Use the right E-cig accessories for the very best electronic cigarette experience.

Let's get one thing clear: Different people use different electronic cigarettes for different reasons. For the most part, this should be self-explanation. In fact, it should be so obvious that it has to be common sense. 


Unfortunately, you and I both know that common sense is not all that common in, of all places, the internet. People think that when you buy a certain type of ecig or electronic cigarette device, your reasons for going with a particular brand or model is the same as theirs. 


The truth is different people come to different conclusions because they have different needs. Some people are looking for that “cool factor.” They just want to look cool. Let me tell you. If you want to make a statement and if you want to turn a lot of heads, one of the best ways to do that is to blow a lot of vapor out of your electronic cigarette device. 


It looks good. It definitely sends the message that you are in the vicinity. People can't help but pay attention. In fact, when you do that, you demand attention. There's something cool about that. It all depends on how you play it off. You can be very relaxed and chill about it, which communicates a tremendous amount of deep personal confidence. 


People also buy these products for stress relief. Let's face it. We are all stressed out. We are all under tremendous pressure. We have to deal with all sorts of deadlines. There's just so many things popping off in different parts of our life. We want to kick back and chill and do something that really takes the edge off.


Enjoying a nice ecig and drawing from that device can definitely go a long way as far as personal stress relief goes. Other people are drawn to different brands of electronic cigarettes due to their efficiency. I don't know about you. But when you smoke cigarettes, you're actually paying a very high price for nicotine. On a gram per gram, buzz per buzz basis, nothing comes close to ecigs when it involves processing tobacco so you can enjoy nicotine.


When you smoke traditional cigarettes, I'm talking about cigarettes that involve burning, you're not only releasing a lot of carbon in the air, but you're also lining the very sensitive innermost parts of your lungs with tar. 


If you don't know what I'm talking about, look at the asphalt that you drive on. That's tar. That substance has the exact same chemical composition and shape of the stuff that ends up in the lining of your lungs. Why do you think a lot of people develop lung cancer?


This is not brain surgery, folks. This is pretty straightforward. If you're looking for maximum efficiency when it comes to ingesting nicotine, you can skip the tar thanks to e-cigarettes. 


Other people prefer certain brands or models because of their compact design. The lighter, the better. The more portable, the better. I really can't argue with that logic because at the end of the day, if you want a nice, quick nicotine buzz, you want to do it quickly, smoothly, and efficiently. 


You don't want to make a grand production out of it. You don't want to turn it into some sort of intricate ritual for the world to see. While you can produce quite a bit of exhaust, that's up to you. It all boils down to the specific device that you use. 


Finally, a lot of people switch to electronic cigarettes as a halfway step. I'm talking about that halfway point between smoking three packs a day with traditional cigarettes and eventually going cold turkey. We all know about the dangers of smoking. This is pretty basic science. 


The bad news is that it's one thing for people to wrap their minds around the bad health effects of smoking and it's another matter entirely to totally give up on nicotine. When you adopt an ecig lifestyle, you're going for that halfway point. It's a great and happy compromise between going cold turkey and refusing to quit smoking at all.




Brands are important


Now that you have a clear idea of the key factors that people deal with and process when making brand choices, it's also a good idea to clearly identify ecig brands that you can choose from. The interesting thing about these brands is that if you think that you have reached the end of the list and you have seen everything, another brand comes to the scene and demands your attention.


It's as if the list of brands in the electronic cigarette and vaporizer market continues to get longer and longer. It's not a big surprise why this is the case. There's nothing shocking about it. This is a very lucrative sunrise market. It's still beginning.


You may be thinking that electronic cigarettes have been around for at least 10 years. Well, think again. When it comes to commercial appeal and market acceptance. There's still a tremendous amount of market penetration to achieve.


This is no surprise that you have started seeing a long list of very interesting brands. These brands not only differ from each other in terms of product quality and design, but they differ in terms of their factories, their after sales service as well as their overall product presentation, promotion, and positioning.


Pay close attention to brands like Volcano, Blue, Hoosier, Logic, Logic Pro, V2, Aspire, Mark 10, Ego, and Halo Ecigs. As I said, the list keeps getting longer as more and more brands distinguish themselves from the competition.


You may be thinking to yourself that if you've seen one brand, you've pretty much seen them all. After all, they all have budgets. They all make a big deal about the fact that they're somehow different. But at the end of the day, since they all produce the same devices that help you do the same thing, what's the big deal? Can you really tell?


