  • How To Buy Nicotine E-Cigarettes In Australia

    Confused by vaping laws in Australia? Don't worry, you aren't alone.

    People from all across Australia reach out to us each and every day wondering if they too can start benefiting from vaping and quit smoking. The answer is easy, YES!

    Let's breakdown exactly how to legally buy e-cigarettes in Australia, so you can finally kick the smoking habit with comfort and confidence.

     

    Buy Nicotine E Cigarette Liquid In Australia

    *Vaper Empire is an Australian brand with international operations.

    Is Vaping Illegal In Australia?

    Contrary to what you may have heard, it is NOT illegal to use electronic cigarettes if you live in Australia.
    Every state throughout the country currently allows the use of e cigarettes, vaporizers and all other vaping devices.

    Where Can You Buy Your Vape Device?

    Many Australian states have started to limit or severely restrict the sale of vaporizers by local vape shops in stores or even online, however, it is completely legal to import any vape device from outside of Australia. At Vaper Empire we've been importing our e cigarettes direct to Australians for nearly a decade.

    Can You Buy Nicotine E-Cigs In Australia?

    Australia has strictly ruled against the sale of nicotine in stores, which has stopped vape shops from legally being able to sell anyone nicotine products, however, Australia does allow you to import your e-liquid for personal use. Importing online requires the use of a credit card and creates supplier-customer distance, which greatly prevents the wrongful sale and distribution of vaping products to underage teenagers.

    Order For Personal Use

    For adults who meet the age requirement, it's as easy as ordering online from our international vape store. However, remember to buy 3-months' supply (or less) at a time, which is the only limitation the law currently places on adult Australians importing.

    When ordering nicotine vaping products in this fashion, it is important to remember that you can only order such supplies for personal use. You cannot resell these products once they've arrived. They are yours and only yours.

    Avoid Customs Delays And Import Duties

    When you place your order, also make sure to keep your total order under $1,000 AUD. Ordering over this amount will incur importation duties and unnecessary delivery delays, as customs attempts to assess and collect duties.

    There are no customs fees when importing nicotine e-liquid for personal use so long as the order total is under $1,000 AUD.

    How To Buy Nicotine E-Liquid In Oz

    Now that we've cleared up the rules and regulations, it's time to explain exactly what you need to do in order to buy vaping supplies with nicotine if you live in Australia. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to go about it:

    1. Visit www.vaperempire.com.au (You're already here!)
    2. Pick your all-inclusive Vape Starter Kit
    3. Add up to 3-months' supply of Nicotine E-Liquid

  • Vape Battery Safety

    When it comes to vaping, there are a few things that you absolutely need to have. You’ll need e-liquid, a tank or an atomizer of some kind, and you’ll need a vape battery. All of these things require some level of upkeep, but keeping your battery in safe working condition is especially important.

    You’ve likely heard reports of exploding vape batteries. Tragic circumstances like this are rare, and they’re almost always preventable. There are battery safety procedures that you can follow to keep yourself and those around you safe. Here, we’ll be discussing a few things that you can do to keep vaping as safe as possible. Read on to find out why vape batteries explode and how to keep yours in tip-top shape.

    Why Do Vape Battery’s Explode?

    Vape batteries explode because of something called a “short circuit.” Batteries have a positive side and a negative side. The positive side gives off an electrical current while the negative side is made to receive the current. Electricity travels from the positive side of the battery, through the electrical components of the vaporizer, and back to the negative side of the battery.

    If there's unintended contact between two components that carry current inside the vaporizer, the electrons can use that point of contact as a shortcut, bypassing part of its intended path, resulting in a shorter current. Short-circuits can occur in the battery or within the components of the vaporizer itself. Regardless of where the circuit occurs, it can cause the battery to overheat. Because the electrolyte inside a battery is extremely flammable, the extra heat can sometimes cause it to explode.

    Avoid Vape Battery Explosions

    You’ve probably heard the horror stories. There have been irregular instances of vape batteries exploding, sometimes leaving their users hospitalized. There are a few simple precautions that you can take to help prevent vape battery explosions. Remember these vape battery safety tips to keep yourself and those around you safe.

    Use a Regulated Vaporizer

    Regulated vaporizers have built-in safety features that will keep your battery from short-circuiting. If a regulated vape detects a short-circuit, it’ll lock your vaporizer, and it’ll usually let you know that there’s something wrong with your battery. Unregulated vaporizers don’t have features like this, and if your battery short-circuits, there’s no safeguard to prevent it from exploding.

    Take Care of Your Vape

    Never let your vaporizer come into contact with water. Water is a conductor, so it can easily result in a short-circuit. When refilling your tank, be careful and try not to get e-liquid on your vaporizer. Don’t leave your vaporizer in places that are hotter than usual. Avoid leaving your vaporizer outside in the sun or near an open flame. Unusually high temperatures can cause the electrical components of your vaporizer and battery to degrade, resulting in a short circuit.

    Don’t leave your vaporizer in places with unusually high levels of humidity. Like I said before, water is a conductor that has the potential to cause a short circuit. Humidity can be detrimental to electronic devices, including vaporizers and vape batteries. Don’t leave your vaporizer on the bathroom sink when you take a hot shower, and never leave it on a wet surface.

    Only charge your vape with the charger that came with it. Other chargers may supply the wrong amount of power to your vaporizer’s battery, causing it to overheat. The extra heat can break down the inside components of your battery, increasing the likelihood of a short-circuit.

    Vape Battery Safety

    Avoiding a vape-related explosion is usually as simple as using a good, regulated vaporizer and taking care of it. Don’t get it wet, keep it away from heat and humidity, and don’t charge it with anything but the vaporizer’s included charger. For more vape battery safety tips, we recommend you take a look at the FDA's tips on how to avoid vape battery explosions.

You’ll find vaporizers for every kind of vaper and a long list of e-liquids with a variety of flavours that’ll satisfy anyone’s personal taste.

  • Vaping In Australia: Complete Guide To Laws, Safety, Regulation, & More

    Vaper Empire's Complete Guide To Vaping In Australia

    Whether you’re new to vaping or simply want to learn more about it, you’ve come to the right place. In this guide, we’ll cover the basics of vaping, explain how e-cigarettes came into being, the benefits you’ll experience when switching from smoking to vaping, how to choose the right vaping device or the right e-cigarette and much, much more.

    Before we delve in any further, let’s start from the beginning.

    History of Vaping

    Vaping and e-cigarettes have come a long way, especially in recent years.

    The First Idea

    The first idea about an electronic vaporizer was created by Joseph Robinson in 1927. He even filed for a patent, which he got, but unfortunately, his product never reached the mass market. Nevertheless, his creation is very important when talking about the history of vaping devices since this is the first time someone had the idea about creating a vaping device that resembles the modern-day e-cigarette that we know today.

    The First Prototype

    A couple of decades later, or more specifically in 1965, a man named Herbert A. Gilbert created his so-called “smokeless non-tobacco cigarette”. His goal was to create an alternative to smoking cigarettes, since, according to him, it was foolish to inhale burnt tobacco. His invention served as an example for the modern-day e-cigarette since the main parts of his design are very much alike to those that are being used today.

    While it’s not known whether Joseph Robinson created a prototype for his vaping device in 1927, we know with certainty that Herbert Gilbert not only received a patent for his product but also created a few prototypes that look almost identical to the e-cigarette we have today. However, his product was never mass-produced, mostly due to three reasons.

    The first reason was the fact that the manufacturers he showed his product to decided to wait until his patent expired so they could manufacture the product themselves. The second reason was that the tobacco companies saw this alternative to smoking as a threat to cigarettes, which is why they tried to prevent its development. The third and maybe the most important reason for Herbert’s product’s failure was, simply put, bad timing. In the 60s, cigarette ads were everywhere and people were not yet aware of cigarette tobacco’s negative consequences, so the need for an alternative to smoking wasn’t strong enough.

    That being said, Herbert was obviously ahead of his time since his “smokeless non-tobacco cigarette” served as an example for the e-cigarette that we use today.

    The First Commercial E-Cigarette

    Vaper Empire V-Pack II Series E-Cigarette Kit Meet the V-Pack II e-cigarette starter kit from Vaper Empire, an advanced electronic cigarette starter kit that builds upon the concepts established by the first e-cigarette prototypes.

    We move on to the early 2000s when a Chinese pharmacist and inventor, called Hon Lik, wanted a healthier alternative to smoking. He was an avid smoker, just like his father who died of lung cancer, and using patches didn’t really give him any satisfaction. Due to this reason, as well as his awareness of the harmful consequences cigarettes had, he wanted to quit smoking but desired an alternative, which is how the idea about creating an e-cigarette came into being.

    After creating the design, due to a dream he had about drowning in water which then turned into vapour, he received his patent in 2003. Three years later, his e-cigarette was released to the international public, making progress in Asia, Europe, and the United States as well. However, even though Hon Lik’s e-cigarette started to slowly gain popularity, it wasn’t really convenient to use due to the ultrasonic atomizer and the many moving parts of the design, hence the invention of the cartomizer (an easier to use,  single unit, that combined all moving parts into one and easily screws on to the battery.)The Evolution of the E-Cigarette

    Almost all e-cigarettes that are currently on the market have cartomizers instead of ultrasonic atomizers, thanks to the brothers called Umer and Tariq Sheikh. After the invention of the cartomizer, e-cigarettes suddenly became more user-friendly and were more convenient for commercial use, which is when their popularity really started to grow.

    The first vaping devices were called cig-a-likes, while the improved e-cigarettes that were more efficient with better performance powers were known as vape pens. But wait, there’s more. After vape pens came into existence, even more powerful vaping devices were created, called mods, which were much larger and had more features like longer battery life, temperature control and so on. This provided users with a more personalized vaping experience, which made mods popular with some vaping enthusiasts.

    Vaping and Regulation

    The regulation of e-cigarettes differs from country to country. In many countries, e-cigarettes are a welcome alternative to smoking and completely legal to buy and use without restriction, whereas in others they are still misunderstood and not yet as readily available. After 2008, when e-cigarettes started to make their way into the mainstream, the FDA originally banned their importation into the USA but soon after repealed the ban. Nowadays, the FDA has categorized e-cigarettes as a tobacco product effectively making them illegal to minors, and has incorporated other forms of regulation when it comes to sale and production. In Europe, there are also regulations when it comes to e-cigarette production, passed by the European Parliament in 2014. While vaping is mostly legal throughout Europe, some countries also made it illegal for minors and limited the use of e-cigarettes in places where regular cigarettes are also prohibited.

