The Best Cigalikes

Best Cigalike e cigs

Cigalikes, sometime known as minis are electronic cigarettes that resemble the look of a traditional cigarette and best for complete beginners.

They come in both disposable and rechargeable kits, with everything you need to start vaping, choice of flavors and options are relatively limited with this type. The below list happen to be all rechargeable Cigalikes, due to slightly better performance.

Check Out All The Best Cigalikes.


Best Pod Pens

Best Pod E-Cigs

Vape Pods are electronic cigarettes that have become all the rage in the last few years. Thanks to their simplicity and great performance, taking over the Cigalike type market.

Ideal for smokers who want to switch to vaping with real ease.

Pod vapes do come in a whole host of designs now but they all have a self contained pod which holds both e-liquid and a coil.

Once it’s empty, you just replace the pod.

Most are non refillable, you just choose the flavor and strength when you choose your kit.

You can of course buy replacement pods. The refillable pod versions however, generally do not come with any e-liquid, so you would have to buy that separately.

Best Vape Pens

best vape pen e-cigarettes

Vape pens are the most common e cig used by beginner and intermediate vapers.

They have a small tank to add your own e-liquid along with a rechargeable battery.

All vape pens are sold as starter kits and consist of the main vape pen, recharge cable and a spare coil or atomizer.

Again, as they are refillable, it it up to your to provide your own e-liquid.

Vape Pens can be used similar to smoking with mouth to lung inhales. With this option you should look at atomizers over 1-ohm.

Below 1-ohm atomizers are mean’t for direct lung inhales, which produce much higher amounts of vapor.

Best box mod e-cigarettes

Box mods are being used by vapers moving on from vape pens and want a little more vapor and power.

Often used with sub ohm coils to create thick clouds of vaper.

Box mods are often sold as starter kits which includes a tank and a couple of atomizer coils (you can also buy replacement coils).

These tanks are refillable, so you do need your own e-liquid.

You can pay a lot for mods with certain high-quality chipsets, but here, we list the best-regulated mods for the money.
