Looking to become a vaper? If you usually smoke traditional cigarettes, then switching to an e-cigarette might feel a bit overwhelming but it’s actually pretty easy once you get down to it. In this blog we hope to offer you some advice if you’re looking to buy your first e-cigarette. If you have been vaping for a while, then you might find some of our other blogs more useful. Just remember, you must be over 18 to use an e-cigarette.

Starter Kit

To begin with, you’ll need to purchase a starter kit. It’s really important that you buy one from a reputable e-cigarette company and not someone you meet in the pub or at a car boot sale for instance. You need to be able to trust that what you’ve bought from them is in good working order and meets safety standards, otherwise you could be putting yourself and your family at risk. We are one of the leading e-cigarette companies and we use highly automated machinery to ensure the highest level of quality is achieved and maintained at all times when producing our products. We make sure that all of our products adhere to the strictest safety standards. Our bestseller is our  Tru Hybrid which is £20. It comes with a USB charger included and is very easy to use. You can choose from a range of colours: Stainless Steel, Pink, Blue, Black, White, Purple and Red. Please note, we offer free delivery for all orders over £15.

Batteries

Before you use your e-cigarette for the first time make sure you charge your battery first as it’ll take at least two hours to get a good amount of vapour to begin with. It might be a good idea to pay £10 more to get an extra battery so that you always have one fully charged to use. Otherwise, if you forget to charge your battery one day you’ll have to wait a while for it to charge before you can vape, and we know from experience how long that feels when you’re trying to avoid smoking. If you’re just going to be using the e-cigarette occasionally then you probably won’t need an extra battery. Just remember: never leave your battery charging unattended.

E-liquids

We offer 40 different flavours of e-liquids so there is plenty to choose from. Maybe opt for one of our  most popular flavours like Virginia Tobacco, Menthol or Tobacco? Don’t be tempted to buy loads and loads of different flavours to begin with, just stick to two or three. You can always buy more in a few weeks once you know that you’re going to be a vaper long term. E-liquids come in different strengths so make sure to spend the time working out which strength is right for you. We’ve got some advice for this in our  e-liquid strength blog.

Extras

Once you’ve had your e-cigarette for a few weeks you might decide to get an extra charger you can leave at work or so you can have one upstairs and one downstairs in your home. Our UK mains chargers are £6 each. We also sell a carry case to store your e-cigarette in when you’re out and about. You can buy one for £7.95. It’s worth remembering that you’ll need to keep your e-cigarette clean as you don’t throw it away after each use like a traditional cigarette. When you receive your starter kit you’ll also be sent an instruction leaflet which will explain how you go about cleaning your e-cigarette. It’s something you’ll need to do at regular intervals so why not set up a reminder in your phone? You’ll also have to replace your e-cigarette’s coil head every 4-6 weeks but this is really easy to do. A pack of 5 replacement coil heads cost £10.
