Beginner’s Guide to Getting Started with Electronic Cigarettes

Getting started with E-cigs can be mind-boggling and overwhelming, to say the least. There are literally hundreds (if not thousands) of different starter kits out there, as well as dozens of different companies all competing for your attention.

So how do you even get started? How do you know what you will need and what you should buy?

These are the same questions that everyone else asks when they first start vaping – so you can take comfort in the fact that you are on the right track. In this post, we’re going to attempt to give you an easy, step-by-step guide that you can use to get started with electronic cigarettes. Whether you’re looking for a healthier alternative to cigarettes or are simply looking to save money on a different nicotine habit, E-cigs have a lot to offer any user.

 Step 1: Try a disposable model first (Optional)

This is an optional first step that some users might be more comfortable with. A lot of E-cig companies actually offer disposable electronic cigarettes in a variety of different flavours. Buying a disposable can be a very cost-effective method for trying out the company’s product without committing to an entire starter kit.

If you are wondering which E-cig companies actually offer the best deals on disposable E-cigs, you can visit our disposables review page here https://ecigsuk.org.uk/disposable-e-cigs/. That will give you an excellent platform to get started with.

 Step 2: Order a starter kit

If you believe that you’re ready to commit to ordering an entire starter kit, then you will have many fantastic options to choose from. When ordering, however, make sure that you are getting at least a few basic elements. You will need…

  • A battery
  • One or more cartomizers or an atomizer and at least one refill cartridge
  • A charger

If you are more interested in a cig-a-like type electronic cigarette that looks, feels, and performs almost exactly like an analog cigarette, then you should visit our starter kit review page here https://ecigsuk.org.uk/best-e-cigarette-starter-kits/.

Some people might say that you should go right to an Ego style E-cig, for a number of different reasons. For one, Ego-style E-cigs do not require you to buy refill cartridges. You can simply buy clearomizers or tankomizers and refill them with E-liquid.

They also tend to offer a more ‘customizable’ vaping experience, because you can buy E-liquid in almost any flavour imaginable.

 Step 3: See how you like it

Try it out for a little while to get the hang of it

The next step is just to try your new product and to see how you like it. Some people come to find that switching to E-cigs from analogs is difficult, while some people love the transition and swear that they will never go back.

One that that may be important to keep in mind, however, is the fact that not all starter kits are going to be for you. In other words, you might end up hating cig-a-like kits, but loving Egos. You might end up hating having to deal with E-liquid and come to realize that using pre-filled cartomizers is much better for you.

The bottom line here is that it is going to take some trial and error to figure out what you do and don’t like in regards to your E-cig habit. Don’t give up if you suffer a negative experience in the beginning! Some people order starter kits and end up not liking them, only to get it right on their second attempt and successfully switch full-time to vaping from smoking.


If you’re a smoker who wants to switch to vaping, then congratulations on making an effort to do so! By even reading this blog, you are investing time and energy into your life that will result in better overall health and well-being should you follow through with the switch—and for that, you deserve definite kudos!

Vaping is cleaner, healthier, more affordable, and less dangerous for those around you. Basically everyone agrees that vaping is better for your overall health and fitness than smoking—even doctors and health experts.

In the end, try not to get overwhelmed by all of the different options. Take comfort in knowing that, as an introductory vaper, you are probably going to be able to find usefulness in almost any kit you buy.

Your first kit probably won’t be your last, and you will learn a ton about the process by going through the motions the first time. This will equip you to make an even better decision next time, and will set you up for a truly successful future with vaping.
