Now days most people have heard of electronic cigarettes. But you may be wondering what types there are and which is the best electronic cigarette to get. Electronic cigarettes fall in to 1 of 3 categories; disposable, refillable and voltage variable. This guide will explain each.
At CigElectric we are regularly asked “How do I get started with electronic cigarettes?” and “what electronic cigarette should I get?”. People regularly say “I have no idea what to buy, I am totally confused” and “what is the best electronic cigarette?”.
We tell them electronic cigarettes are very simple and although there are many different product names there are only a few types of devices. You can easily be overwhelmed by all the jargon and product names on the market. The best thing to do is grab an electronic cigarette and get started. It will seem much less daunting once you buy one and see how simple it really easy. When starting It is best to go for an e-cigarette starter kit. It will give you everything you need in one package. You can be sure that all the parts will work together and you can get started as soon as it arrives.
What type of electronic cigarette should you be looking for?
There are 3 categories of e-cigs. Disposable e-cigs that look like a tobacco cigarette. Refillable e-cigs that are larger and can be refilled with e-liquid. And advanced e-cigs with variable voltage and rebuild-able parts.
The Look alike cigarette – Disposable electronic cigarettes
These e-cigarettes are the ones you have probably seen the most. They look just like normal cigarettes with a glowing LED on the end. You usually find them in petrol stations and super markets. They normally cost around 10-15 pounds. Extra cartridges can be purchased for them that normally cost around 5-7 pounds.
This type of device is not a bad starting point to get the feel of an electronic cigarette. You just open them up and suck on them like a normally cigarette. Some can be recharged and when they run out you can replace the cartridge on the end.
The issue with these kind of devices is the battery life is very short and runs out quickly. The performance and vapour production is generally poor and short lasting. The cartridges need to be replaced regularly and can be quite expensive. These problems quickly add up and most people move on to a refillable e-cig quite quickly. The only advantage is their small size. if you really want a look alike cigarette and think this is the one for you they can be bought readily at the large supermarket chains and petrol stations.
The refillable electronic cigarette
The best electronic cigarette for an average user is a refillable electronic cigarette. These devices allow you to refill easily with inexpensive e-liquid. They provide long battery life and perform great. E-liquid can be bought much cheaper than disposable cartridges. There are also thousands of different flavours you can try.
A refillable starter kit will give you two electronic cigarettes instead of one. When one is charging you have another available. The batteries last much longer between charging and the electronic cigarette works much better. It provides a lot more vapour, better flavour and needs replacement far less often.
This is the kit I would recommend to any beginner: the CigElectric GO electronic cigarette starter kit. The initial cost of the kit is slightly higher at around £35. Although within a month it will already be working out far cheaper than a disposable set up because the refills are so much cheaper.
The Variable Voltage – Advanced Electronic Cigarette
These devices are advanced models aimed at current users looking to get maximum performance from their device. You can change the power of the e-cigarette which creates vapour. They also have other features. You can measure the resistance of your device and use large batteries to support the increased power consumption.
These devices are generally not for a first time user as normally it is advised to start with a basic kit before making the investment to upgrade to a variable voltage device. When you do we recommend the CigElectric VV Starter Kit or iTaste MVP, two amazing devices that are stylish, packed full of features and very easy to use. They comes bundled with everything you need to get started and can be used alongside your regular electronic cigarette batteries.
