4 Reasons To Get A Vape Pen


So you’ve finally decided to give vaping a try. Good for you!

You are excited about ditching smoking, a habit you have been trying to overcome for years.

It’s now time for you to buy your first vape mod.

Only problem is, most of these new mods you see online are too big for your liking.

Vape Pens, Never E-Cigarettes or “Cigalikes”

One advice I will always give vapers who are looking into buying an e-cigarette because it looks and feels like an actual cigarette is this: DON’T!

E-cigarettes or cigalikes honestly are a waste of money.

The battery life on these things are crap. Don’t buy them unless you don’t mind carrying a USB charger along with you.

Also, most of these e-cigarette are Big Tobacco owned, so why support something you are trying to get away from?

Don’t Miss out on all those delicious e-juice flavors

The flavors for e-cigarettes are very limited since it uses cartridges and not tanks, which sucks because you’ll be totally missing out.

If you’re a newbie vaper looking for your first vape, or a seasoned vaper who’s looking to tone things down, here are 4 reasons you might want to buy a vape pen.

1.) You are a smoker trying to quit

I get it, you want something a little more discreet or something similar to a cigarette, and the thought of vaping on these big mods is plain awkward.

A vape pen is what you need in this case. Sure, its still bigger than an actual cigarette, but the battery and features it has is enough for you to get a grasp on your new habit.

It uses a tank so you can start trying those yummy flavors that everyone’s been buzzing all over the internet about.

2.) You like to vape on the go

You want a unit you can put away easily. If you’re like me, you hate bulky pockets.

A vape pen fits comfortably in your pant or shirt pocket. This also means you’ll have a greater chance of not losing it somewhere.

3.) You don’t chain vape

If you’re the type who vapes once every 15 minutes, then a vape pen will definitely get you through the day.

You won’t be needing all that extra battery power that’s found in bigger devices especially if you don’t vape that much.

4.) You like to keep your vaping discreet or you hate cloud chasing

If you like to vape in public (or in secret) and you want a device that doesn’t scream “hey I’m a vaper!” to everyone, then go with a vape pen.

Some of the tanks on these vape pens were made to keep your vaping on the down low by not putting out a ridiculous amount of vapor.

Can’t go wrong with a vape pen

Nothing beats the sleek and compact design of a vape pen. It’s portable, so you won’t have problems keeping it on you at all times.

Vape pens are great devices for both newbies and veterans, it’s really all you need to start and enjoy vaping!

 

OBS Engine Sub & Engine Sub Mini: Best Cloud Chasing Tank of 2017?


I did a review of the OBS Engine Tank last year and I was completely blown away by it. It had to be one of my favorite tanks of 2016.

From the performance to the construction, everything about the OBS Engine was top notch. It was a cloud chasing, non-heating tank that had one of the smoothest draws I’ve ever experienced from a sub-ohm tank.

Apparently a lot of other vape reviewers felt the same way.

This is why I got excited when I was contacted by Heaven Gifts to review the 2017 versions which are the Engine Sub and Engine Sub Mini.


OBS Engine Sub and Engine Sub Mini Review

The two tanks are identical to each other and uses the same coil head, a disposable 0.3 ohm atomizer which is HUGE!

The disposable atomizers is what makes it different from the older Engine tank, which used a 2 post dual/quad rebuildable coil deck.

The only differences between the Engine Sub and Engine Sub Mini are the diameter and juice capacity: the Engine Sub has a 25 mm diameter and holds 5 ml of juice, while the Mini version is 23 mm in diameter and has a 3.5 ml capacity. The height of the 2 tanks is the same at 54.5 mm.

What’s in the Box?

Since it uses disposable coils, you won’t be needing any fancy tools or screws with this tank. It comes with an extra stock coil which is also at 0.3 ohms, an extra glass tank, extra o-rings and a user manual.

I’m glad OBS went the disposable atomizer route since I personally am getting a little tired of rebuildable atomizers. These new disposable coils that are coming out perform quite well when it comes to vapor and flavor production. It also saves me time and effort compared to using an RTA.

As for the construction of the tank, top grade as usual. I noticed the base of these new Engine Sub tanks are a lot beefier than the base on the previous OBS Engine tank.

OBS did a great job with sticking to what works. I love how the airflow holes are on top, and adjusting them are easy. Filling this tank with e-juice is a breeze thanks to the lift up sleeve which is located right under the air holes.

Because of the airflow holes and juice hole being located on top, this tank is a great purchase for vapers who are looking for a true leak-proof tank.

STRONG POINTS OF THE OBS ENGINE SUB AND engine SUB MINI

Aside from it being easy to use and leak-proof, the best thing about the Engine Sub is the vapor production. This tank really puts out big, dense clouds!

This tank is meant for vapers who like to vape at high wattage and enjoy that warm, dense vape.

Any cons?

As much as I loved the vapor production of this tank, I would have to say the biggest disappointment for me was the the flavor, especially for the Engine Sub tank.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad tasting vape at all. The only problem is the break-in period for the coil on the Engine Sub takes a little while, however it doesn’t take as long for the Mini version.

I don’t know if I didn’t saturate the coils enough, but I didn’t get that clean e-juice taste until after a few hits.

For a tank that produces so much vapor, I was expecting the flavor to be just as intense. The flavor just doesn’t match the vapor production.

Another thing is the draw. Like I said earlier, the previous OBS Engine tank had one of the smoothest draws I’ve ever experienced. These newer versions weren’t as smooth in my opinion.

Who is this tank for?

The OBS Engine Sub and Engine Sub Mini tanks are definitely for the cloud chasers, and since its so easy to use, I would even recommend them to the newbie vapors as an entry-level cloud chasing tank.

