1.4 WHY IS MY VAPE LEAKING?
There are many reasons why your vape or vape tank might be leaking.
First, when you over-fill or spill the e-juice into the chimney, this can cause leakage or gurgling.
Also, when you keep or carry the vape in a horizontal position for a long time, the e-juice can leak out of the airflow holes.
A faulty or old vape coil can cause the tank to leak from the airflow holes too.
If the O-ring on the tank is ripped, this can cause your vape to leak.
To prevent these, you should regularly maintain the vape tank by cleaning in cold water and drying overnight.
TIPS & TRICKS:
If and when your device leaks ensure you take a moment to effectively clean the device and its working mechanisms so they continue to do so. You can use paper towel or a q-tip to get thoroughly inside the components.
Ensure you have properly inserted your coil into the pod or tank.
Remove the pod or tank when charging device.
1.5 IS VAPING HEALTHIER THAN SMOKING?

1.6 HOW LONG DO COILS LAST?
On average a coil should last you 2-3 week, it also depends on the type of e-liquid you are vaping and how hard you vape.
Some e-liquids contain more sweetener than others. Sweetener tends to caramelize the coils a lot quicker resulting in burning out the coil.
TIPS & TRICKS:
It is recommended to prime your coil before use. Meaning once you have assembled a fresh coils inside your pod or tank, add the e-liquid of your choice and let it sit and absorb for 2-5 minutes depending on the size of device. You may need to add additional e-juice throughout priming or at the end.
Turn your device and enjoy!
1.7 CAN I HAVE FLAVOURED E-LIQUID OR IS THERE ONLY TOBACCO FLAVOURING?
Not at all! You can vape a wide range of flavours which are highly regulated via the Canadian government and other governing agencies.
Quality ingredients are important, ensure you know where you are getting your products from. See here for more information on how vaping products are REGULATED IN CANADA

1.8 DO DEVICES REALLY BLOW UP? ARE THEY DANGEROUS?
No, most devices that you see and buy at shops will be regulated mods, so if anything wrong happens internally the devices circuits and chips will not allow the device to fire, until you find out the problem and find a solution.
The devices that have often been associated with blowing up are called mech mods which have no regulation and should not be sold. Those unfortunate incidents were caused by not knowing how the device functions and not knowing Ohm's Law. Knowing the basics of how everything works is important.
Pay extra attention to Battery Safety!
1.9 WHAT IS OHM'S LAW?
Ohm's Law is your first line of defence to battery safety.
Ohms law is used to calculate current, voltage and resistance in any circuit. Your own vape is, indeed, an electric circuit that functions like any other and your personal device probably has variable settings that allow you to adjust each of these aspects individually. By having a good understanding of Ohms law, you can also learn about power and wattage, which is the most common way to measure your vape’s performance. Other than performance, knowledge of Ohm’s law can also help you understand vaping safety, and avoid any hazardous actions.
TIPS & TRICKS:
Remove the pod or tank when charging device.
"PARTNER" or "MARRY" sets of batteries for Dual Battery Mods, so the same two are always being used together. Use battery wraps to keep them organized.
1.10 WHY HAS MY E-JUICE CHANGES COLOUR?
The main reason for the e-liquid colour change is a process caused by oxidation; the gain of oxygen by a substance.
When nicotine containing e-liquid is stored at room temperature, the combination of light and air will cause the liquid to darken over a period of time. The darker the juice the more steeped it is. There is no need for concern as this is common amongst many products that are retailed such as shampoos and lotions.

2.4 WHY DON'T WE OFFER PAYPAL AS A PAYMENT OPTIONS?
Vaping has been providing a safer alternative to millions of smokers worldwide for over a decade.
Numerous credible studies from around the world declare that vaping is at least 95% safer than traditional Tobacco products.
Vaping and Nicotine Based E-Liquids are legal and regulated by the government in most first world nations. Millions of people are turning to e-cigarettes everyday through the means of local shops and online retailers.
PayPal's acceptable use policy is currently unclear and biased. As per the policy PayPal requires approval for online retailers selling vaping products (Devices, Pod Vapes, E-liquids).
As it stands today, PayPal has not approved any e-commerce retailers in US & Canada to use the payment platform for such products. However there are numerous vaping distributors and B2B companies around the world using PayPal's platform to process payments every day, which contradicts heir acceptable use policy
