Our Preferred Suppliers of Flavour Concentrates

flavor west

We like many vapours thought the benefit of making our own ejuice would help us save money on buying premixed ejuice. We began mixing eJuice 2 years ago and we wanted to share with you some information about the concentrates, the suppliers we offer and what we consider to be amongst the finest available.  We’ve got what we consider to be the top 3 brands to use when mixing your own ejuice here is a little bit of information about them.

The Flavor Apprentice Flavor Concentrates

With names like DX Marshmallow, DX Milk Chocolate, and Graham Cracker Clear, DIY e-juice chefs can easily create a sweet and gooey e-juice that tastes like a fresh-from-the-campfire S’more. The Flavor Apprentice brand offers some of the best e liquid flavors because they are always crisp, clear, and vibrant. Use a little, or use a lot. It’s entirely up to you. Check out the Lucky Leprechaun Cereal flavoring for a distinctive breakfast vape, and don’t forget about the zesty Meringue, the luscious Lemon II, and the juicy Kiwi Double selections. Mix these three together for a key lime pie flavored e-liquid that is simply out of this world!

Capella Flavor Concentrates

Capella selections are some of the best vape juice flavors for vapers who simply love a sweet and sour vape juice. From the tangy Sweet Tangerine to Italian Lemon Sicily and the rich Harvest Berry flavorings, Capella vape flavors are not your run-of-the-mill fruity blends. But Capella also offers other selections that are specifically designed to cure those sugar cravings without all the extra calories. The Glazed Doughnut option is to die for, and the Sugar Cookie blend is deliciously divine.

Flavor West Flavor Concentrates

You can’t go wrong with Flavor West. These are some of the very best e juice flavors on the market today. For DIY e-liquid mixologists who are tired of the same boring blends, Flavor West offers lots of mouthwatering temptations with names like Banana Split, Cake Batter Dip, and Dulce De Leche. Flavor West even offers a deliciously decadent Coconut Cream Pie selection that is pure heaven. And the Strawberry Shortcake, the Vanilla Cupcake, and the Rice Krispies Type vape flavors are also extremely popular, especially for those hard-to-please sugar addicts.

Introduction to Batteries

LG HD2 18650 Li-ion Battery 2000mAh 3.7V 25A


Batteries can be sorted into 3 categories: lithium-ion battery, nickel–metal hydride battery and alkaline battery.

Lithium-ion batteries

Lithium-ion batteries (sometimes Li-ion battery or LIB) is a family of rechargeable battery types in which lithium ions move from the negative electrode to the positive electrode during discharge, and back when charging. Chemistry, performance, cost, and safety characteristics vary across LIB types. Unlike lithium primary batteries (which are disposable), lithium-ion electrochemical cells use an intercalated lithium compound as the electrode material instead of metallic lithium.

Lithium-ion batteries are common in consumer electronics. They are one of the most popular types of rechargeable battery for portable electronics, with one of the best energy densities, no memory effect, and only a slow loss of charge when not in use. Beyond consumer electronics, LIBs are also growing in popularity for military, electric vehicle, and aerospace applications. Research is yielding a stream of improvements to traditional LIB technology, focusing on energy density, durability, cost, and intrinsic safety.

Alkaline batteries

Alkaline batteries are a type of primary batteries dependent upon the reaction between zinc and manganese dioxide(Zn/MnO2). A rechargeable alkaline battery allows reuse of specially designed cells.
Compared with zinc-carbon batteries of the Leclanché or zinc chloride types, alkaline batteries have a higher energy density and longer shelf-life, with the same voltage. Button cell silver-oxide batteries have higher energy density and capacity but also higher cost than similar-size alkaline cells.

The alkaline battery gets its name because it has an alkaline electrolyte of potassium hydroxide, instead of the acidic ammonium chloride or zinc chloride electrolyte of the zinc-carbon batteries. Other battery systems also use alkaline electrolytes, but they use different active materials for the electrodes.

