4 Ways to Keep a Fellow Vaper on The Right Vaping Path   no comments

Posted at 5:00 am in Uncategorized

Hobbies are always more fun when you
have people to share them with, and vaping is no different. The community
vapers have built is amazing, full of kind and knowledgeable people everywhere,
and it’s always exciting to see it grow. When you meet a new vaper you have a
chance to help add them to that community, and here are four ways that you
should go about it:

Tip
#1:
Engage them in conversation about vaping. Everyone loves connecting
with others about a hobby, it’s one of the primary ways people make friends! Of
course, it’s important to be mindful of people who don’t want to be approached,
I don’t advise asking people to take their headphones off so you can ask them
about their MOD, but when you see someone blow a cloud who looks like they have
a minute to spare, ask what their setup is like. When you ask about their device
or where they like to buy their e-<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/e<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid_c_7.html”>juice (hopefully from Vapin’ in the Cape) or
anything vape related, and you both enjoy the conversation, which just adds
another positive memory for them to associate with it.

Tip
#2:
Let them taste the flavor(s) you have at hand. Variety is the spice
of life, a phrase as true today as it was when it was first penned in 1785.
It’s common for people to pick a few flavors they like and rotate between them,
I’m certainly guilty of it myself sometimes, but with a new flavor comes a
whole new experience. Every time I taste a new flavor I imagine the
possibilities of what else could be delicious, I think of the better <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/e<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid_c_7.html”>juices
I’ve tasted already, and I get excited about the whole range of flavors
available. More than once tasting a new flavor has prompted me to add something
new to my collection. How about you?

Tip
#3:
Offer advice on things that they may not know. A lot of people are
sold nice equipment with features that they aren’t exactly sure how to take
advantage of as new vapers or vapers entering a different aspect of vaping.
It’s easy to take a few seconds to clarify what effect adjusting your wattage
can have or what the difference between differently rated atomizers can be; but
in that moment you’re the representative of what will be seen as a friendly and
welcoming community!

Tip
#4:
Be friendly and genuinely interested! Perhaps the most important
point on the list. Common advice, to be sure; but important all the same. The
real goal is shared enjoyment of a hobby, and there’s no surer way to go about
that than to be exposed to a new friend on the way. The same way that smokers
get to know each other outside of bars, restaurants, and offices across the
world, our love of vaping is a bit of commonality between us all and that’s one
of the greatest things about it.

Ultimately, the best way to help ensure a fellow vaper stays the course and
keeps fighting the good fight is to help them make their experience a positive
one. By sharing information, fostering new experiences, and providing a good
social experience you don’t only help keep others on the path, you’re reminded
why you love it so much yourself.

Why We Fight For Vaping   no comments

Posted at 5:00 am in Uncategorized

We turned in our last set of keys today for our retail locations. It was a tough decision, and I was certain there would be many tears as we locked the doors for the last time. But something amazing has been taking place! Over the past two weeks, as word got out that we were closing down our retail stores, Scott and I started to receive emails, chats, Facebook messages, and phone calls from YOU! We were bracing for your disappointment. We expected a small amount of gloating from some who predicted our demise because we wouldn’t allow children in the stores, or ‘community cartos’ for sampling, or because we had customers sign Liability Waivers when they were purchasing a lithium ion battery. But none of that happened. Instead, what we received was immense support and encouragement to keep going! My tears aren’t of sadness; my tears are from overwhelming gratitude for YOU. 🙂

