I don’t know. I do know what has been working for me, and I know what I want out of vaping. You will want something different, I am sure. It seems there are as many likes and dislikes as there are different kinds of electronic cigarettes.
Well, most e-cigarette models basically work in the same way. In a nutshell, a battery powers an atomizer which vaporizes an e-liquid solution that is inhaled by the user. The main differences are in overall quality, dependability, as well as special, extra features that may appeal to you depending on your personality and needs. Everyone likes something for different reasons. The best idea is to get to an electronic cigaret retail store, and try a few models for yourself.
Some features to think about when choosing the best electronic cigarette:
1. How it looks. The first thing you may consider is the overall look. Most manufacturers started out to make their e cigarettes to look like a real cigarette. The cartridge is brown to look like a filter, the battery is made to look like main body of a tobacco cigarette and the end will even glow red when you inhale to add to a more realistic smoking experience. These models are great for seeing if you enjoy vaping. Some people stay with them because they are small, but most will change to bigger batteries and longer lasting liquid carriers.
There are many different colors and designs to choose from, as well as a lot of different styles of e cigs. There are even e-cigars and pipes that look quite realistic, and offer great vapor production. You will notice the store owners generally walk around with a huge thing called a mod.. this is a huge battery that really makes vaping more enjoyable, but it is a lot more costly, and most new vapors will not want to start with something that big.
2. LED color choice. As mentioned above, the traditional look is a red LED on the tip that lights up when you take a drag. However, you can also choose a green or blue LED. What difference does it make? If your LED is red, you won’t get as much attention from other smokers because it looks so realistic. On the other hand, if the end lights up green or blue, then you will attract a lot more attention from curious smokers that see the end of your ecig. This could be good or bad depending on how you feel about talking to people when they ask you about them. Do you like to remain more anonymous, or do you enjoy talking, and answering a few questions from people you may not know?
3. Vapor production. How much vapor you’re able to get on one puff is a big deal for most smokers. Generally speaking, the more volume, equals a more satisfying and realistic vaping experience. Even if the same nicotine volume is present, a smaller vapor production will make a smoker feel like he/she, is not getting what they are looking for.
4. The Atomizer. The atomizer is what vaporizes the e-liquid, and contributes greatly to overall vapor volume. A dirty, or clogged atomizer will not perform well. The most common problem is a clogged atomizer. You may want one that is easy to clean, or even rebuildable. However, you may want to consider a two-piece model where the nicotine cartridge and atomizer are one unit. Every time you change your cartridge you also get a fresh atomizer. This is usually the choice for people that are just too busy, or do not want to spend the time to do the required maintenance.
5. Life of the battery. Are you are going to use your e-cigarette a lot throughout the day? If so, you want to make sure your battery has battery life that will last for a whole day like an ego 1100 amh, or even something larger. You may also want to consider a car charger or pass through device, if you’re on the road a lot and don’t want to drain your battery when away.
6. Oh, all the flavors. Where do you start – how do you choose what will work for you. Do you want the traditional flavor of tobacco, or menthol tobacco? Many companies also offer you the choice of experimenting with a ton of flavors like, vanilla, chocolate, coffee or fruit flavors. There are well over 100 flavors to choose from. Most people start with a tobacco flavor, then later start checking out other flavors. Most stores will have samples you can test on the spot, to see if you like it.
7. Nicotine levels. E-liquids come in several different nicotine strengths: High, medium, low and zero nicotine. Some stores will let you tell them your nic level to put in, if they make their own liquids. If you are trying to get away from nicotine, it is easy to get a lower amount when you are ready to go lower.
Now that you know what to look for, with a little bit of hands on research, you should be able to find the best electronic cigarette that fits your personality and needs. Don’t make the mistake of buying the cheapest electronic cigarette you find, or the first one you see… I have found that it’s worth it to spend a few extra dollars to get a device that gives you the most realistic smoking experience, without the mechanical problems found in many of the cheaper models. It is not always the case, but generally from what I found, it is the norm.
I hope this helps point you in the right direction.
