If you have recently given up smoking and are looking for a healthier alternative, then you may wish to try e-cigarettes. Vaping is quickly growing in popularity and not only enables you to avoid the health risks caused by smoking but can also be fun and enjoyable. It may take a little while to get used to using a vaporiser if you are a beginner, but the wide variety of equipment now available means that you can easily find something that suits your needs.

While there is no right or wrong choice to make when it comes to buying a vaporiser, you may wish to try a few different types to see what you prefer. The first step is to look at what is currently available to get an idea of what suits your requirements. With so many brands and types of vaporisers available, you may be unsure of where to start if you have never vaped before. However, choosing a vaporiser is actually quite simple if you know what is involved.

To get started, you will need a battery-operated device, a tank and some eliquid. Vaporisers are available in many shapes and forms. If you have given up smoking and are experiencing cravings, then you can buy ecigs that resemble cigarettes, which are known as “cig-a-likes”. This is also a good choice for those who are looking for a vaporiser that does not stand out too much. There are many types of cig-a-likes, from those that enable you to inhale without having to press anything, to manual devices, which require you to push a button every time you inhale.

Cig-a-likes are available as a disposable or rechargeable device. If you wish to save money, then it may be worth opting for a rechargeable, especially if you are planning to vape on a regular basis. Choosing a rechargeable will enable you to use your vaporiser however often you like, and you can even customise it. Rechargeable devices can be charged using a USB or portable charger. You may wish to opt for a portable charger and have an extra battery on hand if you are planning to use the device while out and about.

If you wish to use a vaporiser only at home, then there are bigger kits available. These are known as desktop vaporisers and are ideal if you are new to e-cigarettes and just wish to practice using them at home or with friends. The downside is that this type of vaporiser can be expensive, especially if you opt for one that is of high quality. However, this type of device is ideal if you really wish to experience the benefits of eliquids.

You will need to select a battery type that suits your needs. If you have decided to opt for a chunkier device than a cig-a-like, then ego batteries are the most common type to use. Ego batteries have a good battery life and some are available with variable voltage, which enables you to have more control over your vapes. The larger the ego battery is, the longer it will last. While you can opt for non-branded ego batteries, you may wish to select batteries that are branded, as they are more likely to be reliable and provide a better experience.

If you are looking for ecig kits that are easy to use, then you can also have a look at mechanical mods. Unlike ego batteries, mechanical mods have no circuitry. While some mechanical mods require a separate battery, you can get devices that already have a battery built in. However, it is important to be aware that some mechanical mods do not come with any safety features and there is a risk of the device overheating.

Next, you will need to think about tanks. The tank is perhaps the most important part of a kit, as this is what delivers the eliquid. Becoming familiar with different types of tanks will help you to decide what is best for you. Clearomisers are tanks that are made of plastic or glass, with a coil that is heated up by the battery, and a wick, which feeds the liquid into the coil. If you want a longer lasting ecig, then a glass clearomiser is a better option than plastic. Plastic clearomisers may be more suitable if you are on a budget, but the glass ones are more durable and you have more options when it comes to choosing an eliquid, as some flavours will have less of a negative effect on the tank.

If you want an e-cigarette that is easy to maintain, then a clearomiser is also easy to clean. You can easily clean the tank out and top up your eliquid. A clearomiser also enables you to see how much liquid you have left in your device, so you will know when to top up. As you become more experienced at using ecigs, you can customise your clearomiser by changing wicks and adding more coils, which will produce more vapour.

Another choice of tank is the cartomiser, though this type of tank is now generally found in older styles of e-cigarettes. A cartomiser can be a little difficult to clean, which means that there is a risk of not being able to completely remove all traces of a previous eliquid. This can impair the flavour of any new liquids that you add and result in an unpleasant experience. If you are looking for a tank that is more modern and generally easier to use and maintain, then a clearomiser is the best option.

Lastly, you can start choosing your eliquid. You can buy eliquid in many different types of flavours. It is better to choose a high-quality liquid, as this will provide you with better flavours and an overall better experience when using ecigs. Experimenting with different flavours will help you to find out what works for you. Like the equipment, the flavour is all down to personal preference.

Vapelux provides a wide range of products, including tanks, kits and a variety of eliquid flavours to suit beginners and ecig enthusiasts. By taking the time to look at different kits, you can easily find a device and eliquid that suits your requirements.
