I ordered the express starter kit from Pure for $19.99 and liked it a lot. They were out of the Nutty flavor when I first ordered but have it now and I love the taste of those carts. I am going to buy the full starter kit now but was gl…

Pure Cigs is a good solid brand that has a variety of options to fit all vaping styles. While there are a few small things they could improve, overall this brand seems to have a lot of promising designs. They have kits ranging from $15.99 to $69.99, so they are definitely an affordable option if you are shopping for an e-cig on a tight budget. The Pure Cigs website is easy to use and you can easily find what you are looking for with instant chat support available 24/7 if you have issues.

The Pure Cigs XL Starter Kit

The most popular Pure Cigs product is the XL Starter Kit that is unlike any other two-piece electronic cigarette in the industry. It features a 650mAh battery that provides three times the battery life of a standard e-cig battery. The cartridges on the Pure Cigs XL are the equivalent of nearly 3 packs of cigarettes. Basically, you can smoke, or “vape”, nine packs before ever recharging. This e-cig has a really nice design with a little metal piece on the tip that unscrews to show the charging slot. When you aren’t charging it up, you just screw the cover on and it hides the charging slot. This is a nice addition to the e-cig design.

There is also a great safety feature built in that I have been looking forward to for quite a while now. It has a lock mechanism to prevent the battery from turning on when you don’t want it to. To activate the e-cig you push it three times and to deactivate it for storage, you push it three times again. It is great to never have to worry about my e-cig turning on when I don’t want it to. When you lock the e-cig, it will light green three times. When you unlock it, it will flash red, orange, and then green kind of like a traffic light.

In terms of usability, this e-cig kit is a good choice. It’s easy to operate and it gives you good solid vapor. The XL model had a relatively strong throat hit and I enjoyed the Toasted Tobacco flavor. It was full-flavored and a little nutty, so I think it would be a good match for any heavy tobacco smoker.

Pure Cigs G4 Starter Kit

Much like the other two-piece e-cigarettes, Pure Cigs eCigs produce a solid amount of vapor. While it isn’t as much as Green Smoke, it is more than most of the other brands. It has a smooth draw as well that makes it easy for anyone to use regardless of their experience with electronic cigarettes. The best part of the two-piece design is zero maintenance. Each cartridge comes with an atomizer included and it all gets tossed in the garbage after the cartridge is empty.

Currently, Pure Cigs offers Tobacco, Menthol Ice, Cherry, Nutty, and Risque as their flavors. For those looking to replicate actual cigarettes this shouldn’t be a problem because their Menthol Ice and Tobacco flavors are very good and the nutty flavor even resembles traditional cigarettes taste as well. Pure Cigs does a great job focusing on assisting everyday smokers in their transition to this cigarette alternative. The best part, you can buy the rechargeable $39.99 kit before you make the commitment to a more expensive kit.

Pure Cigs Elite Kit

For the more advanced vaper that wants more than a basic e-cig, the Pure Cigs Elite Kit offers a more customizable experience. This one has a little LED screen on the battery so you can see your puff count and voltage. It also has plus and minus buttons that allow you to adjust the battery voltage to give you the throat hit and vapor production you are most comfortable with. It’s kind of like an ego system with the variable voltage feature and it comes with the same long cartridges that you get with the XL model. This one will give you clouds of vapor and you can get a fully customizable throat hit by adjusting your voltage according to your personal preferences.


Pure Cigs also offers some nice accessories. Our favorite is the Pure Pack charging case. It can charge your batteries up to five times and carries two batteries and 6 refills at once so you can keep all your supplies together in one convenient place. The only thing we didn’t like was that our Pure Pack didn’t light up when you plug it in. This is one area that Pure Cigs could improve, but overall we loved this accessory.

Flavor Options

Pure Cigs offers a good selection of flavors and cartridges come in black or brown. Their current flavor options include: Virginia Tobacco, Tobacco, Menthol, Vanilla, Cherry, Risque, and Nutty Blend. You can also get these flavors in the XL option.
