Best Of E-Cig Aspects
Those are our top picks overall, and here are the best of the different aspects of the electronic cigarettes listed, to help you fine tune:
- Best Price for Cartridge Refills – V2 Cigs ($9.95 for 5 cartridges)
- Cheapest Starter Kit – Bull Smoke hands down with $29.95 for a starter kit with 2 batteries and 10 cartridges. (Comparatively, as pricing is a top priority for many, V2 and South Beach kits both cost $59.95 for the same components, the Green Smoke kit is $59.97 with 5 cartridges, 1 battery and one cig that plugs into a USB, and the Halo G6 is $44.99 with 2 batteries and 5 cartridges).
- Best Flavor – V2 Cigs Red
- Best Battery – Mini manual Halo Battery (charges in like an hour, and lasts much longer than other proportionately sized batteries).
- Longest Lasting Battery – For standard sized e cigs this is close, the long batteries from South Beach, Bull Smoke and V2, and the standard Green Smoke are all good for a number of hours. The longest lasting most powerful short battery is the manual 65mm Halo. If you want an upgraded battery that lasts for hours and aren’t concerned with the size, check out the Halo Triton.
- Coolest Accessory – South Beach Smoke Portable Charging Case with LED lights
- Sexiest Aesthetics – Halo
- Coolest Color Ever – If aesthetics will clinch the deal for you, check out the Halo Iridescence Triton Battery - pictured to the right ——->
- Best Disposable – V2
- Thickest Vapor – Green Smoke
- Most Vapor Volume – Standard V2 cartridges
- Longest Lasting Cartridges – Green Smoke
- Cheapest To Maintain – V2 and Halo (since they stock refill liquid which is a nice savings).
- Most Accessories and Options – V2 – check out their super sexy carrying cases, charging cases, battery color options, and the Ultimate Kit has all the bells and whistles.
- Biggest Throat Hit – Go for high nicotine – 1.8% or 2.4% (18mg and 24mg respectively), all 5 listed above have nice throat hits, V2′s 18mg flavors seem to smack the back of your throat just a bit more than the others at 18mg, and even some other higher strength ones.

Electronic Cigarette Brands and Reviews Here at klks.com:
This isn’t too complicated.. There are quite a few good e cigarettes out there, and with a couple of the top ones, you can’t really go wrong. That being said, as you can see above, we do have our favorites, and explain why in our review pages (see below).
There are a number of brands that create an excellent product line, with the super competitive market that electronic cigarettes have become. Each brand does have a distinct flavor, and so it may be very worth your time to try more than one, as you may try one that is good enough, and another may seal the deal, and just hit that spot.
When you factor in the cost savings, it’s pretty much a no brainer, nevermind some of the nice aspects of vaping cigarettes as opposed to tobacco burning cigarettes, with ash and the smell of cigarettes being two big factors.
For our reviews below, we looked for the top rated brands by consumers, and to see how they are against each other and created our favorites on this page.
