First Timer Guide

Welcome to Freedom Smoke USA here is where we will provide you with the information that will be needed to start you on your journey to a healthier lifestyle. We only put four ingredients in our juices which include: nicotine, PG, VG, and flavor. We DO NOT put water, alcohol or any other kind of cut into our juices. Our juices are the World’s finest for the reason that we do not and will not compromise FLAVOR in our products for any reason whatsoever. Our nicotine is 99.998 percent pure and certified by U.S. labs. Our vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) ingredients are made in labs in

the U.S. and our VG is certified Kosher. We know that you can find other juices out there but we invite you to place one of our juice bottles next to other juices and gaze at the difference, compare the aromas, and taste-test the two of them. You will then immediately understand that our juice is the finest in the world. We are Vapers just like you, and what we put in our own bodies is nothing short of the best there is. We are pleased and honored to share that with you.

This guide is to inform the first time user on hardware needed to start vaping e-juice.  We understand that the internet is flooded with information about the electronic cigarette and its use and combing through all the information can get overwhelming and confusing at times.  While we encourage you to conduct your own research we have included here a simple explanation that eliminates the confusion without having to spend hours on understanding the functionality of an electronic cigarette and the vaporizing of flavored e-juice.

Starting Your Journey Tip #1

First thing’s first. As a newbie to vaping your job is to get informed. There is plenty of information available on our website. Taking the time to read, and research e-cigarette’s will benefit you, and possibly even others that you know such as friends and family. Don’t let anyone including the government decide on your health, because it’s YOUR health and you have a choice.


Starting Your Journey Tip #2

Keep in mind that every smoker is different and that you will need to complete a bit of a trial run when you first start vaping. We have a lot to offer at Freedom Smoke USA such as:

  • customizable nicotine selection anywhere from 0mg to 36mg,

  • numerous sorts of e-juice flavors to choose from (tobacco, fruity, candy, and/or savory),

  • battery sizes/colors/types,

  • and much more.

When making the transition from traditional cigarettes to e-cigarettes users commonly start vaping traditional tobacco flavors but don’t be surprised to find out that you may also enjoy vaping some of the wild and crazy flavors that we offer. Take a chance on those unusual flavors, you may find yourself making that e-juice your permanent vape. When purchasing the different e-juices to taste test, just remember you were paying $7.00 plus dollars a pack for cigarettes.  So even if you go through many different e-juices to find your personal best flavor, you are still spending less than you were with cigarettes.

We recommend purchasing a starter kit such as the eVod starter kit, because a kit comes with two batteries, two eVod clearomizers, and everything else you will need to start you on your healthier path. As for what we recommend for e-juice we suggest a master sample pack, because it has a wide variety of e-juice which gives you the chance try many e-juices to find the right e-juice for you. Check out the “Getting Started” section of our website for staff picks, and other popular flavor suggestions.


Starting Your Journey Tip #3

Always be prepared for a time when you are not home, or on vacation. Keep a back stock of extra batteries, and e-juice. Make sure you keep a car charger, and an extra charging cord around. The worst thing that can happen is for you to run out of battery life and have no back up. The second worst thing would be to run out of e-juice so keep yourself stocked just in case of an emergency. I suggest ordering more product than you will actually need, in case any problem arises. Extra e-juice always comes in handy when you want to help someone else make the change to electronic cigarettes also, so STOCK up so you can VAPE on.


Starting Your Journey Tip #4

Find the way that works for you….learn to VAPE. This is relatively easy, but just like most things in life it takes time to adjust to the change and to find out what works best for you. The first thing you will need to get used to is the change in weight.  An e-cigarette no matter what size is going to weigh more than the traditional cigarette. The hit you would take from a traditional cigarette will vary from the one you take from an e-cigarette. Typically once you start vaping, and completely quit smoking your body will also encounter some changes you will be able to breath better, feel healthier and much more.

What’s an e-Cig?

An e-cigarette is a device that produces vaporized nicotine that is inhaled. The device is battery-operated and heats a coil which turns the e-juice into vapor. Vapor creates a smoking sensation or ‘throat hit’ much like one you would receive from using a traditional tobacco cigarette. When you draw on the device (as you would a cigarette), a heating element vaporizes the liquid, and converts it into vapor that is inhaled. The act of using an electronic cigarette is often referred to as ‘vaping’.