    There are some countries, however, where vaping is even more regulated, especially if the e-cigarette contains nicotine. At the time of writing this, in countries like Singapore, Hong Kong and even Australia, vaping and the use of e-cigarettes is still highly regulated, even though the European Union, the UK, the USA, Scotland, and many other countries have long become much more open to and even advocate for vaping.

    Why is this so? Let’s take a look.

    When it comes to vaping, the laws and regulations in places like Australia are complex, to say the least, and current regulations vary from state-to-state, with no single agreed-upon set of regulations across the entirety of Australia.  Currently, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) does provide some guidance for the sale of e cigarettes and e liquid for shops on the ground in Australia, limiting the sale of nicotine as a therapeutic good in Australia. The use and supply of nicotine and vaping equipment is regulated separately in every country. Any person who is interested in purchasing vaping liquid or equipment is responsible for complying with the relevant laws and regulations in their jurisdiction.  

    TIt’s important consumers review local, state and federal laws and regulations in Australia and elsewhere when purchasing a vaping device. Vaping regulations in Australia and elsewhere are always evolving so do keep up to date with the latest legislation changes.  

    Personal Safety

    There are a couple of reasons why e-cigarettes are banned in Australia; the most commonly used argument against selling and using vaping devices in Australia is that we still don’t know the long-term effects of vaping. Most public health experts there agree with this statement, even the Minister for Health and Sport, Greg Hunt, has said that he’ll never lift the ban on e-cigarettes due to this reason.

    While not much is known about the long-term effects of vaping, some studies show that e-cigarettes are significantly less harmful than regular cigarettes, considering both the short-term and long-term effects of vaping.

    According to a research paper published in the European Addiction Research in 2014, e-cigarettes are up to 95% less harmful than cigarettes. The results were also supported by Public Health England and Royal College of Physicians through their own separate studies.  

    When it comes to the short-term effects, a research paper published by the non-profit organization Cochrane Library includes analysis of over 40 different studies and over 1700 records on vaping. The researchers concluded that vaping has no serious short-term dangers whatsoever.

    What about the long-term effects? Well, in 2017, a study investigating the effects of vaping over 3.5 years was published by Riccardo Polosa et al. Researchers found no significant changes in the participants’ health after this period of time, even in heavy vapers.

    Does this mean that vaping is completely safe and the Australian government doesn’t know what it’s doing? Of course not, since studying the short-term and long-term effects of vaping is relatively a new thing. However, scientific studies and research thus far show that vaping could be a safer option than smoking, especially since there’s no inhalation of burnt tobacco which is one of the leading causes of preventable deaths in the world.

    Another big reason why the Australian government continues the ban on e-cigarettes is that making vaping legal would allegedly “re-normalize” smoking. However, e-cigarettes are mostly used as a smoking cessation aid, so vaping actually helps people to stop smoking cigarettes rather than making them smoke. Therefore, if you’re a smoker, vaping is an alternative that could be safer than smoking according to many studies. Vaping and e-cigarettes are not registered as therapeutic goods in Australia, so cannot be marketed as a smoking cessation. Vape devices are being recommended by public health bodies in Europe and elsewhere.      

    Public Perception

    The majority of vapers or e-cigarette users are either current or former smokers who use these vaping devices to either reduce the consumption of cigarettes or stop smoking altogether. It is not yet scientifically proven whether or not e-cigarettes are viable smoking cessation aids, however, the anecdotal evidence is overwhelming. Millions of people use vaping as a  replacement for smoking, so the public perception when it comes to e-cigarettes and other vaping devices is that vaping is a significantly less harmful alternative to smoking.

    Even though some studies suggest there are significantly fewer toxins in e-cigarettes as well as no combustion and inhalation or burnt tobacco, further long-term studies are required to back up current evidence.  

    Vape in Australia and elsewhere is commonly compared to smoking, but the two are very different. No tobacco exists in vaping devices and therefore the laws governing the products are not similar.  

    The comparison between cigarettes, which have been proven to be extremely dangerous for one’s health, and vaping devices is seen by many people as unfair, as many countries promote the use of vape products, to reduce dependency on smoking cigarettes.

    Dr Colin Mendelsohn, a tobacco treatment practitioner and Associate Professor from the University of NSW’s School of Public Health and Medicine, claims that vaping is much safer than smoking and can significantly aid in smoking cessation. He’s been helping people to stop smoking for over thirty years and has seen how electronic cigarettes can help smokers quit their addiction. He challenges the negative perception e-cigarettes have, by educating the public as well as actively helping hundreds of smokers by introducing vaping as an alternative. Dr. Mendelsohn urges the Australian government to see the positive impact e-cigarettes have as smoking cessation aids and to listen to organizations such as ‘Cancer Research UK’ which recommends vaping as a less harmful alternative.

    Another public opinion, which is also induced by the government, is that vaping could cause young people to start smoking. This fear of vaping being the gateway to smoking is mostly due to vaping becoming a “trend” and the different flavours being popular and interesting to the younger population. However, as mentioned earlier, countless studies show that the negative consequences of both activities are incomparable, and there are no known studies which prove that vaping is the gateway to smoking. Also,  in many countries studies suggest millions of smokers have been helped to quit the habit using vaping devices vaping. In order for the public perception to shift, more people like Dr Mendelsohn are likely to speak openly about the benefits vaping and e-cigarettes have, especially when it comes to quitting smoking.

    Vape Australia - why the confusion?

    It’s 2018 and despite the countless studies which show that vaping could be a safer option than smoking, e-cigarettes in Australia face an uncertain future. But why does the unpopular opinion persist?  

    The first reason is that many public health experts, as well as the Australian Cancer Council, National Health, and Medical Research Council, argue that there is not enough evidence which confirms that there are no potential long-term risks when it comes to vaping. However, there is existing evidence in the form of studies and research papers, which do suggest that vaping is less harmful than smoking cigarettes. These are regularly cited by public health bodies in other countries.

    Another reason is the fear that people who never smoked, especially those from the younger population, will start smoking after becoming dependent on nicotine by using vaping devices. This fear stems from Australia as a country experiencing a significant drop in their smoking rates in recent years and having low smoking rates in general. Many public health experts, as well as many MPs, argue that there is no need to introduce another form of inducing nicotine since the smoking rates are lower each year anyway. But does this ignore the potential benefits for existing smokers who may use vaping as an alternative? Many MPs in Australia prefer the status quo - Australia’s Health Minister himself has said that he won’t lift the ban in his lifetime. Nevertheless, there are many experts as well as MPs that have opposing views. They believe that if the ban continues, many Australians will not have the chance to use vaping as a smoking cessation aid in order to successfully quit smoking cigarettes. They urge the Australian government to take a look at the evidence and create appropriate regulations which promote the use of e-liquids which contain nicotine.  

    Many countries like England, Scotland, the USA, New Zealand, even the European Union not only allow for e-cigarettes with nicotine to be used and sold, but also endorse their usage when it comes to smokers. They’ve realized the effectiveness vaping has when trying to quit smoking, which is why they support people who want to make the switch.

    When will Australia follow? Only time will tell, but if more people speak out and more long-term studies confirm the absence of potential risks, it’s likely to happen soon.

    Why People are Giving Up Smoking and Picking Up Vaping

    Vaping With Vaper Empire Vape Pen This is what it looks like to vape with a Vaper Empire vape pen. Adult smokers across Australia have switched to vaping with Vaper Empire brand e-cigarettes and e-liquids, is it time you made the switch?

    In the past couple of decades, many people became aware of the dangerous consequences smoking has. Heart disease, cancer, and emphysema are some of the health risks that can be experienced when inhaling burnt tobacco and other toxins cigarettes have. Because of the technology and the internet that we have today, information is easily accessible, so after becoming aware of the negative and harmful, even fatal effects of smoking, more and more people are looking for ways to stop this habit.

    While some people quit cold turkey, for others this is an impossible task. Smoking cigarettes is, after all, an addiction. This is why other alternatives have been developed, including vape. But why is vape so popular now? ,  

    Not only can you still inhale nicotine (or not if you choose nicotine-free e-liquids), so this tends to help with the addiction aspect. Also, the habit of holding something in your hand and inhaling the vape from e-liquids which can contain nicotine will remain the same. The only difference is that you won’t be inhaling burnt tobacco alongside other toxins that can harm your lungs and your overall health.  

    The Big Issue With Smoking

    Smoking has many dangers and negative side-effects, so let’s go over some of them.

    Stained teeth, bad breath, and smelling like cigarettes

    Smoking a few cigarettes early in the day can have an impact throughout the whole day. Your clothes will smell like cigarettes, which may have a negative effect on those around you, especially if you're having a meeting or working closely with someone. It’s the same with your breath.

    After smoking a cigarette, the smell stays with you for a while and the chemicals remain in your mouth which has a bad effect on your breath.

    Smoking also causes yellow discolouration on your teeth. The tar in tobacco is mainly responsible for staining your teeth, which is absorbed by the pores, so you’ll have to visit your dentist more often.

    Loss of sense of smell and taste

    The chemicals in the tobacco decrease the ability of your taste buds to recognize tastes that are salty, bitter, sour, and sweet. The heat that comes with the smoke can also damage and burn your taste buds which will additionally diminish your ability to use your sense of taste.

    Smoking also impairs your sense of smell. The longer you smoke, the more you’ll damage your olfactory nerves which are to be found on the rear part of your nose. After a couple of days of not smoking, your nerves start to repair and you’ll slowly begin to recover your senses, but the more you smoke, the more you’ll lose the sense of smell and taste.

    Cancer

    Smoking is the leading preventable cause of cancer by a big margin. One-third of the cancer cases worldwide are linked to the smoke of tobacco, which is harmful to both smokers and non-smokers who inhale second-hand smoke. There are 69 types of cancer that the chemicals from the tobacco smoke can be responsible for, out of which lung cancer is the riskiest. 70% of lung cancer cases are from smoking, and that specific type of cancer has one of the lowest chances of survival out of all cancer types.

    But there is some good news. Most of the diseases are preventable if you stop smoking and the chances of getting cancer fall significantly if you quit your smoking habit completely.

    Premature aging and wrinkles

    You may have heard the phrase “smoker’s face”. Research has found that smoking causes premature wrinkles and early aging. There are chemicals in the tobacco smoke which damage the tissues and prevent the standard chemical processes of the healthy tissues.

    Smoking is responsible for lower circulation of the skin and degradation of collagen. It reduces the thickness of the skin, which decreases skin elasticity. There are many studies on the effects of smoking on your skin and body, and some say that the average smoker looks at least 1-2 years older than it should be.

