Top Tips for How to Vape

xva

Vaping is becoming increasingly popular as a way for people who enjoy nicotine to “smoke” without exposing themselves to the tar and toxins in cigarettes. A lot of former smokers now use electronic cigarettes instead of smoking the traditional way, and there are a huge number of young people who are vaping without ever having touched a regular cigarette. If you are interested in learning how to vape, this guide will help you to get started.

What are Personal Vaporizers?

A personal vaporizer is a small, battery powered device that will provide the user with metered doses of nicotine, to be inhaled, by vaporizing some wax, e-liquid or “juice”. The e-liquid or wax is often flavoured, and there are some very interesting and unusual flavours on the market, which is one reason why so many people have made a hobby out of vaping.

There are some people who simply purchase disposable e-cigarettes which taste just like normal cigarettes. Those people have no interest in learning how to vape using more complex devices, and are interested in e-cigarettes purely for the fact that they are more socially acceptable, may often be smoked in areas where traditional cigarettes are forbidden because of the fire or health and safety risk, and because it is thought that they are less of a health risk too.

Electronic cigarettes tend to come in three parts. Those parts are the battery, the atomizer and the cartridge. The battery is usually a rechargeable one that is built-in to the device and can be charged via a plug or via a USB cable. The atomizer is the part which contains a heating element, and the cartridge is the part that contains the juice. Sometimes the juice is refilled from a bottle and sometimes the entire cartridge is replaced with a new, proprietary cartridge that is sold by the maker of the device.

Getting Started

If you are just learning how to vape then you should look at buying one of the user-friendly, easy to refill vape kits. Save the more sophisticated kits until you have decided whether you truly enjoy vaping and you know what sort of features and options you want from your vape kit.

In a basic electronic cigarette, the cartridge is a sealed device that you can change to top-up with fresh liquid or to change the flavour that you are smoking. When the cartridge is screwed in to the electronic cigarette, the filter will make contact with the bridge that connects to the atomizer. The cartridge filter will have absorbed some of the e-liquid, and will continue to soak up more and more liquid as necessary. The bridge will absorb some of that liquid through capilliary action, and it will transfer into the reservoir, ready to be smoked.

When the cigarette is switched on (something that is usually done by repeatedly tapping a button on the cigarette – newer models do not have a single-tap activation, for safety reasons), then it is ready to be smoked. Inhaling on the e-cigargette will pull the liquid from the reservoir into the atomizer pot. The pot contains a wick, which soaks up the liquid, and then the liquid will be vaporized by the coil that surrounds the wick. The coil reaches very high temperatures so this all happens very quickly, and it will cause the liquid to vaporize and pass through the mouthpiece, where you inhale it.

Is Vaping Like Smoking

When you are learning how to vape for the first time, one thing that you are likely to notice is that vaping does not feel the same as smoking. Most smokers take short, hard puffs, while vaping tends to work better with longer drags. To get the best experience out of smoking an electronic cigarette, you should try to do a longer, more controlled pull of four or five seconds. This will get you a nice big cloud of flavourful vapour.

Choosing What to Smoke

Depending on the type of electronic cigarette you have purchased, you will have several options for what to smoke. Most electronic cigarettes are designed for people to use with propelyne glycol based e-liquids. This type of liquid vaporises quite easily, and will give you a good, satisfying drag. Start with a small order of a few different flavours and try them all until you find something that you like. Note that propelyne glycol tends to produce a small amount of sweet vapour.

If you do not like propelyne glycol’s taste, or you are allergic to it, then you may want to try some vegetable glycerine based juices. These tend to have less sweet flavours, but they produce more vapour. Some electronic cigarettes do not burn vegetable glycerine as well as they do propelyne glycol, however, so you may want to check with the manufacturer to see what types of liquid they recommend.

