Price: $12 – $49
Bedford Slims makes one of the most simplistic ecigs on the market, making them a perfect device for anyone new to electronic cigarettes.
The Bedford Slims Vapourette kit comes with only the essential accessories needed to get started: battery, cartridge, and chargers. The kits are priced as low as $12, which makes them one of the lowest-priced ecig kits on the market (and even cheaper if you’re using one of their discount codes).
Bedford Slims isn’t among the top ecig companies, but they do offer a simple and affordable kit for a good performing ecig which is a good option for starters. It won’t rock your world, but it will get the job done!
Before I decided to buy Bedford Slims I did some research about the company. Actually the company is not very famous in the electronic cigarette world .This can mislead you into developing opinions that they are not worth trying. I’m a living example who tried the cigs and the result that I was able to get out of the electronic cigarette is great. Actually, the company that manufactures the ecigs is located in Williamsburg; Brooklyn- Bedford Avenue. The name slims was developed due to the tendency of many people wearing slim jeans in the area when the company manufacturing the ecigs was founded. The vapourette comes with two automatic batteries that start immediately as you puff the e cig, a total of five cartridges and a USB charger is also provided in the pack. I was able receive all this in the pack that I ordered and they were in good condition. The cost of the kit is also attractive; actually the price was among the considerations that made me deicide to try the brand.

Packaging and design
The BedfordSlims starter kit is packed in a soft board that protects it against any damage during transportation. I opened the box carefully and looked into it. The content that I was able to see was great, what I was able to see inside was a pen like device that resembled ordinary cigarette closely. The size of the box is also small enough to be equated to the size of ordinary pack of cigarettes that I used to smoke before turning to the electronic ones. Actually at first I doubted the value of the device due to its size. When I first heard about electronic cigarette I thought of something big like ordinary electronics that I’m used to. The small electronic cigarette rally works despite the size, it is really resembles a cigarette which makes me feel like am having ordinary cigarette in style.
There are basically three nicotine straights available for this brand; they include non-nicotine strength that does not contain nicotine, light which contains 22 mg nicotine, and full flavored nicotine which contain 24 mg of nicotine. I opted for 24 mg strength of nicotine and it really works for me. I do not have to overuse the cartridge yet I’m able to enjoy enough nicotine like the one I used to enjoy in smoking ordinary cigarette. By the fact that there are different strengths available I’m planning to turn to 12 mg of nicotine then non-nicotine later for me to be able to achieve my plan to quit smoking.
Flavors and vapor
With vapor production I have no complains. The ecig really perform when it comes to vapor production. With every puff of Bedford Slims am able to enjoy strong throat hit that is really satisfying. There is no any point that I have ever thought of turning to the old packets that I used to smoke since I bought the Bedford ecig.
When it comes to flavors Bedford Slims only provide four flavors. The flavors include dark roast which provide coffee flavor, vanilla flavor, clove flavor and methanol. I prefer vanilla which comes with full tobacco strength. Unlike the old days where I used to smoke ordinary tobacco now I can enjoy being close to people after taking my puffs, this is mainly because people will be able to smell vanilla instead the strong tobacco smell that can end up irritating others especially those close to me. To those who will like to try Bedford Slims it is a great benefit to you because you can always decide on the best flavor that you will like to enjoy while puffing nicotine.
Battery life of the ecigs
The batteries available in Bedford Slims are automatic. They work in such a way that they are activated whenever you puff the ecigs. The life of the battery is also impressive, they can last up to three hours of continuous puffing .When I’m using the my ecig am able to make use of a fully charged battery for the whole day. The tip usually flashes when the battery charge has dropped hence alerting me to charge it again.
