I tried Pure Cigs for the first time a couple years ago and while they were decent back then, their e-cigs have come a long way. They have made some major and impressive updates. First, they’ve updated their website and it is much nicer looking and easier to navigate. Also, I have had the chance to try out a few of their more recent product releases – the Pure XL and most recently the awesome Pure ELiTE.
If you’re a first time e-smoker and you are looking for an e-cig very similar to your traditional tobacco cigarettes, I would still recommend Pure’s G4 Starter Kits. They are a great first step into the e-cig world.
However, if you’re looking for a little more power and longer battery life – try out the Pure XL. It’s much larger and bulkier than the G4 series, but the XL batteries and cartridges last nearly three times longer between charges and changes than the G4′s components.

If you’re looking for EVEN MORE power as well as some additional control over your vaping experience, you have to try out the new Pure ELiTE. First I must say, the ELiTE is one of the coolest looking electronic cigarettes I’ve had my hands on because of the square battery and other features. We got to try out all three-color options – white, black and chameleon – and both of the menthol and tobacco flavors. My favorite by far is the White ELiTE – it just looks sleek and clean. The chameleon colored batteries are nice but they don’t really give that color-changing appearance that you’d expect from chameleon paint. I also prefer the tobacco flavored cartridges – it’s a pleasantly smooth vapor.
Here is where the ELiTE gets even cooler. There are two small buttons and a mirrored LED screen near the bottom of the battery. The first time you press one of the buttons it shows you how much battery life is left. After that you can use the buttons to change the power from 3.3 volts up to 5 volts. You’ll notice that the flavor, temperature and amount of vapor changes depending on the power setting, so this allows each person to find their favorite “sweet-spot.”
Another cool function of the ELiTE battery is that you can turn it off and on by pressing the power button three times in a row. This prevents the battery from frying the cartomizer if it’s accidentally pressed in your pocket. The final nifty feature is that you can plug the retractable charger cord into the bottom of the battery and keep using the ELiTE. The cord extends about 3 feet so you can have constant power while you’re sitting at your desk. I’m very impressed by Pure’s new e-cig models and look forward to whatever else the have in store for the future!
