About Electronic Cigarettes

As explained in further detail in our History of E Cigarettes post, e cigs, e cigarettes or electronic cigarettes as they’re commonly known, have probably been around for longer than you think.

Their popularity has increased hugely over the last few years with technology, devices and flavours rapidly advancing. With so many different devices now available and so many different terms used to describe them, if you’re new to ecigs you may not know where to start.

You may have heard other vapers mentioning all sorts of mysterious words and phrases such as ‘Sub-Ohm’ ‘PG/VG’ and ‘box mods’ and want to find out more. Or, you may want to just get on with it and find something simple and easy to use. Read on to see all the different devices available and help you find out which e cigarette you should buy.

If there’s any terms or phrases that you don’t understand, check out our E Cig Glossary for definitions. You may also want to read our post explaining How E Cigarettes Work before you continue to give you a better understanding of e cigarette devices.
