What you should know about the different types of e-cigarettes

  The first thing to know about the different e-cigarettes is that there are two types of e-cigarettes.

  E-cigarette: A handheld device powered by a lithium-ion battery and designed to simulate the sensation of smoking without burning. Nicotine options can be customized and range from 0% to 5%, with flavors ranging from tobacco to dessert to original.

  Cannabis/CBD e-cigarettes: Portable battery-powered or larger tabletop devices powered by a battery or heating material power source. These devices are used for CBD, THC or other botanicals, from dried herbs to concentrates.

  People also take other substances. A variety of herbs and vitamins are preferred; some daring people even choose to vaporize coffee. Many of these products and activities are borderline, but the devices used are no different than nicotine or cannabis e-cigarettes. –They just happen to be different substances that “work” in the device.

  There is an overlap between cannabis and nicotine e-cigarettes, just as the classic e-cigarette pen works in both areas. This could explain why it is the most popular type of e-cigarette in existence.

  Nicotine e-cigarettes

  While all nicotine e-cigarettes can be called “e-cigarettes,” the term is most commonly used for small devices that are similar in size and shape to cigarettes. But nicotine e-cigarettes are more than that.

  Electronic Cigarettes

  These are the smallest and simplest e-cigarettes you can find. Open the package and they are ready to use immediately. When you’re done, you can discard the device and use another one. These are ideal devices for travel or for the busiest among us who don’t have time to fiddle with these gadgets. The high nicotine content of the e-cigarette provides a satisfying wake up call, perfect for smokers who want to get into e-cigarettes quickly.

  Perfect for invisible vaporization


  Economical and practical

  Easy to use

  Disposable use increases waste.

  Flavor output is average.

  No refill required

  Electronic Pods

  Pod vapes are some of the most practical e-cigarette devices available. Cigarette bombs are usually two-piece devices, similar to e-cigarettes. One is a battery and the other is a replaceable, usually refillable cigarette bomb. pod vapes are usually affordable and very easy to use, while offering higher performance than most traditional e-cigarettes. They are also well suited for nicotine salt e-liquids, making them very effective nicotine delivery e-cigarettes.

  Very easy to handle.

  Practical Sizes

  Refillable or replaceable containers

  Button or drawing activated

  Ideal for stealth e-cigarettes

  The quality and performance of the device may vary greatly.

  Low vapor

  Charges batteries frequently.

  Box mod

  The Box mod is a larger and more powerful e-cigarette. The extra size usually means better performance and longer battery life, often in the form of an external e-cigarette battery. Most box mods come with settings and features such as variable power and even temperature control. The included canisters can be mouth-to-mouth lung removers or direct lung sub ohm canisters. The most common configuration of box module starter kits is a single cell module with variable power and temperature control with a mid-range sub-ohm tank.

  Many options are available.

  Higher Performance

  Longer running internal or external batteries

  Can be used with other tanks.


  Too advanced for beginners.


  Not very pocket friendly

  Supervised squonk beginner kits

  These are the most advanced e-cigarettes on this list. Technically a subcategory of the box mod starter kit, the squonk setup has become so popular over the last few years that it deserves its own category. squonkers offer a practical way to provide e-liquid to your atomizer. A typical regulated Squank setup comes bundled with a Squank-enabled cartridge module and a bottom-feeding RDA. The module is equipped with a squankable bottle that attaches to the atomizer deck via a shallow 510 and effectively acts as an external tank section.

  Because the bottle takes up the space where the battery is placed, the single-battery squonk module is roughly the same size as the dual-battery box module. As a result, most Squank kits use a single-cell configuration, but the dual-cell Squank can be used by those who don’t mind the extra bulk.

  Ultra High Performance Devices

  The RDA can be built to suit your needs.

  There is no need to give up

  Increase liquid capacity

  Basically turns a non-tank into a tank (extra liquid storage)

  Immersion wick provides a fresh flavor.

  Complicated; not for beginners

  Small parts that require follow up and maintenance

  Requires cleaning to ensure clean flavor performance.

  There are also cannabis CBD e-cigarettes.

  These vaporizers come in many forms. Similar to bongs, bubblers, bowls, tappers, and other smoking accessories, cannabis and CBD e-cigarettes are abundant. But, when it comes down to it, there are two main types: desktop and portable. Portable devices may be so small that they barely fit in your pocket, but they are still portable and the desktop needs to be parked at your session station.

  Tabletop vaporizers are usually the most effective option for dry herbs and waxes, but if you’re on the road, there are solid portable and pen e-cigarettes that offer all the benefits of this substance without the problems of smoke vaporization, both in terms of unpleasant odors and the negative health effects of inhaling smoke.

  CBD Electronic Cigarette Pens

  A CBD e-cigarette pen with replaceable refills is any type of e-cigarette pen that can be filled with CBD e-cigarette oil. It usually has a tank connected to a rechargeable 510 spiral battery. They offer a simple and convenient pen shape and are usually smaller and lighter than a regular mod and tank combination. Some are suitable for direct e-cigarette lung smoking, while others offer a tight mouthpiece for lung smoking.

  Low power

  Single use

  Low vapor

  and cannabis oil pens.

  A weed pen or THC oil pen is a relatively simple two-part electronic device for vaporizing THC/CBD oil or distillate. An evolution of the early vape pens, the weed vape pen is most commonly shaped like a writing pen – hence the name. Each weed pen comes with a small battery that heats the oil in the atomizer cartridge containing the wick and heating coil. This heating process turns the concentrate into vapor.

  In the past, THC oil was only available at cannabis dispensaries. Today, delta 8 cartridges are becoming increasingly popular. They provide the physical and mental stimulation of THC, but they come from cannabis rather than marijuana. This means that they are more accessible to a wider range of people who previously did not have access to cannabis products.

  Small and convenient

  Personal use for small meetings

  Great for stealth medicine or recreation.



  Low odor

  Easy to use

  Smaller batteries require more frequent charging.

  Not very advanced, but the price may be a bit high.

  Portable Cannabis Vaporizer

  A portable dry herb vaporizer is a small personal device designed to vaporize cannabis or legal high CBD strains. They have an internal oven that heats the cannabis at a precise temperature to produce vapor.

  Small and convenient

  For personal use when conducting small sessions with others.

  Great for stealth medicine or recreation.



  Low odor

  Needs to be cleaned.

  Benchtop vaporizers

  Some of the first vaporizers fall into this category. These devices are the power source for all e-cigarettes. They most often use convection heating, which means that hot air can thoroughly and efficiently extract all the cannabinoids like THC and CBD from the flower. desktop computers are probably the strongest e-cigarettes, but can also be turned down to the most comfortable temperature that the user wants. These e-cigarettes are self-contained heaters that roast the dried herb at a specific temperature to produce vapor. The vapor is then inhaled using a tube called a whip or a traditional vaporizer pouch promoted by the most famous vaporizers: Stoltz and Bickle Volcano.

  Which type of e-cigarette should you buy?

  This is a common question that is rarely answered for you. It is always a personal choice. What matters most is your needs, your budget, your willingness to repair electronics. Also, as superficial as it may seem, you should really think about the look and size of the device. If a large device doesn’t fit your lifestyle, you can effectively rule out half of the options. Of course, this holds true if you have no budget constraints or don’t care about portability.

  Bottom line: If you’re interested in using e-cigarettes as an alternative to smoking, then there’s always the perfect device for you! I hope this guide will get you closer to finding it.
