When it comes to electronic cigarettes, there are two ways you can go. You could purchase unbranded, generic products and save money as a result. Unbranded products are typically sold based on battery size and features. For example, for small batteries, you’d want to pay attention to weather the battery has KR808 or 501 wiring. Besides that, you’d just look at the price and buy a product that seems to be a good deal.
Needless to say, purchasing generic ecigarettes can be a bit like rolling the dice. I’ve gotten products that were quite good, as well as others that ended up being quite inferior.
The second approach to buying electronic cigarettes is to stick to well-known, trusted brands. If you follow this particular shopping strategy, you would want to read reviews of electronic cigarettes online. Some famous brands you should do research on are Blu Cigs, Halo Cigs, V2 Cigs, and other similar brands.
On average, purchasing from trusted brands means you’ll typically have to pay about 20% more for the products you buy. A small e-cig battery, for example, may cost you $12 or $13 as opposed to $10 for a generic brand. The upside is that you’ll usually be getting a better quality product. Also, if you use online coupons, such as this Halo Cigs coupon that you can get if you head over to E-cigbargains.com, you can get a bit of a discount on your purchase as well.
My favorite brand at the moment is Halo Cigs, and I particularly like their G6 batteries and cartomizers. After having tried a number of other brands, I find the G6 to be a longer lasting battery that requires less of a pull to activate (for the automatic batteries) compared to other brands I’ve tried.
One final point: In our last blog post, we talked about ways to save money. It turns out E-cigs are way cheaper than regular “analog” cigarettes. So if you happen to be a regular smoker, making the switch over to E-cigs is a smart move both for your physical and financial health. Depending on how many cigarettes you smoke a day, you could easily save $1000 or more every year by using e-cigs instead of normal cigarettes.
