​Best Vape Pens for 2021 - UK Guide

21st Oct 2021

Vape Pens With Different Designs

The world of vaping is constantly changing and evolving as the demands of the customer shift. However, one thing remains the same - the popularity of the vape pen. You may hear this term discussed a lot among e-cigarette enthusiasts and in passing. It’s just one of many ways to describe a type of device you can use to vape nicotine in the UK. Vape pens come in different shapes but generally hold in the hand like a pen you write with. But what does the best vape pen do that a vape mod can’t match?

Why are they still picked up and used so frequently today? Is it better to have a cheap vape pen, a simple piece of kit to help quit smoking or a vape pen with a long battery life? Each criteria matters but first of all, let’s discover the function and purpose of a vape pen.

What is a Vape Pen?

Slim and simple to use, a vape pen typically contains a rechargeable battery while chucking out a small amount of cloud in the process. They typically last mouth to lung vapers most of the day if vaped at a steady less-frequent pace. Formed in a cylinder shape, they often require very little set-up or maintenance, containing a small amount of e-liquid heated in a tank or cartridge.

Everyone has a different interpretation or understanding of what a vape pen is because there are so many terms or nicknames to describe different types of vape devices. With larger batteries than a ‘cigalike’ but fewer features than an advanced vape mod, vape pens are the perfect device to take vaping to the next level. Below we have a few examples of the best vape pens available to vapers in 2021.

Top 10 Best Vape Pens of 2021

SMOK Stick N18 Vape Pen

Best Adjustable Vape Pen

A vape pen comes in various shapes and sizes but it’s essentially a middle-level device. Slightly more advanced than the disposable vape pen or starter kit for new vapers but not quite at the level of the advanced mod. The SMOK Stick N18 ticks several boxes for beginners and experienced vapers alike. Namely, the versatility from this stylish vape pen kit - allowing you to adjust the airflow and wattage effortlessly. On the bottom ring, you can tweak the wattage between five fixed settings - 9W, 15W, 20W, 25W or 30W - while the airflow below the tank turns to find the right draw of vapour. All of this is possible without needing to charge frequently because of the large 1300mAh battery.

V2 Vsavi Pro Series 3 Vape Pen

Best Vape Pen for E-Liquid

The wicked cartridges that slot seamlessly into the V2 Vsavi Pro Series 3 make this one of the best vape pens for e-liquid. Ideal for balanced or high PG e-liquids that are thin in consistency but strong in flavour, the cartridges are long-lasting, with the potential to refill up to 20 times before swapping for a new one. This process is easy enough for beginner vapers seeking a reliable vape pen that does a job for anyone transitioning from smoking. Housing 1.8ml of e-liquid, there is more than enough in the tank to last all day when mouth to lung vaping, regardless of the e-liquid, although we recommend using a high PG or balanced 50/50 with this vape pen. The Pro 3 also holds an 850mAh battery, which charges up quickly with the type-C charger at the base.

SMOK Stick G15 Vape Pen

Best Slim Vape Pen

Vapers often relapse and switch back to smoking or dual-use because they miss the familiarity of smoking something slim and easy to hold in the hand. Slim vape pens like the SMOK Stick G15 helped to reduce that temptation. Similar to the N18 Kit but more rounded in a cylinder-like shape with a curved tank, it’s auto-inhale like a cigarette and fixed at 15W of power. Therefore, it’s the ideal option for beginners seeking a simplistic vaping kit to start the switch.

Voom Vape Pen

Voom Pod Starter Kit

 

Best Budget Vape Pen

For under £30, you get a cheap and cheerful kit, packaged and displayed like the latest iPhone. It includes the Voom device, a few pods (added on to meet the budget displayed) - prefilled or refillable, as well as a charger too! The little device is compact but suave, plus draw-activated for easy use. Slick, practical and lightweight at only 16.2g, it’s a great addition to any vape kit collection.

