Top 10 Vape Pen/Tube/Stick Style Vape Mods

By a show of hands, how many people started their vape journey with a vape pen or tube-style vape mod? I would guess there’s more than a few. It wasn’t THAT long ago that a long, tubular eGo pen was the epitome of “advanced” vaping, with rotating voltage dials and 1mL cartomizer tanks that separated us from the disposable cig-a-like masses.

 

After that, even larger pen-style devices began to pop up, such as the premium ProVari and Lavatube mods, as well as the economically priced Vamo which gave us a staggering 11 watts of output at a bargain basement cost.

Top 10 Vape Pen/Tube/Stick Style Regulated Mods for 2018 BY SPINFUEL VAPE

Fast forward a few years, and this style of vape device has long been supplanted by the ubiquitous box mod… or has it? While there are probably 20 new boxes for every pen-style vape we see, there HAS been a recent resurgence in this form factor of late, which marry old-school design with new technology and functionality.

 

But it takes more than just cramming a regulated chipset into a shiny tube to make a good pen/tube/stick vape mod. Many of the items on the list below represent old-fashioned experiences, while others offer the latest in sub-ohm, cloud-chucking technology. Despite the similar formats, these devices offer unique experiences, and are all worthy of your attention.

 

So, why belabor this? Let’s check out what our team feels are the top pen/tube/stick-style vape mods – some of these names might surprise you, but we’re pretty sure all of them will satisfy those looking for a quality vape.

VAPORESSO CASCADE ONE / ONE PLUS STARTER KIT

The Vaporesso Cascade was one of our favorite high-wattage sub-ohm tanksthis year, so we have to admit, we were a little disappointed when we learned the Cascade Mini would not be using the same coil heads. However, our fears quickly disappeared when we got our hands on the direct voltage Cascade One starter kit, complete with a Cascade Mini tank, and a pair of new GT cores.

As you might recall, we’re big fans of the NRG tank, and the Cascade Mini takes those proven GT cores even further in this kit, which offers both an 0.3-ohm GT CCELL 2, and an all-new GT Mesh, focused on pure flavor. While this might seem like a copy of the company’s own NRG tanks, the smaller Cascade tanks use the same isolated juice flow and airflow control as their big brother, leading to an entirely new experience throughout.

Now, we’ve only spent time with the original Cascade One, but Vaporesso is actually producing two versions of this direct voltage stick mod, leading with the original Cascade One, a slender, compact form factor stick mod, with an 1,800mAh battery and the 3.5mL Cascade Baby tank. Then there’s the larger, higher-capacity Cascade One PLUS, which has a 3,000 mAh battery, and the 5mL Cascade Mini tank.

Confused yet? Well, let me make it easier for you – no matter which edition you choose, the Cascade One mod is driven by a specialized version of the highly-regarded OMNI chipset, which brings a wealth of protection measures, smart atomizer detection and more, along with a tank that marries two of our favorite sub-ohm offerings from the last 12-18 months.

Wismec Sinuous P80 SW 50W Starter Kit

One of the largest, most-prolific box mod companies around, I hadn’t seen a regulated tube mod from the company until the Sinuous P80 crossed my desk. The gorgeous all-in-one device borrows several design cues from the Sinuous line of box mods, and to good effect – you’ll have no trouble picking out the Sinuous P80 from other tube mods in your collection.

But beyond the pretty looks lies a very capable, “plug and play” setup designed to accommodate vapers who appreciate power, but also want hassle-free convenience and all-day capability. It starts with the 3,000mAh internal battery, which doesn’t seem like a tremendous amount of longevity, yet the Sinuous P80 continues to give us several strong hours of regular use, and a full day of casual use, every time we fire it up.

The name “P80” is a LITTLE misleading, to be honest, as the mod is actually a 50-watt device, operating with a direct voltage setup that offers simplicity, while still maintaining the necessary protection measures and readouts so common with today’s leading vape mods.

Another fantastic addition is the Wismec Elabo Mini sub-ohm tank, which offers a surprisingly abundant cloud production thanks to significant airflow, and Wismec’s capable WS Coil Technology. The coils are actually rated to go higher than the mod’s 50-watt limit, giving this kit even more versatility than expected.

Ultimately, we feel the Sinuous P80 is perfect for entry level users, or those looking for a hassle-free back-up kit. But that’s not to take away from this simple, attractive, high-performing pairing since they make a very attractive combination for vapers of any skill level.

Wismec Sinuous P80 SW 50W Battery Specs:

  • 28mm Diameter
  • Internal 3,000mAh Rechargeable Battery
  • Maximum Output Wattage: 50W
  • Ergonomic Contour
  • Modernized Sword-Inspired Design

SMOK STICK PRINCE KIT - PEN-STYLE TFV12 PRINCE

The Stick Prince Makes Another List!

