A Simple Guide to Vaping and E-cigs
Wednesday, 24 February 2021

There is widespread agreement that vaping numbers are increasing. Global statistics have shown that the use of vaping or e-cigarettes has risen dramatically since 2011. It is estimated that there will be 55 million global vapers by 2021. The global trend among young people, which is mirrored in the US, shows that as many as 27.5% of teenagers are using vape products of some kind. This translates to a huge market, with over $19bn spent on vaping products worldwide in 2018.

It is thus important to make sure that those who are vaping are doing so as safely as they can. As such, it has become critical to provide information such as this guide to allow you to make the right choices.

 

What is Vaping? Is it Different To Smoking Cigarettes?

 
The first thing to know is that there are different types of products, and they are very different from traditional cigarette smoking. E-cigarettes, or e-cigs and vapes, are ways of inhaling nicotine in a vapor rather than in the smoke of traditional cigarettes. There are a number of different types of e-cigarettes. This includes ‘cigalikes’, which look like tobacco cigarettes but are battery-operated, vape pens which are usually shaped like pens or small tubes that contain the e-liquid that contains the nicotine, or pod systems which are compact, rechargeable devices that are shaped like a USB stick.
 
Vaping is a way of inhaling nicotine has proven to be an increasing phenomenon, especially with younger people and those trying to quit smoking. It is also acknowledged by various national health bodies, such as the NHS, as being healthier than smoking and an accepted route to eventually giving up all together. The use of e-cigarettes is one of the ways the NHS promotes less smoking and, as such, has seen a large number of producers joining this bandwagon.
 
So, whilst there is an acknowledgment of the benefits of vaping in relation to smoking traditional cigarettes or pipes, there has been an influx of unregulated and untested products. To protect both the end-user and those genuine companies out there that produce vape liquids and kits, it is important to know what to look for if you have chosen to vape.
 

What to Avoid

 
Do not buy a cheap vape kit from your local corner shop or from the car boot sale, nor should you be looking to save by getting a ‘gently used’ one on E-bay. This is one of the top concerns the Centre for Disease Control in the US has with regard to vaping. Because of the increase in demand, there will always be unscrupulous dealers selling unregulated, untested dangerous products.
 
Buying a premium product that has sufficient positive online, genuine reviews, and a good reputation is worth the time it takes to find it. It is not always the case that the better quality kits are more expensive; there are some extremely well-priced vaping kits available, you just need to spend the time to find them. Some of the best quality vape kits by Superior Vapour show what’s available and the industry-standard prices. It is important to remember that investing the time and money in a good quality kit will ensure you don’t go back to smoking tobacco cigarettes. It will allow you to make the most of your vaping experience.
 

What to Look For

 
Buy a starter vape kit that has been rigorously reviewed. Just as you would check up on your local restaurant, you should ensure that you have read what’s been written by those who have used the specific vape and liquid that you want to start with.
 
The battery life of your vaping kit or e-cigarette is another key thing to look for when you are doing your research and finding the right kit for you. Depending on what kind of kit you need and how much you will be using it, you may need to invest in an extra battery, so you aren’t left out in the cold when you are out or away from home.
 
It is also important to remember that you will need to maintain your vaping kit. A lot of beginners fail to maintain their vaping kit, and this leads them back to tobacco cigarettes. You need to follow the manufacturer’s instructions, so keep this in mind when you are doing your research. Don’t buy something that is too complicated and will take an age to clean and prepare.
 
Be informed and make the right decisions. This guide was a good place to start that process.
