Did you know the number of vape users is in the millions? And researchers estimate it will grow to 55 million by 2021.
With that many users, many vapers often struggle with differentiating themselves. The good news is that, because of all these users, there are now many options for customization.
Users can now customize their vape pen to reflect their style and to get the vaping experience they’re looking for. But first, you need to learn how to make a vape pen fit your vaping style and preferences.
Keep on reading below for some tips on how to do that.
1. Switch up Its Parts
A vape pen consists of at least three main parts, but it can also have up to five customizable parts. To make your vape feel more “you,” try switching one part with another. You can even try to change all parts, but even one can drastically change the experience.
You can, for instance, change the body—the main part of the vaporizer—itself. You can also switch to a more powerful battery for when you want more vapor.
The easiest thing you can change, though, is the mouthpiece. It’s the part you inhale from.
You can have one in different materials, like plastic, rubber, or steel. You can also choose the color to better suit you; you can have it in metallic or any other color you want.
If you want to further change the appearance of your vape pen, look for another cartomizer, too. It’s the tank that holds the e-liquid and the atomizer.
It comes in different designs, materials, and sizes. If you’re a heavy vaper, you’ll have to get a bigger one so it holds more liquid.
Another popular part you can customize is the atomizer. This is the part responsible for heating and vaporizing the e-liquid.
It dictates how your vape pen produces vapor. So, if you want to tweak that to tailor your expected experience, try out a different atomizer.
2. Use Mods
You can also use box mods to change your vaping experience. A box mod is an e-cig device; it either has an internal battery or a housing space for an external battery.
It has two types: regulated and unregulated. Unregulated mods don’t have any electronic components. This means it has no chips, circuit boards, LED screens, and such.
Regulated mods are the opposite. They have electronic components to control the voltage, wattage, and other advanced features. It also regulates temperature control.
Either is popular in the vaping community, but regulated mods are more recommended for you because you want a tailored experience.
You need these features if you want to control the feel of the throat hit. It also allows you to swap out parts, like the cartomizer and atomizer, for the models you prefer.
If you also want to experience sub-ohm vaping, you most likely need a box mod. It allows you to attach a sub-ohm atomizer, which uses low-resistance coils with less than one ohm. The results are bigger clouds of vapor and more intense flavors.
3. Buy Printed Shells
If you don’t want to make too much change yet you want to make your vape pen look more like “you,” then use printed shells. It’s a less expensive option than other upgrades, but it can have a drastic effect on the feel and look of your device. The shell slides over your device with cut-outs for the screen and firing button.
You can buy ready-made printed shells, but you can look for companies that can print custom shells so you can further customize how your device looks. You can have your favorite image printed or choose abstract patterns, different colors, and even words.
4. Make Your Own Vape Pen
If you know your way around electronics, this is a good idea for a weekend project. All it takes are some tools and parts you may already have in your house.
If you’re a complete beginner, however, don’t attempt to do this without professional guidance as this can be dangerous.
With that said, there’s a limit to the features of a homemade vape pen. You won’t be able to enjoy some of its advanced features, but if you only want something basic that fits the way you vape, this might be worth a try.
Go on Google to search for tutorials about how to make a vape pen, and you’ll find plenty. Look for the ones that don’t look as dangerous. They also differ in the materials they use, so find one that teaches you how you can make a vape pen out of the materials you have.
This tip is also only appropriate for when you already know what you’re looking for. Again, if you’re a beginner, we advise against doing this because of another reason: you might not know yet what kind of experience you want.
To find that out, you can buy a disposable vape pen and start from there. Try to get a feel of what you’re liking about the experience and what’s lacking.
5. Build Your Vaporizer
Some vape companies offer customizable vaporizers wherein customers will be able to choose what models they want for some parts. For instance, you can choose which cartomizer and mouthpiece you want.
The options are often limited; the choices you have depend on the available models the store has in stock. Still, it’s a good start to customizing your vaping experience. You’ll also likely to be able to choose the colors.
