Finding Your Perfect Vape Band

When you invest in a vape mod, protecting it should be your first priority. Glass tanks are easily shattered if you drop your vape or knock it off your desk. A vape band supreme or mastermind vape band will help to protect your mod and give it a stylish look that can set it apart from the crowd.

Are all vape tank bands the same size?

Most vape bands are made of silicone, meaning they can stretch. Many of the vape bands you see will fit a variety of vapes and also work well as an e-cig tank protector. The thickness of the band may vary somewhat. Many manufacturers of vape brands don't even list the diameter of the bands. If you are seeking a certain size, the most common sizes are 18 millimetre, 21 millimetre, and 22 millimetre. Due to the nature of silicone, a 22-millimetre vape band may not stay snug on an 18-millimetre vape pen. However, an 18-millimetre band should be able to stretch to accommodate a 22-millimetre mod.

Which brands sell vape bands?

Vape bands are an optional accessory and are not normally sold in a vaping kit. Many different brands now manufacture vaping bands as vaping has become increasingly more common. Brands you will see include:

  • KangarTec
  • SMOK
  • Other manufacturers that create personalised vape bands
Types of affordable vape bands

There are two basic types of vape bands. The basic vape band is simply a stretchy silicone ring with a design or writing on it. It pulls over your vape and protects the glass tank. If you have a large tank, you may want to use two bands. They are often used as protection for the tanks although they are seen by some vapers as a fashion accessory. The other type is a vape band with a dust cap attachment. This band includes a small cap at the end of a connecting piece. You place the cap over your vape when not in use to protect it from dust and debris. These often come in plain colours, but you can also find them with various designs.

What types of designs are on new or pre-owned vape tank bands?

From plain colours to your own personalised message or logo, a vape band can really be anything you want it to be. The most common designs you will see on eBay include:

  • Solid-coloured, including glow in the dark
  • Multi-coloured
  • Designs such as skulls, crowns, musical notes, and stars
