A Quick Guide to Vaping

One of the things vaping enthusiasts appreciate about electronic cigarettes is the fact that there are so many options. Color, size, flavor, design, and more are all yours to play with until you create the best combination for your uses and preferences. Feel free to experiment, follow your moods and curiosity to find your favorites.

Your ecig will need to have the necessary components; battery, cartomizer, eliquid, mouthpiece and LED light, in order to function properly. These components function together to create a vapor, the vaper inhales the vapor, in order to get the nicotine, or just to experience the pleasure of vaping.

One of the most versatile components of a BLU electronic cigarette is the eliquid. This liquid is made up of a water with the addition of 1 or 2 oil bases. Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin are oil bases that are present in many personal care products, household products, and even food.

Propylene Glycol is thinner in consistency, and lends itself well to flavoring. The fact that it is thinner has lead to some vapers favoring PG for their electronic cigarettes, the reason being that it causes less wear on their atomizers. But, it’s not a favorite by all. Some find that they are allergic to it, or that it causes irritation in the throat. Others take issue with the fact that it tends to create less vapor, due to its consistency.

Vegetable Glycerin is the sweeter and thicker of the two base oils. Its consistency can clog up the atomizer some. Not terribly, but enough to take a toll on the life span of the atomizer. It comes in a wide variety of flavors, though not nearly as many as PG. Again, due to its consistency VG produces more vapor, it is also not a throat irritant.

Many vapers today favor a mix of the two. Mixes in the ratio of 50-50 or 80-20 are popular. This requires some personal experimentation. What vaping enthusiasts are after is a combination that delivers the benefits of each eliquid, while canceling out the negatives of each. Obviously this is a matter of personal preference and best explored when one is an experienced vaper. Initially you will want to keep your experimentation to what’s available on the market. Get a feel for what provides you the most enjoyment, and works best with your lifestyle and health.
