What you Need to Know About Vaping
Vaping is extremely popular and has helped people give up cigarettes through finding a less harmful way of meeting their cravings. However, before you take it up here is what you need to know.
Vaping Won’t Replace Cigarettes Completely (At First)
Many people will initially begin vaping to help them kick the nicotine habit. While there are some aspects about breaking the habit that vaping can help soothe it is important to know that it will not actually replace smoking a cigarette. There are many subtle differences that will affect the different experiences.
First of all, a vaporizer will feel much different in your hand than a cigarette will feel. The taste and smell of a cigarette is also very different. Many companies have made a special e-liquid that attempts to imitate the taste and smell of a cigarette and these have had various levels of success in these replications.
All in all, the switch may not be as fluid as many are led to believe.
Try Not To Be Cheap When It Comes to Your First Kit
If you spend a mere £10 on a pack of cigarettes, you may be very reluctant to dish out £50 for a vape kit. Of course after you do the math you will realize the vape kit will more than pay for itself in the long run.
But, you will want to choose a quality option nonetheless. You will find options on all levels of the price range and even some awesome looking replicas of more expensive models available for a fraction of the price. But, only quality vaping kits offer superior vaping experiences.
Read the Instructions
Don’t neglect to read the instructions and manufacturer’s recommendations when you receive a new vape kit. It’s cool to be a beginner and you will have a lot of fun learning about your new device and taking the intuitive approach will ensure you do not accidentally break it.
When you purchase from a physical location, you can expect the shop clerk to help you setup your device and get started. They could also demonstrate the functions, temperatures settings and even how the model will need to be cleaned. When purchasing online, you will find videos and other types of content to help with this.
Choose the Right Nicotine Strength for You
You will find an exciting range of nicotine strength available as well. If you are trying to replicate the buzz from a cigarette, most people choose the 18 mg content. But, heavy smokers looking to ease off have been known to use the super high 54mg content.
Choose the Right E-liquid for You
Other than nicotine content, there are some other points to consider when choosing and e-liquid. For those highly quality billowing clouds of vapor, choose a product that has a higher VG content and lower PG.
If you are looking for a more potent hit like what you may be used to from a cigarette, you may choose something higher in PG and lower in VG. The effect is much closer to what you will find in a cigarette.
You will need to keep the battery compartment of your vape unit clean if you hope to preserve its function.
As time goes by it will become contaminated with juice and this can lead to shorts and other breakdowns. Use a lightly moistened Q-Tip to clean out the entire compartment. Be sure to check this no less than once a week and clean as needed.
Replace the Coil
The heating element is another part of the vape unit that will need to be addressed regularly if it will function optimally and for a long time. This is also the part that will burn out the fastest and you should always have a spare on and to make quick replacements.
You will need a bit more supplies and paraphernalia to vape than to smoke so keep that in mind. Be sure you always carry two of everything just in case. For example carrying a spare battery case, an extra coil and the e-liquid you will need will avoid facing breakdowns and having to wait till you get home to vape. Which can increase your chances of smoking on the way back.
