The Best Cig-Like E Cigs

Many people start of their vaping by trying out what are termed 'Cig-Like E Cigs'. The clue to how these devices work really does lie in the name - they are designed to resemble a tobacco cigarette as far as possible, in terms of aesthetics, function and flavour.

Generally speaking, they are cheaper than other vaporizers and many models include disposable components, yet quality models can be very effective especially for people weaning themselves off tobacco and onto vape.

Here's a few frequently asked questions about Cig-like E Cigs:

Why Bother With These In The First Place? Shouldn't I Just Start With A Proper Vaporizer?

Why Bother With These In The First Place? Shouldn't I Just Start With A Proper Vaporizer?

This is important to qualify - cig-like e cigs are vaporizers, they differ from vape pens and what many people consider 'proper vaporizers' by simply being easier to use. Plenty of people have in the past been put off by electronic cigarettes because when they first came on the scene they were simply not very good. Nowadays there's a whole spectrum of premium quality cig-a-like vaporizers that many people actually prefer to other models, largely thanks to their ease of use, high quality vape and steady dependability.

What Makes Cig-A-Like E Cigs Better In Some Cases?

What Makes Cig-A-Like E Cigs Better In Some Cases?

They're easy to use - most are simply plug in and enjoy with easily transferable cartridges that are usually pre-loaded with e-liquid (some models allow for empty cartridges that can be manually loaded with e liquid). Every cartridge will deliver exactly the same experience, which is why a premium model of this variety of electronic cigarette is in some cases a better option. Compared to vape pens they're considerably less hassle - parts need replacing far less often and there's no mess with spilling liquids or risk of flooding tanks. Plus, there's the advantage that they handle like a cigarette, and look like a smoking device - the same of which cannot be said of many other vape products!

Why Are Some Cig-Like Kits More Expensive Than Other Vape Devices?

Why Are Some Cig-Like Kits More Expensive Than Other Vape Devices?

In a word - quality. The best manufacturers - let's say V2 Cigs for example - make a range of products that are of really high quality and a world away from old cig-a-likes. They are more expensive because of this superior quality, plus the added fact that their starter kits often come complete with a lot of components, cartridges and accessories. This makes them great value for those buying in bulk and wanting to get started with everything they need, whereas vape pens often require spares and parts (atomizers especially) to be bought separately.

What Are The Overall Advantages Of Cig-Like E Cigs?

What Are The Overall Advantages Of Cig-Like E Cigs?

  • They resemble a tobacco cigarette and many people find this an advantage when taking up vaping, simply because they are used to the design and won't stand out in the crowd.
  • Nice and compact! This is an under-rated convenience as they are usually quite small and slim, and will require perhaps only a spare tiny cartridge or two when out and about.
  • If you can light a cigarette you can use an electronic cigarette. They're so easy to use, and much safer too!
  • Modern products in this category perform really well. What they lack in upgrade potential they make up for with an inherent reliability. This is a reason many choose to stick with them for years.

What Are The Disadvantages Of Cig-Like E Cigs?

What Are The Disadvantages Of Cig-Like E Cigs?

  • Some vapers frown on them because they so resemble cigarettes. They believe that vaping should be considered an entirely different pursuit, and without the negativity that surrounds tobacco.
  • A tank system with a solid battery will always out perform a cig-like e cig due to their being much larger, having more power and highly specialized components.
  • While reliable cartridges do need to be replaced and this can work out more expensive than e liquid led devices. This is the downside of reliability and ease of use.
