THE BEST VAPING TIPS FOR BEGINNERS
1. INVEST IN PREMIUM E-LIQUIDS
You won’t regret spending a little extra on high-quality e-liquid. Cheap Chinese e-liquids can be found online, but they come with risks. Poor-quality e-liquids often contain impurities, which can cause sickness. Stick with a reputable US manufacturer unless you’re looking forward to high medical bills. Pure, medical-grade nicotine and food-grade ingredients are used in premium vapour juices. Check them out!
2. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE TASTE
Choosing a great flavour is one of the most exciting and important parts of a great vaping experience. There are many stores that offer sample packs to let you explore your taste buds. Many categories of flavours are available including tobacco, desserts, food, candy, savoury, drinks, and more! Mix and match flavours to make your own unique blend. The options are endless.
3. KNOW YOUR PG/VG RATIOS
Here’s the lowdown on PG/VG ratios. High or 100% VG (vegetable glycerin) e-liquid produces thicker smoke and smoother hits. Lower VG juice produces smaller clouds and a deeper “throat hit”. Therefore, depending on the cloud effect and flavour you desire, you will need to decide whether you prefer a high or low VG. Juice containing high VG is generally considered better quality because it has fewer allergies, fewer throat hits, is naturally sweet, and produces killer clouds.
4. E-LIQUID MAINTENANCE
When it comes to e-liquids, it’s more than just buying and vaping. Shaking your e-juices before each use is a good idea. When? It ensures the best quality vape by mixing up the PG/VG and nicotine levels. In addition, avoid exposing your e-liquids to direct sunlight, as this can decrease the nicotine content. Opened e-liquid bottles are also a no-no. If the juice flavour is too intense, letting it breathe for a few minutes is fine, but leaving it open for longer than 30 minutes will greatly compromise the juice’s taste.
5. DARK ROOM = RICHER FLAVOUR
Try letting a bottle of premium e-liquid sit in a dark room for a week or so if it seems stale or lacks flavour. In a similar way to fine wine, most e-liquids have an enhanced taste after marinating together for a few weeks in a dark place.
6. PLASTIC TANK WARNINGS
Acidic flavours such as menthol, citrus, essential oils, and cinnamon can crack or wrap plastic tanks (most vape starter kits come with plastic tanks, so beginners should be careful). To avoid any potential damage, make sure you invest in a quality glass or pyrex tank if you love these types of acidic flavours. Safety first!
7. CLEAN YOUR E-TANK REGULARLY
Make sure you empty and clean your e-tank on a regular basis. You should do it at least once a week and it’s really easy to do. It is very easy to clean your vape by disassembling it, pouring out the remaining e-liquid, and rinsing the tank, mouthpiece, and atomizer under hot water. Air drying is recommended. Unless you do this regularly, you’ll likely end up with nasty build-up, leaks, and bad tasting flavours.
8. CHECK BATTERY CONNECTIONS
Maintaining your battery connections regularly will help prevent any issues with your battery and vape. All you have to do is unscrew the battery and check where the battery and atomizer connect for e-juice buildup. Wipe away any grime, and you’re done!
9. CHANGE YOUR COILS
Beginners often don’t realise how crucial it is to change your coils before vaping, but doing so directly affects your vaping experience. If you notice any buildup on your coils or the flavour becomes burnt and repulsive, it’s time to change them! To avoid bad tasting, dry hits after changing your coil, prime the wicks with e-liquid. The next time you vape, take a few hits without inhaling so that the flavour gets evened out.
10. KEEP EXTRA BATTERIES HANDY
You’re out of luck if your current battery dies. It’s a good idea to keep a spare set so you can easily switch them out. Get your next hit without waiting hours for it to charge! It’s also a good idea to keep spare batteries at work or in your purse to ensure you’ll always have a reliable backup.
