As a stop smoking site I am frequently asked what the best e-cig is and why. I try to answer this question for everyone but recently thought that it would be a lot easier to create a blog that would be publicly available for anyone that is interested.
Obviously the advice that I offer in this blog is accurate based on my opinions at the time of writing and I will try to update it if our opinions change.
The short answer is that I recommend the V2 e-cigs, vape pens and vaporizers but allow me to give you a little bit more information.
V2 e Cigs are quality and they have proper tested e-liquids so you know what goes into your e-liquids – most companies do not give lab reports! V2 also manufacture and design etc. where just about everyone else buys from China and sticks a brand name on the e-cig – I believe there are 2 companies in UK who use their own facilities – V2 is one of them.
Beyond simply knowing which e-cigarette to choose I would also like to give you some other food for thought.
My experience of switching to e-cigs suggests you need to ensure you are fully covered (i.e. no chance of making an excuse to go out in the middle of the night to buy fags because your battery is broken/uncharged hiding itself from you etc.) Have a quality product and ensure you can’t make any excuses to nip out and buy some cigs. You need to have 3 batteries minimum for example if using the smaller cigarette style e cigs, alternatively the V2 Pro 3 vape pen will last all day while you then charge overnight. I use the Pro 3 BUT I still have 2 of the V2 smaller e cigarettes for convenience and back up – just in case! If you work from a pc a lot then also get a power cig, this connects to your pc usb port for all day vaping. If you are out and away from a plug – e.g. travel in car a lot make sure you have a PCC (personal charging case – this charges your e-cig without the need for a power supply) so you can charge batteries wherever you are.
Make sure you get a sampler pack of cartridges so you can find out exactly what taste and strength suits you –normally 18 mg if you smoke regular cigs. Too weak and you will be down the garage buying cigs. Final touch – I like to vary my vaping a bit to keep me from getting bored and so I use cartridges that are prefilled mostly – but now and again I use e-liquid in a self-filling mini-tank. V2 call theirs the ex-blank – here once you know which taste and strength of cartridge you like you can then buy separately the e-liquid equivalent and fill your mini-tank – this method give a similar experience to the prefilled carts but just a little bit more oomph!
Good luck – I have been on e cigs now for over 3 years now and my lungs have cleared – no coughing in the am, massively fitter, and saving money too!