    Weakens your heart and lungs

    Smoking has many effects on your lungs. Not only it causes lung cancer, but it also causes breathing problems and weakens the functions of your lungs. It causes diseases that may be fatal, like emphysema and pneumonia.

    Smokers are more susceptible to heart attacks as well. The more you smoke, the bigger the chances of having heart disease. Smoking is directly responsible for around 20% of all heart diseases. Smoking, in fact, gets you higher blood pressure and a condition where plaque builds inside your coronary arteries.

    Not only is smoking bad for you, but it’s also bad for those around you since second-hand smoke also causes lung and heart diseases.

    Impact on physical activity

    If you like playing sports, want to have longer exercises, or achieve peak performance, cigarettes are your biggest enemies. In order to be healthy and for your body to function properly, your organs such as heart and lungs, as well as your muscles need blood that is rich with oxygen. The smoke from tobacco does exactly the opposite. It reduces the oxygen which has a negative impact on your overall physical performance and endurance.

    While smoking, there are more odds for you to experience shortness of breath, less flexibility and muscular strength, and to get injured. There are four times more chances for smokers to say that they feel tired or unrested after a night’s sleep than nonsmokers, and experience disturbed sleep patterns, so take this into consideration.

    Increased levels of stress

    There are many physical health risks that come with smoking cigarettes, and with that said it’s important to know that there are mental health risks associated with tobacco as well. Many smokers may say that smoking cigarettes relaxes them and relieves stress. But what researchers actually revealed is that smoking is responsible for higher anxiety levels and increased tension. Although smoking relaxes you and temporarily reduces stress, it actually just decreases the symptoms of anxiety, and it doesn’t really help you with reducing the level of anxiety. Instead, you become addicted to nicotine and try to self-medicate yourself when you feel stressed or anxious.

    If you smoke, the chances to be depressed are two times higher, since nicotine prompts the release of dopamine, a chemical in the brain directly associated with happiness or positive feelings. Because of that, the natural release of dopamine is decreased for smokers. They then depend on their cigarettes to release more dopamine, which is why nicotine is so addictive and creates a feeling of relieving stress.

    One way to stop those mental effects that nicotine has is to quit smoking. If you don’t feel like quitting, then you can try vaping with e-juices without nicotine or slowly try to lower the level of nicotine of your e-liquid.

    Impotence and lower libido

    Smoking can result in poor blood flow in your body because tobacco smoke damages the blood vessels. Since it has a negative impact on the circulation of your blood, it also has a negative impact on the flow of blood to the male sexual organ. This can cause erectile dysfunction or impotence. Research shows that impotence is more likely to happen if you smoke than if you don’t, and if you are a young man, smoking can have an even larger impact for a potential erectile dysfunction.

    Men's performance in bed can only be lowered when smoking heavily. If your performance is lowered, then it’s logical that your libido will also suffer. Smoking can also damage the smooth muscle inside the organ that is responsible for erectile function. If you stop smoking, after a couple of weeks your performance will be back to normal (as it should have been) and the frequency of intimate relations, as well as satisfaction, may only grow.

    Fertility and pregnancy risks

    Smoking can have serious negative effects on becoming pregnant. It can also be the cause of not having a healthy baby. For women who smoke, the chances of getting pregnant are lower, and getting pregnant takes more time. This is the case not only with active, or heavy smokers, but also with those who inhale second-hand smoke.

    Risks in pregnancy and birth defects also grow larger if you’re a smoker. If you smoke while you are pregnant the chances of miscarriage also increase. Smoking also impairs and negatively affects the reproductive process, but if you quit smoking before pregnancy, the chances of birth defects are almost the same as with non-smokers and quitting will normalize your fertility in only one year.

    Cost

    The cost of smoking may be the most obvious issue. The price of a pack of cigarettes grows larger every day. Buying cigarettes from day to day may not look too costly, but if you calculate the amount you are spending every year, you might be surprised. For those that smoke a pack a day, and their pack of cigarettes is 20 dollars, they spend more than 7000 Australia dollars every year. And that is only the monetary costs. As we said before, smoking also costs us our physical health, mental health, looks, etc.

    Making the Commitment

    While most smokers are aware that smoking cigarettes is a dangerous activity since it has so many negative consequences, it’s still hard to make the commitment to stop. As we already said, smoking is an addiction which is why it’s very difficult to quit. Therefore, if you are a smoker, it’s important to be fully aware that you have a nicotine addiction and start from there.

    Vaping, as you’re probably aware at this point, is suggested as a good alternative to smoking. You’ll still be holding a cigarette “look-a-like” in your hand and receive your nicotine dosage at the same time. However, before committing to vaping, it’s crucial that you make the commitment to quit cigarettes altogether.

    Why is this very important? When smoking a cigarette, you’re receiving a certain amount of nicotine. Some people are used to receiving a larger amount, which is why they smoke up to a couple of packs every day, while others are used to a lesser amount which is why they have one or a couple of cigarettes daily. After finishing a cigarette, smokers feel as if they have received the amount of nicotine they needed for that particular moment, which is why most of the time they won’t light another one immediately after.

    Vaping doesn’t have this, let’s call it a “regular dosage” of nicotine. Instead, you fill up the tank with the e-liquid of your choosing and can vape as much as you want, anytime you want. If filled with an e-liquid that can have nicotine, one tank can have enough nicotine for one day. The e-liquid can last from days, up to weeks, depending on the dosage and how frequently a person vapes. The problem for most is the uncertainty of whether or not they’ve received the amount of nicotine their body is used to. Now we come to the part of why making the commitment to quit smoking altogether is of extreme importance when starting to vape.

    If you vape and smoke at the same time, and don’t regulate your nicotine intake, you could get a nicotine overdose. When putting too much nicotine in your system, you might experience nausea, you might vomit, your head might start hurting, and you may often experience such other unpleasant side-effects. After feeling bad for a certain amount of time while both smoking and vaping, you might quit vaping, stick to cigarettes, and go back to the bad habit you wanted to quit in the first place. So take it easy to start with.

    Another thing is that most people start vaping in order to quit the nicotine addiction entirely. A smart way to do that would be to start with e-liquids that have a higher amount of nicotine and gradually over time switch to e-liquids that have a lesser amount of nicotine. By doing this, you won’t shock your system which is used to receive a certain amount of nicotine every day, but will slowly decrease the need for nicotine. This way, you’ll get used to a smaller amount of nicotine, and eventually start using e-liquids that don’t contain any nicotine whatsoever. Once the nicotine cravings are gone, you’ll finally be free from the dependency and either continue vaping nicotine-free e-liquids, or if you don’t feel the need for nicotine any longer you could stop vaping completely.

    So, nicotine overdose and the desire to quit your nicotine dependency are the two most important reasons why you shouldn’t smoke and vape at the same time. Therefore, before even thinking about the idea to start vaping, first, think about making the commitment to stop smoking.

    Why You’ll Save Money Vaping

    Australian Currency Australian smokers who switch to vaping with Vaper Empire vaping products could stand to save hundreds of dollars a month and thousands of dollars a year.

    Every year cigarettes are becoming more and more expensive. This is happening throughout the world, but Australia and New Zealand are leading with the highest price per pack of cigarettes, and that’s not where the Australian government stops. They made a commitment to raise the price up to 40 dollars until 2020, which will double the price that we have in 2018.

    If you are new to vaping, in the beginning, you may spend more than you expected. Buying a vape, extra parts, different liquids, and so on, may cost you more than a few packs of cigarettes. What you also need to know is that in the long run, vaping can save you a significant amount of money. It all depends on how much cigarettes you smoke daily or how much you spend on one pack.

    To get more precise information about the savings you may get, you can use the calculator on our website. If you scroll and get to the middle of our homepage, you will find the tool that will give you the amount of dollars you will be saving if switching from smoking to vaping. The section is called “how much will you save” and you'll need to input the number of cigarettes you smoke per day, the cost you have per pack, and how much cigarettes there are in one pack.

    What you’ll get in return is the amount you spend on cigarettes per month, how much will the e-liquid cost you, your monthly savings, and also yearly savings. If you smoke two packs per day and your pack of cigarettes costs you 20 dollars, then you'll be saving 1200 dollars per month, or almost 13000 dollars every single year. That sounds unbelievable but based on you using a Vaper Empire 'Classic Collection' E-Liquid, that amount is not only possible but entirely plausible.

    So, with that said, not only you will protect your health by quitting smoking, but you will save a good amount of money if you quit.  Nowadays smoking is not only terrible for your health, but also for your pocket, so making the switch will only do you good in the long run.

    Will vaping save you money? Most definitely, yes it will.

    Choosing the Right Vape for You

    Whether you’re new to the world of vaping or you just want to familiarize yourself better with different vaping devices, with so many different products sometimes it’s hard to choose the right one. For that reason, here are the three most common vaping devices so that you make the right choice when choosing your first (or next) one.

    Cigalikes

    When vaping started to gain popularity, almost all vaping devices on the market looked like real cigarettes, which is why they were called cigalikes. These small-sized electronic cigarettes are light, can easily fit in any pocket, and are perfect for both new and casual vapers. Out of all vaping devices on the market today, cigalikes are the ones that most resemble traditional cigarettes which explains their appeal to those trying to quit smoking.

    There are two types of cigalikes: refillable and disposable. The former ones require refilling a cartomizer with the e-liquid of your choosing and charging the battery, while the latter ones serve you no more once the e-liquid is gone and the battery is run out.

    While cigalikes look like the perfect replacement for traditional cigarettes, there are some drawbacks. Out of all vaping devices on the market, cigalikes are the ones whose batteries’ lives are shortest and whose cartomizers are the smallest. This means that cigalikes require that you charge the battery more often than you would with other devices and refill the cartomizer more frequently with e-liquids as well.

    All in all, if you’re new to vaping and want to try it out at a smaller price, cigalikes may be the right e-cigarettes for you.

    Vape Pens

    Nowadays, vape pens are the most popular type of e-cigarettes and no wonder! They have larger cartomizers or tanks, meaning that they store a larger amount of e-liquids, and have a longer battery life also. Vape pens can be as small as cigalikes, or longer and more stylish, so you have more varieties to choose from. Remember, the bigger the battery, the longer it lasts, so have this in mind before purchasing.

    Most vape pens have adjustable voltage functions, so you can dial your desired vaping voltage and customize your vaping experience. Vape pens can be used both by newbies and experienced vapers, so if you want something more powerful than cigalikes, then vape pens are the right e-cigarettes for you.

    Mods

    Now we come to the newest vaping devices on the market called mods. Mods are e-cigarettes, just like cigalikes and vape pens, but modified even further to include more features, hence the name.

