If you want a basic e-cig that is high on functionality and well known for quality, Cigirex might be the brand for you. The Cigirex e-cigs are pretty popular in retail stores, but if you want to best price, you should buy them online. They have a great website and you can sometimes get good deals or use online coupon codes for the best savings. I recently tried a Cigirex starter kit and the disposables for the first time. Here is my personal review…
My Review of the Cigirex Starter Kits
Cigirex has five different kits that you can choose from. Their basic kits include Regular, Menthol, Light, and Zero Nicotine options. If you are a heavy vaper looking for a more extreme vape, the Black Ops kits will be your favorite. Here is how the nicotine content is broken down for each kind of Cigirex kit:
- Black Ops – 18mg
- Regular – 16mg
- Menthol – 16mg
- Light – 11mg
- Zero – 0mg
All of the kits are differentiated by color so you can easily tell which is which. Regular is red, light is gold, menthol is green, zero is blue, and black ops is black. I decided to try the Cigirex Light kit. It had a pretty awesome design with a flip top box. It wasn’t a charging case, but it was still a stylish, convenient way to store your e-cigs on the go.
Every kit includes a battery, two cartridges, and a USB charger. If you want a wall charger, you have to buy it separately because it isn’t included in any of the kits. Cigirex says each pack is equal to 70 cigarettes. So basically, each cartridge is going to last as long as 1.5 packs of analog cigarettes. After trying my Cigirex Light, I think that’s pretty accurate.
The e-cig itself is lightweight and soft. It has a very realistic feel so it would be a good transition e-cig for smokers who are just dabbling in vaping for the first time. The tip also lights up red so it looks authentic. The taste was enjoyable and the e-cig had an easy draw. I really liked the throat hit because it was a little mild without sacrificing on vapor. The vapor production was good. Overall, my Cigirex Light would definitely be above average and it’s a good deal for just $30.
My Review of Cigirex Disposables
Next, I tried some of the Cigirex Disposables. These come in both Regular and Slim 100 options. The slims are similar in design and size to a Virginia Slims cigarette. In terms of appearance, I liked the Slims best so I tried them first.
The Slims come in a nice package with caps on both ends. The label says the disposable slim will last as long as two packs of analog cigarettes. It’s a simple one piece e-cig and like their starter kits, it has a soft design that feels pretty realistic. It’s very lightweight and it felt nice in my hand. I tried both the Regular and Menthol flavors. I’m not sure if the regular cigirex slim was just a dud or if it’s typical, but I wasn’t happy with that one at all. It had to be primed forever before anything happened and even once I got a little vapor, it was far from satisfying. The menthol slim 100 was a lot better. It had more vapor, but the throat hit was pretty strong for my taste.
After the Slims, I also tried the regular Cigirex disposable. This model has 16mg of Nicotine and is about the size of an NJoy King. Like the other Cigirex products I tried, it had the soft squishy design and felt nice and lightweight in my hand. Overall, I was much happier with this disposable than I was with the Slims. It had a ton of vapor, but the throat hit wasn’t as harsh or overbearing.
Of all the disposable e-cigarettes I’ve tried, the Cigirex really ranks high in terms of being close to the cigarette experience. The vapor was pretty identical to the amount of smoke you get from taking a drag on a cigarette. The design was a good copy of an analog cigarette, and the flavor was nice. This would definitely be a good e-cigarette for someone who is just trying vaping for the first time.
