How do I get started vaping?
Well, it depends on why you want to start vaping. Generally, we recommend getting a starter device. If your goal is to quit smoking, then we recommend getting a nice starter device. But if you want to get into vaping to just enjoy the flavors and learn some tricks, then a cheap starter pen is the way to go.
What should I look for in a starter kit?
Certain specs are more important to certain people. When buying your first starter kit, you should factor in reliability, battery life, tank capacity, resistance, and pen size. All of those factors will have a huge impact on your vaping experience. Going with a trusted brand is a safe bet.
Are vape pens dangerous?
Just remember that we are in the era of exploding cell phones. I would have told you cell phones weren't dangerous a couple years ago. Now, I wouldn't go out on a limb and say that for fear of getting sued. Any electronic device with a battery carries risk but certain devices carry more risk than others. Generally speaking, regulated devices are pretty safe. They are jam packed with safety features like low voltage, low resistance, and short circuit protection. Unregulated mods are the dangerous ones of the bunch. They don't have any safety features. If any of the devices on our site are unregulated, we will state it explicitly. At the time of this writing, we don't have any unregulated devices on our site.
What is a vaporizer?

Do vape pens create smoke?
No, vapor is different than smoke. Vape pens create vapor or steam, but don't actually heat the compound to the point of combustion, which is what creates smoke.
Is vaping healthier than smoking?
Due to legal liability reasons, we can't give you a definitive answer. Some experts say vaping is much safer, others say it's just as bad. If you disagree with the FDA, they can come after you at their leisure. Democracy! We encourage you to conduct your own research on the topic.
What does RDA stand for?
RDA stands for rebuildable dripping atomizer. An RDA is an advanced atty that sits on top of your mod but it doesn't have a reservoir to hold e-liquid. You have to drip vape juice on top of your coils and then take a few drags. Just repeat the dripping and dragging process for as long as you want to vape. You can read more about RDAs here.
What does RTA stand for?
RTA stands for rebuildable tank atomizer. It's similar to an RDA except it has a reservoir for vape juice. You will have to build your own coils unless you buy one that allows you to also use regular coils.
What is an RDTA?
An RDTA is a rebuildable dripping tank atomizer. It is what it sounds like, a combination of an RDA and an RDTA. It's a very advanced device so we don't recommend it unless you are looking to experience all that vaping has to offer.
What does RBA stand for?
RBA stands for rebuildable base atomizer. It is sort of an all encompassing term that includes any atomizer that has a rebuildable base. This includes RTAs, RDAs, and RDTAs. Some atomizers have options where you can switch between a rebuildable base and pre-built coils.
