What is vaping?

The definition of vaping is the act of inhaling smoke-looking vapor from an electronic cigarette or vape device. Vaping simulates smoking but in a less harmful manner.

A flavored nicotine liquid called vape juice (e-juice) is what’s in a vape, but not all vapes contain nicotine. The user decides vv box mods the flavor and amount of nicotine they wish to use, if any at all.

Vapes are handheld electronic devices designed to produce inhalable vapor. It’s a technological solution to nicotine and tobacco smoke dependency, where the user can choose to step down or control the nicotine consumption similar to using gum or a patch, but with the familiar sensation and hand-to-mouth action as smoking.

The first retail vape was an electronic cigarette designed to look just like a tobacco cigarette. Designed by Hon Lik, it was released by the China-based company, Ruyan, in the early 2000s and in Europe and America around 2007. Now different types of vapes range in design, power, and vapor-making ability, but the basics of their functions and usage are the same as the first one made.

How does a vape work?

All vapes work on the same premise: a battery source (vape mod) powers a heating element (coil) that vaporizes e-juice in a small chamber (atomizer). The user then inhales the vapor through a small mouthpiece.

A vape works as a complete system. No one component is the vape squonk box, it’s what you have when it all comes together. Although many experienced users shop a la carte for mixing and matching vape parts, beginners are advised to stick to pre-packaged kits with everything included to ensure appropriate compatibility.

The power source

The vape mod is a battery device, normally using lithium ion batteries. These devices can come in many forms and sizes. They’re named accordingly, like box mods, vape pens, tube mods, to small designs called pod vapes and e-cigarettes. The term “mod” is a nod to the early days of vaping when users modified devices for more power.

Nowadays, vape mods have a broad range in electronic features and power limits. Some are more advanced and can be adjustable in watts (variable wattage mods) or even controlled in temperature (temperature control mods); others have no adjustability and require no technological understanding from the user.

The levels of power in a vape mod generally dictate the ease of use, as well as the experience required to safely operate them.

Low power: pod vapes, vape pens, e-cigarettes, AIOs (all-in-ones)

No experience required

Small rechargeable battery (unless it’s a disposable e-cig)

Normally without adjustable power

Concealable; ultra-portable

Medium power: AIOs (all-in-ones), tube mods, box mods

Some experience required

Battery safety knowledge recommended

Medium size rechargeable atomizers battery built-in or replaceable

Often with adjustable power (up to 100 watts)

Pocketable (though rarely concealable)

High power: box mods, mechanical mods

Experience is a must

Multiple replaceable batteries (rarely built-in)

Requires battery safety knowledge

Pocketable (but heavy and bulky)

Normally with adjustable power (up to 200+ watts)

The battery is replaced in vapes most often used in vape mods are 18650, 20700, 21700 size. These cells are much stronger than the average batteries in the remote control you and requires a strong understanding of the safety of the battery. That is why, it is strongly recommended that new users purchase a device with a built-in, non-removable battery that can be charged directly in the device from the USB port.

source steam

The steam created in the so-called atomizer vape, sometimes called tank vape. This is a self-contained space is electrically connected to the mod vape. This home-ususally resistance heating element and a metal coil is an absorbent wick saturated with e-juice (which contains the basic ingredients that are similar to the theater "smoke"). When the user takes a hit, the coil heats the fluid from the axis, immediately make steam smoke visible.

All atomizers hold the e-juice (mL), although some more than others detained. Many are designed for simplicity, and others are much more complex and is suitable for fans. In order to ease of use, the four main categories are:

Prefilled: Disposable; non-replaceable coils; disposable

Pods, cartridges, cartomizers

Recharging: multipurpose; non-replaceable coils; disposable

Pods, cartridges, cartomizers

Backfill with replaceable coil: indefinitely dovpo vape mod reusable

Sub ohm tank, clearomizers

Rebuildable: user-installed and coil axis; indefinitely reusable

Each atomizer is written as early acronym with "R", such as RDA, RTA, RDTA, etc.

Just as with mods vape, there are many variations to atomizers. It is important to remember that they must be compatible with the mod vape. Not all will physically fit in all the mods vape, and some are not appropriate because they coil resistance and strength they may need to function properly.

Atomizers coils come in various ranges of resistance (ohms / Ω). Some coils create a thick cloud (low resistance, less than 1.0 ohm) and others make wiser steam (high resistance; near or above 1.0 ohms). Regardless of the opposition, or the type of atomizer, all coils are discarded after time. They do not die like the filament in a light bulb, but the flavor and the steam will decrease after prolonged usage. It can range from a few days to a week or more.

How to vape

The best chance for success is to keep it simple with a device that you purchase. simple vapes in no way inferior to the sophisticated devices, they are just easier to use.

