Here Are The Best Ecigs & Vaporizers For 2017

The history of mod and tank design has been either boring and conservative, or outrageous and strange. Some vapers prefer the conservative aesthetic while others enjoy the wild and outrageous design aesthetic…(today) more than a few manufacturers have been paying attention to ‘western design aesthetics’.

Looking for the Best Vapor Products of the Year? Here They Are with Discount Codes Too! (but first my reviews).

When I started writing this post I asked myself, “What important ecig innovations are setting the standard of excellent for this year's vapor products?” 2017 is an important year as the US government will require all vapor products be approved and registered with the FDA by August. In addition, all e-liquid ingredients must be listed, including those that some believe are harmful, (such as Diacetyl, Acetoin and Acetyl Propionyl).

Taking all that into consideration, I thought it fair to first list the most reputable vapor companies; those who are ready to comply fully with all regulations.

Note – Some big companies, that were on the top of the list, including the makers of the high-end Provari vaporizers chose to shut down rather than incur the costs of FDA requirements.

The companies on my list are known for taking proper safety measures and are known for only selling “non-clone” vaporizers and e-cigarettes. They're also receiving the most positive feedback from their customers. I indicate whether they're preferred by new, intermediate or advanced vapers.

As the year progresses, I'll update the list so you may wish to follow ecigarettenews.net on Facebook and Twitter


What About Discount Sellers?

Discount vapor companies may be attractive, but too many are selling clones or knock-offs  that may not have the quality (or safety) features of the original product. I do list one discount company that stands above the others.


What About Convenience Store Ecigs?

Sorry, none of the e-cigarette brands sold at drug stores and convenient stores made the list, despite their popularity. My aversion to vapor products manufactured by the big tobacco companies did not affect my decision.






Halo Cigs

Juul Vapor


Vaporfi Express



  • Great Choice for Beginner to Advanced Vapers. 
  • Sophisticated slim, easy to use design that's very portable.

Review: Not everyone needs massive, billowing clouds to enjoy vaping. Sometimes you just want a quality vape pen that has the feel of a cigarette over a heavier “MOD” vaping device. I recommend this easy-to-use e-cig from Vaporfi. The Express model is so uncomplicated, easy to set up and reliable. You get great flavor, good vapor production and an elegant, very portable profile. The basic kit includes a long and a short battery and 2 chargers. You add your choice of cartridge. There are 3 styles – pre-filled, refillable cartridge, and refillable mini Clearomizer. If you want a kit complete with ejuice and a carry case, get the Express Bundle. 

Vaporfi VOX60 vapor MOD



  • Excellent Box Mod for Intermediate to Advanced Vapers
  • Mega-powerful, extremely durable and you get to choose from 3 different tanks.

Review: This Box Mod temperature control Starter Kit includes your choice of accompanying tanks – the vShock Tank, the Volt Hybrid Tank, or the vSix Tank. You get wattage control, temperature control, and adjustable airflow (although you need to buy the Ni200 atomizer if you want to use TC). That said, the three coil option is also available and it produces great vapor and taste.

Vaporfi Atom

Vaporfi Atom


  • A High-End (and High Priced) Vaporizer that heats dry herbs (including tobacco) to create vapor rather than traditional smoke. 
  •  Built-In 3000mAh Battery, Compact Design and Motion Sensing Technology

Review: Slim, pocket-sized and easy to use, the powerful Atom gives you three different temperature control settings for a smooth, cool, flavorful, herb vaping experience. The Atom also has a cool LED light interface. Just shake the device to see your battery level. It's also one of the most expensive vaporizers on the market today, but dry herb affictionatos say it's well worth it.




  • Touch-Screen Variable Settings and Refillable Blank Cartridges
  • Longer battery life than any other microcig (V2's new name for a slim-style vape pen)

Review:  V2 is still America’s most popular e-cigarette. Boldly innovate with new styles and products released every year, V2 has an extensive line of vaping products that ecigarettenews has recommend for years. For 2017 I have to highlight the new VERTX Plus Blank Cartridge Kit which comes in three colors, black, gray and rose gold. I love the unique design that gives you the power and performance of a tank, plus battery variable voltage options and magnetic connectors. Great for all vaping levels, you can refill the VERTX up to 20 times. V2 recommends only PG eliquid blends (not as thick as VG blends), but a small concession considering the pen is leak resistant. 


DirectVapor SX Mini G Class


Looking for a discount ecig company that won't sell you a Clone? One company stands apart and that's DirectVapor. 

With so many low-quality imports flooding the market vapers need to know which companies are serious about ecig safety and reliability. 

DirectVapor is popular with advanced vapers who want the best deals on RBA's rebuildable Mods. DirectVapor has them at unbeatable prices. Even cheaper with my coupon code. 

The new SX Mini G Class surpasses  most advanced vaporizers. It has a superior dual battery giving you awesome power.  A refined SX550J Chipset is one of the most versatile and formidable chipsets ever crafted. There's a  Joystick controlled screen flow that's truly unique. This vape MOD supports stainless steel, titanium and nickel coils for enhanced compatibility. If all of that wasn't enough, you can sync a Bluetooth compatible app to customize your wallpaper and control your MOD remotely. Priced accordingly at over $200.

Halo Reactor Vaporizer

HALO REACTOR BOX MOD STARTER KIT – Great for intermediate vapers.

This is one of my very favorite adjustable wattage/voltage sub ohm ready box mods. Why? It delivers heavenly clouds and smooth vapor and considering all the features it offers, Reactor is very easy to use.  The 4,400 mAh battery lasts for days on end. The glass tank holds 5 ml of E-liquid and houses a .5 sub-ohm dual-coil head. It's a top fill tank so I never spill my juice. Best of all, the tank never leaks. Great colors and a steal for only $60. 

JUUL Vapor

Wired Magazine said the JUUL “Might just be the first great e-cig”. It's certainly an outstanding choice for beginner vapers, although this seasoned vaper likes it for it's nicotine delivery which is major. JUUL is different in that it uses nicotine salts – the same type of nicotine found in tobacco leaves. It really gives you a cigarette-like nicotine delivery. At 5% that puts them well above the top level of 2.4% in most other ecigs. The modern styling is pretty impressive too and it's so small, I can carry it in my pocket. There are 5 flavors – Tobacco, CoolMint, Fruit Medley, Creme Brulee and their newest flavor Mango.
