That, and doing tricks just looks cool.
1. Blowing Vape Clouds
When you think about vaping, one of the first things that pops into your head will be enormous clouds of vape. And this isn’t hard to replicate. So whether you’re looking to impress your friends, or merely to entertain yourself, have a go at this.
First thing you’ll need is decent equipment - you won’t be able to produce an enormous vape cloud if you’re vaping from a disposable pod. You need something with a bit of oomph behind, something like the Aspire NX30 Rover Kit will do the trick (literally).
You need a bit of kit that has power because the more power you have, the larger your vape clouds will be. You’ll also need to increase your airflow (not only to keep your device cool and prevent it from burning out, but also because the increased oxygen flow will increase the size of your cloud.)
Then you need to make sure you have an e liquid with the right ratio of VG to PG. Basically you want an e liquid with a higher ratio of VG to PG. PG brings the flavour, VG delivers the cloud. Worth bearing in mind you’ll lose some of the flavour with higher VG, but when you can disappear in a cloud of your own making, that small sacrifice will be worth it.
Finally, blowing an enormous vape cloud is all down to the correct technique - essentially you want to expel all the air from your lungs, then inhale vapour long and deeply, standing up as you do it, pushing your shoulders back and your chest out, filling your lungs as full as you can. From there, hold your release for a second, then slowly thrust your jaw forward to open your throat and exhale, long and slow will do the trick.
Now we see you, now we don’t!
2. The O-Ring
If you’ve ever seen a smoker blow smoke rings before, you’ll know how sexy and fascinating it can be. So, if you want to recreate the magic yourself when vaping, this is one of the most basic tricks you can master.
And the best thing about blowing O-rings when vaping is you not only get bigger rings than if you were smoking, you can blow more of them, simply because vaping gives you more to work with than smoking does.
So, blowing an O-ring is based on the age old method of blowing smoke rings - take a toke on your vape device, inhaling the vapour into your throat. Hold your tongue at the bottom of your mouth, tucked as far back as it can go, like a coiled snake about to strike, and purse your lips to form an O shape. Then pulse small quantities of vapour back out of your throat, pushing it with a small cough. Keep your tongue in place and thrust your jaw forward to throw the vapour out through your lips.
Practice makes O perfect.
3. Ghost Inhale
This trick is also known as the mushroom cloud or the snap inhale and is again a very simple vape trick to master. You are really just exhaling a ball of vapour (also known as the ghost or mushroom cloud) and then sucking it back in before it has time to dissipate (snap inhale).
Take a long deep inhale filling your mouth with vapour (don’t suck it down into your lungs), hold it for a second, then push the vapour back out quickly in a ball, and before it can disperse, inhale it again.
4. The Dragon
Quite possibly one of the coolest vaping tricks around. And best of all, it doesn’t take much time or practice to get right… so, how do you turn yourself into a vape breathing dragon with vapour billowing out of each nostril and both sides of your mouth at the same time?
It’s all down to mouth shape.
Like blowing O-rings, you need to have your lips in a certain position to force the vapour out how you want it, then it’s a case of coordinating your breathing, what’s hard about that?
Take a big draw, just don’t inhale the vapour, you want to keep it in your mouth. Close your lips in the middle, leaving the edges loose (you can hold your lips shut with a finger until you master this technique), then blow out through your nose and mouth. Eh voila, a dragon!
5. The Jellyfish
This trick is one of the hardest tricks to master, but once you’ve got it, you’ll be creating vape jellyfish everywhere you go!
OK, take a big mouthful of vapour - don’t inhale it into your lungs. Then purse your lips as if you’re going to exhale a vape O-ring and let out the biggest O-ring you can muster, now whilst that O is floating in front of you, quickly take another drag from your vape device and exhale the vapour through the centre of the O-ring, creating your very own jellyfish.
