PRODUCT REVIEW - PLANET OF THE VAPES


We love it when customers & people in the industry review Simple Vape products. It was only last month that Planet of the Vapes wrote a stellar review of our VG by Simple range , and we are delighted to see they have come back for more... 
For those who do not yet know who Planet of the Vapes (POTV) are, they are the Bible of vaping so to speak. Everything you need to know about vaping can be found on POTV - from the latest news of the vaping industry, to beginners' and advanced guides, E-liquid recipes, highly professional reviews and the most active vaping forum with thousands of daily users. Planet of the Vapes is a highly trusted source in the vaping community, so we're very proud to read their shining review about our liquid collection. 

This time they have put the Simple Collection through its paces. Simple Vape Co's product line was developed over many months with the help of expert tobacconists and taste professionals. With a strong focus on creating nostalgia through both taste and smell, our flavours all carry a hint of days gone by, giving customers an experience not found elsewhere.


Our range of 8 unique flavours have been given a very detailed review and we are delighted with their conclusions...

Influencer Series: VAPE EMPORIUM

Welcome to the first post in a new series that we are launching on the blog today. The Vape industry is growing fast and its full of amazing characters with unique stories to tell.

Throughout the 'Influencer Series' we will be bringing you exciting original content, film and interviews with some of the top Vaping influencers, associates, advocates and people we just love and had the pleasure of meeting and working with over the last year.

We have hand selected a great bunch of people that have a unique take and something to say. Its a chance for us to shine a light on our friends who we think are doing amazing things for our industry.

First up we have Andy and Amar from the Vape Emporium. A year ago they were one of the first shops to stock Simple Vape in London, so we're revisiting them a year on to see how they are getting on...

SVC: Hey guys, thanks for joining us today, for those who don't know Vape Emporium can you introduce yourselves and your team to the community?

ANDY: Vape Emporium is an extremely customer focused retailer, started off and run by passionate vapers. Our ethos is to source and sell the best products and liquids sourced from around the world, to provide an effective and enjoyable vaping experience to our customers, whatever their level may be.

SVC: How did the idea and name for Vape Emporium come about and what drove you to open your first in Hampstead, London? 

AMAR: The idea came about after I was working on the Olympic Park as a Construction Manager about 4 years ago, smoking far too many fags when I saw a security guard vaping on an ego. I ask what it was and can I have a go. The rest is History.

ANDY: We chose the name and developed the logo to inspire the feel of a clear and reliable brand with longevity and heritage twinned with a modern twist. The 1st store was opened in Hampstead because it felt like a perfect location match to our values and products, as it is a beautiful and community-led area with decades of years of bohemian heritage with a very warm friendly vibe.

SVC: How has vaping improved your life?

ANDY: I really enjoy keeping fit by playing sports, running, cycling and snowboarding; and since staring vaping 3 years ago I haven't touched a cigarette. This has improved my health dramatically, as well as allowed me to perform to a much higher level in the activities I enjoy and love. Not to mention the obvious things like not smelling of stale cigarette smoke and being able to enjoy a vape with a drink, without being ushered outside in the cold/rain and have said goodbye to the hangovers I used to get!

AMAR: It has improved my life in many ways, from feeling fitter and healthier to having more money at the end of the month. Its also allowed me to work in an industry that I love and feel passionately about.

SVC: We've noticed you stock some fine vape hardware, what's your favorite Setup, mod and E-Juice?

ANDY: I like to keep things simple, easy, smart-looking, reliable and fuss-free - so I have a subtank on an IPVD3 with a Nolli driptip and one of our VE vapebands, of course. I change juices frequently, as you can imagine, but I still can't put MVP by Tasty Cloud down!

AMAR: BMI V1 Mod, Aeronaut RDA, Certified 365 (butterscotch, vanilla custard).

SVC: 5 things you couldn't be without? 

ANDY: Vape, mobile, car, home surround sound system, snowboard.

AMAR: My Vape, Good food, my TV, my pets, my wife.

SVC: Your thoughts on the rapid growth of the vaping industry & what do you think is missing?

ANDY: Extremely exciting for us and our customers. More collaborations with brands outside of the vaping industry

AMAR: The rapid growth is a testament to the designers who are constantly utilising new technologies to help improve vaping - its got to be a good thing.


