Vaporizer Buying Guide

In this post I will go over the new craze that is vaping and the essential products & accessories that you need to get the most out of your vaporizer.

How does it work?Vaporizer

The vaporizing first starts when the battery component heats up the atomizer, which in turn heats the e-liquid creating the vapor that comes out of the pen. Vaping came about as a means for smokers to help quit their addiction and then developed into the popular phenomena that it is today. “Vape pens” are filled with e-liquid, which is a flavored water based liquid that is frequently combined with varying amounts of nicotine and other additives. E-liquids come in hundreds of flavors and multiple nicotine levels with cartridges becoming more readily available for purchase.

What do I need with my vaporizer?

One of the first things you will want to purchase for your vaporizer is an extra set of batteries, and luckily we have a few of those at battery junction. Different batteries are neededdownload for different pens, but the most commonly used are either 2 rcr123s or 1 18650 depending on desired charge hold and heating level. The battery is an important part of your vaping preferences as the voltage that the atomizer allows through to heat itself is what determines the intensity or “throat hit” that you will get from your vape. Atomizer impedance, or resistance, is measured in ohms with lower resistance leading to hotter vaping of the liquid and higher resistance producing a less harsh cloud. So as you can see, the battery and atomizer combo is arguably the most important part of your vaporizer. Keeping this in mind, it is best for the vape and its user to purchase the best batteries available. Higher quality batteries will hold their charge longer and will take months to deteriorate where as a poor quality battery will begin to decline after a few recharges.

Knife Handles

Wood-Handle-Knives

 

I want to talk now about the various components that make up knife handles. There are a lot of different kinds of knife handles, and you’re sure to find the perfect one for you out of this list. The types of knife handle compositions are: glass-reinforced nylon/GRN, aluminum, Micarta, Kraton, G-10, carbon fiber, and natural materials, like leather, bone, and wood. For myself, I like the sturdiness of a classic wood handle; I inherited a couple of beautiful knives from my late father, one of which is a Bowie knife from the 1960s/1970s that has a thick wooden handle. The other is a smaller utility knife/work knife with a shorter, thinner blade that has a leather-wrapped handle. Regarding that one, I really like the feeling of the smoothness of the leather in my hand. I will go into each one briefly for you, so you can understand the differences among them and why each is valuable to the knife enthusiast.
