Although there are many variations of vaping devices, they all work on the same principle and contain 3 main properties; A Device (also know as a Battery or Mod), an Atomizer (heating element) and E-Liquid/E-Juice. The Device powers the Atomizer which contains a coil & wick which then heats up the E-Liquid absorbed by that wick to a temperature that produces Vapor which can then be inhaled.
There are 2 main types of Devices; Regulated Devices and Un-Regulated Devices.
Regulated Devices contain circuitry that regulates how much power is being sent to the atomizer from the battery. These can range from beginner devices that have a one-button operation with a set amount of power being sent to the atomizer (14Watts for example) to Variable Wattage/Temperature Control devices that can be manually adjusted by the user to dial in a specific preferred setting. Batteries in regulated devices are either built-in to the device and are charged internally or external batteries that can be replaced and/or removed for charging.
Unregulated devices (also know as Mechanical/Mech mods) contain little to no circuitry, providing the most direct contact between the battery and the atomizer, creating the most power possible sent to the atomizer from the particular battery. Unregulated devices use external high-drain batteries and should be used only by experienced Vapers with an understanding of battery amperage and basic ohm’s law.
There are 3 main types of Atomizers; Tank Atomizers, Rebuildable Tank Atomizers (RTAs) and Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers (RDAs)
Tank Atomizers have replaceable coil heads and a tank that holds E-Liquid. The most simple type of atomizer, simply fit the tank with the corresponding coil head and fill the tank up with the E-Liquid of your choice and, after the wick has absorbed the E-liquid, it’s ready to vape.
Rebuildable Tank Atomizers (RTAs) are like tank atomizers in that you still have a tank to hold your E-Liquid however you wrap your own coil (or use pre-made coils) to insert into the build deck. This style of atomizer gives you options to try different styles of atomizer wire and builds while still having the convenience of a tank to hold E-Liquid
Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers (RDAs) contain a larger build deck with a juice well to hold juice. This style of atomizer provides the best flavour and vapor production and can be fully customisable in the types of atomizer wire and builds used. As there is no tank used in RDAs, you drip your E-Liquid onto the coil and wick which lasts around 3-5 hits then you drip more E-Liquid as the wick starts to dry out.
E-liquid contains 3 main ingredients; Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerin (VG) and Flavouring. Propylene Glycol is used as a flavour carrier and Vegetable Glycerin produces the vapor and these 2 ingredients make up most of the liquid. E-liquids can come in a variety of blends such as 50/50 VG/PG, 60/40 VG/PG, 70/30 VG/PG etc. This is referring to the percentage of these ingredients used in a particular E-Liquid, for example a 50/50 VG/PG blend will have more of the flavour carrying element whereas a 70/30 or Max VG blend will produce more vapor.
Most E-Liquid manufacturers do produce their E-Liquid with the option of nicotine, however it is illegal in Hong Kong to buy and sell E-Liquid containing Nicotine, so we are unable to provide them through The Vape Shop. Although some vapers prefer to have nicotine in their E-Liquid, It’s been proven that many people have successfully transitioned off cigarettes and prefer vaping with nicotine-free E-Liquid.
