We do have to learn it though as imagine this, you start showing your friends some pretty cool vape tricks you’ve learnt from this page and then one of your friends says, “Oh I love how they do those smoke rings”, it’s pretty important you can do it right, or your credibility as the world’s greatest vape trickster is on the line! It is quite difficult to master though, so instead of just starting with the most famous vape trick, we’re going to start with easy tricks that anyone can learn, and move on from there. Blowing smoke rings or o’s will be in the more advanced category, where we move onto some pretty amazing vape tricks.

Hopefully, by the time you’ve finished this tutorial, you will have a few cool tricks up your sleeve to impress others, or simply to entertain yourself, so let’s get on with it:


Easy Vape Tricks For Beginners!


The Dragon aka The Dragons Breath Trick

The Dragon Breath Vape Trick

This is one of the simplest tricks that looks pretty cool! The trick is where you blow the vapour simultaneously out of your nose and the sides of your mouth making it look like it’s coming from 4 directions and has a look of a dragon’s breath.

How It’s Done:

You do need a vape pen or mod that creates a lot of vapour, we have a list of the top 5 sub ohm vape tanks, any of these will work really well with this trick.

The important skill you need to perform this trick is to be able to close your mouth whilst opening the sides of your mouth; this is simply done by closing your mouth and trying to smile, hold it there and get ready to blow. That’s the hardest part!

The last part is to simply use the method above and also breath out your nose at the same time, this takes a little practice, the best way is not to blow out to fast, just do it slowly. Voila, you have the breath of the dragon!


The Ghost Hit aka The Ghost Inhale Trick

Ghost Inhale Vape Trick

This is a really popular trick within the vaping community, although when I was a smoker, I never heard of it!

Ghost inhaling, is when you exhale a little vapour, suck it up really quickly leaving a ghost-like vape in its wake. It looks pretty cool trust me and is relatively easy and quick to learn. You do need a good amount of vapor in your mouth to perform this trick, so it’s advised that you have one of the best e cigs you can get hold off.

How It’s Done:

Inhale some vapour straight into your mouth without letting it go to your lungs, hold it there for a few seconds to allow it to settle. Try to push out a small amount of vapour without actually blowing all the vape out. Then open your mouth wider and suck it all up! Here’s a video to see how it’s done:


The Waterfall

This is a real simple vape trick that anyone can perform, it’s not really a trick as to more of a demonstration of how thick vape clouds are. The effect is simply showing the vapour coming out of a bottle or glass and falling onto a table giving the effect of a waterfall.

How It’s Done:

Really simply take a big breath of vapour and slowly exhale all that vapour into a glass or bottle. Let the vapour settle for a second and slowly pour it onto the table. That’s all there is to it, you’ve produced a pretty cool magical waterfall!


The Tornado aka The Table Tornado Trick

The Tornado Vape Trick

This is where you exhale a huge amount of vapour onto a table, once the vapour is settled with your hand you create a mini tornado right in front of you. It looks pretty cool once you get it right and is really easy to do!

How It’s Done:

Again you’re going to need a vape that produces a lot of vapour, so check out the list we linked to earlier for some ideas.

The hardest part of this trick is getting the vapour in the middle of the table without it blowing away. Obviously, you can’t really do this trick outside or where there is a breeze and it does take a little practice blowing the right amount of vapour.

Put your head down to the same height of the table and slowly exhale the vape onto the table, alter how hard you exhale until you have a nice stable amount of vapour lingering on the table. Then with your hand, slowly come in from the side as if your going into shake someone’s hand when you’re in the middle of the vape pool lift your hand up as if your high fiving someone from the bottom. That’s it, you have your own little tornado!


French Inhale aka Irish Waterfall Trick

The French Inhale Vape Trmaidth=

This is one trick thast does take a little practise, but once mastered looks really cool. It’s a common trick that many master pretty quickly.

It involves exhaling slowly from your mouth while breathing in from your nose producing, a weird looking vapour running from your mouth up into your nose!

How It’s Done:

As I said this is a relatively easy vape trick to perform once you know the secret! Of course, it’s impossible to blow out your mouth while breathing into your nose so your actually just pushing the vapour our slowly with your mouth. Do this by holding the vapour in your mouth (not your lungs) and slowly close your mouth, then breathing in relatively hard through your nose. The important thing to remember is to have enough breath left after initially breathing the vapour into your mouth.

Note: There is a slight alternative to this known as the Bane. This is exactly the same technique but you smile, showing your teeth whist performing the French inhale. This produced stands of vapour instead of one solid flow. Try it, it’s pretty cool!

More Advanced Vape Tricks – For Serious Vapers!