Why should you go with the brand instead of some sort of no-name contraption imported directly from mainland China? Good question. Solid brands mean solid business. That's the simplest way I can express the reality behind brands. 


You have to remember that a brand can only become a brand if it has some sort of track record. Nobody can come up with some sort of icon or logo and all of a sudden, call its product a brand. People are going to laugh at you. At the very least, they're going to scratch their heads because they think that you don't know what you're talking about.


They can't make heads or tails about your product because there's nothing to compare it to. You don't have a track record. You haven't really proven yourself in the marketplace. Solid brands rise above the competition because they have a reputation. 


They're able to produce a certain level of value consistently over an extended period of time. Now you may be thinking that that is a fairly shallow achievement. Well, think again. You may not be a very big fan of Mcdonald's, but you have to respect the fact that regardless of the particular branch you walk into, the quality is the same.


That's right. If I walk into a restaurant with golden arches in Milan, Italy, I can rest assured that the quality will be at the same level as if I have walked into a Mcdonald's branch in Manila. The same goes for eating at Tokyo one day and enjoying chicken McNuggets in Turin, Italy, the next day. 


It all boils down to a predictable level of quality. That is how you build a solid reputation because to be able to deliver a certain level of quality day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, require organizational discipline and a commitment to delivering a certain level of value.


It doesn't really matter whether you think Mcdonald's is trash or their quality is nothing to write home about. The fact that you can rest assured and draw a tremendous amount of confidence from a certain level of quality goes a long way because most other businesses are not like that. 


Applying this analysis to electronic cigarettes, you can see why solid brands mean solid business. They are tried and proven. They have been tested by the market for several years. If there was any issue regarding their quality or their ability to deliver value to the lives of people who have trusted their brand, you would've heard about it.



The reality: Finding the right brand is just the first step


I don't mean to pump you up at this point. I don't mean to give you the impression that you just need to find a solid brand and you can pretty much safely stop thinking. It doesn't work that way. It turns out that finding the right brand is just the first step. It opens the door. 


You get your foot in the door. But you still have to take steps inside. You still have to take the initiative. You still have to roll up your sleeves and to make sure that you are making a truly informed decision. How do you go about doing this?


First, you need to take your device to the next level by investing in the right accessories and ecig mods. You may be thinking that once you buy a particular electronic cigarette, you are set. After all, it's a compact device with all its different moving parts all in one piece. What's there to think about?


Are you kind of obsessing if you are looking for the very best accessories or the best mods? Not really. If you really want to get the best experience from that device, then you need to step up. You need to understand that the stock accessories and modifications that it comes with give you a standard experience.


In other words, you get a basic level of quality. I'm not saying that's necessarily bad. But just like with home desktop computers, if you want the very best gaming experience, then you have to get your mainboard from one manufacturer, your hard drive from another, your monitor from a specific vendor.


This way, you get best of a breed. You can rest assured by using that same buying strategy that all the different parts that make up your electronic cigarette will be top of the line. This leads to a higher chance that every time you use that electronic cigarette, you get the experience that you're looking for.


I'm not just talking about quality wise. I'm also talking about efficiency and quantity of nicotine.



Each component does its part in maximizing the value you get



Please understand that when you use ecig juices and you're letting out water vapor, a lot of things are in play. You have to have the right type, right ecig tanks, right ecig juice, and definitely the right ecig batteries. 


You may be thinking that the device is worth more than the sum of its parts. You are absolutely correct. But this does not in any way, shape or form free you from the responsibility of picking the right parts in the first place. Otherwise, you're just going to have a mediocre electronic cigarette experience.



High-quality mods help prevent disaster


I don't know about you, but every time I see sensationalistic online newspaper headlines on my Facebook timeline, I roll my eyes. After all, how many times can you play up an unfortunate disaster where an ecig explodes? It's like beating a dead horse.


The only thing more annoying are those news highlights that play up ecig popcorn lung conditions. We know that these things happen. But we also know that planes do crash and cars slam into walls. But you don't see them grabbing headlines. 


Instead, you get the wrong impression about the safety of electronic cigarettes. Considering the huge amount of devices out there currently on the market on a moment by moment basis, it really is a testimony to the overall safety of these devices that you don't hear about ecigs explosions all day, every day. 