One of our newer employees asked us to tell him about some of the most unusual customer interactions we’ve had over the past six years, so I thought I would share here too.
There was the 80-something year old lady that we met early on in our vaping venture. Scott met her back before we had a retail store, and we were selling kits out of the back of his 1992 Honda Accord. She had been smoking for 56 years. Now, I can’t relay the entire story of what happened due to FDA’s regulations, but I will tell you that she was the first one who came to us a month after vaping and wanted a big hug because vaping was a godsend for her.
I recall a married couple coming into the 47th Terrace location one night to check us out (and by “us”, I’m pretty sure they were checking me and Scott out to make sure we weren’t scammers LOL). The wife was probably the most skeptical person I had met. She started on the 4081 model (the model BEFORE the 808s that everyone loved). I remember she wanted a pink set of batteries. She left that night, amazed that this little device looked so much like a cigarette, but didn’t quite taste like one, and had no lingering smell (not that any of us could smell in those early days). The next day, they both came back in to the store as ‘true believers’. They eventually upgraded throughout the years, then slowly weened themselves off vaping altogether. I remember feeling such joy for them for meeting their goal of quitting.
One of my favorite stories involved a guy who was a 2-pack a day smoker. He was not impressed with the size of the eGo style batteries. He wanted to kick the habit using an 808 kit. I talked with him for a while, and told him that I was a 2-pack a day smoker too, and I started with “the one that looks like a cigarette”. I was charging batteries so often that it was driving me insane. So when the eGos came out, I was all over it. I told him that I would be happy to sell him whichever kit he liked, but based on his smoking habit, I didn’t think he would be happy with the 808. He felt certain he would be. He came in the very next day, with a big smile, and said, “yeah…I want the bigger battery”. It was funny. We had a good laugh for years over that.
Not all of our stories were done face-to-face. Some of you we got to know online and over the phone. I remember one sweet lady who used to call once a week to order online. She was the friendliest, funniest, most-storytelling customer I ever met. Guaranteed that we would be on the phone for an hour or more just talking. We loved talking to her too. This was back when Buddy would work the phones with us too, and we all had a good story to tell when we got off the phone with her. She was a blast.
Anyone who has ever worked in customer service will have bad experiences to share, but in trying to come up with some, I found my mind wandering toward all of the GOOD that we’ve experienced. It was a struggle to remember the bad. Not that it didn’t happen, but when you have so many fantastic stories to tell, why focus on the bad ones? Look, we all know what it’s like when you can’t get a good hit on your vape device. I know that I’m not that pleasant to be around when it happens to me, and I completely understand what it’s like when a favorite flavor is out of stock, or a trusted battery isn’t working, or your coil isn’t firing correctly. I hope that you all know that I’m not going to take it personally if you get testy, and I’m certainly not going to dwell on the ‘bad’. Our goal has always been to find the solution that makes you happy. When we fail, we strive to learn from it. But when we get it right, we want you to trust that we’ll always try to strive for that.
To my point of this post: we are still here. We may not get to talk face-to-face, but we will chat with you anytime. I can’t speak for anyone else, but vaping saved me from a life of coughing fits (every night, you guys!), stinky hair, yellow fingers, and burn marks on my patio table. We’ve seen and heard how it’s changed your lives. We may have a ‘big company’ looking website, but we’re a small, family-run vaping company. We know where you are in your vaping journey because we’ve been there ourselves. We will continue to do our part in fighting to keep vaping safe and legal for everyone.

It is with great sadness that we are writing to you today.
Unfortunately, due to a series of unfortunate events, we have decided to close our
retail stores. We wish we could give you all the details that led up to this
decision, but we are unable to do that at this time. We struggled with this
decision for some time, as Cape Coral and Kissimmee are where we got to meet you all; we got
to know your families; you shared your successes with us, and we are forever
grateful that you allowed us to be a part of your vaping journey.

Effective February 25, 2017, the doors to both Vapin’ in the Cape locations will be closed for good. However, we will continue to operate our online
presence and will continue to ship orders from our warehouse in Kissimmee. Our
website is www.vapininthecape.com.

We are determined to keep things as smooth as possible for
you, and are committed to maintaining the customer support and service that you
expect and deserve! If you have never shopped online with us before, here are
some of the benefits that we offer:

