Over the past month I’ve had the opportunity to review two new electronic cigarettes that are sold in the United Kingdom. Both are cheap e-cigarettes that offer a easy way to start vaping on a budget. The two are the Vape Club and Vapour Lites brands.
The 2 e-cigs look completely identical (except for the logo of course), but surprisingly they have different threading, so the cartridges are not compatible between the two. Both have the same great tobacco taste and the nicotine hit, especially with the 16mg nicotine cartridges that I have. Anything below that dose is for lighter smokers, mind you. The Vapour Lites battery has a blue lit tip, while the Vape Club one has a red lit tip.
Both batteries have a current capacity of 180 mAh which means that you’ll usually need 2 battery charges to smoke through 1 cartridge. One cartridge is equivalent to about a pack of regular cigarettes (maybe slightly less).
The airways on the Vapour Lites are slightly smaller so the airflow is a little more restricted than with the Vape Club e-cigarette. I actually prefer a tighter drag because it produces a thicker vapor.
These electronic cigarettes are dubbed automatic, because they work automatically by taking a drag. When smoking, or rather vaping an e-cig, your drags should be slow and long, this will allow the atomizer inside each disposable cartridge to warm up and evaporate more of the eliquid.
You can charge your e-cigarettes using your computer’s usb port or a electrical socket if you purchase a kit with a wall adapter.
You’ll find the Vapor Lites kits on the Vapor Lites website, where you’ll also find the more advanced eGo type e-cigarette which need to be refilled daily with eliquid, but are also better performing. The cheapest kit starts at £9.99.
The Vape Club website also features eGo type e-cigarettes among the beginners’ kits which start at £4.99. Vape Club is currently offering to “Try E-Cigarettes for Free” by paying for a delivery and verifying your age!
Regardless which brand you buy from, you’ll be glad you switched to this less harmful alternative to smoking.