Electronic cigarettes come in different sizes, shapes, and colors. The type of electronic cigarette you choose to vape will depend on what parts compose your device. There are three key components which make up an e-cigarette; a battery, e-juice, and a heating element.


  • Battery: The rechargeable battery uses lithium-ion (Li-ion) technology. It includes embedded safety switches that protect the battery from short circuit conditions, over charge and over drain. The battery is activated by the user through a push button switch during the vaping process and is rechargeable through the use of a charger on any standard outlet. The charger has indicator LED’s that will indicate when a battery is charged.


  • Wick/Coil: The wick and coil are but a mere wire (coil) coiled around a piece of silicon rope (wick). The coil and wick are housed in a device that connects to the battery.  The coil ends through the housing will connect to the positive and negative poles of the battery.  The housing is usually a tube like device known as an atomizer or it can also be a plastic or glass tank used to hold e-juice and keep the wick moist with the e-juice.  These housing devices connect to the battery by screwing them together (all of our products are designed using a 510 threading). Through its resistance to current, the coil will heat up when a current is applied and vaporize the e-juice resting on the moist wick.

  • Which nicotine strength to get? Well, it really depends on the user here is an example:If you are a pack of day smoker anywhere from 18mg-24mg nicotine strength should be a great start. 24mg is the most common nicotine level to start with for the average vaper that smoked regular cigarettes. A regular pack of tobacco cigarettes will usually contain about 24mg of nicotine. The nicotine level should be lower if you were smoking a light cigarette.  Remember our e-juice’s nicotine level is customizable anywhere from 0mg to 36mg.

  • E-juice:  The e-juice is a mixture made up of four fundamental ingredients: Nicotine, PG, VG and flavoring.  The liquid nicotine content is controlled by the customer where he/she can have their e-juice blended anywhere from 0-36mg.  At FSUSA we offer some customizable e-juices where you can adjust your PG/VG level to suit your needs. The common PG/VG ratio is 50/50.  Increasing one decreases the other.  An increase in PG will increase the throat hit but there will be a decrease in vapor production.  An increase in VG will increase vapor production but decrease the throat hit.  The PG and VG are FDA approved substances used in clinical vaporizers.  Their purpose on e-juice is to generate vapor clouds and simulate a throat hit.  The flavoring is custom made and custom mixed by blending experts and can come from various sources.  We at FSUSA get our flavoring exclusively from FlavourArt in Italy and custom blend it for different flavors in our own facilities. Finding the right e-juice for you may feel like a hassle, but once you find the right flavor it will be a breeze from there on out. Don’t settle for bad tasting e-juice.

To get started you will need the following:

  • a battery and charger

  • an atomizer, clearomizer, cartomizer, or tank

  • a drip tip (if using an atomizer or cartomizer)

  • e-juice.

How to use the e-cig:

Connect your battery to the atomizer/cartomizer or tank.  If you are using an atomizer apply 2-3 drops of e-juice onto the wire mesh inside the atomizer. If using a cartomizer place approximately 50 drops of e-juice onto the poly-fill material.  If you have purchased a tank simply fill the tank with e-juice and replace the top or bottom (whichever you were required to remove to fill the tank with e-juice) and let it sit for a minute or two to insure that the wick will be moist.  Attach the atomizer/cartomizer or tank to the battery by screwing it on and making sure that it is snug not too much but just enough to keep it from becoming loose.  Apply the drip tip if applicable.

To operate your e-cigarette press the button five times fast to activate your battery. Press, and hold the button, and inhale. Remember that an e-cigarette does most of the work for you and it is not necessary to use a lot of lung pressure to get the vapor into your lungs.  Once you feel you have taken enough of a hit let go of the activation/power button. You will feel the throat hit and upon exhaling will see the vapor.  Practice trying different inhaling lengths and techniques to figure out what is the best hit for you. When your battery is not in use you can deactivate the battery by pressing the button five times fast.
