Best Vape Pens

Vape pens have been around since forever. When vaping first burst into the scene, there were two kinds of e-cigarettes available for users – cig-a-likes and vape pens. Cig-a-likes are considered entry level devices designed to mimic the feel and ergonomics of smoking.

As for vape pens, these were offered as a more ‘advanced’ option, providing more power and customization at the cost of being a bit more bulky than cig-a-likes. The size difference between cig-a-likes and vape pens are substantial, but vape pens are still portable. Thus, users looking for a more advanced cigarette than their cig-a-likes aren’t sacrificing much in terms of portability.

While cig-a-likes will always have its niche in the market, vape pens too have their fans looking for a portable, customizable, and more powerful alternative. Below we have the best vape pens for users looking to explore the world of vaping more and upgrade from their cig-a-like starter kits.

Specifications

What's In The Box

One of the downsides of cig-a-likes is the lack of power from it. With the Vaper Empire V-Twist, users not only get more power, they can also adjust it to their liking. Variable voltage allows users to dial in their preferred output, from 3.2v up to 4.8v, to suit their taste. Cig-a-likes top out at 4.2v, and while this may be enough for some, there are those who’d like to push things up further.

Aside from variable voltage, the V-Twist also allows users to adjust the device’s airflow. From mouth-to-lung inhales to direct-lung inhales, the V-Twist caters to both styles of vaping, and everything in between. More airflow results in more clouds, while a restricted airflow gives users a similar draw to analog cigarettes. Combined with a 900mAh battery, the V-Twist is a vape pen capable of giving you your preferred vape, all day long.

Each V-Twist Series Starter Kit includes one variable voltage 900mAh battery, one clearomizer tank with adjustable airflow, a USB power cable, one Vaper Empire Australian USB power adapter, and a user manual.

What is a vape pen?

vape Pens

 

A vape pen is a small e-cigarette device that’s shaped like a pen – hence the name. It has a rechargeable battery that powers up the coils in the atomizer or tank. A step-up from cig-a-likes, vape pens offer more power than the former yet still remain as portable. Being larger than cig-a-likes, you also get more battery life out of vape pens as well as the option to swap out atomizers, cartridges, or tanks.

Why would I choose a vape pen?

If you find cig-a-likes too weak for your taste and want something more powerful and give you some degree of customization, vape pens are a better fit.

The different types of vaporizer pens

Though they all look similar, there are various types of vape pens. There are some that utilize THC and CCBD vape oil instead of e-juice. There are some that can be fired by a button, while some are draw-activated (wherein you simply inhale through the mouthpiece and the device turns on). Some have an adjustable power output, though these tend to cost more. Others have a constant voltage/wattage while some has its output depend on the charge remaining in the battery.

back to menu ↑

How do vape pens work?

Vape pens work very similarly to cig-a-likes wherein a battery is activated, whether via button or inhale, and the coil in the atomizer is heated up. This in turn turn the ejuice into vapor, which is then inhaled through the mouthpiece. Of course, once the battery runs out of power, you’ll need to charge it and when the ejuice inside the atomizer tank or clearomizer runs out, you’ll need to refill it.

Anatomy of a vape pen?

Like all e-cigarette devices, vape pens have three main components: the atomizer, the battery, and the mouthpiece.

Atomizers can take on various shapes and capacities, but its function remains the same: to vaporize ejuice into vapor.

The battery can be draw-activated or fired with a button, but its main purpose is to provide power to heat up the coil in the atomizer.

Finally, the mouthpiece, which may not seem like much, but without which you won’t be able to inhale the vapor with. Mouthpieces come in different shapes, sizes, colors, and materials, but what it does is to act as the bridge between the device and yourself.

Frequently Asked Vape Pen Questions

When buying a vape pen, know that you are entering a much more advanced world of vaping that is slightly different from cig-a-like starter device. With vape pens, you are able to customize your vape experience by adjusting the power, swapping out atomizer heads and refilling with your own e-liquid.

As with any new experience, there will be questions.

