Getting Started

GETTING STARTED

Vaping is known to be an electronic cigarette, or e-cigarette, that imitates the consequence of smoking by turning a liquid, known as e-liquid or juice, into vapor. The liquid itself is made up of part nicotine, so you can get your nicotine hit in this way – unless you are only vaping for flavor and making use of a zero-nicotine e-liquid. The vapor is a substitute for the smoke you would have taken in a while taking the conventional cigarette.


There is one cardinal difference between smoking and vaping that has made organizations like Public Health England said it is 95% safer than smoking a traditional cigarette. Vapor comes as a result of the process of heating whereas the conventional smoke comes from the process of burning. Supporters of e-cigarettes argue that the burning is what leads to a lot of the dangerous chemicals related to conventional smoking.


FLAVORS

One of the greatest differences between smoke and vapor is the flavor. E-liquid has numberless flavor possibilities, and the flavor is one of just three or four significant ingredients that make up the liquid.

  • Vegetable Glycerin (VG) is a sweetening tool, preservative or thickening agent used majorly in the food industry and also, used a in cosmetics as moisturizers. In vaping, VG gives you the ‘gas, and it’s non-harmful. It is understandably thick and needs more power to evaporate, but can produce more vapor.

  • Propylene Glycol (PG) has a feeling like that of inhaler and gives the feeling of a throat hit, like the one you get when smoking. PG shows no grounds of being harmful or carcinogenic. PG is thinner than VG and consequently doesn’t make use of as much power to become a vapor.

  • NICOTINE. The last ingredient is nicotine, though many people love to enjoy vape with nicotine free liquid, and like to vape purely for the flavor taste.

Some of vaping’s quality, when compared to nicotine patches or gums, is in its similarity to the normal experience of smoking. You can get a throat impact, the same as taking in the smoke of a cigarette, you breathe out, and you have something to hold. Some vaping devices provide a direct-to-lung experience, while some are more comfortable with the direct-to-mouth.


As you become more used to vaping, you will learn and find out your personal tastes, for example some people like their vape a little warmer than others, some like it to be more of a throat hit (choosing a higher PG combination) and some love a big flavor and a lot of vapor clouds (choosing a higher VG combination).



BATTERIES

Rechargeable lithium ion batteries are the source of energy needed to vaporize our e-liquid. The capacity of the battery has a strong determinant in the amount of vapor produced and the duration a battery will last before needing to be recharged again. The essential things to take into consideration when choosing a battery are output (volts) and capacity (mAH).


TANKS

There are two kinds of heating elements that transform e-liquids into vapor. Cartomizers and atomizers have the same role but work in a bit different way. Cartomizers are one-piece units made up of a heating element encircled by batting that soaks up the liquid to be vaporized. Atomizers consist of a mesh heating element without batting and need a liquid-filled cartridge to drop liquid directly on the mesh.


TESTING

It’s extremely important to purchase e-liquid that has been tested properly. When testing, we authenticate the strength of the e-liquid and make sure that no harmful compounds are present. This is done so the safety of users will not be compromised.
