As electronic cigarettes become more popular, there are more e-cigarettes to choose from. When you choose between e-cigs, you mainly look at price for the starter kits and how much cartridges will cost. Starter kits will give you everything you need and after that you will most likely just buy cartridges or cartomizers refills. Prices and quality are the deciding factors for the most part. These three companies all make e-cigs and sell cartridges and electronic cigarette accessories.

EverSmoke Pro Starter Kit
EverSmoke On/Off or Automatic Battery Choice
EverSmoke has a unique feature that I have not seen before in electronic cigarettes. Their batteries have a choice of automatic or a manual on/off switch. The automatic is what is most common with e-cigs. When you puff on an e-cigarette, they automatically go on and you are able to get the nicotine and then they go off. Usually, with the automatic battery, you might have to puff once long and hard to get the vapor going.
With a manual battery, you turn it on and then you turn it off when you are done. The advantage to the manual switch is you will get thicker nicotine vapor quickly.
Their short e-cig battery lasts for about 250 puffs and their long e-cig battery lasts for 350 puffs. The manual on/off batteries last about 25% less but will create more vapor.

EverSmoke Customer Comments
EverSmoke has good customer comments. Customers were pleased with the customer service they received, the flavors of their cartridges and the amount of vapor with the manual batteries.
- "I am a very happy electronic cigarette user with EverSmoke. Their customer service is great, and if you have questions, don't hesitate to call. The products are everything I want in e-cigs, and I can rest every day with a clear conscience that I am not doing horrible things to my health with my habit. Another great thing about these is how you can customize your usage. I smoke far less often and I gradually lowered my nicotine to 12mg with these." - Inwood10 (CigReviews.com)
- "I bought the Manual style e-cig from Eversmoke because I heard it was the best for creating a huge vapor. The throat hit is powerful, and their Flavor max flavors are rich and intense. A lot of other companies fail big time when it comes to making a battery that functions well and can still create of big vapor cloud. Vapor is so important because its the essence of smoking e-cigarettes; eversmoke creates the best!" - Johan (CigReviews.com)

There are many customer comments on the Blu Cigs website, where customers have rated them a 4 out of 5.
- "I have been using E-cig for a couple of months. I am satisfied with the results. However I do see a problem, about two cartridges out of every box seems to be a dud (get nothing when used). I was told to roll the cartridge between my hands for about the time it takes to watch a commercial of TV. Sometimes it works sometimes not. The product will be flawless if they resolve this problem."
- "Been using the Blu E-cig for a week. It was way better than expected. The classic tobacco and magnificent menthol taste good. Haven't tried any of the other favors yet. It is quickly replacing my regular cigs, . Like that I can choose different levels of nicotine. No mess, no frills, like the charge pack that is same size as old hard pack of smokes. If you are considering changing over, give it a shot. You won't he disappointed."
