Most electronic cigarette models work the same way. They have a battery powered atomizer that vaporizes the nicotine/water solution which you inhale. The main differences are in the overall volume of smoke, quality of the device itself, cost of refill cartridges, available flavors, and a few other additional features that may appeal to you depending on your personality and lifestyle.
E-cigarette brands have different personalities. Most are made to look like a traditional cigarette. The cartridge is designed like a filter, the battery resides inside the main sleek body of a cigarette, and the tip will glow with the red light when the cigarette is inhaled.
Some manufacturers are aware that e-cig is basically a gadget, and they are making it in a variety of colors and designs. Our favorite are Vapor Couture, who offer a wide selection of funky skins for their e-cigarette.
If you look at the E-Cigarette Brands page, you will see there are already quite a few brands in this young industry. It might take some research to find the one that suits you best.
2 or 3 Piece e-Cigarette
A 2 piece electronic cigarette is made up of the battery part and a cartridge. The atomizer is contained within the cartridge. The advantages of this are several: each cartridge comes with a fresh and clean atomizer built in. You don’t need to worry about cleanliness or atomizer waring off over time, and last but not least – you never have to buy a new atomizer.
A 3 piece e-cigarette consists of the battery piece, an atomizer and a cartridge. In this case, atomizer is of better quality and comes with warranty. Refill cartridges are up to 50% cheaper. Considering that a new atomizer costs about $10, you could get a new atomizer with every 10 cartridges and still save money.
For real smokers, this factor is the single most important one. How much vapor you’ll able to get with one inhale? Obviously, more volume will bring a more satisfactory smoking experience.
If this is what you are after, we recommend GreenSmoke electronic cigarette. They are the top selling brand precisely because they provide a high quality product with the highest amount of vapor.
You can buy smoke juice and refill cartridges to save money with a 3 piece electronic cigarette. You wouldn’t be able to do this with a 2 piece electronic cigarette as its atomizer is not built to last.
All e-cig brands have tobacco and menthol flavored cartridges. If you are into a very specific flavor then look at the brands that offer a wide variety of flavors. Most will give you a complimentary flavors variety pack in the strength of your choice so you can sample them.
Blue, Red or Green LED
Electronic cigarettes are still new, and they attract attention from smokers and non-smokers. When you smoke in public an e-cig with a red LED, it will appear as if you are smoking a traditional cigarette while you inhale.
An e-cigarette with a blue or green LED may invite more attention, but will get you less trouble from onlooking anti-smokers.
When it comes to money, the price tags for electronic cigarette starter kits range from about $60 to over $200. But the starter kit only determines your initial cost. After a while you will have to buy refill cartridges. When you look at the cost per cartridge, don’t forget to consider how long a cartridge lasts. Different brands compare their cartridges to the number of traditional cigarettes or packs.
Money Back Guarantee
If you are unsure about your switch to electronic cigarettes and you don’t want to commit, then an electronic cigarette from a brand that offers a money back guarantee is a wise choice.
