So you’re thinking about making the switch from smoking to vaping! The world of vaping is vast and can be intimidating for those just starting out. We want to help you make your transition as smooth as possible. Listed below are some useful vaping tips for new vapers:
Don’t expect vaping to be like smoking. Vaping is a GREAT alternative to smoking, but it is different. Cigarette smoke is light, whereas, e-cig vapor is heavier. Instead of a quick draw that you may be used to from a regular tobacco cigarette, you should take a long, slow draw from an electronic cigarette. Take the time to enjoy the flavor of the inhale and exhale.
Buy only from reputable vape shops. Excellent vape shops will take the time to show you all aspects of your new e-cig. They should explain how to turn it off and on, how to replace your atomizer coils, and how to maintenance your e-cig. If you have questions about vaping or your new device, do not be afraid to ask.
Buy an extra set of batteries. If your batteries run out of charge, you don’t want to be tempted to pick up a cigarette.
Store batteries properly. You should always keep your e-cig batteries in a case. NEVER put exposed batteries in your pocket. They will connect with your change and other metal objects and will heat up in a hurry!
Always be respectful of others nearby. Do not blow vapor in the direction of others. Comply with your local laws and regulations regarding e-cigarette use.
Soak your atomizer coils. When changing your atomizer coils, avoid horrible tasting, harsh dry hits by soaking your coils properly. For best practice, we recommend you cut a 10ml bottle in half, pour eliquid into the bottle, drop in your coil and let it soak for a few hours. Pick up the atomizer coil and gently blow out the excess eliquid into a paper towel. Your atomizer coil is now ready!
Clean your e-cigarette thoroughly. Use a dry cloth or paper towel to wipe your e-cig clean. Use q-tips to gently clean your spring-loaded pins (this is where your screw your tank into your e-cig).
Purchase the correct VG/PG ratio eliquid for your tank. Standard tanks (not sub ohm) work well with a higher ratio of PG (Propylene Glycol) while sub ohm tanks work best with a higher ratio of VG (Vegetable Glycerin). High PG eliquid provides a more intense throat hit and slightly less flavor. It should be used with atomizer coils above 1 ohm. High VG eliquid provides a more subtle throat hit, great flavor, and more clouds. It is noticeably thicker than PG eliquid. Those that might have an allergy or be sensitive to PG liquid, should use VG liquid. The market trend currently is going more towards sub ohm tanks and high VG eliquid.
Purchase the correct nicotine level for your eliquid. High nicotine levels (18 to 24 mg) are generally for smaller e-cig devices that use standard tanks (not sub ohm). Whereas, low nicotine levels (0 to 6 mg) are generally for sub ohm tanks. Sub ohm tanks use more eliquid because they vaporize the eliquid quicker and the user gets more vapor. The most popular nicotine level for sub ohm tanks is currently 3 mg.
New vapers may cough for a few days. It’s nothing to worry about. Your body is recovering from being a smoker. Simply put, the cilia (hairs) are falling off with the tar that your body is rejecting. They will grow back, but until they do your throat and lungs will be sensitive. Drink water to help.
