If you’ve been smoking for years, chances are the world of vaping will feel like a whole new beast to learn and understand. But don’t worry. We are here to help you avoid making the mistakes that most new vapers make so you can keep it simple, and stay off the ciggies for good.
Buying a cheap device
There are devices on the market that are cheaper than others, and if that is all you want to get you going then that is fine. However, if your device is poor quality then you might not get the best vape experience possible, putting you off for the future. There are so many well known and loved brands of device out there, it might be a good idea to go in store and try out a few different devices before you make your purchase.
Selecting the wrong nicotine strength
As a new vaper you need to make sure that you select a vape juice with the correct nicotine strength. Choose something too low and you’ll feel disappointed and unfulfilled, or choose something too high and you might end up with a headache.
As general guidelines, follow this formula:
- Heavy smokers (20 + a day) require 18mg
- Medium smokers (10-20 a day) require 12mg
- Light smokers (10 a day) require 3mg
However, it is always best to go in store to try the different strengths and see which suits you best.
Getting dry mouth
Vaping can make your mouth pretty dry. Be aware of this and make sure that you are staying fully hydrated throughout the day.
Choosing the wrong liquid
It might seem like a minefield with all the flavours, mixtures and strengths that you can get, but you need to make sure that you select the right vape juice for your tank. If you feel like you’re not getting enough vape cloud, or that your throat feels quite sore, then up the VG ratio. Still not sure what is right for you?

- Not soaking coils
When you first get your vape, or change your coil, you need to ensure that you let the juice soak into it before you take a puff. Otherwise you’ll get a dry hit which will taste nasty and will ruin your coil.
- Forgetting to carry your charger
Running out of battery on your vape is very annoying. You see those flashing lights and your heart sinks. Always carry your charger with you so that you don’t run out of charge and feel tempted to buy a packet of ciggs.
