I’m sure you have many questions:

What should I use to vape? An e-cigarette? A vape pen? A dry herb vaporizer? What’s the difference?

Hold up. One second.

Both e-cigarettes and vaporizers are great tools for vapers to use. Whether you are a beginner or one of those advanced guys who blow out those cool clouds of vapor, It’s up to you to decide which one you prefer because each one uses a different material to work.

Let’s get started!


Vuse e-Cig

Vaping has become a phenomenon all of its own in recent years, and vapers are now given thousands of options to choose from when they look to purchase a vaping device.

One of these choices is an e-cigarette. But what exactly is an e-cigarette, what kind of vaping experience can one expect from it and what are the benefits and drawbacks of using an e-cigarette.

Well, let’s take a look.

An e-cigarette is very similar to a traditional tobacco cigarette in size, shape, and weight. E-cigs typically contain three parts which include the battery, cartomizer and a mouthpiece.

When one takes a draw through an e-cigarette, a LED light at the top lights up which would resemble the burning tobacco from a traditional cigarette. The cartomizer in the e-cig holds the e-liquid used, and they are usually meant for one time use where after you finish, you would dispose and insert a new one.

If you are a smoker looking to quit or if you only want to simulate smoking a cigarette without poisoning your lungs with the harmful byproducts produced by smoking, an e-cigarette is a perfect option.

Another great thing about e-cigarettes is that since they come with preloaded cartridges, you don’t have to worry about making a mess refilling it with e-liquid. Just unscrew the empty cartridge, dispose, and screw on a new one.

Some downsides to using e-cigarettes are poor battery life, having to stick with using cartridges from the same manufacturer, and it is sometimes difficult to tell when the cartridge is getting low.

Some vaporizers on the market today are outstanding (a personal favorite is the PAX 3). There are vape pens, which use concentrates (such as wax), dry herb vaporizers, and even vaporizers that combine everything into one!

Vaporizers come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and can be used with different materials. As well, they are also highly customizable depending on what you want to get out of it.

Typically though, vaporizers come with a battery, atomizer, clearomizer, and a mouthpiece.


What can you expect from a vaporizer?

Well, one can expect to see:

  • Longer battery life
  • Use of different materials such as wax, dry herb (cannabis) and e-liquid
  • Customization with the ability to swap out parts to fit your needs
  • Transparent tank (vape pens usually sport this feature, and it’s great for seeing how much wax, herb or e-liquid you have left
  • Refillable (of course)

The only downside to using a vaporizer would be that they look nothing like an e-cigarette so if you wanted to simulate that. In that case, you might want to go with a vape pen which are smaller in size and a bit more sleeker.

What’s the bottom line?

Deciding whether to use a vaporizer, e-pen, or a e-cigarette depends solely on your preferences.

If you want to simulate smoking a cigarette and have a smaller budget, than an e-cigarette might be the best option for you.

However, you have a bigger budget, like customization, and like to use different materials for vaping; then a vape pen or dry herb vaporizer would be a great investment.

Try them out and see which one you like, they are all great options!
