So you’re a new vaper, just starting to get your feet wet. Everything is new, and from the vape pens to the vape pods, there's so much to choose from. Maybe it’s the option of choosing the best vape pen for you, or perhaps it's deciding which flavour e-liquid to try out first that piqued your curiosity. Or you may be wondering what nicotine strength, if any, you want to vape. It could also be the new experience of vaping or simply discovering a new technology - either way, there is a lot to wrap your head around. No doubt, you’re likely to have a lot of questions and that’s completely normal - no one starts out knowing exactly how to get their best vape experience without some time and practice. In order to help, we present to you our beginner’s guide to vaping.

Before you start

One of the first things to think about as a beginner vaper is which e-liquid flavour to start with. Many people opt to start with a tobacco flavour. At Vuse, we offer different kinds of tobacco flavours in our vape pods, but also a variety of other flavour pods from tropical fruits to cool mint and flavour free, depending on your preference.

Buying your first vaping device

When you buy your first vape pen you’re buying a new piece of technology. Naturally, some people are intimidated by the prospect of buying their first device - it can feel like there’s a lot of unfamiliar components and terms to deal with. Just take it easy, do some research and choose the best vape pen for you - we hope you choose a Vuse ePod!

Your first few vapes

If you’ve never used a vape until now, don’t worry. It’s actually not that different than smoking, although you may find the sensorial aspect of it to be a little surprising. Vapour feels lighter in the mouth than smoke and can be a little more irritating, but it will give a unique flavour experience. Start by taking smaller, shorter, faster puffs with at least a 20 second internal in order to get used to the sensation of vaping. These will be more diluted with air and therefore give you a smoother experience.

Your first day with a vape pen

One of the main features of a vaping device is that they are battery operated. The first time you go out with your vape pen device you may ask yourself:

How long will the battery last?

On your first day with a vape pen device you’re not yet accustomed to gauging how much battery life you’ve used. A fully charged ePod will last a full day, based on typical usage. You don’t want to find that it runs out of charge while you’re on the move, so it’s a good idea to carry your USB charging cable with you.

How long will the e-liquid last?

This totally depends on you and how much you vape, so use your first few days to gage your daily use. The ePod device offers about 250 puffs per pod. So start by keeping an eye on the level of e-liquid in your vape pod to ensure you don’t vape on an empty pod (which would be unpleasant). Then track how many days go by between having to replace your vape pods to get the most accurate read on your e-liquid consumption.

After you've finished the first batch of e-liquid, you might want to experiment with different flavours - at Vuse we offer a large range of e-liquid vape pods for ePod in different flavours in 1.6%, and we even include vape pod flavours with no nicotine at all (0% strength), if that's your jam.


If you haven’t already tried Vuse’s ePod device or checked out our incredible range of flavours, we offer a starter bundle to get you started. Choose your device colour and a pack of pods of your choice and you're good to go.
