When buying your first e-cig, there are lots of things you should consider. Like whether or not you should purchase it in store or maybe online and why. Or all the items or products you’ll need to get you going when looking into becoming a vaper.
When you purchase at your local vape shop:
- In person conversations about products and safety of different products
- Hands on experience
- You get to taste the eLiquid before you buy it
- If you need to return a product, you can take it right back to the store instead of having to mail it back
When you purchase online:
- Products delivered right at your door
- Better chance for getting lower prices
- Online stores are open 24 hours
- More selection for various products
Depending on what you’re interested in getting, the necessities can differ. If you’re buying a regulated mod, a lot of them have internal batteries. These that are internal batteries, usually come with a charger. If the batteries are external, you’ll need to purchase batteries as well as a charger for those batteries. Another item you’ll need is, juice! Without juice, you can’t vape! If you’re buying a tank, you’ll need to purchase extra coils. If you’re buying a rebuildable atomizer, you might want to learn how to build your own coils. You can learn by different ways; in a vape shop, YouTube videos, and I’ve also written a blog on basic building steps! So to make it short, you’ll need a mod, an atomizer, batteries (if not internal), charger, and eLiquid.
Let’s face it… nothing beats personalized service. Especially if it is going to be your very first vape gear purchase. Another huge pro when it comes to just going to your local vape shop is, you get the chance to test your juice before you buy it! I mean, who want to buy juice that you’ve never tried. Probably not many. Now, if you already know exactly what you’re looking for, online could be the best route. This is because you can shop around hassle free to search for the best price. It all just dwindles down to what you’re looking for (or if you even know what you’re looking for), convenience, and price!
