It’s a real fact that electronic cigarettes are getting cheaper and cheaper as the industry progresses and more brands appear on the market each month. Gone are the days when there were only a few online companies which imported the devices from China and sold them for big profits. Cigavette is a relatively new company but it has quickly become one of the industry’s revelations of late 2013 and the beginning of 2014.
Cigavette is specialized in cig-a-like devices and it’s fighting a big war with all the competitors in the same segment with some innovative ideas and marketing concepts. It does not have a wide variety of starter kits but instead it focuses all attention on a few products on which it stakes its reputation. Besides the affordable kits, it also sells disposables, e-cigars and e-hookahs. It does not sell any e-liquid and the products only come in two flavors: tobacco and menthol.
Design and Packaging
This is a company with a main goal of helping smokers transition to electronic cigs by producing a device similar to a regular smoke. The design of their devices is clean and simple and it’s addressed mostly to former smokers that are looking to make the switch. They flagship product is the Premiere Starter Kit and it’s one of the most affordable up to date. The design is simple but rather surprising. It looks like an analog cigarette pack, it’s fully black and the brand name is colored according to the nicotine strength you choose. The devices mimic tobacco cigarettes in shape and size and they even have a colored LED tip that lights up each time you inhale. All in all the design is not spectacular but the build quality is very good and the automatic battery is very responsive.

There are two options for color: white and black and you can also choose which kind of light the LED tip would emit: Orange, Red, and Blue.
Responsiveness is pretty good, and it does not fire accidentaly in your pocked when exposed to loud noises or wind. It produces fair amount of vapor and there is a mild throat hit.
While the type of brand that only wants to address beginners or casual vaper, it does not have a lot of flavors. Cigavette likes to keep it simple and you only have the option of tobacco or menthol.
