Things to Know Before Buying Your First Vape

Vaping can be a great hobby, but the options can also be overwhelming when you're starting out. Here, we'll provide a few tips to follow before getting your first vape.

The range of vapes available includes everything from a budget disposable vape to the premium PAX3 vaporiser. With so many different devices, it's good to get an understanding of the vape world before buying your first vape.

Understand the Different Types of Vapes

There are many different types of vapes out there, and this can be overwhelming when purchasing your first one. Consider what you want to get out of it - do you want to use it occasionally on a night out, or every day? It's usually best to begin with something small such as an e-cig or pen vape, as these devices are easy to operate for beginners.

Consider Your Budget

Vaping devices can vary greatly in terms of cost, so it's a good idea to consider your budget before looking for a new vape. They can cost around $30 for a basic vape to over a hundred dollars for a high-end product. If you're just starting out, it can be a good idea to experiment with cheaper vapes to find what you like before settling on a more luxurious item.

Decide Which Substance You Want to Vape

When choosing a new vape, it's important to consider what substances you want to vape. Certain vapes are designed for use with a particular substance and it's never a good idea to use a vape with something it wasn't designed for.

If you're vaping e-liquid, remember to consider your e-liquid flavours and what nicotine level you want. E-liquids are available in a wide variety of flavours, ranging from cigarette-like tobacco flavours and menthol to fruity and sweet flavours. 

Consider choosing the flavours you want before picking out your vape. Keep the taste exciting by mixing and matching flavours or switching them out every few days. 

If opting for a disposable vape, you won't be able to change the flavour so choose carefully as these can last anywhere from 1-2 weeks (depending on usage). 

Learn How to Care for Your Vape

When you first buy a reusable vape, it's always a good idea to read the instructions included. Vapes need regular cleaning to ensure they work properly and to a high standard. Invest in some specialist cleaning supplies to ensure the longevity of your vape and that its mechanisms stay operational.  

Familiarise Yourself with the Law

Some areas have restrictions on the use of vapes and where you can use them, as well as what substances can be used in them. Many places also have age restrictions on who can purchase and use a vape. Always be mindful of the law and avoid getting in trouble.
