Are you a smoker looking to make the switch to vaping? With the vast range of options available, choosing the best vape to quit smoking with can be daunting. Don’t worry, we are here to guide you through choosing the best vape for your personal needs.
The best vape for quitting smoking is subjective and there's no 'one size fits all' option. Every smoker and vaper is different and you may prefer certain features and functionality. However, with a bit of reflection on your requirements, you can quickly narrow down your options.
Why Do You Want to Quit Smoking With a Vape?
The first thing to ask yourself is, why are you choosing a vape to quit smoking? The most common reason will be for the harm reduction compared with cigarettes. The NHS states that vaping "poses a small fraction of the risk of smoking cigarettes" and explains that "E-cigarettes do not produce tar or carbon monoxide, two of the most harmful elements in tobacco smoke." The NHS also actively encourages vapes to help smokers quit and the UK government has committed to a 'Swap to Stop' campaign whereby one million smokers will be offered a free vape kit.
Beyond the health reasons, there are also other benefits of vaping over smoking. If any of the following reasons apply to you, then they may have a bearing on your best vape to quit smoking with.
- Cost savings
- Enjoy strong flavours
- Convenience and Ease of use
- Reduce nicotine strength and become nicotine free
We'll work through the reasons and hand-pick some vapes which should help you on your quit smoking journey.
Choosing the Best Vape to Quit Smoking for Cost Savings
Switching from traditional cigarettes to a vape is very likely to save you money regardless of the vape you go for. However, there are some options which are kinder on your wallet than others. If you're looking to keep costs to a minimum, then these vapes are a good place to start.
The AIO Pod E-cigarette is a rechargeable, refillable pod device. The initial price is £18.99 and then you just need to stay topped up with e-liquid and replacement pods. The atomizer head is fixed into the pod which makes life easier. When this atomizer reaches the end of its life, simply replace the pod. This kit is a breeze to use and will save you a pretty penny compared with smoking.
The Skope S is a traditional pen-style e-cigarette which costs £21.99. It consists of a battery, atomizer head and a glass tank system which is refilled with e-liquid. The battery uses eco technology so it should last at least a full day between charges. This low voltage technology is perfect for higher strength e-liquids which will help keep nicotine cravings at bay. The Skope S is offered by numerous quit smoking services across the UK and has demonstrated impressive quit success rates.
The arc 5's initial outlay is a little higher than the other options but it's built to stand the test of time. The arc range of e-cigarettes is renowned for its reliability, sturdiness and versatility. The CS Atomizer heads which are used, excel in longevity so you your ongoing costs will be slightly lower than other e-cigarettes. At £41.99, the arc 5 is a solid investment as you can expect to have it as your trusty vape companion for years to come.
The Best Vape to Quit Smoking if You Enjoy Strong Flavours
Vapes are available in an abundance of different flavours. Whether you go for a disposable vape or a device and e-liquid, you'll be sure to find a flavour you love. If you prefer intense, strong flavours then there a few stand-out devices and e-liquid.
Skope Air with VLTZ E-liquid
VLTZ E-liquid is designed for sweet, intense flavours. Due to this intensity, the e-liquid is only suitable in certain devices. One of these is the Skope Air and the EN 0.8ohm atomizer heads. Beyond the great performance with VLTZ, the Skope Air is a reliable, simple to use pod device. It's also compact and has some handy features like quick charging and two airflow modes.
Designed specifically for use with VLTZ E-liquid, the VLTZ re:fuel is rechargeable and can be refilled. Once the atomizer head reaches the end of its life, the device is disposed of and replaced. This device format results in exceptional flavour representation and ultimate simplicity.
The VLTZ Flex features VLTZ e-liquid in its pre-filled pods, so rightly deserves its position in the strong flavours category. In Totally Wicked stores, you can try all flavours of VLTZ at our testing stations. Find your nearest store at our store finder and give these intense flavours a try.
The Best Vape to Quit Smoking For Convenience and Simplicty
If you're after a hassle-free but effective experience when quitting smoking, these vapes are for you. There's limited maintenance involved and little room for error.
The obvious convenient choice to go for would be disposables. However, they do have drawbacks in terms of cost and their environmental impact. When opting for disposable vapes to curb your smoking habit then please return them to your local Totally wicked store or recycling points so they can be recycled responsibly.
For vapers who like sweet flavours, Elf Bars and Lost Marys are a popular choice. There's a huge range of flavours and they provide a reliable experience. If you prefer more traditional flavours, the Totally Wicked disposable vape pen is the one to go for. This disposable vape features UK made e-liquid which is produced in Lancashire.
Pre-filled pod systems remove the need to change atomizer heads or refill with e-liquid. They consist of a rechargeable battery and pods which are already filled with e-liquid. Once the pods run dry, dispose of it responsibly and a insert a new pod.
If you like strong, sweet flavours similar to those experienced in disposables, the VLTZ Flex is a great option. If you prefer more traditional flavours like tobacco or menthol then the Totally Wicked byte is the pre-filled pod to choose.
Choosing the Best Vape to Quit Smoking and Reduce Nicotine Strength
Not only can vapes help you quit smoking, they also allow you to reduce your nicotine strength. This can ultimately allow you to become nicotine free. E-liquids come in different strengths which many vapers reduce over time. This can be achieved with any device but is more suited to devices with adjustable wattage. A slight increase in power output, as you decrease your nicotine strength, is a good way to ease the process.
The arc Impact has numerous features but remains incredibly simple to use. It has adjustable wattage from 1 - 40W so you can tinker to find your ideal wattage for your e-liquid strength. It looks the part and has handy features like sliding top fill and quick charging to make vaping a breeze.
The Tornado GTL has the popular pen-style format but also has three power modes. As well as allowing you to change your output level, this device excels in terms of ease of use, value and aesthetics. Now proving itself as one of Totally Wicked's most popular vapes, the Tornado GTL is a great choice.
Do you like the look of a box style vape with adjustable power but want something a little more compact? The arc Mini is a firm favourite among Totally Wicked vapers and has certainly stood the test of time. This vape has up to 20W of adjustable power with CS atomizer heads and a screen to show your settings. It has helped countless smokers quit over the years and continues to be popular among all types of vapers.
Remember, you can reduce your nicotine strength with any refillable e-cigarette. If this is your plan, go for an e-liquid with a lot of different strengths, like Red Label.
