How Does a Vape Pen Work?

A vape pen is a vape device that is about the size and shape of a thick pen. It is a smaller, stripped-down version of a box mod. It works similarly, but it is easier to use.

Parts of a vape pen

A vape pen usually has five pieces.

  • Battery: This is usually the main body of the pen.
  • Cartridge or tank: This holds the e-juice.
  • Sensor.
  • Mouthpiece.
  • Drip tip.

How it produces vapor

The mechanism is quite simple. When you draw on the pen, the battery sends a charge to the sensor. This causes the heat to rise. The juice in your pen gets warm and turns into vapor. 

How To Use a Vape Pen

A vape pen is generally a little easier to use than a pod mod, especially disposable vape pens which which require no filling and are usually press and go. The Airbar vape is popular amongst users for it's ease of use.

Using a disposable vape pen

To vape with your pen, simply put the mouthpiece in your mouth and inhale gently. You can choose mouth-to-lung or direct-to-lung vaping with a pen.

Some vape pens have an on/off button. Others have an auto-draw function, which means the device will turn on as soon as you inhale. The VFUN Disposable is a very popular option for fans of full flavors and a simple vape experience.

Refilling a re-usable vape pen

If you have a re-fillable vape pen begin by removing the tank from the top of the pen. When you remove the cap, you will see the coil at the top of the cartridge.

Start by placing a few drops of juice directly on the coil. Use a dropper tip or a syringe to do this. Next, fill the cartridge with your chosen juice. Fill it only to the marked line. Flooding your cartridge with juice will damage your coil and make for an unpleasant vape.

Changing the coils 

With a re-usable vape pen you must occasionally replace the coils. Your vape pen kit may have included a spare coil. If not, you can order replacements from your favorite vape supplies vendor.

When do you replace them? Most vapers find their coils last about three weeks with daily use. Your frequency depends on your vaping habits and the type of juice you use. 

Changing the coils is easy. Simply unscrew the old one from the cartomizer, dispose of it, and screw the new one in.

Benefits of Using a Vape Pen

Safety Tips for Using a Vape Pen

Use common sense to vape safely with a vape pen.

Don’t overcharge your device. Leave your battery plugged in only until it’s fully charged. Leaving it longer can wear the battery out. For the same reason, turn off your device when you’re not using it.

Keep it clean. Occasionally clean the mouthpiece, cartridge and inside of the battery. Use rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab, and don’t vape until it’s completely dry.

Handle your device gently. You don’t have to screw the battery tightly into the charging socket. When you replace the cartridge, cap or coil, don’t tighten them too hard.
