Read These Facts Before You Buy Your Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit
So you are switching from smoking tobacco to “vaping” electric cigarettes? Good Choice! And let me say Thank you on behalf of all those who will no longer have to inhale your 2nd hand smoke. I am sure neither you nor your friends and family will miss the filthy ashtrays and cigarette butts, or having everything smell like ashtrays and cigarette butts.
It’s all pretty exciting, really. Congratulations, you have made a big decision.
Before you act on that decision by rushing off to buy your kit, there are a few more things you should know. You have a Lot of choices. First you might want to think about what size you want to get. Using a size you find comfortable is important to your enjoyment.
You can find smokeless cigarettes in a wide variety of sizes. The most popular sizes are those that come closest to cigarette sizes. There are no standardized sizes or name of sizes. It varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. It can get a little confusing. For instance, what they might call “Mini” Ecigs, are probably the closest in size to a standard American tobacco cig. You’ll also come across “Super cigs” (Bigger) and “Super minis”(the smallest).
When thinking about size, remember there is more to size, than just well, size. The smaller e-cigs are likely to have shorter battery life and a weaker vapor. The largest ones likely to have the strongest vapor and longest battery life.
In considering which smokeless cigarette kit you’ll buy, remember to check out the sizes they offer. Don’t forget flavors. If you are a die hard menthol smoker, you’ll want to be certain that they have menthol cartridges available for the e-cig you choose. Different manufacturers have different varieties of flavors available. Check the variety before purchasing in case you feel like branching out later on.
One last note to remember as you sort through all the ads for your very own smokeless nicotine delivery system:
Not all e-cigarettes are created equal. Some are prone to clogged atomizers ( a real pain in the neck). Others have terribly short battery life. Unfortunately there are many companies selling e-cigs that are simply poorly engineered, and manufactured on the cheap. The best you can do to avoid these problems is keep reading up, as you are doing.
Fortunately there are a handful of reputable companies with top of the line electronic cigarettes that will give you a satisfying “smoking” experience without all the hassles.
