Your Most Common Vaping Questions Answered
If you are considering giving vaping a try or have just started out in the world of vaping, then you likely have plenty of questions. Here are some of the ones we hear the most at ePuffer – and their answers.
How do e-cigs work?
Your e-cigarette has three main components:
- Tank or clearomizer (the part that holds your e-juice; typically a glass or plastic vial containing a wick and a coil that heats up)
- E-liquid of your choice
When you activate your e-cigarette, the battery will send a current through the coil (located inside the tank), which is wrapped around a piece of cotton or a wick that is saturated with vape juice. This heating action causes the juice to evaporate and become vapor, which you inhale and exhale – much like smoking a traditional cigarette, but with some key differences, such as a more pleasant scent and the ability to get your nicotine fix almost anytime and anyplace you like.
Is it legal to vape indoors?
Because vaping does not involve any combustion, e-cigs are not affected by the laws that ban smoking in public places in the UK. However, building owners can still decide whether to allow vaping or not on their property. That means that you will find some places where you can vape and some where you can’t, so it’s always a good idea to check the policy of the establishment you’re visiting. Same goes for flying – be sure to check with the airline before attempting to bring your vaping supplies with you on the plane.
How do I choose the right vaping product for me?
It’s easy to buy a vape online – it’s not always quite so easy to decide which one to buy. If you’re just starting out, you will probably want to avoid complicated vape mods, which can be a little overwhelming for a new user. It’s a good idea to try out a starter kit such as the ePuffer SNAPS Rev4 E-Cigarette Starter Kit. This kit contains two batteries, three sample e-juice cartridges, a personal charging case (great for when you’re on the go), a universal AC/USB adapter, a fast charger, and an easy-t0-understand user guide – everything you need to get started enjoying your vape. For something even simpler, go for a disposable device.
Can I save money by switching from smoking to vaping?
People switch from smoking to vaping for an assortment of reasons: they don’t like the smell that smoking leaves on their clothes, they want the freedom of being able to vape more places than they can smoke, or they are concerned about the health risks of smoking and believe vaping to be a better alternative, to name a few. Another reason that some people make the switch is in the hopes of saving money – which you absolutely can do. To be sure, the amount saved varies widely from person to person depending on what device you use, how much e-juice you consume, and how much the cigarettes that you typically smoke cost. While vaping generally requires a bit of an upfront investment, most vapers find that they spend significantly less on vaping over time than they did on tobacco products.
