We ranked V2 Cigs as our favorite e-cigarette brand. If flavor is most important to you, V2 is a great choice. You can get regular tobacco flavors or more exciting flavors like strawberry and chocolate. You may want to create your own blends and explore different flavors to see which ones you love the best. Have a look at all of their available flavors here. Many vapers also enjoy this brand because these electronic cigarettes produce a lot of vapor. This is important for many vapers because the more rich vapor an electronic cigarette, the more satisfaction a vaper will have with a smoking experience. V2 is also known for its advanced technology, and the batteries on these electronic cigarettes last a lot longer than other brands. You can browse accessories, batteries, and other products from V2 Cigs here. If you want to learn more about this brand, read our detailed V2 Cigs review.
Ever since the conception of the infamous “e-cig”, V2 has been a major player in the marketplace. This is no mistake! They know what they’re doing, and that’s why they stay on top. V2 has been adapting to the market since day one, starting first with disposable e-cigs and adapting to new and improved, rechargeable e-cigs, also coming with a portable charger so you can stay fully charged on the go.
V2 has incredible juice flavors as well! Check them out:
- Red Tobacco
- Green Tea Menthol
… The list goes on and on, if you think your mouth is watering looking at these flavors (like mine), just wait till you taste these flavors in your new V2 e-cig!
Our second favorite brand is VaporFi.
One thing in particular that sets VaporFi away from the competition is its “custom e-liquids” blending center (sounds pretty cool, right?). The first thing you do is pick the strength of your e-liquid, this is the amount of nicotine you want to vape. Next, you choose your flavors, VaporFi allows you to mix and match up to three flavors from their MASSIVE list of delicious e-liquids. Lastly, VaporFi blends everything together (freshly blended, never pre-packaged) and ships it out to you.
VaporFi also offers a 100% money back guarantee! Doesn’t come much better than that! So let’s say you buy a VaporFi product, you try the product and you’re not satisfied. Perfectly OK! You just have to ship the product back and they will give you a refund, no questions asked.

WHY: There is a very simple explanation for why people still use disposable e-cigs… CONVENIENCE: these disposable e-cigs are very accessible, simply drive down to the gas station around the corner and pick one up. It’s that easy! PRICE: these types of e-cigs are generally the cheapest option, but remember, “you get what you pay for.” Keep that in mind if you plan on purchasing these types of e-cig’s. SIMPLICITY: Less mess could be another reason why people use these over other e-cigs. For instance, with a disposable e-cig, you don’t have to deal with all that sticky refilling and dropping pieces of your e-cig on the floor, just throw the disposable e-cig away and grab another one.
WHO: Generally, there are two main groups of people that utilize disposable e-cigs: vapers that are new to vaping, and not willing to shell out the extra money it may cost for a refillable e-cig. The other group are people that are always on the move and looking for convenience (maybe doesn’t have time to be refilling e-juice, etc.).
WHICH: Most top e-cig brands produce a line of disposable models, many of which we have reviewed here on our site, but, the brands that surpass the rest are South Beach Smoke, V2 Cigs and Green Smoke. If you’re interested in learning more about each one of these brands, click the links to view the full reviews.
We’ve reviewed many brands with their own disposable electronic cigarettes. Ultimately, though, we have to recommend South Beach Smoke, V2 Cigs and Green Smoke if you are looking for disposable e-cigs because they are the easiest and cheapest to buy. They also offer singles while most brand sell packs of four or five at a time.
WHAT: Large e-cig brands put together “starter packages” to ensure new vapers get everything they need to start vaping. Generally, these starter kits come with the e-cig unit, a battery for the e-cig, a charging station and an e-liquid to get you started. For a beginner, starter kits are a great option; these kits are often priced very competitively and tailored to any budget.
WHY: The starter kits are an “all in one” solution for someone new to the “vaping game”. Making the switch from tobacco cigarettes to an e-cigarettes is a difficult transition, starter kits can ease you into making the switch. When attempting to quit conventional cigarettes, many things can “throw” you back into the addiction; triggers are everywhere. Sometimes when you’re trying to kick a nasty habit (such as smoking tobacco), you need to ease into something, that’s what e-cigarette starter kicks allow you to do.
WHO:These kits (like previous described) are perfect for someone who is new to vaping, in particular, a person attempting to quit smoking and move to e-cigarettes. They are “all inclusive” so (being a new vapor) you won’t forget any key components that would prevent you from getting started.
WHICH: Almost every brand of e-cigarettes has a nice starter kit. We’ve covered some of the here, including V2, Green Smoke, VaporFi™, Halo, and EverSmoke. Feel free to click through to learn more about each and find out which one suits your needs the best.
If you are using (or planning to use) a refillable e-cig, maintenance will be very important to ensure that you get those big clouds and huge hits off your e-cig that you will enjoy with the e-cigs reviewed on our site (no maintenance is required for disposable e-cigs). You don’t have to perform maintenance on your e-cig all the time, but periodically, you should take the e-cig apart and perform some basic maintenance. With our article “Proper Maintenance of e-Cigarettes”, we explain how to properly care for your cartridge, atomizer, mouthpiece, charger and more. Make sure to check the article out to preserve the life of your electronic cigarette.