The truth is there's just so much news fixating on FDA ecig issues or other “hot topics” in the industry. You have to set your mind right. Please understand that with the right high-quality mods, you can prevent disaster with your electronic cigarettes no matter how remote those accidents may be.


The bottom line is with the right information, and I'm talking about the right ecig reviews, you should be able to make a truly informed decision. Of course, you shouldn't believe everything you read online. If anything, you should filter these materials through your personal experience.


They have to make sense as far as your own personal usage of electronic cigarettes go. If you keep looking at different reviews that play up a particular brand of ecig juice, that should pique your curiosity. However, you should also be responsible. You should get to the bottom of the matter and see if the kind of ecig juice or other accessories that they are promoting actually fit your particular personal preference. 


That's how you play the game the right way.

How to pick among the many different brands of electronic cigarettes on the market

Electronic cigarette brands keep multiplying. It’s as if there was a hard summer rain at your backyard and all of a sudden, you start seeing mushrooms all over the place. It’s very easy to see why this is happening. 


Electronic cigarette brands are popping up all over the place because there is big money to be made in the market. It doesn’t get any simpler than that. That is the stone cold truth. If the market wasn’t as lucrative and profitable as it is, there probably would still be several brands. But they won’t be as plentiful as today. 


It’s gotten so crazy that it seems like there are new ecig brands being launched every single week. Whether you’re into Maxx electronic cigarettes, Juul, Tesla, Jack, White Cloud electronic cigarettes, Smoke, Halo, Volcano, Blue, Hoosier, Logic, Logic Pro, V2 electronic cigarettes, Aspire, Mark 10, or Ego, please understand that the brand list continues to get longer and longer.


You may be thinking this is quite a mouthful of brands to stay on top of. You would be absolutely correct. The good news is if you know what you’re looking for, you don’t have to worry about a thing when it comes to brand confusion. 


Once you are clear as to what kind of features you would personally demand from a particular electronic cigarette brand, it becomes almost impossible for you to get thrown off track. If you are going through some sort of catalog that lists Ego, Mark 10, Aspire, Logic, Smoke, Tesla, so on and so forth, it’s very easy to just blank out.


It’s as if you’re reading and your eyes glaze over and you draw a blank. Believe it or not, a lot of Americans like to talk a big game when it comes to freedom of choice. They keep saying the more selections they have to choose from, the higher the chance that they would find the very best product. 


It seems like everybody likes to repeat this as some sort of socially acceptable mantra. At the back of their heads, I’m sure they think that this is what other people expect them to say. But deep down inside, most people want freedom from choice instead of freedom of choice. 


Everybody knows this is true. But most people simply don’t want to admit this because we live in a society that prizes individuality and marching to the beat of your own drummer. We’re supposed to find our own way. We’re supposed to be independent, freedom-loving people and this has produced this myth of independence. 


But if you ask people how they chose the brands of the products they consume on a regular basis, chances are they just picked it up from the people around them. In other words, they confirmed to other people’s taste.


This is not rare. This happens all the time because, given the tremendous amount of noise and marketing static that you get, it’s very easy to feel that you’re sinking in a sea of marketing messages. You really don’t know which way is up. It’s really hard to get out from under slick marketing. So, what do you do?


You look at what your friends prefer and you use that as a starting point. A lot of people would start and end there. But ideally, you should use it as a starting point. At least it gives you someplace to start. You’re not exactly beginning with absolutely zero.


This I why brands keep popping out. The more selection there is out there, the higher the chance that people just getting into the market or transitioning from one brand to the next, can pick their brand. The market is big enough to accommodate such segmentation.


This might seem like a good thing. It might even seem like the kind of thing that would eventually sort itself out. Well, here’s the problem. As new brands keep rolling out on an almost weekly basis, ecig reviews keep popping up all over the place. 


I wish I could tell you that these resources truly help you make an informed decision. Unfortunately, for me to say that to you, I would be flat out lying. It’s an open secret that the vast majority of all kinds of online product reviews are self-serving if not outright blatant.


Their interest is not to help you find the very best product to fit your particular needs and circumstances. In many cases, that’s the furthest thing from the mind of the reviewer. Instead, that person’s goal is to get to separate you from your hard earned money.


In other words, it’s all about sales. Understand how this works. You have to go into this process with the right perspective. You have to be realistic. This is why with the right mental filter, you can quickly see that ecig reviews can be both confusing and unhelpful. 


