Vaping Do's & Don'ts

November 02, 2023

Vaping has increased its popularity in recent years, and if you want to maximize the device's longevity and ensure a great vaping experience, there are some ground rules to follow. 

If you’ve recently switched to vaping, you might be overwhelmed trying to understand all of the do’s and don’ts that surround the vaping experience. If so, you’re in the right place! 

In this guide, we'll cover the primary do's and don'ts of vaping so you can vape responsibly. Keep these do’s and don’ts in mind to help enhance your vaping experience. 

Vaping Do's

Vaping isn't as straightforward as smoking a cigarette. Much more goes into it, such as choosing a quality vape and knowing the various styles of vaping. Here's what you should do: 

Buy a High-Quality Vape 

The performance of a high-quality vape is more consistent, which means you can count on consistent vapour production, flavour, and nicotine delivery with each use. In contrast, lower-quality vapes may produce uneven results.

Learn Basic Vaping Techniques

If it's your first time vaping, you'll want to learn the basics. As a beginner, opt for a style that feels comfortable for your first experience. Start with the two most basic inhaling methods for vapes:

  • Mouth to Lung (MTL): Place the vape in your mouth, inhale the vapour for a few seconds, hold it briefly, then slowly breathe it into your lungs before exhaling.
  • Direct to Lung (DL): This technique sends the vapour directly to your lungs. Inhale the vapour into your lungs quickly and exhale almost immediately.

Clean Your Device 

Vape juices often have a sticky nature due to their food-grade ingredients. When they combine with a new flavour in your vaping device, it can lead to an unpleasant taste. Regular cleaning is key to extending your vape device's lifespan.

Therefore, it's essential to clean your vape right after each use. Take apart the device to clean each component thoroughly. 

You can use soap and water or disposable wipes for this task. For those tricky spots, cotton swabs can be handy for a thorough clean. 

Go for Tested Vape Juices 

If you're new to vaping, go for tested vape juice, especially the homogenous ones, which means there's an even distribution of ingredients within the e-liquid, including the base liquids, flavourings and nicotine. 

Be Responsible When Disposing of Vape Materials 

Vapes can be an environmental liability if you don't properly dispose of them. You need to disable your device and responsibly dispose of vaping materials like pods, coils, and e-liquid bottles. 

Vaping devices often have lithium-ion batteries, which should be taken to e-waste centers. If you need to toss a battery, it's best to wait until you find a battery disposal point. 

Gradually Lower Nicotine Levels if You Want to Quit Smoking

If you want to quit smoking, you'll want to taper the nicotine levels gradually. The good news is vape juices come in varying nicotine levels, so you can customize your experience.

Starting with a higher nicotine e-juice is acceptable, but the goal should be to taper down gradually if you intend to quit smoking.

Vaping Don'ts

New vapers commonly make crucial mistakes that can jeopardize their safety and harm their device. Avoid these habits if you want to vape responsibly. 

Don't Try All Flavours At Once 

One of the best parts about vaping is the wide variety of flavour options available. Vape flavours can range from fruity and dessert-like to coffee, menthol, and tobacco, among many others. 

With so many choices, trying them all at once can make it challenging to identify your favourite. However, exclusively sticking to one flavour might lead to a vaper's tongue, where you feel a single taste in your mouth.

Take your time savouring each flavour until you discover your preference. Alternatively, if you wish to explore multiple flavours simultaneously, consider purchasing different vape devices to avoid the need for frequent cleaning and refilling with new flavours. This approach also helps prevent flavour overlap due to the varying strengths of different flavours.

Don't Expose Your Device to Heat 

Exposing your vape juice to elevated temperatures can compromise its quality. When vaping outdoors, make sure to shield your device from direct sunlight. Store vapes in a cool, dark location to safeguard the flavour and quality of your vape juices.

Don't Disobey Smoking Rules

It's polite not to vape indoors where the public is. While the effects of second-hand aerosol from vaping are expected to be lower than that of the effects of second-hand smoke from tobacco products like cigarettes, the health effects of exposure to second-hand aerosol from vapes are still being studied.

Don't Charge Your Device Overnight 

You may think charging your vape is a simple process, but you may need to learn how to charge your vape

Many beginners make the mistake of leaving their devices to charge overnight. However, this will significantly shorten the battery's lifespan. In addition to damaging the battery, there's a risk of harming the entire device if left charging overnight.

Don't Forget to Hydrate 

Frequent vaping can lead to dryness in your mouth, but maintaining proper hydration can help prevent the vaper's tongue. Be on the lookout for symptoms of hydration, and make sure you’re drinking plenty of water. 

Vaping can be dehydrating due to the presence of propylene glycol in e-liquids, which tends to absorb water molecules, potentially depriving your body of necessary hydration. Therefore, it's crucial to increase your water intake while vaping.

Make it a habit to drink water regularly, even before you feel thirsty or notice signs of dehydration. Initial vaping-related dehydration is common among beginners, but over time, you'll develop a habit of staying adequately hydrated while enjoying your vaping sessions.

Don't Chain Vape

People looking to quit smoking by switching to vaping often find themselves chain vaping, taking multiple puffs in quick succession. This habit can lead to faster coil burnout and potentially cause dry hits. It may also harm your vaping device if you continue to chain vape, even when you notice it heating up.

It's essential to allow your wicks to saturate properly to reduce the risk of dry hits. The general guideline is to wait 15 to 30 seconds before taking another puff.

However, waiting for 30 seconds can feel like an eternity for those trying to quit smoking. In such cases, you can opt for e-juice with a higher nicotine level. This choice provides a satisfying and robust nicotine dose, helping you resist the temptation of taking another puff before the 30-second wait is over.

Final Thoughts

Vaping can be an enjoyable experience, especially when you follow the proper guidelines. That means properly storing, cleaning, and maintaining your device. By keeping these do’s and don’ts in mind, you can help enhance your vaping experience. 

One of the best ways to ensure a great vaping experience is to choose reliable, high-quality vape pens, such as the ones from RELX. We have a wide selection of styles and options to choose from so vapers can customize their experience to what best suits their needs. 

With options for vape devices, disposable vapes and pods, you can choose the vaping method that best suits your preferences and find the ideal fit for you. Choose from plenty of vape pens to fit your aesthetics or a wide range of flavours to meet your taste buds.