If you’re following along our recent “Best of” and “Top 10” pieces these past couple of months, this is not the first time you’ve seen the SMOK Stick Prince.

Uwell Nunchaku Kit

For more controlled experiences, we heartily recommend the flashy Uwell Nunchaku mod kit, which delivers easy-to-use, enjoyable power, while remaining true to the compact nature of the mod. And, strangely enough, we found the Nunchaku worked best when being used in bypass mode, replicating a mech mod experience.

 

Simplicity is the name of the game with the Nunchaku Mod Kit, and it delivers. Just seconds after installing the 18650 battery, I was vaping at a modest 45 watts, and enjoying the experience. And things only got better as I moved toward the Nunchaku’s 80-watt maximum.

 

In power mode, the Nunchaku ramped smoothly, and hit its marks without much trouble. As a single-18650 device, power expectations need to be tempered, but overall, users won’t find much to complain about.

 

The Nunchaku also has limited temp control functionality, which was surprisingly effective, and offered solid TC performance, even with the compact display and menu system.

 

But again, I found the most enjoyment from using the Nunchaku as a mechanical-type mod, through bypass mode. I almost never bother with this type of vaping, but with the Nunchaku, I thought it might be good to go retro, and see how direct voltage vaping worked on battery life. And sure enough, it provided the steadiest, longest battery life of the three available modes.

 

Also, looks shouldn’t matter much – especially on a tube-style vape mod, but the Uwell Nunchaku might be the most ergonomic, comfortable, downright attractive stick device we’ve seen in ages. Uwell is new to vape device manufacturing, but it’s clear they’ve been taking notes, because their initial efforts have been fantastic. Fans of fully featured stick mods need not look any further than this.

Uwell Nunchaku Mod Kit specs:

  • Size: 27.4 mm x 94.5 mm
  • Material: stainless steel
  • Power range: 5-80W
  • Voltage range: 0.7-7V
  • Resistance range: 0.1-3 ohms (VW), 0.1-1ohms (TC), 0.1-0.5ohms (Bypass)
  • Multiple work modes: power mode, TC mode (NI, SS), bypass mode.
  • Replaceable 18650 battery, or charge over USB

Uwell Nunchaku Mod Kit contents:

  • Uwell Nunchaku mod
  • Uwell Nunchaku tank
  • Extra quartz glass
  • 0.25Ω coil (installed)
  • 0.4Ω coil
  • Pack of replacement O-rings
  • Micro USB cable

Shanlaan Laan Pod Mod 40W Starter Kit

I had a lot of internal debate about including the Shanlaan Laan Pod Mod to this list. But based on aesthetics alone, the Laan IS shaped like a tube/stick AND hits 40 watts of output… so why shouldn’t it be included?

 

Then I vaped one and realized it warranted a spot on this (and several other) top 10 rundowns. No, this isn’t your standard pod device. Whereas most pods barely break 12-15 watts, the Laan more than triples that output.

 

The internal 1,300mAh battery does its just remarkably well for a device that can push 40 watts. It might not be “all day” duration, but the Laan lasted a lot longer than we expected – and that’s with fairly steady vaping. For a quick night out with friends, the Laan should offer more than enough longevity to carry you through.

 

The mod itself is surprisingly compact, considering the amount of technology inside the aluminum, leather-wrapped chassis, right down to a throwback draw-activated firing system that makes the Laan safe for any pocket or purse, without worry of misfires or accidental adjustments.

 

No, I didn’t really want a pod system to make this list of best tube/stick style vape mods, but the unique Shaanlaan Laan is a hybrid of a few really good ideas, and serves as a highly portable, satisfying bridge between lower-powered beginner mods, and high-end performance.

Shanlaan Laan Pod Mod 40W Starter Kit Specs:

  • All-In-One Design
  • 2mL Maximum Juice Reservoir
  • Built-In 1300mAh Internal Battery
  • Maximum Wattage Output: 40W
  • Temperature Control Support
  • Operational Adjustments via Bluetooth Technology
  • Draw-Activated Firing Mechanism
  • Child Lock Functionality
  • Lightweight, Corrosion-Proof Aluminum Metal
  • Embossed Premium Leather Grip
  • Flip-Top Bottom Micro-USB Port
  • Replaceable Sub-Ohm Tank Section – Refillable Design
  • Top Airflow Control – Leak-Resistance Design
  • Convenient Top-Fill Method
  • Proprietary Poco Pin Connection

Ply Rock Vindica Slim Pen Starter Kit

A month ago, I had never heard of Ply Rock. Today, two of the company’s devices have made our top 10 rundowns. That’s because the Ply Rock Vindica Slim Pen vape mod is a loving tribute to the salad days of vaping, while also showing how there’s still plenty of room for improvement and potential in the pen-style vape format.