That’s the quick and easy vape tricks out the way, so now let’s get on with the more impressive tricks that take a lot of practice, but when done right is just purely amazing. This is a completely different field from above as it does take a lot of time to master. It’s probably best that you get hold of one of the best box mods or best vape pens for these tricks, as you are going to need a lot more vapor to make the trick look even better.

Most of the more advanced vape tricks are variations or use the blowing o’s or smoke rings along with another trick. We’re going to start with the smoke rings and show you the more advanced smoke tricks you can perform with this.


Blowing O’s aka Smoke or Vape Rings

Blowing O’s or Vape Rings

More than likely you know exactly what this is, you’ve seen your friends do it and it does look pretty cool. It involves vaping a relatively large amount of vapour and blowing O’s or rings, out of your mouth.

How it’s done:

The hardest part of this vape trick is to find a technique that works for you. We’re going to cover the easiest way possible here, hopefully, you can utilize this to achieve your own technique to create the biggest ring possible.

First vape as you would usually if you’re doing a normal vape to the lung. Then you want to exhale a small amount of vape to get rid of the exhale vape from around your mouth.

The second part of this trick is getting your mouth into the right shape, this takes practice and does require you to make some adjustments. Bear in mind everyone’s mouth is different, and therefore the shape of your mouth to perform the perfect O will be different to others too. Generally, it needs to start off as if your yawning but trying to hide your teeth with your lips.

Third is the blowing out of the ring or O, again there are a couple of ways of doing this, like using your tongue and tapping on your cheek, but try to master the cough technique as this will help you with later tricks we look at. This is done by performing a tiny controlled cough like motion with your throat, creating a pulse just large enough to push the vapour through your O lips.

That’s it really, the rest is just practise practise, and of course, practise!


Push & Bend O’s

Pushing vape rings

This is really another step to blowing O’s but does look pretty cool. It involves blowing an O and moving it with your hand which increases in size and moves exactly where you want it to go!

How It’s Done:

You do need to master blowing an O and in this case, it has to be a pretty fast moving O. Have your hand by your face whilst doing this, to avoid any unnecessary breezy when moving into position. Once you’ve blown out your O, follow it with you flat shaped hand, about 2 inches behind, making sure not to break the O. It is this that takes the time after you have perfected your O of course.


Double & Triple O’s

Double and Triple Os Vape trick

You can see we are moving on pretty quickly here, but once you’ve mastered the blowing of the O, the next obvious trick is how to perform the double or even triple O ring.

This is where you have O rings coming from both sides of your mouth and even in the centre.

How it’s Done:

You do have to master blowing O’s or rings before you start this trick and you also need some pretty thick clouds so try to pick a juice that’s relatively higher in VG content, i.e. 70% or more.

The first thing is to place 2 fingers in the centre of your mouth and opening your mouth in the same way as you did when blowing regular O’s.

Secondly, you need to perform a similar technique you mastered earlier when blowing out the O’s, using the cough action, but a lot more scaled down and more rapid. This should be producing double O’s now.

Thirdly, slightly open your fingers on your lips to produce a third hole in the centre of your mouth and adjust your airflow to suit. This should now be producing triple O’s.

It does mean playing around with your cough, to perfect and takes even more time to perfect than blowing O’s.


JellyFish Vape Trick

The JellyFish Vape Trick

Ok, now you’re ready for what we think is the coolest vape trick, the JellyFish. This is where you blow a large O ring and follow through the centre with just the right amount of vapour to produce a perfectly looking JellyFish floating around your room!

How It’s Done

So you thought mastering the O was difficult, well be prepared to practise just the same amount of time again to perfect your JellyFish!

This trick involves three of the tricks you have already learnt previously, ie:

  1. Blowing O’s
  2. Pushing O’s
  3. Ghost hit

The first thing you want to do is blow a nice big O and start following it at the same pace the O is moving.

With your hand slowly push the O until it’s reached the required size, whilst doing this take another drag from your vape mod.

Slowly get behind the O with your mouth and perform the Ghost hit without actually drawing it back into your mouth. This is the bit that takes the practise as you can distort the O with any movement from your arms or face.

Top 5 Sub-Ohm Tanks


Sub ohm tanks are responsible for transforming the vaping market, ever since the first release back in 2014 these types of tanks have single-handedly kept vapers vaping! To complement the best e-cig or vape mod, you need a good tank, so which are the top 5 Sub-Ohm tanks on the market?

Well to answer that question we have to consider a number of factors like (but not in any specific order):

  1. Capacity – The amount of eliquid the tank holds, higher the better really!
  2. Flavor – How well the tank delivers the flavour from the juice.
  3. Coil longevity – How long a typical coil will last without needing to be replaced.
  4. Airflow – How clear is the airflow and what adjustments can be made.
  5. Cloud content – How much cloud does it produce


So let’s get on with the list of the best sub ohm tanks.


