The Best UK Vaporizers

Vaporizers come in all shapes and sizes and generally speaking are one way or another the most common vape device out there. They can be as cheap or expensive as budget allows, with their being a very large gulf between what would be termed a personal or shisha style vape pen and the elite super-modded models. Correspondingly vaporizers can be as easy to use or as complicated to set-up as you like! Most people tend to slowly graduate from basic cig-likes to basic vaporizers and then a good all round personal vaporizer, but it really is a case of finding a happy medium between quality/performance and price.

What's Different With Vaporizers Than Cig-Like E Cigs?

What's Different With Vaporizers Than Cig-Like E Cigs?

Whatever the quality of the vaporizer there's inherent differences between what we can generically call vaporizers and cig-like e cigs. While both styles produce vapour when inhalation pressure is applied to the mouthpiece, vaporizers differ because they almost always depend upon a self-applied e liquid being used rather than a cartridge based system (often tied to the manufacturer of the electronic cigarette). This allows for a great deal more freedom when it comes to selecting flavours. Also vaporizers can often be upgraded by using different tanks (always check compatibility!) whereas cig-like e cigs cannot.

Aren't Vaporizers Too Much Hassle Though?

Aren't Vaporizers Too Much Hassle Though?

This depends very much on your outlook. When well configured and maintained even a cheap vaporizer will produce a decent vape, often at a better value and sometimes quality than even a premium cartridge based unit. The downside is that they do need to be configured and maintained! Premium vaporizers can produce absolutely incredible vaping that's a world apart even from basic vaporizers let alone electronic cigarettes - check out the reviews of the PAX 2 or Apollo V Tube series to get an idea of what we mean. Most people willing to pay for a device of that quality are quite happy to spend a little more time configuring, cleaning and looking after such a premium piece of kit.

I've Heard That They Always Break - Is That Fair?

I've Heard That They Always Break - Is That Fair?

Not really, but basic vape pens aren't designed for a long life. Batteries will eventually wear out especially in cheaper models, which is why aiming for a superior model with a high powered battery can actually be more economic in the long run with also a more satisfying vape. Clearomizers, atomizers/coils and occasionally tanks will also wear out but are usually not very expensive to replace. When buying a middle of the road vaporizer it's always a good idea to look at the battery first, as besides super-premium tanks these are usually the most expensive parts to replace - even for very cheap models.

What's The Main Advantages Of Using Vaporizers?

What's The Main Advantages Of Using Vaporizers?

  • There's a massive spectrum of products so it's always possible to find something that matches your needs and budget. Likewise, there's tens of thousands of e liquids with thousands of manufacturers too!
  • It's a million times better than smoking. Investing even in a super-elite vaporizer will be a massive saving than smoking cigarettes, with the added advantage that it's infinitesimally better for your health. Really it's a no-brainer!
  • It can be as disposable/occasional a pursuit as you like, or a genuine hobby. A good comparison would be like someone who's really into their stereo set-up. Some people are happy with one level, whereas others need and strive for absolute nirvana - likewise with vaporizers some people find comfort easily, others always want something a little more!

Are There Any Disadvantages To Vaporizers?

Are There Any Disadvantages To Vaporizers?

  • Taking the step towards sub-ohm and high wattage vaping can become expensive and quite technical even though there's always advice out there. Remember also that as a rough rule the better the vaporizer the more liquid and atomizers/coils you're going to get through. Basic models need less care, but the trade off is in the quality.
  • Regardless of price some models are much better than others! This cannot be stressed enough, always read thorough reviews of a vaporizer of any price before investing in it. Just a small increase in price can in the best instances lead to a much better experience, and occasionally even the budget lines beat some of the big boys too!
