What is The Most Indestructible Vape Setup?
If you get an RDA without a Glass Window / a Small one you can literally unscrew it and chuck it across a parking lot and 99% of the time they are COMPLETELY FINE! (Just clean out the dirt, or grime and replace/rebuild the coil… or… if you do want to vape dirt… Go ahead? Eww.)
The only thing that can usually break on an RDA is the actual 510 pin, and many of them can be adjusted/replaced.
If you rather the convenience of a Tank, the least amount of glass the BETTER! (Go for low capacity, mostly metal designed Tanks and RDTA’s.) It also has the benefit if you do break it, you won’t lose a ton of juice on the concrete.
And for Devices, there is the GeekVape Aegis Legend 200W.
The Aegis Legend is the most durable device on the market, and it’d take running it over with a forklift to break it. Your battery might get damaged, but your device will survive!

Is Vaping Really Safer Than Smoking?
At the moment we have a few well-known studies including; One Air Quality Study was done by the U.S Government which found most vape shops air pollution levels at all times were well below workspace air quality limits and that there may be second-hand exposure to nicotine but, there are MUCH fewer toxins or combustion byproducts in second-hand or first-hand vapour!
Quote: “Our data indicate that exposure of bystanders to the chemicals in the exhaled e-cigarette aerosol, at the levels measured within our study, are below current regulatory standards that are used for workplaces or general indoor air quality. This finding supports the conclusions of other researchers that have stated there is no apparent risk to bystanders from exhaled e-cigarette aerosols.”
In comparison, a single Cigarette smoked in a closed room is MUCH over the U.S workspace air quality standards. This study shows even over time with multiple vapers in a room that it never even gets close to going over. With the study in mind, and the air quality standards in mind it brings up a question:
Why are E-Cigs being regulated the same way as Traditional Cigarettes? It’s this writer’s personal opinion that Big Tobacco and the acting Government bodies are afraid of changing and if they do, it’s not in the public’s best interest of health but profit. Just take a gander at their Advertising Expenditure. Look at this sheet from the NSRA.
But hey, lots of things are like that and we ARE NOT the tin-foil hat wearing type. But, back on the topic of if Vaping is really safer than Smoking:
There are also other studies showing that E-Cigs usually deliver less nicotine than traditional cigarettes, even in very high nicotine MG concentrations because the nicotine in vaporizers are perhaps taken slower due to the lack of reconstituted tobacco and the other chemicals used to make it that are in traditional cigarettes that give the user extra “Zip.” That allows the nicotine to cross the blood-brain barrier in ways natural recurring nicotine could never do.
Vaporizing doesn’t produce even in comparison the combustive substances a cigarette does and mostly produces large water particles much like steam and produces little to no tar with PROPER COIL CHANGING AND REBUILDING!
And the E-Juice that is used usually only contains FOUR things: Vegetable Glycerin (VG), Propylene Glycol (PG), Food Grade Flavouring and Regular Liquid Nicotine/or/Salt Nicotine.
In Comparison to the thousands of different ingredients in Reconstituted Tobacco that is treated with Benzene, Formaldehyde and other Toxic Substances to make it pleasant to smoke. (It’s literally so bad they have to treat it or you’de vomit immediately. That’s how bad conventional cigarettes are for you!)
PG or Propylene Glycol: has been used since the 1950s in the air systems at hospitals as it has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties with no known side-effects ever being seen other than in a very, very few 1/10 of the people who have Eczema of whom it may act as a mild irritant, it’s been widely documented to be safe for consumption and is used in Cosmetic Products, Food Products, Natural Vitamins and a lot of products you come in contact with every day. (Look at any makeup product.)
VG or Vegetable Glycerin: Has been used for a very, very long time. When vaporized it turns to simple sugars and produces much of the water vapour and is the ingredient that gives the “Cloud” to the vapour, its thick and sticky, VG is used in all kinds of Cosmetic Products and many Food Products, it’s just Vegetable Fats in a nutshell. You’ve eaten and drank it thousands of times in your life.
Flavourings: For E-Liquids and E-Juices are all Food-Grade safe and you find them used in all manners of food and products in your daily life, they are usually non-GMO, vegan and vegetarian, gluten safe although some Dessert Flavours and Ice Cream / Milk flavours may contain gluten as they are naturally derived and created in facilities that create other gluten-containing products.
Also, nut-based/dessert flavourings MAY CONTAIN NUTS! If you have an allergy, stick to Plain Jane or a simple, single flavouring e-juice.