Nickel Metal Hydride Batteries

3A nickel–metal hydride cell, abbreviated NiMH or Ni-MH, is a type of rechargeable battery. It is very similar to the nickel–cadmium cell (Ni-Cd). NiMH use positive electrodes of nickel oxyhydroxide (Ni-OOH), like the Ni-Cd, but the negative electrode uses a hydrogen-absorbing alloy instead of cadmium. A NiMH battery can have two to three times the capacity of an equivalent size Ni-Cd, and their energy density approaches that of a lithium-ion cell.

The typical specific energy for small NiMH cells is about 100 Wh/kg, and for larger NiMH cells about 75 Wh/kg (270 kJ/kg). This is significantly better than the typical 40–60 Wh/kg for Ni–Cd, and similar to the 100-160 Wh/kg for Li-ion. NiMH has a volumetric energy density of about 300 Wh/L (1080 MJ/m³), significantly better than nickel–cadmium at 50–150 Wh/L, and about the same as li-ion at 250-360 Wh/L.

NiMH batteries have replaced Ni-Cd for many roles, notably small rechargeable batteries. NiMH batteries are very common for AA (penlight-size) batteries, which have nominal charge capacities (C) ranging from 1100 mAh to 3100 mAh at 1.2 V, measured at the rate that discharges the cell in five hours. Useful discharge capacity is a decreasing function of the discharge rate, but up to a rate of around 1×C (full discharge in one hour), it does not differ significantly from the nominal capacity.

NiMH batteries normally operate at 1.2 V per cell, somewhat lower than conventional 1.5 V cells, but will operate most devices designed for that voltage.

About 22% of portable rechargeable batteries sold in Japan in 2010 were Ni-MH. In Switzerland in 2009, the equivalent statistic was approximately 60%. This percentage has fallen over time due to the increase in manufacture of Li-ion batteries: in 2000, almost half of all portable rechargeable batteries sold in Japan were NiMH.

One significant disadvantage of NiMH batteries is a high rate of self-discharge; a Ni-HM battery will lose as much as 3% of its charge per week of storage. In 2005 a low self-discharge NiMH battery (LSD) was developed. LSD Ni-MH batteries significantly lower self-discharge, but at the cost of lowering capacity by about 20%.

Notes about batteries

All rechargeable battery’s voltage are 3.7V-4.2V.If batteries are series-connected, the total voltage should be added up. If batteries are paralleled-connected, the total voltage remains 3.7V-4.2V. (Note: TM11 employs 4 18650 batteries and its total voltage is 4.2V. If employs 8 CR123 batteries, the total voltage will be 6 V.(Due to design limit, TM11 can’t employ RCR123 battery.)

All non-rechargeable batteries’ voltage are 3V.

Alkaline batteries’ voltage are1.5V,Ni-MH batteries’ are 1.2V.

Flashlight‘s brightness is subject to battery voltage.

Battery Type conversion :AA=14500,CR123A=16340,CR123A2=18650。(Note:14500 Li-ion battery is not applicable to our products which use 2AA battery)

Battery Type change: AA=14500,CR123A=16340,CR123A2=18650.

e-Cigarette and e-Juice Suppliers

Electronic cigarettes are the future of smoking! They give a smoker everything they could want; the ability to have nicotine, in a manner nearly identical to smoking a cigarette, the freedom of many modern conveniences, and most importantly, they contain no tobacco, produce no smoke, and leave behind no tar! Why Blue Light Vapes? We have spent 4 years of time and cost researching what we have on offer for you today. We are devoted to the cause of debunking the myth and getting smokers to give up tobacco consumption.

Nicotine products for vaping will be legalised by next year.


Exciting news for the industry yesterday e cigarettes are to become legitimate products to aid in the cessation of tobacco combustion.

Nicotine products for vaping will be legalised by next year, but former politician and health campaigner Tariana Turia says the addiction will still be there.
