Back To The Tried And True

West Coast Vape Supply

If you were informed enough and put in the initial research for electronic cigarettes, chances are you started off with the tried and true “eGo”. The eGo is more sought after than the stick style e-cigs that started this craze, mainly because of its more common 510 threaded connection, its ability to be used with an assortment of cartomizer tanks and more importantly, the longer battery life. Though the eGo is the much wiser choice, the stick style or traditional cigarette look a-like still has its place and quite the market as well.

The eGo can sustain the most moderate of e-cigarette users, but some move on from its default regulated 3.3 volt output and usually tend to migrate to a much more powerful device, such as an advanced personal vaporizer which can typically deliver up to 6 volts, holds a larger battery that can be recharged externally and in some cases, has an abundant amount of built-in features for safety, power, power control and information. While this advanced e-cig seems to be the more satisfactory and dominate choice, many electronic cigarette users or ‘vapers’ as we call ourselves, are making our way back to the tried, and true… eGo.

These sleek tubular designed eGo’s have always been the time-tested and proven to be reliable electronic cigarette. It was first introduced to the market back some 4 years ago in mid 2008 by Joyetech, a large manufacturing company out of Shenzhen, China. The battery usually held the average vaper for the bigger part of the day, but its low voltage output couldn’t keep up with some of the power-hungry vapers. Joyetech, the creators of the original eGo style and design, tried to follow the crowd of vapers who were looking for more e-liquid holding volume, like a tank. The eGo-T for eGo Tank started being produced and then after came a slow and steady drip of eGo based products. Joyetech grew this family of eGo line products and then just when they’ve seemed to slip from their game after releasing the less popular eGo-C, an eGo with its own renewed and uniquely designed changeable atomizer system, they then released another renowned eGo improvement, the eGo-C “Twist”, which has said to be the last in the eGo line.

The eGo has obviously been used more than enough time, backed with a plethora of vapers who will tell you the eGo is the best electronic cigarette, but the more veteran of vapers will tell you different… that is until they experienced the eGo-C Twist. The Twist was first announced on April 13, 2012 and after a few months later when it was released, it immediately became a big hit in the e-cigarette market. The Twist was your typical eGo tubed battery design, with a literal ‘Twist’. The bottom chrome cap that you’re used to seeing on eGo’s now twist between the markings of 3.2 volts and up to 4.8 volts. This new design gives the user the ability to switch between multiple voltages at anytime, now offering not only the small pocket friendly, outstanding quality and beautiful look, but also the power you once left the eGo for.

With just this amazing over-haul of the device that some of us started with and some still using to this day, the eGo line has evolved and proven to us once more that it isn’t just the overall best electronic cigarette, but it’s an overall growing electronic cigarette. No matter if you’re just a beginner vaper or an experienced veteran… you’ll make your way back… back to the tried and true.

  1. I started off with the v2 kr808s. They were fair for cig a likes but only lasted three months. Shortly after I started using an Ego C upgrade with xl and mega carto’s and am now vaping a Smoktech Zmax version two.

  2. That’s about how it’s always went – start on stick style, move to eGo, then a APV. Now days many are jumping straight to an eGo or even an APV. – Thanks for sharing.

  3. Started with a Riva 1100 which i believe is similar to an eGo, I now have an APV, It’s good to fiddle with and to experiment with but i still find the Riva has the best flavour, throat hit and vape production, without ever experiencing nasty tastes.

    I suppose I’ll need to play around with the APV for much longer to understand how to get the right results.

    Good luck to all you new vapers out there, there’s some monster flavours out there to try.
