What You Can Expect in Vaping Technology for 2021
Although vaping seems to be threatened with new regulations every day, the industry continues to push the boundaries of what is possible in terms of technology. For almost four years now, a new and exciting piece of vaping technology appears that becomes a must-try for serious vapers. As the year comes to an end, we wanted to round up some of the most exciting advances of the last couple of years and predict what will happen in 2021 in the world of new vape technology.

Although certainly not new (JUUL, for example, created in 2019 the JUUL C1 that allows users to connect to their android devices via BlueTooth) BlueTooth connected vape devices will be more common in 2021.
While you might be wondering how a Bluetooth vape device can be advantageous, the truth is that it has many features that take vaping to the next level. With a BlueTooth connected vape, you can keep track of your vape if you ever lose it, manage the amount of e-liquid you use, and even lock the device so no one can use it.
Usually, a Bluetooth connected device works in unison with an app that you download on your phone. Through the app, the user can track how many hits they take, where the vape is located, and how to lock it. Some vape devices might also come with temperature control, voltage control, and wattage control.
The real benefit of a Bluetooth connected vape is for vapers trying to quit nicotine. With a BlueTooth connected vape, they can keep track of how many hits they take throughout the day and slowly lower the number of hits (nicotine) per day.
It’s no secret that the vape industry needs better batteries, which is why there will most likely be battery improvement in 2021. The trend has been to add more size to the batteries to increase power and allow for higher wattage output.
Right now, the most powerful batteries in vaping are the 21700s. 21700s are very powerful and are used in the electric vehicle market. However, the problem with battery technology, not just on vaping, but with batteries in general, moves at a snail’s pace. While there might not be significant advancements, there will probably be improvements to the current models.
Better Pod Systems
While box mods might be popular with veteran vapers, the most popular vape devices worldwide are pod systems. What can be expected is the improvements of these vape devices.
Light as a feather and compact, these devices are excellent for new vapers who don’t want to carry around a large device. They also use nicotine salts, a new and improved form of nicotine that replicates smoking more closely or, in other words, is absorbed quicker by your body.
Right now, pod systems are super convenient because they can easily be charged via USB cable, use pods or cartridges that come prefilled with e-liquid, so there’s no need for you to fill it manually. They are draw-activated and use no buttons.
But improvements to pod systems in 2021 could be happening, especially for vapers who want a more customized experience. For example, the market could be seeing pod systems with LED screens that allow the user to control the temperature of the vape and know the battery life.
Although certainly not new (check out the iJoy Avenger 270 and the SMOK I-Priv), voice-activated vapes could see a resurgence in 2021. With voice-activated vapes, you can issue several commands to the devices, which they then complete. Commands like “turn off” will turn off the device, or commands like “higher power” will increase the temperature.
Although in truth, the technology seems to be more of a gimmick at the moment, it could become useful in the future, for example, to lock and unlock the device (by recognizing your voice) so minors or children could not use it.
Although chip technology largely depends upon the brand you’re getting it from, in 2021, expect more of what the market has been seeing, which means more automation. For example, just in 2019 alone, Vaporesso released the Axion chip with “pulse” settings that automatically adjusted temperature with each puff to save battery life. These and more safety features are what’s expected of the new chipsets in 2021.
If the pod system trend keeps going the way, there is no doubt that in 2021 the market will continue to see smaller devices. Thanks to the JUUL pod systems' popularity, slim, easy to carry devices allowing for discreet vaping will continue appearing in the market.
Not only will these devices be smaller but more cost-effective as brands battle to win over customers, there is no doubt that these entry-level models' prices will also go down.
While there is no way to predict with any certainty what will or will not happen in the world of vaping, the current technology is certainly setting trends that will probably continue throughout 2021.
To recap, Bluetooth connectivity that started in 2019 might again be taken more seriously, especially by vapers who want to quit nicotine and need a system that tells them how many puffs they have taken in a single day. Battery life will improve, but batteries themselves might become more prominent. Pod systems with more features like temperature control and LED screens might see the light of day. Chipset technology will continue its road to automation, while entry-level vaping devices will become more cost-effective and smaller.
At least, that’s what we think will happen in 2021. We’ll have to see how vaping regulation is fairing six months into the year and if new vape technology looks anything like what we mentioned above.
