Vape Starter Kits
90% of Totally Wicked customers quit smoking, you can be one of them!
Your transition from smoking to vaping should be as simple as possible. With ecig technology ever-changing, it can seem overwhelming when it comes to choosing your first e-cig kit and going 'smoke-free'.
Within our recommended starter kits section, you will find a selection of e-cig kits that are hand-picked for their ease of use, that come with everything you need to get started on your vaping journey including UK produced e-liquid.
We know new vapers have a raft of questions when first making the switch to vaping. We will try and answer some of them here.
What is a vape starter kit?
A vape starter kit is usually the place where smokers begin when they want to make the switch to vaping.
There are many starter kits available as no one ecig is suited to everyone. Typically designed to be easy to use, simple to maintain and comes supplied with everything you need to vape as soon as it arrives.
Smokers tend to lean towards pen style e-cigs when they are first starting out. They are familiar, compact and tend to be a ‘plug and play’ ecig. There are no settings to adjust and are the simplest way to start vaping. It is normally a case of filling it with e-liquid and starting to vape. Vape pen style ecigs are not the only way to get going on your vaping journey. Vape pods and some of the simpler box mods available are also a fantastic way to get off the cigarettes.
Vape starter kits are the perfect way to make the transition from traditional tobacco cigarettes to the electronic kind. They have little impact on your day to day routine, tend to emulate the sensation of smoking very well and also hit all of the known ‘trigger’ points that smokers can experience when they first quit.
What’s included in a vape kit?
Vape kits should come with everything supplied so you can start vaping as soon as you receive it.
In the box there will be associated vape accessories. A USB charging cable, spare atomizer head and instruction manuals. Depending on the type of starter kit there may be more or less coils, o-rings, spare mouthpieces or other vaping accessories, although these aren’t essential.
A good vape kit should also come supplied with your choice of e-liquid, this way as soon as your new ecig arrives, all you need to do is read the instructions, get set up and start vaping.
How much does a beginner vape kit cost?
All of the vape kits designed for starters at Totally Wicked come with everything you need to start vaping, but some do differ in price. It is difficult to put one figure on how much a beginner ecig kit will cost, as it depends on what you want to get out of your ecig and what your budget is.
As an example, the Switz2 ecig kit comes in at £24.99. It is a simple to use, pen style starter vape kit that has been designed to closely emulate the sensation of smoking. There are no settings to adjust, it has push fit atomizers and a battery that should last most people a day before needing to be recharged.
Whereas the arc 5 is priced at £39.99, but here you get an ecig that has a much bigger battery, lasting most people a few days before needing a recharge, adjustable settings to fine tune your vaping experience, a tank with adjustable airflow and a much wider choice of atomizer heads.
What is a good starter vape kit?
A good starter vape kit should have little impact on your day to day routine. It should make the transition from smoking to vaping extremely easy. Your vape kit should take care of most of your smoking ‘triggers’ such as; throat hit, nicotine delivery, flavour, inhaling and exhaling, hand to mouth action and habitual motions.
Even though vaping does have slightly more maintenance than smoking, you shouldn’t have to think too much about your starter vape kit. There shouldn’t be too much worry when it comes to refilling your e-liquid or changing your coil.
It should taste great, deliver the nicotine as you need it and make it so you don’t crave cigarettes. A great vape kit will be the highest quality and designed in a way that a quick read through the instructions is all you need to get started vaping.
This is an ecig that should work for you and with you, that should empower you to transform your life.
How to use an e-cigarette?
One thing that people sometimes forget, is that you have to learn how to vape.
Learning how to use a vape starter kit is relatively easy, ensure you read the instructions and follow them and you are away. But learning to vape, while easy, can take a day or two to master.
Assuming you are a smoker making the switch to vaping, you will be used to smoking and vaping is different. You have to vape like a vaper, not a smoker.
When smoking, the harder you draw on a cigarette, the more smoke and throat hit you get. This is not the case with vaping. An e-cig is an electronic device that vapourises e-liquid as you press the button, this turns it into the cloud of vapour you may have seen.
Knowing this, you need to understand that it takes a second or two for this process to happen. So, the key to vaping is a long, slow steady draw. Not short, sharp puffs. Drawing too hard and sharp on an e-cig will only result in a mouth full of e-liquid, coils that don’t work very well and a frustrating vaping experience.
We have some hints and tips for new vapers here, which goes through all you need when you are getting started.
There is also our simple guide to vaping, which breaks down exactly what to expect when you make the switch to vaping.
Why start to vape?
Not only do Public Health England (PHE) state that vaping is a minimum of 95% safer than smoking, there are many other benefits you will see when making the switch to vaping.
You will smell better. We all know that smoking doesn’t smell particularly pleasant, but vaping doesn’t have a lingering smell that stays in your hair and clothes. Some e-liquids may smell slightly sweet when first exhaled, but this dissipates quickly.
It’s better for your health. As previously mentioned, PHE state that vaping is at least 95% safer than smoking. There are none of the 4000+ chemicals and carcinogens in your e-cig as there are in your cigarette.
You will save money. While health benefits tend to be peoples number one priority, the squeeze on your wallet must also be taken into account. Based on an average 20 a day smoker, you can save up to £3200 a year by making the switch to vaping!
There is no second-hand vaping. We recommend that you always ask before vaping around people, studies have shown that there is no risk to human health from the vapour exhaled.
