Price: $24.95 – $29.95
Zig-Zag E-Cig already has a valuable reputation, having sold cigarette-related products for over 100 years. Most famous for products such as cigarette rolling papers, the company has recently launched a range of items for electronic cigarette users, with a number of different cartomizers, carrying cases, starter kits, e-devices, batteries and accessories available for purchase.
The ZigZagecigs.com website is easy to use and provides good amount of information about their products. Zig-Zag e-cig is also renowned for its excellent customer service, with a number of ways an individual can get in touch with the brand in the event of a query or problem. Customers can also take advantage of a 30 day return policy, as well as a lifetime warranty.
Here’s our review of Zig-Zag e-cig disposables as well as the express kits, which we have tested over the past couple of weeks.
Zig-Zag™ company background
The original Zig-Zag is based in France, having been founded in Paris in 1879. ZigZag was launched by the Braunstein Brothers who opened a paper production plant in order to manufacture cigarette rolling papers. The company has since garnered a loyal customer base and increased in popularity, even winning a gold medal during the Paris Universal Exposition in 1900.
Because of the many years the company has been in operation, they have a wealth of experience that makes them stand out from their competitors. The company once referred to the introduction of vaping as one of the most significant events to happen in the history of the tobacco industry.
Vapor production and battery life of Zig-Zag e-Cigs
The vapor production of Zig-Zag disposable electronic cigarettes is up there with the top brands in terms of quality and performance. In our review of the product, we didn’t notice any irritation to the throat from the vapor, which is always a good sign.
Water vapor is free from ash, tar, and the dangerous chemicals found in regular cigarette smoke, meaning that an electronic device, such as one purchased through this brand, can provide a safe and healthier alternative to conventional cigarette brands.
Batteries purchased from ZigZagecigs.com online store are durable, high-quality and long-lasting, although how long they will last will depend on the amount of water vapor generated and the frequency of use during this period.
For me personally, the battery on the disposables lasted 3-4 hours of non-stop use or about 1 day of regular use. You can expect the battery to last about the same for you if not longer. The battery from the rechargeable express kit lasted a little longer but that’s normal since rechargeable batteries are engineered for performance. The charging was quick too.
The batteries can be charged via the company’s Smart Charger, which enables you to charge your device at home. This charging device is small enough to transport into a bag or suitcase with ease, and is available with a variety of starter kits which are manufactured by Zig-Zag e-cigs.
2 simple options to get you started: Express Kit and Disposable
Express Kit: The Zig-Zag Express Starter Kit (priced at $24.95) comes equipped with a battery, flavored cartridge of your choice, and the aforementioned Smart Charger, providing everything you need to start vaping. This kit is ideal if you are making the change to an electronic cigarette brand after smoking more conventional tobacco cigarettes for a prolonged time, making the transition easy and more cost-effective by saving you money. Purchasing a starter kit works out a lot less expensive than if you were to order the equipment required for vaping separately.
Flavored cartridges come in a variety of flavors, including traditional tobacco, similar to regular cigarette brands, and menthol flavored cartridges, providing a fresh and minty flavor. Both of these flavors are available for purchase in differing levels of nicotine strength. The Flavor Combo pack includes five additional flavor options including Colombian, Caribbean, Mango, Vanilla, and Clove. All flavors are made in the USA from high quality ingredients.
Disposable Kit: The Zig-Zag Disposable Electronic Cigarettes are the perfect single-use kit for beginners. The disposables come in a 5-pack, priced at just $29.95 (which comes out to about $6 per disposable). Each disposable offers about 180-220 puffs or about 1-2 days of normal use. Currently, they are offered in two flavors: traditional tobacco and menthol.
The company can be reached via phone, email or directly on their Facebook page, letting you to chat with a representative in case you have any questions about electronic cigarettes.
There are a number of different payment options a customer can choose from when making a purchase on the Zig-Zag e-cig website, including credit and debit card options, and an electronic receipt will be sent directly to the customer’s email address after they have placed their order. ZigZag runs a number of different promotions and offers throughout the year, allowing you to save even more money on your purchase.
If you’re not completely satisfied with the quality of a product you have purchased from the company, you can take advantage of a 30-day money back guarantee. A limited warranty, which covers up to five replacements of a product purchased from the online store, is also available – but I doubt you’ll ever need that! Alternatively, you can browse through our ecig reviews and comparison on different brands and choose a product that offers what you’re looking for.
- Very affordable at $6 per disposable or $25 for the express kit
- Great variety of flavors for the rechargeable express kit
- High vapor production, comparable to top brands
- Reputable company with over 100 years of history
- Manufactured by V2 Cigs, one of the best e-cig manufacturers worldwide
- Good battery life and vapor
- The disposables are only offered in two flavors (menthol and traditional tobacco)
- Does not offer a comprehensive starter kit
- More range of nicotine levels would be useful (currently offering only 1.8% and 2.4%)
Zig-Zag e-Cig has teamed up with V2 eCigs to make some of the best disposable electronic cigarettes on the market. Although it would be great if they offered more flavors and wider range of starter kits, the products that are on offer at the time of this review are already impressive and great for new vapers who need an affordable way to cut down on tobacco.
