WHAT SHOULD I BUY FOR A SMOKER OR VAPER?
A CHRISTMAS VAPE GIFT GUIDE
Vape Gifts for Smokers & New Vapers
When you’re buying a vape kit for a smoker who hasn’t vaped before (or doesn’t have much experience) there’s a few things to bear in mind.
It’s advisable to use a device that gives a similar experience to a cigarette.
Cigarettes have a tight draw that is quite different to some of the bigger “cloud machines” you’ll see in use.
For new vapers, it’s a good idea to choose a device that is easy to use.
As vapers gain more experience, some will gravitate to devices that need more technical expertise, but starter kits allow you to walk before you start running!
It’s usually a good idea to choose e-liquid which has a higher nicotine concentration, such as 1.8% or 1.2%.
This means vaping will better help alleviate nicotine cravings. Low nicotine strengths often lead to people vaping more in an attempt to fulfill nicotine cravings.
The simplest device available is a cigalike, which looks very similar to a cigarette. To use you just inhale, and the device does the rest - making it perfect for technophobes! Most people, however, choose to go for something that looks a bit different from a cigarette and gives the option to use different e-liquids.
One great option for new vapers are starter kits.
These are super simple to use, but improvements in technology means they produce enough vapour to satisfy most smoker’s cravings for nicotine.
Suggested E-Cig Kits for New Vapers
Great Vape, Easy to Use
The Hexa V2.0 is currently our favourite closed pod system.
The closed pod means it comes with disposable pods, which makes it great for someone who wants to start vaping without the faff of fussing around with refilling devices. But what we love about it is the draw on it, which is closer to the experience of a real cigarette than other devices we have tried.
Uwell Caliburn G
In contrast to the Hexa V.2, this is an open system. This means you can use the device with a vast variety of e-liquids.
The Caliburn G has also gained a reputation as being the best pod system for flavours, so it’s a great choice for people who really care about taste.
Staff Favourite, Comes with Free E-Liquid
The Aspire Pockex may be slightly older technology, but it retains huge popularity amongst vapers, both new and experienced. In fact, it’s also used by many of our staff.
This is a reliable device which produces an excellent vape.
Tip - it’s well worth purchasing a vape band (£1.00) to provide extra protection for the tank.
Gifts for Vapers & Experienced Vapers
Existing vapers very broadly fall into two groups. One group, known as cloud chasers, likes using large devices and blowing huge clouds of vapour, while the other group are happy to use smaller, more discrete devices.
Christmas Gift for Cloud Chasers
Vaporesso Gen X
The Vaporesso Gen X is created from aircraft grade aluminium which has gone through a cold forging process and precision CNC manufacturing to create a device which is strong, light and long lasting.The device provides up to 220 watts of power for massive clouds of vapour, and is powered by two 18650 batteries (not included) for an impressive battery capacity.
The Gen X comes with the option of DIY mode which will satisfy experienced users who like total control over their device, but also comes with easier modes for less techy vapers.
Voopoo Drag Max
The Voopoo Drag Max combines the compact design of a pod system with the power of a mod, with two 18650 batteries providing up to 170 watts of power. The body of the device fuses metal and leather for a striking design which is resistant to scratches and is comfortable to hold.
The device comes with a choice of modes, which includes RBA mode, making it suitable for advanced vapers who prefer to build their own coils.
Vaping Accessories and Stocking Fillers
Looking for some accessories to go with vapes, or for the vaper who is already satisfied with their kits? The K-Bag is a great idea for organising vape supplies while the Pebble Power Bank ensures they will never run out of power again!
E-Liquid Christmas Gifts
One thing every vaper needs is e-liquid. This short guide will help you choose...
Best for Clouds
For cloud chasers, you’ll want larger bottles of e-liquid (known as short fills). These don’t contain any nicotine, but are used with a seperate nicotine shot - but don’t worry, on E-Cigarette Direct you get a free nicotine shot with every short fill.
For a festive e-liquid option, why not try Christmas Cake e-liquid from Cotton & Cable?
If you can find out exactly what tank your family member or friend is using, a great idea for stocking fillers are coils. These are an essential part of the tank, but need to be changed every few weeks.
