Beginners Guide to Vaping Gear 2019 Edition

You want to know more about the best vaping gear for 2019, but you aren’t sure where to start.

In this simple guide, we’ll acquaint you with the different types of vape rigs that are available, and we’ll help you pick out the best vaping gear for your purposes.

What Types of Vaping Gear Are There?

In general, all vape rigs follow the same basic principles: They all contain batteries, atomizers, and drums, and they all vaporize vape juice that contains nicotine, CBD, THC, or no active ingredient whatsoever.

With those similarities out of the way, however, it’s important to point out that there are significant differences between the various types of vape rigs on the market in 2019.

Disposable vs. Refillable

First of all, some vape rigs are disposable while others are refillable. While disposable vape rigs might be easier for beginners to work with, these types of rigs are wasteful, and they aren’t at all customizable.

Button-Activated vs. Draw Activated

Furthermore, some types of vape rigs activate when you press a button, but others activate when you inhale on the tip.

Whether or not a vape rig is disposable makes no difference in this regard; some disposable vape pens are button-activated, but some high-end vape mods activate when you inhale.

Different Types of Rigs

Now that we’ve covered some of the general differences in the various types of vaping gear, it’s time to get down to the nitty-gritty and deliver details on the three main types of vaping technology on the market in 2019:

1. Vape Pens

Vape pens are the most similar to cigarettes. These types of vape rigs are slim, streamlined, and they can snugly fit in any pocket, purse, or backpack.

Some vape pens, called cigalikes, look just like cigarettes, but others might be bright, colorful, or covered with intricate designs.

While most vape pens are disposable, some might have refillable cartridges.

In the early days of vape pens, many of these rigs were rechargeable even if they were disposable, but these days, disposable vape pens generally have just enough battery life built-in to last you the length of the internal cartridge.

2. Vape Pods

Vape pods are similar to vape pens, but they have a much squatter shape.

While some vape pods are disposable, these types of vape rigs are much more frequently refillable, which means you can try out multiple types of vape juice in the same pod and keep it in your pocket for months or even years.

Even though most vape pods are around the same size as vape pens in terms of cubic centimeters, their altered shape makes these vape rigs seem smaller.

Like vape pens, vape pods are available in a lot of different colors and designs.

3. Vape Mods

Vape mods take the cake when it comes to customizable and super-powered vape rigs.

Technically, any vape rig that you can take apart and customize is a vape mod, but this term usually refers to a large type of vaping gear that includes a rectangular section housing the battery and atomizer and a long, thin cartridge sticking out of the top.

Vapor Clouds

If you want to blow the biggest clouds possible, a vape mod is the right choice for you. However, you probably shouldn’t try taking on a full-on vape mod until you have some experience behind a vape rig.

Vape mods are notoriously complicated, and while they provide great results if you’re willing to experiment, they prove themselves to be too tricky for most newbies.

When you’re ready, however, you’ll find that a vape mod provides the most rewarding experience of any type of vape rig.

Vaping Gear for 2019: The Bottom Line

As the vaping industry becomes larger and larger, an increasing number of vape rigs are making their debuts on the market. Despite the ever-growing pool of available products, it’s still easy to identify vape gear based on a few simple attributes.
