Important Hammer of God Box Mod Information

I wanted to personally thank you if you purchased a Hammer of God box mod by Vaperz Cloud.  We are really happy with how it turned out and so far everyone has had nothing but great things to say about it.  Since this was the very first run of these box mods, we are aware that there may be some minor kinks that need to be worked out.  Just like the Buddha RDAs, we plan on making improvements and tweaks with future runs, so your feedback and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

As these boxes are now getting in hands and being put through its paces, we wanted to let you know of a few minor issues that have been reported to us.  These are not wide-spread issues, but we wanted you to be aware so you can pre-check your mods and possibly troubleshoot if you’re experiencing similar issues.

  1. We have noticed that some of the magnets that hold the panels on may fall out and need a little lock-tight.  This doesn’t affect use at all, but if you lose or are missing any magnets, please let us know and we will get you some replacements right away.
  2. A couple of people have reported a "rattling" sound in the upper chamber.  This has been due to a loose piece of glue and can simply be extracted by removing the black panel on the inside of the device. Again, not a major flaw, just remove the piece of glue and no more rattle.
  3. We've also seen that some of the LED displays are not working (or stop working).  What we've found is that the nut on the inside of the 510 connection is loose and when someone screws on or off the atty, the entire 510 connection will spin, disconnecting the wires that is soldered to the bottom of the 510.  We have also heard of this happening if you tighten your atty down too much.  The box mod will still continue to function properly, but these wires powers the LED.  It's a simple fix but if you are not comfortable soldering a wire, I ask that you contact me right away so we can take care of it for you.  If you send it back to me, we will fix it for you and return it ASAP at no cost.
  4.  It has also come to our attention that a few people have experienced some battery sparking/flame issues with their Hammer of God box mods.  We have found that this happens when the edge of the top contact plate snags the edge of battery.  Please be careful when inserting your batteries - this should not be a major issue if you use caution and insert them correctly (positive in first).
  5. We discovered a design flaw that we will fix in the next round.  If you screw your adjustable 510 all the way to the left (down), it extends too long and touches the firing switch.  This is important to note because it could cause auto-firing.  If you experience this, check your 510 - otherwise call us and we will set up a return so we can fix it for you.
These are issues we've seen and  while it's only on a few of them, we want you to know that if you bought one and its not functioning properly, to please contact us ASAP so we can fix them.

While these have been isolated instances, we also feel it's important to pass along some important safety information to everyone, so you can continue to enjoy your Hammer of God box mod without any safety issues.

Important Safety Information

  • Always use reliable, authentic, fully charged batteries in your device. 
  • Replace all four batteries before the voltage without an atty attached displays 3.65v
  • Always use the same brand and type of battery.  Don’t mix and match.
  • Always insert the batteries into the device POSITIVE first.  You may experience a spark if you insert the negative first
  • When not in use for long periods of time, remove the batteries from your Hammer of God box mod
  • If you notice any flames or sparks, remove the batteries immediately and dispose of them properly

7/3/15 - UPDATE

Vaping Waffles: Not just a flavor of juice

Hey it's your old pal Zootie Vapors here to talk to you a bit about Vaping Waffles.  Now I know what you're thinking, "Yeah, I've had that flavor".  But I'm not talking about the kind you drip on your coils, I'm talking about the newest form of prize raffles to come to the vaping world.

Some of you know what I'm talking about.  Hell you're probably dropping $5-$10 a week on waffles as we speak. Maybe you've even been lucky enough to win one or three.  But let me explain to those out there who don't know what I'm talking about.  Sit back, enjoy a nice vape (waffle flavored if you're so inclined) and I'll be back in a minute.

Now where was I, oh yes, vape waffle.

So there's this thing called the Internet and on the Internet is a place where people go to chat and look at pictures of cats and chicks in yoga pants, some call it Facebook or online message forums (used to be BBS back in the day, but I don't want to date myself).  Anyway, on these sites people who vape are holding a "raffle" of sorts.  The raffle or "waffle" as it's known, have a limited number "slots" available.  This number is often kept low to increase the odds and make the waffle more popular because there are higher chances to win.  When all slots have been claimed, a number is drawn at random and the person with that number wins the waffle item.  Each slot usually costs a couple bucks or more depending on the total value of the "prize" and depending on the rules, you can "buy" as many slots as you like.  Very similar to Superbowl pools where you would buy a square of your choosing, with a waffle, you can pick what number slot you want.

Put down your money and hope it lands on your number.

So if you have a few bucks burning a hole in your pocket or if you like to gamble and want a chance to win some cool vape gear, then a waffle might just be for you.  Paying $5-10 for a device that costs $100 is a great deal.  It adds the element and excitement of random luck.  There is also no risk for the person hosting a waffle either because the value of the item is calculated into the total cost per slot.

It's really quite fun.

So how would you like to try your luck with a Zootie Waffle?  I will be putting items up on the 3rd Wednesday of each month and we'll be kicking our first one off on February 18th, 2015.  Simply Follow me on Facebook to get the details first.  Because most waffles will only have 20 to 50 slots available, you need to get in quick before they're all gone.

Good Luck and Vape On!

Vape and hug your mother!

I stopped to visit a friend yesterday.  He is opening Ocelot Brewery in Dulles, VA next month and it's been a while since I've seen the progress of the build-out.  They are a vape-friendly business, so of course we were all sharing some vape flavors and catching up on old times.

Another friend of theirs was there and I noticed he was vaping on a starter kit e-cig, so we started talking about vaping and how it has helped him to quit smoking.  Then he said the most profound thing to me.

Now we all know the immediate benefits of quitting smoking.  We chatted about how after a night of drinking and smoking a pack or two throughout the evening, we would wake up with lung pain, hacking and coughing.. just feeling generally shitty.  Since vaping, this is no longer something we experience.  Also, the fact that our clothes don't smell anymore, we can vape indoors without the smoke permeating everything we own.  Not to mention reducing the harmful chemicals, tar and other byproducts of cigarette smoke that we've been inhaling for years.

But the one thing he said, beyond all of these benefits, was one thing that has no equal.  He started telling me about his mother, who was a immigrant from Vietnam and is deeply rooted in their culture.  He said that the biggest change that vaping has made to his life is he now is no longer embarrassed to hug his mom.  He said when he smoked, he wouldn't hug his mother.  This is the woman that "exploded you from her vagina", he said, "and I wouldn't hug her when I smoked".

Wow, I thought.  This is some deep shit!  Sure, he's now benefiting from all of the reduced health risks, but this is something you cant put a price tag on.  Smoking cigarettes stopped him from doing the one thing that every son (and daughter) should do at every possible opportunity.  Life is too short and at the end of that life, we always wish we had more time to spend with our loved ones.  This transcends just the argument of whether or not it's a safer alternative to smoking.  It has allowed this guy to get back a valuable aspect to life.  It may seem simple, but because of vaping, he has re-established a new loving relationship with his mother.  So if ANYTHING is a reason to quit smoking, this, in my opinion, is the greatest benefit of all.

So I leave you with this: Quit smoking. Vape and Hug Your Mother!
