For many smokers, the world of electronic cigarettes is intimidating and confusing, to say the least. Smoking only requires 2 things, a cigarette and a lighter… Now take someone who has smoked for 30 years and show them a complex electronic cigarette kit and they are likely to favor their coffin nails over such a complicated device more often than not.
This is a huge problem for smokers who are looking for a better way to get the nicotine they are addicted to. If they are to switch to e-cigarettes, they will need to either learn how to operate such complicated devices, or find something simpler altogether. Here is the second problem, a simpler e-cig is likely to be less satisfying than a more complicated counterpart.
So how do smokers find the right e-cigarette kits for their needs?
First off, there are many different types of electronic cigarettes on the market. The types of e-cigs can be categorized as follows:
Disposables- throwaways that are one time use
Vape pens- bigger than cig-a-likes with more power and a refillable e-liquid tank
Vape mods- bigger and more powerful than vape pens.
Box Mods- shaped like a rectangle and very powerful
The best way to find the right e-cigarette is to buy a popular starter kit.
Start with a disposable or a cig-a-like kit to see what you like and don’t like. Heavy smokers are probably not going to be satisfied by a disposable, but it helps to start there so you can see what you need next. After trying a few disposables, get yourself a cig-a-like starter kit. The best way to find a starter kit is to read e-cig reviews online and see what is popular with other smokers.
A good starter kit will give you a battery, a e-liquid tank, a charger, and maybe a bottle of e-liquid. If you find a kit without e-liquid, don’t forget to grab a bottle before checking out. This is everything you need to start vaping and enjoy the benefits of e-cigs.
The flavor of e-liquid is a huge factor when using e-cigarettes. If you like the flavor, it will increase your satisfaction and you are more likely to use you new e-cig than to smoke. FYI, once you find a flavor that you enjoy, you can use it in any e-cig type.
Once you get used to using a cig-a-like, you can if needed, upgrade to a vape pen starter kit. Vape pens are bigger and more powerful than a cig-a-like. This is a good baseline for satisfaction. If you can use a vape pen (sometimes called an eGo) you will find that smoking is less and less attractive and you will desire your e-liquid flavor more than that nasty cigarette taste. A vape pen starter kit is similar to a cig-a-like kit, it has a battery, tank, and charger. They are just a bit bigger.
The majority of e-cig users are going to be happy with a vape pen and the power they have. But if you still find yourself going outside for a smoke, try one of the more powerful kits such as a vape mod or box mod kit. Transitioning to a mod type kit is easier if you have used a vape pen first. You just need to fill the tank and charge the battery. The advantages to a mod is that they have much more power, and thus more vapor than the smaller e-cigs mentioned. Heavy smokers enjoy the bigger clouds of vapor and the throat-hit they produce.
If you are looking for the best way to switch to e-cigs, you will need to find the qualities that satisfy you the best and adjust accordingly. Start cheap and work you way up as needed.
