Chapter 5

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!

 

 

 

There’s a Fill Line to Your Tank

Getting the perfect vape out of your set-up is easier than you think. One of the simplest and most important aspects of creating the perfect vape is by properly filling your tank. You will see that most tanks have milliliter lines printed on the side of it. This shows you how much e-liquid is in it at any given time.

It’s Important to Not Overfill Your Tank

This means you should not fill it with e-liquid past the highest milliliter marking. Making sure you don’t overfill your tank will ensure that you create perfect vapes and your set-up stays in good working order.

What Happens When You Overfill?

Overfilling can potentially cause damage to your battery through leakage. At the very least, overfilling can prevent your battery from connecting properly with the tank because e-liquid has leaked onto the firing pin of your battery. If there’s e-liquid in the connection, your set-up won’t produce a good vape.

Overfilling can cause leakage out of the top of the tank. E-liquid may seep out of where the mouthpiece connects to the tank and make a big mess. You may also end up getting it in your mouth.

Quick Fix

If you’ve overfilled, you can try to pour a little out of the top onto a paper towel. Just pour out enough to get the e-liquid down to the top millimeter line.

If e-liquid has dripped into the bottom part of your atomizer and is collecting on the firing pin of the battery, it’s critical to clean it out for optimal performance. This is easily solved, simply unscrew the battery from the atomizer and clean the bottom of your atomizer and the top of your battery. Twist the corner of a paper towel or a q-tip into the areas where there is leaked e-liquid and soak up the extra juice.

Making sure to keep your tank filled with the proper level of e-liquid will guarantee you’ll have an awesome vaping experience.
