Introduction: New to vaping?

Vaping can be like a maze at first

For years now I have been a smoker. My habit was getting the best of me and although I tried to quit a multitude of times, I always seemed to fall off the wagon. 

A buddy of mine introduced me to vaping. I was curious by the huge clouds of vapor and the aromatic aroma that filled the air.  

After my friend filled me in with the general technology and evolution of vaping, I started my own crusade to find out more about juice and atomizers, along with the effects on the body. Vaping sounded too good to be true and I wanted to make sure that I wasn't trading a bad habit for another. 

After intensive research, I come to realize that vaping is definitely a safer alternative than smoking traditional cigarettes. Although vaping is not 100% safe, it definitely had its benefits that I could live with. 

If you are reading this article, that means you were probably in the same boat. Which means, you are searching for an alternative to smoking cigarettes and are considering to make the jump to vaping. 

  First off, kudos to you for doing research and being cautious with what you inhale. Secondly, welcome to a new exciting world of nicotine mixed with intense flavors.   All I can tell you is I am so happy I dropped my pack a day habit to become a proud vaper!

  My regret, I didn't make the transition sooner. However, with the limited amount of information and studies of long term effects, I was hesitant. Once I finally understood what vaping was all about, along with the dynamics of vaping products, it was a "no-brainer" decision. 

  My position today is to become a resource for the vaping community, along with assisting new vapers to the world of vaping through education. 

Before I dive into products, if you have not read my article "What is Vaping?" I would suggest starting there before heading on to the next part of this article. Once you understand what vaping is, then you can start assembling your own experience.;


For those who understand the vaping concept, let's discuss hardware. If you are just beginning your vaping adventure, this is the perfect article for you as I would like to start out with something easy to help you understand the basics.

Starter Kits

The easiest method to starting your vape experience is to go with with a reputable, and quality performing starter kit. Kangertech Subox Mini is a perfect kit to get you everything that you need, minus a battery. In this particular start kit, you will find it contains the following:

  1. Mod box- This is the main device that you hold in your palm that will house the battery to power the equipment you use.
  2. Tank- Tanks screw into the top of the mod box and stores juice for vaping
  3. Coil- These go inside the tank, juice flows through it to a heating element inside which is powered by the mod box-where the vape comes from
  4. Drip tip- Basically the mouthpiece that snap into the top to the tank for you to inhale the vape.
  5.  Battery- The life source of your setup. 


Purchasing a starter kit is an easy way to get your foot into the door. You will have everything you need (minus the batteries and juice) in one convenient box. 

Now that you have your kit, let's talk about Juice. For me, this is the best part of the process. With the huge selection of juice blends available, I feel like a kid in a Ice Cream shop - LITERALLY. 

Do I want a doughnut flavor? Hmm, maybe I want something that tastes like cookies? Wait, this Crystal Smurf sounds tasty, which one do I go with? 

Luckily, many juice makers offer sample sizes for you to try. However, if you know what you want, then my recommendation is go with a premium juice. The average price for a glass bottle of juice (30ml) is about $18-$20.   

If you are still unsure on your Juice selection, please don't hesitate to contact our Customer Service team. They would be more than happy to assist you with your search.
