Sweet spot is your very own vaping nirvana discovered only through trial and error of mizing various juices with the right atomizer and battery. Dripping is another popular term used when a vaper drops a few liquid into the bridge before vaping. They say this process enhances the vaping experience because there are no filters or filler in the whole process and makes the flavor a little bit tastier. Flooding is something not good. This happens when there is too much liquid in the tank and no air passed by to vaporize the liquid. It sucks as they say when this happens. Modder is a person who likes to build their own e-cigarettes. Dipping is when a vaper exposes or removes the bridge atomizer and dips it directly into the e-juice. So, when a vaper does this they are “dippers”. All day vape or adv is the vaper’s favorite e-juice flavour that he can vape all day without being consumed by it.
