    Is it the type of gear one uses? Do we define the term by experience or knowledge? Interested in everyone's thoughts.

    Actually I think its experience and knowledge. And someone still willing to learn.

    For me it's anyone who doesn't use stock coils.
    OR
    People who enter competitions to see just how much zero nicotine plumage one can chuck out whilst holding an obscure weightlifting pose.
    Probably the first one though...

    I met my friends 25 year old son the other day.
    He saw my RSQ squonker and asked "Is that a vape or is that a Juul?'

    I'll second @ppeeble , any device that doesn't use stock coils.
    I suppose it would follow that an advanced vaper would use an advanced vape while advanced vaping.

    Cheers

    I’d like to consider advanced vaping as being able to achieve a great vape without fancy wire, 200 watts or dangerously low builds that put the user and our reputation at risk.....but that would probably start an argument.

    So, I’ll just sit here with my .5 ohm single round wire build on a mech squonker and let the “plofessionah vapahs” answer you.

    In my mind, I classify "advanced vaping" as something that is fine tuned by the user to customize their vaping experience to make it better for their personal preference, more than what off the shelf options allow.

    Whether it is building their own coils or mixing their own juices to maximize the performance of the rig they use, any extra effort activities someone may choose to do to make their vaping experience more suitable for themselves classifies as advanced to me. But I seem to have a different perspective on things than most.

    Edit- I should also mention that I classify "advanced vaping" separate from "advanced vaper". Anyone can achieve advanced vaping if they aquire the neccissary hardware (coils, juice, ect) from an advanced vaper (someone who has enough vaping knowledge to produce/manufacture advanced vaping gear safely, and has the knowledge to safely use said gear).

    It used to be that anything that wasn't a cig-alike was called an Advanced Personal Vaporizer (APV). The difference was ability to control the output with adjustable settings. That term has fallen into disuse since mods have been separated from their atomizers and tanks.

    I'd draw the line at whether you're dependent on one manufacturer for the consumables to keep your hardware functioning. That would rule out AIO devices and anything that uses pre-built coil assemblies. I'd say DIY juice makers also qualify as advanced regardless of the equipment. And mech mod users since they need to use their wits instead of relying on software protection logic.

    Well let me think about this potential can of worms; let's see - well now, I can build coils, I can work Ohms Law, I can operate a mech device and in four years I haven't so far been able to blow myself up and I mix my own juice.

    But I can't be an "Advanced Vaper", because having been all round the houses I've come back to my Nautilus Minis and my GS Airs with their oh so not advanced premade coils and olde fashioned tecknolology.

    Mind you I always liked that quote, "I wouldn't want to be in any club that'd accept me as a member!"

    Enjoy yourselves with this one guys and gals!!!

    I may catch heat for this, but what the heck. I don't like the term "advanced vaper".

    If you are vaping, you are a vaper, period. People use big battery or little battery devices, use expensive or cheap equipment, use different coils - whether bought or made, use different ohm levels, use different nic and pg/vg levels, use different everything! lol Who are we to say who is more "advanced".

    You can be a novice or a newb to vaping, but once you get the hang of it and then find what works best for you, that's it. You're a vaper - that's it, that's all.

    Well having given the matter further deep thought and consideration, plus having examined the question from all angles for at least five minutes I think I would define the hypothetical, nay proverbial, and possibly even legendary Advanced Vaper thus :-

    "One who has vaped enough and advanced in vaping knowledge and skills to the point where he or she has become advanced enough not to bother about being advanced or not."

    Having thoroughly exhausted my remaining few brain cells I shall now advance smartly to the cocktail cabinet and mix a large gin and tonic for my wife and myself!

    "Advanced vaping" is not a way to classify one vaper as better than the other. I find myself in a position where no off the shelf products satisfy my needs. I actually see it as you are one of the very lucky few that can get the vape you are looking for from stock supplies. I have to put forth so much more effort to active the same satisfying feeling you get from your chosen gear. So who is really the winner here? In this situation I'm thinking its not the guy that has to spend all that extra time to achive the same thing you get in minutes.

    I can't say it any better than what @Anise and others have already posted.

    Yes agreed, building can take vaping to another level. Is that advanced? IDK. Learning, and always having that desire to learn even more. Utilizing what is learned in a safe manner. Knowing there are no dumb questions (within reason) and being able to ask when you really don't know something.
    Does any of that define "advanced vaping" IDK.

    That's my answer, and for the moment, I'm sticking to it! :lol:

    Ya all might could maybe enlighten me...:pop:...so I'll pay attention with interest.
