Vape guide for the Newbies

Well firstly, hello to the world of vaping, you’re going to love it. We understand that when you’re new to vaping everything seem confusing.

Tanks, coils, sub-ohm, clearomizers, mods, and juice these words don’t have the same old meaning in this industry. There’s a big chance that because you feel like you know nothing, you want to quit being a part of it.

We don’t want you to end this fun ride before even starting it. So, in this article, we are going to discuss all the things that a newbie needs to know to stay in this fast-growing world of vaping. Now, we are going to help you learn.

How Does Vape Work?

This is the thought that comes to a newbie’s mind before any other and it’s very much valid because knowing nothing makes you ask these questions.

The question is pretty simple but the answer is not. The brief answer to this question is that the tank of a vaping device holds the e-liquid that you like and the cotton wicks inside absorb the juice.

Now when you turn on your device, the coil in the tank heats up and that heat causes the juice to evaporate, and you inhale the vapours.

Let’s have a look at the more in-depth so the working depends on a variety of different aspects such as:

  • The type of device
  • What tank your device is outfitted with
  • The type of coils

Let’s talk about these, one by one.

The Vape device:

An e-cigarette or a similar easy to use the device is used at first. An e-cigarette or a vape pen are very easy to use devices. These have simple systems that convert your e liquids to vapour. Now we have many different types of e-cigarettes, vape pens and vape pods.

The device consists of:

  • The Atomizer: Which further has 3 types the clearomizer, glassomizer, and cartomizer.
  • The battery: A battery is responsible to provide the power needed for the device to heat up.
  • A mouth-piece: From which we inhale the vapours.
  • A charger: To charge the battery for more use.

The battery is what powers the device, it is the longest part of your device. Then comes the atomizer, this is where your e-liquids are placed to be heated until they produce vapour. This part is attached to the battery. Then comes the mouthpiece, this is the part that you draw the vapour from and attaches to the heating chamber. The charger comes separate from the pen itself, this is usually a micro USB and is used to charge your vape pen’s battery.

Vape Tanks:

Before deciding the tank, we need to know what a tank is, so the tank is the part that holds the wick, the heating coil, and the e-juice.

The Tank is commonly known to be the most important part of your device. While looking for a tank you are going to find many different to choose from but they all function in the same way.

They hold the e-juice you love and then feed that juice either by cotton or wick to the coil which heats the juice to the point of vapour.

For a newbie, a tank choice will always be completely based on a tank that has more volume than anything else. Nowadays, the most popular ones are the glass sub-ohm vape tanks.

The reason is that they last longer and save you money because a plastic tank needs replacement once it starts to break-down.

Vape Coils:

Tanks and coils are both necessary for each other. Like we have read above that tanks have different variation now when we’re talking about coils, it is pretty much the same. Coils come in a variety of types from stainless steel to ceramic.

The coil’s life runs out over time and then it needs to be replaced or otherwise there will be dry hit, flavour imbalance and other issues.

Replacing coils especially in this time is not hard, but it’s more of a personal choice that how you want to replace them. Some experienced vapers desire to use rebuildable coils that they make themselves. Others prefer buying new coils and exchange them out when necessary because that’s time-saving and convenient.

When the amount and taste of the vapour aren’t the same as it was when you started using it. My friend, its time to change the coil. Most coils are replaced by the plug and play action and some are the ones you need to screw on.


We have covered the basics of what information you need to know in the start. Obviously, there’s so much more to the industry and what you need to know about it. As a newbie this much information is perfect to give you a good start to vaping and to help you not feel uncomfortable in this world of vaping.
