If you're trying to scale Vape Mountain without any help you might struggle to get past base camp. Here are some of the most common questions about our website and also vaping in general:

What is Vaping?

'Vaping' describes the inhalation and exhalation of the vapour produced by an electronic cigarette or related device. The 'e-liquid' is heated up by a coil/coils and the vapour inhaled. 

Is Vaping Safer than Smoking?

Opinions vary as to how safe vaping is, but it is generally considered to be significantly safer than smoking. The Royal College of Physicians have recently come out in support of electronic cigarettes, branding them "much safer" and a great tool for stopping smoking.
