What is vaping?
Put simply, “Vaping” is the act of inhaling vapour that is created by a personal vaporizer (mod) or electronic cigarette. Because there is no combustion or burning, a person who is vaping is not being exposed to the carcinogenic compounds that come from tobacco cigarettes. Products used for vaping can contain nicotine in order to simulate smoking tobacco cigarettes.
How do vaping devices work?
All vaping devices work in the same fundamental way: A battery powers a coil heating element that turns a liquid solution known as e-liquid into an aerosol.
The rechargeable batteries in the device power heating elements called atomizers, which use low heat to vapourise or turn liquid (e-juice) from the tank or cartridge into mist/vapour.
What is TC (Temperature Controlled) Vaping
Temperature controlled vaping is when a vaper has the ability to set the temperature of their atomizer coil to their preferences. When a the temperature of the atomizer coil is set it will not change during use.
Only devices that have temperature-sensing settings can be used for temperature-controlled vaping.
Why should I vape?
Vaping provides you with the sensations and, in certain cases, the nicotine that smoking provides, but it is not smoking. In fact, from a flavour perspective, we believe vaping is now more enjoyable and satisfying than smoking ever was.
What device do I need to buy?
This is a very tricky question, but our advice is that at the minimum, you should purchase a Subvod or equivalent.
These devices offer the best balance between satisfaction and price, and should be the entry point for anyone wishing to start vaping.
Can I vape anywhere?
The short answer here is no. Sadly, many Cities and Counties have chosen to prohibit vaping in public places, shoehorning vaping into smoke free legislation. Nevertheless, it’s wise not to assume that you can vape anywhere just because it’s not illegal. Premises owners are entitled to prohibit vaping on their property, and many do.
Is vaping right for me?
If you’re an adult smoker then the answer is yes. Non-smokers should not take up nicotine in any form. The addictiveness of nicotine as provided by vaping devices is as yet not fully understood, but it should be assumed that it does have the potential to cause dependence.
What are PG or VG liquids?
PG (propylene glycol) and VG (vegetable glycerine, or glycerol) are ingredients in e-liquid, which create the vapour. Both are widely used in a variety of products for human consumption. PG is associated with a stronger “throat hit” but with less visible vapour, whereas VG has a sweetish taste and produces a much more visible vapour. Some vapers find PG irritates their throat and lungs and choose to use VG based e-liquids instead. Some e-liquids contain a blend of both ingredients to balance out the characteristics of each.
What e-liquids should I get?
Again, there is no one-size fits all answer here, so the best thing you can do is to try out a few e-liquids and see which one suits you. Interestingly, don’t assume that you need an authentic tobacco flavour. There are some good ones out there, but we find that the vast majority of vaper’s end up choosing a flavour other than tobacco, and this happens very quickly if they try a few different ones to begin with. In terms of PG/VG, you’ll have to try for yourself and decide what you like.
What strength e-liquid should I buy?
This is the trickiest question of all because ultimately it’s a personal preference. You need to try out vaping to see what you like.
There are two basic styles of vaping. Put simply, some vapers prefer a stronger nicotine e-liquid but on a lower powered device, whereas others prefer less nicotine but on a more powerful device. And some people are somewhere in the middle!
Also, vapers differ in how much nicotine they need, and how much they want to vape overall. So, if you want to vape less, use a stronger e-liquid, if you find you’re getting too much nicotine from the amount you like to vape, move to a less strong liquid.
Can I save money over smoking?
Yes, absolutely. Although how much you will save depends on several factors:
How much cigarettes or tobacco costs where you live.
The amount you spend on devices (this becomes a hobby for many!)
That said, with a good setup you should be able to save considerable amounts of money, and the more focused on saving money by vaping you are, the more you will save.
What should I look for when choosing a vaping device?
There is a huge range of vaping devices available, and they come in all shapes and sizes. When choosing your first device you will be making your choice based on looks and price/performance. It’s hard to give generic advice.
However, do make sure you consider this: You will always want to have a device charged up and to hand. We have a selection of devices which may suit your needs HERE
Can I quit smoking by vaping?
We are prevented from talking about this by federal regulations which came into force in 2016
It is impossible to say whether YOU can quit smoking by vaping. The only thing we can say with certainty is that there are many people who are known to have quit smoking by substituting with vaping.
Whether you will be one of those people depends on a few factors, such as how motivated you are, how much effort you make finding a device that works for you, and how much you find you enjoy vaping to being with. The only way to find out is to try!
