There is no doubt: vaping is a much better and less harmful alternative to smoking. By switching from smoking to vaping, you can free yourself from thousands of dangerous chemicals, stop worrying about smoking related health conditions, and bring a multitude of extremely delicious e-liquid flavours in your daily life. However, due to the overabundance of products in the market, disinformation, as well as other factors, the switch itself can be quite difficult for some people.
Whether you have already ordered your first vaping kit online or plan to purchase it in the coming days, here are some useful vaping tips for beginners.
This is one of the most common mistakes smokers make when changing to vaping. Most people automatically assume that $100 for a decent vaping kit is a lot, as they are accustomed to spending only $20 - $30 per day to feed their tobacco addictions. This is a completely wrong way of Go kit with an outdated low-end clearomizer which, of course, doesn’t satisfy their expectations.
Although an eGo battery might work quite nicely for you in the beginning, at least don’t go with those generic CE4 or similar clearomizers, and get a Innokin Z Biip instead – according to many vapers, that is one of the best low-budget beginner setups out there.
Sub-ohming – It usually means huge amounts of vapor, enormous airflow, and organic cotton coils which deliver mouth-watering flavour. However, it might not always work for a beginner who is just making the switch from smoking. Here are some of the main reasons why:
While is infinitely safer than smoking and better for your health, as well as for people around you, you might want to be careful about where you vape. Just like in the case of non-smokers, let’s also respect non-vapers by not using our devices in proximity around them. While in some places it is still pending, in many countries, legislation limiting where people can vape has already been passed, so make sure to always comply with your local laws and regulations regarding e-cigarette use. If you’re uncertain about the laws, just follow the basic rule of thumb and don’t vape in a place where you wouldn’t feel comfortable smoking a regular tobacco cigarette. And, of course, this is not an issue whatsoever if you vape in your own property.
Welcome to vaping, my friend! This should be your primary rule, your absolute commandment: never leave yourself without a charged battery, at least some spare coils and, most importantly, e-liquid. In most cases, these fundamental vaping resources are not so easily accessible as a pack of cigarettes, and, if you run out of them, you’re in big trouble – your risk switching back to smoking increases.
Always make sure your battery is in great shape. If your device has an in-built rechargeable battery, don’t forget to bring your charging cable even on shorter trips. If you have an 18650 powered mod, try to get at least two of those batteries, as well as a charger for them.
When it comes to coils, we recommend purchasing at least a 5-pack. While the lifetime of some of the recent coils can be up to a month, some signs of burnt taste may appear after a week as well, so be prepared. This, of course, is not an issue if you live or work near a vape shop, but that’s not always the case.
While very similar, a Vape device is heavier and feels different than a tobacco cigarette
Let’s be honest here: an electronic cigarette certainly isn’t an exact replica of a tobacco cigarette. Even if you choose a cig-a-like, the experience will simply not be exactly like smoking. The feel in your mouth, throat and lungs will be different, and so will be the form/weight/size factor.
Besides, no tobacco e-liquid tastes exactly like your nasty, smelly and harmful cigarette. Sure, some of our juices have managed to almost replicate that taste, although it still isn’t the same – just because there is no combustion going on in an e-cigarette. This, however, should by no means hold you back from at least trying vaping. Quite the contrary, really – as there are lots of delicious flavours, you can stick with tobacco blends only but do your best to try out as many flavours as you possibly can instead. This way, you’ll soon realize what vaping really can be about, and you may just begin to love the abundance of flavours.
What works for me, may not be ideal for other people. So, don’t let anyone (including us) tell you what and how to vape – you’ll find it out by yourself. Start with a decent but not too expensive setup, try out another tank after a while, mix up your e-liquid game and try to be in the know of new vaping products and innovations. By experimenting, you’ll be able to determine your optimal setup,
