  • Vista Vapors Review

    April 6, 2017
    Happy Tongue Review - Vista Vapors E-Juice Review
    Vista Vapors has something for everyone. From the smoker looking for a basic tobacco or menthol e-juice to the dedicated cloud-chaser looking for a multi-tonal, high-VG blend, there is something ideal for you in the line-up, whoever you are. Their more basic blends come in 17 ml bottles for just $4.99, with flavors including Mangoes n Cream, Vanilla, Cappuccino, Tobacco Red, Peanut Butter and many many more. But if you want something more ambitious, Vista has a massive 42 lines of premium juices (priced at $14.99 / 30 ml), each one like a little boutique mixer on it’s own. But with so much choice, how can you know where to start? Are they worth picking up at all? We’ve tasted the juices for our Vista Vapors review to find out.
  • Cloudride C9 Collection Vape Juice Review

    March 22, 2017
    Cloudride is a juice company that aims for the very best in flavor, quality and safety. Every e-juice is crafted by a James Beard award-winning chef, ensuring that each flavor is beautifully balanced, comes through clearly and fits perfectly alongside the other taste elements. The upshot is that Cloudride puts out premium e-juices that actually deserve the title. Although there are some excellent options in their Classic Collection, the six flavors in the C9 Collection take it to the next level. With unique ingredients like ylang ylang and taro root, clever combinations like Virginia tobacco, butterscotch and cantaloupe and high-VG mixes all-round, the C9 Collection is a tempting selection for vapers. But are the flavors really worth $20 per 30 ml? We’ve taken a look in our Cloudride C9 Collection vape juice review to find out.
  • Limitless LMC 200W Box Mod Review

    March 22, 2017
    Limitless LMC 200W Box Mod
    Limitless made a name for itself with the well-received Sleeve mod, but their new 200 W LMC box mod promises to blow it out of the water. Packing a hard-to-beat maximum power setting, TC with nickel, titanium and stainless steel, three fire modes and interchangeable panels, it combines a wealth of features with a rugged, customizable look. But the device isn’t cheap, at about $80 for the mod depending on where you pick it up. With so many dual 18650 box mods on the market with similar features, standing out isn’t easy for a device like the LMC 200W. So does it do enough to be worth picking up? Will you use it every day, or wish you never bought it? Our Limitless 200W box mod review takes a look to find out.
  • JUUL Vapor Review

    March 20, 2017
    JUUL PAX
    The JUUL isn’t your average e-cigarette. Looking more like a USB stick than a cigarette and using nicotine salts in place of the standard free-base variety found in e-liquids (and NRT), Pax’s JUUL breaks the mold in a pretty appealing fashion. With juice-containing pods you simply push into place, a sleek design, fast charging, and substantial vapor production (at least for an entry-level device), it’s well-worth consideration for just-switching smokers or vapers looking for a unique and discreet device. But is the JUUL as good as it seems? Priced at $49.99 – and with expensive replacement pods – it’s quite the investment when there are so many capable and affordable e-cigs on the market. So is it worth the purchase? Our JUUL review finds out.
  • VaporFi Atom Review

    February 27, 2017
    Vaping isn’t all about e-liquid. Portable dry herb vaporizers are becoming more and more popular, and VaporFi has been on board with the trend for a little while now. After the Orbit and Stratus, which were well-received but not game-changers, the Atom aims to really put VaporFi on the map when it comes to dry herb vaping. With a 3,000 mAh battery, three temperature settings, a sleek design and a tempting price of $139.99, it looks like a solid option for anybody looking for a dry herb vape. But with devices like the Pax 3 and the V2 Pro Series 7 to contend with, can it really make a mark in the industry? Is it worth the money? We’ve put the device to the test in our VaporFi Atom review to find out.
  • Vapor2 Trinity Review

    February 27, 2017
    Vapor 2 Trinity Review
    V2 Cigs has been a feature in the vaping industry since the early days, and the Vapor2 Trinity sees them taking a bold leap into the world of box mods. With variable wattage and temperature control vaping as standard, and in-built 1,200 mAh battery and a compact, stylish design, it’s a pretty appealing offering. Although cloud-chasers may balk at the 40 W maximum power output, for vapers more interested in being satisfied than being a fog machine, the mod definitely has a lot going for it. However, the $69.95 price tag might give newer vapers pause. Is it really the best thing to pick up? Our Vapor2 Trinity review is here to help you make your choice.
  • Vype Pebble Review

