Typical Vaping Myths You Should Know About 0
Myths and misconceptions can easily affect many industries, and unfortunately, vaping seems to be a topic of discussion that’s completed riddled with all sorts of myths and information that’s just downright false. From ridiculous claims like vaping will ‘freeze your lungs’ to things like ‘more than 50 puffs in a day,’ the team at Sunshine Vape wanted to bring some of these laughably untrue claims to light by busting them. Like any good online vapor shop, we want to make sure that our customers and fellow vapers have a good understanding of what’s true and what’s not when it comes to this promising alternative to smoking cigarettes.

Myth: E-Liquid Contains Antifreeze
This is a hilariously untrue claim. It is true that one of the main ingredients found in e-juice, propylene glycol, is also used in antifreeze. However, literally everything else found in antifreeze besides propylene glycol is not in e-liquid. Saying e-liquid contains antifreeze is somewhat akin to saying that you’re drinking water when you’re really drinking a soda or a beer, because, you know, those beverages contain water.
It’s a shame, but even vaping is not exempt from logical fallacies.
Myth: Vaping Causes As Much Harm To Your Body As Smoking Cigarettes
Nope. This is blatantly false. Now, we’re not going to go around and say that vaping is healthy for you, per say, but we will stand behind the claim that vaping is a 100 percent healthier alternative to smoking tobacco or cigarettes. Aside from the fact that e-liquid has four ingredients in it compared to the thousands of chemicals found in cigarettes, smokers who switched to vaping have been able to breathe better, have more endurance, and have an increased sense of smell and taste - all things that were hindered by smoking.
Myth: Non-Smokers Will Pick Up Vaping
It’s possible, but it’s also important to note that e-cigarettes were introduced as a tool to help smokers quit smoking. Vaping is not marketed toward non-smokers and it’s not marketed toward young teens.
According to a study conducted by the CDC in 2014, among the group of adults who had never smoked cigarettes, only 3.2 percent had ever actually tried vaping. The age group that had the highest rate of people trying a vape without ever smoking a real cigarette was the 18-24 age group at 9.7 percent.
Myth: Second-Hand Vapor Is As Dangerous As Second-Hand Smoke
While second-hand vapor may not be considerate to those around you, accidentally inhaling a slight amount of vapor from someone vaping next to you is not nearly going to cause as much harm to your lungs and your body as second-hand smoke would. Heck, try it out for yourself if you really want - stand next to a smoker and a vaper at separate times of the day, and let us know how you smell after you’ve hung out next to the smoker.

Vapes, Or Electronic Cigarettes?
The term ‘vape’ and ‘electronic cigarette’ or ‘e-cig’ are often used interchangeably, but there are some distinctions to be made. When a user has an expensive setup involving a high-wattage box mod (more on that later) and a sub-ohm tank or dripping setup (again, more on that later!), this wouldn’t really be called an e-cig.
Rather, electronic cigarettes can be further classified as ‘cig-a-likes’ because they imitate a similar look and feel of an actual cigarette. They’re usually the size of a pen and even resemble the same coloration as a traditional cigarette, and yet, they still produce vapor. E-cigarettes usually come as a complete yet basic starter kit containing items like batteries, refillable or pre-filled cartridges, and a charger. E-cigs are very convenient and affordable, and they’re also a perfect go-to solution for those new to vaping. However, if you’re seeking a large volume of vapor and the best possible flavor from your e-juice, you’ll want a more expensive, complicated setup. Which leads us to…
In the world of vaping, vape mods are the real deal. Ideal for those with a decent amount of vaping experience, mods can range from a simple $25 battery to a $300-400+ battery. When you hear the term ‘mod,’ it generally refers to the battery that’s supplying the power to the atomizer to cause the vape juice to vaporize. Mods typically come in two broad categories: power-regulated and mechanical, though mechanical mods don’t seem to be nearly as popular these days as they used to be several years ago.
Also known as variable wattage or voltage mods, regulated mods consist of an electronic chip between the battery and the coil. This can be used to adjust the voltage or the power to the coil itself while vaping by using buttons or a dial. More upscale regulated mods even allow the user direct control of coil temperature, with voltage regulation being managed by the chip.
