If you need an introduction to vaping, there’s no better way than with a vape starter kit.
But with so many choices and a language unique to vaping, it can be tough to know which starter kit is right for you.
Here’s some information to help you choose.
Why Use a Vape Starter Kit
Getting a vape starter kit is a low-cost way to try vaping. It’s also convenient and easy to use.
Starter kits are no-fuss products. No previous knowledge or experience with vaping is necessary. You can start enjoying popular vapor flavors right away.
They give you a chance to discover what you like about vaping and which features are important to you. A vape starter kit can help you make a sound decision about most complex and versatile vaping equipment.
The basic components of vape starter kits are a vaporizer, battery, charger, heating coil, and cartridges. All are regulated by the FDA.
The cartridge is the part that holds the vape oil, sometimes called e-liquid. Vape oil is also FDA regulated.
The heating coil raises the temperature of the vape oil. The resultant vapor is inhaled through the mouthpiece of the vaporizer.
The battery powers the heating coil. Of course, the charger is for replenishing the battery’s power.
Types of Starter Kits
There are two broad categories of vape starter kits: disposable and refillable. This refers to the type of cartridge. Each has advantages and disadvantages.
Starter kits with disposable cartridges are commonly the most inexpensive kind of kit. But the cost of buying replacement cartridges can add up, depending on how often you vape. You are also limited to vape oils that will fit your vaporizer.
These kinds of starter kits are easy to use. They are compact, which also makes them convenient. Most have USB chargers to help you charge the vaporizer on the go.
There are no buttons or settings to deal with. Some styles are intended to resemble cigarettes, which makes less noticeable among smokers.
Few starter kits with disposable cartridges kits also have heating coils that can be replaced. This is a disadvantage because over time, heating coils become less effective.
In general, refillable vape starter kits are larger than the disposable kind. But they can still find into most pockets and purses without issue.
A vape starter kit with a refillable cartridge often comes with an initial supply of vape oil. After that, you can use any e-liquid you want.
It takes practice to refill the cartridges quickly but it’s not difficult. Buying your own e-liquid does more than give you more choice of flavor. It also saves money over time.
The battery life of refillable starter vaporizers is often 3-5 times that of a disposable. They are also more durable. This makes sense since disposable kits are meant to be thrown away.
It’s not uncommon for a refillable starter kit to also have replaceable heating coils.
Ideal Starter Kit
The ideal starter kit is the one you most enjoy using.
But it is worth noting that if you start with a popular brand like Innokin or V2, upgrading to more complex vaporizers is easier.
We hope that knowing the basics of vape starter kits helps you make the right choice for you.
