Which Type of Vaping Device Is Right for You?

If you’re new to the world of vaping, the many types of vaping devices on the market can be confusing. With mods, pods, cartridges, and coils, the options can start to sound more like printers and coffee makers than vaping devices. Instead of getting overwhelmed, read on to discover the best vape devices and the factors you should consider when choosing a system to help you quit.

Meet the Top Low-Wattage Vaping Devices

Low-wattage pod systems are the types of vaping devices you’ll be wanting to use with your salt-nic pod juice because the concentration of nicotine is much higher than it is in a freebase solution. If the wattage is much higher than 12 Watts—as it is in high power devices—you will inhale an extremely high level of nicotine. A sub-ohm device burns through the nicotine too quickly and gives you too harsh of a hit.

Low-wattage pod systems are usually smaller, thinner, and can even look like a regular cigarette. Here are our top picks for vape pods to use with our classic, Jewel Edition, and Savage Patch salt-nic e-juices.


Offering some of the best vape devices for those who want to keep their vaping on the down-low, Suorin features three models of low-wattage devices that can be used with our salt-nic pods: Suorin Air, Suorin Drop, and Suorin Vagon.

The Sourin Air is the original Suorin device, featuring a flat, rectangular pod system that makes this option one of the smallest and most discreet types of vaping devices on the market. A 400mAh battery provides hours of vaping before it needs to be recharged and the 2ml cartridge can be refilled multiple times before you need to buy another pod.

Vaporesso Aurora Play

Super chic with a satisfying “click” when you open the flip-top lighter, this is one of our favorite types of vaping devices for new vapers. A 650mAh battery keeps you vaping for longer and three pre-set power levels allow you to customize your vape type. Get that instant gratification when quitting cigarettes with an automatic MTL (mouth-to-lung) draw and refill the pod while it’s still in place with the 10ml dropper bottle included in the kit.


Reminiscent of an old-school iPod, the OVNS JC01 is sleek, compact, and ergonomic, making it one of the best vape devices for user comfort. The built-in refillable tank can take .7ml of e-juice and, with 14 gorgeous colors to choose from, you’re sure to find a style that’s uniquely you. Can’t be bothered to press the fire button? No worries. This system will activate the coil for you simply by inhaling from the drip tip.

Lost Vape Orion

For smokers who appreciate a bit of nostalgia, the transistor radio-shaped Orion from Lost Vape could hold special appeal among the different types of vaping devices available. Featuring anti-dry hit technology, auto-detect pod resistance, and an intelligent battery indicator with five different colors, this pod system is definitely the high-tech choice for those who like to control and customize.


Of all of the types of vaping devices featured in our list, the SMOK Nord, Novo, and Trinity Alpha win the prize for battery life. The button-triggered Nord contains an unusually large 1100mAh battery, an e-liquid viewing window, and two different coils (a 0.6Ω mesh coil and 1.4Ω regular coil) for greater versatility. The Novo system is smaller with a 450mAh battery and two 2ml refillable mini-pods that are ergonomically designed to fit in your mouth. The box-shaped Trinity Alpha features a 1000mAh internal battery, two Nord Mesh coils, a 2.8ml pod, and three different power modes for a customized output.
