intention of matching the VapeRev Nemesis by having a brass and stainless steel combo?
After the success with the first batch of Limited Edition drip-tips, the idea of a second edition was quickly born. I decided to make the VR Edition tips after seeing the VR Edition Nemesis by Atmomixani. The brass and stainless combo was done on the original Limited Edition tips though, so I kept the VR Edition similar, knowing they would look great paired with the Nemesis.
Are the VapeRev tips considered “limited edition”? If so, how many will be made?
They are. There will only be 500 pieces made.
You mentioned the process of making the tips took you quite a bit of time; will you explain the process of creating these drip-tips?
Simply said, it’s a pain in the butt. It’s a really tough process. Some people may not understand it to be more than “just machining,” but I consider it to be art. The drip-tips are made seamlessly without the use of threads, glue, or anything else. It begins with the base parts being CNC machined with very, very tight tolerances, because without that, there won’t be success with the rest of the process. Once the basic parts are complete, the hard process begins. Making these unique tips the way they are requires the brass to be heated, once it’s hot, it can be pressed onto the base. The shrinking procedure is also very, very important.
While the material cools and returns to normal temperature, it could crack due to the amount of pressure on the piece. Between 10-20% of what I produce during the shrinking process becomes spoiled by cracks. After the brass is attached, the top stainless steel piece goes through the same process of heating and shrinking. To create the flush look, the drip-tips must return to the lathe. I lathe them again by hand, and do so until they’re seamless. Then, after inspection, they proceed to polishing. Each drip-tip is polished by hand to give them a high-gloss look, being carried through the process as though the drip-tip were jewelry. For vapers, our mods are an extension of our jewelry. So after a few more inspections, the VapeLab crown and the serial number are engraved. I want people to enjoy these drip-tips, they were made to be unique.
Unique is certainly one way to describe the variety of drip-tips VapeLab offers, but the latest release of the VR Edition tip has certainly made an impression! A complimenting accessory that will shine on top of any setup, these limited edition tips are now available exclusively at VapeRev! Thank you Heiko, for providing us with this opportunity!Read More →
