What are the Vape Kits for adult smokers?

What are the different types of vape kits?


For adults who would otherwise continue to smoke or use other nicotine products, vaping is a 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. Vape kits may make it easier for those adults who want to switch from smoking to vaping. Usually, the kits’ bundle contains all the equipment that you would need when switching from smoking to vaping.


Vape Pens


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 a wide range of flavours to choose.  E-liquids  have a limited shelf-life, but it varies as it depends on how they are stored and on the e-liquid composition.


Pod Vape Kits


Pod vapes are the newest generation of vaping products. They are known for being easy to use, maintain, and transport as they have integrated pods instead of tanks. The e-liquids (and sometimes, even the mouthpiece) are contained in the pod, which can be easily replaced with a new one. The pod vape is also known for being able to deliver a convenient experience, making it easy to use for adult smokers who are looking to switch to vaping from burning tobacco.


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, which is why they may be preferred by more advanced adult users.


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. In addition to the massive clouds that users can get from a sub ohm vape kit, users can also enjoy various aromas and flavours from the vapour.


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 everything that is needed for adult smokers who are beginning their journey of switching to vaping - such as the device, mouthpiece, batteries, or chargers, and even an assortment of accompanying e-liquids in various flavours and/or nicotine levels. There could be various kinds of vape kits on the market, that can be useful for those adults who are familiar with vaping but just looking to try different types of vapes.


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 the best vape kit to buy? How do I choose the best e-cigarette?


The right vape kit for you depends on your preference. We recommend also considering what point you’re at in your journey of switching from smoking to vaping - if you are just beginning or have more experience with vaping already. Some adult smokers may prefer to start their switching journey with cigalikes, vape pens or pod vapes as they can be easier to use. We also recommend going with a branded, non-modified device for your first vape kit, as they are more likely to be higher in quality and come with clear instructions, a warranty, and customer service assistance.


What is going to happen to vaping in 2022?


The industry of vaping and smoke-free devices will continue to see a lot of innovation in 2022, as adult smokers who would otherwise continue smoking or using other nicotine products seek new options that deliver a better way to consume nicotine. This means the number of options available to adult users will grow in 2022, with a likely focus on providing better flavours, customization, and product quality - allowing adult smokers to find the smoke-free alternative that suits their preferences.


Can I find e-cigarettes on IQOS Palestine?
