What does it mean to vape? What options of devices are available? There are tons of questions you may ask when it comes to vaping and the answers are surprisingly simple.
INTRODUCTION TO VAPING
Vaping refers to the act of inhaling vapour through a battery powered e-cigarette as opposed to inhaling smoke from a combustible cigarette. This requires the purchase of an e-cigarette and the use of eLiquids which are vaporised to provide a variety of flavour sensations and to deliver nicotine. As there is no combustion, you inhale the eLiquid's vapour, rather than smoke.
HOW VAPING DEVICES WORK
Used by adult smokers who prefer a vaping experience, e-cigarettes are battery powered electronic devices which hold a liquid that contains nicotine. Vaping devices are made up of a battery, a USB point used to charge the battery cell, a heating element, a mouthpiece and an eLiquid reservoir (also referred to as a tank). While all vaping devices have a reservoir to house the eLiquid and/or Nic Salts, one key difference between vaping devices comes with how the vapour is heated and the vapour’s journey when inhaled.
Classic vaping devices, such as the Twisp Cue and Clearo ranges contain a coil (also referred to as an atomiser head) and cotton wick to heat and vaporise the eLiquid. These devices usually contain an LED button to activate the heating process and a mouthpiece from which to draw the vapour. This vaping style is referred to as Classic (MTL) as you draw vapour through your mouth and then inhale. This allows the vapour to sit in your mouth, allowing your taste buds to enjoy the settling flavour of the selected eLiquid. Classic (MTL) vaping focuses more on the taste and helps you extend your vaping sessions.
Other MTL devices, like the Vuse ePod, make use of a ceramic dish which provides a better heating experience of the eLiquid. While some require the need to push a button to activate, our device is simple enough to activate when you draw on the mouthpiece.
The Power vaping style (also known as STL) means that you inhale the vapour without holding it in your mouth first. Products such as the Twisp Cumulus X, produces bigger vapour clouds and a stronger sensation when the vapour condenses to form an aerosol, which is inhaled and exhaled.
If your e-cigarette or vape pen has a tight draw on its adjustable airflow, this can create a hotter vape. The throat experience is usually more intense and the sensation from the nicotine is amplified. Some, like the Twisp Tyko Plus, offer the opportunity to switch between Classic (MTL) and Power (STL) vaping styles by simply changing the coil (atomiser head) and mouthpiece.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF DEVICES
Vuse and Twisp have formed a partnership powered by progress, meaning you get a range of choice and the best of both closed and open systems vaping devices. There are multiple advantages to the different types of devices. Which one you choose depends on your personal adult lifestyle and the vaping style you wish to adopt. You should know that choosing one system doesn’t stop you from trying the other.
Some people like to have an open system device for use when they are at home, and a closed system vaping device such as the Vuse ePod for when they are on the move.
Closed systems, a.k.a "the pod" explained
Closed system vaping devices like the Vuse ePod are the simplest and easiest format available. With pre-filled, disposable cartridges or flavour pods, there is no need to press any buttons or change or fill any components. There are a wide range of pre-filled flavour pods available that makes it super easy to change flavours. Just pop in a Vuse flavour pod, puff and go. The Vuse ePod device provides convenience at your fingertips through its hassle-free set up.
Vuse has a wide range of flavours for you to experiment with, and as switching between flavours is so easy, your vaping experience will always be a very flavourful one. You also don’t need to wait for one flavour to finish before you try a new one. Test different flavour pods to match your mood during the day, from a Crispy Mint in the early morning, to a golden Rich Tobacco with a sundowner. Check out the range of vape flavours here.
Open systems, a.k.a "AIO" explained
All-In-One (AIO) systems, or open system devices, are refillable and require more involvement. Most devices activate by pressing a button, and some require you to hold the button down while vaping. Due to the many technical components, there’s a greater level of customisation when it comes to flavours which allows you to mix and match eLiquids to your own taste and palate.
Twisp AIOs provide the ultimate versatility. By pouring eLiquid into the reservoir, this allows for a greater range of flavour customisations.
