E Cigarette Trends of 2019 | What's New

What's been happening in the world of vaping in 2019?

E-cigarettes have been getting more and more popular as people start to move away from smoking. We’ve been in the business since 2014, and during that time we have seen lots of different trends. 

We saw the rise of the mod and the development of the cleito tank. Then there have been new devices, DIY e-liquids, cloud chasing and everything in between. In this blog, we are going to look at e cigarette trends of 2019 to see what is new. 

E Cigarettes Nic Salts

Nic salts are designed for those looking to enjoy high nicotine consumption. If you are looking to curb cravings for longer, or get a higher dose of nicotine, then salts are for you. The salts are blended with the e-liquid and absorbed into the bloodstream better than the standard nicotine e-liquid. 

Nic salts are the same form of nicotine that you find in tobacco. However, this doesn’t mean they are harmful, nicotine carries fewer toxins than tobacco. Remember, it is the tobacco that contains the cancer-causing chemicals.

Squonk Mod Kits

Squonk mod kits are a drippers dream. It is a device with a built-in squeezy bottle at the bottom that feeds into the RDA. You squeeze the bottle to feed the e-liquid onto the atomizer or squonk ready RDA. 

Those who drip through the mouthpiece will enjoy using a squonk mod. It is less messy and easier to squonk on the go than it is to drip. It also means that you don’t need to carry bottles of juice around with you, saving you space in your pockets. 

It is a more advanced bit of kit for those who know about oHms law and resistance, but it is simple. 

Pod style vape kits

Pods are like the vamped up starter kits from the past. They are very simple to use. However, you can change coils and even use high PG e-liquids with some of them such as the Lost Vape Orion DNA.

Pod style e-cigarettes have been the ideal starter kit or second device, for someone wanting a small and discreet vape. They fit easily in your pocket or purse and produce a satisfying vape.

CBD electronic cigarette liquid

CBD is one of the fastest-growing industries. More people are seeing the benefits of using the cannabinoid to help with various ailments and conditions. These include anxiety, fibromyalgia, psoriasis, epilepsy, menopause and period pains, symptoms, pain, inflammation and more. 

Vaping CBD is the most bioavailable way to enjoy the cannabinoid, meaning it gets into your system the fastest. The best devices for CBD electronic cigarette liquid are more basic kits, such as pods. This is because CBD e-liquid is high PG and thin, so is likely to leak out of a big tank. 

Vaping Danger Scares

Unfortunately, another e cigarette trend of 2019 is vaping danger scares. These scares include popcorn lung and mysterious lung disease.

We have spoken about and debunked the popcorn lung myth many times on our blogs and videos.

Watch our video below to learn more. 


In terms of mysterious lung disease, this has come from people vaping THC cartridges. THC is the psychoactive part of the cannabis plant and is illegally sold.

Currently, it is being sold in cartridges for people to vape. However, when you illegally buy something like this you cannot be 100% sure what is in it and if anything has been added. It is best avoided!

Trends of 2020

We're looking forward to the vaping trends of 2020. Will we experience more advanced kits accessible to those looking for something easy to use? Or new flavors? Or maybe a rise in DIY e cigarette juice. 

Bring on 2020.
