The world of vaping can be confusing. There are too many choices and things to consider. It’s daunting. Especially for smokers desperately seeking an alternative. And no matter how unhealthy smoking is, it’s simple. Why can’t vaping be that easy?
Vaping actually can be that easy. Just start here at the beginning.
The vape kits on this list are discreet, practical, and as simple to use as a cigarette. At most, these devices require one step. Insert a pod containing a flavored nicotine solution into a battery device, then simply inhale. These vape devices turn on when you take a puff, then go into sleep mode after your puff. Think of it as an electronic version of a cigarette with on-demand nicotine satisfaction. But don’t think that it is smoke! Call vapor, or an aerosol, or a fog mist, or steam…whatever you want to call it, it’s not smoke!
The vape kits on this list are practical, easy to use devices that take prefilled pods. No need for messy refills or fiddling with settings. Just pick a flavor, take a pod out of its box, connect it with the battery, and vape. On top of that, all e-cigs listed here are pocketable and lightweight, making them an excellent choice for vaping on the go.
