can be the cool in the world of clouds. Regardless, it’s important to choose the right mod when stepping into the unknown for the first time, for your choice will certainly have an impact on your wallet, and more importantly, on your body.
Most people do not have the faintest clue where to begin with when they’re buying an e-cigarette for the first time. There are just so many varieties of vaping mods out there, each equipped with unique (and some similar) features, that picking the right one can be overwhelming.
You don’t have to worry though; this article will help you choose the right e-cigarette for your vaping needs. An e-cigarette that would be the right fit for your pocket, would give you the right “throat hit” and one you actually enjoy vaping.
Choosing Your First E-Cigarette
There are basically three types of e-cigarettes available in the market:
- Disposables (or cigalikes)
- Refillables (or vape pens)
- Vape kits (or box mods)
Disposables are best for vapers who want to “try” vaping without “initially” investing much into it. They are also quite good if you want to vape discretely; once they are out of juice, you can simply throw them away.
Refillables are slightly more expensive than disposable e-cigs in terms of initial outlay (however, they are cheaper in the longer run) and offer you the convenience to switch flavors whenever you may want to.
Vape kits are the most expensive types of e-cigarettes on the market today. They are typically priced in thousands of dollars. They contain a tank that can be refilled with e-juice. Despite their high price, they are still quite popular among the vaping community because of their superior battery life and vapor production.
When buying an e-cigarette, you also need to think about the nicotine strength – or “throat hit”.
Typically, e-cigarettes come in five different nicotine strengths: 3, 6, 12, 18 and 24 mg/ml. The right nicotine strength level depends on how many cigarettes you normally smoke in a day.
If you smoke:
- 1 to 5 cigarettes a day, then you’ll need nicotine strength of 3 – 6mg/ml
- 5 to 15 cigarettes a day, then you’ll need nicotine strength of 6 – 12mg/ml
- 15 to 20 cigarettes a day, then you’ll need nicotine strength of 12 – 18 mg/ml
- More than a pack a day, then you’ll need nicotine strength of 18 – 24 mg/ml
Choosing an e-liquid flavor is slightly more complicated than choosing an e-cigarette type or nicotine strength. Different people like different flavors, so the choice is entirely subjective.
A good rule to follow is, you should always start off with methanol or tobacco flavor. Once you’re accustomed to vaping, you can then experiment with other (more enjoyable) flavors available in the market.
And, well, that’s really all there is to choosing the right type of e-cigarette for your vaping needs.
