The popularity of e-cigarettes (also known as electronic cigarettes or e-cigs) has no doubt grown over the years as people look for a “healthier alternative” to traditional cigarettes. Today, there are numerous manufacturers, types, brands, designs and flavors on the market, something that can make the selection process a little daunting. But by considering a few factors, you can find the right e-cigarette for your needs. Here are some of them.
Believe it or not, design not only has a huge bearing on the overall look & feel of the cigarette but also its size as well as functionality. There are typically three options to consider; mini, mid-size and APV (advanced personal vaporizers) models. The mini devices are commonly preferred by beginners and are small, lightweight and relatively easy to use. Mid-size models, on the other hand, are slightly larger than the mini and also offer longer battery life and performance. APVS are specifically designed for experienced smokers and as such are more complicated.
2. Cartridge style or refillable?
If you want to enjoy your e-cig while at work, in a bar or other places where there are crowds of people but don’t want to draw unnecessary attention, then cartridge-style models can be the perfect choice for you. They have a discreet appearance as they are designed to look like the conventional cigarette. But if you are not bothered by other people’s curious eyes and want to get the complete vaping experience, go for the refillable liquid model.
3. Product Reviews
Be sure to take some time to read third-party reviews about various electronic cigarette models and brands. This one is pretty easy because there are numerous websites, blogs and other platforms that contain neutral information about products. Some will even have opinions from people who have used the product itself! By reading some of these, you can get a deeper insight about the product and therefore make a wise decision.
4. Where to buy
You can purchase e-cigarettes and accessories from a local store or online, and both have their own pros and cons that you should consider. While a local store can help you narrow down to a particular brand, their prices could be up to three times higher than online, plus they might have limited choices. Shopping online offers a larger selection at better prices, but you need to be careful and only transact with trusted stores lest you could get inferior products or accessories.
