So, you’ve made the choice to switch to vaping. What now? First things first, you need to procure some essential equipment…but what exactly is ‘essential’?
Well, every user is different! Each vaper has different expectations and consequently might be inclined to buy different items. Nonetheless, all vapers need certain fundamental components in order to get started. Fortunately, it doesn’t take long to learn the vocabulary and understand how your vaping device works and what it needs to stay operational.
Think of this list as a crash course in vaping.
Naturally, you need a device that will hold the liquid and house all parts of the heating mechanism.
In the early days, vaping tanks were small, simple and shaped like regular cigarettes, but now, we’re starting to see more and more diversification. More advanced models may even allow you to adjust temperature and power, so investing in a top-shelf tank is probably a good idea.
But, regardless of the size or colour of your tank, the most important instruction is to get a TPD compliant tank that meets all health and safety regulations.
Your vaping tank can’t do anything unless it’s filled with e cig liquid containing nicotine and flavouring additives.
As the liquid is heated, the vapour is produced and released through the mouthpiece. There are currently dozens of different liquids in the market, from fizzy soda flavours to fruity options. Most users decide on a single flavour and stick with it for a while, but others like to try out different possibilities before settling on a favourite brand.

Inside the vaping pod, the liquid is transferred into the wicks, which are in contact with coils capable of transforming electricity into heat. To avoid a science lesson, here’s what you need to know: without properly functioning coils and clean wicks, it’s impossible to vaporise the vaping juice.
Getting high-quality wicks and coils goes a long way towards ensuring that every vaping session is smooth and that you don’t have any issues with your equipment. Keep in mind that over time, wicks may get dirty or lose direct contact with the coils, meaning you may have to clean or replace these parts over time.
Just like your cell phone’s battery needs to be charged, so does your vape’s.
After all, electric power is the driving force behind the entire vaping mechanism. If you’re a frequent vaper, that means you’ll want to keep your device charged at all times.
While most models come with built-in batteries, it might be worth having a replacement at the ready, just in case. Top tip: pay attention to the specifics of your device, so that your backup battery and charger are compatible with it.
