Vaping apps and calculators

A Guide To Vaping Apps and Calculators

Smartphone apps are everywhere. Most major retailers have them, they tell you the news and provide a source of entertainment, but they are also important tools. There are a number of vaping apps and calculators that are incredible tools any e-cigarette aficionado will need. Vaping apps cover a wide range of utilities that you wouldn’t necessarily know you’ll need until you’ve tried them.

There are so many different apps that are relevant to vapers, but they generally come under three categories. Namely, savings calculators/quitting tools, Ohm’s law/coil builders and apps that do a bit of everything. We will stick with these distinctions in order to help you find the ones most relevant for you. These are just some of the many apps available that will make a vapers life even easier.

Savings Apps and Quitting Tools

These are the most straightforward tools and are there to help you keep track of how many cigarettes you’ve avoided and the amount of money saved.

E-Cig Diary (Android

This simple android only app covers everything you need from a savings calculator. It counts the number of days you have gone smoke-free and using this tells you how many cigarettes you’ve avoided. It also calculates your total saving by missing them out (although this is only available in Euros at the moment). There are some other features such as estimating battery life and an Ohm’s la calculator. But as this is a free app, you will need to click on some add-ons to unlock these features.

Vape (Android

A much more user friendly version of the E-cig diary. As well as all the usual features, this app will also update you on how your body is changing thanks to quitting smoking. So it will tell you when your oxygen levels have returned to normal or when your lung capacity has improved. This app also has achievements, which may sound corny, but it is a great way to stay on track and will encourage you to stay smoke free. 

QuitNow! (iOS and Android)

With many of the same features as Vape, this will help to ensure you progress to become smoke free. However, the user interface is much more appealing. There is also a community function where you can get support and tips from other users. This comes in really handy when you have a question you can’t find the answer to or simply need a bit of support. The app is available on both iOS and Android.

Smoke Free (iOS and Android

This takes a more evidence based approach to quitting. It will give you little tips to get you through both cravings and the process of quitting. The developers are also collecting anonymous data in order to find the best way to quit and improve the tips they provide.

Vaping Calculators

For more experienced vapers, a calculator is essential. Ohm’s law, while not overly complicated, is a pain to work out. These vaping apps are also good for calculating battery time and coil building.

Ohm’s Law (iOS

This iOS app is the most straightforward Ohm’s law calculator around. You simply enter any two values and it will calculate the others. This can be voltage, wattage, resistance or current. This app is completely free and a must for anyone who regularly calculates Ohm’s law.

MicroCoil Pro (iOS and Android

Any vaper who builds their own coils needs this app. Simply fill in the details about the coil you hope to build and it will tell you the resistance. All it needs to know are the number of wraps, coil diameter, material and set up. The app will also calculate wattage and current if you add the voltage. There are loads of other features too; you can share coils with the app community and get information about battery life. It also tells you how to build a coil based on the heat coefficient. It may cost a few bucks but you won’t need any other calculator.

Vapers Toolbox (Android

It may not be the best looking app, but it works exactly how you would expect. Simply enter details about the coil you hope to build and it will tell you how much wire you need to cut. You can also use it to calculate the number of wraps you need. There is also an Ohm’s law calculator built in to the app. It may only be on Android but it is completely free and easy to use.

Multipurpose Vape Calculators 

You may not want lots of vaping apps which is where having one app that can do everything comes in really handy.

VaporCalc (Android

This app literally does everything. You can calculate coils and ohm’s law. It also has a feature that lets you design your own e-liquid. It doesn’t look very attractive and is only on Android, but it is useful and completely free.

Sweet Spot (Android

Not only does this have all calculation features you could possibly need, but it also includes a nicotine counter which will compare your intake as a smoker and a vaper. There is also a savings tracker, cigarette counter and smoke free days’ counter. The interface is by far and away the simplest, with the only real drawback being its age (2013) which means sometimes it doesn’t recognize higher voltages.

This is just a small selection of the hundreds of vaping apps that are available on the market. Do you have a favorite? Share it with us in the comments and on our social media pages.

What is Naturally Extracted Tobacco E-Liquid?

E-juice, also known as e-liquid or vaping liquid, is the liquid that’s placed in the vaping device and subsequently atomized into vapor. When you go to buy e-juice, you’ll notice it contains a mix of several ingredients. These typically include vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG), some type of flavoring, and nicotine.

VG and PG form the base of the e-liquid. VG is a component used in food and personal care products; its role in e-liquid is to create a thick, dense vapor. PG is another popular solvent used in a variety of everyday items. It carries the e-liquid flavor, provides the “throat hit,” and enhances the vaping liquid’s ability to soak into wicks or cartomizer materials.

Nicotine is an optional ingredient, often available in different levels. E-juice also contains some type of flavoring.

Black Note leads the pack of tobacco vaping liquid by using only natural flavoring – extract from real tobacco leaves to produce real tobacco taste. When you go to buy e-juice from other companies, you may find any number of chemicals used to create synthetic flavors that include fake strawberry, manufactured vanilla, and even man-made tobacco flavors.

If your aim when you buy e-liquid is to experience the subtle nuances, genuine flair and authentic taste of real tobacco, then you’ll be on the mark if you buy e-juice from the Black Note lineup.

Best E-Juice

When you’re going to buy e-liquid, it’s only natural you’ll want the best e-liquid. But what, exactly, does it “best e-juice” mean? We’ll tell you.

For starters, you’ll want an e-juice that doesn’t contain all kinds of strange chemicals and concoctions that you can’t even pronounce. True, even the best e-liquid will contain vegetable glycerin (VG) and proplene glycol (PG), which serve as the base of e-juice, but you don’t necessarily need a host of other chemical compounds.

