It’s been quite a year for the e cigarette industry, but among all the chaos we can help you find the perfect brand to help you quit smoking for good. Here are our top 5 smokeless cigarettes for smokers who are quitting for the new year!

Why These E Cig Brands Made Our Top 5

As somebody who has been an avid e cigarette user for some time, I’ve noticed that people are all over the board as far as what they want in their first e cigarette. I bought my dad’s friend a starter kit for Christmas and he asked me where he could find strong tobaccco flavored e liquid. But the starter kit had come with a 10 mL bottle of something fruity like Raspberry Mist, and it turns out he loved it. You just never really know.

Some people are obsessed with the particulars when it comes to cigarettes, it’s like they aren’t just depenedent on nicotine but also the social rituals and the sensory experience. And then there are others (like me) who just want to get nicotine into their bloodstream whatever way is healthiest and best tasting.

Whether you’re shopping for yourself, a loved one, or a friend one of these brands will be a good fit. I’m going to go through all 5 brands and explain what type of smoker/personality they’d be best for.

V2 Cigs For the Versatile

V2 Cigs used to simply be another “cig a like” brand of electronic cigarette. They had great customer service and did quality control like nobody in the industry was doing it. But when it came down to it, their prefilled cartridges and limited battery life were just as bad as the next brand.

But this year, they changed the game completely. They created a tank to fit their mini batteries. They mixed the portability of the cig a like brands with the fun and cost saving of using tanks/clearomizers. Now, V2 Cigs customers can experiment with whatever e liquid they want, V2 made the decision not to force them to buy prefilled cartomizers over and over again like some brands do. Here’s what they look like

They also came out with the EX Battery, which is basically a battery that has more output and longer life per charge than their original battery. I brought mine to a concert because I didn’t feel like bringing a larger model in, and I had an amazing time with it. It can really produce some vapor. Here’s what those look like (I’m not sure what they were thinking with the playing card themed one&#8230

With these new developments, it’s really hard not to rank V2 Cigs as the top brand for beginners. Their product line is great for anyone who wants to be portable but also wants performance. They keep up with advancements in vapor technology and do it in style. And that’s why they top our list.

Halo Electronic Cigarettes For the Bold

Halo could also be called versatile, but I would say that if you know someone or are someone who likes to jump in and get their hands dirty when they try new things, go with the Halo Triton Tank System. It’s actually pretty easy, it’s just a larger battery and tank like I mentioned above (see our article on cartomizers and tanks to learn more). You fill the tank with e liquid, hook it up to the battery and you’re ready to go. Here’s a look at what the Triton Tank System comes with

Some people don’t want to mess with e liquid and prefer to buy prefilled cartridges, but the Halo Triton is an awesome way to get started in the world of vaping and it’s really not as hard as it seems.

The one thing I don’t like is that their Triton batteries and tanks don’t fit the traditional “eGo” style batteries or tanks. So you have to continue to buy their products. I prefer things to be open source, but it’s a good product anyway.

Be sure to check out their store. Remember that their Triton Tank Model is the more advanced, while the G6 is a basic mini e cigarette. We also have a coupon that can save you 5% off of your initial purchase BESTECIGLBOG

Apollo Electronic Cigarettes For All Types

Apollo started making some waves around a year ago. And at this point in time, they have a huge range of products that could fit just about anyone. They have the cig a like brands, they have the traditioanl eGo style batteries, and they have a nice selection of flavors. Plus, the price is extremely reasonable. Here’s a quick look at their 3 options. It may not seem like much, but some brands simply sell the same kit with just a few extra items and say they have a huge selection. Here’s what Apollo has going on

So once again, I would say that if the new e smoker wants to jump right in ,they should buy an eGo kit. But one thing to keep in mind is that eGo batteries are all manual, so it’s hard to use them when you’re doing things with your hands. Which is one of the reasons I wrote this piece about cig a like brands not being so bad.

