Rechargeable electronic cigarettes Rechargeable electronic cigarettes are ideal for anyone that is new to vaping as they contain everything required to start vaping in one kit. The standard rechargeable electronic cigarette is designed to look and feel like a regular cigarette. Even though its design is quite compact, this electronic cigarette still contains the approximate equivalent to 40 cigarettes, but at a fraction of the cost, these electronic cigarettes are not only a healthier alternative but a more cost effective one.

Ego t The Ego t is more advanced than the traditional electronic cigarette offering a 1000mAh battery which produces more vapour and a smoother flavour. The Ego t is roughly the size of a chunky pen and uses a refillable glass tank instead of pre filled cartomisers. The eliquid refills are available in over 20 flavours and 4 different nicotine levels (0%, 0.8%, 1.8% & 2.4%).

E Shisha Litejoy e shishas are disposable, nicotine free electronic cigarettes that are available in 8 fruit flavours.
