Five Reasons Why People Start Vaping

Five reasons why people start vaping

Why people start vaping may vary from person to person. There isn’t just one main reason someone decides to pick up vaping, as vaping seems to satisfy different needs. Check out our top five reasons to start vaping.

1. Relax

While some people start vaping to join a community, others use it as a way to relax. Many people find the act of inhaling and exhaling relaxing, which is basically what you do when you vape. Another reason people find vaping relaxing is because of the different flavors. Some of the flavors are inspired by soothing ingredients such as vanilla and menthol.

2. Join the community

Friends meet at a vapeshop

Some people start vaping because they are attracted to the growing vaping communities popping up across the globe. There are large vape meets at bars, vape shops or other places where vapers unite and inhale together. Of course, you don’t have to, but when you start vaping you are welcomed into a large community of vapers. Within the community tips and gadgets are exchanged and it’s seen as a way to make new friends.

3. Control

When you vape you can choose what you put into your device and what you inhale. You can make decisions about the nicotine concentration in your liquids. If you don’t want any nicotine you can choose liquids with zero percent nicotine. Or choose liquids with a higher percentage, depending on your preference.

4. Flavors

blu comes in a variety of flavors

Vaping involves e-liquids and if you didn’t already know: there are a whole lot of flavors to try out. From fruity Berry Cobler to Mint Chocolate and Caramel Café, the sky is the limit. It’s an easy way to experience all kinds of different flavors and get a taste of a wide variety of fruits. But don’t forget; it’s also very good to eat the actual fruits.

5. Becoming a vaping hobbyist

For some people vaping is more of a hobby than anything else. Just like some people can be crazy about cars and need to know everything there is to know about them, some people do the same with vapes.  There are many different devices to collect and each model has its own unique features. Vape hobbyists typically have multiple devices and know exactly how to get the most out of every single one of the vapes. If you take up vaping as a hobby, be sure to check out blu’s Explore Vaping  section to familiarize yourself with the basics and more!

Vaping For Beginners

New to vaping? Five things you should know

E-cigarettes have been around for over a decade, since 2009 blu has been at the forefront. Today they’re used by many people around the world and have become increasingly popular. There are even vape meets, where vape enthusiasts swap new flavors and gadgets. If you’re new to the world of vaping, it might seem confusing, perhaps even a tad overwhelming with all those different terms. To get you up to speed, here are five things to know before you start.

1. There are different types of devices

In essence an e-cigarette is an electronic device that heats a flavored liquid containing nicotine and some other ingredients. The heating process creates vapor, which is inhaled by the vaper.

A lot of people don’t know that there are different types of devices. They come in a number of forms and models and to be refilled some require liquids and others require cartridges/tanks. Vapes that require an e-liquid are called Open System e-cigarettes and our blu PRO™ Kit is an example of this type of vape. The myblu™ Kit, on the other hand, require cartridges/tanks and are called Closed System e-cigarettes.

Apart from the closed and open system e-cigarettes also more advanced devices are available, called Mods, APVs or Box Mods. These vapes often feature some kind of modification to the size of the cartridge/tank or battery power in order to adjust to the vaper’s personal taste. Some require the vaper to drip e-liquid onto a heating mechanism and don’t make use of a cartridge/tank at all. They are called DripTips. These advanced devices are not sold by blu and should only be used by advanced vapes.

Blu has strict quality control standards to ensure only the best possible devices. This is what makes the blu range better than other electronic cigarettes. You’ll also find industry-exclusive packs within the collection, such as the blu PLUS+™ Recharge Kit. This kit contains a pack which allows you to charge your batteries on the go, while storing additional flavor cartridges/tanks and spare batteries.

2. How to vape – Understanding how to inhale  your first time round

Vaping is essentially inhaling vapor, but before you get started you should first familiarize yourself with your device. As we’ve learned that are different devices that work in slightly different ways. To vape with our myblu device, for example, all you have to do is click in a liquidpod, vape and repeat.

Don’t go all out with your fist inhale, as it is recommended to start with a few primer puffs. These are short puffs where no vapor is inhaled, that increase the vapor production and help improve the flavor.

Once you’re finished with your primer puffs it’s time to get down to business. There are different vaping techniques you can try and most vapers belong to one of two categories: inhalers and mouth holders. Inhalers inhale the vapor directly into the lungs, which tends to create a stronger sensation. Mouth holders don’t inhale the vapor directly into their lungs, but first hold it in their mouth for a while. Some mouth holders even exhale before inhaling the vapor into the lungs. In general, you will get a better flavor sensation with mouth holding.

3. Keep your battery clean and charged

The battery is an essential part of a vape and should be properly cared for. To keep the battery working properly it is important to clean it on a regular basis. If you carry your device around in your pocket or bag it regularly gets exposed to dust and dirt. The terminal is the most important part of the battery and is also the only exposed part of the device. Cleaning the battery regularly ensures that you don’t force dirt into the device which can cause the vape to malfunction. To clean the battery, hold a cotton bud like a pencil and swirl the tip around the terminal to remove dirt. Also make sure that the inner walls of the terminal are dirt-free.

As you use the vape, the battery will of course drain until it’s empty and the devices stops working. To get the most out of your vape, it’s important to keep the battery charged. As the battery drains, the vapor produced will also weaken, which could lead to a lower dispersion rate of nicotine.

Another reason to keep your battery charged is to keep it performing the way it should. Most e-cigarettes use lithium-ion batteries. This type of battery likes to stay charged and may lose the ability to hold the maximum charge if you tend to let it drain to zero percent. On the other hand, overcharging the device will also cause performance to decline.

4. Maintaining your vape

Maintaining your vaping device is simple

 

Apart from the battery, it’s also important to keep the rest of the device clean to keep it working properly. A paper towel and some water can save you a lot of headaches. One of the important components to keep clean is the clearomizer. This is the section of an e-cigarette where the e-liquid is stored and converted into vapor. If you don’t clean the clearomizer regularly, you might find a residual build-up of e-liquid that can lead to leaking. Take the device apart before cleaning to make sure the battery doesn’t get wet. Pour some water into the clearomizer, cover the top, and shake it for a few seconds. Then pour out the water and wipe it down thoroughly. If you’re not too keen on cleaning, it’s also a good idea to buy a second clearomizer and simply swap them out.

The mouth piece is another component you’ll want to keep clean. Simply because most people don’t like the taste of lint or debris in their mouth and would rather taste the flavor instead.

5. Storage

Storage is also an important part of keeping your device in top shape. Storing your e-cigarette on its side or upside down could cause it to leak, which will of course deplete your e-liquid. It’s best to store the device upright. Vapes also don’t do well in direct sunlight or extreme heat for long periods of time. You might like tanning but remember to store your device out of the clutches of the sun and at room temperature. The same goes for e-liquid. Exposure to direct sunlight over a long period of time could change the taste.
