JustFog MINIFIT VS. Perkey eCard

Pod Vape Kits are popular for a good reason – a combination of compact design, ease of use and a mouth to lung draw make them a firm favourite for new users and experienced vapers looking for a device to use on the go. This month we’re pitting two of the most popular refillable pod kits on the market head to head – the Justfog MINIFIT and the Perkey eCard.

For those of you unfamiliar with pod vapes, they are a vape device which use cartridges that contain eliquid and a coil, that plug into a mod. These pods can either be disposed of when empty, or in some cases – such as with the two devices mentioned above they can be refilled with your choice of High Nicotine eliquid.

Perkey eCard

The Perkey Ecard is a compact vape starter kit, that has a 400 mAh built in battery and uses 2ml refillable pods. This is a large capacity battery for a mod of this size and it can be recharged via it’s USB slot. The eCard kit comes with two refillable pods with replacement pods available. These pods are recommended for use with higher PG eliquids and can also be used with salt nicotine eliquids.

With a mouth to lung draw and 1.5 Ohm coils this device is suited for those looking for a restricted inhale, similar to that of a cigarette. The Perkey is also breath activated: by simply inhaling on the device’s mouthpiece vapour production will begin, those looking for extra power will be pleased to know that on the side of the Perkey is a ‘turbo button’ for increased power output.

With it’s slim profile and easy operation, the Perkey eCard Starter Kit is understandably a growing favourite amongst vapers of all levels.

JustFog MINIFIT

The JustFog MINIFIT is a small yet chunky pod vape kit. It’s powered by a built in 370 mAh battery that can be charged through the device’s USB port. The MINIFIT utilises 1.5ml refillable pods that are wicked with super absorbent Japanese cotton for improved taste. The device uses 1.6 Ohm coils; each pod has two juice ports for quicker and cleaner refilling.

By using a 1.6 Ohm coil this kit is designed to be used with high PG eliquids for an increased throat hit. The JustFog offers a tighter inhale for a mouth to lung vape, that mimics the draw of a cigarette. This device also has multiple safety features including Short Circuit Protection, Overheating Protection, Overdischarge Protection and Overcharge Protection giving the user peace of mind when using and charging the MINIFIT.

With it’s clean aesthetic, easy refilling and portability the JustFog MINIFIT is ideal for vapers looking for a discreet device and new users looking for a reliable vape starter kit.

Summary

Overall, these are two devices that are well balanced; being simple enough to operate for new starters, yet still providing enough power and features to keep established vapers happy. There is no clear winner here, but both devices have their upsides – the Perkey has a larger battery, the MINIFIT uses Japanese cotton wicks for improved flavour. It really comes down to preference.

Guide to Travelling with eCigs and Vapes

April, is always a popular month for holidays, and with VApril still going strong we’d like to encourage you to keep using your vape even when away from home. Travelling by air can be stressful at the best of times, so we’ve compiled a handy guide to help you use your ecigarette abroad.

Check Before You Travel

The laws surrounding vaping differ from country to country, we always recommend you check on the relevant government websites before you start vaping in a foreign country. The same is true when travelling by air to your destination, airlines rarely let you vape onboard their aircraft, or in the airport itself.

Travel Checklist

Boarding Pass, Passport, Tickets… oh yes, Vape! Make sure when you travel you’re prepared for any ecigarette emergency, we recommend you bring the following:

Packing Tips

Imagine opening your suitcase on arrival and your flip flops and Hawaiian shirts are covered in eliquid – not a great start. Proper packing can help keep your holiday gear in tip top condition.

We recommend you secure eliquid bottles to avoid leaks, to avoid breakage plastic bottles are a good idea. Invest in a decent vape carry case, it will not not only help you keep things organised but also protect your vape hardware.

Same goes for vape batteries, keep them stored in either individual vape battery cases or rubber sleeves. Finally, empty your tank before boarding the flight as the change in air pressure can cause leaks.

Getting Through Security

A lot of people ask ‘can you bring eliquid on planes?’ Eliquid is subject to the same laws as any other liquid when travelling by plane. Usually no more than 100ml of liquid per bottle, and they should be stored in clear plastic bags. Make sure you stick to the law to avoid confiscation of your new tasty shortfill.

Keep your vaping gear in your hand luggage, along with the original packaging (if possible) in case you need to prove that it is a vape device. With this in mind keep your vape device fully assembled, a separated battery and atomiser can raise suspicion. Finally, don’t vape in the airport unless in the designated area.

Of course the laws surrounding bringing a vape on a plane will differ across the board. The CAA offer guidelines to help.

