These discreet, portable devices are easy to use, so they’re a favorite for both beginner and advanced vapers. The main elements of every vaporizer are contained in a sleek, compact case. The vape pen is designed to be used with oil, either in disposable cartridges or with a refillable tank. The pen is equipped with an atomizer that can be activated by a lithium-ion battery to heat the oil, which transforms it to vapor that can be inhaled through the pen’s mouthpiece. Vape pens can usually be charged through a USB and are turned on either with a button or automatically when the user inhales.
This category includes e-cigarettes, which are designed to mimic the look and feel of actually smoking. This can help ease the transition for smokers who are making the switch to vaping.
Intermediate to advanced vape enthusiasts often moves on from an e-cigarette or a vape pen to a box mod. These devices offer enhanced battery life and can be completely customized. Common features include the ability to control the temperature and wattage of your vape experience. Many mods also have a display screen so you can see this information at a glance. Box mods are usually larger than vape pens, though still relatively portable.
They also feature interchangeable liquid tanks so you’ll never run low on the go. These mods are designed to enhance the flavor of your e-juice, by utilizing larger coils available in a wide variety and many configurations, i.e. multi coils, (double, triple, quad, etc.) or with mesh. In addition, different wicking materials, of which the most popular is cotton, but are also made of flax, hemp, wood pulp, or ceramic, have different advantages for a multiple of juice thickness or taste preferences. Some tanks known as RDA (Rebuildable Drip Atomizer) or RTA (Rebuildable Tank Atomizer) can be custom built with your own atomizer and wick (think of wrapping your own fly-fishing hook). This way, you can drip e-liquid directly on the coil/wick for a huge vapor production, commonly used in vaping cloud competition. By building your own coils, or even using a pre-fab coil and just rewicking when the wick gets residue buildup or burnt, you can save money by just replacing the wick. This improves your vaping experience but can be cumbersome if you are out and about.
Box mods come in a variety of subtypes, including:
- Sub ohm tanks, which use low wattage to produce billowing clouds of vapor
- High wattage box mods, which are powered by up to four batteries and feature either rebuildable or replaceable coils
- Clearomizers, also called mouth to lung tanks, closely mimic the experience of smoking a cigarette
- DNA mods, which incorporate a computer chip that allows you to run low-ohm coils at a higher wattage
Pod systems combine the convenience and intuitive use of a vape pen easy to change pod-style tanks. Some pod vapes come empty that you can fill with your favorite flavor, and/or use different flavors in different pods. Many pods have replaceable coils, and you can use high nicotine, salt-based e-liquid or use a sub-ohm coil for low nicotine e-liquid. Some pods can be refilled several times before the coil goes out, but with any you fill yourself, be sure to let the wick soak completely (at least five minutes) before using as to be sure you don’t burn a “dry wick.” Many people enjoy the flexibility and economic savings of filling their own pods.
Lots of well-known pod vapes are the prefilled styles, called “Closed Loop Systems.” They come in a variety of flavors, shapes, and styles. Pre-filled pod vapes are the easiest to use and are quickly becoming the most popular due to convenience and ease of use. Most come charged and all you have to do is pop the pod on the battery and you are ready to go. The Juul is one of the most popular pod vapes on the market. Its sleek design and intuitive use provide a smoking alternative with a range of flavors and two different strengths of nicotine. Pods simply click in and out of the battery device, so it’s ideal for those who want to vape on the go as well as for beginners.
Unlike box mods that require e-liquid to be dripped directly onto the atomizer, a squonk mod has a bottom-fed tank with a squeezable bottle that applies liquid directly to the heating element. This removes the inconvenient application method and streamlines the experience while offering the enhanced flavor of traditional box mods. Although this type of vape provides optimal performance, knowledge of battery power and wattage is required for safe operation.
This type of vaping e-liquid provides a more robust, intense nicotine delivery system for the former smoker. Nicotine has a different PH level than regular e-liquid so it can be absorbed quickly for a smooth hit that satisfies cravings. It can also be vaped at relatively low temperatures, which enhances the flavor and allows you to use a smaller disposable vape or a pod vape device where less e-liquid is needed.
