Vape devices

There are a whole lot of vapers out there and there are a whole lot of vape devices. Each vaper has their own preference when it comes to vaping, whether it is hardware, e-liquid, accessories, or preferred brands.

Too many options can sometimes be a bad thing. A newcomer may be overwhelmed with the number of devices available, not knowing what to pick. Choosing the wrong gear is like buying the wrong car; it still does its job, but you certainly won't feel satisfied.

When buying vape devices, you can choose one of three paths; vape pods, vape pens, and vape mods. We won't be discussing vape pods in this blog, but if you are wondering about what would fit you perfectly when it comes to vape pens and vape mods, you have arrived at the right place. Vapor Shop Direct Distribution brings you all the information you need to make up your mind; should you be buying that vape pen or that vape mod?


All about the Vape pen

First things first, let us have a closer look at vape pens.

Vape pens, as their name implies, are a particular vape device that resembles a cylinder, often with a sleek and aesthetically pleasing look. Vape pens mostly offer MTL (Mouth to Lung) vaping and are very portable because of their compact, lightweight body. These can easily fit your pocket and bag and can be used when traveling because of their portability. A vape pen typically has a single button that you will have to hold down while inhaling.

Vape pens are easy to use and beginner-friendly. They typically have a small tank that is pre-loaded or filled by the user. Vape pens have smaller batteries compared to vape mods, hence limited power. You will have to swap the atomisers every once in a while, depending on how frequently you use your vape pen.


All about the Vape mod

Now that we're familiar with vape pens, let's have a closer look at vape mods.

A Vape mod is an e-cig which is also called a box mod because of its shape. Unlike Vape pens, Vape mods mainly support DTL (Direct to Lungs) and with bigger batteries, these tend to be rather heavier than Vape pens. Almost every aspect of these vape devices are customizable, from the wattage and coil resistance to the airflow, hence the name “mod”.

Vape mods are suitable to be used by the rather more experienced vapers. This is because customizability comes with several complexities, requiring specific knowledge on coils, tanks, batteries, etc. If you are a beginner, you best steer well clear of vape mods.


Vape pens vs Vape mods

Each e-cig has its own specifications, and it is worth taking all of them into account.


Vape pens are smaller and cylindrical which is what makes them portable, while vape mods are larger with bigger batteries.


When it comes to performance, the two devices are on completely different levels. The vape mod has more battery power compared to the vape pens, allowing you to create bigger clouds.


There is far less customizability in a vape pen than in a vape mod. Vape mods can be taken apart and refitted with different components such as tanks and coils.


With all the features vape mods come with, they tend to be more expensive than vape pens. While you will still be able to find cheap vape mods, an average vape mods is double the price of a vape pen.


Your perfect fit

If simplicity, ease to use, cost effectiveness, portability and MTL vaping are the top features you require in a vape, then a vape pen is your best choice. It is as easy as it gets and keeps vaping simple. You can further step-up convenience by opting for a vape pen with an inhale activation.

If you prefer to hold all the strings of your vape device, then a vape pen is certainly not the way to go. If you need more power, more battery life and a DTL vaping, vape mods will suit you best. Vape mods will take your vaping experience to the next level and provide you with endless possibilities to enjoy rich and intense flavours while producing bigger and thicker clouds.   


The Conclusion

You might be lost in the worlds of vape pens, vape mods, vape starter kits and sub-ohm kits without being able to choose. Even if you really are lost, remember that there is a vape kit out there right for you in our collection of vape devices at Vapor Shop Direct Distribution.
