Selecting the Right eCig can be Overwhelming - So Many Sites, So Many Models!
Cartomizers or Tanks
Bottom Fill or Top Fill?
PCC's, Cases, Chargers?
Lots of choices and not enough information to help you decide?
We've created this information page / selection guide to help you
select the eCig that fits your individual needs and preferences
You can even order right from this page!
The first thing you need to know before beginning to make your selection is all eCigs work the same way, there are just many different looks and various levels of quality. Some suppliers decide to sell the cheapest / lowest quality device they can find to turn a larger profit which ends up giving the eCig a bad reputation. At AquaVaporCig.com we carry the highest quality products available on the market and keep our prices competitive with suppliers selling lower quality devices because our business is based on building long term customer relationships due to satisfaction with the product.
Now, lets decide which is best for you
Simple Selection Guide
Detailed Selection Guide
If you prefer a look and size similar to a regular cigarette, you have 2 model / configuration options
Comes standard with cartomizers. (optional upgrade to T4 clearomizer)
This model has Auto and Manual battery options. The manual battery allows you to take control over how much vapor is produced regardless of how hard or soft you drag on the device. The manual operation battery has a push-button that you push when you are ready to take a drag and is preferred by experienced users over the regular auto battery operation.
The auto battery configuration with this model is going to have a smooth loose draw meaning when you take a drag there is very little resistance which results in more air flowing through the device which results in less vapor than with the manual battery.
Cartomizers and Clearomizers for this model are refillable as with all our models
- If you want an option with a longer lasting battery and larger tanks, the eGo Electronic Cigarette kit is our suggestion.
eGo Electronic Cigarette
Kits are customizable to the configuration you prefer.
We stock many different style attachments for the eGo electronic cigarettes from cartomizers, clearomizers, bottom feeding tanks, dual coil tanks, etc.
The accessories for this model are compatible with the ONE 510 model so the cartomizers and chargers are interchangeable.
Cartomizers, and Clearomizers for this model are refillable as with all our models.
This model is only available in a Manual battery option. The manual battery allows you to take control over how much vapor is produced regardless of how hard or soft you drag on the device. The manual operation battery has a push-button that you push when you are ready to take a drag and is preferred by experienced users over the regular auto battery operation.
If you are an experienced eCig user, want a device with a battery that's going to last longer, and don't mind that the device doesn't look similar to a traditional cigarette, this is the model for you.
A lot of our customers purchase the regular 510 ONE model to use when away from home since it's small and looks similar to a traditional cigarette.
If you are ready to take the dive into the advanced vaping world, we have a large selection of mechanical ecig kits, variable voltage ecig kits, rebuildable atomizers and more
Mechanical Devices have no wiring inside so the operation is strictly mechanical meaning less chance for failure of electrical components.
Variable Voltage Devices allow you to adjust the voltage on the device to increase or decrease the amount of vapor produced.
Rebuildable Atomizers and Dripping Atomizers allow you to build your own atomizer to meet your own vaping preferences.
Warning: For experienced vapers only with knowledge of electronics and Multi-Meters
Other Options to Decide On
Battery, PCC, and Case Options
Auto Battery This is the preferred option by most of our customers because all you have to do is puff on it like a regular cigarette to produce vapor.
Manual Battery The manual battery has a push button that must be pushed to activate the device and produce vapor. This is preferred by more experienced users because they have more control over how soft or hard they puff. It also allows them to puff on the device without pushing the button just to give them the motion sensation of smoking.
Pass-through Batteries The PRO model and the 510 ONE model have an option of a pass-through which allows the device to receive power directly from the computer without having to run down your eCig battery charge.
PCC (Portable Charging Case) - If you are on the go a lot (traveling, shopping, sports, etc) where you will not have access to a power source you should invest in a PCC. The PCC looks like a regular cigarette pack and holds your cartridges as well as charges your batteries 10 - 12 times while your away from a power source. When you get home you plug the PCC into a power source to recharge its internal battery then its ready for your next trip.
Carrying Case Having a carrying case gives you a convenient way to store, protect, and carry your device. The case will hold 2 batteries, atomizer, and spare cartridges so you always know exactly where they are. No searching through your pockets or purse looking for that spare battery you knew you put in there.
Choosing Cartridge or Liquid Strength
Should you Refill Cartomizers?
Below is a glossary to give you a better understanding of all the products mentioned on our site and across the eCigarette community.
Battery: Rechargeable lithium battery used to power Electronic Cigarettes. This is the part of the eCigarette that mimics the tobacco filled part of a traditional cigarette. eCig batteries have an LED indicator (various colors) on the tip that mimic the fire on a traditional cigarette.
Auto Battery: Auto batteries are operated just by taking a drag like you would on a traditional cigarette. When a drag is taken the battery is activated and the liquid in the cartridge is turned into vapor.