Typically, most regulated vape mods will contain an integrated status screen that displays information like voltage, power, and ohms resistance. Regulated mods are also considered to be safer than mechanical mods, as they contain safety features for fire prevention, battery protection and won’t allow the user to fry out the battery inside of the case.
Commonly known by longtime vapers as ‘mech mods,’ mechanical batteries can be classified as unregulated mods. A pure mechanical mod does not contain an electronic chip between the battery and the atomizer for voltage regulation. Instead, a mech mod always uses the full voltage output of the battery.
Indeed, by the strictest definition of mechanical mods, they do not contain any wires or solder at all, and instead, make direct contact between the battery and the atomizer via a pressure switch. This eliminates the potential for electrical loss to a chip or wires, but it also eliminates the safety features that a chip would otherwise have. Therefore, a mechanical mod relies entirely on you as the user to ensure safe operation. Mechanical mods are strongly advised against for vaping beginners or novices.
What Is Sub-Ohm Vaping?
Ah, sub-ohm vaping. If you’re not familiar with Ohm’s Law, you will be after you get into vaping (trust us). Simply explained, Ohm’s Law refers to the potential difference, or voltage, across an ideal conductor that is proportional to the current that runs through it. In the context of vaping, sub-ohm vaping concerns vaping on a device whose atomizer coils have a resistance of less than one ohm. The main reason that some advanced or experienced vapers stick to purely sub-ohm vaping is to increase the power output of fixed voltage devices like mechanical mods and regulated devices in order to create a greater volume of vapor and more flavor for the user.
A ‘tank’ is a cylindrical unit that contains the atomizer and the wick, which absorbs the e-juice and connects with the battery to then vaporize the e-juice. Many tanks these days come with pre-built sub-ohm coils that the user simply screws into the base of the tank. Experienced vapers even purchase Kanthal wire and other wicking and wire materials to build their own sub-ohm coils and push as much power as they can with their unregulated mechanical mods, but we don’t want to overwhelm you as our reader! That’s another post for another time.

What Is Vaping, And How Can It Benefit You? 0
People have long-consumed nicotine for its soothing and psychoactive properties. It almost seems like, at a certain point in American history, the workforce was practically required to have their standard coffee and cigarette during their breaks. Well, times are different now, but many people still enjoy the nicotine experience, and we support that here at Sunshine Vape. That being said, though vaping e-juice is a well-established phenomenon, many long-time smokers are still confused as to what vaping actually is and how it differs (or is even more beneficial) than traditional smoking. Well, that’s what Sunshine Vape is here to address in today’s blog post.
Our Online Vape Supplier Has You Covered!
Sunshine Vape caters to vapers of all types and experience levels. Whether you’re just getting into vaping electronic cigarettes and you’re looking for a beginner’s setup or you’re an e-juice veteran, we’re confident that our Warwick and South Kingstown locations in Rhode Island, as well as our online e-juice shop, is able to take care of all of your vaping needs. Feel free to browse some of the country’s top vape juice here, and get in touch with our discount vape juice company here.
Now, we’ll cover some basics of vaping and electronic cigarettes.
What Is Vaping?
In a general sense, vaping itself refers to the act of inhaling vapor produced by a vaporizer or an electronic cigarette. The vapor is produced from a material such as e-liquid, a concentrate, or a dry herb.
A vaporizer is an electronic device that turns the vaping material into vapor. A vaporizer usually consists of a battery, a main console or housing, cartridges, and an atomizer or a cartomizer. The battery generates the power for the heating element in the atomizer or cartomizer, which then contacts the vaping material and actually turns it into vapor that can be inhaled.
How Is ‘Vapor’ Defined?
In another general sense, vapor is roughly defined as ‘a substance diffused or suspended in the air which is originally a liquid or solid turned into a gaseous form.’ So, the vapor produced by a vaporizer or electronic cigarette is the gaseous form of any of the vaping materials that you’re consuming. Vapor usually looks quite a bit thicker than smoke, but vapor also smells much better, doesn’t stick on clothing or objects, and quickly dissipates into the air.
