While personal vaporizers and electronic cigarettes aren’t new to the market, the sector just recently exploded into an industry worth billions of dollars. Such a surge in popularity, a lot of people are wondering if vaping devices or electronic cigarettes are options that will suit their lifestyles. However, because of all the new and innovative products on the market today, it can be quite difficult to know which product to choose. In this article, we will be briefly exploring the different types of e-cigs available today.
“Cig-A-Likes” or Minis
Minis are designed to look like tobacco cigarettes. They are not only lightweight but also very discreet and can either be disposable or rechargeable. Disposable ones are available almost everywhere and are often the first vaping experience for people just starting out. Rechargeable minis, on the other hand, are more robust and come with prefilled cartridges that attach to the device’s rechargeable battery unit. Because they are small, battery life is quite short. So, if you are considering purchasing one, it is advisable that you also buy a charging case, so you can continue enjoying your vaping on-the-go.
Vape Pens or Basic Personal Vaporizers
Also known as an e-Go or BPV, the vape pen is a mid-sized vaping device that’s often slightly larger than cigars and are some of the fastest selling vaping devices on the market today. These devices have a significantly larger e-liquid holding capacity — e-liquid is the flavoured liquid converted into vapor — and longer-lasting batteries. BPVs come in an assortment of styles and colours, and the great thing is that they are socially-acceptable in most of the places where tobacco cigarettes aren’t welcome. Celebrities like Sarah Silverman, Snoop Dogg and Leonardo DiCaprio are known advocates of the personal vaporizers.
Advanced Personal Vaporizers or Mods
Mods or advanced personal vaporizers are for serious vapers only. These huge devices often hold large tanks which can store a significant amount of electronic-liquid. At the same time, their size allows them to carry powerful lithium batters and can present various design aspects that allow users to customize their vaping experience. Some of the bells and wells of mods may include liquid control, manual control, digital displays, and variable voltage.
The e-cigar is one product that has gained lots of attention this season. Cigar enthusiasts are known to be quite particular especially when it comes to their choice of tobacco. However, a lot of them are now making a switch to the realistic-looking e-cigars that deliver taste and nicotine without odour. Electronic pipes are another great way to enjoy vaping.
Why Switch to Electronic Cigarettes?
If you smoke tobacco, e-cigs may be a very good alternative for you. Here’s a look at the three main advantages of vaping as compared to smoking:
Odourless and Smokeless. The smoke that tobacco produces is dangerous for persons living or working with the smoker. At the same time, the smell stays on the smoker’s breath and clothing and seeps into furniture, rugs, and curtains over time. It may even residues on ceilings and walls. To make matters worse, stale smoke smells horrible, and since smokers are used to the smell of tobacco, they may not even smell it. Vaping is virtually odourless and smokeless.
Cost. Thinking about it, vaping costs less than half the cost of maintaining a cigarette smoking lifestyle.
Choice. There’s only one flavour when it comes to tobacco tobacco flavour. E liquid is available in an assortment of flavours from raspberry chocolate mint to lemon meringue pie and sweet cantaloupe daiquiri to butter popcorn. You also can choose the level of nicotine concentration you want from low to medium to high or you could go for nicotine-free liquids.
