Why We Are Experts and Why Trust Our Team


Founded in 2013, License to Vape set out to educate the public and help consumers make informed decisions when it comes to buying products. Hours of testing and research allow us to compare the best products and tell you which ones are worth buying and which ones are not. Our team of experts research 100s of products to help you choose the ones that will fit your needs as well as your budget. To do this we have created reviews, comparisons, and a “best of” lists paired with our unique rating system to ensure you have all the information needed to choose the best vaping products available.

Who We Are

Each member of our staff is an expert in their field of interest. They spend countless hours testing products and writing in-depth reviews on the latest vape mods, tanks, pens, vaporizers, e-liquids, CBD products and accessories. We have writers who are experts in vaping and use many different vape products. Millions of people visit our website to read the reviews of products they are thinking of buying to get the latest expert advice before going shopping.

Need a new mod? No problem, we have reviews on Smok, GeekVape, Tesla and even the cheapest budget mods for new vapors just starting out.

Need a new vape pen? We’ll tell you which one is the best and why.

Our Pledge to Our Readers

Our reviews are based on quality, performance and value. We will never suggest a product or service just because it is popular or trending. We are also not paid for our reviews so you can be sure they are our honest opinions. We review each product and will tell you if it lives up to it’s claims or not. If you have questions or concerns about a certain product, don’t hesitate to ask. Our expert writers are happy to answer questions to help you have a better understanding of how something works or how to use it.

How We Review Vaping Products

Our expert reviews come from a dual process involving extensive research and hands-on experience with a vape product. Experience comes from vape products that we have used recently or, if we need to, we’ll purchase the product or get one loaned to us for the purpose of reviewing it. Our team is committed to evaluating goods and services with the most up-to-date information available. Our rating system will tell you how well an item performs and if it is worth spending the money on.

Types of Content

At License to Vape we don’t stop with just writing a review about a product. We like to review, compare, and rate goods and services according to the way you would when comparing Smok or eLeaf. We like to compare them side by side so you can see their strengths and weaknesses and decide for yourself which one will best serve you.

We are thorough in our efforts at evaluating items because we are consumers also and read reviews (several of them) before making purchases for ourselves.
