I’m new to vaping – How does it all work and what do I need?

Firstly, welcome to the world of vaping!

Generally people start off vaping by buying a complete kit. A good starter kit for someone new to vaping for example would be the Innokin Endura T-18. Later on down the line people will then often upgrade to more advanced kits and Sub Ohm Vaping.

Whichever kit you choose, it will often include a charger for the battery, a battery and tank to hold the liquid.

Inside the tank there will be a coil, which heats up the liquid creating vapour. These coils do eventually burn out depending on how often you vape and will need replaced. You’ll know when the coil needs replaced as you will either be able to taste a difference in the flavour of your liquid or it will eventually just stop creating vapour.

Liquid preference is down to personal choice. We suggest trying a few different flavours when you start out as they do all taste completely differently and it can take a few trials to find one you really like.

What ingredients are there in E-Liquids?

E-liquids are pretty simple in terms of their construction with 5 main ingridients:

Nicotine - E-Liquids contain varying amounts of nicotine. The maximum strength e-liquid currently allowed to be sold in the UK is 2.0% (20mg) whilst the lowest is 0% (0mg).

Flavourings - Self explanatory really, this is what differentiates your cherry pie from your doughnut.

Propylene Glycol - An ingredient that is often added to food and is used to carry the flavours.

Vegetable Glycerin - Again often used in foods, this is the ingridient which helps produce visible vapour. Higher VG liquids are generally used by sub ohm vapers who enjoy producing big clouds 

Water - Yep, good old H20 is also found in many liquids.

Im new to vaping and not sure what flavour eliquid to choose. Help!

We know your dilemma. With so many flavours on the market, where do you start?

Many people when switching from smoking cigarettes choose a tobacco based flavour to mimic the taste of normal cigarettes. It's quite common though for people to quickly move on to more exotic flavours. Menthol is also quite a popular starting point.

Our advice is to have a browse and give some consideration to your favourite flavours. Ejuices differ from brand to brand so it's always a good idea to try a few to find the one you like best. For example a strawberry flavour from one eliquid manufacturer will likely have a slightly different taste to a strawberry flavour from another.

Give a few a try.

How long will a 10ml bottle of eliquid last?

3 - 7 Days.

This is a tough question because it really does depend on how much you vape. Heavy vapers are obviously going to use more liquid than lighter vapers, but generally speaking we find most people will consume a bottle within 3 - 7 days. There are obviously always exceptions to this as its not an exact science.


What is the TPD?

The 'TPD' (Tobacco Products Directive) is a piece of legislation which has been implemented across Europe including the UK to regulate tobacco products. Vaping products are currently being classified in the same group as tobacco products and are therefore subject to TPD enforcement.

Ok so what does this all mean for me?

The current TPD legislation in regard to vaping products came into full affect in the UK on the 20th May 2017.

These rules mean that:

  • The sale of E-Liquids in bottles greater than 10ml is prohibited.
  • The total nictine content in an E-Liquid cannot exceed 20mg/ml.
  • Vaping Tanks sold in the UK cannot exceed 2ml in capacity.
  • All E-Liquids must go through and pass analytical testing.
  • All Vaping Kits and devices sold must be tested to ensure a consistent delivery of nictotine.
Whilst some of these rules are frustrating for many vapers (for example having to refill tanks more often), some, in our opinion are actually good for the industry.  Particularly the rule on E-Liquids having to go through laboratory testing to ensure their safety can only be a positive thing and allows the end consumer (you!) to be safe in the knowledge that the liquids you are buying are of the highest quality. 
    Are all the products on Ignite Vaping TPD compliant?

    Quite simply yes!

    At Ignite Vaping are committed to selling only top quality products and fully abide by the TPD legislation. We would never knowingly sell a non-TPD compliant product and work closely with all of our suppliers to ensure this doesn't happen.
