Flavor Friday: Sour Raspberries N Cream!

Image
If you've ever watched a LIVE feed at VistaVapors, you know that Alex swears by Sour Raspberries n Cream. He vapes it all day, every day (okay, he tries different vape juices every once in a while). We sat down with Alex to get his thoughts as to why Sour Raspberries n Cream is his ADV; here they are! Q: So, what makes Sour Raspberries n Cream your all day vape? A: It begins and ends with how smooth the flavor is, really. I love the flavor itself so much, but there are a lot of flavors out there that I love. What makes this one different is how smooth of a vape it is, while still being incredibly flavorful. Sometimes, sweeter flavors or fruit flavors can end up getting boring or at least less exciting over time. I've never experienced that with Sour Raspberries n Cream. It's like my trusty old steed. It may not be the craziest flavor I've ever had, but it's delicious! Q: How would you compare this flavor to say, Wild Berry, since it's one of our most popular f…

Tech Tuesday: The Amigo VW80!

Image
Amigo has been a wonderful company for devices that help beginners get into vaping, as well as making "stepping-stone" products that make it great to transition into sub-ohming and more. Today, I'll give a full rundown of the Vogue VW80, Amigo's first external-battery sub-ohm device! There's a really strong chance you've seen a post or two from us at VistaVapors about the Amigo products that we offer on the site. There's a reason for that! We stand behind Amigo and their products as a great avenue for beginner vapers. They've recently released this new mod, the Vogue VW80, and it's a terrific transition into sub-ohm vaping! With an available 80W capacity, you can run just about every sub-ohm tank, short of the super sub-ohm tanks, on the device! In addition, it runs in temperature control mode, so if you're looking to use Nickel, Titanium, or Stainless Steel wire in temperature control, you can also do that!  The mod itself weighs a lot. Like…

Doug Was Here! | An Interview With a Vista Vaper

Image
As we've said before, we're like a family here at VistaVapors. Not only does it mean the world to us to be able to work alongside each other at Vista, but our customers are as much a part of the family as the employees are!  Just a few weeks ago, we had a very special visit to Vista from a very special person. We were extremely fortunate to get to meet Doug and his wife Jade, who are both customers of VistaVapors! Doug is a former smoker who kicked the habit after 15 years. After picking up vaping, he's seen drastic improvements in his health, and has made the transition all the way down to 0mg nicotine! For someone that was once a 3 pack a day smoker, that is an accomplishment no one can shake a finger at! Below is the video of the interview that Lance conducted with Doug.
Doug coming to visit was such a special treat for us here. Not only are he and his wife great people, but it was an incredible experience to hear the testimony from someone who has made the transition …

Tech Tuesday Is Back! Introducing the Smok V8 Stick Kit!

Image
It's been a while since we last did a Tech Tuesday blog, but we're back at it with something really awesome! New to VistaVapors, the Smok V8 Stick is a relatively new release from Smok that takes a simple approach to a great vape! You'll notice in the picture that there's only one button on the battery of this kit, and that's what simplicity is all about! No need to mess around with wattage, voltage, external batteries, temperature control...none of that. With the Smok V8 Stick kit, you're getting a high-volume tank with a low-ohm coil that will produce tons of vapor, but all you've got to do is click one button!  The battery is a 3000mAh unregulated cell, so when it's fully charged it will output at around 4.2 volts. As the battery loses life, it will lose power down to around 3.4 volts, at which point you'll need to throw it on a charger.  Atop the battery sits the newest iteration of the Cloud Beast tank, the Big Baby Beast! It holds approximate…

Vistavapors - What Makes Us Different?

The Vaping Industry is Booming...and Booming...What Makes VistaVapors Different From Other Companies? The vaping industry is in the middle of what may be one of those historical movements in Public Health; one that will be reflected on for generations. Amidst the growth of the industry, companies have popped up left and right to jump on the hype wagon, and each one is looking for that edge to peak interest over their competition. Our journey in the realm of vaping began in 2013, when we decided that affordability and top-quality product and service were the most important values we could bring to the table. But what makes us different than anyone else? It all begins with our work environment here at VistaVapors. We're not just an online vape juice company, we're not just a juice manufacturer, we're a family. All cheesiness aside, it's true, we're a family around here. The passion we all share for each other and our customers is far beyond anywhere any of us have e…

What Is an Ejuice Calculator? Do I Need One? What's the Point?

