If you are looking to get into vaping, it helps to understand your needs. Our vape shop in Upper Darby can answer any question that you may think of. Provided below is a breakdown of the essentials for everyone, plus some notable gear for different lifestyles.
- Vape juice. You have thousands of flavor choices so why limit yourself to just one? You can even get tobacco-flavored kinds if you ate trying to kick a smoking habit.
- Atomizer aka “coils.” This is what turns your juice into vapor. While most starters come with a few coils with varying ohms, atomizers soil over time and need replacing. While you can use a soiled coil, it will negatively affect the flavor of your vapor. Consider keeping a few coils of different resistances in case you decide to change your vaping style through the day.
- Batteries. If you bought a box starter, you likely had enough batteries. Anyone who buys a mod will need a suitable battery for its power. It is a good idea to keep at least one spare battery on hand. Know that damaged batteries are hazardous, and it is best to switch to a fresh battery instead of using a damaged one. Some hobbyists prefer using external chargers.
- Optional: Cases/Skins. A lot of vapers will use these to further customize their unit. Device cases fit around the device, adding padding and protection if you accidentally drop your e-cig. Full kit cases will store all of your vaping equipment in one safe spot.
Gear for Discrete Vaping
These items are perfect for drawing little attention to your vaping.
- Pod system. These generate little vapor but often feature salts containing high amounts of nicotine. This means a big hit without a big cloud.
- Replacement pods. Most popular pod devices take pre-filled cartridges. Since frequent use quickly drains the pod, it helps to have extras.
- Charger Cables/Adapters. Most pods have built-in batteries and require a charger. You will also want adapters in case you need to recharge while away from a traditional outlet.
Gear for Big Clouds
This is the gear you should purchase if you want to make big vape clouds.
- Sub-ohm device. These take multiple batteries to reach high wattage levels, some exceeding 220w. Big clouds need high wattage, but high wattage also soils a coil quicker. Most coil manufacturers explain what wattage levels work best for their equipment.
- Low-Resistance coils. These offer less than one ohm of resistance.
- Sub-ohm tank. These accept atomizers under one ohm and can store more juice.
- Spare tanks. These are useful if your tank cracks after an impact.
