What type of electronic cigarette brand should you use? The main two types for beginners are the mini e-cigarettes and top tank simple mods. The mini e-cigarette is the ones you see on TV a lot mostly from companies like Blu Cigs. They have large marketing budgets and cool blue cases but they are the worst tasting in our opinion.

The top tank ones are way more affordable, you get to put whatever e-juice you want to put in them and you will experience a better flavor. Scroll down to the next section to see both types recommended.

Advanced users are into Mods where the voltage and wattage are variable or mechanical. These are more expensive and fun but later on but they are a lot to deal with and over kill if you are new. We recommend top tanks for someone trying to quit smoking.

These are the refillable types with tanks on the top. Most common type you see today and best for majority of the public. Similar to the picture, these are made famous by Joyetech but we don’t recommend Joyetech because they leak horribly.

Review Rating 4.5 out of 5

halo triton kitSooner or later you are going to out grow the mini e-cigarette style and want to get something with more power and Triton is the best e-cig cigarette in this field. Halo juices are 100% made in the USA and make the highest quality of products we have ever tested. They have a very royal following that never seem to switch to a different brand. If quality and fair value is on your mind. You have to try Halo. They are also rated #1 e-cig by PC magazine 2 years running.



  • You get two batteries, choice of 400 or 650mAh for the same pricetriton-variable voltage
  • Two tanks
  • 1 charger
  • cone mouth piece
  • case

Personally, i’d build a kit so you can get the variable voltage battery for $24.99 x2, 2 tanks $6.99, simple USB charger for $6.99 =$70.95 for the current setup I’m using. It’s more but variable voltage is a game charger if you haven’t tried one yet vaping at 4.7v is a lot thicker vapor production! I don’t use the cones at all.

Halo G6 Starter kit $44.99

halo g6 starterRating 4.5 out of 5

These are the type that still look like cigarettes and are usually disposable cartomizers, we like Halo G6 by far the most because they have the option to refill them or get pre-filled. They never taste burnt and they have the highest quality flavors. They have a rubberized coating which makes them non-slip and also impact resistant unlike others. We compare them against V2 in our full review.

Green Smoke Pro Kit $99.97

Rating 4.0 out of 5

The third company I recommend trying is Green Smoke. This is a completely different style of flavor and it’s usually the people that don’t like V2 cigs end up like Green Smoke. They are more expensive, non refillable (technically) but they have some really good vapor production and flavor that is very smooth. They don’t have a manual battery which is a downfall but if you liked smoking a high quality cigarette before than you might like to try this brand as it’s higher end quality.

Here’s some of the important FAQ about e-cigarettes in 2014



Worst – Brands that aren’t worthy of your money

Blu Cigs
  • Pure VG Juice Poor selection
  • Over priced
  • Flavorless
Victory Ecigs
  • Short cutoff
  • low power
  • hidden monthly contracts
  • horrible vapor production
  • would be top of my list of the worst. I ordered two within a 1 week time frame-the first one arrived cracked and never could get the menu system to work like the instructions claimed it would. The 2nd one lasted 2 days before it cracked right above the screw on cap. It cracked while being unscrewed to change out battery.
21st century smoke
  • I have taken several of these apart to find it isn’t the actual batteries that fail but the vacuum switches.

all the vacuum style(automatic) batts have the same issues in my findings they can’t handle the vacuum pressure put on them.




Which produce the most vapor?

This actually depends on what you mean by vapor? either you want to know about thickness of the vapor ie. it lingers around for a longer time or about the device can produce.

In the first instance getting a thicker vapor is cause by the company to use a higher ratio of (VG) vegetable glycerin to (PG) propylene glycol. I personally only like 10-20% VG because of the flavoring of it is not as rich as in PG but VG has a thicker clouds of “smoke” produced. Blu Cigs actually uses 100% Wisconsin Made Johnson Creek Smoke E-juice so they tend to create billows of smoke, but the flavor isn’t there. I actually taste very little when vaping Blu Cigs. You can read more on Blu cigs here.

The other way to get more vapor production is by voltage, so you can basically ignore the differences between the simple types of e-cigarette batteries such as 306 vs 808 vs 801 vs 510 and 901′s which I do like.. But this comes down to a wattage game.

Take the voltage of your battery, most eGo kits will be advertised as 3.7v which start at 4.2v charged then dwindle down to about 3.2v.

