The Top 5 Vape Pen Kits

The Top 5 Vape Pen Kits

Slim, sleek and sophisticated, there are plenty of reasons why pen-style vape kits are among the most iconic and popular e-cigarette devices on the planet.

Vaping enthusiasts might adore the brute profile and raw power of heavyweight box mods and sub-ohm tanks, but for everyday vaping nothing says ‘craving killer’ quite like the pick-up-and-go vape pen. The popularity of pen-style vape kits is undoubtedly down to their compact form and ease-of-use; their slim, round shape allowing them to be slipped in and out of a pocket or bag with the minimum of fuss. Comprising primarily of buttons or a swivel base to increase or decrease wattage (power) and a fire button, vape pens can also feature other neat tricks such as airflow control and display puff counters.

But the beauty of vape pens isn’t to be found in their form factor alone. They’re also among the most economical of e-cigarettes owing to the fact that most of these devices operate at lower power outputs. Unlike their sub-ohm cousins, pen mods usually fire between 8w – 22w which puts far less strain on the coils and dramatically improves their lifespan, saving you money and the need to replace coils too frequently.

As vaping technology has rapidly evolved, we’ve seen many types of e-cigarette device converge and cross-pollinate features from one to another. So we now see pocket-size wonders capable of monstrous sub-ohm clouds and mods versatile enough to offer MTL (mouth to lung) or DTL (direct to lung) vaping with a simple flick of a switch. With the recent rise of ‘pod’ devices, the clearomisers and atomisers of old have been further deposed by refillable or disposable, open or closed-system pods, making vaping more convenient than ever.

No matter how advanced or refined vaping becomes, however, the vape pen is here to stay and remains the most iconic, and functional, of all vape devices.

Here, we take a look at some of the best vape pens to get your hands on at Vapouriz…

Dispelling Vaping Myths

Dispelling Vaping Myths

For a practice which has been proven to be 95% safer than smoking traditional tobacco, you would think that the scaremongering myths surrounding vaping would be significantly less.  

And yet, even now years after the introduction of e-cigarettes, there still exists a plethora of inaccuracies and misinformation which continue to crop up in conversation whenever the topic of e-cigarettes is visited.  

We’re here to dispel some of those myths and provide you with nothing more than the simple, honest facts. Armed with this information, you can make your own decision as to whether or not vaping is the right option for you.  

Myth 1 “E-Liquids Contain Anti-Freeze”  

This myth was probably born of the fact that e-liquids contain Propylene Glycol: a completely safe and non-toxic substance commonly used in food and cosmetic products. Propylene Glycol is indeed used in anti-freeze, but only to reduce the overall harm caused by ingesting the anti-freeze itself.  

Myth 2 “E-Cigarettes are Dangerous and Will Explode During Use or Travel”  

We’re all familiar with the sensationalised headlines which read "E-cigarette explodes in man’s pocket causing life-changing injuries!" or something to that effect.  However, articles of this nature rarely contain the important facts related to the story, such as mentioning the specific type of e-cigarette device, the place of purchase and the method of charging. All of these factors are crucial in ensuring the safety of e-cigarette use, as products should only be purchased from reputable manufactures and used, charged and stored exactly as instructed. As with all electrical items, failure to comply with the correct safety measures could compromise the safety of the device and lead to some sort of malfunction.  

However, all e-cig devices sold from reliable companies like Vapouriz are equipped with safety protection features which stop the device from overheating or accidentally firing.  It is only unregulated mods (aimed at experienced vapers with a knowledge of battery safety, Ohms Law and DIY coil building) which do not contain protection features, and as such these devices should not be used by anyone who is new to the practice of vaping. 

Myth 3 “Vaping Causes Popcorn Lung”  

This myth has been making the rounds for quite some time now, despite numerous credible sources completely debunking the theory.  

