Best Cig-A-Like For Vapers In Australia

There are so many different types of e-cigarettes available today, so it’s understandable that people can find it all a little overwhelming when they’re just starting out. To help kickstart your vaping journey, we’ve compiled a basic guide to one of the most popular beginner e-cig types, the cig-a-like, and present to you the best cig-a-like for vapers in Australia.

Cig-a-like vaping devices are the perfect e-cigarettes for beginners. This is because they’re extremely easy and simple to use, especially for smokers who are switching to vaping. On top of all this, they're relatively inexpensive compared to other types of vaping devices. Over time, many people graduate from a cig-a-like device to something a little more powerful like a pod vape or vape pen. However, there are people who swear by cig-a-likes and have no intention of changing.

Whether you decide to upgrade to a bigger and more powerful device later on is entirely up to you. However, we recommend that beginners consider starting with cig-a-likes as they provide one of the best introductions to the world of vaping.

What is a Cig-a-Like?

A cig-a-like is an e-cigarette that’s usually a similar shape and size as a regular tobacco cigarette. The very first e-cigarettes ever produced were cig-a-likes, but this term didn’t evolve until later on when new products began hitting the market. It’s assumed that the inventor of the e-cigarette, Hon Lik, chose to emulate a regular cigarette with his e-cig invention because this would make it easier for smokers to accept the product and use it to quit.

As the vaping industry grew and people began using new products like vape pens and pod systems, the term “cig-a-like” was coined to distinguish smaller, classic e-cigs from larger devices like vaporizer pens.

We believe that the cig-a-like is the ideal starting point for many beginner vapers that are switching over from smoking because they’re very easy to use, highly reliable, and they do a great job of emulating cigarettes without the smoke. There’s no tinkering involved or troubleshooting that’s required before using the device. You simply take it out of the box, attach your cartridge, and off you go. Occasionally, you’ll have to recharge the battery or change the cartridge, but that’s about as much maintenance as is involved.

How Do Cig-a-Likes Work?

Most cig-a-likes consist of two parts: The battery and the cartridge. The battery is what makes the device work. When it detects airflow, the battery switches on and creates resistance to heat up a metal coil in the device. This coil is connected to a wick which gets e-liquid (vaping juice) delivered to it by the cartridge. When this wick heats up, the e-liquid that has soaked into the wick turns into vapour that can be inhaled.

You can use cig-a-like devices just like you would use real cigarettes. The e-liquid contained in the cartridge often contains just as much nicotine as regular cigarettes, and it’s this that makes e-cigarettes a highly effective tool for quitting smoking. Although, unlike with cigarettes, e-liquids like those offered here at Vaper Empire are available in a wide range of nicotine strengths.

The Best Cig-a-Like for Vapers in Australia

Vaper Empire V-Pack II Series E-Cigarette Kit This is the V-Pack II Series cig-a-like kit by Vaper Empire, one of the best e-cigarette kits for new vapers.

With lots of different products available on the market, including several types of cig-a-like devices, it can be difficult finding one to start off with. At Vaper Empire, however, we have designed a product especially for former smokers who are just transitioning to vaping and need a simple product that resembles a cigarette and delivers a nicotine hit---the V-Pack II. The V-Pack II is available in various nicotine strengths, as well as nicotine-free, and comes in multiple flavours.

Very easy to use, low-maintenance, and ideal for use on the go, the V-Pack II is a cig-a-like device and closely resembles a real cigarette. It’s stored in its own portable charging case that itself has been modelled on a cigarette packet. As a super lightweight and slim device, it’s highly discreet and its long battery life is perfect for people who want nicotine hits throughout the day.

Each V-Pack II cig-a-like device is able to deliver around 400 “puffs” before the e-liquid cartridge needs replacing.

The V-Pack II Deluxe Starter Kit includes:

  • 1 portable charging case (1,200 mAh)
  • 2 V-Pack II battery stems (170mAh)
  • 1 USB power cable
  • 1 Australian power adapter
  • 4, 5-pack cartomisers (20 in total)

And even though the V-Pack II uses pre-filled cartridges, there is still a large variety of flavours.

Do You Have to Begin with Cig-a-Likes?

Vaper Empire VIGGO Series Pod Vape The Vaper Empire Viggo Series pod vape is an excellent alternative to cig-a-likes, providing ease of use and enhanced vaping power with the benefits of nicotine salts.

No---you don’t have to. The type of e-cig that you start with is entirely up to you. In fact, many people choose to skip cig-a-like e-cigs entirely and begin with larger and more powerful products such as vape pens.

It’s important to note that this will be an entirely different introductory experience to vaping and may be off-putting to some. If you’re trying to quit smoking, it goes without saying that this is a less than ideal situation. That’s why we recommend starting off with cig-a-likes like our V-Pack II Series so you can ease yourself into vaping rather than jumping right in at the deep end. Another option that we recommend for new vapers is our Viggo Series pod system, which is only slightly larger than our V-Pack II, but noticeably more powerful.

If you’re ready to make the switch from cigarettes to e-cigarettes, our V-Pack II cig-a-like device is truly the best starting point. And as Australia’s premier e-cigarette brand, you know you’re getting an exceptional device that works well and is built to last.
