Batch Codes & Best Before Dates

We treat batch numbers and expiry / best before dates very seriously at Record Vapes. We want to make sure your e-juice is as close to peak flavor as possible.  We go above and beyond government requirements and take extra steps to ensure your e juice is received as close to top flavor as possible.
  First off, all ingredients are logged in and given an expiry date.  Every batch we make, we record the ingredients used along with their quantities and logged batch code.  Our internal system will tell us when a particular ingredient is past 11 months old.  At 12 months expiring ingredients are replaced.  These ingredients (with the exception of nicotine) by themselves have a shelf life of up to 3 years but we prefer 1 year.  When we buy ingredients, we typical purchase a 6 month supply to avoid too much waste.
   We make each flavor batches of 500ml to 4 litres depending on its average sales.  Most (80%) flavors are pre-made and steeped in 0,3,6 and 12mg in containers. Less popular fl…

How To DIY E-juice With Record Vapes and Save Money

How To DIY E-juice With Record Vapes and Save Money    Record Vapes now offers its most popular flavors in One-Shots.One-Shots are the flavoring component of a completed e-juice bottle.The other components are Vegetable Glycerin (VG), Propylene Glycol (PG) and Nicotine (NIC) which in our case, is suspended in VG.All these ingredients, including empty bottles are available at Record Vapes for purchase online.    Outside of the ingredients and bottles, you will need either syringes for measuring if you wish to choose to mix the 4 components by volume, or a scale capable of 0.00 mg which are readily available at places like Amazon for $10-$20.Mixing by weight is more accurate and the “Suggested USE” listed on our One-Shots are by volume.A dark and cool cabinet is needed for proper DIY’ing as well as nitrile gloves to protect yourself from the NIC.    Please note, these are guidelines and not a complete guide to mixing your own e-juice.There are risks and in no way will Record Vapes be r…

E-Juice - Colors & Steeping

E-Juice - Colors, Steeping & Expiration

 If you have ever wondered what causes your e-juice to become darker and what it means ?

Let's discuss.  E-juice is made from Vegetable Glycerin (VG), Propylene Glycerol (PG), Nicotine and Flavorings. VG & PG are colorless.  Flavorings tend to have a light coloring but there are a few that are extremely dark.  Freebase nicotine tends to have a light pinkish or yellow color and salt nicotine tends to have a light yellow or brown color.  Depending on the ingredients, the day your e-juice is made it will be somewhat colorless.

Most labs make the flavorings ahead of production, if the recipe is say strawberry and banana, the strawberry and banana flavorings are made ahead of time.  When they get an order for strawberry-banana, they take the pre-mix of flavorings (or one-shot) and add the vg, pg and nic into the final bottle.  This means the e-juice tends to be less colorful or more clear. 

It is important to know that all e-juice require…

Replay

Replay is a new product offering from Record Vapes.  Replay allows customers to select 120ml bottles from our collection of previous custom orders and some flavors from the past.  It also includes some seasonal flavors offered in previous years.

   From a list of close to 200, we narrowed this down to 50 based on ingredients available.  Customers can choose their preferred Nic Level (mg/ml) and VG/PG Ratio.

   Purchasing a Replay will delay an order from shipping by roughly one day.  This day is needed to make the e-juice and allow for a steep period whereas the e-juice is heated to allow any alcohols or perfumes to escape prior to capping the bottle.  These alcohols / perfumes are present in only some ingredients and are normal and as safe as normal.

   As orders received by 2pm are shipped the same day, in some situations an order including a Replay may not delay shipping if the ingredients permit it and the order is received the previous afternoon.

  Final note, all e-juice req…

FULL VAPE AHEAD
We have a lot is store for November.  Building on a successful October, where we saw another positive monthly sales growth, we will continue to add onto and refresh our lineup.  Despite the continued media misinformation of vaping been portrayed as a negative, we know it is a very positive alternative to smoking and continue to work hard to keep our customers interested and off the combustibles.


In October, I ran a giveaway on my personal Facebook page offering a pod system and e-juice to one smoker who was ready to quit.  Here is what the winner had to say after 2 weeks.