Green Smoke Those Who Enjoy The simpler things

If you know someone who wants to feel like they’re actually smoking real cigarettes, my best guess would be Green Smoke. I personally just think they are another brand selling the same thing, but they must have made some adjustments because they have a devoted and loyal following of people who just love Green Smoke.

They’ve also been around longer than anyone else on the list, which says something about their product quality. Green Smoke is good for those who dont’ want to get too advanced. It’s simple and it gets the job done.

Their online store is also very well done. Check it out here.

South Beach Smoke Anyone who uses a Mac

South Beach is the same situation as Green Smoke, a high quality cigarette lookalike. The one thing I can say about South Beach Smoke, because I’ve only tried their product when I sampled it for the blog, is that they have a nice variety of flavors. Yes, they are in prefilled cartridges but it’s still nice to have the selection. It’s as if the flavors were apps, the Mac user simply can’t resist the idea of those beautiful icons and flawless apps. Anyway, take a look at their long line of flavors

If you know someone who would like a simple yet tasty electronic cigarette, than South Beach Smoke is the way to go.

Public backs plans to remove branding from cigarette packets

Electronic cigarettes – buy wholesale smokeless e cigarettes online

Almost two thirds of people support moves to sell cigarettes in plain packaging, suggesting tobacco companies will soon lose the battle to protect their brands’ identities.

The government will publish a consultation on Monday examining plans to strip all branding from cigarette packs sold in England. The move has been welcomed by health groups.

“Pack designs are used to promote brand imagery, and also distract attention from health warnings,” said Professor John Britton, director of the UK Centre for Tobacco Control Studies. “Putting tobacco into plain packs creates no problem for existing users who want to continue to buy the product, but protects children and young people from becoming familiar with and perhaps identifying with specific brands.”

Branded cigarette packs are considered vital to the profits of the tobacco firms, which are mounting a ferocious lobbying campaign to defend their right to differentiate their products.

But an independent YouGov survey of 10,000 adults, conducted for Action on Smoking and Health, suggests 62% of people support plain packaging while only 11% oppose it. The survey found that only 6% believe the tobacco industry can be trusted to “tell the truth”.

Ash also claims around eight out of 10 people support smoke free legislation, with the majority of the public in favour of further restrictions on smoking in public and on tobacco promotion.

Deborah Arnott, chief executive of Ash, said the poll showed the cigarette companies were fighting a losing battle. “Big Tobacco has the money for a fight, but money can’t buy legitimacy,” Arnott said. “Now that even a business friendly government like ours can say they want the tobacco industry to have no business in the UK there’s nowhere left to turn. This is the endgame for Big Tobacco.”

A spokesman for the British Medical Association said plain packaging was key to the strategy for reducing levels of smoking in the UK. “As doctors we see first hand the devastating effects of tobacco addiction, and therefore we support moves to reduce the number of people taking up this deadly habit,” the spokesman said.

But a backlash against the proposals is already mobilising.

“It would appear that Andrew Lansley the health secretary has made up his mind before the consultation has even been launched on Monday,” said Simon Clark, director of the smokers’ group Forest. “We do think that the total process is a total farce.”

The Association of Convenience Stores, which represents corner shops, has vowed to fight the proposal. “We do not believe that government should impose such a measure at a time when the recently enacted tobacco display ban is still to be implemented in England, Wales and Northern Ireland,” said James Lowman, its chief executive. “The confusion that this would create would create further regulatory burdens on thousands of businesses.”

Tobacco firms argue that they have a right to defend their intellectual property rights.

“Our trademarks are protected by law and we have a fundamental right to differentiate our brands from those of our competitors,” said a spokesman for Imperial Tobacco, which manufactures the Lambert & Butler and Embassy brands.

The spokesman warned that generic packaging would increase “the already high level of counterfeit product available in the UK”.

Australia is the only country so far to pledge to introduce plain packaging.