Number 5

The Cleito EXO by Aspire

Aspire Cleito EXO

The Cleito EXO from Aspire is a really well-made tank featuring an easy to adjust top airflow control and made from PCTG and a chemically resistant tank. This is with the aim of enhancing the flavor from your vape and boy does it perform its task! The Cleito Coils are based on the Clapton coils with large wicking areas which also improve the saturation of the organic cotton, avoiding any of those unnecessary dry hit. The coils come in both 0.2-ohm for wattages around 50-75 watts and 0.4-ohm sizes for wattage around 40-60W.

Overall many users are really happy with the improved flavor generated by using the Aspire Cleito EXO. The only drawback we could see is the limitation of adjusting your airflow.

The FireLuke Sub-Ohm Tank

Number 4

FreeMax FireLuke Sub-Ohm Tank

FreeMax the were one of the first to introduce a bubble like tank system to allow a larger capacity of juice. With a top fill and bottom airflow control along with sextuple coil system this tank delivers in taste, volume of cloud and taste.

The tank holds 5 ml of ejuice and as you would expect has a number of different coil options to choose from.

Nice smooth airflow, but with multiple coils you’re going to need more power so really only a dual 18650 battery mod will do! Check out our list of the best vape mods to help. The tank also comes in a whole range of designs and colors making it easy to match both your mod and personal taste.


Number 3

HorizonTech Arco 2 Sub-Ohm Tank

The Arco 2 Sub-Ohm Tank

The Arco 2 Sub-Ohm Tank from HorizinTech is a little secret tank that’s been hiding in the background of most review sites for a longtime but one tank that should be considered!

With this tank, HorizonTech has introduced a parallel 0.2-ohm coil system which produces some of the best flavors from a coil we have seen, not sure if the flax paper they have also installed in the coil makes any difference, but this coil just works!  They have a number of designs available some include a colored glass option whilst others are clear.

Overall an awesome flavor and vapor produced by this tank, their new innovative flax paper parallel coil system is one great producing coil! Make sure you check out our vape deals page as many of these tanks often appear at crazy discounted and cheap prices!

The TFV8 Sub-ohm Tanks from SMOK

Number 2


Whether it’s the Big Baby Beast, X-Baby, TFV8 Cloud Beast, or any other design based on the TFV8 coil these tanks rock and probably one of the most popular out there right now. It’s true that SMOK produces a lot of different version of this tank and are constantly tweaking the design but in our opinion, the TFV8 has it all.

You just have to look at all the starter kits that include this tank, to see how well it works with all sorts of setups! Most of these tanks hold around 5ml of juice, have a top fill system with a top sliding cap to make it even easier and really decent airflow. This particular tank seems to be a favorite with smokers who are looking for the best e-cig to quit smoking as the resistance and coil choice is so vast.

The taste and vapor content are really good here and with an easy to adjust airflow and multiple coils available it doesn’t take long to tune in your perfect vape!


Number 1

The Crown 3 Sub-Ohm Tank

Uwell Crown 3 Sub-Ohm Tank

Well as the name suggests this is the 3rd version of this tank, and they seem to have got everything right at last! Well the other version wasn’t that bad either!

Again another 5ml tank which seems to be a common amount with our top 5, it also boasts an anti-leaking top fill system with dual ports to allow air to escape, a simple plug and pull system to replace the coils. The 3 slot adjustable airflow is mounted on the bottom and the coils are the vertical mounted with 3 wicking slots.

Overall this tank produces some of the best flavors and vape clouds on the market, regardless of the e-liquid flavor we tried. Not really sure why as there is no real great innovative technique used here, but sometimes things just work and that’s certainly the case with the Uwell Crown 3 Sub-Ohm Tank.

CBD Oil To Vape – The Best CBD Vape Oils and User Guide


CBD Vape Oil, CBD Hemp Oil and CBD E-liquid

There seems to be a lot of discussions about CBD oils for vaping right now and with that comes a lot of confusion! In this guide you will learn the basics of CBD oil, how to vape it and hopefully, understand exactly what it is and the difference with other types of cannabis oils on the market.


The Basics of CBD Oil

CBD is short for Cannabidiol and is derived from the hemp of the male cannabis plant, it is because of this production method that the term CBD hemp oil is often misused to describe this CBD vape oil. Although the two terms are often used to describe the same thing, they are not the same at all:
Basics of CBD

  • CBD Hemp Oil: Typically used in lotions, balms, and other oils that can be rubbed directly onto the skin. They are sometimes also included in
  • CBD Vape Oil: Made specifically to be vaped

Therefore it is obvious to state: Do not try to vape CBD Hemp oils that were not made specifically for vaping!

