This is one of the cheapest e-cigarettes you’ll find out there at the moment, and on amazon.co.uk, it is only £2.99 for the tank (or atomiser), battery, charger and a FREE bottle of e-liquid. Once you’ve been an e-cigarette smoker for a while, you’ll appreciate how handy these ‘cheapies’ can be in a sticky situation, especially with express delivery, and for £2.99, it was only fair that I gave them a go to see if they were the best e-cigarette. Let’s find out…
eGo CE4 Shisha Pen
It’s not exactly a ‘starter kit’ that you would find on the likes of the E-Lites website but that doesn’t mean it’s not a good deal. The tank style batteries tend to last longer than the slimline, ‘real’ effect e-cigarettes, and on more than one occasion I have found that the battery will last the day until I go home at night where I can use an older e-cig while my tank is on charge. With certain models, I’ve even found that they last the entire day until I go to bed. Don’t worry – you’ll find out about these as well.
You’ll get a charger, battery, tank and a free bottle of e-liquid with your order. It’s not the biggest kit for under £3, you can hardly complain! Even if you don’t like the e-liquid that comes with it, you can buy e-liquid from a number of places giving you plenty of choices. I didn’t like the fact that the e-liquid that came with the eGo CE4 Shisha Pen was medium but luckily, I’ve always got plenty of e-liquid to hand! 😉
As value for money goes, this is a deal that you can’t miss out on, even if you only keep it for emergencies or spare. You’ll pay more than that for most e-cig disposables anyway!
*One thing I do need to point out is that on the Shisha-Pens website, the eGo CE4 is listed at £17.99, and that’s on sale from $39.99. You won’t get the fancy packaging when you buy the £2.99 version, but are you that worried about all that anyway? **
I love the way that Amazon works, especially as it has that little ‘suggested items’ box at the bottom of the item you are looking at. This made it especially handy for me to find extra chargers and batteries. You can buy the mini kit, a USB charger and 5 spare atomisers for £7.78 at the moment… What’s not to love about that?
Does The eGo CE4 Shisha Pen Work?
It’s time to get to the nitty gritty here – does the e-cigarette actually work when you are trying to quit smoking?
Now, don’t get me wrong, as good an e-cigarette as this one is, you must remember the price of it. You get what you pay for in this world and when you are paying so little, you can’t expect the product you get to be of the highest quality. It IS a nice little e-cigarette – the battery will last about four or five hours of ‘regular’ usage, and the tanks are pretty durable. I didn’t notice any serious problems when I was using it. Obviously, the vapour and throat hit that you get from it will depend massively on the type of liquid you are using, the flavours of it, the strengths, etc., but as a whole, the experience was a fairly pleasant one. I can’t say that I have any real issues with it.
Is The eGo CE4 Shisha Pen The Best E-Cig?
As a back-up, this is a great e-cigarette. It is a fairly cheap model, however, so there are bits of it that rattle, and a few bumps and bangs will cause it to break. At the same time, it’s cheap and cheerful and does pretty much what it says on the tin. I have bought a few of these and left them in the car. You’ll be amazed by how many times I leave the battery at home of my regular e-cigarette, or forget to bring a charger. I never seem to forget e-liquid, although I do have a few bottles of the stuff scattered around!
I’d give the eGo CE4 Shisha Pen 3 stars out of 5. They do work and they are cheap and cheerful but long term, there are bigger and better e-cigarettes!
Please note that you can also buy the eGo CE4 Shisha Pen in a starter kit, also available from Amazon for £23.99!
