More information on vape kits.
WHAT IS A VAPE KIT?
A vape kit, or e-cigarette, is an electronic device which uses several components to vapourise e liquid into an inhalable form. It is an alternative way to obtain the nicotine your body is craving from smoking cigarettes.
There are many different brands and styles on the market and they are one of the most popular methods for people to make the switch to smoking.
WHY CHOOSE AN E CIGARETTE?
E cigarettes are the best way to break free from the chains of smoking. They take care of all your smoking triggers and with such a selection of vape kits and e-liquid, you will always find a vaping set up to suit you.
They are better for your health, not to mention your wallet.
Health benefits of vape pens
While we could talk for pages about the health benefits of vaping, nothing holds more weight than the opinion of prominent government and health bodies.
Saving money with ecigs
Making the switch from smoking to vaping will not only have an impact on your health and general wellbeing. The potential impact on your monthly budget is astounding. By making the switch to smoking you can save over £3200 a year.
The cost of cigarettes changes each year. So, for this we will look at a person who smokes 20 a day and chooses a popular brand of cigarettes.
A pack of 20 cigarettes cost - £10.60
£10.60 x 365 = £3869
That is nearly £4000 a year on smoking. Over a lifetime that could be approaching £100,000,00 on cigarettes alone.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF VAPE KITS?
The fantastic thing about vaping is the sheer number of vape kits available on the market. There is so much choice that you will find an ecig that works for you.
There are a number of vape styles available so get ready to find your perfect match. Here are the different types of vape kit you’re likely to come across:
A vape starter kit is 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.
A disposbale vape is the easiest way to start vaping. There is no set up, no maintenance and not even a button to press. A disposable vape pen comes pre-filled with e-liquid, usually a nic salt, and has a charged battery built in. You just remove the disposable from the packaging and inhale to vape.
Pod vape kits are made up of two components; a battery and a pod or cartridge that clicks into the ecig battery. Usually pre-filled with e-liquid, they tend to have a higher nicotine strength and a few flavours to choose from. They are popular with new vapers and smokers who are looking to start their vaping journey because vape pods are simple to use and even easier to maintain.
Pen style e cigarettes are one of the most common styles on the market. They’re named for their shape: long and cylindrical. They are made up of several components and offer you freedom with the type of e-liquid you use.
Vape mods are perhaps the most advanced of all e cigarettes. Like a traditional e cig, they come with a battery, a tank and an atomizer head. The only difference? They allow you to control your vaping experience and achieve higher vapour production, often with customisable settings.
WHAT IS INSIDE AN E CIGARETTE?
The fluid that is used in e cigarettes is called e-liquid. This is made up of a few core ingredients and can contain nicotine or be nicotine free.
The main ingredients in e-liquid are flavouring, diluent and nicotine. There are usually two diluents; Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerine (VG), their job is to dilute the mixture of nicotine and flavours to the desired strength and secondly, it provides the constituent that produces the vapour.
Flavourings are there to do exactly as the name states. As nicotine has no discernible taste, without any added flavourings your e-liquid wouldn’t taste of anything. There are an infinite number of flavours that can be created, so we won’t list them all here, but at Totally Wicked we have over 150 to choose from.
Not contained in e-liquid are the 4000+ harmful chemicals that are in traditional tobacco cigarettes, there is no tar, no carcinogens, and no general ‘nasties’.
HOW DO E CIGARETTES WORK?
The way vape kits work is really simple. You fill your vape tank with e-liquid, you press the button on your ecig battery. This heats up the atomizer head coil, which vapourises your e-liquid into an inhalable form. You then inhale this vapour.
Yes, there are a few more steps than smoking, but it really is just as simple. One of the many reasons why stopping smoking with an e cigarette is so successful is because they have such a low impact on your usual routine.
UNDERSTANDING E CIGARETTES - THE FINER DETAIL
An e cigarette is a battery powered device with a refillable tank that contains e-liquid. Inside this tank is an atomizer head that contains a coil and wicking material. E cigarettes use electricity to heat the coil which is wrapped around, or through the wicking material. As this heats up the e-liquid soaked wicking material, the e-liquid is vapourised to an inhalable form. This vapour, which resembles smoke, is then inhaled and exhaled by the vaper.
E cigarettes are different to other forms of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). They not only help to curb your nicotine craving, they also help to curb your cravings by taking care of many smoking ‘triggers’ that traditional NRT’s can’t.
