So you’re looking for that old, classic pen-style vape, huh? One of the original vape designs, the pen-style vape is one of those things that always seems to remain in fashion, even when it disappears from the spotlight for a while. There’s something about them that just feels fantastic in the hand – and with new advances coming out all the time, we can assure you that these new pen-style vapes don’t share anything but their form factor with the pen vapes of yore.
While older pen vapes were nothing more than a battery and a piece of nicotine-soaked cotton, newer pen-style starter kits house nearly as much power and as many features as their larger box mod cousins. Looking for adjustable airflow? Check. Adjustable wattage output? You got it. Sub-ohm vaping? MTL vaping? Hybrid vaping? Check, check, check.
While the sleeker and more portable design of pen kits will necessarily render them slightly less powerful than box mods, you can still expect a remarkably high-quality vape. Brand-new designs from companies like Smok and FreeMax have truly pushed the envelope, bringing you some of the best vapes in town without deviating from the cylindrical body style.
On the other hand, pen-style starter kits can be nearly as portable as some of the leading pod systems. Not quite as small, of course, but if that’s what you’re looking for, portability is a definite possibility with some of the pen kits. Options by Vandy Vape and Eleaf, just to name a few, are hardly any larger than a #2 pencil and can be even shorter. Within this portable frame, you’ll still get everything you love from a full-on starter kit too, like replaceable coils, a detachable tank, and large battery life.
