One of the best ways to help you stop smoking for good is to move from regular cigarettes to e-cigs. Understandably, since this is a new device, not everyone knows what to look for when buying e-cigs. There are hundreds of brands to choose from each offering their own lines of accessories. This simple guide will help new e-cigarette enthusiasts get the best products and enjoy their experience better.
When buying an e-cigarette one of the important things to look into is the design. E-cigarettes come in different sizes and function, so you get one that will give you the ultimate vaping experience. There are at least three most main e-cigarette sizes, which includes Mini/Cig-A-like, Mid-Size Models, and APVs or Mods.
- Mini/Cig-A-Like – are most preferred and widely used e-cigs by those who have just started vaping. Some of the designs are similar to a real cigarette. Minis are compact and lightweight so it’s the best option for those who are always on the go.
- Mid-Size – Some brands carry the mid-size models which are slightly larger than the minis, about the size of a regular cigar. Mid-size models are preferred by e-cig enthusiasts who want to product more vapor.
- APVs and Mods – APV stands for Advance Personal Vaporizers, also widely called “Mods” by enthusiasts. They offer the ultimate vaping experience and designed for those dedicated e-cigs enthusiasts. These devices last longest and allow the strongest vapor production.
Portability Vs. Performance
When it comes to e-cigarettes, you will want to choose between portability vs. performance. Minis are small and easy to use but it may give you a limited performance. Minis are perfect for occasional smokers, but moderate to heavy vaping enthusiasts may not be fully satisfied with this product. Moderate to heavy smokers may consider using a mid-size or mods. These provide the best vaping experience but may also require some space or a whole personal e-cigarette “kit”.
In addition to vapor production, you also need to considered things like throat hit and battery life. These factors are important especially for heavy smokers.
Another important thing that you should take into consideration is the supplier quality. Some suppliers provide a 30 day money back guarantee; some also offer a limited lifetime guarantee. Take note if the supplier also provides additional products like replacement parts, e-liquids, e-liquid flavors and many more. Since there are hundreds of brands out in the market, take time to review each brand and what they have to offer.
Long Term Cost
Prices for e-cigs will vary; starter kits are a little more expensive since it includes all the components like charger and batteries. Like any other product high quality can be more expensive. There are dozens of cheap e-cigarettes out there, but has no proven quality, so choose wisely. In comparison to traditional cigarettes, using e-cigs can reduce your long term cost substantially.
Buying the right e-cigarettes is just like buying any other product. You want to get the best quality and performance out of your purchase. The factors mentioned are helpful especially for those who are just starting with e-cigarette use.
