5 Mistakes Every New Vape Enthusiast Makes
There are tons of misconceptions about vaping and the vaping lifestyle out there.
Especially if you're new to vaping, it can be easy to make errors that won't just ruin your experience, but that could also be dangerous.
From understanding what happens if you drink vape juice to helping you to avoid many of the mistakes associated with vaping 101, this post will ensure that you get off to a great start when you're new to vaping.
Read on to learn what not to do, as well as where you can connect with the best vape pens and vape juice that are perfect for newbies.
1. Getting Fancy Mods Right from the Start
We know that when you're just getting into the world of vaping, it can be incredibly easy to get distracted by all of the big tanks, complicated mods, and brightly-colored accessories out there.
You're not even really sure what they do, but you know that you're ready to try them all out!
From sub-ohming to rebuildable atomizers, you feel like the best way to learn is by diving right in.
Stop right there.
We know that everyone is tempted to get ahead of themselves in the vape world. But the truth is, buying and trying out things that you don't know how to use when you've only just mastered how to vape can be incredibly dangerous.
Plus, you run the risk of spending all that money, only to find that you don't actually even like what you've purchased.
Stay on the safe side and start your vaping journey with e-cigs/cig-a-likes, or even vape starter kits.
Learn the basics, then you can graduate to the really good stuff!
2. Forgetting to Turn off Your Device
If you have a manual device, part of vaping 101 is learning how to turn it on before you take a pull.
This allows the coils to heat up the e-liquid, so that you can get those awesome clouds you love so much.
While few struggle to turn on their device, many new vapers forget to turn theirs off. This can seriously kill your battery.
Consider using an automatic vape pen at the start if you know you're a little forgetful.
3. Getting Your Tank Dirty
We know that you don't exactly dream of spending your Saturday afternoon cleaning out your vape tank.
However, especially if you're a big fan of switching out between different types of e-liquid, doing so is absolutely essential.
Once you've graduated from a disposable device to a more complicated mod, you need to learn the basics of cleaning.
Luckily, it's pretty easy.
All you need to do is fill up a bowl with lukewarm water, take off the tank and clean it out with a tissue, and remove any other parts or accessories. Then, place the tank and its parts in the water and let it sit for about five minutes.
You may need to scrub out some gunk with a paper towel.
Always let it air dry for best results.
4. Vaping While Sick
Another mistake many new vapers make?
Vaping while sick.
First of all, this won't exactly speed up your recovery process. But more importantly, it could contaminate your device -- especially if you're using a disposable.
Just wait until you're healed.
5. Picking a Random Vape Juice Flavor
Because there are so many awesome vape juice flavors out there, even experienced vapers have been guilty of this one!
In addition to choosing the right vape juice for your device and your taste buds?
You also need to make sure you're aware of the nicotine level it contains, as well as what it's made from.
If you're getting into vaping to quit smoking, then the strength of nicotine you choose should be related to how many cigarettes you smoked per day. If you smoked less than a pack, try 3mg of nicotine. But, if you smoked more than a pack, 20mg of nicotine is a better fit.
When it comes to the type of e-liquid, remember that VG-dominant is always a better juice for new vapers. That's because it will give you a smoother, more flavorful pull every time.
Always make sure that you fill up your tank when needed, as vaping when things are running on empty will make it feel like you're inhaling burnt fumes.
