Thunderbird Vapes carries a wide selection of personal vaporizers by trusted brands Aspire to SMOK and many in between. Visit us in person at 250 West Broadway to see our full range of starter kits, devices, tanks, mods and accessories. Our online shop offers a portion of our full product range.
Starter Kits generally come with a tank, matching battery or mod, replacement coils and charger. These kits have come a long way in a short time and often offer the best bang for your buck. Today there are numerous options for those new to vaping or looking to upgrade their rig. These range from small pocket-friendly pod systems and simple to use vape pens to larger removable battery mods with sub ohm tanks. If you are looking to start vaping or for a brand new set up, ready to go kits are a great option. See examples here.
Tanks & Rebuildables
With the exception of All-In-One devices, the vape pens, mods and kits that Thunderbird Vapes carries are compatible with 510 and ego threaded atomizers. This makes upgrading or replacing tanks stress-free. Whether you prefer mouth-to-lung inhales that more closely mimic the sensation of smoking or the larger clouds of sub ohm vaping there are an ever growing number of tank options.
Most tanks have dedicated replacement coils (these are the heating element and are usually proprietary to the tank system) but for some you can build your own coils. These are either RTAs (Rebuildable Tank Atomizers) or tanks, which come with an RBA base which one screws in place of the stock coils. Ask about our handcrafted house coils or sticks!
RDAs (Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers), also know as drippers, are for the more experienced vaper. Most of these are only available from our physical store. Thunderbird Vapes also stocks coil jigs, ceramic tweezers, various wires, organic Japanese cotton, and other builder's tools.
The term Mod comes from "modified". These days most of the mods you'll encounter are regulated mods, meaning they have internal chips and circuitry to regulate the power output. Most of these devices take rechargeable batteries but some, like the iStick 40W and Eleaf iPower, have built in batteries.
Unregulated mods have little to no protections - these are devices for advanced users only and not recommended for beginners or novice vapers - and come in either tube or box styles. We no longer sell unregulated mods but are always happy to see what you might have and chat about them.
Even if you're working with a starter kit there are ways to make your rig stand out from the rest. Drip tips are largely interchangeable and can greatly enhance the look and feel of tanks and attys. Travel and carry cases keep your device handy, protected and confine any leaks from tanks or eJuice bottles. We also carry empty Chubby Gorilla unicorn bottles if you aren't a fan of the glass dripper bottles.
Replacement glass for our more popular tanks along with replacement seals help extend the life span of your vape kit. Looking for a part? Ask us, even if we don't stock it, it just might be in our salvage box.
