Disposable Vs Refillable E-cigs Guide: Which Should I Choose?

Monday 24th February, 2014 | Vaping Guides | 1 Comment

If you're new to e-cigarettes, the sheer amount of choice that is available can be a little daunting. Do you go for a disposable e-cigarette, or a refillable vapour cigarette? If choosing the latter, should you opt for a clearomizer or a cartomizer? Here at Vapouriz, we sell a wide range of both disposable and refillable e-cigarettes: all you need to do is to decide which one is best for you...

The Pros and Cons of Disposable C-Cigarettes

Easily available from supermarkets and petrol stations (Though standard can vary wildly) - the disposable e-cigarette is the starting point for many who are looking to give up smoking and take up vaping. This one piece option acts like a cigarette: puff on it till it is empty, then throw it away.

Disposable e-cigarettes are easy to buy and to dispose of, as well as being easy to use. You don't have to touch the e-liquid, which is ideal for those new to vaping, but the cost is higher than refillable e-cigarettes, and you will not be able to tailor them to your needs. It is a great thing to use to make the transition from tobacco though, with rechargable variants available that provide a mosre cost effective alternative to the disposable variety.


Clearomizer or Cartomizer?

If choosing a vapour cigarette with a refillable tank, you'll need to choose between a clearomizer and a cartomizer. While both of these refillable containers for e-liquid do the same job, a cartomizer uses an absorbent filler material to hold the e-liquid, while a clearomizer holds the liquid in a see-through reservoir.

Cartomizers are generally cheaper than clearomizers, and will last longer. However, they can be a little fiddly at first, and don't have as much flavour or throat hit.

Clearomizers come in a wide range of colours and are easy to fill, and offer a stronger taste than cartomizers. However, you'll be paying more for the privilege.

Whichever option you decide to go for, you will find that e-cigarettes are a great alternative to smoking.

Things to Consider

There are various points to consider when buying an e-cigarette, in addition to the above:

- Disposable e-cigarettes and e-liquids are available in a variety of strengths: choose the one that is right for you.- Do you want a flavoured e-liquid, or a simple tobacco option? Check our range of UK Made e-liquids for Vapourizers.- Is the action of smoking important to you, and so do you need an option that resembles a real cigarette? (If so, a cartomizer is ideal)- Choose an e-cigarette with a charging time that is suitable for your needs - and if you are using it on the go, invest in a USB charger. (We include these ith our starter kits.)- Enjoy! Vaping may be confusing at first, but once you start, you won't want to go back to cigarettes!
