Now I know I have been only vaping for the past 3 years and hundreds if not thousands of vaping companies come and go. Everything from companies that make ejuice to companies that make devices. This is a tough industry to really get into and stay afloat. The problem has always been FDA regulations from increased taxes to banning certain flavors or just banning them all together. Many companies fell to this and decided to bail. The ones who made the list stuck around and continue to fight for our rights.
This list is not specific and if your favorite company doesn’t make the list don’t worry you know your favorite company is still number 1 in your heart. So let’s get right to it and start this top 10 list.
#1 Vape Capitol
Vape Capitol was created in 2014 to tell the stories of the vaping industry and those behind it. They continued to help people in the community connect and grow. Most had growth so fast they had deals in the industry that helped them start their own business. From everything Vape Capitol does it is for the good of the industry.
#2 Cloud Chasers Inc.
Cloudy Collaborations, LLC was founded by Kurt Loeblich and Neal Knebel, two fellow Illinoisians with a passion for vaping. Neal, an experienced Brick and Mortar owner, and Kurt, founder of Cloud Chasers Inc., both wanted to have an online shop where people could purchase quality vaping gear for affordable prices. They launched their website on January 1st, 2015, and have been happily serving their customers ever since.
Even though their website started back in january 2015 the CCI brand has always been around since 2013. Founder Kurt has always been for the community, advocating for our rights to vape and even has donated to the very organizations that still to this day help us in this industry.
#3 Vaping American Made Products
In 2014 the founders of Vaping American Made Products met for the first time in Orange County, California to discuss their mutual desire to create the hardest hitting mechanical mod that would be hand crafted to the highest quality. To them, the products available on the market lacked true passion and were manufactured using inferior materials. That same evening the groundwork was laid to what is now known as The Rig Mod and Roughneck Atomizer. The first true competition mech mod that would raise the bar throughout the vaping industry.
Fast forward to 2015, The Rig Mod Version 2 was released. Never skipping a beat by exceeding all expectations and hype. A more compact and sleek design that packed an even larger punch. The V.2 quickly became the go to mod for Competition Cloud and Trick Competitors alike. Taking first place in the 2016 Vape Capitol Biggest Cloud Competition only lends more credibility to cloud chasers across the globe.
Both versions of the Rig Mod have gained international notoriety by winning multiple best mod awards including the 2016 Vapouround Magazine Mod of the Year. One would think all these accomplishments and accolades would satisfy most manufacturers but not VapeAMP. How do you outdo the previous iterations of The Rig Mod? You make the hardest hitting mod known to man. The Rig Pig, a series box mod crafted with the same ideals of the products that came before it and you make it so it would outlast the user.
To this day, the same collective minds forge new paths to deliver the best available vaping devices. Through exceptional design, high-grade materials and unmatched manufacturing, this is the foundation of what makes Vaping American Made Products.
#4 Vapor Rage
Vapor Rage LLC was founded in 2012 and our mission is simple. We want to help you quit smoking! We have a wide rage or products to help you quit the habit you hate so badly. We specialize in our premium eliquids which are all made from FDA approved food flavorings, kosher food grade VG and PG and pharmaceutical grade 99.9% pure nicotine. We do NOT add food coloring, alcohol, or water to any of eliquids which ensures a better quality vape every time! We truly care about the effects smoking has and therefore offer an alternative that has many benefits
I personally have been going to vapor rage over the past year. Nick co-owner of vapor rage truly cares about the community. He shares his passion just as much as anyone else.
#5 Giant Vapes
Founded in September 2013, Giant Vapes was an idea that took about a year to come to fruition. The company was inspired by our love for the vaping industry, but our hatred for paying so much money in shipping charges. We at Giant Vapes enjoy vaping e-liquids from many different vendors, and there was no place to buy them all (or at least many of them) so every order from every different vendor resulted in more money paid for shipping.
We will continue to add more e-juice vendors as we grow, and do our best to maintain the largest curated selection of e-liquids in the US.
Giant vapes is a big contributor for advocacy by supporting CASAA, Vape A Vet and SFATA.
In the Fall of 2012 we opened the doors to our first retail store, tucked inside a small shopping center in Miami Florida. As the first business of its kind, in a community largely unaware of the advances being made in electronic-cigarette technology (or even vaping, generally), we had a steep climb ahead of us.
#7 Simply Ejuice
Ohio-based Simply E-juice started like many other juice companies. Steve Manley, the founder and a vaper of 2 years, began dabbling with DIY e-liquid mixing in 2013, and discovered he had quite the knack for it. Shortly after local store owners who had sampled his wares began contacting him and asking to sell his liquids in-store. Thus, Simply E-juice was born.
Now operated by Steve, his fellow juice maker Kari Buckoski, and a closely knit group of family/friends, Simply E-juice operates on the principles that their name implies. They keep it simple. Not to say their juices aren’t complex, but Simply E-juice focuses on making high-quality, clean, delicious juices, all in Max VG blends, without over complicating things.
#8 Phat Panda Vapor
Phat Panda is a family owned and operated juice company created and founded in 2014 by a Sister and Brother team Matt Eldridge and Jen Eldridge.
We started our vaping journey after losing our Grandfather to Stage 4 cancer in May of 2012. After that Matt and I realized that we had a choice to live healthier lives not only for ourselves but for our family.
Phat Panda started as a hobby and quickly gained a following amongst close family and friends. Now we would like to share our unique creations with you! We truly appreciate all of the support and love our fans have shown us!!
All the Best,
Jen and Matt Eldridge

#10 A Billion Lives
I know this isn’t a vape company but I feel it is very important to put on this list. Knowledge is always helpful to be shared with the unknown.
Why make this film?
Everywhere we look, we see big business interests corrupting the truth and affecting millions of lives. We see that in the food industry, healthcare, government, and now with alternatives to smoking. With nearly unlimited funds, the big money always seems to drown out the truth when it suits them.
As filmmakers, it’s our job to tell stories that need telling, give voices to the voiceless, and make our world a better place. It’s not every day that filmmakers get to tell a story that can change the lives of hundreds of millions of people around the world. With A Billion Lives, we have that chance and we’re not going to waste it.
We’re putting everything we have into making this the defining film for an entire generation and helping end the grip smoking has on over a billion people.