A big thank you to Joanna of Heavens Gifts for offering me these great tanks to review, and if the Engine Sub tank is something you plan on buying, now would be a great time because Heaven Gifts is providing you with a 15% discount store wide off your purchase when you click on the link below and use the promo code AHG15.

 

4 Ways Vaping Helps You With Losing Weight


People take up vaping for the most part to get over their addiction of smoking. Vaping is a great way to give you that feeling of “smoking” minus all the nasty carcinogens and chemicals that are associated with cigarettes.

Vaping has a very high success rate when it comes to quitting smoking which is why more and more smokers are starting to use vaping to eliminate their bad habit.

However, there are also a group of people who are picking up vaping for a different reason.

These people are using vaping to overcome another addiction which is their junk food cravings.

I’ve seen people all over the internet, from forums to YouTube videos, people who don’t smoke at all that are using vaping to aid them in taking less calories.

Why Some People Are Using Vaping To Lose Weight

One story I came across: vaping turned on a light bulb in this girl’s head when she found out there were different candy and dessert flavors available in e-juice form.

She saw these flavors as an opportunity for her to keep her cravings in check. And since she doesn’t smoke, she only takes the vapor in her mouth and doesn’t inhale into her lungs, sort of like hookah. This gives her taste buds that flavor satisfaction they are craving. She’s getting all the flavor of her favorite bad foods minus the calories!

 It’s actually a good idea

As a vaper who used vaping to overcome smoking, and a person who has been vaping for some time now, I can attest that vaping definitely helps in curbing cravings.

If you are looking into vaping to help you lose weight, but are a little suspicious of what’s in e-liquid, let me clear this for you. Regardless of what you’ve heard, e-juice consists of Vegetable Glycerin, Propylene Glycol which both are found in food grade products, along with flavoring and nicotine.

So for those of you who are still worried about getting poisoned by vaping, don’t fall for that lie, you have nothing to worry about in regards to that.


4 Ways Vaping Helps You With Losing weight

So here are 4 ways vaping helps in losing weight. The idea here is vaping prevents you from picking up that plate of extra creamy chocolate mousse or downing one whole bag of candy by letting you taste it (through vaping) without having to eat it and consuming all those calories.

1. ) It can kill junk food cravings

Contrary to what you’ve been hearing on the news that candy and dessert flavored e-juice are a way to entice teens into vaping, these flavors are enjoyed by adult vapers. Also, the reason why these flavors are very popular in the vaping community is because consumers have a very high demand for it.

When I was smoking, the only flavors I could choose from were tobacco or menthol. The wide variety of flavors vaping has to offer to me puts vaping way over smoking as a much more enjoyable experience.

From freshly baked glazed donuts to ice cream cake, I can savor the flavors of these delicious treats without having to worry about packing on some weight.

You could use this to your advantage if you are struggling with high calorie food cravings. Get a good quality vaping device, a tank, and some e-juice of your favorite flavor online and enjoy the taste of your favorite food without adding pounds.

2.) Nicotine is an appetite suppressant

It’s well-known that nicotine helps in preventing you from over eating by suppressing your appetite.

And no, nicotine isn’t some evil chemical that is extracted from tobacco. In fact, nicotine can be found in food like tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, and cauliflowers.

Here’s a shocker you probably didn’t know: nicotine is not addictive. There are actually some benefits you can get from nicotine intake which I discussed in this post : Beliefs about nicotine that turned out to be false.

E-juice comes in different levels of nicotine when you buy it. These are most commonly: 3 mg, 6 mg, and 12 mg. Some vendors offer amounts as low as 1.5 mg, and some as high as 24 mg.

If you still prefer to avoid nicotine, no problem, you aren’t alone. There are many smokers-turned-vapers who have this stigma with nicotine. This is why e-juice vendors also offer zero nicotine options with their products.

3.) E-Juice comes in all sorts of flavors

A survey was done before that showed fruit flavors were the most popular among vapers, tobacco was second and dessert/bakery flavors came in at third. This survey was done a couple of years ago, and the number of available flavors has accumulated greatly since this survey was done.

From famous candies we’ve enjoyed growing up like Airheads and fruit roll-ups, to sweet rich desserts like red velvet cake and creme brulee, or even breakfast food like Fruit Loops cereal and syrupy buttermilk pancakes, 9 times out of 10 there is an e-juice equivalent to that flavor.

Now this doesn’t apply to other high calorie foods like pizza or burgers because there aren’t really any e-juice flavors out in the market since there isn’t really a demand for them.

4.) It increases your water intake

If you vape moderately to heavy, you’ll notice that your mouth gets dry after a while. Known as “vaper’s tongue,” I wrote a post about how to deal with this problem in the past, and one way to get rid of vaper’s tongue is by drinking more water.

Since vaping dries out your mouth, you are going to have to drink more water to soothe your dry mouth which in turn will increase your water intake. And we all know what kind of benefits come with drinking more water, especially when it comes to losing weight and flushing your body of toxins.

I mean you could use other types of beverages to water your mouth, but I know by experience that water is the best drink to have when you are vaping because it doesn’t get in the way of the e-juice flavor you are vaping on. Coffee is probably the second best drink to have when vaping for me, especially when your are vaping on dessert/bakery flavored e-liquid.


And if you are a non-smoker who just wants to get the “taste” of vaping, you can always and do a Bill Clinton and not inhale. It’s whatever works best for you!

Vaping is a great way to help you in substituting your sweet tooth. I’m glad some people are finding other positive uses for vaping aside from quitting smoking.
