5 Steps You Need to Start Your E-Cigarette Journey

Switching to e-cigarettes may be your attempt to finally quit cigarette smoking. Well, we’re here to tell you that you’re on a new and fun journey ahead. 

Before you get started, however, there are a few things you must remember, such as the essentials for taking on the e-cigarette. Read on to discover the five steps you need to start your e-cigarette journey today!

Step 1: Choose Your Starter kit

To begin, you will require a beginning kit. This includes all of the components required for your electronic cigarette or vaping setup. The common set or kit you can choose from are:

  • E-Cigarettes

  • This electronic cigarette makes use of disposable refills. These screws are used until they stop emitting vapours. The empty refill can then be refilled. These tobacco or menthol-flavoured refills are available with or without nicotine up to 20mg.

  • Vape Pods

  • These kits use disposable 'pods’ with the coil and 2ml of e-liquid. These disposable pods come in a range of flavours and nicotine levels. Pod devices are popular because of their ease of use and attractive look. Furthermore, their larger batteries last longer between charges and generate more vapour, which some vapers prefer.

    Pod vapes are popular over refilling devices since they do not require coil replacement or e-liquid refills.

  • Refillable Vape 

  • These devices are equipped with a battery and a tank. The tank can be replaced several times during the course of the device's life. The coils in refillable vaporisers must be replaced every 1-3 weeks.

    Refillable vape kits appeal to vapers who want a variety of flavours and device customization. Changing the battery's power output and using different resistance coils are common practices.

    Step 2: Choose Your Juice

    You will need refills or vaping fluids, depending on your equipment. Although some starter kits provide trial refills, you will need to refresh your favourite flavour and strength.

    Pod devices, like e-cigarettes, use disposable, prefilled flavour pods. E-liquid, sometimes known as 'vape juice,' is used in vape devices.

    Step 3: Be Supplied with Replacement Coils

    Only refillable vaping devices necessitate coil replacement. When your vapour tastes burned or lacks flavour, replace the coil. The majority of starter packages include one or two spare coils, however they only last one to three weeks.

    If you are unsure which coils you need, please refer to your kit's instructions or contact us.

    Step 4: Be Equipped with Chargers

    E-cigarette and vape battery charging is necessary on a regular basis. Make sure you have a backup charger if your e-cigarette runs out of juice.

    Nowadays, most e-cigarette and vape devices are charged by micro USB or USB-C. For the proper charging cord, consult the device's handbook.

    Step 5: Come Prepared with Extra Batteries

    Most vapers keep an additional e-cigarette battery on hand. To replicate a typical cigarette, the batteries must be tiny and have a restricted capacity.

    Other devices may not always have replacement batteries, but pod starter kits are cheap enough that you can always buy one to use while the other charges.

    Some manufacturers may not provide new batteries. If your gadget has a long-lasting battery or can be used while charging, having an extra battery may not be necessary.


    From one habit to another, make sure you start your e-cigarette journey with all the essentials you need. With these five steps, you can easily make it a habit to refill what needs to be refilled and replace what needs to be refilled. This way, you can make your e-cigarette experience smoother and more enjoyable.