    Being the most advanced e-cigarettes on the market today, mods are most popular among the more experienced vapers who are looking for something more. But what’s so special about mods?

    Mods are bigger than the other types of vaping devices, meaning they have a much longer battery life and a bigger tank for storing the e-liquid. They can be found in different shapes and sizes, and due to being technologically most advanced, mods offer more customization options than vape pens and oftentimes have an electronic display so you can more easily adjust the settings.

    So, if cigalikes and vape pens are not enough for you, or you simply want to move on to a stronger and better vaping device, mods may be just the thing you need.

    Find the Perfect Vape Liquid

    The quality of the e-liquids is as important as the quality of the e-cigarettes if you want to have the best vaping experience, so let’s mention the two most important things you should consider when it comes to e-liquids.

    Flavour

    Flavour is the first thing you should think of when purchasing your first e-liquid. Do you want it to resemble the tobacco found in traditional cigarettes or you want something new and exciting like fruity blends? Maybe menthol is the flavour you prefer or something resembling coffee?

    At Vaper Empire, we offer classic flavours like tobacco, blueberry, menthol, coffee, cola, vanilla, and many more, as well as artisan selection with formulated flavours from expert mixologists for even the most sophisticated palates.

    Check these flavours out and choose your favourite ones. Feel free to experiment and choose those you think will appeal your taste buds the best.

    Nicotine Concentration

    After choosing the flavour, the next step is to choose the nicotine concentration of your preference. This depends on whether you vape to quit smoking or you simply vape for the pleasure of vaping. Therefore, if you’re a heavy smoker who wants to start vaping in order to quit this habit, you might want to start with e-liquids that have a higher concentration of nicotine and over time choose the ones with lower concentration. On the other hand, if you are a non-smoker that vapes for the pleasure of vaping, you don’t need any nicotine so you’d want to choose those e-liquids that don’t have any nicotine whatsoever.

    At Vaper Empire, we offer the following nicotine strengths: 0mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg, and 24mg, so think about what you need before choosing. You can view our complete line of e-juices here.

    Things to Consider When Vaping for your First Time

    Learning the lingo

    In the beginning, you may be confused by the lingo vapers use. There are a couple of words and meanings you might want to know, so here are the most widely used ones when it comes to the topic of vaping and e-cigarettes.

    Atomizer: Part of the vape that creates vapour from the liquid. It contains the coil and the wick.

    Cartridge: Place where you put the e-Liquid or e-Juice.

    Coil: Element inside the atomizer that heats the liquid and converts it into vapour.

    Dripping: Type of vaping. Instead of adding a couple of mL liquid into the cartridge, you add only a few drops directly inside the atomizer.

    e-Juice (or e-Liquid): Fluid-like substance that you add to the atomizer. Can have different flavours and can be with or without nicotine.

    Millilitres (mL): Amount of e-Juice the cartridge/tank contains.

    Mod: Abbreviation of modify/modification. It usually means a vaping device that is not like a regular cigarette (or pen).

    Tank: Similar to a cartridge, but usually keeps more liquid inside.

    Wick: Element inside the atomizer that soaks the liquid. Can be made from different materials, like cotton or silica cord.

    Maintenance

    It’s recommended that every new user starts with reading the manual of the vaping device it bought because every vape mod is in some way different from others. There will be instructions inside the box, and the manual can contain some tips for using the vape mod. With them in mind, you should minimize the chance of potentially making a mistake.

    Learning how to clean it and doing that regularly should keep your vape mod in great shape. That way you will prolong its life and keep the quality as it was when you used it for the first time.

    Following directions is extremely important, especially when it comes to things like setting the temperature or carrying extra batteries. Your batteries should be in good condition and kept in a case while caring them in pocket or purse, while following directions for the temperature should make your hits smoother and bigger.

    FAQ

    Is Vaping Dangerous?

    As vaping becomes more and more popular, people are questioning the health effects of this new alternative to smoking cigarettes. This is the most asked question for those interested in vaping, and for a good reason. There are all kinds of stories and articles that e-cigarette liquid contains toxic materials, that the battery can explode, or some other danger related to vaping.

    If we do a comparison with smoking a regular cigarette, everyone will understand the difference between these two things. There are more than 7000 chemicals in cigarette smoke, out of which 69 cause cancer, while vaping produces only vapour, which doesn't contain smoke. We also know that, in many cases, smoking is responsible for lung cancer.

    Actually, around 80% of people with lung cancer are smokers. The combustion process of tobacco while smoking cigarettes is mainly responsible for the harmful effects on your lungs. While the tobacco burns, we inhale the smoke that contains hundreds of different chemicals E-cigarettes do not burn tobacco at all. There is a study published in the journal European Addiction Research that says vaping can be mostly 1/20 (no more than 5%) harmful as smoking tobacco. The study's authors are even encouraging smokers to switch to vaping due to this reason.

    There are some chemicals that may sound strange in the liquid of the e-cigarettes, but they are in much smaller quantities than in the chemically processed tobacco from cigarettes. The level of those chemicals is so minimal that in most cases it is only trace amounts.  To avoid the potential dangers of those chemicals while vaping, make sure that you choose high-quality e-cigarettes and e-liquid. Vaping is a relatively new technology and many research papers suggest it could be safer than smoking. Since many people who vape are former or current cigarette smokers, switching to e-cigarettes could help reduce health risks (according to the papers cited in this article).

    What is "Popcorn Lung"?

    Popcorn lung is a serious lung condition that can do irreversible harm. This condition causes lung damage that can only be stopped with a lung transplant. But how is popcorn lung (or bronchiolitis obliterans) caused and should you be worried if you vape?

    Prolonged exposure to diacetyl causes popcorn lung. Diacetyl is an artificial flavouring that is used in many products to give them a buttery taste. There is one example that you may have heard of that caused lung damage to several workers in a factory for microwaved popcorns. They got this condition from long exposure to diacetyl in the 1990s while working with this chemical. The effects of this condition are degradation in lung function, shortness of breath, and wheezing.

    But people that vape are really in no danger from this dangerous lung condition. Our e-liquids do not contain diacetyl. Cigarettes, however, contain diacetyl and other cancer-causing ingredients.  

    Vape users should check the e-liquid ingredients they use and ensure quality.

    What's All this Chat about Exploding Batteries?

    There are many videos on the internet where you can see an exploding battery, and in some of those cases, it’s a battery from an e-cigarette. Because the thought of a battery exploding in your pocket (or in your mouth) is scary, those videos are even more popularized in the media as well as on social media. But what you don’t get to see in many cases is why the batteries are exploding, and how you can prevent that from happening to you.

    The first thing we need to know is that batteries from e-cigarettes are not exploding any more often than any other similar batteries that power other devices. Most of the issues that can happen to a battery are in fact caused by the people who use them, and it’s very rare that a battery explodes only because it had some defects.

    Also, many cheap brands may not give the proper instructions to the users or won’t supply you with warnings. For example, you can make the mistakes of carrying extra batteries in your pocket which will induce a short circuit that will rapidly overheat the battery. What is important to know is that almost all cases of an exploding battery can be prevented since they were created by improper handling of the battery (or e-cigarettes) in the first place.

    The plastic wrapper on the battery can help you avoid a battery short-circuit. If it’s damaged, consider changing the battery or carefully wrapping it yourself. It’s important not to carry the battery in a pocket or a purse alongside coins or some other conductive material. This is most often the reason, and while you may see news articles with the title “e-cigarette explodes in a pocket”, rarely that’s the case. Instead, the two poles of the extra battery are accidentally connected by some metal material which will make it overheat and explode. Best way to make sure this doesn't happen is to put the battery in some plastic or silicone case while you carry it around with you. Our batteries are made in the top manufacturers who use the best component parts to produce every product.

    Why do Some People Call it "Modding"?

    The word modding is slang for the word modifying, and it’s used in different areas to indicate modifying hardware, software, or some other thing that is changed from its original state. In the case of vaping, modding is used to describe the process of getting a vape to your liking by tailoring the different components it contains.

    Modding can be artistic or technical and is one of the things that made vaping popular. It was born on the vaping forums, while vape users shared their ideas for improving the cartridges or changing parts of the atomizers. Trying to make it better and improve some functions of the vape, the name modding was associated with vaping. Nowadays, most vaporizers are created and sold with interchangeable parts, so the technical modding by the users is not needed as much as before, but the name modding is still used by the vaping community today.

    What is a "Mod Vape"?

    Mod vape is a type of vaporizer that has extra functionalities and is more customizable than a regular vape pen. It is specially designed so that many parts are interchangeable and users are more flexible to test different batteries, tanks, etc.

    This types of vapes are popular, as they produce more vapour and have larger and more powerful power sources. These additional improvements are responsible for the greater flavour of the juice that the mod vapes use. Users feel more throat hit as there is more vapour and enhanced flavour as well.

    More experienced vapers prefer using mod vapes. There are different types of mod vapes, but almost all contain the same parts. One of the components is the battery mod which powers the vape, and a mod vape can even contain up to three batteries. The temperature, voltage, and wattage can be controlled in some of the more advanced mod vapes, so you’ll have a more personalized vaping experience. Another main component of the mod vape is the tank which holds the juice. There are different sizes of the tank, but most often you will find them to hold from a few mL up to 10 mL of e-liquid.

    Wicks are to be found inside the tank and they hold (absorb) the juice. In many cases, they are made from cotton and are being used so that you’ll get a better taste when the juice is heated. The coil is an element in the tank of the mod vape that is responsible for heating the juice, which can be replaceable, as most of the elements in the mod vapes are. The last part of the vape is the mouthpiece, also called the drip tip. This part of the mod vape is the element you smoke from and can be made from different kinds of material, like glass, plastic, or steel.

    How Do I Set the Temperature Controls?

    Many hobbyist vape users use mod vapes which have temperature control. Our range does not include these products as they can be very complicated.  When you try to learn about these features for the first time, it may seem complicated. In fact, there are only a couple of things you need to know before you get yourself into that field of modding and controlling the temperature of your vaporizer.

    One of the things you must learn is the watts on your mod vape. In order to control the temperature, you need to set the wattage on your vape device. If the watts are higher, then there will be more vapour, since the coil inside the atomizer will get hotter. The most commonly used setting is around 4-6 watts or even 7-9 watts for some users. If it's too hot, then the vapour that you inhale can burn you a little, so be careful.

    But how do you control the wattage of your vaping device? This is the tricky part. To set the wattage on the mod vape you need to know about voltage and ohms because they are elements/units responsible for controlling the wattage. This part may require some simple math.

