If you have recently decided to turn to vaping, you may be unsure where to begin. With so many different types of devices, kits, liquids, etc., knowing where to start can take a lot of work. Here are a few essential points about vape kits and how to choose the best one for you.

Choose A Vape Kit Or E-Cigarette

Types of Vapes

Firstly, there are three main types of vapes you will come across, with some subtypes that aren’t important right now. These three types are disposable vapes, pod vapes, and refillable vapes.

1. Pod

Pod vapes are another common type of vape, especially in the vape kit industry. Whether it be Alt Vapes or another brand, pod vapes are vapes that have a pre-filled tank of liquid that you slot into a device which is fitted with a rechargeable battery.

Pod vapes are a step up from disposable vapes, and while you need to buy new pods when the old ones run dry, you don’t need to replace the entire device, meaning they are often much easier on your wallet.

2. Disposable

Disposable vapes are designed to have a set nicotine strength, with a limited amount of puffs and a limited battery life. They are incredibly affordable, but they often run out much quicker than expected, especially if you are using them to quit smoking.

3. Refillable

Refillable vapes are devices that have a rechargeable battery and a refillable tank. These devices don’t require you to change a pod, but instead, you can simply buy a bottle of e-liquid and refill your device when needed.

These devices are regarded as the best way to vape, and while you are able to save money by not having to buy new pods, these devices are typically more expensive and have more parts that require replacement, such as coils or tanks.

Mouth-to-Lung Vaping

Another thing you need to consider is the two different kinds of vaping methods. Firstly, mouth-to-lung vaping is a style of vaping that most closely resembles the sensation of regular smoking.

Most disposable vapes and pod vapes offer MTL vaping, meaning these are the best options for those looking to replicate the smoking experience, without the cigarettes.

Direct to Lung Vaping

If you are someone who wants a ton of flavor out of their vape and massive smoke clouds, then DTL vaping is for you. While not necessary for many smokers, DTL vaping is perfect for those who want to elevate their vaping and flavor experience.

Pre-Made vs D.I.Y Liquid

Another consideration that you need to be aware of is the difference between pre-made and DIY e-liquid. Pre-made liquid is what you fill on the shelves of every vape store, coming in a massive variety of flavors and strengths. It is important to note that some vape manufacturers create their own liquids, and you sometimes you can’t use any other liquids, due to the makeup of the liquid and how the device is designed.


On the other hand, you can make your own e-liquid as many vape stores sell the individual ingredients to do so. The benefits of this is you can make large quantities for an affordable price, and you can adjust the strength, viscosity, etc, and change your vaping experience.
