We review a range of various vape devices to help you choose the best vaping device for your needs quickly and simply. From the basic e cigarette, the shisha pen or vape pen through to the more advanced vaporisers and vape mod and pod devices.
Vaping made simple!
There are two categories, pre-filled e cigarettes and open system devices. Open system vape devices require the user to fill their device with e liquid whereas pre-filled devices are ready to use.
For newer users, I would recommend using only the pre-filled options so that you avoid having to use e-liquids – an unnecessary additional step during your transition from smoking to vaping which can get a bit messy. There is more of an association with smaller “cigarette like” vape devices which has a familiar feel when first making the transition from smoking.

1. Pre-filled e-cigarettes
Best quality e-cigarette
This is the most popular option!
Best quality e-cigarette – High tech
Juul style slim vape pods
I am a light or social smoker but want to quit. I want something easy to use with prefilled pods and a modern touch. I need a simple “plug-and-play” vape device that is discreet and fits into my pocket or purse.
2. Open system vape devices
Modern tank system – also called the shisha pen or vape pen
Pod vape devices
I want a vape device with sub ohm functionality and the ability to vape both nic salts and e liquids which may contain high concentration of VG e liquid. I don not mind if it does not have the familiar cigarette feel or look.
3. Hi-tech vaporizers e-liquid, tobacco, dry herb & wax
E-liquid vaporizer with herb functionality
I want something small, simple and straight forward and want an open system to use any e-Liquid and also vape dry herb or loose leaf tobacco or wax oil occasionally.

A more dedicated herb vaporizer with e liquid functionality
I want a power vaporiser, but something simple and straight forward and want an open system to use any e-liquid. I also want to vape dry herb, wax or other material.
Advance Vape Pen producing maximum vapour – used by many simply for vaping their favourite e-Juice and other material without having to have more than one device.
4. Larger scale box mod device
I want something easy to use with e-liquid only but want the best regulated mod device with variable wattage, voltage or variable temperature. I would like to be able to exhale huge vapour clouds. I don’t mind if it is large or if there is more maintenance required.

Getting your nicotine hit
The box mod device obviously burns considerably higher rates of e-liquid than say a vape pen simply because they create more vapour. So much so that it is recommended that users only use lower level nicotine strength e liquids with the box mod for sub ohm vaping (typically 3-6 mg whereas generally with e cigarettes users are using 12-20 mg nicotine strength). You do not want a nicotine overdose!
