Learn how unhealthy tobacco is for you. Make the switch today!
From Lung.Org-
There are approximately 600 ingredients in cigarettes. When burned, they create more than 4,000 chemicals. At least 50 of these chemicals are known to cause cancer, and many are poisonous.

Many of these chemicals are also found in consumer products, but these products have warning labels. While the public is warned about the danger of the poisons in these products, there is no such warning for the toxins in tobacco smoke.

Here are a few of the chemicals in tobacco smoke, and other places they are found:

  • Acetone – found in nail polish remover
  • Acetic Acid –  an ingredient in hair dye
  • Ammonia – a common household cleaner
  • Arsenic – used in rat poison
  • Benzene – found in rubber cement
  • Butane – used in lighter fluid
  • Cadmium – active component in battery acid
  • Carbon Monoxide – released in car exhaust fumes
  • Formaldehyde – embalming fluid
  • Hexamine – found in barbecue lighter fluid
  • Lead – used in batteries
  • Naphthalene – an ingredient in moth balls
  • Methanol – a main component in rocket fuel
  • Tar – material for paving roads


Education on vapor devices


A true mech describes a device that houses NO circuitry, NO wires, and NO regulation. This means you have a tube to hold a battery, a button to fire the device (letting the voltage from the battery get to the atomizer), and a connection on top to put an atomizer on. When using Mech’s you have to be extremely careful to ensure absolute safety in use. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!
There are three common types of button placement on a Mech. They are as follows: Top Side Fire, Bottom Fire, & Bottom Side Fire

Ego Style

An ego style device, in it’s basic form, has an encapsulated battery; a button, and a connection on top. Sometimes that connection is basic ego cone threaded (the atomizers for this style have a “cone” at the bottom that goes OVER the threads), or 510 threaded (this type of connection is a male connection where the atomizer goes on the INSIDE of the threading on the device). These are usually the size of a sharpie.
A common addition to the ego style devices is Variable Voltage and or Variable Wattage.

Big Battery Mods

These consist of the kind of devices that house a rechargeable, replaceable battery. Some have Variable Voltage/Wattage; some have battery meters so you know the life of your battery. There are a multitude of options ranging from inexpensive to high end and everything in between. These are cylindrical in shape and have circuitry inside to regulate the voltage/wattage coming from the device, going to your atomizer. These usually have some kind of circuitry protection to prevent batteries from overheating and causing catastrophic thermal meltdown.

Box Mods

Box mods are the same concept as the Big Battery Mods. They don’t always have a replaceable battery (I.E. The MVP) though. It’s purely a form factor change; the insides are generally the same or similar.Some are mechanical and some have a chip to regulate power (Voltage or wattage).


A regulated device is one that uses circuitry to regulate the power coming from the battery, to your atomizer.
