It’s been 10 years since China created electronic cigarettes, devices that simulate a real cigarette or pipe and are frequently used as an alternative to tobacco to aid the process of quitting.
Their popularity has lead many AlixBloggers to ask us some questions about them: which is the best one? How much do they cost? Are there any on AliExpress? What’s their quality like? Well, let’s begin by answering two of these questions: AliExpress does offer cigarettes and, according to the comments we’ve read, they are very good quality.
How does an electronic cigarette work?
Considering their popularity, you probably already know the advantages and disadvantages of exchanging you tobacco habit for one of these electronic cigarettes. That’s why we are going to focus on some other questions about these devices, such as their functions and how to purchase them on AliExpress.
This tobacco alternative works with an electronic system powered by a battery that heats up a liquid solution and turns it into vapor. The device also has a cartridge that is interchangeable and chargeable, but can also be disposable. The main substances of the liquid are propylene glycol (70%) and/or vegetable glycerin (around 20%), nicotine in various dosis (between 0 and 54 mg/ml) and flavors or aromas.
There are tons of models on AliExpress (you can find up to 27.000 references), so to help you out, we’ve selected the best selling ones here and sorted from most to least sales and according to customer reviews.
We are talking about thousand of historic sales. In fact, according to most customers who have purchased them on the platform they are really good quality. It’s one of the best selling products. Another positive aspect about these devices is that they come in a small case that probably won’t be help up in customs, so you won’t be having problems on that front. 🙂
The best electronic cigarette in AliExpress
When it comes to quality/price ratio, the best electronic cigarette can be found in the michael-cigs shop. It’s the number 1 on AliExpress and, as you can see below, it cost a maximum of 6€. It has excellent reviews and up to 11.000 sales. The shop also has excellent reviews and one year antiquity. If you like the product, this is the place to buy it. And as you may already know, in the worst case scenario all you have to do is ask for your money back.
ADVICE: one of the best electronic cigarette brands is eGo, available on AliExpress.
If you are interested in this brand, there is one thing you should know about its settings. To explain it, here is a review left by one of our readers explaining why the cigarette didn’t seem to work when the battery was fully charged: “most eGo batteries have a ‘5 clicks’ function to block the cigarette. This means you have to click on the button quickly 5 times to unblock the battery and switch it on or off”.
Of course there are other cigarette makers that may be just as good even if they have less ratings and sales. Just make sure you pay close attention to what other customers have to say and I’m sure you will get a great product.
How much does an electronic cigarette cost?
This is another frequent questions among our readers, especially when it comes to knowing if a 6/8 to 10€ one is good, or if maybe it’s worth spending a bit more…
In this case, there is no reason for you to choose a more expensive one. In fact, the most popular ones are usually the cheaper ones, and not only in AliExpress. You can find tons of cheap models for less that 10€ and other more expensive ones for up to 30€.
Do electronic cigarettes help you quit smoking?
There is a certain dichotomy: some experts consider they do help and claim they should be considered a health product; others recommend trying first with more traditional pharmacological methods.
Can I use them anywhere?
This depends on your country of residence, but as a general rule you are not allowed to use them in health facilities, bars and restaurants. This being said, you might want to take a look at your country’s legislation and when in doubt, just ask 🙂
