Make an Informed Decision: Pros and Cons of Different Vaping Devices

If you're just starting out, the abundant choice of vaping devices can quickly become overwhelming. We think vaping should be fun, which is why we've created this quick breakdown of two of the most common types of vaping, so you can make an informed decision without digging too deep into the science behind vaping.

Vaporiser and E-Liquid

Pros Cons
Variety of nicotine strengths available Slightly larger than a traditional cigarette
Can be used with virtually any e-liquid Refilling the e-liquid tank can be messy
Give complete vaping freedom  
Ideal for long-term use  

Vape Pen, Vape Mod or Box Mod?

E-cigarettes, vape pens and vape mods are all different types of vaporisers that use a rechargeable module combined with different e-liquids. Vape pens are very similar to traditional cigarettes, and are perfect for those who want the look and feel of something that's familiar. Vape mods and box mods are both suitable for more experienced vapers, as they are made for sub-ohm vaping. Box mods are the most complicated type of vaporiser, featuring a large battery box and a digital screen used to change the settings of the vaporiser.

Virtually Unlimited Choice of Flavours

One of the major benefits of vaporisers is that they are perfectly compatible with virtually any e-liquid on the market, as core ingredients in all e-liquids are the same across all brands. To get the most out of your experience, however, we recommend choosing the same brand for your device and e-liquid.

Cigalike and Cartridge

Cigalikes, often also referred to as classic e-cigarettes, imitate the look and feel of a traditional cigarette. They use either a rechargeable or disposable battery, combined with disposable e-liquid cartridges, which makes them exceptionally easy to use.

Pros Cons
Ideal for beginners Not as many flavour choices
Looks similar to a traditional cigarette Little flexibility in terms of available brands
No e-liquid to worry about  
Require very little maintenance  

Rechargeable or Disposable Battery?

If you're not yet sure whether vaping is right for you, a disposable electronic cigarette is the perfect way to give it a try without making any commitments. If, on the other hand, you know this could last, a rechargeable e-cigarette starter kit can be the low-cost entry into the world of vaping you've been looking for.

Classic, Minty or Sweet Flavour?

While e-cigarettes don't offer as many flavour options as vaporisers, there is still a range of flavour to choose from. Go with classic tobacco, menthol, vanilla or cherry cigalike.