    Ohms indicate the resistance of the coil, while the voltage is the pressure from the power source. To control the power which is measured in watts, you need to adjust both the volts and the resistance (ohms).

    For example, you can set both the resistance and the volts to 4 to get 4 watts of power. If you change the resistance from 4 to 2, and the volts stay on 4, you’ll get 8 watts of power. There are vaping power charts on the internet so you’ll get the right power without calculating the outcome yourself. Too hot can be risky since it can burn out the coil or fry some juices, while too cool can produce little to no vapour.

    What are Clearomizers, and Cartos, and Tanks?

    Every e-cigarette has an element that stores the liquid, which is then heated by the coil so that it can be converted into a vapour. The element that contains the coil, the tank (cartridge) and the wick can be a clearomizer or cartomizer.

    Clearomizers

    Clearomizers are the most popular option, and they are also the newest invention from those three. The difference between cartomizers and clearomizers is minimal, and in some cases, they only differ in the transparency of the tank. Clearomizers allow you to see the liquid inside the tank and they don’t contain polyfill materials.

    They have a large capacity for e-juice, long life-cycle, and some come with a replaceable coil. There are plastic and glass options, whereas the latter is considered to be much better for serious users and much easier to clean.

    Cartos or cartomisers

    Cartos are made from a metallic or plastic cylinder and polyfill material wrapped around the coil. They are very hard to clean, but the good thing is that they are cheap to replace. Cartos are everywhere and a lot of vape users use them, but they are not as popular as they were before. There are different types of cartos, some made for one-time use, or more often they can be reused and refilled with juice.

    Tanks

    Tanks are used so that mod vape users can store some extra liquid in their clearomizers or cartomizers. There are many types of tanks that come in different sizes, materials, and shapes. Usually, they can contain up to 10 mL of e-juice inside, which can give you a couple of hours of vaping.

  • What Is The Best Vape Starter Kit?

    If you’re new to vaping, you have a lot to think about! First, you’ll need to decide what kind of vaporizer you want. Everyone vapes their own way, and there are vaporizers made to accommodate every kind of vaper. That's why Vaper Empire offers a wide selection of vape kits to choose from, making it possible for virtually any vaper to find their perfect vape.

    Does the kind of vaporizer I buy really matter?

    Yes, it absolutely matters. The kind of vape you buy can make or break your vaping experience. If you prefer a throat hit similar to that of a cigarette, there are vaporizers made just for that. If you’d rather have something more powerful with better cloud production, there are vaporizers out there that are better suited for that style of vaping. It all depends on your personal preference.

    Additionally, unless you’re buying an AIO (all-in-one) device, you’ll need a tank to go with your battery. If you’re thinking about getting a vaporizer for the very first time and you don’t have any of the things that you need, it’s probably best for you to go the route of the starter kit - of which we have many options to choose from here at Vaper Empire.

    Why buy a starter kit?

    A good starter kit should include everything you need to start vaping, including the unit itself, accessories, and sometimes even e-liquid. It’s a lot more convenient than buying everything separately, and if you’re ordering online, it’ll save you a fortune.

    Starter kits will typically come with several items, and the overall price usually includes a pretty steep discount. Plus, you won’t have to pay for separate shipping on every item, which will end up saving you a lot.

    Here at Vaper Empire, we have the best premium e-liquids and e-cigs on the market, and we sell a variety of different types of starter kits. If you’re looking for the absolute best vape starter kits, we have a few options for you to look at. There are a lot of vape starter kits to choose from, but here at Vaper Empire, we only sell the best premium e-cigs and premium e-liquids on the market so you can rest assured that no matter what you choose, it's going to be quality.

    While opinions and preferences regarding vaporizers vary widely, many of the people within the Vaper Empire society prefer our Vibe Series Deluxe Starter Kit. It's one of our most popular vape kits to date, and the user feedback we've received for it has been nothing short of positive. Let’s take a look at the Vibe Series to see why it's a crowd favourite.

    The Vibe Series

    The Vibe Series is one of the most popular vaporizers here at Vaper Empire, likely due to its uniquely innovative, well-balanced design. Its relatively small form factor makes it very portable, but it manages to achieve levels of cloud production that you may not expect from a device of its size. The Vibe series is perfect for those seeking a classy-looking vape that’s powerful enough to chuck big clouds but lightweight enough to easily go with you everywhere.

    When designing the Vibe Series, Vaper Empire worked tirelessly to create a device that struck the perfect balance between portability, power, durability, convenience, and style. With an elegant design, a powerful battery, a durable shell, large e-liquid reservoir, and an ultra-sleek footprint, we believe that the Vibe perfectly hits its mark.

    We wanted it to offer portability comparable to that of a slim form factor vape pen, but we also wanted it to blow such vaporizers out of the water when it came down to performance. It was a tall order, but we ended up with this little beast of a device. According to our customers, it’s one of the best vaporizers that we've ever made.

    Needless to say, the aesthetic appeal of this device certainly contributes to its success. Here at Vaper Empire, we don’t give higher priority to the style or function of our vaporizers. When it comes to premium vaporizers, the style and functionality should be equally important. In short, we made sure that this vaporizer’s performance was held to the same high standard as its elegant design.

    That being said, let’s talk about who the Vibe Series is made for and why everyone is so crazy about it. With the Vibe, we focused on both portability and power. Portability and power typically have a somewhat inverse relationship. This just means that making a device more powerful typically means making it bigger, and making it smaller typically means making it less powerful. With a lot of fine-tuning, we found the perfect balance.

    A Closer Look At The Vibe Series

    With the Vibe Series, Vaper Empire set out to find the perfect balance between portability and power. There are a lot of small form factor vaporizers on the market, but very few of them are power-oriented, and even fewer can compete with the likes of the Vibe Series.

    Almost everyone is bound to love the Vibe Series. Power-oriented users will love it because it offers an experience that’s similar to what they’re used to while utilizing a much more portable form factor. Most devices that compare to the Vibe in terms of size simply can’t compare in terms of performance. The Vibe is only 85mm tall, 31mm long, and 22m wide.

    Once you account for the size of the tank, this vape setup is around 50mm taller than your standard, run of the mill cigalike vaporizer, but it manages to run circles around every vaporizer in that size range. The extra space is used incredibly well and it more than makes up for the extra bulk with sheer performance. It features a 2000 mAh battery that’ll last most vapers well over a day of use.

    Vibe Tank

    The Vibe’s 2000 mAh battery supplies 14 watts of power to the Vibe’s complimentary high-tech tank. The 4.5 ml dual-coil Vibe Tank was designed specifically to work in conjunction with the Vibe’s battery. Made to take full advantage of the Vibe’s 14 watts, the Vibe Tank boasts levels of vapour production that are off the charts for a vaporizer of its size.

    Like the Vibe Battey, the Vibe Tank was made with power and portability in mind. Made to take advantage of the Vibe Battery’s power without adding to the size to the overall unit too much, the Vibe Tank perfectly compliments the Vibe Battery. Furthermore, like the Vibe Battery, the Vibe Tank was designed with a premium style that really couldn’t look any better.

    Who Is The Vibe Series For?

    It’s important to remember that this vaporizer is closer in size to a low-powered cigalike device than a power-oriented vaping device. It’s the ultimate vaporizer in terms of convenience because it's small enough to carry comfortably, but it isn’t so small that the performance suffers and the vapour becomes underwhelming. Even with such a small footprint, it produces clouds of vapour that will satisfy most vapers.

    We wanted to make a highly-portable device that even the pickiest vapers would love. At the same time, we wanted to make a powerful vaporizer that could potentially appeal to highly-portable e-cig users. Each kind of vaporizer has its own advantages, and we wanted to make a device that brought the best of both worlds. The Vibe’s tank and battery both play into this portable yet powerful philosophy, and the two have proven to be a powerfully dynamic duo.

    The Vibe is one of the smallest vaporizers on the market with a deliberate emphasis on cloud production. Most devices similar in size to the Vibe don’t offer a battery with such a high capacity and they typically offer a small fraction of the power that the Vibe offers. It hits like a champ with fairly large, smooth clouds, and the design is so low-profile that you might just forget about it while it’s in your pocket.

    The Vibe Series is perfect for new vapers and experienced vapers alike, although the two will likely use it differently. For a new vaper, this is an ideal entry-level vaporizer, while an experienced vaper will likely value the Vibe more for its unique combination of an ultra-portable design and unusually powerful components. To satisfy the Vibe’s various users, we have two different starter kits. First, let’s talk about The Vibe Series Deluxe Starter Kit.

    The Vibe Series Deluxe Starter Kit

    The Vibe Series Deluxe Starter Kit is the Vibe Starter Kit offering the most value, so it’s honestly perfect for anyone that likes saving money. It's especially perfect for those that are new to vaping due to its inclusion of various e-liquids. The four bottles of 10ml e-liquid definitely make up for the price difference between the Deluxe Starter Kit and the Standard Starter Kit.

    The Deluxe Starter Kit even takes it a step further by throwing in a leather carrying pouch. This kit is great for beginning vapers, but it’s also perfect for anyone that appreciates a good deal.

    Considering how much you save with the value of the Deluxe Starter Kit, if you have the extra cash, we highly recommend going the route of the Deluxe Starter Kit. For educational purposes, let’s briefly go over the contents of The Vibe Series Deluxe Starter Kit.

    • 1 x Vibe rechargeable battery black (2000 mAh)
    • 1 x 4.5 ml vibe tank with advanced dual coil atomizer
    • 1 x spare advanced dual coil atomiser
    • 1 x USB power cable
    • 1 x Spare ‘O’ Ring pack
    • 2 x Alternative Drip-Tip Mouthpieces
    • 1 x Vaper Empire Australian USB wall adapter [2.0 Amp]
    • 1 x user manual (English language)
    • 3 x Bottle of 10ml Classic Collection e-liquid
    • 1 x Bottle of 10ml Artisan Collection e-liquid
    • 1 x Vaper Empire classic PU leather bound pouch

    The Vibe Series Starter Kit

    Now that you know what the Deluxe Kit offers, let’s take a look at the standard Vibe Series Starter Kit. If you already have e-liquid, don’t want more, and don’t really care about the Deluxe Kit’s included carrying case, you can save $30 by getting the standard Starter Kit instead of the Deluxe Starter Kit.

    However, if you plan to buy Vaper Empire e-liquid anyways, it makes more sense to get the Deluxe Kit. Doing so will actually end up saving you time and money in the long run. We provide both options just so there’s something for everyone, but the Deluxe Starter Kit offers more value for your dollar.