Arrival

You’ve made it through security, the plane has landed, and you’re settled into your hotel / questionable looking hostel that’s definitely not four stars as advertised. Put your feet up and soak up a bit of the atmosphere – before you start chucking clouds make sure you check with the staff that you can use your ecigarette in the hotel.

PLEASE NOTE: The information is a general guide to travelling with ecigarettes and vaping equipment, but further research should always be taken before travelling. Laws and regulations of a country can change over time, so it’s wise to find out the current laws in your destination before embarking. Vape Club holds no responsibility for what experiences you may have on your travels.

Vape Club’s Staff Eliquid Picks of April 2018

April may be the month of fools, but you can’t pull the wool over our eyes! Picking the right flavour is a very subjective experience and with the launch of VApril vaping is becoming more popular. To help you on your way, we’re proud to present our favourite eliquids of April 2018, as chosen by us.

VApril 2018: A Guide to Vaping

With the growing popularity of vaping and increasing support for the health benefits of ecigarettes, we are pleased to announce that Vape Club have partnered up with UK Vaping Industry Association (UKVIA), amongst others to create VApril.

What is VApril you ask? VApril is a month long celebration of all the good things in vaping, from the community, to its inherent health benefits. In 2018 we ask smokers to take the VApril challenge to try and give up the cigarettes for good. It has a similar inspiration to Stoptober in that we are urging people to give up smoking, and in this case pick up a vape.

Expert Opinion

John Dunne, director of UKVIA has said “This will be the largest campaign ever run by the vaping industry and reflects how far the sector has come in a relatively short period of time”

This comes off the back of the recent PHE Report, with key findings including:

  • Vaping poses a fraction of the risk compared to smoking.
  • Switching completely from smoking to vaping has substantial health benefits.
  • E-cigarettes could be assisting with 20,000 new quits every year.
  • E-cigarette use is linked to improved quit success rates a drop in smoking rates across the country.

With the most substantial being – “e-cigarettes are around 95% less harmful than smoking”

The Issue of Cost

One of the biggest drives behind quitting smoking is cost, with an average 20 pack of cigarettes costing £10 in the UK. If you were a light smoker, smoking 10 cigarettes a day, that would cost around £1825 per year. Compared to the use of a disposable cigalike, such as the Vaporlites VL5, which contains the equivalent inhales of 20 cigarettes for £4.99, which would cost you around £912 per year. For 20 a day smokers the average spend would be around £3650 for cigarettes, versus £1825 if you were to use the VL5.

Here to Help

Getting into vaping is easier with ever, with constant upgrades to existing devices and new ones being released; vaping has a focus on supporting new starters. For further information on the right vape starter kit for you, we recommend you take a look at our Starter Kit Blog Post.

If you have any questions regarding VApril, starter kits or general enquiries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

VApril 2018 Guide to Vape Starter Kits

With VApril just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to ditch the cigs, and get into vaping. It can all seem a bit intimidating at first with the huge array of different devices and equipment on offer. This week we’re doing a roundup of some of our favourite starter kits. These vape starter kits can be split into distinct categories – Pod Vapes, Cigalikes, and Pen Vapes.

Cigalike

The cigalike is an inhale activated vape device. Meaning that by drawing on it as you would a cigarette it will begin to produce vapour. The cigalike is light and compact, featuring a Cartomiser that’s preloaded with eliquid. The Cartomisers can be replaced when empty, and they often feature a variety of flavours – from tobacco to fruit mixes. This particular ecigarette is often the first port of call for those looking to move into vaping. We offer both the Vapourlites VL4 e-cig Starter Kit and the VL5 Starter Kit.

Pod Vape Kits

Pod vape kits have been designed to be simple to use and maintain, comprised of a battery and pod atomiser – which contains a coil, cotton, and eliquid. A relatively new kind of vape device, the pod system will see a wave of constant innovation and variations, driving better performance and ease of use. Salt Nicotine eliquids are becoming increasingly popular for use with pod vapes as they combine high nicotine content with a smooth throat hit.

Pods are favoured not only by new users but also experienced vapers – for their clean aesthetic and discreet vaping capabilities. There are two categories that these vape devices can be split into: ‘refillable pod vapes’ and ‘closed pod systems’.

Closed pod systems, such as the aforementioned ‘Cigalike’, use pre-filled eliquid pods, that when empty can be disposed of and replaced; which makes them the less complicated option; simply plug in and vape. Closed pod vapes include the Aspire Gusto Mini, Myblu Vape Starter Kit, and the SMPO Ultra Portable Vape, which each have a range of prefilled pods.

On the other hand, refillable pod systems allow the user to refill their pod atomisers with their choice of eliquid, again, most commonly high nicotine ejuices; with a 50 PG or higher ratio. These devices combine the variety and choice of eLiquids, but with the simplicity of a basic device.

