Fact: Cigarettes are Not Vape Pens
Return to Vaping Blog

Vapor Store AllentownElectronic cigarettes are far too repeatedly confused for Advanced Personal Vaporizers (APVs) or more ordinarily referred to as “Vape Pens.” The producers and consumers of vaping devices want you (and lawmakers and media) to know that there is a fundamental difference between the products.


What an E-Cigarette is.


Let’s start with what an e-cigarette’s goal is. E-cigarettes were established as an alternative to smoking regular cigarettes without the use of tobacco. This promised a safer method for receiving nicotine into the body since traditional cigarettes rely on burning tobacco and inhaling the smoke to accept nicotine. E-cigarettes heat a nicotine liquid to convert it to a vapor that the user then inhales.


They have restricted flavored 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 produce much more vapor with less nicotine and more flavor. Many consumers start with e-cigarettes and eventually find their way to vape pens and mods for a better, more “satisfying vape.”


Vape devices have a heating portion and a chamber in which materials like dry herbs, cannabis, oil, wax, or e-juice can be created into vapor. Thus, vape pens and mods have much more control and variety. It’s no wonder that with the surge of mod sales, tobacco companies making disposables want mods gone all together.


The choice is yours, but do realize that there are key variances between electronic cigarettes and vape pens/mods. One is high in tobacco and known to be hazardous toward your health, while the other allows you to have further control over what goes into your body and provides increased flavor.
