With the arrival of 2020, we’ve entered not just a new year but a new decade too. What better time is there to add a new device to your collection—or, if you’re just transitioning to vaping, to choose one?
You might have been vaping for years and be searching for something new to start off the new year with, or you might be looking to quit smoking and transition to vaping as your New Year’s resolution. Whatever the case, we will show you the top vape devices to check out in 2020.
Pod mods are all the rage because they’re compact and incredibly versatile. You no longer have to choose between the power and flexibility of a box mod and the ease of use and portability of a smaller vape, because with the SMOK RPM 40, you get the best of both worlds!
This all-in-one (AIO) kit is different from anything else on the market. In fact, it’s different from anything else we’ve previously seen from SMOK. Many AIOs offer a fixed wattage, which is great for beginner vapers or experienced vapers who want a compact device they can vape on the go. The SMOK RPM 40 changes that by allowing you to adjust the wattage—up to a cool 40 watts—so that you can customize your vape exactly how you like it. On its bright and clear 0.96-inch screen, you can see your device’s battery life, the voltage and wattage, the resistance of the coil installed, and how many puffs you’ve taken. At the bottom of the screen are six color options, allowing you to switch up the accents on the display according to your mood or preference.
The SMOK RPM 40 boasts features you’d expect to see from advanced box mods, including a three-click lock system for preventing your vape from firing when you’re not using it and a wattage lock for when you find your sweet spot. It also has all the protections you’d want from any vape, including safeguards against low voltage, short-circuiting, and high temperature, along with an eight-second cutoff.
In terms of its appearance, the RPM 40 comes in a choice of eight colors. At 99mm tall, it’s on par with what you’d see from other pod mods, and it’s only slightly taller than the SMOK Nord. Where the SMOK RPM 40 differs, though, is in its cube-like design, with rounded edges that make it extremely comfortable to hold in the hand. It also feels sturdy and durable, with a weight that isn’t overly heavy but solid enough to feel substantial—as it should with all the power under the hood of this vape!
The RPM 40 comes with two pods: an RPM pod, which comes pre-installed with an RPM 0.4ohm coil, and an RPM Nord pod, pre-installed with a Nord 0.6ohm coil. The RPM pod holds a massive 4.3ml of e-liquid and can be distinguished from the Nord pod with its red rubber plug. The Nord pod, with its black plug, has an even more substantial 4.5ml capacity. With such a large capacity, it’ll easily keep you going all day, and refilling is easy; all you need to do is use your nail to open the plug and drip your e-liquid into the hole. At the top of each pod is the mouthpiece, which is wide and extremely comfortable for all-day vaping.
With a built-in 1500mAh battery, you’ll have enough juice to last you all day, even if you’re a heavy vaper, and thanks to variable wattage, you can really get the most out of the battery by dialing down the wattage.
As a result of the device’s compatibility with RPM and Nord coils, you have a wide range of resistances at your fingertips, from 0.4ohm to 1.4ohm. This means you can enjoy great flavor from high nic salt juices with a 1.2ohm or 1.4ohm coil and then swap to a 0.4ohm or 0.6ohm coil for a DTL sub-ohm vape. But if you already have a SMOK Nord, why should you upgrade to the RPM 40? Slotting the Nord tank and coil into the RPM 40 will give you a near-identical Nord vaping experience, but the RPM gives you so much more flexibility, allowing you to adjust your wattage to get the most flavor or thicker clouds. Using the RPM tank and coils also gives you a larger choice of resistances, allowing you to go as low as 0.4ohm, compared to the slightly higher 0.6ohm you can get with Nord coils.
The SMOK RPM 40 may be small, but it’s powerful, and its strength lies in its versatility. If you’re a new vaper, it’s inevitable that, at some point, you’ll want to start experimenting with wattage and different coils to get the most out of your device. The RPM 40 is easy to use even for beginners, and the added functionality will be there when you’re ready. For advanced vapers who enjoy pod mods or are looking to swap their bigger box mod for something smaller but just as powerful, the RPM 40 is a great choice, giving you plenty of variety and the ability to customize your vape exactly how you like it.
If you’re looking for a sleek and convenient vape that doesn’t compromise on performance, the Suorin Edge is a must-have for your collection. The metal chassis looks great in any one of its six available colors, and unlike many other pod mods, the Edge features a removable battery, so you won’t ever have to worry about performance steadily dropping the more you use it or be caught out with a dead battery.
The Suorin Edge comes with two 230mAh batteries, allowing you to use one and have the other fully charged for when you need it. These batteries fully charge in just 30 minutes thanks to super-fast USB-C technology.
It’s thin and lightweight, and it can easily slot into your pocket for vaping on the go. With a tight mouth-to-lung draw and a steady output of 10 watts, you’ll get buckets of flavor and a smooth hit, especially if you use it with your favorite nic salt vape juice.
The pods come installed with a non-removable 1.4ohm coil, which is perfectly suited to the fixed wattage to deliver an enjoyable throat hit every time. These pods are refillable, but just like with coils, you will need to replace them often to make sure you continue getting the best performance from your vape and to prevent dry and burnt hits.