 A lot of them suffer from conflicts of interests. Many of them are fairly shallow. In fact, a lot of them use templates that really don’t do that good of a job selling people to a particular brand. Now you may be thinking to yourself “if this is such a badly written piece, why should I be worried?


Here’s the thing. Just because it did not convince you to buy a particular brand, don’t think for a minute that it did not harm you. Why? You wasted your time reading that piece of garbage. You could’ve been doing something else that could’ve put more money in your pocket or would have made your life more meaningful. 


You see where I’m coming from? Please understand that these reviews are all over the place and they pretty much liter the internet. Focus primarily on the brand. The great thing about switching from a review to a brand based selection process is that you don’t feel that you are starting the game like you’re taking shots in the dark. 


It’s not like you’re rolling the dice and hoping somehow, someway, that you hit the right combination and you make the right choice. Let me tell you. You don’t stumble upon an informed choice. That simply isn’t going to happen. 


Making the right call is not something that happens to you by random or dumb luck. It takes quite a bit of work. It definitely takes some sort of mental or intellectual preparation. You have to have some sort of system or method for you to make the right choice. 


At the very least, you should be able to make an informed choice. What kind of factors should you consider when it comes to picking the right electronic cigarette brand? It all boils down to your lifestyle. That is the short answer. 


You know more than anybody else on this planet what your personal wants or needs are. Nobody can step into your head. Nobody can read your mind. Nobody can see the world from your own pair of eyes. You would have to step up and insist. 


Believe it or not, your wants and needs are important enough, at least they should be. That’s why you need to step up. You know your habits and patterns. You know your preferences. 


This might seem pretty basic, but there are other factors that you should consider. I know you may not be a very flashy person. Maybe you’re the type of person who doesn’t really care about what other people say. But here’s the thing. Don’t ever discount the power of appearance. 


When you’re using any kind of electronic cigarette, you are sending vapor out. People can see that you are using that device so the cool factor is always at play. Don’t forget appearance. Again, even if you couldn’t care less about impressing those around you, you should make sure that at least the appearance of this nicotine ingestion device fits your personality.


It pays to think ahead to ecig mods and accessories


Regardless of your brand research, please understand that when you’re looking at all these different online catalogs that it’s not just a main ecig device that you should be looking at. You should also look at the total package. 


Throughout the product life cycle of the item that you are on the market for, you probably will have to pick up tanks, ecig tanks accessories, and pipes. You probably would be picking up all sorts of cleaning tools. 


Look at the big picture. Don’t think that you’re just looking for one device for a specific purpose and you’re calling it a day. It’s not that simple. It doesn’t work that way. 


You have to look at the big picture. Otherwise, things might spiral out of control, might seem like too much of a hassle, might seem like it takes too much effort, or it might seem like it’s a waste of time. 


Consult with ecig forums


When people hang out at an electronic cigarette or ecig forums, they often share valuable personal information. 


You may be thinking to yourself “The only opinion that truly matters is my own. After all, I’m the person who’s going to be using this product. I’m the person who’s going to have to fit a particular brand and model to my set of personal circumstances and situation. Why should I care about what other people say because they prefer different brands and models precisely because they have different needs? These differences do add up. So, where’s the connection? Why should I listen to them?”


Here’s the thing. If you notice that a lot of these people fit your particular personal profile, you might want to sit up and pay attention. I’m not saying you should automatically take their recommendations or you should automatically jump at the brands that they keep talking about.


When you look at what they have in common with you, this should be a starting point. That should at least attract your interest so you can scratch beneath the surface. How tight of a connection is there between their preferences and your particular lifestyle and electronic cigarette usage environment? What are your needs? 


Line that up with the state or obvious preferences of these people on ecig forums. When you do this, all you’re doing is looking for social proof. That’s what you’re doing. Regardless of how much of an individualist you think you are, regardless of how much of a free thinker or independent person you may view yourself, it always pays to look at the social proof. How come?


You can let other people do your homework for you. If they make mistakes in the past, you can learn from their mistakes. Believe me. Mistakes can be costly. You don’t have to go through that painful experience. 


You don’t have to waste money. You don’t have to waste time and resources. Just look at people’s experiences, line them up with your own needs and come up with some sort of objective decision. 


Unfortunately, a lot of these don’t jump out at you. Look for patterns. These must be natural and spontaneous. When you read their forum posts, try to weed out obvious self-promoters. This counts the statements and posts of blatant spammers. 