Those looking for refillable pod vapes should check out the Justfog Minifit, Mi Pod Refillable Vape, and Kimsun 2R Slim.

Pen Vapes

Pen vapes are perhaps the most common vape device. Made up of a battery and a clearomiser tank. Vape pens work well with new users as they often have one-button operation and a mouth to lung inhale, which mimics the draw of a cigarette.

In terms of eliquid, we recommend using a High PG and medium to high Nicotine strength ejuice for best results; the most common being 10mg and upwards. We stock a large number of vape pen starter kits – such as the JACVapour S17 TF, Innokin Endura T18e, and the Innokin PocketMod Kit. All of these vape mods have an integrated battery, meaning they can be charged via USB.

Closing Points

The vaping market is constantly evolving, providing existing and prospective vapers with a wide field of options. With a myriad of hardware, eliquid, and accessories – you’ll be in the position to find a kit to start off your vaping journey. We’d like to wish all of you a very happy VApril.

As usual, if you have any questions relating to starter kits or vaping in general, please contact us.

Safety Guide For Mech Vape Mods

The mechanical mod is the final frontier of vaping, the pinnacle of experience and courage. Hyperbole aside, using a mechanical mod is perhaps the rawest kind of vaping possible – thanks to it’s unregulated output. It’s important to remember that a mechanical / unregulated vape device is recommended to only the most experienced users out there. Users who have an extensive knowledge of battery safety, battery output, Ohm’s law and vaping as a whole.

Vape grandmasters will tell you that using a mechanical is an experience unlike any other. Through the simple act of pushing a fire button you complete a circuit that runs the power of your  vape battery through your unregulated device and into your RDA. With this in mind, we’d like to talk you through a few points of safety to help you get the best experience when using your mechanical mod.

How Low Can You Go?

You know that old saying – ‘just because you can, doesn’t mean you should’ well that applies to vaping as much as anything else. Yes, you can put a build below 0.2 Ohm into your RDA and fire it on your unregulated device, but here’s the thing – the lower the resistance the more likely it is that you run the risk of a flow of power that can cause the battery to vent, or in extreme circumstances cause a thermal runaway. To avoid this risk build coils at 0.2 ohms or above, you’ll get plenty of cloud and more importantly peace of mind.

The Right Tools For The Job

An Ohms reader or Ohmmeter is an essential piece of kit for anyone who is looking to build their own coils. Doubly so for those who are looking to move to using an unregulated device. A Ohmmeter allows you to check the resistance of your coil, if there are any short circuits, and that your coils are correctly fitted. If you were to skip this vital stage and fire your RDA on your mechanical mod without checking, the results can be deadly. The same can be said for a coil building kit, these specially designed vape tools allow the user to build coils efficiently and effectively, and increase safety. the Coilmaster V3 Kit contains not only the proper tools but a working ohmmeter.

The Coil, The Battery, The Relationship

We talked earlier about the danger of building a coil with too low a resistance, It boils down to the relationship between the battery and the coil. The rule of thumb is, the higher the Ohm rating the less Amps from the battery are needed. This is where Ohm’s law really comes into play. it’s used to confirm that the amount of energy you are discharging from your battery is safe.

‘I = V / R’ is the equation that will decide it all for you. Where ‘I’ is Current or what we call Amps, ‘V’ is Voltage, and ‘R’ is Resistance. Let’s do an example (it’s just like school but with more fun clouds’).

You have a fully charged LG HG2 18650 3.7V 20A Battery, and an RDA with a registered 0.3 Ohm coil build.  3.7 divided by 0.3 equals 12.3. Meaning this build will draw 12.3 Amps from the battery, this is perfectly safe for a 20 Amp battery; making this a practical combination of coil and battery to use with an unregulated device. Remember to keep your batteries charged as voltage can drop and this will have an adverse effect on your vape.

Summary

The above tips are a good jumping off point and have hopefully supplemented your vaping knowledge. When using dual battery mechanical mods, the rules take on a new dimension of complexity. We recommend you read up thoroughly on the difference between series and parallel circuits, and remember the golden rule ‘if it doesn’t seem safe, don’t do it’. We can’t reiterate this point enough, if you do not have the correct tools, vape hardware and knowledge you’ll be setting yourself up for disaster.

We stock a number of unregulated mods such as the Geekvape Athena, Vandy Vape Pulse, and more. If you have any questions regarding this topic, or vaping in general please do not hesitate to contact us.