This fully featured, unibody mod design comes with a 1,100mAh integrated battery, leak-free top airflow design, and a compact, rounded structure that makes the Vindica perfect for travel, or any environment in which discretion is a must. That said, the Vindica is equally comfortable as an MTL or sub-ohm device, and the included 0.5-ohm coil provides enough vapor production to ruin that discretion at any moment.

(Hey, “Vindica” is a play on “vindicate,” which means “to free.” Perhaps the freedom to choose how you use the device is what Ply Rock is going for with this naming idea.)

What separates the Vindica from countless other vape pens is the vibrant, easily legible OLED display, which has a good range of pertinent information onscreen, allowing newcomers to get a sense of what’s happening under the hood, even if there aren’t any adjustments available to them. Instead, this direct voltage setup is auto-adjusting, with single-button operation.

Simple and powerful – these have been the hallmarks of the two Ply Rock vape mods I’ve seen so far, and both have delivered in a very big way.

Ply Rock Vindica Slim Pen Battery Specs:

  • 19mm Diameter
  • Integrated 1100mAh Battery
  • Unibody Design
  • Auto-Adjusting Output Setting
  • Direct Voltage Output System
  • Maximum Output: 35W
  • Single Button Operation
  • Intuitive OLED Display
  • Micro-USB Charging Port

Joyetech eGo AIO ECO Starter Kit

The original eGo AIO was a throwback to the original eGo pens of yore. The Joyetech eGo AIO ECO is a loving throwback to THAT throwback, and it’s a damn good one at that. Taking the same core vape pen design, adding a slightly larger battery, bright LED enhancements, and some unique design elements, the ultra-slim eGo AIO ECO is a truly pocketable, portable system with a surprisingly powerful punch.

 

Using the built-in TFTA tank system, the eGo AIO ECO (boy, that’s a mouthful after a while) provides smooth, but potent draws through its unique 0.5-ohm MTL coils. No, you won’t be fogging rooms with the eGo AIO ECO, but you WILL be enjoying sharp, nuanced flavor, and satisfying throat hit instead.

 

At first, the 650mAh battery doesn’t instill much confidence in all-day performance – and it’s not going to give you that, make no mistake. But we were pleasantly surprised by the two or so hours of casual vaping we enjoyed on the 650mAh cell, even with the LED lights going.

 

Even though the slender and compact eGO AIO ECO is a throwback to simpler times, the device features several interesting features. For starters, the constant voltage output is a unique way to ensure the same quality of draw, first puff to last. And the dual circuit protection chipset does a good job keeping things safe for newcomers.

Joyetech eGo AIO ECO Starter Kit Specs:

  • 14mm Diameter
  • 1.2mL Juice Capacity
  • Integrated 650mAh Internal Battery
  • All-In-One Design
  • Single Button Operation
  • Constant Output Voltage: 1.85V
  • Back-Lit Button LED Battery Life Indicator
  • Customizable LED Light-Up Lights
  • Adjustable Top Airflow Control – 13mm by 2mm Air slots
  • Leak-Proof Threaded Top-Fill Method
  • Delrin Wide bore Drip Tip

Joyetech Exceed D19

It appears Joyetech – the originator of the classic eGo pen design – is all in on a resurgence. Not only is the eGo AIO ECO a fantastic little vape kit, but the newer Joyetech Exceed D19 offers the same quality vape, with more control over the experience.

 

And, while we certainly understand the need for simplicity in a tube/stick style vape mod, we also like having a little more flexibility than is currently offered by closed/pod systems. In turn, advanced vapers might enjoy stepping back to something more portable, while still enjoying a high-quality, hard-hitting vape.

 

The Joyetech Exceed D19 kit takes this concept past “entry-level” status by introducing a sub-ohm coil, a little more control over the power, and an overall more-advanced feel to the proceedings. It also doesn’t hurt that the flavor is quite good for such a diminutive setup.

 

Overall, the Exceed D19 fits is a natural evolution of the standard vape pen; it’s not a chain-vaping setup, but the kit is recommended for MTL vapers looking for occasional use. Under that scenario, I can see the Exceed far surpassing most devices in this category – the flavor is that good.

