There are many reasons why a person may want to take up vaping. The most common is the decision to switch from the traditional cigarette to the electronic cigarette which is less harmful to health. Smoking can cause a lot of health damage because of the many combustion products contained in nicotine, which burn at different temperatures. In addition, in recent years, many people have become interested in taking care of their health and their body, without giving up the urge to smoke.
No wonder that in addition to the success of gyms and fitness blogs, the e-cigarette market is also becoming more and more popular. Anyone who decides to quit smoking tends to turn to vaporizing. But despite all the good intentions, there are a few very important things to consider when buying your first e-cigarette, so that you are not disappointed and that the process of getting started goes smoothly.
Before buying your first e-cigarette, it is important to ask the right questions to find the model best suited to your needs.
- How many cigarettes do I smoke per day?
- What should be the nicotine content of the e-cigarette due to my daily consumption of cigarettes?
- How important is the appearance of the e-cigarette to me?
- In what situations do I want to vaporize (only at home, also on the road, in the evenings)?
- How much am I willing to invest in an e-cigarette model?
The first two points are of course only for (ex-)smokers. All non-smokers should urgently refrain from vaporizing with a liquid containing nicotine in order to avoid creating an addiction! The appearance of the electronic cigarette is of course important to us all, but is it more important than the various features offered by the e-cigarette?
The fourth point plays on the handling and performance of the battery. Vapers who take their e-cigarette on the road or who use it throughout the day must opt for more autonomous models. They must also have two spare batteries to prevent the battery from being completely drained or that, out of frustration, you can throw yourself on one or more cigarette rods because you can no longer use the e-cigarette. And finally, of course, costs play a major role. E-cigarettes come in different price ranges. A higher price is often associated with better quality and durability. Whatever the decision, unlike a packet of cigarettes a day, the cost of the wrapper is significantly lower.
Anyone who thinks they can trade with so-called “cigalikes” is mistaken. These are e-cigarettes similar to conventional cigarettes, but with a low nicotine content and offer an unsatisfactory vaporization. They are generally relatively expensive. Cigarettes rather have the opposite effect, namely that the consumer, visibly disappointed by e-cigarettes and thinking that vaporization is not for him, will never touch an e-cigarette again. This is why it is advantageous to do without such a model completely and instead buy an e-cigarette from a known manufacturer.
Wide choice for beginners
Many distributors of e-cigarettes now offer a category “E-cigarettes for beginners” or “E-cigarettes in a box”. These products already contain everything you need to start vaporizing immediately. This means that the components cannot be chosen individually according to your needs. In addition, these devices are easier to use, which means that no knowledge of watt and voltage settings is required. Simply fill the liquid, place the evaporator on top and press the button. Simple operation always means limited adjustment possibilities, but in the beginning, the most important thing is the taste and feel. Another feature to consider when buying an e-cigarette set is the availability of the e-liquid once you have finished the bottle. Many models have a “Top Fill”, which means that the liquid can easily be added to the reservoir from the top. In most beginner models the battery is already integrated.
However, you will need to check whether you need to buy a second battery with your e-cigarette. This case is not a problem either, because with an extra battery cell, you are always sure to enjoy the e-cigarette. If vaporization should also be possible during the charging process, the term “pass through effect” must be respected. If you want to experience a little bit of draught resistance, you should opt for evaporators with “air flow control”. The tensile strength can be adjusted individually according to your requirements. The aroma is better perceived during vaporization.
When vaporizing with lung trains, on the other hand, the jet of nicotine is greater, since inhalation takes place directly into the lungs. The low-resistance vaporizer heads, known as “sub-Ohm”, are suitable for this purpose. The resistance is less than 1 and the amount of vapor is greater.
An easy to use but still powerful enough model is the “PockeX Pocket AIO” from Aspire. With a battery power of 1500 mAh, it lasts all day and the 0.6 Ohm resistance ensures an impressive feeling.
The models in the “K” line of the Aspire are also well suited for beginners. With an increasing number (K2 to K4), mainly the battery power and the change of resistance. Another advantage is that a replacement evaporator is always provided. However, the evaporator can wear out and must therefore be replaced regularly.
If you attach great importance to design and ease of handling, the BO ONE from BO Vaping in France is the right choice for you. The very slim design even saves the user from having to refill the liquid, because the different tastes are in the form of caps that are simply placed on the housing and exchanged when the liquid is empty.
The Joyetech eGo AIO Starter Set is available in many colors and, like the PockeX, it offers good performance and at the same time many features, such as a tank light in different colors.
What should I pay attention to as a beginner in e-cigarette?
In summary, the perfect e-cigarette for beginners is easy to find if the following points are observed :
- Buying a set of cigarettes saves you money and you can start smoking immediately.
- If you use the e-cigarette all day long, you should make sure you have a sufficient battery.
- It is better to buy a spare part too soon than too late. Nothing is more annoying than not being able to continue smoking because of a missing part.
- The pulling characteristics of an e-cigarette can be very different from those of a cigarette. Airflow control can be used to change the resistance to airflow.
- Initially, the emphasis should be on ease of use; there is plenty of time for tinkering, experimenting and tinkering once you have become accustomed to steam.
- All beginnings are difficult. Change is both a change of habits, but it is well worth it!
