MR MAJOR VAPOUR'S BEST VAPING TIPS FOR BEGINNERS
INVEST IN PREMIUM E-LIQUIDS
Trust us, it's worth putting a little extra money down for a high-quality e-liquid.
You may find cheap Chinese e-liquids online, but you're putting yourself at risk. Often low-quality e-liquids contain impurities, which can make you sick.
Unless you're excited about doctor bills, stick to a reputable manufacturer.
Premium vapor juices use pure food-grade ingredients and have a phenomenal reputation. Do your research!
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE TASTE
One of the most exciting and important parts of a terrific vaping experience is which flavours you choose.
There are plenty of stores which offer a variety of sample packs to let your taste buds explore.
You can choose from many categories of flavours including tobacco, dessert flavours, food, candy, savory, drinks, and more! You can even mix and match flavours to create your own unique combination. The possibilities are endless.
KNOW YOUR PG/VG RATIOS
We're here to give you the lowdown on PG/VG ratios.
You see, high or 100 VG (vegetable glycerine) e-liquids produce thicker smoke and smoother hits.
Low VG juice creates smaller clouds and a deeper "throat hit". So, depending on the cloud effect and flavour you're wanting to achieve, you'll need to decide your preference on a higher or lower VG.
High VG juice is typically considered better quality in terms of fewer allergies, no throat hit, being naturally sweet, and providing killer smoke clouds.
There's more than just buying and vaping when it comes to e-liquids.
For starters, it's very important to shake your e-juices before every use. Why? Doing so mixes up the PG/VG and nicotine levels to ensure you get the best quality vape every time. Also, make sure to keep your e-liquids out of direct sunlight which can decrease the nicotine levels.
Another definite no-no is leaving your e-liquid bottles open. Letting it breathe for a few minutes if the flavour is too intense is perfectly fine, but leaving it open any longer than 30 minutes will greatly sacrifice the flavour of the juice.
DARK ROOM = RICHER FLAVOR
If you ever buy a bottle of premium e-liquid that seems stale or is lacking in the flavour department, try letting it sit in a dark room for a week or two. Much like fine wine, most e-juices offer a richer flavour after allowing the flavours to marinate together in a dark place for a few weeks.
PLASTIC TANK WARNINGS
Acidic flavours such as menthols, citrus, essential oils, and cinnamon can warp or crack plastic tanks (a majority of vape starter kits come with plastic tanks, so beginners beware).
If you're crazy about these types of acidic flavours make sure to invest in a quality glass or Pyrex tank to avoid any potential damage. Better safe than sorry.
CLEAN YOUR E-TANK REGULARLY
On a regular basis, make sure you're emptying and cleaning out your e-tank.
It's really simple to do and should be done at least once a week.
Simply disassemble your vape, pour out remaining e-liquid, and rinse the tank, mouthpiece, and atomizer under running, hot water.
Let everything air dry. If you don't perform this on a regular basis, you'll likely end up with nasty build-up, leaks, and bad tasting flavours.
CHECK BATTERY CONNECTIONS
Checking your battery connections regularly will ensure your battery and vape are working correctly to prevent any issues.
All you need to do is unscrew the battery and check for any e-juice build-up on the parts where the battery and atomizer connect with one another. Wipe off any grime and you're done!
CHANGE YOUR COILS
Your coils directly affect your vaping experience, and beginners often don't realize how important it is to do this step.
When you start noticing any build-up on your coils or the flavour turns into a burnt and repulsive flavour, it's time to change them!
After you've changed your coil, you'll want to prime the wicks with e-liquid to avoid any bad tasting, dry hits right afterward.
The next time you go to vape, take a few quick hits without inhaling to allow the flavour to even back out.
KEEP EXTRA BATTERIES HANDY
If your current battery dies, you're out of luck. It's smart to keep an extra set so you can switch them out easily.
You'll never have to wait hours for it to charge to get your next hit! Keeping extra batteries in your purse or at work is also a good idea to ensure you always have a reliable backup ready to go.
Keep them in a case to protect them and never use them with any nicks or cuts in the skin.
MULTIPLE FLAVORS, MULTIPLE TANKS
Can't decide between the tangy DLP or mouth-watering Cinnaroll? We don't blame you - they're both delicious.
If you do have more than one favourite flavour, it's worth it to invest in an extra tank to save time and not be a victim to "flavour ghosting".
No more rinsing and cleaning tanks and wicks every single time you want to switch flavours! Simply switch tanks and you're good to go.
AVOID VAPER'S TONGUE
Sometimes when you vape a single flavour of e-juice for so long, you're not able to taste the flavour anymore. It's called vaper's tongue, but don't freak out and rush to the doctor, because it's not a serious condition.
In fact, it happens to many e-cigarette users. We just wanted to give you the heads up so you can avoid it.
It's a quick and easy fix! Switch to a new flavour for a little while and then go back to the original flavour. Also drinking lots of water and keeping hydrated will help with vaper's tongue, too.
Try a palette cleansing flavour like a Lime or Menthol that helps also.
If you often vape on-the-go, keep a small bandanna or cloth with you to clean up any leaks. You can also wrap it up to protect your vape and/or e-liquids from damage while you're out and about.
HAVE FUN AND EXPERIMENT!
Far too many people give up too easily because they started with the wrong flavours, didn't like their device, or didn't have the proper information to help them along. Don't give up and don't be afraid to experiment to find out what works best for YOU.
