Collection of vaping devices and parts on a dark background

Every year we see new vapes enter the market, old vapes receive upgrades, and certain devices spike in popularity. As vaping becomes an increasingly popular alternative to traditional cigarettes, more innovations hit the shelves of vape shops in NZ.

Whether your current vape has lived its full life or you’re vaping for the first time, this blog post will help you find a device. We look at the most popular vapes with this quick breakdown of the best vapes of 2022.

Uwell—Caliburn KOKO A2

Released in late 2021, the Caliburn KOKO A2 took 2022 by storm. The sleek design with a range of bold colours made this pod device one good-looking vape. Of course, you can count on the KOKO A2 to deliver the classic, smooth Caliburn flavour through the all-in-one refillable pods. If you want an easy-to-use, buttonless, and refillable pod device, look no further than the Caliburn KOKO A2. It’s no wonder this device was a top seller in 2022.


SMOK never puts out a bad product. You can count on all the things you love from a SMOK vape with the RPM 5 Pro. The biggest change with this device is the built-in 2000mAh battery providing this powerful pod system with the juice it needs. Pod and mods come together with this kit, and a large e-liquid tank will keep you satisfied all day! The sub-ohm coils always provide full, satisfying clouds.

Vozol—Alien 5000

With more brands designing disposable devices, we have seen this type of device grow in popularity. The Alien 5000 was one of our top sellers in 2022. Vozol has a mouth-watering flavour range, with each vape holding approximately 5000 delicious puffs. Adding a charger port makes the Alien 5000 last longer than most disposables so that you can enjoy the taste of Blue Razz, Tropical Punch, and more for longer. If you’re after a single-use vape, don’t ignore the Alien! 

GeekVape—Aegis Boost Pro

Aegis Boost Pro was one of the best options for sub-ohm vaping in 2022. The 100W of available power provides intense clouds and rich flavour. The Boost Pro sees a complete upgrade with a new system UI and redesigned airflow for smoother vaping. The sleek, modern take on a pod mod makes this a popular choice for cloud chasers, as the 6mL pod design will keep the clouds coming all day long. 

Vaporesso—XROS 2 Pod Kit

Vaporesso is a staple vape brand that has nailed the design with the XROS 2. A classic pod-style vape, the XROS 2 is slim, comfortable to hold, and doesn’t skimp on performance. Improved leak resistance, a better MTL experience, and dual activation make this ideal for those who need a simple, everyday device. No wonder it was so popular in 2022. The Vaporesso XROS skips all the bells and whistles but delivers a simple, quality vaping experience.
