How to Use a Vape Pen for the First Time
Vaping is becoming an increasingly popular way to consume nicotine and other substances, but it can be intimidating to try something new. However, with the right knowledge and equipment, anyone can learn how to use a vape pen for the first time.
The key is understanding the basics of your vape device and the act of vaping in general. With this information in hand, you'll be good to go!
Types of Devices
You can choose from a few different kinds of vape devices when switching to vaping. Vape pens, vape pods, and disposable vapes offer slightly different user experiences and vary in their components and usage.
Vape pens are the most common type of device used for vaping, and (as their name would imply) they typically look like a pen: long and skinny, discreet and portable. They usually have a pre-filled or refillable cartridge you fill with your own e-liquid or concentrates. If you want something convenient and inconspicuous, a vape pen can be a great choice.
If you want a modern take on the traditional vape pen design, the RELX Infinity might be for you. Its sleek look and ergonomic mouthpiece provide optimal comfort for vapers. Its leak-resistant maze ensures that your device won't suffer from any unwanted spills, while its SmartPace Vibrate Alert helps you keep track of your vaping pace to ensure that you don't overdo it.
If you want to start with something a little more basic, you might like the RELX Essential vape pen, which features all the great benefits people love about RELX designs at a great price. You'll still get an ergonomic mouthpiece, symmetrical pods for a streamlined and aesthetic look, and leak-resistant technology to keep the experience clean. And, with eight different flavour varieties available, there's something for everyone.
If you care about the finer things in life and want a vape that reflects artisan design and aesthetics, you'll be impressed by RELX Artisan's modern design concept. The Artisan line uses high-quality materials and sophisticated artistry to create lasting products. Made with prized European leather, the Artisan is an accessory in its own right that will turn heads while delivering the same high-quality vape pen experience that RELX is known for.
Vape pods are similar to vape pens but use a pod system you can fill with your own e-liquid or pre-filled disposable pods. They’re a bit larger and bulkier than pens, and the battery life also tends to be longer. Vape pods can be a better option for longevity if you want to invest in equipment once and use it at length.
RELX Pod Pro
Vape pods can refer to shorter, smaller pod-designed batteries rather than a slim pen design, or they can refer to the actual pre-filled cartridge pods you use along with a vape pen battery. RELX's Pod Pro offers over a dozen great flavours with authentic taste, from classics such as mango and menthol to unique flavours like Hawaiian Sunshine and Dark Sparkle. These pods are compatible with RELX Infinity, Essential, and Artisan, making them a great option for just about any vaper!
Disposable vape devices are all-in-one devices already filled with e-liquid. You don't need to worry about the battery running out, as they’re meant to be used until they’re empty and then disposed of.
They’re a great option if you want something easy and convenient with no hassle of refilling or charging. However, once the battery runs out, you'll need to buy a new one.
If you want something that’ll last longer, check out the RELX Stick, which offers a disposable vape with a mouthpiece shaped to fit your lips comfortably, extra-rich flavours, and larger clouds. Although disposable, you won't have to worry about the battery running out too early, thanks to a long-lasting and powerful pure cobalt battery. Choose your ideal flavour from 14 different options.
Want lots of flavour options? Choose your favourite from the RELX Bar's 19 different flavours and enjoy up to 600 smoother puffs until the battery runs out. You'll know you're puffing correctly when the light indicator at the base of the bar lights up, and you'll know when your juice is almost out thanks to a transparent e-liquid pod.
Setting Up Your Vape Pen for the First Time
If you've bought your first vaping device and are ready to use it, follow these steps.
Remove any packaging from your vape device, including the plastic wrapper, seals, and other materials.
Choose a Pod
If relevant, choose a vape pod that suits your need. Ensure you're using the correct pod type for your device, as different devices may use differently shaped pods. Disposable vapes or vape devices that come with pre-filled cartridges won't need this step. If you’re using an e-liquid, you’ll need to fill your device properly.
Next, charge your vape. Some devices come pre-charged, while others may require a few hours to get a full charge.
Read the instructions included with your device and understand how to charge it properly. You'll also need to recharge the device when the battery runs out (unless it's a disposable).
Ready to vape? Turn the device on if necessary, then gently inhale the vapour. Start slow and take small puffs until you become accustomed to the feel of vaping.
Clean and Store Properly
As you use your vaping device, clean it regularly to avoid a build-up of vape juice. Use rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab to gently clean the area where the cartridge or pod meets the battery or the rest of the vape device.
Repeat if needed and allow the alcohol to completely evaporate before using it again. Then, turn it off and store it properly in a safe, dry place.

Vaping has seen a surge in popularity over the last decade. Technological changes mean that what we have today is almost unrecognizable from what was available just ten years ago. E-liquid varieties are blossoming to the point it’s difficult to keep up, while new modifications and mechanics are heralding in vaping’s much-anticipated 4th generation.
E-liquid, or vape juice as it's commonly known, is the main ingredient of the entire vaping experience. Without it, you'd just have a small contraption in your hand with no vapour coming out of it. The vape juice is what provides the act of vaping, delivering a satisfying flavour, along with the kind of throat hit that has long mimicked traditional smoking - only healthier. Let's explore it a bit more below.
