Ecigclick Vape Awards 2016 – Results

A big thank you goes out to all that took part in voting this year in our biggest turnout to date.

Despite the changes facing us all 2016 has proven to be a superb year for product and it’s great to recognise some of the best the vaping world has to offer.

So a big shout-out must go to all the brands, groups, websites, stores (both online and off), YT channels and event organisers. As well as the many that weren’t featured in the awards this year.

Without them vaping wouldn’t be where it is today. Keep up the good work and may we all vape on!

Decisions

In the last few days of voting there was talk as to whether Approved Vapers FB group should have been in the ‘best forum category’ and that they should be disqualified for offering a prize to their readers to vote for them.

Firstly I want to address the issue that people had stated that the FB group ‘wasn’t even a forum’. The FB group along, of course, with the Reddit page are places where people discuss and help each other with vaping:

Dictionary definition of ‘Forum’:

A meeting or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged.
“we hope these pages act as a forum for debate”
synonyms:meeting, assembly, gathering, conference, seminar, convention, colloquy, convocation, congress, rally, council, symposium, conclave, congregation, synod, that prizes to encourage

Secondly: The prize incentive

Offering a prize to specific readers, while it may be looked upon as unfair play by some, is not against the terms of entry for the Ecigclick Awards. Companies have offered incentives for their readers/customers to vote for them in many different high profile awards for many years.

I've been vaping since 2010 and been cigarette free ever since. Ecigclick was started to take a closer look at the mixed bag of e cigs that were available at the time. We have gone from a handful of reviews in 2010 to now covering a huge range of vaping gear with over 100 reviews and counting today with the help of the great review team we have here! I'm available on the blog most days, if you have any questions just use the contact tab and I'll get right back to you! Vape on...

  1. Thank You so much Ecigclick for having this giveaway. To win a Vaporized Nomads Boss 3000 DNA250 mod is a dream come true. I can honestly say I can’t stop smiling.
    This is something I looked at many times but just couldn’t afford to buy, really I can’t thank you enough. I’m just blown away.

  2. Good luck to all.

    To those devaluing approved vapers. As much as it’s not a solely dedicated forum the amount of help and files given on the page are the reason they got voted there. I see why the POTV crew are pissed about it as they won it the past 4 years.

    Things change, you can’t win all the time! In saying that. It’s been interesting to watch all the votes and places change. Some unfamiliar names out there which got me to check them out. The good thing about this!

    Best of luck to all and congratulations to the winners whoever they may be.

    • I think the problem lies with the buying of votes. How can you consider the title a win when its been bought with £100 credit? It just makes a mockery of the whole system.

  3. It’s a shame that the Forum class is going to be won by a Facebook page because they’re offering £100 prize for voters. It’s hardly in the spirit of the awards

  4. It’s just a shame that some competitors are buying votes, offering a chance to win a £100 bold vape credit for voting for the ‘approved vapers’ group is surely against competition rules?

  5. The ‘Best Vaping Forum’ is puddling me.
    There’s a Facebook page leading the voting? That isn’t a forum, is it?
    And in addiction to that their members are openly placing multiple votes, and the company that sponsors the Facebook page, BoldVape, is offering a £100 prize draw incentive to all who place a vote for the page.

    Seems ever such a little bit corrupt to me, and cheapens what should be a prestigious award. It’s now worth very little.
    Shame.

    • I agree with you. Offering an incentive to vote makes the vote seem worthless and not in the spirit of the awards.
      If you google “vaping forum” you don’t get facebook links!

    • I agree. It does leave a sour taste. Not much of a level playing field if an incentive is being offered. I hope that their multiple voting will be addressed.

    • It’s strange that what essentially is a selling page for a vendor can be classed as a forum, the fact that there is an incentive to vote also leaves a sour taste

    • For the record, the Cambridge Dictionary offers two definitions for forum: “a situation or meeting in which people can talk about a problem or matter especially of public interest:” and “a place on the internet where people can leave messages or discuss particular subjects with other people at the same time”. Both of which describe the AV group perfectly in my opinion…

  6. I packed in a 30 year smoking habit about 3 months ago thanks to sub ohm vaping, I did try MTL vaping last year but it just wasn’t for me, luckily a few months back a friend introduced me to the wonders of sub ohm vaping & I’ve never looked back, I absolutely love it, I even mix my own juices now & have just started making my own coils with mixed success up to now lol.

