If you’re still smoking cigarettes, then slap yourself in the face right now. It makes me sad to see clusters of smokers outside my office. Yes, nicotine is a drug and a hard addiction to quit, but smokeless and vaporizer advancements that have taken place the last few years make a ton of sense for your health. Even the American Heart Association says that vaping is safer than smoking. Here are a few important things that both newbies and vaping veterans need to consider before buying a vape or vaporizer.
1. Why Do You Want One?
Your reason for getting started has everything to do with what kind of vaporizer you will get. Are you just trying to quit smoking normal cigarettes? Then an ecig is what you’re after: a quick easy puff and a hit of nicotine. If hanging out with your friends and vaping socially surrounded by a thick, mysterious cloud of vapor for hours is your thing, then an e-hookah is what you’ll want.
2. What’s Your Style?
One of the most enjoyable aspects of vaping is choosing from the infinite number of designs, colors, and styles. Also, do you want to vape on the go with a portable option, or in the comfort of your home with a desktop version? Buying a vaporizer can be a fashion statement that either accessorizes your look or your home decor.
3. What Are You Vaping?
Flavor! Flavors! Unlike with cigarettes, where flavors were just gross, vaping has opened up a whole new world of taste. There are simple classics like Menthol, to crazy flavors like Goblin Goo. Which do you want?
4. How Advanced Are You?
If you’re fairly new to vaping, you might want to try a starter kit. They will usually come with everything you’ll need. The Elite 1.0 Vaporizer Starter Kit is one of the better options.
Of course, if you’re more of an advanced user, there are plenty of models out there that allow you to make modifications to them. There are disposable vaporizers on the market that start around $10, to intricate contraptions that will run you in the hundreds, and everything in between. Starter kits will be around $20-$30.
5. Where Are You Vaping?
If you usually smoke while driving then you’ll want to get some accessories to help keep your hands on the wheel and your new vaporizer secure and in the right place. A car mount is probably a good idea.
If you usually kept a pack of cigarettes in your front shirt pocket, then you may want to switch to a neck sling. Vaporizers are usually too bulky to put in your pocket. A neck sling will keep your hands free and your vaporizer secure. There are also wallets and phone cases with ecig holders to choose from.
Picking The Right Vaporizer
So there’s much more to consider about vaporizers than you thought. That’s ok. It’s part of the fun of the experience! Go my friend, and pick the one right for you.
