Vaporizers are categorized according to different standards. If you were to walk into a vape shop to inquire about vaporizers, you are likely to have the clerk run you through the various options categorized around size, strength, flavor types, and the amount of vapor they are able to produce.
In this article, we would do the same. We are going to consider the various classes of vaporizers, review how they perform, and the various nicotine strength options available to the user.
Types of Vapes
Vapes comes in 4 distinct size categories namely; disposable pen-style vapes, vape pens, vape pod systems, and vape mods.
Disposables – These are usually the smallest in the range and the first choice for those getting started with vaping. The disposable vape is a prefilled, small, compact, pen-like device that’s designed for single use. It is usually a high-resistance, high-powered device, and it often contains higher nicotine content than other types of vapes. The disposable vaporizer consists of a battery, a tank, and coils (depending on the heating type), and most are either drag activated or are activated by the easy push of a button. At their price point, disposable vapes are very cost-effective. Most are capped at $15, and you can get as much as 1200 puffs of value from a single device. Some high end device like CLVR bar, can provide upto 5000 puffs also.
Don’t let their size fool you; they are as good as vapes can be. The disposable vape is a great choice for beginner vapers, those weaning themselves off nicotine addiction, or those who want to be spoilt for a choice of different flavors on the go.
Because it is suited to people getting out of smoking cigarettes, the disposable offers a higher nicotine strength than others in the range. The nicotine value for the disposable is often capped at 8% (for most products I have reviewed) and it scales down depending on preference.
Vape Pens – The vape pen is quite similar to the disposable vape, but vape pens are usually designed for multiple uses. The design and size of the vape pens make them a good starter kit and an intermediate kit for various categories of users. It is portable and can be easily carried in pockets, bags, or purses. They also have a very good battery life. Most vape pens, depending on the frequency of usage, can go all day without the need for a recharge. The vape pen is refillable, meaning you can enjoy any flavor of your choice, on-the-go and at any time.
Vape pens offer more control over your vaping experience. With vape pens, unlike most disposables, you can control the airflow; you can switch between a tight, dense draw and a lighter, more airy inhale. You also have the fine option of switching flavors and nicotine strengths as you wish and on your own wimp.
Vape pens share the same nicotine profile as disposables, but the option of refillables allows you to switch liquids with different nicotine strengths as you please.
Vape Pod Systems – The vape pod system is a slim, compact vaporizer that offers satisfying vape experiences. It’s an improvement on the vape pen, allowing it to offer more strength and configuration options that meet the demands of an experienced clientele. The vape pod system comes in different shapes, but for most, they follow the same design and working model.
The vape pod is a more advanced device than the pen. It is designed for power and convenience. For its small size, it offers a lot of power and strength options. The device is capable of regular and sub-ohm vaping with pre-filled e-liquids or your own special mix (nicotine free or low-strength nicotine mixture). Some also carry digital displays to allow for a more personalized setting. A vape pod system is the balance between experience and enjoyment. A vape pod system would greatly enhance your vaping experience.
Vape Mods – Vape Mods are advanced vaping devices built for professionals. These devices are targeted at users with experience and advanced vapers who love creating clouds. Vape mods are more complex devices, and they allow for greater customization than your regular pod systems. With the vape mod, you can get a larger battery pack, larger tanks, or better low-resistance coils for perfect sub-ohm vaping. In fact, you can tweak, twist, and turn all the settings to suit your particular preference.
The vape mod is an excellent choice for sub-ohm vaping; it is the vape of choice for the experienced vaper who has overcome his nicotine addiction and simply desires a rich, refreshing vape cloud experience.The low resistance coils of most vape mods ensure that you get the best draw per time and dense clouds for a truly satisfying experience.
Of all the types of vapes, the vape mod is the one most suited to low nicotine strength e-liquids or nicotine-free e-liquids. The low resistance of the coil in the vape mod makes it less compatible with e-liquids with high nicotine strengths as the nicotine hit would be too unpleasant for you.
Vape mods offer truly satisfying experiences and are the kings of vape devices.
Hopefully, you can now tell the difference between the types of vapes and how they suit different users. Ideally, vaping is a journey, and, as with most people, as you wean yourself of your cravings for nicotine, you begin to advance up the chain to the more satisfying experiences offered by the advanced devices.
