New To Vaping?
What is an electronic cigarette?
An electronic cigarette is a nicotine delivery device that provides the user with a ‘dose’ of nicotine to satisfy a craving when needed. It is designed as a life style alternative to using a cigarette.
If you dont want to have nicotine, you can use an electronic cigarette with nicotine free liquid.
How do they work?
There are 3 sections to an electronic cigarette, any model you choose will essentially have these parts.
An E-Liquid chamber, a heating element to turn the E-Liquid into vapour and a battery to provide the power.
What do I need to vape?
First things first.. you’re going to need a starter kit. For first time users looking to cut down on those cigarettes we highly recommend our classic Vapouriz FUSE STARTER KIT. This includes a battery (bottom bit), the charger for the battery, and a clearomizer (top bit). The clearomizer can also be known as a tank or atomizer. As well as your starter kit, you're going to need e-liquid or e-juice which essentially 'fuels' the electronic cigarette.
If you are looking for big clouds, then we recommend our Vapouriz sub-ohm VBOX 40W kit
E-Liquid - The Facts
E-liquid is also known as liquid or juice.
It produces the water vapour.
It comes in a variety of nicotine strengths and flavours and often consists of 4 ingredients
- Nicotine (if you choose 0% liquid there will not be any nicotine)
- VG, Vegetable Glycerine
- PG, Propylene Glycol
The most common base liquid is PG which is to be used in the FUSE. If you are wanting to sub-ohm then you will need to buy Max VG Liquid.
The flavourings in e-liquid are the same as food flavourings, but some have been specially created for vaping.
Try and store your e-liquid out of direct sunlight.
You can even mix two or more flavours together to make some new blends.
What does the term 'vaping' mean?
When most people think of an electronic cigarette, they think it’s ‘like smoking’. In fact, there is no ‘smoke’ involved, merely water vapour.
What strength of classic e-liquid do I need?
The strength of e-liquid needed correlates with the number of tobacco cigarettes smoked per day
If smoking in excess of 20 per day then 1.8 is advised.
If smoking around 10 per day then start at 1.2%
If you are using an e-cig to help you stop smoking then reducing your e-liquid strength to 0.6% can be achieved within 3 - 6 months of vaping if desired.
How long will a 10ml bottle of E-Liquid last me?
Everyone is different! Some people like puff away all day and other people like to stick to their designated ‘vaping’ breaks. As a rough guide, an average 20 a day smoker of traditional cigarettes gets through a 10ml bottle every 5-7 days or so.
What about the Health Issues?
Electronic cigarettes do NOT contain tobacco so they do not burn in the same way as traditional cigarettes. They do not produce ash, carbon monoxide, benzene or any of the other dangerous by products which result from burning tobacco.
Scientific research carried out so far has concluded that electronic cigarettes are substantially less harmful than traditional cigarettes.
Public Health England (PHE) recently published a report saying that E-Cigarettes are 95% safer than traditional cigarettes.
Electronic cigarettes are not for the use of those under 18 and they should always be kept away from children. They are not recommended for women who are pregnant or breast feeding.
Can I vape in places where smoking is banned?
The UK smoking ban introduced in the Health Act 2006, Chapter 28 Part 1, Chapter 1, Section 1, Para 2 states:
‘smoking’ refers to smoking tobacco or anything which contains tobacco, or smoking any other substance; and smoking includes being in possession of lit tobacco or anything lit which contains tobacco, or being in possession of any other lit substance in a form in which it could be smoked.
Electronic cigarettes are exempt from this Health Act as no tobacco is lit or used.
However, with this being said, we do advise you to check with the individual establishment