SMOK Vape Pen V2

Best Sub Ohm Vape Pen for Clouds

Most people opt for a vape pen because of its reliability and resemblance to a cigarette in size. For that reason, typically vape pens are mouth to lung based kits that offer minimal cloud production. However, some options like the SMOK Vape Pen V2 are ideal Sub-Ohm vape pen alternatives for larger clouds. Thin and discreet in stature, don’t let it fool you in terms of power, vaping up to 60W with 0.15 Ohm mesh coils for enhanced flavour, which will not disappoint.

V2 Vsavi Starter Kit Vape Pen

Best Vape Pen to Quit Smoking

Smokers find it hard to give up the habit of inhaling cigarettes because it's been a daily routine for years. The nicotine addiction and sugar cravings from a cigarette make it hard to resist. But with the V2 Vsavi Starter Kit, all of that can change. You’re able to screw on a range of cartridges in different nicotine strengths, from 1.8% down to zero from flavours such as traditional Tobacco or Menthol and sweet options too. Easy to fire up with auto-activation and no buttons to press, this is an affordable vape pen that will certainly save you money, compared to a pack of cigarettes.

Innokin Jem Vape Pen

Best Vape Pen for Flavour

Tall and slender, the Innokin Jem vape pen is not only easy to use for new vapers but produces excellent flavour too. With an adjustable wattage, you can tweak the performance ever so slightly to maximise the taste you get from each hit. It has a curved thin mouthpiece that allows the vaper to enjoy each inhale comfortably and fits like a glove in the hand. Overall, this popular vape pen is simple to use, easy on the eye and offers just enough power for any beginner vaper or someone seeking a kit with a straightforward setup.

Aspire K2 Vape Pen

Best Refillable Vape Pen Kit

The majority of vape pens are not only compact but refillable too so you can practically top them up with any e-liquid you like. The Aspire K2 is no exception - boasting a bottom fill system that’s easy to get to and boasts airflow inlets to maximise cloud and flavour production. Slim and ergonomic, it holds 1.8ml of e-liquid in the tank which is more than enough and offers an 800mAh battery for all-day MTL vaping.

XEO Void Vaporiser Vape Pen

Best Leak Proof Vaporiser Pen

A multi-purpose vape pen switching between MTL and DTL effortlessly, the Void vaporiser offers a practical vape pen to all vapers. This e-cigarette is efficiency personified - a virtually leak-proof vape pen that’s slim and simple to use. Twist the mouthpiece clockwise and squeeze your e-liquid cap to fill up to the maximum line. It holds 2ml of e-liquid and provides 1500mAh for more than enough battery.

Vaporesso Orca Plus Starter Kit Vape Pen

Vaporesso Orca Solo Plus Starter Kit

 

Best Sleek and Ergonomic Vape Pen

The last slimline vape pen from our list is the Orca Solo Plus Starter Kit from Vaporesso. Combining the tight draw mouthpiece of the Innokin Jem and the body of the SMOK Vape Pen V2, the 1200mAh battery device will impress starters and advanced vapers alike. You can switch between the 0.6 Ohm mesh coils for surprisingly large vapour clouds or opt for the CCELL 1.3 Ohm MTL coils. In addition, select between three power modes at set wattages to switch styles with ease.

Elf Bar Disposable Vape Pen

Wildcard - Best Disposable Vape Pen

Vape pens don’t come any easier than disposable, which you can vape and throw away. The vaping industry offers plenty of options for vapers of all levels, interests and motivated people looking to quit. It may not be the best option for the environment, but neither is combustible tobacco. To help smokers quit, this Elf Bar is an inhale-activated device that’s set up and ready to use right out of the box. Available in plenty of flavours and bright packaging, they offer vapers up to 600 puffs with a 550mAh battery built-in, which doesn’t require charging. You get 2% nic salt, which is the maximum allowed in a vape kit and ideal for former heavy smokers, who seek more nicotine at less frequency.

Every vaper is different and for that reason will have an idea in mind of the perfect vape pen to suit their needs. Whether that’s something slim that fits in the pocket, a decent battery capacity, producing great flavour or simply a disposable, the list above gives a good account of the best options for vapers of all levels. Alternatively, you can opt for a vape pod or vape mod should you fancy something different.