The rumour probably began when factory workers reported experiencing an ailment known as popcorn lung (a bronchial condition which causes coughing and shortness of breath) when exposed to high levels of diacetyl. Because some e-liquids contain diacetyl, the assumption was made that vaping e-liquids could also lead to the affliction. However, very few e-liquids actually use diacetyl and those that do contain far too small of an amount to cause any harm. It should also be noted that traditional tobacco cigarettes also contain diacetyl in significantly higher amounts than what is present in e-liquids.  

Myth 4 “E-Cigarettes Are Just As Harmful As Tobacco Cigarettes”  

Its certainly no myth that traditional tobacco cigarettes are packed with a multitude of nasty additives and potentially lethal chemicals.  

These chemicals derive from different sources along the journey of tobacco manufacture, from the soil to the act of burning the cigarette. There are as many as five-thousand chemicals present in cigarettes and the smoke which is produced from burning them, including (but not at all limited to) ammonia, arsenic, butane, carbon monoxide, methanol and tar.  

E-liquids on the other hand are made up of a simple blend of Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerine, flavourings and nicotine – all of which are safe, non-toxic and free from harmful chemicals and carcinogens.  

Although addictive, nicotine itself isn’t detrimental to health. That’s why nicotine-containing e-liquids are a great option for satisfying your cravings without exposing yourself to the cocktail of harmful additives found in tobacco.  

Myth 5 “Vaping Leads to Smoking” 

Public Heath England have long been advocating the benefits of e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation aid, but a recent study carried out by the organisation stated that there wasno evidence so far to support the concern that e-cigarettes are a route into smoking among young people.”  

Another study published to the US National Library of Medicine found that “most e-cigarette experimentation does not turn into regular use, and levels of regular use in young people who have never smoked remain very low. 

Myth 6 “E-Cigarettes And E-Liquids Are Deliberately Targeted At Teens” 

Young people will always gravitate towards what they consider new and exciting, just as they have done for generations with tobacco cigarettes.  

However, it is important to remember that vaping was developed exclusively as a means of smoking cessation, to help people who already smoke kick the habit successfully and safely. That’s why e-cigarettes and e-liquids are strictly sold to over 18's only, to ensure that young people – especially young non-smokers - are not enticed to take up vaping.

What is 50/50 E-liquid?

What is a 50/50 E-Liquid?

You may have heard the phrase ‘50/50 e-liquid’ bandied about, but what exactly is a universal vape juice? The answer is actually a rather simple one.

A universal e-liquid is a vape juice which can be used in either classic e-cig devices or in sub-ohm devices. So whether you prefer sub-ohming or something more similar to cigarette smoking, a universal e-liquid can suit your preferred device.

These types of universal e-liquids are typically made of 50% vegetable glycerine and 50% propylene glycol, which results in an extremely versatile form of e-liquid.

Universal e-liquids pack some serious punch in both the flavour and cloud department too. The composition of this kind of e-liquid delivers huge, dense clouds, as well as crystal clear, lip smacking flavours.

Our range of universal e-liquids come in a selection of flavours and strengths. The zero nicotine version is perfect if you want to customise your e-liquid and add your own nicotine shot. Plus we use high quality, European-sourced ingredients, so you’re always going to enjoy a satisfying vape experience.

Try out Vapouriz 50/50

We’ve launched our 50/50 e-liquids in a variety of flavours to tickle any vaper’s tastebuds.

Try our universal e-liquids for a new kind of vape experience today.

How to save money when you’re a vaper

How to save money when you’re a vaper

One of the big draws for anyone trying to give up smoking, is how much cheaper it is to vape. The NHS smoking calculator reckons even a 5-a-day smoker will spend up to £900 per year on cigs, whereas a vaper might spend on average £20 per month on e-liquids and devices, which amounts to £240. That’s already a saving of around £660. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to us…

But are there other ways to save money as a vaper? There certainly are, and here are a couple of ways you can cut down the costs and still enjoy a vaping lifestyle.

Buy short fill e-liquids

Short fills - also known as shake ‘n’ vapes - are a popular choice for the money saving vaper. Short fills are purposefully only partly full so you can add your own shot of nicotine at a strength that suits you. Short fills are cheaper than e-liquids with nicotine in them, and means you can switch up your flavours throughout the month, so you won’t get bored too easily.

