With each day, vaping only becomes more popular among the public consciousness. And it’s easy to see why! There are a variety of reasons why vaping is an attractive recreational activity to people — it’s an alternative to traditional smoking, a great social activity, and, depending on the vape juices that you’re using, can be a good way to feel relaxed and de-stressed.
That’s why so many people are getting into vaping! But, like many other things, it’s important to remember that there are countless mistakes that can be made if you don’t know what you’re doing. With vaping, it’s paramount that you understand common mistakes so that you can avoid them. Rookie vaping mistakes can drain your wallet quickly, and may even affect your health.
As the creators of the Vesper One luxury vapes, we want everyone to know the ins and outs of vaping. Here are some easy mistakes you can make when you’re starting out — be responsible and don’t let these things happen!
Using Cheap Equipment
We can’t emphasize the importance of investing in quality vaping gear when you’re getting started. This means purchasing a nice, quality vape, with cartridges and flavors that were engineered by experts.
There are various downsides to using cheap equipment, such as the following:
- Build Quality: If you buy an $8 vape pen, don’t be surprised if it ends up breaking on you. Cheap vapes are notoriously fragile, and will likely end up having a relatively short lifespan. Sure, it’s not cheap to replace it with another at the same price, but doing this over and over will add up quickly.
- Volatile Components: While this is admittedly an extremely rare occurrence, cheap vape products can have volatile batteries which can cause them to explode. This, tragically, killed a man in 2018, but it can have disastrous consequences even if not fatal. The explosions have been tentatively linked to battery build quality. By investing in a vape with a powerful, reliable, and well-built battery, you’re safeguarding yourself against danger.
- Quality of Vaping: The other big downside with cheap vapes and vape cartridges is that you’re robbing yourself of a better experience. Cheap, poorly made vape juice cartridges often lack the flavor and potency of their more well-made counterparts, and many cheap vape devices don’t afford you any kind of meaningful control over your vaping experience, such as temperature and intensity.
A cheap vape can ruin your experience! If your first vaping experience is a bad one, it might turn you off to the world of vaping forever. That’s why we recommend Vesper One — while our product is no doubt a luxury vape, it’s priced just under $100, to keep it relatively affordable for most people.
Treating it Like Smoking
One of the most important things that any new vaper can know about the subject is that vaping is NOT smoking! They are, obviously, very similar. With both smoking and vaping, you’re inhaling from an apparatus, enjoying the flavor and potentially a minor buzz, and exhaling fumes. But don’t be mistaken — there are small differences that set vaping apart from vaping.
When you smoke, you’re generally taking short, hard draws when you inhale. This is because cigarettes burn proportionally to the strength of your puffs. Most smokers take hard breaths so that it feels more potent.
If you inhale the same way you do a cigarette, it will diminish your experience. Vaping is more of a slow burn, and calls for long, soft, controlled puffs. Take it nice and easy when you vape — this may feel unnatural at first if you’re accustomed to the feel of a cigarette, but once you get it right, it will feel like magic.
Vaping at times feels elegant and silky smooth compared to harsher feel of traditional smoking. Doing it right will not only make the experience more enjoyable, it also prevents the likelihood of taxing your vape too much or accidentally inhaling vape juice.
For all the reasons why cigarettes are unappealing to the public eye, they do have one arguable advantage — they have a built-in mechanism that allows the user to see how much they’ve smoked. Specifically, cigarettes expire, and after you’ve smoked so many, it’s easy to know how much you’re pushing your limits, based on how many cigarettes you’ve smoked and how many are left in your pack.
With vapes, the cartridges you use do run out of juice, similar to a cigarette, but it doesn’t happen as quickly as with cigs, and it can be very easy for a vaper to just puff all day, not knowing how much vapor they’re actually inhaling. While some vape juices (such as hemp-based CBD oils) aren’t inherently harmful, it can be problematic if you’re using your vape as an e-cigarette. Unfortunately, it’s possible to just vape all day and not realize that you’re taking in way more nicotine than you’d get if you had stuck to cigarettes!
Vaping is fun and we absolutely endorse it as a recreational activity, but all things must have balance and we urge all newcomers to err on the side of caution, rather than vaping to the point of excess.
Blowing Vapor Into People’s Faces
When you’re smoking, it’s sort of an unwritten rule that it’s taboo to blow smoke right into people’s faces. It’s just not very classy, and you’re also essentially forcing people to inhale what you’re blowing out. This is problematic with smoke, because smoke has harmful chemicals. Even if the victim of your fumes is a fellow smoker, they probably would rather inhale their smoke instead of yours.
Well, the same concept still applies with vaping. A lot of people feel like they can be more cavalier with their vapor clouds because vapor isn’t harmful like smoking is. Unfortunately, this isn’t completely true. While we love vaping, and have expressed that love by creating the Vesper One luxury vape, vaping isn’t harmless, which is why you shouldn’t force anyone to breathe your clouds.
Think of virtually any device or tool. Is there a single one in existence that doesn’t face the consequences of natural wear and tear? Inevitably, the more you use a physical object, the more it’ll wear down. Vapes are no exception, which is why you’ll want to be sure to practice routine maintenance.
Any vaper, newcomer or veteran, will benefit from routinely cleaning their vape. With a clean mouthpiece and well-kept internals, the quality of your vaping will be untarnished, and many vapes have replaceable coils which will also make sure that your vape juice doesn’t feel burnt after long-term use.
