Many entered the world of vaping in search for an alternative to cigarettes. The appeal is the look and feel of a cigarette in a more discreet package. Ask a smoker why they smoke, and their answer will carry a tinge of shame and stigma.
Out of the ashes of the burnt-out smoker culture comes something different: a breath of fresh air. The vaper, unlike the smoker, will share their customized device with pride and share the benefits. A genuine vaper doesn’t imitate the smoker. Instead, he or she stands distinct. Vaping has grown its own community with its own subculture. It really is its own movement. This distinguishing nature is a hallmark of the vaper identity.
No two vapers are alike, as seen by the diverse ways that vapers personalize their experience. Customizing a unit requires some know-how, so it's no surprise that vapers are tech-smart. Internet savvy, vapers congregate in online forums to discuss modifications and share specs. Whether they’re fine tuning voltage, choosing between a tank or a drip tip, building a fresh coil, or finding the right PG to VG ratio for their e-liquid, every choice becomes an expression of the vaper. The man with the light saber-shaped, rebuildable drip tip MOD is a proud nerd and understands that patience and fine tuning make for a richer experience later. The woman with the sleek MOD, refilling her tank is a go-getter who likes things done quickly.
The unit becomes an extension of the vaper, reflecting their unique personality. Even the e-juice customizes to match the vaper: sweet, savory, fruity, or something mysterious.
What can we say about the vaper persona in general when variety is the name of the game? Vapers are health conscious and unashamed. They value individuality and seek ways to express their personalities. They are tech-savvy and they understand internet culture. Most of all, they are do-it-yourself types who aren't afraid to get their hands oily to create the experience just the way they like it.
