6 Common Mistakes When Switching to Vaping
Problems When Starting Out and the Solutions
Vaping Makes You Cough
If you cough when you vape it is likely to be your e-juice. You might have a PG allergy/irritation. Try an e-juice that has a higher VG content, and see how it feels. Also, you might be allergic to the flavor of your juice. Cinnamon is notorious for this. Also, buy juice that is clear. Some juices use dye to simulate the color of the flavor and that might be causing your coughing.
If you are a new vaper, you should buy your e-juice at a vape shop where you can sample the juice before buying.
You Feel Awkward Vaping
Some people have been smoking longer than some of you have been living and vaping on something like a Maxamus or the God mod might not be your cup of tea. If you fall into this category and you feel too conscious about vaping on a mod, then go with something you are more accustomed to. Sure, many vapers give slack to e-cigarettes, but if the shoe fits wear it. Vaping is about what works for YOU and not what other people tell you how it should be.
Your Battery is Constantly Dying
Looks like you need an upgrade. Buy a bigger battery unit like an 18650 mod, a box mod or pretty much any other advanced mod aside from an Ego or e-cigarette. This was a problem I started coming across about a month into vaping. Switching to an 18650 mod gave me enough power to last me the whole day.
It Feels Like You are Smoking Air
Two things, you can up you nicotine level or the PG level for a more satisfying vape.
The Vapour Tastes Burnt
Your atomizer head is burnt out, or your cartomizer. Depending on what you are using. Time to buy a replacement. Good thing is they don’t cost much.
What flavor of e-juice is this? Candle wax?
Once dry hits have been solved, vaping will be perfected. Until then, we have to deal with them. Saturate your wick/cartomizer. Let your the wick/cartomizer absorb the e-juice. Prime your carto. Chain vaping, as awesome as it is, puts you in danger of dry hits as well. Once you start to taste a slight hint of dryness, stop and drip or let your wick absorb the e-liquid.
