Electronic Cigarettes - Still Illegal?

Recommended Posts

Hi

I see electronic cigarettes being sold everywhere on the streets now - well in touristy areas.

Are they still illegal in Thailand? I want to bring quite a bit of e-liquid and stuff into Thailand

Thanks

How many gallons are we talking about here? If you can see it sold everywhere why bother? Besides TIT, even if illegal you can still buy everywhere.

Still illegal , but they do sell them in the Thai websites as well , Ovale brand or something like that. However their e liquids are expensive and taste awful .

I got my supply from overseas through the internet. Btw , never touch an analogue cig since started 4 months ago.

Hello,

What is the cheapest price you have found in Thailand for EGO EC4 1100 battery ?

Are devices from another brand any better ? (and cheaper?)

Thanks.

What are the prices of the e-cigarette and liquids anyway, on Sukhumvit sidewalk?

Any brand recommendation?

Because the e-juice sold in Thailand, from what i have seen is all horrible chinese stuff. Dekang, Hengsung and other brands. This stuff is made without health regulations and who knows what it contains. There are many much better suppliers in the US that produce juice, often nicotine is extracted from organic tobacco. And the chinese flavours are truly awful. Good american brands, vixen vapours, tastyvapors.us etc.

I suggest you start with an Ego twist battery and charger and a Vision Stardust Standard Resistance Clearomiser! Theres a farang in Pattaya who sells the Joyetec stuff hes listed as a supplier on the joytec site (they make the Ego twist) - Stardust clearomiser have to buy online only about $4. Total price for all this about $30.

Ecigs that look like cigarettes are terrible. Very poor battery power, low vapor production and not a satisying vape. You need to carry many batteries have several chargers the whole thing is a pain. Also most of these ones you see sold on the street you need to buy cartomisers for that brand (cartomisers is the bit the nicotine juice goes in) and they are not refillable. You need a system that you can refill. Thats why i suggest Ego twist as a good starting point. You can buy all this from Healthcabin.net (china) but dont buy juice from there its terrible chinese made stuff

Hello,

The brand of EC4 vapor cigarette is Joytech ?

What is Ego twist battery ?

It seems that there is no cheap Thai shop to buy electronic cigarette online ? Do you usually get caught and have to pay customs when you buy something from China ?

Thanks.

no need to waste money to buy those branded set. the ovale, ego set etc come with shit and leaking atomizer

get a ego bypass battery and cartomizer. this set up cost you less than 1000 baht. bypass is good as you could vape while its charging from your laptop or desktop, especially important if you lack of a backup batt. no necessarily a need to get to complex set up such as variable voltage etc etc start simple, less things to screw up. ego twist is okay but no bypass and the variable volt setting is not accurate after batt is less than 50% charge. i would suggest start simple, once you get the cilk, move to a more reliable variable unit such as provari

i suggest going over the ecig forum for some research

an incorrect information! i have three different brands which do not lack battery power (measured 112 draws).

my problem is to find refill liquids which really taste like cigarette smoke and not like cold rattlesnake farts.

Getting a bit confused with all the different names posted: Ego twist, Ego battery, etc.

The site of Joyetec is not working well either, i.e. not loading all pages fully.

Perhaps any of the user can recommend what product to get, i.e. what automizer/clearomiser and what cartomizer/juice/liquids.

If you should buy the hardware from Healthcabinet, yet not the consumables from there, then where do you buy the consumables (cartomizers/juice)?

Thanks!

I'm not sure of the forum rules on posting external links, I hope I've done it right.

I would direct you to THIS forum There is loads of information and the people are nice if you ask questions.

Beware of getting anything from China - I was given a brand new knock of Ego-C and the atomiser lasted 4 days, the battery 2 weeks. Total rubbish. I get my supplies from Liberty Flights in England. Never had a problem with them, short delivery once, I sent an email and it was in the post the following day. I am really fortunate (and really grateful) to have some very good friends who visit Chiang Mai regularly and they are generous enough to have have the things are shipped to their address and they bring them in their luggage.. I haven't had anything delivered to Thailand but I can't see why they wouldn't do it. Pretty much everything is much cheaper there than here in Thailand

I was desperate once, thought I had a spare atomiser but didn't so I bought one from the authorised Ovale distributor in Chiang Mai at for 700 baht. At the same time I ordered some from a distributor in Malaysia, e-rokok. I had an order delivered to a friend in Malaysia who mailed them on to me. 100 ringgit or 1,000 baht for 5 (FIVE). Genuine products, authorised dealer in North East Malaysia. The Thai distributor who delivered my 700 baht atomiser didn't believe me, but he got his iPhone out and logged on to the site and saw them for 22 ringgit each - I got them for 20 as I bought 5. I think he was maybe thinking of getting his wholesale supplies from them. Unfortunately the dealer won't mail to overseas addresses. Liberty Flights is good and cheap, but not as cheap as the one in Malaysia.

I've been on Ego-T then Ego-C for almost 2 years. I usually have one real ciggie a week just to prove to myself that there's no difference and I really don't want to smoke, but for the last couple of weeks I've been having more like 1 a day. I can hear myself wheezing as I'm going to sleep and 'The Cough' has returned in all it's glory.

I buy the juice from China, I don't mind the menthol flavour. I get 10x50ml bottles of both Dekang and Hengsung, mix them together add a good slurp of 50mg plain nicotine to give it an extra kick then put into small bottles as required. I put a couple of menthol flakes in a separate bottle so it's really minty if I feel like a change. I've got a delivery on the way now, quite cheap from Vapour Hawk but I wouldn't buy anything except the juice as it's all knock-off and totally useless.

I really recommend the Ego-C, better than Ego-T as the heating unit on atomisers are separate and much therefore cheaper to run as you're not throwing the whole thing away. The Malaysian site didn't have any in stock when I emailed them last week, but had 6 different brands of atomiser that he said were all good and would fit the battery so I ordered one of each. My friend in Malaysia posted them last Thursday, I'm looking forward to testing them one after another to see which is the best. It really is a case of looking around, hunting on the internet and working out the postage to Thailand. With the eCig itself, you really get what you pay for, but the difference in price in various countries is huge. Compare 1 for 700 baht with 5 for 1,000 baht. No contest at all. Some of the EU and US distributors charge huge amounts.

I recommend that anyone interested should get a starter kit from Liberty Flights or another distributor (I haven't found any others cheaper). The starter kit for the Ego-C contains 2 whole ecigs (2 batteries and 2 atomisers) and (I think) 10 heating unts as well as a USB charger. From memory about GBP45, but they often have discount codes which are elusive and hard to find. There may be better things out there now, the atomisers on their way to me might be good and available in starter kits.

Experimentation is the only way - what I like is not necessarily what you like or what Jim Smith or Fred Bloggs likes. Taste is a subjective and individual thing, and there are huge difference in the taste of juices available. Try small bottles, they aren't expensive.

@konini

Thanks!

So in short, I should buy the e-cig from Liberty Flights and the refills from Malaysia!?

But erokok doesn't deliver by mail to Thailand............

And the e-cig from UK, the Janty eGo-C, is about THB 3,500 (GBP 69,99 according to the site), before postage.

You wouldn't happen to have any feedback on the e-cigs sold in Thailand?

Will check out that forum too, thanks!
