Vape pen[Vape pɛn]


A vape pen is a type of e-cigarette that is similar to a ballpoint pen because it has a long slim shape. Some market-available vape pens, however, have customized appearances. Vape pens’ size is small enough to fit into a pocket or purse, making them easily accessible and ready to use.

Here are the essential parts of a vape pen:

  1. Tank or cartridge – This part stores the cannabis product that will undergo vaporization. Refillable tanks are made of plastic, glass, or steel. Pre-filled cartridges are also available.
  2. Atomizer – This part is the heating element that causes vaporization.
  3. Battery – This provides electricity to the device. Vape pen batteries are usually rechargeable lithium-ion.
  4. Mouthpiece – This is where the user inhales the vapor from the cannabis product.
