Smokers can derive the same level of satisfaction from vaping. The best thing with vaping is that users have the chance to choose their favourite flavour. However, despite the vape kits getting better over the years and easing the switch from smoking to vaping, new vapers need to be guided to start it the right way and enjoy maximum benefits.
Here are five easy steps on how you can start vaping:
Decide on the experience you are looking for
You need to define what it is that you enjoy in smoking and how that may influence your choice of vape. The idea behind vaping is to satisfy you the same way that smoking does. With vaping being so versatile, you can enjoy tons of varying experiences using different combinations of vape kits and e-juices. Before choosing your vaping gear, you need to ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you want a big device that will impress people when you get it out, or something discreet?
- Are you after a big nicotine hit, or do you just want to savour the more sensory act of smoking, for example, the different flavours of the juice?
- Do you value big clouds as you vape or would you rather vape discreetly?
You are ready to shop for your vape kit once you have answered the above questions.
Choose the appropriate device
Having decided the vaper you desire to be, you should then go through the variety of kits and identify the one that is the most suitable for you. If you are one of those who are after a big nicotine hit, it is advisable to go for a device that uses a heating element (a coil or wick) and high resistance.
Choose your vape juice
So, which vape juice are you going to use with the device you have chosen? You are spoilt for choice, and the fun of vaping is in this part. Vape juice has either propylene glycol or vegetable glycerine (or both) as its solvents and gives out the ‘clouds’ or the vapour when vaping. It also contains nicotine and flavour.
To vape, you put vape juice, which is also called eliquid, in the device as per the instructions, and then you get started. Although buying vape juice can be a bit intimidating as you start due to the many brands, you only need to make two key decisions:
- The nicotine level that you want (or even no nicotine at all as there are nicotine-free vape juices)
- The flavour that you would like to enjoy
Select the right parts
For optimal use of your device, there are two main parts that you will need to have at your reach: the coil and batteries. You only need spare batteries for devices with replaceable batteries. Coils apply to all devices and are a critical part. They need frequent replacement due to the constant heating and cooling, thus wearing out and making the vapour to have a bitter taste. Should you realize that your vapour has changed in taste, it’s time to replace the coil. For most vapers, the replacement is once per week. Make sure that the parts that you buy are compatible with your device.
Read the device’s instructions
When you get your device, you need to take ample time to read the instruction booklet that comes with it. Grasping the information ensures that you carry out the initial steps properly so that your first vape brings you the satisfaction you have been yearning for. Having filled your new vape with e-liquid for the very first time, allow it at least five minutes so that the coil is fully saturated in the vape juice. Failure to do this will give you a dry hit that offers you a bad flavour and is likely to damage your coil.
With those steps, you will be good to start vaping, and in no time, you will be doing it like an experienced vaper. Vaping will let you get your nicotine dose or the sensory satisfaction that you wanted and in a healthier way than by smoking.
