When you’re trying to quit smoking and make the switch to vaping, you’ll come across a ton of terms that may be new to you. A vaping kit is one such term.
Vaping kits provide everything you need to start vaping excluding e-liquid. Choosing the right vape kit is crucial to getting the most out of your new vaporizer.
With a wide variety of kit options for beginners, intermediate and advanced users, it’s worth talking to someone who has been vaping for a while so they can guide you through the process of choosing your first vaporizer.
Vaping kits are available in a wide variety of sizes and styles, ranging from pocket-sized vape pens and pods to larger tanks, mods and even desktop vaporizers.
The starter vaping kit will typically include a user manual, USB cable or charger, as well as any necessary tools such as tongs or tweezers. Some vaping kits may also include an extra battery so you can keep one charged while using the other.
A vape mod is the battery portion of your device. The device is powered on and off via the fire button. It has a rechargeable battery built in, and it allows you to adjust wattage and/or temperature for every hit based on your personal preference.
A tank is what holds e-liquid or e-juice within your vape. The tank holds the juice inside of it, and then is connected to the mod to regulate power from the battery to heat up the coil inside of it. The coil inside heats up when power is applied, which turns your juice into vapor that you inhale.
The charging cable provided with some kits will allow you to charge the battery via USB, but not all mods require this cable because they can be charged like cell phones through an adapter or USB port on your computer. However, many kits come with a cable for convenience in charging.
Some kits are designed to be used with nicotine e-liquids, and others are designed for use with nicotine free e-liquids. If you would like to use nicotine, choose a starter kit that comes with a nicotine shot or separate nicotine shots. Nicotine shots are pre-mixed 10ml bottles of 18mg/ml nicotine strength in a 50% VG base. Simply remove the cap of the nicotine shot, add it to your short fill e-liquid bottle and shake well. The result will be 50ml of 3mg/ml strength e-liquid.
