Vape pens are a great place to start your vaping journey. They are also a great option when you’re looking for an extremely portable device that you can take with you everywhere you go. Settling on a vape pen is one of the many decisions you're going to make. You will also need to choose the type of vape and the brand.
We have an expansive collection that will make it easy for you to find the ideal vape pen for you. Here's is everything you need to know to choose the best vape pen.
What is a Vape Pen?
A vape pen is a pen-shaped vaporiser. It’s best-known for its compact, cylindrical and pen-style design. It’s lightweight, highly discreet and perfect for on-the-go vaping.
Depending on the brand and type of the vape pen, it could be as slender as a regular pen or as large as a cigar. The design and features will differ from pen to pen, with some having a basic design and features for starters while others are more sophisticated for veterans.
Components of Vape Pen
Even though vape pens come in different designs and brands, they share the same primary components:
Every electronic device needs a battery to run. Vape pens are not different. They are powered by lithium-ion batteries. There are several other battery options available, depending on what you want. When choosing a vape pen, check the mAh rating of the battery. This indicates the battery’s capacity. The higher the mAh value, the more powerful the device is going to be.
Because a vape pen uses e-liquid, it needs storage to hold the liquid. This is where the tank comes in. A good number of vape pens on our collection use refillable or disposable cartridges. Those that still use tanks have stainless steel, glass, or polycarbonate plastic tanks.
Some designs feature a viewing window to keep an eye on your e-juice levels. Some vape pens allow you to change the tank with another compatible option. However, you can’t pair any vape pen with any tank. When purchasing, pay attention to the compatibility of the vape pens if you want to buy parts separately.
Vape pens use the atomizer as the heating element to vaporise the e-juice. Atomizers come with a coil which is a crucial element in your overall vape experience. The coils come in various materials and constructions, each with varying performance.
Some vapers often prefer to build the coil themselves to personalise their vaping experience. However, this craft is usually reserved for larger mods. For vape pens, it's best to purchase a stock option. What you need to pay attention to when purchasing the coil is the resistance level—the lower the resistance, the quicker the ramp-up time, and the more intense the flavour. You should also consider the type of vape wire used to make the coil.
A vape pen will also feature a plethora of other features like the mouthpiece which you use to inhale, a series of buttons, sensors and lights depending on the design of the vape pen and charger to recharge your batteries.
