Since there is a huge uptake and use from many Filipinos ages 18 and above especially those residing in Metro Manila, Cebu City, and Davao whose now including vape pens in their trendy lifestyle. We decided to list out the best vape pens in the Philippines.
Here's the Top 5 Best Vape Pen Brands in the Philippines:
YOOZ - A vaping experience just like a cigarette
One of the market leaders, YOOZ vape pens are known to be one of the only vape pens out there that creates and closes the gap for an e-cigarette nicotine level that is comparable to an actual cigarette nicotine level.
What's Inside: A typical YOOZ vape pen package includes 1 Device piece and 1 cable piece. It is built with aviation aluminum and comes with a built-in battery capacity of 350 mAh, with a bottom connector which is a USB Type-C.
A cartridge is good for 3-5 days, you can expect 500 puffs of pod endurance or the rate of 2-3 packs of cigarettes. YOOZ also comes with a lithium-ion battery, a circuit board, and an impressive pressure sensor. It is heat resistant and has a stainless- steel vapor path. Vapers can expect a softer effect on the throat, with less risk of dry burn because of the broad atomizer inlet.
The How: YOOZ is known to use nicotine salts that are found in tobacco leaves. Nicotine salt allows users to vape with higher nicotine strengths without any rough effect on the throat.
The Pros: Vapers end up using less vape because they already receive a bigger dosage of nicotine.
It also comes with natural flavors, and is very simple to use. It has no buttons or switches; users can just insert the pod and puff away! A big plus too is that it is without that dreaded nicotine-odor, with zero ash and convenient to carry.
If fully charged, you can use the device for 2 days, there is also no vapor produced while charging.
The Cons: Just like any vape pen, you can still expect a pod leakage and some users also stated issues with regards to the difficulty of the pod replacement process. However, if compared with other brands YOOZ seems to handle this issue better.
SnowPlus - A quality vape with longer battery life
SnowPlus vape pens offer a unique feature amongst the crowded vape pen models out -- it boasts an 18 minute total charging time through its ‘Super Charge Technology’.
What's Inside: SnowPlus Pod system comes with a 450mAh battery as well as USB-C fast charging with claims of an 18 Minute charge time. The pod system is made out of a zinc alloy body with a rubberized finish and dust and water-resistant coating.
The How: SnowPlus pods are made from Easterman Tritan Copolyster which is a BPA free material while the coil/atomiser on the inside is ‘Truefeel HoneyComb Ceramic’ which is said to help the smooth mouthfeel and strong throat hit it exudes.
The Pros: One of the many revolutionary benefits of this pod is definitely the 18-minutes of SuperCharge Technology, which provides an undeniably enjoyable performance for vape users as it allows them the ease of not having to wait for a long time for them to use it again. Not only that, but this vape pen product comes with a zinc alloy body and a rubberized finish that also has a dust and water-resistant coating that will ensure that the products last longer.
Cons: One of the biggest drawbacks for me personally, would be the fact that the basic pod system package doesn't come with pods itself. I mean I get why they are doing that but it is just disappointing. So a word to the wise, for those wanting to try this out -- make sure to purchase a separate pod. The only other drawback would be that the pods come with a strength of up to 30mg and 50mg, which means that this has limitations when it comes to the countries that can avail of it. ettes are sometimes promoted as ways to help cigarette smokers
Allo Disposable Vape - The best disposable vape pen
The Allo disposable is one of the single-use vaping devices that comes pre-filled with amazing flavors. No charging or re-filling and comes ready to vape out the box. No Mess No Fuss - as directly advertised by the manufacturers.

The How: Being one of the only known disposable vape pens around, Allo is known for its all-in-one ready to vape nicotine delivery system specifically designed to be disposed off after use.

This vape pen is said to pack the most flavor compared with other vape products and is the closest to the traditional 1 pack use of a cigarette. This is the simplest model out of all the vape pens we saw so far.
Cons: Along with the environmental impact of needing to get a new disposable vape pen every time we empty it out, another drawback is that some flavours like the grape flavor is said to have a soapy taste to it.
RELX - a satisfying globally popular vape pen
RELX is a classic and a popular beginner vape pen globally. In some parts of the world, the brand RELX is already synonymous with all types of vape pen available.

Growing at a rapid pace, it's almost certain that YOOZ might surpass the current vape market leaders in the country. It's only a matter of time whether they come out on top or fall behind.
