4 Things To Know If You’re New To Vaping

February 04, 2019

If you’re new to vaping everything about it can seem confusing, even the words associated with the products can be confusing. Tanks, coils, clearomizers, atomizers, mods, and juice mean something completely different in this industry. And for someone just starting it can be somewhat intimidating. At END Vape & Smoke Supply we’re more than happy to get you started and find the right products specifically for you at our locations in Rochester, NY. In this post we’ll give you the basics to feel comfortable when coming in to talk with us about the various components that make up your new vape setup.

  1. How Does It Work?

Most people who are trying vaping for the first time have one question: how does it work? It’s both simple and a little complicated. The simple answer is: The tank of your vaping device holds the liquid of your choice, and the cotton wick inside absorbs the liquid. When you activate your device, the coils in the tank/clearomizer heat up, the liquid evaporates, and you inhale the vapor.

The more complicated answer depends on a variety of variables such as the type of device you’re using, what tank your device is fitted with, the type of the coils, and many other options.

  1. What Is an E-Cig Made Of?

An e-cig may seem complicated, but it’s a simple system that converts liquid to vapor. However there are different types of e-cigs depending on what it’s purpose is for you.

The entire device, called the atomizer, comes in three different forms: the clearomizer, glassomizer, and cartomizer. Each e-cig is made up of the battery, also called the mod, the coils, and the tank. Visit us at one of our eight vape shops in Rochester, NY and we will be happy to help you choose what is right for you! 

  • The battery powers the device, and can either be integrated into the unit or be replaceable. The mod houses the battery and charges the device.
  • The coils are wires that have been wound into a coil shape. The coils heat the e-liquid on the wicks to create the vapor that you inhale.
  • The tank is the part that holds the wicks, the heating coil, and the e-liquid.

3. What Type of Tank Should I Use?

    There are many different types of vape tanks to choose from but they all have the same basic function. They hold the e-liquid and feed that liquid either by cotton or wick to the coil which heats the liquid to the point of vapor, which you inhale.

    For many people who are new to vaping, the type of tank is more about volume than anything else, but your budget and other factors can come into play when choosing your first setup. At our vape shops in Rochester, NY we’re here to answer all your questions about your new vape.

    4. When Should I Change The Coil?

    Tanks and coils go hand in hand and as they’re arguably the two most important components of your vape device. However, just like there are many variations of the tank there are variations of the coils as well.

    The coils will wear down over time and need to be replaced and there are several ways of doing that. Some experienced vapers prefer to use rebuildable coils that are handmade, while others prefer to simply buy new coils and change them out.

    You’ll know that it’s time to change your coils when the amount and taste of the vapor is not the same. Depending on the type of atomizer you’re using, changing the coil is a straightforward affair. You simply remove the base of the atomizer, take out the coil, and then screw in the new one.

    Generally you will want to change your coil when you start to notice the taste of the vapor is different, so you can keep the same quality. Stop in at one of our vape shop locations in Rochester, NY and we will be happy to answer any questions you have!