Pod Vapes 2018: Closed and Refillable Systems Explained

 

Even the simplest vape device can appear daunting to new users. The risk of leaks, faulty batteries and even the hassle of refilling; are all reasons that stop people making the move over to ecigarettes. Well, the pod vape changes that. There are two classifications for pod vape kits: Open or Refillable Systems and Closed Systems. The video below is our brief introduction into pod devices.


Closed Systems are ideal for new starters – they include disposable pods which contain both a coil and up to 2ml of high nicotine eliquid, simply plug it into the accompanying mod and you’re ready to go. This coupled with a tight mouth to lung draw, that mimics that of a cigarette and one button operation; make this a range of vape devices that are simple to use and maintain.

For those who like a bit of variety there’s the open system; still utilising pods, the open system uses refillable pods which can be filled with the High PG eliquid of your choice. This can act as a stepping stone towards sub ohm vaping.

Today, we’re going to walk you through some prime examples of pod vapes. Each have their own unique features and benefits, designed for new users and existing vapers looking to simplify things.

Before we get started, some honourable mentions for upcoming releases for pod vape kits in 2018 include the JustFog MINIFITPerkey EcardSmok FITSmok Infinix, and Sigelei M Class. Check out our video below for a beginner’s guide to pod kits.

 


SMPO Ultra Portable Starter Kit

The SMPO comes to us courtesy of Nex Labs, this London-based design team have created a stylish yet functional vape device. Using the closed pod system the user simply has to install their pod and get to vaping. Being breath activated means that the user can control their vapour production, plus an included low liquid indicator and temperature control make this device a real winner.

 

Kimsun Slim 2R

If you’re looking for a vape device that matches ergonomics and durability then look no further than the Kimsun Slim 2R. The Kimsun is an open system pod vape, allowing the user to fill the pod with their choice of high nicotine eliquid. What sets the Kimsun apart are the safety features built into the device, including short circuit protection, overtime protection and low voltage protection. Giving the user peace of mind and more time to enjoy their vape.

 

Aspire Gusto Mini Kit

Aspire have hit the mark with the Gusto Mini. Through it’s intuitive design and collaboration with ejuice giant Element Eliquids, the Gusto provides the user with a device that provides good cloud and great flavour. The NS20 eLiquid pods are filled with Element’s own blend of eliquids and salt nicotine, giving the user the high nicotine that they crave – but with a smoother taste. The NS20 range is also available for those that use refillable vape kits, with the NS20 10ml eLiquid range.

 

My Blu Starter Kit

Simple yet elegant the My Blu Starter Kit is a pod vape that means business. This is a closed pod device, but users need not worry about a lack of choice, Blu have bought out a large range of eliquid pods to go with the kit. These pods click easily into place and the device is activated by inhaling. Meaning this is a device you can use straight out of the box.

 

Summary

While simple, the pod vape has a lot to offer users – it’s portability, ease of use and stylish design has made them a favourite vape device across the board, why not check out our range?

Guide to 20700 and 21700 Vape Batteries

It’s a situation that we’ve all found ourselves in, you’re out and about happily vaping away on your 18650 powered mod and the dreaded low power message flashes up. That’s it, game over; everyone go home.

Maybe a tad dramatic but you get the point. Vaping, like most battery powered technology, has been held back to a degree by battery capacity, luckily for us – necessity is the mother of invention. With the recent surge of 20700 and 21700 batteries, vapers are being given access to a power source that matches their needs.  

All of the 18650, 20700, and 21700 vape batteries get their name from their size dimensions. An 18650 battery has an 18mm diameter and a 65mm length, with a 20700 battery having 20mm diameter and 70mm, and the slightly larger 21700 battery being almost the same size as the 20700, but 21mm in diameter. On the face of it these dimensions are quite similar. The difference in performance however, is very noticeable.

There are a number of advantages to the 20700 and  21700 vape batteries. They generally have an increased mAh output compared to 18650 batteries as well as a longer lifespan, sometimes up to 13 months depending on how heavily they’re used. Perhaps most importantly, they can help increase the battery life of your favourite mod. Most mods that take a 21700 will also fit a 20700, so it seems these two batteries almost go hand in hand together.

With this in mind, we’re going to give you a rundown of some of the best 20700 and 21700 vape devices currently available on the market.

Eleaf iStick Pico 21700 Kit

A reimagining of the classic Eleaf design, the iStick Pico 21700 is an easy to use starter kit, that benefits from an increased battery life and a maximum output of 100w. Included with the kit is the Ello vape tank, which features a wide flow and uses low resistance atomisers. Overall this is the perfect mod for someone looking to get into sub ohm vaping, and who will benefit from using a 21700. If this seems a bit daunting, don’t panic, the kit is also compatible with an 18650 0r 20700 battery!

