Pros and Cons of Hookah Pens


Pros and Cons of hookah pens


So you’re interested in the pros and cons of hookah pens. I’m going to assume you already know what’s hookah pen and go straight into the pros and cons. There are many different brands of hookah pens. Some of which are better than others (of course), so the pros and cons may vary when using brands other than Everyday Hookah. This post should help some of you that are deciding if a hookah pen is right for your lifestyle.


So lets jump into the pros:


Pros Of Smoking A Hookah Pen


  • Portable – A big pro of a hookah pen is that it is very easy to travel with. A hookah pen is about the size of a ink pen or cigarette. Thanks to the size, you can carry it in your purse, your pocket, and just about anywhere else you could think of.

An example would be:

(*Ring Ring*)

Me: “Hello”

Female Friend: “Hey, what are you doing?”

Me: “Nothing much, just driving and smoking my hookah.”

Female Friend: “Your smoking hookah while driving!? Be careful!”

Me: “Don’t worry, it’s a hookah pen by Everyday Hookah….they’re made for these type of situations.”

Female Friend: “OMG, you’re so awesome.”

*That’s based on a true story* (Not Really)


  • No Tobacco – The biggest pro of a hookah pen is that it does not contain tobacco. If it did contain tobacco, you might as well smoke a cigarette.


Did you know that by eliminating the consumption of tobacco, you are eliminating over 7,000 deadly chemicals. About 70 of those deadly chemicals can cause cancer. (


  • No Nicotine – You know the chemical that gets people addicted to cigarettes, we don’t have any of that. If you have ever tried cigarettes, hookah pen with nicotine, or regular shisha then you most likely have experienced the “hit” in the back of your throat. That “hit” is also a result of nicotine.

  • Disposable (possibly a con) – In today’s world, we don’t have time for a lot of stuff, charging extra electronics being one of them. We prefer to buy it, open it, and use it. Why should hookah pens be any different? If you don’t mind constantly re-charging your hookah pen then this may not be a pro for you.


This lady clearly understands the fast pace nature of today’s society and might have said it best, “Ain’t nobody got time fo dat”.

Aint nobody got time fo dat


  • No Cleaning – Who likes cleaning? With disposable hookah pens, you no longer spend hours cleaning. You spend more hours smoking.


Ready for the con’s?


Con’s Of Smoking A Hookah Pen


  • Less smoke – One of the few cons of smoking a hookah pen is that you get less smoke than you normally would if you were smoking a traditional hookah.


  • Possibly More Expensive – Depending on what brand of shisha you currently use, smoking a hookah pen could be more expensive. For some, it could be less expensive. I recommend comparing Everyday Hookah’s $7.99 price for up to 600 puffs to your current brand of shisha.


if after reading this post and you’re still unsure if hookah pens are right for you, I say give it a try. One of the best ways to know if something is right for you is to actually try it. At the cost of $7.99, it’s not an expensive test. You never know, you might enjoy it.

    Do hookah pens like yours show up on a sports urine drug test?

  2. bdfibn August 31, 2014 at 2:41 pm

    everything causes cancer.

    Even though as you might say there’s no nicotine or tar then why are there risks and slight chances of hookah pens leading to health problems? Having the chemicals overflowing most of the product,don’t many of the pens always contain a slight amount of nicotine such as .5%? (Read lot of news about the hookah pens)

  4. Sadie July 12, 2014 at 10:16 am

    So this hookah pen has no effect on your health? I really want one, but I’m afraid it will damage my lungs.

  5. Everyday Hookah July 1, 2014 at 7:18 pm

    Not only have we thought about it, we’ve put in place features to prevent what you have written about. The liquid is heated, instead of “charged”. While we have never heard of hookah pen liquid being charged, there may be sellers who do so. You should avoid those sellers. Some hookah pens (like ours) now come with automatic cut-off times to prevent the battery from exploding due to over inhaling. Make sure that you purchase from a hookah pen brand that will automatically cut off the battery 4-8 second after continuous inhaling.

  6. tigran July 1, 2014 at 4:54 pm

    BUT apparently the way that the particles of the vapour are charged, there is a chance that it may cause lung failure. and also if you inhale for too long (and this is an obvious risk) then the lithium battery will explode. thought about it much?

  7. @nycmixing June 20, 2014 at 3:20 pm

    They are still pending FDA approval.

  8. @nycmixing June 20, 2014 at 3:17 pm

    The same age to smoke cigarettes.

  9. Anna June 8, 2014 at 10:09 pm

    How old do you have to buy these? I’m 14 and I want some.

