Everything you ever wanted to know about using e-cigarettes!
Everyone knows and understands just how bad traditional cigarettes are for you. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) cigarettes are responsible for over 8 million deaths per year and approximately 1.1 billion people are smoking around the world.
The increased awareness surrounding the dangers of traditional cigarettes has led more people to try alternatives such as e-cigarettes or vaporizers. Many people that have failed with other nicotine replacement therapies (NRTs) such as nicotine patches, gums, and oral sprays have found e-cigarettes to be effective cessation devices to help them quit smoking a traditional cigarette
In the following article, we’ll discuss the different types of e-cigarettes and the best way to use them.
The Different Types of E-Cigarettes
There are a variety of different e-cigarettes for new vapers to choose from. Each has unique benefits that may appeal to vapers.
Disposable E-Cigarettes – Disposable e-cigarettes are a great introductory product for new vapers to try vaping for the first time. They are also one of the cheapest ways to try e-cigarettes. Some disposable e-cigarettes are used until the battery runs out, and the entire device is thrown away. While other varieties, the cartridge is disposed of once it runs out of e-liquid and a new cartridge is added.
Whichever type of disposable e-cigarette you decide to buy, the initial costs are low. You can usually get them for around $10. It’s an effective way to trial e-cigarettes and decides whether a larger investment is worthwhile. Disposable e-cigarettes are the closest to traditional cigarettes you can get, which makes them great for people looking to make the transition from cigarettes to e-cigarettes.
Cigalike E-Cigarettes – There are heaps of different cigalike devices available for you to choose from. They were one of the first types of e-cigarettes to hit the market, and many vapers consider them to be old and outdated technology. They closely resemble traditional cigarettes and many of them even have a glowing red LED tip. You can choose from a variety of different flavours and brands.
Pen-Style E-Cigarettes – Pen-style mods allow vapers to customize their e-cigarette experience. Vapers can change the tanks, e-liquids, coils, and mouthpieces to suit their vaping style. Some pen-style e-cigarettes have removable batteries, but most models feature internal batteries. Pen-style e-cigarettes produce more flavour and vapour than disposable e-cigarettes. They are more expensive than disposable e-cigarettes but offer a much better vaping experience and last longer. Pen-style e-cigarettes allow vapers to choose from thousands of different e-liquid flavours.
Box Mod E-Cigarettes – Box mods are the next step in the e-cigarette device evolution and allow users to produce large amounts of flavorful vapour. There are a variety of different box mods including sub-ohm box mods, mechanical mods and much more. They are more expensive than pen-style vaporizers and can cost you anywhere from $50 – $250. Box mods are recommended for vapers that are looking to upgrade from pen-style e-cigarettes.
Choosing Your E-Liquid Flavour
There are thousands of different brands, flavours, and strengths when it comes time to choose an e-liquid flavour. You can choose from small bottles of e-liquid up to large bottles, but it’s important to ensure you like a flavour before you buy e-liquid in bulk. You can also order the ingredients that make up e-liquid and create your own.
Regulating Your Nicotine Content
When you purchase e-liquids, you are going to see the nicotine content displayed on the bottle. Different nicotine strengths will suit different vapers depending on what they are looking to get out of vaping. Beginners that are looking to transition away from smoking traditional cigarettes should start with e-liquid that has higher levels of nicotine. This is because smokers are used to a certain level of nicotine in their systems.
When you first attempt to quit smoking, it can lead to strong cravings for nicotine. This is one of the biggest factors which causes people to start smoking again. When you first use e-cigarettes, you should start with an e-liquid that has a higher level of nicotine to help combat the effects of nicotine withdrawal associated with quitting smoking.
