Best E-Cigarette For 2014

By Matt McConnell

The best e-cigs of 2014, Green Smoke comes out on top

It’s time to name the best e-cig for 2014. This is no easy task. Every 3 days, a new e-cigarette company hits the market. The vast majority of those new companies are fly by night businesses that are out to make a fast dollar, not a good e-cig. ECCR has separated the wheat from the chaff and we are ready to talk about the best electronic cigarette.

Today’s awards show is all about the cig-a-like. That is an electronic cigarette that looks like a tobacco cigarette. There are many types of e-cigs out there today. Many vaping enthusiasts feel that they have outgrown cig-a-likes. We understand that.

Once upon a time cig-a-likes were not able to produce the amount of vapor that an e-cig tank system could. That is no longer the case. Battery technology and vaporizing technology have changed.

There is no doubt that today’s cig-a-like is not your Grand Pappy’s cig-a-like! In the last few years technological enhancements enabled the best ecig brands to deliver more efficient vaporizing and that means more vapor.

The best e-cigarettes that we will be talking about today provide excellent vapor. They also deliver when it comes to flavor and they provide you with the wide variety of options that you deserve. They are also the most convenient and easy to use e-cigarettes available.

A cig-a-like enables smokers to mimic the habit of smoking in every way, right down to appearance. If you are trying to send tobacco into obscurity it is important that you satisfy your smoking habit on as many levels as possible. Addiction is not just about the nicotine, it is about the ritual. Cig-a-likes are the best way to begin your vaping journey and to help you replace smoking with a less harmful alternative.

Cig-a-likes are also perfect for the consumer that is not interested in gadgets. Some people just want something that is easy to use. They are not interested in the controlling the voltage or manually filling tanks. They are not looking for a hobby nor do they want to spend a great deal of time worrying about when they might have to replace a coil. Time is scarce in this world and convenience equals time. Simplicity is the solution. The best ecigs of 2014 that we will be discussing today are all brilliant performers that are super convenient to use.

In the near future, we will be hosting the awards for the best mod. We will be featuring the top mod, box mod and mech mod. There are some vapor producing monsters out there that we can’t wait to tell you about! Today, however, the spotlight is on the classic, reliable cig-a-like electronic cigarette! The red carpet has been rolled out, the paparazzi has assembled and the festivities are about to begin. No autographs, please.

Choosing the best e-cig is kind of like Oscar night. In fact, I am writing this article wearing a tuxedo. I look very good. I have the envelopes ready and after my monologue of hilarious jokes we will get down to business.

Best E-Cig Award Night Monologue Of Hilarity

Okay, did you hear about the guy who would only buy cheap cartridges? He was a real carto – miser!! Two vapers walk into a bar, you would think one of them would have seen it!! Why did the vaper always love to look at himself in the mirror? Because he had a big eGo!! How was the vaper able to always carry so much e-liquid? Because he was built like a … tank!!!

Good news, the monologue is over! Back to business, namely finding the best e-cig of 2014.

Choosing The Best Electronic Cigarette Of 2014

the best e-cigarette brands of 2014Just like the biggest money making movies are not necessarily the best movies, the best selling e-cigs are not necessarily the best e-cigs.

Take a look at Logic Ecig for example.  Logic’s retail presence is second to none. They have a network of stores selling their product so you do see them everywhere. Even though they are aggressively marketed to smokers, they are not a contender for the best electronic cigarette.

Logic E-cigs are too expensive and do not produce a lot of vapor. They have very limited options in terms of products flavors, carts nicotine levels and all of that. For those of you who have already bought a Logic E-cigarette chances are that you have not been too impressed and you have not really experienced what vaping can be.

If you have already purchased a Log Ecig, we recommend using Atlantic cartridges. Atlantic cartomizers are fully compatible, come in more flavors and more nicotine levels. If you are a carto – miser, good news Atlantic cartridges cost far less than Logic E-Cig cartridges.

