Why Choose a Cigarette Style E-Cigarette?
Cigarette style e-cigarettes are an excellent choice for anyone who is new to vaping. They are incredibly easy to use and their design replicates a traditional tobacco cigarette. This means that they are often the preferred choice of e-cigarette device for beginner vapers.
There are many different types of e-cigarette available but cigarette style e-cigs are one of the most popular designs for those looking for an authentic vaping experience.
How do Cigarette Style E-Cigarettes Work?
These types of e-cig feature a rechargeable battery with replaceable ‘refills‘. These refills, sometimes known as cartridges or cartomisers, offer the equivalent of approximately 25 cigarettes per refill and are designed to be used until the flavour begins to deteriorate. They can then simply be unscrewed, disposed of and replaced with a new refill.
The refill screws on to the battery and the device is then ready to use. Simply inhale on the refill end of the battery to produce the vapour. The end of the battery contains an LED which lights up when the e-cigarette is inhaled, replicating the glowing end of a cigarette. The battery is charged via USB; this screws onto the end of the battery and can be plugged into a USB port or into a mains adapter with a maximum output of 1 amp.

How to Choose an E-Cigarette or Vape Kit
When looking for an e-cigarette starter kit, you will want to consider the following to help you narrow down the options:
Do you want a small, inconspicuous device?
If the answer is yes, we recommend a cigarette style e-cigarette (or ‘cigalike’), or a pod device.
Do you want a wide range of flavour options or would you prefer to stick with traditional tobacco or menthol flavours?
Are you looking for an affordable option or a device that offers more features?
Cigarette style e-cigs are one of the most affordable options available. If you like the idea of a more traditional vape, then these devices should be well-suited to you.
Many box kits and vape pens have extra features such as adjustable airflow, adjustable power output and larger capacity batteries. If these features appeal, you may want to consider a more advanced vape kit.
