Years ago new vapers had little choice other than to use a basic cigalike device. But nowadays you can find a vast array of devices, which means you can select the best vape starter kit which best meets your needs - and style! To help you make the selection, we explain the different types of e-cig starter kits available in the UK.
Small and discreet, pod vapes consist of a battery unit and a pod that clicks into the battery. There are two types of pods: pre-filled pods, which are best for people who want maximum convenience, and open pods, which are best for people who want to experiment with different e-liquid flavours. Pod systems have boomed in popularity in recent years because of their simple and compact operation and stylish design.
Cigalikes look and feel like regular cigarettes, are light in the hand and usually come with auto-draw - i.e. it you simply need to inhale to activate the device. They come in two parts: battery and cartridge (also known as a cartomiser). These are best for people who want the simplest device possible and a device which looks and feels like a regular cigarette.
Typically featuring a simple, single button operation, these compact devices come with all the hardware you need to get started with in one device. Very often the tank is clipped into or inserted into the battery section. These can be filled with the e-liquid of your choice, with a vast array of flavours and strengths available. Do note that pod systems are also AIO devices.
A step-up from all-in-one devices, the separate ‘tank’ and ‘battery’ format allows for greater customisation with adjustable airflow and power settings on some models. These are the best option for power, a longer battery life and for larger clouds of vapour. Also known as mod systems.
