The technology of vaping has evolved considerably over the past decade. When vaping was new, you could never be completely confident that your device would work correctly and could always expect to do a lot of tweaking if you wanted to have the best possible experience. Things have definitely changed since then. You can always expect a vaping device to give you a great experience out of the box these days – but as with so many other types of gadgets, things can get even better if you’re willing to put a little effort into it.
So, what can you do to take a vaping experience that’s already great and make it even better? Just follow these simple tips.
Always Keep Experimenting With Vape Juice Flavors
No matter how much you might love the vape juice you’re currently using, you should absolutely never stop experimenting with new flavors because that’s a large part of what makes vaping so enjoyable. Flavor, after all, is one thing that vaping has and tobacco products lack. It doesn’t matter what kind of processing tobacco leaves go through; the final result can’t taste like anything other than tobacco.
Vape juice, on the other hand, gets its flavor from food-grade flavorings, and there are hundreds of food flavors in the world. The potential flavor combinations are virtually endless; an e-liquid can taste like almost anything you can imagine.
You want vaping to stay fun and exciting for you, because that helps to prevent any temptation to backslide and return to your old ways of smoking. The way to keep vaping fun is by making sure that you never stop trying new things.
Inhale Gently With a Small Vaping Device
If you’re a new vaper, there’s a good chance that you’re using a smaller vaping device like a pod-based system. There are several reasons for that. One reason is because pod-based systems are small and inexpensive, and that’s what many new vapers want. Another reason is the fact that pod systems are optimized to use nicotine salt e-liquid, which is the vape juice that you want to use if you want your vaping device to deliver nicotine with cigarette-like efficiency.
The final reason why smaller vaping devices are so popular is because they have tight airflow characteristics, just like a cigarette. The reason why you want that as a new vaper is because you need tight airflow if you’re going to inhale the vapor from your mouth to your lungs – which is the same way you inhale when you’re smoking a cigarette.
The problem with tight airflow, though, is that it’s actually possible to inhale so firmly that you end up sucking the e-liquid out of the pod and into your mouth. If you do that, you’re going to get a concentrated blast of nicotine right in your mouth – not fun! If your vaping device spits e-liquid into your mouth when you try to use it, the most likely reason is that you’re trying to puff as firmly as you would puff on a cigarette. Puff gently for the best possible experience with a smaller vaping device.
Keep Your Tank or Pod Full
If you want to avoid harsh “dry hits” when you vape, you need to ensure that the atomizer coil in your vaping device is kept wet at all times. If the atomizer coil is allowed to go dry – even for a brief instant – it’ll glow red and release noxious fumes. You don’t want that to happen, and the way to prevent it is by keeping your tank or pod full. Don’t try to use your device until it’s completely out of vape juice; top it up when it starts to get low. When you look inside your device’s tank or pod, you’ll see that the atomizer coil has small holes to allow the e-liquid to penetrate through to the wick. The e-liquid should always cover those holes. If it doesn’t, it’s time for a refill.
Don’t Push Your Wattage Too Far
If you’ve purchased a vaping device with adjustable wattage settings, it probably didn’t take you long to determine that, the higher your device’s wattage is, the bigger the vapor clouds will be. Every vaping coil, however, has a specific wattage range in which it operates most reliably. In other words, it’s possible to set your device’s wattage so high that it exceeds the capabilities of the coil – and if that happens, the coil’s cotton wick may burn. A burned wick ruins the coil forever, so that’s something you want to avoid at all costs.
On the side of your atomizer coil, you should see a suggested wattage range etched into the metal casing. To keep the coil’s wick in good shape, you should keep your device within that range – and if you enjoy vaping with long, deep puffs, you’re going to want to keep your device closer to the low end of that range. If you’re vaping within your coil’s suggested wattage range and are unhappy with the vapor production of your tank, you should strongly consider buying a more powerful tank.
Listen to Your Body When Choosing Your Nicotine Strength
The most important thing to know about choosing the nicotine strength for your e-liquid is that the more vapor your device produces, the lower your nicotine strength should be. If you’re inhaling bigger clouds, you’re using more e-liquid per puff. Therefore, the e-liquid doesn’t have to be as high in nicotine in order for you to enjoy your desired level of satisfaction.
That recommendation, however, is only a starting point. From there, you’ll need to listen to your body to determine whether the nicotine strength you’re using is right for you. When you vape, do you find the vapor difficult to inhale because it irritates your throat? If that’s the case, your nicotine strength is probably too high. If you can’t satisfy your craving for cigarettes regardless of how often you vape, on the other hand, there’s a good chance that your nicotine strength is too low.
