StopDropVape's Most Frequently Asked Questions
With Conduction vaporization, your blend is placed in direct contact with the heating source. On the other hand, Convection vaporization occurs when hot air passes over the blend, but never actually touches the heating element/source.
A vaporizer is a device used to release the active ingredients of your blends or oils/concentrates without combustion. This is achieved through either Conduction or Convection.
Instead of burning the material, your product is heated at a much lower temperature. This allows one to receive all of the benefits that blends have to offer without the carcinogens and other nasty by-products that are released during combustion (smoking).
Yes. Turning up the heating temperature will typically produce more noticeable and bigger clouds of vapor.
Most pen vaporizers have a 5-click lock mechanism. Simply click the button 5 times rapidly and it should turn on.

There is a slight smell that is released upon exhaling, but it’s very mild when compared to smoking.
Smoking is completely different from vaping. Smoking requires combustion. When you smoke, you are inhaling gases produced by the combustion of tobacco leaves, combined with thousands of other harmful chemicals. Vaping is inhaling vapor that is produced by heating up the e-juice.
Almost everyone knows that cigarettes contain thousands of harmful, carcinogenic chemicals. Here is a short list of a few of them:
Acetone – found in nail polish remover
Ammonia – a common household cleaner
Arsenic – used in rat poison
Formaldehyde – found in fluid used to embalm corpses
Lead – used in batteries
Tar – found in material used for paving roads
The e-juice, however, contains 2 chemicals:
◦Propylene Glycol(PG) – Recognized as “Safe” by the FDA. Used as a food additive. It is also found in asthma inhalers.
◦Vegetable Glycerin(VG) – Simply known as Glycerin. VG is a natural sweetener. It is also found in cough syrups, toothpaste, and mouthwashes
PG/VG may or may not contain nicotine. Nicotine is added with PG/VG in different strengths, usually 8, 12, 18, and 24 (mg/ml). There are different mixtures for e-juices. The more common mixture is 70/30 (PG/VG). 50/50 is also available to produce more vapor. VG ONLY-based juices are also available. E-juice generally also contains food flavor additives.
Depending on the kit that you purchase, there are usually 3 parts in an e-cigarette:
Battery – The part that powers the entire unit. There are different battery varieties, differentiated in capacity (mAh), functionality, and sizes. Some have adjustable voltage output in order to power higher resistance(ohms) atomizers.
Atomizer – The part that heats up the e-juice.
Cartridge/Clearomizer/Tank – This is where the e-juice is stored, which is then fed to the atomizer.
Cartridge – Connected to the atomizer. It only stores around 0.5ml. of e-juice, so you constantly have to keep dripping e-juice.
Cartomizer – Atomizer and cartridge assembled as one. The advantage is that cartomizers have changeable atomizers if it needs cleaning, or if it dies. Usually holds about 1ml of e-juice.
Clearomizer – Same concept as a cartomizer. It does, however, have a clear tank so you can see how much e-juice you have left. Clearomizers also have bigger tanks(from 1.5ml to 6ml) so you can store more e-juice.
Perhaps this is one of the most common question asked by new users. The life of each component of an e-cig will vary, depending on usage and how it is maintained.
Battery Life Span – Again, a life span of a battery will vary depending on usage. An average battery should last anywhere from 250-300 charge cycles. So if you vape a lot and charge everyday, a battery would last you 250-300 days.
Atomizer – An atomizer life span varies anywhere from 3 weeks up to more than a month, depending on usage and how you take care of your atomizer. We have users that had atomizers die after 3 weeks, and some claiming they have reached 2 months.

Most high-quality vaping starter kits are in the $40 to $80 range. After purchasing your equipment, you'll want to buy a few bottles of e-liquid (or juice, as we call it). A 15mL bottle of juice, the equivalent of a carton of cigarettes, costs $10 – $15.
Which begs the question, 'Is vaping bad for your lungs? E-cigs do deliver nicotine, but this doesn't come with the tar and dangerous chemicals smoking is known for. Nicotine is addictive, but it has not been proven to be harmful on its own; it just happens to be guilty by its association with cigarettes.
