This is a list of my favorites vaping websites and my recommended vape resources.
If you have a useful resource that you would like to add, send me an email. Keep in mind that I’m not going to list some random vape store for no reason at all.
An online vape store that specializes in helping to introduce smokers to vaping. All products are designed to appeal to beginners, including easy-to-use hardware and started bundles. E-liquids consist of various tobacco blends, menthols, coffees, and a few specialized flavors such as peach watermelon. The site is a joint effort between Phil Busardo, Dimitris Agrafiotis, and Schell Hammel, all well-known and trustworthy members of the vaping community.
Guide To Vaping is owned by Blake Brown, a vaper since 2011. Blake publishes reviews, instructional guides, giveaways, and the latest news on Guide To Vaping, which is probably the largest vape blog online. There’s something here for everyone and it’s a great place to stay up-to-date with what’s happening in the industry.
Spinfuel is one of the largest publishers of vape news. They keep vapers informed with the latest news in the industry. They also do regular giveaways. Something unique about Spinfuel is that because they have a solid team of reviewers, they are able to publish unique e-juice reviews where everyone can give their opinion on a particular e-juice.
One of the oldest vaping blogs online. They’ve been chronicling quitting smoking and vaping since 2008, and their posts include the first ever interview with the inventor of the electronic cigarette.
There are a bunch of great vaping subreddits on Reddit. Too many to name. Which is why I created this multireddit with all of the better vape-related subreddits (32 subreddits currently). But if you’re looking for a few standouts, check out DIY-eJuice, /r/Electronic_Cigarette, and /r/Vaping. I’ve found that Reddit is the best place to get advice no matter what your experience level is.
ECF is one of the largest and oldest e-cigarette forums online. You can usually find what you’re looking for here if you have a question. The one drawback is that it’s heavily (and I mean HEAVILY) moderated. The moderators here will not allow anyone to say anything bad about vaping, no matter if it’s true or not. Still, it’s a great forum if you have questions. You can expect to get many answers from knowledgeable experts here.
Vaping Underground is a very popular forum with a lot of user activity and is much more relaxed than ECF. This is where vapers go when they tire of the heavy moderation at ECF. It’s a great forum as well, but it’s also susceptible to a lot of “noise” due to the high amount of traffic they get.
This site has the largest database of free user-submitted recipes on the internet. You can filter by flavors, ratings, and date submitted. They also have a forum, a flavor stash to track the ingredients you own, a DIY calculator, and a constantly updated flavor warning list to notify users of questionable ingredients.
This is a great fun resource for creating random e-juice recipes. It might be good or might be bad! Or it might be a good way to hone your DIY skills by taking a random mix and seeing if you can make it better.
Vaping Social Communities
MyVaporium is where all of the top reviewers on YouTube hang out when they aren’t doing reviews. You can expect to see people like Mike Vapes, DJLSB Vapes, STVapes, VapnFagan, and many other popular reviewers here. They are a very friendly community eager to help everyone.
From what I understand, there was a disagreement with how The Vapedom was being run, which resulted in a fallout within the community and why MyVaporium was created. The Vapedom has a nice community of vapers, but it’s nowhere near as active as MyVaporium.
Of course I have to mention my own podcast! Go check it out! I talk about the latest news in the industry, recent scientific research, new products, and other vape related stuff.
This show is hosted by Vaping V1ck (the funny one, not the angry grumpy one) and Joe Cloudy. This is my favorite podcast because Vick and Joe just have great chemistry. The show is a blast to listen to and always makes me laugh.
Other Useful Resources
JuiceDB.com has the largest database of e-juice reviews anywhere. They are all user-submitted reviews, which means that you can trust that they are honest. Submitting reviews keeps this site alive and useful so head over there and submit your own if you can.
Vape Crawler is just like JuiceDB, except for they focus on hardware reviews. There aren’t any other sites around that do this, so check it out and submit reviews too.
Don’t trust the wraps on your batteries. They probably aren’t accurate. Mooch tests batteries for a living and has all of the professional equipment needed to do it. When he started vaping, he noticed that there was a lot of misinformation being spread about batteries so he set out to test the batteries we use for vaping in his spare time. This resource shows his recommended batteries based on his tests. He keeps the list updated regularly.
