E-cigs or electric cigarettes have grown steadily in popularity for years. Millions have made the switch from traditional, carcinogenic tobacco cigarettes to smokeless, water vapor emitting e-cigs, which can be used in places where normal cigarettes have long been banned. Celebrities like Johnny Depp, Katherine Heigl, Lindsey Lohan, and Leonardo DiCaprio have all made the transition. Often the change begins with the purchase of a fully functional, refillable, and rechargeable e-cig starter kit.
The items provided in an e-cig starter kit will vary somewhat by manufacturer. However, nearly every kit will contain a refillable, rechargeable electronic cigarette. Most kits will also contain a few starter cartridges, as well as a charging device of some sort. For some electronic cigarette starter kits the charging device may be a USB cord, for others it may be a set of small, rechargeable batteries and the appropriate corresponding device.
E-cig starter kits are referred to as such because they provide a semi-permanent kit for switching to e-cigs. They differ from disposables in that they may be refilled and recharged, multiple times before needing to be replaced. Disposable e-cigs and cigars come with a set charge and cartridge, often comparable to a pack or even a carton of cigarettes. However, once the user has puffed the given amount of times, these cigarettes must be disposed of, as they are of no further use.
E-cig starter kits are often several times more expensive than a single disposable e-cig or two in terms of upfront costs. To put things in perspective, the total price of a starter kit is roughly around the same as the cost of a carton of traditional cigarettes. A single use e-cig, on the other hand, is comparable in price to an expensive pack of traditional cigarettes. However, the contents of an e-starter kit will provide far more puffs than a carton of tobacco cigs. Additionally, the price of purchasing refill cartridges is nominal in comparison to the price of tobacco cigarettes.
Another benefit of purchasing a starter kit is that most e-cig companies offer cartridges in multiple flavors and potency levels. With a refillable starter kit, consumers are free to experiment with as many variations as they desire. Flavor options often include traditional tastes like menthol, tobacco, and mint as well as more exotic tastes like vanilla, caramel, cappuccino, and strawberry. Often, cartridge options are far greater than what is available in disposable. Furthermore, there is no commitment. If you try a certain flavor or potency of nicotine and decide it is not for you, simply try a new cartridge next time. With a reusable starter kit the level of experimentation is limitless.
E-cig starter kits are by far the most versatile and economical option for transitioning to the world of clean, smokeless tobacco. Smokers who give up traditional cigarettes in lieu of safer, cleaner, and more socially accepted e-cigs are almost, always happy with the decision and surprised with the likeness to traditional cigarettes.
