A Beginner’s Guide to Buying a Vape

With so much information available on vaping, you may feel overwhelmed with some of the words that sound so foreign. Taking advantage of a beginner’s guide to buying a vape addresses most of these challenges. There are basically four things that you need to know before setting out to choose a piece of vaping equipment.

How It Works

While you may be new to vapes and vape mods, there is no need to feel uncomfortable while trying to learn. Your preferred liquid is held at the tank of the device you choose. Cotton wicks are found inside of it for absorbing the liquid. The coils in the tank, also known as clearomizer, get heated up when your preferred vaping device is activated. This process causes the juice to evaporate so you can inhale the vapor.  Here is a visual look of how everything comes together.


What an e-cigarette simply does is to convert liquid into vapor for the purpose of inhaling. Based on the different needs of users and how they want to use a vaping device, various types exist. The cartomizer, clearomizer, and glassomizer make up the entire device called atomizer. An e-cigarette’s components include the coils, the tanks, and the battery also called the mod.

The function of the battery is to power the device while the tank holds the wicks, e-juice and heating coils. The coils, on their part, heat the wicks to create vapor.

Type of Tank

Although the function of the tank remains the same across all vaping devices, they exist in various types. Tanks come in different volumes and this is what you may want to consider based on your budget. Apart from the size, tanks come in plastic and glass sub-ohms. Plastic tanks breakdown more easily and require constant replacements. The bottom line remains that the tank of your vaping device holds the e-juice.

The Frequency of Changing The Coils

Eventually, all the coils of a vaping device wear out and require to be replaced. You may choose to go for coils that are rebuildable, or simply go for an outright replacement depending on your preference. Some coils are made of stainless stell while others are ceramic in nature. Changing the coil is a breeze and becomes necessary when you realize that the taste of vapor has drastically reduced.

These four factors are what beginners should consider before deciding on the vaping device to go for. Your budget will also determine what you eventually go for.
