Which vape should I buy?

When it comes to vaping, there are a number of factors that will help determine which device is the right one for you. Your preference could be affected by your vaping habits, how much you’re willing to spend or your preferred nicotine strength, so it’s useful to know what you’re buying to make the experience work for you.

we have several vaping kits available depending on your experience. Before we delve in, let’s take a closer look at some of the key areas that can affect your decision.

Deciding which vape is best for you:

When you’re reading up on devices, without a bit of pre-planning it can be difficult to know if a device ticks all your boxes – especially if you’re new to vaping. So before you head online or to your local store, ask yourself these questions:

1.What’s your budget?

If you’re taking up vaping because it’s a cheaper alternative to smoking – and even if you’re not – set yourself a mental budget. After all, you don’t want vaping to leave a gaping hole in your back pocket.

2.How much did/do you smoke?

The number of standard cigarettes you did/do smoke is likely to play a role in determining what strength of nicotine you’ll be looking for in your vaping device. As a rule of thumb, the more cigarettes you smoke, the higher the nicotine level you’ll probably want.

There are various strengths ranging from 0% (nicotine-free) to 0.8% (low) and 1.6% (medium).Picking the right level is important, so if you’re not sure what yours should be, ask one of experts before making your decision.

3. Why are you vaping?

There are several reasons why people vape, with some of the most popular being:

  • Looking for an alternative to smoking
  • Because it bothers fewer people
  • To save money
  • Because it’s less harmful than smoking
  • It offers a range of flavours
  • For enjoyment

The answer to this may give you an indication of the level of nicotine that might be suitable for you. If you’re vaping purely for enjoyment, some of the lower strength nicotine e-liquids are likely to be appropriate for you.

Alternatively, if you’re looking for something with the look and feel of a traditional cigarette, you might want to consider some of the higher strength nicotine e-liquids, or even something like a cigalike.

4. What size device do you want?

Size matters. If you want your vaping to be discreet, you’ll want a device that’s nice and compact. But if you don’t mind your device being on show, a bigger device might be the one for you.

Either way, be sure to keep an eye out for the device’s dimensions when shopping around.

What is the best e-cigarette to buy?

Despite the reams and reams of ‘Best e-cigarettes of the year’ lists out there, there isn’t really such thing as a blanket best, because what works for one person might not necessarily work for you.

When you think about it, that’s the same for pretty much everything in life. Ibiza might be voted the best holiday destination for 2019, but if it’s not up your street, you’re not going to enjoy it. Well, the same applies to e-cigs.

Understanding which nicotine level is best for you

You’ll be able to choose from three levels:

0% - nicotine-free

8% - low

6% - medium

To make sure you get the right strength nicotine e-liquid, we’d always recommend seeking specialist advice before committing to your purchase.
