MENTHOL CIGARETTE BAN! Time For An Alternative?

MENTHOL CIGARETTE BAN! Time For An Alternative?

Published by Vjuice Eliquid UK on 13th May 2020

From the 20th May 2020 it will be illegal to sell menthol cigarettes in the UK. If you're a menthol smoker then no doubt you are now weighing up other options and alternatives. PHE (Public Health England) has declared that e-cigarettes are 95% safer than smoking conventional cigarettes. This is the perfect time for all you smokers to try the healthier alternative which is vaping.So you're considering making the move over to vaping when the ban comes into force? Well we have some recommendations for you, even though the sale of Menthol Cigarettes will be banned this does not affect the sale of Menthol E-Liquid.

Firstly you're going to need a vape kit to start you off. We recommend a Mouth-to-Lung device, This will be the closest type of e-cigarette you can purchase that will simulate a cigarette.

We have a couple of devices that spring to mind but it's all down to personal preference, The 2 devices we recommend are slightly different but have the same basis.

Recommendation #1


This kit offers a mouth-to-lung (MTL) style vape which is often favoured by those new to vaping as it replicates how a smoker inhales a cigarette. Even with the “Pen-Styled” design it packs an amazing 1300mah battery which is a high capacity battery for this type of device and should last you the day as a moderate smoker.

This kit also offers Airflow control and 3 different wattage modes, This may seem confusing to the newbies but it is a very simple concept. Airflow control is the black rubber ring below the tank, as you turn the airflow control you will notice it covers the holes, The more holes covered the tight the draw will be and vice versa more holes open the looser the draw. Innokin have also added three different wattage modes; Cool (10.5W), Medium (12W) and Warm (13.5W). These small settings are simple enough to use but effective enough to tweak to suit each vaper.


  • 1 x Endura T18II battery (1300mAh)
  • 1 x Prism T18II tank
  • 2× 1.5 ohm coils (1 pre-installed)
  • 1 x Magnetic cap
  • 1 x Spare mouthpiece (drip tip)
  • 1 x Spare o-ring set
  • 1 x USB charging cable
  • 1 x Instruction manual
  • Warranty card, warning booklet & battery warning card

Recommendation #2


The Aspire Rover 2 kit takes compact vaping to a new level with it’s fit in your hand size and legendary Nautilus vaping performance.

This device packs an awesome digital display that packs a lot of information, Battery level, Wattage, Voltage, Coil resistance reading (Ohms) and Draw timer. This allows your to really refine your vape to suit your personal needs.

The Rover 2 uses the new exciting NX40 mod, which boasts a huge 2200 mAh battery that delivers up to 40 watts of power. To complete the new Rover 2, Aspire took the legendary Nautilus XS and matched its performance to the NX40 mod.

The new Nautilus XS tank system uses the Nautilus X coil with enhanced features such as top airflow adjustment from MTL to restricted DTL, easy to use filling system, and cooling fins next to the mouth tip to reduce heat build up. The Rover 2 is a small, compact design that fits in the palm of your hand, but has the performance of mods twice its size.


  • 1 x Aspire NX40 Mod
  • 1 x Aspire Nautilus XS Tank
  • 1 x Nautilus XS Mesh Coil 0.7 Ohm (18 - 22w)
  • 1 x Nautilus X U-tech Coil 1.8 Ohm (12 - 16w)
  • 1 x Spare 2ml Glass
  • 1 x Spares
  • 1 x USB C Cable
