What is a Vapor Shark® Electronic Cigarette?
Vapor Shark Electronic Cigarettes (commonly referred to as "e-cigs") are a satisfying alternative to smoking. We've created a product that provides rich flavor and thick, full-bodied vapor without secondhand smoke, ash, tar, or the 4,000+ chemicals found in tobacco cigarettes. Vapor Shark devices can be used recreationally or as a replacement for cigarettes. You are free to use them in your car or home without the offensive odor or stains caused by tobacco cigarettes. While we do suggest asking permission before using your electronic cigarette where smoking is prohibited, in many cases e-cigs are permitted in areas where traditional cigarettes are not.
What's Inside the Vapor?
One of the most enjoyable aspects of an electronic cigarette is the way it mimics the act of smoking. However, electronic cigarettes do not produce smoke; when the user exhales it is vapor they are releasing. The heating process of the E-Liquid taking place in your e-cig is responsible for the vapor that is produced. The E-Liquid which produces the vapor is a solution of USP Grade propylene glycol (PG), USP Grade vegetable glycerin (VG), flavorings, and nicotine in varying levels.
The primary component of our E-Liquid is USP Grade propylene glycol. Propylene glycol is a clear, colorless liquid that is "generally recognized as safe” by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. PG is used in flavor solutions and extractions. For example, PG is used to extract vanilla from vanilla beans. It's also found in baby care products, mouth washes and toothpastes among many other personal care items. Chances are you've been using a product that contains propylene glycol without even knowing it.
We use only USP Grade vegetable glycerin which is extracted from vegetable oils. VG is clear and colorless with a naturally sweet taste. It is easily digested and is often used as a substitute for sugar in soft drinks and coffee and tea flavors. It is also classified by the FDA as "generally recognized as safe".
Our American made, gourmet flavors are what gives our Premium E-Liquid its delicious taste. From bold, complex flavors of heirloom quality tobacco to sweet fruity blasts of Jolly rancher, each flavor is crafted in-house to deliver mouth watering flavor in the safest way possible. Because electronic cigarettes contain nicotine they are highly addictive. Therefore, electronic cigarettes are not recommended for non-smokers or persons under the age of 18.
What Nicotine Level Should I Get?
We have six nicotine levels to choose from when ordering our premium E-Liquid. We usually recommend starting at 18mg; this amount of nicotine is comparable to that of a standard cigarette. However, nicotine levels are a matter of personal preference. The nicotine level is responsible for the throat hit associated with smoking. A higher nicotine level provides a stronger throat hit, while lower nicotine is smoother.
What Flavors Can I Choose?
The Vapor Shark flavor wizards are constantly concocting new flavors. Our list is always growing. As of right now we have:
Original, Tobacco, Brazilian Coffee, Chocolate Caramel Truffle, French Vanilla, Clove, Menthol, Extra Menthol, Hurricane, Summer Breeze, Ice Tart, Jolly Rancher, Redd Bull, Pineapple Express, Cherry Limeade, Blueberry Waffle, Miami Vice, Nurdz, Vanilla Coke, Root Beer, Root Beer Float, Apple Pie, Strawberry Cheesecake, Candy Cane, Mountain Dew, Sour Apple, Juicy Fruit, RY4, Kiwi Strawberry, and Nana Banana
*Some of these flavors are only available in stores, so come on by and try them out!
How do I use a Vapor Shark Electronic Cigarette?
We offer two different electronic cigarette models: Vapor Shark Fusion and Vapor Shark Mini Disposable E-Cigarettes.
Check out the Video Page on our site for a more detailed explanation of the refill process.
How to use the Vapor Shark® Fusion?
- 1) First, for optimal performance, make sure your lithium-ion battery is fully charged.
- 2) If your Fusion Atomizer tank is empty, unscrew the top of the Fusion unit where the mouthpiece is attached and set aside. Then, fill the tank with Premium E-Liquid to the top of the line that reads 2.8ml. Once full, screw the top of the Fusion back on until it's "finger tight".
- 3) To turn on your fusion, click the button quickly 5 times. By pressing it another five times you turn it off.
- 4) Hold down the button, Take a puff and enjoy!
How to use the Vapor Shark® Disposable Mini E-Cigarette?
- 1) First, open the package.
- 2) Remove the cap that is provided for freshness.
- 3) Take a puff and enjoy!
About How many Cigarettes would be equivalent to a full Fusion Tank?
The tank holds 2.8ml, which is equivalent to about a pack and a half of cigarettes.
How long do the batteries last? And how long does it take for them to charge?
Depending on the user, a fully charged 900mAh battery will typically last a pack-a-day smoker one complete day. It takes approximately one hour for the battery to fully recharge, but don't worry! Your e-cig can still be used while it's charging from the bottom, USB passthrough charger. The Disposable Mini E-Cigarette is eqivalent to approximately 10-15 cigarettes; it cannot be recharged.
How Often Should I Change out my Fusion Atomizer Head or “Wick”?
Depending on the user, each atomizer head (a.k.a. wick) will last approximately 3-6 weeks. This is roughly equivalent to the amount of time it takes a pack-a-day smoker to use a 30mL bottle of E-liquid.
Do I need to turn my Fusion Battery on and off?
When using a Fusion click the button 5 times to turn the device on or off. However, Vapor Shark Electronic Cigarettes have a built-in sensor which activates when you inhale and turns itself off when not in use. It was designed this way to enjoy a fluid smoking experience just like that of a traditional cigarette.
What is the Best Way to Care for My Battery?
Remember to remove your battery from the charger when it's fully charged. Whenever possible use the protective carrying case included with every Starter Kit when your e-cig is being transported. We also recommend charging your battery BEFORE it is totally drained. When you feel your battery getting a bit weak, just switch to a charged, backup battery and recharge the weak one. You will actually increase the battery’s life if you don't run it totally down. This will ensure that your batteries last as long as they should.
Can I Leave my Battery Plugged in to Charger Overnight?
Removing your electronic cigarette battery from the charger as soon as its light turns green will dramatically increase the lifespan of your battery.
Should I Charge my Battery Before I use It?
The batteries are shipped with a 70% charge, which is the best way to store lithium-ion batteries. You don’t need to charge it when you receive it, but for optimal performance it is highly recommended.
How Long do your Cartomizers Last?
Our new Vapor Shark cartomizers can last up to 30 cigarettes worth of smoking, approximately 360 puffs. The actual number of puffs will depend on a number of variables, including length and strength of inhale. For this reason, you may experience slightly different results.
How do I get the Full Value from my Cartomizers?
Since a cartomizer has an air pathway from one side to the other, it is best to store it on its side. This will minimize the chance of e-liquid pooling to either side. While it is rare, there is a slight chance of causing a leak if the cartomizer is stored on one of its ends. When storing long term, it is highly recommended to keep the cartomizers in a very cool, dry place.
How long should I expect my cartomizers to stay fresh?
Once the seal sticker and rubber plug have been removed, the cartomizers will stay fresh for approximately 2 weeks. For long term storage, cartomizers will stay fresh for up to 18 months if kept in optimal conditions. Refrigeration is recommended.
Where can I Smoke an Electronic Cigarette?
Vapor Shark® electronic cigarettes do not produce any ash, odor, or cigarette butts the way traditional cigarettes do. Vapor Shark electronic cigarettes offer a smoking alternative that you can smoke in many non-smoking areas. It's advisable to ask permission before using your electronic cigarette in public places.
After your order has been processed and packaged it will be shipped priority mail and arrive 1-3 days after it has been shipped.
