Common Questions About Vaping and Our Las Vegas Vape Shop

What is a personal vaporizer?

A personal vaporizer (vaper) is a small device which is battery powered and is in the shape of a cigarette or a small box with a tube connected.  The functionality of the device is to change liquids which are placed into a chamber (e-liquids or e-juices) into a vapor through the use of an atomizing element.  The e-liquid that is transformed into vapor is inhaled into the lungs.  The devices need no electrical connection and are portable.  The flavors of the e-juices are nearly limitless, and many custom blends are available on the market to satisfy the tastes of the vaper.

Why do people vape?

All people who vape will have their own reason for choosing to do so.  Many people are attempting to transition away from traditional smoking products through vaping, and find the ability to inhale nicotine without the smoke and other chemicals to be a better alternative than patches, gum or other stop-smoking methods.  Other people simply like the flavor or feeling of the vapor being ingested.

Are E-Cigarettes and Vaping The Same Thing?

Although most people will assume there is no difference between the use of an e-cigarette (which is designed to look and feel like a traditional cigarette, but uses vaping technology to deliver vapor instead of smoke) and a personal vaporizer, the real differences lie in the motivation for use.  E-cigarettes are typically used to simulate traditional smoking for people who are trying to quit, whereas vaping enthusiasts find many personal reasons to choose to vape that are not involving quitting smoking.  The main difference between a device that can be considered an e-cigarette and a personal vaporizer is the size and shape of the device, with e-cigarettes being the same size and shape as cigarettes and personal vaporizers being larger in shape and generally containing a square shaped device.

Why are so many people switching from smoking to vaping?

Once again, it is impossible to list all of the reasons that people are making the switch from smoking to vaping, there are many benefits of vaping that are very obvious.  First and foremost is the fact that you are not inhaling smoke and therefor are not exposing yourself to the carcinogens that are contained in smoke.  Vapor does not contain the same chemicals as smoke, many of which are quite dangerous.  Because you are not inhaling smoke, there is no smoke smell that must be endured by yourself or others around you, and in addition to there not being an offensive smell there are also no yellow stains on your clothing or fingers or teeth that go with smoking.  The vaping process is far less expensive than smoking cigarettes or cigars, which vary in price from state to state but are all quite expensive when compared to the equipment and juices of vaping.  Lastly, the components of vaping are re-usable, and once you purchase your personal vaporizer you can re-use it many times.
