What types of e cigarettes are there
How they differ from each other and what is the better choice
What are the different types of vape kits?
For adults who would otherwise continue to smoke or use other nicotine products, vaping can be one of the smoke-free alternative. Vaping is a different experience from smoking cigarettes. Cigarettes produce smoke because they burn tobacco, but with vapes, the vapour is produced because the e-liquid evaporates when it is heated.
Today, vape pens are one of the popular vaping options out there. As the name implies, vape pens are pen-shaped and small, making them easy to carry. The simple design also provides the adult user with an easy-to-use setup. Vape pens are typically refillable systems with tanks. They have a built-in battery and are usually activated with a button on the device, which heats the coil element, vaporizing the e-liquid. A vape pen kit generally includes all the elements that you would need to experience vape pens, including the vape pen itself and the different e-liquids that are made to pair with the vape.
Does e-cigarette liquid ever expire?
As mentioned, vapes work with e-liquids. There are e-liquids with nicotine and without nicotine, and range of flavors to choose. E-liquids have a limited shelf-life.
Pod Vape Kits
Pod vapes are the newest generation of vaping products. The e-liquids (and sometimes, even the mouthpiece) are contained in the pod, which can be replaced with a new one.
Box Mod Vape Kits
Box mods are vaping devices with advanced customization options and are recommended for those who have some experience with vaping. Most box mod vape kits will come with a variable wattage, battery-powered device and a tank. Unlike vape pens or pod vapes which prioritize ease-of-use and portability, box mods are larger in size and prioritize power and customization, giving vapers more experience. The powerful batteries on box mods can accommodate larger tanks and a variety of coils, which is why box mods are known to produce thick clouds of vapour. However, using box mods isn’t necessarily an intuitive experience.
Sub Ohm Vape Kits
If you’ve ever seen people blowing out huge, thick clouds of vapour with a vaping device, it is likely sub ohm vaping. With a box mod vape, more advanced users can attach a sub ohm atomizer that can allow them to vape with a low resistance level - less than 1 ohm. Ohms are a unit of measurement that determines how much resistance is applied to the electrical signal traveling from the battery to the atomizer.
Cigalikes Vape Kits
Cigalikes are a type of vape that look a lot like cigarettes in size, shape, and often have a light at the end that resembles the lit end of a cigarette - but the resemblance stops there. Cigalikes are rechargeable, smoke-free vaping devices, and have been around since the emergence of e-cigarettes and vapes on the market. E-liquid goes into a pre-filled chamber which screws directly into the battery, and starter kits often come with the device and refills.
What is included in a vape kit?
Vape kits usually contain the device, mouthpiece, batteries, or chargers, and an assortment of accompanying e-liquids in various flavours and/or nicotine levels.
Are e-cigarettes and vape kits the same?
E-cigarettes and vapes both refer to the same category of smoke-free alternatives to cigarettes for adults who would otherwise continue to smoke or use other nicotine products. Therefore, yes, e-cigarettes and vape kits are the same. It just comes down to how you personally want to refer to them!
What is a better choice compared to continued smoking?
If the adult smoker is looking for cigarette-like satisfaction but wants to switch to better alternatives, he/she may consider switching to IQOS. IQOS provides cigarette-like satisfaction.1 Studies1 showed that the satisfaction of those who switched completely to IQOS is comparable to those who continued to smoke cigarettes. In addition IQOS has many advantages, compared to cigarettes.
Switching completely to IQOS is a better choice to your health than smoking.2
