What is Vaping

Vaping: A person using a personal vaporizer AKA E cig.

PV and APV: Stands for “Personal vaporizer” or “Advanced Personal vaporizer” This is the term recognized in the “ecig” market as a more accurate name for the modern day devices used for the vaporization of E-liquid.

eGo: This is the most commonly used PV or ecig, they come in different sizes and colours and usually are manually operated devices via a small button located at the top of the device, right above the sealed battery tube. They come in different battery configurations and are often times just referred to as a battery. Vapouroxide carries exclusively Vo2 eGo style batteries.

510: This is the type of connection that most modern pv’s use, it’s the connector part that your tanks screw into. All of the accessories that Vapouroxide sells are 510 threaded.

Atomizer: The atomizer connects to the battery, and contains the heating element which produces the vapour. Atomizers are considered throw-away parts. The atomizer WILL GO OUT. It is highly recommended that you keep at least 2 extra atomizers at all times. The atomizer will last anywhere from 3 weeks to 5 months.

Tank: A juice delivery system that uses a variety of different methods to get juice to an atomizer to be warmed then vaped. Common tanks would be the ce4 style tank or the vivi nova style tanks that use several wicks that are attached to the atomizer (coil) and hang down into the tank of juice. The Vo2 tanks being bottom filled, smaller wicks are required. The wick being positioned at the bottom means its always primed for use.
Wick, head, coil: These are the replaceable atomizer heads that are used in your repairable tank systems like the Vo2 tanks, vivi novas, Pro tanks. All or any of the names will work, although technically they are called atomizer heads, they are normally available in 3 resistances 1.8, 2,4 and 2.8ohms

MAH: Milliamps per hour

650mah Battery: This is the size of the battery. This battery will stay charged for 6-8 hours.(depending on how much you use it during the day and how high you have your voltage set)

1000mah Battery: This battery stays charged for 10-12 hours. (depending on how much you use it during the day and how high you have your voltage set)
Pass-through: A pv that can be vaped while it is charging. This one requires the passthrough charging cord.

Dripping: This method is when you would use a drip tip (mouthpiece that goes on the atomizer) and you drip your juice directly onto the atomizer(heating coil). It takes three drops which is good for about 5-10 puffs (depending on voltage, and size of your pulls) however, you have to continue dripping. This provides an excellent throat hit and flavour.

Drip Tips: This is a mouthpiece needed for dripping, that connects directly to the atomizer.

MOD This is a term used to describe the big battery pv’s the ones that usually look sort of like flashlights. The name mod comes from the fact that they were originally a “modified electronic cig” Modified for usage with bigger batteries. There are several different shapes and sizes of “mods” from boxes, to big tubes so basically anything that is not Vo2 or alike is considered a mod, or more accurately an APV

Tips: This is just a shortened way of referring to a drip tip, although commonly used to describe the tanks, however that is inaccurate. A tank is a tank, and it comes with a tip.

Flints: See burners description

Elements: See Flints description

Throat Hit: This is the feeling in your throat that you receive from traditional cigarettes.
RBA: Rebuildable Atomizer. These are your more advanced systems that are intended not for the novice vaper. The atomizer section is rebuilt by you taking the raw materials making your own wicks and coils, you can’t just buy new burners for these. (:
