    Which Electronic Cigarette To Choose For Which Profile?

    All the electronic cigarette kits presented on our website are constituted of reliable products, acclaimed by consumers. We advise for their efficiency and simple utilisation.

    Which E-Cigarette To Choose For Beginners?

    As we know which e-cig model to avoid, what is the model to begin with? It is prefered to begin with a rechargeable model. The rechargeable e-cigarettes are simple products that contain a clearomiser. This is a reservoir in which we find a vaporisation system and a permanent battery to heat and vaporise the e-liquid. Using the clearomiser creates a sensation in the throat comparable to that of an ordinary cigarette. The clearomiser is suitable for a large number of e-liquids. The latest generation of clearomisers are equipped with airflow rings that allow you to regulate the inflow of air into the clearomiser.

    How Does An Electronic Cigarette Work?

    An electronic cigarette consitutes of a battery and a clearomiser system. The clearomiser is composed of a tank and vaporiser system, named the coil. The battery provides the electrical power to the coil. Two important points to take into account when choosing your e-cigarette, is the autonomy of the battery and the power that it can provide. These are directly related to the vape produced. The clearomiser is composed of a reservoir, a coil (composed of resistive wires and cotton fiber) and a drip tip. The wick of the coil transported by the capillarity of e-liquid contained in the tank up to the resistive wires. The pressure of the activation button of the battery provokes the heating of the resistive wires and vaporises the e-liquid in contact. The vapor produced rises up to the drip tip and is inhaled by the user. The size of the tank, which means the autonomy of e-liquid is crucial to take into account the choice of your electronic cigarette. For more details, see the Clearomiser Guide. The value and the type of coil influences the quantity of vape produced. The coil is consumable which regularly changes (in average 1 coil has a long life of 15 days).

    I want an electronic cigarette that produces a lot of clouds, which vape device do I choose?

    We recommend a starter kit that comes with a sub-ohm tank and a variable wattage device, being a box mod or pen style mod. In order to create clouds, you would need to make sure your coil’s resistance is 0.5ohm or below and set your mod at around 70+ watts, however, all is down to personal preference. In addition to this, you would need to use a liquid that is of 60VG or higher. VG produces thicker and denser vapour which is smoother on the throat.

    Is an Electronic Cigarette more expensive than tobacco?

    The answer depends on how frequent you would use the Electronic Cigarette. Closely related to purchasing an Electronic Cigarette is to cosider other cost factors such as the purchase of liquids and resistors that eventually wear out. The amount of e-liquid and the absorbtion speed of the coil is related to the user frequency of the electronic cigarette. If you consume a high level of el-iquid (around 10ml/per day), it might be more advantouge to make your own liquid. This is called DIY (Do It Yourself), which will save you money and is rather simple to do. To further economise, you could construct your own coil and material with the help of so-called "reconstructables" or "repairabes". This could further reduce the costs of vaping, but would require some basic technical knowledge to fulfill.