One huge advantage with CBD Vape Oil is that you can vape it in your regular vape mod or vape pen, just fill the tank as you would any eliquid, add additional flavors if you like and vape away!


CBD Extract from marijuana

Is CBD Marijuana?

When everyone talks about cannabis or marijuana they automatically think about getting high. In fact marijuana has 2 key checmical compounds:

  1. Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – This is marijuana’s most active ingredient and is the compound responsible for these mind-altering highs you experience when smoking cannabis.
  2. Cannabidiol (CBD) – This compound is not psychoactive so you will not experience this high, however, it does produce some changes to the body and is well known and documented for its medical benefits.

Note: Cannabis contains between 6-20% THC, whilst CBD Vape oil typically contains less than 0.3% THC as it cannot be withdrawn completely.

If your looking to vape cannibis then you best look at dry herb vaporizers as these devices have been specifically designed to vape, yes you’ve got it, dry herbs aka cannibis!

Is CBD Oil Vape Legal

Is CBD Vape Oil Legal?

This may seem weird, but CBD oil is not extracted directly from cannabis plants, instead, it comes from the 100% legal form of industrial hemp! This just means that the THC properties have already been removed (with less than 0.3%). This is available freely on the open market to be used as you would like.  From this hemp, the Vape oil is produced using other liquids such as PG and VG.

This process of producing the CBD Vape oil, make it 100% legal within all 50 states of the United States (including the District of Columbia).

The health benefits of CBD oil when vaped

Health Benefits of Vaping CBD Oil

There are a number of studies and medical uses of CBD which include the following:

  • Anti-anxiety
  • Anti-depressants
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Prevents plaque build up in your arteries
  • Anti-prokinetic
  • Stimulates bone growth and strengthens bones
  • Appetite control

These are just a small handful of uses of CBD oils.

Concentrates of CBD oil vape

What Concentrate of CBD Vape Oil Do I Need?

This is very hard to determine, as everyone is different in size and their responsive to CBD will also be different. As opposed to nicotine types of e-liquid it is recommended to start with a low concentrate at around 100-250mg and slowly work your way up to around 400-1000mg per 30ml bottle if need be. If you start too high, you may feel a little sick.  One thing to add, the higher the concentrate the higher the price!

Most CBD Vape oils are now nicotine free, but you can combine your e-liquids to get the perfect blend!


What Flavor CBD Vape Oil Should You Pick?

CBD vape oils are known to have a bit of an earthy and grassy taste, hence why many manufacturers of CBD vape oils mask it by adding additional flavors. This really is up to you though, as you know taste is very subjective!

Many vapers actually use half of their favorite e-liquid and half of the CBD Vape oil in their tanks, to produce their perfect tasting vapor!



The Best CBD Vape Oils

We take a look at the most popular CBD Vape Oils to give you a head start with the best on the market:

Why Is Vaping Considered as Smoking


Why do So Many Consider Vaping To Be Smoking

Me vaping a modLately there has been a massive upsurge in the amount of people vaping, this is mainly thanks to the development of vaping products and the release of some of the best e cig products the market has ever seen. I notice more vapers now than I do smokers.

I often find myself chasing after smokers to get a whiff of that divine smell being inhaled. Although I haven’t smoked for a long time I still enjoy the smell of a burning cigarette. The after smell, however, I do not like! For any vapers who still smoke or any smokers watching this, take a big whiff of an ashtray or one of those butt stubs in your local pub. This is what you smell like after a cigarette.


Nights Out

On a night out, I often stand in the smoking area sucking in those evil fumes. I have to stand out there now due to every pub and restaurant deciding that vapers are the same as smokers and must be banished to the same place as the other lepers. There is no logic behind them doing it. One place done it and told their friends so they have all now followed suit. I prefer being outside in the pissing rain freezing my ass off just to have three puffs on my top bit followed by a battle with the crowd to get back to where I was standing.

Vapinng a vape pen in the office

In The Office

At work I recently asked my boss for a vaping shelter as I don’t want to contaminate my lungs from those nasty cigarettes. Obviously I was testing my boss. I couldn’t really give a hoot about where I vape. As we are living in such a PC society, I thought I would push the boundaries. The answer I received almost instantly was no. I then justified my reasons and a week later one turned up and was put right next to the smoking shelter. Straight away it had people in the smoking shelter looking with envy, as this was a new, warmer looking shelter. It was like us vapers were now the kings.


Vapers Vs Smokers

It didn’t last long, as those ghastly smokers soon started throwing their litter and butts into our kingdom. A war had broken out between, what had so far been an integrated understanding for each other. Orange peel was the straw that broke the camel’s back. One of them had peeled their orange and stuck it to the internal walls of our palace. Enough was enough. I asked my boss if he could banish the smokers from the site as the pose a fire risk and that it would encourage healthier living with the staff.

