Welcome to Guide To Vaping’s Best of 2017 online polling event! Each year the vaping community comes together to participate in an online annual event that allows vapers to vote on who and what they thought were the best in the year 2017. If you’re asking yourself why you should participate, we have several reasons to share. This event brings the community together, it gives vapers something they can collectively take part in, it acts as a guide for vapers helping them find the best products, vendors and groups, and shows recognition to those who go above and beyond in the vaping industry. To those who take part in Guide To Vaping’s “Best of” each year, we thank you!

Guide To Vaping’s Best of 2017


    • I apologize for the error. If you received an error it could be a few things: A) someone in your household has already voted, B) despite the errors, you clicked submit and it still recorded your votes.

  1. How is Facebook considered a vaping forum, when they’ve gone and removed whole groups that had been there for a long time and had large followings?

  2. Call me crazy, but I feel like there should be some expansion on a few categories. Best written blog vs best vlog. Best written publication. Best group (so then you could do Facebook groups or some other “private” group). Just some thoughts for next year!

    • This year I tried going with fewer categories since there are quite a few people that complain about the number of categories to vote in. This person wants this, that person wants that — it’s hard to please everyone. But yes, I agree with you.

      • I’m new to vaping and already have some favs, but… These catagores seem to overlap and don’t seem straight forward. Is the first catagory just someone’s favorite “thing”. I’m comfused… I’d like to vote, but don’t want to mess up either. I’m viewing from a phone, is there a better discription of each catagory somewhere else?

        • There are small descriptions for each category. When I describe the first category “Best of 2017” by telling everyone to choose the best of the year, I would assume they would vote for the best brand, like SMOK, Vandy Vape, Innokin, etc. Instead, they’re voting for forums, people etc. The thing about the voting here is that I’m not a deciding factor on what goes really. As long as it fits into the category, it’s somewhat out of my hands. I try my best not to interfere with the voting process and instead let the vaping community determine who and what was the best for each category. For the best of 2017 category, I explained it as more of a general category, so I guess anything goes on who or what can win. Maybe next year I should make a drop down explaining in better detail what each category was designed for.

  3. Blake, I am unable to press the submit button. I entered with my Facebook account and it wouldn’t give me a button there either. I went back and it said I voted too many times for DJLsb. I’m the only one that will vote from this ISP so I have no clue. Must I do the poll again? I’m sorry to have to bother you with this.

    • Robin, I apologize for the issues you are having. However, everything with the plugin I have had developed is automated. If someone has submitted once already, it tracks the IP and drops a cookie to prevent them from voting a second time. By any means it shouldn’t ever list an entry, saying “you voted too many times for DJLsb”.

  4. I’m pretty sure my vote went through but it was very laggy. I hit submit more then once and got the “you already voted” message. It then timed out and didn’t re-direct me to the results page. Is there a way we can go to the results so we can see them?

  5. I noticed that Vape Wild and VapeWild have not yet been combined and it would be nice to get that done for us newbies. I also had a question to how VapeWild is not a network? I would think they were being world wide and doing all that they do for this comunity. I will also say that it is good to see Vape Wild being #1 because they hands down the best!

  6. Okay, normally I don’t look at the typed in names and when I do, the obvious troll entries don’t really bother me but this year, it’s really grinding my gears to see names like “ni**er nipples” and “ni**ers cum on white girls” and “ching chong”. It’s totally disgusting. Please remove these erroneous and childish entries. They are taking up space.

    Also, I keep seeing complaints about VapeWild not being a vape network, so what constitutes a vape network, according to this organization? Because they definitely do a lot of networking and connecting people through social media channels. I’ve been following them for a while now, and a few others. And their company name has no spaces so I see their entries more than once in the same category.

    Hopefully some of these issues are addressed and cleaned up before you do this next year. This whole process just seems a bit all over the place and not accurately conducted or counted.

    • There isn’t anything wrong with the way this event is conducted. I give participants the opportunity to write in their own entries, instead of myself being the decider of who makes it on these polls and who doesn’t. Giving that opportunity we will, of course, have duplicates, trolls and so on. The only thing I can do to correct this is by updating the polls and fixing them throughout the 1-month event. Please have patience.

      • My apologies Blake. You’re definitely doing a good job. Just wanted to make sure each company was represented fairly and I know there isn’t much you can do about the trolls.

  7. Whenever I see someone vaping, I tell them about vapewild.com. They have the best of everything. Customer service is always helpful, polite and seem to be happy. Their products and prices are great. I’m so glad my friend told me about Vape Wild. I’m happy to share their website with other vapers and even the people who work in the local vape store.

    • Aren’t they just the best? I really love their personable approach and they always take care of me. Don’t get me wrong, there are many other vendors who have won my trust, but they have truly won my heart just by being awesome. You should join their FB group, it’s awesome! Their admins are the coolest people I have encountered online.

  8. Everything lumped together and not specific enough. I dont believe this year’s voting and winners are going to matter in my eyes. Too many ridiculous answers and not enough specific categories.

    • The categories were reduced this year due to last year many participants sharing that there were too many categories. The only thing that can be done is to improve next year by listening to feedback. That said, thank you for yours.

  9. The poll will not accept my vote. Keeps saying custom length is not acceptable…or whatever. Best juice & price – VapeWild. Best vape – VaporTech USA. Everything else, don’t care.

  10. I wonder how a company gets best customer service when they don’t have half the stuff they say they do on their website???? Oh is it because they are the ones sponsoring it?? Guess so what a cheat

    • To each his own. However, I would like to throw out some facts: In 2014 Vapor Authority sponsored the event and didn’t win anything. In 2015 Coil Master sponsored the event and didn’t win anything – this same year Vapor Authority took 2nd place in Best Customer Service. In 2016 VaporFi sponsored the event and didn’t win anything. This year Vapor Authority sponsored the event and participated more than any year prior — I received their newsletters that were sent out to customers/fans, encouraging them to vote, not specifically for them, but to participate. Sponsoring the event doesn’t change the minds of thousands of voters. Participating more than others, growing a loyal following and benefiting from it, that does.
