How to choose an e-cigarette battery

If you’re new to e-cigarettes, you are probably pretty confused at all the options you have. Just look at batteries as an example. You have the small cigalike batteries, larger, ego batteries, then complicated mods. How do you choose the battery that’s right for you? That is what I hope to help you with in this article.

There are people that would argue that the more powerful batteries are the best. However, I disagree. As far as I’m concerned, it all boils down to how much you vape, and what setup you prefer.

Let’s start with cigalike batteries. These are small batteries about the same size as a regular cigarettes (hence the name, ‘cigalike’). I believe that for the majority of users, they will be sufficient. Most typically, you would use these types of batteries with cartridges or cartomizers that contain e-liquid. In many cases, you can also use these kinds of batteries with small tanks called clearomizers. This battery is the easiest to use, and a great choice for beginners as well as experienced vapers. Cigalikes are the type of e-cig batteries that I myself use. I personally buy my cigalike batteries from a store called Halo Cigs. After trying a half dozen or so batteries, I have found that this company has the best quality and longest lasting batteries of this type. I particularly like Halo because they offer many online coupons I can take advantage of, such as the ones available at

If you happen to chain vape or vape quite a bit throughout the day, you’ll find that cigalikes do not last very long for you. For such people, a larger battery, such as they Ego batteries, are an excellent choice. What I like about Ego batteries is that they are quite simple to use, similar to cigalike batteries. Also, Ego batteries are a great complement for tanks and larger clearomizers. Most people agree that vaping by using a clearomizer gives you more flavor and a better vaping experience. This is something you’ll need to test for yourself. I myself do agree that using a clearomizer makes for a superior vaping experience, but it also depletes your e-liquid much more quickly, so it ends up being a bit of a tradeoff. Incidentally, I read recently that e-liquids can be dangerous, especially if you have children, so make sure you exercise caution when handling them.

Last but not least, there are mods, which are the largest and most complex e-cigarette batteries. I must warn you that while these batteries seem quite impressive, they are not for everyone. They typically have variable wattage/voltage and other dials you can adjust. Mods are not cheap, and you’ll also have to spend more on accessories and e-liquids if you transition to using this type of battery. Nevertheless, mods are highly favored by many vapers, and you may find yourself preferring one if you value a highly customized vaping experience.

As you can see, there is quite a bit to vaping. Fortunately, there are plenty of sites and articles you can read to learn more about the various batteries and accessories that are available. Hopefully, this article helped you get a general idea of what your options are when it comes to choosing an e-cigarette battery.
