How to Inhale Vape Properly: Tips for Using Your Device and Drawing Vapour
This can often be overlooked, especially for those who have recently started vaping. To get the methods locked down and maximise your vaping experience, check out the following answers to your vaping FAQs.
How do I vape properly?
Whether you’re doing it for the first time of the hundredth time, you should always be careful when inhaling. Not taking care can result in coughing or a bad nicotine rush and, especially with those who have just made the switch, can make or break your vaping experience.
To do this, you need to understand the vape device you have and how it works. For example, the myblu™ does not have a button activation like our blu PRO, but an airflow detection system. So, you simply need to take a draw to activate it.
Take a few short puffs before taking a longer drag lasting around 3 to 5 seconds. These start the process and these ‘primer puffs’ will help improve the flavour of your first proper draw.
It is important to purse your lips around the mouthpiece so there is no air gap where vapour can escape. Then, depending on your preference, you can either fill your mouth with vapour before taking it into your lungs (direct to lung) or exhale it without inhaling.

How often should I vape?
This is very dependent on the individual vaper and their experience, or lack of, with vaping. It’s sensible to start off slowly if you have recently started vaping to understand the technique and how varying levels of nicotine will affect you when vaping. Then, when you become used to the sensation, what levels and frequency you require, you should have a much clearer picture.
Our blu 2.0 vapes have approximately 250 puffs per full charge (based on average usage), and most vapers will take between 3 and 7 draws per session – although of course this will vary depending on each person’s vaping style.
How long should I wait between puffs of vape?
You will likely feel the effect of a draw within 30 seconds, so it is important to leave a break between each puff. Most vapers tend to wait around 5 minutes between each puff.
How many puffs a day can you vape?
The recommended maximum puffs per day varies based on your past nicotine usage and the strength of the e-liquid chosen.
Can you vape too much?
Again, naturally this differs from person to person, so you’re likely to know when you’ve had your fill. If you have just started vaping, make sure you wait between puffs and drawing vapour to assess how it feels and affects you. Once you become more accustom to the sensation, you’ll have better idea of your tolerance levels.
