How to choose the best device

With so many vaping devices available on the market it can seem very overwhelming to those trying to quit smoking and transition over to vaping. However, there is something to suit every vaper level so choosing the best device is key if you want to be successful in your vaping journey. One bad experience could put you off and cause you to revert back to smoking.

Cigarette Style Kits Help

If your ultimate goal is to quit smoking, it is critical that you find a vape kit that will successfully satisfy your nicotine cravings so high nicotine content is key. A simple vape kit is also important to make the transition as easy as possible.  Cigarette style kits basically look like a cigarette making them very portable, quick to charge and simple to use. As it mimics the look and feel of a cigarette, it is an ideal choice for those looking to quit smoking and transition over to vaping. They feature a canister-shaped cartridge called a cartomizer that's pre-filled with e-liquid so you simply just screw this onto the battery pack and start vaping immediately. No fiddly buttons or features to deal with making this an easy option as well as one of the cheapest on the market.

Pod Mods


With so many complicated vape kits on the market offering a wide range of different coils featuring different ohms, e-liquids in various strengths and batteries offering different power levels, the choice can be overwhelming. This is where pod mods come to the rescue! Featuring pre-filled pods with a pre-installed coil makes pod mods simple to use and a hassle free option as no coils to change or e-liquids to top up! The pod contains an e-liquid that is perfectly matched with the power output of the device so guarantees you are using the correct e-liquid that's compatible with your device removing the need to guess what to buy! Simply remove the empty pod and replace with a new one. Pod Mods are a perfect choice for vapers looking to find a midway point between cigarette style kits and vape pens and also ideal for those new to the world of vaping.

Vape Pens

Vape Pens are an ideal choice for vapers looking to sample a huge array of flavours without being restricted by a more limited choice of pre-filled pods. With so many designs available ranging from simple, small and lightweight vape kits through to the more solid and chunky devices offering a powerful output, these have become a very popular style of vape kit due to the huge diversity of options available.

Box Mods

Now if you are a cloud chaser and looking to produce large billowing clouds of vapour, look no further than the box mods! This type of vaping is known as sub-ohm vaping and usually a technique that vapers move onto once they are well established at vaping. As this form of vaping uses lower strengths of nicotine, it isn't normally enough to fully satisfy the cravings of those trying to quit smoking so not normally chosen as a starting point for those starting their vaping journey.  Box Mods feature a more powerful battery within a stockier device, enabling the higher electrical output to vaporise thicker e-liquids and create fuller, denser vapour clouds. Box mods feature interchangeable tanks, coils and batteries allowing vapers to fully personalise their device so they can enjoy their perfect vaping experience.

Disposable Vape Kits

Disposable vape kits are a perfect choice for vapers looking for a simple device. This hassle free option enables vapers to start vaping straight away without needing to charge, fill with e-liquid etc. Once the vape juice has all gone, simply throw it away and start with a new one. Couldn't be simpler than that! The designs vary with some looking similar to a cigarette and others being more unique in style. The puff count can be pretty impressive on some disposable kits making them an economical option in comparison to a pack of cigarettes.

What devices work best for MTL vaping?

There are a wide choice of devices available ranging from vaping pens to pod systems that can be used with refillable or pre-filled pods. The more advanced box mods can also be used by making certain adjustments suitable for MTL vaping. This includes using a lower wattage of less than 15W and using a tighter draw which is enabled by the fact that MTL coils tend to be filled with more cotton. The mouthpiece on a tank designed for MTL vaping is usually narrower (510 drip tip) making it closer in feel to a cigarette. Airflow isn’t always adjustable on these tanks but when it is, it is best to keep this as low as possible otherwise you will just experience a large mouthful of heat!!

Why should I choose MTL vaping?

  • If you are transitioning from smoking cigarettes and are new to the world of vaping.
  • If you would prefer to be discreet when vaping opposed to producing large vapour clouds.
  • If you are trying to keep costs as low as possible as this style of vaping uses less e-liquids and doesn’t require such an expensive vaping device.
  • If you want to be able to use nicotine salts or high nicotine salt e-liquids as these are not advised when choosing DTL method.

What devices work best for DTL vaping?
DTL devices are completely the opposite of those best suited to MTL vaping. Features that are most important include a variable wattage, wide mouthpiece, sub-ohm coil and adjustable airflow.

  • Sub-ohm coil
    A low resistance sub-ohm coil is required to ensure the required higher wattage can be achieved.
  • Variable wattage
    DTL vaping requires cranking up the wattage high. The higher the power the bigger the cloud.
  • Adjustable airflow
    Keeping the airflow open allows more air to flow through the tank and down into your lungs which ultimately results in bigger vapour clouds. By adjusting this you can identify your preferred setting in order to optimise the flavour and cloud production.
  • Mouthpiece
    A wider mouthpiece (810 drip tip) is the best option as it allows a fuller inhale.

Recommendations for those new to DTL vaping
In order to ease yourself in gently to the world of DTL vaping it is best to start with a low power setting and restricted airflow. Over time your lungs will get used to holding large amounts of vapour in them and any discomfort that you previously experienced should reduce significantly.
