WHAT IS A VAPE PEN?

With the explosion in popularity of vaporizers there can be a lot of things to keep up on. It used to be that vaporizer users were only for e-juice and those who wanted to “chase clouds”, those days are gone as dry herb and concentrate oriented vaporizers have become almost widely as used as e-juice mods. With discretion being the aim for concentrate or dry herb vape users, vape pens are a great way to get desktop performance in the palm of your hand. But what are vape pens, really?

A vape pen is a compact, pen-shaped (you probably could guess that) vaporizer aimed at on the go users. Vape pens have become one of, if not THE, most popular form of vaporizer, coming in a multitude of forms from industry leading manufacturers like Storz and Bickel, Grenco, Dr. Dabber, Firefly, and Pax Labs. As far as heating goes vape pens are usually conduction vaporizers, meaning that your dry herb or concentrate is in direct contact with the heating element. While this does sometimes diminish the purity and flavor of your substance, it certainly is more discreet, affordable, and easier to use than desktop units.

In terms of construction vape pens are simple: they generally consist of a mouthpiece, atomizer, and vape battery. Each of the elements of a vape pen can vary from unit to unit. The length and width of a vapor pen mouthpiece decides the resistance level of each draw taken by the user. The atomizer will feature different materials and design forms that also affect vapor production. Battery wise vape pens can utilize precision or preset temperatures, a wide range of power capacities, and single or multiple button controls. All of these components are easily detached during cleaning, or if you want to swap parts out. Vape pens generally have a standard 510 threaded connection, so you can swap batteries out with different atomizers or prefilled cartridges.

WHY CHOOSE A VAPE PEN?

Vape pens offer the user unprecedented discretion when it comes to enjoying dry herbs or concentrates. There is no uncomfortable, awkward feeling that you might blow a cloud in someone's face, and the smell of your product is greatly reduced thanks to the material being vaporized as opposed to combusted (combustion causes smoke). The shape of the pen vape also allows it to be easily slipped into your purse or pocket, and can blend in with your office pens if you’re one of those people with a whole mess of pens in a mug on their desk. On top of its size, vaporizer pens also look more like e-cigarettes than a big boxy mod, adding to its incognito-ness.

The vapor pen fits into a commuter lifestyle as well as casual situations, allowing you to vape e-juice, concentrates, or dry heb anywhere, anytime. Do not let the small size of these pens fool you however, vape pens can pack powerful vapor production inside their interior. Vape pen atomizers with double (or triple) heating rods create huge clouds of vapor should you so choose to go cloud chasing. Paired with the batteries these devices can unleash a lot of power, and the best part is, the operation is very simple: just a few clicks of the button and you’re ready to go.

TYPES OF VAPE PEN

There are three types of vape pens: dry herb pens, wax pens, and e-liquid vapes. Some of these can do both dry herb and concentrates, with provided attachments.

Dry Herb Vape Pen

A dry herb vape pen vaporizes cannabis. Herb vape pens like the Atmos Jump and the G Slim Vaporizer for Blends will perfectly vape your herb without taking it to the point of combustion, therefore conserving you herb and allowing small loads to go a long way.

Wax Pen

Wax pens take your vape session to a new level by being able to vaporize waxy concentrates and oils. A wax vape pen offers a discreet way to dab on-the-go. Most of these pens are pen shaped, but some like the Vapor Slide 2 in 1 or the Persei Vaporizer have more powerful mod batteries that allow large clouds to be produced, while bringing maximum flavor to the user. This type of vape pen can range from affordable, to high-priced depending on the model and your performance needs. A wax vaporizer pen puts the power of a dab rig or desktop vape, like the Volcano, in the palm of your hand.

E-Liquid Pen

These are the classic vape pen, made for vaping a liquid solution containing concentrates from dry herb. E-liquid can contain cannabis, nicotine, or neither, and at varying potency. This is why e-liquid vapes are helpful in quitting smoking, as smokers can use an e-juice vape pen to wean themselves off nicotine addiction by gradually reducing the percentage of nicotine in their cartridge. A vapor pen for e liquid, like the Quickdraw M1, will be much easier to operate than beefed up mods that may be intimidating to beginners.

HOW VAPE PENS WORK

Vaporizer pens can feature a multitude of atomizers that vaporizer material using a heat element, which is usually a rod with coils around it. The atomizer acts as the vape pens “heating chamber”, which features a single, double, or triple rod, or a bucket-like coilless design. Vape pen atomizers can heat up much faster than desktop units, which makes vaping on the go much more simple. Loading a vape pen is easy, the material is dabbed in the chamber, where it sits directly on the coils. In other words, most vape pens are conduction vaporizers, rather than the convection units.

Convection vaporizers heat your concentrate or dry herb with hot air that is drawn through the vaporizer from the heating chamber, while conduction vapes directly heat the material on the surface of the actual heating element. Those who value flavors and purity over everything should find a portable vape pen with convection heating, or snag a desktop vaporizer as they tend to boost flavor tasting a more than portable units. Vape pens are better suited for decent sized hits on-the-go. All that said, a vaporizer pen produces much purer vapor than the smoke that is produced by water pipes, rolled goods, and pipes.

Once your vape is loaded, the user clicks the single button interface, which in turn heats the coil inside of the atomizer. Depending on how much you spent, your vape could have one temperature, or multiple preset options. Most all pen style vaporizers will have click controls, some pens have 5 quick clicks that power the vape on, and then three clicks will toggle the temperature settings (if they have them). Others, just simply holding the button down will heat the pen. With these kind of vapes, the vaporizer pen coil heats your material to just the point of combustion, giving you smoother, smokeless hits. Vape pen heat up times is usually under 1 minute.

VAPE PEN TIPS


-Its important to recognize exactly what kind of vape you’ll be buying. Most vape pens are for wax concentrate or e-liquids (or both). If you’re a dry herb oriented user, check out portable vaporizers, or double check to make sure your vape pen is compatible with your dry herb.


-Be careful with your coil. The inside of the atomizer can be fragile, so be extra cautious when cleaning or loading your vape pen. Replacement atomizers do exist, but keeping the coil the same brand as the rest of the unit is optimal for performance.


-When it comes to atomizers, size matters. Deeper dished atomizers are built for those who want to vape throughout the whole day and not have to worry about constantly loading their pen. Shallower atomizers are better for moderate users who might just enjoy the at home vape pen.


-If you want to get a good vape pen, you might have to pay a little more. The good thing is, vape pens don’t necessarily cost that much at the high end, $100-$200 will put you in the upper end of vaporizers pens.


-If you’re not an out-of-the-house vape enthusiast consider snagging a desktop vape instead of a pen. They deliver smoother, purer, and more flavorful vapor than smaller vaporizers do.