    The standard Starter Kit is basically the Deluxe Starter Kit without the four included bottles of e-liquid and without the leather carrying case. For good measure, here’s a list of everything that comes with the Vibe Series Starter Kit.

    • 1 x Vibe rechargeable battery black (2000 mAh)
    • 1 x 4.5 ml vibe tank with advanced dual coil atomiser
    • 1 x spare advanced dual coil atomizer
    • 1 x USB power cable
    • 1 x Spare ‘O’ Ring pack
    • 2 x Alternative Drip-Tip Mouthpieces
    • 1 x Vaper Empire Australian USB wall adapter
    • 1 x User manual

    Best Vape Starter Kit Runner Up

    We have another vape starter kit that we’d be amiss not to mention. It made waves in the VE community and those that use it swear by its quality. It’s made for a different style of vaping than the Vibe Series, so those that aren’t attracted to the Vibe will, more often than not, choose this one instead. This is one of our most popular vaporizers, but it doesn’t quite match the popularity of the Vibe. This is the runner up for the title of the best vape starter kit.

    The V-Pack II Series

    While the Vibe Series combines everything we love about ultra-portable vaporizers and power-oriented vaporizers, the V-Pack II takes the concept of the ultra-portable vaporizer and perfects it. Maybe you’re not into big clouds. Maybe you really do prefer a vaporizer that closely emulates the look and feel of a cigarette. If that’s the case, the V-Pack II Series may very well be the vape for you.

    There are a number of “cigalike” vaporizers on the market, but none of them go to the same lengths as the V-Pack II. This is an innovative product filled to the brim with useful features. Most importantly, it performs extremely well and provides great-tasting vapour. Vaporizers like this are typically preferred by those that are trying to quit smoking and those that have recently stopped smoking.

    The V-Pack II is designed to closely emulate the look and feel of a traditional cigarette, and it even comes with a portable charging case that’s shaped like a box of cigarettes. The only difference is that it looks a lot better than a box of cigarettes and it does something no cigarette box does: charges the V-Pack II Series vape batteries.

    The design of the portable charging case is undeniably classy, and due to the V-Pack’s relative low-power consumption, for many, it’ll keep an e-cig charged for days. Even the most frequent of vapers should at least get close to a full day of use with this smart little vaporizer.

    People just can’t seem to get enough of the V-Pack II. It’s a simple concept, but it’s been implemented so well here at Vaper Empire that it's actually our second most popular starter kit to date. Speaking of starter kits, let’s take a look at our various V-Pack II Series kits.

    V-Pack II Series Deluxe Starter Kit

    In this case, the V-Pack II Deluxe Starter Kit will again hold the most value for the price. The Deluxe Starter Kit costs $30 more than the standard Starter Kit, but it comes with three extra packs of V-Pack II cartomisers.

    Three packs of the same cartomizers purchased separately would cost an extra $45, so the Deluxe Kit pays for itself in the long run. Let’s take a brief look at the contents of the V-Pack II Deluxe Starter Kit.

    • 1 x V Pack II Portable Charging Case in Black (1200 mAh)
    • 2 x V-Pack II Battery Stem in Black (170mAh)
    • 1 x USB Power Cable
    • 1 x Vaper Empire Australian USB Wall Adapter
    • 1 x User Manual
    • 4 x V-Pack II - Cartomizer 5-Pack

    V-Pack II Series Starter Kit

    If you’re on a budget that doesn’t allow for the price of the V-Pack II Series Deluxe Starter Kit, the standard V-Pack II Starter Kit is still a great alternative. It includes everything that you’ll need to start vaping, including a pack of 5 cartomizers. Let’s quickly go over the contents of the V-Pack II Series Starter Kit.

    • 1 x V Pack II Portable Charging Case in Black (1200 mAh)
    • 2 x V-Pack II Battery Stem in Black (170mAh)
    • 1 x USB Power Cable
    • 1 x Vaper Empire Australian USB Wall Adapter
    • 1 x User Manual
    • 1 x V-Pack II - Cartomizer 5-Pack

    What Is The Best Vape Starter Kit?

    Of course, everyone is going to have their own, personal favourite vaporizer. Vaporizers are so common and they vary so much that any claim of a vaporizer being the “best” is probably purely subjective. We just pay attention to what our customers say, and it seems that most of them prefer to vape with the Vibe Series Deluxe Starter Kit.

    If you want to take a look at the Vibe Series Starter Kit, one of the V-Pack II Starter Kits, or any of our other premium e-cig starter kits, check out our vape store. We even offer a variety of e-liquids to go with your new e-cig, so don’t forget to browse our official line of premium vape juices. For all the best in vaping, be sure to check back in with Vaper Empire soon.

  • Our Top 10 Most Popular E-Juice Flavours

    If you have an e-cig, chances are you bought e-liquid when you bought your vape. After all, an e-cig is basically useless without vape juice. Whether you’re looking for e-liquid without nicotine or e-liquid with a whopping 24mg of nicotine, Vaper Empire has you covered. We sell the best premium e-liquids available. You can browse our wide selection of flavours by visiting the e-liquid section of our online store.

    Every flavour is absolutely delectable, and our long line of e-liquids has expertly crafted flavours for everyone. They’re always made from ingredients of the highest quality and pharmaceutical-grade nicotine in our sophisticated manufacturing facility. With quality control like that, you get consistent, high-quality e-liquid every time. Fruit-lovers, dessert-addicts, candy-cravers, and classic tobacco aficionados will all find a flavour they’re crazy about.

    All of our e-liquids have long lists of adoring fans, but there are a few that transcend the rest. They’re all great, but these select few just sell like crazy. They’ve found their way into the hearts of our beloved customers, and that gives these e-liquids an especially legendary status. These are our top ten most popular e-liquid flavours.

    10. Red Energy

    Red Energy from our Classic Collection is one of our biggest crowd-pleasers. It’s been meticulously crafted and fine-tuned to bare an uncanny resemblance to the flavour of everyone’s favourite energy drink. Our flavour mixers really outdid themselves with this one. It doesn’t contain any caffeine, but Red Energy’s delicious flavour will give you wings on the first hit.

    9. Watermelon

    Don’t reserve one of the best fruit flavours for summer. With our Watermelon e-juice from our Classic Collection, your favourite melon is no longer seasonal. Vape this e-liquid whenever you need a sweet, juicy pick-me-up, or vape it all year! The choice is yours. If you’re a watermelon fan, this e-liquid is a must-try.

    8. Old Port Royal

    Old Port Royal is an e-liquid from our Artisan Collection, and it’s one of our most popular e-liquids. Specifically, Old Port Royal is a hit among former-smokers due to its well-balanced tobacco flavour. If you’re trying to stop smoking but miss the authentic flavour of premium tobacco, you have to try Old Port Royal.

    Experience aged, sweet tobacco in a way that’s far more flavorful and satisfying than smoke could ever be. When you vape tobacco e-liquids, the flavour kind of resembles the smell of fresh tobacco. It’s like tasting a well-baked cookie after chewing on hard, charred cookies your entire life. You didn’t know that tobacco could taste like this, and it truly puts smoke to shame. If you’re a former smoker, you should give this vape juice a world.

    7. Vanilla

    If you use the word “vanilla” to describe something that’s plain or boring, you clearly haven’t tried our Vanilla e-liquid. From the Classic Collection, our Vanilla flavour is a beautifully intricate yet subtle experience. It carries all the flavour you’d expect from a scoop of ice cream or a milkshake, but it isn’t at all overwhelming. It’s just as gentle as a vanilla-flavoured e-liquid should be and still loaded with that classic flavour you’ve come to love. Experience sweet, smooth, flavourful vapour with our Vanilla e-liquid. The accuracy of this flavour will leave you speechless.

    6. Coffee

    Almost everyone knows how satisfying that first cup of coffee is right after rolling out of bed, especially those that aren’t “morning people.” Now you can get that delicious, classic coffee flavour in the form of vapour. Vape Coffee e-liquid from our Classic Collection with dessert, breakfast, or even a cup of real coffee. This e-liquid is decaf, but you can still get it in a variety of nicotine strengths. Experience the bold, robust flavour of coffee anywhere with our Coffee vape juice. If you prefer your coffee with sugar and cream, grab a bottle of vanilla vape juice too. Add the Vanilla e-liquid to your Coffee e-liquid sparingly until the flavour is to your liking.

    5. Blueberry

    The sheer availability of blueberries year-round is all the evidence we need in order to know that people love them. This is a seasonal berry, and when they stop growing locally, we just get them from a part of the world where they’re in season. Sure, a lot of fruits are imported when they’re out of season, but only crowd-favourite perishables get that kind of treatment.

    Further proof that people are crazy about blueberries: Blueberry e-liquid from our Classic Collection is our fifth highest selling e-liquid. It’s due in part to society's hysterical obsession with this berry, but it’s also due in large part to our talented flavour mixers. They painstakingly and meticulously tweaked the recipe until it became what it is today: the most accurate and flavorful blueberry vape juice around.

    4. Apple

    Apple e-liquid from the Classic Collection is one of our favourites! This isn’t your typical, overly-sweet apple e-liquid. Our apple e-liquid tastes just like an authentic apple. The sweet, fruity flavour is followed almost instantly by a hint of tartness, just like a freshly picked apple. It wasn’t easy, but after a lot of trial and error, we managed to bring a true apple flavour to this e-liquid. It’s our fourth most popular e-liquid, so it seems our worked paid off. We’re just glad that our customers enjoy it as much as we do.

    3. Menthol

    Vaper Empire’s take on classic Menthol is something that every menthol lover should try. It isn’t too sweet or too intense like menthol e-liquids often are. It’s a perfectly balanced mixture. The pleasantly strong and minty fresh vapour that you get from this vape juice is truly in a league of its own. There are a lot of menthol e-liquids on the market, but they lack properly balanced flavours. Furthermore, they just can’t compare to Vaper Empire’s Menthol flavour. If you’ve been looking for a premium Menthol e-liquid, this is the vape juice you need.

    2. Tobacco Ry4

    Tobacco RY4 is a complex e-liquid that’s become a crowd favourite for customers of Vaper Empire. It combines smooth tobacco, rich caramel, and just a little sweet vanilla. Tobacco doesn’t accompany all dessert-flavoured e-liquids well, but these flavours were specifically chosen and perfected to compliment the classic taste of tobacco. It tastes great, and all the flavours come through noticeably. The tobacco is front and centre, while the vanilla and caramel act more as accent flavours. It still manages to be quite sweet, but it’s not overwhelming. Overall, this is a delicious, premium e-liquid that we’d recommend to any tobacco aficionado.

