A smoking alternative is any tobacco product that's objective is to reduce harm or the risk of any tobacco related disease/illness. Vaping is an excellent alternative to smoking as it enables smokers/ex-smokers to simulate the sensation with vapour.
Smoking sensation describes the experience a smoker/ex-smoker is able to simulate whilst vaping. In order to simulate a smoking sensation, smokers/ex-smokers can use Mouth-to-Lung devices with our Riot S:ALT flavours.
Shortfills are large bottles of e-liquid which contain no nicotine. They are usually found as 50ml of e-liquid contained in a 60ml bottle, hence the name shortfill. A 10ml gap is left at the top of the bottle to give enough space to add an unflavoured 18mg nicotine shot.
Steeping is the process where flavours in your e-liquid settle enhance and strengthen. Usually, this means leaving the vape juice to rest for a period of time.
It is recommended that flavours steep for at least two-weeks, but some vapers prefer to steep flavours for months before vaping them.
Squonk mods are bottom-feeding and carry e-liquid supply inside the mod allowing direct feed of e-liquid to the atomiser. The box mod has a small opening called a squonk hole that is squeezed to deliver a small amount of e-liquid to the atomiser and saturate the wick.
Sub-ohm refers to the resistance of the coil being below 1 ohm. Sometimes we will call sub-ohm vaping direct-to-lung. Sub-ohm devices are designed to produce large clouds of vapour. The wattage setting required for sub-ohm coils vary greatly. Depending on the coil and resistance, they can work from 30-120W+. We would say the average coil would require 40-70W.
A substance used to sweeten food or drink, an alternative to sugar. In e-liquids, sucralose is most commonly used. However, you will find other alternatives used such as stevia, neotame, xylitol and ace k. Sweeteners are commonly 10-100 times stronger than sugar.
