If you have been thinking about vaping, or have just started, take a look at these tips to help you get the most out of your e-cigarette.
Understand the differences
Vaping is slightly different to smoking a tobacco cigarette; therefore, don’t be surprised if you find the sensation is not quite the same. It is suggested that rather than pulling the vapour into your mouth and then inhaling, you inhale straight down into your lungs. This gives you a better sensation and provides a more satisfying experience.
Know your juice
Your e-juice can change colour, so don’t throw it away if it goes brown. If the juice is in your cartridge, it is the coil filtering the nicotine that gives off a brownish colour and this can be prevented by inhaling harder and faster; however, if your e-liquid turns black or opaque, you should throw it out and replace your coil.
Look after your e-cigarette
Treat your e-cigarette like you would your wallet or mobile phone, as it is an electronic device and it is valuable. Additionally, avoid leaving it in the sun or in your car and also ensure that you treat your juices with care, as they will retain their integrity if well looked after.
Always carry a spare battery
This is vitally important for new vapers, especially if using an e-cigarette as an alternative to tobacco. Carrying an extra battery will ensure you always have a charged e-cigarette; alternatively, you may want to carry your charger with you if you know you are going to be somewhere you can plug it in. It is also an excellent idea to carry your bottle of e-juice around so that you can top up whenever you choose and never run dry.
E-cigarettes can cause very mild dehydration or a slightly a dry throat. When you start vaping, its essential that you stay hydrated and drink enough water to keep your throat well lubricated. If you find vaping is making you thirsty, you may want to take shorter puffs, lower the nicotine level or slow down a little.
Don’t share your device
To many people, vaping is a new and exciting trend that they are keen to try; however, it is advisable not to let all and sundry use your e-cigarette, as this is not necessarily hygienic. If you do let others give it a try, always clean the mouthpiece afterwards to ensure it is germ free.
These tips should help new vapers to get comfortable and enjoy their experience right from the start.