Manual and/or Push-button Battery: Manual batteries are operated by pushing a small button located on the battery tube. When the button is pressed the battery is activated and the liquid in the cartridge is turned into vapor.
Atomizer: Part of the eCig that atomizers the liquid to create the vapor. Atomizers screw into the battery and a cartridge containing the liquid inserts onto the atomizer. 3 piece (Battery, Atomizer, and Cartridge) design eCigs have an atomizer, 2 piece design eCigs do not have a separate atomizer
Cartridge: Part of the eCig that contains the flavored liquid used to create vapor. This is the part of the eCigarette that mimics the filter part of a traditional cigarette. All cartridges can be refilled with eLiquid and its recommended they be replaced after 10 refills.
Cartomizer: Part of the eCig that contains the flavored liquid used to create vapor and a built in atomizer. A cartomizer combines the atomizer and cartridge into one piece which makes the eCig a 2 piece (Battery and Cartomizer) design. This is the part of the eCigarette that mimics the filter part of a traditional cigarette. All cartomizers can be refilled with eLiquid and its recommended they be replaced after 10 refills. Cartomizers were invented as a replacement for the separate atomizers and cartridges but some consumers still prefer the 3 piece design so most suppliers offer both configurations.
Tank Cartridges: Clear plastic cartridge that is filled with liquid to create vapor. Tank cartridges have no cotton filler, they just hold liquid and require an atomizer to create the vapor. The tank cartridge was invented to allow you to see how much liquid is left in the cartridge and to eliminate the need for cotton in the cartridge. These are great designs and experienced vapers love them. These are available for our eGo and 510 models.
Tank Atomizer: Atomizers used with tank cartridges. These atomizers have a small needle like port that punctures the tank cartridges to allow liquid to flow into the atomizer for vapor to be produced.
PCC: This is a Portable Charging Case that is the same size and shape as a traditional pack of cigarettes and is used to store and charge your eCigarette batteries while you're on the go. PCC cases also hold 5 cartridges or cartomizers, an extra battery and have an LED indicator to let you know the charging progress of you eCig batteries as well as the charge left in the PCC itself. The PCC has an internal battery that will charge your eCig batteries up to 10 times before needing recharged. To recharge them you just plug them up to a USB connector to your computer or USB wall adapter and when the light turns green you're ready to go. Our PCCs have a green indicator light to let you know when your battery is charged. While the battery is charging the light will be red and when it completes the light turns green. They are simple to use, screw your battery in, push the charging button and when the light turns from red to green the battery is ready to use. This is a great accessory for when you're away from home shopping, at work, restaurants, bars, etc
Smart PCC: This means the PCC has an LCD display to show you the charging progress, the PCC can be charged while its charging batteries, and your batteries can be left on the charger after they are fully charged because the PCC turns itself off when the battery is charged.
eLiquid: Liquid used to refill cartridges, cartomizers, and tanks. Liquid is available in many different flavors and strengths of nicotine and also comes with just the flavor without the nicotine. All our cartridges, cartomizers and tanks are refillable and using the liquid to refill cartridges is 50% cheaper than using prefilled cartridges. Prefilled cartridges can be refilled with the same or different flavor liquid. When filling with a different flavor it normally takes 20 - 40 puffs to get the old flavor out of the cartridge.
Pass-Through: This is a device that looks like an eCig battery but it has a USB cord that connects to your computer as a power source for creating vapor. These are great if you are in front of your computer a lot and don't want to drain the power from your normal batteries. The computer provides a power source to the atomizer so as long as its plugged up it works.
2 Piece Design: This term is used to describe eCigarettes that use a battery and a cartomizer. The cartomizer is an atomizer and cartridge built together as one piece. The one piece unit contains the atomization device as well as the liquid and it screws onto the eCig battery. When the battery is activated the cartomizer creates vapor. Cartomizers were invented as a replacement for the separate atomizers and cartridges but some consumers still prefer the 3 piece design so most suppliers offer both configurations.
3 Piece Design: This term is used to describe eCigarettes that use a battery, atomizer, and cartridge making up 3 pieces. The atomizer screws onto the battery and the cartridge containing the liquid slides onto the atomizer. When the battery is activated the atomizer creates vapor from the liquid in the cartridge. This is the original design of the eCig and its still very popular among consumers.
USB Charger: Charger that the eCig battery plugs into to charge the battery. USB chargers can be connected to your computer USB port, a USB car charger, and/or a USB wall charger adapter. Most chargers have a light that when plugged up is green or blue, when the eCig battery is screwed in and charging begins the light will turn red, when the battery is charged the light will turn back green or blue. Typically charging times range from 45 minutes for regular eCigs and up to 2 hours from large capacity batteries like come with the eGo.
Wall Charger Adapter: AC plug that plugs into a wall outlet and has a USB port for plugging in the USB eCig charger. Most of these have a red indicator light that just lets you know there is power to the adapter. The light does not change when you are charging a battery. The light on the USB charger lets you know when your battery is charged.
