Are you Sick of the increasing cost of cigarettes? Have you just taken the huge decision to give up smoking? Have you just brought a vape starter kit? If the answer to any of these is yes, then you are in the right place; this short article will aim to give you all the information about vaping, the different devices, and various e-liquids available and how to advance onto other vape machines. Armed with these facts, you can then plan your vaping journey and make good on your wish to make smoking a thing of the past.
Starting At the Beginning
Vape devices use a tank system filled with e-liquid. Inside the tank is a wick with a cotton core that soaks up the liquid; when heat is applied via power from an internal battery, the liquid is turned into a vapour. These basics remain the same for nearly all vape devices but with subtle, varied differences with the more advanced vapes. E-liquid, vapour juice or vape liquid are all names for the liquid used in vape devices, and it is a combination of three or four main ingredients. Which are –
- Propylene Glycol – an organic food and medicine component which is a great carrier of flavour.
- Vegetable Glycerine – is a clear liquid made from plant oils and allows the production of large clouds of vapour.
- Food-based flavourings – these are the food industry staples used in many products.
The fourth and most important element is nicotine; more commonly, this is pre-mixed into a complete and ready-to-use e-liquid. There are possibilities further in a vaper’s career to buy e-liquid minus the nicotine, referred to as shortfill e-liquid; the vaper then adds the required number of nicotine portions called the shots.
Discussing Vape Devices
Vaping devices are fairly simple machines; you fill them, charge them up and use them, there are some bells and whistles on more advanced machines, but the process remains the same throughout. The most basic of vape device and a super starting point for the new vaper is the disposable vape pen or pod, already pre-filled with e-liquid and charged with enough power to vape. They are easy to use and give the newcomer a taste of what vaping has to offer; they’re also fairly cheap, so trying vaping isn’t expensive. From there, vapers can move onto refillable and rechargeable devices such as vape pens or a complete starter kit that most suppliers offer, which are an excellent entry point into vaping.
Further On in Your Vaping Career
Once you have got used to your starting vape device and tried some of the vast range of delicious vape liquid flavours, it may be time to move on to something more advanced. Vape devices with adjustable power packs and variable wattage are an option, as is a step up to the latest in vape device design, the vape pod. Vape pods swap the traditional tank design for a switchable pod; they are refillable and easily enable the vaper to switch between different e-liquid flavours. Once the coil is finished, the pod is swapped for a new one, rather than changing the coil as needed in a normal tank-designed vape.
So, there are the vaping basics. With this new information, you can confidently plan your vaping journey. Enjoy.
