Hear ye, hear ye…
Last night, I peered intensely into my crystal ball screen (and a bazillion of Google search tabs) and saw all manner of exciting vape-related stuff that will likely happen as we navigate through 2021.
And I thought…my peeps over at blog will definitely want to know about these.
So here I am, writing to you about 2021 vaping trends.
Here’s the deal, though — none of this is groundbreaking stuff.
These vaping trends started shaping up in 2020, and I’m just here predicting that their momentum will continue in 2021. So if you’re expecting me to talk about vape body implants,
I’m gonna have to disappoint you.
The future of vaping is not a Star Trek novel… but that doesn’t mean it’s not exciting.
Wanna learn more about it and get ready?
It’s All About Smaller Devices
This one is a no-brainer, really.
Year in, year out, vape devices keep getting smaller and smaller.
When I started vaping, chasing clouds was my go-to. Of course, that meant that my mod could have easily been mistaken for a lightsaber hilt.
These days, that is not the case.
Even cloud-chasing devices are discrete and compact. And M2L set-ups are virtually tiny. Just check out any of the more popular pod devices on the market right now.
Small, easy to use, compact, sturdy — that’s where the game is at now. And that’s where I see it continuing in the future.
In fact, we’re so convinced that small, portable vape devices are the future, that our latest product is the smallest vaporizer we’ve ever manufactured. If you’re looking for a fits-in-your-pocket type of device that still packs a punch when it comes to vapor production and flavor, don’t look further than the Breezy.
Vapers Wanna Know What’s In Their Vape
Don’t let me get started on the whole drama that went on and on when flavors got banned.
People started to turn towards the black market buying all kinds of shady stuff. Vaping got a really bad rep for that.
But, finally, we as a community started to regain our senses, and for the good.
After all the stories, and people getting hospitalized I honestly think, and for the better future of vaping, that no one will ever try to buy something off the black market.
Every vaper should be more invested in knowing what’s in their vape. Period.
3-in-1 Devices Are Making a Comeback
While we’re on the subject of small but convenient vape devices…
Get yourself a 3-in-1 vape device!
If you’re like me, and you like to hit your vape juices, concentrates, and oils every once in a while, a 3-in-1 vape device is such a cool thing to have.
No… this device won’t replace your go-to vapes for each of these things. However, it will be a thing you go to when you know that you want to enjoy your dabs and your e-liquids and you don’t want to carry a backpack for all your vaporizers.
One device to rule them all… that’s what you sometimes need. And that vape device is called the Jiggy.
Let’s dig in.
Nicotine Salts With Lower Nic Levels
Nicotine salts started to get noticed around 2019. And it seems that they will become one of the new vaping trends in 2021.
Nic salts, for those of you who don’t know, are a combo of benzoic acid with the naturally occurring salts found in tobacco leaf.
Their main feature (and the main thing people fall in love with at the start) is the similar nicotine hit as regular cigarettes. For people that just got started with transition, these are a way to go.
On top of that, the flavors are top-notch.
But, currently, Nic salts are quite strong. Nicotine levels are high which suits new members of the vaping world because it still resembles combustible cigarettes. And, even though experienced vapers dig them too, I think in the future of vaping we can expect to get a bit lower levels.
These lower-nic-level nicotine salts will be better suited for D2L devices, and they won’t have such a harsh hit. Right now, they can only be used in high-resistance M2L devices or pods. But I have a feeling that’s about to change soon.
Resilient Devices (About Time!)
C’mon, let’s get honest here… how often do you drop your vape device?
I do it once per day, at least.
And if it’s a flimsy pen or a mod with a lot of bells and whistles, I dread picking it up because I know something will be busted.
Well, vape manufacturers are finally wising up to this, as they’ve started creating devices that are much more resilient.
Vapers Are Going Environment-Friendly
Just remember how many times cigarette buds ended up at the sole of your shoe the moment you were done with it.
Ditching cigarettes is a major thing for your health. Did you know that in doing that you also directly benefit nature?
Do you already feel like nature’s best friend? Well, there are more things you can do and it will not take too much effort.
Make your own coils… Most of you will automatically think that you need to have an atomizer and mod to fit the story, but that’s not the case here. Even pod systems have rebuildable capabilities meaning not only will you be more eco-friendly, but also save some money. On top of that, your coils will last longer because you can clean them instead of making new ones every week or two.
Another thing… e-juice disposal.
If there are some flavors you don’t like, and don’t have anyone to “gift” them, don’t throw them in the trash, just like that.
The best thing you can do is use some sort of material that will absorb that type of liquid, something like sawdust, wood chippings, or even something simple as natural kitty litter.
Even these few things can make a change. Be kind to Earth, it’s the only home we got.
Focus On Longer Battery Life
The funny thing about this topic is that too many times when I needed to go somewhere my pod was on low battery. Like I’m cursed or something.
And every time I tell myself that I’ll recharge it on time and everything but… No…
I know I’m not the only one with battery issues (more like bad at battery management).
On the bright side, with every new device, batteries (integrated ones) seem to last longer.
On top of that, charging is becoming faster.
All in all, with every year we get more juice to fuel our devices meaning 2021 won’t be any different. I’m spying a vaping trend that’s gonna fuel battery research so that we end up with awesome batteries (and never have to engage in pass-through vaping again!).
Disposable Vapes Bars Built To Last
If you are a casual vaper and don’t want to be bothered with usual vape stuff like bottles of vape juice, coils, batteries, cotton, etc. then you are probably using vape bars instead.
The common “challenge” (I try to avoid word: problem) with disposable vape bars is that they usually don’t last long.
I’ve dabbled with a few of them just to feed my curiosity and to be honest, in the long run, they are quite expensive.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to bash on anyone who loves them…
But I just don’t get it. Or, I should say, I didn’t get it.
From what I managed to investigate, disposable vape bars are getting better. They last longer, they are cheaper (you can’t miss an online discount or promotion even if you want to) and convenient.
For us lazy people who drain the last percent of battery from our devices, it’s good to have one or two of these in our pockets.
Mobile App Integrations For the Win
Oh man, I am so geeking out right now!
So… It’s been a matter of time when vaping will meet other technologies.
There are a ton of apps in any app store (both Apple and Android) that will guide you and help you out with anything vaping-related.
I checked a few and they are really great. Devs are quite involved in everything, ratings are above average (4.5, minimum). And the reviews are smashing.
To be honest, when I first saw this I was mad… Proper mad.
All these apps let you know how to make the perfect coil, how to mix perfect juice. There is even a calculator which will do the math and determine the optimal voltage to vape on, calculating the coil resistance, calculating the surface power, calculating the length of the wire, and input voltage with a range of 1 to 20 volts. It also calculates Claptons accurately…
I mean… come on!
I had to learn that all by myself, and it was all trial and error. So much wire wasted cutting it too short or not priming it properly. ***sigh***
Still, I’m totally excited for fresh vapers coming into the game — at least they won’t get as frustrated as I did.
What Do You Think About These Vaping Trends for 2021?
Or, better yet…
Do you have any extra vaping predictions for 2021 that I didn’t mention?
Let me know what you think — are smaller devices going to win out? Is 3-in-1 vaping as popular as I believe (or is it just wishful thinking on my part)?
Looking forward to your insights… if you got any.
