Vaping for the first time is a big decision for a lot of people, so it makes sense to be prepared before you start so there aren’t any surprises. Here we go through a few things that you should expect and look out for when you first start vaping with blu.
1. Getting The Device That Works For You
There are a few different types of e-cigarette kit available from blu, so it’s understandable if you’re unsure which one will work best for you. The blu PLUS+™ is a smaller, sleeker e-cigarette which makes it easier to carry around, whereas the blu PRO™ is more powerful and lasts for much longer. The blu PLUS+™ comes in two different kits: the Rechargeable Kit and the Xpress Kit. There are also blu® Disposable e-cigarettes which don’t need to be charged or refilled and can be used straight out of the box, making them ideal for travel.
As we said, it can be a little overwhelming, but there’s tons of information in the About blu section of our website which will help you decide on the best e-cigarette for your vaping needs. It’s also worth noting that many vapers will change the type of e-cig they use, so if one isn’t quite working for you, it may just be that you’d be better off with another one.
2. Different Flavors
One of the best things about vaping is that there are loads of different flavors to try, but when you start vaping it can be a little confusing as to which one will be best for you. Many people like the familiar taste of Tobacco or Menthol, but there are also flavors such as Blueberry and Cherry to try should you want something different.
The best thing to do is to keep an open mind and accept that it may take some time to find your perfect flavor. Many vapers like to vape a number of different flavors depending on their mood.
3. Finding The Right Nicotine Strength
As with flavors, e-liquid also comes in a number of different nicotine strengths which will affect your vape. The different levels of nicotine can be confusing, but in time most vapers find ones that they like best. Many vapers start with a higher concentration of nicotine and, over time, some vapers like to decrease the level of nicotine in their e-liquid. There are even 0% nicotine e-liquids for those who want to vape without it.

4. E-Cigarette Maintenance
Looking after your e-cigarette is important as you’ll want it to last for as long as possible. There are a few different factors to consider when you start vaping, such as keeping your e-cigarette clean, finding a good place to store it and looking after the e-cigarette’s battery.
All of these things are pretty easy to pick up but can be a bit confusing if you’ve not come across e-cigarettes before. Fortunately, there’s loads of information our site about how to look after your e-cigarette:
5. Where Can I Vape?
Understanding where you can and can’t vape is also important, as the rules on using e-cigarettes in various locations has changed a lot over the years. When e-cigarettes were first introduced, there were few regulations restricting the use of e-cigarettes in locations such as at work or in restaurants, meaning that one of the advantages of using e-cigarettes was that they could be used inside of public places.
However, in recent years regulations have been passed to stop people from using e-cigarettes so freely, and as a result there is often a lot of confusion as to where they can be used. Furthermore, different countries often have very different rules relating to e-cigs, meaning that travel can be especially troublesome for those looking to take their e-cigarettes on holiday.
Most locations now have guidelines on where and when you can vape, so the best thing to do before heading anywhere is to check out the website of the place you’re attending for clarification. Members of the staff will also be aware of a location’s vaping rules. If you’re looking to go abroad with your e-cigarettes, blu has a guide to travelling with your e-cigs as well as a rundown on vaping laws across the states and around the world.
