How To Clean Your Vape Tank and Mod

Finding the Best Vape Starter Kit for Beginners

Vaping starter kits have been on the rise lately, with various vape subscription boxes offering different packages for different vape enthusiasts from beginners to pros.

Vaping and it benefits have been hitting the newsstands constantly recently. Although many were suspicious as vaping first began to become popular, it’s now been proven that vaping can massively help smokers to quit.

This year’s NHS Stoptober campaign even encouraged smokers to try vaping and increase their chances of quitting. Vaping still gives smokers a hit of nicotine but in a lower and less harmful dose – which they can slowly decrease by choosing different strengths of nicotine e-liquids and can inhale without the harmful tar of cigarettes.

Stoptober claimed that vaping is safer than smoking cigarettes (95% safer), increasing health and life expectancy as well as being cheaper and less of a fire hazard, and even removes the stale smoke smell of cigarettes …

sub ohm tanks

Once you get into vaping more, you realize there are some highly technical things at work that go beyond just pushing a button. It might even seem a little overwhelming at first but the idea of sub-ohm vaping is not as highly technical as it sounds.

The Mech Mod Explained

Take a battery, a metal tube with some holes in the bottom for venting, an atomizer connection piece, and a firing switch to complete the electrical circuit and you have yourself a Mech mod. No circuit boards – no fancy LCD screen- and no regulations help put mech mods in a category all their own. The handoff from this basic setup – massive vapor output – to put it lightly.

These mods are the simplest electrical current in any device used for vaping.  With just a battery in a tube and a firing switch, the mech mod is the Amish version of vaping due to its simplicity. With no built-in protection inside – it is highly recommended only the most experienced vapers use or work with this style of ecig. Common sense and some background/history in working with electricity are also encouraged.

One significant aspect that mech mods do …
