The Best Method to Break-In Your New Coils

Image
Although arguably the most important part of any vape experience is still the vape juice, one of the most important parts about getting started with your new vape coil is making sure it's broken-in properly. There aren't many worse things than burning out a fresh coil when it comes to vaping. That's not the only thing you need to keep your eye on, though, so in today's blog, we'll try to cover each and every detail necessary for breaking in your newest vape coils. Without further ado, let's begin!

Once you get a new device, you'll first want to break-in the coils. Doing so is very easy, but it can be a bit tedious. Start by dripping a few drops of juice onto the coil that's inside the tank, not so much that it floods everywhere, but enough that the cotton begins to look wet on the inside. After that, drip a few drops into the slots on the outside of the coil as well - continue that process until those holes appear to have fully saturated cotton. From th…

How To Clean Your Vape Tank

Image
For those who've recently quit smoking and started vaping or those who simply seek some advice for properly managing their vape equipment, today's blog is for you! Cleaning your vape tank is exceptionally important, especially before you change out your coil and filling it with vape juice.

While some tanks allow you to keep the juice you've got left in your tank when you change your coil, we recommend trying your best to vape through the rest of that juice before making the switch. That way, you can dismantle the tank and clean it out before screwing in a new coil and your favorite vape juice.

Cleaning your tank is very easy, but it requires a few steps. Some tanks allow you to dismantle the entire thing, while others stay semi-intact in the dismantling process. To begin the cleaning process, take your tank apart completely so all of the pieces are separate from one another. From there, get a paper towel or napkin handy, and run each individual piece under warm water. Piec…

Top 5 Vape Juices to Help Quit Smoking

Image
Smoking grabs a hold of your life in ways that no other activities do. Whether you're forced to spend time outside in the cold to satisfy your cravings or you're watching your bank account plummet each time you visit a convenience store, you want to get out of the cycle. We totally understand that. Instead of letting the cycle continue for months, years, or even decades, you can begin your journey to quit smoking today. In today's blog, we'll lay out what we've found to be the Top 5 Vape Juices at our website to help people move away from cigarettes for good!

1. American Tobacco - If you like vaping as an alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes, you might be craving a tobacco-like taste. Luckily, our American Tobacco e-liquid is sure to do just the trick. It has the all-American tobacco taste that you're used to, but it's available in an e-juice just for vaping. For those who are looking for an everyday vape that is similar to the cigarettes that the…

FDA Calls for Comment on Drug Therapy Proposal

We have arrived. The FDA is considering cozying-up even closer to Big Pharma in a proposed effort to mitigate youth tobacco and nicotine use through, you guessed it, more drug therapies. If you've spent more than 30 seconds researching the effects of drug therapies on helping smokers quit cigarettes, you'll see there's little evidence that they work for the majority of quitters, and even more evidence that many of these "therapies" actually have an adverse effect on those that use them, from depression symptoms to nausea, etc. Here we sit, though, nearly all the way through 2018, and the FDA has fallen back into the pit of "drugs will fix our problems", and if we don't express our displeasure with drugging up kids even-more, the FDA will continue their policy agenda of appeasing to pharmaceutical companies, for-profit advocacy groups, and bough-and-sold lawmakers.

Just to be clear, even though we shouldn't have to explain our position any furthe…

What are Nicotine Salts? Beginner's Guide to Salt E-Liquid

Whether you're new to vaping, or you've been in the game for a while, you've probably heard some of the buzz surrounding "Nicotine Salts" and have wondered, "What on Earth is that?" Don't worry, we've all been there. Today, we'll go through all of the ins-and-outs of Nicotine Salts, what they are, what they do to vape juice, and who they're meant for. Join us! Decisions, Decisions: What do I choose? Vape juice has been comprised of the same four ingredients since vaping became a wide-spread phenomenon: Food Grade Flavoring, Vegetable Glycerin (VG), Propylene Glycol (PG), and, of course, Nicotine. While you can often change your preferences for Flavors, PG/VG blends, and Nicotine Strength, you haven't been able to choose the chemical state of your Nicotine, until now. Freebase Nicotine Traditionally, vape juice uses a pure-form of nicotine, often referred to as Freebase N…

OPINION: Dr. Hilary Jones UK "Go vape!"