Another thing to look at is the nicotine content. You can get vapors with no nicotine in them, and there are liquids that have as much as 4.8 percent nicotine – although these are quite hard to find. The average amount of nicotine is somewhere between 2.4 and 2.6 percent. The amount of nicotine that you should use will depend on how much you used to smoke. If you smoked just one pack of traditional cigarettes per day, or less, then you will most likely not need anything more than 1.2 percent nicotine for your e-liquid. One option, if you are refilling your nicotine via a bottle, is to buy stronger nicotine concentration liquids, and then water them down with zero nicotine liquid of the same flavour until you find a balance that suits you.

One thing that you should remember is that while there are some relatively plain eliquids, none of them will be an exact replica of a real cigarette, because they would lack the flavour from the combustion. If you want something that is similar to traditional smoking then menthol is the best bet. Most people find that they will enjoy a lot of different flavours and that experimenting with the hundreds that are on the market today is a huge part of the fun for them.

Whatever you do, store your eliquids carefully. Keep them out of direct sunlight so that they do not lose their flavour, and use them before their expiration date. Keep them well out of reach of children, too. The bright colors and strong smells can be very appealing to children, and they may try to drink the liquids, or at the very least smell and handle them. Concentrated nicotine can be toxic – especially to a young child. Store the liquids in a locked medicine cabinet so that they do not accidentally find them. When you handle the liquids yourself, take care not to get any on your skin, and if you do spill some, rinse it off immediately. Getting it in your mouth or eyes could be very unpleasant.

Smoking vs Vaping

Some people swap between smoking and vaping depending on the occasion. Vaping tends to be far less expensive than smoking, but still offers a great experience because the juice/liquid comes in so many flavours. What some people do is make vaping a day-to-day activity and then only smoke high quality cigars, cigarillos or cigarettes in social circumstances, to make them an experience to be enjoyed, rather than an expensive thing that is nothing more than a threat to their health and a drain on their cash.

Steps On How To Refill A Cartomizer With E Liquid!

4123-300×225

Most e cigarette cartridges (or cartomizers as they are sometimes referred to as) are meant to be disposable, but a lot of e cig companies send the electronic cigarette along with a few empty cartridges so that you can fill them yourself at home with whatever e liquid you want. It is even possible to refill a disposable cartridge with the e liquid that you have at home. There are lots of advantages to this, which we will discuss in the coming paragraphs, but I wanted to start off by saying that there are many tips and tricks on how you could refill a cartridge and what I am going to pose is just one among the many. A few new ones have a tricky design, so it might be a tad difficult in such cases.

Advantages of Refilling Your Own Cartomizer With E Liquid

The advantages of filling your own cartridge with a preferred e liquid are vast. For starters, you can refill e liquids almost instantly instead of waiting for new cartridges to be delivered to your house. Most new disposable cartridges aren’t usually filled to its limit, which will tamper with the effectiveness of your smoke. By filling it yourself, you can make sure that doesn’t happen! Best of all, refilling it yourself is much more economical and you get more drags per cent when compared to buying new filled cartridges.

There is however one downside to this method, which is taking a bit of effort to get things done. But if you have a nice case that carries about 5 cartridges, then it won’t be much of a hassle. The following is the easiest way to refill a cartridge.

Steps on How to Refill an E Cig Cartridge/Cartomizer with E Liquid

Step 1: Get E Liquid with a dropper or syringe. Separate the cartomizers from the rest of the e cigarette.

Step 2: Remove the cap (on the side where you put your mouth) with the help of a safety pin, a tooth pick or anything that’s pointy, long and doesn’t break.

Step 3: You will find a rubber cap or condom to prevent the juice from slipping out into the mouth piece. Remove that the same way you removed the cap on Step 2.

Note: In certain e cigarette designs, this method won’t be possible because it is a totally different design.

Step 3: You have now reached the actual area where the e liquid or e juice is to be added to. Take a dropper or syringe and slowly fill the cartridge. If you have exceeded the limit, don’t panic. Just take a tissue paper and remove the excess or you could just take a towel or tissue, put it on the opposite side of the mouth piece and blow slowly from the mouth piece till its reached its optimum limit.

