Posted by Kurtis O Brien on

E-cigarettes are now established worldwide as a successful smoking cessation technology as opposed to the 'fad' tag they carried during their inception. The growing number of users in conjunction with the huge array of vaping options on the market has led to a positively correlating user base, here we will take a look at the various options available to you and the best products in their respective categories according to our best sellers.

Nasty Airfix: Nasty's first foray into the disposable e-cigarette market was the 'Fix' pen which hit the shelves in early 2020.

IQOS: The first contraption of its kind to heat tobacco was the IQOS device which hit the market in early 2018. Designed with the help of numerous lab personnel and a multi billion pound budget, the IQOS was created to replicate the sensation of smoking a cigarette whilst containing up to 95% fewer harmful chemicals* Since its launch, it has reached users on a global scale and slowly increased in popularity. IQOS uses patented technology that heats up a blade, this blade warms the VG coated tobacco in the HEET stick to provide tobacco flavoured vapour that mimics a cigarette. (*IQOS Fact Checker)

PLOOM: Ploom arrived on the scene during 2021, providing an alternative heated tobacco option for users. Their technology works by using a heating element that surrounds their 'EVO sticks' which results in a tobacco flavoured vapour that is inhaled much like a cigarette, emitting significantly less chemicals. Although still in their infancy in the UK, their 1st edition Ploom device is proving popular amongst users wishing to replicate smoking cigarettes.
