Variety of vape kits

How Vaping Has Evolved

When we first opened our doors in 2014, vaping was still fairly new even though the technology had already been around for about a decade. People were skeptical at first, but willing to give it a try since every other method to stop smoking hadn’t worked for them. Soon, we started to see hundreds of people make the switch from cigarettes to vape kits and put cigarettes down for good!

We were first helping people make the switch with pen style vape kits like the Kanger Evod Kit. There was no adjustable airflow, adjustable power, no customization, yet it worked. As the industry grew and technology advanced, the Vapor Industry started to evolve. Soon there were rebuildable atomizers, box mods, and massive clouds. Vape kits and devices became more customizable with adjustable airflow, adjustable power, and vaping style (mouth-to-lung or direct-to-lung).

Fast forward to today and it’s a whole new vaping world. As it turns out, everyone is different even when it comes to vaping preferences. Some prefer a mouth-to-lung (MTL) style like a cigarette draw, and some prefer a direct-to-lung (DTL) full inhale. With the vape hardware available today, you can find the perfect vape kit for you no matter your preference.

Better Battery Life, Better Vaping

The Vapor Industry has come a long way from the Evod Kit. We’re not saying it’s a “bad” vape kit or that it can’t help people stop smoking. On the contrary, it’s a great device and a decent amount of people in the greater Houston area owe their success to the Evod Kit! In fact, this style of kit is still perfect for many people just making the switch to vaping. We carry several kits like the Evod with even better battery life and adjustable settings.

Take for instance the Aspire K Lite. It’s a simple device with 5 power settings, a single button, sleek design, and MTL tank. If you vape with the K Lite as often as you were craving a cigarette, the battery life should last you all day. This is one of our go-to recommendations for smokers making the switch to vaping and it really has been since day one. This kit is only a couple of years old, but the K Lite Tank uses the same coils as one of the first tanks we carried (and still do) called the ET-S tank.

If you aren’t bothered by size and don’t mind carrying something that has a little more weight to it, you could pair an MTL tank (like the Nautilus XS Tank) with a single battery device and increase your battery life by days. Yes, days. External battery devices like the Aspire Deco Mod are powered by external batteries which have significantly longer life than an internal battery. When paired with a MTL tank that requires much less power to vape, you won’t have to worry about depleted batteries in the middle of the workday. Plus, you can get a spare battery so that you always have one charged to swap out with.

sub-ohm vaping

Sub-Ohm Vape Kits for Dropping Nicotine

For some, small clouds don’t cut it. Some people prefer a deep, full inhale for several reasons: flavor, vapor production, and nicotine strength. You can still get decent flavor with a small MTL tank, but with a sub-ohm tank, you can customize your vaping experience even more. Alongside large clouds and flavor, sub-ohm tanks allow you to drop your nicotine strength down with ease. We’ve seen people start with a 12mg in their Evod Kit, upgrade to a sub-ohm setup, and gradually drop their nicotine strength all the way down to 0mg. Eventually, they stop by one last time to say goodbye with a huge smile on their face! Not only did they successfully kick their smoking habit, but they also overcame their nicotine dependence altogether. Saying goodbye never felt so good!

flavored vape

Flavored E-Liquid – An Important Key for Success

Vapor technology has come a long way and there’s not much more to perfect with the current vape kits available these days. Sure, you can find devices with Bluetooth speakers and voice activation, but the core necessities are well covered. As long as you find the right device for you, all you need is the willingness to stop smoking cigarettes, a supportive Vapor Shop, and a flavor you love. What better way to curb your cravings and get away from cigarettes than vaping something that tastes nothing like a cigarette? Again, everyone is different. Some people love a straight tobacco flavor, some prefer fruit, some want a chilled menthol. That’s the beauty of having all flavors available and that is why the industry will always fight for your access to flavored E-Liquid.

If you've tried vaping before, but it didn't work for you, we hope you'll give it another chance! As technology has grown over the years, vape kits have greatly improved. Visit your local Vapor Shop and make the switch today!
