Thinking about getting into the vaping hobby, or broadening your horizons with regard to the kind of vaping devices you use? It’s important to understand the options available on the market for vaping devices.

Here’s a quick look at some of the most common types of vaping devices you can find at your local vape shop in Scottsdale, AZ and what you should know about each to aid in your decision-making process.

Box mod

Box mods are larger and bulkier than some of the other options we’ll discuss in this article, thanks to their external batteries and sub-ohm tank. Most of these devices allow you to easily check ohmmeter and temperature settings, even allowing you to control the temperature and adjust the power anywhere from a range of 10 to 300 watts. For someone who craves the highest level of control over their vaping experience, the box mod is an ideal choice, especially if you also want a longer battery life. However, they’re not the most user-friendly option for beginners.

Vape pens

Vape pens have a tank, battery and some safety features that shut the device off after a couple seconds. Depending on the model you get, you may be able to charge the vape pen with a USB port. You can use it for either direct-to-lung or mouth-to-lung inhalation, and are able to vape up to 10 mg of nicotine at up to 80 watts. This is a highly portable option that will give you some great taste on bold flavors, and you’ll find the pens in a wide range of sizes and colors. However, they are prone to battery problems and leaks.


This was the first vape device to hit the market, and it’s one that most resembles an actual cigarette. The device does have a battery and cartomizer as well as a flavor cartridge, and is capable of handling up to 24 mg of nicotine. Some types of cig-a-likes have LED lights on the end to make it light up like a real cigarette. This might be a good option for people attempting to quit smoking and transition to vaping, as it’s easy to use, portable and very much like a real cigarette. However, if you want a long-lasting battery, you’ll want to look elsewhere.

Pod mod

A pod mod is a more updated version of the cig-a-like, and a good option for more experienced vape enthusiasts. They’re low wattage and use nicotine salt e-juices. They’re great for higher concentrations of nicotine, and are highly portable. However, they do not have a particularly long battery life, and they don’t produce as many clouds due to the higher nicotine content they take.
