Getting into vaping can be very overwhelming to a first-timer. If you don’t know where to start, here’s a handy guide to get you familiar with what kind of vapes are out there, the hardware they require, and the ways vaping is safer than smoking cigarettes.
Before we jump into all that, however, let’s start at the beginning.
Vaping is an alternative to smoking cigarettes that delivers nicotine through heated liquid. It is less harsh than tobacco smoke. The liquid is delivered through a vape rig, which is very customizable from juice flavors to tanks and every piece in between.
With your first hit of a vape pen, start at a low temperature and don’t inhale too hard. If after some adjustments the hit is too harsh, consider switching to a different liquid, as different vape pens produce different levels of nicotine. More advanced vape pens with customizable temperature controls can also alleviate this.
The ideal vape starter kit truly depends on the user. There are three places to start in the vapersphere – vape pens, vape pods, and vape mods. The former are good for the vaper who is ready to blow clouds right out of the gate, while the vape mod is a little more complicated. However, mods allow for more customization and the best battery life, which might be worth the trouble down the line.
Vape pods are the simplest option with disposable pods. Vape pens are relatively simple, but since they’re refillable you’ll have to learn to fill your pod. The experts at Vapor Chasers can help you find an option that’s right for you and show you the ropes.
The powerhouse of the vape. Most vapes come with Lithium-ion batteries which are rechargeable, making them easy on the environment and more cost-effective. Some vapes have bigger batteries than others, so the bigger the base the longer the charge.
Where the e-liquid lives. Depending what kind of vape you have, the tank will either be refillable or disposable. Disposable tanks are regularly referred to as cartridges, and are usually combined with the atomizer thus referred to as a cartomizer.

This connects to the battery and heats up your juice to turn it into vapor. The coil inside the atomizer heats up the liquid and voila – you’re vaping!

Let’s be honest, vaping isn’t harmless. However, if you’re addicted to nicotine or are a regular smoker, it’s a wise alternative to cigarettes.
While the technology is still relatively new, ‘there is now general agreement that vaping use exposes the user to fewer toxicants than smoking tobacco cigarettes,’ according to research by Tobacco Advisory Group of the Royal College of Physicians in 2016.
Side effects can include dry mouth, sore throat, and headaches. Coughing is common within the first few months of vaping, with 57% of vapers reporting they initially coughed when first starting, but 97% did not after getting the hang of vaping.
