British American Tobacco’s cute Pebble has just been given a makeover and it’s a little cracker that fully deserves immediate promotion to our one spot.
This is easily the smallest, most pocketable and convenient vaporising unit on the market right now. Its flat pebble shape is perfect for stashing in even the tightest of slim jeans pockets and a boon for those who might occasionally sneak a quick puff where they shouldn’t.
The Pebble is a conventional e-liquid vaporiser that uses disposable pre-sealed cartridges in six different flavours (from Golden Tobacco and Tingling Mint to Wild Berries and Fresh Apple) and three nicotine strengths (6, 12 and 18mg).
A sealed cartridge system like this is far and away the best option for beginners and those who just want to vape without the rigmarole of having to fill a chamber with sticky e-liquid. With this model you simply swap cartridges whenever you want to change flavours.
The Pebble couldn’t be easier to use. Simply push in a disposable e-liquid cartridge (£5.99 for two), charge it up via the Mini USB port, press the titchy ‘on’ button and puff. There is no need to hold in buttons while you draw on this model as the heating coil is activated automatically. Against all odds, the Pebble produces a substantial amount of vapour, too.
Of all the vaporisers I’ve tested, this is the model I use the most – it’s just so small and practical. The new model – replete with Dodge Viper-style racing stripes – is due to start shipping in early 2018.