The SMOK Stick X8 laying on its side

The following week I was greeted by an angry mob. They were crowded around me snarling, through their blackened teeth. Well what they had left of them. With all of them showing me what I had done and voicing their opinions, I smiled. I looked them all in the eye, made my way into the vapers kingdom, took a massive puff on my new Smok ProColor 225W mod and exhaled. It must have looked like a ninja dropping the smoke bomb and disappearing. The first victory for vapers in centuries. One of the smokers was heard walking away saying that the vape cloud they had been engulfed in smelt really nice.

Talking to a brick wall about vaping

Talking To a Brick Wall

All joking aside it does bring up a serious point, why is vaping considered to be the same thing as smoking by many when it clearly isn’t. I have many debates with people who have no knowledge of vaping and how vaping works and still I am talking to a brick wall. It appears that because vaping produces a cloud that looks like cigarette smoke and contains nicotine, which by itself is as harmful as caffine, they will not be persuaded otherwise! I say to them, do you consider the steam from a kettle boiling to be harmful and they say no! When I suggest the similarities to vaping, they all look at me with disbelief and that I am a mad man!

I go further as I use an RTA, I take the cap off so they can see the coil and the cotton dangling into the eliquid, when I explain the core principles, similar to the kettle we were just talking about, i.e. the cotton soaks in the e-liquid and the coil heats to vaporize the liquid thus producing a vapor, they still look at me with the words “yea BUT” soon to follow! Even when I talk about the history of Diacetyl and the scare of popcorn lung, explaining what vape manufacturers have done in order to prevent this, the words “yea BUT” still follow!


To Conclude

I have come to the conclusion that everyone seems to be an expert in vaping, or at least have an opinion of how harmful it is. I have learn’t not to talk about the healthy side of vaping to anyone who has not tried it or doesn’t want to understand how vaping actually works. Unfortunetely this subject always seems to come up whenever I vape around a non vaper or non smoker (actually the ex-smokers are the worst), so excuse me when I just punch them in the mouth when they comment, it just saves a lot of time!

What are Mechanical Mods?


Introduction to Mechanical Mods

Example of a mechanical box mod
Digital cigarettes and vape mods are superb units, and are available quite a lot of totally different varieties. Most vapers are accustomed to the standard cigalike e-cigarettes, vape pens, or field mods. There’s one other sort of mod, nevertheless, that’s turning into more and more common in recent times. It’s the mechanical mod – or mech mod, for brief. Many vapers haven’t any actual concept about what these mods actually do, nevertheless. So, what are mechanical mods? We’re glad you requested!


The Fundamentals

Most digital cigarettes are straightforward sufficient to know. They arrive with a battery of some type – both inner or exterior (most use the exterior 18650 battery) and a vaporizer, often a tank. That tank has an atomizer that creates the vapor from no matter e-liquid you select to make use of. It’s composed of a heating coil and wick, with the digital resistance largely decided by the kind of coil in use, the system’s energy, and the temperature it generates. With a lot of the greatest e cigs, these elements and results are all self-regulated.

Most mods available on the market at the moment are generally known as regulated mods and supply variable wattage and voltage. That is ruled and managed by a pc chip, with customers typically getting access to temperature controls that provide them management over the whole lot from wattage used to temperature generated. These mods are additionally usually outfitted with security options that shield the units and customers from hurt.

There are sometimes 2 kinds of mechanical mod; the usual mechanical mod that resembles a vape pen and the mechanical field mod, an instance of every is proven under:

A vape pen and box mechanical mod


Unregulated mechanical mod by Geek Vape

Regulated or Unregulated

With mechanical mods or mechs, you could have a completely totally different sort of system. They’re unregulated mods as a result of they lack the chips that sometimes coordinate the connection between atomizer and battery. Consequently, these units function at a continuing full output of voltage from the battery. There are not any actual electronics in these models, they usually thus rely completely upon the consumer to regulate their operations. That freedom provides many advantages however can pose distinctive dangers as nicely.



In case your considering of utilizing a mechanical mod, then we might advise you to get to know the security necessities of the batteries you’re utilizing. All of the horror tales within the paper you hear about vaping explosions are sometimes utilizing modified mechanical mods with batteries that can’t deal with the load. Fortunate for you, we have now an entire information simply wanting on the security recommendations on 18650 Lithium-Ion battery that you need to learn!

