I noticed the e-cigarettes in my local mall, and then my boyfriend was talking about them, I don't know the brand but they are around 60$ I believe, does anyone know of any e-cigarettes cheaper in price but still worth it?
also; about how long does each e-cigarette last? will they completely stop working or anything?
Welcome couponfork to the forums!
Their are much more experienced members than me to answer your questions, but I thought I would jump start the answers.
First off, how much do you smoke a day?
E-cigarettes have been known to die out after a short time, and the most members on the forum including me tend to go through much more catridges than any of the manufactors claim to, but their definately are ways to get around this, just poke around the forums a little bit and you'll find some more answers.
I am also curious as to what city/state you live in where there is a mall that carrys E-cigs. Another member reporting seeing a kiosk, and I'm wondering if we are going to be seeing a new way of kiosks around malls.
I actually live in Brandon, Florida. It is right around Tampa area the mall is owned by Westfield if that makes any difference. I smoke about 10-14 cigarettes a day, I share a pack with my boyfriend a day, as you can tell I hog them all. We are suffering with money issues, is this a cheaper solution or just as expensive if not more?
Well im not the most experienced e-smoker either.
I have bought from The Electronic Cigarette Company (UK) Ltd (cant post urls yet, but its from pillbox38 on this forum). I know its a EU based store, but I think there is stores in the US selling at the same prices more or less. Take a look at the supliers forum at the bottom.
I have bought a super mini, and a classic, and I think its cheaper than normal smoking. I have been e-smoking for about 3 weeks now.
Initially, it can be much more expensive than cigarettes. I'm about $500 into it between me and my wife and stil haven't quit. Search the forums for what works and buy that. (I didn't do that) If you are commited to quitting and make it the e-cig can be a much cheaper solution.

However, for most satisfying drag and vapour, nothing beats the Classic. I'll be ordering one of those next week, to smoke at home.
This is the main problem: once you start ordering stuff it can be hard to stop! There are so many styles/flavours available. But if you settle on a ciggy you like and maybe a top-up flavour juice to extend cartridge life, then e-smoking should be cheaper than analogue smoking. Gotta figure in the odd replacement parts though (atomisers, batteries).
I'd suggest starting with a DSE901 mini from Puresmoker.com to start you off. That should give you an idea of whether it will work for you. If it does you could do a bit more research about what to do next.
The hardware does break down so be prepared to renew or replace and you will have to stay supplied with eliquid to refill your cartridges when the starter pack ones run out.
I see that you say that money is tight.
What's you life worth.
The cost to e-smoke is more to set up in the UK but after a few moths it works out cheaper I dont know what its like in USA but I would say look at the health costs and do the sums give it a go.
coupon- I'm spending more now buying both ecigs and regular ciggs BUT I am smoking less regular ciggs and that's always a good hting in my book. I smoke LoongTotem ecigs, and I really like them as they produce quite a bit of vapor, and are as small as a real cigg and they last most of hte day without having to refill- however, that taste is blandish (although refilling with a good liquid helps). The brand you probably saw in the mall is I think the 'Vapor51' model which is in essence a LoongTotem that's been rebranded. Of all the mini cigs, these are in my opinion probably htem ost realistic and satisfying for hte reasons I mentioend above- I've tried another mini type before and was very dissappointed as the cartridges were so small they were practically worthless and just frustrating to deal with and a hard draw and very little vapor. That's not to say all minis will be liek htta- but most are according to testimonies on here.
The 901, while still havign a somewhat small cartridge, is a very good starter cigg, and you can pick one up from puresmoker for around $40 or so. If you're lookign for a true mini however, there aren't really many good choices out htere right now besides the LoongTotem as far as vapor, ease of draw, form factor etc. GreenCig is coming out with one soon, we think, and it might be another good alternative
If you go with a 901, be sure to also order a few atomizers and perhaps a couple of batteries- these are cheap enough from puresmoker- around $10 apiece which is much cheaper and just as good as other brands
