8 Tips for Choosing Your First Vape

Choosing Your First Vape


Ready to start an amazing journey of both flavor and fun?

For many, this is what the experience was like when they began vaping. And the trend is really catching on considering that 8% of Americans vape on a regular basis.

Some people, though, have trouble getting started. That's because the world of vaping is full of confusing terms, and it can be difficult to choose a first vape that is ideal for beginners.

To help you get started, we’ve put together a definitive guide to buying a vape for the first time. Keep reading to discover everything you need to get started!

1. Go With a Starter Kit

You'll have plenty of options available to you when you go to buy your first vape. To make things easier for yourself, we recommend you get a vaping kit.

Vaping kits (sometimes referred to as vaping starter kits) have everything you need to get started. That way, you don't have to worry about buying different components that aren't compatible with one another.

However, just as there are different kinds of vapes out there, there are different kinds of vaping kits. Before you make a purchase, it's important to understand your different options.

2. Understand the Different Kinds of Vape Kits

As you might imagine, vaping kits are built around different types of vapes. By understanding what your different options are, you can make a better decision on a kit.

First up are disposable vape kits. For the most part, good disposable vapes don't have many moving parts or accessories you need to worry about.

Because of that, such vaping kits usually contain a variety of different vape flavors. This makes for a great way to learn more about vapes and discover the flavors that you enjoy the best.

Pod systems are a bit more complicated. These vapes keep the flavor in a separate "pod" along with an atomizer, and you get everything you need in the kit. Such kits are awesome for beginners and provide a lot of e-liquid strength on each puff.

Vape pens are like upgraded pod systems. You get a better battery life and a superior product with vape pens, and the kit gives you all you need to get started.

Finally, vape mods (also known as box mods) are powerful but very complex. They rely on separate tanks which come as part of your kit, and these tanks often offer direct-to-lung inhaling. While mods are fun to play with, we don't recommend one of these for your first vape experience.

3. Consider a Pod System or Vape Pen

You have plenty of vape and vaping kits to choose from. Which one should you start with? We recommend using a pod system or a vape pen.

Why these options? These vapes are small and very convenient to use. This makes it easy to get started and easy to travel with your new vape.

In addition to being very user-friendly, pod systems and vape pens can also be refilled. This can help you save money in the long run. And if you want plenty of nicotine in each puff, these are the choices for you!

4. The Convenience of a Built-In Battery

You may or may not decide to go with a pod system or vape pen. Either way, there are certain things that make a vape ideal for first-time users. And one of those things is having a built-in battery.

There are certain conveniences to having a separate battery. At the same time, you'll have to worry about transporting, storing, and charging that battery. 

Think of it this way: you can always work your way up to devices with separate batteries. In the meantime, a vape with a built-in battery simply gives you one less thing to worry about.

5. Simple Design Is Your Friend

Want a simple rule when buying your first vape? Here it is: simple is better.

Specifically, you are better off choosing a vape with simple controls that are easy to understand. For example, you may want a vape with a single-button or an automatic firing system. Both of these are great choices for beginners.

More advanced vape users like manual firing systems because it helps them produce larger clouds. But like other aspects of vaping, we think this is something first-time users are better off working their way up to.

6. Check the Online Reviews

Trying to decide on a first vape can be pretty intimidating. Instead of figuring everything out on your own, though, you may be better off checking out online reviews.

Let's say that you are leaning toward a specific type or brand of vape. Before you make a purchase, go online and see what people have to say about that vape. For your purposes, you may be better off searching specifically for first-time user experiences with the device.

No online review can answer all of your questions, of course. But these reviews may provide you with answers to most of the questions you have before making your purchase. 

7. Try Before You Buy

What's better than checking out online reviews? Trying the vape out for yourself!

Many who are interested in buying a vape know friends or family members who enjoy vaping. If both you and the other person are comfortable with the arrangement, see if you can use somebody's vape and see what the experience is like.

This option isn't easy for everyone, especially if you don't know anyone who vapes. But if you have the option, "trying before you buy" is a great way to make sure you'll enjoy the vape before you buy one of your own.
