How To Choose Your Vape Pen

With hundreds of vape manufactures and thousands of vape products on the market, choosing a new vape pen can be a daunting task. Here is Mi-One Brands guide to choosing a vape pen that will best suit your needs.

Not all vape pens are the same 

Vapes don’t just come in all shapes and sizes, they have different functions and uses that are tailored for the end user. Understanding what each individual vape is designed for is very important, especially for first time vape users. Here is a short list of the different types of vapes. 

  • E-cigarettes
  • Disposable Vapes
  • Pod Vapes
  • Vape Pens
  • Box mods
  • High wattage box mod

Each of these vapes perform the ultimate function of vaporizing e-liquid but in different ways. Let’s highlight some of the more popular vape devices and why or why not the vape may be the perfect fit for you. 

Pod Vapes

Pod vapes or pod systems have increased in popularity over the past few years. These vapes are typically a cartridge and a separate battery. Cartridges house the e-liquid or vape liquid that you will use. Depending on your pod system the cartridge may be refillable, disposable, or pre-filled, this all depends on the manufacturer. The Mi-Pod from Mi-One Brands, has refillable 2mL pods that take any vape juice, including vapeable CBD. The battery is essentially the unit of power for your device. Most cartridges will insert into a rechargeable battery and then your device is ready for use.


  • Small and compact
  • Versatility
  • Mouth to lung (MTL) vaping experience
  • Discrete vaping experience


  • Less e-liquid capacity
  • Less power/wattage


E-cigarettes, also known as ‘e-cigs’, more closely resemble the look of a typical combustible cig. E-cigarettes are comprised of a mouthpiece, cartomizer, atomizer, battery, and often times a LED light indicator. 

Many of the first forms of vape were e-cigarettes. These e-cigs come in a one-piece disposable design or have replaceable cartridges.


  • Easy to operate
  • Affordable
  • Very low maintenance


  • Lack of power
  • Less vapor

Vape Pens 

Vape pens are usually comprised of a battery and a tank. These devices are crowned as the first evolution of the e-cigarette. Still relatively small in size and compact enough to fit in your hand or pocket. Vape pens have limited moving parts consisting of a battery and a coil with tank usually connected by a .510 connector. The tank is what houses the e-liquid the consumer wishes to use. Most vape pens do not offer many options or variances in wattage but have a simple firing button and charging port.


  • Easy to use top fill tanks
  • Refillable tanks
  • Replaceable coils
  • Long battery life
  • More vapor production


  • Slightly more maintenance
  • More moving parts
