Why Did I Start This Site?

So, my reason for starting this e cig review website was rather unique (or irritating depending upon your point of view).

I love to smoke. My neighbor always has her morning Marlboro’s but always complains about how expensive it is. Despite her old age of 73, she doesn’t really have that much money to spend these days.

Since she would rather die than quit smoking (yes, she loves smoking that much!), I convinced her instead to try out electronic cigarettes and even had a free starter kit mailed to her doorstep. After doing some research, it turns out that not only do some e cigs have the look, taste, and feel of actual cigarettes, they are MUCH CHEAPER. The best part for me though, was that its second hand smoke is much less annoying to non smokers, such as my other neighbor’s children. Since I know a lot of people who also love to smoke, and after endlessly explaining the same things over and over to my friends and co workers, I figured other smokers could use the help.

Smokers like you.

Some of you reading this might be looking to modify their habits.

Many of you might just be looking for a cheaper way to satiate your habit.

A few may just want to try something new.

Whatever your case happens to be, e cigarettes are the way to go simply because they are healthier (compared to the real thing) and depending on which brand you choose to smoke, are cheaper and similar to the actual smoking experience.

What Are The Top Brands?

Each brand on this short list has very special features unique to them. Some are better in terms of looks and durability, others pricing, and some are better suited for newer ecig vapers. I’ve reviewed each brand in full detail, which I’ve included links to. As things change, I update the information accordingly.

The top ecig, that is universally agreed upon (for now) are the Marlboro like V2 Reds. You can check them out at You can use coupon code “lemonizer” for 10% off all v2 products and products.

The next best e cig brands are (official links to their website)

  1. Bull Smoke
  2. Halo Cigs
  3. South Beach Smoke
  4. Vapor Zone

My in depth review of each top brand are listed below

  1. V2
  2. Halo G6
  3. Bull Smoke
  4. South Beach Smoke
  5. Vapor Zone

How Close Are They To The Real Thing?

Depending on what you’re looking for, the look and feel is pretty much the same as real cigarettes.

However, taste is where each e cig brand differentiates itself from each other. The following have been tasted and tried

  1. Marlboro Reds are mostly mimicked by the V2 Cig Red 18 product
  2. Tobacco flavors are mostly identical to Bull Smoke Tobacco, Vapor Zone Flavors (all)), South Beach Smoke, and Halo Tribeca products
  3. For menthol flavors, so far only South Beach Smoke Menthols has been tasted to have the actual minty alcohol flavor

The best part is, many places that ban actual cigarettes or cigars are generally accepting of ecigs, provided that you let the staff know ahead of time what they actually are and that you are somewhat a regular customer. Note some places will still ban them outright anyway so always check before whipping them out.

Are They Cheaper Than Actual E Cigs?

YES! Even if you purchase the most expensive electronic cigs on the market, you will probably save more per smoke than actual tobacco products.

Typical costs for an actual smoke from an e cig will run you anywhere from 20 cents to 60 cents for high end smokes. An actual pack of, say Marlboro’s, can easily set you back for $16 $20, or $1 $1.25 per smoke. That’s a big difference in pricing.

It also helps that since electronic cigarettes are still relatively new, there isn’t much regulation or taxation on them just yet. Sales taxes may or may not apply depending on how hungry your state or locale is for internet taxing of products, further driving down prices for you.

The cheapest starter kit for e cigs that I have found online is from Bullsmoke. Their kit for the basic parts runs at $30 only while other vendors charge $50 for the same components. For refills, if you’re doing it yourself, V2 Cigs and Halocig Smokes are hands down the cheapest long term, running as cheap as 20 cents per smoke.

I do acting on the side and I can personally tell you A LOT of people in the Hollywood industry smoke. What’s interesting is that one of my fellow co actors actually prefers Lemon Electronic Cigarettes. The best part is even though he smoked it frequently between takes, he always used the same cig and didn’t have to recharge. I couldn’t smell the vapor from it but he was able to get his fix. Win win for both of us.

Now you see why I MUCH prefer that you smoke e cigs than actual tobacco products. Cheaper, cleaner, and less noticeable to others.

How Do Electronic Cigarettes Work?

Vogue’s E Cig Sample Kit With Usb Charger & 12V converter, Battery Cig Case, and Refill Cartridges

A typical kit for the complete smoking experiences requires

  1. A battery recharger, often a usb or usb with normal 12v electrical socket converter.
  2. A battery holder, which is shaped like an actual cigarette and vaporizes the liquid, which is often the nicotine and tobacco or other flavor.
  3. Refill cartridges for the liquid.

The picture on the right shows a Vogue starter kit that displays the essentials you need to start smoking a new way, whether you’re looking to change how you smoke, save money, or simply trying something newer and sleeker.

The battery case may also contain an led light at the end of it to mimic the “flare up” burning action of a real cigarette, giving you that look and feel of smoking when you inhale and exhale afterwards.
