Friend here at work bought one, he seems to like it. Said it was about 200 for a good one. Goodluck, I'll get better details from him.

There is some discussion there. Look for the UK Screwdriver. I have read it's the best. I opted to go the Snus route instead of an E-Cig.

Oh didn't realize these things were smoke-cessation aids.

Carry on.

Note that while some "e-cigarettes" are just fake cigarettes designed to satisfy the habit for the act of smoking, many of them delivered a dose of nicotine when you use them. If your wife has kicked the physical addiction to nicotine, but not the psychological dependancy, this could re-addict her to the drug.

Actual e-cigarettes haven't been approved for sale in the US, so anything you get here will be without nicotine, unless it's been illegally imported.

From the little that i have read it seems like they have interchangable cartridges with varrying amounts of nicotine from high to non. That is something that I have to make sure is available.
