First Kit Tips: All You Need To Begin Vaping
Posted on January 12, 2017 | By Hope Macklin
Electronic cigarettes and vaping kits are intimidating to most beginners. It’s a hobby that’s different in so many ways. Given the number of choices available, it can be downright confusing.
What you need is a kit for the absolute beginner. This usually incorporates the basics but also some peripherals or vape pen accessories, which will help the experience rise to your expectations.
The basic kit
A vaporizer starter kit or basic kit is very cheap (around $10) although it can fall in any price range, and will have the following:
• a standard e-cigarette battery of 650 mAh power
• a clearomizer or liquid tank (usually the CE4 type)
• an USB charging lead
If the standard battery is not enough for your daily vaping needs, then you may want to replace it with a bigger one (around 1000 mAh and above). It is also possible to achieve a better performance by adding an additional battery to help the standard one.
Starter kits tend to have pre-installed coil atomizers, because novice users don’t have the necessary experience to switch and install these. Also, it may include a spare coil atomizer, so you can learn to make the switch as needed. The models that are the easiest to use have only one button. Such simple kits usually look like pens, are easy to operate and to carry around.
What you need to focus on is the tank and the battery. These will determine how much liquid you can put in and for how long you can be using the kit with one charge. The USB charging capabilities will of course help you power up your kit when the battery goes down.
Upgrading your vaping kit with accessories
When you begin to wish for more from your kit or want to customize your experience, you can upgrade your gear with special accessories or extras. Vape accessories include various clearomizer types, variable voltage batteries, coils and more. Don’t forget to have a micro USB charging cable that was especially made for e-cigarette usage. In addition, it must be of the same brand. It can be very dangerous to recharge the battery with a less compatible accessory. The mouthpiece is yet another important accessory – you may want to have a drip tip replacement.
As you browse vaping web stores and sites, you will come across the sub-ohm vaping concept. While it may be tempting to try it, it’s best to wait until you have some experience. As a beginner, you should stick to coils with values above 1 Ohm (for example 1.8 Ohm).
As you start your journey into vaping, pay attention to the coil system as you purchase your first vaping pen. The best kind is that which easily slides in and out when changed. Your personal vaporizer must have perfectly fitting parts and zero leaks.
