Getting their name from their long, cylindrical design, vape pens are some of our most popular e-cigs. A classic style of vape kit, they're an option that doesn’t require any vaping experience thanks to their simple design. They usually produce small amounts of vapour so they’re ideal if you prefer a discreet, Mouth To Lung (MTL) inhale that feels like a cigarette..

With so many vape pen kits on offer, we thought it’d be a good idea to give you a rundown of our favourites. You’ll find a mix of our best-selling pens, staff picks and kits our customers won’t stop talking about. With vapes to suit every budget and vaping style, these are the best vape pens available.

Earning the top spot on our list is the Elf Bar Mate 500, a versatile MTL (Mouth To Lung) pod vape kit. Providing a longer-lasting, greener and cheaper alternative to the incredibly popular Elf Bar disposable vapes, it delivers a restricted cigarette-like inhale. Unlike disposables, when the battery does run out, it's quick to recharge via USB-C. Getting started is easy as thanks to the buttonless design there are no settings or menus – all you need to do is insert a pod and start vaping.

What sets the Elf Mate apart from the other vape kits on this list is its support of both prefilled and refillable pods. Whether you're after the convenience of prefilled pods or the freedom of refillable pods, this vape does it all. It's like two kits in one! The prefilled pods come ready-filled with Elf Bar's most popular flavours from their disposable vape ranges, like Cream Tobacco and Watermelon. The refillable pods work best with e-liquids that are at least 50% PG, such as Elf Bar's own ElfLiq range or our wide range of nic salts.

Based on its larger counterpart, the Xros 3 mini takes the features of the design of the original Xros and packs it into a simple, more portable device. Thanks to its powerful 1000mAh built-in battery, you can enjoy plenty of time vaping before you need a recharge. Plus, there are no buttons or menus to play around with – just inhale on its mouthpiece to get started! From there, you’ll experience an MTL vape.

As for the pods’ built-in coils, they feature a mesh design and will heat e-liquid faster, providing a clearer, deeper flavour with every puff. Each pod is top-filling, making topping up your device less messy, we recommend using a 50% VG vape juice for best results.

Next up is the powerful but pocket-friendly Aspire Flexus Q pod vape kit. The refillable design of this device means you can select from our massive range of e-liquids with thousands of flavours to choose from. The built-in 700mAh battery can be fully charged in just ten minutes. The Flexus Q features low, medium and high power modes allowing you to tailor the amount of vapour produced to your liking while experiencing an MTL draw.

This kit’s pods feature replaceable mesh coils which produce a strong flavour by heating e-liquid quickly. Replacing only the coil is cheaper than replacing the whole pod, and more environmentally friendly too. It’s easy to set up and use, all you need to do is insert a coil into the pod, fill it with e-liquid and you’re ready to go!

The original and best-selling Elfa gets a revamp with the Elfa Pro pod kit. Featuring inhale activation, you can say goodbye to menus and buttons, just inhale on the mouthpiece for an authentic MTL vape. Its compact design still finds room for a rechargeable, built-in 500mAh battery that lasts as long as each pod and can be recharged quickly.

The Elfa Pro pod kit is compatible with Elfa and Elfa Pro prefilled pods, which both feature blends inspired by flavours found in Elf disposables. The pro pods are fitted with a QUAQ mesh coil that’ll deliver improved flavour due to its large surface area that heats e-liquid quickly. Regardless of what flavour you choose, you’ll get up to 600 puffs per pod, and when one runs out you can simply add a new one into the device to get back to vaping.

Next up is the Geekvape Wenax M1 pod vape kit, a pocket-friendly and lightweight MTL device which delivers a small amount of vapour for an inhale that feels like a cigarette. There’s no need to spend time tweaking settings or navigating menus, as the device will automatically adjust the power output to match the coil in the inserted pod. Each pod has a coil built in, so you can swap the pod rather than the coil, for a simpler experience.

The built-in 800mAh battery outputs up to 18W, and it’s designed to provide a stable power output even at low charge levels, so you’ll experience consistent flavour and vapour production all day. The M1 pods feature a rubber mouthpiece so they’re comfortable to use and their built-in mesh coils heat up e-liquid quickly for strong flavour. We recommend filling the kit with 50% PG e-liquid or juices with a higher PG content.

Combining portability with classic, disposable-inspired flavours, the SKE Crystal Plus pod kit delivers all the ease of use of a disposable, but with a rechargeable, 400mAh built-in battery that can reach full charge in half an hour. A fixed power output of 11W will provide a consistent MTL vape, and there are no buttons or menus to worry about, just inhale to vape.

There’s a variety of flavours to choose from, courtesy of the Crystal prefilled pods, and trying something new is simply a case of swapping one pod for another. The pods also come in a 20mg nicotine strength and feature nic salt, so you’ll experience a smooth throat hit and quick craving satisfaction. All in all, if you’re looking to avoid maintenance tasks like refilling, but still want to experiment with different flavours, this may be your best option.

Known as one of the most popular all-in-one vape kits across the globe, the Aspire PockeX All-In-One Starter Kit is a powerful MTL vape pen that offers a level of customisation that’s a cut above most beginner-friendly devices. Thanks to its 1500mAh built-in battery, you’ll experience plenty of vaping in between charges. Plus, there are no buttons or menus to play around with – just press its firing button and inhale on the mouthpiece!

The PockeX is compatible with a wide range of coils from the Nautilus and PockeX coil collections, so you can experience MTL or DTL vaping by switching out your coil. Simply unscrew the PockeX tank and remove the coil from the top of the tank before popping a new one in. If you go for a 0.6 Ohm coil or below, try a 70% VG or above e-liquid, and for the rest, use a 50/50 VG/PG vape juice.

Part of the highly acclaimed Caliburn series, the Cailburn A3 is popular amongst beginner and experienced vapers alike for its simple design. It houses a 520mAh built-in battery with a 13W power output that produces a discreet amount of vapour. Either inhale on the mouthpiece of the device or hold down its firing button to start vaping! Plus, the button doubles up as a lock for this kit, so you can relax knowing it won’t activate in your pocket or bag.

Thanks to its large e-liquid window, you can keep track of your vape juice levels before topping up your pod using its top-filling port. Each Caliburn A3 pod comes packed with a built-in mesh 1.0 Ohm coil that’ll heat e-liquid quickly to deliver improved flavour with every puff.

If you’re after a pen that creates larger amounts of vapour, then you should check out this next one. The OXVA Xlim Pro vape kit might deliver a genuine DTL vape but it’s also a good choice for vapers who want a compact, pocket-friendly piece of hardware. It runs on a built-in 1000mAh battery, which is more powerful than similar pods and pens, and allows you to vape for longer – even at its 30W max power output.

Each kit includes two OXVA Xlim V2 pods with built-in coils (0.6 Ohm and 0.8 Ohm), which will create a moderate amount of vapour for an RDTL (Restricted Direct To Lung) inhale. Refilling the pod with your favourite e-liquid is easily done via the stopper on the top. Speaking of which, it’ll work best with a 50% VG vape juice, with nic salts being a popular choice. If you’re after a more discreet MTL vape, try the 1.2 Ohm pod available separately.
