How to Use Vype ePen 3 & Frequently Asked Questions - 180 Smoke

How to Use Vype ePen 3 & Frequently Asked Questions

May 10, 2019 | Buying Guides, FAQ, Vaping, Vaping Wiki

With pod systems increasing in popularity over the last few years, brands like Vype have truly led the way with innovative technology and quality product design. Offering both open and closed pod systems have allowed the brand to welcome all levels of vapers and their commitment to their products has cemented the brand as a viable option for both new and experienced vapers.

For new vapers, we have compiled answers to a few frequently asked questions about Vype, which will hopefully lead you to make an informed and knowledgeable purchase.

What is Vype?

Simply put, Vype is an e-cigarette manufacturer that focuses its efforts on creating high quality alternatives to traditional cigarettes. To accomplish this, Vype draws on BAT’s (British American Tobacco) 100+ years of experience as a cigarette manufacturer to create a modern alternative that is uniquely satisfying.

What products does Vype offer?

Vype primarily focuses its efforts on creating impressive pod-based vape kits. This style of vape has become incredibly popular in recent years and is often seen as the perfect device for smokers looking to transition into vaping.

While the company does produce a variety of devices, 180 Smoke currently carries the Vype ePen 3 and the Vype ePod. Both are available as full starter kits, and replacement pods for each device can also be purchased at 180 Smoke.


How do I use my Vype device?

Both of the devices carried by 180 Smoke were built with simplicity in mind and are perfect for transitioning smokers. Both devices (the ePen 3 and the ePod) are closed pod systems, meaning they cannot be filled with e-juice and work with pre-filled pods.

The ePen 3 does feature a firing button, which is also used to turn the device on and off with 5 clicks. The button must be pressed down for vapor to be created and must only be done while the user is inhaling from the device. Unlike the ePen 3, the ePod utilize draw activation. This means vapor is produced simply by having a user inhale through the mouthpiece.

Regardless of what Vype device you end up choosing, it is important to understand how to use each vape.

ePen 3

Users simply need to insert a pod on the top of the device and press the fire button five times. These five clicks can be used to turn the device on and off, something you should be doing every time the device is not in use. Replacing the pod is incredibly simple as it is press fit and can be removed easily by hand.

The ePod is draw activated, meaning there are no buttons and the device cannot be turned on or off. Instead, vapers simply need to inhale on the device to activate it. A small light on the device will turn on when the ePod is being used and will also indicate the battery life of the device. Replacing the ePod catridiges is just as easy as the ePen 3 and can be done quite simply while on the go.
Vype FAQ - frequently asked questions

Can I refill my Vype device with e-liquid?

The two devices carried by 180 Smoke, the ePod and the ePen 3, are closed pod systems, meaning, they cannot be refilled by users and must be discarded once they are empty.

How do I install a new pod into my Vype device?

Both the ePen 3 and the ePod use press fit pods that can easily be pulled out and pushed back in by hand.

How long do Vype cartridges last?

This depends heavily on how much you use the device and which device you own. The ePen 3 uses a larger 2ml cartridge that should offer 200+ puffs. On the other hand, the ePod comes with a 1.9ml pod.

How do I charge my Vype device?

Both the ePen 3 and ePod can be charged via a USB, however there are some differences on how the devices connect to the USB charger. The ePen 3 is the more convenient of the two and uses a micro USB charging port. On the other hand, the ePod uses a proprietary magnetic charging base that connects to the bottom of the device.

What e-liquid is used in Vype cartridges?

The ePen 3 uses a 50% VG / 50% PG e-liquid and uses varying levels of nicotine salt. The flavours offered for the ePen 3 include Master Blend, Strawberry Smash, Scarlett Kick, Peach Whirl, Indigo Dive, Green Snap, Tropical Mango, Dark Cherry, Crushed Mint, Infused Vanilla, Crisp Mint, Fresh Apple, and Blended Tobacco.

The ePod also uses a 50% VG / 50% PG e-liquid, but instead uses a more traditional freebase nicotine. The flavors offered for the ePod include Berry Blast, Mango Wonder, Polar Mint, Tobacco Marvel, and Vanilla Medley.
