The choice of device: how to choose your electronic cigarette?
Choosing the right gear is important when starting out with vaping. There are different formats, the most common are:
Disposable Vape: Ready to vape device with Salt Nic. Give you a good throat hit like a cigarette in combination with Salt Nic. You don’t feel cravings for a cigarette when you use a disposable vape. Highly recommended for people who just stop smoking. If you were smoking light cigarettes 10mg Nic Salt will do it, for heavy smoker choose 20mg Nic Salt.
Pods: These e-cigarettes are particularly suitable for first-time users (beginners to vaping) as they are extremely easy to use. No technical knowledge is required. The sealed format of the refills (the pods) means that there is no need to handle e-liquids. After all, there is no need to change the heating coil, just clip the pod onto the battery.
Vape-Kits: This format is most commonly used by first time users or already initiated vapers and there are many simple models available for all. This format has greater autonomy and it is possible to adapt several types of clearomizers to it (different shapes, capacities). However, this also introduces more complexity in terms of maintenance and settings.
The most important thing is that you find the right format for YOUR needs, so it is necessary to seek professional advice.
Above all, do not hesitate to try the different options that are available to you so that you can form your own opinion. You should not be afraid of handling the device or the liquids.
An e-liquid consists of propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerine (VG), flavorings and nicotine. PG/VG enables vapor production and aroma formation.
There are different proportions of PG/VG. You find:
A high percentage of PG as found in e-liquids with a ratio of 80/20 or 70/30. This ratio can suit first-time users for example, since it allows to restore the aromas/flavors and produces a low vapor. The Alfaliquid Original collection with Classic, Fresh, Fruity, Gourmet and Balance flavors is available in 76/24.
A balance of PG/VG with a ratio of 50/50 or 60/40 is a good compromise between flavor and vapor.
In the Alfaliquid Original Cocktail e-liquids you will find a ratio of 64/36.
The Dark Story, Siempre and Cool N’Fruit collections are available in 50/50.
However, it is advisable to remain cautious with the PG/VG ratio chosen as this may result in degradation of your heating coil and/or your material. It is therefore necessary to adjust the heating coil but also the power in watts or volts of your personal vaporizer depending on the ratio.
For current smokers who wanna stop smoking a disposable vape will be the best option. Try it out. You will like it and in a few days you will hate the cigarette taste and smell.
