2023-07-24 15:12:31

Whether you are choosing your very first e-cigarette or you already vape and are looking to upgrade your kit, it's a good idea to familiarise yourself with the various types of vape kit available.

We've broken these down into the three main types of device below, with information on how they're constructed, who they are suited to and how to get started with them. 

But first, if you're completely new to vaping, here's a little background information on the world of vaping.

A Brief History of E-Cigarettes

As explained in further detail in our History of E Cigarettes article, electronic cigarettes (also known as e cigarettes, e cigs, vapes or vape kits) have probably been around for longer than you think. 

The first electronic cigarette was actually invented in 1963!

Their popularity has increased hugely over the last few years with technology, devices and flavours rapidly advancing.

 With so many different vape devices now available and so many different terms used to describe them, it can be difficult to know where to start.

You may have heard other vapers mentioning all sorts of mysterious words and phrases such as 'sub ohm' 'PG/VG' and 'box mods' and want to find out more. 

Or, you may want to just get on with it and find something simple and easy to use. Whether you're choosing a vape kit for the first time, or looking to upgrade your current e cig, 

read on to see all the different devices available and help you find out which e cigarette you should buy.

If there's any terms or phrases that you don't understand, check out our E Cig Glossary for definitions.

What To Consider When Choosing A Vape Kit

When choosing a vape kit, consider how much you want to spend and what you want to get out of your e cig. Are you happy to pay more for your initial kit if it provides more vapour or more flavour choice? 

Do you want an e cigarette that's inconspicuous and easy to use?

Cigalikes are the simplest, cheapest e cigs available and as the name suggests, are designed to look and feel similar to a traditional cigarette. 

It's because of this that they are one of the most popular devices for beginners.

They consist of a small rechargeable battery and a 'refill' - a disposable cartridge containing e liquid. They are really easy to use and offer discreet vaping with a subtle amount of vapour.

Most Classic vape kits will come with the tank, 1 or 2 coils, a battery and a charging cable.

Coils usually last around 7 to 14 days but may last more or less time depending on your style of vaping and the e liquid you're using.

You will then need some e-liquids to use with your kit. Our 50/50 E Liquid range is highly versatile and will work brilliantly with any classic or MTL style vape kit. 

We do not recommend using e-liquids with more than 50% VG in classic style kits