Step 1: Get vape basic starter kit. No matter the look, they all steam makeup the same way. These devices range in price from about $ 20 to $ 60. There are four main categories for types vape kit for you to choose from.

Pod vapes: prefilled or refill; a disposable cartridge

AIO: Rechargeable; coil replaced

E-cigarettes: prefilled or refill; a disposable cartridge

Disposable e-cigarette: prefilled; the entire device is disposable

All vape kit comes with several types of instruction. Because almost all of the devices made in China, the words may be slightly damaged in the instruction manual. However, the instructions will explain how best to use your special kit and will usually have a useful diagram for clarification.

Aside from prefilled kits, all vapes will need to be filled by the user with vape juice. If you find yourself needing more help, do a Google search for a review of the kit you have, in the off-chance your instruction manual doesn’t tell you how to fill your device.

Step 2: Get the best vape juice for the kit type. Choose a flavor that appeals to you, then choose a nicotine level. High nicotine vape juice typically comes in smaller bottles (30 mL or less), and bottles of lower nicotine juice will typically come in larger bottles (30 mL or more). Nicotine preference depends on the user, but there are general recommendations for the best experience with different devices:

Higher nicotine: 12 mg to 60 mg; best with lower power

Medium nicotine: 6 mg to 12 mg; best with low to medium power

Lower nicotine: 0 mg to 6 mg; best with higher power

If you don’t know what specific nicotine level is right for you, determine for yourself which bracket you think you’ll appreciate more. Are you a heavy, light, or recreational smoker? Extra high levels of nicotine (often sold as nicotine salt vape juice) can be felt fastest, and can be a more intense experience. Lower nicotine takes a bit longer to feel, and is normally a less intense experience.

Once you determine whether you want to try low, medium or high nicotine, start at the lowest levels in that range and assess from there—and make sure the power of the device is suited to that level of nicotine.

How to inhale a vape

When you vape for the first time, the way you inhale can make or break the experience. This is extremely important! If you inhale incorrectly, it could lead to coughing or an unpleasant rush of nicotine.

There are basically two types of inhalation techniques: mouth-to-lung and a direct-lung draw. The ideal inhalation technique depends on the vape you want to use.


MTL hits will normally work best in smaller vapes dovpo topside dual with high resistance coils, using high nicotine. When you take a drag from these devices, no matter the size of the device, it should feel like sucking air through a coffee straw. It should be tight! This type of draw makes low vapor and feels like the act of smoking, providing a similar type of hit to the throat that many smokers crave. It’s a simple technique.

Slowly draw vapor into your mouth for a few seconds

Hold the vapor in your closed mouth for a second or two

Open mouth and breathe in the vapor to your lungs (not a “swallow”)

Exhale after vapor is in lungs

Direct lung

The DL hit is mostly ideal for larger vapes with low resistance coils, using low nicotine. Taking a drag on one of these devices will usually feel like sucking air through a milkshake straw. This type of draw makes the most vapor and feels like taking a “bong hit,” though it’s considered a smooth and easy hit since it’s used mostly with low nicotine.

Quickly draw vapor directly to the lungs

Exhale vapor almost immediately

If you can’t figure out the best draw for your vape, or if your device has adjustable airflow, the nicotine content is the best gauge for how to inhale it. As a rule of thumb, high nicotine (12 mg – 60 mg) is better suited for MTL, and low nicotine (0 mg – 6 mg) is best for direct lung inhales. Medium nicotine (6 mg – 12 mg) can be okay for both types of inhale, but typically 6 mg is the cut-off for direct lung inhales.

Cigar puff

Some users opt out of inhaling to the lungs and puff on the vape like a cigar. Although not technically inhaling, the cigar puff can be used with high power (similar to DL) or low power devices (similar to MTL). This kind technique still works to consume nicotine because it gets absorbed in mucus membranes. Some would even argue that inhaling to the lungs is unnecessary.

What can you vape?

Although concentrated cannabis and cannabis interest (weeds) can vaped, they have their own style of vaporizer to vaporize herbs or candle handle thick. Do not buy vape vape juice's designed for use with cannabis products unless sold as a multi-use. One exception to the CBD cannabis products is therefore available in a non-nicotine vape juice.

Other products, solutions, or chemicals must vaped. Anything from your kitchen, such as cooking oil or syrup. Although vape juice tasted like oil, it does not. The basic ingredients vape juice soluble in water, but that does not mean either that you can vape something like soda. Vaping made to vape juice! Even if you've seen someone do something crazy on YouTube, do not try to vaporize the non-vaping products.

You have to start vaping?

The decision to start vaping is a personal choice for adults to make, usually to combat smoking addiction. Vapes no health or smoking cessation products, although they have helped many people become tobacco and smoke. Vaping has its fair share of pros and cons, but the act of vaping is considered a reduction in the impact - especially when the only alternative to smoking.
