If you’re transitioning, or planning to transition, from traditional cigarettes to a vape device, one of the first differences you’ll notice is the inhale. More often than not, when someone tries inhaling off a vape for the first time, they will try to use their device the same way they’ve used a cigarette. Depending on which style of vaping device they’re using this could lead to a very uncomfortable or unenjoyable experience, especially if they are using a high-powered sub-ohm vape that produces a large, dense cloud of vapor.

To get the most out of your vape, the first step is to know how to properly inhale the vapor based on the style of device you are using. In this article we will go over the different styles of vape devices and how to properly inhale off them. Let’s get started.

Don’t bite off more than you can chew

If you’ve never used a vape before, your best route to success starts with a simple, easy to use device that doesn’t require a lot of previous knowledge. While it may seem tempting to jump right into variable wattage and large, powerful box mods, you’re going to have a better experience starting your vaping journey with a smaller, easy to use device that won’t leave you with a bad taste in your mouth. Be it metaphorically or literally.

Beginner Starter Kits

As vaping has become more of a mainstream alternative to cigarettes, more and more easy to use and portable devices have hit the market and since surpassed sub-ohm vape kits in popularity and preference of the average vape user. Some of these devices hit extremely similar to their larger counterparts and are often more affordable. The devices we cover here focus more on ease-of-use, portability and efficiency.

Open-Pod Style Vapes – These devices are noted for their refillable pod-style cartridges. Most are draw-activated, with no buttons, screens or setting to worry about. That being said, there are also pod-style devices that feature many similarities to sub-ohm vape kits such as adjustable wattage, OLED displays, and more. These devices typically have a more open air-flow and higher power, offering the user a large, dense cloud, full of flavour. This style of device will benefit you most if you’re comfortable filling your device and enjoy a stronger hit of nicotine.
