What Happened to E-Lites?
If you’ve been around from the earliest days of vaping, the name E-Lites will, no doubt, be familiar to you.
But when was the last time you saw this brand on the shelves? The E-Lites brand seems to have disappeared into thin air, and yet at one time, its name was synonymous with e-cigs in the UK.
So, whatever happened to this iconic brand? Let’s take a wander down memory lane and remind ourselves all about this vintage e-cigarette brand.
E-Lites first appeared on shelves back in 2009 – the brainchild of founder and CEO, Adrian Everett.
Everett himself had a colourful past, having enjoyed a successful RAF career while investing in property.
Unfortunately, it all went wrong in 2007 when he had to declare bankruptcy when he could no longer meet his mortgage repayments.
Working with his business partners, Everett managed to raise sufficient funds to found the E-Lites company, and from humble beginnings, the company took off in a big way.
Its cigarette-like appearance made it a popular choice among those trying to quit the habit, and within just 5 years were selling £43 million-worth of products per year.
Everett sold E-Lites in 2014 to a company called Japanese Tobacco International, although Everett himself remained in a managerial role, furthering the brand’s growth internationally.
Eventually, the brand merged with Logic, and the Logic Vapes brand was the result, producing e-cig products in the USA and UK alike.
So, the iconic E-Lites name is no more. Once an alias for every type of e-cig, since it merged with a Big Tobacco company, its iconic brand hasn’t stood the test of time.
Can I still buy E-Lites Electronic cigarettes?
E-Lites were once everywhere in the UK, in every major retailer nationwide. However today, E-Lites can’t be found anywhere – unless you’re going to go digging through your corner shop’s dusty stockroom!
No self-respecting online retailer has stocked this brand for years; however its latest incarnation, Logic Vapes, can be found quite easily.
The Logic Vapes brand stocks a wide range of vape pens. From clearomizer, cartomizer and capsule mod vape pens to semi-disposables, the Logic Vapes range also includes its own e-juice vape capsules and e-liquids for a full package to get vapers started.
Their tobacco-flavoured capsules are especially good for ex-smokers, and their 18mg nicotine strength is the best choice to replicate the classic smoking experience.