    1. Tobacco

    Our Tobacco e-liquid from our Classic Collection was meticulously crafted by our expert mixers. This isn’t your typical, weak, unauthentic tobacco-flavoured e-liquid. In fact, it was specifically made to exemplify rich, dark tobacco. It’s extremely flavourful, and its resemblance to real tobacco is uncanny. You don’t taste smoke like you would with a cigarette. Rather, the flavour of this premium tobacco e-liquid is comparable to the smell of fresh tobacco. You can’t really understand the sensational flavour behind this Tobacco e-liquid until you’ve tried it. Nothing is quite like vaping tobacco e-liquid, and no tobacco e-liquid can compare Vaper Empire’s premium Tobacco e-liquid. It’s truly a one of a kind delicacy.

    Chosen by each and every unknowing customer that voted with their dollar, this is Vaper Empire’s top ten most popular e-liquids. Check out our full list of Vaper Empire e-liquids by visiting our online store! We have even more e-liquid flavours, all of which were carefully and patiently crafted by our flavour-mixing experts.

    If you don’t have an e-cig, we have you covered there too! Vaper Empire offers a line of top quality e-cigs. Our e-cig line ranges from devices that are roughly the size and shape of a cigarette to devices that are much larger and considerably more powerful. Whether you want portability, power, or something in between, Vape Empire has an e-cig for you.

  • How Much Cheaper Is Vaping Than Smoking?

    When it comes to vaping, there’s a certain perceived quality. As opposed to lighting primitive sticks of tobacco with an open flame, vapers have a fully-contained, all-in-one nicotine dispensing device right in their pocket. Due to the e-cig’s electronic components, convenience, and trendy reputation, many assume that vaping will be more expensive than smoking.

    Often times, the opposite is true. Vaping is far more cost-effective than smoking, and in just a few months, a vaporizer can pay for itself. The initial purchase of an e-cig will usually cost more than buying a pack of cigarettes, but the savings really start to show when you purchase your first bottle of e-liquid.

    Compared to a box of cigarettes, a bottle of e-liquid is cheap! E-liquid can potentially save you a considerable amount of money, and the experience of vaping is, according to some vapers, far superior to that of smoking. By some accounts, vapour is tastier, smoother, and according to Public Health England’s findings, likely 95% less harmful than cigarette smoke.

    But just how much cheaper is vaping than smoking?

    The answer can vary depending on your nicotine consumption habits. Even if you smoke infrequently, switching to vaping can save you money. If you smoke a lot and switch to vaping, the savings will be higher. The fact of the matter is that e-liquids often cost far less than cigarettes, and the more you buy, the more those savings build.

    For the sake of a clear explanation, let’s use a common bottle size and nicotine strength and compare it to a box of cigarettes. This is the long-winded explanation. To cut straight to the chase and find out exactly how much you could be saving by making the switch from smoker to vaper, head on over to our homepage and use our savings calculator to quickly calculate your potential savings. Back to our long-winded explanation, people use a variety of nicotine strengths, but a good, middle of the road dosage is 6mg. Let’s use a 10ml bottle as an example.

    If a bottle says “6mg,” that doesn’t mean that the bottle contains 6mg of nicotine. It means that there’s 6mg of nicotine in every millilitre of e-liquid. A 10ml bottle of 6mg e-liquid will have roughly 60mg of nicotine in the entire bottle.

    The average cigarette can contain 12mg of nicotine, but because of how inefficient smoking is, you actually only inhale about 1mg of nicotine per cigarette. On average, a pack of 20 cigarettes generally costs around $30 in Australia. A 10ml bottle of e-liquid from Vaper Empire costs $11.95. A 10ml bottle of 6mg e-liquid contains 60mg of nicotine.

    Again, that’ll only cost $11.95, while a pack of cigarettes that provide far less nicotine will cost almost three times as much. Over time, you can potentially save a lot of money! If you smoke a pack of cigarettes per day, you could potentially save as much as $800 dollars per month, if not more, by switching to vaping.

    These calculations are a bit tricky because every cigarette brand has a slightly different amount of nicotine and the method used to measure nicotine in cigarettes is a little different than it is with e-liquid. Still, this estimation closely mirrors the savings that e-liquids offer. Switch for yourself and see how much less you spend per month on nicotine. It’s about three times as cost-effective. Lucky for you, if you're ready to switch now, we sell the best premium e-cigs and e-liquids on the market. Whether you’re looking for something that’s roughly the size and shape of a cigarette or something with a lot more power, Vaper Empire has you covered.

  • Beginner's Guide To E-Liquid

    Welcome to our beginner's guide to e-liquid. In this guide, you will find answers to common questions about e-liquid as well as expert insight from the team here at Vaper Empire.

    What is E-Liquid?

    It goes by many names: e-juice, e-liquid, vape juice, etc. It all means the same thing. E-liquid is usually a combination of vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, flavouring, and nicotine. Not all of these ingredients are present in every bottle of e-liquid, but e-liquid is almost always a combination of two or more of these ingredients.

    Vegetable Glycerin vs Propylene Glycol

    The base for every e-liquid is either vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, or a combination of the two. They make up the majority of the e-liquid and determine its consistency, while nicotine and flavouring are added to give the e-liquid its other properties.

    Vegetable Glycerin is thicker, sweeter, and smoother than propylene glycol. Cloud-chasers often prefer MAX VG e-liquids (e-liquids with little to no propylene glycol) due to the fact that it produces thicker clouds that are easier on the lungs.

    However, vegetable glycerin’s naturally sweet flavour can sometimes interfere with an e-liquid’s intended flavour. Not every flavour is supposed to be that sweet. E-liquid mixers will often use the flavourless propylene glycol to dial that sweetness back in order to get a more accurately-flavoured e-liquid.

    Propylene Glycol is a better agent for flavour due to the fact that it has no flavour of its own. You can add any flavour to it, and that flavour will come through uninhibited. It isn’t as smooth as vegetable glycerin. While VG is ideal for vapers that pull large clouds directly into their lungs, PG provides thinner vapour with a strong throat hit. This makes it ideal for cig-a-like products that aim to provide a cigarette-like throat hit.

    Now that we understand PG and VG, let’s talk about the remaining ingredients. flavouring is a given, but the remaining ingredient that requires an explanation is nicotine.

    Freebase Nicotine and Nicotine Salt

    Nicotine, while not present in all e-liquids, is a main ingredient in most of them. Vaper Empire's e-liquids are available in both nicotine-free and nicotine-infused variants.

    Nicotine is the main psychoactive ingredient in cigarettes, and the nicotine used in e-liquid gives vapers a similar sensation. Most e-liquids utilize freebase nicotine: nicotine in its purest, most isolated form.

    However, a newly popularized form of nicotine called “nicotine salt” or “nic salt” is quickly becoming a new favourite for many vapers.

    So why is nicotine salt becoming so popular?

    Without being overly-complicated, nicotine salt is a version of nicotine with a molecular structure closer to that of the nicotine found in tobacco leaves. Its main advantage is its smoothness. You can pack a lot more nicotine salt into an e-liquid before it becomes too harsh to handle.

    For instance, e-liquids with 50mg of nicotine salt are common, but an e-liquid with 50mg of freebase nicotine is unheard of as many would find it difficult to handle vapour that harsh.

    This is subjective, but many vapers have claimed that the effects from nicotine salt more closely resemble those of a cigarette when compared to freebase nicotine.

    Under certain circumstances, you’ll need different vaporizers for freebase and nic salt e-liquids. This has more to do with the strength of your e-liquid than the kind of nicotine being used, but nic salt is commonly associated with high nicotine strengths.

    For example, 12mg e-liquid, whether it uses nic salt or freebase nicotine, will be fine to use with high-wattage vaporizers. However, 50mg e-liquid (a nicotine strength found exclusively in nic salt e-liquids) would potentially be dangerous to use in a high-wattage vaporizer. For something that strong, you’ll want to use a low-wattage device.

    The Best Nicotine Strength

    The best nicotine strength will obviously vary from person to person. We’ll jump into the different strengths and who they’re for, but first, we should establish that one milligram of nicotine salt is equal to one milligram of freebase nicotine in terms of effects. E-liquids with higher nicotine content are simply more likely to use nicotine salt because it’s smoother than freebase.

    • 50mg - E-liquids with 50 milligrams of nicotine or more will use nicotine salt exclusively. E-liquid with that amount of freebase nicotine would be extremely difficult if not nearly impossible to vape. This is a very high nicotine concentration and it’s only suitable for those that are used to heavy nicotine consumption.
    • 35mg - This is another nicotine strength that you’re unlikely to see outside of nicotine salt e-liquids. It’s a high dose of nicotine, but for nicotine salt, it’s the middle of the road.
    • 24mg - Now we’re finally in freebase nicotine territory. Keep in mind that e-liquids with 24mg of nicotine or lower can use either nicotine salt or freebase nicotine with good results. You’ll find 24mg e-liquids in the freebase nicotine and nicotine salt categories. Just remember, the nicotine salt e-liquid will be a lot smoother. However, with a nicotine concentration that high, this isn’t always a good thing. Pace yourself when using high levels of nicotine salt to avoid nicotine poisoning.
    • 12mg - This is a common nicotine strength for vapers. This amount of freebase nicotine will still have a very noticeable impact on flavour, but with nicotine salt, the impact is quite subtle.
    • 3mg to 6mg - This is the ideal nicotine strength for sub-ohm vaporizers. It’ll provide the user with noticeable effects without noticeably compromising the flavour. Even with freebase nicotine, these nicotine levels won’t be too harsh for most.
    • 0mg - Not all e-liquid contains nicotine. If vaping appeals to you, but nicotine isn’t your thing, 0mg (also known as "0 nic") is the only way to go. A lot of vapers will start at a higher nicotine strength and work their way down to wean themselves off of nicotine completely. In this case, 0mg e-liquid is an end-goal.

    How Long Will a Bottle of E-liquid Last?

    The answer to this question will vary depending on the size of your bottle and how much you vape. To simplify things for the sake of explanation, let’s use a 60ml bottle of e-liquid as an example. A very heavy vaper might go through that in one to two weeks, while a light vaper could make it last well over a month. It varies so much from person to person that there’s only one way to know for sure. You just have to buy a bottle and keep track of the time.

    Once you’ve gotten accustomed to vaping, you’ll know how much e-liquid you need and how long it’ll last. If you’re new to vaping, 30ml is a good place to start. They’re small, inexpensive bottles of e-liquid that should last at least a few days for new vapers.

    Can You Buy E-liquid in Australia?