Hunt out bargains

Most e-liquid and vape manufacturers will have special offers and discount sales on at some point. Sign up to e-newsletters and follow your favourite brands on social media to be the first to hear about any bargains you could take advantage of. Many new brands to the market also offer their e-liquids at introductory prices to build a buzz around them, so it’s worth stocking up.

Take care of your coils

Vape coils are one of those unavoidable recurring costs for a vaper. Replacing your coils is inevitable, but did you know there are a couple of hacks for making sure your coils need to be replaced less frequently?

First of all, extend your coil’s lifespan by priming them before adding them to your device. The way to do this is by saturating the wick when you replace a coil, then taking a couple of dry hits (don’t press the fire button) to siphon the vape juice into the cotton. The next step is to start vaping with your replacement coil at a slightly lower wattage than normal - this eases in the wire expansion.

You should also clean your vape coil regularly. Getting rid of the gunk that accumulates will both help your coil live longer, and let you enjoy a fresher vaping experience.

Make pals with other vapers

Ever taken a punt on an e-liquid only to find it tastes pretty damn horrible? We all have our own preferences for e-liquid flavours and one person’s Dom Perignon may be another’s drain water.

This is where being friends with other vapers comes in really handy. Provided they are generous friends, they’ll probably let you try out their e-liquid to see if you like it before you buy. After all, that’s what friends are for.

Buy quality devices

Whether you’re into serious sub-ohming or enjoy a simple e-cig, the old saying ‘you get what you pay for’ has never been more true. Invest in a quality, reputable vape device and always buy from recognised brands to make sure your vape lasts for years to come. A little bit more initial outlay will always pay off in the long run, with a device you can rely on not to stop working or need replaced within a couple of months.

Choosing Your First Sub Ohm Vape Kit

Choosing Your First Sub Ohm Vape Kit

Are you in search of bigger, more impressive vape clouds? Do you yearn to fill the room with great plumes of vapour? It could be time to switch to your first ever sub ohm vape kit.

Sub ohm vaping is on the rise, but if you’re new to the idea it can be difficult to know where to start. Here are our top tips on choosing your first sub ohm vape kit.

What is sub ohm vaping?

First up, let’s look at what sub ohm vaping actually is. Sub ohm kits produce bigger clouds than traditional vapes thanks to two things: resistance and airflow.

Let’s get into the science of it for a second...

Pushing electricity through a coil creates resistance, and that resistance is measured in ohms. Therefore, coils with a resistance of less than 1 ohm are termed ‘sub ohm’.

Sub ohm kits are designed to deliver more power without excessive heat, which as a result produces more vapour.

Then there’s airflow. Sub ohm vapes have larger air holes to cool the coil and also the vapour. Most sub ohm kits have adjustable airflow so you can switch between mouth to lung or direct to lung, plus this affects the vapour temperature and flavour intensity.

Should I build my own sub ohm mod?

Back in the day (ok, just a few years ago) intrepid vapers were building their own sub ohm devices from coils and mechanical mods. This is where sub ohming’s less than pristine safety record comes from, since it was more likely things would go wrong when putting together a sub ohm vape kit yourself.

Nowadays it’s easy to pick up a safe, effective sub ohm kit and start using it straight away. Although some vapers still build their sub ohms, for beginners it’s always a good idea to start with the pre-made vape kits. Make sure you always buy from a reputable brand, like those on our site.

Choose your first sub ohm kit

Now you know a little bit about the art of sub ohm vaping, let’s look at the best sub ohm kits for beginners.

The PockeX AIO Vape Kit by Aspire is a good place to start. This slick-looking, pocket-friendly vape kit gives the sub ohm experience without being too bulky.

Alternatively, feast your eyes on the stunning design of the iStick Pico Vape Kit by Eleaf. This portable kit is a popular choice with sub ohm vapers who like to be in control of temperature and power.

