Is vaping a subculture? Sure, like any group of people, vapers come in all walks of life, with a wide variety of backgrounds, styles, interests and values. Obviously we can’t speak for all vapers, but if you hang around enough vape shops or social groups you will start to see some common threads.
First off, many vapers have a very distinct sense of style. Over the past few years we have seen the lines blur between urban fashion (also known as streetwear), and vaping culture. Urban fashion’s rise coincided with the growing popularity of Hip Hop and R&B. Now, as vaping creates a buzz, vaping’s influence on the style has become quite visible. In recent streetwear fashion shows, you may even notice runway models carrying or wearing vape accessories or vape pens as a prop. Sure, they may be paid to display their products, but make no mistake, this very much reflects the development of vaping culture’s role in shaping the trends of urban fashion. Given the vaping community’s stylish reputation, there’s no denying that looks are as important as anything else when choosing a kit.
In streetwear there are no rules- you can combine any style, print or color to express your personality, as long as what you’re wearing feels comfortable. Really, it makes perfect sense that vapers have adopted and shaped urban fashion; like their attire, one’s vape device is an extension of their personality, and should seamlessly combine style and functionality.
This brings us to our next observation of the vaping community: Vapers love innovation. If you’ve been to any of the aforementioned vape stores or social gatherings you would know that vapers love to share their experiences and impressions with each other. Whether it’s about quality and consistency of nicotine and flavor delivery, or some special high tech feature, it’s clear that most vapers care a lot about what goes on under the hood of their device. As important as style is, it’s useless if there’s no substance to go with it.
Always known for their innovation in their products, VAPORESSO has included their patented Pulse Mode in the XROS NANO, a first for pod systems in the industry. Powered by their AXON chipset, this mode allows for a consistently smooth performance through the whole puff, even at low battery life. One of VAPORESSO’s French partners stated, “The new XROS NANO is truly amazing in its flavor delivery.” As for battery life, the USB-C powered device boasts a 1000 mAh battery capacity, which is enough to get most vapers through the whole day. Another +1 for innovation, vapers can also appreciate that the NANO is fully compatible with other pods in VAPORESSO’s XROS series.If you’ve been in the vaping community for long, chances are you’ve heard of VAPORESSO. Founded in 2015 in Shenzhen, China under their parent company, SMOORE International, VAPORESSO is a company driven by constant innovation and consistent quality. It should come as no surprise then that a company with such track record would also invest in making their products aesthetically pleasing for their customer base.
With the XROS NANO, VAPORESSO has sought to marry the two common threads that unite vapers- a sense of style and appreciation for innovation- in a compact, new and exciting package.
