Chinese pharmacist Hong Liq created the first e-cigarette in 2004, wanting to help himself quit smoking. His father's addiction to nicotine had killed him, so he worked for a long time to find a harmless alternative. Little did he realise at the time that he was giving rise to an industry which would see the birth of a whole subculture of "vapers". Now vaping has become such a mass phenomenon that it is heard even in remote villages where men are still smoking "samokrutki" of tobacco in the garden. Entering the specialized shop can stand with a jaw drooping: the model "vape" and accessories for them so much that sometimes it's easier to choose a car or computer than an e-cigarette. To make your task a little easier, we've put together the 10 most popular e-cig models for a range of prices and features. There won't be any expensive devices here, but we've decided to leave out the disposable ones for a couple of hundred too. The ranking is up to date for 2019.
