There are reasons for this. Most users start off at a high nicotine level when they are still getting off of analog cigarettes. When a beginner graduates to a device that produces more vapor, they don’t need as high a concentration of nicotine to be satisfied. Then, they may want to further “step down” (decrease the nicotine strength) once they find that high nicotine actually screws with the flavor of an e-liquid. Simply put, the less nicotine you use, the better your liquid will taste and, despite what media pundits seem to think, it turns out that even adults like things that taste good.

Not only does it taste like burning butt hairs (I don’t actually know what burning butt hairs taste like, but I have imagined tasting them, and it’s gross), but it might actually ruin your cartomizer, coil, or wick. So figure out how to fill it up, and make sure everything is properly saturated.
I decided that I would keep a journal for the first 30 days, as there was so much to learn about modern electronic cigarettes (which is a complete misnomer for anything but the ‘cigalikes’ that you find in gas stations). About a week in I decided to turn this into a blog, and share my experience with new users.
That said, very few carcinogenic chemicals have been found in e-cigarette vapors, and those present only appear to be in trace quantities – far less than in burning tobacco and similar or less than in recognized nicotine replacement therapies.
The first scale I used had a 60 second inactivity auto shutoff, and after the second or third time I had to dump a mix because it powered off while I was adding an ingredient, I had to replace it.
And I don’t mean “kid-friendly” flavors like watermelon and blueberry—although I do have a good blueberry vape if that’s your bag. One of our blends is an extremely complex mixture of oatmeal, rum, raisin, and anise. Another is an ice-blue, damn near unidentifiable tart-sweet menthol blend called Heisenberg. We’re not going for the kiddie market here.
Basically, if you’re on your own property there’s no problem, but don’t vape where it’s not allowed, or where you wouldn’t feel comfortable smoking a traditional cigarette. Why? Because there’s a lot of legislation out there (both pending and passed) limiting where people can vape. So make sure you’re vaping where it’s legal and where it won’t piss anyone off to the point where they’ll try to make it illegal.
There are a lot of pre-made atomizers like cartomizers, clearomizers, and dripping atomizers, but a lot of people mod their atomizer set up as well.
