5 Things to Consider Before Buying a Vape
Before you walk into a vape shop and ask for a vape, you're going to want to arm yourself with details about what you're looking for. Let's find out more.
1. Pick Your Type
First things first, what do you want to vape?
Herbs? Oils? Concentrates? Wax?
You know you want to vape but you're probably not aware of all the choices you have. Choosing what you want to vape is a great starting point.
How you answer this question will cut your choices in half. Although some vapes accommodate a variety of substances, you'll likely favor a specific type.
It's best to choose one, for example, ejuice is a great start, and move on from there as you experiment with different e-cigarettes, mods, pens, etc.
2. Prepare for Maintenance
Like anything you use often, moving parts will have to be regularly replaced. A vape is no different.
The coil (the heating element) in your vape will wear down over time. You'll know when it's time to replace it because your vape won't taste as good.
If you're new to vaping, look for an easy-to-use tank and find out where and how you can purchase replacement coils.
3. Portable or Desktop?
If you're looking to vape on the go, you'll want to go with a portable device that you can easily slip in your pocket and pull out when needed.
If you're looking for something more serious and left at home, a desktop vape might be best for you.
Both have their own advantages and disadvantages.
4. Are You a Social Smoker?
If you only smoke when other people are smoking and use it as a social outlet, you may want to pick up a session vape. These are great for passing it around and will only heat up for a certain amount of time.
If you're more likely to smoke on your own or take micro hits, consider on-demand vapes for efficiency purposes.
5. Vape Where It's Legal
Just because vapes don't produce the traditional smoke of cigarettes and cigars doesn't mean you can vape anywhere.
Places like airplanes, restaurants, bars, and workspaces still have rules about where you can and cannot smoke so keep an eye out and know the building's policy.