Lets look at some frequently asked questions about vape pens.


How do you refill a vape pen?

With cig-a-likes, once you run out of e-juice, you change the whole atomizer with a new one. With vape pens, you simple refill it and you are good to go.

However, the question remains, how do you refill?

Well, not all tanks are created equal nor refilled the same. But the general idea is you unscrew the top cap, insert the nose of your e-liquid bottle into the refill hole, and slowly fill it with e-liquid.

Once full, you simply screw back the top cap and you are good to go. Now, some tanks might require you to remove the whole glass part and refill from the bottom, but the general idea is the same.


When and how do I replace the atomizer?

Atomizers last a good while before needing a replacement. But eventually, they do wear out and you’ll need to replace it with a new one.

You’ll know when your atomizer needs replacing when the vapor starts to weaken and the flavor starts to wane. You can still use it, though the experience won’t be as satisfying.

If your atomizer stops firing at all is another sign it needs replacing.

Now how do you replace it?

After draining the tank or clearomizer of its e-juice, you can remove the tank and unscrew the atomizer head. This is usually located in the middle part of the tank. Screw in the new atomizer, place a few drops of e-liquid on the atomizer, and replace the tank.

Fill the tank with e-juice and let it seep through the atomizer’s cotton for a few minutes. Once the new atomizer is settled with e-juice, you can start vaping again.

For more information read our full guide on when to change your atomizer.


How long will my Vape Pen’s battery last?

There are two answers to this question, one that pertains to daily use and another that means the whole life span of the battery.

When it comes to daily use, the battery can last a day or so of moderate vaping for batteries with 900mAh or more. Chain vapers might find themselves recharging at least once in the middle of the day.

Though larger mAh batteries, one with 2000mAh or more, can last you a whole day of chain vaping as long as you don’t do sub-ohm builds.

As for the whole life span of the battery, expect it to last a good year or so. After the first year, you might notice some drop-off in daily battery life, and after two years, this drop off might be too massive to make it usable.

Of course this all depends on how often you use the device. I have had batteries last me for more than three years because I cycle them with other batteries.


What kind of maintenance do I need to do?

With every device, maintenance is required to ensure it lasts a long time. With vape pens, a weekly clean up is ideal, though monthly will suffice.

Batteries must be kept clean and dry always. There will be times when e-liquid will spill or leak onto the battery. When this happens, wipe it off completely. Remove the tank if possible and wipe dry the whole battery.

For the tank, dismantle it and wash it all with running water. You can soak them in vodka too if you wish to remove all traces of flavor from it.

Don’t get the atomizers wet though since they have cotton in them that loses its efficiency when wet. Unless you are using rebuildable atomizers, keep the atomizer heads away from water.

These questions all correlate to which Vape Pen model is right for you, while only you can truly answer them, let us help you by breaking it down.

Choosing a Vape Pen Guide

How to choose the right Vape Pen

Choosing the right vape pen is always a personal thing. Whatever you hear from others don’t always match with what you want or need. That said, the best we can do is guide you through the process.

There are a ton of vape pens out there and choosing the right one for you might seem like an impossible task. Aside from the aesthetics, you also need to consider the power you need, the amount of customization you want, the ergonomics, and of course, your budget.

There are vape pens that cost upwards of $100, while some less than $30. Some affordable vape pens perform better than the more expensive ones, while some are worth every penny.

Vape pen features to consider

If you just need something where you can refill the ejuice, there are devices for that.

If you need variable voltage, there’s a vape pen for you. If you want to go sub-ohm, you can check out the more advanced models. There are vape pens that can do one thing well, while there are some that do all things better. Price matters of course.

If you need a vape pen that does all of the above, and then some, then be prepared to shell out more.

In a nutshell, it helps to do a little research first about the devices you are interested in.

Why pay extra for variable voltage if you won’t need it?

Why save a few bucks for a simple device when you know you’ll need more. The best advice we can give is to enjoy the journey. As long as it keeps you off cigarettes, then more power to you.
