The Best Ego-Style E Cigs

By far and away the most commonly used version of the electronic cigarette, the Ego Style E Cig allows for a cost effective, easy to use and satisfying vape experience ideal for most newcomers and many long-term vapers too. They differentiate from Cig-like e cigs in that they are dual unit (battery & clearomizer) rather than being one single 'stick' and typically don't resemble a cigarette at all. They allow for a greater range of choice than Cig-like's in regards to parts and flavours, yet require a little more effort to maintain.

How Ego Style E Cigs Work

How Ego Style E Cigs Work

Most people start off by picking up a kit that will likely include a battery, a couple of clearomiers, charger, instructions and possibly a small bottle of e-liquid. Like all e cig starter kits, some are more expensive than others and will include more components. The clearomizer is manually filled by carefully squeezing drops of e liquid into the tank, where it is then sealed with a screw on atomizer/coil. This is attached to the battery and that's it - ready to go.

Are They All Similar Quality?

Are They All Similar Quality?

No! The Ego style comprises products that look alike and operate in similar ways but the quality of manufacture is super important. Low end products are far more likely to wear out quicker and have leakage/burn issues than those in the mid-upper bracket, simply because of the quality of manufacture. A company that produces 100,000 Ego style personal vapourizers a year will almost always be far more reliable than a factory producing 10 million per annum.

Are Parts/Liquids Compatible Between Devices?

Are Parts/Liquids Compatible Between Devices?

E liquids will work with any device that takes them regardless of the manufacturer - yet they will perform better on higher quality devices. It's always a poor idea to swap batteries and parts between different companies unless they are the most basic and generic of components - some batteries may look the same but operate to different standards, and also leakage is likely when parts aren't designed to screw directly together.

How Often Do Parts Wear Out?

How Often Do Parts Wear Out?

Batteries will need occasional replacing as they lose their maximum charge over time, but a well maintained battery charged correctly as explained in the instructions will last an average person 9-12 months before becoming impractical - it's always a good idea to have a couple in use at a time. Clearomizers, atomizers and coils will need more frequent replacement but these parts are very cheap and unlikely to cost more than a few pounds per month at most.