The Vuse is another e-cig that has massive resources behind it and a massive retail network at its fingertips. If you live in an area where the Vuse is sold, chances are that you see it everywhere. As far as performance, it lags far, far behind the top performers especially in the category of choice. Vuse and other e-cigs that you find at gas stations and corner stores offer very few flavor and nicotine choices. Who thinks more options are better? Yah, we do, too.

The Vuse is like the 2011 movie ‘Green Lantern’. Lots of hype, massive budget but a box office flop. $125 million in marketing got a few people through the doors after it opened, but the Green Lantern quickly faded out. Sequel? No chance!

The e-cigs that you find in many retail outlets are generic brands. They have not been developed after years of research and development. They have not been the result of a new innovation. They have been pre-packaged and shipped. Some of these brands have good business models and excellent connections.

Good marketing may be good business, but it does not necessarily equate to the best e-cig. The best has to perform when the curtain goes up. It must perform on cue. It must leave the audience wanting more! It must be so amazing that shouts of “encore” rise from all corners of the world!

To achieve all of this amazement the best e-cigarette must meet certain performance standards as set by the Academy, I mean ECCR. For example a battery should last in the range of 200 puffs in order to be considered. The same standards apply to cartridges.

The flavor and vapor have to be consistent. Any brand that provides one puff with lots of vapor and flavor followed by another puff with vapor but no flavor, and then a puff with overpowering flavor and no vapor…. well you see where I am going. This type of inconsistency is not acceptable.

All of the candidates for best e-cigarette provide long lasting batteries and cartridges as well as consistent flavor and vapor. If you use less than the best, vaping will not be what it could. The goal is to find a less harmful option that works. We cannot lose sight of that.

Best E-Cigarette Nominees

With all of this in mind, it is time to announce the best e-cigarette of 2014. First, let’s take a look at the nominees.

White Cloud Cigarettes

white electronic cigarettes, best e-cig, white cloud couponsWhite Cloud Cigarettes is a star in every way. The company is an innovator and its Cirrus 3X batteries are probably the longest lasting available. At White Cloud, quality counts every step of the way.

White Cloud cartridges use proprietary technology to give you a smooth draw and a phenomenal 350 to 400 puffs per cartridge.

White Cloud e-cigs does more than just sell some of the best e-cigs on the planet, they are also recognized as one of the best companies to work for. They have made a commitment to American workers. In fact, they recently relocated the entirety of their cartridge production from overseas to their Florida home base. White Cloud is helping to bring manufacturing back to the USA.

How does this brand actually perform? Our White Cloud e-cigarette reviews give you all of the details. The video portion of the reviews also take you on a visual tour of what the brand has to offer and allows you to see for yourself just how bright it shines.

Atlantic Cigs

atlantic e-cigarettes offers a free e-cig starter kitThe next nominee is a newcomer that has taken the industry by storm. Atlantic Cigs has invested heavily in R&D and it shows. As our Atlantic e-cig review explains, this brand does meet the minimum standards required to be considered for best electronic cigarette.

A fully charged battery and fresh e-cig refill cartridge will get you about the equivalent of a traditional pack of tobacco cigarettes. Where this fresh new brand really distinguishes itself, however, is in the vaping.

There are no warm-up puffs required. The first puff provides ample flavor and vapor. The production is consistent throughout the life cycle of the battery and cartridge.

Since first opening its doors, Atlantic has quickly evolved. The number of flavor and nicotine options has increased dramatically. This company is evolving quickly which brings us to our next point.

Cig-a-likes are generally recommended for new vapers. They are easy to use and more closely mimic smoking. Mods are bigger and must be manually filled. Mods tend to be preferred by veteran vapers. Here is where things get interesting. Atlantic’s new Nautilus mod is perhaps the lightest and easiest to use mod ever created.

The Nautilus mod features an automatic battery and a twist-and-click feature that makes it super easy to use. Filling the ecig tank is also easy and you can fill it with any of Atlantic’s 35 e-cig liquid flavor options. They have come up with a mod design that sets a new standard for convenience.

Suffice it to say that this young performer has turned heads and is bound for super stardom in the very near future!
