5 Vaping Errors to Avoid

It doesn’t matter if you’re new to vaping or have been enjoying the experience for many years, it’s possible you could make an error at some point.

Fortunately, the most common mistakes are easy to avoid. This can save you frustration, stress, and of course, money.

Here are five vaping errors to protect against:

1. Buying Too Many Products as a Beginner

When you first start vaping, give yourself time to settle in. Buying too many products will bog you down, while costing you a lot of money.

For example, if you purchase five different types of e-juice, you’ll jump around so much that you may never have the opportunity to fully experience each one.

Start slow, make note of what you like and don’t like, and then adjust your approach accordingly as you gain more experience.

2. Neglecting to Buy Online

There are definite benefits of visiting a local vape shop – such as the ability to ask questions and receive product demonstrations – but that doesn’t mean you should avoid the online world.

There are many reasons to buy products online, such as:

  • Access to a larger selection of products
  • Easier to compare the pros and cons
  • Lower prices

Before you purchase a new device or e-liquid, use the internet to learn more. 

3. Dry Hits

A common error among beginners, it’s one you can avoid if you gain the right knowledge early on.

The most common reasons for dry hits are using the wrong wattage or not enough e-juice in the wick.

When you make this mistake, you won’t enjoy the taste. Not to mention the fact that it can ruin your vaping device. 

4. Choosing the Wrong Vape Juice

Which flavor is best for you? Which level of nicotine makes the most sense? Do you know the difference between PG and VG?

If you neglect to answer these questions, you may assume that one vape juice is as good as the next. This simply isn’t true.

Start slow by purchasing one or two flavors with a low nicotine level. As you gain experience, you can introduce new products to your vaping regimen.

5. Buying Low Quality Products

If you’re switching from smoking cigarettes, you may be tempted to purchase the cheapest vaping products you can find. After all, it’s a great way to save money, right?

The problem with this is that low quality products don’t provide a high quality experience. Furthermore, they’re more likely to break down, thus costing you more money in the long run.

Final Thoughts

If you’re able to avoid these vaping errors, you’ll find it much easier to enjoy every aspect of your experience.

What steps do you take to avoid these errors? Are there any others that have stood in your way in the past?
