Let’s start at the very beginning, what is Vaping?
Vaping is a topic that a few years ago if you brought it up in conversation, not many people would have known what you were talking about. Now however it is a subject that can bring people together or cause great debate. But what is vaping? What does it entail? What on earth is cloud chasing?
The world of electronic cigarettes can be an extremely confusing one, with its own language and a community full of acronyms that can seem to make little sense. BDC, BCC, VV, VW... Stop, take a deep breath, it gets easier I promise. Seeing all this for the first time can be scary, and with horror stories perpetuated by the media it’s not surprising some people would rather reach for 20 Lambert. But when you get to the bones of vaping it can be as simple or complicated as you want to make it.
Using a device to vaporize e-liquid and deliver the nicotine and flavour your body is craving, easy right? That’s essentially what vaping is, but the amazing part is there are so many different ways to achieve this. Meaning you can tailor vaping to your own needs and tastes.
There are five main things anyone starting out needs, a battery, a way to charge your battery, an atomizer head, a device to house your e-liquid and the e-liquid itself. Once you have all these things you can get going, but what actually happens when you are set up.
With most standard devices you will have a battery with a button. When you press this button it delivers power through the battery to the atomizer head that is housed within the tank. As you draw on your tank, e-liquid is pulled into the atomizer head and as power is already being delivered to the atomizer head this vaporizes the fluid and allows you to inhale the vapour, delivering the nicotine along with a tasty flavour.
See I told you not to panic. Now you realise how simple vaping can be we can delve into the more advanced side, bring on the acronyms.
