E cigarettes, also known as E-cigs, are becoming more popular because users like the fact that you don't inhale nicotine, and the 'cool' aspects of using a product that is considered hot and trendy. If you're about to order your first E-cig starter kit, here are the common items you'll receive to begin your new vaporized smoking journey.

How They Work

Before listing what you'll get in your E-cig starter kit, it's important to understand how these devices work. E-cigs run on batteries and create a vapor instead of smoke. The vapor is triggered by an atomizer, which heats the liquid in the E-cig that is placed inside a cartridge.

The liquid is made from ingredients such a glycerin, artificial flavoring, nicotine and propylene glycol. Because vapor is inhaled instead of smoke, E-cig manufacturers have promoted 'vaping' as a much healthier alternative to cigarette smoking, although health authorities have warned E-cig users that nicotine is still ingested into the bloodstream through the vapor.


Standard E-cig starter kits include the actual E-cig device itself, which has multiple styles, including pen-shaped and flashlight-shaped. The kit includes at least one E-cig, but often more, so that if one is charging, you can still use a spare.

The kit will also include at least one standard rechargeable battery, and in some cases a premium battery that has a longer charge life. You will also receive flavour cartridges that you chose at the time you ordered online or selected at a brick and mortar shop.

E-cig manufacturers have created a wide variety of flavours that exceed the choices available for standard cigarettes. Some common flavours include, standard tobacco, cherry, menthol, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, cotton candy, bubble gum, apple and grape.

In addition to rechargeable batteries, the starter kit also features a wall charger and a USB charger that you can use with a laptop or desktop computer. You will find a carrying case in your kit to hold your E-cig and accessories, such as a lanyard, which ties around your neck and lets you transport your E-cig and vape when you're away from home.

User manuals are a vital part of your E-cig kit, providing all the information you need from inserting your flavour cartridges into the E-cig, to controlling the amount of nicotine that is released from the device's atomizer. Your warranty is also included in the starter kit, describing the protections you have if your E-cig malfunctions.
