Vaporizers Or E-Cigarettes-Which One Should You Use?

Vaporizers or e-cigarettes – it can be a bit confusing.

If you have had the chance to look at forums and blogs regarding e-cigarettes and vaporizers, you may be confused regarding the differences and why do people use one over the other. This article should help give you some baseline information so that you can make an informed decision.




Functionally, all electronic cigarette devices (disposable, rechargeable e-cigs, and vaporizers) use similar concept. They use a liquid, known as e-liquid which is made from a number of different edible ingredients and is generally a combination of nicotine, propylene glycol and also a range of different flavors – we offer tobacco, menthol, cherry, vanilla, apple, banana, blueberry, green mint and coffee!  When heated, this is broken down and turned into vapor. This is how you receive nicotine when you take a puff.  All different forms of e-cigarettes and vaporizers are used to receive a nicotine fix; however they do so in different ways.

Disposable E-Cigarettes

Disposables e-cigarettes are the most common devices in the market. Many of them are available at gas stations, bars, and over-the-counter almost anywhere cigarettes are sold. Many smokers begin with this type of device since they are extremely easy to use. Just open the pack and start vaping. Using a disposable would certainly save you money over using regular cigarettes as well.  However, it is important to understand that disposable are just the tip of the iceberg. While some people find all the satisfaction they are looking for in a disposable,  serious smokers may prefer something a bit more powerful like rechargeable ecigs or personal vaporizers.

Rechargeable E-cigarettes

Rechargeable Ecigarettes are for people who are serious about e-cigarettes. These ecigs have the advantage of reusable batteries and pre-filled cartridges. The battery could be recharged using a USB charger and could last 3-6 months under normal use. Pre-filled cartridges could be bought directly online or at a store. 1 cartridge often lasts for about 1 pack of cigarettes. Just screw them over the battery and start vaporing. They offer the better cost savings over disposables in the long-run. So, if you want to save money and don’t want to worry about filling your cartridges, a good quality starter kit is the right product for you.

Personal Vaporizers

For people who are very serious about vaping and want to save serious money over the regular cigarettes, Vaporizers are the right product for you. There are two main benefits of using a vaporizer. First, they give the maximum savings over the long run.  And second, they give a very easy option to try numerous flavors: Flavors such as cherry-vanilla, apple, blueberry, or coffee-tobacco for you brave vapers out there! You can even mix and match different flavors to create your own. The only caveat is that you would need to fill you own e-liquid in the tank tube / clearomizer. Although it is very simple process, not everybody wants to go through the pain of filling e-liquid and sometimes making a mess in the process.

However, still considering significant $$ savings and an option of trying multiple flavors, it is a not a surprise that more and more people are switching to the vaporizers. 1 10ml bottle of e-liquid costs about $7 in the market and could last for about 5-7 packs of cigarettes. It is expected that the Vaporizer market is going to keep getting larger as more people try it. Even some of the larger companies are entering this market. MISTIC recently introduced their vaporizer ‘Hauss’ and is available in Walmart and many other stores.

More Differences

These devices use similar forms of power – batteries or charging via USB or plug. Obviously, there is a significant difference in form and shape and the e-cig is a lot more portable than the vaporizer and can be used easily in public situations.

Cigarette smokers also like regular disposables or rechargeable e-cigarettes because they mimic the feeling of a real cigarette. That said, there are increasing numbers of pocket vaporizers available and these can be carried almost anywhere in a pocket.

Of course, this is a case of them being utilized for different purposes. If you wanted to watch your favorite movie on a bus, you’d bring your smart phone and not your TV set. Although, given the choice of experience the TV set wins out when at home. In essence, what’s best depends on the specific situation.

Both rechargeables  and vaporizers are easy to use once you know how to use them. Also, it is fairly easy to learn how to use them.

So, e-cigs and vaporizers each have benefits to being used and it just depends on your specific need.  And as you move through your vaping experience, be sure to experiment until you hit upon the right device for you.