SVC: What are your thoughts about the upcoming TPD regulations?

ANDY: Although they are ridiculous and nonsensical, I'm pleased our country has decided to take the lightest touch possible especially when compared to most of our European neighbours and when the US looks like it's heading.

AMAR: Pointless

SVC: Where do you see the UK e-cig industry being in 5 years time?

ANDY: I think there will be more vapers than smokers in the UK.

AMAR: Hopefully an extension of where it is today and not in the hands of Big Tobacco and Big Pharma

SVC: If you could change one thing about the Vaping industry what would it be?

ANDY: The impending regulations around tank and bottle size and the sales of poor quality liquid.

AMAR: Remove Big Tobacco and Big Pharma completely from the industry.

SVC: You have just opened your second store in Richmond, Do you have any plans for more London, UK or international Emporium stores? 

ANDY: Yes, we are already looking for our next site in London and are looking abroad too.

AMAR: Vape Emporium is ever evolving, so we have some big plans for 2016 including a possible overseas location!



SVC: What's is the best advice you could give to someone new to the wonderful world of vaping?

ANDY: Choose the right device for you (not just what your friend has), choose the right nicotine strength liquid from a decent manufacturer and get advice from an expert, like one of our VE vape consultants!

AMAR: Visit a quality vape shop where you can get the right advice to choose the best device and liquid for your needs. Get this right and you will never look back.

SVC: Wave Saver. If you ended up stuck on a desert island and all your mods, RDAs & juices where being washed away in the waves what would be the 1 mod, RDA & juice you would kill yourself saving?

ANDY: This is the same as the question above!?!?

AMAR: BMI DOPE Edition, My Marquis RDA and my 120ml bottle of Certified 365!

SVC: Who would you like us to profile / interview next?

ANDY: One of our regular customers - Tom Hardy

QUICK FIRE 10:

1. Clouds or Flavour?
ANDY: Both, but flavour, if I had to choose one
AMAR: Flavour

2. Mech or Chip Mod?
ANDY: Chip
AMAR: Chip

3. 10ML or 100ML?
ANDY: 100ml, of course
AMAR: 100ml

4. Tequila or Sambuca.
ANDY: Tequila - too many bad experiences with Sambuca
AMAR: Neither

5. Kanthal or NiCr?
ANDY: Kanthal
AMAR: Kanthal

6. Desert or Fruit?
ANDY: Are we talking juices here? If so, desert
AMAR: Desert

7. Hampstead or Richmond?
ANDY: Hampstead
AMAR: Richmond

8. Prebuilt or Build?
ANDY: Prebuilt
AMAR: Build

9. Christian Or Mario?
ANDY: Mario, as he wouldn't sell out and do an advert with Chris Moyles 
AMAR: Christian 

10. Simple or Complex?
ANDY: SIMPLE 
AMAR: SIMPLE

Big thanks to Andy, Amar and the Vape Emporium Team and all the best of fortune for 2016.

Introducing VG By SIMPLE

Over the last 12 months the dynamic nature of the vaping world has been apparent with new devices hitting the market place each week.

At Simple Vape Co. we want to ensure that we capture as much of the market place as possible and want to provide a product offering to suit all segments and trends out there. 

On the back of this we have immersed ourselves in extensive research over the last 3 months and developed our new ‘VG by Simple’ line. 

The ‘VG by Simple’ line carries a 80/20 VG/PG ratio with VG based nicotine, which comes in 4 different flavours, in 3 different sizes 15ml, 50ml, 100ml. 

This exciting new liquid range still carries with it all the hallmarks of the Simple Vape Co. collection and ethos.

Whilst the style and presentation follows our principles of a clean and minimal look with oversized branding for maximum shelf appeal all produced from our iso9001 UK lab.

New Pricing Structure

As we approach our first full year of trading Simple Vape Co. are pleased to announce our new pricing structure which offers customers even better value across our great product range!

A very important aim for Simple Vape Co throughout our journey has been to bring any cost savings and production efficiencies directly to our loyal customers wherever possible.  Following on from this objective, and after significant investment in our UK lab and machinery, we have been able to streamline our production facilities and enhance our manufacturing process. These improvements have led to a lower cost base which Simple Vape Co. are pleased to announce will be passed straight on to our loyal customers in the form of a 10% reduction in our 30ml range and a 22% reduction in our 10ml range!

