A few tips we wish we had received before purchasing our first kit...

It breaks our heart that many people were turned-off of vaping, only because they bought a poor quality kit or one that didn't fit their needs well.

  • We see this again and again. Getting a good quality kit that matches your needs and lifestyle is essential to being sucessful.
  • Knock-offs...buyer beware! Just cause it's called an eGo doesn't mean it will perform like a Genuine Joyetech eGo.
  • If it seems cheap, it probably is.
  • Happy Vaper is very particular about the products we carry. We only carry quality electronic cigarettes that perform!

Batteries, batteries, batteries!

  • Good quality kits contain regulated batteries which provide consistent performance from the beginning to the end of a charge, instead of getting weaker as you use them.
  • Battery size is a key consideration when choosing a kit. It determines:
    1. How long an ecig can go between charges.
    2. How large/small the device will be.
  • Your kit should make charging conveniently fit into your lifestyle. Do you need a long runtime? Do you need extra batteries, a second charger or a car adapter? Would it be helpful to charge it on-the-go with a Personal Charging Kit (PCC), so you always have one battery charging while you're using the other? It is important to have a simple plan for where and when you will charge your batteries. Walking around with an ecig that won't vape is VERY frustrating.
  • Certain kinds of accessories, like Low Resistance atomizers & cartomizers that provide a strong "throat hit", will wear down smaller batteries quickly.

I want it to taste like a cigarette.

  • Pretty much every vaper starts with this same desire. It never, ever lasts.
  • Once you've been vaping for a week or two, most people start to enjoy other flavours.
  • Many people continue to enjoy tobacco flavours. However, tobacco flavours are more like the smell of a newly opened pack of cigarettes or a bag of pipe tobacco, rather than a burning cigarette.
  • Many people find they really like fruit flavours like apple, blueberry and strawberry.
  • Others enjoy sweet, dessert flavours like a cinnamon danish.

Vaping (smoking electronic cigarettes) is not the same as smoking.

  • A bit of expertise from a pro can make a big difference.
