How to choose the best vape for you
The bug has bitten, and you have decided to jump in and buy a vape. Sounds easy right? Well, it really is, once you’ve made a couple of decisions. We are going to take you through the process, and hopefully clear the air of any confusion for you.
Getting Started to buy your first vape
The first step is to find out what kind of smoker you were, if at all. Many vapers nowadays have never even touched a cigarette, which would influence their choice of vape versus an ex-smoker.
Not only are there different types of vapes. But there are different types of customizations to certain vapes and then there’s the whole world of juice. However, for this article, we won’t be talking much about e-liquid at all.
If you are a cigarette smoker looking to move to vaping, you will probably prefer MTL. This means the physical action of inhaling the vapour is done by your mouth. This is because the vape has been built with a slight resistance to emulate the feeling of pulling on a cigarette. On the opposite end of the spectrum is DL. This has no resistance at all and can be quite unnerving for an ex-smoker. Smokers will actually cough on their first drag of a DL device as it’s almost too much smoke, too easy to draw. DL is also best for lower nicotine levels, as it’s so easy to draw on.
Choosing a vaping device
Here on T-juice, we have a broad range of vapes, but two that spring to mind are the following. First up is the Innokin Endura T18II Vape Starter Kit.
Endura T18II Vape Starter Kit
This is a vape pen, or a smaller, cylindrical device, it’s best suited for MTL users and can take both e-juice and nicotine salts. It has a button-activated draw and allows you to adjust the heat and airflow of the device. This means that the ‘resistance’ of your drag can be preset, as well as the temperature of the vapour you’re inhaling.
Geek Vape Aegis Boost
For a more intermediate level, the Geek Vape Aegis Boost is a great way to go. If you’ve ever seen a box mod, this is a great introduction to the culture or hobby of customizing your vape. This mod allows for either MTL or DL, so is suitable for ex-smokers and non. It also allows for sub-ohm vaping, and is supported by a battery that can go up to 40w so if you are keen on creating extraordinary, dense clouds, look no further. It’s also super lightweight at only 120 grams, and what we really like, is that it’s waterproof, dustproof and shockproof. Available in 19 different colour choices, there’s a look for everyone.
Disposable vapes are also growing in popularity, and have their own unique advantages. They offer unrivalled ease of use, with most of them draw-to-activate, meaning you don’t push any buttons, you just inhale and it auto-starts. They also come prefilled, with anywhere from 1.5 to 2ml of juice, allowing for up to 600 drags which is about as much as you would get from a pack of 20 cigarettes, and without all the health guilt and cigarette stink.

Now that you have chosen your first device, it’s time to start exploring the flavours. Good luck, there are hundreds!"
