The question many people ask vapers (smokers of electronic cigarettes) is that although the health benefits and all pending legislation that is going on by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), and the EU on electronic cigarettes, why should I start vaping?

Vaping is the best way I know and also the safest ways of getting the nicotine fix that all us smokers, or ex-smokers crave for. You may have read or heard somewhere that the FDA do not support the claim that electronic cigarettes can help you quit smoking, I personally and many of my friends and readers have had tremendous success quitting smoking all together and believe, heavily that the electronic cigarette is the only reason we could quit. Although you have probably heard this from a friend who has also quit smoking and started vaping!

So if you’re looking for an electronic cigarette for yourself or a family member, then read our electronic cigarette reviews, you will soon be able to identify the best brand to suit, and see how we rank the top 10 e-cigarettes.

Myself and my team of researchers will also keep you informed of any new legislation being proposed, any debates from the USA, UK, FDA, WHO (World Health Organisation) or European Parliament, and also all the latest news and stories, with our own personal opinions thrown in. You can keep up to date with all this within our blog.

Use Our E Cigarette Reviews To Find The Best

It is becoming more and more difficult to find the best e cigarette starter kit, and it is fair to say that not every type will suit every smoker. For example, take a regular cigarette, not everyone smokes the same brand, and for that not everyone smokes the same type, some smoke roll ups, some smoke cigars, so similarly there are different types of electronic cigarettes to suit different requirements. Let’s look at a few of these types:

Rechargeable Electronic Cigarettes

There are commonly two types of rechargeable electronic cigarette, that is the 3 piece design and the 2 piece, the 3 piece design consists of a battery, a separate atomizer, and a chamber to fill your e-liquid, the main advantage of this is that you can play around with the flavors and change the atomizer resistance measured in ohms. The more advanced e smokers use this 3 piece design and one of the most popular designs is known as the eGo range. The big disadvantage of this type though is that you have to change the atomizer yourself and fill the e-liquid up which although only takes a couple of minutes at worst, is a bit of a drawback. The 2 piece design however is much more appreciated to the new e smoker, as it is simply a case of charging up and off you go! The two piece design consists of a battery and a cartomizer, which is basically a sealed unit consisting of both the atomizer and the cartridge of e liquid. This means the user only has to replace the cartomizer once the e liquid or vapor has run out, on replacement you get a fresh atomizer so the vapor is as thick and fresh as a new one. We have put a list of these starter kits in the table above; each starter kit has its own video so you can see the vapor and the quality of the brand.

Disposable Electronic Cigarettes

Now disposable types are a completely different animal, but work on the same principles as a rechargeable one, they have the same components, i.e. a battery, atomizer and cartridge of e liquid but the unit is completely sealed. This means as soon as either the battery or vapor run out you have to throw it away, just like a traditional cigarette. The main disadvantage of this type is that you are not getting the quality components as you would with the other products; they are meant to be used once and are only built to last a short amount of time. Although the convenience of these disposable products is great, simply unpack and start smoking. In our opinion these type of products are great for those people who want to get an idea of what e smoking is like, but you are not really experiencing the possibilities available to you, and would always recommend the first two options.

Electronic Cigars

This is an interesting type! And although when we first received our first e cigar back in 2003 we were all laughing and thought it was a bit of a gimmick! Now the main difference between the e cigar and the e cigarette is the look, the functionality is exactly the same, but the e liquid flavor is tailored to the cigar smoker. Now in our opinion your far better going with a rechargeable type and choosing a cigar flavoring, but if you have room in your pocket and want to look a little different then possibly go with this option, but bear in mind that you are restricting yourself with flavors and replacement accessories.

Personal Vaporizers

This type is taking e smoking to a new level, and you can spend hundreds of dollars personalizing your e smoking to suit you. As e smoking becomes more and more popular the demand for the perfect smoke is becoming ever more demanding, and hence, as I mentioned before, you cannot expect to have one type or one setup to suit all smokers and this is really the huge benefit of personalized vaporizers. They consist of a variable voltage and wattage battery allowing the user to choose their perfect power level, an atomizer which can either be a sealed unit or allow the user to rap their own gage wire over a wick which can alter the resistance or heat levels and a reservoir or chamber to hold the e liquid. The e liquid can either be bought off the shelf or self mixed to again suit your flavor and thickness of vapor. We would never recommend a new user to choose a personalized vaporizer as their first electronic cigarette, as you can soon become frustrated with the setup and if you don’t know what you’re doing, you might find it tough to produce a vapor that is of any quality.

So now we have considered the different types that are available, we thought we would make your job in choosing your first product a little easier. On our site you will find what we found to be the best quality products available on the market. Take a look at each of the guides, and choose for yourself which is most suited for you!
