When e-cigs first hit the market there was very little choice, and there wasn’t today’s confusing array of devices and liquid flavours and nicotine strengths.
If you’re now thinking you might want something from the world of e-cigarettes, you will see there's now an enormous choice of e-cigs on the market, as well as lots of different eliquids.
Finding the best e cigarette starter kits to suit your individual preferences may sound like a daunting prospect, however, we aim to make it much easier than it seems.
There are several different electronic cigarette manufacturers, offering a multitude of different products which are continuously being improved or altered for one reason or another. One of the main reasons at the moment is the European TPD regulations (Tobacco Products Directive) which is going to dictate to those of us in European Union some rather restricting rules and regs.

The things that are important to you as a user may be a secondary consideration to someone else. Some vapers prefer expensive high quality flavours and sophisticated devices, while others are looking for something less complex that's more akin to a real cigarette, however, the vast majority of users simply want an e-cigarette that suits their needs and excels in all major areas.
e-Liquid is available in hundreds of different flavours, there are several nicotine strengths, some liquids are thick, some are thinner and there are lots of different brands. Agh!
Avoid the thicker e-liquids at this stage – those with more than 50% VG content (don’t worry all our liquids have their ratios clearly stated on the product page plus our page links will take you to the right pages, but just so you know, start with liquids which are 70% PG, not 70% VG).
e-Liquid ingredients have to meet certain standards, some of which are pharmaceutical grade and others food grade. Increasingly you will see more and more information on eliquid packaging as the TPD comes into force. Click here for our article about eliquid quality and manufacturer testing.
The two main ‘carrier’ ingredients in e-liquid are PG (propylene glycol) and VG (vegetable glycerin). PG gives the throat hit similar to a deep inhalation on a tobacco cigarette and VG is smoother and produces more vapour. Click here for our article about PG and VG.
The value of customer service and support may not be in the forefront of your mind, but when it comes to buying electronic starter kits, choose a company that cares about their products and the service they provide, because ultimately their customers’ satisfaction will be your satisfaction.
