Mt Baker Vapers, fall is just around the corner. We have comrades heading back to school and here in Bellingham, Washington we are bracing for cooler temperatures. So the question now is what to vape this September?
This fruity vape is perfect for any apple enthusiast. Here at MBV we describe it as a true Washington apple; sweet and juicy with just a hint of caramel. It is an excellent vape on its own; light, refreshing and sweet. I like to vape it as a palate cleanser. It also a great flavor to mix with. Its pairs well with Caramel Candy, Cinnamon, Cranberry, Black Currant, Ginger, Hazelnut, Mango and Maple. My personal favorite? Red Apple, Caramel Candy and Hazelnut! I would recommend this flavor for those that vape Caramel Apple, Green Apple, Double Apple and/or Apple Rings.
RY4 is short for Ruyan #4 and is a very pleasant tobacco flavor. It combines the flavor profiles of tobacco, caramel and vanilla. The tobacco is mild and understated and pairs well with the hints of caramel and vanilla. I love how when I vape this flavor I taste the tobacco on the inhale and the caramel and vanilla on the exhale. The flavor is pleasant when vaped fresh, but is best after it has been steeped for 3 to 4 weeks. It is a good on its own, but also pairs well with Caramel Candy, French Vanilla and Madagascar Vanilla. If you currently enjoy vaping 555, Vanilla Tobacco and/or Peach Tobacco this sweet tobacco may be right up your alley.
Fruity Juice Gum
This sweet and fruity candy vape is based off that juicy fruit gum so many of us enjoyed as kids. But instead of that amazing fruit explosion disappearing after a few chews like the gum this flavor packs that fruity punch the entire time you vape it. It is great for satisfying those candy cravings. Vape it its own or enhance the fruit flavor by mixing a little fruit in there! I adore adding a bit of Mango, Peach or Lime to kick it up to the next level. For those that cannot get enough of that fruity gum flavor trying blending with our Zebra Stripe Gum flavor. If you regularly vape Zebra Stripe Gum, Melon Baller, Spring Break and/or Spurberry try adding this flavor to your rotation.
Warning: This flavor has been reported to damage plastic tanks.
Hazelnut spread is a delicious, nutty vape. When this flavor is vaped fresh is has a strong roasted hazelnut flavor and as it steeps it morphs into a roasted hazelnut flavor with chocolate undertones. It reminds me of my everything should have Nutella on it phase I had during college. Perfect for those looking for those that enjoy a savory sweet vape. But what really makes this flavor is amazing is all the possible combinations for vaping! It pairs well with any berry as well as Whipped Cream, Plum, Honey, Sweet Cream, and Vanilla Ice Cream. Looking for a particularly wondrous combination? How about Raspberry, Hazelnut Spread and Whipped Cream?! If you can’t get enough of our Hazelnut, Udderly Nuts, Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate and/or Peanut Butter juice I would strongly recommend sampling Hazelnut Spread.
Mt Baker Vapor Spearmint has been in my vaping rotation since I started vaping. It is a clean, crisp, minty and refreshing vape with just a touch of sweetness. I particularly enjoy vaping it as a palate cleanser or after I have eaten; it makes my mouth feel instantly fresh and clean! It reminds me of Spearmint Gum. It is great for enhancing other juices! Try mixing it with tart fruit flavors like Orange or Cranberry or combine with Wintergreen, Candy Cane, Extreme Ice, Twin Mint Gum and/or Menthol for an extra minty concoction. I enjoy adding a few drops of Spearmint to juices to add just a hint of mint. Do you enjoy vaping Wintergreen, Candy Cane, Twin Mint Gum, Extreme Ice and/or Menthol? Well, I think it’s time you give Spearmint a try.
Live long and vape!
With so much out there these days it can be overwhelming to find the right e-cig set-up, so let’s talk about the three classes of electronic cigarettes we carry here at Mt Baker Vapor; the miniature (mini), the mid-size and the advanced personal vaporizer (APV). Hopefully, this will help steer you towards the best model for your vaping needs. We will also continue to update the post as our starter kits and/or hardware change.
Terms to Know
*Heads: end-fittings such as tanks, clearomizers, cartomizers, atomizers, rdas, drip tips, etc.
The mini or regular size electronic cigarette is usually the first model of e-cigarette new converts try. They are similar in size and feel to a regular cigarette and are the lowest cost. Perfect for those that want to try vaping, but are not yet ready to commit. They are also an excellent choice for individuals who want a discrete vaping experience. These models work using a 2 piece system, a battery and a cartomizer. All of our mini models are either a 510 connection.
