What Are The Best E Cigarettes?
Finding the best e cigarette brands, especially cig a like e cigarettes is not an easy task. We know this as well as anyone having used a large number of devices. They can be really hit and miss!
This guide is taking a look at the best e cigarette brands that make and supply mini e cigarettes, also known as cig a likes.
For us, choosing the best of the bunch in this e cig category is actually quite easy. Unlike vape pens and box mods, where there are hundreds, if not thousands of products available, the ‘quality’ mini e cigarette products available are easier to short list as the brands that produce them is relatively smaller.
Cig-a-likes for many new vapers are a stepping stone into higher powered vapor cigarettes. At the same time many people are happy to stick with that familiar looking device.
Lets get onto the business of choosing the best ecigarettes!
V2 Cigs is probably one of the biggest e cig brands in the USA. They have a number of options all of which are good starting points. They sell great tasting USA made e liquid that is tested rigorously. They also allow you to view batch reports and test results.
Their entry-level ‘Standard kit’ is the cheapest at $39.95 and comes with everything you need to start. The kit includes 2 batteries (size of your choice), 10 Cartridges (choice of 10 flavors and 5 nicotine strengths), wall adapter and USB charger.
If you prefer the idea of using bottled e liquid to fill cartridges then the V2 Standard E liquid kit or EX Series kits will be the ones to choose. Priced at $59.95/$72.95 respectively. These include 1 x V2 Platinum 50ml bottle or 6-flavor e liquid sampler, 3 mini clearomizer tanks that are easy to fill and can be used multiple times.
So plenty of options! May seem confusing at first but they are all really just variations of two types of e cig, standard and EX Series.
Just choose the package that fit’s your needs.
