Why eGo e-cig
Because eGo e-cig is the most popular e-cigarette style today. Together with also good but less known EVOD, iGO, KGO and others, it is a mid-size or a second generation electronic cigarette.
FYI, first generation e-cigs are cigarette-style, third generations are so-called APVs – advanced personal vaporizers that come in all kind of shapes, screwdriver like Provari being one of the most popular. But, we are talking about eGo here for a couple of very good reasons.
It is very cost-effective, without sacrificing good and solid multi-hour vaping experience. Its total cost (batteries, cartomizers or clearomizers, e-liquid, accessories) is about 2-3 times less than tobacco cigarettes. This I can safely say and prove.
People who tend to save more than 2-3 times money related to their tobacco cig costs, mostly buy cheap stuff. I am not an advocate of that. Let’s be careful for our own sake first, then also for the vaping community sake as well. Don’t buy e-liquid from unchecked sources. Today when many US, UK and other manufacturers make their own e-liquids and test it in reputable labs with certificate to show, I’d strongly advise buying from these.
Ok now, back to eGo e-cig – 99% safer and 3 times cheaper – if you are still on the fence about switching from tobacco to electronic cig, I don’t know what else to tell you.
With its thick smoke i.e. vapor and relatively high battery capacity – from 450 mAh onwards up to 1100mAh and more – eGo ecig will satisfy your daily requirements without recharging your battery, unless you are a really heavy smoker. This is not where advantages of eGo ecig end. No way.
Cigarette like e-cigs may look great, but everything there is pre-defined – you have 1-3 batteries: mini, standard and large and not one is stronger than 400mAh. With cigalike, you have cartomizers in 2, 6 or 10 flavors and 3-5 nicotine levels to choose from. That’s basically it for most models (V2 has come up with customizable variation, more about it later).
With eGo and other 2nd generation ecigs, you are fully enabled to customize your experience, combining e-liquid flavors and nicotine levels, as well as PG-VG ratios. You can also try out various clearomizers/cartomizers (standard, low or high resistance) and batteries (variable voltage or classic) endlessly.
It might sound technical but is in fact really simple. Truth is I don’t have a technical bone in my body, so anything more than minimal technical knowledge requirements would simply rule me out.
So, what I am using right now while writing these lines costs me very little and is probably my unique “brand” although it didn’t require any major skills from me to create it.
Now, something about APVs – their initial costs are higher and go up to 300$. That’s not the whole issue – I’ve noticed many passionate APV users complain how much e-liquid they spend daily. Unlike my consumption that never exceeds 3ml and is usually around 1.5-2, so a little 10ml bottle lasts 5-7 days most of the time, they tend to go through this same bottle in 1-2 days.
It’s not just the matter of money. We are positive that vaping is healthier than smoking, but there are still no long-term studies on the effects of PG-VG when consumed the way and with intensity it is in vaping. I suppose there’s no (much) harm there, but until we know for sure, less is better!
Buy eGo e-cig in a kit or in parts. It is advisable to buy
- 2 batteries, so there’s one spare while the other one is being recharged.
- clearomizers are usually sold in 3 or 5 packs, though you can buy just one if you want.
- e-liquid (its cost varies and depends on quantity ordered – in US you can get it from 5$ onwards)
- usb charger for battery (there’s wall charger and car charger if you need them)
These are essentials to get you started.
