Elevating Your Vaping Experience: Everything You Need to Know

Elevating Your Vaping Experience: Everything You Need to Know

By Timothy Bates

Explore the essentials of vaping, from selecting the right device to choosing the perfect vape liquid to elevate your vaping experience. 

Vaping Devices

Get the most out of your vaping experience by exploring all the different types of vape devices out there, including:


A Cigalike e-cigarette is a type of vape device that closely resembles a traditional cigarette in appearance and sensation. Cigalikes from the OK Cigalike range are specifically designed to mimic the look and feel of a tobacco cigarette, complete with a rechargeable battery and replaceable cartomiser. These e-cigs are compact, lightweight, and easy to operate, featuring a rechargeable battery and interchangeable 'refills' or cartomisers. Simply charge the battery using the provided USB charger, attach a refill, and you're all set to start vaping.

Vape Pens

Vape pen kits are devices designed with a slim and sleek look, housing a battery and a tank or clearomiser for holding vape liquid. They offer versatility for both Mouth-To-Lung (MTL) and Direct-To-Lung (DTL) vaping, depending on the model and settings. While pod kits are more convenient and generally cheaper, vape pens present more opportunities for customisation. 

Pod Devices

Vape pod kits are typically smaller and more compact compared to vape pens. They come with a rechargeable built-in battery and pre-filled pod systems that can be easily replaced when the liquid runs out. For example, the major difference between the new Blu 2.0 device and its sister, the Blu vape pen, is the magnetic lock inside that securely holds the vape pods, allowing you to switch flavours in seconds. Similarly, the Liberty Flights Dot Pro starter kit holds vape pods that are designed to slide in with ease. These convenient pod systems are typically used for MTL (Mouth-to-Lung) vaping, making them a popular choice for former smokers looking for a similar experience to traditional cigarettes. 

Coils & Accessories 

Vape devices require the right coils and accessories to produce the best taste and vapour. 


The coil in a vape pen is the element that heats the vape liquid to produce vapour. Over time, coils can become clogged with vape liquid residue or the wicking material can degrade, leading to a burnt taste or reduced vapour production. Coils could do with a replacement every 1 to 4 weeks depending on your vape usage. 


While they don’t need replacing as often as coils, you could do with a new clearomiser from time to time. If cleaned regularly, clearomisers can last a lot longer, depending on the material quality. A Blu Pro Clearomiser Tank will only need replacing after 10 refills and can be bought in bulk from the Vape2Stop online vape store. 

Vape Liquids 

To avoid the dreaded “vaper’s tongue”, vapers tend to switch up their liquid flavours now and then. Vaper’s tongue is when you have a loss of taste after vaping the same flavours all the time. It’s nothing serious, but becoming desensitised to taste and smell can be quite frustrating. Loss of taste can be easily avoided, especially if you also like to change up your PG/VG (Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin) ratio and experiment with different brands. 


Vape liquid flavours don’t just stop at fruit and menthol. While we recommend the classics such as cherry and blueberry, you’d be missing out if you didn’t also try Mint Chocolate from Blu, Mojito from Moja, or Cherry Bomb from Cirro.

PG/VG Ratio

 Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG) are the base ingredients in vape liquids. PG provides more flavour and a stronger throat hit, while VG produces thicker clouds. 

Nicotine Strength

Vape liquids come in various nicotine strengths, measured in milligrams per millilitre (mg/mL). If you are transitioning from smoking, you might start with a higher nicotine concentration and gradually reduce the strength if your goal is to lessen nicotine dependency.
