A Vaper's Guide to the Best E-Cigarettes for 2015
Important!THERE IS AN UPDATE TO THIS POST! CHECK OUT THE BEST E-CIGARETTES AND VAPORIZERS FOR 2017.
2015 was a remarkable year for electronic cigarettes. Here are some of the milestones:
- Since the Oxford English Dictionary named “VAPE” the word of the year in 2014, many ecigarette companies choose to incorporate the ‘vape' word into their product names and advertising. Popular V2 Cigs dropped the “cigs” from their product name and their European brand is now Vapour2.
- Vaporizers continued to outsell stick-style “cig-alikes”, but several old favorites like V2 reached unprecedented sales.
- There are now over 60 million vapers around the world.
- More doctors started recommending e-cigarettes to their patients who smoked tobacco cigarettes and WebMD promoted the story.
- Public Health England shook up the vaping world by reporting that ecigarettes were about 95% safer than tobacco cigarettes.
With ecig regulations close at hand, the best electronic cigarette companies aren’t sitting back waiting to be fingered for inferior parts or suspect chemicals in e-liquids; they’re preparing with strict safety standards that include highly stable batteries, warning features on high Watt advanced vaporizers and 100% pure, third-party tested e-liquid ingredients (that are Diacetyl, Acetoin and Acetyl Propionyl free), and stable tanks, cartridges and batteries.
Here are E-Cigarette News' picks for the Top Rated Ecig Companies for 2015 and 2016. Each one is geared to specific style and taste.
The Halo Triton Tank System and traditionally styled, Model G6 electronic cigarette kit won PC Magazine’s Editor’s Choice Award. The Triton Tank won in both 2013 and 2014. PC Magazine said,
“Halo is to E-Cigs What Apple is to Tablets..Halo Triton Tank e-cigs are not only stylish-looking gadgets— they are easy to use, they have great battery life, and Halo's tobacco e-juices are delicious…this is an outstanding electronic cigarette system.”
In our opinion, the Halo Triton Tank is still one of the most reliable and easy to use vaporizers. It’s not too heavy, has an easy fill, no mess top loading tank and long lasting batteries come in many colors. The Triton Tank System comes with 2 tanks, 2 batteries, a USB adapter, a Wall Charger, a padded case and a matching adapter cone (so you can use a prefilled cartridge).
Halo G6 Starter kit is an excellent choice for beginner vapers or those who prefer a traditionally styled ecigarette. The G6 allows users to switch between a regular ecig prefilled cartridge to a refillable mini tank. The kit comes with a 5-pack of cartomizers, USB and wall charger and a padded case. It’s everything you need to start vaping. When you’re ready to add your own e-liquids (and Halo makes some of the best), just purchase the mini tank.
Important!UPDATE: Halo released two high powered sub-ohm vaporizers, the Tracer and the Reactor in December 2015.
V2’s beginner style ecig remains one of the best the industry has to offer. We like their long battery which holds a charge for over a day and comes in cool, colorful designs. It’s compatible with any of V2’s prefilled flavor cartridges or their mini tank EX blanks that are refillable with any eliquid from any supplier of eliquids. Vapor production is outstanding for this traditionally styled e-cigarette. I love it because it's so slim and easy to carry.
For more advanced vapers, the V2Cigs sleek Pro Series 3 is truly innovative as it avoids battery/tank threads with its magnetic drop in cartridge. The charger uses magnetic technology too. In 2015 V2 introduced their Series7 line of vaporizers that heat loose leaves, essential oils and wax.
VaporFi (formerly VaporZone) has one of the best traditionally styled e-cigarettes that can accommodate both prefilled and refillable cartridges.
Their Express Starter Kit has a crystal-tip battery that is advanced lithium ion technology meaning it is more stable than lithium polymer batteries which can burn out or overcharge. The kit is priced right at only $29.99 because you purchase your preferred cartridge separately. Choose from a prefilled cartridge, refillable cartridge or or clear (refillable) mini Cartomizer that holds.9 ml of eliquid.
Looking for customized vaporizer? Perhaps you prefer a glass tank? Vaporfi has it with their new on-line Custom Kit Builder that lets you choose colors and battery power as well as tank styles from an easy to use custom kit builder. Your vaporizer is displayed as you build the components.
VaporFi has kept up with ecig innovation. In 2016 they introduced the VOXTC 50Watt Temperature Control MOD – an advanced ecig that even handles sub-ohm vaping with added safety features.
4 – Vapor Couture -The Most Elegant E-Cigarette On the Market
Vapor Couture is the sister company of #1 Best Seller V2Cigs so you know they uphold the same high quality and safety standards as V2.
Although Vapor Couture is designed for women, they do appeal to men who prefer a slim, lightweight ecig profile.
The elegant styling does not replace big flavor and voluminous vapor in a cartridge style ecigarette. VC does not have vaporizers or refillable cartridges, but they do boast a high-end designer accessory line that includes a leather clutch and charging case.

5- Apollo – Reliable, Popular and Very Affordable
Apollo Cigs is no newcomer to the market. They've been around since 2010. Always keeping up with product innovation, their line of excellent electronic cigarettes have been consistently growing and improving.
Apollo has a wide rage of products – from beginner Starter Kits to Advanced Kits. They also have very economical Express Kits for those who don't want to spend a lot on their first ecig.
The company also sells popular third party vaporizers, tanks and accessories, all at a discount prices.
