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.

4. Larger scale box mod device

Best Box Mod UK brand.

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!