E-Juice / E-Liquid Basics
This is the material that you’ll be vaporizing with your electronic cigarette to produce delicious flavors and the option of getting a nicotine buzz. E-juice, commonly known as ‘juice’ or ‘e-liquid,’ largely consists of a PG (propylene glycol) and VG (vegetable glycerin) base. Flavorings are added to the PG and VG mix to create delicious and curated flavor combinations. Indeed, many innovative and surprising flavors have made their way to the vaping market in the past several years. Did you ever think that you could vape blueberry pie, pancakes with syrup, bubble gum, or even banana nut bread? Well, thanks to modern vaping technology, you can!
With vape juice, there is always a certain ratio of PG to VG. Typically, more VG in the juice mixture means that the user will get larger ‘clouds,’ or produce a greater volume of vapor when they inhale. On the other hand, more PG in the juice mixture means that the user will get more of a harsh ‘throat hit,’ something that longtime cigarette smokers tend to desire. Ultimately, the blend of PG to VG comes down to user preference, but a ratio of 70 or 80 percent VG to 30 or 20 percent PG is fairly common in many e juice brands.
Vape juice comes in multiple nicotine concentrations that affect each user differently. The usual nicotine strengths that are offered are anywhere from 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, and 24mg, but nicotine strength could be just about any mg in that number range.
Vapers can also vape e juice with no nicotine in it at all, as many users simply enjoy the flavor of the juice and the act of vaping itself. 0mg juice is what many longtime cigarette smokers work their way down to, and eventually quit smoking and vaping altogether. While the evidence for vaping efficacy to help smokers quit is primarily anecdotal, vaping shows great promise in helping countless cigarette smokers around the world.
Quick Vaping Safety Tips
While vaping is inherently safe if you follow instructions correctly and make sure of what you’re doing, we could probably dedicate an entire blog post to vaping safety tips just to be...well, safe. We’ll keep it concise with some basic vaping safety tips:
- It is generally recommended that if you do not already smoke cigarettes or consume nicotine daily in some capacity, then you should not pick up vaping.
- Be respectful when you vape. In other words, do not vape in public businesses or other indoor places that aren’t your own house or a friend’s house. In general, please avoid vaping in places where smoking is prohibited. While the smell is generally fairly pleasant and dissipates rather quickly, it’s important to respect people around you.
- When you buy e-juice, make sure it is contained in a child-proof bottle or dropper. Keep your vape juice and other vaping supplies out of the reach of children and pets as e-liquid with nicotine can be poisonous if ingested.
- On that note, never drink vape juice, even if a little accidentally gets in your mouth or on your tongue. E-juice is exclusively meant to be vaporized.

Age Verification Compliance 0
Dear valued customers,
Due to new laws and regulations at both the state and federal levels, we here at Sunshine Vape want to be sure we adapt to the new market. In light of the deeming regulations, by August 8th, we must verify the age/identity of every customer who shops with us. We have searched for several solutions for doing this, and have partnered with EVS to adhere with the new laws. Although this process may seem invasive and many have concerns about providing this information online, understand we have to do this because of laws enacted by the FDA. If you want to change this, please communicate your displeasure with your local elected representatives and visit CASAA.org to fight for your right to vape!
How it works:
Upon creating an account at Sunshinevape.com EVS will run your information through their private database. If there is a match you are verified for your recent order and all future orders.
However, if there is no match, Sunshine Vape will require a onetime manual verification which includes taking a copy of your driver’s license. You can upload a valid driver’s license to email@example.com. Uploads can consist of scanned copies or photographs. Your order will not be shipped without verification. After seven business days all orders without verification are cancelled and refunded. If there is communication during the process we can delay cancellation.
Q: Can we, as the consumer, cross out any information on our ID we don't want to give out such as our SSN if it's on there or DL number?
A: Yes - what EVS and Sunshine Vape needs to see is the full license (to show it's not clipped), picture, full name, DOB, and the license #.
Q: Are the photos then deleted after the info is submitted? Are you logging addresses and driver’s license numbers as well?
A: Photos are deleted and neither address nor license number are stored in the EVS or Sunshine Vape systems.
Q: How quick is the turnaround for sending the photo of the ID to getting the O.K. and having the product shipped?
A: Immediate - the majority of EVS verifications are automatic at time of account creation. If you are required to have manual verification it is also immediate during business hours and business days. If you order at midnight during the business week and send an email with your driver’s license immediately afterwards the order will be processed as normal during the next business day. Same for weekends, a Saturday order will be processed on Monday.