Image
Dr. Hilary Jones is a British General Practitioner, Author, TV personality, and Public Speaker, and has spent much of his life providing medical advice both to other doctors as well as citizens alike. Just this morning, his opinion piece in The Sun, a British and Irish publication, was released. He makes some very powerful arguments in favor of vaping and vape juice, and we think you're really going to enjoy what he wrote. Here's a sample, followed by a link to the remainder of the article:

"MANY people still believe that vaping is just as bad for you as smoking ordinary cigarettes. But it isn’t. They also think that because you are inhaling nicotine in the vapour of e-cigarettes you are just as likely to get lung cancer as you would smoking tobacco. You are not. There are also worries that vaping will act as a gateway for young people, who have never smoked, to progress to traditional cigarettes and ruin their health as a result. They are fears, too, that it will “norma…

Study: Vaping Does Not Stain Your Teeth

Image
A recent study published in the American Journal of Dentistry suggests some pretty incredible findings. While we know the negative effects of cigarettes on your health, we haven't had many opportunities to truly compare how cigarettes affect your health vs. e-cigarettes and vape juice. This study provides us a small glimpse into the effect of cigarettes and vapor products on your dental health; something that should be of paramount concern to anyone who is a current or former smoker.

While it's no fun to go to the dentist, it's actually very important. Your mouth is not only the place you put your food for sustenance, it's also the place in your body that's most exposed to germs and other bacteria. If you want to be healthy, keep your mouth healthy. That's not a saying, it's just the truth. This is why it's recommended that you brush twice a day and floss and use mouthwash. Not just to have a great smile, but to actually promote health and wellness in t…

How do I get started Vaping?

Image
Vaping truly is a one-of-a-kind technology. If you look at the history of technology and how it's evolved, you'll see solutions to problems everywhere; that's what's made technology so valuable to our society. Vaping and vape juice absolutely fit in this category of tech, but the major difference is this: Vaping is one of the few pieces of technology deliberately designed as a means of saving consumers from the "non-tech" alternative option.

There are other technologies that fit in this category as well. Driving assistance technology in new cars is a great example. It's safer to allow the vehicle to navigate a dangerous patch of road than it is to navigate it yourself, especially if it's an unknown scenario. Another example would be Bluetooth connections and hands-free connections in cars. More accidents are caused by distractions than anything else, and car accidents are one of the leading causes of death in the United States. How do you solve this …

Vaping vs. Cigarettes: Are we still talking about this?

Image
It's been what, a decade, since vaping has been under scrutiny by the government, special interest groups, and pharmaceutical companies? Pretty darn close. Whether it's batteries, vape juice, nicotine, or flavoring, it seems there's always something to point the proverbial finger at as a reason to stay away from vaping. However, the lack of consistency, the lack of claims that actually "stick", and most importantly - the antagonistic reporting on this method of nicotine replacement, have all seemingly forgotten one thing: Cigarettes are the problem here. It's cigarettes that got these adults addicted to nicotine and nearly 4,000 other chemicals, likely for decades. It's cigarettes that are behind the deaths of over 5 million people each year around the world. It's cigarettes that caused lifelong diseases for more than 16 million Americans. While the Royal College of Physicians study from 2016 points to e-cigarettes being 95% safer than cigarettes, he…

Is there really an 'epidemic' of teen vaping?

Image
The Commissioner of the FDA, Scott Gottlieb, recently released a statement regarding the 'epidemic' of teen vaping that's taking place in the United States. Some of the statement included comments on advertising, while some were on vape juice. While the message depicts a dismal, frightening landscape of teenagers vaping everywhere from schools to bedrooms, the numbers don't necessarily agree with the claims. In agreement with the FDA, we also want teen vaping to decline. However, to call the current levels an 'epidemic' is somewhat misleading. Let's dig into the data and see where it leads.

First and foremost, we need to be clear about the definition of the word Epidemic. We are, after all, discussing whether or not teen vaping is at epidemic levels. An Epidemic is defined by Webster's Dictionary as: "affecting or tending to affect a disproportionately large number of individuals within a population, community, or region at the same time", wh…

Alex's Top 5 Favorite Vape Juices!

