How to Choose the Right Vape Mod Kit for Beginners?
5 min read

With so many different types of e-cigarettes to pick from and so much new jargon to understand, selecting the finest vape starter kit for you is a critical step. It is difficult to select the ideal kit that would provide you with the finest start in vaping. However, focusing on vape mod kits ensures you get the best quality vape customised to your needs, setting you on the right path for a fulfilling vaping experience.

Luckily, Freshmist, a leading player in vaping in the UK, has an amazing lineup of e-cigarette starter kits and carries some of the most incredible vape kits, perfect for beginners. Their kits offer the smoothest and most pleasurable switch from smoking to vaping. They also provide significant cost savings, especially when combined with the best e-liquid tobacco options.

Understanding the Parts of a Vape Kit 

Understanding the fundamentals of vape kits' operation is crucial before choosing one. See Freshmist’s basic guide to vaping for a detailed explanation of every part of their vape mod kits. However, if you're just getting started, the battery, coil, and tank/pod are the three main components of a vape kit that you need to be aware of. 

  • Battery: The device's battery life (measured in milliampere-hours) directly correlates with your vape kit's capacity. Specific gadgets, like disposables, are pre-charged and cannot be replenished after they run out of power.
  • Coil: This gathers and warms e-liquid to produce the inhaled vapour. A coil's ability to produce vapour varies. High-resistance coils provide a mouth-to-lung (MTL) experience that is similar to smoking a cigarette but produces less vapour. Beginners should avoid using lower resistance coils (less than 1.0 Ohm) as they have more moisture and frequently offer a direct-to-lung (DTL) or sub-ohm experience.
  • Tank/Pod: This component of your vape kit is where the e-liquid is kept. Pre-filled pods that don't need to be refilled are used in many vape kits, including specific pod kits. However, the majority of conventional e cigarette starter kits require you to add more e-liquid to your tank. Larger tanks will store more e-liquid before refrigeration since they can hold more e-liquid than smaller ones.

Choosing the Right Strength

The level of nicotine in your e-liquid is critical, especially if you're transitioning from smoking to vaping. Because of how smoke reacts with your body, the quantity you get from a typical cigarette is more than that from vaping. Essentially, the amount on the container represents how much nicotine you get per 1 ml of vape juice.

For a broad breakdown, we propose the following: 

  • If you smoke heavily (more than a pack per day), we recommend starting with a high nicotine dose, about 18-20mg, which is the maximum dosage we sell.
  • If you're a pack-a-day smoker, go with a 12mg option. 
  • For people who smoke only a few cigarettes each day, consider the 6mg strength. 
  • Finally, if you're a social smoker, start with 3mg and see how you feel. If that's too much, you may always acquire some 0mg e-liquid to dilute it down if you only want a small amount of nicotine. 

Which e-liquid is Best for your First Vape Kit? 

Choosing the best tobacco e-liquid for your first vape kit is crucial for a satisfying experience.

High-PG Electronic Liquids

Propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG), two common food-grade substances that carry the flavour and nicotine that makeup e-liquid, are often found in higher ratios in high-PG, or "classic," e-liquids. PG usually has a more incredible throat punch and carries flavour better than VG. Additionally, because vintage e-liquids are manufactured with freebase nicotine, their production costs are frequently lower, which is passed on to you, the customer.

Nicotine E-liquids with Salts 

Nicotine Salt Electronic Liquids, often known as nic salts, simulate the flavour and potency of actual tobacco cigarettes. Compared to regular nicotine-containing e-liquids, nicotine salts provide significantly faster delivery of nicotine to the bloodstream, resulting in previously unheard-of desire reduction.

50/50 e-liquids 

Vapers can enjoy e-juice with the rich clouds and smooth throat experience of VG and the robust flavour of PG with 50:50 e-juices. It strikes the ideal balance.


Choosing the right one among the many vape mod kits for beginners requires a lot of consideration. The best way is to start with something basic like a disposable vape, and slowly work your way up to more sophisticated products. Additionally, although some devices may appear expensive and continue to be used, they are often the most cost-effective.

Freshmist ensures there's something for everyone, i.e. from beginners to seasoned users. Their commitment to quality and innovation has made them a trusted name. They have a track record of helping over a million individuals transition away from traditional smoking with their Freshmist Starter kit alone.
