Even though vapor looks a lot like smoke, using an e-cigarette is quite a bit different than actually smoking – but that’s what makes vaping freaking awesome!
Vaping is not just a great way to get your nicotine fix than smoking, also an excellent alternative for the marijuana lovers.
However, there’s no doubt that there is a little bit of a learning curve when you first start vaping, but here’s how you can get started.
Choose the right vape starter kit
The market is full of great value vape starter kits, but it’s a good idea to take your time when choosing the right kit for you.
Some starter vapor kits are better suited for beginners because of their simple technology. You should check out the kits that have a lower output and integrated internal battery, so you can get a feel for vaping without the need for advanced knowledge about how the parts interact. These models make it as easy as filling up the tank, charging the battery, and turning it on.
Figure out your E- Cig
Figuring out how a cigarette works is pretty self-explanatory. When you receive your e-cig starter kit, read the instructions manual carefully and understand its anatomy and operation.
All e-cigs are different and some have variable settings. As a rule of thumb, it’s best to start low and adjust to higher temperatures as you go in order to hone in on the perfect flavor to vapor ratio. Also, make sure that there’s enough e-juice in your tank/cartomizer.
How to Take Your First Magical Puff of Vapor
Once you’ve chosen the right vaping kit for you, getting started is easy. But make sure to vape for longer than you’d have smoked, take slower, gentler puffs until the vapor fills your mouth.
You should always avoid chain smoking an e-cigarette. Only take about three to seven draws at a time and take a break. This will allow a few minutes for the e-cigarette to cool and to give your throat a rest.
Don’t overfill the tank
You might think that it’s as simple as picking an e-juice, using it to fill the tank, and then taking a drag. But the truth is that there is more to it than that, and you probably won’t enjoy your vaping experience if you don’t exercise caution when it comes to filling your tank.
Overfilling will cause your vape session to grind to a halt, and can be quite a pain to clean up. If you don’t fill it enough, it could lead to dry hits, and you will have to refill it more often than you would have to when you fill it up to the fill line.
Try Different E-Liquids
It is always advisable to switch flavors of e-liquid to avoid experiencing Vaper’s tongue. It happens when you vape a single type of e-juice for so long that you can no longer taste the flavor. It’s easy to fix, though. All you have to do is switch to a new flavor for awhile, and when you go back to the original flavor you should be able to taste it again just fine. Staying hydrated and drinking water can help, too.
Never Leave Yourself Without Supplies
This should be your primary rule : never leave yourself without a charged battery, at least some spare coils and, most importantly, e-liquid. These fundamental vaping resources are not so easily accessible as a pack of cigarettes, and, if you run out of them, you’re in big trouble .
Always make sure your battery is in great shape, because once your battery loses its charge it’ll take a lot longer for it to come back to life. In fact, try to carry around a fully charged spare battery (or two).
Invest in A Better Battery
The larger a battery’s capacity, the more full, satisfying puffs it can produce before the voltage starts to dip. Smaller batteries can’t deliver the same amount of power that the high-load attachments like cartomizers or low-resistance atomizers demand.
You will have to learn how to clean your tank effectively in order to ensure the performance and longevity of your device. Next, it’s important to properly prime your vape coil and to replace your coil at the right time to ensure a consistently good vaping experience.
Even though the FDA doesn’t support the claim that e cigs help people quit smoking, there are a lot of people out there in the world who believe that e cigs were the only reason they were able to quit smoking.
