Ask yourself, how long will my current vape supply last me? Every vaper has different vaping habits and needs. Some vapers can purchase a 60mL bottle of e-liquid and still have some left after a couple of months. Some vapers purchase a 60mL bottle and have to buy a new bottle the very next week because they’re out. During this coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to be as prepared as we can be to stay home for long periods of time. We need to make sure that we have everything we need to limit how much we go out. What vapers need vary greatly depending on how often they vape.
Will my supply last me?
Coils generally last between 1-2 weeks for regular vapers, coils may last a few days for heavy vapers. You know yourself better than anyone so you know what you need. Check your supply, make sure you have enough e-liquid, coils, pods, cotton, etc. E-liquid has a shelf life of 1-5 years if they are kept in the correct conditions such as a dark cool temperature area. Keep your e-liquid in darkly tinted glass bottles to prevent any light heat from speeding up its breakdown.
Time to get a back up
Many people only have one device and will be left out in the cold if something were to happen to it. Remember, it’s harder than ever to get quality vape devices during this lock down. We recommend purchasing at least one device as a backup in case something happens to your current one. Accidents happen and losing or breaking a device is always a possibility.
Vaping with my Significant Other
Even though you are most likely quarantining with your significant other and you usually share a vape device, it is best to use your own personal vape mod or pod kit and your significant other use their own for you and their safety. Make sure to purchase all your vaping supplies together to save money and limit your contact with other people. If you or your S/O do not vape that much but like to take a few hits here and there when you get a craving, it’s probably not ideal to purchase an entire new vape set up and bottles of e-liquid if you barely vape. We recommend purchasing a few disposable vape pens, there is no hassle to replace a coil or fill a pod, you just pick it up and use it, when you are done with it you can keep them in a secure area until you can responsibly recycle them in the nearest e-waste bin. You can find some amazing disposable devices for around $9.99 that can provide over 300 puffs.
Where can I buy?
Today, only stores and buildings that have been deemed “essential” are permitted to be open to the public. According to a review of 40 state stay-at-home orders issued last month, “there isn’t a single state order that has designated a vape shop as an essential business,” many vape shops have had to close their doors until the stay at home orders are lifted. However, even though vape shops are considered “nonessential businesses,” if people maintain 6-feet social distancing, and the capacity is restricted inside the store, the tobacco and electronic cigarette sales can go on in some counties or states.
You can call your local vape shop to ask if they are open during the stay at home order, if they are open, make sure to ask if they offer phone orders so that you can order what you need and pick it up to shorten your trip. Ask if they offer curbside service to further prevent any chances of running into someone infected with COVID-19. If your local vape shop has closed down due to COVID-19, you can order online and get all of your vaping essentials sent directly to your home. Check out our website for all your vaping needs!
If you are ordering your products online and having them shipped to your doorstep, make sure you order everything you need at least a week before you run out of the vape supply you currently have. You want to order ahead of time because shipping times have been getting delayed more and more as the number of orders and confirmed COVID-19 cases rise. We saw a halt in the manufacturing of many well known vape brands because of the strict China lockdown. There is currently no shortage of vapes and there most likely won’t be as the situation in China has been getting much better after their, at the time, controversial decision to lockdown the city of Wuhan. It is still better to be prepared and order your supplies in advanced, things can change very quickly.
Money may be tighter than usual since over 22 million Americans have filed for unemployment. Most people have received their $1,200 stimulus check but that’s for bills and home essentials. Something to help is calling and checking if your local vape shop has any discounts or sales going on, or check out our discounts page to see our best discounts available for you on our site.
