Vape devices of all kinds

Posted On January 05, 2019 by Mikin Soni

Vape devices of all kinds

When you look for buying a vaping device in the market, chances are you might get utterly confused. This is because there are a lot of vaping devices having different styles and types of use. Different devices address different needs.

To understand the types of vaping devices, first and foremost you need to know about the components of a vaping device.

Components of a Vaping Device:

1. Vape Tanks:

Vape tank is a part of a vaping device that contains all the e-liquids, wicks as well as the heating coil that heats the liquid and converts it into vapor. It is very essential to keep these e-liquid tanks clean.

2. Vape Coils:

This is a part that is either replaceable or it’s a section of wire that is made into a spring-like coil shape. These coils are then made into wicks by covering them with absorbent materials like cotton, to absorb the e-liquids.

3. Batteries:

Batteries power the device. It can be an integrated battery or a replaceable battery.

4. Vape Mods:

This is the part that holds the batteries and carries the power to the atomizer.

Types of Vaping Devices:

Vaping devices saw serious advancements and developments in their designs, with time. They had quite an evolutionary growth.

The devices that you find in the market today, have the latest features and technology. However, this doesn’t mean that the first-generation devices are useless.

It all depends on what works best for you.

1. Cig-a-likes (First Generation):

These devices are known as ‘cig-a-likes’ because they look like a traditional cigarette. They are smallest in size and are the first-generation e-cigarettes. It is light in weight and therefore it is easy to use on a daily basis.

Their batteries last for about 4-5 hours on a single charge and they can be easily recharged within half an hour.

They use single-use, replaceable single-use cartomizers that can be screwed and unscrewed at the end of the device.

This device is ideal for those who are using a vaping device for the first time.


  • They act as a smooth and easy transition point for those who are planning to shift to vaping from smoking since they are easy to understand.

  • They can be used without any fuss. They are easy to use and operate which makes them a very attractive alternative to traditional cigarettes.

  • It doesn’t cost much and on buying a vaping kit, you’ll get all the things and equipment that you’ll need.


  • Since this is a basic model, you might not get as satisfied as when you use a vape pen or a vape mod having advanced vape tanks.

2. Vape Pens (Second Generation):

These devices are also known as Tank Style Vape Pens. These types of devices have seen a massive momentum in the vaping crowds.

This is because they eliminate the use of cartomizers. Instead, they use refillable vape tanks. This tank is detachable so that you can charge the battery whenever you need to.

You can refill your e-liquid in the vape tank as many times as you like. A very clear advantage of this device is that you can make your own mix of vape juice.

However, they are a bit complex than the cig-a-like type. It’s because while buying a starter kit, you will have to also order a bottle of an e-juice. You can select the strength and size of the vape juice according to your liking.

Also, vape pens will need tank replacements once the juice starts to burn. You can also rebuild the tanks by replacing just the atomizer in the tank, if it’s possible.


  • Vape pens give more powerful puffs, provide good amounts of vapor, have longer battery life and perform better than cig-a-likes.

  • They are portable and hence, can be used anywhere.

  • Lower costs in the long term since you can rebuild your e-liquid tanks.

  • The refillable tanks can be used to create your own blend of vape juice.


  • These devices are not as powerful as the sub-ohm systems.

  • The initial cost may be high since you have to purchase e-liquids and have battery backup.

3. Sub-Ohm Systems:

These systems include Vape Mods and Pod Mods of all the kinds. They are very powerful systems.

These systems have a lot of features where you can set them as per your liking. This is the reason why they are complex are complicated vaping devices. Many of them might look like a vape pen, and many of them are comparatively bigger and bulkier in size with loads of features where you can set the voltage.

These devices are mainly used to produce maximum vapor production. That’s why these devices are known as ‘sub-ohm’ systems. They produce 30-40 times more vapor than any normal vaping device.


  • It is very obvious that these vape mods are the most advanced and complicated systems out there for vaping. Therefore, they deliver high performance when it comes to vaping.

  • High volume of vapor production and intense flavour.

  • Some of them come with various features and controls that allow you to control the power depending on the e-juice you’re vaping.

  • Some of them can save tank-specific settings into the system.


  • It can be challenging for some to understand the complicated settings of these vape mods.

  • Portability can be an issue as some of them may be hard to carry around.

  • The large volumes of vapors can offend or create some problems when you vape in public.

These are the types of vaping devices that you can use. If you are new to vaping, devices like cig-a-likes are the best choice for you. For those of you who are not fond of vaping large clouds of vapor, you should go for vape pens. But if you are interested in vaping large and dense clouds of vapor, sub-ohm systems are made just for you guys!
