How To Choose An E-Cigarette Starter Kit
Quitting smoking? Here’s how to choose the best starter kit to help you along the way.
It’s no secret that quitting smoking is one of the most difficult things to do, but there are many options available that can help.
Just one of these options is an e-cigarette.
In recent years, more and more smokers have turned to an e-cig in their attempts to quit, and they’ve proven to be one of, if not the most effective stop smoking aid, time and time again.
There are currently 3.6 million e-cigarette users in the UK according to Action on Smoking and Health, 36% of which stated their main reason for vaping is to help them ditch cigarettes.
Admittedly, the world of vaping can be a little intimidating when you’re new, and it can be challenging to find the perfect products, which is why we’ve put together this short guide on how to choose an e-cigarette starter kit.
Think about how often you smoke and the vape experience you want
If you’re a heavy smoker wanting to cut out tobacco, one of the most important things for you to keep in mind when shopping for your first starter kit is how often you smoke. This will help to determine the nicotine content of your e-liquid and whether or not you want to achieve a ‘throat hit’.
For first time users that are heavy smokers, we recommend a low-powered device with a high nicotine liquid – to help satisfy your cravings, whilst you find your feet with your new e-cig.
If you like the idea of inhaling without a throat hit, a smoother experience or more flavour, consider a low nicotine liquid with a higher VG (Vegetable Glycerine) to PG (Propylene Glycol) ratio.
This option also allows for more frequent use, as the nicotine levels are low, but you’ll usually need a higher-powered device.
Consider how much you want to spend
Conveniently, there are starter kits available to suit all kinds of budgets.
No matter if you’re looking to invest in low-budget hardware to familiarise yourself with the world of vaping and e-cigarettes, or you’re comfortable going for a more expensive, higher-powered device, you’re bound to find something to meet your specific demands.
Look at different brands and device types
For many newbie vapers, this is the most difficult part when it comes to shopping for a starter kit, and we get it. With so many brands and device types available, it can feel a little overwhelming.
You might ask yourself the difference between kits and wonder what makes one better than another.
The truth is, there’s no ‘best’, and they’re all brilliant in their own way – but you should look into their features and properties, keeping in mind what you want from your vape experience, and which of these will help you to achieve this.