We have also updated the pricing of our great value bundles to reflect these changes. 

We will continue striving to produce the best UK made e-liquids at the most accessible prices alongside the firm commitment to our ‘Best of British’ ethos and high quality presentation.



Introducing 50/50 Ratios

Here at Simple Vape Co. we are in constant consultation with our customers and the vaping community to ensure we’re at the forefront of market tastes and trends. With an ambition to provide the best UK made e-liquid on the market and a mandate to continuously improve we’ve listened to our customers and changed the PG/VG ratios on our core collection to align them with the feedback received.

The Simple Collection, now carries a 50/50 PG/VG split using VG based nicotine. These amendments mean our flavours are now even fuller, vapour content / production has increased and the throat hit is much smoother to vape.

As always our core collection will work effortless across all current devices on the market.

#VAPESIMPLE



VAPE - The only aid that worked for me.

I remember the days when smoking was cool. 15 years old I stood on the train station platform, our local hang out we called the tube, smoking Lambert and Butler by the 10s. I always remember thinking: how do these kill so many people? My lungs seemed fine. I could still run, play football, ride my BMX and carry on smoking without any side effects. All this “smoking kills” must just be propaganda to put kids like me off, I thought.

Fast-forward 16 years - now almost 32 years old and waking up every morning coughing my lungs up for fun. Having tried everything to stop smoking over the last 8 years from champix, patches, gum and hypnotism, I still can’t kick that 20-30 a day habit. Nothing actually worked. 

Smoking certainly was not cool now.

2013, I was descending down hill on a mountain bike in the French Alps with my Go Pro head cam capturing the fun. I couldn’t wait to watch the footage back when we got to the camp. It was awful. Not the run, not the location, not the footage. It was the fact that I could hear myself wheezing nonstop as I carved down the mountain.

At first I thought it was the wind, but when my best friend and now business partner Mario pointed out it was not the wind at all. In fact it was me, my lungs not coping with the exercise even though I wasn’t even pedaling. The shock hit me hard, sending a tingle right down my spine. I suddenly saw how the last 16 years of smoking had finally taken effect and how my health was now suffering. 

From that point I started noticing how I struggled for breath. I couldn’t run or ride my bike without my chest hurting. I wasn’t that kid anymore and the effects of smoking had finally hit home. 

Kicking the smoking habit isn’t something that can be done easily. It’s not so much the nicotine - it’s the oral fixation, it’s the hand to mouth you miss the most. So I set about trying to stop yet again. 9 months passed and I was still smoking. It was much harder to quit than ever before. 

Then I was introduced to E-lites by my good friend Sam Jones, owner of Weekend Offender, in late 2013. I was intrigued by this new technology and that it could gave me a dose of nicotine which seemed to work… Until I had a drink! I would always wake up with 2 or 3 dead E-lites and a pack of Marlboro gold the morning after, so that fad soon become a thing of the past.

February 14th 2014 everything changed. My cousin visited London, the hardcore northern chain smoker armed with a ego1 pen, to my surprise. I laughed all weekend as he never put it down. But neither did he smoke any cigarettes all weekend. Before he left he said I should give it a go and left me with his spare. I was skeptical to say the least.

Three weeks flew past with many a burnt coil and a few funny tastes BUT I hadn’t smoked once or felt the need to put the thing down. Was it working or was it some will power in me I never knew I had? I wasn’t bothered! All I knew was that it was working.

From that moment on I knew there had to be better devices and liquids out there to satisfy my thirst for quality British made products. I looked and looked, but there were none – at that point Simple Vape Co. was born.

Twenty months on my health feels great, my lungs are clear and my mornings are so much more pleasant. For me, Vaping worked and has changed my life for the better. I have built a business around this desire for quality and British innovation and spread the word about vaping to help many other smokers kick the habit.

Don’t get me wrong you have to want to kick the habit but with the right advice, a little bit of will power and a vape then nothing is impossible. 

One thing I would say is be persistent, give it time for you lungs, actions and mind to come to terms with it and stay focused. 

Vaping could be a big help for those taking part in Stoptober. Simple Vape Co. supports Stoptober and to help along the way Simple Vape Co. is kick starting the Stoptober campaign with the Simple challenge packs in great costs saving bundles.