Mods and Advanced Equipment
Disposable e-cigarettes are a great platform to start, but what if you want to start vaping with the big boys? You will need to update your e-cigarette to take it to the next level. Mods, tanks, APVs (advanced personal vaporizers) and variable voltage batteries; the upgrade are never ending, for the “vaping enthusiast” upgrading is a way of life. Because of the plethora of upgrades and advancements in vaping technology, we constantly update and review products to keep you up to date. Do you think you’re ready to take your “vaping game” to the next level? Take a look at our Advanced e-Cigarette Mods page and Vapor Tank Systems page to find out for sure.
Available Flavors and Options
One of the largest advantages e-cigarettes have over conventional tobacco cigarettes is the flavor selection. For instance, you no longer have to decide between menthol cigarettes and regular cigarettes, now (with e-cigarettes) you can have exotic flavors like “Dragon fruit”, or if you are more comfortable with traditional tobacco flavors, they are also available.
Let’s take a look at some of the flavors offered by the “top” companies:
. For instance:
- MadVapes offers black raspberry, caramel popcorn, champagne, cherries and cream, coffee cake, and Lucky 7, among its many flavors.
- Mount Baker Vapor also has a good selection of unique flavors, such as Butterscotch, Cinnamon Roll, Ecto Cooler, Extreme Ice, Hawk Sauce, Moo Juice, Pineapple Upside Down, Thug Juice, and lots more.
- VaporFi won’t back down when it comes to flavor ingenuity. It offers Blueberry Cheesecake, Caribbean Escape, Fruity Fun Cereal, Lemon Apple Candy Crush, Mint Julep, Summer Freshness, Tart N’ Sweet, The Godfather, Tobaccolicious, and a lot of novel blends you won’t find elsewhere.
- V2 Cigs is last in this list of unique flavors, but certainly not least. Their offerings range from classics and favorites (menthol, mint tea, peppermint) to the boldest blends out there (grape, V2 cola, cherry, and more). They also have flavor-mimics of popular cigarette brands: Red tastes like Marlboro cigarettes, Sahara tastes like Camel cigarettes, and Congress tastes like Parliament cigarettes.

Our team has an extensive understanding of e-cigarette brands and the e-cigarette industry in general. We understand that vapers want a great flavor, a long-lasting battery, a lot of vapor to create an authentic smoking experience, and more! Our comprehensive views will help you to find the e-cigarette brand that has exactly what you need. Keep reading for more information on which brand has the best of the following features:
The Most Powerful Battery
A lot of brands have long-lasting batteries, and so this category was not easy to narrow down. Many of these brands have been working diligently on improving battery life. At the end of the day, one brand has the best battery: South Beach Smoke.
The SuperMAX battery is South Beach Smoke’s best battery. Many of the fans of this brand are particularly fans of this batter. It uses the KR808D, operates on 4.2 volts and is one of the most advanced models today. This amount of power gives vapers a nice draw with thick vapor for a great smoking experience. The standard and extended capacity batteries last up to 250 and 400 puffs per charge cycle, respectively. Even for heavy smokers, the SuperMAX can last up to four hours. One battery charge will last an entire day for light and casual vapers.
Learn more about the revolutionary SuperMAX battery as well as South Beach Smoke in general in our full review for the brand.
The Best Flavors
It’s difficult to say which brand has the best flavors because different people want different things. If you are seeking a wide variety of flavors, Halo might be a good e-cigarette to try out. MadVapes also has over 150 flavors providing vapers with a wide variety. They are focused on giving you different options. Both VaporFi and Mount Baker Vapor do a pretty good job for tank and mod juices.
Another great brand for flavor is V2 Cigs. V2 Cigs uses a mixture of PG, VG, water and flavorings. This brand is focused on providing products that have proven to be 100% safe, which is why it tests its e-liquids and publicly publishes the results. This brand has different nicotine levels and flavors as well.
If you are confused about which flavor or which level of nicotine might be best for you, have a look at one of our guides.
The Richest Vapor
For some vapers, the vapor is actually more important than the flavor. For others, it’s at least equally as important. Many vapers purchase the electronic cigarettes that contain the most vapor so that they can have more satisfying smoking experiences. The winner of this category is easily Green Smoke.
This brand has the best vapor out there because Green Smoke uses its trademark technologies, Flavor Shield and Sensor Safe. The first produces a high volume of vapor without compromising the quality of the flavor, while the latter includes a patented design that prevents any damage to the battery, both of which lead to a long-lasting, satisfying vaping experience. Additionally, the batteries are tested so that they only produce high quality airflow and the cartomizers are tested to ensure quality and consistency in the vapor production.
Using a blend of nicotine, flavors, PG and VG, Green Smoke produces a vapor that is unique from traditional tobacco smoke. Instead of puffing out foul smelling smoke that sticks to clothes and hair, you get a fresh, clean and tasty vapor without any of the disgusting odors. You can vape either indoors or outdoors, and you don’t have to worry about your teeth turning yellow or secondhand smoke.
