How to choose a vape starter kit?
Finding the right e cig starter kit for you is hard, we get it. Not only are there dozens of different makes and models to choose from but getting your head around the different terms and features can feel like a huge hurdle in itself.
Ultimately, picking your perfect starter kit comes down to your specific needs. Are you looking for a starter kit which can offer the ultimate all singing, all dancing experience? Perhaps you only want a straight-forward, easy to use vape that simply gets the job done. Whatever it is you’re after, there will be an e cigarette starter kit to fit the bill.
Ease of Use
Whilst there are plenty of vapers out there who value customisation and a device that offers all the mod cons, many of those new to vaping prefer a device that is simply easy to use. There are plenty of reliable and effective e cig starter kits out there, and so if you find yourself shying away from complex kits, something like a cig-a-like, vape pen or pod kit could be an ideal option.
If you lead a hectic lifestyle or want a vaping device that is great for on-the-go, battery life will be of great importance to you. The last thing you want is to be caught short without a means of charging your device, particularly if you’re trying to quit smoking. There are a number of vape starter kits which offer long lasting battery life as a key selling point, or you could even opt for a vape device that offers an external battery that can be switched out when on the go.
E liquid options
When it comes to e liquids, the question you want to be asking yourself is should you be opting for pre-filled cartridges or refillable cartridges. If you’re new to vaping, you may be unsure of the difference so let us explain this here.
Ideal for convenience and speed, pre-filled cartridges do what they say on the tin and can simply be removed and discarded once empty and replaced with a full cartridge meaning you never have to fuss around refilling your vape device. Refillable cartridges on the other hand are typically more economical and are much more affordable whilst requiring a small effort on your part to keep e-liquid replenished yourself.
Ultimately it comes down to what you’re looking to get out of your experience, whether that be complete ease of use and convenience or the freedom to explore more with e liquid flavours and quantities.
The chances are that if you’ve spent any amount of time looking around for an e cig starter kit, you’ll already be aware of the sheer variety on offer. Although aimed at beginners, there are plenty of vaping starter kits on the market that offer more than just your straight-forward experience. In fact, with the option to customise your experience becoming more and more important, we have seen a rise in e cig starter kits boasting more customisation options.
This isn’t to say that those looking for a simple device won’t be able to find what they’re after, however if you do hold customisability as high priority, there are plenty of starter kits out there offering just that.
What do starter kits include?
Once you’ve settled on the vaping device you want, the next thing to get your head around is accessories. From batteries and charging devices to atomisers and tanks – there are plenty of aspects that could be off-putting to those new to vaping. The great thing about opting for an e cig starter kit is that you are typically provided with everything you need to get the most out of your device.
Looking for a simple vape pen device? The chances are that your starter kit will come with the device itself, a clearomiser, battery and USB charger. For more intricate vape kits, you will usually get everything from the vape tank and atomiser head to coil, e-liquid and a range of spares included.
Unsure what the different terms mean? With so much to consider we understand the need to do your research first, which is why we have put together a handy beginners guide to vaping and post on how e cigarettes work.
