Welcome to the best e cigarette guide available on the net for 2014! On our site you will become familar with all the different types of e-cigarette (also known as an electronic cigarette, ecig or electric/vapor cigarette), e-cigars, and e-liquids.
The difference with our guide, is that we explain the pro and cons between all the major e-cig styles and brands, including reviews with videos, so you get to see what they are like, all with expert analysis and in a language that you will understand!
Take a moment and look at the table above; you are only a few clicks away from finding the perfect device for you. Choose a brand and read all about them to find out the benefits and the drawbacks.
All you want to do is find the most perfect e-cig to help you live a life without the need of tobacco, you’re probably interested in the different varieties of e-cigs and e-liquids on the market, well we can help you here. If your struggling to find a device to meet all your needs and don’t want to waste your money buying 10 different types and brands then you need our guide.
Your search online for the best e-cig has unearthed a lot of flashy sites with banners blinking at you and sales pitches that don’t really make that much sense. The vast majority of these types of guides are only based on the basic starter kits available on the market, but do not show videos of the brands in action so you can see for yourself if it’s a device worth considering.
SmokeTastic takes a different approach. On our site you will learn about all the top devices that are currently available, each review has a video showing you how much vapor and how the e cig operates under normal conditions. It is very difficult to judge the best brands, so just because we have ranked a brand at number 1 doesn’t necessarily mean it will suit you perfectly, so our advice is to take a look at a number of our guides and watch the videos to see the style and have a better idea if it is a brand that will suit.
The last thing that we want is to see you buy a cheap brand and turn back to smoking tobacco, we are trying to help smokers learn more about the better products available, without the normal high pressure sales pitches, we believe after reading our reviews you will be in a stronger position to pick the perfect device.
How to Find the Best E Cig for Smokers
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 ecigarette to suit different requirements. Let’s look at a few of these types:
Rechargeable Electronic Cigarettes
There are commonly two types of rechargeable ecigarette, 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.
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.
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!
