Is It Worth Modifying Your Vaporizer?

Modified vaporizers are everywhere with many enthusiasts seeing them as the solution to low power and sub-par vapor. Users make different modifications but some brands also sell pre-modified devices. Is a modified vaporizer a worthwhile investment of your time and money? And what exactly constitutes a mod?

Types of Mod

Many different forms of modification exist and affect everything from the mechanics of the vaporizer to the battery and power produced. They range in complexity but some of the best mods can be bought off the shelf. They also require little technical knowledge. There are really 3 main mods and 2 different types of atomizer that are most associated with modified vapes. 

Mechanical Mods

As you might expect, mechanical mods are the most technical of modifications to a vaporizer but interestingly, they are also the most common. A mechanical mod is simply a casing that you put batteries into before attaching either an atomizer or regular clearomizer – which is where the eliquid is vaporized. Many enthusiasts build their own coils when using this type of modification (but this is very technical so one for the experienced users only!).

Mechanical mods are barebones and there is no complex circuitry located within. As a result of this, it means they are liable to overheating, chaining voltage and chaining wattage. In order to use mechanical mods you need to have a good understanding of electrical resistance and voltage. If used incorrectly they can be very dangerous. Despite this, many users say they prefer mechanical mods and find that they are less prone to breaking through everyday wear and tear.

One mechanical enthusiast has reported dropping their vape into water and it still working (don’t test this; water and electricity do not mix and safety is of paramount importance). Repairs are also easy because there are no real components to break.

What’s more, using a mechanical mod makes sub-ohm vaping much easier because low resistant tanks are more likely to work. But these benefits all come at the expense of safety. Mechanical mods are only advisable for real enthusiasts who are able to regularly check the functionality of their setup.

Variable Voltage

There are two variable power measurements (voltage and wattage) that mods focus on, both aim for similar goals but achieve them in different ways. Variable voltage allows you to change the current which interacts with the resistance of your atomizer to create heat. So turning the voltage up or down will affect the temperature – which provides a completely different vaping experience.

Variable Wattage

Whilst achieving similar results to variable voltage this mod goes about it in an entirely different way. As with variable voltage the volts and ohms (resistance) work together to create the final wattage or temperature. If you have an atomizer that has a resistance of 2.8Ω then the voltage can be adjusted to find the perfect vapor. However, if you change atomizers you may have a different level of resistance and you preferred voltage will then produce a different quality vapor. With a variable wattage mod, you set the preferred watts as opposed to volts and the vape adjusts to new atomizer resistance. This makes it an easy mod for most users to get to grips with. They’re popular because they consistently produce the type of vapor the user enjoys.

Atomizers For Mods

There are two main types of atomizers for modified vaporizers and the choice really depends on how you like to vape. Both are rebuildable and usually require you to build a coil using either silica wick, ekowool wick, cotton wick or kanthal wire. Building coils is a case of practice makes perfect and the more you do it, the better the vapor will become.

Rebuildable Atomizer (RBA)

An RBA is a customizable version of a standard atomizer. You will need to build a coil. But the main advantage of this is the size of the tank. Most will hold 4-5ml of eliquid whereas an off-the-shelf clearomizer will only hold 1.5-2.0ml. This means you can vape for longer without having to refill.

Rebuildable Dipping Atomizer (RDA)

Whilst still needing to be built in a similar way to an RBA – the RDA is very different. There is no tank attached whatsoever. Users must place e-liquid onto the wick each time they wish to vape. The size of the build affects the number of drips it can hold but generally it will only last 5-10 puffs. With this not only do you not have to worry about tanks leaking, you can also change flavor exceptionally easily. Which is great if you’re testing a variety of flavors to see what suits you or if you want different flavors and strengths throughout the day.

These mods will create a much more personal experience that reflects what the user enjoys. But they are certainly not for beginners and require some technical knowledge.

What is E-Juice?

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.
