Whether you are new to vaping, or an experienced vaper looking for an upgrade, there are lots of things to consider when buying a new vape. There are many different types of vape kit on the market, which will each work for different types of vapers.

To help explain further, Darren Ware, Managing Director of Snazzy Vapes shares his expertise on understanding how you vape and what you want will help you to choose the perfect vape kit to get the most out of your vaping experience.

Traditional e-cigarettes

The traditional e-cigarette is long and thin, and even the colours usually represent a cigarette. These are often known at cigalike e-cigarettes, and they are often the cheapest and easiest to use. They tend to be favoured by beginners and consist of a small rechargeable battery and a refillable cartridge that contains e-liquid. They are very discreet, and they only emit a small amount of vapour, so they are excellent for making that initial switch from smoking.

The e-liquid cartridges tend to come pre-filled, however, the flavours can be somewhat limited. The nicotine strengths involved range from 0mg to 20mg. A cigalike kit is quite simple and usually only costs a few pounds. They will include the battery, charger and at least one liquid. To get started, just charge up the battery, fit the refill and you are ready to go.

Classic vape kits

A classic vape kit is another option that is popular with beginners as they are still relatively straightforward to use. They are refillable and have a specialised tank for e-liquid and a battery, which tends to be larger than those found in cigalikes, ensuring that they last much longer. These types of devices are known as mouth-to-lung vapes because of the way that the vapour is inhaled.

The refillable tank provides a lot more options for the e-liquid, and so there are a wide range of flavours available, without giving off huge clouds of vapour. The e-liquids used in this type of vape will need at least 50% PG. Whilst cigalike devices activate every time the vaper inhales, these classic vapes are activated by a button.

Classic vape kits usually include one or two coils, which can last for seven to 14 days, and a charger along with the vape itself. This leaves you free to choose the e-liquids that you prefer in any flavour and strength that you can think of.

Sub Ohm Kits

A sub ohm vape tend to be preferred by more experienced vapers, but there are an increasing number of beginner’s ones creeping into the market too. The vape is made up of a battery unit and a tank, but these kits usually have adjustable settings. These are direct-to-lung vapes, and the coils have a resistance of below 1ohm, which creates more vapours than the other options, which can seem more satisfying.

A sub ohm kit is perfect if you want to customize your vaping experience, and not only allow you to use a wide variety of e-liquids, but also gives you longer-lasting batteries. Your kit will include a couple of coils and a charging cable, leaving you to choose the e-liquids that you want. The sub ohm coils generally only work with e-liquids of at least 50% VG.

Your vape is very much a personal choice, but keeping it simple at first is always a good idea until you get used to vaping and can determine what you would like it to do. These vapes give you some terrific options, and if you were a smoker in the past, you might already know how you are likely to use your vape. The vaping world is huge and with so many options available, there really is something for everyone.