Get to the heart of the matter. If you see that there is a tremendous amount of organic feedback, pay attention. There’s something there. After all, as the old saying goes, where there’s smoke, there’s fire.



Ecig forums have severe limitations


As awesome as forums may be, please understand that these online interest magnets suffer from severe structural limitations.


First of all, they attract paid promoters. These are people who are interested in pushing a particular product. They couldn’t really care less about your particular circumstances and specific needs. They just want to get paid by advertising certain products that pay them a commission.


There is also such a thing as board bias. When people from message boards, these places tend to develop a personality of their own. These forums tend to have some sort of organizational bias. This really can’t be avoided because whenever you get a group of people together to develop bonds, they start excluding other people. 


They start developing a sense of group identity which, unfortunately, gets its power from the ability of members to define who they’re not. Be aware of the board bias so it doesn’t work against you. 

Finally, please understand that ecig forums tend to lean towards brands that are already well known. If you’re thinking of going to these places because you’re trying to discover the latest and greatest brand in the market, you’re looking at a tall order. 


Not only do you have to read between the forum lines, but you have to filter recommendations to electronic cigarette review sites. In other words, don’t just go to those forums, pick up a brand, and enter your credit card information in some sort of online forum somewhere.


It doesn’t work that way. You have to cross reference whatever information or recommendations you get from these websites with a stand-alone electronic cigarette review site. This way, you can get to the bottom of the problem.


Finally, you should look for discount coupons like Ecig City coupon code collections or something like that. the good news is as more and more electronic cigarette vendors flood to the market, there are more opportunities popping up all over the place for you to save they do tend to go hand in hand.

How to read E-cigarette reviews the right way

It’s obvious that electronic cigarettes, despite their fairly recent health controversies, have become very popular all over the world. This should not be a surprise to most people. After all, regardless of how you look at it, when you switch from traditional smoke based cigarettes that produce a tremendous amount of tar, you are moving to a healthier way to inhale nicotine.


We can debate until forever as to health improvements, but it’s undeniable that if you switch from pumping a tremendous amount of tar into the inner linings of your lungs to simply burning liquid, you are engaging in something healthier. 


Also, electronic cigarettes have been shown to help with the smoking cessation process. The percentage may not be as high as a lot of ecig proponents would like. But this is still positive news. I really can’t understand why this hasn’t gotten enough mileage in mainstream media all over the world. 


It has been shown in study after study that ecigs and electronic cigarette products of varying designs have helped people stop smoking. It provides a healthier intermediate path to eventually giving up on nicotine.


Finally, people have picked up this type of nicotine ingestion device because it simply looks cool. When you are using an electronic cigarette instead of a regular cigarette, you can’t help but look different. This is especially true if you are producing quite a bit of vapor.


It looks good, depending on the juice that you are using, it can smell really good as well. Talk about making a good impression not just in terms of appearance but also in terms of scent. Who can argue with that? 


Ecig brands have become very common


Back in the day, you really have to search far and wide to identify e-cigarette brands that have truly distinguished themselves. Now, the market has matured enough that when you mention certain brands like Halo, Volcano Blue, Hoosier, Logic, or Aspire, people would know what you’re talking about. 


In fact, it’s not unusual for a friendly debate to break out among Halo and Volcano ecig fans trying to get to the bottom of which device is better. You and I both know the answer really boils down to personal preference. 


If you have certain preferences, no one can really tell you that their particular way of doing things is superior. It really all boils down to finding the right tool that produces the right results at the right time and this is a very personal choice.


Ecig communities continue to grow


As more and more people become fans of a wide range of ecig brands as well as alternative ecig devices, we see the rise of online discussion communities. These online communities are actually not new. In fact, it’s high time that the ecig community developed such online watering holes. 


That’s really the best way to describe this phenomenon because if you’ve been paying attention to the internet, regardless of what you’re into whether you’re into Chihuahuas, Pomeranians, certain brands of computers, or certain sports teams, there will always be a message board or at least some sort of forum, Facebook group or Facebook page dedicated to whatever it is you’re obsessing about. 


Welcome to the world of online communities and market interest segmentation. That’s a fancy marketing way of saying that people with shared interests tend to cluster online. Birds of a feather, after all, flock together. Nothing revolutionary here.


