If you have been interested in vaping, either for its purported health benefits over smoking, or the sheer fun of puffing away on billowing clouds of vapor, you may have some questions about getting started. In the following article we will take a closer look at a few things you should know before heading into the market for your very first Vape Mod or Vape Pen.

1. Vaping Won’t Totally Replace Cigarettes (At First)

One of the most common reasons people will be interested in vaping, is that it has advantages over smoking. But, for best results you should not try to make the change all in one fell swoop. There are some aspects of vaping that can be applied to reducing the need for a cigarette, but it is not a total substitute.

The taste and experience are somewhat different between a vape and cigarette. But, there are some manufacturers who have produced a vape liquid very similar to the real thing and even a vape pen that imitates the feel of a cigarette. But, don’t expect to make a switch overnight.

2. Try Not To Be Cheap on Your First Kit

If you are used to spending a mere $10 on a box of smokes, $50 for a good vape unit may seem steep. But, if you do the math you will soon find that including the e-liquid that you will need for the unit, the price is far lower in the long run to use a vape unit.

Still you will need to look for a quality item if you hope to get the full value. Be careful as the market is flooded with cheap imitations of quality products and these can be much cheaper but not be relied on for the same experience.

3. Read the Instructions

Reading the instructions is important to getting the most from your vape unit and properly servicing and cleaning the contraption. It will be tempting to get right into the action, but by reading the instructions before you load and warm up the coils, you will save yourself from many rookie errors and ensure that you don’t break the fairly fragile device.

4. Choose the Right Nicotine Strength for You

If you will be trying to substitute your cigarettes smoking with a vape unit, you will need to consider the amount of nicotine strength you would like to receive. Most people find that a 18mg nicotine content is ideal for them, but if you are a heavy smoker, you will probably need something a bit more potent like a 54mg nicotine content.

5. Battery Hygiene

One of the most important points I wish I had known when I began vaping was the need to keep the battery compartment and terminals cleaned and dry. This will reduce the potential for shorts that can ruin a fine vape unit. Take the time to get in there with a Q-Tip and cleaning fluid to preserve the function of your device. Be sure to check every few days to make sure that the area is still clean before you use it. More resources are available at Dashvapes if you would like to learn more.