  7. Been vaping for 5 years now. No doctor visits at all because of nasty coughing and being sick. Its just a much healthier life style for anyone.

  8. 2016 has been a great year for innovation, I managed to quit smoking in 2016 due to all the Sub Ohm tanks and mods released by the various vendors. 2017 is going to be interesting with the TPD etc etc.. Thanks for the giveaway, good luck to all

  9. Thank you so much for this chance, Been vaping for 8 years and have entered so many contest and have won a couple but none like this,! I am disabled bedridden but so thankful that my lungs or just fine, now! My journey has been long, seen so much good come out of vaping, but I have also seen some bad from family members my Mother and Father could be alive today had they just tried something, but I have to remember that vaping was not around yet, I sit here today at the age of 60, the very same age both my parents died from smoking. I get really sad around the Christmas Holidays because my mother passed away just before Christmas 1992, To this day I need my Mom, how silly for a 60 year old woman to still say publicly that I still need my Mom. Had vaping been around I know she would have been hear, so I take that and always try to vape it forward, and always take the initiative to help people less fortunate giving vaping supplies to people who really need it and teach them how to save themselves. So Thank you for this opportunity!!

  10. Vaping has saved my life, literally… 3 years ago I had epiglottitis brought on by an infection caused by smoking. had to be put into an induced coma, 3 operations on my throat, double pneumonia and abcess in my throat that had to be cut out. died 2wice and took 5 weeks to come out of the coma and 18mths to return to work…..
    I owe my life to vaping as I would have still smoked unless I had been introduced to the E-CIG…..

    thanks for reading my story

  11. Ok, definitely done. Nice poll. Some of my votes are for things that are on my wishlist, such as the standard cleito and quad-flex.

  12. Many thanks to whoever nominated VapeCollective for Best Vape Convention / Show 2016! It means a lot to us that whoever you are you had a great time.

    Of course, we won’t win against competition that strong, but it’s nice to see our name there. 🙂

  13. wow so far out there . no real rta’s and were is todds reviews ?
    rose ubertoot next axis ??? very sad state of afairs …
    and why a farce book group ? there are a lot of us out there that dont use it !!

    • All the results above were nominated by vapers in the 1st stage nominations Flearider. So while the above may not be what YOU want it is what the vapers that took the time to nominate wanted.

      Did you put forward your choices?

  14. Starting my 6th year away from fags and finding Vaping.

    Big thanks to all the venders that supply us and keep us all off the stinkies.

    You all play a part in someone’s life and all help keep us fag free.

    Good luck all

  15. I have been vaping for nearly 10 months I haven’t smoked a cigg since I started. This is the best thing ever known to man,(one of the few) however,I have converted a handful of my friends over to the world of vape and we all enjoy the new life style so much. This was a very good survey and I am thankful I got to take it. KEEP CALM AND VAPE ON MY PEEPS.

  16. Wow. Good pool. collecting so many excellent vapor lovers and excellent products
    Really hard to choose. anyway, good luck everyone! vape on!!!!!!!!!!

  17. wow! smok is super popular and i sure am happy i invested in the osub and alien mods. i’m surprised by a lot of these results to be honest.

  18. I was actually kind of surprised on who was ahead on some of these. Nice to see what other people think compared to what I think. Some categories didn’t have what I thought was the best at all. =P

  19. Done! Glad to see some much deserving companies on here. Thanks for the chance. And here’s to another great year in 2017 ????

  20. Well apparently my opinion differs from the popular opinion across the board. I really got to try the Nautilus X, very surprised it beat out the Kayfun. I guess people just don’t like building their coils because that’s the only reason I can think of (unless many just haven’t tried it) that the Kayfun is not the most popular mtl tank.

  21. Voted in most categories, but could not in all as some did not have nominees I’m familiar with!
    Good luck everyone, keep vaping 🙂

  22. Great award pool had a hard time with some of them, some catagories the candidates where equal to me but did managed to pick one 🙂

  23. all the stuff to do with twitter to get extra entries is not working for me, im following sub-ohm magazine and ecigclick but whenever i hit continue it just reloads the page as if ive not even done the survey…Ive done this 3 times now, I logged into twitter externally, no luck, logged in through the option you guys provied and no luck still, kinda bummed, but it was fun taking part anyway. Maybe take a look at your scripts

  24. All done!. A few names missing here and there on the voting lists, but pretty complete overall. Kind of surprised at some of the current voting results as well. Good luck to all in the giveaway!. Cheers!.

