Hey there, it’s me Dawn, again! Thanks for stopping by! Today we are going to chat about a few terms used often in the electronic cigarette industry. The main one we will focus on is the term Cig-a-Like. I have used this term in a few places on this blog and I think it is important that we all understand the difference between a Cig-a-like device, which is a 1st generation device vs other types of devices. I get a ton of questions on this so I will lay it out in question and answer format. I hope you get a lot out of this!
What is a Cig-a-Like? A Cig-a-Like is an electronic cigarette specifically designed to mimic the rituals of traditional burning tobacco. Rituals such as hand to mouth, throat hit and a small puff of “smoke”. I can not talk for all other brands but here at A Clean Cigarette, our product comes in 2 parts.
The first section of our e-cigarette is the cartridge. They are pre-loaded with fluid. The fluid comes in nicotine levels that compare with most levels of traditional burning tobacco: non-filter, full flavor, lights and ultra lights. They are also available in a 0 nicotine level for those who just need the other rituals of smoking besides nicotine. The cartridges are disposable. If you bring them into one of our stores we will recycle them for you and pay you .5 cents each. Each cartridge is equivalent to between a pack and a pack and a half of cigarette puffs. Depending on how it is stored and how it is hit. If you have questions about storage or how to best use your A Clean Cigarette click HERE
The second section is the Ion Lithium battery. It is available in a few different styles. The style pictured here is our most popular. We do however offer both smaller and larger versions. When combined with the cartridge it will have a similar look and feel to a burning tobacco cigarette. The batteries are rechargeable using any of our available chargers.
Are Cig-a-Likes a vapor product? Yes. They are exactly the same general ingredients that you may find in other vapor products and they use the same fluid as the “juice” used in generation 2 and 3 products such as mods or hookah pens. Most vapors use a PG / VG mix and various flavorings combined with nicotine. We hear all the time that we are not exactly sure what is in the fluid, but that simply is not the case. At least it is not the case with A Clean Cigarette brand electronic cigarettes. I can not speak for other fluids on the market. We have funded multiple lab analyses on our product in an effort to know EXACTLY what we have in our fluid.

How can I tell what generation a product is? There are currently 3 generations of products available on the market. 1st generation products are designed to look and feel like a traditional cigarette. They are sometimes rechargeable like ours are, sometimes they are not. They come with the nicotine fluid in pre-filled sealed cartridges so you never have to come in contact or risk a mess. Generations 2 and 3 are not typically pre-filled, the fluid must be purchased separately in most cases. They may have replaceable parts that need be bought and replaced and in the case of 3rd generation they can be modified to look and work in a multitude of different ways. The chart below contains more information for you.
Alright, so there you have it. I hope you better understand some of the terminology that is used here on our blog daily. If you have any questions please drop me an e-mail to AccAnswers@gmail.com. Thank you for stopping in!