 

For a simplified device aimed at people seeking a no-frills experience, the Exceed D19 kit is pretty impressive. While the battery life is a little lower than we originally expected, we’ve seen it “stretch out” over time, making it a more-than-capable companion to have with you on road trips, in discreet situations, and the like.

 

More importantly, the Joyetech Exceed D19 offers a surprisingly rich, flavorful vape, for any kind of vaper.

 

Joyetech Exceed D19 mod specs:

  • Size: 19 x 76mm
  • Battery Capacity: 1,500 mAh
  • Max Output Wattage: 40w
  • Mode: Direct output mode & constant voltage output
  • Thread: 510 thread

 

Joyetech Exceed D19 tank specs:

  • Size: 19 x 42mm
  • Capacity: 2ml
  • Coil: EX 1.2-ohm MTL head (8-15w) / EX 0.5-ohm DL head (20 – 35w)
  • Thread: 510 Thread

Eleaf iJust NexGen All-In-One Starter Kit

Eleaf may not be a company you think of when you hear “pen-style vape” but the veteran company recently released the iJust NexGen AIO kit — their take on what a modern pen/stick device would look like. And you know what? The results are pretty damn impressive.

 

One of the lankier devices on our list, the 117mm tall iJust NexGen clearly has loftier aspirations than just occasional puffs. With 50 watts of potential power, integrated 3,000 mAh battery, a 4mL reservoir for the HW-series sub-ohm coils, and a wealth of protections, this direct voltage setup wants to keep things simple, without sacrificing power or performance.

 

And it does just that. The NexGen is very much a “smart” mechanical mod, meaning the output power correlates to the battery power, but is protected against power spikes, battery dips and other concerns. It even has a simple, but clearly defined LED light indicator, that lets users know what’s up without getting in the way or becoming overly complicated.

 

The integrated tank system concerned me at the start, but the 4mL chamber worked really well with the replaceable HW coils – both of which are capable of much higher wattages than the iJust puts out, I might add. We enjoyed smooth draws and flavorful puffs throughout our time with the kit, and the vapor production was out of this world – especially for a setup so simple and user-friendly.

 

For adjustment-free sub-ohming, the Eleaf iJust NexGen is a very strong entry, at a very attractive price point.

 

Eleaf iJust NexGen Mod Specs:

  • 24.5mm Diameter
  • Integrated 3,000mAh Battery
  • Output Voltage Range: 3.2-4.2V
  • Minimum Atomizer Resistance: 0.15ohm
  • Single Button Operation

SMOK Stick X8 Kit

We weren’t sure we wanted two SMOK devices in our top 10 pen/tube/stick mod breakdown, but the company is so prolific, I’m not sure we could avoid it! Indeed, while a little older – and honestly, not nearly as attractive as the Stick Prince we covered earlier – the SMOK Stick X8 is still a fantastic option for vapers looking for less hassle, but top-flight protection and performance.

 

Another direct voltage pen-style mod, the Stick X8 also implements the “smart mechanical” approach, which brings with it a wealth of protection measures, including Timed Cutoff, Low Resistance Protection, Short Circuit Protection and Low Voltage Protection. On top of that, the intelligent battery monitoring ensure that this mechanical mod experience doesn’t leave newcomers out in the cold.

 

Perhaps most attractive to users is the SMOK X-Baby tank and coil system, which includes a pair of heads designed for direct voltage use. While our impression of the X-Baby was that it was a little unnecessary, it makes for a good pairing with the Stick X8 mod and performs well with the two specialty coils.

 

All in all, the SMOK Stick X8 kit is a no-nonsense offering, with straightforward design, amenities and controls, making it a true “plug and play” device in an industry known for overcomplicating devices.

Choosing the Top 10 of the Best

So many of the current and available stick-like devices on the market share overly similar specs and features, making it very difficult for the consumer to choose the right device. That one (or two) inexpensive vape kits that earn their keep, perform and last a good long while. Curating the cream of the chop took time, but for the experienced, choosing which devices should be included on this Top 10 of the Best Vape Pen/Tube Style/ yet, regulated Mod wasn’t all that difficult.

 

While the same is also true of every Best of or Top 10 piece we’ve done to date, we felt these 10 represented a nice cross-section of the various types of pen-style vape products that rise to the occasion. Some have external cells, tanks, coils, and can be adjusted, others are internal with direct voltage power, and nothing more to do than to load it up with e-liquid, squeeze the fire button and enjoy. Mouth to lung? Sub-ohm? That’s covered, too.

 

If you’re looking for that special pen/tube shaped vape mod, then look no further than this list. Read our real-world experience with the devices and decide which one(s) you might want to try. Every Kit we chose we live up to the following; performance, value, durability, and vape satisfaction.
