Many people are making the transition from traditional smoking to vaping. Having the right device with the right e-juice can simulate the same sensation you get from smoking which is why a lot of people are making the jump over to the world-wide trend. With so many kits and accessories available to you, there is still a learning process that you need to undertake to ensure that you are using your device correctly.
To help you out we have put together a short guide to get you vaping in 4 easy steps.
What type of experience are you after?
Before you sink a bunch of time and money into buying a vape pen and stock up on e-juices you should be asking yourself what type of experience you are after. Vaping does offer a sensation similar to smoking because of the nicotine hit but there are also other factors that you need to consider. E-juice comes in a bunch of different flavours and your device can be adjusted to create different levels of cloud thickness.
Here are some questions you should be asking yourself about what type of experience you want to have:
Am I after just a nicotine hit or do I want something extra?
Do I enjoy and prefer the other aspects of smoking such as the flavour?
Do I want to make big clouds or vape discreetly?
What type of device do you want to have? – Something pocket friendly or something to show off when you’re in public?
Picking a device
After you have come to the conclusion of what type of experience you want you are ready to go shopping. Before you decide on what flavour e-juice or e-liquid with nicotine you want you should be looking at the different e-cig models and it fits with what you want to do.
If you are after a strong nicotine hit it is recommended that you choose a device with a high resistant heating element. This will give you thinner clouds but will let you absorb the nicotine better and get that hit you are after. These devices don’t need a lot of power thus you can go with a smaller more discreet model.
Cloud chasers on the other hand will want a heating element with low resistance to give the more vapour which leads to bigger clouds. Additionally cloud chasers tend to install multiple mods on their devices so they will need something with a larger battery which will in turn make the device bigger. The e-juice cartridges also tend to be bigger than the other variants which makes it hard to conceal this type of device in your pocket.
Choosing your e-juice
E-juice goes by many names including but not limited to; vape-juice, vape-liquid, e-liquid an e-juice. Again depending on what type of experience you want will ultimately decide what type of e-juice you should be getting. There are two main base variants known as vegetable glycerine (VG) and propylene glycol (PG).
VG is the main choice for cloud chasers as it produces thicker clouds while PG on the other hand has no flavour of its own and will leave less residue on your device. It comes down to your preference really and how you want to enjoy it. It is also important to note that you can also choose the intensity of the nicotine content in the e-juice as well.
Read the instructions
One of if not the most important step is to remember to read the instructions. These devices can be dangerous if not used correctly as you are dealing with heat and chemicals in a container. If you are new to vaping altogether be sure to ask people as well so you are best prepared before you start.