Another fantastic choice for beginners, is the VBOX 40w Vape Kit which offers excellent value for money and high performance. It’s a good option for first time vapers who don’t want to make a huge investment.

These are just some of the options for first-time sub ohm vapers. For more, take a look at our full vape kit collection.

What is nicotine salt? And should I try it?

What is nicotine salt? And should I try it?

Move over ‘freebase’ nicotine, nicotine salt is making waves in the vaping community. While freebase nicotine may have been the norm for decades now (originally created by Marlboro to make cigarettes more potent) there’s a brand new kid on the vaping block.

Nicotine salt is a pure form of nicotine, exactly like you would find in a tobacco leaf. Except this type of nicotine hasn’t had its pH altered to make it more bioaccessible or stronger in potency. Instead, vape innovators have added benzoic acid into the mix which makes this type of nicotine accessible at a lower temperature and lower in alkaline - making it more palatable.

While there’s a definite buzz around nicotine salt, it’s important to remember the type of vape device and liquid you choose is unique to your own personal tastes. Many people are hailing nicotine salt as the best way to quit smoking, thanks to its high nicotine absorption level and instant buzz. However, if you prefer a less nicotine-focused vape, it might not be for you.

Is nicotine salt right for me?

We’ve come up with a few questions that should help you figure out if nicotine salts are a let’s-go or a no-go for you.

Do you prefer a sub-ohm or a vape pen?

Nicotine salts only work effectively with vape pens, because they are chemically altered to turn to vapour at a lower temperature. For those quitting smoking, a vape pen is usually the first choice, since it most closely resembles the experience of cigarette smoking - and nicotine salts are the perfect complement to this.

How much of a nicotine hit do you want?

Nicotine salts make the nicotine in your e-liquid far more accessible. This is another reason salts are popular with recent quitters, as they deliver the hit and the nicotine high, yet don’t give a harsh throat hit. If you’re a past or present vapour who is tempted back by cigarettes now and then for the buzz, nicotine salts are worth a try. On the other hand, if you aren’t used to high levels of nicotine, salts could be too much for you.

Is cost important to you?

Practically speaking, nicotine salts are more cost efficient because you need less of the liquid to get a nicotine hit. Add to this the longer shelf-life of nicotine salt e-liquids and you’ll find it works out cheaper than traditional liquids.

Do I enjoy big clouds?

Nicotine salt liquids are better suited to the low profile vaper due to their high nicotine content. Cloud-chasers need not apply.

So there you go - now you know if nicotine salts are worth a try or not. Whether you’re a transitioning smoker, a seasoned vaper looking for a stronger buzz or simply a stealth vaper who wants to draw less attention, nicotine salts might just be right up your street.

 

The Best E-liquid Flavours for Summer

The Best E-liquid Flavours for Summer

There are few things more chill than a tasty vape on a hot summer’s day. Whether you’re heading to the beach, kicking back in the park or partying until the sun comes up - the only clouds in the sky this summer are coming straight out your vape. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite summer e-liquid flavours for you to enjoy while the sun shines.

Juicy Apple by Vapouriz

Ok, so maybe we’re a little biased, but we reckon there’s something super refreshing about this e-liquid flavour. Tangy and sweet, this vape juice is inspired by fresh, crisp green apples.

Orange & Mango Chill by Double Drip

Another fruity flavour is the flavourful concoction of orange and sweet mango in this e-liquid by Surrey-based company Double Drip. There’s just the smallest hint of mint too, to add to the level of refreshment.

Melba by Pocket Fuel

Tantalise your sweet tooth even further with this peachy juice from Pocket Fuel. Ripe, succulent peaches mingle with raspberries and a yoghurt base and give your tastebuds a summer time treat.

Sun Drip by Double Drip

With a name like that it’s clear to see this e-liquid was made for hazy summer days. It’s a zesty combo of punchy grapefruit, sweet tangerines and tasty apricots.

Ice Mint by Vapouriz

When the temperature rises, you’ll be as cold as ice with this clean, cool minty e-juice.

