New to Vaping? Starter Guide

New to Vaping? A Ultimate Guide For First Time Vapers

So you're ready to take the plunge and purchase your first vape kit but don't know where to start. We understand; walking into your local vape store without prior knowledge or experience can be a potentially daunting prospect.

The sheer range of vape kits available are dizzying in their diversity, and with so many to choose from - where should you start with vaping? Well, you can take a deep breath and relax because the industry experts are here to help.

3 Reasons Why You Should Start Vaping

Safer Than Smoking

Whilst there are still a lot of myths and rumours floating about regarding vaping, it's an indisputable fact that vaping is both a safer and healthier alternative to smoking cigarettes. The British Royal College of Physicians And Public Health England (PHE) have gone so far as to say that vaping is "at least 95% less harmful than smoking".

Vaping instead of smoking can reduce your risk of Cancer, Heart Disease, Lung Damage and an assortment of other medical problems caused by the tar and carcinogenic chemicals found in cigarettes.

Guaranteed To Save Money

With the Cost of Living Crisis on our hands, as well as the exponential increase in the price of cigarettes, there has never been a better time to start vaping. There's a wide array of vape starter kits available for almost any budget, and they're immensely cheaper to maintain and use than if you were to continue smoking. So why not make the switch and save some money whilst you're at it?

You're In Control

Vaping gives you much more control over your nicotine intake. You can choose how much nicotine you want, as there's a wide variety of e-liquids available in many different strengths; you could even decide not to use nicotine at all.

You can find a more in-depth guide to choosing the right e-liquid.

Vaping: Where Should I Start?

You must find the right vape kit for you, especially if you're switching from smoking to vaping, but with so many vapes out there, how do you decide what's right for you?

There are several factors that you should take into consideration when selecting a starter kit:

  • Simplicity
  • Adjustability
  • Longevity

Innokin T18E II Vape Pen

Quick View: Adjustable, Durable, Reliable

The Innokin T18 II worms, similar to the aforementioned T20 S, have a few added bonuses!

  • Adjustable Airflow - this device has an adjustable airflow which gives you more control over your vaping experience as you can decide your preferred air intake!
  • Adjustable Power - although this device has just one button, much like the other vape kits that are best for beginners, this one button can control how powerful your device is! Whilst the T18E II is switched off, if you hold down the power button, you'll see one of the 3 lights (also used as battery indicators) light up. If you continue to hold it down, the next light in the series will light up - this signals which power setting you're using (low, medium, and high). This simple yet effective system is a fantastic feature for those stressful situations where your usual nicotine hit isn't satisfying your cravings.
  • Detachable Tank - much like the T20 S, the T18 II has a removable tank with replaceable coils. They're super easy to replace and deliver a sensation similar to smoking, providing a fantastic all-around product.
