Fact: Cigarettes are Not Vape Pens
Return to Vaping Blog

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


What an E-Cigarette is.


Let’s start with what an e-cigarette’s purpose is. E-cigarettes were developed as an alternative to smoking regular cigarettes without the use of tobacco. This promised a safer alternative to receiving nicotine into the body since regular cigarettes rely on burning tobacco and inhaling the smoke to receive nicotine. E-cigarettes heat a nicotine liquid to convert it to 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 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 more “satisfying vape.”


Vape devices feature a heating element 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 increase of mod sales, tobacco companies making disposables want mods gone all together.


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