    Adults of legal vaping age in Australian territories that don't prohibit the possession of e-liquid can buy e-liquid directly from Vaper Empire's online e-liquid shop. There you will find a wide selection of Vaper Empire e-juice flavours to choose from, all of which are available with or without nicotine.

  • New Study Adds To The Evidence That Vaping Is Less Harmful Than Smoking

    Vaping is a global phenomenon and the industry has been growing rapidly over the last several years. While many smokers recognize the potential benefits of switching to vaping, there are still those who are unaware of the growing body of scientific evidence suggesting that vaping is less harmful than smoking, and now there's more evidence to add to the pile as a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) shows that vaping exposes users to less measurable known tobacco-related toxicants than smoking.

    The study, which was led by Maciej Goniewicz, marks the largest vaping safety study to date, but before we get into what the study entails and what its implications are, it’s important to remember that most vape studies are based on short-term data. Vaping simply hasn’t been around long enough for researchers to collect the amount of data needed for long-term data analysis. That being said, let’s take a look at this new study's findings and dive into its implications for smokers and vapers.

    The Research

    The study included a total of 5,105 participants from various backgrounds, ethnicities, and age groups, although most participants were between 35 and 54 years old. The researchers behind the study looked for biomarkers associated with known tobacco-related constituents in the study's participants. This included biomarkers associated with nicotine metabolites, tobacco-specific nitrosamines, metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and volatile organic compounds.

    Participants were split into four categories: cigarette users, e-cig users, never users, and dual users. The researchers then compared the findings between these three groups in order to better understand the effects of cigarettes and e-cigarettes.

    So what did they find out?

    Well, the results aren’t very surprising. The findings are consistent with those of previous studies. It suggests that e-cigarettes are far safer than traditional cigarettes. According to the study's findings, e-cigarette users are exposed to tobacco-related toxicants, but the concentrations of toxicants in e-cig users are far lower than those of cigarette users. In fact, e-cig users showed 10% to 98% lower concentrations of toxicants compared to cigarette users.

    This study also took a close look at dual users: those that use both cigarettes and e-cigs. Dual-users show signs of having far more tobacco-related toxicants than e-cig users and cigarette users. Those that only smoked cigarettes showed 10% to 36% lower concentrations of toxicants compared to those that vape and smoke.

    Conclusion

    This study reinforces the idea that vaping is far safer than smoking. However, there’s another big takeaway here. If you vape, you should really stop smoking. Vaping might seem like a great way to reduce the regularity of your smoking habit, but smoking and vaping seems to be worse for you than smoking exclusively. If you start vaping, you should only vape, otherwise you’re counteracting the supposed health benefits.

    In any case, there’s a lot of evidence to suggest that smoking is absolutely detrimental to your health. According to this study and several others, vaping carries a greatly reduced risk when compared to smoking. If you switch to vaping, make sure you switch for good.

    If you want to switch to vaping, you’re in luck! Vaper Empire carries the best premium e-cigs and e-liquids on the market.

  • Best Vapes: Vaper Empire's Most Popular E-Cigs

    Vaping is now a global phenomenon and it just keeps getting bigger. There are only a couple of things that you absolutely need in order to vape: a bottle of e-liquid and an e-cig.

    So what is an e-cig?

    E-cigs go by many names: vaporizers, vape pens, vapes, e-cigarettes, electronic cigarettes, etc. They all mean the same thing. E-cigs are electronic devices that are used in conjunction with e-liquid to make vapour that can then be inhaled by the user.

    E-cigs can be very different from one another in terms of their design, but all of them have a few things in common. Every e-cig has a battery and every e-cig has an atomiser. The battery supplies power to the atomiser, which should be in contact with your e-liquid. As the atomiser heats up, it causes your e-liquid to vaporize, resulting in clouds of vapour.

    Vaper Empire is well known across Australia and New Zealand for its premium quality e-cigs and e-liquids. All Vaper Empire devices are well-made, innovative, and stylish. And all Vaper Empire e-liquids are made from premium ingredients and strictly manufactured in state of the art clean rooms, ensuring the quality of every bottle sold.

    At Vaper Empire, we offer several different e-cig models to choose from, each made to perfectly suit a certain kind of vaper. This leaves the question: which one is best? To answer that question, let’s take a look at the four most popular Vaper Empire e-cigs, starting with the most popular, our cig-a-like style V-Pack II Series electronic cigarette.

    V-Pack II Series

    The V-Pack II Series is Vaper Empire's most popular e-cigarette kit. Stylish, simple, and easy to use. Make vaping easy with the V-Pack II.

    Currently, the V-Pack II is the most popular Vaper Empire e-cigarette, and it isn’t hard to see why. A lot of vapers love the classic “cigalike” form factor. A cigalike vape closely emulates the look and feel of a traditional cigarette, only with vapour instead of smoke.

    This kind of e-cig is often preferred by those that have been smoking for a while. The cigalike vaporizer is often the most natural-feeling transition from smoking to vaping for people that are used to having a cigarette between their fingers.

    The V-Pack II aims to be the ultimate cigalike vaporizer, boasting an innovative design, impressive battery life, superb performance, and Vaper Empire’s signature premium style. The V-Pack II comes with two cigalike vaporizers and a portable charging case that resembles a pack of cigarettes. Use it to carry two battery stems and a few extra cartridges.

    With the V-Pack II, you’re less likely to run out of both e-liquid and power. Switch your empty cartridge out for a new one at any time, and charge your e-cig in your pocket whenever you’re not using it. This vape setup will ensure uninterrupted vaping all day, and all you have to do is remember to charge the case at night.

    Vibe Series

    Vaper Empire Vibe Series The Vibe Series is one of Vaper Empire's most popular vapes, second only to the V-Pack II Series in terms of popularity. It offers a high capacity e-juice tank, powerful 2000 mAh battery, and an easy to use design that's great for beginner vapers.

    The Vibe Series is a real fan favourite over at Vaper Empire, and it’s currently our second most popular vaporizer. The Vibe Series was made with power in mind, but it was made to be very portable as well.

    Vibe users get the best of both worlds with this miniature cloud machine. It boasts performance that you typically wouldn’t see with a vaporizer of this size, and it does so while maintaining a very minimal form factor. The Vibe Series consists of two main parts: the battery and the tank.

    The battery provides 14 watts of power to the atomiser, and the Vibe Tank was made to perfectly utilize that power for robust, flavorful clouds of vapour. The Vibe Tank’s 4.5ml capacity will keep you vaping for a while, and the cloud production is more impressive than you’d think thanks to the advanced dual-coil atomiser.

    Furthermore, the advanced dual-coil atomiser produces thick, flavourful clouds of high-quality vapour. Power-oriented units like this one will always have a place in the world of vaping because there will always be power-oriented users. If you’re looking for an e-cig with respectable cloud production that won’t weigh down your pocket too much, the Vibe might just be the perfect vape for you.

    The Vibe Series boasts 14 watts of power, which is pretty impressive for such a compact unit. It’s even using a 2000 mAh battery, which is, again, very impressive for the unit’s size. The battery should provide the average vaper with at least a full day of vaping, and its 14 watts of power will ensure a very satisfying vape session every time.

    Vantage Series

    Vaper Empire Vantage Series Vape Pen This is the Vantage Series vape pen by Vaper Empire, the third most popular Vaper Empire brand e-cigarette to date. Compact, refillable, and easy to use.

    At $85, the Vantage Series is our most inexpensive e-cig, making it great for vapers on a budget. It’s also great for beginning vapers due to its simple, effortless functionality. This is one of our most popular units, likely due to its low price and shallow learning curve.

    The Vantage Series performs like a boss with a portable form factor and a user-friendly interface. Plus, it has Vaper Empire’s signature premium style. It’s a relatively low-powered device with vapour production to match. Don’t get this vaporizer expecting it to produce clouds on par with those of the Vibe Series. It just isn’t that kind of vaporizer. This e-cig is for those that prefer to sip their vapour, while the Vibe is more for those that prefer to take rips of vapour.

    Although it isn’t quite as powerful as Vaper Empire's Vibe Series, it still produces high-quality, flavourful vapour without asking much of the user. With the Vantage Series, there are no temperature or wattage settings to mess with. You simply press the fire button and take a hit. It doesn’t offer a lot in terms of customizability and variety, but it offers a high-quality vaping experience that’s very straightforward and accessible to everyone.

    For most vapers, the Vantage’s 1.6ml clearomiser will require refilling on a day to day basis, but that 1.6ml of e-liquid lasts longer than you’d expect. The Vantage’s single-coil atomiser provides optimal flavour while simultaneously preserving your e-liquid for extended vape sessions.

    The 650 mAh battery might not sound like much, but it has more than enough power for a vape pen like the Vantage Series. The average vaper should be able to get at least a day of use from the 650 mAh battery before recharging, and you should be able to effortlessly obtain consistent high-quality performance from the Vantage Series e-cig.

    V-Twist Series

    Vaper Empire V-Twist Series Vape Pen The V-Twist Series is a slim portable vape pen that offers a refillable tank and easy to use design.

    The V-Twist is another fan favourite at Vaper Empire. It's kind of like an improved version of the Vantage Series. It has a very similar look and design, but almost all of the V-Twist’s specifications are upgraded. What advantage does the V-Twist Series have over the Vantage Series?

    First of all, the V-Twist features a 900 mAh battery, which is significantly more powerful than the Vantage's 650 mAh battery. In contrast to the Vantage, the V-Twist also offers users more e-liquid capacity in its slightly larger tank, which has a filling capacity of 1.7ml. On top of these improvements, the V-Twist also offers a dual-coil atomiser, which serves as a dramatic improvement over the Vantage's single-coil atomiser.

    Unlike the Vantage Series, the V-Twist Series offers an adjustable voltage option. With the V-Twist’s five voltage settings, you can set your e-cig to fire at either 3.2V, 3.6V, 4.0V, 4.4V, or 4.8V. Cycling through these voltage options will change the amount of power being supplied to your atomiser, changing the unit’s vapour production and throat hit.

    The V-Twist produces high-quality vapour, and thanks to its customizability, you can experiment and find the voltage setting that’s perfect for you. Once you’ve found your sweet spot, you likely won’t be changing the voltage settings very often.

    If you want an e-cig that’s capable of achieving top-notch vapour quality with a simple, straightforward interface, the V-Twist might be the best vaporizer for you. This is basically the Vantage with better battery life, an improved atomiser, and a few more options with which to customize your vape session. This is one e-cig that vapers of all kinds will love it for its high-quality vapour, premium specifications, expansive options, and ease of use.