  • Fast Shipping.
    Free Shipping on most orders. Orders over $10, and weigh less than 15 oz., ship
    free via USPS First Class shipping. Orders over $75 ship free USPS Priority
    Shipping. No coupon code required.
  • Discounts.
    If you receive a Military discount, or Cloud Crew discount in the store, that
    will still apply online. Before you place your first order, contact us on our
    chat, so we can work to get your account set up for you.
  • Phone
    Orders.
    If you prefer to call your order in, we can take your order over
    the phone. The phone number is 855-448-2746.
  • Reward
    Points!
    For every dollar you spend, you earn a point. Collect your points
    and redeem those for gift certificates. You can use your gift certificates for
    everything on the site! No restrictions!! Orders placed on Sundays receive
    DOUBLE REWARD POINTS! If you have
    points on your in-store account, please let us know and we will be happy to
    transfer those to your online account. Just contact us to let us know what the
    name on your account in-store is, and we’ll take care of the rest.
  • VIP Club!
    The VIP Club is an automatic 20% off your order. It’s easy to get into the VIP
    Club: open the emails that we send (1-2 per week), and make a purchase once every
    (14) days. There is a new VIP Club code every month.
  • Online
    Support.
    We offer online chat, which is monitored almost 24/7 (we
    sleep a few hours a night). We are happy to answer any questions you might
    have, or just shoot the breeze to catch up with you. You can also email us at
    <a href="mailto:support@capevape.com”>support@capevape.com, or give us a call
    at 855-448-2746.
  • Personal
    Service.
    Your orders are personally printed, pulled,
    checked, packaged, and shipped by us, the owners. You can be assured that we are 100% committed to making sure your orders go out
    correct, and in a timely fashion. We also keep an eye on what you are ordering
    to make sure you’re ordering the right charger with you new battery, or to make
    sure you really wanted Paris Brand (when you always order Portal Blend).

We realize that in closing our stores, some of you will write
us off for good. We hope that you will give our online store a chance to win
you over, but we also understand that there have been many changes in the retail locations over the
past few months. We wanted to thank you for giving us a chance and for
supporting us throughout the past six years. Truly, your stories of success are
an inspiration and we love watching you evolve as an educated vapor. You guys
rock, and I am PROUD to say that our customers allowed us to experience this
with them.

We will continue to fight the FDA against vaping bans and
legislation, and we will continue to offer the customer service we started out
with through our online store. So this is not ‘goodbye’, this is just us
saying, ‘we’ll see you online’!

Please let us know if you have any questions. We appreciate
the feedback and the opportunity to talk with you.

Sincerely,

Scott & Lorrie Covington

eGo One Mega V2   no comments

Posted at 1:06 pm in Uncategorized

Hello there fellas ! I've decided to kick cigarettes out of my life and start vaping. It's been 23days so far without any cigarette and I've decided to upgrade my eGo-T to eGo one mega v2. I've ordered whole kit and I'm really into DIY stuff, so I also bought CLR coil head and Kanthal A1 0.3mm wire + some japanese cotton. I've emailed Joyetech about some specific info which I wasn't able to find out there. The constant voltage mode is at 3.6v (in cause someone is curious). But to the point:…

FDA Regulations & You   no comments

Posted at 5:00 am in Uncategorized


Due to the FDA regulations that went into effect on August 8, 2016 we MUST implement these changes:

  • You MUST immediately show your ID if you appear to be under 30 years old. Online sales will have to go through third party age verification.
  • Samples
    CANNOT be FREE to a customer or employee. Sampling (in store) will cost
    $1 (+tax), with 100% of the proceeds to benefit SFATA (Smoke Free
    Alternatives Trade Association).

Shops will NOT be able handle your device.

  • Shops CANNOT prime, build, change or modify your coil in any manner.
  • Shops CANNOT take your tank off your device.
  • Shops CANNOT open your tank or your mod.
  • Shops CANNOT fill your tank.
  • Shops CANNOT update any device.
  • Shops
    CANNOT disassemble or assemble your device. Even disassembling our
    display model for you to see is a gray area. We will walk you through
    set up of your new device, however, we cannot be holding it to do so.

If we do any of those things we are considered to be a Tobacco Manufacturer, which we are NOT.

Shops may no longer mix e<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid or add any additives, such as nicotine or flavorings to e<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquids in-store.

Shops may not alter the original package of an item. Meaning:

  • Shops are not allowed to sell single coils.
  • Shops are not allowed to open bottles of <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/e<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid_c_7.html”>juice.
  • Shops are not allowed to open boxed items.

