You may have considered switching to vaping after realizing how much safer it is than smoking. You could also have started vaping for fun or to keep up with your peers, and you have been using your friend’s kit. Before you buy your first vape kit, you need to be aware of several things to make an informed decision.
Here are some things you need to know before you buy your first vape:
Desktop vs. portable vaporizers
Vaporizers come in two types – desktop and portable. Each of these types has other variations that fall under them. Portable vapes are for those who would like to vape as they move around. Conversely, desktop vapes are for vapers who intend to vape in the house. They are larger, more powerful, and tend to be more versatile in functionality. They are also more costly. You should buy a portable vape to start and then buy a desktop one as you get more experienced.
Regulated or unregulated mods
Regulated mods let you control the vape better thanks to their circuit boards, and they avoid firing up the device if there is a malfunction. Unregulated mods, on the other hand, have no circuits and allow you to be in control. If you choose to get an unregulated mod, pick one with more batteries so that you can control the production of the device.
Lone or social vaper
Do you intend to vape alone or with your friends? These so-called session vapes are the best if you vape during outings with friends. They heat materials for a given duration when you switch them on, are designed for groups, and can be passed around. On the other hand, on-demand vapes are the most suitable if you intend to take small hits from time to time (micro-dosing). They are a better option for lone vapers. As you consider the most suitable vape, you can check out an e-cigarette store in your locality and seek the store attendant’s guidance to choose the vape that best fits your needs, style, and budget.
You may also be a lone vaper, but you vape frequently, so you need to ask yourself how frequently you will be vaping. Vapes with standard batteries can give you 200 to 250 puffs, while those whose batteries have higher capacities can allow you between 300 and 400 puffs. You should also be wary of sellers who quote higher capacities.
Concentrates vs. flowers
What do you want to vape? Is it concentrates such as waxes, essential oil, and others or flowers like marijuana and dry herbs? There are a ton of options, and each vape is made to use with a certain type of product. You should not make the mistake of buying a vape that goes with what you do not vape. You may also opt for one that can handle both. For example, most portable ones are good with both, while desktops tend to go better with oils most of the time.
While different vapes serve the same purpose, they can vary a great deal in price. Some simple and cheap portable vapes can cost around $20, while another more complex and luxurious one can set you back hundreds of dollars. The most critical thing is to figure out your budget, and you will easily identify a perfect one for your needs within that budget.
As you weigh all the above factors, it is also good to check out what other vapers are saying about different vapes. Which another way can show you how good a vape is better than hearing from the users? Make a point of reading several vape reviews before buying your first one. You should also learn some health facts about vaping too.