 

Wismec RX2 21700 Box

Well, Wismec have done it again, the latest in the incredibly popular series of RX vape mods, the RX2 21700 mod features the chunky design and smooth curves that made the original such a hit. The new version has 2A charging, which means you’ll be up and running faster than usual, when those dual 21700 batteries eventually do run flat. With the included battery adaptor, the RX2 can also support dual 18650s.

 

Geekvape Blade 235W Box

The Geekvape Blade 235W TC is a vape device that has much of the functionality usually confined to high end vape mods, including: variable power control – five programmable wattage presets the user can select, for the Blade to fire at sequentially and Bypass Mode – allowing the device to draw power directly from the battery, like a mechanical mod. This combined with a colourful design, makes for an eye-catching dual 21700 battery mod. The Blade also comes with a battery adaptor, meaning it can use dual 20700 batteries or 18650 batteries as an alternative.

 

Lost Vape Mirage DNA75C Box

The Mirage DNA75C Box is powered by a single 21700 battery and utilises the powerful Evolv DNA75 Chipset, allowing for consistent firing rate and balanced output features with a maximum output of 75W. Furthermore, it has a strong aesthetic, thanks to the resin inlay, providing each with a unique colour swirl pattern. What’s more, by fitting the battery adaptor the Mirage can be powered by an single 18650 or 20700 rather than a 21700 battery. If you’re looking for a mod that holds it charge and looks good while doing it, you’re in safe hands with the Mirage.

 

Ijoy Capo 100w Squonk Kit

Even squonk enthusiasts aren’t being left out in the 21700 battery movement. The Ijoy Capo 100w Squonk Box is powered by a single 21700 battery, with the option of using an 18650 or 20700 when used with the correct adaptor included. The Capo has a generously sized 9ml squonk bottle – fill that up and you’re good to go. The kit also includes the Ijoy Combo RDA, with it’s angled build deck that will fit a range of coils. Those looking to take the plunge into squonking with a big battery reserve need look no further than the Ijoy Capo 100w Squonk Kit.

Summary

As can be seen, both the 20700 and the 21700 battery are both becoming a staple power source for vapers, for both vape starter kits and high-performance box mods, giving vapers of all levels access to better-performing vape devices.

Why not check out our range of mods and batteries and see what takes your fancy.

Guide to Shortfill Vape Eliquid

What is Short Fill Eliquid?

When the TPD came into effect in May 2017, it banned the sale of eliquids containing nicotine in bottles bigger than 10ml.

Cue the short fill. A short fill is defined as an underfilled bottle of eliquid that a Nicotine Shot (10ml bottle of 18mg flavourless e-liquid) can be added to. For example, a 60ml short fill eliquid would contain 50ml 0f 0mg e-liquid to which you could a 10ml 18mg nicotine shot. When mixed you would have 60ml of 3mg e-liquid.

How Does it Work?

It’s simply a case of adding your chosen nicotine shot into the short fill bottle and shaking vigorously (remember to put the cap back on first) – this will make sure that the nicotine has mixed properly with the eliquid. Mixing is easy once you know how, check out the handy chart below to help you get the correct ratio of nicotine and eliquid for your short fill.

Good or Bad?

On the face of it, the short fill is a great idea – big bottles equal big fun. In a lot of cases one 50ml short fill is cheaper than six 10ml bottles. There is a question of ease of use. Short fills can get a bit messy one slip of the hand when adding your nicotine shot can cause an irritating spill.

Where safety is concerned, short fills are much much safer than pure DIY mixing where it is common for large quantities of raw nicotine to be purchased and used, always take extra care when handling your nicotine and eLiquid.

For those of you who vape 0mg of nicotine and want to use short fills – one word of warning, short fill eliquids often include extra flavour to accommodate for when the nicotine has been added (a bit like fruit squash before you add water), it has been reported that 0mg short fills may be too intense in flavour and may shorten the life of your coils.

The best thing to do is add 10ml of flavourless eliquid (or straight PG, straight VG or a combination of the two) to offset this.

 

We always advise that you buy high quality nicotine shots and e-liquids; as poor quality nicotine shots can wreck the flavour of your e-liquid. We recommend that you match the VG / PG ratios of your eliquids and nicotine shots for the best experience.

Overall, short fill eliquid is popular and for good reason, it’s far easier to carry one large bottle around if you’re vaping consistently throughout the day, more so if you’re dripping or using a high wattage sub ohm set-up. They also allow vapers to accurately measure for themselves how much nicotine is going into their e-liquid and most importantly have convinced companies to bring out new ranges of juices, which means more flavours for us!
