Vaping pens, as the name suggests, are pen-shaped vaporiser devices. These vape pens have a compact cylindrical shape that makes them convenient to carry and perfect for on-the-go vaping. Due to their compact size, you can keep them discreetly in your pocket. The size can vary, and they can be as slim as a pen and as wide as a cigar. 

Most of these vaping pens are either pre-filled or have cartridges.

Vape pens are the most popular choice of vaping as they are safer than smoking. Most vapers know about vaping pens. But if you have just entered the world of vaping, here is a little guide to help you buy vape pens.

Rechargeable and disposable vape pens

You can choose from two types of vape pens: rechargeable and disposable. The rechargeable pens are usually battery-powered and can come with atomisers/heating chambers. These pens are costlier but, once bought, can be reused several times. Cartridges are readily available to replace the empty e-juice or oil cartridge.

A disposable vape pen is neither rechargeable nor refillable. Most vape pens come with a pre-filled tank and a coil. It is a single unit and is suitable if you feel refilling is a hassle. Also, disposable ones are cheaper than rechargeable ones. You can choose the vape pen as per your preference. 

Push-button and draw-activated vape pens

Draw-activated vape pens get activated when you puff on them. As they don’t have any buttons, you don’t need to turn them on and off every time you use them. They are pretty simple to use but have less functionality compared to the ones with push-button. Push-button vape pens need to be started before use. In these pens, you can adjust the voltage or activate the pre-heat mode. 

Battery 

Lithium-ion batteries help power most rechargeable vape pens. However, it would help if you chose a vaping pen according to your vaping habits. For example, if you vape quite often and want your vape pen to last several days, you may consider buying a slightly bigger battery. 

Charging vape pens is not a problem, and it is only essential if you don’t want to charge them often. Another thing you should know is that lower resistance coils use more power but create more flavour and vapour. 

Design

Next, consider how slim or portable you want the design to be. Stainless steel or carbon fibre vape pens last long and are high-quality. If you are looking to buy a vape pen with coil and rod, go for stainless steel or titanium coils and quartz rods. This might increase the cost but will be much safer to use. 

Keep all these points in mind when buying a vape pen. However, there are many options these days that suit people of all budgets. So, you need not worry about that. The next step is to learn the proper way of using a vape pen. 

Tips to use a vape pen for CBD

Pre-filled CBD oil cartridges are convenient and suitable for vaping. So, before using them, remove the rubber seal on top of it and screw it on your device. If you have chosen a Treetop Hemp Co delta 8 disposable vape pen, you must open it and start vaping. 

Don’t rush; take a small puff and wait for a few minutes to gauge its effects. If you have a pen with a voltage setting, you should start with the lowest setting to avoid burnt hits. Ideally, the voltage range should be 3.3–3.8 volts for cartridges. 

Cartridges with ceramic coils can handle more voltage than older-style cartridges. If you plan to carry your vape pen while travelling, make sure you keep it charged. Likewise, make sure you keep your vape pen in an airtight and safe storage case to use for a longer time.
