Babby's first e-cig
How it werks: the battery heats up a coil, typically kanthal wire, to vaporize the liquid surrounding it. The liquid is commonly held in a silica, cotton, or steel mesh wick.
What you need: a battery, a charger, an atomizer, and some e-liquid.
- Ego-c twist
- Kanger Protank
- 510 Charger
- Vamo VV Mod
- Several 18650 or 18350 batteries
- Kanger Protank
- Requires needle-tippled bottle heads for easiy fills of tank
E-liquid, or e-juice, is made up of two main ingredients: Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG), as well as artificial flavorings. Some specialty liquids may also contain distilled water as a main ingredient.
PG is a low viscosity liquid and has many applications ranging from the suspension agent used in some inhalers, to an ingredient in FDA approved oral and topical medications, as well as a preservative in food and tobacco products. VG is a high viscosity liquid organic compound with applications ranging from use as a sweetener in foods, medications, soaps, and cosmetics.
As PG is a humectant it is common to have a sore throat and cough when you first start vaping. If similar symptoms persist or become more severe e.g. sore or swollen mouth, face, gums, and/or back of throat, you should consider switching to a 100% VG concentration as you may be allergic or sensitive to PG.
The percentage of PG/VG is commonly 50/50, but what works best for you depends on your e-cigarette itself, personal preference, and their vaping properties. 100% VG puts out a lot of vapor, produces little to no throat hit, but mutes the flavor while 100% PG is the opposite. VG also has a relatively high resistance to the heat most atomizers put out, while a higher PG concentration might taste burnt at the same wattage.
Flavor is subjective and boils down to personal taste: general e-liquid recommendations are hard and established preferences might not apply to e-liquid flavors e.g. one might prefer menthol cigarettes but dislike menthol e-liquid while preferring "tobacco" or coffee flavors. Your tastes will most likely change after you've quit smoking, or you might grow tired of a certain flavor, so it's recommended that you have several or more different preferred e-liquids. Mixtures and bases also vary among vendors so you may find that you prefer a fruit flavor from a certain vendor over others.
Only buy US or EU e-liquids, stay clear of Dekang shit. WESTERN WORLD STRONK.
Israeli liquids may also be acceptable.
- Kanger Protank
- v2 seems to be shit, leaks, some have had success replacing original base with aerotank base. mini seems unaffected.
- Kanger T3S
- Similar and cheaper than the protank, uses the same atomizer as the protank. Kind of iffy depending on the e-liquid. If it's too thick it won't draw into the wick and you'll get a burnt taste, too loose and it'll leak through to the battery. A mixed 50/50 liquid is preferred.
