The gaming and vaping market has struck gold over the past five years and people are now seeking gadgets that combine the two very sociable activities to form the perfect hobby.
I myself am an avid gamer and I vape whilst I play. In any RPG (role-playing game) I play, I will see if I can somehow incorporate vaping into my character as I feel it adds a sense of mysticism to the experience and also fuels the immersion factor. Don’t get me wrong, there are some instances where this isn’t possible, and I’ll simply take a hit from my vape pen during a loading screen just to joyfully pass the time.
Sort of like the Caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland…
Anyway, with that being said, I’ve found some of the most helpful and quirky gadgets that will optimise your vape-gaming experience.
Whilst not initially linked to gaming, the phone offers a service that enhances vape usability through a series of monitoring services, customisation tabs, and flavour identifiers. It’s also a phone, so yes, you can make calls! Jupiter is shared between two batteries, one powers the phone, one powers the vaping. It’s a 3G-ready phone that runs on a dated version of Google’s Android operating system.
You are able to monitor your flavour, battery voltage, plan your progress and more all on one screen. Whilst this won’t directly enhance your gaming experience, it will certainly make vaping more accessible mid-game for example. Vaping can be very fiddly and sometimes a nightmare to change settings halfway through a game, and the Vaporcade looks to challenge this troubles.
The phone is also able to track your puff counts and favourite flavours, and offers you the chance to review your vaping history via its usage graph and analysis system.
Customise the phone to fit your gaming needs, you may find that your regular settings may not match the way you game and Jupiter allows you to easily customise your settings with little to no struggle or fidgety complication.
This gadget is small, efficient, and subtly brilliant. The purpose of the Mouse Bungee is to keep the mouse cord off the ground whilst gaming. Many gamers feel that their clunky mouse cable frequently hinders their gaming experience by getting in the way. The gadget works by threating the mouse cord through a raised spring arm, preventing tangles and stopping drag for a smoother mouse swiping experience.
It also incorporates anti-slip feet for heavy-duty stability. A weight is installed in the base’s centre along with anti-sleep feet on the underside. This means that the Bungee remains stable no matter how aggressive your mouse swipes are. It also looks good and adds a sleek finish to your gaming station!

Imagine vaping outside and having the ability to seamlessly start playing a game or app by the swipe of your finger. It would take some getting use to and you may look a bit strange, but the concept is interesting nonetheless.
