What Happened to E-Lites?

What happened to E-lites e-cigarettes?

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.

  1. I have just purchased a e-lites curve so I am just getting used to it. One thing that you are not told is the very unpleasant smell that they produce. When I was at school we used to fish glue and it smells just like that. Is this normal. But apart from that they perform exceptionally well with a good hit at the back of your thraught. I will post another review after l have had it for a couple of months

  2. I don’t know if they have changed smth since 2011 that I bought mine…..
    But the one I have/had is really bad. I can’t even remember if I threw it away. The body of the cigarett is the battery, which is ok I guess, but needs recharging quite often. And the filters are actually cotton with a drop of liquid. For the price that you pay to buy all these, it is a damn robbery. Try to open a filter and see what you pay for. And then compare this with a real vaping mod.
    You will get what I mean.
    And not to forget…..these e-cigarettes have one great disadvantage. The filter,,,that looks like a real filter and hold the nicotine capsule. It gets pierced by the atomizer as it goes into the capsule when you screw the filter on. On the other side there is a whole that makes your nicotine “evaporate”. The whole thing is not air tight effectively. You smoke one day….then you leave it aside…you take it again after a few days and the whole thing is dry. So unless you smoke everything in short time then forget it.
    Anyway. As I said, that was back in 2011. I hope they got better. But if those cigs are still as I said, then keep away.
