|Lance from Tucson, AZ reviewed Green Smoke model 'Green Smoke' on October 25 2011:|
OverallI have tried all sorts of methods over the last decade trying to quit smoking, including many other brands of e-cigarettes. This is the first time in at least 5 years that I've gone a week without buying a pack. Not only is the vapor plentiful and realistic in taste, but the batteries have been lasting me all day AND the "Flavormax" cartridges also last for a very long time! I went from smoking Camel Wides every 1/2 hour - an hour, and now I just puff on this e-cig every few minutes. I've only gone through 6 cartridges in the last 11 days!
Value vs. Cost
For those who mentioned cartridges running out too fast, my friend had the same problem, until I pointed out in the user manual where it talks about the best way to conserve cartridge life. if you aren't going to use it for hours, for example while sleeping, stick the little rubber thing back on the bottom and set it upright on your desk or something.
It does make sense that liquids would evaporate if you leave them exposed through a big hole for hours on end.
As for battery life, just don't over-charge the batteries! When the light on the charger turns green, unplug them!
