Vape Pens

When vaporizer pens first hit the market over a decade ago, these ‘e-cigarettes’ immediately became a hit around the world—because despite the name, the devices actually had little in common with traditional cigarettes. Whilst there’s been an ongoing debate regarding vape pens’ safety, the National Health Service (NHS) and many other experts have published studies showing vape pens are ‘much less harmful than smoking.’

But that’s not the only reason vape pens have become so popular in recent years. Their lightweight, compact design makes them perfect for a quick session wherever you might find yourself. And as more and more people turn to vaping, companies are releasing a spectacular range of vape pens that can be used with the traditional oils and e-liquids, as well as dry herb and concentrates like wax or shatter.

Safety still comes first, of course, and at the Herbalize Store we’ve curated a collection of only the finest vape pens from the world’s leading brands. Regardless of your needs, we’ve got just the vape for you—and below, we’ll show you how to pick a winner.

Pen Vaporizer FAQ 

To answer perhaps the most obvious question people have about these little devices: yes, they really do look like pens (to varying extents, as some are literally indistinguishable from those clicky pens you get at the bank, whilst others are a tad more robust than your typical writing utensil). But that’s probably not the only thing you want to know about vape pens, so here’s some more background:

1. Are vape pens safe?

Yes, provided they’re made well. In recent years, a number of counterfeit vape pens have made headlines due to various mishaps. ‘Exploding vape pens’ are the exception to the rule, however—when built with careful craftsmanship and quality tools, vape pens pose no special safety risks. The Herbalize Store only carries well-made vape pens from established, reputable brands. 

2. Are vape pens legal?

Vape pens are legal in the EU with two stipulations. First, you have to be over 18 years old to buy or use one—regardless of what material you’re using it with (i.e. it doesn’t matter if that material contains nicotine or not). Second, that material itself has to be legal in the EU. The Herbalize Store only sells vape pens that are intended to be used with legal materials. 

3. What can you vape with vape pens?

Years ago, the only vape pens that were easy to find were meant to be used with e-liquids. Today, you can still find these types of pens (which tend to have a refillable chamber for the liquid), but you can also find ones intended for use with pre-filled oil cartridges. Others are meant to be used with solid substances, and some can even be used with all types of materials. 

4. Where can you buy vape pens?

It’s hard to walk into a high street shop these days without seeing a little display case for vape pens—they’re available almost everywhere, it seems. To get a good one, though, you’ll want to stick with a retailer that actually specia Where can you buy vape pens?

lises in vape pens as opposed to stocking them as an afterthought. The vape pens at the Herbalize Store have all been chosen according to our own demanding tastes, so that’s a good place to start (we’re biased, but still).

5. Which is the best vape pen?

This is a question with no easy answer—well, that’s not exactly true. It’s not particularly hard to determine the best vape pen for you, but your answer might be much different than the next person in line. It’s a question of personal taste, and below we’ve outlined a quick way for you to figure out what your particular tastes are.

How to Choose the Perfect Vape Pen For You?

Buying a vape pen isn’t like buying a car—you don’t need to spend weeks agonising over the details. All you need is a quick ‘personal vaping profile’ to help guide your decision making. Here are the three most important questions to ask yourself before buying a vape pen:

1. What kind of material do you want to vape?

Aside from your budget, this is probably the most important thing you should determine before starting your search. Whilst some vape pens can handle a variety of substances—the aforementioned oils, e-liquids, and solids—others are intended for use with only one or two materials. Sometimes, buying an accessory or two can increase the versatility of your vape pen. For example, a dry herb vape pen might be compatible with certain concentrates thanks to a special ‘concentrates pod.’

2. Do you like vaping at different temperatures?

If you’re wondering why this matters, it’s because materials exert different effects depending on the temperature used to vape them. Vaping at extremely high heats tends to produce intense sensations, whilst lower temperatures result in a more mellow experience. Some vape pens offer custom temperature controls that allow you to set the precise level of heat. Others come with preset temperature options from the factory. In some lower-priced models, there’s only one temperature setting available. 

3. How important is battery life to you?

Some vape pens can last for several hours of continuous use on a single charge (which translates to a day or more’s worth of vaping, for most people). Others have a much shorter battery life, though you might be able to get a replaceable battery in some cases. Charging time is another thing to consider, as some vape pens can achieve a full charge in under an hour (and some of these can even be used whilst charging, thanks to a feature known as ‘pass-through-charging’).

Pros and Cons of Vaporizer Pens 

Vape pens are sometimes compared to low cost airlines—depending on your needs, they can be a great way to save money, time, and hassle. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a more ‘luxe’ experience, they might leave a bit to be desired. Here are some of vape pens’ main advantages and disadvantages:

Who Are Vape Pens For?

Beginners love vape pens because they’re affordable, compact, and easy to use. They’re a great way to dip your toe in the vaping pool, so to speak. But vape pens also have an undeniable appeal for people with more experience. If you’re a dedicated vape enthusiast, vape pens make a great backup option for when you’re traveling (or just packing extra light for whatever reason).