Nicotine: Used in E-liquids and E-juices for E-Cigarettes & Vaporizers come in two forms, but the most common being Liquid which most Juice is, it’s totally sterile and synthetic that is an almost exact duplicate of TRUE natural nicotine (Not the same kind that is in Cigarettes because of their chemical treatments!)
This nicotine is taken slower into the body (Even Salt Nicotine crosses your brain slower.) and in some research has shown may only be as constricting on blood vessels as Caffeine. There is another form in Salt Nicotine and this is much the same thing but it has a quicker absorbing rate than Liquid and is for low-power / Cigarette like Vaporizers.
When you Vape Properly, Maintain your Vaporizer and when in doubt get professional help at your Local EZ-Vape! Vaporizing perhaps is indeed a better alternative for you to help you quit, cut down and control your Nicotine intake! You can go to our Battery Safety and Vape 101 Page for detailed information on how vaporizers work. And for some reminders on why you should make the switch checkout the “Why Vape?” Page.
We aren’t here to condemn people for smoking. We’re all ex-smokers. I myself the writer used to smoke 2 – 3 packs of 100 size a day and couldn’t run up a hill if i tried to.
Adults may choose to do whatever they wish to and what they put in their bodies. We just want you to know there might be a better alternative. And vaporizers are perhaps the best harm-reduction method that is similar to smoking, so perhaps it’s the best alternative!
BUT That is for YOU to decide.
What is Diacetyl/Does E-Juice Contain it? (The Popcorn Lung Hysteria)
A common question due to media wildfire based on a study from a few years ago that states there is Diacetyl in E-Juice and Vaping could cause an illness known as “Popcorn Lung.” This is completely false (That vaping causes Popcorn Lung worse than cigarettes that contain literally 750 times if not more Diacetyl on average than vaping.)
Vaping ENTIRE BOTTLES contains many hundreds of times less Diacetyl than even a single cigarette.
And the only cases of Popcorn Lung are completely unrelated to Vaping AND EVEN SMOKING!
But that Chemical Plant workers and people who worked in Popcorn Facilities with low health standards where the facility exposed their workers to quite literally trillions if not more times of exposure to Diacetyl over a span of MONTHS AND YEARS.
There has not been one scientifically or medically proven case, or even correlative case of Vaping causing popcorn lung, and Diacetyl is a NATURAL BYPRODUCT of FERMENTATION! It’s the thing that makes Butter taste like Butter and is put in ALL KINDS of food and drink you enjoy on a daily basis… And if you drink Alcohol? Fermentation = Diacetyl!!!
Yes, inhalation of MASSIVE quantities can cause health complications. That is a fact, but it’s also a fact that Cigarettes contain 750+ times MORE OF IT! (Funny they omitted that from the study before the media caught wind of it, huh?)
For a more detailed breakdown with references please read this detailed Blog Post from a non-associative of EZ-Vape: http://tobaccoanalysis.blogspot.ca/2015/12/new-study-finds-that-average-diacetyl.html (Full Credits to Michael Siegel the writer.)
You can find hundreds of people who have reviewed the studies, and you will not find a single study even proving that the TINY amount of Diacetyl EVEN IN CIGARETTES causes popcorn lung… at 750+ Times more exposure over vaping.
We’re here to help you make an informed decision into what and how you ingest nicotine and use a likely healthier alternative.
We are concerned for the public that there is disinformation out there being spread. This post inspired the “Advanced Customer Questions” section of the FAQ that will be a place for such questions. Thanks to Don Arscott!
as Michael Siegel wrote “It is disingenuous and actually damaging to the public’s health to spread the message that vaping causes fatal lung disease or even that it appears to increase the risk for popcorn lung. And it is especially disingenuous and damaging to send these messages to the public without telling us that smoking produces exposure to diacetyl that is on average about 750 times higher than vaping.”
Again, do your own research. Form your own opinion. Do NOT take us at our word if you feel hesitant, do some research! If you don’t like Michael’s Blog, you will find HUNDREDS on the topic. Read the study yourself: https://ehp.niehs.nih.gov/15-10185/
So, Does E-Juice Contain Diacetyl? Yes, but mostly only dessert flavours. 750 if not more times less than convention cigarettes in the day to day use and there hasn’t been a single proper case of even convention cigarettes causing Popcorn Lung. You probably had butter, cheese or an alcoholic beverage some point this week, a drink at the store with it in it.
Any candy you ever ate… It likely has THOUSANDS of times more Diacetyl you ingest, inhale and etc when eating or drinking it.