To find the wattage you square the voltage so… 3.7 x 3.7 = 13.69 and then you divide it by 2 to get the watts 13.69/2 = 6.8W.itaste-vtr This is the typical range of most starter kits and it’s above that of a e-cigarette kit like V2 or Green smoke. So experienced users tend to switch to a variable voltage device I recommend the Innokin Itaste VTR which produces 6 volts or 16 watts. This beast will bellow anything you put into the device. This will produce the higher wattage giving you higher nicotine


Variable Voltage: 3.0 – 6.0 volts
Variable Wattage: 3.0 – 15.0 W Short Circuit Protection




Are they Effective?

Yes, the best electronic cigarette brands are far more safe than cigarettes and are an effective nicotine replacement therapy to help you quit tobacco.

There’s a lot of bad press of course in the media about e-cig companies and it’s a legalistic issue, nothing else. In the USA, smoking devices have to go through the FDA approval and electronic cigarettes have not done so yet. So technically suppliers can not call it a smoking cessation product. Other wise they would get a warning like this from the

However all this legal requirements don’t change the fact that electronic cigarettes are a nicotine replacement just like the patch, gum, lozenges etc. We don’t have the exact numbers but more people are having success with e-cigs than using any other method whether the FDA likes it or not.


Which brands use the safest ingredients?

With the bulk of electronic cigarette companies getting their VG and PG juices from China, it’s hard to control the quality of the brands. Using a brand that is reputable and produced in the US is your best choice.

here’s a quote from V2 Cigs

The final stages of the manufacturing process, and all quality control and liquid testing is done right here in Miami, Florida… we also own our own factory abroad, which is managed entirely by Americans.

Our Juice contains 3 primary ingredients; Propylene Glycol, Pharmaceutical Grade Nicotine (usually sourced in Europe), and Food Grade Flavoring (their are other ingredients in the flavor compounds, but that is different for each flavor)…. also note, that after you heat up the liquid it evaporates, so you are actually breathing in flavored water vapor with nicotine.

As a final note on this subject… V2 Nicotine Products are intended as a safer alternative to smoking tobacco cigarettes. As a general rule, it is probably better to breath air than to breath in E-Cig vapor, but our products are not intended for all air breathers, our products are intended to help people quit smoking, and when compared with the harmful and toxic effects of cigarette smoke the results are night and day.

To be worried about e-cigs, when you are smoking real cigarettes, is comparable to ordering a “diet” coke with 2 bacon double whoppers. Don’t sweat the small stuff, kill the smoke, before it kills you!

With a cigarette you are exposing your mouth, throat, and lungs to thousands of toxins, many of which are extremely carcinogenic, like Carbon Monoxide and Tar. Electronic Cigarettes do not contain these things!

Can the government ban the online sale of e-cigarettes

It’s certainly within the authority of the Federal government to restrict or ban the online sale of electronic cigarettes, though there would have to be some rational basis upon which to do so. It’s far more likely that state regulations will be in place before any Federal action is taken. We doubt they would ever ban e-cigs but more likely try to tax them more likely in the next couple of years.

What’s it like to smoke an Vapor cig?

The sensation you will get from an e-cig is different than that of a cigarette. At first you may find them harsh, and even may get a headache from the change in delivery of nicotine. But you will get used to that in a matter of days. You find them dramatically better than tobacco very quickly, with so many different flavors and harshness levels available. They tend to range from smooth and mild flavors like Green Smoke to harsher throat hits like South Beach Smoke. You’ll have something like V2 cigs in the middle and a variable voltage device like Innokin iTaste VTR for the ultimate vaping experience. I didn’t try it for the longest time until I had a friend use one, then I tried and never looked back. I’m confident you’ll be the same way.

Is second hand vapor harmful?

No, you should not be worried, the vapor before it is inhaled is between 100 and 1000 times less toxic than the side-stream smoke from a cigarette. After it has been exhaled there is even less of the (very few) active chemicals left.
It would be more worrying to be in a night-club where a “smoke machine” is in use, this uses the same base chemicals and is almost impossible to avoid. But that is rated as harmless – so basically NO!, there is no need to worry at all, and if it improves your colleagues temper/attitude, then it is a definite plus.

Can e-cigarettes help you stop smoking? Find out if e-cigarettes can help you stop smoking in this article from Discovery Health.

Sam J. Macek‘s insight:

there’s a lot of controversy in this article on tobacco. Basically saying smokers should hold off on trying electronic cigarettes until there’s more evidence that these devices are safe.. Tell that to the person who’s tried every drug, patch and gum and is nearly dead from tobacco. They need to stop now and while e-cigs can’t be marketed as quit smoking devices. That’s exactly what they are and they have 10x the success rate of any product on the market. End of story. Whether you use it quit smoking and nicotine completely or just to replace it is up to you.
