Vaping Pen vs. E-Cigarettes

Vaping Pen vs. E-Cigarettes vs. JUUL

October 6, 2021

What is the difference between a vaping pen, e-cigarettes, and JUUL? Here is a lowdown on how they differ: Vap pen vs. E-cigarettes The terms vape pens and e-cigarettes are often used interchangeably, but the two are distinctly different devices. Electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, as they are popularly known, imitate the look and feel of a real traditional cigarette. They feature a one-piece unit that you use until it runs out, then you throw it away. Vape pens, on the other hand, comprise a rechargeable battery and a refillable tank. This means that you can use them repeatedly without disposing of them, as all you need to do is to refill the tank. You can even mix and match the different parts and pieces and continue filling them with your favorite e-liquid. Some of the other ways the two differ include: Aesthetics As mentioned above, e-cigarettes mimic traditional cigarettes, so they are preferred by those that like the feel of holding a cigarette in their hands. Vapes can look more like fountain pens or even square. They are larger and more robust; hence they don’t give the traditional cigarette feel. Working In e-cigarettes, the battery is attached to a heating element known as an atomizer and a cartridge that holds the nicotine and other flavorings and liquids. In most e-cigarettes, the atomizer and cartridge are combined into a cartomizer. The battery then powers the atomizer to vaporize the liquid and the liquid contents to create the ultimate emission. Vapes work almost similar to e-cigarettes, but instead of a cartridge, they have a tank that holds the e-liquid. To use the vape pen, you have to push buttons then inhale, but it’s not the case with automatic e-cigarettes that lack buttons. Cost E-cigarettes are a low-cost alternative to traditional cigarettes, while vapes are advanced and often cost more. Flavors Since e-cigarettes use pre-filled cartridges, they don’t accommodate a wide variety of e-juice flavors, and it’s tricky to add more flavors, so you are limited in the flavor department. The most common flavors with e-cigarettes are tobacco, menthol, and mint. Vape pens have a wide variety of flavors, including menthol, beverages, fruits, tobacco, and many others. You can even mix and match e-juices to create a personalized taste. Battery Both e-cigarettes and vape pens have rechargeable batteries, but the batteries are usually large in vape pens, so they last for a much longer time. Vape Pen vs. JUUL The JUUL is a new entrant in the nicotine delivery system, and it’s raffling many feathers—in a good way. JUUL refers to an e-cigarettes brand, but it differs from the other e-cigarettes in the market in a variety of ways that include: Size and shape: Unlike the large e-cigarettes, JUULs are small and resemble a USB drive. Pods: JUULs have a pod system used to refill liquid into the system. Nicotine salts: JUULs use nicotine salts that allow the user to inhale larger nicotine content. USB chargers: JUULs come with specialized USB chargers used for charging. Like e-cigarettes, JUULs differ from vape pens in a variety of ways that include: Design JUUL has a […]

Vape Pen Blinks

What Does It Mean When A Vape Pen Blinks?

September 7, 2021

The LED indicator gives you an idea of what is going on inside your vape pen. When your vape pen has a problem, the LED indicator will change colors, pulsate or blink. Not all vape pens are the same and it is important to understand what your light indicator means on your device. While sometimes the reason behind the blinking is obvious such as low charge, improper installation, or connection problem, in some cases, the vape pen starts to blink for no good reason, which can be confusing. What does it mean when a vape pen blinks? If you are asking this question, you should know that vape pens have different blinks that mean different things. Here are some of the common blinks that your vape pen can have and their meaning: Vape pen blinks 3 times. If your vape pen blinks multiple times, it could mean you have a connection problem between the battery and the heating oil. The pen will also blink multiple times when you have a short circuit in the tank. Sometimes the pen will blink three times without the tank. If this is happening to your pen, you might be having a battery problem. If the LED blinks when connected to the tank, it might be due to a poor connection. To fix the blinking problem, ensure that the heating oil and battery connection is clean and secure. If the blinking goes on, try using the battery with other coils/tanks to see if the problem is gone. If the problem persists, you have to replace the coil/tank. If you do the replacement and there is still flickering, the problem is most likely with the vape pen battery. Is your vape pen is still under warranty? Get in touch with the dealer for a replacement. Vape pen blinks 4 times Some pens will blink 4 or more times when the atomizer resistance is lower than 0.1 ohms or higher than 2.5 ohms. Due to the lower resistance, the battery will automatically shut down the output to protect the pen. All you have to do is wait, then put the pen on again. Vape pen blinks 5 times In most cases, your vape pen will blink five-time or more times immediately after inhalation or usage, and it’s often a sign of a low battery. To fix this issue, you need to charge your battery. You should note that even when you screw in your battery for charging, the LED will still blink, indicating that the charging process has begun. Some high-end pens will blink five times as a warning that you are over vaping. When you press the fire button for a long time (over 10 seconds), the power output will shut off then the white light will flash 5 times. This is meant to protect you from over vaping, and all you need to do is wait and vape again. Of course, do it for less than 10 seconds this time around. Why is my vape pen flashing 10 times? The vape pen will sometimes blink 10 or more times due to plenty of reasons. The […]

Best 510 Thread Battery for Cartridges

July 23, 2021

The 510-thread battery is the most popular battery type for vaping on the market. This means there are many terrific batteries out there, but it also means there are also unscrupulous manufacturers peddling substandard products. These can be a waste of your money. Both genuine and substandard 510-thread batteries come in different shapes and sizes. Some are rectangular, and others square. Others are small such that you can easily carry them discreetly around, while others are large, thus require you to have a bag to put them in. To avoid spending your money on the wrong battery, you should take your time to research and find the best battery. What are some vapes that come with top-quality 510 thread batteries? Well, below, we list a few good ones that are available. Some of the best ones being: Dial oil cartridge battery vaporizer kit Featuring a 500 mAh lithium-ion battery, the Dial oil cartridge battery vaporizer kit is everything you need for a simple and better vaping experience. The Dial has a unique look with a big dial in the middle. Hence, its name, the Dial. You use the Dial to control the battery’s voltage output when heating your oil. The Dial has 21 different settings that can be increased or decreased in 0.1 Volt increments ranging from 2.2 Volts to 4.2 Volts. When you are new to the kit, it might be challenging to tell what voltages correspond with the various temperatures, but it’s easy to get the hang of it with time. To be on the safe side, when you are starting, keep the Dial to the middle range around 3.4 Volts and find your ideal temperature from there. The Dial weighs only 33 grams. This makes it easy to carry around. Since it’s slightly under 2 inches in height, it fits in your palm so that you can use it discretely in public. The top portion is removable, giving you a better view, but it’s recommended you keep the top attached as the Dial looks better that way. You also keep the internal parts protected when you do this. Although it lacks buttons and magnetic adapters, it’s compatible with most 510 threaded cartridges using the bottom-fed airflow, so you can have peace of mind that it will be compatible with the cartridges you’re most likely to purchase. To use the Dial, ensure that it’s fully charged, then attach your oil cartridge. Once a connection has been made, a blue LED light will flash, and you should proceed with setting your preferred voltage setting. To activate it, inhale, and multi-colored LEDs lights will come up indicating that the device is active. The kit also comes with a lanyard for easy carrying and a micro USB charger for easy charging. To charge it, you only need to connect the Micro USB into the USB wall adapter or any other USB device and let it go. Verdict The Rokin Dial looks elegant, and it’s lightweight, compact, simple to use, caters to oil with its wide range of low voltage settings, and—icing on the cake—it’s compatible with most 510 cartridges. If you […]
