What is vaping?

Vaping is a smokeless, portable, and discrete method of consuming dry herbs, wax concentrates, oils, and e-liquids that involves heating the portable vapes contents just enough to release vapor but without introducing it to a flame.

How Does Vaping Work?

Portable Vaporizers work by heating its contents to the point of releasing vapor but not to the point of combustion, allowing you to capture the desired effects without the harmful toxins that come with traditional smoking. Vaporizers use two methods of heating: conductive and convective.

Conductive Heating

Conductive heating works by placing the vaping contents directly onto a metal surface, most often a solid plate, coil or screen. The metal element is then heated to an ideal vaporization temperature, directing heat throughout the chamber and converting the chambers content into vapor for smooth inhalation.

Convection Heating

With convection heating, the vaping content doesn’t actually come in contact with a heating element. Instead, hot air is produced and once the air has reached the ideal temperature, it is moved by either a fan or inhalation to the segment of the vape containing the vaping content, heating it and converting it into vapor without charring the substance.

The Benefits of Vaping over Traditional Smoking Methods:


Vaping reduces the number of carcinogens you introduce to your body compared to traditional combustion smoking because it does not cause combustion. Carcinogens are the substances capable of causing cancer in living tissue.


While vaping doesn’t remove all odors from dry herbs, it does severely reduce the smell and smoke, making it perfect for public use like during concerts and outdoor festivals.

Cost Effective

While vaping does require an initial investment, it will save you money in the long-term because you’ll be able to receive the same physical and psychological results from smaller amounts of your favorite dry herbs, wax concentrates, and oils.

Heightened Effects

Vaping is cleaner, healthier and less wasteful than traditional smoking methods, so it’s not surprising that when you remove the excess substances, you’ll experience heightened effects from your favorite vaping materials.

How to Choose A Portable Vaporizer

Consider Location

If you only ever smoke at home, a table vape may be the best option for you. Table vapes are larger and pack a much bigger punch when it comes to vapor production. If you often smoke on the go or prefer something a little smaller, a portable vape pen should be your go to. These personalizable, portable and clean little machines are perfect for use in public because they are discrete and can fit in any pocket or purse.

What You Smoke

Wax, oil and dry herb vapes are all built differently and are not interchangeable; however, there are some vapes that are multipurpose with the purchase of different, inexpensive chambers.

With that said, do NOT use dry herbs in a chamber that has already been used for wax and vise versa. This will result in a messy, gunked up, less effective vape. Simply purchase a new chamber to keep things clean and working correctly.


Just like how people have a preference for large dogs or small dogs, everyone has a preferred vape pen size. At NY Vape Shop we offer a wide range of sizes ensuring you’ll find something to fit your style.


We believe style should never be compromised. Most of our best-selling vapes come in multiple colors and patterns that will match anyone’s aesthetic. Even better, if you don’t like the solid color/pattern look, you can purchase each component separately to mix and match colors and patterns. Just imagine: you can have a vape in the colors of your favorite college or sports team!
