VAPING & ACCESSORIES
The vaping industry is taking over and Smokes On State is right in the middle of the mix. During the middle months of 2013, we made the decision to give this new industry a try and it has been one of the best moves we have made. We started out carrying the disposable units and it quickly became the store’s focus point. We moved from disposables to pen kits to regulated box mods and then to the big boy mechanical mods very quickly. At Smokes On State, we pride ourselves in the knowledge that it takes to keep vaping safe and effective for our customers. We understand that we are considered a “headshop” in most circles, but we can assure you that we run with the best of the true vape stores in the state of Wisconsin. We offer a very large selection of juices for vaping including our own house flavors that are very tasty, but very affordable, along with some premium lines that are made locally in Wisconsin. As we still have the table that used to be in the very center of the State Street store, we have also added a couple of extremely comfortable couches for the customer to browse through our giant selection of liquids! As you can see, the image provided in this area is one of very old devices and we have decided to leave this image here to give those visiting the site a taste of what it used to be like!
Disposables are where it all began at Smokes On State. We carry two brands of disposable pens in the store, one with nicotine and one without. The brand with nicotine is Tsunami and the brand; without is the Fantasia line of disposables. Both offer near 800 puffs before the pen runs out and both have great flavor. The Fantasia line, just like the shisha, is extremely flavorful and it is offered in 9 different flavors which have no nicotine for those that would like to try the vape scene without the nicotine. The Tsunami brand is offered in 11 flavors that contain 12mg of nicotine while also offering a regular tobacco and menthol flavor in 3 different nicotine strengths. What these disposables offer the user is the chance to test the vape scene out without having to spend a larger amount of money on something that they may not like and they are cheap.
Simple kits are the next step up from the disposables where the major difference is that the disposables are done once they run out and the kits utilize tanks that are refillable. When you are using a refillable tank, you have the ability to switch flavors as well. Simple starter kits range in price and at Smokes On State, we offer a fairly larger selection and don’t be shy with these guys, because they are very capable of helping you make the switch. The very simple starter kits have become obsolete in a way as the liquid for the vaporizers continues to evolve, but as they have become thicker in nature with a higher percentage of vegetable glycerin(VG), the smaller less powerful vaporizers can no longer efficiently vaporize that liquid. We do still, however, offer liquids that are capable of running in the smaller, less powerful vaporizers. You may have noticed that we used to give away a free bottle of liquid with our basic kits, but as the FDA regulations have taken hold of the industry, we are no longer allowed to do that. We have, however, tried to keep our “house” line at prices that make the initial purchase an affordable one!
The next step in the chain of the vaping ladder is the regulated mods. Regulated mods are basically more powerful than the starter kits and they give you more options to personalize your vape with limited danger. Regulated mods come in all sorts and sizes and can be easily personalized for the user. The benefit to a regulated mod comes in more power, usually with variable voltage AND variable wattage. Another benefit to a regulated mod is that they are safe. They are like a smartphone where they control the output of the device, only allowing safe usage. They also make sure the batteries the user is using stay safe and do not go below the recommended charge before they become dangerous. At Smokes On State, we offer a wide variety of regulated mods and since the selection is constantly changing, listing them would be futile. As this market is and always has been continually evolving, the images that you see pictured above will change.
UNREGULATED MECHANICAL MODS
The unregulated mech mod scene is changing. What unregulated mech mods offer that you can’t get from a regulated mod is that they are completely able to be manipulated by the user, which can also make them dangerous if not treated with respect. At Smokes On State, safety is a major issue and we take the time to go over every purchase to make sure the user is getting everything they need to walk out of the store and we are always there to give any assistance that the user may need. Mechanical mods are basically a metal tube made of different metals that contains a battery of a certain size depending on the mod you have. It is really a very simple design that can be very powerful. Some mech mods can get very expensive with all of the accessories that one needs to purchase in order to complete the package. With the ever-evolving industry, mech mods in this area have slightly fallen off the map, but are making a come back. Currently, we do not carry very many mech mods in the store, but do bring them in from time to time.
When it comes to accessories at Smokes On State, we carry only what is tried and true. From brands like KangerTech, Aspire, Smok, Smoant, Sigelei, eLeaf, etc…to the very basic of accessories, Smokes On State has anything you may need. Replacement batteries, chargers, drip tips, etc. Let Smokes On State be your one-stop shop!
At Smokes On State, we once were able to create YOUR own masterpiece right on the premises, but as FDA regulations have taken a hold of the industry, we have since had to outsource our “house” line and limit our once never-ending flavor selection. Don’t let that stop you from coming in to see what we now have to offer though as we have a massive selection of liquids other than our own “house” line. From the best of the best to smaller Wisconsin lines, we aim to please with our selection. While others may lay claim to having the largest selection of liquid in the area, we have put our current selection through the ringer to only keep the shelves stocked with what our customers like the best!! As the industry evolves, flavor and lines of liquids come and go as users are constantly searching for that unicorn….that one flavor that they can continually vape on that doesn’t lose flavor! Our “house” line has a few of those in it that keep our customers coming back for their staple. As bottle sizes have increased, the prices have gone the other way giving the customer a cheaper experience than when the industry first came to fruition. A 30ml bottle in the store is hard to come by nowadays as most of the liquids are in 60ml, 100ml or 120ml bottles. As for our “house” line, we offer a couple of different mixes for the vast array of customers that we have. Our 50/50(VG/PG) mix is only in 60ml size bottles and they are generally used for smaller or less efficient devices. The 50/50 line is available in 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg and 18mg nicotine levels. Our other line is the Max VG line, which is actually a 78/22(VG/PG) mix, and that line is for the users with more advanced devices and also those who seek a smoother hit. The Max VG line we offer comes in both 60ml and 120ml bottles in 0mg, 3mg and 6mg nicotine levels. You can almost be sure that every time you step foot into the store, you will see a different line of liquid as we move our selection around to accommodate our changing customer base!
