|Robert from Houston, TX reviewed SmokeTip model 'Smoke Tip Starter Kit' on October 26 2011:|
OverallI had been in the market for an e-cig for a while, but the number of choices and my tendency to put off doing research kept me from diving in. But after about a year of smoking a pack a day, the money I was spending started bugging me enough that I decided it was time.
Value vs. Cost
After finally finding a decent website that had a high enough number of user reviews to make me feel like I could make an informed decision, I decided to go with Smoketip. 1) Because of the high number of positive reviews, 2) because of the lifetime warranty, and 3) because of the price.
I ordered on a Wednesday, received the next Saturday, and haven't bought an actually pack of cigs yet (and don't plan to). Granted, it's been less than a week that I've been using the kit, but I'm very pleased, and I feel that I make a great purchasing decision. The box the kit comes in is useful for carting around all the individual components when you head out of the day. Depending on how I'm using the batteries, they last between 3-6 hours, which I think is great (I puff pretty frequently). They charge pretty quickly, and the warranty on them gives me piece of mind.
I ordered the menthol 16 mg with the kit and a variety 16 mg pack. I enjoy all the flavors quite a lot (except maybe the regulars, which taste a bit stale compared to the other more vivid flavors). I've been switching between many of the carts, two are spent, but they seem to have a good life to them. I feel satisfied with their consistency and amount of vapor.
And I honestly love the vapor experience. I don't miss the traditional smoke from a cigarette at all. I like feeling the stream of hot vapor hit my tongue as I inhale. I like holding it in my mouth before breathing it into my lunges. And my body already feels more health after going half a week without all the carcinogens and cravings for traditional smokes.
I'll certainly update this review if anything goes awry, but as of this moment, I'm a big Smoketip fan.
