What are the different types of electronic cigarette?
Pod Systems: Pod systems are a type of E-Cig that have gained popularity over the last few years with new and established vapers alike. Sometimes referred to as an all-in-one device, they work in a similar way to the original cigarette-a-like electronic cigarettes. Their simple design consists of a battery and a pre-filled e-liquid pod, and they are activated by the user inhaling on the mouthpiece. Some pod systems include an activation button which must be depressed to activate the device.
Pod systems are discreet and easy to carry as well as great value for money. In comparison to cig-a-likes, they feature more powerful batteries and larger amounts of e-liquid in the pods, so they are also a more economical option.
Vape Pens: Vape pens are one of the most widely available types of E-Cigs. Popular with new vapers, they feature a long, tube-shaped design that consists of an encased battery, a heating element called an atomiser, a tank that contains a coil, and a mouthpiece called a drip tip.
Vape pens are well liked as they are easy to use and are usually activated by a single button. Although some vape pens may include an LED screen to switch between different settings, the majority don't include this.
Vape pens usually feature a 510 thread that makes them compatible with a wide range of tanks. As the tanks are refillable, vape pens can be used with any pre-mixed or DIY e-liquids, however, they generally have lower power settings so work best with 50/50 or high-VG e-liquids.
Vape Mods: Vape mods are the most advanced type of electronic cigarette and tend to be favoured by more established vapers. With a vast array of designs and settings to choose from, you can truly personalise your vape to achieve the levels of flavour, cloud production, and throat hit to suit your preference.
Mods consist of the box shaped base (although some are available in different shapes) that contains the batteries and controls, a tank, and a mouthpiece. The variable settings make them suitable for both mouth-to-lung (MTL) and direct-to-lung (DTL) vaping.
Reasons to switch to electronic cigarettes
There are many reasons to switch to vaping, these include:
• E-cigs are a great way to lower your nicotine intake. E-liquids are available in a range of strengths all the way down to 0mg, so you can gradually reduce levels at a pace that suits you.
• E-liquids generally consist of 4 ingredients; propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, nicotine, and food grade flavourings, unlike some of the nasty chemicals you find in traditional cigarettes!
• Vaping is a cheaper alternative to smoking.
• There are an almost unlimited number of flavour options available to choose from.
• You may be able to use electronic cigarettes in places where smoking is prohibited.
• With vaping there are no nasty odours.

E-liquid (also known as vape juice or e-juice) is the liquid used in e-cigarettes and other vaping devices to produce the vapour, flavour, and nicotine hit.
It usually consists of two main ingredients, propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerine (VG) as well as some additional ingredients such as flavourings, nicotine, and distilled water. E-liquids can consist of any ratio of PG and VG with high PG liquids having a thinner consistency that is suitable for use with lower wattage devices such as pods and starter kits, and high VG liquids having a thicker consistency that is suitable for sub-ohm vaping.
High PG e-liquids are usually preferred by ex-smokers and those that are new to vaping as they produce a stronger throat hit and a cleaner flavour. For a versatile e-liquid that is suitable for most devices up to 50 watts, a 50% PG/50% VG mix is ideal.
Our e-liquids are available in a variety of flavours including fruit, spice, beverage, dessert, candy, menthol, and tobacco flavours. At F&S Vape Shop, our range includes the following:
Shortfill e-liquids and shake and vape e-liquids are a range of nicotine-free juices that are supplied with space in the bottle for additional nicotine shots, nic salts, PG/VG, or coolers.
Usually supplied with 40ml, 50ml, or 100ml of e-liquid, the bottles have enough capacity for 1 or 2 10ml shots, which can be added at different strengths to create your perfect blend.
Popular brands in the shortfill range include Charlie's Chalk Dust, Zeus, Dinner Lady, Pacha Mama, Naked 100, and Wick Liquor.
Premixed e-liquids are ready to use, combining PG, VG, and nicotine in high PG, high VG, and 50/50 ratios. Nicotine strengths are available are 3mg, 6mg, 12mg and 18mg. Our range includes 10ml premixed e-liquids from 3 of the best brands on the market; Element, Vampire Vape, and Lazy.
Nic Salt E-Liquid
Nic salt e-liquids replace regular freebase nicotine with nic salts for a faster, more satisfying nicotine hit. As the nicotine is available in a purer form, it's a great option for those making the switch from cigarettes, providing faster nicotine absorption and less harshness on the throat.
Nicotine strengths available are 10mg and 20mg. Customer favourites in the nic salt e-liquid range include Anarchist, Nasty Juice, Element, and Riot Squad.
Pre-filled pods are designed for use with pod systems and are available with freebase e-liquid and nic salts. At F&S Vape Shop, we stock pods that are compatible with Aspire Gusto Mini, JUUL, Relx, and Vuse. Nicotine strengths available are 12mg, 18mg and 20mg.

All of our unflavoured e-liquid bases can be customised to meet your own specific requirements. You get to choose your ratio of VG and PG in the base, this determines the amount of vapour your finished e-liquid will produce, as well as the smoothness of the draw.