    February 7, 2017
    BAT Vype Pebble Review
    The Vype Pebble is an e-cigarette device firmly targeted at just-switching smokers, and it’s made by British American Tobacco. It’s a bit like a cigalike, with pre-filled, disposable cartridges filled with e-juice and “automatic” operation so it works when you inhale from the tip, but it looks nothing like a cigarette. At £17.99 / $22.25 for the starter kit, it isn’t an expensive device to try out, but is it worth it? With BAT’s financial might behind it, it’s no surprise that the Pebble is well-designed and professionally-produced, but does this translate to a great vape? We’ve put the device through it’s paces for our Vype Pebble review to find out.
  • VaporFi VAIO 75W Review

    January 27, 2017
    All-in-one vape mods are among the best choices for new vapers looking for the best performance with maximum simplicity. By incorporating the tank into the body of the device, they give you everything you need to get started with vaping apart from a bottle of e-juice. The Vaio 75 W TC is VaporFi’s first entry into this field, boasting an internal 3.5 ml tank, sub ohm coils, up to 75 W of power and a well-equipped TC feature. But the price of $129.99 gives many vapers pause. Is it really worth the price tag? Can it compete with all-in-one mods like Joyetech’s eGrip 2? Our VaporFi Vaio 75 W TC review takes a look to find out.
  • V2 Pro Series 3 Review

    January 19, 2017
    v2-pro-3
    V2 Cigs has been in the e-cigarette industry for a long time, after having built their reputation by putting out one of the best cigalike devices on the market, but they’ve kept pace with the trends in the industry. The Pro Series sees them stepping into new territory, putting out the eGo-style Series 3 alongside the bigger, mod-like Series 7. Both of these devices have the same core selling-point: you can use them with loose leaf and waxes alongside standard e-liquid, which works thanks to their unique magnetic changeable cartridge system. For the Series 3, this means you have a slim, portable device with a 650 mAh battery that can support anything you want to vape, as well as keeping the operation as simple and intuitive as possible. But does the performance live up the hype? Is it worth the $59.99 price tag? Our V2 Cigs Pro Series 3 review takes an in-depth look at the device to find out.
  • V2 Vertx Plus Review

    January 16, 2017
    V2 has been a big name in the vaping industry since it was first picking up steam. Known for some of the best cigalikes money could buy, they changed things a little with the release of the Pro Series 3 and 7, a vape pen and a mod-like device. The Vertx sees them taking another look at the cigalike. It takes the simplicity of the most basic vaping devices and combines them with some of the best features you find in complex, higher-end models. The result is an e-cigarette that has a lot of potential for just-switching smokers looking for something as simple as a cigalike that performs more like an advanced vape pen or mod. But does it deliver? Is the Vertx Plus worth $89.95? We’ve put it to the test in our Vertx Plus review.

Guide to Choosing the Best E-Cig

 

If you’re new to vaping, the multitude of options on the market can be a little overwhelming. Do I want an electronic cigarette that looks like a cigarette? Do I need a higher-powered e-cig, or will something smaller and less hard-hitting be enough? What should I look for when I’m buying an e-cigarette? How much does it cost to vape in comparison to smoking? What’s the best e-cigarette brand?

 

That’s a lot of questions, and that really just scratches the surface. You might also wonder about the potential risks of vaping in comparison to smoking, what the ingredients of e-juice are, how you should set up your e-cig and more.

 

Although there’s a lot to cover (and we have addressed many on our blog), here’s a brief guide to everything you may want to know if you’re just getting started with vaping.

 

What is Vaping?

 

The most basic question you may have is simply: what is vaping anyway? What are electronic cigarettes?

 

An e-cigarette is a device used to turn a liquid that usually contains nicotine into a vapor, which you inhale in the same way you would with cigarette smoke. The difference is that e-cigarettes don’t contain tobacco and they don’t involve combustion (so nothing is burned). A battery supplies power to a small coil, which heats it up and causes the “e-liquid” to turn into a mist of tiny droplets, and this is what you inhale. The word “vaping” is the equivalent of smoking, but for this vapor instead of smoke.

 

Buying Your First E-Cigarette

 

Even with all of this information, buying your first e-cigarette can still be a daunting experience. How do you find the best electronic cigarette brand for your needs? Where should you go to make the purchase?

