Frequently Asked Questions
What is vaping?
The definition of vaping is: "To inhale and exhale the vapour produced by an electronic cigarette or similar device". When you draw on the device, the battery heats up the liquid, which is then atomized into a vapor in which you inhale.
For adults who currently smoke, vaping can offer a healthier alternative to satisfy their nicotine habit and cravings. Breathing in the nearly odourless vapour gives them the nicotine hit they need.
Vaping is not proven to be 100% safe, but instead reduces the harm that tobacco causes. E-cigarettes and E-Juices do not contain carcinogens, unlike cigarettes, but do contain nicotine if you choose them to.
What are E-Cigarettes?
E-cigarettes have the look and feel of a traditional cigarette. They are battery operated inhalers, that contain a rechargeable battery, a cartomizer and an LED lights up at the end when you inhale. They come in disposable form or you can get ones that you can buy replaceable cartridges for.
What is a vaporizer?
A vaporizer consists of 4 components. A "mod" which is a tube that contains the battery. This can be charged by a USB, and powers the heating of the coils, which produces the vapour. A "clearomizer/atomizer" is what you put the E-Juice/E-Liquid in to. It attaches to the "mod" and uses a wick system to carry the juice to the coil. A "drip tip" attaches to the top of the clearomizer/atomizer, and this is where you inhale from.
What is E-Juice/E-Liquid?
The E-Juice/E-Liquid is put into the clearomizer/atomizer. It is heated up to produce a vapour, and is what gives you the taste and feel of smoking. It comes in a wide variety of flavours, including tobacco, menthol, fruits and desserts. Try them all to find out which flavour you like best. Flavours are hard to recommend, as it is down to personal preference. Some people try many different flavours to decide which is their favourite.
E-Juice/E-Liquid is mostly made up of 4 main ingredients. These are water, Propylene Glycol (PG) or Vegetable Glycerin (VG), (or sometimes a mixture of both), nicotine and flavouring. You can also get nicotine free E-Juice and E-Liquid. PG tends to give more of a throat hit and VG gives more vapour.
Apart from nicotine free E-Juice/E-Liquid Land Of The Vape offer 3 different strengths of nicotine E-Juice/E-Liquid. These are 8mg, 12mg and 18mg. The mg means the percentage of nicotine which is diluted into the mixture. For example 8mg means that there is 8 milligrams of nicotine in every 1ml of the juice/liquid. Please note that the more nicotine there is, the more throat hit you will receive. 18mg is high nicotine, 12mg is medium, and 8mg is low. If you are not sure which you would prefer, start in the middle.
E-Juice/E-Liquid should be kept at room temperature for the best flavour. Land Of The Vape also recommend that prior to using the E-Juice, remove the lid and leave it open for 24 hours, for an even better flavour. Please keep your E-Juices/E-Liquids out of reach from children and pets.

Please remember we are here to answer any queries or questions you may have.
How do I know if I need to clean my vaporizer?
1. The vaporizer isn't producing as much vapour as when it was new.
2. There is no vapour being produced at all.
3. You are finding it difficult to draw from the device.
4. There is a burnt/harsh taste when you use the vaporizer.
If you are experiencing any of these things, please clean the device before using again.
How long do coils last?
A coil lasts approximately 10-14 days, depending on how often you use the device. You can tell when it needs changing because there is a burnt/harsh taste, or it isn't producing enough vapour.
What does mAh mean when referring to batteries?
The higher the mAh, the longer you can vape between charges.
What does ohm mean?
An ohm is an electrical resistance. A lower number indicates a lower resistance, and therefore faster heating. The lower the ohms, generally produces a more intense vape, but not always. Standard ohms produce better flavour because it doesn't burn as hot, some people would disagree, it really is down to personal preference. Any ohm rating between 2.4-2.8 is standard and produces the most average vape.
Lower ohm coils create more heat, which can make more vapour, but it will drain your battery faster and you will use more juice/liquid.
Standard ohm coils create less heat, which can create less vapour. The battery and liquid will last longer than lower ohm coils.