Image
Ever wonder what the employees at VistaVapors choose for their vape juice? Which flavors they think are the best on our site? If so, today's blog should be one you enjoy! We're going to cover Alex's Top 5 Favorite Vape Juices at VistaVapors! Enjoy, and give them a try! Here's what he had to say:

5. Mud Bath from the Dirty Pig Line - Are you a fan of Caramel Apples? How about Cotton Candy? What about together?! That's essentially what Mud Bath is, actually! I'm a huge fan of both of those flavors, but I guess I'd never imagined what they might taste like together until I tried Mud Bath for the first time. It's pretty sweet, which is the only reason it's not my "#1" flavor of all time. I can usually vape a full 30ml of it before I'm interested in switching to one of my ADV's, but seriously, this flavor is so good. It's a really nice "candy" flavor that I think anyone would enjoy, if not LOVE!

4. Sour Grapes from the Suc…

BEST TANKS OF 2018!

Image
Today's blog is all about sub-ohm tanks; here at VistaVapors, we love ourselves some sub-ohm tanks! Our passion for making high-quality and flavorful vape juice was made even more passionate by the evolution of sub-ohm tanks, and today, we can't wait to share with you what we think are the best sub-ohm tanks of 2018! We'll start with Number 3 and work our way to Number 1!

Number 3: eLeaf ELLO Vate Tank
This tank arrives on the eLeaf iStick Pico S kit, and is a cloud producing machine! One of the major positives of this tank is the fact that it holds around 6.5ml of vape juice, which is a dream for people who don't look forward to filling their tank. Another plus is the fill-method; featuring a "slide-to-open" top cap, something that's becoming a staple in tank designs, you'll be able to easily open the tank, fill it up, and close it without worrying about spilling juice while you're at it. On top of that, the flavor quality in this tank is, well, …

CDC Study: Evaluation of Chemical Exposures at a Vape Shop

Image
In a study produced by the CDC and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services titled, "Evaluation of Chemical Exposures at a Vape Shop", in 2017, the DHHS and CDC studied the volume of airborne chemicals in a vape shop after employees and customers used vape juice in the store. What they found is very promising for the vaping industry, and proves (again!) the value of unbiased research over outside-funded studies meant to prompt public unrest. Let's dive into the study and see what we learned, shall we?



According to the highlights of the study provided in the write-up, the focus of the study was to evaluate the air quality in a particular vape shop for many of the chemicals as-named by the mainstream media and anti-vaping groups. What they found was really important for vapers and their health; a negligible quantity of each chemical was reported in the air, or, a "below occupational exposure limits" amount, which means two things: 1. Vaping still isn't 10…

Tips and Tricks: How to Change Your Vape Coils the Right Way

Image
Changing your coils out can be a real pain. Whether you'd like to change out which vape juice you're using, or you simply burned out the old one, putting a new coil in your tank doesn't have to be such a tedious process. In today's blog, we're going to share a few helpful steps you can take to make changing your coils an easy process!

1. Wait to change coils until your tank is almost empty - As simple as it sounds, this can be the most annoying part of changing your coils. If you start the process with a full tank, chances are pretty high you're going to spill some juice. Even if your coil is getting to the point that the flavor isn't great anymore, it's worth the wait. You don't want to spill juice everywhere!

2. Juice up the new coil before you install it into the tank - This one is also pretty straightforward, however, if done correctly, the break-in process can go a lot quicker! The easiest way to do this is to drip your juice of choice onto the…

SMOK X-Priv Kit
Smok is constantly finding ways to innovate on their already industry-leading product lineup, and the X-Priv Kit is no exception! In years past, as Smok has dropped their newest dual-battery kits, they've held a very similar form-factor and user interface. However, last year they updated their interface with the ProColor Kit, but kept the same form-factor in place. Well, they've done it again! Featuring the exact same form-factor that you've gotten so accustomed to seeing, the X-Priv now features buttons away from the screen for an easier time reading the display as well as an update on the tank!