Mango Raspberry Ice Cream by Double Drip

Treat yourself to a different kind of ice cream this summer, with this delicious vape juice from Double Drip. Mango and raspberry are perfectly balanced by a hint of vanilla.

Glo Ice by Distrikt

If you like a short-fill e-liquid, try out this totally tropical concoction by Distrikt - it contains tangy lemon, grapefruit and orange flavours.

Lemon Sherbet by Double Drip

On super hot days only a refreshing lemon hit will do, so try out this tart tasting e-liquid from Double Drip for a tingling citrus sensation.

Travelling on holiday with your short fill e-liquids

Travelling on holiday with your short fill e-liquids

If you’re lucky enough to be jetting off somewhere exotic this summer, you’ll want to pack all the vaping essentials to enjoy once you get there. But travelling with your vape gear can be a daunting prospect due to the rules, regulations and practicalities of taking your e-liquids with you on holiday.

Luckily, if you familiarise yourself with the rules about travelling with your short fill e-liquids, you shouldn’t run into too much trouble.

No vaping at the airport

First up, definitely do not be tempted to vape once you arrive at the airport. Most airports around the globe treat vaping exactly the same as smoking. If you really need a hit, then seek out the smokers’ lounge.

Pack e-liquids in hold luggage

Although short fills generally have less actual liquid than standard e-liquids, the easiest option to transport them is to put them in your hold luggage a.k.a. your suitcase. This will avoid the inevitable security checks and should in theory make the start of your holiday a smooth one.

When packing the short fills into your suitcase, try to avoid glass bottles as these can smash and result in a massive clean up operation on the other end of your trip. It’s also a good idea to wrap your short fill e-liquids in a plastic bag, just in case any spillage should occur.

Carry on rules

In some situations, you may only be taking carry on luggage. In this scenario, remember to stick to the liquid carry on rules:

  • - Liquid in bottles should not exceed 100ml
  • - All bottles must fit in the small plastic bag

Most short fills are around the 50ml mark, so you’re unlikely to exceed the 100ml per bottle limit. However don’t go overboard with how many bottles you take, as an excess number could be confiscated at security.

Definitely no vaping on the flight

You’ve probably already heard the horror stories about flights being diverted and massive fines being doled out. Just don’t even go there. You might think you’re a stealthy vaper, but plane smoke detectors are incredibly sensitive, for obvious reasons.

Research your destination

Another important point to be aware of, is that in some countries vaping is consider strange, unusual or even completely banned. To stay on the right side of the law - make sure you check well in advance what the rules are in the country you’re travelling to.

For vapers heading abroad this summer, planning ahead is the key to smooth, stress-free travels with your vape gear and short fills.

Focus on: Innokin JEM

Focus on: Innokin JEM

Innokin is one of the most respected names in vaping today, so when the brand releases a new bit of kit people tend to take notice.

The JEM is the latest mod to turn heads, and if you’re looking for a new setup this is one well worth a closer look.

One for MTL vapers

In recent years much of the focus has been on sub-ohm vaping within the e-cigarette community.

Box mods with plenty of customisation options to help create the perfect conditions for big, thick, cloud tend to take centre stage, meaning if you’re for a more traditional e-cig, you can feel a little left behind.

Innokin’s JEM is a refreshing change of pace, and this sleek e-cig kit offers plenty of power while still keeping things simple.

The first thing to note is the JEM keeps the simple pen-style shape. It’s compact, lightweight and comes with minimal faffing. This device isn’t packed with dozens of features and output modes – instead it’s a practical and reliable set up that does one or two things really well.

Safety and performance are the two key considerations, and what the company has achieved with the JEM is providing a perfect kit that you can get to grips with quickly and trust will work every time you pick it up.

The large 1000mah battery means you can go hours between charges, and features like adjustable wattage mean you can get enjoy your vape exactly how you like it, whether you like a lot of throat hit or prefer just a little.

With lower wattage you can achieve a more mellow vape (and extend your time between charges). Ramping it up to a higher wattage will help maximise flavour and nicotine hit and really get the most of your e-liquid.