But what’s so awesome about the internet is that it has made forming such communities so much easier. Back in the day, you basically have to have an office and you have to send out a lot of fliers. People would have to talk to people that they know. You would have to know somebody who would then, in turn, know somebody else. It was a big mess.


Also, these groups are all over the place and they hardly talk to each other. All that changed with the online community. Ecig online communities are great places to find out more information about your favorite e-cigarette brands. 


Whether you’re into Halo, Blue, Hoosier, Aspire, Logic, or any other upcoming brand, you can get the inside scoop there. Best of all, you can get discount coupons. Which ecig communities should you look into? 


If you want to break into it slowly, look for Ecig City. You can look for distinct stand-alone ecig forum sites and message boards. You could also try Reddit. It has amazing subsections or subreddits dedicated to everything and anything related to electronic cigarettes.


The bottom line: The market for ecig mods and accessories continues to expand


No discussion about e-cigarettes would be complete if we don’t at least touch on the growing market for supplemental products related to these devices. I am, of course, talking about ecig batteries, ecig juice, tanks, oils, and pipe equipment.


You have to remember when people use these devices, a lot of them are looking for durability and the most bang for their money. As some of these devices cost a pretty penny, it’s a good idea to invest in a little bit more cash in the top of the line accessories. 


This way, you can really maximize the enjoyment that you get from your particular nicotine ingestion device. You have to understand that ecig mods and accessories are not just available options for people looking for a spare or replacement.


In fact, just like with automobiles, more and more people are not happy with simply going with the stock parts of their ecig device. They would look for top-line batteries so their devices could last a long time. They would also look for a wide selection of juices. 


These come in all sorts of colors and flavors. They have different levels of vapor production. They also have different scents. It really is an amazing market because as the market matures, more and more people are paying extra for top of the line and distinctive accessories.


It’s kind of like the after-market industry for cars and motorcycles. More and more people are looking beyond stock equipment. They’re looking to make a statement or they’re looking to take their e-cigarette experience to the next level.


Given the rise of mods, as well as a wide range of different smoking and vapor production accessories, things have never been easier.



It’s so easy to buy ecigs online


Back in the day, you basically were left with a very narrow choice of places to buy ecigs. Now, there’s Ecig Express, Ecig Avenue, and Ecig Crib among many others. You can go to these places as starting points because they would direct you, or at least give you ideas, as to where to go next.


If you insist on buying from a lesser known brand or you’re looking for some sort of local flavor, you should be excited about the fact that ecig storefronts are popping up all over the place. The reality is that this is the best time to buy cigarettes online. 


You probably have heard of all sorts of controversies regarding these devices. There are all sorts of health initiatives in different stages of resolution in jurisdictions all over the United States. In fact, if you were to read a typical newspaper, you would probably be confused as to what exactly is going on with e-cigarettes. 


It seems that some jurisdictions are almost close to banning them while other jurisdictions are very loose and even friendly to these devices. The truth is there’s a huge demand for the latest and greatest models and technology. 


Things like the V2 electronic cigarettes are never going to go away, at least not soon enough for their critics. The bottom line is as more people discover their power of choice, as far as nicotine ingestion devices go, people are looking for the best value.


 This is what makes the whole process a little tricky. We could all agree that we want the very best electronic cigarettes. There’s just so many different ways we can go about finding the best product for us. 


A lot of this difficulty really turns on how you define “the best.” What may be the best for you may not be all that good to somebody else and vice versa. Somebody you know, who’s all into the ecig scene, may think that a particular brand is the best thing to come around since sliced bread. You might beg to differ. 


That goes with the territory. This is why you need to pay careful attention to the phrase “the best.” If you come across a review of any type of electronic cigarette product and they keep hammering home the point that this is the best product, you might want to sit up and pay attention.


I’m not saying you should do that in a good way. I’m saying you should become suspicious because a little bit of healthy skepticism can go a long way. if you’re looking for the best ecig source, mod, or simply the best, you have to have a good strategy for reading these materials.


A lot of them take the form of ecig reviews. This is a serious problem. How come? People have pretty much been programmed to give reviews a tremendous amount of deference. You would think that if somebody went through all the trouble and time of putting together some sort of analysis in the form of review that you should at least respect what they have to say.


That’s how they get you. It’s really the form that they are using to get you to drop your guard. If you were to rearrange the materials that they sent you and put it in a different format, you probably would be a little bit more skeptical. It would probably be more obvious to you that they’re just trying to sell you stuff.


