I posted in the original thread that i had ordered these and a lot of people were curious to as if they were actually worth the money. Mine came in today so I figured I could answer that question.
I ordered mine on Sunday night and it got here today. The company guarantees delivery of the product to your house within 5 days. It did take them until Tuesday to physically send out the kit though.
The Starter kit.
Inside I was sent two chargers, two batteries, one cigarette, and a special battery pack. You can actually charge the battery pack (its the cigarette looking case on the right) and use it to charge the batteries as you go. So technically its pretty much a mobile charging station. Each charge of the pack will charge the cigarette batteries up to six times before you need to recharge the pack. Btw, each cigarette battery charge will last you about two cartridges (about a pack and a half of normal cigarettes).
The sweet thing about the battery pack is that it acts like a case for everything. You can store 5 cartridges, an extra cigarette, as well as charge your extra battery.
Part of the starter kit consists of a carton of cartridges ($25 value) . Each carton contains 25, which is about equal to 350 cigarettes. A carton of cigarettes around here is 45-50$ (200 total cigarettes for the non-smokers), so its a pretty good deal even if you only get 300~ cigarettes from use.
I bought the Classic Full Flavor cartridges. They also have a bunch of other flavors such as Java, Menthol, etc. You can also buy different strengths. They have Full Flavor, Light, Ultra Light, and even a non-nicotine version.
After letting it charge for an hour, i took out a cartridge and plugged everything together to make a complete cigarette. Its very simple.
After getting everything assembled, i took a hit. As you inhale, the tip glows blue as if it were an actual cigarette (minus the blue of course). When you exhale it looks like actual smoke, but in reality its an odorless vapor. I took about five hits and I could not smell anything. The cartridges last a good while. You can get about 140 or so hits off of it (about 10-15 cigarettes depending on the user.) They taste smoother than cigarettes and fulfill the nicotine cravings just as well as traditional cigarettes.
Is it worth the 59$?
Yes. I can honestly say that this is the coolest thing I've used in a while. Not only do you set yourself up to save a ton of cash, but you can smoke ANYWHERE. If these two reasons are not enough, then I really don't know what else you could ask for.
*The battery pack seems a little flimsy and cheap, but its no big deal.
*Having to order cartridges every time I'm low could be a bit of a headache considering that you can only buy them online. However, a carton should last a long time.
Other than those few points, I really see it as a good investment. The price is about 60 bucks shipped to your door, but you have to consider that 25$ of the cost is for the cartridges and another $5 for shipping. So I think its a steal.
If anyone has any questions, just PM me. I made this fairly quick and may have left somethings out.
