There isn’t anything wrong with using a mini cig from first to last: starting here and staying with that low-tech, cigarette-like device. A lot of vapers, however, will start with an eGo and most vapers upgrade to this level or better after using a mini cig. The best examples of eGo e cigs cost a similar amount, are sold as starter kits, and supply many hours of stress-free vaping.
Basics of the Mini Cig Pen
First of all, a new or barely-experienced vaper found that the mini cig was simple to use. It operated automatically (unless the vaper chose a manual device) and did not require refilling. He re-charged his device and started vaping, but couldn’t expect a lot of vaping for each recharge. The average is around 3 to 4 hours and vapor production is minimal.
Basics of the Best Vape Pens
With an eGo, there is a little more to it than that, but not much. Firstly, these are all button-operated. Just one press activates the heating process which gives you vapor. A small upgrade is to buy the Variable Voltage option with a dial that lets you adjust between 3.7 and 4.2 volts.
Buttons don’t change much from company to company. Certain buttons are raised and others are flush with the battery. An eGo pen is also a battery: you don’t remove a cell from inside the pen.
Clearomizers for Vape Pens
Each eGo pen requires a clearomizer too and this has to be refilled with e juice. No longer do you have the option of adding a pre-filled clearomizer, but it takes little time to become used to the refilling system. Pick out an inexpensive e juice with lots of propylene glycol which will not clog the single coil build of a disposable clearomizer or a clearomizer with replaceable atomizer heads. Resistance is usually between 1.5 and 2.2 ohms.
Most of these products are sold as starter kits which contain a battery or two batteries, at least one tank, a USB charger, and usually an AC wall adapter. Some companies add e juice to the package and there might be a case included too. Companies with eGo starter kits include Vaporfi, Halo, Volcano, and Apollo.
