Vape pens are devices that let you vape a variety of substances. Vaping is the process of inhaling airborne e-liquid vapor from an electronic cigarette or personal vaporizer, which is often referred to as a vape pen. When you vape, it produces an aerosol and usually doesn’t contain tar or other toxic substances found in smoke from traditional cigarettes.

Vape pens are popular because they produce less odor than cigarettes and because they can be used for either medical or recreational purposes. Some vape pens can be filled with cannabis oil to help with medical conditions such as cancer, nausea, or chronic pain.

The following section will explain the different types of pen vaping devices and how they work.

What is a vape pen?

First thing you have to know is that a vape pen doesn’t contain tobacco or nicotine—it’s an electronic device that uses a special concentrate called e-liquid to generate vapor or smoke (depending on what type of vaping device it is). The liquid inside the vape pen usually includes vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol and sometimes nicotine. These substances are usually combined in a 50/50 blend called VG/PG, which allows for the best possible result.

The vape pen will heat up the e-liquid to its boiling point, which creates the vapor that users inhale. The first vape pens looked like pens, but now there are many models that look like traditional cigarettes, cigars and pipes. They are often disguised as these smoking products to help users with quitting smoking or going out in public with their vaping paraphernalia.

To evaporate the e-liquid and create vapor clouds, a heating coil is used as a wick to absorb and evaporate e-juice on a small metal screen or wicking material. These coils can be found in atomizers, cartomizers, clearomizers and tanks of the vape pen.

There are many different types and models of vape pens available. These include:


They are the most basic form of a vape pen, as well as the most common. They contain a wick coil (similar to a basic cigarette) inserted inside of an atomizer or cartomizer tank that holds e-liquid. When heat is applied to the atomizer (the device), it heats up and vapor is released through the wick in the coil. Atomizers are most commonly used in cigalikes and are the most convenient, least expensive and user-friendly. If atomizers break or aren’t working, a new atomizer can be purchased for under 15 dollars.


Also called clearomizers, cartomizers consist of an atomizer with a wick inserted into it and an e-liquid tank attached to the bottom that holds e-juice. The cartomizer has the advantage of holding more vape juice than an atomizer does, but less juice can make a cartomizer less efficient at producing vapor. Some users have complained about dry hits when using carts. Cartomizers are probably the best choice for beginners who don’t want to have to worry about burning out coils and other technical issues.


Cigalikes (like the original Blu eCigs and NJOY King) are vape pens that are shaped like traditional cigarettes. They contain both a battery and e-cigs, which make them compact and convenient to carry around, but they tend to produce less vapor than vape pens that use larger tank systems because they generally have less space for bigger coils and reservoirs. Some users have complained about cigalikes being hard to hit when their batteries die or if their e-liquid runs out.


Clearomizers are pre-filled with a mixture of e-juice and e-liquid in a tank. These tanks allow for bigger coils that produce more vapor. Some users have complained about dry hits when using clearomizers. Clearomizers can be found in larger sizes to accommodate larger coils that produce more vapor, but they generally cost more than clearomizers.

Dry burn:

Dry burn is an issue with some vape pens where the heating coil dries out without producing vapor. This is usually caused by overuse or because of the device not having enough liquid for the heater element to operate properly, but it can also occur after using your device for a few days. The best way to solve this problem is to allow your device to cool down, remove the battery for a few seconds or minutes, and then reload your e-juice.


Dripping is when e-liquid is applied directly onto the heating coil of a vape pen using a pipette (dropper), which allows you to put just enough e-juice on the wick of the coil and generate more vapor than you could get with other vape pen methods. The advantage of dripping over other methods is that more vapor can be produced, but it has a few risks associated with it that some users don’t like.

How do a vape pen work?

Vape pens are designed to be used with tiny tanks that are called clearomizers. They hold the e-liquid and the coil that is used for vaporization. The coils can get shorted out if they are not cleaned in time, and this could cause a burnt taste when you vape or even damage the heating element of the vape pen itself. Even though it’s not complicated, it’s still better to acess the articled tagged for cleaning your vaporizer.

How long does a battery last?

There are some types of batteries as the battery is an essential part of every vape pen, it powers the device and allows you to use it without plugging it into an outlet.

Many vape pens have a built-in battery. This means that you can charge it whenever is necessary and use your device right away without having to worry about charging batteries every day. In most cases, this will give you a vape for at least a couple of days without having to charge it too much, which is a great benefit for users who are on the go.

Most rechargeable batteries come with various mAh ratings, which stands for milliampere hours, or how many times the battery can be charged before it starts losing its energy or its battery life becomes shorter.
