Vaping has become a worldwide phenomenon. While many use it as an alternative to smoking or a way in which to move away from tobacco consumption, it has now moved beyond that. Vaping is an incredibly powerful smoking cessation tool, empowering users who make the switch from regular cigarettes better health, no bad smelling cigarette odour, and a way to satisfy their cravings in a truly enjoyable way.
Vape pens when first on the market were not as enjoyable as they are today. Leaky, poor taste, high maintenance, but now there are a number of very high-quality vaping products available.
If you’re just getting into vaping, finding the best vape pen for you can seem like an ordeal. With so many makes and models on the market, it can be difficult to know which ones will give you a satisfying vaping experience as well as being robust enough to handle regular use and (let’s face it) looking stylish and cool.
Best vape pen UK – how we selected our vape pens
We think it’s important for a person new to vaping to have a simplified experience where possible, with an easy to refill vape pen, and of course great flavour. The Vapour 2 ex series below is a great example of an out of the box ready to go vape pen, combining a really high-quality, low maintenance vape to help you make the switch from smoking to vaping or to upgrade your first vape to something higher quality.
The best vape pens in the UK available right now.
#1 The Vapour 2 EX Series
If you’re looking for a great all-rounder at a price point that’s friendly to beginners, look no further than The Vapour 2 EX series. The pen itself is stylish and elegant with a slender design and brushed steel finish (also available in rose gold, blue pearl, matt black and opal).
The Vapour 2 EX Series is focused around delivering a good throat hit from the premium e liquids that V2 offer. We really like the congress tobacco flavour with this product, a superb tobacco flavour which is perfect for this vape pen.
Despite its delicate design, the pen is hard wearing and offers an easy and satisfying user experience. The refill tank holds 1ml of e-liquid and while the battery is small and lightweight it is impressively powerful at 4.2 volts. Combine with some platinum e-liquid and you have everything you need to get started. Perfect for somebody looking to make the switch from regular smoking to vaping.
It should be noted that there are much cheaper alternatives to this product, you may have seen them in the local shops and they may look a similar style with the small form factor and refillable tank – in our experience these cheaper alternatives cannot compare to the V2 Ex Series. It is not even a comparable product.
Yet another testament to German engineering, the VOID vaporizer is a good looking and intelligently designed vape pen made from high-quality materials that belie the budget-friendly price of just £39.99. Available in a wide array of colours, the stylish chassis contains a 2ml e-liquid capacity with some of the best anti-leak technology on the market. Interchangeable atomiser heads give users better control over their vaping experience. The 0.6 Ohm head produces bigger clouds and adds a more intense flavour to high VG e liquids, while the 1.0 Ohm head allows for a harder draw which is best suited to former tobacco smokers who are just getting into vaping.
This is another vape pen that’s great for beginners, although even seasoned vape enthusiasts will find this an easy, intuitive and satisfying vaping experience. It offers a choice of finishes and has a scratch-resistant coating which means you can keep it in the same pocket as your keys without worrying about it looking damaged or shabby. The coating is also slightly rubberised to reduce the risk of dropping and make for a more pleasant feel in your hand.
Its 1900 mAh battery offers outstanding performance and it is self-adjusting up to 50 W so users don’t need to worry about tinkering with settings making it another simple choice for your first vape. The battery ensures that you get the right amount of power delivered to the coil every time. Speaking of coils, the Apollo Ohm-Go comes with 2 easily changeable coils, 0.5 Ohm and 1.0 Ohm to create a more tailored vaping experience.
Innokin Proton Plex
Another top pick of the bunch is the Innokin Proton Plex. Considering the high-quality materials and sophisticated technology behind this vaping device the RRP of £69.99 make the Proton Plex an absolute steal. However, since it’s currently available for just £59.47 you get outstanding value for money. Made of pyrex and stainless steel and available in red, white or blue, it’s stylish aesthetic is elevated by the awesome TFT screen.
The Proton Plex offers a suite of features for a fully customisable vaping experience yet is still easy and intuitive for brand new users. The device has a TCR Mode (Temperature Coefficient of Resistance) which allows you to control the temperature of your coil and how quickly it gets hot. This offers you a far more varied vaping experience for those wanting to experiment a little. The menu is accessible via a TFT screen and is navigated by a tiny joystick on the surface.
Those who want to fully customise their vape couldn’t find a better match for a better price. You can even change the colours of the screen’s accents.
Any of these recommendations will give you an easy and pleasant vaping experience that’s perfect for beginners and experienced vapers alike!
