Admittedly, the Malboro Man is one fine looking gentleman, but seriously, smoking is so not hot. It’s a real drag—literally; a nasty habit that certainly doesn’t help long and short-term health and hotness. Although you’ve heard every anti-smoking sentiment time and again, the fact is, they’re true—all of them. The smell, the taste (especially for a non-smoker who locks lips with a smoker), the harmful effects smoking has on those around you and the long-term financial costs, among many other factors, make it hard to ignore the reality and lifelong risks.
Obviously, the ultimate goal for every person is to live smoke-free, but quitting cold turkey can be a set-up for failure. For many, the solution has been to trade toxic “cancer sticks” for vapor devices or e-cigarettes instead. With the advanced vapor device technology and interesting flavors, dulling the habit can be more possible than before.
Brought to life by a brother-sister team on December 6, 2013, Valor Vapor sells cutting-edge vapor devices and a vast assortment of out-sourced tobacco flavors and original flavors formulated in-house.
This holiday season, Valor Vapor CEO, Keith Higgins, says there is a vapor device and flavor to suit every preference. He recommends that beginners select from one of the three vapor kits: the Silver Kit, Gold Kit or Platinum Kit. Each kit comes with what Higgins calls, “raw essentials,” which include Smok brand batteries, Kanger brand tanks, replacement coils, chargers and bottles of “juice” (or flavors).
Higgins says the kits range from $45 to $75, and purchasing a 15 to 30 milliliter bottle of flavored juice is both affordable and a great way to attract a vapor user. Offering more than 150 flavors ranging from the standard vanilla, chocolate, strawberry to fruity guava and mango flavors to their award-winning Monkey nuts—a mix of Bavarian cream and banana nut bread with hints of vanilla—Valor Vapor houses industry experts that will help you select the right gifts for your special someone.
“The benefit of selecting different tobacco flavors is to mix it up and keep it fresh because 90 percent of the people who are using e-cigarettes are trying to quit cigarettes,” Higgins says. “Having a lot of flavors caters to people across the spectrum who all have different palates. It allows people to further disassociate themselves with traditional tobacco flavors.”
In less than one year of business, Valor Vapor has experienced such massive success in Tempe that they plan to extend their reach with a second location off I-17 and Thunderbird Road.
