What is Vaping?
Let's get technical first...Vaping is the recreational use of inhaling and exhaling the aerosol, also known as vapour, which is produced by an electronic device called a vape or e-cigarette in combination with a vaping liquid referred to as e-liquid, e juice or vape juice.
Vaping at first is quite technical, and there are many options for vape devices and e-liquid, but once you get the gist it's quite simple. I will break down the 2 key questions most beginners ask below and I will try to give you the core principles to vaping to steer you in the right direction to what device & e-liquid best suits you!
What vape device should I buy?
Different Vaping Styles call for different set ups!
There are a few subcategories to vaping that can be a little confusing when you are first starting & trying to work out what's the right piece of kit for you; so we are going to simplify this and give you a summary of each so you can quickly determine which direction you should be heading in.
Mouth To Lung | MTL
Mouth to Lung devices closely simulate the feeling of smoking a real (analogue) cigarette. These devices offer a restrictive airflow to give you the same tight draw you would experience with a cigarette and are suitable for low to high strength nicotine e liquid (0mg up to 50mg). Pod Kits which are easy to use and very similar to a cigarette are in this category, so overall this device type is better suited towards current or ex smokers.
- Cheaper entry price for hardware.
- Suitable with high nicotine strength e liquid inc Nicotine Salts.
- Your e liquid will last longer.
- Longer lasting battery life.
- Easy to use Pod Sytems are in this category.
- Less advanced hardware options.
- Less advanced settings.
Direct To Lung | DTL
Direct to Lung devices simulate the sensation of big draws from shisha; you will inhale the vapor directly into your lungs. To achieve this - DTL devices have a wide and open air flow and output a lot more power to heat the e liquid, which in return creates more vapour. These devices are not suitable for high nicotine strengths as they can feel very harsh on the throat due to the nature of the amount of vapor you are inhaling. Pod Mod Kits and any device that outputs more than 50w is in this category.
- Produces large vape clouds.
- More advanced settings & options.
- Larger Box Mods generally have replaceable battery cells.
- More intense flavour.
- Not suitable with high nicotine strength e liquid inc Nicotine Salts.
