Should you buy a mod vape or a vape pen? May 06 2014, 2 Comments

For someone new to vaping, choosing which type of vaporizer to purchase can seem confusing. If you're like most new vapers, your decision will be narrowed down to one of the following types: vape pen or a box mod.


Thanks to their simple design and ease of use, vape pens have been exploding in popularity lately. Vape pens are perfect for those who are new to vaping and want something that can simply be plugged in and used with minimal setup. They are widely used by people who are looking to quit smoking, as some of them are compatible with variety of nicotine e-liquids.

Mod vaporizers are for vapers who want to take things to a whole new level. They offer greater options for people who want to customize their vaping experience. The different power options tend to produce larger clouds, making mod vapes ideal for those who want to blow clouds that can even rival those produced by smoking a hookah (seriously). 

If you're new to vaping, I'd recommend buying a kit that includes both the box mod and the tank. Sometimes newbies are a bit confused by all of the different types of tanks and start to freak out. If you buy a kit you'll know that the included tank works perfectly right out of the box. Here are some I'd recommend for beginners:


Generally, most novice vapers will start with a vape pen, and once they learn more about vaping they tend to upgrade to a mod. Of course, you don't have to follow this path. The learning curve for a regulated mod isn't too steep (but you'll want some more experience before using a mech mod) and many new vapers actually start with a mod right out of the gate. 

On the flip side, some people buy a vape pen and are perfectly happy with it as it helps them to meet their goal of quitting smoking with minimal hassle, and they aren't interested in nerding out about the latest features in the world of mod vapes. Either way is up to you.

I'm sure I'm leaving out some information. Be sure to let me know in the comments section what helped you decide whether to buy a pen-style vaporizer or a mod.
