"Vape" made Lake Superior State's 41st Annual List of Banished Words--terms and phrases that ran rampant in 2015, and that they deem overused, irritating, or just plain stupid. The voting panel wishes these words would die out along with the year that allowed their overuse. Other selections include "price point," "secret sauce," and "break the internet." What do you think? Agree?
The word "vape" doesn't really bother me. When you're using a vaporizer you're not really smoking, and "vape" is short and easy to say. There's no kitschy alliteration in it like price point and secret sauce and, more importantly, it wasn't coined by a Kardashian. At least I don't think. But regardless of how you feel about the word, if you enjoy the act of vaping, CloudV Enterprises has a little black dress of a vaporizer for you. The Phantom Mini is a sleek, modest e-cigarette that won't call attention to your vaping self in a crowd. It holds up to 0.3 ounces of dry herbs and functions without combustion at your choice of 374, 410, or 436 degrees F. A locked-in mouthpiece ensures your experience will suffer no dismemberment.
The Phantom Mini measures 6.7" long and 0.83" tall. Its package includes your choice of black or grey vaporizer, a cleaning brush, a packing tool, tweezers, and a USB charging cable. It also includes a 38% discount for a limited time from Dude Exclusives.