This is the first step to properly reading electronic cigarette reviews. Otherwise, you will keep making the wrong call. 


Here are some hallmarks of reviews that you should pay attention to. Use these as reading filters so you don’t get taken for a ride. I understand the fact that you work hard for your money. We all do. It really would be a shame if you were to throw it around carelessly because you don’t have a good working strategy for reading electronic cigarette product reviews.


Pick reviews that truly understand how an ecig works


How can you tell a legit review from a worthless one? You need to determine initial credibility by looking at how the writer of the review describes the ecig operation process. If the reviewers somehow, someway, clueless regarding basic device operations, can you really trust them to recommend brands like Ego Ecig or Blue Electronic Cigarettes or recommend a trustworthy ecig store near me or ecig outlet? Of course not!


How can you trust them? They don’t even know how an ecig device works. If they can even make a point or make a showing with that very basic issue, you really have no business taking them seriously. It becomes readily apparent, and sometimes painfully transparent, that they’re just trying to sell you a product.


Don’t get me wrong, I’m okay with the sales process. But you have to tell me from the get-go that you’re trying to sell me something. But if you’re going to try to hide behind a review format so I can drop my guard and give you the benefit of the doubt, then I have a problem with that. Do you see where I’m coming from?


This is how you should approach not only e-cigarette or electronic cigarette online reviews but any kind of review. I don’t care whether you’re buying airplane tickets, trying to reserve a spot at a nightclub, or anything else. You have to know how reviews work. You can’t let them take you for a ride.


My strategy: Read ecig reviews with a promotions filter 


The best way to go about doing this is to just assume that the review that you’re reading is trying to sell you a product. Just get that out of the way coming in. Besides the promotions, did you learn anything new about the brand that you’re interested in? what does it teach you about Blue Ecig? Max Electronic Cigarettes? Juul models? Or Jack releases? Did you get enlightened about White Cloud electronic cigarettes? 


If the answer is no, then you’re just looking at a glorified sales flier. That’s really al that it is. There’s really not much difference between those annoying pamphlets or fliers that you get for local businesses and the stuff that you’re reading online. It’s really all about just getting you to buy a product and not much else.


They’re definitely not interested in educating you. They couldn’t care less about you making a truly informed decision.


Avoid reviews that use fear to scare readers into buying


If you thought my advice to you above was a mouthful, wait. I’m just getting started. You see, a lot of these well-written reviews don’t try to sell you upfront. They’re not blatant about it. They know that most people have enough brain cells to tell if they are being sold to. So, what do these guys do?


They use fear to not only get your attention but to manipulate you into making some sort of decision that you normally would not do. Beware of reviews that fixate on accidents where an ecig explodes. 


Please understand that these accidents do happen. But guess what? TV sets, whether they’re flat screen or old school models, explode. But you don’t see newspaper headlines about that. Cars malfunction in such a way they lead to really horrific roadside disasters, but you don’t see people running around like chickens with their heads cut off about such news items.


Unfortunately, we live in the age of social media and it’s very easy for a lot of these media outlets to make a big deal about ecig popcorn lung and other health “disasters.” You have to be suspicious of the exaggerations. You have to understand that a lot of these online newspapers are simply trying to get clicks. They’re merely trying to put food on the table. That’s the bottom line.


If you look at the hard statistics, you actually have a higher chance of getting killed driving down your street than using the typical electronic cigarette device. Unfortunately, when you read a typical scary ecig review or “informative article” this is the last impression you would get. Be aware that this is happening.


The review should have a strictly ecig focus


It’s really important to make sure that if you’re reading a review, it’s all about ecigs. It shouldn’t just veer off into smoking pot, marijuana, or vaping. It should just stay on point. 



The review should be on a site with a decent e-cig gallery


Beware of reviews that are simply just glorified sales pages with not much else. If you read everything that they have, it’s all reviews and each review promotes one particular product. That’s transparent.


Unfortunately, people fall for that all the time. Look for something extra. See if they accommodate all types of ecig users like users of an e-cig starter kit or ecig mod aficionados. See if they have coupon codes like Ecig Express coupon materials.


Finally, cross-reference the reviews and see if ecig forums had heard of the review site you are using for reviews. This is how you find and benefit from the very best ecig reviews. Ignore everything else.
