There are actually 3 types of electronic cigarettes per number of parts: 1-piece, 2-piece, and the 3-piece. Below is the tabular description and comparison of each.

One piece electronic cigarette generally refers to the disposables. It is a single piece that comes with a battery that is pre-charged making it ready to use as soon as you get it off from the packaging. Once used up, as this is a disposable type, you can simply throw it away. This type of e-cigarette can last to 600-1800 puffs befor battery runs out.

Premium E-Cigarettes brand prides itself on being the first 1-piece e-cigarette produced in the market.

Though note that not all disposable e-cigarettes are 1-piece. Some disposable types come in 2-piece and 3-piece too.

Two piece e-cigarette is mainly composed of two parts: the battery and cartomizer. Cartomizer is a cartridge and atomizer assembled as one.Top e-cigarette companies that offer 2-piece types are V2 Cigs, Green Smoke, Bloog, and Smoke 51.

Three piece e-cigarette is composed of three main parts: battery, atomizer, and the cartridge. Most of the veterans in vaping use this, though it doesn’t imply that it is difficult to use, but because it is customizable or modifiable as all parts come separated.

South Beach Smoke is one of the popular companies in this industry offering both 2-piece and 3-piece types. Other brands that offer 3-piece type are blu Cigs, Safe Cig, NJOY, and Smoking Everywhere.


The good thing about this type of e-cigarette is that it is sold cheapest compared to the two other types. It is recommended to be used for a person who’s curious and experimenting if he/she would like how e-cigarette tastes and if it will work with their lifestyle.


2-piece electronic cigarettes are very convenient to use because as for maintenance, it only requires a change or charge in battery and nicotine cartridge refill replacement.

Another good thing about this type is that the atomizer gets replaced too every time you replace the cartomizer when it runs out of liquid.


It is the most versatile type of electronic cigarette among the three because you can swap out the three different parts when a part becomes defective. You don’t neeed to purchase a new e-cigarette kit again but you just need to replace the part that is not working properly.

Also, it is easier to drip the liquid solution in to the cartridge if you want to change or refill the nicotine or non-nicotine flavored e-liquid. It is the best type of e-cigarette if you are a modder as you can personalize it the way you want your e-cig to work.


Since it is the cheapest among the three, package does not include extra parts such as spare batteries nor chargers though some brands include few extra refill cartridges.


Although it is not impossible to refill the cartomizer, since it atomizer is built into the cartridge, it is difficult to refill nicotine or non-nicotine flavored solution using the dripping method.


Since this type is composed of three parts, it requires the most maintenance. If not properly maintained, batteries and atomizers might not function very well and could lead to unpleasant vaping experience.

Now which one it the best electronic cigarette type for you? Basically it depends in a lot of factors like purpose, smoking habit, lifestyle, and more.

To suggest, if you are unsure yet and not very well decided if you are going to switch from smoking to vaping, try using the disposable type first then you can later on change to another type if you find it fit for you.

If you are sure about e-cigarettes but a busy person, you can try using the 2-piece type as cartomizers generally works wear and tear. If it runs out of e-liquid, you can just simply replace the cartomizer of your desired nicotine strength and flavor then vape on again.

If you have a lot of time for maintaining, experimenting and, modifying electronic cigarettes and you want to use it as your habit and hobby, then consider using the three piece type. Also, if you are a fan of DIY mixing e-liquids and preparing your own recipe for dripping, this is the right type for you.

If you happen to purchase two or three brands or types of e-cigarettes before you find the one that really suits you, fret not as this is normal for all the vapers out there. After all, how many brands of analog cigarettes have you ever tried before until you found your favorite brand right? It’s part of the vaping experience.
