​Best Vape Pens for 2022 - UK Guide

7th Jul 2022

A Variety of Different Vape Pens

If you’re seeking a discreet device that doesn’t produce huge clouds of vapour but compact enough to fit in your pocket or bag, a vape pen could be the perfect companion!

Whatever the level of experience, vapers ideally want an easy kit to set up and use.

While all kits vary to some degree, with vape mods proving the go-to for advanced adjustable features, vape pens remain the popular choice for simplicity.

Easy to use and carry around, it’s the reliable option - in particular with beginners! Our guide runs through the best picks for 2022, as well as a vape kit summary for the best all-round kits for UK vapers, if you’re planning to spread your wings further.

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.

Top 10 Best Vape Pens of 2022

Elf Bar Mate 500 Pink

Elf Bar Mate 500 Kit


Best Budget Vape Pen

For under £10, you get a cheap and cheerful vape pen with the Elf Bar Mate 500, that features a 500mAh battery. Adapting to long term demand for their popular disposable flavours, Elf Bar answered with a compact and suave draw-activated device. All you have to do to complete the set is take your pick from the wide range of delicious prefilled nic salt pods at an affordable price.


Caliburn G2

UWELL Caliburn G2


Best Vape Pen for Flavour

Stylish and practical, the Caliburn G2 vape pen with refillable pods 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.


XEO Void Vaporiser Vape Pen

XEO VOID Vaporizer


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.


Voopoo Vmate Green

Voopoo Vmate


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 Voopoo Vmate helps to reduce that temptation. Easy to grip in the hand, it’s auto-inhale like a cigarette and fixed at 12W or 17W of power for a generous amount of vapour. Therefore, it’s the ideal option for beginners seeking a simplistic vaping kit to start the switch.


V2 Vsavi Starter Kit Vape Pen

V2 Vsavi Starter Kit


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.


SMOK Vape Pen V2

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 Pro Series 3 Vape Pen

Vsavi Pro Series 3


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.


Elf Bar Elfa Pod Vape Kit

Elf Bar Elfa Pod Vape Kit


Best Sleek and Ergonomic Vape Pen

The ergonmic vape pen from our list is the Elf Bar Elfa Pod Kit, which is similar to Elf Bar Mate 500 but offers a different experience in terms of the design. With more of a curved mouthpiece, it boasts a looser MTL draw. Meanwhile, the length and diameter of the kit are also longer with a cylinder shape in keeping with cigarette dimensions. Each pod features roughly 600 puffs and a mesh coil preinstalled for maximum flavour.


Aspire Flexus Q

Aspire Flexus Q


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 Aspire Flexus Q 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. You can take your pick with the 'three tier power system' and best of all - no need to adjust when your battery is running low. It's possible to charge up to 80% in only 10 minutes!


Uwell Caliburn A2

Uwell Caliburn A2


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 Caliburn A2 from Uwell is no exception - boasting a top fill system that’s so easy to get to with a snap of the finger to pop off the cap. Slim and ergonomic, it holds 2ml of e-liquid in the tank, which is more than enough, and offers a generous 520mAh battery for all-day MTL vaping.


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.
