Are you new to vaping or thinking about making the switch? VPZ are here to help you through your journey to becoming cigarette free and make it as easy as possible!
What is a vaping device and how does it work?
Vaping is a safer alternative* to traditional tobacco cigarettes, they are battery operated and incredibly easy to use. In a starter ‘pen-style’ e-cigarette, there are three main components:
Tank – This holds your selected e-liquids and is refillable.
Coil – This heats your e-liquid whilst using and is replaceable.
Battery – That powers your device and is rechargeable.
Your device works by heating your selected e-liquid, forming a water-based vapor that you inhale – this vaping sensation feels very similar to smoking, minus the smoke and the 4000+ harmful chemicals that are in traditional cigarettes**.
At VPZ we stock a huge selection of vaping devices, this can be daunting at first but our helpful staff are here to help find you a device that is perfect for your needs. One of our top selling starter kits is the Innkokin Endura T18-E II.
This is a fantastic device to get started on as it is ‘single button use’ you are not required to fiddle about with any settings or adjust any temperatures all you need to do is fill the tank with your favourite new eliquid, click the button three times to turn it on and you are good to go!
What about nicotine strengths?
Worried you might not choose the right nicotine strength for your needs? Check out our helpful table below, this is a great guideline to which strength may be best suited.
3mg or 0.3% (very low) – Up to 5 cigarettes a day
6mg or 0.6% (low) – Up to 10 cigarettes a day
12mg or 1.2% (medium) – Up to 20 cigarettes a day
18mg or 1.8% (high) – Up to 30 cigarettes a day
20mg or 2.0% (very high) – Up to 40 cigarettes a day
However, we would always recommend heading into your local VPZ to chat to our helpful staff about testing and picking a suitable eliquid. We want to make sure you are set up and as comfortable as possible with your new device.
Which e-liquid should I use in my Starter Kit?
So you’ve got your new device and worked out which nicotine strength suits you perfectly, now the big question is – which e-liquid will you go for? With over 500 flavours across the board there is definitely no shortage in choice!
To make the most out of your new kit, it is important to understand which type of e-liquid you can use.
Generally for starter kits, it is recommended to use e-liquids high in PG (Propylene Glycol), this is a Food Grade ingredient that can also be found in bread, dairy products and cake mixes as a food additive.
PG is what is responsible for giving you the throat hit which is similar to that of smoking a traditional cigarette.
A couple of great High PG ranges to have a look at are:
V.O E-Liquids MT Baker E-Liquids UK E-Liquids
