What sort of Vape Kits and E-cigarettes are available in the UK in 2024?

Vaping has come a long way over the last few years, and the market is more diverse than ever. Below is a brief overview of the different types of vape kits available now.

Cigalike Vape Kits

As the name suggests, cigalike kits are designed to look and feel like tobacco cigarettes. Cigarette-style vape kits are easy to use and, rather than being refillable, take prefilled flavour cartridges known as cartomizers or refills. Cigalike brands such as OK Vape give you a very similar experience to smoking a cigarette.

Vape Pen Vape Kits

The term “ vape pen” normally refers to a vape kit consisting of a refillable tank and a rechargeable battery; they are often slim and shaped like a pen, but not always! Vape pens offer slightly more customisation than cigalikes, as you can use your choice of e-liquid (flavour and strength). A popular recent kit would be the Oxva Xlim Pro launched in 2023.

Refillable Pod Vape Kits

Refillable pod mods use replaceable pods that contain either a built-in or removable coil. They are designed to be easier to use than vape pens as they adopt a secure magnetic connection between the pod and battery instead of a tank with a screw mechanism. They have few features and are compact, appealing to those new to the world of vaping and those wanting to upgrade to something simple.

Pre-filled Pod Kits

Prefilled pod kits use replaceable e-liquid pods containing liquid and a coil, so there's no need to refill your tank or switch out your coil. Prefilled pod mods are the go-to for many, thanks to their compact design and ease of use. A notable example of this would be the JUUL 2, which is an upgraded version of the classic JUUL refillable pod kit. or the Gold Bar Reload, launched in 2024.

Sub-ohm Vape Kits

Sub-ohm vapes (sometimes called cloud kits) are more advanced vaping devices that are capable of outputting huge amounts of power; if you’ve ever noticed someone exhaling gigantic clouds from their kit, they were probably using one of these! Using a sub-ohm device requires a working knowledge of battery safety and Ohm’s Law, so it’s best to do some reading before investing in one.

Heated Tobacco Vape Kits

Heated tobacco kits are a recent addition to the vaping industry. They are devices that use tobacco sticks and heat them electronically at a lower temperature than conventional cigarettes you would burn with a flame. Heat-not-burn products, eg the IQOS eliminate some health risks that are associated with smoking a lit cigarette.

Frequently Asked Questions about Vape Kits

What is a vape kit?

A standard vape kit is usually an electronic cigarette - this usually consists of a battery and tank that allows you to fill it with e-liquid. But you can get many types of vapes, such as pod mods, sub-ohm kits, cigalikes, and many more.

What is the best vape kit for beginners?

The best vape kit for beginners requires little to assemble and maintain - for example, a disposable device such as the Crystal Bar or Lost Mary or a pod device like the Riot Connex vape kit where the pods simply 'snap' on with magnets - it couldn't be easier! You can get closed pod mod systems, which use cartridges prefilled with e-liquid. This type of device is suitable for beginners as it eliminates the hassle of messy refills and fiddly coil changes. A great example of this is the Riot Connex Pod Kit which uses magnets to attach replaceable cartridge-like flaovured pods to the batter. You can also get refillable pod mod kits, which use pods with built-in coils but require filling with your e-liquid. These can also appeal to beginners who like to experiment with different flavours but wish to keep the set-up as minimal as possible.

What vape kit should I buy?

It depends on what your purpose is behind vaping. If you're a smoker trying to quit, you might prefer a cigalike model as the experience is as close to smoking as possible. If you like to perform tricks, you might find that a cloud kit or sub-ohm device is better suited to your needs. If you simply want to experiment with different e-liquid flavours, a standard vape pen should cater to your needs. For instant 'plug and play', go for a disposable vape! Here at The Electric Tobacconist, we have a large selection of devices on offer that you can browse through.
