Vaping for Beginners: Everything You Need to Know

Vaping has become increasingly popular in recent years as people look for alternative ways to smoke. If you're a smoker who wants to switch to vaping, this guide is for you. This post will cover everything you need to know to get started, including what supplies you'll need and how to use them.

Choose a vaping device.

The first step is choosing which vape device suits you best. If you're looking for an experience similar to smoking a cigarette, we recommend starting with a pod system from Vaporesso's store. These devices tend to look and feel like traditional cigarettes, making them ideal for smokers new to vaping.

Pick your nicotine level.

If you're a cigarette addict, using a device with high nicotine levels is best, so satisfaction is guaranteed. However, if you only smoke now and then or are attempting to stop smoking cigarettes completely, you might as well begin with lower nicotine levels instead and work your way up over time.

Get everything you need.

The good news is that switching to vaping doesn't have to be expensive. All you need to get started is an e-cigarette starter kit, which typically includes a battery, charger, and a few cartridges of e-liquid. You can find these kits online or in most convenience stores.

Once you have your supplies, it's time to start vaping! Here's a step-by-step guide:

  1. Charge your battery. Most e-cigarettes come with a USB charger, so you can plug it into any USB port to charge it.
  2. Fill your cartridge with e-liquid. Make sure not to overfill it; you need enough to cover the wicking material inside the cartridge.
  3. Screw the cartridge onto the battery.
  4. Take a drag from the mouthpiece; you should see the LED light on the tip of the e-cigarette light up when you do this. Inhale slowly and evenly until you see vapor coming out of the device, then exhale.
  5. Repeat as necessary!

How does a vape function?

Most cigalikes and pod systems use disposable cartridges filled with e-liquid to work. E-liquids comprise propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), flavorings, and nicotine. When you take a puff from your device, the heating element vaporizes the e-liquid so you can inhale it.

Different ratios of PG and VG give you different vaping experiences. For example, a higher PG ratio will result in a sharper throat hit that's reminiscent of smoking cigarettes, while a higher VG ratio will produce thicker clouds of vapor. If you're unsure of which to choose, we recommend starting with a 50/50 blend and adjusting from there until you find your perfect ratio!


Vaping is a great alternative for smokers who are looking to quit cigarettes or cut down on their smoking habit. With its many benefits—including being cheaper and healthier than smoking—it's no wonder that vaping has become so popular in recent years. We hope this guide has given you all the information you need to get started on your vaping journey!
