When you’re ready to savor the calmness of vaping synthetic nicotine, you’ll need to understand your vaping pen needs and wants. Maybe you need to figure out first exactly what a vape pen is and how it works to decide what kind of vape pen you should get.

How do Vape Pens work?

All electronic vaping devices work pretty similarly, even if they have different names, like e-cigarettes, vapes, vape mods, or vape pens. For simplicity’s sake, we’ll call them all vape pens.


A vape pen has three primary elements: battery, tank, mouthpiece. The battery powers the vape pen. The tank contains the liquid and heating element (coil). When activated by the battery, the coil heats the liquid until it turns into a vapor, which is then inhaled by you through the mouthpiece.


Not all vape pens are designed the same. You’ll find two dominant types: auto-draw vape pens and those where you need to push, hold, or click a button to release vapor. 

How do I use a Vape Pen?

How you use a vape pen is determined by the type you have. 


One type of vape pen is operated through auto-draw technology. This means you just inhale. The vape pen senses when you draw a breath and releases the desired vapor. That’s the easy-to-use option you find in all IGNITE vape pens. 


Other vape devices require a button to be pushed, held, or repeatedly clicked to activate the device and stimulate the vaping action.

What should I look for in a Vape Pen?

There are a few options to consider what to look for in a vape pen: 

  • Disposable or Reusable. The initial investment of a reusable vape pen is slightly higher compared to a disposable one. The reusable kind may be messier when it comes to changing cartridges and maintaining the battery-life-to-e-liquid ratio. 

A disposable vape pen, on the other hand, is ready to use straight out of the package. It is built so the battery will last as long as the liquids--no need to charge before you vape. And when the liquid and/or battery are done, you simply discard your vape pen.


  • Flavor. Vapes come in almost as many flavors as you can imagine. Choosing the right company matters, not only in variety but in quality of the flavor. Flavors are only good if they last. Check out the reviews. Learn more about how flavors are described and if the liquid lasts as long as the battery.

  • How Long it Lasts. Bigger isn’t always better. If you’re not a heavy or frequent vaper, you might not need a pen that lasts for 3,000 puffs. Or maybe you like to mix up the flavors with your mood. In this case, a few vape pens with a mid-range number of puffs in various flavors might be the better option. Or perhaps you know exactly what you want every puff to taste like. Then grab a vape pen with a higher count, or grab a vape pen pack and love on your consistent flavor.
  • Aesthetics. The way a vape pen looks and, more importantly, feels in your hand and between your lips matters--a lot. If you feel like you’re holding a cheaply-made vape pen, the experience is diminished. If, however, you know you’ve got a premium product, it feels awesome to hold and to vape. The entire experience becomes more luxe.