In fact you will get hung up on all of the well being points regarding vaping, like popcorn lung and the consequences of turning into hooked on vaping, however these considerations are associated to all vaping units and never simply mechanical mods.
Example of battery fire


Sub Ohm Vaping

These units are additionally ideally suited and to be trustworthy, primarily used for sub-ohm vaping. We’re not speaking about the usual sub-ohm vaping that you would be able to get from most of the self-regulated mods nowadays, however that high-level sub-ohm vaping most popular by most of the most critical cloud-chasers. Mech mods can be utilized with nearly any sort of coil which you can put in them, and also you by no means want to fret concerning the system not working correctly. Regardless of how low the resistance is, a mech mod gained’t balk on the prospect of firing itself up.

Regulated mods gained’t permit that flexibility since their security options forestall you from utilizing non-traditional elements. When the resistance is just too low with a type of mods, their chips merely refuse to function as regular. As you may guess, that flexibility allows mech mod customers to really customise their vaping expertise and benefit from the outcomes they crave.

The benefits of the Mechanical Mod


On the plus aspect, these units can supply incomparable flexibility and energy. Since there are not any regulating options, vapers who use mechanical mods can set theirs as much as meet their very own distinctive specs. They will customise their units as they see match, and don’t have to fret about digital circuitry interfering with their plans. That makes them a horny choice for hobbyists and tech-oriented vapers who need most management over their vaping expertise.

Lastly, mech mods supply different advantages. They’re extraordinarily sturdy since they lack the digital circuitry that sometimes wears down over time. They provide a easy design as properly, which is one thing that a variety of builders favor. Management, nevertheless, stays an important profit and continues to be the primary cause that mech mod customers choose these units.

Warning signIn fact, there are drawbacks. Whereas they seem easier than regulated mods, mech mods do include a studying curve. And probably the most essential elements of that studying curve includes studying to make use of your mech mod in a protected method. Keep in mind, these units don’t have the usual protecting options that the majority different vaping units use to guard customers and gear. That makes them extra harmful for novices to make use of, which is why most specialists advocate that new vapers and people unfamiliar with the know-how keep away from these primary setups. To be protected, you really do have to know the right way to deal with these units.



On the finish of the day, although, mechanical mods fill an essential area of interest want inside the vaping group. And that’s a distinct segment that’s rising with every passing yr, as many vapers get extra expertise with e-cig know-how and proceed to search for a greater vaping expertise. The development proper now’s shifting towards larger acceptance of mech mod vaping, so it’s one thing that the majority intermediate-level vapers will need to take a look at at a while or one other.

How To Select The Proper Battery For Your Mod


Selecting The Proper 18650 Batteries

In the event you take pleasure in debate about batteries and deciphering obscure references to Ohms, wattage, discharge fee and Amperage, simply stroll into the midst of a dialog at a vaping conference! Though the topic appears considerably impenetrable to the brand new vaper, there’s truly an easy strategy to get vaping safely with out having to dive too deeply into the topic. We’ll get you headed in the best course in a number of very easy steps.

The Great 18650 battery

Li-Ion 18650 Batteries are the Bomb

Begin with one easy reality: Most of us grew up with AA and AAA batteries within the residence and have a favorite among the many Duracells, Energizers or others, however though 18650 batteries seem like a extra highly effective or souped-up model of an AA battery, they don’t seem to be the identical factor in any respect.

Li-Ion 18650 batteries are in a special class altogether, and we should train some care to make sure we don’t grow to be a battery explosion statistic, uncommon as they’re. If you wish to vape like a mini steam locomotive, you’ll want to seek out the suitable gear and match it to the right battery.

Asking ‘What’s the greatest 18650 battery?’ is like asking ‘What’s the greatest automotive?’. Greatest automotive for what? Like every little thing else we purchase, vapers should decide whether or not their batteries are match for objective. Now, we’d such as you to purchase a battery already so you will get vaping! So let’s take a look:


Life’s Huge Sliding Scale

A lot of the shopper decisions we make include some type of a sliding scale of execs and cons, elements that make an merchandise kind of appropriate for its function. Sports activities automotive house owners often love velocity and usually tend to buy high-speed tyres than a suburban taxi mum, who would in all probability choose to get extra mileage from her tyres.

When attending the social occasion of the yr, my associate may exhibit her outfit with a pair of killer heels, even when it means she will’t mingle as a result of her ft harm! The large sliding scale forces her to decide on between trend and luxury to get one thing that’s ‘match for the actual objective’.

Choice of pros and cons


The Battery Sliding Scale

You need to weigh up two main elements when choosing 18650 batteries, retaining in thoughts the symbiotic stability between these two specs. They’re:

  • Density – we often imply ‘how lengthy the battery can final’ or utilization time. Density is measured in milli-Amp hours (variously depicted as mAh or maH, MAh).
  • Discharge – we often imply the speed of present which the battery can ship, we have a tendency to think about this as ‘energy’ as a result of the upper the present, the upper the wattage output. Discharge is measured in steady Amps (A).

