Vaping Hardware and E-Liquids Explained
New to vaping? Need in-depth information on vaping? These frequently asked questions can
help you at any stage of your vaping journey.
How do vaping devices work?
A vaping device is typically comprised of three main components:
Tank or cartridge
The tank, or sometimes a cartridge, which is filled with flavored e-liquid.
Coil or atomizer
The heating coil, sometimes called an atomizer. It heats the e-liquid to create vapor.
The battery powers the heating coil. This creates the pleasant vapor for you to inhale.
A tank is the most common e-liquid receptacle. Some cig-a-likes use a cartridge system that combines the
atomizer with the tank to create a single unit. More powerful vaping devices require larger tanks but
vaporize e-liquid faster.
The coil is sometimes called an atomizer. It heats the e-liquid to create vapor. Coils take many forms.
Some have wicks while others are made from wire and wrapped in cotton. All vaporize e-liquid.
The capacity of a battery, or the amount of charge it holds, is measured by milliamp hours (mAh),
wattage (watts), and voltage (volts) are a measure of the amount of power being generated.
These can be adjusted manually on some batteries.
what exactly is e-liquid?
E-Liquid, also called e-Juice, is the fluid that your vaping device turns into vapor. It consists of
propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), flavoring, and nicotine, if desired.
How is e-liquid made?
Halo e-liquids are blended by skilled chemists in a state-of-the-art cleanroom
in Gainesville, Florida. We use only the finest ingredients,
and we independently test all our flavorings. Each e-liquid is steeped to achieve
maximum flavor before being put into our iconic cobalt
blue bottles. All are packaged with child-resistant caps
— Halo was one of the first manufacturers to offer these — and include best-by
dating and trackable lot numbers on the label to ensure freshness and quality.
Once a formula has been tested and perfected it is sent to our production center,
where it’s blended by trained chemists in a cleanroom environment. We use precision
mixing and filling equipment, in conjunction with our proprietary steeping process,
to maintain consistent taste and quality in every batch.
After an e-liquid has been blended it is given time to steep. As in the production of fine wine, it’s
important to allow the various ingredients to marry in order to achieve peak flavor. Once sufficient
time has passed the e-liquid is tested for quality and bottled.
After steeping is complete, the e-liquid is bottled in glass. For smaller amounts — 7 and 10 ml — a
durable plastic bottle is used and inserted into a light-proof box.
pg vs. vg
You may occasionally see an e-liquid marketed as high VG, or even 100% VG. This relates to the amount of
vapor the e-liquid produces. While both propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin are used as an e-liquid
base, bases that feature more VG tend to produce a greater amount of vapor. Many vapers who have just
transitioned from smoking prefer higher PG for its throat hit — the sensation you get when the inhaled
nicotine hits the back of your throat. High VG liquids offer a lesser throat hit.
what distinguishes a quality e-liquid?
Good e-liquid can provide you with a top-of-the-line vaping experience. Bad e-liquid is unsatisfying at
best and unsafe at worst. It’s in your best interest to be discerning. Before you buy an e-liquid, the
manufacturer has a responsibility to let you know what’s in it, where its ingredients came from, and
whether it’s been tested. If they won’t furnish that information, you may want to choose another brand.
Halo is always proud to provide that information to you.

Cost-wise, how does vaping compare?
You will first need to pick out your hardware. Prices vary by device. But in the long run, vaping
can save you a lot of money. One 30 ml bottle of Halo premium e-liquid, for example, costs about
$19.99 — a fraction of the ever-rising cost of a carton of cigarettes. That bottle equals up to three cartons,
depending on your nicotine level and usage. To put it another way, one 30 ml bottle of Halo
e-liquid can potentially last as long as 20 to 30 packs of your favorite brand of smokes!
Which Type of CBD is Best for Me?
This depends on the specific type of "effect" you're looking for. CBD Isolate is the most pure form of CBD and is completely devoid of all other plant compounds. CBD Isolate usually takes effect faster. Full Spectrum CBD, on the other hand, includes all of the plant compounds with the CBD, including terpenes. Studies show these compounds all work together to provide the maximum benefit of the CBD vape liquid. Most consumers try both and compare the results.
which vaping device is best for me?
This depends on how advanced a vaper you are. There are cig-a-likes such as the G6, which resemble
traditional cigarettes and are favored by new vapers. There are vape pens like the Triton. And then
there are more sophisticated vaporizers, like the Triton II and Reactor, often used by seasoned vapers for
a longer vape and better cloud production. In addition, JAG6 tanks enable DIY users to rebuild some
Most new vapers, the colloquial term for E-cigarette users, like to transition from traditional
cigarettes to electronic cigarettes with a model that looks and feels like what they’re already used to.
That’s why the G6 is a perfect starting point for new E-cigarette users.
the triton tank system
While many former smokers are content to stay with the G6, others move on to a more advanced vaporizer
or “vape pen”. Meet the Triton Tank System. While it feels a little different, the Triton has many
attractive features such as a larger tank, extended battery life and improved taste.
From the massive tank and dual vertical coil, to a battery that allows for adjustments of wattage and
voltage, the Reactor allows you to tailor your experience to your vaping preferences while getting
immense flavor and vapor production.
What Flavor of E-Liquid is Best for Me?
Many people who are using vaping as an alternative to smoking tend to stick with what’s
familiar — tobacco and menthol flavors with a higher PG base to get a solid throat hit. But in
our experience, that’s a phase. While there may always be a place in your heart for tobacco or menthol flavors,
many of our customers quickly discover the joys of vaping more adventurous flavored e-liquids —
like Malibu or Twisted Turnover — and start to make those a regular part of their rotation.
