A Begginer´s Guide: Your first vaping kit, including the six must-have features. Read reviews online and listen to vape enthusiasts. Meanwhile we’ve put this guide together to help new vapers choose their first starter kit.
Brand New to Vaping
If you’re brand new to vaping. there are a few new terms that you should understand before choosing your vape starter kit.
Mouth to lung inhale, this is when vapor is pulled into the mouth first and then inhaled into the lungs second. The same as when drawing smoke from a cigarette.
Direct to lung inhale, this is when vapor is inhaled straight into the lungs which is the common method for those that are Sub-Ohming.
Sub-Ohming, technically involves vaping on a device whose atomizer coils have a resistance of less than 1 Ohm.
Sub-Ohming allows a person to produce more cloud vapor while enjoying a more intense flavor and warmer vape.
There are quite a few different types of vape devices including Cig- a-likes, which are very basic first generation devices and mechanical mods which are for advanced vapers only.
Here we’ll cover the two best choices for a beginner the vape pen and the box mod.
Easy and Safe
If you have never vaped before then in most cases, the vape pen is a great first device for you!
They are easy to use mostly designed for a mouth to lung inhales and a compact in size, so are ideal for beginners that are looking to transition from smoking.
You will also get great flavor and produce decent clouds depending on the specific device and e-liquid that you choose.
If you have tried vaping or a starter kit and are comfortable with direct lung inhales then you may be better suited to a box mod style.
They are more powerful and have more advanced features, like variable wattage, they can support both mouth to lung and direct lung inhales, and are larger in size than vape pens, and because you can sub-ohm you will enjoy better flavor and bigger clouds.
As a beginner it’s important that whatever device you choose it is both easy and safe to use.
MUST HAVE FEATURES
These six must-have features will help to ensure this.
1 – Easy to fill.
You will be refilling your tank with a liquid a few times a week.
So you want to starter kit that is easy to refill and mess-free a device that is top fill is the simplest, where a simple unscrew and fill from the top is all that is required.
2 – Easy to replace coils.
You will also be replacing your coils once or twice a week so you will want to starter kit for a simple unscrew and replace is all that is required.
3 – Sufficient tank capacity.
You will require a large enough a liquid tank to avoid topping up constantly during the day.
As a general guidance, if you smoke a pack a day then a two to 3ml. tank should support a full day of vaping.
If you are closer to two packs a day then a 4ml. to 6ml. tank should be all that is required.
4 – For long battery life.
You will need to balance battery life with your size preference. Because the longer the battery life the less compact the device will be.
As a general guidance. We would suggest that if you smoke a pack a day then a 1,000 milliamp hour capacity should get you through a full day of vaping. If you are closer to two packs a day then you will require at least two thousand milliamp hour capacity.
5 – Simple to charge.
The more powerful the device the bigger the batteries and the more battery maintenance is required. For example with many of the Box mods you will need to remove the batteries and charge them separately. However, vape pens typically come with a built in battery and a simple plug in micro USB charger.
6 – Essential Safety Features.
Short-circuit protection, to stop the unit from functioning in the case of a shorted atomizer to over discharge protection. Automatically power off when the battery over discharges. Overcharge protection, to terminate the charging process once the device is fully charged. Overheat protection, to stop the unit from functioning before the battery is at risk of overheating.
There are several other features which are more geared towards intermediate and advanced vapers.
Such as variable voltage, variable wattage and temperature control.
