E Cigarette Guide 2020
One of the best things about switching from smoking to vaping in 2020 is the choice of e cigarette devices now available to you. From the simplest one to the most customisable vape mods, we're here to help you make your choice today.
What Is An E Cigarette?
In simple terms, an e cigarette is made up of a battery (which provides power), a tank which houses the e-liquid and a heating element (or ‘coil’) which heats up a liquid, turning it to vapour which you inhale.
This liquid can contain varying levels of nicotine, replacing the nicotine which you would usually get from cigarettes. It can also be provided with no nicotine. The liquid also provides the flavour.
What Is The Best E Cigarette For You?
Everyone is different and different form-factors and powers suit different people’s needs.
Simply put, each e cigarette consists of 3 basic elements; a battery which powers your device, a tank which houses your e liquid and a coil.
It is a personal choice as to which device works best.
E Cigarette Device Differences
A battery powers your device and comes in different sizes. Some devices use an integrated battery while the others use replaceable cells. All batteries need to be charged, a charger is included with every starter kit.
In simple terms, the capacity (mAh) of the battery affects the vaping capabilities of the device – the higher the mAh the longer the battery will last on one full charge. This alongside the e liquid capacity of the cartomizer or POD and also your vaping technique.
Depending on the device you choose some require charging more often than the others.
Cigalikes are small, slim e-cigs which are usually about the same size as a tobacco cigarette. Due to their small size, they don’t have a very long battery life and aren’t always the most powerful. Cigalikes usually have 180 mAh sized batteries. You will probably get 1/2 hours of use from one on a single charge. These devices are very easy to use, simply screw a pre-filled cartomizer to the end of your device and go. As a cartomizer holds less than 1ml of e-liquid, your cartomizers will need to be replaced more frequently compared to devices that use refillable tanks or PODs.
Vape Pens and AIO devices typically have a bigger battery. A 900mAh battery should last most users about 4/6 hours before needing to be recharged. A 2600mAH battery should last most user 12/14 hours before needing recharged. There is a restricted draw on the inhale which feels more like a cigarette. Very easy to set-up, these devices simply require you to screw a coil into your tank, fill with liquid, screw or click on to device and vape. This allows you to choose from more e-liquid options - every tank on the market has a 2ml capacity - it is a more effective way to vape than using a cigalike, as it is more customisable to your own preference.
POD MOD – a pod mod is simply a battery to which you click in a POD pre-filled with e-liquid (up to 2ml). This is a modern progression of the more old fashioned cigalike,. POD MODs can have high battery capacities – e.g. JAC Vapour VIM is 2600mAh. These are very simple to use, just click in a POD and vape. The downside is you have to replace each POD once it is used up so it is not the cheapest entry to vaping but has no real learning curve, which some prefer when starting.
Vape Mods & Box Mods – these are separate to the rule. It will depend on the mAh of the IMR battery and the wattage you are using the mod. Therefore, calculating how long a mod will last on one charge isn’t an exact science as the use of these devices are dependent on personal vaping style. But as these are more experienced vapers, by this stage you know what you like and how your own style affects your battery life. Vape mods are typically advised for advanced vapers who know how to get the best out of the customisable chip and feature sets
