Here is our list of the best online vape shops of 2017.
These shops all have their own stand out features, and not all are the same.
Right off the bat, one of the most important factors to us, is good pricing, and any vapor listed here has great pricing.
That is not the only basis upon which we created this list, but we think it is a very strong point, and many agree with us (and our hats are off to you if you pay a little more to support your local store, believe us, they have it tough).
Other aspects considered:
- Fast Shipping
- Great Selection Of Devices, Accessories and Juice, and Trusted Brands
- Incentives, whether just awesome prices, discounts, rewards for being a loyal customer.
- Good customer service
A lot of e cig commerce takes place over the internet. Vapor stores have popped up in big cities across the US, but there are still many parts of the country where e cigs and bigger devices are taboo.
Online vapor stores bring the possibility of vaping to everyone, but vendors configure their catalogues according to an audience they want to reach.
Here is the usual breakdown:
• Brand new vapers
• High-end clients
• Advanced vapers on a budget
• All-purpose starting with eGos, mostly affordable
• E-liquid focused
The best known e cig companies do a lot of their work online or might operate exclusively over the internet. Numerous firms operate out of a physical space and over the worldwide web.
These clients have set out in search of the easiest systems to operate and the ones most like real cigarettes in shape, color, and size. They want items such as the V2 Classic E Cig or Halo G6; Cigavette, 777, South Beach Smoke, or Green Smoke.
It’s easy to find online coupon codes on websites that review e cigs and on forums where real vapers talk about their experiences with electronic cigarettes. Shipping is usually either free or it’s free once a vaper’s order exceeds a certain amount.
Sometimes the deals are best online and this is also a great place to browse selection and information in peace. You are more likely to feel pressured in a real store and also self-conscious about being a brand new vaper, especially if 80% of clients in a shop are more experienced than you are.
Few physical stores carry starter kits at the mini cig level and even if they did, their selection would not be as good as Halo’s, V2’s, or South Beach Smoke’s online menu.
Most e cig vendors carry a selection of eGo e cigs and clearomizers. These are easy to operate but more conspicuous than mini cigs. Popular and recommended brands are Kanger, Joye, Smok, and Aspire.
Clearomizers come in disposable formats or with replaceable atomizers for anything from $2.50 to $12. Batteries range in size from 650 mAh to 1600 mAh and come with a plain old button or a knurled knob for changing voltage. Price can be as low as $12. Be wary of brands that don’t sound familiar.
Many online vapor stores also feature these items in starter kits. These are bundles containing essential items such as a battery (eGo) and clearo, a USB charger, and sometimes a case with a needle-tipped bottle and e liquid. There is usually an assortment of 510-threaded e cigs resembling 808D mini cigs by Halo et al plus one or two disposable e cigs, e hookahs, and/or e cigars.
This is where customers frequently find replacement parts and accessories. An all-purpose online store might carry tactical switches and LED lights. They will always offer a selection of drip tips possibly starting with rubber or acrylic, potentially $25 stainless steel tips.
Stores where selection is cheapest will frequently also sell inexpensive e liquid. They might blend their own. It’s not gourmet stuff but some palates are more discerning than others.
These represent the smallest sector of the vaping world: people prepared to spend $200 on a limited edition mechanical mod before they even buy a battery or tank to go with it. Clients at this end of the business are collectors with advanced vaping skills. They insist on seeing only authentic products, not lower-priced clones of mods and RDAs/RBAs. The top-shelf juice they buy costs at least 80 cents per ml, is typically made by artisans, and is also produced in limited batches.
Advanced on a Budget
A bigger group of consumers enjoys the challenge of operating a mechanical device with no screen or control buttons. They like good juice and beautiful atomizers, but are also aware that paying the rent is more important than buying an authentic Pinoy mechanical mod for $150.
It is typical to see cloned versions of expensive devices on these sites and lots of advanced personal vaporizers with variable voltage and wattage. E liquid selection varies and might include house blends plus some made in FDA-approved labs and others produced in large enough volume to be sold by several distributors.
Several companies started with e juice before adding hardware to their catalogue. They attracted a loyal following; fans content to keep all of their accounts with this juice-blending business.
Browsing the internet for e cig stores is easiest if you know what you are looking for. This will narrow the search to 20 stores or fewer instead of 200 or more. Their websites will be sub-headed to reveal assorted items so your search can widen later, but select a topic like variable watt mods, cigalikes, e liquid, or dripping atomizers. Pick a price range and type this into your search engine.
When your search yields many options, choose the ones that provide contact details. Believe it or not, some firms do not publish an address, email address, or phone number on their websites. There is something strange about this sort of practice. Even though your dealings will be online, a company with no phone numbers, etc. is like a phantom.
You do not have to tough it out with impassible, convoluted, disorganized websites because of the phenomenal amount of choice available. If online organization is so scattered that you feel woozy just searching for batteries, go elsewhere.
Reviews of Online Vapor Stores
It’s not just e cigs, box mods, and juice which are subjected to reviews: companies are also reviewed by customers and professionals. Testimonials refer to excellent customer service, fast shipping speed, and good stock levels or variety plus great pricing. Complaints often center on poor customer service, over-priced stock, lack of stock, and slow shipping.
