Vaping Starter Kits FAQ

If you’re looking to make the switch then you’ve come to the right place as VPZ have all the latest starter kits and our specialists are on hand to offer you friendly, expert advice so you can begin your journey to becoming smoke-free.

So let’s have a look at some of the most common questions that are asked when people are looking to start vaping.

There’s so many Starter kits, how do I know which one to choose?

At the end of the day, vaping is subjective so what works for one person might not work for another.  We would always recommend going for a lower powered device with a similar draw and feel to that of a cigarette such as the Endura T-18E II or pod system such as the Smok Nord.


How do I know what e-liquid I need to help me stop smoking?

This can be a tricky one as it is all about what feels right for you and how many cigarettes you smoke per day, however we do have a general rule of thumb that can be used as a guide to get you on the right track.

Up to 5 cigarettes per day - 3mg

Between 5-10 cigarettes per day - 6mg

10-15 cigarettes per day - 12mg

15+ cigarettes per day - 18mg

If you feel your chosen strength is too throaty for you, we do also carry nicotine salt e-liquid which is a lot smoother meaning you can use a higher strength without the throat hit so these may also be worth a look.

Remember this is just a rough guide so if you feel your chosen strength is too much or not enough, you can always go up or down to suit you.

What e-liquid should I use in my starter kit?

Most starter kits are designed to be used with high PG liquids as these are thinner.  The reason we would recommend these liquids is because these devices generally use smaller coils which require thinner liquid so they wick more efficiently and stop you from getting a burnt taste.  The other benefit of high PG liquids is that PG also contributes to the throat hit so you will get more of a feel in your throat to mimic a cigarette.  

What’s the difference between pods and standard kits?

Whilst these operate on the same premise and work the same there are some differences.

Pod systems are generally smaller in size and form and this is due to the tank sitting inside the device.  What this means is that it looks sleeker and there is little risk of anything breaking if dropped. Some pod systems utilise replaceable coils whilst some you will have to replace the full pod when the coil burns out.

Standard kits are a bit different as these are generally larger and rather than the tank sitting inside the device, these will screw on.  Most of these devices utilize replaceable coils which is great but can be a bit messy to change when on the move.  

Again this is something that is all down to personal preference.


So there we have a brief run down of questions that surround starter kits so head down to your local VPZ to today as with something for everyone, we’re sure we can help you make the switch.
