Common Vaping Mistakes to Avoid

The nice thing about vaping is that you can’t mess it up. Sure, you can make a few basic mistakes, but there’s nothing you can’t correct.

Of course, the avoidance of common mistakes allows you to better enjoy your experience. Here are five mistakes to watch for:

1. Shopping by Price, Not Quality

From the salt nic juice products you purchase to the actual vape device, quality should always come first.

As a beginner, you don’t want to overspend, but you also shouldn’t make decisions based on price alone.

For example, our ejuice is among the best in the industry, thanks in large part to the quality of the ingredients.

A focus on quality over price will always lead you in the right direction.

2. Too Much Too Soon

It’s better to ease into vaping, as this allows you to become familiar with the industry, available products, and the impact on your body.

By taking a slow and steady approach, there’s also a better chance of preventing side effects such as:

  • Dizziness
  • Dry mouth
  • Dry skin
  • Itchiness
  • Insomnia
  • Nosebleeds

As your body adapts, you’ll find it possible to vape more often without any side effects.

3. Vaping the Same Way You Smoke

Many people start vaping because they want to stop smoking. While this is a good decision, don’t fall into the trap of vaping like you’re smoking.

For instance, the harder you puff on a cigarette the faster it’ll burn. However, with vaping, this doesn’t hold true. If you take fast, short, and hard puffs, you get less vapor and the experience isn’t nearly as enjoyable.

4. Neglecting to Maintain Your Vaping Device

An e-cigarette is not the most complex device, but it still requires proper and regular maintenance. If you neglect to maintain your vaping device, performance will decline and it’s more likely to malfunction sooner than expected.

Some basic tips include:

  • Regularly replace your coils
  • Keep your vape clean, such as by regularly rinsing the tank
  • Charge and replace your battery as necessary

5. Buying Locally

It makes sense to buy cigarettes locally, such as at a gas station, but the same doesn’t hold true for nic salt, vaping devices, and accessories.

The benefit of buying from a local vape shop is the ability to see and feel a product before pulling the trigger. But, you’re missing out on three key advantages of buying online:

  • Access to a larger selection
  • Lower prices
  • Opportunity to read reviews before purchasing

There’s nothing wrong with buying locally, as long as you realize you may not get the best deal on the best product.

Final Thoughts

You should expect to make some mistakes when you first start vaping. The five above are among the most common, but there are others that could creep into your life at some point.

The key to more enjoyable vaping in the future is to protect yourself against making the same mistakes, time and time again.
