There are hundreds, if not thousands of decent vapor pens to choose from. Why should you pay an arm and a leg when you could get one for a fraction of the price? Well, the answer to that question depends on what you’re looking to get out of your pen.
If you want to give yourself the best chance of making the switch successfully, you shouldn’t run out and buy the cheapest device you can find. That will most likely lead to a crappy experience and you picking up the cigs again.
Is It Worth It?
Honestly, for most people, a super expensive device just is not worth it. If you’re still trying to figure our what sub-ohm vaping is, don’t buy an expensive pen. It really comes down to your experience level and your desires. If you’re super experienced with vaping and are looking for something high quality, then get an expensive pen. But if you have no experience and just want to get into vaping, then buy a more reasonably priced vape pen. There are plenty of good devices on the market that costs less than $100.
The exception would be for the new vaper who desires to be a vaping beast but has little experience. If you truly desire to become a master vaper, then you could make the leap to an expensive pen rather early in your vaping career. We still would advise you to buy a mid range pen first before you take the leap to stardom. Buying a mid range pen allows you to learn the basics without much risk and gives you a benchmark to compare your fancy vape pen to. Think in the $50 ballpark for a really good mid range device. You can really get a lot for your money in the current market.
Buying a pen does have some advantages over getting a mod. With most regulated pens, you don’t have to buy an external battery, charger, or tank. They usually come in kits like the Rocket 3 (great beginner device). This keeps you from having to go out and spend a ton of money on the necessary extras that add up. That’s one of the things I love about these devices. They’re so easy to use and anyone can get started vaping in under an hour.
If the only reason you’re looking for an expensive vaporizer pen is to do tricks or chase clouds, then paying up is well worth it. Doing vape tricks on cheap pens isn’t all that exciting. You can still do some of them, but you won’t have the thick cloud production you really need. More expensive vape pens can chuck beastly clouds that allow you to do all kinds of cool shiz. There’s one kit in particular that is great for cloud chasing and sub-ohm vaping.
The Rebel 3 Vaporizer by VaporFi
The Rebel 3 is great for sub-ohm vaping and cloud chasing. It’s expensive though, coming in at $89.99 for the bundle. You could get three or four mid range pens for that price, but they won’t pack the punch that the Rebel does. It’s an all around high quality device, made out of seemingly indestructible stainless steel and sporting a 3,000mAh battery. That’s a bigger battery than a lot of box mods have. You’ll be able to vape all day and enjoy quality vapor on the Rebel 3.
The tank is also massive. It comes with a 5.8ml tank. You won’t have to worry about constantly refilling this beast. They did a good job when designing this pen. It’s expensive, but well worth it for the vape aficionado.
As far as atomizers go, it comes with a 0.5ohm atomizer. When you purchase it, you will be able to add five extra atomizers that should last you a while for only $17.99. You can add either five 0.25ohm attys or five 0.5ohm attys. The flavor and clouds that come off these atomizers is fan-friggin-tastic! It’s worth the price tag if you’ve acquired the ability to experience the finer nuances of vaping.
Just like the wine connoisseur can taste a lot more of a wine than your average person, vaping is much the same. The more you vape and train your brain to pick up the subtleties, they become a lot less subtle. If you’re not a vape connoisseur yet and have no aspirations of becoming one, then this isn’t the pen for you unless you want to chase clouds. But if you’re already at that level or truly aspire to be, then pickup the Rebel 3 for less than the price of a night out on the town.
