How to Pick the Right Vape for You
Vaping has quickly become one of the most popular ways for people to either smoke without all the harsh chemicals in cigarettes or as a way to quit smoking altogether. Considering vapes were quite basic only a few years ago, this surge in popularity has expanded the vape world and product types immensely.
If you are looking to get into vaping or have yet to learn what any of the products or terms mean, here is a quick guide to get all the tips you need to choose the right vape.
Types of Vapes
The first thing you need to know is that multiple kinds of vapes are available, and they aren’t all made equally.
A cig-a-like vape is exactly what it says on the can. It is the first kind of vape introduced, and it is similar in size and shape to a regular cigarette. They are typically disposable and can come in a multitude of flavors. They have limited puffs, and you can’t change the battery or add more vape liquid.
The next type of vape would be a vape pen. These typically have a reservoir for adding your favorite e liquid Australia, and many have coils you can change when they get old. They are portable, great for anyone who wants a simple vaping experience, and is often very affordable.
Mechanical mod vapes are the ones you have seen before, and they are pretty big and can produce a tremendous amount of vapor, flavor, and nicotine. They are highly customizable and have multiple features, but they are usually more expensive than other vaping devices.
Finally, pod systems are a mixture of a vape pen and a disposable vape. You can either get a pod vape that has a refillable pod, or you get pod vapes that require you to buy the pods, and you change them when they are finished. They are usually very affordable but not as popular as other vape types.
The first thing you need to consider is how much you want to spend on a vape and how much you want to spend on vaping itself. Vapes can vary in price and can suit almost any budget, but the “running costs” are what you need to look out for.
A good example would be a cig-a-like vape and a mechanical mod vape. The box mod will cost more, but you will get a ton of use out of it, and being able to make your own e-liquid and vape it will drive the long-term costs down.
A cig-a-like vape would be much cheaper, but you will use and finish them quite quickly, meaning you will be spending a lot of money buying new ones. Decide how much you want to spend on vaping as a whole, not just on the device itself.
You also need to consider extra costs, such as how often do you need to replace your coil and how much does it cost or how much replacement parts would sit you back. Even simple things like a tank replacement can be pricey if it is hard to find or you need to import it.
Next, decide how much vapor you want your device to produce. Do you want a small amount, like a cigarette, or do you want big clouds? Bigger clouds mean more flavor and enjoyment, but the nicotine content will stay the same in both small and large vapor-producing devices.
Battery Type & Size
Most vapes will have one of three kinds of batteries; they will have disposable batteries you can’t recharge, they will have batteries you can remove and charge, or you can charge the device with a USB-type port.
If you choose a vape with separate batteries, you will need more than one set and a way to charge them, which makes it less convenient and portable. On the other hand, a device that charges via USB is more portable, but you will need a socket to recharge it when it dies.
Pre-Built or D.I.Y
Much like a computer, you can build your own vape in a way that suits you. You can purchase separate parts and put them together in a way that suits your needs and budget, but you can also buy pre-built devices.
These devices aren’t as customizable as you can only usually replace parts instead of using different ones altogether, but they are great for people who just want to vape and don’t care too much about how their vape looks or if they want it to do more.
Vape liquid is the most important component of vaping; therefore, it is something you want to get right. Nowadays, you can purchase all the ingredients you need to make your own liquid at home, saving yourself a ton of money and being able to adjust the flavor and nicotine levels to your liking.
There is also a massive variety of pre-made liquids you can choose from if you don’t want to go through the hassle of making your own.