The best e-juice will stick to natural ingredients, like real tobacco extract, rather than rely on synthetic flavorings, colorings and other additives. Diacetyl is one of those synthetic ingredients that has gotten a pretty bad rap, although its use is not all that uncommon for producing sweet e juice flavors.

Definitely read the ingredient list before you buy e-juice to ensure you recognize what’s on it. Better yet, see if the e-juice company offers a lab report to confirm what’s actually inside the e-liquid.

In addition to having as few chemical ingredients as possible, the best e-juice will have an amazing taste. For those who enjoy authenticity over imitation, the most amazing taste is the most natural taste, especially when it comes to tobacco. Since Black Note uses real extract from tobacco leaves, we not only avoid all those weird chemical flavorings, but we also produce the most authentic experience: tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like tobacco.

Best E-Liquid on the Market

Anyone looking for the best e-liquid on the market need look no further than Black Note. Black Note tobacco vaping liquid ranks as the best e-juice across the board in every category, starting with the taste.

Black Note’s main claim to fame is producing a tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like real tobacco. That because we use real tobacco extract, not chemicals, to create the best e-juice tobacco flavor. Using extract from real tobacco leaves retains tobacco’s nuances and flavor notes, giving you the most authentic and multi-faceted tobacco experience.

In addition to being the best e-juice for tobacco taste, Black Note also has the best e-liquid manufacturing process. We spent years researching and testing various production methods, and finally landed on one that we believe is absolutely perfect.

It starts with growing carefully selected tobacco seeds, followed by an equally precise of steps that include an extensive natural extraction process. Even our bottling and packaging is done with the utmost care, using recycled and recyclable packaging materials to ensure our products are as earth-friendly as they are vapor-friendly.

One more category where Black Note ranks as the best e-liquid is with the value. Every order comes with free domestic shipping, one-to-three day domestic shipping guarantee, and a 90-day, money-back satisfaction guarantee. If you’re not happy for any reason, or don’t agree we’re the best e-juice on the market, send it back on us and we’ll refund your money.

Vape Juice Ingredients

Vape juice ingredients can be pretty straightforward – or not. At the very least, most vape juice contains propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), and some type of flavoring. Nicotine has largely become an optional ingredient that can be included at varying levels or left out altogether.

Vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) are usually the two main ingredients that make up the base of most vape juice.

VG is a plant-based substance with the ability to produce a dense, thick vapor. PG is an additive found in many food items and certain medicines. It carries the flavoring, provides the “throat hit” and enhances the vape juice’s ability to soak into the wicking materials.

Nicotine levels can vary, as can ingredients that make up the flavorings. The components that make up vape juice flavoring are where ingredients can get rather complicated.

Vape juice that relies on artificial flavorings can contain any number of extraneous chemicals and other additives, whatever it takes to recreate the flavor the ecig juice is going for.

Black Note uses only natural flavorings: extract from real tobacco leaves. That keeps our ingredient list incredibly simple, backed by a lab report to prove it. You won’t find any strange chemical concoctions used to produce our tobacco flavor, just real tobacco extract that delivers a real tobacco experience.

What is the Best Flavor for Ecig Juice?

From strawberry shortcake to banana rum, ecig juice comes in tons of flavors. While folks can debate and discuss all the fruity, sweet or food-like flavors all day long, the best flavor for e-cig liquid is straight-up tobacco.

Why? Vaping was originally created as an alternative for traditional cigarettes, mainly for those who enjoy the taste of tobacco. And when you can find an e-cig liquid that is able to recreate tobacco’s full-bodied yet delicate flavor notes and nuances, but without the harmful chemicals found in cigarettes, then you’ve found the best ecig juice.

Recreating tobacco’s complex flavor isn’t easy, especially when it’s attempted with artificial ingredients. That’s why Black Note sticks to the real thing, extracting the essence of real tobacco leaves to flavor our vaping liquid. Not only does this avoid the harmful chemicals in cigarettes, but it also eliminates the flavoring chemicals found in many ecig juices. The end result is real tobacco taste, an authentic tobacco experience and the best flavor for ecig juice you can find.

Notice also we said the best e-cig flavor was straight-up tobacco, not plain old tobacco. Black Note’s real tobacco vaping liquid happens to come in a variety of different blends, from the light and airy to the peppery and robust. Not all tobacco is created equal, and different blends capture the specialized subtleties that make each tobacco unique.

Best Sweet Tobacco E-Juice

When it comes to sweet tobacco e-juice, your options can be broken down into two categories.

The first category contains tobacco e-juice that overlays the tobacco flavor with artificial chocolate, caramel, vanilla, fruity or other dessert-like flavorings. We wouldn’t classify any such flavors as the best tobacco e liquid, simply because they typically use chemicals and other artificial ingredients to create the tobacco taste, the sweet taste, or both.

The second category of sweet tobacco e-juice is where you’ll find the best tobacco e-liquid, sweet or otherwise. This category contains vaping liquid created using only natural flavorings, which is exactly where Black Note fits in. Instead of concocting flavors using synthetic ingredients, Black Note uses an extensive extraction process that slowly and deliberately extracts the tobacco essence from real tobacco leaves.

The result is the best tobacco e-juice: tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like real tobacco. And if you’re going for the best sweet tobacco e liquid, we have a few tobacco blends that offer varying levels of sweetness.

Prelude is our sweetest tobacco e-liquid, containing golden Virginia tobacco. Made from fire-cured dark Virginia tobacco, Sonata is our Cavendish blend with a mildly sweet and nutty flavor. Solo is our menthol blend, giving you a semi-sweet minty taste created from natural menthol crystals extract from dried mint leaves.

For the best tobacco e-liquid that’s naturally sweet and remarkably delicious, Black Note is at your service.
