E-Cigs Vs Vape Kits
When you’re thinking about switching from cigarettes, it’s important to know what the difference is between an e-cig and a vape kit. The main difference between these two types of smoking is that a vape kit is refillable and rechargeable. This can make a big difference to your experience and how much maintenance you’ll have to do.
What Is An E-Cigarette?
An e-cigarette is a battery-powered device that heats liquid nicotine and flavoring into aerosol. Users inhale the vapor, which can look like smoke from a regular cigarette or cigar. They come in many shapes and sizes, including mini (often called cig-a-like) vape pens, vape pod systems like JUUL, e-hookahs, e-cigars, advanced personal vaporizers or mods, and ones that resemble pens, USB flash drives, or other items.
What Is A Vape Kit?
Vape kits are a package deal that includes everything you need to get started. Typically, they come with a battery or mod, a tank, and e-liquid. You can also choose to purchase a kit with a refillable tank that you can replace with any e-liquid. The e-liquid you use will determine the flavor and throat hit that you experience. Propylene glycol (PG) is the primary flavor-carrying ingredient in e-liquid, and vegetable glycerin adds sweetness to the mix. There are varying ratios and strengths of both to suit your individual preferences. Whether you are new to vaping or looking to switch from smoking, you need to start by finding the best kit for you. Beginners should consider disposable vape pens, as they are easy to use and contain satisfying levels of nicotine.
E-Cigs are typically more expensive than vape kits, but they become cheaper over time. This is because e-cigs often contain more components than their vape counterparts, and they also require an initial purchase to get started. The first thing to consider is whether you want to use a pre-filled device or a refillable one. The initial cost of a pre-filled e-cig will be higher than a refillable one, but the savings from the e-juice will make up for this. In addition, vaping requires replacement coils, which will usually add to the overall cost of your vape. Depending on your nicotine consumption habits and the amount of e-juice you use, you should expect to spend anywhere from 30-60 dollars per month for coils and e-juice.
In addition to the traditional tobacco flavors, e-cigarettes and vape kits can also be found in a wide array of fruit, sweet, dessert and food flavors. A new Reuters review of retail sales data shows that the number of flavored disposable vaping devices on the market has surged, accounting for one-third of e-cigarette sales in the USA. These findings are in line with an increasing body of research suggesting that e-cigarette users prefer non-tobacco flavored products. Smokers initiate use with tobacco flavored e-cigarettes, but switch to exclusive or predominant use of non-tobacco flavored products over time.
