Do you smoke more than 20 cigarettes a day? You are then part of the category of heavy smokers. If you have decided to do away with tobacco and want to use vaping as a substitute, you will need to find suitable equipment!
“I smoke a lot, even excessively, and I want a powerful e-cigarette”… Many of us said this sentence the first time we walked through the door of a physical shop wherever we contacted to any Vape service.
It is indeed frequent that a former smoker asks us so we can accompany him and determine with him the type of electronic cigarette that could suit him. Several selection criteria must be taken into account.
ON WHAT CRITERIA SHOULD I BASE MYSELF TO CHOOSE AN ELECTRONIC CIGARETTE ADAPTED TO MY NEEDS AS A HEAVY SMOKER?
Battery life is one of the first selection criteria to take into account when you start vaping and you were previously a heavy smoker. The goal is for you to quit smoking, not for you to fall back into the cigarette trap when your vape has run out of battery! So you need durable equipment that can last a day without you needing to recharge it. Not only the capacity of the battery will determine the time of use, but it will also have an impact on the power sent by the electronic cigarette. You have the choice between a battery integrated directly into the electronic cigarette, which involves replacing your equipment when it is too worn,
The capacity of the tank
The capacity of the tank also contributes to the autonomy of your electronic cigarette. As for the battery, it is not a question of being in lack of e-liquid! You can certainly choose to take your favourite e-liquid everywhere with you, but you can also choose to go for a clearomiser with a capacity of around 4ml if you don’t want to fill your tank too often!
The rate of PG / VG that the clearomizer can support
New vapers and more specifically former heavy smokers want to rediscover sensations similar to those brought by cigarettes. The hit, for example, perfectly mimics the tingle in the throat of the tobacco cigarette. This sensation depends on the nicotine level of the liquid used but also on its composition. The higher the percentage of propylene glycol, the more pronounced the hit will be. Heavy smokers are generally advised to use an e-liquid composed of at least 50% PG. Each of our product sheets will allow you to easily find the composition of the e-liquid you want and leave the world of smokers behind. On the other hand, propylene glycol brings a certain fluidity to the liquid, it will be necessary to choose a clearomizer and resistors that accept a high rate of PG to avoid possible leaks. Here too, our product sheets will be of great help to you and you will be able to retain the liquid with the right PG/VG rate and the right nicotine dosage!
WHAT IS THE BEST ELECTRONIC CIGARETTE FOR A HEAVY SMOKER?
There is no doubt that if you want to meet all the criteria mentioned above, you will have to choose a kit with a box and a clearomizer which will offer you less vapour and allow you to stop the traditional cigarette. You will find our selection directly on this page. Although very practical and powerful, the pods are still somewhat limited for heavy smoker use. Note however that their technology is progressing, and that this limit will certainly be exceeded very soon…
