I don’t think another e juice company or vape store has been so obvious as Mt Baker Vapor about the inconveniences caused by regulation or what their aims are in light of recent legislation. A letter from President Daniel Swaine outlines their commitment to customers and the changes they are going through, asking for patience.
What anyone needs patience for is unclear but perhaps slower order fulfillment is the problem currently. Their website welcomes customers, both new and old, to the “New” Mt Baker Vapor but anything unfamiliar is going on behind the scenes. Everything on the outside appears as it always has.
Goals at Mt Baker Vapor
Mt Baker Vapor has laid out aims for the future. One is to continue fighting for vapors and their right to a smoke-free alternative. Political activism is in the cards, but this is not set to change their policy to always treat customers with respect and support.
Mt Baker Vapor is working to comply with FDA regulations, so there is an implication here that some components were missing prior to legislation; maybe some good changes which will benefit customers, especially new ones who were looking for more transparency about ingredients and mixing facilities.
New products are in development which makes me wonder if Mt Baker Vapor will launch a new line, ushering in a clean slate and a new day post-regulation. There will also be a better age-verification method online, something that is very difficult to institute, but Mt Baker Vapor is working on meeting that challenge.
Website at Mt Baker Vapor
The website has always been well organized and informative. I like the way they sub-head things and break each category down further once you arrive at a new page.
The initial page asks you whether you want starter kits, nicotine juice, vape devices, atomizers, tanks, accessories, DIY stuff, or new items. Numerous brands are listed such as NJoy, House of Hybrids, Aspire, 13th Floor Elevapors, and Boge.
You are directed at the bottom to their average star rating of 8.5/10 although where these come from is a mystery. Look up the blog, affiliate marketing, careers, Mt Baker Vapor abroad, or how to get free e-juice.
Endorsements are explained. This is a program in which participants promote Mt Baker Vapor on social media at least four times monthly in exchange for discounts. Buy Gift Certificates, create a wish list, or take part in store events.
The calendar for their Lynden, WA, store shows a regular coil building session on Wednesday afternoons at 2 pm PST and also a single Friday night poker game.
Starter Kits Available
Two years ago this list would have shown just eGos and that was the way with almost all vape stores. Now it’s common to see starter kits which are really bundles for all levels of vaping. Although the eGo is still represented with the EVOD by Kanger, Joyetech’s A10 isn’t the eGo of old.
It’s a one-button device, but an all-in-one sub-ohm tube mod nonetheless. Mt Baker Vapor also features an Innokin iTaste MVP 2.0, Innokin Express (basic) kit, the Joyetech Cuboid, and an iStick 60W by Eleaf. Shop by price if you are on a budget. A Kanger EVOD double kit costs around $30, just 50% more than a single, both of which are excellent prices.
Vaping Devices, Not Kits
Some of these items are also featured under “Vaping Devices” but without tanks and coils. Here you will find the Council of Vapor Mini Volt, an iPV5 by Pioneer4You, Sigelei’s fancy Touch T150, and the updated MVP Pro.
Single eGo batteries are listed as well. If an item is nearly sold out, Mt Baker Vapor frames it in yellow and adds the words “Almost Gone.” When it is sold out, the frame is red and the words are also stamped over this item. Mt Baker Vapor isn’t keeping up with the latest releases but carries popular models.
In this section, Mt Baker Vapor refers to cartomizers and atomizers with rebuildable coil decks. These include RDAs and RTAs. The Boge 510 carto is here plus a pretty Wotofo Lush, Wismec Theorem, and the Thump MFG. Selection is pretty good.
Here you will find both sub ohm and regular tanks. These come from House of Hybrids (Kabuki), Innokin (iSub), and more. Kanger and Aspire are well represented by the Subtank, T35, Nautilus, and others. UD’s Goblin V1.2, the Stentorian Steam Engine by Wotofo, and Smok’s TFV4 join them.
Anything new is also absorbed into its regular category, so you probably stumbled upon it already. The usual items are listed under accessories like spare parts, t-shirts, cases, chargers, and lanyards. Where DIY is concerned, customers will mostly buy their flavorings and base here. Bottles are also on sale, but not droppers, syringes, or beakers.
Alternative brands are sold here, but look at bestsellers by Mt Baker Vapor. Their fruity Hawk Sauce has received almost 3,000 reviews and nearly 5 stars to remain their top-seller. Fruit/menthol Thug juice remains second with over 2,000 reviews followed by Extreme Ice, cinnamon Roll, and Green Apple.
They also have a YouTube channel with q number of videos. Here is the welcome video for their channel.
