Vape Pens 101 | All you need to know about the Vaporizer Pen

Posted November 21 2016
Vaporizer pens are one of three main styles of vaporizer along with Portable Vapes (or handheld vapes) and desktop (or tabletop) vapes. Obviously a vape pen is handheld and therefore portable yet it is distinguished from other handheld units given its form factor.
Arguably the most popular style of vaporizer don’t assume that all vape pens are created equal. Vaporizer technology has improved by leaps and bounds over the last five years. That said, there are some very clear pros and cons when choosing a vaporizer pen over a bulkier handheld unit or a traditional tabletop vaporizer. Vapor Town USA is committed to helping you make an informed decision so view the overview below as your first step in finding the perfect vape for you.

Vape Pens | What to consider?

1. Vapor Pen Materials

Dry herb, wax/concentrates and e-juice (e-liquid) are the most common materials compatible with vape pens. It may sound obvious but it is important to know which material you will be using before making a decision. There’s nothing worse than finding out an order you place online isn’t compatible with your preferred material until after your pen has arrived. All of our vape pens clearly describe the materials they work with in the product description. Some pens work with just herb or just e-juice. Many work with both concentrates and dry herb with the use of separate cartridge attachments. If you’re unsure which units work with what material do not hesitate to reach out.


Vape Pen2. Quality of the Vaporizer Pen

Finding a quality vape pen has as much to do with who you buy from as it does the brand and model. Be sure to only purchase vape pens from reputable dealers who will honor warranties and have a good relationship with vaporizer manufacturers. The quality of vape pens has improved drastically over the last five years but we still recommend caution. The market is flooded with overseas knock offs and fly by night manufacturers looking to cash in quick. Vapor Town USA works with premium manufacturers to ensure only quality products are sold and all warranties are honored.

3. Affordability of Vapepens

This comes after quality. As with most things you get what you pay for. While there are vape pen options under $50, do not expect the same experience you would get from a slightly more expensive unit. Durability and vapor quality per dollar spent is one way to look at the issue of affordability.  We will help you stay within your budget and we work to offer competitive prices on all of our products. With that in mind, are you looking to buy several $30 vape pens (including replacements) or are you looking for one high quality that will last? Whatever you decide we’ll be here to give you an honest assessment of your options.
