If you’re new to the vapor community, figuring out how to choose a vape pen can be a daunting task. Portable vaporizers come in a seemingly endless variety of shapes and sizes, with features you’ve never even heard of, let alone know that you want. Before investing in a device that may or may not fit your needs, it’s important to identify what kind of experience you’re looking for. What kind of battery do you want? Will you vape e liquid or dry leaf? Or both? Do you want something that fits in your pocket? How about maintenance?
Batteries. When shopping for a vape pen, you’ll discover there are two types of battery power to choose from: rechargeable and replaceable. Both are lithium ion batteries, but one type you replace (like the batteries in your remote control) and the other you simply recharge. The V2 Pro Series 3 vape pen comes with a rechargeable lithium ion battery and a USB charging cord. This type of battery is easier on your wallet and the environment, making it widely preferred in the vapor community. An added bonus of using a V2 Pro vape pen is what’s called “pass through charging.” This means that the device is designed so that it can be charged while in use.
Compatible Mediums. There are three different mediums that can be used with a vape pen: e liquid, dry herb and wax. Because each medium vaporizes at a different temperature, you can’t buy any ol’ vape pen and fill it with whichever. Most vaporizers are engineered to vaporize only one of the three. This means that if you purchase a vape pen to use with e liquid, but decide you’d like to try wax, you’ll probably need to start back at square one. Each V2 Pro vape pen is multi-medium capable, meaning it can be used with all three: e liquid, dry leaf and wax. Series 3 offers compatible cartridges for each medium and then uses smart technology to automatically heat to the optimal temperature. Selecting a vape pen that works with all three mediums is both convenient and cost-effective.
Portability. When learning how to choose a vape pen, it’s important to consider the shape of the device and how it will fit with your lifestyle. If you plan to carry your vape pen in your pocket, a square device is probably going to be cumbersome. While Pax is considered by many to be the undisputed leader when it comes to style, it only works with dry herb – not much good to you if you’re planning on using e liquid. V2 Pro vaporizers are single-body construction, making them easily transportable. The Series 3 vape pen is slimmer than the Series 7 and made from a light, durable material. It fits easily into a pocket or purse and the recessed cartridge chamber virtually eliminates the risk of breaks or leaks.
Maintenance. Though often overlooked during the buying process, the maintenance of your vape pen can end up being more of a focus than its performance. This is because, unlike combustible smoking accessories, a vaporizer is comprised of electrical components that require extra care in order function properly. A clogged vape pen is not as easy to clean as one may think. For a brand that put form over function, you may need to purchase a maintenance kit separately in order to keep the device working at all. Conversely, the Series 3 vape pen needs virtually no maintenance. The user-friendly design of Series 3 incorporates disposable cartridges, so if a cartridge gets clogged with particles or resin, it can simply be thrown away and replaced with a new one. The device itself is completely unaffected. For anyone who has replaced an entire device due to residue build-up, this is a must-have feature.
Purchasing your first vape pen doesn’t have to be an uphill process. Once you decide what you do (and don’t!) want, the rest is easy!
