All You Need to Know About Vape Accessories
There is no getting around it … vape gear is ESSENTIAL. No matter what you vape: Dry herbs, Extracts, E-liquids — every device needs support.
Vape pen accessories could be for dry herb vape pens, cleaning supplies, like brushes are necessary. Wax and concentrate pens need things like loading tools, as well as cleaning tools.
Vape mod accessories like coils, glass tubes for tanks, batteries, and chargers, are all a part of the game.
Then, there are the extras. Things that you do not need but they add a personal touch to your device or let you use it in another way. For dry herb and wax vaporizing, for example, glass water pipes are a favorite. Water pipes for dry herb and wax vaporizers serve a function: they cool and purify vapor. But they also look great and make vaping so much more entertaining.
The Best Brands for Vape Gear
As a rule, every vape company includes essential vape accessories in kits for every kind of device. USB chargers, for example, are among the most standard vape mods accessories. Even if a device comes with nothing else – no tank, no coils, no tools – there is always a USB charging cable. In the world of box mods, SMOK and Innokin are two brands known to stuff their kits with the best vape accessories.
SMOK often include things like: Extra o-rings, Colorful, SMOK-branded, rubber bands (that act as glass protectors), Spare glass tubes. Innokin includes things like: Spare parts (glass tubes, o-rings), Tools like Allen keys and screws
Batteries. Innokin is one of the few companies to include batteries in their kits, but not always.
For wax vape pen accessories, a company like Grenco Science is very generous, in this regard. They include loading tools, cleaning tips (called G-tips) and even glass canisters for their wax vape pens.
The Best Places to Buy Vape Accessories
Every vape company sells vape accessories, but usually for their brand. The best place to find cheap vape accessories for all brands, for all devices is online.
Buying vape devices online means saving money through promotions and discounts. At every online check-out, online retailers prompt users with add-ons for various accessories. Besides their main purchase, buyers can also stock up on vape accessories online with one click. Brick-and-mortar stores are also great places to pick up vape gear. A vape shop employee can provide valuable information on brand new accessories, and all the latest vape gear. Only, their prices might be a bit steep, depending on the store and the accessory.
FAQ About Vape Accessories
WHAT VAPE ACCESSORIES ARE ESSENTIAL?
For any device, no matter is it dry herb vaporizer, vape pen or box mod, there are three accessories that are a must-have are:
- USB charging cables
- Battery charger
No device can continue functioning without either of these accessories. Once this need is met, accessories can start to become more personal and individualized rather than practical and functional.
SHOULD I GET VAPE ACCESSORIES?
Vape accessories like the ones listed above are essential. Depending on what kind of vaping is involved, other accessories — like tanks, coils, and e-juice for box mod and e-liquid vapers — are also necessary.
Anything else is entirely up to the consumer. If someone enjoys accessorizing their other personal, electronic devices then they will do the same with their vaping devices. If someone is the opposite and uses their devices as they come, then they will not see the need for accessories.
WHAT KIND OF VAPING DEVICE NEEDS THE MOST ACCESSORIES?
High-wattage box mods and rebuildable atomizers (RBAs) are the vaping devices that most use/need accessories. Box mods are incredibly complex, top-level units that require much more care and effort to be put into them than a disposable e-cig or vape pen.
A box mod itself requires batteries (or not, it can have built-in batteries as well) and/or a USB charger. Box mods need tanks, which is an accessory in and of itself. Tanks, to use one example, can be tricked out with glass expander tubes to increase e-juice capacity, different coils of varying resistances and materials, and even use different drip tips/mouthpieces. Rebuildable tanks (RTAs, RDAs, RBAs) are DIY devices that require their own set of supplies, like tools (tweezers, pliers), wires, wick material (cotton, silica, steel mesh), and ohms readers, all of which are crucial to their use and maintenance.
ARE VAPE ACCESSORIES EXPENSIVE?
They are, and they are not. One cup of coffee is not expensive, but buy one every morning for a year, and they add up.
The same goes for vape accessories. Again, everything depends on what kind of vaping is involved. Generally, e-cigs and vape pens do not need a lot of accessorizing because of their straightforward setups. Dry herb and concentrates device can use a whole range of attachments from glass water pipes, different kind of atomizers and mouthpieces. Not to mention maintenance supplies like cleaning and loading tools, isopropyl alcohol and glass or silicone containers for your materials. Box mods, as has been already discussed, are the devices most prone to accessorization, just try not to go overboard.
VAPES NEED ACCESSORIES
Vapes and vape accessories go hand in hand. The same can be said, though, of almost any electronic device that is used on a daily basis. Vape accessories can keep your vaping device in tip-top shape, make it perform even better, make it great to look at, or make it another device entirely. The best accessories achieve all these points. Accessories can also make vaping much more relaxed, like a practical, sturdy, reliable e-juice bottle like the Chubby Gorilla or the LUC V4 charger.
Whatever the case, finding the best vape accessories means finding the accessory that both supports a device and makes it that much more enjoyable to use.