A 3000mah 18650 battery exampleIn concept, your 3000mAh battery ought to draw 3000 milliAmp for the interval of 1 hour, or 1000 milliAmp for 3 hours. In follow, cells will not be 100% environment friendly, however it’s a good guideline, so it’s clear that a 3000mAh will last more than a 1500mAh battery.

Within the perfect world, we might select the very best mAh and highest amperage battery attainable. Sadly, know-how isn’t there but, and the small measurement of those cells means there’ll all the time be a tradeoff between capability and excessive present.

Selecting a excessive energy battery means accepting decrease capability, and vice versa. This ‘sliding scale’ is non-negotiable and unavoidable: The upper the density, the decrease the discharge price. Batteries are getting higher although, and there are whispers that the inimitable Elon Musk is engaged on 18650 batteries that may quickly blow our socks off!

Because of this see-saw relationship between capability and discharge, batteries are grouped into three broad ranges: excessive capability/low energy, excessive energy/low capability, and a number of other variants that fall someplace in between. Your vaping gear will decide the place you go on the sliding scale.


Security of 18650 Batteries

Now this can be a essential topic, we have now all learn the headlines about vaping explosions, and most of the time it’s due to the battery that’s getting used. To cowl this topic pretty we have now a seperate article all concerning the security and dealing with of Lithium-ION batteries that you must learn!


Reverting to Battery Sort

To make issues simpler all spherical, the broad ranges have been additional categorised into 5 Forms of batteries. This helps new vapers, as a result of it signifies that that you simply simply want to decide on the right class in your specific mod. The battery varieties are labelled A-B-C-D-E.

The types of batteries abcde



Each producer has their very own color-coding system to assist customers select the right sort of battery. Simply keep in mind that each firm has their very own system; a inexperienced battery could also be a Samsung Sort A, however may be a special model Sort E. All the time examine the data printed on the battery to make sure you have the right battery ‘Sort’.



Extremely Excessive Density (As much as 3500 mAh) Excessive Density (As much as 3000 mAh) Medium Density (As much as 2500 mAh) Low Density (As much as 2000 mAh) Very Low Density (As much as 1500 mAh)

three Straightforward Steps To Select The Right Battery For Your Vape

  1. Take a look at your mod and examine whether or not it’s a regulated or unregulated (mechanical) mod. These two forms of mods differ. Mechanical mods are used solely by superior customers who possess a great information of batteries and could be ‘fine-tuned’ to heights of efficiency not attainable with regulated mods. Examples of regulated mods might be present in our listing of the most effective field mods. We haven’t truly reviewed any unregulated mods as they don’t seem to be advisable to the overall vaping group.
  2. Subsequent, take a look at the battery sort chart and select the right sort. For those who aren’t positive, sub-Ohm vapers ought to err on the aspect of warning and relatively decide a high-drain (excessive present/Amp) battery simply in case you flooring it in a second of utmost enthusiasm! The larger mechanical mods can draw critical present, and you will want batteries constructed for that objective. We advise that superior customers brush up on their ‘ohm’s regulation’ earlier than placing collectively their sub-ohm gear, and to fireside it with an applicable battery.
  3. Search for the most effective battery in school. We’ve put collectively an inventory with some good choices which might be discovered on our listing of the perfect 18650 batteries for vaping.


All Li-Ion Batteries Are Not Equal

Pause before you purchase re-wrapped batteries and by no means purchase recognized clones or the most cost effective manufacturers. It’s additionally good to seek out and help a trusted vendor who gained’t swap good batteries for fakes. A lot of the greatest e cig producers might supply their very own batteries, however do a little bit of digging to determine which model it truly is to be 100% protected. Be prudent when charging and storing your batteries and kit, and luxuriate in your vape!

A Evaluate Of The Greatest 18650 Batteries For Vaping


18650 Batteries

There are few issues worse than to get caught brief with low batteries when you are out and about. Good batteries are usually not low cost, and we anticipate them to final some time. In a earlier weblog we checked out the reason for vaping explosions and it got here right down to the battery. Whenever you select the right sort of battery on your mod, you improve the security – and enjoyable issue – of your vaping expertise. Listed here are a number of information that bear repeating:


Fast Battery Information

Things to know about 18650 batteriesThe most effective field and vape mods requires a provide of long-lasting power, and the battery have to be able to discharging at a good price, for lengthy durations, at excessive capability.

  • Sturdiness is expressed in milliAmp-hours.
  • Discharge fee (Amperage or Amp) is how a lot present you possibly can draw from the battery at any given time. This can be a essential issue for sub-ohm vapers.
  • Wattage is decided by the mod (automated setting in case of a regulated mod, customized setting in case of a mechanical mod).
  • The larger the present (Amp) score of the battery, the upper the wattage you’ll be able to vape at.
  • Customers who vape at excessive wattage want extra Amps.
  • Customers who vape at low wattage want decrease Amps. Decrease Amp-rated batteries present longer vaping occasions.
  • Utilizing a low Amp battery at excessive Wattage will overwhelm the capability of the battery. It might overheat, construct up strain and vent, and even explode.