Its restricted draw gives you an experience not unlike smoking a combustible cigarette. The Suorin Edge is also draw activated, which means there are no buttons to hold down or risk of it misfiring while it’s tucked away in your pocket or purse. When you’re ready to vape, simply draw on the mouthpiece, then inhale and breathe out the vapor.
For beginner vapers looking for a stylish device that offers great flavor, a smooth nicotine hit, and the ultimate convenience, or for vapers looking for a device that will keep them going without the need to constantly tether themselves to a power source, the Suorin Edge is the perfect vape.
If the vaping world had a famous family, few would disagree that it would be the Voopoo Drag. The Drag range has continued to grow, and with each new vape, Voopoo offers something new and different.
The Voopoo Drag Baby Trio is one Baby that you won’t be putting into the corner—we wouldn’t be surprised if it ever left your palm! This may be a tiny box mod, standing at just 58.5mm tall, but it’s packed full of power.
This versatile vape is compatible with three different coil types: 0.6ohm and 0.8ohm coils for low-strength nic salts and smooth DTL hits, and a 1.2ohm coil for MTL vapers who want maximum flavor from higher-nic juices.
The Voopoo Drag Baby Trio is also unique in its no-mess approach to changing coils. With some other pod mods and box mods, the coil is installed in the tank, so when you want to change your coil, it can get pretty messy, especially if you have a tank topped full with liquid when your coil reaches the end of its life. But with the Voopoo Drag Baby Trio, the coil and juice chamber are separated, meaning you can swap out your coil in seconds, and without any mess.
Its multiple coil resistances make this a great device for experienced vapers looking for a portable vape they can carry on the go, but with all the power housed inside this tiny device, it could easily become your go-to vape. It’s also great for new vapers. To use it, all you need to do is unscrew the top cap and drip your e-liquid through one of the two holes. Let your e-liquid soak into the coil for 5 to 10 minutes and then hold down the fire button to vape—it’s as simple as that. The tank holds 1.8ml of e-liquid, and while this isn’t as much capacity as you’d get with other tanks, this is an advantage. We’ve all been in the situation when we fancy swapping to another flavor but still have 3ml of juice left in our tanks. You don’t want to vape it but, at the same time, you don’t want to waste it, and this can make vaping seem like a chore. Make no mistake, though, this smaller capacity still gives you plenty of puffs before you’ll have to refill.
The Drag Baby Trio outputs a maximum of 25 watts for thick clouds at lower resistances. You can’t manually change the wattage, but thanks to the internally installed GENE.Trio chip, you won’t need to! The GENE chip intelligently alters the device’s output to guarantee great flavor and an enhanced vaping experience from your first puff.
Aside from offering great performance, the Drag Baby Trio looks pretty slick too. It’s available in seven stunning colors, each with a signature resin panel that the Drag range of vape gear has become famous for. The colors bleed together uniquely, so even if you opt for the same design as someone else, you can be sure that your vape will be distinct.
This box mod also features an LED indicator to tell you how much battery life you have left, but with a battery capacity of 1500mAh, this device has more than enough power to last you the entire day.
If you’re a fan of the traditional box mod look and you want a device that’s no-fuss, convenient to use, and packs a powerful punch to boot, you can’t go wrong with the Voopoo Drag Baby Trio.
The cigarette-style vape is often the first choice for many vapers. These devices are styled to look exactly like cigarettes, complete with a colored soft-tip “filter” and an LED that lights up when you inhale.
The JAK Ecig Menthol Disposable is draw activated to give you an authentic smoking experience. You’ll get 800 puffs out of this bad boy—the equivalent of roughly four packs of cigarettes—and when you’re finished, there’s no fiddling around with refilling or taking apart your vape, just throw it away. The JAK Ecig Menthol Disposable is available with either 16mg nicotine or 36mg nicotine, allowing you to choose what best suits you. If you’re a heavy vaper, you’ll probably want to go for 36mg, but if you vape less frequently, you’ll more than likely be satisfied with the lower-nicotine vape. Either way, you’ll enjoy a refreshing menthol flavor, and you won’t want to put down your vape!
The Renova ZERO from vape brand Vaporesso is a smashing pod mod that’s perfect for those just starting out with vaping as well as more seasoned vapers. Powered by a built-in 650mAh rechargeable battery, this compact device delivers plenty of juice, and with three power modes, you can easily switch up or down to a higher or lower output. It’s easy to change between modes too—just click the power button three times.
Using the Renova ZERO is a breeze. As it’s an automatic-draw vape, all you have to do is start inhaling. This also means there’s no need to worry about your vape misfiring in your pocket. When you’re running low on liquid, refilling your ZERO pod is simple. These pods are unique in that they use a “press-to-fill” system, which guarantees no accidental spills or leaks when you’re not vaping. It works by applying pressure to the pod’s filling port using the included e-juice filling bottle, which you can fill with your favorite e-liquid. Press the nozzle into the filling port and the seal will open, allowing you to top up your tank. When it’s full, remove the nozzle and the port will automatically close, sealing your e-liquid within. With the Renova ZERO, messy leaks and awkward filling are things of the past! You also get all the inbuilt protections you need to keep your vape safe, with the OMNI chip safeguarding against overheating, short-circuiting, and dry hits when you’re low on liquid.
