Getting Started

Here at The Mist Factory, we understand how confusing it might be for new vapers, so we have made a small guide to help your transition to vaping more smooth.


What do i need to start vaping?

A vapourizer consists of 3 pieces: a drip tip, atomizer and a battery.

Drip tip

A drip tip is the mouth piece where you inhale from.



An atomizer will consist of a tank and a heating element. This is where your liquid is contained and heated. Atomizers come in different styles and colours but they all do basically the same thing. Inside the tank is a heating element, which needs to be replaced when the coil is no longer working. An indication when it is time to change coils when you notice little to no vapour production with
a fully charge battery.



This is what powers your device. Batteries comes it different styles, shapes, colours and sizes, much like atomizers. Depending on how often you vape will determine what mAh rating on the battery is suitable for you. As a general rule, the more often you vape the higher mAh rating the better. When you notice your vapourizer producing less vapour its time time for a recharge.



E-liquid or E-juice is the liquid that is used to vaporize. E-Liquid typically contains Vegetable Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, and flavoring. Here in Australia it is illegal to sell nicotine, however if you wish to buy nicotine there are many online vendors from all over world selling it.

How To Vape?

Using electronic cigarettes and understanding how to vape is pretty simple. Although it requires more action than the traditional tobacco cigarette, it is far less harmful. Once you grasp what it takes to use an electronic cigarette (which consists of a charged battery and an atomizer/tank filled with e-liquid), here’s some useful tips on how to vape.


What Does Vapour Feel Like?

You may have heard from the media that vaping is the same thing as smoking. However, it’s very much different. In fact, everything from the taste, the cleaner feeling quality of vapor, the feel of thickness, to the larger exhaled volume; vapour is far superior than harmful tobacco smoke in every which way.

But for someone who has never vaped, what does vapour feel like? – Being that Vegetable Glycerin, an ingredient in e-liquid, has the ability to capture moisture molecules from the air, when you blow vapor onto your skin it’s typically room temperature or a bit cooler. In your mouth vapor has a much thinner feeling compared to tobacco smoke. Vapor also doesn’t have a chemical infused taste as tobacco cigarettes – assuming you’re a smoker, you probably won’t smell or taste the chemical infused smoke because your body has become used to it. However, once you finally quit or switch to electronic cigarettes, the smell and taste is horrendous.

In addition, when you’re no longer a smoker, your senses will begin to heal from the many years of abuse. Your sense of smell will be really strong, so expect to be disgusted when you smell someone smoking a cigarette anywhere near you.


What To Expect

When you first make the switch from tobacco cigarettes to electronic cigarettes, you’ll notice some changes that are good. Some vapers have said that they could breathe better, get less winded, no more terrible coughs and another that I’ve heard from many – notice an improved better immune system. However, there are some things to expect that come with removing yourself from the 4,000 chemicals in tobacco cigarettes. Here are a few of those that we’ve heard of or experienced. (This doesn’t necessarily mean that this will happen to you.)

If these issues continue, I advise you to consult with your local physician.
