Is Nicocig Discontinued? What Do I Do Now?
Friday, 10 July 2020 | Eugene
Regrettably, Philip Morris International have permanently ceased production of the Nicocig range of e-cigarettes, and we are sorry to say it is no longer available. At Health and Care, we take pride in our duty to provide the best possible products to our customers, and are disappointed that due to factors beyond our control, we will no longer be able to supply a product that is loved and depended on by so many.
What Are We Doing About It?
In our commitment to you, we have taken great care to source a product that we are confident provides a near-identical look, feel and taste to that of Nicocig. Since the news of the discontinuation, we have studied the market closely, weighing up the available options to find a product that will repair the hole left in the daily routines and smoking cessation battles of our customers.
To make the transition from Nicocig as easy as possible, we are offering a free OK Vape Starter Kit for any Nicocig customer looking to make the switch to OK Vape. To claim your starter kit, please use the voucher code "switch2ok".
You can claim your free starter kit by entering the above code in the shopping basket when buying any OK Vape product; the code should be entered in the box labelled "Coupon / Voucher". Please note that this offer is limited to one per customer and/or household.
What Can I Do Now?
We know how important Nicocig is to the lifestyle of our customers, so we've been working with OK Vape to provide a product that will replace the Nicocig with the least change possible. We're confident that the OK Vape E-Cigarette is the closest alternative on the market, with the same weight, feel, size and usability as the Nicocig we have come to depend on. We sincerely believe that this product can not only replace Nicocig in your daily life, but save you money as well.
How is OK Vape Different from Nicocig?
We've taken great care to select the OK Vape range for you, as it is nearly identical to the Nicocig in almost every way. The way you take your draw, replace your cartomisers and charge your device will be nearly identical, providing the same feel and ease of use. There are some small differences that you may notice, namely:
Is the Nicocig E-Cigarette Gone for Good?
Barring an unforeseen turnaround in the corporate strategy of Philip Morris International, the halting of Nicocig production appears to be final. We at Health and Care unfortunately have no say in this matter, and we can assure you that if we were able to continue to provide Nicocig, we would do everything in our power to do so.
Will the OK Vape E-Cigarette Feel the Same in the Hand?
The way the product feels in the hand was one of our primary concerns, and the OK Vape E-Cigarette is identical in this regard. The size and weight mimic the Nicocig perfectly, and we are assured in our assertion that makes it the best like-for-like replacement available.
For a detailed breakdown about the look and feel of an OK Vape E-Cigarette, please see our article What Does the OK Vape E-Cigarette Look Like?
Is the Taste the Same?
Everyone's taste preferences are different, but we're confident the taste of the OK Vape flavours are as close to Nicocig as can be. OK Vape Tobacco Refills are an ideal replacement for Nicocig's tobacco flavour, while the OK Vape Menthol Refills are the closest alternative to Nicocig menthol around!
Which Strength Should I Choose?
To help you achieve the same satisfaction you've enjoyed from Nicocig, we've put together the chart below to guide you to the right strength for you based on your previous vaping preferences.

How Long Does the Battery Last?
The Nicocig and OK Vape e-cigarettes are nearly identical in design, and feature the same size of battery. You'll receive the same convenience and all-day vaping with your OK Vape E-Cigarette that you've come to enjoy from Nicocig.
How Does the OK Vape E-Cigarette Feel to Draw?
As the mouthpiece and aperture size are identical in terms of size and feel, you'll get the same level of resistance from the OK Vape E-Cigarette as the Nicocig. Providing you select the correct strength using our chart above, you will be able to gain the same level of satisfaction with each puff that you are used to.
Does the OK Vape E-Cigarette Provide the Same Nicotine Hit?
The OK Vape e-liquid used in each cartridge is manufactured in the UK to provide a precise level of nicotine per millilitre. This means that you can rest assured that every draw will provide you with the same satisfaction as the Nicocig E-Cigarette has for years.
Is the OK Vape Design the Same as Nicocig?
The designs are identical in terms of size and function, as both are made up of two pieces that simply screw together. Once the two pieces are together, as with Nicocig, you can start puffing without any hassle.

How Long Does Each Cartridge Last?
OK Vape advise that their cartridges last as long as 25 traditional cigarettes, which is exactly the same as the 25 cigarette equivalence of the Nicocig cartridges. While the actual length of use will depend on your individual vaping style, this means that a OK Vape cartridge should last you just as long as your Nicocig cartridges.
Due to the fact that packs of OK Vape Refills contain five rather than three individual refill cartridges, you actually save money on each pack when compared to purchasing Nicocig. Each pack of OK Vape refills include the approximate equivalent of 125 cigarettes, giving you unbeatable value for money.
How Do I Charge the OK Vape E-Cigarette?
As this was another important factor in our decision, we have confirmed that the charging process is identical between the OK Vape and the Nicocig E-Cigarettes. Simply attach the OK Vape battery to the OK Vape USB charger, and plug your charger into the exact same port you used to charge your Nicocig.
Can I Trust the OK Vape Brand?
We wanted to ensure the product we selected was tried and trusted, which is why we chose OK Vape, who are already loved by thousands of customers across the UK. These customers trust the OK Vape E-Cigarette because of its reliable quality, which has given us the confidence to recommend them to the customers relying on our service.
Is the OK Vape E-Cigarette Available Anywhere Else?
Yes, OK Vape products are widely available in supermarkets, petrol station and newsagents. As with our retailing of Nicocig, we are sure that we will be able to provide superior pricing and customer service to our competitors in all departments.