Inside the box

A 1.6 ohm coil comes pre-installed with your JEM pen, meaning you can pretty much fill up the tank and go. It also comes with a USB cable to make for convenient charging – you don’t need to worry about extra batteries, and can charge from just about anywhere.

The tank has a 2ml capacity and is made from durable Pyrex glass. The tank base also has an adjustable airflow valve, making it easy to tweak your airflow settings to match your wattage output for the optimum vape.

This kit is simple enough for beginners, but also impressive enough to satisfy more experienced vapers who just want a simple setup and aren’t particularly interested in customisation settings.

More about Innokin

Founded in 2011, Innokin quickly became one of the most respected innovators on the market. The company’s aim is simple; produce well-designed hardware that’s best in show for quality.

In just seven years the brand has amassed an impressive range of products and patents – they hold 71 for design, 61 processing patents and a further 40 patents for utility models. Alongside this are strict quality standards. The company holds ISO9001, ISO14000, GMP, CE, ROHS, and FCC certifications.

The JEM is further proof that the company is working at the top of its game – find this and everything else to vape in style at Vapouriz.

How to do Vape tricks

How to do Vape Tricks

Vape tricks are a great way to show off your skills and take your hobby to a new level.

When you're first starting out, doing tricks might seem impossible, but it's not as difficult as it looks. Today we're running you through a few classic tricks and giving you the tips you need to master them.

Your kit

If you're going to master tricks, the first step is to take a look at your hardware. The right hardware will make easy work of any tricks you'd like to try.

Understandably, MTL vape pens won't work for tricks - you'll need a box mod and ideally one that has a variable voltage setting. The faster you can heat your coil, the more smoke you'll produce - which is exactly what you're going to need for practicing tricks. For great tricks, you want at least 60w of power to get you going.

Next think about the coil. You want durable, thick coil that will heat up quickly and can take the pressure of heavy usage. Finally, consider your tank. A tank with adjustable airflow will also help you make more vapour. Tanks are now made with a maximum capacity of 2ml, so keep some extra juice to hand, too.

Your e-liquids

Understanding the two main ingredients in e-liquids will help you pick the right one. PG - Propylene Glycol - is the ingredient responsible for throat hit, which is important for MTL vapers but less-so for sub-ohm setups when you want big clouds for your tricks.

VG - Vegetable Glycerin - is the big ingredient you're looking for, and you want at least a 30/70 PG/VG split. Many vapers will mix their own e-liquids for tricks, or even go with a liquid that is 90% or 100% VG.

Think about nicotine too; particularly when you're starting out with tricks and practicing a lot, an e-liquid with zero nicotine is the best way to go. Otherwise you might end up getting what vapers refer to as "over-nic'ed", which might cause you to feel a little lightheaded.

How to do vape tricks

Vape tricks differ but many start with the same basic principle, so make sure you've mastered this first. Get comfortable with inhaling as much vapour into your lungs as possible and being able to release it slowly in a controlled way. Practice releasing vapour from your lungs into your mouth with your lips firmly closed, as well as breathing vapour through your nose. With the basics figured out you're ready to take on some popular tricks in style

Blowing O's

The smoke ring is a satisfying classic and one you can master without much work. Inhale, push the vapour slowly through your mouth with your tongue flat while your lips form an o-shape. Watch tutorial videos like this one to help you get this one right.

The Dragon

Some swear The Dragon is the easiest trick in the book, while others find it nearly impossible. To do it, you'll need to forcefully push the vapour out through both your nostrils and your mouth simultaneously. Keep your lips firmly closed in the centre, leaving two small pockets at the corners of your lips for vapour to escape out of.

Liquid Mist

This is a nice and easy trick with a great finishing effect. You'll need a glass, preferably filled with cold liquid (pints work great for this). Inhale, then touch your lips to the rim of the glass and exhale slowly into the glass. The vapour will sit on top of the liquid, and if you move carefully it when you put the glass back down it will sit there long enough for you to upload the evidence to Instagram.
