If you’re interested in your vaping options, you’ve probably heard a lot of terms that didn’t exist just a few years ago. As vaping becomes more popular, we all need to settle on what to call everything.
People have quickly come to agree on “e cigs” as the term for disposable or rechargeable devices that look like tobacco cigarettes. That’s the category of Mistic e cigarettes and Mistic Black disposables.
But what about personal vaporizers and the "vaporizer pen"? These two categories have some minor differences, but they do the same thing: vaporize e liquid with nicotine, water, and flavorings to create a pleasurable experience as satisfying as smoking at a fraction of the cost.
Let’s define the personal vaporizer and then explain how a vaporizer pen is slightly different.
What We Mean by Personal Vaporizer
With refillable tanks and a long lasting battery, the personal vaporizer (PV) offers a popular method of vaping e liquid with a smooth, comfortable, stylish experience. A typical PV consists of a battery-powered vaporizer system and a tank. These two pieces can be detached so the tank can be refilled with e liquid.
The HAUS Personal Vaporizers from Mistic are compact PVs with a large tanks that holds 2 mL of e liquid (the equivalent of two packs of cigarettes). The HAUS and other PVs look nothing like cigarettes — instead offering a sleek, modern look and the ability to hold much more vaping e juice.
Many PVs are larger and bulkier than the HAUS, but they come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Some have a variety of modification options or special features like flashlights. Some vapers like a large PV for use at home and prefer smaller, lighter options away from home.
Ultimately, "personal vaporizer" is a more general term that refers to battery-powered vaping devices with refillable tanks like the HAUS vape pen or Mod.
Is a Personal Vaporizer the Same as a Vaporizer Pens?
The term vaporizer pen (or vape pen) simply refers to a PV that’s roughly the same size and shape as a pen. A typical vape pen will be larger than a common pen. You can say that the HAUS Personal Vaporizer is the size and shape of what some people would call a vaporizer pen.
The vaporizer pen makes things easy for new vapers. Simple to learn and easy to operate, they offer a hassle-free and comfortable experience.
We call the HAUS a personal vaporizer, and essentially it offers the simplicity of a vaporizer pen with a conveniently large e liquid tank to provide lots of puffs. One thing it can't do: write with ink. It's not that kind of pen!
