There is a vape to suit you – even if you’ve tried someone else’s and didn’t like it, with so many models, juices and strengths to try you absolutely can find the right one.
From cig-a-likes to pod kits, vape pens to box mods, nicotine free all the way up to 24mg e liquid and hundreds of flavours to choose from, vaping is incredibly customisable to every user. The key is knowing your smoking habits, then choosing the correct device, juice and nicotine strength to suit you.

After you stub out that last cigarette, it doesn’t take long to start noticing the difference.

As previously stated, if your nicotine strength is too high, you may experience various adverse effects from too much nicotine. Because e cigarettes are portable and simple to use anyplace (cloud filled living room, anyone? it’s possible to wind up vaping more than you smoked for a while.
