VaporFi Australia - Ultimate Vapourizer Buying Guide

If this is your first time shopping for a vapourizer, you’re in luck. This complete vapourizer buying guide is designed to walk you through the selections of the various devices, e-liquids and accessories that you will need to make for a great vaping experience. By the time you reach the end, you should have all the information you need to buy the perfect vapourizer and become a true vaper.

Vapourizers and E-Cigarettes

Vapourizers and e-cigarettes are both used for vaping. Both styles of devices apply heat to a liquid carrier that delivers nicotine and flavour to the user. E-cig vapourizer mods were designed specifically to mimic the look and feel of traditional cigarettes. This is especially important for smokers who want the familiarity of a cigarette in their vapor products during the transition.

E-cigarettes are very popular today. They typically include a rechargeable battery that screws onto a liquid cartridge. The liquid cartridges are disposable and come pre-filled with whatever e-liquid flavour and nicotine strength you choose. There is very little learning involved with these devices, as they only have a single button and one function. The VaporFi Express is one e-cigarette model that continues to earn high marks from vapers around the world. 

Vapourizers are an advanced form of the e-cigarette. These devices are usually more powerful and more flexible in application than e-cigarettes. They also open up the possibility of choosing your own e-liquids with a wider selection of flavours available. Vapourizers come in many different styles, which we will explore later in this guide. 

Vapourizer Starter Kits

For the most part, when you purchase any vapourizer you will actually be getting a vaporiser starter kit. The starter kit includes not just the device, but all of the things you need to get the device set up for the first time. In most cases you will get the device, a set of spare o-rings and any specialty tools needed for putting it together, a couple atomisers and coils and a mouthpiece.

The actual contents of your starter kit will vary by brand, so you should make sure you read the box or the product page carefully to make sure you have everything you need! Batteries may or may not be included depending on the design, so pay special attention to that. The VaporFi Pro 3 Starter Kit is a nicotine vapourizer starter kit specifically designed for new vapers who want a product that’s easy to use right out of the box. It also includes all the essential items – including the battery.

Now that we’ve covered the basics, we can take a look at some of the more complex vapourizer modifications out there. 

Vapourizer Mods

The term “vapourizer mod” is really just a fancy way of saying that you’re using an advanced personal vapourizer instead of a basic e-cigarette. Vape mods come in several varieties, but temperature control (TC) and sub-ohm mods are the most popular. The VaporFi VOX TC mod is a temperature-control device that allows you to change the amount of heat put out by your coils. This can have a large impact on the flavour and strength of your vape. It can also change the density of the vapour clouds produced.

Many TC mods are also sub-ohm mods. A sub-ohm mod is any mod where the resistance of the coils is below 1 ohm. In general, sub-ohm mods are used to create larger clouds and to enhance the strength of the nicotine hit and flavour. Sub-ohm devices are built with extra safety features in place to protect against short circuits or overheating. Some devices are not compatible with sub-ohm coils.

The best personal vapourizer mods are often able to handle both sub-ohm and temperature-control functionalities to achieve a truly customised vaping experience. If you want to know where to buy nicotine vapourizer products, you can visit to shop our full selection of vape mods online.

Vapourizer Tanks

A vapourizer tank is a simple concept: The tank holds the e-liquid that you use to vape. Some vape mods have built-in tanks while others use external tanks that sit on top of the device. Tanks can also vary greatly in size and capacity, with anywhere from 1 millilitre of e-liquid up to 7 millilitres of e-liquid storage. The VaporFi Pro 3 tank is a 2.5-mL capacity, but the Vibe tank is a 3.5-mL tank. These are common sizes for most standard applications.

Most of today’s tanks are easily refillable from the top, but some older-style tanks require you to remove the tank from the vapourizer body to refill. Nonetheless, all tanks have a designated spot for your wick to come through, which transfers the e-liquid up to the coils where it is heated.

So, what is the best vapourizer tank? The answer really depends on how you use your device. If you want something small and compact, a smaller tank may work best for you. If you plan on spending a lot of time away from home and don’t want to carry extra liquid on you, a larger tank is the way to go. Don’t forget – you will also want to find a tank that works well with your device. 

Vape Atomisers and Coils

The atomiser is the portion of your vapourizer that really does the work of heating your e-juice. Some atomisers come with coils pre-installed and you simply swap them out once the coil has lived out its life. Other atomisers are reusable or “rebuildable” and you take them apart to install new coils and a new wick on your own. These are called rebuildable atomisers (RBAs) or rebuildable drip atomisers (RDAs).

An RDA is designed to be used without a tank. Instead, you drip a small amount of e-liquid down into the atomiser manually. Advanced vapers feel that this gives them more control over flavour and vapor production because you limit the amount of e-liquid in the system at any given time. 

The coils are the component that actually heats up when you press the firing button. Coils go bad after a period of time because of residue buildup. Eventually this will impact the flavour and feel of your vapour, which indicates that it’s time for a change. Coils also come in different resistance ratings that are used for special temperature-control and sub-ohm builds. 

Vape Batteries

Many of today’s most popular vapourizers do not have built-in batteries. The reasoning is that interchangeable batteries are more convenient for you because you can carry a spare set of batteries or leave an extra set on the charger and swap them out when you need them. Built-in batteries usually mean that you have to leave your whole device connected to a charger at some point each day, which limits your ability to travel with your device.

Vape batteries come in several different styles and configurations. You should always double-check your device’s manual to find out which style of battery fits. The 18650 battery is the most popular option, but there are others. Once you know what style of battery you need, you will need to choose the battery capacity. Battery capacity is measured in milliamp Hours (mAh). A higher mAh rating means that the battery has a longer life between charges, but it comes with a higher price tag. 


Finally, it’s time to choose your e-juice! E-juices come in hundreds of flavours, but they are all very similar in composition. The two base chemicals used in e-juices are propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin. Both of these chemicals have been deemed generally safe for consumption and are used in a variety of foods and medicines. The next ingredient is the nicotine (that is, if you choose to buy e-juice with nicotine in it). Most e-juice nicotines are food-grade and certified for safety. You should always check with your e-liquid manufacturer to see where their nicotine comes from and if it is pure.

Finally, the flavours are the last ingredient. The flavours used in e-liquids are actually the same as those used in common food products like packaged desserts. They are suspended in propylene glycol and mixed together to create the huge selection of e-liquids that you see today, including chocolates, tobacco, fruity drinks and even custom e-juice flavour blends all your own.

VaporFi sources all its ingredients from FDA-approved, safe sources to ensure the purity and quality of their products. Additionally, VaporFi offers a three-flavour sampler bundle that will get you started if you are unsure of what flavour type you should buy. If you are more adventurous and want to go big, VaporFi’s Grand Reserve Cloud Candy juice is one of the top sellers right now.
