Tip #1 – Sustaining Perfect Performance
It’s massively important to take care of your battery. It might be the single most important part of vaping.
Keeping clean connections will ensure that your tank fires properly, resulting in the pest performance possible from your device. People new to vaping often overlook this little step. It’s not a sexy topic but it’s absolutely necessary to cover.
E-juice always seems to find a way to get into your threading. It’s inevitable. That’s why you have to make sure you clean it regularly.
Cleaning your connections is pretty easy. All you have to do is wipe it down with a cloth that won’t leave residue. An old t-shirt would be perfect. If you decide to use a cotton ball or q-tip, make sure it doesn’t leave any cotton behind in your threading. That would negate all of your work.
Also, you don’t need to use any soap or water. Using soap and water could be quite dangerous actually. A dry cloth or rag would work perfectly. Remember, you’re just trying to wipe away the gunk.
Tip #2 – Getting Top Quality E-juice
Picking a quality e-liquid is getting harder and harder. So many companies are popping up all the world. Some of them are creating their juices in their homes, while others are getting them from China.
Buying vape juice that was created in someone’s basement is not a good idea. You have no clue what’s in their. You might end up vaping their dog’s germs or their kid’s stomach virus. You never know. Without a clean facility, vape juice will most definitely get contaminated.
Vaping e-liquid produced in China is also a risky endeavor. China doesn’t follow the same cleanliness standards as the US and Europe. Manufacturers in China are known for cutting corners with their products to keep their costs down. It doesn’t mean that good vape liquid can’t come out of china, but it does mean I’m not going to be the one to find out. Most e-cigs are manufactured there, but they’re better at making devices since cleanliness is not as much of a concern.
To be safe, make sure you buy your e-liquids from a reputable vendor. It doesn’t have to be from a major company like VaporFi, although they’re an excellent choice, but make sure the company is solid. If they craft their juices in a clean facility, test it for impurities, and have a good reputation, then they are worthy of my money.
Following this tip will make sure that your lungs are only taking in the finest vapor on the market. Your health is not something you want to risk just to try a weird juice from an unknown supplier.
Tip #3 – Picking Your First Vape
When buying your first vape, keep it simple and stay focused.
If you’re buying it to help you quit smoking, don’t get a combo like the SMOK GX350 mod and TFV12 tank. You’ll end up baffled, frustrated, and confused by all the features, maintenance, and sheer power.
You don’t need to be worrying about learning how to operate a complicated device when you’re quitting tobacco. Your focus needs to be on enjoying your new method of nicotine delivery, not fumbling with a complicated device. There will be a time when you’re ready for a DNA 250 mod, but your first purchase is not the one.
Stick to a simple vape pen starter kit. Something like the Kanger Top Evod would be perfect. It’s simple, has very little maintenance, and delivers nicotine effectively. After getting the hang of it, then you might want to upgrade to a intermediate device like the SMOK Stick V8. An intermediate device will give you massive vapor and provide a richer experience.
You can go straight to an intermediate device if you think you can handle the learning curve, but don’t go straight to an advanced device.
Tip #4 – Stay Safe
