|Clayton from Saint Cloud, MN reviewed EverSmoke model 'Basic Standard Auto Battery' on February 06 2012:|
OverallJust wanted to throw this out there for anyone that is cruising these reviews looking to make a decision. I've tried several other brands of e-cigs (V2, blu, smoking everywhere) and this is BY FAR the best I've tried out.
Value vs. Cost
Vapor is awesome and you can feel a good throat hit. I started with th 18mg carts to see how comparable they are to the "reds" I usually smoke. I Have to say I'm impressed. Only thing is be sure to read through the material on their website about cartridge strengths and how they are compared to "full flavor", "lights" and "ultra lights". I let a friend try the 18mg's and after a coughing fit, he said the burn was way too much. He smokes "lights".
Battery life is far better than I expected. I use an Eversmoke standard auto battery and usually get an entire day using the thing every hour. I do find that I need to draw on it less times than a regular cigarette, just because you know when you have had enough to satisfy that craving.
I haven't had to deal with Customer Service directly. The one issue I did have, had to do with shipping methods. I ordered my starter kit with 3-5 day priority. I was emailed a UPS tracking number when the order was actually sent US Postal. Kind of confusing when I expected to see it tracked through the carrier they emailed and it showed up in the mailbox, rather than at the door.
Eversmoke does offer a scheduled cartridge delivery system which I thought was very cool. You can set it to order whenever you want.
Overall cost of the starter kit is comparable, but the quality far exceeds other brands in my opinion.
If you are serious about purchasing an e-cig, give these guys a try. Order their flavor pack and see if you find a flavor you like.
Thanks, Eversmoke, for a quality product I can actually USE!