  10. Fabulously favored June 8, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    If it is no nicotine…then what is the risk…is the risk the it that the different flavors have some toxic chemical?

  11. Joe June 7, 2014 at 11:15 pm

    Hello. Although there is no nicotine or tobacco in the Hookah Pens can they cause cancer?

  12. Everyday Hookah May 31, 2014 at 11:14 pm

    Hey Chris,

    Some people choose to smoke our hookah pens like a cigarette, others choose to smoke it like traditional hookah. It is completely OK to inhale this vapor like a cigarette.

  13. Chris May 29, 2014 at 8:49 pm

    Do people usually inhale ehookas all the way into the lungs? I know you aren’t supposed to inhale regular hookahs, but are these hookah pens different? Is it ok to inhale the vapor fully like a cigarette?

  14. Everyday Hookah May 19, 2014 at 12:14 pm


    There are no addictive chemicals in our hookah pens. No tar, no shisha, no nicotine, etc…

  15. Mason Ballou May 16, 2014 at 5:55 pm

    Is there any addictive substances in these pens? Like what’s in it? I know there’s no tar, nicotine, and tobacco, but is there shisha in them, or anything that can possibly get you addicted? And if so, are there pens you can buy without it?

  16. Kayla April 30, 2014 at 1:30 pm

    You have to buy the Nicotine separate from the flavors and I’m positive that the flavors don’t include Nicotine. I have one and you always have to use the Nicotine bottle first then you put the flavor In afterwards.

  17. Bren April 28, 2014 at 5:57 pm

    If theres nothing bad in it then how come teens csnt use them im 13 and i want to use one for smoke tricks

  18. Anonymous April 23, 2014 at 10:34 pm

    Hookah pens aren’t e cigarettes.

  19. Rae Rae April 17, 2014 at 8:57 pm

    I meant what if you use it at the age of 13 or younger

  20. Rae Rae April 17, 2014 at 8:55 pm

  21. person April 11, 2014 at 9:38 am

  22. mr.gomez April 8, 2014 at 1:28 am

    Check the CDC and poison control centers calls on e cigarettes. They are not safe.

  23. Everyday Hookah March 12, 2014 at 12:49 pm

    Hey Manek,

    While none of our hookah pens contain nicotine, there are some brands out there that do contain nicotine. Make sure you check with them to ensure that you will be purchasing from a nicotine free brand.

  24. Manek March 12, 2014 at 4:44 am

    I recently purchased a pen hookah, it is quite different from the traditional one, but yea if you love smoking a cigarette then it is way better to purchase a pen hookah as it reduces smoking a cigarette.
    The only problem what I face, there are no good strong flavors available to pull.

    My Query: If we are smoking the pen hookah, are you sure the liquid flavor does not include nicotine, as some times the flavor burns in my throat?

  25. Everyday Hookah March 7, 2014 at 10:11 am

    Hi Susy, our smoke does not come in different colors at the moment, only white.

  26. Susy March 2, 2014 at 12:59 pm

    I would like to know if the smoke comes in colors matching the flavor or is it just plain white?

  27. Darius Burgan February 27, 2014 at 3:17 am

    Hello Sabrina,

    The government classifies all smoking devices, even those without any harmful chemicals, like cigarettes. Due to this, we must treat them as such and not allow any users under the age of 18 in the USA to use them.

  28. Sabrina February 26, 2014 at 9:22 pm

    I was just curious, since there’s no tar, nicotine or tobacco, why aren’t teens allowed to smoke it? There aren’t any health issues.

  29. Everyday Hookah February 18, 2014 at 9:31 am

    Hey, there is no tar or nicotine in any of our hookah pens.

  30. Someone February 18, 2014 at 1:53 am

    I wanna try using a hookah pen but what I’m most afraid of is that it’s bad for my health . So I hope someone can tell me there’s really no tar and nicotine in this brand of hookah pens.

  31. Everyday Hookah February 2, 2014 at 8:13 pm

    We’ve experienced the same problem and it was horrible! If you look on the bright side, you might find a TV remote, some loose coins, and a friendly spider 😉

  32. Phil February 2, 2014 at 7:30 pm

    Con- It will fall into the cracks in a couch

    Be careful!
    Female Friend-“OH NO ahhhhh!”
    Phil-“Ohh nooo noo noo!”
    Female Friend-(swoohing sigh reliefing) (hand swipping of forehead area) “Pfrooooo, that was a close one, it almost fell into the couch!”
    Phil-“Wow that would have been such a heartbreak.” :'(
