E-cigarettes have one basic rationale to their design: they must look and feel like cigarettes to smokers casual or otherwise. They’re appealing because unlike ordinary cigarettes, they last ten times long. They are also inexpensive and are easily refillable so you’ll not only be giving your lungs relief, but also your wallet.
Here are just some of the many kinds of models or variants of electronic cigarettes, each with their basic advantages and disadvantages:
Don’t let the name fool you, Minis are known as the classic pen style look of electronic cigarettes. They are a little longer and heavier than normal cigarettes.
One gripe about this particular model is that while it does serve its purpose with a smaller and thinner package, it loses the “feel” of smoking a cigarette. The thinness of this particular model might strike a chord with certain smokers, but if you aren’t bothered by the look of this model, then it’s a more compact solution to vaporized smoking.
Super minis are the closest size and circumference to a normal cigarette. They look the part which makes them quite popular in comparison to the other models. Most of the products that belong to these variant tend to be designed to look closely to a cigarette as much as possible, making them inconspicuous and less distracting (heck, try smoking with a pen-sized E-cigarette. You will never hear the end of it).
Pen styles aren’t building for compact smoking; rather, they are made for aesthetic. They have essentially the same circumference as normal cigarettes but are longer than If you’re going for a more classical look when you smoke, this might just be right around your alley.
The fact that they do not contain any carcinogens is also a big reason why one should switch to electronic cigarettes. Although these types of cigarettes still contain nicotine (this can vary depending on the type of liquid inside it), they are also used by smokers who are trying to quit or break the habit of smoking.
Compact vs. Realism
There are basically two things that differentiate with these models: its size and how close it is to a cigarette in terms of experience and look. Compact designs are lighter and easier to pack in contrast to pipes/cigar or cigarette-sized E-cigarettes. Realistic designs however go for a more authentic experience rather than concern it with whether or not it fits in your duffle bag.
Unfortunately realism overrules compact design. The reason for this is quite obvious: smokers want to emulate the experience of smoking cigarettes so it’s not basically a feel but also the look and weight of holding a cigarette in your hand. This experience is also important for people who want to quite smoking and have an oral fixation; it wont completely rub off the withdrawal process but it does help in easing it up.
