In order to help our customers with issues that might occur with vape kits and tanks, or even questions about e-liquids and CBD e-liquids we’ve compiled a small FAQ to avoid further problems and frustration. Remember if you are ever in doubt, just contact us, we are always happy to help!

We offer a variety of starter vape kits here at Vape Slough and ideally your first vape kit should be one that is simple to use and that you’re comfortable with using.

A closed pod system, such as the JUUL Starter Kit or Vuse ePod 2 Device Kit are ideal, you simply charge the device, pop in a pod and you can start vaping straight away. Once the e-liquid inside the pod has been used, you simply dispose of the pod and replace with a new one.

Alternatively, you can use Oxva Xlim, Vaporesso Xros 3 or Elf Bar Mate 500.
Vape kits consist of three parts:

• An atomiser or coil

• The e-liquid container known by names such as ‘tank’, ‘clearomizer’ or ‘pod.

• The battery

The atomiser, also known as a coil, consists of a metal coil with cotton surrounded. The e-liquid soaks into this cotton, the battery sends a charge to the metal coil which produces heat, the e-liquid evaporates creating vapour which is then inhaled by the user.

The wool within an atomiser only lasts a period of time, which is dependant on use, so must be replaced when it begins to taste burnt.
The strength you should go for it dependant on how many cigarettes you where smoking prior; if you have never smoked we highly recommend you do not use a vape with nicotine, or vape at all.

• Smokes a few cigarettes, or not every day: 0mg - 3mg

• 5-10 cigarettes a day: 6mg

• 10-20 cigarettes a day: 10mg - 20mg

• 20+ cigarettes a day: 18mg - 20mg
Nicotine salts are e-liquids that use nic salt instead of freebase nicotine. Nicotine salt originates from the tobacco plant, has a much weaker throat hit and your body absorbs this much faster, reducing cravings faster.
This is all dependant on which device you have. If your device is classified as ‘Subohm’, which means the atomizer/coil resistance is a 0.9 ohm resistance reading or less then you need an e-liquid with a high VG content, preferably with 60VG or more.

Most starter kits, such as vape pens or vape pods, need an e-liquid with a PG content of 50 or higher, such as 50/50 e-liquids which are usually in 10ml bottles.

All of our e-liquids have the VG/PG ratio listed in the product description so you can purchase the correct e-liquid for your device with ease.
The cost varies from brand to brand and how often you are using your vape kit. The more the device is used the more atomisers/pods/e-liquids you will need to replace.
Vaping is not completely risk free, though it may be easier to quantify the risks by comparing it to the dangers of smoking traditional cigarettes. According to PHE, vaping devices are 95% less harmful than cigarettes2. One of the main reasons for this is the lack of harmful chemicals that are prevalent in e-cigarettes.
By making the switch from vaping to smoking, not only are you saving your health, but also your money. To break this saving down: if you smoke a packet of day, in a year you will save £3285 if you decide to vape instead. That's a massive 86% saving!
Simply put, there’s no good evidence that e-cigarettes can cause popcorn lung. Due to unfounded media reports, this is one of the most commonly asked health concerns around vaping, so it will help to know a little about the condition first. ‘Popcorn lung’, or bronchiolitis obliterans, is a condition that was first noted in workers at a popcorn factory. The condition arose from very high exposure to a chemical called diacetyl. In the UK, diacetyl was banned in e-liquids in 2016, so any eliquids that are bought in the UK should not contain it.
E-liquids can change colour when the nicotine they contain reacts with oxygen. This process is called oxidation and is harmless; some e-liquid brands sometimes even encourage it for better flavour! However, if your e-liquid has changed colour and you are concerned, it is always best to check the best-before date on your packaging.
