Using an e-cigarette is a lot easier than you might think. If you’ve smoked regular tobacco cigarettes before, the process is surprisingly similar. In fact, e-cigarettes have become popular in large part because they mimic the smoking experience so well, yet are a better alternative that eliminates smoke and its associated toxins and carcinogens. If you’re still wondering how to use an e-cigarette, though, you’re not alone.
First, you need to fully charge the battery. You also need to assemble the e-cigarette. Once the battery is charged, you can screw the atomizer into it. Next, screw the cartridge into the atomizer, making sure to remove any protective cap on the cartridge so that liquid can be drawn into the atomizer. If your e-cigarette has a cartomizer instead of an atomizer and a cartridge, you only have two pieces to screw together.
Most beginning e-cigarette users find that the most common aspect of using the device is filling the cartridge tank with eLiquid. The most common method for getting eLiquid into the tank is to drip it in. However, you can make the job easier on yourself by using an electronic cigarette refilling safety syringe or a tank filling adapter for your eLiquid bottle. It’s important to use the right amount of eLiquid. Too little can result in a burnt taste, but too much can flood the e-cigarette’s atomizer and make your e-cigarette impossible to use, even requiring you to replace the atomizer and/or battery. The syringe makes it especially easy to measure the correct amount for your e-cigarette’s tank capacity.
Once the tank is filled, you can finally learn how to use an e-cigarette to mimic the smoking experience. Put the cartridge to your mouth just as you would an ordinary tobacco cigarette. Some e-cigarettes are manually controlled, while others automatically power the heating element when you take a drag. If your e-cigarette turns on automatically, take a quick puff without inhaling to prime the atomizer. Next, all you have to do is drag, inhale, and exhale as you would with a standard cigarette.
If you’re used to tobacco cigarettes, note that your inhale should be longer and gentler with an e-cigarette. Your e-cigarette will probably automatically shut off after a certain number of seconds to prevent the atomizer from overheating. If your e-cigarette is manually powered, all you need to do is push and hold the button just before you take a drag. Release the button just before you finish the drag. With a manually powered e-cigarette, your first drag can be a full drag. Don’t hold the button for longer than five to seconds at a time and take a break between drags. If you don’t, the atomizer may overheat. If you notice that the atomizer is getting unusually hot, stop using the e-cigarette for a while.