Step 4: Put back the rubber cap or condom and the cap.

Step 5: Attach the cartomizers to your e cig.

Step 6: Enjoy.

If you have any questions, do feel free to ask us. If you have other innovative ways to refill a cartridge with a e liquid, then do feel free to let us know.

Should I Buy the Lavatube VV?

hot-sale-2013-brand-new-great-lava-tube-vv

Variable-voltage vaping isnt for everyone. Although I believe that the Lavatube VV gives a heavy or long-term smoker the best possible chance of switching to electronic cigarettes while remaining completely satisfied and free of nicotine cravings, the Lavatube VV may be a bit of a challenge to use correctly if you are completely new to electronic cigarettes. In addition, people who smoke less heavily may be better served by a smaller electronic cigarette such as the Inferno, which costs less and is capable of producing a little over 75 percent of the vapor that the Lavatube VV produces.

Lavatube Variable-Voltage and Social Smokers

If you only smoke while youre out with your friends, your best bet is an electronic cigarette thats small, stylish and simple to use something that can last all night without needing to be recharged or refilled. In this situation, the Lavatube VV may not be the best product for you because of its size, weight and relatively complicated operation. I believe that the Magma Tank electronic cigarette may be a better option for social smokers; its the same size as a 100s cigarette but doesnt compromise on e-liquid storage capacity or vapor production. To fill the Magma Tank, you need only pop the top off of an empty tank, fill the tank with e-liquid, replace the cap and push it into the tank atomizer. Not only will you not have to worry about bad smells cramping your style at parties, but youll probably start a new trend among your friends as well.

Lavatube Variable-Voltage and Light Smokers

The Lavatube VV produces an incredible amount of vapor so much that some electronic cigarette owners find they can switch to a lower-nicotine e-liquid without feeling any cravings after purchasing the Lavatube VV. If youre a light smoker, though, the vapor produced by the Lavatube VV may actually prove to be too much. You might like the Inferno Tank electronic cigarette instead; it produces slightly more vapor than the Magma Tank while holding a bit more e-liquid more than 1 ml in each tank. Like the Magma Tank, the Inferno tank produces a cooler vapor that many light smokers prefer. Although the Lavatube VV can be configured to produce cooler vapor simply by adjusting the voltage downward, I feel the it would be wiser to purchase the less expensive Inferno Tank than to buy the Lavatube VV and lower its voltage.

Lavatube Variable-Voltage and Heavy Smokers

I feel that the choice of whether or not to buy the Lavatube VV is most challenging for long-term and heavy smokers. If you already own an electronic cigarette and are considering the Lavatube VV because youre unhappy with the amount of vapor your current electronic cigarette produces, the choice is obvious: buy the Lavatube VV. Youll be extremely happy with your purchase. If youve never used an electronic cigarette, though, it may be a good idea to get used to vaping before upgrading to the Lavatube VV.

You can measure the vapor production of an electronic cigarette in watts. A standard electronic cigarette has about 5.47 watts of vapor production. Compare this to the Lavatube VV, which produces 12 watts of vapor at 6.0 volts with the included Lavatube atomizer. This is a significant difference. However, the Inferno Dripelectronic cigarette with its included low-resistance Inferno atomizer produces 9.12 watts of vapor. This approaches the performance of the Lavatube VV while being smaller, easier to operate and more forgiving of mistakes.

I believe that the Lavatube VV is the best electronic cigarette on the market, hands down. However, its also a product that works best in the hands of experienced electronic cigarette owners. If youve ever wished that your current electronic cigarette could provide a more satisfying experience, buy the Lavatube VV now. Im certain you will be extremely happy. If youve never used an electronic cigarette before and think it might be a better idea to buy something with a more forgiving learning curve, consider one of the products mentioned above instead. The Lavatube VV will still be around when youre ready to upgrade.
