If you’re planning to make the switch from smoking to vaping, then you need a quick vaping guide for you to kick-start your vaping career. In simple words, the process of vaping is defined as the act of using e-cigarettes to exhale & inhale the vapour the devices produce.
The e-liquid creates the vapour which offers the user a nicotine hit without any tar, smoke, ash or burning smell, which you’d normally get with traditional cigarette smoking.
The Various Parts Of A Vape
An e-cigarette is also known as a vape pen in NZ, and it contains the following set of elements:
- The Battery
The battery is said to be the powerhouse for your vape. It offers the energy required to heat the e-juice and then the vapour will be generated for you to inhale the same. E-cigarettes that are smaller in size such as cigalikes, will have a battery built inside the device. Most e-cigarettes have replaceable batteries.
- The Coil, Atomiser & Wick
The battery provides power to the atomiser, which is responsible for housing the heating coil and wick. You can find the atomiser inside the tank, while some advanced e-cigarettes use standalone atomisers. The wick will carry the e-juice from the tank to the coil to be heated.
- The Clearomiser, Cartomiser & Tank
All of the above-mentioned components form the subsets of e-cigarette tanks. The tank is responsible for holding all the vape juice. The difference is that – cartomisers don’t have transparent panes while clearomisers have transparent panes for you to see how much e-liquid is left for use.
What Do You Mean By Vape Juice?
Vape juice, otherwise known as e-juice or e-liquid, is held inside the e-cigarette tank. The atomiser is responsible for heating the e-liquid. In case you buy a disposable e-cigarette, then it will come pre-filled with vape juice. Otherwise, you have to purchase your vape juice.
The primary ingredients that you can find in vape juice are:
- Vegetable Glycerin (VG)\
- Propylene Glycol (PG)
- Food flavourings
You can find nicotine-free e-liquids as well.
Various Types Of E-Cigarettes
Just like the name suggests, cigalikes look like traditional cigarettes in both shape & size. They’re very portable and quite easy to use as well. Ideal for beginner vapers.
- Vape Pens
Vape pens are the bigger version of cigalikes. Unlike cigalikes, vape pens are reusable and will prove to be cost-effective to use in the long term. They also provide better style, performance & flavour.
- Box Mods
Vape mods generally house larger batteries & coils, which allow them to create larger vapour for longer periods. These are ideal for experienced vapers.
