Finally decided to ditch the bad habit and switch to e-cigarettes? You’re in luck.
We’ve gathered the best tips and tricks to help you maximize your electronic experience and save you both time and money.
1. Start off with a lower nicotine dose
E-cigarette cartridges often come in different nicotine doses: high, medium, low or none. Before jumping into a high nicotine dose, test the lowest dose first. This will help you find the perfect nicotine level without inducing unnecessary headaches or nausea. It’s easier to increase your dose anyway!
2. Make sure to take long, slow puffs
There’s a proper way to smoke an e-cigarette. A long, slow, steady puff will give you the most vapor volume. Short, hard puffs will tend to flood the atomizer causing reduced vapor production, which can lead to liquid in the mouth. Blech!
3. Buy extra batteries and atomizers
If you’re happy with your e-cigarette, it doesn’t hurt to invest in extra hardware. Chances are they’d most likely need to get replaced in a year or two, so you’ll definitely get good use out of them.
4. Use e-liquids rather than filled cartridges
E-liquid provides you with another way to enjoy your e-cigarette. A 10 mL bottle of e-juice will make about the same amount as 10 packs of cigarettes. Rather than purchasing refill cartridges, it’s easier and more economical to place a few drops of the e-liquid solution into your used, empty cartridge and one drop directly on the atomizer. That simple!
5. Switch atomizers regularly
If you purchased a three-piece e-cig model, this tip definitely applies to you. As your atomizer tends to get clogged easily, it helps to switch them out daily for maximum performance. Also, make sure to clean them frequently!
6. Make sure the atomizer's coils are kept moist.
The atomizer is one of the most important parts of your e-cigarette, and as such, it has to be properly maintained to ensure normal function. Never use the e-cigarette with a dry cartridge as this will only destroy the atomizer. Also, do not take puffs that are too long or too deep as this will overheat the atomizer. If by chance your atomizer gets clogged, you will get reduced amount of vapor coming from the e-cigarette and that’s a telltale sign for you to change your cartridge or simply drop e-liquids to the atomizer!
7. Invest in a USB charger
E-cigarettes are powered by batteries, thus just like your phones, they drain easily with increased usage. To make sure you can “vape” while driving or while working in front of your computer, get a USB charger. It may seem costly but it will prove to be a good investment!
E-cigarettes are definitely no-brainers. But just in case you feel technologically-challenged or clueless, simply follow these tips and you’re sure to have a good head start on maximizing the e-cigarette smoking experience!
Congratulations once again on choosing a healthier smoking alternative. Happy vaping!
