As the popularity of vaping and e-cigarettes continues to rise and reach the mainstream public, this presents an opportunity for smokers who have been looking to quit their addiction to cigarettes.
Making the jump from smoking to Vaping
For many smokers, making the jump from smoking to vaping can be a daunting task since you have to learn how to operate a temperature controlled device along with knowing how to troubleshoot a device such as making sure to prime the coils, cleaning out the tank, make sure the tank does not leak, adjust the temperature setting for the coil, making sure to charge the batteries beforehand, and the list goes on and on. While compared to smoking, where you just go down to your local store and buy a pack of cigarettes, light up the cigarette and bam, you are getting your daily smoke or nicotine.
But…deep down you still wish there was an easy way to leave smoking and go to vaping because of all the studies showing that vaping is a much healthier alternative. Well, there may still be hope.
Enter Pod devices and Salt based nicotine
For the past 5 or 6 years, the vaping industry had primarily been targeting a niche audience that just wanted to have fun blowing large clouds of nicotine using their sub ohm devices along with powerful mods and batteries. Blowing large and thick vape clouds can be very fun to do, especially when you have contests with fellow vapers and friends.
Now the industry has realized that not everyone wants to just vape for the sake of blowing huge clouds of flavored nicotine, people have learned that vaping is healthier than smoking and want an easy way to get started on vaping. At the current state, sub ohm and temperature control devices made great vaping devices, but they were not easy to learn, when we mean easy, we mean to just turn on the device and get started.
So now we see the industry producing easy to use devices such as pod systems that use salt-based nicotine juice.
WHAT is a pod device and easy to start vaping with it?
Pod devices are mix between e-cigarettes and vape pens that have been revamped to make it easy for anyone to use the device right out of the box.
How do pod systems work and do you get the same hit of nicotine as you do when smoking?
