Beginners Guide

Ok, you have made the big decision, you are switching from smoking cigarettes to vaping, well done!  It may be difficult, but then, nothing worth having is easy. You will be challenged but the experience of our customers tells us that it can be done. This guide will help you switch from traditional cigarettes to vaping with little fuss.  

 

You are embarking on a journey to go smoke-free; it might take you a day, it might take a month, but you can make the switch completely. We are here to help you on your way to becoming a vaper.

 

Just like everyone has their own preference in cigarette brands, we all have different preferences on the type of vape device to use. Even if you tried vaping before and did not like it, don’t give up, try a different device or different nicotine level and you will find one that suits you.

 

While there are many good beginner devices out there, it’s also a good idea to know how they work. The main parts of a standard e-cigarette are a mouthpiece or drip tip, this is the part you put in your lips, this is attached to a tank or atomiser containing eliquid and a heating element known as a coil or wick,  this is the part that contains the cotton to absorb the liquid which in turn receives the power from the battery, heats the oil and produces the vapour. Eventually the cotton inside the coil or wick will burn away and the coil will need replaced, the time a coil lasts is dependant on many factors, how often you use your device, the battery strength etc they are usually just a few pounds to replace but that could be every 3-4 weeks.

 

NB: there are also all in one (AIO) devices where the tank is not removable, but they work the same way.

 

Really there are only three things you need to get right, your device, your nicotine level and your flavour. When you get these things right, you will not look back.

 

Initially it’s not unusual to develop a cough, this is your lungs adjusting to a different substance when you inhale. This will disappear usually in a day or two.

 

When looking for your first device it’s wise to ask yourself the main question, how many do I smoke a day?

 

5-10 a day? Here’s what we would recommend click on the picture to see other colours available.
