Fact: Cigarettes are Not Vape Pens
Return to Vaping Blog

Vapor Store South LoopElectronic cigarettes are far too frequently confused for Advanced Personal Vaporizers (APVs) or more commonly known as “Vape Pens.” The producers and consumers of vaping products want you (and lawmakers and media) to understand that there is are major variances between the devices.


What an E-Cigarette is.


Let’s start with what an electronic cigarette’s goal is. E-cigarettes were created as an alternate to smoking old-style cigarettes minus the presence of tobacco. This ensures a healthier option with receiving nicotine into the body, because regular cigarettes rely on burning tobacco and inhaling the smoke to receive nicotine. E-cigarettes operate by heating a nicotine liquid, which converts into a vapor that the user then inhales.


They have limited flavor selections and can really only be found in gas stations or convenience stores.


What an E-Cigarette is not.


An e-cigarette is not a vape pen. Vape pens or vape “mods” are able to provide much more vapor with decreased nicotine and better flavoring. Numerous consumers begin with e-cigarettes and ultimately find their way to vape pens and mods for a more “satisfying vape.”


Vape devices have a heating element and a chamber where materials like dry herbs, cannabis, oil, wax, or e-juice can be converted into vapor. Hence, vape pens and mods provide further control and multiplicity. It’s no wonder that with the escalation of mod sales, tobacco corporations manufacturing disposables want mods gone all together.


The option is yours to choose, but do understand that there truly are crucial differentiations between e-cigarettes and vape pens/mods. One is high in tobacco and widely understood to be dangerous toward your health, while the other allows you to have increased control over what goes into your body and provides more flavor.
