Should You Buy an E-Cigarette with Cartridge or Pod That’s Refillable with Your Preferred E-Liquid, or One That is Non-Refillable? 

There are now many styles of ecigs that have either refillable or disposable cartridges. There are even different style cartridges that hold your e-liquids. 

This overview describes the differences between refillable and non-refillable (replaceable) Vape Pen Style E-Cigarettes. We'll also recommend some of the most reliable.

What are Vape Pen E-Cigarettes?

Vape Pens are called “pens” because, they are all lightweight, portable, and they come in different shapes and colors.

Some look more like traditional cigarettes and are called “cigalikes”.

Others are flat-shaped or are cigar-shaped. We’ll show you some examples.

All of them use e-liquids and have a battery.

Advantages of Pre-Filled Vape Pens


There are Vape Pen cartridges and pods that are pre-filled with e-liquid. You purchase your cartridge or pod directly from the company that makes the pen.

You never have to fill the pod with e-juice. When it’s empty, you throw it away and replace it with a new one that's pre-filled with eliquid.

  • Pre-filled Vape Pens are very easy to use.
  • They are lightweight.
  • They are more portable than larger vaporizers and box mods.
  • Vape Pens can be very “stealth-like”, meaning they aren’t bulky or ostentatious.
  • There’s no need to keep bottles of e-liquid at home.
  • Replacing the cartridge or pod is easy and there’s no chance of spilling any e-liquid.

Advantages of Filling Your Vape Pen Cartridge or Pod with E-Liquid


  • You can choose any e-liquid brand or flavor you like.
  • Choosing your own e-liquid can give you control over your nicotine level.
  • Refillable cartridges can be more economical than buying pre-filled ones.


Here Are Our Top Picks for a Vape Pen That Comes with Pre-Filled Cartridges

Vaporfi Express Kit -



VAPORFI is one of the first vape companies. It is also one of the most trusted. Vaporfi is also the place vapers go for the best cigalikes.

Easy to use, you get everything in the kit to start vaping. The kit includes:

  • 2 x Express Battery
  • 1 x Wall Charging Adapter
  • 1 x USB Charger
  • 1 x User Manual
  • 1 x Membership Card


You simply charge the battery, screw on the cartridge and vape. There are 2 flavors – Classic Tobacco and Mighty Menthol.

Here is a Top Selling Vape Pen with Refillable Cartridges 



Vaporfi Express kit five parts


The VaporFi Express slim-styled vape pen comes with 3 refillable mini tanks and a free bottle of e-liquid. This slim Bundle Kit comes with the following:

1 Standard Express Battery
1 High-Capacity Express Battery
1 Wall Charging Adapter
1 USB Charger
3 Mini-Clear Clearomizer Tanks
1 30ml Bottle of Your Custom Blend
1 VaporFi Membership Card
1 User Manual

The Express battery has full, long l-If you prefer a refillable cartridge, they have one that will fit the Express battery.

Just charge the battery and fill the mini tank (or cartridge) with ejuice.

The tanks and cartridges can be refilled about 7 times before you have to replace it.

Express mini-tanks and refillable cartridges are sold in economical packs of 5.

I recommend using VaporFi e-liquid with this vape pen, not only because they have so many mixable flavors, the bottles have a very thin dropper tip, so there’s little chance you’ll spill your vape juice.


Here is Our Favorite Re-fillable Vape Pod Pen


This style of Pod vape has what is known as an “open system”. Like the pre-filled vape pod pens, these models are ultra-portable, and lightweight.

#4 SMOK Nord

SMOK Nord in 7 colors

The SMOK Nord is now of the most popular refillable vape pod devices. It is ultra-portable, lightweight, and takes a nice amount of e-liquid – 3mL.

The Nord comes with two atomizers – one great for nicotine salts and one for full flavored sub-ohm/direct lung vaping.

The Nord can even take thicker e-liquids (like high VG blends) as well as oil concentrates (like CBD oil).

There are several Smoke Nord Kits available, including their latest high performance NordC kit.


In Conclusion:

Whatever you choose, we at CloudNineEcigReviews think choosing e-cigarettes over tobacco cigarettes is a smart move.  

You don’t need a complicated, nor an expensive device to enjoy vaping.

Buy the best brands, (not the cheapest); follow product directions, and you’ll find that the e-cigarette alternative is like finding a new friend who is just as satisfying as a tobacco cigarette, but thankfully, far less destructive.

    I like the old storm vape e cigs with refillable filter. I can’t find them anymore. These look like a reg cig & smoke really well. They are white with lines going around them. can you help.

    1. Hi Faith,

      Storm no longer makes your model, but a great ecig with a refillable filter is the Vaporfi Express with refillable filter

    I smoke ultra light 100s cigs. I got an ecig to try so can quit but no matter how I puff it I end up choking cause to me its harsh like a pipe. Can anyone tell me of an ecig that isn’t harsh and cause choking?

    1. Hi Cheryl,
      I’ve heard so many stories from people who have experienced the same problem. Usually it’s because they pick up an ecig kit from the drug store. A helpful article is on Best ECigarette Guide, but I always recommend trying either V2Cigs for a traditional starter ecig, or Halo if you want to try a good starter vaporizer.

    Hi i bought a new refill for my e cigarette and cant seen to get it to work. there is no vapour coming out of it when i take a pull from it

    1. Hi Jacinta,
      Just call the customer support number at the ecig company and they will send you a replacement. It should be easy to get the number online, but if you let me know the brand you are using I can find the number for you.