 

First off, finding the best e-cig isn’t particularly easy. The problem isn’t that it’s hard to find a high-quality device; it’s more that your personal preferences have a big role to play in the best choice for you. Here are a few things to consider when you’re looking for the best-rated e-cig brand on the market:

 

  • Ease of use: The biggest factor you should consider is how simple you want your experience to be. In general, the more complicated the device, the better it will perform, but new users understandably want something easy to use. The best advice is to either choose an eGo-style e-cig, or an “all-in one” option, like the Aspire Plato, the Joyetech eGo AIO or the Joyetech eGrip II. If you don’t mind something more complicated, you could start with a VV/VW mod, but if you want something as simple as possible, cigalikes are the easiest to use, despite being less satisfying.
  • The battery: One of the most important things to consider when you’re buying a device is the lifespan of the battery. If the battery doesn’t last long, you’ll have to charge a lot more and may end up draining it while you’re out at work. The lifespan of the battery is shown through it’s milliamp-hour (mAh) rating – higher numbers are better.
  • Portability: Higher-capacity batteries are good, but they’re generally less easily portable. So if portability is important, you’ll probably be better off getting two smaller batteries (around 650 mAh) so you have one to use while the other charges. Box mods are also quite portable, and have much longer battery life.
  • Power/voltage settings: Many modern e-cigarettes give you a choice for voltage or wattage, and devices like this generally offer better performance. They’re more complicated, but if you want a more satisfying vape, it’s well worth it.
  • Build quality: This is hard to judge without physically inspecting the device, but check out e-cig reviews to get an idea of how well each device is put together.
  • Extra features: There is a lot more to consider, but the most important is what extra features you get. Ensure the e-cig you choose has some safety features, for example, the ability to lock or be turned off, low voltage protection and short circuit protection. Other features like temperature control (only found on mods) are nice extras but not essential.

 

There is a lot to consider when you’re looking for the top e-cigarette brand, but thinking about these few things and how they match up to your preferences should point you in the right direction. And check out plenty of e-cigarette reviews on the devices you’re considering to see if there are any issues you may have missed.

 

But where should you shop? There are tons of great online vape stores, but we’d personally recommend DirectVapor: they offer free shipping, great prices and a huge range of e-cigs, tanks, e-liquids and more.

 

How Much Does Vaping Cost?

 

In general, vaping is much cheaper than smoking. How much cheaper it is can vary, but we did a detailed cost comparison for each of the three main types of electronic cigarette, and found that vaping will save you between $1,000 and $2,000 per year in comparison to smoking. Depending on what you choose and how much you vape, you could save even more than that.

 

How to Set Up Your Electronic Cigarette

 

So you’ve picked up an electronic cigarette starter kit and you’re ready to start vaping. The big question is “what the hell do I do?!” Thankfully, regardless of the type of ecig device you’ve gone for, the process of getting set up is quite straightforward.

 

Cigalike devices are the easiest: all you have to do is screw a cartomizer onto the battery and then start vaping. You should really charge the battery before you start – just screw the battery into the USB charger you get with the e-cig and wait until it’s done – but it’s not absolutely necessary.

 

For eGo-style electronic cigarettes and vape mods, the process is a bit more complicated because you have to deal with coils and e-juice. In most cases, your device will come with a coil already installed. But if there isn’t one screwed in, this is quite easy to do. Simply open up the tank (most just unscrew from the bottom) and look for the empty space where the coil goes. This is usually on the bottom section of the tank, and you should be able to see the threading and contact point. Just screw a new coil in there and it’s done.

 

Then you have to fill up, which is really easy. First, get access to your vape tank. Most tanks are still filled from the bottom, so you’ll probably have to open it like you did when installing the coil, but some are filled from the top. Once you’ve found the right spot, use the dripper top on your e-liquid bottle to fill up the tank, being careful to avoid the stem in the middle of the tank.

 

Finally, screw your vape tank back together (being careful not to spill!) and connect it to your electronic cigarette. All you have to do now is wait five minutes for the e-liquid to soak into the wick. If you don’t do this, you can ruin your wick.  After five minutes, you can start vaping.

 

This brief guide covers the basics, but we also have a post with some more detailed instructions. If you’re looking for advice relating to a specific device, electronic cigarette reviews for the device will usually have the information you need.

 

Don't be Overwhelmed

 

Vaping is more complicated than smoking. This may put you off making the switch, but just remember that it really doesn’t take long to get used to. As you gain experience with vaping, you’ll learn what nicotine level suits you, the type of device you prefer and how to look after your gear. And once you’ve learned the basic safety tips here and elsewhere on the site, there really isn’t much to worry about at all. The key point is that even though there’s a lot of information to take in, it really isn’t as complicated as it might seem! Once you get to grips with the basics you’ll be able to keep vaping without issues.
