5 vaping tips from the pros for beginners

vaping tips for beginners

From where to place the device in your mouth and how to draw on the vape, to which kit to use and when to refill your juice – there’s a lot to get your head around when you first enter the vaping scene.

If you’re reading this thinking ‘tell me about it’, then you’ve landed on the only piece of content you’ll need. Our in-house experts have clubbed together to arm you with five pro tips to help you get started in style.

Here are five tips to help you make the most of vaping:

Vape liquid TLC

If you are using the blu PRO, make sure you give your e-liquid bottle a good shake before you fill or refill it. This will ensure all the ingredients (the PG/VG mixture and nicotine) properly gel together, making for a much smoother vaping experience from your very first draw to your very last.

While we’re on the topic of your e-liquid, here are a couple of other quick tips:

  • Put the lid back on your bottle when you’re finished refilling

  • Keep bottles of e-liquid, liquidpods and blu bar devices away from direct sunlight

Device maintenance

Without your battery your device is redundant, so take good care of it.

Both the blu 2.0 and blu PRO™ device feature an LED light that changes colour to tell you how much power you have left, and when you need to recharge your device.

The blu 2.0 device has new PowerTap technology, allowing you to quickly check your battery level on the go. Tap your e-cig three times to reveal your charge level - the LED light will show as blue if you have 36-100% charge, yellow if you have 21-35% charge, and red if until you drop below 20% charge remaining. When the LED is red, you should consider plugging your device in as soon as possible to avoid running out of power.

On the blu PRO™ device, the LED light will begin to blink red to show that you need to recharge your device. Once your blu PRO rechargeable device is connected to a USB-compatible device, the button and LED tip of the battery will blink three times and stay lit to show the battery is charging. It will then blink red and turn blue to show that it’s fully charged.

If you spot any rips in the battery’s wrapping or notice dents or any other type of damage to the battery, don’t use it and instead contact Customer Services, who will be able to help.

If you’re still trying to find a vape that suits you, you don’t want the added pressure of not being able to return it if doesn’t work out. At blu, we offer a 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee on all of our re-chargeable e-cigarettes, meaning if you’re not satisfied you can send your device back to us within 30 days and we will refund you.

Experiment with flavours

Blueberry Ice, Strawberry Mint, Green Apple, Polar Menthol… with so much choice it can be tricky knowing where to start.

Our word of advice? Begin with what you know and take it from there. If you liked tobacco in a cigarette, you’ll probably like it in your vape device. Don’t get distracted by what other people are filling theirs with either, as everyone’s taste buds are different.

Once you get more confident you can start experimenting with your flavours, but just focus on the basics first. It’s all about maximum enjoyability after all.

Check out our full vape flavour range for yourself – we offer sweet, fruity, minty and tobacco flavours in strength of 9mg/ml and 18mg/ml.


Let’s start with coils. The frequency with which you need to replace them depends on a few things:

  • How often you use your vape

  • The type of juice you use – generally, people who use VG-based e-liquid will need to replace their coil more than those who use a more balanced PG/VG ratio

  • The type of e-cigarette you use – if you’ve got a variable voltage mod and you regularly bump the power up, there’s a chance you’ll wear the coil out quicker

As a general rule, you will need to replace your blu PRO® clearomiser every ten refills, depending on how much you use the device.

Refilling your liquid is much the same too; the more you vape the more juice you’ll get through.

To make sure you never run out, keep track of roughly how much vape liquid you use and figure out exactly how often you’ll need to refill your tank. Then, you can order however much you need per week, two weeks or month on Vape Subscription. You’ll never have to worry about re-ordering again!
