When you first start vaping, you want things to be as easy and convenient as possible.
The vast majority of beginner vapers will be taking up vaping as a way to help them quit smoking. Quitting smoking is a challenging endeavour, so ensuring your vape is simple and enjoyable to use is a good idea, as it can make all the difference in whether your stop-smoking attempt is successful or not.
As a newbie to the world of vaping, as you focus on living without cigarettes, you will probably be less interested in vapes that come with bells and whistles. It’s unlikely you’ll be cloud chasing and doing vapour tricks from day one – these things can all come later, once you’re more confident with vaping.
Instead, to help you get started with vaping, we’re sharing some of the best vapes you can try as a beginner.
nzo Vape Kit
The nzo Vape is a fantastic option for beginners, as it is one of the simplest vape devices on the market.
As a closed pod device, pre-filled pods of E-Liquid are slotted into the top of the vape device. With the press of a button, you can be vaping in seconds!
You don’t need to worry about knowing how to refill nzo E-Liquid tanks or change coils; everything is done for you in the pods. All you need to do is choose a flavour and slot the pod into place.
The pods come in a range of flavour options, and to get you started, this kit contains three pods in the flavours Blackcurrant Lemonade, Silver Tobacco and Menthol.
Smok Mico Kit
The Smok Mico Kit is a vape device that we recommend to beginners. It is a pod device, which is small and simple to use.
Pods are enjoyed by new and experienced vapers alike, so this is one you may continue to use as an on-the-go vape even as you become more advanced in your vaping!
This pod is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, so if you’re after discretion from your vape, then this would be a fantastic choice.
The size also makes it pocket-friendly, with its long-lasting material and durable design allowing you to safely carry it around with you.
The device is turned on and off with a simple switch on the side. The kit also features a light that changes from green, to orange to red to indicate the battery life.
The MICO uses MICO Pods, which come in three resistance options - 0.8ohm, 1ohm and 1.4ohm. The lower the resistance (ohm), the bigger the vapour cloud produced.
The pods can hold 1.7ml of E-Liquid and are filled via a rubber plug on the side of the pod. When filled, the pod is simply slotted into the top of the MICO kit and acts as the mouthpiece.
A bonus of this device is its stylish design, which is available in a range of colours, including green, red, prism chrome, prism gold, prism rainbow and prism blue!
Joyetech - eGo AIO
If you would rather try a pen-style vape device, then the Joyetech eGO AIO is a fantastic option for beginners. It is described as an ‘all-in-one’ device and has many features that make it suitable for new vapers.
One of the highlights is the leak-resistant tank. A big problem with this kind of vape device is that some tanks are prone to leaking. The fact it is leak-resistant means you have one less thing to worry about with your vape!
The device supports a variety of atomiser heads at different resistances, meaning that you can change the resistance to suit your preference. This means that the eGO AIO can be adapted to suit both mouth-to-lung and direct-to-lung styles of vaping, depending on which way you prefer.
Vaporesso - Nexus Kit
Another great starter device, the Nexus all-in-one kit is a pod device that offers a compact design and customisable features.
While other beginner devices keep things as simple as possible, the Nexus is a good choice for those who want to have a bit more control over their vape experience while still having an easy-to-use device.
The Nexus offers an adjustable airflow and requires you to change your own coil. There will be a coil pre-installed in the device when you first receive it though, so you won’t have to worry about that straight away!
The Vaporesso Nexus can be used with nicotine salts as well as freebase E-Liquid. This makes it a great choice for those who are heavy smokers, as nic salts are absorbed faster, giving you a quicker and more satisfying nicotine hit that can sate your cravings.
Nic salts also tend to work better at higher strengths, with less of a harsh throat hit than freebase E-Liquids. An unpleasant throat hit can be offputting for those switching to vaping, so if you want to use higher strength E-Liquids, it might be worth trying a vape device like the Vaporesso Nexus and using it with nicotine salts.
The Vaporesso Nexus also comes in a variety of colours, including silver, purple, orange, maroon, green, blue and black, allowing you to choose a device that matches your style.