  25. Vote casted for best dna 2016 vaporized nomads. Not sure if it registered or not but would love to be in the contest for a chance to win.

    • Hey Chris, there was a nomination stage that everyone had a chance to nominate their favourites. They didn’t get enough votes strangely enough to reach the final stage voting unfortunately.

  26. Good luck to all!
    Can’t believe how far the vaping community has progressed and grown in the past few years!
    Some really great gear and liquids to choose from which makes the choice to stop the dreaded ciggies and embrace the vaping world!

  27. I was absolutely shocked that Aspire products didn’t feature more often if I’m honest – I love my Sub ohm battery and Atlantis tank set up. Good luck to everyone. Merry Christmas. Much love, Aydan x

  28. Decadent vapours are the best for concerntrates and eliquids there very fast and wonder full in my eyes they can not be beat pip pip guys your company is the best in my eyes and i will continue to order my juices best your great

  29. Very UK centric, couldn’t vote intelligently in many questions. Like myvaporstore.com in the USA. Good prices, quick delivery. Nicotine River for roll your own juice supplies. Nice idea for a poll, I’m sure it will be helpful for folks.

  30. i can’t complete the tweet on twitter option! says it has 1 to many characters! and i try deleting a space so i can tweet it, it doesn’t give me the pint for it. please help! 🙁

  31. I don’t think the Hexohm should be in the Mechanical/Unregulated category seeing as it’s neither of those. Other than that, nice poll.

  32. 120 days smoke free today. After 30 years of smoking, I can’t believe how positive the past 4 months has been. I’ve gone from vaping a level 12mg nicotine to a level 1. The guys at my local vape store have gotten to know me so well that they offered me a job! I start my first full shift this morning.

  33. Thanks for voting us in we’re very very humbled to say the least , it’s been a lot of hard work and also fun to say the least . It’s been amazing to see it grow so quickly .
    Approved Vapers Facebook group has been a pleasure to admin and we have some amazing members .
    Working hard to hopefully next rear make the list of reviewers would also be nice .
    Anyways peace and love and big salute to you all .
    Chris and the Approved Vapers Admin and Videos Team .

    Ps some excellent choices there in the categories.

  34. Thanks for chance. A lot of my fae brands weren’t in there (Uncle Junk’s, Charlie’s Chalk Dust, Penguin). Mod of year for me is Minikin 2

  35. I really enjoyed seeing the results of each category as I voted and was so sad to see that the results of the best YouTube channel was kept secret! Lol, nice one. Grimm always wins these ones though. Next time you should have a bonus question that says – Best YouTube channel that ISN’T Grimm Green or PBusardo 😉

    • Haha.. I know Alex, I’m sure there are a lot of people the same! It’s not purely for the surprise element though, there were other reasons to keep the results hidden due to some shenanigans from votes last year!

      Should be a nice surprise though! Been a lot of action on there.

      I hear you with Mr Green & Busardo… As it stands maybe they don’t need a separate category 😉

  36. I am new to vaping but man where has it been all my life… lovin it, thanks ,there is some great stuff out there and even for me some of the choices were tough

    • As I’m sure you understand, that’s the way it can go with these sort of things Zen Vaper. But all the names in all the categories were nominated (in the first stage of votes) by vapers.

  37. Can’t wait to see the end results! Thanks so much for doing all of these awesome giveaways! Good luck everyone ?? and vape on!

  38. good luck to all shops and brands for the award, to all participants for the giveaway and to ecigclick for the chance to be a winner 🙂

  39. VAPING has become a hot topic for all, For almost million ppl that has changed a bad habit for a better choice, it is a no brainier. I think besides the tobacco companies them self its the none smokers that has shut the eyes of others thinking this just another big tobacco move. Wel for me it was a move i had to make, along with my teeth falling out i was about to lose my tongue.I was tired of being cut on and it swelling up almost as big as my mouth always hoping it stop, wel it has. For almost 3 years now ive had very few flare up’s and my life is better with out a doubt. Better due to one thing. VAPING!!THANK YOU GUYS FOR ALL YOU DO…