Things to consider before you buyEarlier than You Purchase

  • Lithium-Ion batteries begin to degenerate once they depart the manufacturing unit, whether or not you employ them or not. All the time examine the manufacturing date of a batch.
  • Attempt to maintain a report of if you begin utilizing the brand new batteries and the way typically you recharge them. If the batteries are of poor high quality, you’ll shortly discover and may keep away from a repeat purchase.
  • All the time pair your cells and mark them with a sticker to make certain you don’t combine them up. Matching a battery that’s virtually spent with a brand new battery will have an effect on efficiency markedly.
  • Check new or suspect batteries with the right gear.
  • Onboard recharging could also be handy, however it’s a good suggestion to take away used batteries from the mod and substitute with batteries charged on an exterior charger because it helps to maintain the cost ranges completely even in your pairs.
  • If a Li-Ion 18650 battery weighs lower than 40 – 44g, it might be a pretend.


Safety signSecurity First

It doesn’t matter what model you purchase, watch out for unscrupulous operators. Batteries are purported to be manufactured underneath stringent high quality laws in ‘clear rooms’ to stop any stray particles from getting into the battery. Low cost batteries from China are flooding the market, and generally, we all know nothing of their fame or willingness to stay to manufacturing guidelines. Check every battery rigorously, monitor temperature whereas in use, and repeatedly look at for indicators of decay.  Check out our 9 Security and Dealing with Ideas article which ought to cowl a lot of the security precautions.

Properly-Recognized Battery Manufacturers

The market leaders resembling LG, Panasonic, Sony and Samsung do a number of R&D to make sure they keep on the head of the pack. Additionally, you will be conversant in Hitachi, Kokam, Toshiba, SAFT and BYD.
Backside Line – Purchase with confidence.


Little-Recognized Battery Manufacturers

Because of the excessive demand for Li-Ion batteries, a number of latest producers have stepped into the fray. A few of these corporations merely copy good merchandise. A notable few corporations corresponding to LeClanche, Amperex, MicroVast, Electrovaya and Johnson Controls additionally do their very own improvement and might be considered the ‘Up & Comers’ of the business.

Backside Line – Assist so as to add to the status and physique of data by holding good data of their efficiency.


Re-Wrapped Battery Manufacturers

Example of a rewrapped 18650 batterySome customers are involved concerning the security and high quality of re-wrapped manufacturers. The battery manufacturing course of is just a little like baking a batch of brownies – though you employ the identical elements and course of, there could also be tiny variances within the last product.

That’s the reason producers check every battery and classify it based on stringent necessities. High quality batteries go into the A-bin, and there are B and C-bins for batteries that present slight variances from the norm. Batteries from the B and C-bins – and typically A-Bin batteries – are bought to different corporations who re-wrap the cells with a PVC coating and promote it underneath totally different model names.

A lot of the corporations who re-brand function with excessive care and goodwill, however there are disreputable operators within the business who use this chance to promote inferior or unsafe merchandise as ‘re-brands’. They even declare extreme efficiency ranges, so the subsequent time you see a battery rated at larger than 30Amps, be warned, it’s definitely not true!

Backside Line: Purchase with nice warning. Re-wrapping corporations don’t do costly R&D and may, subsequently, provide high quality merchandise at a lower cost, however all the time examine that it’s certainly a re-wrapped battery and never an inferior product masquerading as a re-wrap. A few of the re-wrap manufacturers have earned their very own following. You might have seen a few of these names come up: Pegasus, Orbtronic, Robiton, NiteCore, GTL, Efest, Basen, EagleTac, UltraFire, Vamped, EnerPower, Xtar, Fenix and lots of extra.


The Battery Class Desk

This desk has been in use within the business for some time and helps customers to select the suitable batteries for his or her gear. As know-how improves and producers handle to cram each excessive capability and excessive discharge scores into their newer batteries, the strains between the beforehand clear classes for batteries (5 varieties, from A to E) are blurring and also you’ll see increasingly overlap between the ‘varieties’. In case you are unsure, somewhat err on the aspect of warning. Sub-ohm vapers ought to moderately purchase high-drain (excessive Amp) batteries than by chance wreck their battery with extreme excessive Wattage calls for.

Extremely Excessive Density (As much as 3500 mAh) Excessive Density (As much as 3000 mAh) Medium Density (As much as 2500 mAh) Low Density (As much as 2000 mAh) Very Low Density (As much as 1500 mAh)
