Pen Style Kits FAQ
What is a pen style vape kit?
A pen style vape kit, simply put, is a vape kit that is designed to resemble the shape of a pen. They tend to be long and slimline making them very compact and portable. The pen style kits tend to have an inbuilt battery to ensure the size says reduced and the device as a whole isn’t too big making it uncomfortable to use and transport around with you.

What are the different types of pen style vape kit?
Vape Pens can be split into two different categories, either mouth to lung (MTL) or Sub Ohm. If you are looking for a pen style vape kit that will be a perfect alternative to smoking cigarettes then the MTL styled vape pen would be ideal. If you come from a shisha background or are simply looking to get a vape kit that produces more vapour, then you may want to lean towards a Sub Ohm pen style vape kit.

What is Mouth to Lung Vaping?
Mouth to Lung vaping (commonly known as MTL) is in simple terms the same as how most people inhale a cigarette. You suck the vape into your mouth and then inhale into your throat or lungs.
MTL vaping does not focus on creating big volumes of clouds. Instead, flavour and nicotine is what is pronounced, in order to deliver the satisfaction. Usually having a setup which outputs at 15 Watts or lower. There are three main benefits on using MTL vaping; one is low-profile vaping, which allows for less visible vapour and smell of it. Secondly we have convenience, since the devices are in average smaller, less vape juice is consumed over time. And finally we have saving, as MTL devices in general, are more affordable than Sub-Ohm devices and cheaper to maintain.
An highlighted disadvantage for few MTL users, is that since the devices are low powered, users might not get a satisfactory nicotine lever, and ultimately higher nicotine strength will cause harshness on the throat area. This can be easily adjusted by adopting Nic Salts, as they can have a high nicotine content in their e liquids, but avoid throat harshness altogether.
What kind of e liquid is best for MTL vaping?
Ideally, MTL vapers should go for a vape juice that has a fairly high Propylene Glycol (PG) content, for example 50% or higher. Higher PG content will mostly deliver sharper throat hits, which closely resemble the ones found in combustive cigarette smoking. Is interesting to know that PG is the flavour carrier in e liquids, and does this better than VG. So why do we have any VG content in e liquids? Well, PG on its own is very harsh, therefore Vegetable Glycerine (VG) is added on e liquids, in order to smoothen the harsh throat hit caused by a pure PG ratio.
Ultimately, one of the bottom line in successfully switching from smoking habits to vaping, is by having a great control over nicotine cravings. This is why MTL vaping is suggested and preferred by new vapers, since most of starter e liquids contain a high nicotine content. This includes Nic Salts vape juice which, at 20mg of nicotine, is well suited to MTL devices.
What nicotine strength is best suited for me?
If you are new to vaping, and having difficulty deciding the ideal nicotine strength for you, there are a few factors to bear in mind, noticeably, getting a too high level of nicotine can make the e-liquid too harsh to vape, and may cause you to absorb a higher level of nicotine than you may require. By getting a way too low nicotine level your nicotine cravings may not going to be in satisfied, and eventually you may be put off vaping. It's good to bear in mind the nicotine level, and select vape the strength more suitable to your needs. In any case, we will break down the recommended use, for either type of device you decide to go for:
- MTL User:
-6/8 Mg: Low Nicotine -10/12mg Medium - 18/20mg High.
- Sub-Ohm User:
-3 mg Low -6mg Medium -12mg High.
If you go for freebase nicotine, bear in mind that the harshness of the nicotine will be stronger than the nicotine salts, therefore only go over 12 mg if you are a heavy smoker.
How long do i need to wait before changing my coil?
Most vapers need to change a coil between every 1 to 3 weeks. An average time would be 2 weeks, but it mostly depends on how often and heavily you tend to use your vape. Ideally the best thing to do if unsure, is for you to monitor the taste of your vape and look for the following signs that the vape coil needs replacement:
- Gurgling sounds emitted by your device during use
- Burnt taste after a puff
- The juice changed taste, or tastes way milder
- The vape is constantly leaking
- Coil being used for a long period of time
Your vape coil is one of the essential parts of your vaping experience, and a bad or a burnt-out coil can cause dry hits and make it uncomfortable, which is why you should take care of it. You should also keep track of old e-liquids if you want to avoid a bad taste when you’re vaping.