Shops are no longer allowed to tell anyone that vaping helps
people quit smoking. We can not claim that it is safer than cigarettes
or that it is a tobacco harm reduction.

These regulations are as the industry understands them today. As with
any new regulation, things might change over the next few months.
Please be patient with us as we try to adapt to the regulations and as
the FDA sees fit to modify.

What can you do about this:

Support HB 2058 to change the date of which all products created after February 2007 are banned.

Third Party Age Verification   no comments

Posted at 5:00 am in Uncategorized

With the new FDA regulations that went into effect yesterday (August
8th, 2016). we have implemented a third party age verification system. As frustrated as you probably are about this, trust me when I tell you that we are just as frustrated. The process is pretty straight forward, but we wanted to post this blog post to assist you with getting through it. Make sure you have your cell phone close by, because you will need it for the SMS verification part of the process.

Build your shopping cart like you normally would and when you get to the checkout, you will notice a new check box under the Terms and Conditions area.

Select the box that you agree that you are of legal age to purchase in your state (will be 18 or 21 depending on where you live). Once you have selected this box, it will launch the Age Verification system window (see the next section). If you don’t see the window come up, it is more than likely that you have a pop-up blocker enabled in your web browser. You should allow all pop-ups for http://www.vapininthecape.com

This is the Welcome screen of the Bluecheck Age Verification system. It is VERY important that you carefully read each screen as you continue through the steps. Each screen will explain clearly what information the system is looking for and the format it is looking for. Go ahead and click CONTINUE when you are ready to get started.

This is pretty self explanatory as they are just looking for your First name and Last name as it appears on your drivers license or other photo ID. After you have entered the required information, click CONTINUE to go to the next step.

This screen is requesting your Date of Birth. The format is Day first, then Month, then Year. After you have entered this, click CONTINUE. (Please note that if you are under the age of 27, there will be additional instructions for you to send a copy of your drivers licence)

This screen and the next have tripped some customers up. Pay close attention to the format they need your CELL phone number in. Do not use any dashes or parenthesis in your phone number and you do not need to put the number 1, just area code and phone number. After you have entered your phone number in the correct format, click CONTINUE.

VERY IMPORTANT – although the previous screen was asking for your cell phone number for SMS verification, this screen is asking for the last 4 numbers of your Social Security Number. After you have provided that, you will receive a text message with an SMS code. Many customers have been waiting for a text message from the previous step, but you have to provide the last 4 numbers from your SSN before they will send the text SMS. After you have entered your last 4 numbers, click CONTINUE and check your cell phone for a new message.

Enter the 4 digit code that was texted to you and click CONTINUE.

Congratulations! You have made it through the verification process successfully! At this point, you will be able to complete your purchase, and we will get it shipped right out to you.

So that is the process that you will have to do the first time. Every time after that, you will only need to enter your Full Name, Date of Birth, and the new SMS code they will send to you. Thank you so much for shopping with us and for your patience with these new regulatory changes.

Battery not charging   no comments

Posted at 3:55 pm in Uncategorized

Hey guys, I just got my first e cig and I have a problem.
I got it as a gift from my friend and I started using it right away until the battery ran out. The problem comes when I try to charge it. I have an eGo-T. Whenever I plug the charger into my laptop the led is green. When I connect the battery it stays green. I think it's not making contact. I let it charge for 3 hours and the charger's led was green. When I tried to vape, the battery's led flashed blue like 9 10 times and no vapours…

eGo AIO trick to avoid dry/burnt hits   no comments

Posted at 7:05 pm in Uncategorized

I have been using the AIO for a while now, and nothing is more aggravating than prematurely retiring a coil because its burnt. But I have found a simple solution for this, and have not had a burnt coil since. The trick is this: when you are getting a dry hit, blow INTO the mouthpiece to introduce more <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/e<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid_c_7.html”>juice into the coil. The physics are there- When you blow into the tip, you are slightly compressing the air that is in the tank. When the air expands back to atmospheric, it forces some <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/e<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid_c_7.html”>juice…
