What Vape Should I Buy ?

As a new vaper, it might be difficult to choose a suitable vaping device among varied choices.

It’s personal preference, and it depends on many things, like how much and how often you did/do smoke, and the reason why you vape.

E-cigarette comes in varied shapes and features, and that can be confusing. Hope the basics below will bring you a few steps closer.

What is Vaping ?

Ecigarettes come in many sizes and shapes, but they all have the same basic components –

a battery unit, a tank or cartridge or pod, an atomizer, a charger & a mouthpiece.

They all work in the same basic way - the ejuice is quickly heated and converted to an aerosol using a battery powered heating coil, the person then inhales the resulting aerosol or vapor.

Using an ecigarette is known as vaping.

How Many Types of Vaping Devices ?

There are a variety of models available:

Cigalike – Cigarette-like e-cigarettes. They’re the simplest vaping devices, just screw together and vape. If you want to vape with as little vapour as possible, that would be the option (though they aren’t great for flavour). Less battery life & throat hit than others, running costs may be higher due to disposable cartridges.

Pod/tank System – They are simple use as well, you just pop in a cartridge and puff it like a cigarette. Some are pre-filled disposable pods, while some are refillable that supplied empty, which means that they can be refilled with your choice of e-liquid (you just fill up a new pod when it stop producing great vapour). It also suits beginners. Often shaped like a USB stick or a pebble.

Tube mod/Vape pen – Marker pen or small tube Appearance. Refillable with varied e-juice. Beginner-friendly.

Mod Box – Most of this kind is box-shaped. Normally they come with display screens, buttons, settings & features such as variable wattage or temperature control. They get higher performance & longer lasting power & are compatible with many other tanks. Complicated but have more room for customization, more suitable for cloudchasers and e-cig hobbyists.

Pod Mod – Similar design of a pod and higher performance like a mod. A bit easier to use than a mod box.

What You Mostly Spend on Vaping?

When you are starting vaping, you need to get an e-cig device & some e-liquids. Then you are ready to go.

The running costs is varied between vape kits, for pods and mods, the main cost is buying replacement coils & e-juice.


Generally, cigalikes and pods are easier to use, and the vapor production is less than mods.

If you are new to the vaping community, to start with the simplest option, such as cigalikes or pods, might be a good beginning.

When you are more experienced and are ready for an upgrade, a box mod/pod mod can be the one to consider.


If you are a light smoker or are only looking for something simple, then a cigalike or pod may be the option.

For heavy smokers/cloudchasers, you might need a mod/pod mod to satisfy you best.