1. Looks and feel like a regular cigarette
2. Small and discrete
3. Automatic and manual models available
4. Lowest cost
5. Parts can be mixed and matched
1. Smoktech 510 Dual Coil Automatic Starter Kit
2. Smoktech 510 Dual Coil Manual Starter Kit
The mid-size electronic cigarette is about the size of a cigar and is most common set-up and/or back up set-up in the world of vaping. They produce more vapor and have a longer battery life then their miniature counterpart. These models can also use a wide range of tanks and heads. Most mid-size models are based on a 510 or eGo thread type and fit. These models can also use low resistance devices for increased vapor production. *Do not forget to refer to your Vaping Power Chart when using low resistance devices.
1. Reasonable start up cost
2. Large selection of tanks and heads
3. Longer battery life
4. Only about the size of a cigar
5. Increased vapor production
1. SmokTech eGo Battery + Clearomizer
Advanced personal vaporizers (APVs) or mods are for the advanced electronic cigarette user. They are any model that employs user replaceable batteries and/or has a function not available in a mini or mid-size e-cigarette. There two main classes of APVs: the tubular shaped mod or the box shaped mod. These models mostly use a 3.7 volt lithium ion rechargeable battery which results in more vapor production and a considerably extended battery life. In addition, many APVs include advanced functions and features such as a integral liquid feed, digital readout, variable voltage and electronic control. We recommend these models for experienced vapors only.
1. Highest amount of vapor production
2. Extended battery life
3. Advanced functions and features
4. Solid construction
1. Innokin iTaste 134
2. Innokin iTaste SVD
3. Smoktech Natural

Vapor. Puffy cumulonimbus clouds high in the sky. The ethereal fog clinging to the rolling moors on a cool morning in Scotland. The mist rolling down the hillsides high in the cascades near beautiful Mount Baker. It’s clean, it’s brisk, and, for a select few E Cig enthusiasts, it’s a flavorful and more satisfying alternative to traditional cigarettes.
The traditional “Analog” cigarette experience is something that has become somewhat archaic. It requires striking flint against stone in order to achieve a spark. That spark sets alight a small gas flame, that is then used to ignite a combustible paper cylinder, inside which is rolled a loosely packed collection of chemically-treated shredded plant matter. After a short period of inhaling combusted particulate (along with god knows how many assorted chemicals), you are left with nothing but ashes. Walk along any city in the world and you will find the remnants of this outdated ritual. Cigarette butts littering the gutters and sidewalks of streets and alleyways. For many, this has become a part of life. Habit gives way to necessity, and expenses mount as a pack purchased at a time becomes two, two become four, and before long, a carton at a time is the most cost effective way to keep up the ritual.
Although seemingly innocent, this ritual is not without its casualties. Before long you will begin to notice them. Burns on carpets and upholstery. Small holes innocuously popping up in various articles of clothing. Butts piling up in half empty bottles, stagnating in some forgotten liquid, producing a vile slurry. Breathing becomes heavier. A nagging cough develops that you just can’t shake. Flavors begin to lose their sharpness… At the edge of it all is the ritual, still compelling you to continue.
You’ve no doubt heard of them, these “E Cigarettes.” They’ve come a long way from the dubious mall kiosks of the past, and they have truly come into their own. You can pick up a standard “E Cig” at most corner drugstores, or even your local gas station now. There is nothing wrong with purchasing one of these basic kits, and you could definitely be happier for it, but you’ve only just scratched the surface. There is an endless array of possibilities that are now open before you. At the heart and soul of “Vaping,” as it’s known, is customization. You are not limited to a simple “cigarette” shape, with the battery and cartridge, but you can have anything you want.
The main component of an E Cig or Vaporizer (Vape) is the “Mod.” The Mod is the body inside which the battery is placed. There is a nearly limitless selection of Mods available, including cigar-shaped mods, traditional tobacco pipe-style mods, and a plethora of custom mods that are only limited by your imagination. Mods can also allow you to increase or decrease the intensity of your vapor, by varying the amount of voltage that is applied to the heating coil. This leads to the next component of your standard E Cig: the atomizer. At the core, an atomizer is a basic heating element that turns the “E Liquid” or “E Juice” into sweet, glorious vapor. An atomizer can come in many different forms as well, from an atomized cartridge or “Cartomizer” that you will find in the gas station-style prepacked E Cigs, to a Tank style atomizer, commonly referred to as a “Clearomizer.” These tanks and cartomizers can be mixed and matched to taste, in order to produce a more unique experience that is tailored to you. Finally, there is the E Juice. E Juice is, arguably, the most important part of the vaping experience. E Juice is where your vapor comes from. You can pick nearly any flavor under the sun! From traditional flavors like your favorite Tobacco blends, mints, fruits or candies; to more exotic affairs like bacon or hot peppers, you will never be want for a new experience. With options like these, you are bound to find your own personal favorite. You can even customize your preferred level of nicotine, whether you’d like to step down to quit entirely, or just make the transition, either way you’re doing yourself a favor.
