Frequently Asked Questions
Vaporisers differ from the standard e-cigarette in that they do not resemble tobacco cigarettes at all, have a longer battery life, can hold more e-liquid at one time, and come with a wider range of customisation options that are, in most cases, geared towards the more advanced e-smoker.
Those are just a few of the differences between e-cigarettes and vaporisers.
Does vaping cause cancer?A study conducted last year by scientists from British American Tobacco, and published in the journal Mutation Research, tested both e-cig vapor with cigarette smoke for their ability to cause cell mutations in bacteria. The smoke caused mutations, and was also toxic to the bacteria, while the vapor was neither mutagenic nor toxic. There is no current evidence at all that suggests vaping — with or without nicotine — causes cancer. ~vaping360~ See the whole article here
At Super Vape we can set you up with a starter kit for only R380 and some top quality e-juice from as little as R100
Super Vape sells premium quality e-juice with ZERO NICOTINE for those who love to vape but do not need the nic rush.
Some uses of Propylene GlycolPG was used commercially well before the invention of the first e-cig. It is an organic solvent (meaning it is naturally-occurring) and is colourless, odourless and clear, and has a faintly sweet taste. You can find PG in a lot of the food and hygiene products that are most likely in your home right now, some of these include:
Similar to fog machines and asthma inhalers, the role of PG in vapour atomisers and e-cigarettes is to help mix liquid ingredients that would otherwise not mix with each other. This process creates a stable fluid that can deliver vaporized e-liquid when inhaled.
Propylene Glycol also reduces the boiling point of liquid nicotine to allow vaporization to happen at a much lower temperature than what is required for a tobacco cigarette. The lower density of PG liquid also means that gunk doesn’t build up on the heating element of your vapour cigarette as fast as it does when thicker liquid is used.
Is PG safe in e-liquids?Propylene glycol has been safely used as a non-active ingredient in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and food products for over 50 years, and studies show that it has a meagre degree of toxicity. The FDA in America has classified PG as completely “safe for human consumption.” However, some vapers do experience some minor reactions to PG-based liquid, such as a dry throat, muscle soreness, and odorous urine. This is because PG is also a humectant, meaning it attracts moisture and can dry out your throat after use. Also, when metabolized by your body, PG quickly turns into lactic acid, which can make your muscles ache more than usual. To offset these symptoms, drink plenty of water to flush the lactic acid from your system and soothe your throat. If side effects persist or worsen after a few days, you may be allergic to PG, and you should try VG only based e-liquids instead.
Vegetable Glycerin SafetyHaving the term “glycerine” in its name probably doesn’t make VG sound particularly safe, but don’t be alarmed. Also known as vegetable glycerol and is a carbohydrate extracted from the oil in plants (that’s where the “vegetable” part comes from. At Super Vape we only sell USP and BP grade VG so you can feel assured of best the qaulity. In addition to serving as a base for e-juice, VG is also used as sweetener and additive in a number of household items, including:
Glycerol is one of the most organic substances on the planet and is therefore easily metabolized by the body. Because of its benign nature, the likelihood of having an allergic reaction to VG is extremely low, which makes it a popular substitute for the harsher throat hit of e-juices that contain mostly PG.
NoteVapers who experience dry mouth, sore throat or increased thirst after using VG-based e-juice typically notice these symptoms disappear after a few days to a week as the body begins to adjust. These symptoms can also be reduced or prevented by drinking lots of water during your first few weeks of vaping.
The PG/VG proportion is responsible for the throat hit and vapour production. At Super Vape we carry a 70/30 VG/PG as well as a 80/20 VG/PG blend, because we’ve found those particular ratios provide the best mix.
When correctly applied, this process improves the overall quality of the vaping experience by bringing out the strengths of certain flavours when vaporised at various temperatures. However, the use of variable voltage/wattage vaporisers requires some knowledge of amps, watts and resistance levels – otherwise you risk accidentally burning out the heating coil or even frying the e-liquid.
You will definitely want to learn about how variable voltage/wattage works before you attempt it on your own.
Generally, mAh is used to describe battery power—and you may have even correctly guessed that the higher the number, the stronger the battery. But what is the meaning of “mAh”? And perhaps an even better
Question: Why should you care?mAh is short for “milliampere-hour” and coveys the total charge capacity of a battery. As a unit for measuring electrical power over a length of time, mAh is commonly used in describing how much energy a battery can store at one time. For instance, a battery rated at 1000 mAh can last for one hour delivering one amp of power (1,000 millamperes = 1 amp) before it is completely drained. Thus, a fully-charged battery with a higher mAh rating can typically power a device that consumes more power for longer and/or stronger before it needs to be re-charged. Batteries with more mAh also tend to be physically bigger and heavier.
How important is the mAh Rating?Understanding mAh is necessary if you want to calculate how long your battery will last, of if you are using a Mech Mod.
First though, you have to know how much electrical current your battery and cartomizer use up when engaged.
Start by dividing the voltage of your battery by the resistance level of your atomizer. For instance, according to one analysis, a 2.5 ohm atomizer paired with a 3.7 volt battery — a common configuration — would draw 1.48 amps (or 1480 mAh). If your battery or atomizer has a different voltage or resistance measurement, use the Ohm’s Law Calculator to determine the electrical current drawn by your device (in amps) and then multiply it by 1000 to arrive at your milliampere number.
Like any other consumable product, your vape juice does have a shelf life. Properly handling and storing your e-liquid can go a long way in preserving its taste and preventing it from going stale prematurely. In fact, a bottle of e-liquid can last for up to two years if you are following the right storage techniques.
Sensitivity to Light and Heat
Vape juice should be kept someplace dark and cool. Whether your e-liquid does or does not contain nicotine, it is always a good idea to store out of reach of children and pets. The nicotine in e-liquid is sensitive to light and heat, and the blend will lose its freshness and flavour faster when exposed to these elements for too long. Low temperatures delay the natural chemical processes that breakdown vape juice and also slow down the growth of bacteria. Some vapers choose to store their extra bottles of e-liquid in their refrigerator or freezer, but this can sometimes alter the taste and consistency of the blend. Keeping your liquid at or just below room temperature (18-22 degrees Celsius) is ideal. If you do decide to store your juice in the fridge, allow it to return to room temperature before vaping. Basements are typically darker and cooler than the rest of the house, and therefore a great place to store vape juice. Cabinets and cupboards are also excellent places for long-term e-liquid storage since they also offer an easy way to keep your supplies from getting into the wrong hands by choosing a cabinet that is high up or locking the doors.
The plastic bottles that most e-liquids come in are not meant for long-term storage, so if you like to buy your supplies in bulk (and you plan to store your e-juice for a month or longer), then we recommend transferring it to an air-tight glass bottle with tinted glass.
