OverallAVOID THESE AND GET A REAL ECIGARETTE!
Value vs. Cost
The Fifty-One Trio is basically pretty crappy. Plain & simple. Check any of the reliable, unbiased review sites from vaping enthusiasts and this company doesn't even register in the top 10... or 20 for that matter.
All in all, this company has done more harm than good. It makes me wonder how many people have tried these lame, under powered, over priced units and dismissed ALL ecigs as gimmicks because of them.
The amount of vapor is weak. You don't really get much at all. Kind of like smoking 1/10th of an ultra light. It just makes you want a real cigarette.
The flavor is alright... for a few puffs. The first few taste like plastic. Then you'll get a few luke-warm "teaser" puffs. Then... burnt plastic.
The carts don't... didn't last long at all and I used to refill mine constantly... until they changed the design so can't refill them. So now you have to keep buying THEIRS... over and over and over. Now, they will break your wallet just about as bad as cigarettes.
The batteries are junk and constantly need replacing. And they don't hold a great charge to begin with. And at $50 bucks a pop for a replacement?! SERIOUSLY?!
So the bottom line is... the Fifty-One Trio ecigs suck. Stay away. Get something decent like a V2, Green Cig, Go-Go, etc. Most ANY of the REAL ecigs will cost HALF and will run you a TINY FRACTION to refill. They'll be more reliable, last longer, give better puffs, taste better and cost less.
