Background On Vaping
Why Vape? Vaping is a tastier, cheaper, cleaner and a more eco-friendly alternative to smoking. People who vape spend less money, smell better and have improved health compared to people who smoke. Vaping has been around since 2003 and millions of people world-wide are switching to vaping due to the benefits compared with smoking traditional cigarettes. There are literally thousands of flavours available which enhance the vaping experience such as banana, strawberry, custard, tobacco flavours, mint, chocolate, coffee, caramel, apple, mango – the list is endless.
What Is In My Vaping Kit? Your vaping kit includes a case, a 1650mah eGo/pen style Vision Spinner 2 variable voltage vaporizer battery, a Mini Pro Tank 3 clearomizer with dual coil, a spare dual coil, a USB eGo charger and 30ml of 3mg Nicotine e-juice.
Tell Me About E-Juice? A normal cigarette contains 12 to 18mg of nicotine but we offer 3mg juice which means you still get the nicotine your body “craves” but helps to quickly wean you off the addictive substance a lot faster. Other commercial e-juices vary in strength from 0mg (no nicotine) all the way to 24mg which are much stronger than regular cigarettes. E-Juice is made of 3 to 4 ingredients – Nicotine (Optional), VG (Vegetable Glycerin), PG (Propylene Glycol) and Flavours (Usually mixed in PG). PG and VG are common products used in the food manufacturing and cosmetic industries and you “could” eat them by themselves (not that you would want to). PG provides better flavour while VG provides more vapour production. A common mix for e-juice is 50% VG and 50% PG which provides good flavour and good vapour production. Another common mix is 70% VG and 30% PG for more vapour production.
How Does It Work? E-juice is poured into the clearomizer (tank) which contains a coil which has a wick (normally cotton). This unit is then sealed and attached to the battery. Once you press the button on the battery then the coil quickly heats up the e-juice and turns it into vapour that you inhale as you would a cigarette.
How Do I Start?
1). Charge The Battery - Open your kit and take out the battery and the USB charger. Screw the charger into your battery and then plug your charger into a computer USB slot. The light on the charger will turn red to signal the battery is charging. Once the charger light turns green then it’s ready for use and can be unplugged and disconnected. The battery should be fully charged prior to using the battery for the first time. You can turn the battery on and off by quickly pressing the button 5 times within 2 seconds to turn the battery on and off. The initial (and subsequent charges) may take up to 3-4 hours. A battery will typically last about 400-500 puffs before it needs to be recharged.
* When the battery is 60% to fully-charged the button glows “white”
* When the button glows “blue” then the battery is 30% to 60% charged
* When the button glows “orange” then the battery is less that 30% charged and should be recharged
* When the button “flashes” then the battery is empty and needs to be charged
It’s best to have a couple of batteries so you can charge one while using the other (and then swap them over when applicable).
2). Fill Up The Clearomizer – Unscrew the bottom of the empty clearomizer. You will notice the coil attached to the bottom section of the tank – You can put this down for now. Open your bottle of child proof e-juice and get some juice into the dropper. While holding the tank like a beer glass, slowly pour the e-juice into the upside down tank avoiding the central pole (otherwise juice will leak everywhere and you may get some in your mouth – not pleasant!). Don’t overflow the tank above the central pole. Screw the bottom piece and the coil back on and leave it to sit for a couple of minutes to let the e-juice soak into the wick inside the coil before vaping.
3). Adjust The Voltage On The Battery – There are 3 main settings to determine a good level to vape at which will ensure the e-juice burns at a good temperature and doesn’t burn the coil and wick. These settings are volts, watts and ohms. The Vision Spinner 2 battery has an adjustable voltage from 3.3V through to 4.8V. This can be adjusted on the bottom of the battery by turning the adjustable dial left and right. 3.3V is hard left and 4.8V is hard right. The battery has 4 locking settings (3.3V, 3.7V, 4.3V and 4.8V) however the battery adjuster can sit between these settings. The standard coil is rated at 1.5ohms so the best settings for this battery and clearomizer setup is 3.3V to 3.7V on the battery. This provides around 5-7 watts of power which will heat the juice at the right temperature and allow the tank to refill without “overcooking” the juice and coil. If the voltage is too high the juice will burn too quickly resulting in the wick burning as the juice can’t replenish in time. If this happens then simply turn the voltage down by adjusting the dial to the left.
4). Pre-Prime The Coil – Have a couple of puffs on the clearomizer via the drip tip (the piece you puff on which is also detachable and replaceable) without pressing the button on the battery. This will help ensure the coil and wick have e-juice ready to vape.
5). Vape! - Hold down the button while you inhale. Let the button go when you’ve finished inhaling. Suck that delicious e-juice into your lungs just like you would a cigarette. Congratulations – you’re now a vaper! It takes a little bit of time to get the timing right but it soon becomes second nature!
I’m getting no vapour at all:
Is the battery charged and turned on?
Do you have any e-juice in the tank?
The flavour is “burnt” tasting:
Turn the voltage down (turn the dial to the left / counter clockwise)
Do you have enough juice in the tank?
The coil may need to be replaced as they eventually wear out (These generally last 2 to 3 weeks before they need to be replaced). These replacement items are easily screwed in and swapped out from the bottom base of the clearomizer.
I’m not getting much vapour:
Turn up the voltage
The coil may need replacing (every 2 to 3 weeks) or the coil may be faulty
The battery power may be low and may need charging
Buy a second battery and/or charger so you can charge one while vaping with the other …
Always have at least one spare coil just in case it needs to be replaced …
If you have a second clearomizer you can have a different flavour ready to go …
Not all e-juice is created equal – VVVapes e-juice only uses flavourings sourced from Flavour Art (Italy), The Flavour Apprentice (USA), Capella (USA) and LorAnn (USA). The VG used in VVVapes is pure organic, not refined VG which is made from palm oil used in cheap Chinese and foreign juices and the PG is quality USP pharmaceutical grade. Nicotine is also directly sourced from the USA and is USP grade …
It takes a couple of weeks to fully adjust to vaping after smoking so persevere with it when you start vaping and the cigarettes slowly turn into a fading memory. It’s OK to smoke and vape while you get used to vaping. After a couple of weeks you will notice you no longer need cigarettes and eventually you dislike the smell of cigarette smoke …
