10 Tips for Making the Switch to Vaping

Making the switch to vaping can seem confusing if you don’t know the lay of the land. Unlike analogs, ecigarettes and vaporizers come in many shapes and forms. Then there's a range of different e-liquids you can choose from, almost like choosing between tobacco brands. To make the switch to vaping as seamless as possible, we’ve come up with 10 tips to help you along the way!

Tip #1: Learn the Difference Between Ecigs and Vaporizers

First things first - would you prefer an ecigarette that has a similar look and size to an analog cigarette, or is the versatility of a vape pen more up your alley? Ecigs are popular for their small size and their ease of use. If you want to start simple, this is the way to go.

Vape pens, like those in our V2 Pro Series, are a little larger and more versatile. With a vaporizer, you can vape all sorts of materials, not only nicotine e-liquids. They also allow you to fill up vape cartridges with more e-liquid, so if you think you’re gonna go through a lot of vape juice, you may want to go with a vape pen.

Tip #2: Choose Between Prefilled or Refillable Cartridges

When it comes to e-liquids, you can get them in a variety of forms. If you’re looking for something easy, go with a prefilled cartridge for you ecig. You just pop it onto the battery, vape until it’s empty, then replace the cartridge.
 
If you think you might enjoy mixing e-liquids, a refillable cartridge makes more sense. Refillable cartridges are also great for trying a variety of flavors and strengths. The only real difference is the fact that you have to purchase a bottle of e-liquid and fill the cartridge up yourself. Just make sure you get the right cartridge for the ejuice you choose!

There are two types of e-liquids you can choose from: PG and VG. You can learn more about the differences between PG and VG on our blog, but in short, PG offers a stronger throat hit and VG flavors are more viscous, smooth and sweet.
 
The important thing to keep in mind if you are using refillable cartridges is to get a PG cartridge for PG and VG cartridge for VG flavors.

When it comes to the actual flavor itself, there are many to choose from. If you’re just starting out, you may want to find a tobacco flavor that matches a brand you are familiar with. You can match V2 E-Liquid flavors to popular tobacco brands before you make your decision.
 
While tobacco flavors are usually the first ones people try, some of the most popular e-liquids are fruity or specialty flavors. If you’re a menthol smoker, there are plenty of minty menthol flavors to choose from as well.
