Vaping Q and A (13)
Vegetable Glycerin (VG) is a thick, sweet liquid, extracted from plants, and is primarily responsible for the vapor produced. It is traditionally employed in the following industries: Food, Pharma, Botanical, and personal care products. Propylene Glycol (PG) is a colorless, odorless liquid, which is responsible for assisting in the delivery of the active ingredient(s), in our case this would be nicotine. The US FDA approves both compounds as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe).

Propylene glycol is a humectant, which in short means that it loves water. As a result, the vapor being inhaled when using an electronic cigarette absorbs moisture from your mouth as it travels to your lungs. Some individuals may be sensitive to the Propylene Glycol (PG) component of e-liquid, which can further promote dry mouth. One method to minimize dry mouth is to use e-liquids that have a lower PG to VG ratio. Also, stay hydrated!
No. Nicotine is the addictive active ingredient found in cigarettes, therefore is used in e-liquids. Studies have shown that about 50 of the (over) 4,000 combusted chemicals in traditional cigarettes are known to cause cancer, but nicotine is not one of them. Nicotine by itself is not linked to any form of cancer. In fact, research is under way to evaluate the use of nicotine to delay the onset and effects of both Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. With this being said, the electronic cigarette industry is still very young, and long-term studies have yet to be performed.
Although there is no set guidelines, we generally recommend that the customer samples 12mg so they can gauge whether or not more or less nicotine is needed to meet their preference. The average pack-a-day smoker finds that e-liquids with 12 mg nicotine concentrations are strong enough to curb their cravings for a cigarette.
This is sound you want to hear; the “crackling” sound means that there is an ideal amount of e-liquid being vaporized by the atomizer. Essentially, this sound is generated from the e-liquid being transformed into vapor as it is heated by the atomizer coil.
This sounds indicates your atomizer is flooded with an excess amount of e-liquid. Flooding prevents the atomizer from functioning properly and lowers its ability to produce vapor. The ‘bubbling’ or ‘gurgling’ sound is generated from air flowing through the excess e-liquid in the atomizing chamber, similar to the effect of blowing air through a straw into a glass of water.
This means that your atomizer is flooded with e-liquid. Too much e-liquid causes saturation of the atty’s wick and heating coils, thus making vapor production very difficult as well as making a “bubbling” or ” gurgling” when the vapor attempts to pull (draw) from the device’s drip-tip.
You aren’t doing anything wrong, it just means that the atomizer has vaporized all of the e-liquid on the wick. It is completely normal for this to happen from time to time with dripping atomizers since they don’t use a tank. This typically happens after about 3-4 pulls (draws) from a dripping atomizer. Just add a few drops of e-liquid into the atomizer and repeat as needed. If you would like to watch a few videos about dripping atomizers then click one of the following links:
No flame, no material is being burned, therefore zero combustion takes places.
Vaping addresses one component of smoking, nicotine, without having to combust 600 ingredients into over 4,000 chemicals, with over 50 of them known to be cancer-causing.
Unlike smoking cigarettes, vaping does not expose yourself and those around you to the dangers of secondhand smoke.
No unpleasant smell that sticks to your clothing, car interior, home or breath.
E-liquid satisfies your craving for nicotine without the negative byproducts that are associated with traditional tobacco products, including several toxic chemicals and tar.
E-liquids are available in varying nicotine strengths, standardly: 0 mg, 6 mg, 12 mg, 18 mg, and 24 mg. This allows you to choose a nicotine strength that meets your needs and satisfies your nicotine cravings, which will help you to successfully switch over from cigarettes for good!
Yes, we do indeed! There are several resources available on our website (www.vaperev.com). These include: product breakdown articles, atomizer profile videos, juice profile videos, and EDU videos which demonstrate atomizer rebuilds, maintenance procedures, safety tips and more!
There are only 4 components incorporated into e-liquid: PG/VG, nicotine, and flavoring. All of which are non-toxic (with the exception of nicotine in extremely high doses).
Rebuildable atomizers are available in an array of different options, but they all utilize a atomizer coil and wick made by you! Many vapers enjoy rebuildable atomizers because they provide a highly-customizable vaping experience. Regardless of what type of vape you like, rebuildable atomizers may be set up to meet all of your preferences.

As with rebuildable atomizers, mechanical mods are also available in a variety of different shapes, sizes, and styles. Regardless of their appearance, all mechanical devices operate without the use of electronic processors, micro chips, or circuitry. They feature a switch that, when pressed, contacts the positive and negative contacts to a battery which causes the battery to send an electrical current to the atomizer. Many vapers enjoy mechanical mods for their simplicity, replaceable parts, and appealing aesthetic qualities.

The vaping community is very welcoming and will appreciate any support it can get. There are several easy ways to get involved, take part in activities, show support, and get in touch with other vapers. Here are a few outlets you can refer to for information:
