Vaping lingo: The words you need to know
As you probably already know, vaping has been around for quite a while now. In the UK alone, there are believed to be over 3 million vapers – that’s a big number!
When you’re new to vaping, in some respects this is a good thing. You’re not alone in vaping, so if you need to know something you can always ask somebody. However, not understanding the vaping lingo (vaping language) can leave you confused, even when you’re asking somebody for help.
To avoid any future embarrassment of not knowing what people are talking about, we’ve written this blog post to help you learn some of the key vaping language!
All day vape: ‘Wow, this is definitely going to be my new all day vape!’ If you’ve heard a friend saying this and you have no idea what they’re talking about, they’re referring to an e-liquid flavour that they really enjoy, more so than any other flavour they use.
Atomiser – or atty: The atomiser, sometimes referred to as the atty, is the part of your electronic cigarette that houses both the coil and the wick. This part is heated to produce vapour from your e-liquid.
E-juice: Also known as e-liquid, this is the liquid that you put into your device. This liquid is vaporised into vapour. Liquids come in different strengths and flavours; there are literally hundreds if not thousands to choose from.
Juice/liquid/flavour: See above! These are all synonyms for e-liquid or e-juice.
Mod: Mod is short for modifications. E-cigarette mods usually have things such as larger batteries. The aim of mods is to provide a better performance and experience for the user of the electronic cigarette.
Vaper’s tongue: This is the sensation that’s experienced when a user has used the same flavour for too long or too regular, which can cause the tongue to lose sensitivity to the flavour. This is nothing to worry about; switch flavours or stop using your device for a few hours, perhaps days, and everything will return to normal!
