I went to my favorite local vape shop the other day after they told me that they already have my favorite e liquid on stock and it is ready for pick up. As they were packing all the stuff I ordered, I looked around their shop and realized that the number of pod style vaporizers on display to the normal mods are greater than ever. This is where I realized that the pod systems are really taking over the vaping industry and as you guessed, we are going to take a look at a new pod style vaporizer from Vype called the ePen 3.

There are a lot of pod systems on the market that has a similar shape and design and while the Vype ePen 3 has kind of a similar looking design, it has some unique aspects to it.

It has 6 different color options ranging from black, red, gold, blue, white, gray, which might seem like a basic range of colors but the coating is well made it doesn’t feel cheap.

The coating has some kind of a soft touch rubber feel to it and it really feels good to the touch. The coating is also complemented by its body shape that makes the device ergonomic and really good to hold in the hand. The thing that surprised me though is that the Vype ePen 3 is very lightweight which is in stark contrast to what I imagined it to weigh.

Even though the shape and design of the Vype ePen are sleek and ergonomic, you can’t deny that it one of the largest pod systems on the market. Comparing its size to the Juul or the Smok Fit, the Vype ePen is almost as twice as big.

This is mainly due to the fact that the Vype ePen 3 has a big built-in battery that has a capacity of 650 mah. But this is one area where I think they could have done better as there are some smaller pod systems that actually have bigger batteries.

Its battery life is impressive though as it could last a whole day of casual vaping and charging it from zero will only take 2 hours. Using the Vype ePen 3 is as easy as any other normal pod systems. It has 2 parts which are the body and the 2ml pod.

The kit comes with 2 pods and all you have to do is insert a pre-filled pod to the main body and when you hear a click, you are ready to vape. But unlike most pod systems, the Vype ePen 3 doesn’t have the fancy automatic draw system where you can just take a drag to vape.

It still has a small fire button on the front of the device where you need to press to vape but the good thing is, it also serves as the on an off switch which adds the most important safety feature which a lot of companies tend to disregard.

The Vype ePen 3 comes with 2 pods out of the box. The pods are non-refillable and unfortunately, they are not offering a refillable pod. The pods that came with the box are blended tobacco and crisp mint which are both 18mg in nicotine strength.

For a beginner device, the Vype ePen 3 actually performs just like how you would expect a pod system would vape. It is not a sub ohm device but it actually works as a good replacement for cigarettes if you want to quit. The flavor was excellent especially with the blended tobacco while the crisp mint tastes like your typical mint bubblegum.

Vapor production isn’t one of its strong suites though which is to be expected on a low powered device and while it isn’t a cloud chucker, it is actually more than adequate and satisfying enough. The airflow is also just right, a bit tight and restrictive for a true mouth to lung vaping experience.

Also, one pretty cool feature of the Vype ePen 3 is when the e liquid runs dry, the LED light on the fire button will blink red and the device will turn off. This is actually a really neat feature as you don’t have to constantly pull the pod out to check the remaining e liquid.

Since the Vype ePen 3 is a pod system, you can’t really expect much from it aside from being a very simple low powered beginner device. It doesn’t have any settings you can adjust to suit your vaping style and it will always be a mouth to lung device.

It is also a bummer that it doesn’t have a refillable pod but at least they are offering 13 different flavors that include some fruit, menthol, pastry and tobacco flavors. Each of these flavor variants also has an option for different nicotine strengths from 0 to 18mg.

Portability

The Vype ePen 3 might be the biggest pod system on the market. It is 123mm in height, 27mm in length and 18mm in width.

But even if it is big compared to most pod systems on the market, it is still quite slim and compact due to its shape and design. It is very lightweight and you won’t have problems keeping it in your pocket when you are out and about.

Conclusion

There are many things that can be improved with the Vype ePen 3 like its size and the non-refillable pod. Flavor choices are about as lackluster as the flavor. Not to mention that the pen is simply big tobacco trying to get in on the vape game.

For those just starting out, you may be better served by a unit like the Jücee Slice, which offers, auto-puff as opposed to a button, producing very nice vapor and flavor, while remaining more compact and easier to use than the Smok Nord.  If you are looking for something a good starter mod style vape check out the SMOK Procolor.
