Whether it is ourselves or a loved one, smoking is an all too familiar habit to many of us. Any smoker probably is quite familiar with the wide variety of brands out there. It s almost instinctive for a smoker to know what he or she wants and needs to look for in a cigarette.

“If my usual brand, American Spirit, isn t available I usually can go with Winston s as they offer the closest taste, smoothness and burn time,” says a friend who s a smoker.

But when looking for alternatives to regular cigarettes altogether, you may not quite know what to look for.

Smokeless electronic cigarettes, which essentially vaporize nicotine infused liquid that you inhale, is one alternative starting to catch the attention of smokers everywhere.

To help those unfamiliar with electronic cigarettes, we ve put together a list of 6 factors you should think about when evaluating the various brands of e cigs available on the market today.

Most are only available online right now, but they re also becoming more prevalent in truck stops, gas stations and tobacco shops across the country.

6 Factors to Consider ( besides price) when Evaluating E Cigarette Brands

  • Customizable Does the particular brand offer the ability to interchange parts and customize the e cigarette to your particular needs? Does a particular brand allow you the opportunity to essentially build your own e cig?

    Flexibility is key if you re simply looking for something quick, do they offer good starter kits? Being able to customize though will make things easier ( and less expensive) when you look to upgrade or further adapt your e cigarette to your tastes.

  • Usability Is the e cigarette easy to use? What are others saying about the draw, ease of connecting the battery, atomizer or cartridge? Are there any complaints circulating in forums or blogs about how difficult a particular e cigarette is to use?
  • Battery Charge/Life How long does the battery charge last? If you re an on the go user, will they be able to last a long enough time between charges? How many times can the battery be charged before replacing it?
  • Look & Feel What do you look for in smoking? Do you prefer a thin cigarette or more of a cigar feel between your fingers? Are you mainly interested in using your e cigarette at home or are you on the go a lot and need something more portable?
  • Parts & Maintenance How easy is it to clean the electronic cigarette? Is it easy to change or refill cartridges? Are replacement parts easily available at a low cost?
  • Nicotine Flavors & Strengths Does the particular e cigarette brand offer a lot of flavors? What strengths (usually expressed in milligrams) do they offer? Can you increase or decrease the nicotine strength as your e cigarette tastes and requirements develop?

As you can see, there are many questions you can ask within each of these six factors. It s sometimes easy to just jump on the first one that looks good. Upon deeper examination though, you will find all brands are different.

Some allow you to customize, buy accessories and enjoy your e cigarette at the most effective cost while others are pretty uniform and require you to purchase an entirely new unit.

Buying Tip Watch the Introductory video about different types of electronic cigarettes for sale. It’s six action packed minutes highlighting the latest offers out there you’ll come across as you search for e cigarettes online.

Translation this is a conglomerate of reviews, a virtual library and consensus of minds from near and far, from all walks of life. These are the “mean” reviews, based on a plethora of information. In short, these aren’t slighted by one race, creed, sex, or demographic. Enjoy.

The first review we ever posted online was our Blu Cigs review. This brand is one of the most widely distributed on the market, and is available in places like Walgreens.

Something you can’t buy at Walgreens, but are sure to like if you are a fan of smoking hookah, is the electronic hookah review. It’s taste is JUST like a hookah, only there are no coals to constantly light and no tobacco packets to always refill.

If you are looking for the cheapest e cig brand, check out our newly posted Bull Smoke Review.

This brand sells the SAME or HIGHER quality starter kits but for a lower price. Their model is just basically to acquire customers because they believe in their product line so much. It’s been compared to the top rated electronic cigarette brands and has a serious following due to their amazing customer service, no frills offer (you won’t find much other than batteries and cartridges, but what else do you really need?), and their in your face, rough and tough logo.

Lastly, if you are looking to really get in on the cheap, we’re starting to talk about various disposable e cigs that are sold at gas stations, convenience stores, and more. These electric cigs are the kind you can throw away after you’ve used up all the puffs normally around 250 300. They are great if you forget to bring along your e cig battery or don’t have any way to recharge your electric cigarette battery. Other than that, as mentioned, you can get one for under $10 normally and use it as a way to see if you like smoking e cigs. However, the disposables, at least in our opinion, aren’t as high in quality as regular e cigs sold in starter kits.

A brand that has us screaming for more was just reviewed.
