Which Starter Vape Should I Chose?
We do our best to align the correct device to the person. Everyone is different, have different habits, ability, needs, methods of inhaling, and like different flavours.
Method of Inhaling (The two types of vaping):
A great way to find which type of device is for you, is to establish how you currently inhale:
Mouth to Lung (MTL): When you inhale a tar based cigarette, do you hold the smoke in your mouth and then pull it down to your lungs? If so, this aligns you to the most common new to vaping method, known as Mouth-to-Lung (MTL) vaping, using thinner viscosity “50/50” E-Liquid which is vaporized in smaller units with a weaker heating element (Coil/ Cartridge).
**All devices on this New To Vaping page can work as a MTL device.
Direct Lung Vaping (DL): If you draw your combustion cigarette smoke directly to your lungs, we have found through direct client assistance, that 95% go straight to an intermediate vape, selecting a Direct Lung vaping configuration. Direct Lung vaping uses a more powerful heating element (sub ohm coil), producing more flavour and more vapour, with less than half the nicotine level in the E-Liquid compared to the MTL method. The thicker viscosity, plant based VG Heavy E-Liquid is used for Direct-Lung-Vaping.
**The Kangertech CUPTI is Captain Vapour’s No.1 Direct Lung Starter vape. Our TOGO Mini can run with Direct Lung coils, but we find drives this compact device to its limits with constant use.
Which E-Liquid Should I Chose for the Starter Vapes?
If you are attempting to migrate to vaping, we recommend replicating as many factors that you are acquainted with to your new vaporizer. If you have never tried flavoured vaping before, client experience shows to start with a Tobacco E-Liquid flavour.
