As we mentioned above, the vape industry has been around for 15 years now. During this time, no e-cigarette device has been consistently the best vape for beginners for more than a few years. Technology is moving too fast for any one product to maintain a permanent lead. While a particular brand or product is climbing to the top, the next big thing is already being developed in some company’s lab. If you’re reading this in 2025, the next big thing may have emerged, replacing single-use vapes as the best vape for beginners.
However, no matter how the e-cigarette industry changes, we can say with certainty that the best e-cigarettes for beginners will always have three qualities.
- They are easy to use. Long gone are the days of reading the instruction manual or asking for help online before using an e-cigarette for the first time. No e-cigarette device will be as successful with beginners as a disposable e-cigarette unless it is as easy to use as a disposable e-cigarette. By the time you take your first e-cigarette out of the box, you should already intuitively know how to use it.
- They come in a variety of delightful flavors. Surveys have shown time and time again that those who successfully switch from smoking to vapes do not use e-liquids that taste like cigarettes, but rather sweet e-liquids that taste like fruit, candy, and desserts. No e-cigarette product can be as successful with new users as single-use vapes unless it offers the same variety of flavors.
- They deliver nicotine effectively. Single-use e-cigarettes contain as much nicotine per puff as regular cigarettes, which is very important when you’re trying to switch from smoking to e-cigarettes. This means that when you first buy an e-cigarette, you can put the cigarette down forever and switch with minimal disruption. If any new e-cigarette ultimately replaces single-use e-cigarettes, it must deliver nicotine with the same efficiency.