Why on Earth would I need an vape juice calculator? What is the point?... A long time ago, when e-cigarettes were first gaining popularity, DIY eJuice was becoming more and more popular simultaneously. There's a lot that goes into making one's own eJuice, so a few different websites decided to build calculators for their users to assist them in blending their own flavors.  Because of the language pertaining to DIY in the FDA's regulatory bill, many companies no longer carry or promote the use of DIY products, for the purpose of maintaining integrity in the face of these new regulations. However, through all of this, VistaVapors has continued to carry our Mix Your Own product, which has been about as close to DIY as one can get. Mix Your Owns at VistaVapors are the quintessential juice creation tool that allows you, the consumer, to choose exactly what you want your juice to taste like, and we will make it for you! As an already licensed manufacturer and distributor, it…

Tips for E-juice Reviews | Vistavapors' Guide to Reviews

FOLLOW THESE STEPS WHEN REVIEWING FLAVORS FOR YOUR FOLLOWERS, AND YOU'LL GET A FULL-SCOPE OF THE FLAVOR AND IT'S PROS AND CONS.  1. Smell Test - Does Your Nose Like It? The first step in reviewing vape juice is to perform the simplest test of all, the Smell Test! Your Olfactory sensors are not just based in taste, they are also based in odors, how your sense of smell interprets the same chemicals that your taste buds are sensing. While each person has between 5,000 - 10,000 taste buds in their mouth and throat (BrainFacts, 2012) everyone also has additional Olfactory glands that are tied directly to your sense of smell. Without using your nose for testing flavor, you're really only getting half of the ground covered. Using your sense of smell as part of your review will not only provide additional depth to your review, but it will also give a broader perspective on the actual flavor, not just taste.  2. Flavor Character is a Must-Address! On certain occasions, it is even …

What's the Real Difference Between Premium Juice and Inexpensive Juice?

What's the REAL difference; why do Premiums cost more? We get asked this question all the time, and it's a great question! In normal context, it makes sense for something that's labeled "Premium" to cost more, but what actually makes a Premium vape juice?  E-juice is a very interesting product, as it's essentially a translation of an idea or recipe from the real world that's been converted into something you can vape. Not often in life do you see an imitation product that's based purely on market demand. It's kind of like Tofu, in a way, in that Tofu can be made to taste like many different cuts of meat, without ever actually being the real thing. You can find eLiquids everywhere on the market that taste like all sorts of things you'd normally eat, like Berry Pound Cake, for example.  Think of buying juice like you would foods. For example, if you're buying an $8 Cheeseburger, it's likely that will be a pretty good burger, but a $25 C…

Does Vape Juice Ever Go Bad?

Image
As with any consumable, there's the looming question, will this go bad over time? The simple answer when it comes to vape juice is, no! But nothing is that simple, is it? Here's the sitch... E-Juice as a mixture will continue to steep over time, until the end of time, and eventually, will become so steeped that the flavor is incredibly strong. For some folks, that's not a problem at all, while others like their juice to be "just right". There's no harm in either preference, but in making sure that you're vaping a juice that you love, it's important to note that the longer the bottle sits, the more it will steep. Generally, we use the rule of thumb of 6 months for juice consumption. If you're using your juice regularly after purchase, you will likely use what you've got before the 6 month passes by, but even so, the juice won't be spoiled at that time. In fact, I've been known to find old bottles of juice and to try them out many month…

Is Vaping Safe? We Give You Our Thoughts.

The Ultimate Question when it comes to switching from smoking to vaping: Is Vaping Even Safe? You've read in an article from some big news outlet somewhere, or from a friend, or a friend of a friend, that vaping is no better than smoking, and that it might even be more dangerous, but is that true? The simplest answer to that question is: No. That is not true. But nothing in life is that simple; there's an abundance of information floating around regarding the safety of electronic cigarettes. This story began decades ago, and it began with smoking. A Brief History of Tobacco Regulation Starting in 1970, the United States government began the bulk their efforts to regulate smoking and smoking advertisements in the modern era. Although, for decades (up to centuries in some cases) prior to the 1970's, there had already been a plethora of information released in Europe regarding the dangers of smoking, this was the first real step that American lawmakers had taken in regulation…
