Electronic cigarettes can be a tricky thing. Countless e-smokers experienced vaping for the first time with a low quality device they picked up from a questionable brand. This can be a rather unfortunate circumstance, as low-end e-cigarettes, with less than spectacular nicotine levels and quality can cause users to write them off altogether, assuming all brands will result in the same experience. And on the same note, many smokers are reluctant in trying e-cigarettes because they fear they will not enjoy them, thinking there is no way something electronic is going to produce the same feeling as burning tobacco.
Satisfaction with electronic cigarettes can be yours, however, even if you’ve been been burned by a bad experience. It just comes down to knowing the products, and knowing how to choose e-cigarette products that are compatible with your usage.
How Do E-Cigs Compare to Tobacco Cigarettes?
E-cigarettes and traditional cigarettes obviously have their differences. They do not feel exactly the same, however with any better brand of e-cigs, you’ll find that a great amount of care was spent creating quality products that satisfy the smokers’ desires. E-cigarettes compare very well to traditional cigarettes, and many users become very used to their many modern conveniences and attributes that completely outdo traditional cigarettes. Having the freedom to use them nearly anywhere because they release no smell or smoke offers a new sense of freedom. Being able to charge them as opposed to using lighters and burning tobacco is much cleaner, and much simpler.
What About Nicotine?
Nicotine strength is one of the magical little components that really makes a difference when enjoying your e-smoking. Not choosing the right level can really make for a very unsatisfying experience, and can be one of the key factors that determines your particular success rate with e-cigarettes. A general rule of thumb is to match your cigarette type with nicotine level. For example, if you are used to reds, 18mg cartridges will probably be a good fit. If you use a lower level, you may not be as satisfied with a stronger level. Here is a look at how nicotine levels compare to cigarette strengths:
24mg = unfiltered cigarettes and the strongest filtered cigarettes available.
18mg = reds, standard strength cigarettes
12mg = lights
6mg = ultra lights
0mg = non-nicotine/ nicotine-free
Electronic smoking reproduces the essence of smoking traditional cigarettes, in a cleaner, more efficient manner. They may be confusing at first, but with the right products, knowledge and understanding, you can enjoy vaping with total satisfaction!
